Struggling to survive

By Jhane Reifsteck—The town of Longview has faced a high povery rate and loss of business in recent years.

In the 2000 Census, Longview's povery rate was just over 15 percent, with 25 of the 160 residents living at or below the poverty level.

This was a large increase from the 1990 Census when the town's poverty rate was 8.5 percent.

CU-Citizen Access contributor Jhane Reifsteck takes an in-depth look at the town that's struggling to survive.
