More important than growth is quality. Improve the quality of life and growth in the best way will follow. You just do not want to grow old and feeble without contributing to humanity.

No one wants to start a business in that town because it is trashed. Why would a smart business person come to Verona and waste their money on a slum town that generates no money. Everyone in Tupelo knows that it is not safe to be there and no one goes there unless just passing through.
Verona MS needs gutted from trash to homes that will first make it a safe place for people to live. Then and only then will quality of people move there. Racism plays a huge part of this community also, if your not related or the same color you will not be heard. It's a shame that the future of this town is so miscalculated by one person that thinks he has the cure..wrong direction Trice..clean it up and make it safe first.
