    In this area we have nice stores, but none of them really carry what teenagers look to wear.
    Review Burke
    Most parents in this town work at doctor offices or the oil field. Seeing that I have had two jobs and im only 18 tells me that someone who is struggling can easily find a job if need be.
    I love living in this area. I hope to always be here.
