    Welcome !
    But why Palestine ?

    When I last visited Palestine about 10 years ago it was pop. 20,000.
    And had 22 lawyers, most kept busy with drug crimes.

    I was there often between 1964 and 2012.

    The handful of the senior doctors and lawyers pass around the major's job.

    Im sorry that was your experience.
    We have really enjoyed this little town. Great school district, the area is growing economically. Taxes are a little high, but they are putting them to good use. Crime rate is actually low among rural Texas towns.
    It may not make sense to you, but this is where God led us.
    Also, your description fits just about every single small town we drove through to get here from Sacramento. And the Urban areas are far worse.

    I had some great younger years in Palestine, but that was long before Walmart and the highway loop around town was completed. Which like everywhere else, killed the downtown businesses.

    I've had the pleasure of dealing with 5 of the lawyers, 2 of the doctors, one judge, and the police chief. One of the lawyers is part-time, mostly he does seminars on how to hold your hand/fingers to achieve inner peace. Anyway, some real characters there !

    The sheriff was first rate, went far beyond in helping me with some difficult issues with my relatives.

    My mother became pregnant with me in Palestine, so it is an important place to me.

    The must-do for you in the spring is Davy Dogwood Park.

    I drive past Davy Dogwood on the way to my friend Ralph's place, couldnt count the number of grass fires going up the hill to it that I have seen. I need to getup & see him this week.
