It would be great if we had a newspaper that were a website that would connect all local events so people who live here can find more things to do at night and during the weekends with their family and their dates.

The general atmosphere isn't the most welcoming depending on what part of Oregon you're in, but it the same with most other states. I would choose to live here again if I could do it all over. I enjoy living in the more rural part of Oregon; I don't especially like big cities. This area is pleasant to live in. We have a variety of weather that keeps the area from feeling stagnant. More large corporations are beginning to move into this area, and I hope this will come to a stop soon. Our community thrives from the amount of small businesses we have.
