Drugs everywhere. Buildings falling down or abandoned. Great schools though. The community members work together. The ones that aren’t a part of the drug use.

I like living in small town where everybody knows everybody. I've lived her my whole life and I would not change anything about it. The sports are awesome because everyone in the town comes to every game even if were not as good that year. Our community is really good too because if something bad happens we all come together for the person or people involved.
I grew up around Eldorado, IL. but for 3 years now I have lived in this small friendly town. It hasn't changed much since I was a kid but they sure have a couple good of hometown cooking restaurants.
