High crime, nothing to do, bad schools, unsafe neighborhoods, high taxes, high rent prices, low home values, low wages, high gas prices. Friendly police force that tries very hard, they just can't keep up with the city growing too fast.

The bowling ally used to be a great past time in Benton but sadly, it has been replaced by a fitness center. What was good is gone and what is bad is getting worse.
