Divided America Urban Vs Rural
In this June 29, 2016 photo, Denver City Councilman Rafael Espinoza sits inside his home in Denver.

In this June 29, 2016 photo, patrons sit in a coffee shop in the trendy RINO neighborhood of Denver. The city is one of the fastest-growing in the nation, with a 3.3 percent unemployment rate and a housing market that has risen 45 percent since 2012. Once dependent on the energy industry for jobs, the city has diversified its economy enough that the recent downturn in fuel prices has barely hampered a booming economy powered by technology and health care jobs.

In this July 1, 2016 photo, Bill Hendren tends to goats on the property of a landowner who is allowing him to stay rent-free for a year in exchange for work, outside Manzanola, Colo.

In this July 1, 2016 photo, Bill Hendren tends to ducks on the property of a landowner who is allowing him to stay for a year in exchange for work, outside Manzanola, Colo. Hendren is effectively homeless. His pickup truck was stolen 18 months earlier. In a city this would be less of a problem because of public transportation, but in Otero County he can no longer perform the odd jobs at different farms and houses that had supported him for years.

In this June 29, 2016 photo, Denver City Councilman Rafael Espinoza stands outside his home in Denver, next to new homes on the left. Espinoza is an architect who was elected to Denver's city council last year as part of a group of candidates questioning the value of Denver's runaway growth. He has seen his neighborhood of modest bungalows occupied by largely Latino families abruptly transformed into a collection of condominiums housing affluent professionals. He worries that the character of the city has changed. (AP Photo/Brennan Linsley)

Hendren, 55, once worked in Texas nightclubs but there's nothing comparable in Otero County, where the largest town has a population of 6,900. "There ain't nothing here," he said. "There's nothing."
