Spindale Reviews

I've been living in Spindale my whole life. I attended all three of the schools; elementary, middle and secondary. I enjoyed the school system. However Spindale is a small place; very close knit community. Due to it's size though, there's not a very good nightlife unless you have friends in the community. There's also a lack of commutes.

Most teenagers who are looking for a summer job have a difficult time finding one. With the job market so slow, adults are now having to take any job they can get, which means less jobs for summer.
Matthew's Gym. The owner is also the trainer. He allows me to work out there for my summer break from college football. He has a great sense of humor and is always helpful.
