A friend passed me this link recently, and at first I read the article and was impressed with the fresh thinking revitalizing this town.

But this morning I watched to video included in it - much richer telling of the tale, really brings together how all the parts fit, how different community members have each brought their own vision to a shop here, a hotel there, and bit by bit a forgotten village has become pretty cool.

30 minutes later I find myself daydreaming about the possibilities for so many small towns in California....

Step out of the echo chamber. News aggregators like this one let you see the headlines from multiple news sources at once.

Note where they differ. Note where they concur.

Reading mostly from a single new source marginalizes your thinking.

Read many. The greater variety you read, the quicker you'll learn to discern.
