dc.description.abstractThe well kept facilities of Gull Lake High School abut M-89 just east of the four corner crossing that indicates the presence of quaint downtown Richland. If approaching the school from the west, one passes through the eastern residential hub of Kalamazoo. This is a sprawling and occasionally run down environ composed of distinct neighborhoods. Still approaching, leaving Eastern Kalamazoo one passes a suburban style shopping district. Here, radiating from the enormous and always busy Meijer, a supermarket with emphasis on the super size and ability of the giant to purchase vast quantities of product and offer it to the consumer at a fair price, one can find a dead shopping mall, a five screen cut-rate theater, and a smattering of fast food joints and quick fix car service centers. Once past this convenient castle of commerce, now on M-89 proper one passes very pretty farms. Cows can be seen on a number of occasions as well as seemingly millions of trees and forty or fifty dispersed homes, ranch style and farm house two-stories. Suddenly traffic signs tell motorists to slow down and the houses alongside the road are spaced much more closely than before. Now the visitor from the west is in a suburban style neighborhood that appears to be full to capacity with neighbors prospering mildly. This is less than a country mile from the High School. One then passes through the previously mentioned quaint Village of Richland, then passes a cemetery and a volunteer fire fighter hang-out. The traffic signs allow drivers to go as fast as 45 MPH and then the building is in sight on the right.en_US
