    The area is a growing community. There is a Walmart so one can easily find almost anything they are looking to buy there. The selection of fast food restaurants in town gets boring because there are only a select number of choices. There is one major gas station and countless smaller ones.
    Police are always patrolling the town
    There are still some mom and pop businesses, but as the town grows corporations have started to take over at the expense of the citizens.
