I love the small town life, the quiet community. I would love to see a place for young adults to go, a place they can interact with each other along with games, and something to keep them occupied. Its true everywhere that kids are best kept busy and off the streets.

There are no restaurants. Nothing to do. Occasionally there are baseball/football games at the park but not often. The town only has a Casey's for a general store. There is no grocery store.
