  • Several large companies have completely locked up around here. ther MAY be a total of 180 left in our little burg. Population in the town next to us was 3500..closer to 2000 now. Several churches and sheriff's food pantries are bare. Wildlife poaching has gone up darastically. Even the farmers who are nearing 65-75 age range, should have retired, have fired back and started laying off their help and farming what they can physically handle. I consider my lil family lucky because our home is paid for and we raise a big garden every year and hunt and raise our own meat.
