    More police presence does not equal a safer community. Nor does stricter laws, or a more vigilant task force. The jails are literally so full, they are letting drug users go because they don't have the space to incarcerate them. The problem isn't that the cops aren't doing their job. The problem is that people don't care anymore. They have lost hope, because the area so economically screwed up.

    There aren't any mom and pop stores around here, but there are some in the towns over from me. They do not have as great of a selection of goods, but usually they are good quality!

    For the most part, residents grew up here and return. Families have lived in this town for generations. I love some of the surrounding towns and the nature and wild life is amazing.
