The More I Learn The More I Dislike Coffeyville, KS

Yesterday afternoon I was checking out the local businesses of Coffeyville, since I work there and was really stunned to learn that their local tag office must charge a $1 fee with their customers in order to keep their doors open! I’ll be straight up honest, the town of Coffeyville, KS is really starting to piss me off. Why are we allowing our businesses to shame it’s customers into giving them extra money just to keep that business’s doors open? We need to be helping these businesses by showcasing events in this town, like Independence, KS does. We don’t need to be trying to trap people into visiting the town that’s for sure, but that’s another shocker of a post I’ll write more about later. Right now, I want to know why this town is going downhill so badly. I want to know why these businesses are struggling so badly and why people don’t want to live here. I want to know why this town isn’t benefiting as it has in the past that is now long and forgotten. So what’s up Coffeville, KS? Why is your town struggling so badly?

Join the Rock

Join now. That was what the music sign read in the hallway. She shook her head at flyer and wondered why she ever thought musicians like Ritchie Skaggs were spoiled rich beyond their wildest dreams. This was obviously not the case with the band's lead singer. Or if he was, there was certainly more to the man than riches and fame.

For one, it was obvious he loved music and wanted to share it with the world. She had even caught a glimpse of it in his eyes and the way he played his guitar on stage.

She shook her head again, certain she had gone stupid for thinking the way she just had about a man she knew nothing about. And didn't she hate heavy metal? Wasn't she just raving to her best friend about the noise?

You Will Stop in Coffeyville KS Whether You Want to or Not

As a writer, I usually don't mind visiting small towns because they are a great place to enjoy those little mom and pop places you just can't find anywhere else. However, it's downright wrong and devious when a small town like Coffeyville, KS lures people into stopping for their events like the State Fair and Rodeo by putting up road construction taking place signs to get unsuspecting victims to take notice!

At first when I saw these road construction signs right around the time the State Fair and Rodeo came to town, I thought they were just doing some real road construction. But, over the years it became obvious that this was not the case.

Every year right before Coffeyville's State Fair and Rodeo comes to town, up goes the road construction signs stating road construction and to slow down to 25 miles and hour rather than the normal 40. Really Coffeyville? How devious of you! If you want to get visitors to come to your events, show case that event, don't try to trap them into it! People will want to stop at your event if you give them something to talk about, something to be excited over. What they don't want is a fake road construction sign telling you to slow down, only to learn later there was no road construction after all. That my friends will just piss people off! Get smart and showcase your events! Build better websites and spread the word! Use social meida to your city's advatange! Get your act together and make Coffeyville at town people will be excited about visiting and not one people frown upon and refuse to vist ever again!


The loud audio equipment bursting with noise was not music to her ears, in fact, she hated it. She couldn't understand why her best friend had to drag her to this terrible noise she called heavy metal, in the first place. She could have been at home cleaning her house or shopping for groceries where it was safe. Here she was not. Here there were too many people shouting and screaming, trying to fight their way past the pathetic young hoodlums this town passed off as security guards that could care less if the singer on stage was mauled or not. They were in it for the money,nothing more.

She hated this town for that reason. They cared more about financing their personal pocketbooks than this town's existence. And she was rather surprised to even learn this noise pollution of a band had accepted the town's offer to play here.

Ritchie Skaggs and his band members were in for a hell of a shock if they thought for one single moment they'd be making big bucks off this town. A hell of a shock indeed.
