You're fullofshit. People buy online to avoid taxes, dumbass. Your dumbass argument comes from the miserable household you grew up in. El Dorado is a much better place to be rid of ignorant assclowns like you.
Miserable household? That's quite judgemental considering you don't even know me. I also stated clearly that I liked it here until I realized there was so much better out there. My parents and brothers and sister are the best family I can ask for. We grew up in a wonderful household, and with a comfortable living and a father involved in local politics. It's amazing how anytime someone points out what this town really is, they automatically get the " you're miserable" crap from the local crazy. And considering what I've read from the other posts, your that lunatic stalker that makes a new post about the Eppinettes about once a week. If I were you I would be calling anyone else miserable, because only miserable people are as mean spirited as to become so obsessed with hating one family.

My life is great. My childhood here in ElDo was great. I'm sorry yours isn't, no matter what you say. You can claim your on top of the world but nobody as hateful and obsessed as you could ever be happy.

Especially if they are actually located in that state. And this won't take place until November 2014 (slowass gov policies to increase the wealth of their lobbyist friends). So, he lack of sales tax charges and fuel costs is the reason why people buy online.
sorry sweetie, but people in ElDo buy online because they have no other choice except to drive almost two hours to get what they need. Like one poster who loves it here said his or herself, its unrealistic to say that this town has anything anyone could want. No small town on earth has that. Even in my awesome ass small Texas college town we have to drive 30 min to get a lot of things, but at least it isn't almost two hours. Hate to burst your tiny minded bubble, but you are in some serious denial about what this town really is.

El Do has been in decline for years, city hall doesn't get it and has been spending money like they are still on top. It's time the city spends money on the water system and on condemning more run down houses. Crime is out of control in the city, can you blame the people who are leaving.
Over 12% of the pop didn't leave in the past decade for no reason, that's for sure. If El Dorado is just so wonderful and perfect I wonder why they left at all? Must be an enigma.

Found this post in the Norphlet School Thread. Thanks to "figures" for putting it up. I think it pretty much sums up a few things about this town and that crazy loon that stalks every thread with his unrealistic pro-ElDo promotion. It's great to have town pride, but that guy seriously in denial. Here's the post:

"I'm not a poor, disillusioned El Dorado citizen but I agree that our festivals will in no way be creating businesses. This festival town stuff is something a few pocketed town officials (some which I actually know on a personal basis) have been promoting for years before it even started. Some of them really have high hopes but the others are decidedly anti business and just want to make their town less boring for themselves and their buddies. They're academics who need things to stimulate their minds and get sick of constantly traveling to get it, even though they can afford the travels. Guys like the one defending their backwards business sense are usually cronies and low level kiss asses that pride themselves in getting to rub elbows with the town elite, not knowing at all how much those men and women look down on and laugh at pathetic hangars-on like him and his kind. They tow the line and spout the tag lines without question ( a few days long festivals on the square will create businesses everywhere, ya'll!) and get little in return but a pat on the head and, in their small minds, a few bragging rights about being "in the know". Now that I think about it they really are little fools, because those of us who are truly informed and connected have the burden of knowing what really goes on behind closed doors, and it isn't all pretty, or well intended. "

Complaining about a real issue is better than being an ignorant cronie who goes along with whatever the officials say. Its okay to question the way things are going. Its a good thing to question authority and hold them to a standard of truth and openness.

No problem has ever been solved by ignoring it. The problem has to be brought to light in order for positive change to be made.

Its amazing the number of people that swallow whatever government tagline is passed out. Real thinkers are the ones that seek truth.

But why am I even bothering? After all, you are the Topix lunatic. We all know you talk to yourself all the time. You post something then agree with yourself on a regular basis. My gosh, are you disturbed. There is no hope for bitter, miserable people like you.

Have fun copying my post!

Murphy Foundation providing free tuition and board is not an "issue," its a godsend. The coat of living in this area is as cheap as you can find across the nation. Not the cheapest, but toward that mark. Property taxes is about half of what Texas charges, not to mention additional taxes they use to make up no state income taxes. Gas, homes, goods, etc. all rank on the lowest end of the cost of living scale. Our real problem is that we also rank toward the lower end of compensation, with a local avg of around $30,000 a year. Wonder why so many out if state people own local property. Two reasons: inheritance and more cash flow, in which they earn more and have higher expenses, but the cash left over is used for real estate investments in affordable properties (whether for long term gains or tax write offs. An increase in local compensation, or more business owners, would help resolve the real problem if this community. And an entertainment district would encourage mire vendors and small businesses (whether food services, retail, etc.) to open. It looks like a plan has been put in motion. As citizens, we have two options: be part if the solution or continue to be a speed bump through the process. Nothing wrong with checks and balances, but to complain about a 90%+ college attendance rate from our EHS graduating seniors? With this only being possible through the El Dorado Promise? That's ridiculous.

so true there are no jobs and those we have are slowly dying out along with every small business. There is nothing for young folks to do, but drink and do drugs. Bowl, skate, or the movies and that cost $30. And inside town is turning into gettos. I was born here and I was never scared to go to Wal-Mart at 10pm at night. Now I get out of town before dark.

No, there actually are jobs and only one local large employer possibly cutting back. Hiring would be more rapid everywhere if we didn't have this massive healthcare debacle looming over us. There is plenty for young people to do, but they CHOOSE to drink and do drugs. Bowling, skating, and the movies are so 1980s, which us why you generally see the 40+ demographics there. No clue to where you refer to as "inside town," but this does not include Detroit St or Rock Island. Wal-Mart is safe to go at night, which I personally go all the time. It sounds like you are consumed in your own fear. Name one criminal incident of notoriety that has happened at Wal-Mart, so somebody will actually believe your nonsense.

Agree about the Healthcare "debacle" as you called it. It is one of the reasons the entire nations will be seeing a rise in unemployment. SO unfortunate. Businesses will do what they need to in order to survive.

I do understand people not always feeling safe here but thats the case with most Arkansas towns, now isn't it people? There are very few areas of our state where people would probably feel comfortable. Towns with certain demographics I'm sure.

Towns with lack of interstate access face an uphill battle of growth. Many businesses won't locate here because a lack of distribution ease, which deters a motivated workforce to consider a place like El Dorado. Certain demographics aren't moving here; the children of certain demographics remain while other demographics look elsewhere for gainful employment. The real problem of ALL groups is that very few are willing to be entrepreneurs. People expect a 6 figure job, with full benefits, that they only have to work 9-5. If that exists anywhere, it is ONLY because the cost of living is more in those areas. The cost of living is dirt cheap here, so thriving "mom & pop" businesses would do well, if society would stop educating all demographics of our future that someone will be there to provide something for you, whether a large private company or the government. This especially includes college graduates with debt looming over them. Be a grown up and find a way to pay what you owe. The benefit of scholarships are there for a reason.

There are several areas on the South side of town that offer quick access to the Interstate. There's also Magnolia Highway and Calion Highway. We actually have pretty good highway access. It would be easy to build complexes in those areas and have large trucks pull out onto the highway. What you're saying isn't practical, its just a wild haired excuse.

As for the population. I don't think we are declining anymore. I don't think we are necessarily growing either, but that might take some time. Unfortunately, people aren't going to move here for retail stores and restaurants, something we have an abundance of for a town this size. We are lucky in that area. People won't be moving here for the Promise either, like I think ALL of us expected. I know I expected people to flock here for the El Dorado Promise. Free college tuition? Awesome! But it didn't make a difference. That was a huge disappointment. Still great, but a disappointment that it didn't bring in more people.

If we get more business and industry back into the town we will slowly but surely get back some of the lost population. On the bright side, we aren't declining anymore. Hopefully.

Surely there is a way to get those numbers? I think they must be available somewhere, probably at the courthouse. Not an estimate but real numbers. We shouldn't have to wait until 2020 to know. I'm sure our city planners and officials make certain decisions with that knowledge available. I would really like to find out. There is no reason that shouldn't be available to the public.

What interstate, dumbass? There's not an interstate within 75 miles of here! Do you even know what an interstate is???

Highway 7, 167, 82, and 15 are HIGHWAYS.

Now, I feel bad for calling you a dumbass. The rest of your post is pretty accurate, as our population increase can be found at our local Chamber of Commerce, through the increase of available workforce and new hires. As long as we're hiring more than people are dying, we should be in good shape.
