Mountain View, Arkansas in depicted superficially as a charming and hospitable environment in which to retire and or raise children. Be not deceived by the false pretense of the charm and hospitality. Mountain View, Arkansas in my opinion is ruled by long time locals who possess a great deal of wealth, the "Good Ole Boy" network. The Mayor Jim Cash appears close to being retarded in city council meetings, and how he got elected is beyond me and many others in Stone county.
The crime rate in Mountain View, Arkansas has continued to spiral out of control over the past few years, and the court/legal system here appear to tolerate it with open arms and a pat on the hand of those who commit crimes, such as incest, molestation, drug possession, theft, etc.
There are also scams going on in the home building business, especially involving rustic cabin/land package deals targeting retirees, and those who move here seeking a more tranquil lifesyle. The locals seemingly stick together when an out of towner, referred to as "someone from off" is ripped off. It certainly appears the locals thrive on the money those from "off" spend here, but when it comes to getting justice in the court system, you might as well hold your a**, and kiss it goodbye. When a criminal with a very impressive crime resume who is charged with 2 felonies is arrested, and he phones the newly elected Mayor's wife, in attempt to be bailed out of jail, what might this indicate? When one of the wealthiest men in Mountain View, Arkansas, if not the wealthiest backed and conducted alot of business with the alleged felon who was supposedly ripping people off in rustic cabin/land package deals, what might this indicate? This place is not the kind of place you might think it is. You will find this out after living here a couple to few years. Hopefully, you will take this article, and ponder it awhile prior to making any commitment to moving here. The rustic cabin builder's name who has been charged with 2 felony counts, which in my opinion was not enough charges, name is Andrew L. Wittchow, "Andy." His wife Sherrie Wittchow in my opinion and the opinion of others is as sinsiter of a criminal as her husband.
Rustic cabin/land package deal seekers beware!
For those of you who want to move here and seek out a job........Well, you might to rethink this as well. Jobs are held closely for locals unless you have specialized in some area a local is not educated enough to fill, and even being educated and pursuing a job here is questionable at the very best.

I moved to Mountain View over 20 years ago. Although we are not uptopia, I cannot think of another place I would rather live. Bad things happen everywhere and I think we are blessed that fewer bad things happen here.

The night of the tornado I shared my storm cellar with neighbors. When we heard town had been hit, I and my husband came in to check on our office. Neighbors were out checking on people and clearing the roads of downed trees as we made our way to town. Everywhere you looked people were helping other people. I heard an Entergy employee say that in most communities hit by a disaster the people are waiting for Entergy to come and fix the problem. In Stone County people were out clearing the right of ways so the Entergy employees could restore our power.

I hope that in time you will come to love the people of Stone County the way I do. We all have a black sheep in our family, please do not judge the entire communtity based on the actions of a few.

I can appreciate your perspective after living here for the amount of time you have. And, I have no doubt, you really experience what you have written. However, you have not walked the path we have during and following being ripped off by a con-artist builder, and his scamming wife, who appeared to us as having been covered up to the highest level in this community. Nor did you walk the path of many others who were ripped off by this builder and according to their perspectives and ours alike by his wife, as well. His wife still has not been charged with as much as a loose fingernail. Perhaps, because she is related to some high dollar figure person, or someone in this "good ole boy" network that rules this community. Or, maybe she made some kind of deal with the prosecutor to save her, in my opinion criminal butt. In regards to staying here for 20 years, for us, this is now a impossibility. We are out of here as soon as we can be. There exists too much legal coverup here in this town, too much gossip that does not hold merit, nor truth, too much false pretense of a God-like community, that in my opinion is a crock of superficiality at it's finest and too much of a clickish local attitude when it comes to people who are not from here. I would not doubt if the very wealthy in this community do not line the collection plates with launder money to Jesus for tax write-offs.
This community, in my opinion would kick Jesus out of their Godly churches if he were to come back in human form today, unannounced wearing ragged clothing, a dirty beard, a dark tan, and wearing tattered sandals. I have no room in my life for hypocrites, nor those who take advantage of mine or my family's kindness. And, "Forgive them, for they know not what they do." I have great empathy for those who sincerely make mistakes or have taken wrong actions against me and my family in error, and acknowledge this. However, I have nearly no forgiveness for those who knowingly commit crimes, coverup crimes and stand behind those who commit crimes against humanity, and then strut around like they have done no wrong, and put on the outter appearance that they are untouchable by law. Perhaps, in this community they are if they know the right people, however, in the eyes and heart of the God I have grown to know and understand, these kind of people will stand in judgement at some point in time whether it be here on this earth or following their lousy demise.

All I can say is GOOD BUY, don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out. What gets my goat is that you think since you are a disabled Vet that the whole world owes you everything and that you can not walk around playing GOD for everything to go your way. You want to talk who scamming who. Look at your self buddy. Your deal was done by the book, you want to blame someone, blame the VA office their the one that did most of the closings. People owe money it's no crime, people get divorced everyday, is that a crime? You got divorced, are you saying your a criminal. GOOD BUY, SO LONG, GET THE HELL OUT OF MY TOWN.

Wow, "your town" scumbag! You speak of some Veteran who has served his or her country for a career, and then you ripped them off. You are fortunate you may only be going to prison.
The VA has absolutely nothing to do with anybody's home closing. Remember when you ripped off, C. L.; B.&M.; Mr. O., J.&A., and all of those victims you ripped off in Wisconsin. Have you checked out your own criminal history? Do you not have the ability to see what you have done? Maybe years in a penitentary will assist you if you survive there. I seriously doubt you will. And, if you do not get any prison time, you are going to rip-off the very wrong person one day, and brother, you are going to wish you were in prison if you are not already. Regarding someone playing God. You, little big man wannabe are the one who struts around like he is some untouchable God scamming people by taking money from them, and then denying you have done anything wrong.
You are a unconscienable sociopath, psychopath and or antisocial personality disorder type of predator in my opinion.
"Your Town" Man, you gotta a long tough road to hold ahead of you. Maybe you will get on a cell block and start spouting "Get out of my cell block;" then see what the hell happens to your little butt that you think is so big.
How do you feel about your little criminal record being available to the whole damn world? Hope it makes you proud. You ripped off the wrong people scum bag! You better count your blessings this is all that has happened to you, and you did not end up flowing through a wood chipper. Anyone with a conscience could not carry out this act, as your shredded flesh would kill any living grass or plant.
Have a great life.

Hey,

They are looking out for you in Calico Rock and all of Izard county as well. You might want to respond there too.
And, don't y'all illiterates run off to Purvis, Mississippi, because they will be waiting for you there too. Besides that, y'all would give your close contacts and business buddies a real bad name there like you have done in Mountain View.

My perception, opinion, belief and recommendation.
Move anywhere in Arkansas or the rest of the U.S. before moving to Mountain View, Arkansas.
I believe the criminal activity there is pervasive and rampant throughout many key power positions in the city of Mountain View, Arkansas. Purchase land and cabin elsewhere. Reommend you stay way clear of any person or business dealings that have anything to do with Andrew L. Wittchow, AKA Andy or his uncharming wife Sherrie Wittchow.
