Why is there anybody from FAIRMONT saying anything about Clarksburg & Bridgeport? FAIRMONT? FAIRMONT? REALLY! You guys have your own hospital. We have enough welfare in our county! Stay north, please.

Karnac the Magnificent says;

I begin to see the level of person with whom I have chosen to make my life. Point of fact;

Clarksburg is an inanimate construct. It can neither hate, suck nor possess an 'attitude'. The same goes for all other communities.

The people within them, as evidenced quite plainly by the posts herein...are absolutely an equine of an alternate hue.

Woe is me!

Back in the 70s Cburgers had a hate-on for Bporters. I remember basketball and football games vs ND they would try to intimidate the Bport fans by waving the Italian flag at the Bport spectators as if to say that they were prejudice. Now 40 years later those same people who hated Bport now live there. Amazing!

I think it is interesting that you keep using the word "they". Do you know all the peeps in Bridgeport. If you were talking about black people instead of rich people it would be considered hate speech. Just sayin.....

Bridgeport growth came from the FBI center and I79. They are very fortunate being located along the interstate. We are all from Harrison County!!
So what

This is because we took your land from you. After all it was the people we were "intimidating" not the property. Besides we were not trying to intimidate you we were showing pride for our heritage. Funny to know though how intimidated you were.

I will answer the question. It is the age old condition of the Haves and Have nots.
But Bridgeport gets 65% of the county budget money. There's a reason.
An inordinate amount of Bridgeport residents feel and act like they are special and deserve special treatment.

It's isn't just Clarksburg that Harbors ill feelings for Bridgeport either.

Unfortunately the Bridgeports "Haves" only have a better credit score where everyone else actually make mortgage payments with both principal and interest ; many Bridgeport-onions are only making interest payments.

I know the one's that don't fall into that category will bash that but, I ain't lying.

Everybody I have ever met from Bport has turned out to be a stuck up snob, and even at the middle school games they have the nicest uniforms and most expensive matching head bands and shoes. And if they win a game they make sure they make the biggest deal about it possible, and the reason Burg's side of town doesn't look as "expensive" or "new" especially the schools is because all the buget goes to bridgeport! Why would someone need a fake field, all new uniforms and equiptment every year. They buy things they don't need just to show off their money! They think they're to good to play to the rest of the counties rules and, and they just make all the other cities and towns furious.

I am sorry if I have offended anyone form Bport, I bet it's just the people I have met. The snobs are probibly just a small fraction of the people there. People from Bport probibly complain about people like that from Burg too.

Maybe because half of Clarksburg's population had disappeared sine 1960 while the population of Bridgeport has more than doubled. That is plenty of reason to be jealous.

Clarksburg hates Bridgeport because Bridgeport WAS always better (until their best player, me, moved to the better half of the County in July).

So expect Clarksburg, in the coming years, to SWAMP Bridgeport in just about everything. Clarksburg's coming back and coming back like a freight train. Or a passenger, train. Literally.

It's because Bridgeport is growing with new development and healthy economy. With the glass factories closed Clarksburg is dead with people leaving as fast as they can. Clarksburg is falling down.

I have a good friend in Clarksburg always bragging about picking UP real estate cheap their and finally I had to say it so I did. Why don't you sell all of it and come over to Bridgeport and put a down payment on a lot in Bridgeport if you could find one. That was the last of the bragging. Good guy though.
