RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
I live in a rural town but not in Eastern Oregon; I live in Drain. We used to be a big timber town. We don't have public transportation like much of the rest of Douglas County.
People get by but if they don't own their own vehicle, people have trouble getting around. There is ONE doctor in town and a dentist is sorely needed here based on some who are toothless.
A lot of the community is on some sort of government assistance, whether it be food stamps, federal disability or Social Security. Many young people graduate from high school and soon leave.
Boy, could we benefit from industry!
