and I hope you can find your happiness in a large city. I just wish this one would stay small. I hate big city life. To each their own.

Hmm...There are A LOT of activities in and around Kingsport. Art, the symphony, Bay's Mountain, movie theaters, many parks like Warriors Path and The Green Belt, the new YMCA is being built, there are events going on about every weekend, (most of them free) a great library. I grew up in a small town, Kingsport is not a small town, 60k population is not that small. Sure it is not N.Y. or Atlanta, but there is A LOT to do for it's size.

People are employed by more companies than Eastman, sure it is the biggest, but there are other occupations around. True, right now very few are hiring, but there are other employers in the area.
