I have always liked Kountze because it is where I grew up. The scholl have always been very small but that just means that the students could have a more personal connection with the teachers. Some things that I would like to see change in Kountze is the Motel 8, It needs to be completely torn down and rebuilt because it is very old and is disgusting inside.

Kountze is a very small town where everybody in town knows each other and would do anything to help each other. In a crisis, we work together to fix it and help each other as much as possible. The things I would change about kountze would be the amount of things us teens could do. Normally, we would drive out of town to go watch a movie or roller skate. Also the city park, I would add a few things to the over all design to make it more interesting and cause more people to get out and get active.
Small town, everyone knows everyone else's business. That's not always a bad thing, people are generally ready to help. Some bigoted people; they literally boycotted a gas station because the owners were Muslim...
