    I really love living in the Lakes Region, ever since Nadia's there is no decent Italian Restaurants in the area.

    Very great community with many residences who are very involved in the community. The people are extremely nice and the high school is great. However the elementary school is having issues. It is small but a great place to grow up.

    I live in a very rural neighborhood and only problem with crime and it's not even a crime. Once of my neighbors shoots his gun after he has had a few too many and I am afraid he might shoot a dog and not what ever kind of animal he is shooting at. This is always after dark and hopefully nobody is walking in the woods.
