Traveling SR 18 into town the speed limit changes from 55 to 25 as road curves; what looks to be country side is actually the beginning of town; officers ‘hide’ by the old grade school or behind the feedstore; the other two entryways (US 50)not as bad; This a good source of income for the town, especially during festivals and fairs when out of towners visit. Very small town, if you’re not related to someone then you know someone who is.
