Sheridan is a decent town, the kind where a lot of people know each other and the chances of seeing someone you know are pretty good. The only thing I would like to see changed is the fact that I feel like there's too much crime and drug abuse and it can sometimes be a, somewhat, unnerving place; but other than that, it's a pretty good place to live.

I like that Sheridan is a small community where everyone seems to know each other. I also like that there are programs for students in high school to get job experience at a local shop. Even though Sheridan has a small high school the teachers get to know the students which helps with learning.
There are to many drug related crimes in this town. I would like to see some change in the area including housing as well as local areas.
