    I lived in Rocky Mount from 1972 through the late 1980s. I moved back to Raleigh where I was born and will never go back to Rocky Mount. I know Raleigh has a high crime rate but it is just a different type of person. There is just nothing going on there to help commerce.

    Good ole' Rocky Mount- remember that slogan from the '80's -"City on the Rise"? The only thing rising in Rocky Mount now is the crime rate and unemployment
