    If I could do things all over again I think I would still choose to stay where I am at. I love the friendly atmosphere and there is a lot of community involvement. I feel like Atkins is gonna grow and get bigger. As far as living in Iowa I'm used to all the weather changes but I wouldn't mind living in somewhere that is warm all the time.

    There are cops around most of the time, but they might be there just patrolling, there isant really any violence or crime going on in my neighborhood but it is good to have a cop around just in case of an emergency
