I have lived in the same town my entire life in Eureka, CA. I can't handle the liberal mentality enabling the overwhelming homeless population in my hometown. Also, the high cost of living and the high crime rate is unbearable. I want a safe, clean, friendly small town to raise my 11 year old daughter. I am able to pay cash for a $230,000 home. I will need a job. I have no specific skill: jack of all trades, master of none. I see there are decent places to find an entry level job at SDSU, Bel Brand, or 3M. As long as I have a job inside, I can handle the cold weather. I see the schools are great for middle school and high school. My daughter has been home schooled her entire life. We are ready to enroll her in public school. My wife has a major concern of the chemicals used on the local farms. Is there a problem with the chemicals drifting over the city? Also, what are the options for organic food in Brookings? Any information about your city would be greatly appreciated.

Happy hour apparently starts at 4:37 pm for 601halfdozentheother and/or extreme sarcasm applies. Brookings is a fine town, chemicals don't waft over the city or anywhere, there is a growing organic farm industry. In general, the opposite of liberalism, except possibly for an influence from the state university. Many jobs I think because they have quite a bit of industry for its size. The issue may be your salary requirements if you don't have a specific skill or training.

The corn/soybean farming is the prevalent crop in the area and they use "chemicals" I suppose. That word sounds so bad but it doesn't become airborne and most of it breaks down in the soil. The nitrogen fertilizer that they use can cause high nitrate levels in lakes/rivers. I don't think it gets into the drinking water or at least it's tested regularly for that.

You can try contacting these folks to see if there are health issues from chemicals in the area:

If you could post information you get from them on this thread I'm sure it will be valuable to others in the future.

Good luck!
