There are quite a few crimes that range from substance abuse (mostly underage) to domestic violence to sexual assault. These types of crimes aren't taken care of as well as they should be. Most of the time it seems like the police would rather leave what happens in the house to stay there. It also seems like they don't see crimes that happen right in front of thier faces.They are very good at pulling people over in town though.

We don't typically have a horrible disaster, the occasional blizzardbor intense rain storm. We have been known for drought season, and for flooding. Things have been semi calm
Its great if you are older generation. Not much is geared toward the younger generation, however the prices and variety of things are great
