Hardin County Reviews
Like so many other areas, one of our biggest battles is drug use. From young to old, the problem seems to be growing rapidly despite all law enforcement can do. Being a small town, our number of patrol cars is more limited due to funding, but we are blessed with dedicated officers that patrol constantly and strive to keep us safe. The size of our county and limited number of patrol cars per shift also leaves the door open for theft. With a combination of drug use and being a low economic area, unfortunately some people chose theft and drug manufacturing and sells over a days hard work. I fear that as the economy worsens, and drug use climbs that the theft and violence will escalate out of control.
There is a lot to be said about living in a small town. We do not have the conveniences of a larger city, but there are some advantages. The people in my town are good about lending a helping hand to those in need, whether it be mission trips, gathering clothes for those in need, or raising money for cancer patients or funerals. I am a teenager about to leave for college, with dreams of living in a larger city where there are more social activities for someone my age, but I know I will miss the friendships and love from a small town. Although at this point in my life I am unsure of when, I do think of coming back, whether it be when I retire or when I have a career established to make a difference in my hometown. I will never regret my days in my small town for those days and my raising there will hopefully help keep me grounded. In my short 18 years, I have watched this town grow and I know it will continue to grow. And as where it would be nice to have some of the conveniences of a larger town or city, and I feel like it will continue to grow, I hope it always keeps the small town atmosphere.
Great neighbors. Quiet community to live in. Wildlife surrounds my home.
