I am so sick of carter co. we care more about a jail than about our childrens education We pour all this money in to a hotel for criminals,and the schools end up having to cut positions due to the lack of MONEY something is WRONG with place.

I am sorry that you feel that way "ur right". I moved here 5 years ago from Florida where the schools are big, crime is high, and you never know who owns the grocery store. I love it here in Roan Mountain and the people here are some of the most welcoming and down to earth people I have ever known! I for one DO care about this community and the people in it-and in fact have personally been a home heath care provider for many of this communities bed ridden and dying for the whole time I have been here. This is mine and my boys home now and we will NOT be leaving. It seems that your judgement of all people that have moved here is misguided. I would be more concerned with the drug problem and lack of employed citizens in this community ruining Roan Mountain's name- rather than pointing the finger at the people who move here because of Roan Mountain's beauty! And to address the 1st post- I am so sick of criminals being treated better that our children are also! My kids go to both Cloudland schools- I feel they deserve so much better! I am with you on that one! Carter county needs to wake up and give these kids what is THIER right- EDUCATION! It is pretty sad that the criminals get more meals than my kids do, free health care while I pay for ours, and education, and our kids are pretty much being pushed out of thier school!

Let me be the first to welcome you to RM. The real problem around here is the locals. Narrow-minded, judgmental hypocrits who love to gossip. I'm not saying everyone, but I would say a good 30 percent of the locals here only care about their next high. they don't want to work for anything better so that is why its so hard to get anything done around here.

Its not just Roan mtn its all of carter co.could you give me an example of what you mean.I think its that way all over not just in Roan mtn.Most of the people i know do their very best I'm not saying all of them but most.Are the people rude to you or what,alot of the people there have been pushed around by the people that has moved here Some not all.I know at the high school we had to take down the TEN COMMANDMENTS just because of 1 or 2 kids that had moved here.Most people move in and try to fit in but some want it the way it is where they came from.They try to take over keep in mind not all but some.I hope you love living here and i hope that all of your family enjoys living here.I HOPE YOUR ONES THAT FIT IN NOT ONES WHO WANT TO TAKE OVER.GO LANDERS

The real problem here is the people that want to keep things just the way it is and not progress. If you ain't moving forward, you're going backward.

The last post was what I had in mind when I speak of narrow-minded. Locals are scared to death of change and instead of engaging in civil dialogue, they start screaming "go the h*ll back where you came from". Like you said, its not all, but there are enough of them that it slows progress. I've visited most of the local churches in the area and most of them are just social circles. but I guess you are right, its not just around here.

well your post is what i had in mind when i speak of smartass foreigners moving in here, and trying to take over, just because fedup was just posting what was on their mind you had to stick your 2 cents in with a nasty little comment by calling them narrow-minded.see its people such as yourself that run around to all the local churches acting like you some kind of saint then talking about them by calling the churches in roan mtn social circles, you sound like a troublemaker to me as far as being scared of a change i am not nor is most people in roan mountain ,but i wouldnt like to change on account of people like you,as far as schools goes why should we have to change to accommodate foreigners i think if you want to live and go to school here you should have to be the one to change to our ways of living not the other way around.i think what the country should do anyhow is round up all you yankees and mexicans and gays and put every dam one of you on a island somewhere away from society.........

yes your right were just a bunch of narrow minded crack smoking hillbillies, that goes to church on sundays and gossip in a social ring about how we dont want to change to your life style were so pathetic. so please dont even think about moving to roan mtn we have enough foreigners living here already.
