How about instead of blaming the doctors you start blaming all the government housing in carrollton. Maybe if these low lifes had to work to pay their rent, they wouldn't have time to doctor shop until they got lucky.

I'll blame the doctors, government, bad parenting, inadequate education, poor decision making, and even YOU if you wish.

I find it interesting no one commented on this. Probably because they are all sitting in their free homes mad that someone called them out!
Maybe no one responded because it is kind of a silly blame shift. Although I believe the welfare system needs serious revamping, including public housing, one would blame the state or city or whatever organization assists.... not government housing per se.

md it is good to see the Witches spells are working! I have seen you speak more truth in this topic and am very proud to see that you are not attacking one individual, but keeping it real. You were not hated for your truth, you were hated for your ignorance of attacking individuals. Not showing any kind of mercy to others. carry on!

I have a friend thinking about having a dress shop/clothing store. Cheap prices for quality clothes. She doesn't plan on selling many of any one item and no duplicates of any dress, that way everyone isn't walking around in the same clothes. Also the buisness on main st needs the board walk, there really is nothing else drawing a crowd down there. We have enough restaurants and bars although a nice sitdown seafood place down there would be a welcome addition that we don't have. I dream of the day that downt town is milling with people enjoying our river again and not just being a bunch of drunks walking from one bar to the other. We have good stores down there but the empty ones need filled with things we want. A coffe shop is one, but we had a great one on the hill that didn't last long.

I think the result of ebay, Walmart, Kroger, McDonald's, Lowes, Oxmoor Mall, you name it... is evident in the "Downtown" area of Carrollton and every other town. I think it's referred to as a paradigm shift kinda like "wind up" watches became largely defunct (I know: Rolex still makes them). Small/medium size cities and even urban area "business districts" have been replaced by the Walmartization of America. That and the fact that the 125,000,000 iphones sold in America last year were produced outside the US represent irrerversible demographic trends. IMO

A Micro-brew type specialty would not just cater to the affluent side of Carrollton but it would eliminate the drunks from the afficianados. You don't have to charge an arm and a leg for the beer and I think most people would be comfortable paying $4.50 or $5.00 a beer for a good unique beer. I have always thought that a Pub or Micro-Brew type bar would be great in town. I am glad everyone else seems to like the idea to. Trust me if I had the cash I would start one.

Books stores can't prosper because the only thing people in carrollton will read for the most part is twighlight. When was the last time you overheard a great debate over philosophers discussion in the check out line at wal-mart.
Coffee shops would be great but you really would have to go all out and initially cater to a middle age group that will support it. PLus the other thing is that any potential business owner is either going to have to be well liked or very well unknown. Carrolltons Rumor mill can destroy anything.
Stereotyping a whole community is immature.

I'm 30, read around 2 books a week (Anything from history, philosophy to books by Cristopher Hitchens and Richard Dawkins)

While I do not disagree with you on some of your points, the generalizing, emotion driven, factless arguements lead me to think that you may be an angry teenager.

To the poster of the thread:

A clothing store, tattoo parlor, second hand shop will all fail. It's been tried many times over the past few years. All of them have failed.

Some of the suggestions like a coffee place and book store I would love! But, I don't know if it would generate enough revenue to be worth the investment.

I have thought the same. I would be a regular if the place was 1.) clean. 2.) Unlike the other bars in town 3.) Not a sports bar with TV's in your face so loud you can not have a discussion, 4.) Had good beer. Not piss in a can (aka budlight, miller)

You could always get in touch with Jon Abdoo at Holiday Inn Express...He has some property for sale that you could use to open a nice new business right off of the interstate. He also has the old Ecolodge property for sale. Or you can talk to him about purchasing the property right beside the Holiday Inn. Best of luck to you no matter what you do. There will always be negative people so just ignore them.

I think a recycled furniture store would go over well in downtown Carrollton. Rustic chic, shabby chic, distressed furniture, furniture with soul...if you know of someone with some talent looking to startup in the downtown area, I have a location down on Main Street would be perfect.

Ya know, sometimes I wonder about people... I'd think twice (maby three times) about becoming a tobacco farmer; no future in it; up in smoke. I think McNeal's is the only real business in the downtown area; good luck to McNeal's!(Speedway is not in the downtown area per se in my opinion!)

There is already a used (distressed) furniture store down town on main st. That sell's a little bit of everything. So drive by and see what shops are on main st you might be surprised.

Well, with the bed bug troubles, I can't see any used furniture place doing well, I use to love shopping for old rustics, but I would not dare purchase any at this time, prolly never again! I suppose I will just have to go modern if I ever redocerate.

YMCA's are a private company. City governments don't operate small businesses. The RV park was a good idea. They should have also gone through the plan to build the marina next to it. The grant money used for the Park System, was specfic, and could only be used for certan projects. If you had just half of the brains the good lord gave you, you would know that.

Feel free to come back at me with another stupid argument. I would love nothing more than to educate you some more.

sandy you think you know everything!!!! the vevay ymca gets funds from the county there,so there is some education for you. yes build a marina for the upper crust of carrollton to use,hell build an rv park next to the waste from the water plant,a junk yard and the old sewer plant,nice place just the place sandy would camp out at,oh by the way that junk yard was grandfathered in years ago,so mr baker will stay there until the city makes him a rich man. the grant money was for the city park,the state park system has a budget for the state owned parks.now sandy you got schooled on the facts jerk oh i meant jack
