Bad utilities, no water, no sewer, no internet to speak of, overpriced telephone and tv service, etc.

I can tell you that most people who leave here, they do come back. Being in a strange area, where you don't know anyone is scary. All your friends are here, your family is here. It is easy to up and move, but all in all, most always come back. This is the life that we are use to, it's the life we love. Yes, there is nothing to do, but we are use to it. What do you want to do, make it happen here. All places have the same problem, just different people. I left once, but only for a short time, by the time I did get back, I could have kissed the ground. I feel safer here than I do anywhere. It's a different world out there . What would we want in Knott County that would make it a better place? Restaurants would be great. How many people use the bowling alley at the S. Plex? It's is a little out of the way for Hindman, but glad it's there for those that don't mind the roadtrip. I like convenience.
so fine

I left for 10years....I can tell you, I am so glad to be home! There is nothing like family and friends and it is very comforting to back with them all. The grass isn't always greener on the other side :)

In spite of everything that's wrong with this place (we have socio-economic problems here that other areas can't even concieve of), it's still home and I like it here. I moved away for several years as well, but ended up realizing that home is home, and home can't be anywhere else.

I and a friend drove to the Grand Canyon about ten years ago. In that trip, you go through several different states. Texas, Arkansas, Tennessee, New Mexico, seen some sad places and everywhere that we stopped people were complaining about their pay and not being able to afford things. Things are the same in all states. And the homes that people in New Mexico lived in was sad. Some only had mud houses on rock piles.Not all of them lived that way, but I was so thankful to see the mounains and the beautiful state that we live in, after that trip of seven days. We all should be thankful because life isn't all good anywhere. Life is what you make of it. It isn't money or material things. Being truly happy with what you have, life, family and friends, true friends.

Oh yeah it's so beeeutiful and majestic here. You can't get your breath for the coal dust, you can't keep windshields in your cars for the coal trucks,
drug dealers on every corner and law enforcement on the take, 90% of the population are on welfare and will steal you blind, no sewer, nasty water, no Walmarts or Kmarts ETC., just sit and look out the window where the mountains used to be and wait for the storms to blow you off because of it. No family restaurants no playgrounds for our children, no jail for our hoodlums. WHY ITS A CHIP CHIP CHERRY PLACE TO LIVE. Oh yeah life expectancy in Knott county is only 62. This statistic was taken for the Ky. Dept. Of Health.

traveler, we got people living in worse conditions on Pippa Passes. I travel to. Almost every single town and city between here and Miami has help wanted posters. Maybe they would have a house if they would work. There was help wanted posters all over Pigeon Forge last week.

Wait until you politician lubbers have to start making $660,000.00 per month payment on the sportsplex now that coal severance tax is gone. Who do you goofs think are going to be paying on that for the next 22 years? Theres 17000 people in Knott county. Less than 1200 work. You workers and the land owners will buy it. Bend over and get ready for the big one. Your property taxes have already started to rise. Just for fun multiply 22 years X $660,000.00. Then divide it by 17000 residents. See how much per person will have to pay technically. The funds were illegal that built the sportplex anyway. SOMEBODY HAS TO PAY FOR IT, AND ITS YOU. I'm moving to Perry county in Jan. Bad part of it is you will have to pay for it and still not own it. B. Miller owns it. The land it sits on anyway. Wondering about the kickbacks there.
