There are 2 comments on the www.hickmanonline.org story from Oct 26, 2010, titled Why Hickman County is Disorganized - Part 1. In it, www.hickmanonline.org reports that:

Why is it Hickman County simply cannot seem to climb out of the muck of joblessness, poverty and a Stone Age technology to better compete with its sister counties?

Part 1 of this revealing exclusive study of the hard facts has some surprising revelations and some uncomfortable observations about aloof politicians and different mindsets from one part of the county to another, and how much of our burden is historically imposed.

Hickman county citizens are some of the best folks ive ever known. We do not have an abundance of mean or sorry people. Folks here are generally honest and decent. We have our share of problems which are highlighted by the lack of good jobs. But we also have bright spots like Sole Supports Inc. that provides about 100 good jobs that no only benefit their employess and families but also their customers. We also have folks here that care about their neigbors as was made evident during the spring flooding when neighbor was helping neighbor. The only looting took place by out of county people.

The dark spot in hickman county is mostly in its politics and central religous synicate (the C of C) and corrupt School administration and BOE.
Tax Abatement

Sole Supports is good for the County but up until around 2 years ago it only offered 75 jobs. Has Sole Supports really done us a big favor of providing 100 local jobs in exchange for 20 years of tax abatements (tax free)? No tax abatements should be granted for longer than 5 years. That's plenty of time for a manufacturing business to pay the Industrial Board back on the 'lease to own' agreement and loan granted under the cloak of a non-profit governmental entity.
