Well, of course it is! And will always be that way too! No one cares, that's the reason its this way! As long as people keep crying and slinging snot about how bad it is. Then when approached to do something about it. They same old answer, I don't want to get involved! That is the Gods Truth too!

Life is whatever you make of it. If you surround your self with bad and make your life like a Sh1+ hole then thats on you. I live in Meigs and I am perfectly content. I'm sure there are many others that will tell you the same thing.

You've got that right! Meigs problem stems from all the social government money paid out each month. If the people of the county had to get a job, go to work each day it would be a better place. No time to lay around drunk, making babies, stealing, assaulting, and every other unless things that idle hands do!

I have lived in Meigs county all my life and have many good friends here.I have always had a job and have never drawn public assistance.I agree Meigs county has too many people drawing public assistance that should not be.As I've said numerous times before several of our citizens need these benefits to survive,stop slandering everyone who gets benefits,because some abuse the system,help get those who are simply too lazy to to get off their asses and work out of the system.We also have several people who lie,cheat,steal and deal in drugs to get their money.Most of the people in Meigs county are very good people,some are not.There is something seriously wrong with the thinking that all the people are bad,when you say the entire county is screwed up,you're saying all the people is as well,the county is people,not land.If you seriously want change,DO SOMETHING TO HELP IT CHANGE.If you turn a blind eye to stealing,drug dealing,or lying to collect welfare,you are part of the problem,not the solution.

Very well said and your absolutely right! But as I have read and heard that the Justice System is not quite fair in Meigs County. The Courthouse can have two identical cases just different people. One will get a harsher outcome then the other. Due too, it is who you know and rub elbows with! You quite know this is the truth too! There is good and bad in all walks of life!

There is no "perfect" this side of heaven. Meigs County is what it is. It's an economically challenged area. It is actually a beautiful place to raise a family if you have e means to support them. The biggest issues are that there isn't enough jobs locally to support our population and those that do work are becoming more and more tired of supporting those that don't. People turn to drugs to forget their miserable lives (and then become addicted) and then crime follows.
I don't know much about the ways of the court system in Meigs County because I have blessed to not have to be there.
As much as it will hurt and be tough for some in the short term, we need to vastly reduce the amount of people who receive government support and create jobs for those who should be working. We are getting a first-hand look at what socialism does and why it never works.

I dont have a problem with them on welfare as much as so many choose to live in trash dumps. Get off your butts and clean up around you place. Energy makes energy..

Do yourself a favor and the rest of Meigs County a huge public service.Rent a u-haul ,pack all of your belongings into it and drive to the west coast and stay there till you go to your final resting place.You probably have a good idea of where that will be.The odor where you currently reside will improve dramatically.

There have been several people offer good advise and wisdom in this thread.
Take it or leave it.
There is some good and bad every where. A lot of people in Meigs County are very happy with their lives. Judging by this thread alone, the majority are either satisfied with their lives or chose to NOT blame the location for their short-comings.
I think it probably depends on what and who you surround yourself with. There are plenty of fine people around here. Take a drive through the county. Look at nature and all the beautiful landscapes. There are so many nice homes, new construction going on, the village of Pomeroy seems to be packed during the day. I've noticed a lot of traffic and NOT just during the first of the month. There must be SOME good going on.
Leads you to believe, that anyone who has nothing satisfying going on in their own life, perhaps needs to regroup, make some good choices, and maybe try to start over. OR relocate as everyone else has suggested. But, don't expect anyone or anyplace to make you happy. That is up to you.
