    Compared to big cities, this town is safe and friendly. In town, there are volunteer opportunities, entertainment, and many churches. We are a growing community, both with new residents and new businesses.

    The crime rate has been increasing lately, but it is still a relatively safe environment. For example, I do not worry about leaving my keys in my car. There is a problem with drugs and stealing, but the police work very hard to protect the community.

    I have went to school in Blair and lived in Blair my whole life. The Blair community is very tight knit and cares for one another. The town has both urban and rural living which is what small towns have and I think it is helpful to grow up in a small town.
