Summerville is an old town that has a population of around 4,000 people. I love Summerville because my mother's family lives here, and after my parents' divorce, it was home. After living here for twelve years, I enjoy having my family so close. I live in a predominately black neighborhood. The roads in my neighborhood have potholes in the road that, if ran over, could possibly damage your car. Whenever the City of Summerville comes to "fix" the potholes, the men only pave the specific spot. In nicer neighborhoods, the roads are all paved and smooth. I just don't understand why my neighborhood doesn't have good roads.
