Yeh thats my forum, sites going through a lot of changes right now.
Bunratty Meade is really good! We have some homebrewers that brew some of the best Meade's you will taste IMHO.
Economy wise Clayton is pretty stable, not sure if you need to work or not. With the prison here I think its going to be stable for a long time to come. Whether it grows or not is something I cant tell. A lot of old guard in on the important positions so one would say we wont see another major growth spurt untill they are gone.
Were not much of a prison town vs what I have seen and heard of other towns with a prison.
Good news is the Eklund finally opened up again, so we will have a bar again! We have a VFW and an Elks Lodge which serve beer but are not what I would class as a bar.
Crime wise, we dont really have that big a problem. We have Meth like every other town but dont really have the crime to go along with it. Ive been here since 2002 straight and only had one incident at my house and that was a few weeks ago. Dude tried to enter my house when he thought we were asleep I guess but it wasnt nothing a riled up Staffordshire Bull Terrier couldnt take care of while I got equipped hehe. Not really a big deal.
House wise you can check Clayton NM real estate listings and homes for sale, home buying, home selling information
for houses, many have been on the market for a while. There are some fantastic deals to be had on houses but there are also some house prices that make you think WTF they are so high.
If you dont mind having to drive to get some essentials or order it online then its not too bad.
I am pretty sure they are still going ahead with a wind farm for Union and Harding County. Its pretty windy here which is one of my biggest drawbacks personally. Nasa's first wind turbine was here in Clayton which shows you how windy it gets and how constant it can be.
