    There are many places to enjoy great food. Convenient stores and grocery stores are in great distance of most homes. Downtown has many family friendly areas and perform often city events that get the whole town involved. I would like to see a change in the quality of some buildings and schools, though the city has gone through recent improvements to beautify the city.

    I love being both near the city, and in the rural area. This is where my family and friends are and I wouldn't want to be anywhere else!

    I feel very safe where I live, but I do see some crime around some parts of town.
