Portola Hills Employment Rate is 96.1%

I was reading an article today that caught my attention on the O.C. Register. The reason it caught my attention is because it was in a sense trying to be positive yet it's very nature was negative. I have posted before, that the media only focus is bad news so it doesn't surprise me, but as the article mentioned Portola Hills, I thought I would put a positive spin on it. The article "What's the jobless rate in your O.C. city " notes that the most recent Orange County unemployment rate is 7.9% and then breaks it down by city. For Portola Hills that rate is 3.9%.

In these difficult times, focus on the Possibilities.
