Whoopeeee cant wait for the local public schools to be chock full. Each of those 1000 Mexican workers will bring an average of five school age children with them. It will be something watching the Pocahontas public schools trying to accodomate thousands more students. and too boot many wont speak English!

We wouldn't have to worry about all the Mexicans moving in if the lazy welfare drawing people would get off their butts and apply for that job! I don't know who's to blame...the lazy Americans or the government for paying them to sit at home!!! Can't blame the Mexican's for stepping up and taking jobs that we won't.

Great idea! Just so people can still get their checks for saying they can't work or find a job... And then we can import some more of our products instead of producing it ourselves. Sounds yummy getting some of our meat from Mexico.

We need a huge influx of Mexicans so all these tattooed fat gals around here can finally get married. Lord knows they're never going to land 'em a real husband as long as they're too fat and lazy to change out of their pajamas before going to Wal-Mart to restock their Lil' Debbie's.
the mayor is hispanic

This is great soon there will be enough hispanics here and then all the city counsel members and the mayor will be spanish speaking!
The Baltzs and declerks etc won't be reelected and that thug of a city attorney will have to find a new way to make a living.

It is about time that Pocahontas came out of the dark ages and became a multi-cultural community, if you don't like it I guess you can move.

The school will have to have more money because of growth which means higher taxes. Don't forget the 135 million dollars of bonds Randolph County sold that must be repaid even if Peco fails. I have wondered what the outcome would have been if we had put one million into 135 different business in Randolph County.

I don't know about that, but you can probably have all the Ebola virus you can use after those chili chompin' Paragons of Hygiene drag it out of that chicken plant on their hands and handle everything at Wally World. Enjoy your severe case of the greasy shits.

3 years ago i advertised for help at 4 bucks over minimum wage,it was cold outside work,after 1 month i had 3 calls,2 from women who said their boyfriends needed work,they wouldn't even call 4 themselves. 1 lady asked if a drug test was required. Hired a mexican fellow yearound,honest,hardworker,tru stworthy and he's earned several raises,cant see the point of hiring local good ole boys.

In Pocahontas, "help" means getting a bank loan approved for a new tattoo.

It's going to be a great thing that Peco is doing for Randolph county! Soon the rivers will be black with the runoff from chicken manure, the air with the foul smell of sick birds and the town crowed with illegal MEXICANS.
BUT WE WILL HAVE THAT FANCY SWIMMING POOL WHERE THE CHILDREN CAN PEE IN.
