Pros: Lots of city activities and parks for families, good community resources, and most of the schools including the community college are decent, not great just decent (although most of the teachers don't live here). Downtown is trying hard to develop.
Cons: EVERYTHING else! Our mayor is an ignorant twit, our "mall" is garbage, traffic lights and railroad crossings are defunct, housing is slum or heinously overpriced, you can't get a job unless you're ok with PT/min wage/fast food even with a degree (which means you can't afford the homes at over $200k+), HUGE drug problem, the local police force/judicial system are completely corrupt, and there is absolutely nothing to do past 7pm. That's when the tweakers and hood rats roam the streets in droves. Oh, and it reeks like rotten eggs from the nearby paper plant when it's foggy or rains, which is often.
