Zeigler is a friendly town, I think more stores should be added, but with it being such a small town I can see why there isnt.

Zeigler was a nice small town years ago. I think there are still some very good people left in Zeigler. I think they try hard to keep the town safe and nice. The newer people in town do not seem to respect it.
