Crime & Safety
There used to be more mom and pop stores in the area. However there are more and more national chain stores that are moving in and taking all of the business away. Walmart is the biggest one there are fewer convenience stores and less toy stores due to Walmart. Lowes also took business away from smaller hardware stores making it tough for them to survive. there is now only one local hardware store in town.
I love where I live because there aren't many neighbors like there is in the city which gives me more privacy. If I could do it all over I would still live here because I have much land where I live to do a lot of things I enjoy such as outdoor sports.
The general atmosphere is declining every year. The buildings are getting older and not getting renovated. The town just looks gloomy and like nothing is going on.
