Small town. No jobs. Even if you have a bachelor's degree you usually work at walmart, part time. No benefits! Either you make too much to get benefits, such as medical or financial food help, or you live off the government and have no education to get a better job that won't work you enough to get benefits of money to buy a car or other things you need. Such as medical, food, or basic utilities.

Logan is a very small town that needs some help. It is prone to flash floods, and it's hard for the town to recover at times. I believe Logan needs a new entertainment center to have more enjoyment for the folks that live there.
As a young boy from the city, I found Logan County to be way out of my comfort zone. My mother had taken me and my sister there a few times when we were little but now we were at the point where she would drop us off to our grandparents, where we would reside for the summer. From the houses on the hillside, to there barely being a flat piece of last outside of the main road that went through the town, it was the most interesting thing I’ve ever seen. Compared to the city life, it was way different but something I could relate to was fishing and my Grandpa took me ever chance he got. Over the years of visiting a place that I’d grown to love so much, it gave me a peaceful feeling being in the mountains. It was like nothing else mattered when I was in town and was the best feeling in the world. Being able to walk right across the street and throw a fishing line into a river gave me great joy and this is why I call Logan County my second home.
