Ok folks i am new to Brookhaven and not so sure this town holds any grounds for the best city to live in. lmao whats up with all the crack houses here ?? the county calls it's self a dry county but sells beer inside the city limits of Brookhaven. where i am from you can't have it both ways. First of all let me begin by saying i do like the city of brookhaven for the most part. but the peps here can be kinda off the chart with the bs they produce. never seen so much talk about so little maybe it's just the looking outside of the box thing i have going on.

any insight you might have please post away !!!

PLEASE keep in mind i am very new to brookhaven and dont know everything about the city. so while posting back at least post something good about the city

Brookhaven is a pretty nice place to live, although the amount of BS that is floating around is unreal! I have never lived in a place like this until I married a man from here and moved over ... It seems to me that new industry and new businesses are discouraged because of the high rent for commercial property and all of the red tape you have to go through to get a business license, etc. You are right about the beer, etc., where I am from DRY means DRY ... LOL Good luck making friends and settling in to our community!

sorry to break this to you but brookhaven is full of mostly 3 types of people:

1. douche guzzling rednecks

2. extremely hypocritical baptists

3. crackheads

you might enjoy it if you are willing to fit in with the crowd. if not, good luck with that.

I sure have seen some of what you folks talk about i guess i should consider moving to some place else like west lincoln. I for the life of me will never understand the laws you guys let these folks impose on you. I was pulled over by the bh finest and asked where i was going and searched my vehicle for no apparent reason other then he wanted to know what i had to offer other then a cig and a diet coke. listen close friends they can not search your shit untill they prove you guilty before hand. I have seen so far if they pull you over your ass is guilty of some crime before they even get to your car door. Thank god for good nothern lawyers

oh yeah, i almost forgot about the crooked and corrupt police and sheriff forces in brookhaven and lincoln county! what a joke.

let's start with police chief henderson. he's an ok guy, but the double standards begin with drug dealing members of his own family (ouch!) and unfortunately don't end there.

oh, and you're probably too new to know about recently resigned lincoln county sheriff wiley calcote. he was indicted on 15 counts of embezzlement, plead guilty to only one, resigned, and got out with just a slap on the wrist. the calcote family is full of good-ole-boy wackos. who was that calcote who pulled out his loaded gun at his son's little league game and started threatening everybody? he got off without even a slap on the wrist.

i hope you have nothing against racist rednecks, because if you're moving to west lincoln that's about all you'll find.

there are plenty worse places to live in brookhaven, to be sure. and there are in truth some nice things about the town. but there are so many reasons why i could never live there again. just visiting once every few years is quite enough for me. and whenever i need a laugh or two, i look up brookhaven news online. bwahaha.

my sympathy to those of you who live in b-town. a moment of silence for you.

if i could sum up living in brookhaven in just one word, it would have to be "oppressive".

Wow so much info on the bad things !!! I did not know the entire police force was loaded with corruption like this. I cant speak for eevryone but the reason for wanting to move to west lincoln was for the schools !!! the bh school system sucks to beat hell my friend. as far as racist pigs i cant control how they act here this has been the norm for hundreds of years and not one person will every change there way of thinking and i am not up for changeing them either. Being the yankee ass that i am i tend to keep to my self. what do you guys think of wesson ?? ant good or bad to be said about this tiny little southern town ??

Brookhaven was the town of choice for my family and i even moved about 900 miles to be here and come to find out this town was over inflated by the stats and the local media big time. Right now i am just trying to make the best of it the only real problem i have here is the laws you folks have here. If i wanted to talk bad about the place i would start with the ghettos on the east end and the drug problem i got to wittness the first night in bh rideing around with a thug because i was broke down and needed a ride home. by the way the thug was black not one white person offered me a ride not one !!!!! Just wanted to thank the black lady who gave me this ride i would have never guessed i would ever need a ride and end up getting one from a black very nice lady that drove me more then 40 miles to my place.

I will agree with the second one.. but 1 and 3 aren't true most the rednecks you see in Brook are either from Franklin are Lawrence county.

For all the people that are trashing Brookhaven I really hope you stay the hell out and never come back. I also left Brookhaven when i was younger but I couldn't wait to come back. Brookhaven is a very good place to raise a family as we have some very good people that live here.This is a nice place to live and you can have some great friends if you wanted them. i can't see why you people are so down on Brookhaven because most everyone I know love it here. So all I can say if you don't like it here then get out

Unfortunally I have to agree with the people not really liking Brookhaven. Ive been here 60 days and unless you are from there ppl do not want to give you the time of day. The women hate me, being good looking and in a professional job must just piss them off. And OMG at the men... I've never in my life had single men send their kids up to hit on me to see if I'm married... get some damn class. Maybe this town will show some light later because I unfortunally don't have the choice in the matter of staying at the moment. And 'dry' or "wet" county hell, FYI it's called a "damp" county!

Most people hate their hometowns - that's where most of the negativity comes from. As for no whites picking that one dude up - Brookhaven is 70% black according to the last census so it's probably just probability that you didn't get picked up. Other than that, same corruption that's in any other city.

I don't live in the city limits, though.

hey I grew up in brookhaven and yeah there are 2 faced hypocritical baptists and any other religion down there. There are a lot of dope heads and f***** up rednecks but that's every where you go.I went to Enterprise so I couldn't tell you bout any other schools but you just got to make the best of it where ever you are there are good and bad people everywhere. I'll just tell you that if you ain't got money or act like you got money you or your kids won;t be nothin to any of those schools. Those kids parents pay their way through school watch your surroundings and you will see what I mean and here's a small tip to know IN BROOKHAVEN EVERYBODY KNOWS YOUR BUSINESS BEFORE YOU DO SO IF YOU WANNA KEEP THINGS PRIVATE YOU BETTER GET OUT OF THERE.
