I like Knox city because of the size. I enjoy the fact that I can get to know everyone on a first name basis. However this is not always a good thing considering everyone knows everything about you. I would like to see people lifting each other up rather than tearing each other down. In this town, jealousy is a big deal and can be very difficult to deal with sometimes.

Very small town, but with a handful of good restaurants. You can walk just about anywhere in town in about fifteen minutes.
Small town with population 1130 so everyone know everyone. Drugs are a small problem and the cause of most crime. But it is quiet and peaceful for the most part. Have lived here 24 years.
