It seems in Baraboo,WI the cost keeps going up, but the jobs or pay don't.

The same could've been said about anywhere in the U.S. in 2009. We were in a recession people. Taxes are high, very true... But the jobs are out there for those that work hard and have an education. Even for those without a college education, you can make a pretty good living off of working in the Dells. Baraboo is a great place. Close to a ton of natural treasures (such as Devil's Lake) and other amusements. Not to mention only a 30 minute drive to the west side of Madison now a days with the improvements to Highway 12. Also, Julia, the cost of living in Baraboo is incredibly low compared to the national average.
