Williston has gone from 22,000 in 2010.... to apx 30-35,000 NOW.  Thanks to the Baaken Oil Boom for this rediculous explosion and creating choas in a 500 mile radius.

My Late Dad lived in Rushville, IN. about 6,000 People.
It once was a busy town, but, not days it's different. there are types that have move in from i.e. Indianapolis burbs, Cincinnati burbs, Louisville burbs. Detroit burbs. and so on.

So, what is happen is that once we get better Transit, small towns will be burbs,  after all, they life style is different. a-little more room in your yard and house, trees. knowing your neighbors. not always necessary true.

As fair as the Illegals. instead of whining about it. do something about it. what is the point whining about it when one does not take your complaints to your State Capitol.

These are NOT small towns. x.x These are what I consider "cities". Try living in a town of 619 or 343!

I live close to the villages, and I love it out here....its not for everyone but if you like caving, swimming in natural springs, camping, kayaking down rivers and seeing gators bigger than your boat, then ocala is the spot.

Here is a cave I was in on the 18th of feb.

Really 15,000 and up residents is called "small towns???? Give me a town with 400 residents if that and im happy! Having to drive a piece to work is well worth not having to deal with what they call small towns!

The City of Rio Rancho, New Mexico was not mentioned? How come. We are the fastest growing city in New Mexico.

Talk about LOL
There seems to be only a few of you readers who recognize this not very cleverly put  together advertisement for what it is.  So use it to pitch your view or product, or call your local real estate agent, car salesman, moving company, banker, mortgage company... etc. since they paid for this commercial, they expect to hear from you and will be disappointed if they don't. 
This is just a really jazzed up SCAM!

It's great that some of these 'small' (medium) sized communities are growing.  It is evident that a large portion of this growth is due to hourly wage jobs that do not have any sort of benefits or retirement.

Worked in the villages for over 12 years and lived about 10 minutes away from it and trust me, this is one place you do not want to reside. The residents are rude and idiotic at times. They drive their golf carts while intoxicated. And their driving on the roads is a hazardous to everyone. I always make the medical analogy of the main roads which lead you to the villages as arteries and the villages as a clot. A major pain in the a#$! And to top it off you have all degenerates (snow birds included) from different states migrating there and think everyone should treat them like kings and queens. Then they make comparisons between their home state and Florida and of course say crap like-"well back in Rhode Island we get everything for free and we do not have to wait". Or some stupid comment like that. Take it from me, find another area, you will thank me for this. Eventually land is going to run out and no more losers will be able to live or move there. It's one thing surrounding natives of the state is looking forward to. Damn I need to see my therapist again. Have a good day!

Gosh, they didn't even mention Olive Branch, Mississippi - listed in 2011 as THE fastest growing town in the entire US!

Why get mad at Mexicans coming here for a better life? If you want to get mad, get mad at the bought and paid for politicians who do absolutely nothing to secure the border. The corporate interests ( johns) who bought the (pimps-Congress/Sena​te) to make (us-whores legal citizens)

have to deal with the negative ramifications of rampant illegal immigration. The positive aspects of this translates to cheap labor for the greedy corporate interests and easy votes for the lying politicians. Both parties blab about this "comprehensive immigration reform" crap and not one of their members has defined what it means and a really positive step to curtailing illegals is to SEVERELY punish those who hire them. But we all know, or should know that this will not happen and the TRUE reason for the illegal immigration is that the situation is the way it is because the people in power WANT IT THAT WAY, even though they lie to you EVERY DAY!

Conyers Georgia used to be a quiet farming town but not anymore.  Its part of Atlanta Ga now crime, pollution and all.
Feb 9, 2012 11:53AM

how did this go from small towns to immigration?  Being raised in Arizona and seeing the horrifying growth, pollution which was not here 20 years ago, the crime rate sky rocket and crowded stinky freeways, crowded home developments and then mowing dow every bit of the beautiful desert to build more developments that sit empty or are foreclosed is very sad, Arizona used to be a beautiful state but now overcrowded, and dirty like LA.....................

To start with..... these aren't small towns. The town I live in is about 1000. That's a small town. When you live in a small town like mine, you don't have to lock your car doors at night.  If it weren't for the news, we wouldn't know what a drive by shooting is.  It may cost a little more to live here ( I don't think so ), but I believe it is a very good trade off for my family and friends to be and feel safer .

Give it a few years and I bet most of these area's will be the 8 largest goast towns. Since people didn't learn there leasons the first time about growing towns. Just ask anyone who lived in Vegas in the 1990's

I read everything that everyone post on this site. It sound more like you all have a problem with ethnic back round confidence. My parents where immigrants and that's how this country was built. How ever when they came to this country the population wasn't what it is today. Latinos, mexican Guatemalan, what's the difference everyone comes to this country learns our trades that we teach them and then they do it better, you do it cheaper more like it. I am in the construction business for 25 years and i have seen the wave plenty of time and this time around there are no jobs and the people who suffer are the americans because we pay for it what ever back round where from.

One thing Hispanics are good at is business. I know two housekeepers making over $10k a month and my grandmother (who can’t speak a word of English) owns four apartment buildings with a total of 78 units.

LOL...helps to be "sucessful" when you earn your money under the table then apply for tax credits using stolen social securty numbers - all the while receiving government assistance and free medical care at the taxpayer's expense. Yea, you're good at "business" alright....

How about mentioning Palm  Coast, Florida. It's halfway between Daytona Beach and St Augustine. Half hour's drive to either.

Uncrowded beaches, pet friendly, and beautiful, new 3/2/2/  homes for $100,000. Salt water

canal front from $225,000.

LOL!! I know three Hispanic men who "jumped the border" and are now self-made millionaires legally. Two started very successful construction companies who cater to the élite in Los Angeles and the other is a designer. One thing Hispanics are good at is business. I know two housekeepers making over $10k a month and my grandmother (who can’t speak a word of English) owns four apartment buildings with a total of 78 units.  Speaking of jumping the boarder is that not how our forefathers got here. Do you think they were invited? Did America not take Hawaii away?? This is exactly why American's can't hold jobs or get them in the first place. They want to be over paid and underworked. I saw in the news that now breastfeeding mother's need "nursing stations" at work. I'm a mother too, but ****!! Now I have to supply a place for my breastfeeding mothers to nurse their kids?? Let's see if there will be less work for these women and watch them complain then. Americans want to get paid good wages, but still work 9-5, weekends off, paid sick leave, paid holidays, etc. There are only two options for that outcome. Complete your education and earn your value in society or become an entrepreneur and be your own boss, but don't expect others to pay for your lifestyle.
