I have noticed more empty apartments. Some of them used to always be 100 percent occupied. But it looks like the plaza arms (or whatever it is called) just had someone moved in so there is now one living there, Carriage heights looks like its about 40 percent occupied and looks like Arrowhead Cove is half empty - but not sure.

As far as homes for sale behind pizza hut, I remember when there were only a handful of homes there less than 30 years ago.

people don't want to live in a town where there are very few jobs (that you can afford to live on the pay), the schools suck, and there is nothing to do. If the people who are responsible for running this town would put the money into making it a better place then people would quit moving away but so long as the people in charge won't do anything to make it better why should people stick around and wait for it to completely go to he11

A lot of these landlords raised the average rent through the roof when the power plant workers were here. They knew the PP guys could afford rent hundreds more than it was worth and use to be. Now all the power plant workers are gone, and no one is lowering rent back to what the average Osceola renter can afford. The house I'm currently renting is $550 a month. Should be about $400 a month. Just a perfect example of what's going on here.

Please are selling their houses because their light bills are more than their mortgage.

Osceola WILL BE a ghost town in 10 years.

This town is finished and sinking at the same time. The rate the farmers are sucking water out of the ground to irrigate their crops is creating one big sink hole. Water does not drain uphill. Mark my words one of these days we will get a huge rain & this place will be under 4 feet of water.

oops, I knew plaza arms did not sound right in my previous post, it should have been Park Terrace. Plaza arms is in Blytheville.

Though rent in Osceola is high, rent in blytheville is higher and Jonesboro is even higher than the other two. I have rented in all three towns.

I live in the area around Alicia. It was a good neighborhood until houses were bought to be rented out. Since then everything has gone steadily down. A lot of renters just trash the houses and yards. Drug dealing and partying all night. Some of us work and don't get free govt. help so we can sit at home all day. Having kids and getting HUD and govt. checks is the way of life for them. Why work and have any pride in where you live when you get free money for nothing?

I Say Less than 10 years. Who wants to live there anymore?They Caun't pay the High Light Bills or the High rent. Most of the people in Osceola, Are on Fixed Incomes. They can't pay those high bills, And eat too. So, I Say Move Out, somewhere that they can live without worry.

theres been ads in the osceola times about everything pertaining to the electric company recently except a electric rate comparison between the different cities in North East Arkansas. They did compare water rates but not electricity. I wonder what they are afraid of????
