I grew up here, so I have had the opportunity to see so many changes. There is always something going on, snowmobiling, 4-wheeling, fishing, boating, hay rides, and various other activities. But I have also seen a decline over the years. Instead of having 3 food stores, we are down to 1. The city council members have declined having new businesses move in, because they are afraid of change, when in reality, they need to start competing to keep Adams County money within Adams County,

It's a nice quiet place to live and all the little stores are close by. If we could add more stores, restaurants , or things to do in the future then I could see it definitely being a better place to live.
There are barley any crimes in this small town. I would say that if everyone works really hard this place could be a very safe place to live, we just need to get the drugs off of the streets.
