Has Changed not for the Better!!! Posted On: 2/22/2012 4:20:44 PM
I grew up in Decatur and I still have family there, but it depresses me to see what it has become. It has a high unemployment rate, many business have closed or are run down, and its just an eyesore. SAD!!! Even the mall which was once a good place to go no longer has a bookstore so Decatur doesnt have a lot and if you have a job there consider yourself lucky or you may lose it. I moved away a year ago and Iam married living in Az my husband and I have family there and we knew each other in high school and whats sad is when I call home I hear other cities near Decatur are thriving while Decatur is not growing and losing people its depressed. I wish the economy was like the 70's/ 80's but times have changed and in 50 yrs Decatur has been on a downfall making mistakes in the economy. I wish my hometown luck but its a GHOSTtown!!!
Beautiful Here!!! but Pricey!!! Posted On: 2/22/2012 4:06:15 PM
The sun, the beauty, but its pricey to live here, but the view is goregous. I love the mild weather in the winter, and it can get congested with traffic but the weather / beauty make up for it hands down!!! I hope that the ecomony gets better though.
