I never wanted to move here to start with,but due to family situation I did.When I tried to move away,the 2008 housing situation collapsed, leaving me stuck with a mortgage no one else would pay.The house simply wasn't worth what I owed,so I'm stuck. There is nowhere for our children to play,too hilly.There is nothing for our teens to do,no swimming pool,nothing.Mass transit is a joke.We have been abandoned and forgotten,real facts.

The Ranch House restaurant is the best eatery here.
