Less then 10% yes we need more Hispanics and a few from Jalisco. Good hard working people.

Why are you specifying a racial group, much less an area they come from? Hispanic people are human beings; a white, black, or purple person can do the same job they do.

Trying to sound PC? It's not working for you.

Maybe that was the reason for the flying purple people eater of song. Of course, in all my travelling I haven't seen the first purple person but then I only drank years ago, I didn't pop, shoot or snort.

Why does everyone attack one posting when someone else thinks outside the box? It doesn't matter if there were purple people, it sounds to me like they would not be accepted either. Why all the hate? Are you jealous because they came over to work hard and now you can't be lazy anymore because of the competition. The fact is, we need anyone who is willing to work hard for almost nothing so all of us can enjoy the fruits of their labor. If you don't like it, oh well, this is America. Get over it, all are welcome.

We need JOBS, JOBS, JOBS to hold the graduating students here! Look at all the empty store buildings and factory buildings. WE NEED the ones we voted for to work for us. I hope Mr. Carrico,
(a graduate of Chilhowie) helps this county. Most of the students going off to college never return they need the kind of jobs that will draw them back here. It helps all of Smyth County...when this happens. Shop local this season and support the Smyth County businesses so they can continue to build OUR community. GOD BLESS AMERICA!
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL!
