      Lovely town that is recently coming back thanks to local entities bringing new ideas and life to this charming town. Sidewalks and a beautiful Town Hall, a gorgeous nature center and affordable housing with friendly people that still have great pride in their homes. Only downfall is the States leadership; making our County a free for all for young and capable people living without working and collecting taxpayers hard earned money. Not to mention the amount of people claiming disability. Sad.
