Heflin is a small, rural town that don't many people know about. I like it because it's calm and you know everybody. However, I do not like that there is not a lot to do or even restaurants to eat at.
I like how the people in Heflin care for each other. In heflin, everyone knows everyone. when something happens to a person it does not take long for the word to get around. I would change how rumors spread in this town.
