There is little variety in the stores. Most of them are thrift stores, with only about three other boutiques. The only other clothing store is a small Cato's. We have a Walmart and a Food giant and those are about are only grocery stores. There are a couple of other business, but they are so small and specialized in what they sell that there is little business there. The only fast food places we have are a Burger King, McDonald's, Hardees, and Sonic. Then we have about five Mexican restaurants and one family owned Chinese restaurant.

it is a small town community that seems to be dying out. The larger industry businesses are taking over the small ones and funding of the events/education in the community is at an all time low. Moral is down and we have currently lost our hospital which will hurt the possibility of getting other industries into the community as well.
Crime is slowly on the rise in our community. Thefts and break ins are bad but law enforcement does their best to stay on top of the problem.
