Well, I've never been to Dixon, but I've been to Oklahoma. They tell me I was born there....True. I looked Dixon up on map..not far from Davis and their Brain Farm. Be glad you are in a small town with good soil to plant in. The smaller the town, the less the problems are. The secret is to capture the people's imagination be getting them involved in community projects. Have a community "barn raising" and throw Dances in the barn. Square dancing isn't "square" It requires alot of teaching as to how and when. And, it is one heck of allot of fun. If you want a sense of power, get into square dancing. A square is compose of four people who must know exactly what to do and when. One mistake, and the square falls apart. I envy you living in Dixon. I live in Tulsa, okla (Grew up in Glendale, ca) and all the papers here ..... killings, robberies, and drug busts. Collectively, Dixonites ?? have power in unification> Don't ask your kids; tell them. Someday, I am going to visit Dixon.....God luv ye all....Bob Fishback Tulsa, ok

Katherine Westerhause ?? To answer your question about why adults dont dance much....their bellies are too big and they are infused with insecurity. Vacaville sound reminds me of a good place to manufacture Vacuum Cleaners...You sound like a leader...get the barn raising started and over see it.

That is exactly what I was going to put on here as a comment. I grew up here and boredom got me into a bit of trouble before owning a car and after....LOL. Plus it's a great family outing.....maybe even a mini golf course..... :)

Born and raised in Dixon 60's-70's and a lot of us had a great childhood in Dixon and did not get into trouble. I do agree that we need more entertainment but the lack of entertainment should not become an excuse for getting into trouble. A movie theater, more after school groups, activities and clubs would be good.
