Crook County continues to struggle with high unemployment, but one of the bright spots for the county is the addition of Facebook. Crook County Commissioner Seth Crawford says when Facebook opened its’ doors earlier this year, it was a real shot in the arm. It's given us a spotlight on our community, nationwide and almost  worldwide. In addition to that, they’ve helped our local businesses so much. They gave $1500 for a flag at the to of the grade and now that’s lit. So that will fly 365, 24/7. To the high school sports, all across the community.” There have been complaints that Facebook's Data Center only employs 40 people, but the construction involved 250 workers. The project also gained Prineville some exposure as a friendly place to do business.
