The schools teachers are cocaine addicts. The police are good ole boys who only enforce laws that benefit their friends. The public services are the same only there for the ppl who work in public services. Its a small minded uneducated area lacking professional services. The Meth and cocaine has become a big problem here. and the police do nothing to stop it. Do not move here.
