$132K of Grant to Combat Goth Returned

BLUE SPRINGS, Mo. - Almost half of a $273,000 grant awarded in 2002 to fight the Goth culture in Blue Springs has been returned because of a lack of interest — and the absence of a real problem.

Blue Springs received the grant two years ago from the Youth Outreach Unit, money the city and U.S. Rep. Sam Graves trumpeted proudly as a way to fight a perceived Goth problem.

But $132,000 of the grant was returned because officials never found much of a problem with the Goth culture, which some students called a fad that most people eventually outgrow.
Slightly more than $118,000 of the money was earmarked for therapy, assessment and case management, and the plans also included a series of town meetings to discuss the issue.

"It never happened because referring someone for looking, acting Goth is not a concept that ever got imbedded in people's heads," project manager Allyce Ford said of the therapy proposal.

The town hall meetings didn't happen, either, she said, because there wasn't enough interest in the community to conduct them.

About halfway through the project, the focus shifted from Goths to counter cultures and negative influences facing children, Ford said.

"You have to admit if you saw one, two, three, four or more people dressed in traditional Goth, it would be discerning," she said. "Those kids have every right to be there. I hope the lessons you're teaching are tolerance and understanding."

Assistant City Administrator Eric Johnson said despite the change in focus, the project helped dispel myths and stereotypes associated with the Goth culture.


"That was part of the goal," Johnson said. "If we were able to accomplish that, we are able to accomplish something effective."

It was a stupid idea. Goths aren't a problem. When I see someone in handcuffs on the local news, or a composite sketch of someone wanted for rape or whatever, it's never a skinny white boy with black hair and makeup.

I don't know.. Maybe it's the "holier than thou" attitude, rank stench of patchouli and clove cigarettes, the grating voice of Dani Filth, the constant whining and bitching about "not being understood", the intellectual posturing, the hypocrisy, and being subjected to a throng of fat goth girls in too-small fishnet shirts and pleather pants.

Lets hope this doesn't become a trend.

Your tax dollars at work.

Seriously, if you want to put an end this sort of social engineering then you have to cut taxes. The politicians and bureacrats will not be able to fund these programs if they don't have the money.

You seem to get some sort of kick out of digging up old ass threads and then trying to spout your boring ass crap like anyone gives a rat shit 4-6 years on. Christ, you suck.

Socialism! The root of all that is evil and wicked! Socialism caused my mates arm to fall off! BAN SOCIALISTS FROM WORKING IN HOSPITALS!

What is it with you and socialists!?!

I bet, along with you going to your room every night, hugging your fucking AK .47 and you magnum, sitting at your window, aiming for your SUV, itchy trigger finger at the ready, just incase someone walks too close to it, you also have a blow up doll of George Bush that you like to sick your dick in.

You are all levels of shitty.
