It has potential


The piece in last week's issue of The Valley Reporter by Kara Herlihy, "Where have all the young people gone?," was provocative and could be very interesting, but it didn't read like an "article" so much as commentary, though it wasn't labeled as such. 

Is she going to do some think pieces and give her impressions? Is she going to do news analysis? Or is she going to include some demographic and economic research about the state of Vermont's economy relative to the rest of our country/world?

Whichever, it has the potential to be an interesting read.

Editor's Note: That story was the introduction to a three-part series of stories focusing on several aspects of why young people do not live in The Valley.
