I like how the Quill credited this distinction in a big part to "marketing". I guess if you have people in your town who are good at marketing, your town could make this list. In other words, the distinction becomes quite "meaningless". With this kind of marketing, maybe we can make it in the top 10 on the Top 10 Best "Big" City List. Come one, come all! To quote KY-3, THIS IS THE PLACE TO BE!

*** Special thanks to the efforts of our new Marketing Director and Tourism Director Todd Shanks. Nice job buddy.

You may as well as "why everything shits!" Cause it just because its that way. The money people control the wages and what comes in. It's a bunch of bullshit! We need some nice things to do without all it being too costly as we don't get the wages they get in the city. Rent and gas are higher here than in Springfield. It's because of GREED!

I heard a few stories....if the story about lowes is true and the old butler building is true that goes to show what incompetence rules the day....in WP. I have said for years Willow Springs or Pomona is a better investment for your money. If I were a big time investor I would look that way...Mtn View and Willow may not be perfect but are more of an open shop.

Maybe the magazine should have checked some crime and poverty statistics before taking the word of whoever wrote the "why my town is the best small town" essay.

http://www.neighborhoodscout.com/mo/west-plai...

It lists west plains as safer than 2% of the towns in the country, along with horrible childhood poverty and low home values. Ninth best small town in the US? I think most in the area recognize that Mnt Home is better, and its only an hour away.

They have thins they rate to name the town one of the best. One of the things WP has is a college, Mtn. Home doesn't have that. Their library resources, etc. there's criteria.

I'm a realist you moron! Is Pine Bluff, AR on that List? How about East St Louis? I'd be willing to bet none of the cities on that list have a black population of over 20%
