It's a small town. It feels very safe. However, it is not an ideal place for anyone over the age of 12. There are no activities for teenagers. There are no parks or theaters. The only place to hang out here is the Walmart parking lot, so that leads to a lot of drug use with the younger crowds. I'd like to see the town grow a bit more and address the issues with the lack of entertainment options with teenagers and young adults.

The small town feel is nice, but I'd like to see an increase on STEM jobs. The town is largely manual labor, or education/healthcare.
The recreation department does a fine job with the resources it has, but I would love to see bike lanes, and ways to encourage foot/bike traffic as a viable option for commute, as well as a healthy hobby.

Local businesses are mostly family owned and operated and have to charge ridiculously high prices in order to cover their overhead. Restaurants don't normally last long, unless it is a franchise. There is mostly nothing but fast food from which to choose around here. There are a few small variety shops, some thrift stores, Wal-Mart, and a few clothing stores. For anything major, out of town travel is necessary.
