Very small town, which gives you a half full half empty experience. Everyone knows each other, which may or may not be a good thing depending on the situation and people involved. As well as everything being close together, which again may or may not be a good thing. Can be good on gas, can be also very boring.

The police are here when you need them, and sometimes there's an occasional shooting.
I would love to see my community grow and get better but, the violence has gotten out of hand. And not much is being done about it
