Could do better community wise but for the school (Lourdes) I love it. The school (Lourdes) is a wonderful place for the kids to have their educational needs and spiritual needs met.

Juvenile crime (drugs) seems to be on an up rise. Need more preventative programs before it gets to the courts for these kids. These kids need intervention as they don't have a lot of help at home.
I think having a college in the town there's room for business opportunities.
