What are you kooks talking about snookie for? Lady asked a question and she gets amateur hour jokes about NJ?
Listen, if you have the money to be a snowbird and live outside of town then bradford can be pretty nice.
This leads me to the local politics of the area. Once again if you have money you're halfway there. Old money runs the town. If you kiss the right asses, and do enough dirt for the right people you can thrive, if not you will most likely languish. 75% of the community lives under the poverty line. Let that sink in a moment.
The health care at BRMC is pretty lack luster. You mentioned you're 60. They have insufficient equipment and are understaffed.
Another member mentioned University of Pittsburgh at Bradford (UPB) and there are learned, decent people that are members of the community. Tim Zankis (sp), Dave soriano, Greg Page to name a few.
Never heard of Tim Zankis, Dave Soriano, or Greg Page. If they are learned and decent, good for them. I love living in the outskirts of Bradford, and that's without knowing these 3 paragons of wisdom!
As for BRMC, it has its good points.....mostly for flying ppl out to Pittsburgh or Erie for "better" care, although Pittsburgh was a nightmare for me twice and I'd have rather stayed in BRMC.
75% under the poverty level seems high, but on a warm spring day, it will seem low! If you like a daily parade of tattooed and pierced young girls pushing multiple strollers with their sperm donors tagging along smoking ciggies and swillin Mountain Dew, then consider it free entertainment. (well, not really free, we pay out the nose for these ppl to procreate here!)
As for our local leaders, they couldn't lead us out of a wet paper bag, even if it was to get to our new STATE-OF-THE-ART walking bridge.
On the bright side, there is a fund raiser for one cause or another, at least once a month, and it always includes all the draft beer you can drink! And the Festivals here a start in May with the "Stinkfest", (yes, the real name!), and end with the "Italian fest".....both excuses for more beer drinking. Plus some Fall and Garlic festivals in nearby towns. Did I mention the multitude of Bars? Yep, got those too!
