Think I know who you are. I knew Shirley and all her family. That was the good ole days when we were all young and for the most part happy and having a lot of fun.

Feels good stereotyping, doesn't it? We could easily label you as a city shit, or whatever we please, does that mean you ACTUALLY fall into those categories? Labels are only effective for products.. not humanity, genius. It takes a act of God to get a job around these parts anymore, it seems. And yes, there's many that milk the system, there's nothing the innocent and working folk of this region can actually do about it with the corruption and lack of care from law enforcement here. Dope is bad here, illegal and legal used illegally..does this not sound like the rest of the world minus the population differences? The statement damned if you do, damned if you don't comes into play here. If there's ANY given type that should stop breeding, it would be labels and shit starters..but like everything else in life, it's a choice, one that makes this planet one big constricted shithole. You cannot do anything anymore without a label thrown on you, you make me sick to say the bitter least.

It is getting worse everyday. I bet someone in this county gets something stole everyday. Its sad to watch kids grow up here. All we can do is Pray they get a good education and stay away from drugs. I think everybody here knows at least one family member it has destroyed. Even when they get help and quit the stuff they have to live with addiction the rest of their life.

It is, but most of us wouldn't trade this place for a key to the universe though. In my opinion, the generalized freedom and peace of mind of living in the sticks is far better than living in a condensed city, barely knowing a soul around you. The job opportunity is more abundant, ofcourse, and it might work for you (and I hope it does) but it's not for me, nor the majority of us here. Prescription drug-related problems, theft, wreckless drivers, system-milkers and Town of Mayberry law enforcement are the only things this county suffers from..but look at the murder, rape, grand theft, grand larcency, etc. statistics in the cities. These things are rare in this part of the woods. Alot of people don't desire to live here, though they have no choice. Alot more of us, however, choose to live here. We could live in the cities, but what would be the point if we're not happy with the surroundings and lifestyle? All I'm saying is life's too short, everyone has their own style and way of life. Imagine if everyone was alike in any given area of life, how dull would that be? How would you feel if someone trash-talked about the place where your heart is set at? I don't ask for an apology, just acknowledgment that life is a beautiful, worthwhile, mess regardless where anyone lives.

I live in a holler by choice. I love living among all these trees, and the beautiful birds singing, and deer eating off my apple trees.Sometimes I see wild turkeys flying from one side of the mountain to the other. I have a nice little place , and I know all my neighbors. nobody bothers me. Just quite, serene, and beautiful. The only problem I am having at this time is I have to cut my time ouside short sometimes because a coyote gets too close.

It is people like "Robert of Charolotte NC"...that gives the human race a bad name. First of all, this forum was intended for those who knew the Cassell family, and whose life may have been touched by some of them. It sickens me to see someone with a lack of intelligence post something so idiotic. For whatever reason this "goofball" left Buchanan County. Thank GOD you did. It is a better place without someone of your mentality.

I think andy and barney working together could do better than these clowns we got. They did catch a cow thief one time.
