Deaths out-number births as population slides

I'm beginning to think that you don't know what you are talking about.

Red tape, this and that. Not very specific... Any competent entrepreneur knows that there are costs and code compliance issues associated with opening a business. .

What does this mean??

"Every time a development talks about Warren you get OK wonderful glad to have the business. Then you get, but you have to do this, that, that, and these things."

Look at the US Census data. This is a twenty year trend in this county. Timber, natural gas, oil and steel are dying industries and so goes the population unless new technology industries move in. A small college probably won't help. It's not like Bradford, Titusville, and Meadville are booming from the colleges there. I don't know what the solution is for Warren County except to say that looking to bring back the past has not proven to be a successful strategy. Four high schools is a perfect example. What we need is to import some entrepreneurship, but alas, Warren County folks aren't too friendly to newcomers competing with our existing business aristocracy.

Here's my take away.

Less kids being born to fill all those schools and even more people dying that used to pay taxes for those schools.

Sure seem like a real good thing we fought so hard to keep 4 high schools open in this dwindling county.

P.S. That last sentence was meant as sarcasm.

TJR, you must be ecstatic over the news that at this rate, the county could be less than half its size in less than 40 years. Could you please turn off the light at the end of the tunnel before you leave?

Hey rural America -- Let's keep electing Republicans with the same old stale ideas. After all, they've served us well. Some cities, Los Angeles and NYC for example have found out that real two party systems result in competition and require leaders to think a bit. But, hey Scarnati, Rapp, Thompson etc have led us to the promised land.

As far TJR. Nice coded racial statement. You might want to check the lines at the local Board of Assistance office. Morality, handouts, and growth in social services isn't just an inner city phenomenon.

You finally figured this out warren? Our kids get out of school and move away to find work. No young people, no births. Old people don't have kids! Bring in the jobs, good jobs so our kids can actually make a living and this will reverse! Stop making it so hard for good paying businesses to come to warren! It is probably to late now that most of our major employers have jumped ship! Making the town pretty doesn't create jobs except for all the out of town company's you hires to do the work! Wake up warren or we WILL become a ghost town. At least that may draw some tourists !

Why does the decrease in population call for a title saying the county is Dying? I'd personally rather see a small decline in population than growth.... growth means more trees cut, more polution, more traffic, less of the country atmosphere Warren is good for. What I worry about is the GROWTH in inner cities and the continued decline of morality and increased growth for social services and government hand outs there.
