Why would any business.yes, even a state school want to be in Crockett, Texas? Nothing there.
I bet when the "top dogs" come to Crockett just to visit the place they say, "where are we going to stay tonight"? "Where do you want to eat?"
Nothing there. Obvious as to why they shut it down..plus...families of the kids that were housed there...most live in large cities.Why come to Crockett, Texas? Anyway why would one to be proud of having a reform school in their town.? Same ones.. I guess that are proud that the nicest building in town is a jail.
Crockett has no one but Crockett to blame.
I got a good idea.."lets put astro turf on our football field. It will be bring tourist dollars.Maybe the Cowboys will play here. No..can't be..no place to stay or eat. Sorry Crockett...you brought this on yourself.
Yep

I have to agree with much of what you say. As a business owner in Houston County I have found it to be the pits, but, if the same people keep getting ahead with the system in place...why change it?

I live for the day the locals are bulldozed over....it ain't far away.

Just wondering. If Crockett thrives wouldn't that be good for your business? I'm no fan of Crockett, Texas because I've found them to be somewhat "clickish" when interacting with others, but maybe I'm too sensitive.

Even little Centerville has more to offer than Crockett..Grapeland should be the county seat.More there than in Crockett.

YES I also agree with everything they said about Crockett. Crockett is a Pathetic, cancerous town, a road that leads to NO WHERE! Pun intended. I've lived here for most of my life and the people here are very clique organized. The cliques are such a mass force that in order to get a good job you have know somebody in one of the major cliques. I am educated and I am a nurse, no criminal background and I've never been fired from any job I've ever had. I moved back to Crockett about 4 year's ago and I have not be able to find a job in my field yet the local newspaper keep printing advertisement for nursing jobs all over this town. The people in Crockett are like crabs in a bucket they want to keep everybody especially the minoroty of individual who are trying to be good productive citizens in this town who want to do something with their lives from getting out and doing better for themselves. The local Department of Human Services is also clique oriented. They help who they want to help with benefits. I know of people right now getting food stamps and other government benefits that shouldn't be. So let's recap …They hire all their friends, they help their friends bilk the federal government out of thousands monthly, They try to destroy any individual who is trying to be a good citizen, they spent unnecessary school tax dollars to put astro turf on a football field. Sadly this is just the tip of the ice burg.
