    I grew up here my whole life, and I appreciate the beauty that can be seen in this place. Yet, I see this place changing for the better. I like the change I see in people making the neighborhoods safer, prettier, and friendlier.
    Madison County is a medium sized city in between Memphis and Nashville Tennessee. The entertainment options are slim when it comes to quality, but the food options are plentiful.
