Booneville is a quiet small college town, for the most part. I would like to see growth in the town as a whole. I would like to see crime and drug rates drop. We need more entertainment and employment opportunities to keep young and old people alike out of trouble. Give us something to look forward to, something to do!

I love my hometown, Booneville because of how close we are as a community. I see many people in this town as if they were part of my family. For example, my family and I just experienced the most traumatic experience a few months ago. Our worlds were completely turned upside down. We were broken and lost. The majority of this community has gone and is still going out of there way to check on us and just go above and beyond to help us cope with this loss. I will never be able to thank each person enough for how good they've been to us. I love this small town of mine so much. I am forever thankful for all the sweet souls who live here.
