The people that I have gotten to know are all very nice and open. People trust each other. The job market could really be better, but there is quite a bit of work and employment in other towns only 15 minutes away.

Most people live rather far away, so most sense of community only comes about during certain sporting events.
Never have I ever felt unsafe around the area. The people all around are trustworthy and the police are effective.
