One of the marks of a snobby suburban refugee is how satisfied they are with Pocahontas County. Many came here because of the clean air, the well designed towns, low taxes, and freedom. They liked that. But once in a while you will run across one of those disgruntled refugees who moved her because it was such a nice place but now they want to change this place to be like the place they came from.
Our question: Why don't you go back there if it is so nice?
My town reporter overheard a conversation the other evening about some member of the town council wants to "require" everyone to keep their grass below 3 inches and charge $$$ for unoccupied dwellings. What's next zoning??
The town of Marlinton requires horses to have diapers on their butt! So far we haven't seen a single diaper on a horse. Good citizens just ignore stupid regulations.
If you come to our little county just remember why you came and determine that you are going to like where you are even if it isn't like up north.
All suburban refugees are welcome to our county. You came here because you chose to come here. I like that! I am here because I was born here. I happen to think that Pocahontas is a pretty nice place and I don't care how you did it up north.
You can't help that you aren't from here but we will ignore that misfortune and welcome you as a brother and a sister--with the exceptions of snobs.
A word of caution: Keep this crap up and I will start naming names--even bring my trusty video camera to your next meeting so that folks can see what its like to be a real live...
