<quoted text> 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.
I'm glad that they are coming to Pocahontas!! I can work in Pocahontas instead of driving out of town spending gas , I can save and do more things with my family. As for the pool I want to thank you for funding it !! Every time you spend in Pocahontas you are helping youth and the people of Pocahontas I say! That's a great return. I just can't wait to see it built.

The problem is that you don't work anywhere and live off welfare.
That plant will bring in some good things but also a lot of unknown issues,
Since most of those that actually work at the picture frame plant will leave to work for higher wages at Peco. The Pinnacle plant will have to either raise their wages or close.
The School system will become overburdened with the influx of new students and there will have to be funding (more Taxes) to pay for more schools.

listen dumb azz,i drive 2 jonesboro 2 work,so does my brother,could probably think of 30 from poky who drive down there. Everyone.i know would take a pay cut 2 work at home. The school system is better when parents work in the same town,not 45 miles away. Only thing we r overburdened with is a dumb azz like you.

I think that they should give the jobs to the people around here before they bring in outside help. Regardless of who they are or what color their skin is. At least give those in our area a chance. Not everyone is lazy like others would have you believe. I'm glad this company is coming in, but automatically bringing in outsiders to work it is almost an insult. I can think of dozens of men and women in our area that drive to Jonesboro or Paragould because there isn't enough jobs locally.

If its like Batesville, you can't get the locals to work in the plants. The work is too hard, cold and bloody with the feeling of death everywhere.

Lol yea, local to Mexico! This hell hole town needs some culture and diversity anyway. Can't wait until you losers end up with 1/2 mexican grandkids!
Think about that one, Clay! Half amigo and half Caucasian! Probably work pretty hard while young, then, over 50, start feeling the urge to "get a ckeck"!
