You are actually thinking of moving to Mountain View, Arkansas?
I would interpret the overall qualifications for living in Mountain View, Arkansas as follows:
*You like being ripped off, and everyone doing their best to cover it up.
*You like being an outcast, because you are not of a inbred status there.
*You are a racist.
*You are a Religious Zealot.
*You are a better than everyone else, Republican.
*You would throw Jesus out the back door of your church if he sat on the front row with long dirty hair and stinking armpits, due to his outward appearance.
Dude, if you fit the above overall criteria, move right in..........Good luck.

Tommy's Pizza is an EXCELLENT choice! Now there is a man "From Off" who has made good in Mtn View. So far as Cash's Hoedown...I wouldn't knowingly give any more money to the Cash family. Just my opinion...take it for what it is worth. Now...the Folk Center is the place to go! The square is alright...but very controversial.

The view of the mountain as a "resident" is most accurately described by RUJOKING.

The view of the mountain as a "vacationer" is most accurately described by From Off.

Agree about Tommy's Pizza........The Best.........
Mountain View, AR., The Worst of all places to reside.
When y'all visit the Cash's, don't forget to ask them Why they were involved in any way, shape, form or fashion, they were involved with the labled, "Habitial Criminal," Andrew Wittchow, who left a courtroom trail in Wisconsin, and now faces felony charges in Mountain View, AR for Theft of people's money and Fraud.

Mayor Cash the owner of Cash's Hoedown summed it all up when he said (paraphrasing) If you don't like it here or you don't like what I do as Mayor and you are from off you can take the same road out that you used to get here. But to be fair he showed the city how to save money by "burying the stray dogs in the ballpark." Now I must say that the show both in the City government and the hoedown is great to watch, but I would suggest sticking to the comedy channel and not Mountain View. To you FROM OFF as much as I like Tommy's Pizza I would prefer to just vacation here to eat it than live here.

Have you had your head tuned up lately by a licensed psychologist or psychiatrist? Hopefully you have to interpret Mountain View, Arkansas as a welcoming place to live. It has to be the antipsychotic medications you are on. It just has to be.

I could not more agree with you. Tommy's pizza is outrageously delicious, and I too would much rather visit and partake of it, and then get the hell out of the town.

We bought our property in '97 but only got to move here in May of '08. We're still in the process of building. While I do love it here, there have been some things come up that I'm not overly happy with. HOWEVER, I grew up in a military town, married a soldier, spent 20 years moving with him, then 5 more years moving around after his retirement traveling with his job as a government contractor, so I figure that I've been there, done that and have come to the conclusion that Mtn. View is no worse than many other places I've been. I firmly believe that the ratio of corruption in the Mtn. View political wheel is no greater or smaller than the average community, big city or otherwise, in this country. Mtn. View is a very small area and therefore, I believe, that folks just hear and see more than folks in larger areas. This being a small town, and so many folks being related to others, business or family-wise, in other neighboring communities, makes the gossip and rumormill work that much harder and faster. I have heard about things said in city council meetings, but haven't heard any of it firsthand. Naturally, with the recent election, we got an earfull on who to and not to vote for here because of corruption, etc. While I don't condone many of the actions that I've seen and or heard about, I also can't call this a bad place to live. Is it Heaven on Earth? For some, yes. For others, it's pure hell. But I've seen that any and everywhere I've ever been. We like it here, but you'll never know everything about an area until you live there.

memarcierenee I agree with you this place is "heaven on earth" and "pure hell". You also might be right about it not being better or worse than most. I do not believe however that any of this justify's what goes on here. This place is as crooked as a mountain road. Have you tried yet to get a local plumber, electrician, heating and a/c specialist to do work here? Trust me when I tell you that even if you get a good price you won't get quality. You probably will have continous problems with whatever they do and you will eventually learn to go to Batesville, Clinton, or Mountain Home for quality at a decent price. Look also at the local government do you see any off's working there? How about the banks? I will bet that there are more banks than there are off's working in them. This town is all about getting your money and then getting rid of you.
I am not trying to say that there is nothing good here. I would just like to see some of the bad get cleaned up. There are just as many wonderful people her (and maybe more) as there are bad. It's the "have's" here that are the problem they want to keep what they have and get the rest too. They hold the rest of the locals and the off's down so that they may continue to accumulate more. It's not people like me that are holding this town back from growing its people like Jim Cash that are doing this. I want this town to grow. I want this town to prosper for all of that is in my best interest.
FROM OFF I understand why you feel the way you do. I felt the same way before I physicaly moved here. I hope your as happy once you do move here as you believe you will be. Unfortunately after you have lived here one to two years I think you will feel different.

I know from experiences from about 15 years ago that the town of Mountain View has a very tight cligue going.Being a picker ,of sorts,I thought I would be welcomed in on the picking sessions on the square but found out very quickly the group is selected and I was told some "green was passed under the table"which is fine with me, just don't try to put the shuck on the visitors who come. Call it like it is. Have a good day

InTheKnow,

You, in my opinion are one of the very few Awakened people who clearly see the Mountain View Dynamics, just as they are. Your depiction of the crooked and low-life Haves in Mountain View who do business dealings with criminals, and then hide behind their money, and apparently hide the criminals as well ought to be brought down. This would in fact, again in my opinion free up some of the people who are held down there, just as slaves were held down many years ago. I am glad there are some people who see what is, and can write it down clearly.

If you know what in the hell is good for you, you had better give Georgia a much closer look.
You will not make it in Mountain View, Arkansas, as someone from Off who moves there.
