Jobs a big draw

The Houston Chronicle is reporting; If it seems like half the people you meet are from California, you might be onto something. Census figures show more than 363,000 Californians moved to Texas over the past five years, helping the state to grow more than twice as fast as the nation as a whole since 2000.

They come for jobs and for a lower cost of living. Some are drawn by love. And although the transition can be rocky, many survive just fine.

Do wish these transplants looked at Tyler for a change...with the housing market luke-warm, we have an abundance of homes ready for everyone who wants a good city to live in. It would help all sectors of the Tyler economy, boost business start-ups, and add a larger tax base to encourage growth in city services. With our own home up for sale, it is frustrating to know that other areas of Texas are flourishing and we can't sell our beautiful home.
