North Fork Shares Wealth with Its Own Currency

The Fesno Bee - Bethany Clough - Something unusual is happening in the mountain town of North Fork: People
are printing their own money.

Hoping to boost the Madera County community's economy and keep all of its
wealth from rolling downhill to Fresno, a group of residents has created a
local currency. Organizers also hope the project will encourage neighbors to
become more engaged with one another.
