Editor's Note: Janet Fitchen submitted a revised draft of this manuscript a few days before it was discovered that she was gravely ill; she died a few months later. This journal and the Rural Sociological Society benefited from her insight in many ways. What I'll remember is her unselfish assistance to Rural Sociology. I asked her to be an associate editor, but she declined because she was concerned that other responsibilities would not allow the time necessary to act as a referee as frequently as I requested. Yet she always reviewed papers whenever-I asked; what's more, her reviews were thorough, thoughtful, and contained a hopeful attitude appreciated by authors. She wrote the remainder of this note, in which her interest in others is obvious: An earlier version of tins paper was presented at the 1994 meeting of the Rural Sociological Society in Portland, OR. The research in New York was conducted with support from the Ford Foundation through the Aspen Institute's Rural Economic Policy Program. I am indebted to community residents for sharing data and observations and to anonymous reviewers for helpful suggestions.
