The Town is being run by a silly man who could not get into College, not even Community College.

He frequently appears to be illiterate and even gave Coach Cal a Plaque full of misspellings.

He also is prone to wild imaginations and crazy ideas that are supported by the local Rag ANE.

There is alot of corruption behind the scenes at City hall.

first, big flippin deal about coach cal, im sick of basketball running this state!!!
we have bigger issues, like jobs, or the lack thereof. and our coal severance money going to that bullshit.
next, putting the post office and a shopping center in that area is a big waste of space, as bad as putting the library over near tractor supply that whole area should have been the location of the expo center and hotels, restaurants, bars, bowling alley or other attractions, miniature golf, etc and gift shops, etc.
that whole area could have been a tourist area. visitors to the expo would have stayed in hotels, shopped, eaten, etc.
the people running things in pikeville are so out of the know and so outdated its pathetic.
and yes, gas is 3.50 at most places in pikeville and pike county, drive to jenkins its 3.19 and in other areas its as low as 3.07 or lower.
its no reason no one wants to come to pikeville, the walmart sucks, gas is too high, nothing to do and no places to visit.

I guess you think the city prices the gas, huh? FYI, the new library is a county library, not the city! The city didn't want it there but the people that did used reasoning such as people can drop their kids off at the library to study while parents grocery shop.... Explains test scores doesn't it...lol

Furthermore, the retail is going in and apartments too! This city has never looked better and there has been more growth in the last ten years in Pikeville than most cities in the state. The census showed Pikeville was second to Louisville in growth percentage genius!

God that is awful!! of course having places to shop is always more important then cheap, affordable hpousing for people. Stop mcomplaing and be thankful for what you do have. You have grocery stores that you can walk into and have shelves stocked with anything you could ever want. Imagine what it would be like to walk into a grocery store that has nothing but a couple loaves of bread and some canned beans. People in other countries don't even know what a grocery store is and are starving. As fotr gas prices. be thankful that you even have a car to put gas in. Be thankful you live in a country were you don't have to worry about being killed. Imagine what it would be like living in one of these countries going through civil war. Imagine what it would be like going to bed every night scared to death. Wondering if a missle is going to come through your roof. How woulde you feel if you had men armed with ak's outside your local Lowe's ready to shoot you. You have been blwessed with every given oppurtunity to be happy and all you care about is a shopping center and high gas prices. While there are people in this world that don't even know where their next meal is coming from. They don't even know what a shopping center is or would care even if they did have one. You know, we don't have much here. But be thankful for what you do have. You have everything you could ever need right here for you. Shelves upon shelves of groceries, gas stations all over the place, hospitals. Did you know that getting just basic health care is a major issue for many people in the world. You have pharmacy all over theplace where you can get medecine. Do you know how many people in the world can't even get basic medications for pain or fever. This is why many people throughout the world think American's are spolied. There are people in this world that would anything just for a quater of what you have. There are people in the world that would stand amazed to walk into a grocery store and see shelves stocked with more meat and vegetables then they could ever eat. Furnitures stores filled with nice furniture. it's amzing you have really been given so much inlife and all you care about is a library, a shopping center and gas prices. You don't have to loive your life in terror wondering if you're going die the next day. Please get a clue and stop your complaining.

For starters: TL;DR.

But really, we're not comparing Pikeville to a third-world country. We're comparing it to other similarly-sized towns in Kentucky and America, and finding it...rather lacking.
