    I know I am not really in the workforce here in my area, however, from what I hear and from what I see when I Drive past houses or talk to people is that we really don't have too many options here. Many people stayed because its family, Iits what they know, but others just are too lazy and think that if they can't find jobs they want then Iits all the government's fault!
    Review Almer Township
    tough one, we don't have a lot of events that wrecked many tourists we have a lot of festivals and events that attract natives. Most people expect our annual Pumpkin Festival or cars and craft showsbecause they live in the area and have went ever since they were children. However, the festivals we have are a once a year thing we don't have many fun activities or things to do every weekend like big cities do. Yes, we have a bowling alley, we have an old theatre and we have restaurants and a few parks, but I guess it's different because you don't feel like anything is new or anything is exciting anymore because you have the same things you've had since you were growing up. Nothing changes, nothing seems different or surprising or worthwhile. I mean, yes, you want to be able to have those places that you've had since you're a child, to go back to and relive those memories but you also want new things that keep create new memories, new ideas, fun times. We just don't seem to have it here.
    I personally grew up in a house that was built by my father is and was remodeled as I was growing up and I've always felt like I lived well. When you passed how is it in town or out in the country it really just depends on who's living there. I guess you could say that about anyplace we don't have apartments for super close houses like they have in the city. I mean yes we have a few apartment buildings but it's hard to even think someone listen apartment around here I could talk to someone who lived in the apartment and not even expect that they do. Its just not normal around here, but what is?
