NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — A long-forgotten monument from the class of 1966 was rededicated on Friday as part of the Drury High School class's 50th reunion.

The gift to Drury featured an engraving of the Eternal Flame and the quote by John F. Kennedy "Ask not what your country can do for you - ask what you can do for your country."

But the fact that there was a monument was a surprise to many of the class members, including the two representatives who were pictured in the local newspapers attending a dedication ceremony on Memorial Day in 1967.

"No one remembered it. No one remembered its origin," said class member Donna Bona Morgan, who then laughed,

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — In just a few short years, college students will be graduated, looking for work, buying a home, having children, and pay off loads of student debt.

But right now they aren't thinking of that, at least not in the political sense.

The 18- to 29-year-old age bracket votes at a much lower rate than older generations. And because of that, it is easier for politicians to craft their views around the population that put them in office — ignoring the issues of the young.
