Anna has changed dramatically just in my short lifetime. There was once a booming factory industry, a train station, a movie theatre and many other things that are now only history to this town. As a child we played outside until the street lights came on and even after the darkness fell letting the moon/fireflies be our light. Now there are hardly any beneficial jobs in the area. Robberies, pill/heroin/meth addiction are a severe problem in this area. It unfortunately appears as if the towns officials would rather concentrate on other "issues" such as area beautification, constructing a new county court house, etc. It seems as if my childhood home has shattered over this towns downfall.
Review Anna
I love living in Anna, it is a small community that seems to really love its residents. I have always felt safe and welcome here.
Natural disasters rarely ever touch Anna. I have been leaving her for 14 years and have yet to feel threaten by natural desasters. Tornados touch down places around this area but never pass come through here. Back in 2008 we had a terrible Ice storm that took the power for 1 week, but since then it has been relatively quiet.
