I love living here. It is small but I don't care for big cities. The country is beautiful and the stars at night are breathtaking. After I graduate I would love to either live here or live somewhere similar to it. I love knowing the people I see and having a tight close knit community.
We need to get a Dollar General or some similar type of store so that we can have the option to say in town instead of driving to a different town to get the supplies we need.
Most people have jobs in nearby towns, there are a few open positions for small businesses in town
