We are new to the area, and I am surprised no one has bothered on either side of us to come and welcome us to the area. I was so excited about moving here. I have visited different churches, and no one has visited us or called.

Don't get discouraged, I've been here 5 yrs now. The town pretty clanish, but if you'll take the first steps(maybe a few more steps, then a couple more)they'll start to open up. But what ever you do, don't say anything to anyone that you don't want the whole town to know. GOOD LUCK!

Good advice from hopeful. There are some good people are, just takes a while for them to open up. I am disappointed people from the churches havent visited you, but find one you like and start going and they will open up also. It does take them a while but it will happen. Also this is a town that likes to gossip so not saying stuff you dont want spread is also a good idea.

I have been here 3 years and we are moving. The town is sticks to their own groups and it is hard to get in them. Churches welcomed us and I have to say those were the only welcome wagon we got. If you bought a house u wont sell since this town is trashy and low in value. That's why we cant sell and you see houses for sell for years. Good luck and hope you find hope here and like it.
Fyi: the jail is corrupted and violates rights and fabricates a lot of their stuff. Don't get caught in the towns web of lies and corruption.

Welcome to Cooper Texas. They will only talk with you if you born and never left this nice city. Then if they do talk they will stick you in the backend and smile. All I can say is RUN away from here.

How does this town expect any change when they have their own groups and won't allow "new" people to be accepted, they were brought here for a reason...why can't you just accept them. You Clanish People really break the spirit of these new settlers!

I'm sorry that you have had a bad experience moving here. I don't understand why the people in this town think they are better than any new people coming here. This town needs some new people. People to breath new life into the dying businesses, people to vote new officers into a clicky town and maybe some of the parents around here can learn from the new people how to raise a respectful family.

I can tell you I have lived here 65 years, and if I could aford to move I would, Delta County used to be a good place to live, friendly people and most got along with everyone, then a few new ones moved here from no one knows and decided they wanted to run things, so they proceded to tell lies and gossip about people, now we have some of the most corrupt people in the world living her, they have even corrupted some of our elected officals, they have managed to turn neighbor against neighbor, family against family, and friend against friend and they go around telling everyone they are christians and go to church every sunday. Some of them think it is alright for them to break the law, but others have to do right. So if you can get out of Cooper and Delta County you better git. WE have one that gets on here and tries to do his best to take up for the crooked ones, he is stuck so far as you can guess it is not funny any more.

You know, I actually agree with you. Delta County did used to be a good place to live. Then outsiders began moving in knowing how to do everything better. You can see what that caused. I'm not leaving tho. I retired here and mind my own business except to speak out when I think it needs to be done.
