I just got back from Smith Center after our annual pheasant hunt, that place is great! It is like taking a step back in time, when people were still nice to one another. I look forward to it every year.

Yes, I do know that the Smith Center, Norton, Phillipsburg, etc. area is very HIGHLY thought of when it comes to pheasant hunting nationally.

Alco is fixing to open next month and it is a huge store, so they are taking applications (at Duckwalls downtown). So lots of jobs now. A lot of businesses are having trouble getting people to work. I put my 2 week notice in at the hotel about 3 months or so ago and am still there as she cant find anyone that wants to work! It is really a nice job and she pays well for this area. I just have to find a clerical job because of spinal problems. No matter where you live, the young people will always leave to go somewhere else because the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence, but when they get there, they will see that it is no better there than it was where they started. Usually they will find that the cost of living is higher and the quality of life is lower, especially when they leave a place like this. Only thing I wish we had here was a better choice in churches.

Default Planning Moving to Smith Center Soon from London. I and wife are retiring by buying small house.

My concerns have to do with isolation, lack of shopping, etc. Can anyone who is familiar with the Smith Center general area in North Central Kansas please respond by telling me where you go shopping, the distance to the closest Target, WalMart, Home Depot, Staples, mall, etc. Also, anything else that you think might be useful for me to know about before I make the big move. Thank you.
I am sorry I could understan to begin my message. I have attend a telephone there for to go. Bye
