Everyday people: Hill loves quiet life in Zumbrota
ZUMBROTA -- James Hill's life got a lot quieter about five years ago.
The Illinois native and his wife moved from Chicago, where more than 2.7 million inhabitants crowd the urban streets, to Zumbrota, a rural area with a population of just more than 3,200.
"We were looking for some place quieter," Hill said. "We both really like the outdoors."
And as director of the Zumbrota public library, even his workplace stays relatively hushed.
