    One word about this job: Barton.

    The only positive.

    I think Helena exists to give people in neighboring Clarksdale, Miss., something to look down on. A depressing shithole of a place.

    I was in Helena, Ark., for a John Edwards campaign stop about a year or so ago and it was one of the most depressing places I have ever been.
    I couldn't imagine what it would be like to live there.
     
  6. Helena was given all these promises on how the city would benefit from things such as the slackwater harbor and the casinos being placed in Tunica, Miss.
    Promises, however, are like pie crusts — easily made, easily broken.
    Not to mention this tidbit of advice: in 1990, Helena had almost 10,000 people and West Helena was above 11,000. The latest numbers have Helena around 5,800 and West Helena around 8,500 before being made one united (probably in name only) city.

    The Helena-WH football team has four or five DI recruits. They should be fun to watch this fall. Never been to the town.

    A shitty town combined with Gatehouse ownership? Stick a fork in yourself.

    I've been to a lot of poverty-stricken towns and Helena is definitely the most depressing.

  11. Helena-West Helena, with 15,000 residents at the edge of Arkansas' eastern rice fields and farmland, is in one of the nation's poorest regions, trailing even parts of Appalachia in its standard of living.

    Wow. This must be one heck of a place to live.

    Sentences like this are why I'd want to live there, just to see first-hand.
