Sheridan Reviews

2 reviews
I see myself leaving the area I live in when I am finished with collage. The opportunities for the career that I will be going into doesn't allow me to stay in a small town like I live in now, there are not job opportunities of that sort here. I would like to like in a little bigger town then I am currently in anyway. In a small town everyone knows your business (even if it isn't their business to know). On the flip side to that, in a crisis everyone is there to help out.

I don't not see this area developing into a major or medium size town, small business try to develop, but don't seem to survive here.

In a small town safety from crime isn't really there, it is safety from farm equipment etc. that we have to worry about. There is some drug and alcohol abuse leading to DUI's and DWI's.
