I’ve passed through here a couple times and the overall feel of this town is disturbing. I saw drug needles everywhere. The police do little to nothing. There is no variety for any type of anything. Overall horrid town.

Pretty good place to live with lots of rural areas and farmland. Small town. I was born and raised here for 44 years and it's a good place to live with few job opportunities. Has a few factories as far as industrial and not but one restaurant and that's McDonalds.
I live less than a minute from the local fire department, we had a fire one day and we had the fire out before they were anywhere near being ready to make it to us. It took them around 10-15 minutes. The police aren't the quickest to get anywhere either. There are unneeded laws in the area as well, you are not allowed to have American Pit Bull Terriers in city limits, I think that is very unneeded.
