What is the city's history? Who founded it and when? How did it get its name? Who were the leading settlers? What were crucial events in the city's history? What does the city's history say about its present and suggest about its future?
Who are its people? What are their geographic and ethnic roots? What is the city's demographic profile? Where do people live? Is there segregation by race, ethnicity or age? Discrimination? Are segments of the population frustrated? Involved? Angry?
These are really good questions to think about....very important guidelines for which stories are most important to cover for the community
