Nice to see you trying to engage some youth's interest in a community newspaper.Now please make some attempt to engage an entire community in participating in the upcoming municipal election. Do you actually believe you are providing more than lip service regarding this issue when their have been merely two arcticles in this paper in the last month regarding this all important issue. Counter if you will ,that it is not your place to create the news,but what it is the point of having a community editorial board with guest columnists ,if you are not willing to do daily "man/woman on the street" polls,call a candidate or two each day to see if they might have something to voice,try and generate a groundswell of public participation in municiple governance. OR,don't bother,continue to contribute to the "we've always done it this way " attitude,that keeps this town only militant when it comes to change and full of a striving to be adequate ideal that refutes BIG ideas.

Great job Carl, people are always saying this and that about our youth with out ever trying to make a difference. Carl, by you meeting with these students, gives them a roll model to look up to and seek advice on career choices etc. Just think, maybe a few will stay and work someday for you and your paper. Thanks for stepping up.
