I agree with your sentiment on this, but the truth is unless we expand our tax base with businesses and population, the rising costs of running our county will soon bankrupt us with taxes. The local paper has referred to possible tax raises in more than one of their stories they ran this past week. If everything could be froze I would agree with you 100%.
Yes, I have been seeing the tax increase news too - in a way, the fewer people a county has to serve the less taxes are needed. It seems our schools have grown at a rapid pace. Before 1964 we had several high schools in the county and then all were consolidated. At Rocky Creek School from 1-12 there were 500 students and today there are more than that from grade 1-6. The county has certainly grown. We have about 25% of the county on welfare and food stamps because of mainly sorry people. I have never had any trouble getting or keeping a job, I did travel out of State each day but living in a peaceful setting was worth it to me. I certainly don't have all the answers, but some new industry would be one answer.

Because currently I'm serving in the army so it's a little difficult to live in Lucedale and serve (unless you're a nasty girl) and I grew up in Lucedale, spent the first 19 years of my life there. And I plan on living in the Mississippi gulf coast when I'm done with the military, and you mention leaksville. Atleast they are open minded enough to make it legal to purchase alcohol in their county. I would love to see Lucedale with the means to entertain the citizens without them having to go elsewhere and put their money into the economy of another town or city. Atleast I have my mind on the future instead of just accepting that the town will never change. I would like to think it will change eventually but I'm worried that by the time it does it will already be too late for the town because the majority of people who have the intellect to make those kind of changes will have moved on to bigger and better endeavors
I still say there are many many well off people in this county that would be willing to invest in entertainment if we had the population to support it. Unless people start moving out of Lucedale and quit moving into Lucedale it will not dry up and die. Maybe you have not been here lately but the traffic is very heavy all day long - Walmart is always packed, doctors offices, drug stores and every where else you go are very busy. I would be happy to drive to Mobile to buy a pair of shoes - change is not always better. Many have moved here from the Coast because they don't like the change - I hope you find a town you will enjoy to live in.

If a child does not graduate from school, it is the parents fault. Adults must set the standards - graduation and college was not an option at our house - it was expected.

I think the school system should be increased to include an Associates Degree, at least. The world is changing fast and we are going to have to keep up or get out of the way. Military should go back to a draft and teach young people some discipline because most parents sure aren't. The older times had some good points and should be recognized and used, granted times have changed, but common sense never gets outdated.

We have the local Jr. College that could work hand in hand with the high school. I would say the two largest problems in our country today are, "the loss of the American family and a lack of common sense" - I have not had a perfect marriage but I did have children and it was "common sense" to me to make a good life for those children and that takes two parents. There are no perfect marriages or perfect families, but kids turn out better in general from a stable home. I think the military is a good idea too. Morals and good judgement never go out of style.

Depends on your definition of perfect. There will be arguments and disagreements, yes, but that doesn't mean it isn't perfect anyway.
