    This is a very farm rich area. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants to get out of the city. We have a close relationship with our neighbors and they would be next to us when we need them most. This town doesn't have hardly any jobs but there is two schools, a couple of bars, an auto shop, and a church, and of course the farmers always need the help. There is also a nature preserve near by that has great fishing spots. I see this town becoming more populous in the next couple of years but that shouldn't affect the closeness of our neighbors.

    Out of the many years I have been living in this town, we have only had one major crime. We had police from neighboring counties help out. The crime rate is nearly non-existent in this town.
