It seems very convenient to issue a new wide ranging Stay At Home order one month before the new Covid-19 vaccine is supposed to be rolled out.

Letter to the editor: Use resources wisely

Thank you for your front page gift of contrasting portrayals of two local women. I enjoyed this study in character and personality.
