For me and everyone that lives here, I can easily say that this town is always peaceful. Nothing dramatic happens here, just as very nice place to live. Friendly people who will help those in need. A strong community founded on open-mindedness and mutual care for one another.
I think this place has potential, but the local government doesn't always do things in the interest of the people. There are a lot of issues that need to be addressed that haven't and that can be frustrating.
