Good point!

Welcome to Kentucky...and Northern Kentucky at that. With time, a good personality and an open mind, you'll come to enjoy what the area has to offer.

To me the difference btw Louisville & NKY is that L'ville has very close ties to South Central & Western KY (the most Southern parts of the state) while most people from NKY moved there from Ohio. I agree that the east side of L'ville is pretty similar to NKY, but there is nothing in NKY like Valley Station, Pleasure Ridge Park, or Okolona - those places are as Southern culturally as anywhere in the Atlanta or Birmingham metro areas.

Most people in NKY moved there from other parts of Kentucky, esp the SE part of the state. If anything, there are more people from Kentucky living in the West Chester, Lebanon, Kings Mills area of SW Ohio. Especially in Cincinnati's northern suburbs.

False, most of the growth in Boone County, KY is from Ohio people moving there. Why does it bother you so bad that Ohio people are moving South?

Also, if people from SE KY are moving anywhere it's to Lexington. They're really not moving to Northern KY. Check census facts and you'll see.

I ran some numbers on this a few months ago and this is true for SW Ohio, particulary the counties around Dayton. I did that because I was curious to see if the "briar population pipeline" was still flowing up here.

What I found was that Appalachian KY hasnt contributed much to the metro Dayton area in the recent past. Id figure this was the case for Cincy/NKY too.

actually maryland has beat you as the wealthiest state. We have the highest incomes and 7 of the richest out of 10 counties in the country with northern virginia having the other 3. Honestly not to judge u personally but nj and ny accents are like nails on a chalkboard. Maybe thats why other people hate you because you come in with your unfriendly money flaunting ways thinking your better than everyone else. read what you wrote and tell me if you'd wanna be associated with yourself!

the demographics of Northern Kentucky tells me that you can still be a good old rebel there. After all alot of transplants think of Kentucky in general as a southern place even though it was a border state. Jefferson Davis was born in Kentucky. Remember the infamous dispicable general order 11 that grant gave for Paducah. I don't think that any area of Kentucky can ever feel like a 'yankee' place. The true border is the Roebling Bridge.

I don't care much what happened in the Civil War, 150 years ago.

Your senator, Mitch McConnell, said in the U.S. Senate yesterday that the money paid back by Wall Street firms should go to the U.S. Treasury, and not to public works stimulus funds to help those unemployed.

Kentucky is one of the most impoverished states in the union. Why do you keep re-electing such right-wing jerks as McConnell?
