Where in the World can you go dancing in Ashland? Wikkies is now closed and so is Club Hypnotic. The only dancing most folks do in Ashland is "dancing" over to Ohio to party in Ironton (or Huntington WV).

I moved from Ohio to Ms. over 20 years ago and if its like it is here, it will take you about ten years to be accepted into the community as one of theirs. I know that won't happen there unless they have drastically changed. Most all of me kin folk live in eastern Ky. around Olive Hill. If I had the chance to do it over, I would have settled there. I still love that area, its peaceful and to me there is no place like it. I am a retired truck driver so I have seen just about every corner of the united states.

Olive Hill used to be that way! Sadly it is not so much anymore. My wife is from Olive Hill and we go back often. now we hear more about the pills and pillheads more than anything. yes it is really that bad. Not much to do in that area and so many people are going to florida and bringing back hundreds of pills, there are addicts everywhere now.

I am not an Olive Hill hater, I like going back and visiting my wife's family, but the situation there is sad.

Seriously? Ashland v. PRP, or anywhere else for that matter? Take PRP. Ashland would be a horrible choice. Just another dumpy river town that thinks it's special, when in fact it is a joke. Sewers overflow during heavy rains and RAW SEWAGE runs down the streets regularly. The entire town is decaying, physically, morally, and economically. The city manager is an incompetent clown, and he's not even likable. Just fat and stupid, like most Ashlanders.

If there was ever a town that needed mercy killing, Ashland is it. Their motto is "A proud past, a bright future". I think a more appropriate motto would be "We need an enema".
