Jobs? - 3/25/2014
There is always some type of employment opportunity here in Mississippi. You just have to be open minded and look at all the possibilities. Sometimes a change in lifestyle helps. Living within your means is the main key to success Read More

Hattiesburg The Hub City - 10/26/2013
I just recently moved back to Mississippi from TN. I lived in Jackson before my move to TN and it was decent. I am looking to move from Hattiesburg because it is really small and not widely diverse. I would love also to be in a city that has a wide array of things to do, Hattiesburg is very limited. Hattiesburg is really a place to maybe retire if you want a slow pace southern as southern can get down home feeling. I'm not there yet..The people here just kind of stay to themselves unless you are family or friends through school. I haven't found them to be as friendly and welcoming as TN. This is not a bad thing but I have been living in my apt for over two years and I really don't know my neighbor across the breeze-way. It's more of an hi and bye kind of way of living. I would love to see more art museums and cultural events but that really doesn't happen here. Hattiesburg sits right between Biloxi and Jackson..so, it's really like a small town with hotels inbetween so you Read More

Life in Mississippi is not bad at all. - 6/14/2012
LIfe in Mississippi isn't bad @ all. On a over all scale you can
get alot out of Mississippi. Family life here is wonderful for
raising children. There are pros and cons in every city and state
that you live in or visit. I am originally from PHILADELPHIA PA.
Talk about crime!!!!! I have stayed in Atlanta and there are
plenty of illiterate people there with very little education
as well as gangs etc...etc. However Atlanta has it's benefits
and perks too, so I won't sum negativity in a nutshell for them.
Life is all about choices, and what you make it to be.
I also lived in Miami Florida, and life was alright there
however the negatives of the city not the state out weighed the
bad which is why I relocated to Ms in which by the way, make
alot more money than I did in Miami where they want you to speak
spanish to even get a 8$ job per hour and thats with a degree.
Some places are totally overated, and my Read More

Politicans, Businesses, Healthcare, Working Condit - 11/14/2010
I was in the Gulf Coast (South Coastal Mississippi) in 1976, and am back now
since 2006. There truly isn't much changed, outside of more large casino's. I cannot figure out why the cost of living is so high, it's outragious compared to the realities of living here, services and offerings. Housing cost is outragious compared to wages, jobs and labor conditions are 20-30 years behind times (workers have no rights). Businesses down here are in "LALA Land", as far as prices for goods, services, vehicles and housing go's. NOTHING HAS REALLY CHANGED SINCE I BOUGHT MY FIRST HOUSE HERE IN 1976, while in the USN. In November 2010, housing, food, utilities, electric, gas, basic living items are outragiously priced. Currently there is over 500 empty houses setting in just Jackson county alone. Yet realitors are still trying to sell at near "pre recession prices", the same with car dealers, mortgages companies, banks and businesses, "Its like ignore it, it will go away". Politics down here Read More

Beautiful but Poor - 6/19/2010
MS is a gorgeous state, but where I live it's hard to make a living to support my lifestyle, which is NOT extravagant. Our utilities are high, our property taxes are high, and we also have State income tax. If you're retired and/or have a comfortable income, it's a beautiful place with very friendly Read More

the third world inthe US - 6/18/2010
i am in total agreement here=this writer =who wrote about Gulfport=
has put it best 20 years behind here in health care'/ education
next to nothing provided for poor people=most other places i have lived as a partially disabled low income person there have been food banks clothing banks etc.
i have lived in Pennsylvania and Virginia =specifically Virginia Beach
i am forced to be here now=
but i long for the day when i can return to Lancaster county PA
i cannot believe how bad the clinics for poor folks are=it is alike a third world country=it is dirty here i suppose because it is a Caostal area but it also appears many people have no pride about what their homes look like- it is uinreal how many people live in shacks that would not be allowed elsewhere
would be condemend else where
hard to belive this is opart of Read More
