i have lived in haines most my life and if it was thirty years i would say yes! but since then it has changed alot! people are not the same caring helpful people , the town is ran by drug daelers and users, there is nothing for the childern to do if they are not jocks or in the intelectual crowd.... the town walks in a poverty mentality, the police are just as corrupt as the town people , the churches all are clicks and un-unified the grocery prices are hi and the mercahnats take advantage of that ! hanes is a nice place to drive thru but to live there i say keep on driving , and dont look back!
