What a laugh! What are you going to do? Paint the flood wall, oh I know, get the pill heads off the street at four in the morning! Better yet let's make a fishing pond out of it.

Mannington is located to far from an interstate.Most of your larger companies are located near an interstate.This is because mostly everything is transported by tractor/trailor. About 15 or 20 years ago there were talk about running an interstate through Mannington. It would have followed close to the ridge tops. But there were a lot of people and business men that were against it. Everyone was afraid of more crime, traffic and etc. So as long as we take this approach Mannington will be the same old town.

It's an unfriendly town, 25 mph through the whole thing, and a cop behind every bush. Most people try to avoid it.

Solving the pillhead problem is the first step. Nothing good will come of this area until all the white trash gets off of pills.

Since you obviously lack reading skills and was unable to discern that the subject is about Matewan, you may want to look in the mirror while posting about white trash and pill heads. Or is your excuse that you are plain ignorant?

You couldn't turn Mannington around with a 1 billion dollar stimulus package. Too far from interstate, people who are gross and under educated and one dump home after another. Burn it down and move!

Are you really so dumb that you think things can't change because you're too far from an interstate? There are crappy towns all along the interstates. Mannington would become a truck stop if there were an interstate. Stop pretending like you're an economist.

Ted, Ted, Ted, are you that stupid naturally or are you on stupid medication? The thread is about Matewan, not Mannington. Now, if you put your hands on your shoulders and push hard your head should pop right out of your ass.
