JMT, looking at the pics you posted I have to ask, based on what I have noticed, a few good pics can make an entire town seem picturesque. I mean, go look at the pics posted under Hemet, CA on this site. You see the pics and say to yourself, 'aww, what a pretty quaint town.' Well, thats faaaaaaaaarrr from the truth! I live in Hemet. The ground is brown, and full of gangs and drugs and crime, etc, etc. So I guess my question is, is it the same with Cookeville? There are a few pretty pics, but is the rest of the town ugly? run down? etc, etc? Are the cheaper apartments slumvilles? that kind of stuff.

No, there are no slums in Cookeville, no crack neighborhoods, no gangs. Sure there are some neighborhoods that are more run-down than others, but nothing like you described.

Next time I'm in Cookeville I'll take pictures of the less-desirable parts of town.

I think you need to see a therapist. Comcast in any area is not worth the money. I avoid them at all cost.

No, I don't need to see a therapist. I've lived in Knoxville for 5 years in 3 different locations. I've had nothing but excellent service from Comcast from the very first day. But thanks for your concern.

Hi JMT.
Great pics.
You must be in Cookeville but your forum info says Knoxville. I know you said you lived there for 5 years. Have you just moved to Cookeville? I love it there but in the last year or two the traffic has gotten a bit more hectic than I like.

We live at the edge of Putnam/Jackson Line on hwy 56. I wish I took good pics to post. But frankly I take horrible pics. It's beautiful here. Not far from the Kentucky border and the traffic isn't like the bigger city. Property prices are more affordable. Taxes are remarkably lower.

There's a lot of places I love about Tennessee. I think Jackson County, Putnam and then White County are my favorites.

Hello!

JWT has done a great job of illustrating the area. I live in Cookeville (and I have for almost 12 years) and he's even shown me things I've never seen before!

If anyone has any questions about Cookeville, feel free to ask. I'm a high-school senior - so questions about things to do for teenagers in town would be your best bet.

I live in Knoxville but love Cookeville. I think it's one of the nicest towns in Tennessee. If you're at CHS, you're at one of the best high schools in the state. Are you in the International Baccalaureate Program?

I just wish Cookeville had a Target...

Yeah, I have four IB classes this year and had four last year. I'm not doing the diploma program (Spanish is the only IB foreign language CHS offers and it's just not my thing), though.

And a Target _would_ be pretty fantastic.
