I moved from my hometown of Spring Hill because I felt it was growing too fast. It didn't feel like the small town I had grown up with and loved. Thanks for confiming my belief that it was growing too fast.

My Hometown of Gardner and my High School Town of Spring Hill, are both growing so fast that it is no longer the same as a small town setting. Waving at people, they don't wave back; saying hello to people, they just look at you. Neighbors don't come over, they stay to themselves. Not much in the way of helping between neighbors these days either. Whether it was picking up branches, helping to dig out snow covered driveways, sidewalks... No longer do the neighbors bring food, pies etc over when a new family moves into town. Instead they just wonder how soon you will get your trash from the move cleaned up, and the traffic level won't be so annoying. Yes, there are major changes these days. When I can get my bills paid up to date, I'm going to be moving far, far away, a small town in...I don't think I'm ready to share the information. Small towns share in ideas, are kind and considerate. Our once small towns have become what Kansas City use to be 50 years ago...

I live in Gardner... Moved there about 6mo. ago and was very pleased with the community. I moved from Emporia which is approx 40k ppl. However I can agree with you on the small town feel as I come from Onaga Ks which likens to what Gardner used to be like possibly even Edgerton. Regardless I still feel that Gardner is a very close knit community with small town values as my neighbor and I share yard work. He noticed that I hadn't mowed so he mowed mine next time I was mowing and I took care of his. Hope it stays that way....

I was thinking of movig farther south or even west to avoid all of this nonsense...in two years the house value has increased over $9,000. If it will do this for another two years then I will absolutely move...I was thinking Arizona, but now more like Utah. I've had enough! Lindsey J. Angell
