DETOUR > US 66

I just noticed that FOUR out of "Top Ten" stories in this paper were about the Kung Flu and that is pathetic. Why does this paper have to be OCD about this disease. I'm guessing a lot more people are "sick" of READING about it than actually sick FROM it. Can't you find anything else of local interest to publish? and on that topic why in the world does Mojave Valley need a Morning and Evening edition anyway. From what I read here, one paper a week would be plenty considering the number of "new" stories.

The majority of these covid cases can be traced back to Memorial Day weekend and July 4th. Hundreds of out of towners were not wearing mask or social distancing. Regarding Arizona don’t forget how the governor of Arizona a Trump lapdog overruled both the mayor of Phoenix and Tucson that wanted mandatory mask in May.

DETOUR > US 66

The only thing masks really "prevent" is the person wearing them to be able to BREATHE properly. No mask but stay 15 feet away from everybody and nobody gets sick.
