    I think Overton County is a good place to live. Our school systems are very good and it's a peaceful place. There's cute little restaurants to eat at but also ones you're used to seeing like McDonalds and Taco Bell. I enjoy it here.

    If there is an emergency, cops are quick to answer, but there isn't many visible. Vandalism is somewhat of a trend here. Teenagers love to toss rolls of toilet paper in the trees or spray paint driveways.
    I would choose to live her over and over again. This community has such a loving atmosphere, and everyone is always ready to help. Compared to other places I have lived, it goes at a much slower pace here.
