I agree 11:41. I have seen the workforce numbers and it is one of the worse in the state.

Also - the local Area Business Closure list 'ain't nothing to brag about' so I'm with you - it is an ABSOLUTE SCAM. As you can probably guess - election time is coming around and the regime in place is throwing-up a smoke screen to try and camouflage the real facts.

If you don't like it here, you are free to move..rather than just sit around and complain about it on a blog.

2:31 - Who is complaining? From my perspective, the two previous commenters were just trying to put things into the proper perspective.

You can try and put a mustache on a Cadillac and call it a Lincoln - but that still doesn't make it a Lincoln.

Whatever spin they are trying to spin - I am not drinking the kool aid either.

2:12. you're another one if those clowns who think workforce stats represent employment. they don't. and that business closure list that gets passed around is ancient history dating back to Campbell's Those closures had nothing to do with local conditions and everything to do with corporate strategies and outsourcing American jobs
