    There is a lot of growth happening all around the community. I would like to see more coming back from the local administrative authorities as far as giving back to community. I would like to see the local authorities staff the firehouse properly as there are not enough full time employees to properly man the fire department; so if me or my family needed a fire engine and an ambulance there is not enough staff to carry out the safety for the community. The experience with the schools has been great and wonderful. The teachers and administration has been so helpful with any situation, and are very easy to communicate with and are there for the students.
    I'll try to talk about Brickstone Brewery from a guest's point of view. The restaurant/brewery has great beer specials throughout the week which brings the company a majority of their business. The beer is great! The food is also pretty good, but if you saw the cleanliness of the kitchen you wouldn't want to eat there. They definitely do not follow health code regulations, for example, no dates on any of the food on the prep line.

    Grapes & Hops brings its own unique twist to a bar. It's like if a coffee shop only served wine and beer. It's very relaxing with a very comfortable at home feeling. The wine and craft beer selection is phenomenal! They also serve cheese platters. The owner is very nice as well.
    This review is about Grapes & Hops. It is a new local wine and craft beer "restaurant." I'm not sure if restaurant is the right word for it. They serve cheese platters but there is no kitchen. I also wouldn't call it a bar either. It has very comfortable and modern atmosphere. When you walk in, you immediately feel at home and relaxed, almost like a coffee shop. They have an excellent selection of wine, and craft beers on tap. They also host entertainment and have a comedy open mic every third Thursday of the month!
