I am a retired Registered Nurse, in nursing home due to multiple sclerosis. I came to Gainesboro where I GREW UP when I became unable to feel comfortable at home due to mobility problems, specifically being unable to transfer safely to my motorized scooter without assistance. I made the decision myself and made the necessary arrangements myself and ""CAME HOME"" to Jackson County. I worked 3 years as Night Supervisor in a general hospital in my scooter before my retirement. I have had an account at Jackson Bank and Trust, then known as Jackson County Bank, since I was a CHILD. Yesterday I sent the designated shopper for us here to the bank to cash a personalized check for me to get $15 cash so I could pay back some of the caring workers who bought me soft drinks out of the machine - due to the market not having Mello Yello I sent for. My balance was $1231.98 and I DO NOT FEEL GOOD about putting my money where I can't get a few dollars promptly when I want it!! If they doubted the identity of the person and/or intentions, they could phone the nursing home, (or even maybe yell out the door, it is just down the street!).
Pros: I thought location assured personalized small town service as always! Some of the REAL employees still there, some gone.
Cons: Changing times and attitudes!!
