COVID-19: Why are so few wearing masks in public?

Question to the LCDHD staff at a recent public meeting about how few are wearing masks in public: Have officials decided that the economy and public outcry against closures will rule the day OR is the virus just not as dangerous as some reports and experts seem to imply?

Answer: We are seeing increase in numbers and have seen four churches become affected. We still strongly encourage people to avoid crowds, wear a mask when you are out, stay socially distanced, and wash your hands frequently.

Understanding that there is widespread complacency on following the guidance, and understanding the health department has limited enforcement authority, we strongly recommend that everyone interested in protecting themselves and their families follow the guidance of social distancing - staying 6 feet from others; avoiding crowds; staying home if you are sick (fever or coughing); washing your hand thoroughly and often; and increasing your sanitation practices. We also strongly encourage the population at large to wear masks to protect others.

Carol Perkins: Many have helped with raccoon invasion

Previous Column: In need of rescue

By Carol Perkins

In the last several weeks, I have been "bellyaching" about raccoons. Not only have they invaded our home, they have also shut down two sections of our county's electrical supply. When a raccoon can manage to electrocute himself, he is looking in the wrong place for food.

In desperation, we have tried many avenues to get rid of them and still feed our birds, but they continued to appear at night, sometimes looking in the window as if they expect to be invited inside. The only way to get them out of sight is to open the back door. That only lasted long enough for the door to close.

One of my good friends suggested bringing over her collection of snakes. Rubber snakes. They had served her well in ridding her property of unwanted pests, so she researched their effect on raccoons. As expected, raccoons don't buddy around with snakes. Linda brought over her snakes, and even when we laid them on the kitchen table, I jumped. I have never seen such realistic "toys."
