Joplin might still be a few decades away from ghost town, but it is not going to recover to pre-tornado status either.
with all due respect I don't know what kind of agenda you have now in regards to Joplin But it is pretty evident you have no clue what your talking about.

I coulkd honestly care less about your concerns now.edit on 4-6-2011 by Xcathdra because: (no reason given)
Missouri Disaster Recovery Jobs Program
Workers who are unable to work due to the tornado that struck Joplin on May 22 can apply for temporary jobs to restore Joplin. The jobs will focus on clean-up and humanitarian efforts, such as clearing and removing debris. Under the Missouri Disaster Recovery Jobs Program, the first priority will be to employ workers who lost their job because of the tornado. Second priority will go to workers who are unemployed for other reasons. Job and safety training and equipment will be provided for each worker, in addition to vaccinations or other preventive medical procedures necessary to work in the disaster area.
What vaccines do I need before going back into the disaster area?
Clean-up and repair activities during and after a disaster present a greater risk of injuries that can lead to serious infection. One of the most serious infections is tetanus, also known as “Lock Jaw,” which can be deadly. Tetanus infection is preventable by vaccination.
You should get a booster dose of tetanus-diphtheria (Td) vaccine if you have not had a dose within the past 10 years.
You should also get a Td booster if you are unsure of the last time you received a Td shot.
Anyone who receives a deep cut or puncture wound during reentry and clean-up activities should seek immediate medical attention and ask about a Td booster.
Children and youth 11-18 years should receive the new pertussis-containing Tdap vaccine, rather than Td, if available.
For more information on immunizations, contact your health care provider or your local public health agency. You can also contact the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services, Bureau of Immunization Assessment and Assurance at 573-526-0238 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What if I do not have my original vaccination records?
Consult your health care provider or your local public health agency. Health care providers should follow CDC’s September 2005 recommendations for persons who do not have their immunization records.
Children aged 10 years and younger should be treated as if they were up-to-date for their age and given any doses recommended for their current age and not received in the interim. This applies to all children except when they are not up-to-date on his/her immunizations.
Children and youth aged 11-18 years should receive recommended vaccines (Tdap, MCV, and influenza if indicated) if not already received.
Adults should receive Tdap, PPV, and influenza vaccines (if indicated).
In addition, any displaced person living in a crowded group setting should receive influenza, varicella, and MMR vaccines. However, anyone in this situation who has a weakened immune system (e.g., cancer or dialysis patient) should not receive the live virus vaccines MMR and varicella.
Also his Info about the demographics for Joplin is completely wrong as i showed with the 2000 census data. I'm still looking for the 2010 data but I'm pretty sure it will also prove him wrong.

While Missouri might be number 1 on the list of states with a meth problem there are actually other counties in Missouri where the Meth problem is worse than it is in Jasper county.
Chief Roberts says Jasper County has been ranked the number one meth producing county in Missouri for the past 10 years. That is a statistic he plans on bringing down because of the danger meth labs pose to public safety.
The Patrol says Missouri had 1,980 “incidents’ in 2010. Tennessee finished second with 1,197. Kentucky had the third worst record, 1,045 busts.
Jefferson County had 228 meth lab seizures. Franklin County had 106 and Washington County had 103. In Southwest Missouri, Jasper County has 93 and Greene County had 79.

Are your opinions bought and paid for, or do you have a real investment in that community? I have to say, that if you are being paid, then they are throwing away their money, because you are not very good at this. If your opinions are your own, then you need to get out and get some better information!
