"Follow the money." That famous, if fictitious, Watergate-era quote is a journalistic commandment. So, for this annual theme issue, we followed it. The paper (bill) trail led us to a range of retirement homes to see how the state is prepping for the aging baby boom generation. Across the lake, Plattsburgh is the first city in the U.S. to ban cryptocurrency mining. The logos for digi-dough models Bitcoin, Dogecoin and Ethereum are on the cover, BTW. In analog money news:Vermont farms are reimagining the CSA model, a Winooski educator is schooling kids in finances, artists generate DIY ways of making a living and we have flinty fun with the Frugalwoods family. Finally, if you've slacked on filing your 2017 taxes, get on it — and don't skirt the state's use tax.
