This area is a very rural area with few career options other than retail, hospitality, food industry or agricultural. The current employment in this area consists of middle aged employees holding the stable jobs and the younger employees are left with only the retail and food industry jobs. Most of the high school graduates have to start their careers in a different part of the country where there are better opportunities and a larger selection of career fields.

Since it's a small community we do have a below average crime rate. The only known crime that I am aware of recently is the availablity of drugs. It's like any other tiwn, it's out there but generally speaking not a problem for the general population.
There are some job opportunities in this area, many require higher education. Lewisburg is the county seat. We have lawyers and judges that live here. The county hospital is in Fairlea. We have doctors, nurses, lab techs, food service and maintenance workers. The Greenbrier Hotel is in White Sulphur Springs. We have hospitality workers as well as security and grounds workers. Lewisburg is also the home of the local theater. We have actors, musicians and artists. We have local shops that are mostly family owned and employees are mostly family members. We have several fast food restaurants as well as locally owned establishments. There are golf courses and auto repair shops, car dealerships and real estate agencies. As you travel a little out of the local towns, we have farmland. That's where I have found employment for the past two summers. I have learned from one of the local veterinarians how to "farm". I enjoy the work and all that I have learned but know to earn a living, I will need to attend college.
