I don’t think we should focus on keeping young people here immediately after graduation. I think we should focus on what we can do to make them want to come back.

Jobs, plain and simple. That’s all I can say. Anything and everything is so tight. Look at Westport — it’s almost dead. People graduate and move away. They never come back. It’s the same all over.

I think more people can use computers to stay up here and seem to be doing that. I think there are quite a few young people coming up here. You just have to get them to stay.

They need jobs, it is really hard to find a good paying job here.

There was more available for me growing up in the 60’s in Ticonderoga than there is for a teenager now. This community needs to find other ways to interest youth with activities.
