In spite of the recent news headlines heralding our late sheriff's suicide while being investigating for drug trafficking, Douglas is a very low profile and safe place to live.
About 9,000 individuals call Douglas home. We are a family oriented community. I know many of these families into the third generation. I meet aquantances at virtually every public outing. We exchange nods and pleasantries at the grocery store, the bank and Walmart.
We have a community college, a progressive hospital and enough to industry to support our growing economy. If you're looking for a place to raise a family, Douglas just may be that place.
