We are gaining alot of economic activity due to the new malls and casinos. This draws in new families to the area for the schools and the local attractions. For example, we have running clubs, free lunch programs, and a new splash pad at the park. There is so much to do, that you cannot do it all.

Though I do not drink alcohol, there is a brewery being installed which will serve unique craft beers to its patrons should they so desire any. There are several restaurants; about half of them are local businesses. The Chinese restaurant is rather bad, but we also have Italian and American restaurants, coffee-shops, at least two bars, and a pizza place in addition to the staples of McDonald's and Burger King.
There was recently a lawyer who was convicted of owning and operating a meth lab in the main area of town, which is where several local businesses and our library are located. He was arrested and barred from operating his business there, but wheedled his way out of jail and now operates in Detroit. Crime is warned about, but sometimes paperwork slows down operations.
