Did you see the article about Forsyth County.
Here are some interesting quotes from the article.
Forsyth County, the land of million-dollar lake homes and rolling farm pastures transformed into McMansion-filled subdivisions, has laid claim to another distinction during the economic downturn.
The number of county residents using food stamps is still relatively small, only about 3 percent of its population. In Fulton County, 14 percent of the population gets food stamps. In DeKalb, the figure is 13 percent. It’s 8 percent in Gwinnett and 7 percent in Cobb.
Just a year ago, the U.S. Census’ American Community Survey reported that Forsyth had the highest median household income of any county in Georgia — about $88,600. The New York Times, meanwhile, recently published a story that indicated Forsyth had the 13th-largest increase (on a percentage basis) in the nation since 2007 of residents receiving food stamps.
Cumming City Manager Gerald Blackburn said that just a few years back, the county had an unemployment rate of about 3 percent. The jobless rate had climbed to 8.7 percent in October, with 7,081 people unemployed.
The state rate is 10.2 percent.
God has blessed us greatly and when our people look at how bad they have it this puts it in perspective. Actually this county is still far better off than the surrounding counties.
My challenge to all of you is to Seek first the kingdom of God and let Him add to you as He sees fit!
