Not much in our town any more. Stores have closed. We only have one grocery store and it is over priced and poor quality. We have the normal unhealthy fast food restaurant, there are no family restaurants. We have a really good pizza shop but the large is going to cost around 30.00. Most families can not afford that. There are no activities for kids nor gyms to promote a healthy living.

The area is quiet and nice to live in. However the city keeps running businesses out of town and makes it hard to find a job in town for students. We have a nice park that we can play basketball in and take kids to play.

There are not many concerns about safety in our town. Once in a while we will get a stealing spree by a few people but it usually does not go beyond that.
