    Employment opportunites in the area are practically nonexistent, unless you have a close relative or friend willing to hire you.

    The people aren't the nicest here, if you're new in town you're mostly ignored.

    Living as a teenager in this town, there is limited things to do besides sporting events. Traveling always has to occur is a day of fun is to be occurring.
