    The worst issues with residing in this area are that local people have a habit of snooping around people's backyards at night and stealing things. The only other negative aspect that I have noticed is the lack vocational opportunities. Almost all my local peers are unemployed. And in order to find a job one would most likely need to find transportation into Tucson.
    Break ins and entering, stealing of anything kept outside or in a garage at night seem to be the only repeated crimes.
    It's okay, there is not much to do where I live but if you "go into town", there's plenty of things to do.
