Maybe you should take a look

Maybe you should take a look at who it is that is leaving. I'm quite sure that it is the young population, like myself. I grew tired of having nothing better to do than to hang out in the Walmart parking lot on Saturday nights, bc the town has nothing better to offer. So maybe Columbus County might need to focus more on it's younger population, since they are its only possibility in the future. And I used the refer the county's pop. as "our," but it's now "it's" for a reason. The county lost me long ago, before I even left. And, i know so many others who feel the same way. So if Col. Co. would focus on finding ways to keep her young people there, then she would thrive, but it looks like that ain't gonna happen.
