He can't sell what has already been sold by the previous admin. Scott County is nothing but a big mud hole right now and it will get worse than it is.

Been there, you are right. This county is fixing to be buried under that big ole mud hole. Oh well, this seems to be what the county wants, to be sold out. This is my county but, personally, I can't wait to hear the people crying. All I can say is the people did this to themselves. It is all over except for the handing out of crying rags.

Well i'm not saying tibbals was the right choice, but as far as handing out crying rags i think there is enough people in this county cring already from lost jobs, no jobs, cutting out unemployment. I suppose tibbals was mayor and had control over all that. I say no. Personally i am glad to see keeton out of office he should have been out a long time ago.

Think they may be referring to the tire shredding thing.

Yeah, like Johnny King was ever going to bring those jobs here. He had no intention of opening that place in Scott County, it was all about politics and trying to get his sister (Carolyn Lay) elected. You want to blame someone, how about the business owner (Johnny King) that chose to go back to Kentucky.

Same as the old days. People sitting around waiting for the Tibbles to create them a job. Those people do not care about any of you.Best thing to do is move on like a lot of others did, me for one. Scott County is not the only place in the world to live and work.People with money are not concerned about how you feel or what you think. think on it and move on . Tibbles could care less about you and your family.He is going to do what is best for his pocketbook.

People who have money and are in business are going to do whatever it takes to enhance their wealth and position. They are not interested in the people who do not have any money.They are going to set up businesses that make them money. If they hire you it is because you have a skill or talent that they can make a profit off your productivity. I doubt any one in Scott County who is in business is in it to make money for the workers. That is not the way it is done.

Lumber and coal was the foundation of the economy of the county and towns in the county, that is gone. The people who worked in these industries did not have the or get the opportunity to develop any other skills. The area is off the beaten path so to speak. I doubt any Hi-Tech company is going to move in and unskilled manufacturing is too expensive in the states. China and other parts of the world has labor for cents per hour when Americans want dollars per hour.

If you have some kind of business knowledge you might get something going in the tourist business otherwise you are going to be working in it part time at minimum wage. That is the way it is and that is why as others have told you if you want something better you need to find it else where. If you are uneducated,unskilled and expect a high paying job good luck. Not much of that around anymore and the Mexicans have it.

If you are a young person and are smart ,have the ability to develop your self you need to move on to greener pastures.
I did along time ago and do not regret it.So did a lot of others. We made it and so can you if you are willing to adapt to new surroundings and learn new things.

The guys with the money in the county who are already set up are not going to give you anything or let anything come in that will jeopardize their position.

you are wasting your time. They don`t give a crap if they have anything more than some kind of roof over their head and something to eat. If they did they would have been gone. I used to think I could get a few to see the light but you can see the response, they think they are living in paradise.

weather its paradise or not its were i chose to live. and for your information no place is paradise, every place has its problems. the only paradise is heaven. but maybe you dont that. you moved away thats your business, we chose to stay here thats our business. just tired of you all putting us down. you are no better than me just in your own minds and that doesnt count to anybody but you.
