    Not much crime at all. This isn't a place I ever feel unsafe in. There are kids doing a bit of vandalism, but it isn't bad in the long run for everything.
    This area is such a great place to live. The whole town has a family feeling, and everyone knows each other, most of the time.
    We have many jobs, but not opportunistic ones.
