money is one of the main reasons my husband & i moved! there's nothing much left of hoopeston. i remember when i was a kid, hoopeston was a wonderful place to live but now that i am in my 30's & i've seen all the changes that have been made, not many for the good, it's depressing!

I lived in Rossville for about 12 years on and off ( had a place in Florida)- I agree there are few good jobs. At least my old home has been fixed up by some retirees who bought it 19 years ago. I retired myself( from Indianapolis) and moved to SW Florida this year- 13% unemployment here, but the house was really cheap and I have a pension, so I can't complain much. 9 months ago you could buy almost new homes, hundreds of them, for $50K-condos were $20-40k, they were sold to mostly cash buyers. You have to go up to $150k to find a decent house here today. I lived in Hoopeston, too in the 70's- it was a good place for work- people used to drive through town, find a job and a place to live in a couple days time. Main street was busy with shoppers on the weekend. It's all faded history thanks to the Chinese and Mexican imports.

No, it's faded into history due to everyone here being such cheapskates that they'd rather drive 30 miles to walmart to save 50 cents on a can of beans instead of buying them at iga!
