To recap, why do you live in West Plains, Missouri? I mean, there "are" prettier places within the U.S. with lower cancer rates, higher paying jobs, and less toothless meth users. Explain yourselves! I only ask that you not tell me that it's because gravedigger lives here.

Because everyone is entitled to make mistakes in their lives and the biggest mistake I ever made was to move to W.P. Still trying to get out. Yep..toothless meth users, meth cookers, high cancer rate, low paying jobs if even jobs still here etc. etc. This is one of those lost areas on this earth.

West Plains has all the BS other towns have. We have things in our favor some places don't; like low crime rate, you can live here without tons of money. Go on to NY or LA. Arkansas is a whole state you can go with nothing but harassment from the government, mostly cops, and lots of un solved murders. Also Tennessee has a high crime rate. People killing over drugs mainly. West Plains has a bit of that and you should.be thankful to live in an area that has amenities close and a fairly low cost of living compared to other places. You all that hate this place should leave. I don't like some things about WP but it's not that bad. You want to complain as humans do!

The crime rate here is pretty ridiculous. I've lived in several major cities and a few small towns around the country. Since moving here I've had things stolen from me twice. I've never even had a dollar come up missing in those big ole' cities you speak of. Even my wife's business has been broken into and vandalized. Low crime rate please! We all know how forthcoming the police are concerning crime statistics. As far as government goes....I've never had the problems in any other state that I do here. Each and every local or state agency is FUBAR!

Lmao! Got your panties in a wad! Hope there not at the bottom of your purse! You're a statistic here then because it happens but there's not many places that you can feel safer because there's not as many crimes here. And Digger rent in these cities are at least $1,200 a month for a rat hole.

Lmao! You are funny. Ha aha,,, I don't drink or do drugs. I'm a hard working tax payer. This town has lost a lot of jobs but so has any other place. If you can't find work here, move. People do it all the time. The economy gets bad, you have to go where there is jobs. I used to rent but I have a house for many years. Rent is higher than it should. E since wages aren't so good but a family still can live cheaper in WP.

I like it here. I was born here and lived in California an a few other places but I always come back here :) I love our beautiful surroundings and scenery. Sure it's not perfect, but no where is. I pay 400.00 a month for a nice rental house (NOT an apartment) near parks for my child :) it's not bad, but I you don't like it, please leave ! As long as you stay out of drugs and anyone to do with drugs you don't have to worry about being found burned up in a car somewhere. Ya know, just the way it is.
