Leaving Alpaugh 


Mark Crosse/The Fresno Bee Posted by Hello

An engrossing, albeit lengthy, article about how a reverse migration of Dust Bowl era descendants from a poor San Joaquin Valley farm town, out of California and back to Arkansas has been accelerating the past few years. This time, not dust storms but methamphetamine is the force driving people to leave.

I live in Alpaugh and all you had was bad parts. I've lived here for 8yrs. I am 18 yrs old, im going to college and im not pregnant. Im not on drugs, oh and i dont drink. If you did a article on the bad part of Fresno it would most likely be worse.
