This Town

yea, I have shared some good ideas. 1. the skateboard park (I think it's what the kids needed. 2. why should we tear down the train bridge someday we may need trains running through here again. 3. the city should purchase the old wal-mart and turn it into a mini mall. that way we could save on gas and bring a lot of good businesses to one central location. instead of having a business foot the bill to build a new building only to have it close down cause they couldn't keep their payments up.  (Nov 11, 2008 | post #97)

tourism committee

I would love to see Pocahontas grow..I agree that with more things to offer the more revenue it brings in..I just want to point out that as of now, Pocahontas as a whole doesn't have anything that would attract tourisim. I'm all for a business coming in here, small or large..but certain local socialites are promoting this town as a tourist town..when it's not..small gas stations and/or fast food joints is not something for tourists to come and see. Because every town has these things. A tourists wants to drive and see something that other towns don't..i really think the problem is, their definition of tourism. Their is really nothing in this town to attract out of towners. I wish there was but their isn't. If i'm wrong please post the places on here. I love to visit places some maybe I just don't know about them. But food joints and gas stations don't attract tourists.  (Nov 4, 2008 | post #16)

Oh wait, here is a history tour that you can promote...you can tour the old Waterloo factory or the old Brown shoe factory...and for lunch u can eat at the hillcrest, oh wait it's no longer here..so I guess u can eat at the branding iron..wait, they closed down also. next place to close is the barbque joint. all the big shots want to make this town something but yet they shop and take their business out of town. I have yet to run into any of them at our local wal-mart.  (Nov 4, 2008 | post #13)

tourism committee

I would be all for tourism if there was something here worth driving to see...i have heard some out of town people complaining because they have driven all the way to Pocahontas to look at nothing. Please don't make this town out to be something it's not and that is a site seeing town. I love this place and i have driven thousands of miles to see things. There is nothing here worth driving a couple of hours to see. I wish there were but there isn't...this town is dying. This town has big wigs in it trying to make this place out to be somthing that it's not...I would love for something like a nice lake, mall or anything exciting to be here and draw in people, but it's not here.  (Nov 4, 2008 | post #12)

tourism committee

does Pocahontas really need a Tourism Committee? I've lived here for nearly 50 yrs. I love Pocahontas, but to try and turn this into a tourism town. Their is nothing to see..the old courthouse and the lame liberal centry wall that's about it..they tore down the best thing we had and that was the train bridge.  (Nov 3, 2008 | post #1)

the chamber needs to get off their butts and do their job..jonesboro is getting a new plant in that is hiring 700 people..i bet our chamber didn't even attempt to get them here..i rarely talk bad about anybody but our chamber is terrible here in Pocahontas..i think they just use it as a status symbol. but they aren't fooling me. if not prove me wrong..  (Nov 3, 2008 | post #69)

Pocahontas Ex-Deputy Charged with Stealing Fuel

why do u say all of the cops..i have not once hassled a skateboarder. I don't look at skateboarders as being property damaging kids too lazy to get a job. I think that they are people who are enjoying a sport and having a blast at it..so don't judge all cops.  (Oct 31, 2008 | post #63)
