Let's fence off the old WR building so we don't have the reminder of the past. Then we could whack off 4-5 nice spots off the front and stick an Outback, Chili's, Red Lobster, and Olive Garden. Dreamin on a quiet Sunday afternoon! Wake up jack!

Dream big! If we had meeting facilities to bring people here and places for ball tournaments we could get nice restaurants with all the people they would bring in.

Batesville is going under. You know there is no stability when people around here may soon have no place to clock in and hang chickens.

I would beg to differ with your assessment. FutureFuel has a strong and growing workforce, Bad Boys is still going strong, Wildcat Minerals is going strong shipping sand for the Fayetteville Shale, Hexion is well under way with the construction of it's facility and another 15-20 jobs, the DHS call center has already hired 50 or so toward it's goal of 100-150 when the building is finished, the announcement of 270 WRMC jobs over the next 5 years when the construction of the 4 story addition is finished, the construction project for the highway project starting March 1 will keep folks working, the buyout of Townsends by Peco Foods will bring growth and stability to that company and the continuing construction of Batesville's 45-50 million dollar wastewater facility all point to a town that's moving forward, not dying.

You should get out more and see what a real town looks like. As long as you have the old hypocritical baptist blood running this place it will never thrive. I mean we live in a dry county! Really? In 2011 we live in a freaking dry county!

Townsends was brought by a investment Firm the last
time a investment Firm brought a plant in this town
was GDX and it went under in two years and there was
jobs lost . Any time a new Company buys a another there always will be job lost

Batesville in another year will be like Bauxite AR
broke even the Mayor is broke NE Arkansas is Dry
there is no money

Waterparks, baseball fields... really? You guys are still trying to cram that crap down our throats? It got voted "NO". Give it a rest. Batesville needs jobs for people that dont have them. Not slippity slides for the people that do. If it's that big of a deal, fix the turd parks we already have.. That nobody ever goes to other then games because they are affraid of getting mugged or torn apart by the out of control wildlife that has been running rabid in them.
