Now that locals are somewhat of a minority, and that only a small percentage of locals are unfriendly to newcomers....it must be more difficult to keep out the transplants that it used to be. The era of rural serenity and ornery locals suspicious of strangers is long gone in any Metro Atlanta city or county.

I met my share of locals in Fayette who were not thrilled with all of the transplants. But even some of the transplants that lived there for a while, once they were established were not fond of the more recent newcomers moving in either.

Paulding County is like that too. Many people in my old high school expressed disdain at their county growing so fast. A few students said they missed the days when their county was more rural. To be honest, when I moved out there, I began to hate it after a year because I was so far from everything. For me it is still behind everything. I can't wait to leave this place.

You both said it, and I agree..."a few" or "some" locals complain about newcomers. It's that way in any rural-turned-suburban area - there are always a few, and they get fewer and fewer as the area grows and become more suburban and more a part of the city's metro area.
