In terms of religious, racial, economic and cultural diversity, are the people of this city or town diverse? Are they accepting of differences? Describe.

99.9% white. The goofy, wholesome midwestern vibe is in full effect. People are very liberal, however. They nominated Jesse Ventura for god sakes. That's basically the biggest civic rebellion of recent history. Lots of gay clubs and punks, though. Pretty strong artsy/music subculture. PS. I think Jesse's cool.

What are the main industries in this city? What types of career opportunities commonly exist? How do most people find new jobs?

Advertising. Banking. General Mills. Cargill. Retail: Best Buy. Target.

In general, what are peoples' priorities in this city? For example, do lives revolve around work, family, socializing, sports, etc.?

Hardworking, nose to the grindstone in Winter. Can't wait to get outside in Summer. Amazing facilities for outdoor recreation. Family oriented, wholesome, down-to-earth.

If a friend of yours was thinking of moving to this city or town from far away, what other advice would you give them.

Not a good place for a young person who wants to rock it at the bars every night and meet others. Much better for a young couple who wants a house, yard, family, dog...but still wants some of that city stuff: Nightlife, industry, restaurants, pro sports, concerts. Better be ready for some serious weather. - 50 with windchill in the winter. Summer is heaven on earth, though. There are places to park your car.
