I have lived in Sparta for just over a month. I have to say that the majority of the people I have came across have been very nice and helpful, however in a town like this if you are given any form of power then it immediately goes to your head. I have lived here without lights or water and have found no way of getting help. 500.00 in deposits is an insane number.

I agree with Govt Hustla. And why did you move if you didn't have the money for deposits? It's not that Spartans are snooty...people need to quit expecting a handout. That's a huge problem with this country. White Co. is not a rich county and people have to work hard for what little they have...give it a try.

Did you not know what your deposit would be sure you did. Now your looking for a way to get help best i can do for you is go to work find a job. And don't start with the no jobs in sparta. If you won't to work you can find a job if not keep begging .

The deposits are extreme around here.
AND your responses are snooty.
I paid cash for a home so don't pull the beggar bull on me.

first off I don't remember asking anyone on here for help.

Secondly I have a job. I am currently in the military. Which anyone that has even an ounce of knowledge about anything, you know the military gets paid little. And when I got stationed in the area, I chose a location that was relatively inexpensive to live in.

Third, I wouldn't ask for help financially if I knew someone who had a million dollars. I am independent. So please, before you get on trashing people, why don't you learn to be a little politer, you might actually become a mature adult at that point.

I didn't know there were any military bases even close to sparta unless you are talking guard. Second, since when did the military let you pick where you wanted to go? Must have changed since I retired from the real military two years ago. Third, if you are in the military, they give you a housing allowance that suplements your normal pay.

Sorry I thought you said in your first statement you said . You have lived without lights water for a month and 500.00 for a deposit and found no way of getting help. When you said you found no way of getting help what did you mean Help in finding what .

You are absolutely correct! these companies here are atrocious with their rules and fees. Ben Lomand phone forcing you to get a land line in order t5o have the only internet service available in the area. Caney Fork charging what they want on the electric bill with no one to dispute what they "Claim" you have used. BUT THE WORST OF THE WORST has to be the Water Districts around here! Good ole Boy networks at their finest. charging outrageous deposits then charging what they want for this nasty cruddy water with no accountability of anything.

Yes I have to agree with new comer. The cost of deposits are out of this world. When I moved down here 14 years ago they weren't as bad. Then when I moved away and back afew months later it was like what the hell is with the costs now. I paid my bills on time and in full why do we have such huge deposits still. As for ben lomand heck with them frontier if you are in city limits is better anyways. But yeah its crazy hard working, money pinching penny and you still can't get anywhere with the dang deposits around for anything elect, car, insurance, water, phone, ect..... It's the dang good ole boy we want the money but your serice is crap and there isn't nothing you can do about it but move or deal with it all. Other then that it's not a bad town to live in.
oh yes

The reason they charge these large deposits is because the deadbeats around here will leave without paying their bill.

This IS Sparta after all.

What type help are you looking for NEW COMER, because you said you have lived without lights and water for a month and haven't found no way of getting help. As for the others replies what you say is true but im not sure who gives help for any type deposit. Sounds like another person asking for money not a lot of handouts on this site lol.

What a freaking liar. You're stationed in Sparta? Sorry, our National Guard in town doesn't "station" people. I am ARMY, I am STATIONED in Clarksville. FT Campbell. I am also from Sparta and started out in the Guard then went fulltime. True, military donest make a ton of money, but we don't do it for the money, we do it for the love of our Country, family. We do it because we're willing to sacrifice all that we have in order to keep ALL of us safe. but one thing we DO NOT do is cry like a pussy on the internet that we can't afford to pay a damn deposit. you are a fraud and should be ashamed of yourself for using your pathetic attempt at life and use the military as a scapegoat for not making enough money. You are not military. you are welfare trash.

I'm sorry master, I had no idea that God himself got on topic and knew so much. I guess the I'd in my pocket and my orders to the area are a figment of my imagination and again I NEVER asked anyone for anything I got on venting about the insane deposits. So before you talk anymore crap about someone why don't you get a clue. Moron

Every county I've ever lived in required phone to get other services. I currently live in Smithville and dtc did it also. It's part of it. Do buy there service.

Thats why I went to charter instead of ben lomand. not to mention charter has better internet and cheaper packages. screw ben lomand. BUT i dont get your gripe on the deposits. mine werent bad at all. plus i dont believe you are military either. if you were you would be receiving housing allowance like i did while i was in the marines. you shouldnt be on here crying like a little girl.. too many holes in your story. sounds like you are just a deadbeat troll that lost their welfare check.
