Before I moved here, I read up on the history of Gouverneur and fell in love! I come from a bigger city and was excited to live in a town where I could walk to get the hardware store, or the pharmacy, or McDonalds...

But I see so much hatred on this website... is this a commonality within the community, or just a few select with not much else going on?

I'm honestly concerned with meeting people here, because how will I know I can trust them with all of this trash. Whether it is true or not, that is beside the point. The point is, why publicize your communities issues? The media has already done a wonderful job everywhere... can we at least keep it to a minimum? If you have an issue, talk to that person. If you don't want to, gossip with friends. I mean, if you have a problem, but don't come up with a solution, why promote the issue?

Personally, I don't care who is a slut... and I am quite sure that most people don't.

I'm proud to say I've moved here because of the history and heritage... but I'm not so sure about the people now.

I wouldn't take too much of what you read on here to heart...most of these people are "recipients"..if you know what I mean. They have nothing better to do ..like work. They don't represent Gouverneur at all. Sorry that this is your first impression. There are plenty of nice people who have better things to do with their time all over...obviously get away from this site and these kind of people. The social at the St. James School May 13th - 15th is fun if you have children. Buy the local paper called the Tribune Press at any store just about in town and that will keep you informed on what is happening!! Good Luck! Hope you enjoy our town!

I grew up in Gouverneur and moved away....I moved away due to the economy and inconvenience of the area (having to drive 30+ miles for anything)and also because I feel that the general attitudes of the people in the town (all socio-ecomonic classes) are negative and unfriendly.

well if you where reading everthing on this site you might see I am a scumbag and dont deserve my kids, besides all that if you believe anything you see here, "St. James" my kids go there,,, it is a good school, but seems you are reading anything you read here you might not want youre kids going to school with mine....and my Husband works there tooo...maybe half the people in gouverneur are on welfare or get foods stamps, but most of the world does, its not because everyone is not working its because most all of gouverneur jobs only pay min wage, and by time you you work there so long min wage goes up and you are still making the same amount as min wage by time you get youre raise...what you see here is everywhere, I just found out 5 days ago my name was on here, as for any person I am going top defend my self, I have lived here all my life and most people dont know me as abar,,,its Pankey, most people like me and say I am a great mother, me and my husband have seven kids total, ya they have a few differnt dads, but trust me Randy is there true dad....Gouverneur is a dramma town, what else do we have to do...have sex, have babies, and start stuff that isnt even true...most people talk about other people, turn you in to social serves, or steel from you, yes this is most of the population of gouvernuer, and I don't care if people moving to town knows, besides they will find out eventualy..the other half is stuck up and look down on the other half,, if youre last name isnt one of the top people in gouverneur, you are nobody, we have discimanating police, public schools, and ppl...believe all this, you will find out shortly..it never stops around here,,drive down by the bank late at night or accrossed town by save alot, you will see cops talking to drug dealers, or riding around with them, or even talking on a cell phone, you always see the same names in the paper, and when you see someone new, you will see it agian..gouvernuer is the same as it always has been, you are either high or low, where you will be, fuck lately I only talk to family and my6 name still gets on a web site...

exacly what I am saying no one that lives in gouverneur can refer to someone else with out giving a group of them, or person a name..do I need to say any more..I meen no one.. any one you talk to will call at least one other person something...

what i am trying to say is no matter how nice you are you will have at least one person in this town that will not be youre freind..that will try to put you and youre family in the dirt...for the record I am not a "recipient"

Small towns have their advantages, but they also have their disadvantages too. Gouverneur doesn't have a lot to offer the majority...there's nothing here for kids, crap for retail, and if you're here long enough...gossip gossip gossip. The town hasn't changed since I was a kid 30+ years ago. People have to have someone to talk about, and apparently (I just recently found out) this is one of their slandering sites. Somehow I really don't think it's what the makers of the site ment for it..I could be wrong but who the biggest slut is isn't really newsworthy!!
