Here is a great article on a local town. It's a lengthy read, but it does a great job of summing up what life is like in the area that I live in. As much as I love the Rocky Mountains, and dream of living there, I have yet to find a place where I enjoy the people more than this part of Southwest Missouri that I live in. We're fighters. That became evident to the nation after the Joplin tornado when we pitched in an got it taken care of.
Anyway, this is a story on a neat little town about a half hour north of Joplin. You can read it here. My father used to drive a truck, and spent many hours picking up freight at the factory mentioned in the article.
