We need to give our children a reason to return to our communities!
Embarassed This area needs to give our children more. When we provide jobs for our children they return. Best example is in the medical field. Let's spend our children's future on them and produce jobs so our children return to our communities.

The following article says it all:

Western Minn. counties remain the state's oldest









MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - New figures from the Census Bureau show some
counties along Minnesota's western border are among the oldest in
nation.
Traverse, Big Stone and Lincoln counties are among the about two
dozen counties in the nation that had at least one-quarter of their
populations 65 or older on July 1, 2007.
Traverse was at 28 percent while Big Stone and Lincoln were at 25
percent. Aitkin (AY'-kin) County in central Minnesota also had a
quarter of its population at 65 and over.
Also among the oldest counties in the state were Kittson, Lac qui Parle (lak kwih parl) and Murray.
Rural counties throughout the nation have been struggling for years
with declining, aging populations as young people grow up and move away
seeking better jobs.
On the flip side, counties with the highest percentage of their
population at 5 years old or younger tend to be on the far western edge
of the Twin Cities. Wright and Scott counties were the highest at 9
percent.
