yeah, if the shoe fits, as they say. i think that they should have added the rest of the county to that list too because perry county people are the unhappiest people that i have ever met in my entire life. the sadness is not just in hazard. you can spend some time in and near vicco, acup & jeff to see what i mean.

Since when was Hazard "growing"? Most of the people that I grew up with who were from Perry County have left Perry County, and none of them regret it. A few numb stoners and a few tattooed pillbillies from other states may have moved here to take their place, but I sure don't see any great population growth going on right about now. Do you?

None of this shocks me. I'm so glad that I moved away from Perry County eight years ago. You couldn't pay me a million dollars to move back here if I had to stay here more than a month. I would rather be poor and living in a shack, which I'm not, thanks to leaving this drug-infested dump, and getting a great job somewhere else. I'm so glad that when my younger brother moves away from here this week, I won't have a reason to ever come back here again.

I agree to much drama people starting stuff to make it look bad on others . People accusing without knowing. Drugs everywhere.

True. People in Perry County should worry more about finding a job instead of gossiping, pills and welfare checks.

They confirmed what I already knew because I grew up here and watched myself and other Hazard residents sink further into depression with each lost relative and friend to drugs, each lost job, each business closing, and each false rumor spread. Dr. Oz isn't telling us anything that we didn't already know since childhood.
