I think not .Why should we have to pay them to party , take trips and sit on their tails and we get -0-.
The Chamber of Commerce are Republicans. That says it all don't it? I think small mom and pop places should be able to survive and not only Giant Corporations that try to monolopize all the market for themselves. If you like working for peanuts then support them.
So true

This is the reason I am so glad I went back to work over in Dalton ga. I can get all my running around like the drug store, grocery store, etc. and not have to put up with all of this stupidity in Chatsworth ga. You can't even go to the drug store or dollar store without there being a lot of stupids waiting on you.
This is the dumbest place i have ever witnessed. I hate even thinking about going shopping around here. Just a disaster is all it is. They are always out of at least 1 or 2 items everytime you go into walgreens. When you ask something they get this duhh look on their face. Like it is their first day on the job!!

Trust me, I'm doing my best in school, it's my ticket out
When you get in the army you will learn real fast that life is not a game .You can"t deside for yourself what you want to do because you belong to the army and they deside for you .You have got a lot of growing up to do and the army will make sure that you do .You are still a kid even though you think you are grown .Nothing comes easy in this world .The way you have put people from Murray Co.down is a shame .Murray Co. has a lot of good people living here but you would not know that because you are still a kid and you think you can change the world .The army will help you with that to .

There is nothing wrong with wanting to change the world. I'm glad that you care enough to see when something is wrong and want to change it. Murray County needs more people that feel like than can make a change. Not any more that sit around saying that's just how it is. Good luck to you.

The rest of who ? You have a head on your shoulder but there is nothing in it .Your comments such as (I've never been drinking) and ( I will never make it anywheres ). I think you need to start over in the third grade and try again .Even Murray Co. people speak better than you that did"nt go to school . Read the comments you posted and see how stupid you sound .

To all the people that say I'm stupid and I don't know what I'm talking about or I havent been to the real world.. You wouldn't understand what I mean until you actually leave and live somewhere else for a couple of years and come back. I'm not trying to be rude so don't be rude to me. If you're an adult, act like it. I know not everyone is bad, but the people that "count" are. I know I'll have to listen to the military when i go in, common sense dont you think? I've been around military for years. I took basic training already in Fort Jackson, SC. I'm not stupid. It's hard to change something when people don't let you.

I was once young and I know what you are saying. Not that I am almost 64 I realize that I have traveled roads that you are yet to travel. Nothing will educate you any better that first hand mistakes. I consider myself lucky to be alive these days. I used to be a very wreckless driver in the worst kind of a way. I would take off spinning and stop sliding. I would hold my car on 120 mph for several miles at a time passing everything in sight day in and day out. I had no fear even when I lost control and spinned around four times before coming to a stop. I thought it was funny then. I laughed at the people that witnessed my doing this because it scared them so bad. My girlfreind, now my wife for 44 years finally talked me into slowing down. I was not a drinker or I would not be here today. I look back and think how stupid it was that I endangered other peoples lives the way I did. Outrunnig the law was one of my favorite things to do back then. Looking back, I thought there was no one smarter than I was. As it turns out, there was no one dumber than I was. Brains keep on maturing till the mid twenties like it or not. My advice is to listen to elders and take heed in what they are trying to teach you. I have witnessed a lot of children getting killed because they didn't listen. Stay off alcohol, ciggeretts and drugs. Drive carefully like you would like others to drive. Respect will take you a long way. I have traveled to a lot of places and as it turns out, Murray County is the best place I have found hands down. It is home to me. Corrupt leaders are everywhere and Murray County is no exception. You see powerful people usually abuse their power when it comes to family, lust and money. That's just the way it is.
Love it. This reminds me of how my brother was growing up. Unfortunately, he never changed his ways and now sits in prison because he thought he was above the law. Glad your life turned out better.

Perhaps before you go slamming people for their inept vocabulary you should work on your grammar. It's *you're* for crying out loud!!

I proudly live and work in Murray county. Yes we have major problems here starting with the school system and on. I graduated from Murray county high. I do not work in a carpet mill, but I use to. If I ever had to again I would. If I lost my job tomorrow I would work at McDonald's if I had to. In life u will find sometimes u have to do what u have to do to survive and provide. You should never be ashamed of where u come from. Be proud because it made u the person you are or will become. I have a child at high school, middle school, and 2 at elementary. I hope that I've shown them with hard work they can choose to be and do whatever their heart desires even if that means living a meager Murray County. If someone didn't work the little jobs we wouldn't have carpet, fast food, or dollar stores. I assure u someone needs those jobs to live. I know we have our problems but look around at how beautiful our mountains are. We live in a great place, the bad stuff is just more public. ...and yes there is deer meat in my freezer right now.
