Columbus county should ask the question, why would anybody want to move to Columbus county? There are no jobs. The crime rate and gang problems are getting out of hand. The place is full of rural ghettoes. Extreme poverity is the only thing that is abundant. The schools are not rated very well. The little town of Whiteville still has a city school system that drains badly needed school money from a county that is already dirt poor. The old agriculture system is as dead as all those folks who smoked that Columbus county tobacco. Finally, the whole thing is still run by a good ole boy network that has been passed down for generations. So, why would any person want to move to Columbus county? The only way that it will ever attract new people is to modernize and join the 21st century. Clean up the crooks and the drugs. Spread tax money equally in the county. Kick out everyone in any position of authority and start over (do not replace them with their family members). Take a gamble and offer businesses some hard cash to come to Columbus county. For some strange reason, I don't think billboards are going to do it. They should fire that genius first.
