In 1994, my parents opened a diner that became the local gathering place for the community. As a homeschool student, I learned many valuable lessons from interacting with our customers. I was exposed to international visitors, foreign exchange students, as well as the rich and the poor. We kept a box underneath the register that contained a bunch of index cards. Each index card was labeled with the name of someone we bartered food, beverage, and pastries for their services in a variety of areas. My brother was picked up twice by the police for truancy even though we legally homeschooled. Another officer walked into the coffee shop for his daily coffee and was chatting with my dad and informed him that my mom had a warrant out for her arrest due to an unpaid traffic ticket. Mom was at the courthouse that afternoon and paid the fine.

Circleville is a small town with some diversity, but it consists mostly of white families. Recently there have been more people of color moving in, but they're still the minority. Circleville High school is average in every sense of the word. There's some school spirit, but even then it's minuscule to none when it comes to pep rallies and football games. The ceiling tiles leak, students vape and sometimes even smoke in the bathrooms, and most students have no respect for their teachers. There isn't much in terms of entertainment - our skating rink/bowling alley burned down a couple of years ago and was never rebuilt - and the parks have been overtaken by druggies and litter. The most you'll see are the five or so banks we have around every corner, which isn't even an understatement.
I'm grateful that I've been safe while living here, but Circleville has had its fair share of crimes for how big of a town we are.
Everyone is very friendly and welcoming. Cute shops and great food! Plus the annual pumpkin show every October. I would like to see the drug problem decrease as well as the growing homeless population that has started this year.
