The schools in this area are not very good and receive low funding. Very few stores exist in this area, they are mainly fast food restaurants, grocery stores, and a few other stores, but there is not too much variety. There are also few job opportunities in the area. It would be nice if there was more diversity, job opportunities, stores, school funding, and job diversity. However, the area can be relatively peaceful.

While I am currently a senior in high school, I would love to see more job opportunities for both students and parents seeking work. Our town has lost a lot since the coal industry has been hit so hard and it would also be nice to see fun things to do for the kids in our community. We have a nice town to live in, we just need things to do.
