Yes! As a former L.A. resident (Hollywood) who had a child in Selma Ave. Elementary school in the early 90s, I can say that DPS, though troubled, is appealing in comparison. I am considering Saint Anthony's for my 3 year old and am still leaning towards DPS. Time will tell.

There are some very nice places around the metro that are easily accessible to WPAFB. Even some nice areas downtown if you're into urban living.

You probably wont be living (in dayton), working at WPAFB, you will want to live in the Beavercreek area, which has no crime, great shopping and dining, excellent schools, low cost of living. If trying to decide to come work at the base, forget about dayton, you will never have any reason to go there.

After reading that I was thinking maybe jury duty would bring one into town, but then I realized if someone lived in Beavercreek, Sugarcreek Twp, or Bellbrook they'd be doing jury duty in Xenia most likely.

So, true, the average Greene County suburbanite would never need to go into the city, except passing through on the expressway.

I guess I am the same way with "north". In the 22 or so years Ive lived here I think I've been to Chicago or Columbus more times than I've been to Tipp City, Vandalia, and other points north of SR4 (aside from passing through on the intersate and using the airport).
