You forgot to mention the Meth labs and high crime.

We have a little bit of everything, including heaven if you are a nature lover. If you don't like what you see in one direction, turn around and look the other way. There is bound to be something there you will enjoy. The people, in general, are some of the nicest you could meet anywhere. We are friendly, patriotic, and always ready to help a neighbor in need. The big cities have the same problems as any other in this nation. The good news is...you don't have to live there!

I have enjoyed reading the posts here and wanted to jump in with my 2 cents many times. Now that I'm a memeber.....!!

The law change making efedrin harder to buy has really reduced the amount of meth production in Missouri. I rarely hear about labs being busted anymore. As for high crime, what are you talking about? According to the FBI stats, Springfield is at the national average for property crimes and below the national average for violent crimes.

Watch out for Louisiana, Florida, and New Mexico!

The more I read here about Missouri the more it seams it has not changed from when I was a kid spending the summers on my grandparent’s farm. This is also the reason I am chomping at the bit to get out of here and move to Missouri with the family. If nothing other the fact that Missouri people seam to be a welcoming group not a stay away you folks are wrecking Missouri for the rest of us is nice to read. I also get the idea that most new comers and old timers seam to have the same ideas of what life is and should be and what makes a home a home and a neighbor a neighbor and how to be a good one to boot . Missouri my soon to be home

Be aware, there is definitely a contingent of people who believe that the coasters moving to the area are not a positive thing. Folks from the coasts don't seem to go out of their way to be neighborly. Especially in the rural areas, neighbors here are expected to willingly make personal sacrifice for the benefit of others. That might mean giving an easement without cost for a road or power line. It might mean helping him fix his fence.

I've heard several people comment that the "Californians" (read: any transplant) aren't very good neighbors. They're probably mostly mad that the rude SOB up the road never waves when he drives by.
