I'm still trying to find work there. There's been jobs opening up slowly, but nothing that's a fit just yet. I am still waiting it out and as soon as I find something, I plan to move. Thanks for following up!

I would love some input from someone that may know about it or even live there. Thanx.

Savannah is not a bad area and better than most of the surrounding areas although you should be aware that meanfully paying jobs are VERY difficult if not nearly impossible to find. Pickwick seems to be where a LOT of folks are buying as it is probably the best and most civilized area in this region. As mentioned Meth, drugs, underage drinking, and minor children out past curfew are a problem.

The Hardin, Wayne, and Lawrence county area is an economically depressed area with Wayne county being the worst of the three. A big problem that contributes to the stubborn and entrenched problem of economic depression in this area is local government and police corruption, nepotism, and near hated of "outsiders", racism, and poor education. Just be mindful of what you may be committing yourself to.

I live in Wayne county and have seen more than a few Floridians and other new comers (again labeled "outsiders" by locals) move to this area and then a short time later sell out at a lose and leave because they were shocked and disappointed with the local culture which is HEAVILY steeped in drugs, alcohol, underage drinking, racism, nepotism, xemophobia, and flat out resentment of "outsiders moving here and buying up their land and homes".

On a positive note, this area is absolutely beautiful.......God's country. If you have a good retirement income or are independently wealthy and can find a large piece of land you can build a home and live in the middle of away from the inbred locals and are an independent and self sufficient short.......you may find you love it here. There are a few sane and neighborly folks who live here so come on in! Just be ready for the great metaphoric disappointment. This is NOT a good area to raise children, at least not without a LOT of parental involvment.

Also be mindful of the ratio of churches and real estate agents per person looking for your money. There are a LOT of places for sale at OUTRAGEOUSLY high prices that are NOT selling. Give it some time and you may be able to find a few bargains.

Good luck and go into this venture with your eye WIDE OPEN.

i would not move there, nor raise children there. the drug culture is strong, health services lacking technology and stubborn to catch up with the rest of the country. everyone does know everyone and that's the gospel truth. watch out on wed. nights.... downtown traffic in their very small town is horrendous. why? that's when the local newspaper comes out and everyone wants to know the gossip. who visited who over the weekend......i am not kidding. the truely horrible thing is that's the only way headed out of town if you're headed west. they stand in line and stand still in the turning lanes and then the driving lanes. it's the darnedest thing i've ever seen. don't go there. oh yeah, the paper mill is nauseatingly strong and with the frequent winds, it carries over counties...that's no joke either.
