I would suggest maybe moving to dyersburg about 20 miles away and commuting here honestly. This town has nothing in it for entertainment and is nothing but drama. I'd especially heed my words if you have children in school, the high school here is a joke.

C'ville is the last place to move to. There are no services here, no entertainment, small Wal-Mart, no Vet or Humane Shelter, most people go to Dyersburg or elsewhere to shop and for other services.

Thank you for the information.I don't live anywhere close to there so I cant just jump in my car and check it out. I don't have to worry about the school system because my child is out of school so that's a blessing but I would like to be where there is a little bit to do.Again thank you all for the information.I was also looking at Hayti? Is it about the same?

Hayti is basically Caruthersville with a different name. More places to eat in Hayti but it's only about 5 minutes from Caruthersville. I would probably do Dyersburg or Kennett and drive the 20 minutes to work.

Its a state job so any surrounding town halfway close would work. I prefer to live in a town where there are some restaurants to choose from and people that are at least somewhat friendly. I know that's hard to come by anymore but I'm optimistic.

Kennett is a good place and they have a supercenter and from my understanding the schools are pretty good. Plenty to choose from regarding restaurants. If you are wanting to buy a house their property taxes are not as high as caruthersville. Good luck to you!

I find it interesting that people on this topic are using Wal-mart as a factor in how attractive a town is for residence.

In small towns the existence of a "Supercenter" usually indicates that local business is either gone or on its way out. There is a reason Bentonville tries to place its largest stores in the smaller towns.

It is easier to run all the competing businesses out and thus have a monopoly.

Caruthersville, Hayti, and the other small towns in the area have a lot to offer.

My suggestion to the folks downgrading these towns would be if you find them so repulsive, move.

New-in13, Caruthersville, Hayti, and the other small towns around this area are absolutely lovely. Friendly neighbors, nice true local businesses with friendly owners, etc.

I have lived in quite a few places in this country and elsewhere, but keep coming back here. There's not a place I've been that I would rather call home more.

What businesses are there in this town that would even have to compete with Walmart? If they don't go to Walmart here they will go out of town. The only stores around are boutiques and most of the people in caruthersville wouldn't shop at them or could afford them. A supercenter also would create more job opportunities.

I was not downing Caruthersville or Hayti although it's not exactly the charming place you make it out to be. I was just making suggestions on different places for them. I didn't say anything that wasn't true. There are not many places to eat around here and not many places to shop other than the local boutiques which most of the time are never open.

A supercenter makes no job opportunities for a small community. It costs the state and county money, because the largest portion of its employees are not allowed to work enough hours to live on. Wal-Mart is the largest single drain on the welfare and foodstamp pockets. Most of its employees qualify for social assistance programs.

The largest drain in welfare and food stamps is the lazy bums who refuse to get a job and the government keeps giving them money. I know several people who work at Walmart and make a good living.
In my opinion

For what it's worth, I'd go with Dyersburg over Kennett; there's far more in Dyersburg.

You need to put that crack pipe down, pal. Don't pay any attention to this clown, to paint that rosy of a picture of C'ville, he's on something for sure.
