Hi . I have lived here for 4 years and haven't met anyone arrogant yet.
Maybe the person who wrote the review isn't nice!!! There are school buses, a great town pool, easy access to the city and to the farther north!!!

I love my hometown - it is always great to return to. Great place to raise a family - many young families with children populate the area. Not a lot to do for teenage/20s age group.
People are too arrogant and entitled in this area and are not content with the great life they are given. Instead of enjoying all the wonderful things they are given, they complain and just keep wanting more and more.
