I've grown up here my entire life. It is a small town with nothing to do. Luckily a larger city is only an hour away. While I liked growing up here, I would never move back here after college. There are no jobs that interest me in this town.

The county police patrol the town regularly, they respond when needed.
great place to raise a family if you like the small town feel. lots of diversity in this small community. The school is nice
