By welfare assistance, this is NOT limited to recieving cash assistance. This includes medical cards, food stamps, day care assistance, everything that is offered.
Either way all we are arguing is opinion. You love it here, hey that's great for you. I prefer a more urban setting where there is culture and class as opposed to good ole boy mentality that shuns newcomers and makes them feel as if they are "outsiders"
You are so right. I was born here and am still shunned because my parents moved in from out-of-state. These people like to "speculate" about the "outsiders" and will have something negative to say behind your back at every opportunity. If you're really lucky they will eventually label you as an "undesirable" and leave you alone. I'm so thankful I have the ability to travel extensively, go to a museum or catch a play, exchange ideals and meet people from different places. Then I like to come home, put on my old clothes, and have my neighbors "speculate" about me.

From my own position, I would say that if you were to move to the area, I would suggest the northern graves county district. This is a nice area where everyone is neighbors and would help anyone out tin anyway they could. Another plus to being in the Northern part of Graves County is that it would put you closer to the Paducah area. There is actually a wonderful Christian College in this area, plus the other two refered to by others (Murray and Paducah). As far as the High School goes, it really is a good school. I have two children there myself. Yes,there are drugs there, it is sad that they are everywhere you go these days. I feel that as long as you are educating your kids and they have a level head on their shoulders, they will be fine. As far as jobs go, that is a huge set back like many others have said. I happen to work in Mayfield, but it's just a modest pay to be honest. There are good jobs near by, if you have the right experience, education, or know the right people.
Good luck! I hope you are able to make the right decision for your family :)

LOL! I got a "mean" icon! Like I said "negative" marks for expressing my opinion.

Regardless of what race is selling X-drug or doing which crime, the fact is that Mayfield itself is showing the first stages of urban decay. City officials are letting sidewalks, streets and older buildings crumble. The money is in subdivision expansion for the upper class, not in maintaining a decent city for a primarily lower-middle class population.

It's not about race any more, it's about class. We might be different colors, but we're all on the same boat up s**t creek. So enough with the race BS.

You'd be better off moving 20 or 30 minutes further, to Marshall County. It's one of the best high schools in western KY, surprisingly. Also, nothing too bad goes on here. There are drugs and such and in Hardin there have been a lot of thieves lately..but just in Hardin mostly. Mayfield is not a good place for a family. Specially teenagers who can get involved in all the drugs and violence that is going on there. The schools in Mayfield are also terrible, at least Marshall county has decent rules and don't allow teens to be idiots. Just my opinion though. I know it probably isn't what you were looking for, but thought I'd throw it out there. Have a nice night.
The name on this post is MCHS obviously tells us that they are a Marshall County person...I grew up in Marshall County but have been in Mayfield for several years. Kids attended Mayfield High School. Graves County schools are excellent schools. Mayfield has it problems but please recognize that the few on here who wants to knock and the environment don't appreciate what they have. Come on you will find a good town to live in.

My advice to you is....DON'T MOVE TO MAYFIELD.! PEOPLE ARE MOVING OUT, MORE AND MORE AND REVENUE IS DROPPING.

I been in mayfield my whole life. It used to be safe but it definitely isnt now thats for sure but if you dont put yourself in bad situations then you may have a chance. I am definitely not saying anyone deserved being hurt here but it happens regardless of where you live. just stay away from the nonsense and you will be fine.

from someone that isn't from here don't come here. There is a very large meth problem here. there have been multiple shootings here recently here. if you are not from here it is hard to find a job here. i was informed due to the first 3 digets of my ss# that i would have a hard time finding a job. i did not know untul then the first 3 digets tell you were you were born. the school systems are aahh. i had a teacher write and tell me my child ruined her makers. i told her when she can spell markers i would punish my child. the court system and police are corupt. all about the money and who you know. they would rather put someone that got busted manufacturing meth out on the street with a wire then take care of the problem. many people that should be in jail for crimes are out as informants for the police. if you can find someone else that would be the best thing. theres just nothing here and what is theres nothing good about it.

What! Have you lost your mind? Not the best decision to make, I lived there once upon a time. Glad i moved, but if you insist on living there somewhere out in the county area maybe a little safer also you might want to invest in some fire powe.
