Poetry by Robert Stone: If you choose whole truth

A word list sonnet for Poetry in the Boro
All storytellers make words effervesce
in anecdotal corkscrew dancing webs,
strands woven in abundance never less
than sand on shore revealed when water ebbs.

A menos que quieras do not tell
the rougher, meaner parts of history,
but if you choose whole truth then speak it well
so silken threads that bind are plain to see.

Repeated executions of worn plans
that were successful many times before
are but one half of life’s cannots and cans
so seek the weak the less, the strong the more.

Your comfort comes from hearing well-loved tales
remembering old comforts with details.
- Robert Stone, 9 January 2021

LCDHD COVID-19 Public Information Brief 1/9/2021

By Amy Tomlinson
Lake Cumberland District Health Department

We are glad to have ended the week with two days of no COVID-19 related deaths. However, at the state and local level, we experienced a sharp spike in new cases compared to last week. Locally, we 1,493 new cases this week compared to 1,006 last week. Last Saturday we had 861 active cases, today, 1,103. We experienced 10 deaths this week. Last Saturday, we had 61 cases hospitalized, today, 65.

With cases on the rise, let's all do our part in slowing the spread of COVID-19 by wearing our face coverings, avoiding crowds (especially in confined spaces), social distancing when around others, increasing our hand hygiene, increasing our general sanitation, and by avoiding the touching of our faces.

COVID-19 Vaccination Update
LCDHD is currently operating in Phase 1a of our COVID-19 vaccine distribution plan. This includes vaccines for healthcare workers and first responders. We are not pre-registering for future vaccination phases at this time, as vaccines are not readily available. Please follow this website and the LCDHD social media sites such as Facebook for details about future vaccine availability once additional vaccine is received. Also, don't forget about the contract with Walgreens and CVS pharmacies to vaccinate the long-term care facilities and personal care homes -- residents and staff.

We still aren't sure when the state will authorize us to start ordering Phase 1b vaccine for the seventy and older age group. Monitor our Daily Brief and social media for breaking information.
