I like the atmosphere in the schools and the work setting. I just wish there were a little less crime here, but the town as a whole is pretty friendly.

We have a big drug problem yet little seems to be done about it. The police seem to be more concerned about writing tickets. We've had vandalism issues but no one seems to be arrested.
At times being a teenager things could get a little boring but for younger children and older adults its a great place.
