Alarming. The biggest one day jump in COVID cases since the start of the pandemic. We don't know if our schools can open. Cases are spiking in 24 U.S. states. But, hey, let's host the bass fishermen from all over the country in Clayton.

Where is the leadership? Absent in Washington and Jefferson county.

An American tragedy. A Jefferson county tragedy.


Results from 4th of July celebrations... mandated masks should turn this around..... hosting the bass classic is a mistake...flies in the face of everything we're being told..
