    Charlevoix is really Hicksville. The one paper in town is not available on line, so I called them and asked them if they have written any stories on the Ramseys since they moved back to town. "The Ramseys moved back to town? They asked. " When?" Gee, the hometown paper isn't very aware. There are only 3,000 people there too.

    Thanks, Candy. Could whoever you spoke to at the paper have been pulling your leg about not knowing the Ramseys moved back? Maybe the townspeople don't like the glare of the spotlight.

    Hi Candy,

    Try the Traverse City Record Eagle. I'm sorry I don't know how

    to link it for you.

    www.record-eagle.com

    It's our largest daily paper. I have never heard Charlevoix

    described as "Hicksville". Multi-million $$$ homes built on

    million $$$ lots. Now, my little town is most definitely "Hicksville"!!

    A couple of weeks after JonBenet was murdered I was in

    Charlevoix and drove by the Rameys house. I remember a little

    swing in the backyard...very sad.

    Hi Jaydid,

    What do people there think of the crime? Do you ever hear talk about it?

    Hi. Nehemiah,

    I live about an hour away from Charlevoix. I just remember it

    being on our local news because of their house in Charlevoix.

    Thats how I knew what their house looked like.

    So you never heard the locals discussing their thoughts/beliefs about the Rs?

    Don't worry about the newspaper. My town has a population of 3,200 and we don't even have a paper! LOL :dontknow:

    "B" says the people in Charlevoix are very protective of the Ramseys---I don't see that changing. Maybe it's those good ol' midwestern values. The population swells to tens of thousands in summertime.

    That's what I would have guessed, Makai. Small towns don't usually like others snooping around. It's okay for them to snoop, just don't let someone else do it. LOL

    So true; I can picture this w/ Charlevoix. Have never been there but once lived in a different little resort town. Locals can and do hiss at one another but can be quite a united front against 'outsiders.'

    Doesn't bother me. Kinda warms my cockles
