    The small town atmosphere is quaint and relaxing, but the secluded nature of the town itself closes off he residents from the rest of the outside world. Unfortunately, people seem ignorant of, or simply refuse to acknowledge, views that do not correspond exactly with their own. That said, this does not apply to everyone.
    It is a quaint little town where disabilities like autism and down syndrome affected kids are welcomed and and made to feel normal. There are normal issues like bullies but they are few and far inbetween. The people take pride in their town and look for ways to improve.
    I like how they have a good variety of stores to shop at, close to home. Need more places like a movie theater and mall.
