Shows your low mentality, like most of the posters from the area, you don't know how to think out of the box. I'm retired, and I moved back to the area, because of it's lower cost of living and I still have family and property in the area.
Sure ya did

I recall reading in the local newspaper the appraisel came in at about $60,000. That's what one of the bloggers was referencing when he wrote the board started the bid at almost twice the value of the appraisal.
This is a HUD-errific opportunity for some connected developer. Sink some government bucks into the place and then load 'er up with the urban poor ... just what Lansford needs. But it would bolster the number one occupation in Carbon County - Welfare.
For the problems that can be seen looming, I hope someone blows it up.
Taxper, you hit the nail on the head with teh number one occupation-welfare! This will be a haven for more people to live off the government

doesn't everyone move here due to the low cost of living?
I can't believe there's complaints. I can't imagine there's too many places around that have a lower cost of living than here.
Half these taxpers would REALLY be crying the blues if htey lived in Plains.

I still think they should make this a giant Mental Health/ Rehab for all of the loonies in town. It's not big enough but ya gotta start somewhere. I've heard opinions over the morality and work ethics being at a low because of people moving into this hole. I've been there for 5 yrs, and on my block either the men are in the big house or don't work. They were raised in this town. There's a mess of breeders but nobody seems to be holding jobs. There's a high percentage of child molesters when considering the census. They didn't move there! They were raised there. Lansford needs a Mental Health facility.
