Not to argue but you're comment makes no sense. If a retired person moves into a town they typically buy a home and pay taxes. They shop and spend their money in the same stores and places as you do. They add to the value of a community.Okay, for all of you that haven't noticed Pocahontas is becoming a retirement get away or even home for those seeking a quiet and some what pleasant atmosphere for retiree's. That is why its hard to find a decent job in Pocahontas. I mean nothing against retiring people whom wish to grace us with their MONEY and presence but for those of us trying to make a living in their hometown we got to realize we might live here but to keep pokey thriving we will have to spread our imaginary wings and branch out to outlying cities to earn the money to give to our town; be it in crazy arse grocery bills at Walmart or to the gas stations and restaurants.
They don't compete with others over jobs because they have an income. Another thing is most of them have come from small towns but left for better wages in other areas but decided it was time to get out of the big cities.
If you're not happy with whatever town you live in, it's free country to go wherever you feel you can do better.
