I went to school all my life here, good place to live, nice neighbors, great jobs and growing dailey. Place's are always hiring, my kids go to school here, and love their friends. My home is in a good neighborhood so we dont see a lot of crime around here. Our bills are average of most people's i suppose. We have a family of five, live in a three bedroom, two leveled home.
