This Is Not Good News For Hickman County

Just about everyone in Tennessee knows that Hickman County has been hit hard the past few years with high unemployment and low- paying jobs and has not recovered yet. According to, these high unemployment rates and low-paying jobs have taken a toll on the citizens of Hickman County. Hickman County has the third-highest foreclosure rate in the state of Tennessee. One out of every 359 houses received a foreclosure filing in May - twice the state average.

I don't want this blog to become a negative thing - although you need to hear the bad news with the good news. But, I believe that the people of Hickman County need to "sell" the idea that Hickman County is a great place to live and do business. I know that during this recession, it has been hard to attract new industry and business, but I don't think that much of an effort has been made.
