We can make lists on how to improve local economies and more importantly, have things that young children can have positive things to do. Instead of being bored, getting in trouble for boredom and growing up into lives of crime. But... as you are well aware of, it takes money and "well known" in communities and cities to get things done and possibly sway elections to do so.

Take care up there!
It also takes proper education on why these communities are this way, but that turns political too quickly and people are sensitive about their political ideology.

Thank you!

rent here is not extremely high like many places. there will always be people struggling to get by anywhere but the prices in Louisiana havent become astronomical yet and rent and real estate is still a reachable goal. You can still rent here for 400-600$ and thats reasonable to live. you cant do that in many other places in the country unless it is extremely depressed economy. I lived with a friend and split rent when i was starting out and slowly built up savings. had to live in a shoebox apartment and then a small bedroom of an old 60s era home but I made it work for years until I could afford a small house.
I would say if theres any chance for americans to actually afford homes or rent, Louisiana is a good place to look.

We have lived in LA (NO Northshore)for 35 years and travelled to many places in the U.S. I have to say it has been a great place to live and raise a family. The culture, food, friendly people, etc... There are a lot worse places to live.

It's so much more vividly backwards when you move to a better state like CO. There's still corruption and waste here but it's much less. The corporate welfare we hand out is absolutely ridiculous. We pay them to poison our us and our children.

We visit Beaver Creek every year for 1-2 weeks. I really like CO, but it's not the south. We seriously considered retiring there, but decided against it.
