I was in the Shoals over the weekend visiting with family and decided to drive around my hometown and other places.

The usual, depressing part of my trip was seeing Russellville. I grew up in that area and am saddened every time I see it now. With the exception of the new sidewalks they are putting in, the place has fallen into disrepair. I can remember it looking like your average small town when I was a kid. I remember parades with balloons and cotton candy. It just isn't the same. And, look, I know there's a large population of Mexicans living there now; that fact can't be ignored. Though I can understand them coming here for better opportunities, we can't keep importing another country's poverty...but that's a subject for another thread. It's just not the same town I grew up in.

On Sunday, I decided to drive around for a while before the fireworks were scheduled to start. I ended up at the Florence Industrial Park - just to see if I recognized any of the businesses that are out there now and discovered there's hardly anything out there anymore at all.

So I am curious: Where does everyone work now? Do most of you drive to Huntsville or something? There are some really nice, expensive homes in the Shoals, too, and I'm wondering how people are buying them. They can't all be doctors and lawyers. Have any of your family members or friends moved away for better job opportunities? Again, just curious.

The place just looks like a ghost town. I do sometimes miss living there but it looks so vacant now...and I know there are no jobs.
Original Post
I wouldn't call the area a ghost town. Russellville is probably one on the decline.

The Shoals is definitely more diversified than many areas of similar size. There is no one place that everyone, or at least one family member, works but you do still have TVA, Wise, the hospitals, schools, some newer industries in Barton and Muscle Shoals, and many smaller employers that service some of these larger ones.

I actually know of no one that is actively looking for work that can't find it, but I'm sure there are some. There are a good number of people that work in Huntsville or Decatur but still choose to live in the Shoals, and I think that says a lot for our area as to a great place to live, raise children, or even retire.

The Shoals has done ok during the Great Recession and in my opinion is poised for an above average rebound with the low cost of living and the educational and training opportunities offered by our local colleges.

Why do you think there are no jobs? You came for a weekend and found out from that visit there are no jobs??
I don't know anybody that is looking for a job but I know plenty of people that has a job.
I hate it when people come from out of town and start looking down there nose at us.
Javier,

Yes, I visited over the weekend. I do that sometimes because I grew up there. And because I grew up there and still have family there, the Shoals is not exactly a foreign land to me. Roll Eyes

Nowhere in my initial post did I give the impression I was looking down my nose at the Shoals. I was just curious where everyone works now (thought I expressed that pretty clearly) because the industrial park looks dead and I didn't see many new businesses.

My initial post was an honest observation about the area. I'm sorry you couldn't pick up on that.

So where are all the good paying jobs in the area, Javier?
Buttercup, I wonder that myself and I live here.
TVA is still here, but when I started work with them, they employeed about 35000. When I retired, there were only 12,000, and I understand there are a lot less now,and that's valley wide, so I would venture to say TVA is not a major employer in the area.Ford, and Reynolds gone, Wise here but I don't know how big they are, and Robbins is probably a fairly large place.
Yet, there are houses going up every day that I would guess are in the 200K+ and for sure, I don't know where that much of that kind of money is coming from.
I grew up in Russellville too, my old teen stomping grounds. People still ride the strip on week-ends but it's 85% Mexicans. There's been new business's & churches come in but it's Mexicans.
The town is definitely not what it used to be (thanks to the Mexicans) but I wouldn't call it a ghost town.
As for the tri-cities, there is business's in the Industrial Park so I don't know how you missed them. There's also TVA & Wise.
I've wondered the same thing about the new homes going up on 6th St.
I don't think the tri-cites looks like a ghost town either but maybe it's because we like it & consider it home. Cool
Buttercup, where do you live?

Well, then many businesses in the industrial park don't see a need to put up a sign indicating what's there. All I saw were a lot of buildings. Then again, it was a holiday and no one was working anyway, I assume.

I'll always have a certain affection for the area too. I know it's a good place to raise kids and feel safe and all that but it's sad that so many people have to move away to find a job.

I wouldn't mind living in the Huntsville area and have it on the radar once the economy improves.
Buttercup, don't expect the majority here to admit there's a problem. Ever. If their gumment tells them everything's okay, then it's OKAY, dadburnit. A good many here are retired, a good many on assistance, and I doubt, with all the extended unemployment benefits, too many are looking for a job. And if they are, yes, they'll either have to commute or accept minimum wage. That is, unless they know somebody.
I believe that the chicked factory jobs(i.e. Russelville) had a hard time filling their workforce. These dirty/meanial jobs were too low for people around here or where ever.

My cousin, a upper manager of 2 local plants told me this.

Expensive homes are not the only luxury item I can understand that's owned.
I wonder how all the younger kids drive new super 4 wheel drive trucks, Beamers, and/or top-o the line cars? I figure they must be financed by their daddy's retirement cause you sure can't afford them with a minimum wage job. At least I couldn't 30 years ago.
My husband and I have a small business (distributorship) that would allow us to live anywhere in AL, MS or TN. We choose to live in Florence because we love it here.

The Shoals area is beautiful, culturally rich and one of the safest in the country. We have plenty to do for fun/leisure, but are within driving distance to larger cities if we need/want something extra.

I have no desire to live in a large city that quite literally stinks, fight horrid traffic conditions and pay a fortune to live in a tiny space. I sincerely hope I am never forced to for financial reasons. JMHO

I'm not trying to be contrary, but could you please tell me what there is to do around here besides eat? Especially for young people? I mean something that's not sports or church related and that's cheap/free. How many times can you go to the river, Ivy Green, the Indian Mound, etc.? Unless you have family here, I see nothing that would make someone ever want to move here except maybe the mild winters and lower cost of housing. That's fine, but what the heck do you do when you GET here?

What do people do, you ask. What did people do 25-50-100 years ago. Why do some think there has to be something "to do".
We do the same things that people in cities all over the country do for fun.

I swim, ski, skate, bowl, play ball, see a movie, go see a play, go see a band live, host a party or go to a party, read a great book, write, play card games or boardgames, watch TV, LOTRO or WOW or the like, photography, do something goofy to laugh at other people's reaction who laugh with you when they see it's in jest, shop, picnic in the park, sunbathe, golf, arts & crafts projects (not for me, blech, but perhaps for you), facebook (it's the devil - run away - lol), look up things of interest via computer or library, go swing on a swingset at the park - you never outgrow this! - it's fun!, manicure/pedicure, put new songs on your ipod or computer, watch animals in their natural habitat, sing at the top of my lungs, turn up the music & dance!...

I could keep going, but I'll stop. Honey, if you want to have fun, there is ALWAYS fun to be had. HA!

I would go to the river every day if my work schedule allowed it. Well, except days like today when it is oppressively hot.
I'm with Joy, if you can't find something to do here, then you must be looking at it all wrong.

What do you do anywhere? Eat, watch TV, read, go to a movie or a play, go out with friends, work, walk along the river (stream, creek, ocean), walk though the woods, have a picnic, watch your kids play ball, go to a revival, go shopping, clean the house, cut the grass, feed the dog, etc.

What do you WANT to do?
with no offense meant to Joy, or any of you , I think the question was what is there for YOUNG people to do ? I saw that question as pertaining to those under 21.

When I was in HS, I played in a band around the area. When we were not otherwise engaged, we would play at the youth center, or in the basement of one of the local restaurants , charge kids a quarter each to get in , and have a dance. I remember once a high school girl from Memphis commented to me on how much there was to do here (small town in the area) !. Nothing for them to do in Memphis !
I've thought about that statement a lot down through the years, and that does beg a question as to what is it for people under 21 to do ? Yea, they can go to the river, and if they are lucky enough for their folks to trust them in a boat even out on the river, but what is there for teens to do ? I got 2 pre-teen granddaughters, and I hope there is somewhere they will be able to go somewhere, and do things that will keep them out of trouble. I just don't know what that is.
Those under 21 can't do these? A dance is another great idea.

AtticFeline, I just thought of something. Do any of your friends have a truck? Put a couch in it. Take it to various place (the river, outside a grocery store, UNA, etc.) and y'all sit in it. After you stop giggling at the reaction, tell people that walk by that you are doing a survey & ask their reaction. Then you could come back here and tell us the results.
People under 21 are usually hanging out with friends at the mall till it closes. Or they are riding the strip.
Why do we always worry about entertaining our kids? Is it the techno environment that they have to have 24/7 stimulation? How many have video lan parties? Gone are the days of sitting back and being happy to just be alive. Corny, yes, but I'm old so it's allowed!

Sounds like some stuff I used to do. Ahhh, the memories.

have you guys seen my "hunting truck"??? hahahaha!
No, you don't sit on it until you get to where you are going. That would be even funnier, but no, please don't get arrested trying out my idea! HA!

Now, riding in the back of a truck while mudriding through hilly countryside after a rainstorm is not illegal, but in hindsight, I'm lucky to be alive...lol.

You should really stop exposing yourself like that, WH. I'm pretty sure that's illegal anyway. Wink

JK

I have to wonder if you really believe what you are saying...that you expose false people...due to some need to feel important or something...or if that's all part of the 'let's see how much I can irritate others' game you play on here.

Either way, you should start at the first thing on my list and don't stop until you are smiling, ridden of all that meanness. On second thought, forget that list and start reading in Matthew & keep going until God rids you of meanness. That's my advice, which you'll likely use to fill your trashcan. Whatever. Smiler
