    I live in a small town where nothing is going anywhere. no new business or jobs. a really bad economy and the people here need that but the town's kind of in a rut. I never really had a choice about living here but I'm hoping Nacogdoches is better.

    the crime is all small town stuff. like drugs and drinking so there's nothing major like homicide happening constantly to be worried about.
