How do you Define Local?

What's local? Something assembled in your town or made from ingredients in your town? If something is created in your town and packaged elsewhere, is it less local than something that has ingredients shipped in but is "made" in your town.
When you ask someone (shop owner, waitress, etc.) what they have that's local, you get some interesting and varying answers.
It seems everyone has their own idea of what "local" really is. I think more people would make an effort to buy local if they realized there are so many variations of local that it's that easy to buy and support local businesses on at least some level.
