“Health, prosperity, safety and security are all desirable aspects when it comes to seeking a place to live, work or raise a family. According to our fourth annual Most Secure U.S. Places to Live rankings from Farmers Insurance Group of Companies, the mid-size city that best meets those qualifications is Olympia, WA.,” quoting Yahoo.com.
“Olympia, WA. is the most secure mid-size city (population between 150,000 and 500,000). The state capital has become a hub for artists and musicians. The extremely clean air and the long life expectancy of Olympia’s residents aided its lofty ranking.”
While the aforementioned story was posted on Yahoo on September 28th, Bert Sperling wrote this story for his “Sperling’s Best Places” earlier this year, which was posted on the Thurston County Economic Development Council website on January 3, 2008.
“The Olympia area has moved up to eighth place nationally on Forbes magazines best places to do business list. South Sound was ranked 10th on last years list,” quoting The Olympian on the Yelm Community Blog in March of this year.
