I have been a lifelong resident of this community. It used to be very nice. Now you have all the farm areas being sold for houses. Putting a strain on our roads, utilities, schools, etc. Hate to see it going down the tubes like everywhere else.

It's a lovely area. I live in between two extremes: Sharon and Wadsworth. Sharon is more rural, with wealthier families. Wadsworth is packed with people, and many of them are not well off. Nevertheless, Wadsworth has a far friendlier atmosphere than Sharon. There is a sort of underlying spirit of goodwill, community, and taking care of one another. My heart aches to see these good people struggling financially.
We are a a small town community where life revolves around Highland High School. There are no hangouts or community centers where people gather to talk and reminisce. What we do have, though, is a love for the kids who participate in any high school extracurricular activity from football to robotics. Whenever there's an event, families show up from all over, regardless if they have a child participating or not. Through this amiability, our community has been a home to families for generations. Moreover, we are no stranger to the "small town" bias. Everybody knows everybody, but there are some who take that too literally.
