My mom grew up there, and I spent a lot of time there as a kid visiting my grandpa, so I'm very familiar with it. Nothing is "wrong" exactly. It's just not a place that I could live, and seems a surprising place for Java development.

It's a town of less than 6 square miles with nothing but farmland for miles (and miles and miles). The population of less than 2,600 is almost 99% caucasian (with a disproportionately high level of senior citizens -- 31% compared to a national average of 12%) and is gradually decreasing at nearly 2% per year. The median household income is about 25% below the national average.
Glenwood compared to Minnesota state average:
  • Black race population percentage significantly below state average.
  • Hispanic race population percentage significantly below state average.
  • Median age significantly above state average.
  • Foreign-born population percentage significantly below state average.
  • Institutionalized population percentage significantly above state average.
  • Number of college students significantly below state average.
  • Also, the town is heavily conservative (based on the Federal Election Commission's report of political contributions over the past few years).

    Now I understand why those positions are for US citizens or permanent residents only. Foreign is kind of "not very welcome". Nato.

    Here's the real problem: Where would you get a decent cup of coffee?

    I could reply with the most obvious answer, but I'm wonder that I didn't understand your point. By the way, I don't know if I made myself clear, but I would like to work in a place(City/State), within of mixed culture. But it's me. Thanks, Nato.

    Me too, and that's why I couldn't live there. I was joking about the coffee. (Well, I mean it's probably true that you can't get a decent cup of coffee there, but that's obviously not the real problem.)
