Don't know about the bugs. But this may give you an idea about the crime.

Okay, hum....I never heard of anybody moving to Marshville before. Marshville is just beyond Monroe on Hwy 74. It is mainly known for poultry processing plants and is about 30-35 miles from downtown Charlotte. It is a very sleepy little town, and I suspect it has a very high Hispanic population as some in that area do. The big event is Friday nights at Don's Auction House. Some nights he has antiques and some night 'regular junk' but you can always get something cheap.

I said that in a 'tongue in cheek' manner, but it is basically factual. It depends on what you like and how bad he needs the job.

Thank you for your response. We have been down to visit,but that was only for a couple of days, didn't get around enough. His job would be in marshville and we are willing to live within 20 miles to find the right place. Wingate did seem to be nice. We now live in a quiet,very private home here in Pa. My main concern is schooling for my 15 yr old. His big worry is losing his friends. I know he will make more, but try to tell him. With internet these days he can still keep in touch up here.

Wingate is a nice location, though low key especially for a teenager. I can tell you that moving when you have a teenager can be trying since I did that myself. They have their own ideas of what is great and what isn't. My son decided (not quite 17 then) that he would just leave home and go back to his old friends. There was no reasoning with him whatsoever. Ask how he would live and he'd say with friends, ask where he'd get the money and he'd say 'they wouldn't charge him anything' or he'd earn it. (Right. How?) So, he went back. I found someone to 'take him in' until I could get back too. I was divorced but didn't want him under the influence of his dad and he didn't want to go there either. So, I finally took the first job offer I got and took a real blow to my career to get back. They can be difficult at that age. Good luck.
