    My answer may be biased, but we were robbed twice within the same week and the cops did nothing about it. They showed up, told us to make an insurance claim, and left. There were fingerprints and DNA all over the house from these burglars, but our police did not see it necessary to stop them. Although, they do close to nothing, they did get a brand new, very expensive, station.

    It's nice and quiet. Neighbors are friendly. My three year old son attends the early childhood development school and has been excelling tremendously. They've been so helpful in identifying resources and teaching myself and my son on how to improve his speech and behavior.

    The overall experience of this area is small and comfortable. Nothing new ever happens. It stays the same with subtle changes in politicians in our town.
