There are other small towns across the country that have a certain charm, intimacy and coziness. El Dorado isn't one of them. I don't know if its the large % of blacks (and the crime and poverty that comes with them being oppressed under the government thumb) or if its the town officials making poor decisions every day. And please, spare me the crap about El Dorado being just fine. If it was just fine people wouldn't be fleeing this place year after year. Our population is only getting smaller, and more heavily with blacks. Do any of you really think the population decline is happening for no reason? You can't blame the economy either, considering there are jobs here in town for people that want to work. People are leaving El Dorado for work. We have as much of that here as any other town our size. They leave because there are so many things wrong with this place.

What could we do to keep people here? How could we make this place better? Does it have hope?

One thing is cost of living. Real estate here is way too high for a dying town. Gas is also unexplainably high. If you can make the same amount of money elsewhere and not have to overpay for rent or housing, you save money and have a better quality of life. Simple stuff. I wonder if the town officials and businessmen get together and think of ways to screw El Dorado citizens out of more money.

If we all bound together for the good then anything could happen. I don't know why El Dorado is steadily dying. It has so much potential that's not being used. I don't want to see my town die!

Unemployed always disagree. We're always gonna have unemployed folks, and they'll always be disagreeing.

Gas prices at the pump would be a good start
