If your not from Lufkin...quit saying it.
If you are from Lufkin ...quit going along with it...

If you compare it to Houston, Dallas , or San Antonio...
yeah, I guess it is slower...and the population is smaller...
but to pin the phrase "country" on Lufkin is ridiculous.

I grew up in Lufkin...and have since traveled pretty much the
whole country. And believe me...Lufkin is NOT country.
Philadelphia, Miss is country...Escambia, Fl. is country...
Churchland, Va. is country...Elizabeth City, N.C. is country...
Conyers, Ga. is country....
but not Lufkin...

It is a stigma that I see being attached to Lufkin more and more...
I used to spend summers with my Grandmother in San Augustine and
Broud-***....now that is COUNTRY...any place where you have to go "catch"
your supper....is country.

If you have a STARBUCKS within 15 miles of your town....YOU ARE NOT COUNTRY...give it up. You might think it sounds cool to tell all of these other high schools..."the country boys this ...and down here in the country that"
You are not Alto....your not Groveton...your not even Huntington.....You are Lufkin and you ARE NOT COUNTRY.

I dont know man. I lived in Lufkin for a couple of years. It has kind of a tweener mode to it. Certain parts have a country flavor than certain parts have a bigtown feel.

The town that isnt country anymore is Tyler. Tyler is a dang Metropolis now.

No, just didn't see that one coming.

However, I currently live near a big city and was born in the mountains of western North Carolina where it's not uncommon to see a wood shack on the side of a winding road with someone selling boiled peanuts and peanut brittle. Also, you'll find the selection of NASCAR flags prevalent at these establishments as well. If you're from those parts, you've got to have the #3 flag with the halo around the 3 and then the smaller #8 below it with wings out to the side of the number.

I believe I have a pretty good idea of what country vs. city looks like based on personal experience, and from my many trips up 59 I'd definitely classify Lufkin as being country...just modernized. I don't see what the negative is as far as Lufkin being considered country even if it does have more than one or two stop lights in the city limits. http://www.5atexasfootball.com/goldgrill2.jpg

I was in Lufkin this week and I don't really consider it country even though there's a HUGE junk dealer just north of town on 59. That dude bought a casket one time that still had a body in it. He buys old buses and motorhomes just to store more junk.

It's a modern small town, but that's a common theme in America now. You once had to have over 50,000 people to get the good businesses of the big cities, but corporate America learned from Wal-Mart. You're now getting bigger businesses in the 10,000 towns and sometimes under that.

Look at Marble Falls. They have around 4,000 people, but have a Chili's and a Home Depot. I see they're building a Home Depot in Bastrop, too. I saw a new Chili's in Jacksonville last week. Palestine has most of the businesses you look for. What's a shame is that I see some towns around the state that are going in reverse. They look like terrible places to live and don't have nearly enough businesses for their size.

I hadn't been to Mt. Pleasant in 2 years, but I see they have a new Lowe's, some new hotels, and a new driving range. Overall, it's a pretty good place to live for 14,000 people. When I was in high school, you always had to go to Texarkana or Longview to eat at a fun place.

The only thing missing from the towns I listed are the hot nightlife places. You have to be in a big city for that. I don't care about that stuff, so I'm cool with Lufkin. They have more than enough places to eat and buy stuff for your home. The only thing missing from Lufkin is a good football team! :p

Not sure what set you off dude but look at it this way. Whether you are urban or rural, Lufkin kicks plenty of booty when it comes to football. We Texans like to think we play superior football to the other states (and we are right IMHO). Since Lufkin is one of the best teams in Texas, one could say that they play some of the best football in the "country". :cool:

I dont think he ever said anything in reference to a Confederate flag or southern pride, he was just pointing out what country is. Also tell a nascar driver that what they do is not a sport and they will be the ones laughing at you, get in a race car and face the G-Forces they go through and it is like hell on wheels. These guys have to be in great shape to endure the 500 miles they go through a day sweating and all else. Also I would love to see you tell some of those so called "Bubbas" off, you do and you will be waking up in a hospital room not knowing what hit ya. By the way, what does it matter if people consider Lufkin country, it is in one of the greatest regions of Texas, the piney woods and plays some outstanding football.

Lufkin is definitely country...

If a place can't be somewhat of a metropolis themselves and they are that far from a city, then they are country...they obviously can't be suburbs...


I was in Houston last week and drove home to NY on 59....I wouldn't be able to live in Lufkin because of my taste, and the reason is because it's too "out in the country" for me.


Most of Texas is country, most of the states on the way to NY is country, and everything in between is too.


I've decided after being all over the country over the past couple months that our country is EXTREMELY country.

We live in cities only. Nowhere else. It's amazing.

When you think of our country as so big and fairly populated, and such a power of all sorts, you expect the population to be spread out more...it's not.

To conclude....Lufkin is country.

That is precisely what my therapist tells me.
Look my only point, was that I keep hearing that
label being put on Lufkin and it is annoying. I grew up
in Lufkin and remember a lot of people that hated that
stereotype. We hated the fact that Lufkin was so sloooow
and behind on virtually everything. And now I hear that word
all the time in reference to our football team. I assure you there
are very few (if any) real country boys on the team. The real country
boys around Lufkin go to schools that don't even have football teams.

As far as telling the "Bubbas" of the world that Nascar is not a sport...
I've done it on more than one occasion and have yet to wake up in the
hospital. They just get pissed and go on and on about "By God Dale Jr. and
he's an ath-a-lete" and I laugh and that's it.

For the record my Dad's name is Bubba. And he's about as country as
Jackie Chan at a Garth Brooks concert.

and it was'nt really a field it was just our front yard.
Come to think of it...I don't think I know 1 single
person within the city limits that even has a field to plow.

south side of Leander is suburb...north side is country....I think that is the north border of country and suburbs in Austin area...


When we first pulled into town on 35 we used some exit way up north for Leander and my mom wanted to turn around because it wasn't what she expected...then we got to our house and the surrounding area there at the Leander/Cedar Park border and she loved it...It was a drastic change in like 8 miles.

I am not sure just how to react to Wide-e-wide. As a Lufkinite, I am going to be careful as to how I stir this mix. I would say we in Lufkin are a good mix of Alan Jackson, Linkin Park and 50cent and have many of the same businesses here that they have in Tyler or Humble. There is city and country all around Lufkin, as it is in most of rural Texas. By the way 90% of Texas is in the COUNTRY.


Headliner , the HOOD? Shows that you know exactly nothing about Lufkin.

Here is your answer: Lufkin is country to people that live in the Houston, Dallas, Austin and San Antonio areas. Lufkin is the CITY to people from Hemphill, Center, Crockett, Corrigan and Groveton. Those places are Conway Twitty country.

Hey Double wide, ( :D ) I grew up on a farm, worked and raised a family in the suburbs and visited and hung around with city folks. Also, my inlaws were from Lufkin and I've been visiting there for the last 25 years. There are varying degrees of "city" or "country". Remember, when I leave my house and go outside my city limits, I'm either going into a big modern city or I'm going into an area that is less suburban than my area, but suburban just the same. I must drive at least 20 miles to get out of the suburbs and into the country. When you drive outside of Lufkin.......it's country. I agree that Lufkin is a "tweener" in that it has the conveniences of the suburbs, but it's "essence" is still country. The feel you get from the people at the grocery store is different in Lufkin than in Garland. Lufkin is still more country laid back than Garland. Lufkin is Garland, without Dallas and the surrounding cities, back when Garland was in the early 60's. Garland is easily the most "rural minded" city in the Metroplex, but Lufkin is still far more country than us. And that's a good thing. :)

Firm, you lived here, what I'm talking about is the mind-set of being family oriented with conservative, country values. Yes, Garland is changing with the influx of people from outside, however, you can't argue that Garland is not rural minded, look at how city government, the school district, and the police department are run. Come on man, think. :)

But the rest of you clowns are just guessing. I can't tell you
how bad it bothers me to be referred to as country...it makes
my blood boil...and I lived there almost my whole life.

It's not that being country is so bad.....it's the way they say it...
Like we are a bunch of hicks that sit around all year waitin' on that
football team to play...gimme a break...there is much more than just
football going on in Lufkin. Nevermind......there will be a few of you

GoOwls
05-30-2005, 08:23 PM
When you say, "the way they say it", I'm right with you. See, it's different, yes, but even here in Garland we see that. Go for jury duty in Dallas and you hear Garland mentioned, and the lawyers and judges roll their eyes and automatically assume a hick or redneck person or juror or policeman. Even the local all sports station on the radio, when Garland is refered to, you hear the groans and hick references. I understand what you mean and I understand the resentment, but if you call a cow a cat, it doesn't change the fact it's still a cow, whether it likes to be called a cow or not. Peace! :)

oh i am not even a golfer i just was making a point that you can not have a golf course that is rated #1 by many magazines in the state and be considered a hillbilly town in my mind. lufkin also has a decent sized mall, a zoo, and 3 movie theatres and they are about too add a huge 4th one and plenty of shopping and tons of restaurants. lufkin is constantly adding more business on a monthly basis. seems like every week they are building something. lufkin continues to grow. i just picture a country town as a dinky little town with a dairy queen and a grocery store and the whole town shuts down on friday nights during football. lufkin does not come close to fitting that mold. all the smaller towns that surround lufkin come here when they want to eat or go to a mall or go shopping or whatever. example, central, hudson, huntington, zavalla, diboll, and coorigan to name a few. oh and lufkin has their share of wealthy people with very big houses if you are judging on that type of thing. yes lufkin has their share of hicks but what town in texas does not?? not to mention lufkin is a relatively short drive away from tyler, houston, and dallas.

Too Funny.

I too am not a Golfer, I am a member of a country club but I do not have time to golf.

I have been to Lufkin and when compared to other towns in East Texas, Lufkin is not "country". Just take a look at Crocket or Jacksonville. Also - I was not judging Lufkin’s socioeconomic status, I was merely point out how ranking obsessed we are as a culture.

I know SLC has been identified as a wealthy community, which is true, but very few Texans would believe that there are certain parts of SLC that are “county”. In SLC you can still find cows grazing in the pasture right next to multi-million dollar homes..... and generally speaking most families move to SLC to get away from the city and live in the "country".


And, Yes the SLC does virtually "shut down" when the dragons play at Dragon Stadium and/or Dragons Stadium EAST (Texas Stadium).

What is wrong with being in the country. I've been here all my life and love it. I guess having all these tall beautiful pinetrees gives it that country flare since you can't see across town and the skies are not shaded out with tall building. On the otherhand, if you do business here, you will find that it is far from country. Many million dollar deals go down here everyday.
I recently visited Manhattan and I now know why Central Park exsist.

I don't know if I would consider Lufkin as "country" by many's definition, but I purposely moved here 7 years ago to get away from the city. I absolutely love it and have never regretted it. 20 minutes from the Lake, 1hr and 30 min from the city if I want to go. Maybe small town with a close knit community is a better description.;) Definitely growing....got to coach a lot of these young men when they played youth sports...only in a small town.

Not talking smack, but most of the SLC posts say that SLC will win without hesitation....LP will take down SLC this year.;)

When I moved to Katy from Fulshear in 1986, it was a rice farming community with lots of geese and sub-urbia homes going up everywhere. Not enough trees for me to call this place Country.

Haven't been out to Garrison, but we have hit Timpson and Teneha...We come from the DFW area so Garrison doesn't really make sense, but I may have blown through there en route to Houston. When going to Shelbyville we usually take 80/20 (start on 80, it kinda merges w/ 20 and we take 20) all teh way to Marshall then head straight south on 59. Then 96 in Teneha through Center.

I dont know man. I lived in Lufkin for a couple of years. It has kind of a tweener mode to it. Certain parts have a country flavor than certain parts have a bigtown feel.

The town that isnt country anymore is Tyler. Tyler is a dang Metropolis now.

Haha yea, 10 years ago, it was alittle country in Flint and now all the lands has been sold in Flint (Richest Land in East Texas) will get real expensive in 5 years because its all sold, nowhere to buy land in Flint now, Its a big metropolis now and is still growing. Our Freeway has been building for 2 1/2 years now and 12 years away to finish it all around Tyler. So it is growing alot and I am looking forward to 5 to 10 years later and can't wait to see what Flint's and South Tyler going to be like. It will be awesome, people keep on moving here with many safe places with less crime rate. I keep hearing people wanting to live here but they can't because of there job. They want land here to keep it for the next 10 years to make so much money. BTW, Lufkin used to be bigger than Tyler like 30 years ago or am I wrong? The South Tyler part was nothing 15-20 years ago and now it is already filled up. It is great!

It is a reasonable size town that is becoming more "citified" as the days go by, but the people "think" country and they "act" country, in general. The town has a country "state of mind". I think that is a good thing and one of Lufkins more endearing and likable qualities, however, it appears that many Lufkinites do not like being labeled as such.

NO doubt KTCarl that was insane. I mean to say they did not sacrifice money over comfort would be a understatement. ;) Nice to meet you my friend.

Lufkin only has 32.000-40.000 people? By the way people were arguing against it being country, I was thinking it might be at about 100.000 people. I would think that a city that size that doesnt have a large city (250.000+ people) within a 100 mile radius is country.

US census says (2000)pop. Abilene-115,930, Killeen-86,911, Tyler-83,650, Lufkin-32,709, Nac. 29,914.

Yes according to 2000.... not 2005.... Tyler has over 100,000 in population.

How can it be 100,000? are you thinking of Tyler because Lufkin doesn't seem that big everytime I go there.

Of course, I didn't say it was country, I said it just doesn't look like 100,000 people in that city. I know your talking to everyone. I just think that Lufkin is not country and the people aren't that country either. If you see many farmers in the school than it is pretty much country out there.

I dont think he ever said anything in reference to a Confederate flag or southern pride, he was just pointing out what country is. Also tell a nascar driver that what they do is not a sport and they will be the ones laughing at you, get in a race car and face the G-Forces they go through and it is like hell on wheels. These guys have to be in great shape to endure the 500 miles they go through a day sweating and all else. Also I would love to see you tell some of those so called "Bubbas" off, you do and you will be waking up in a hospital room not knowing what hit ya. By the way, what does it matter if people consider Lufkin country, it is in one of the greatest regions of Texas, the piney woods and plays some outstanding football.

Friday night curiousity- just what is the single season record for crew push-ups? Do field goals help or hurt the effort?

And while I'm at it on my 23rd post, does anyone have a take on the first Chase, Wasson that is, as he certainly will make an impact on tonite's ESPN match-up? Flea flicker anyone?

he is doing great. He has two big runs and they faked it to him once and then were able to throw for a touchdown. He is definitely involved big time

I don't know if Lufkin is country or not. In 1977 I got a job that required me to drive every road in Angelina County (Lufkin is the county seat) for a federal funds study. Looked country to me then. Strangest thing I ever saw was the creek leading from the paper plant. It was a wierd brown color like a paper sack and smelled something awful. That said, the paper plant was the main employer in town and I am sure Lufkin was glad to have it; I know Pasadena was happy to have their paper plant. Anyway, I suspect I am the only person in Southlake that has seen all of Angelina County but it was thirty years ago!

Hey LPLVR...I told Pack08 we aren't coming to the game.
It sucks...
But with all the kids it would be a nightmare for everybody.
Too many folks crammed together for the little ones to enjoy it.
But I will be listening on the radio.
'Yall have fun...wish we could be there.

They are having a ceremony for the vets returning from Iraq at Floyd Casey tomorrow. Otherwise the game probably would have been here in Waco again.
