We’re all in this together

We still face a long road ahead, but we’ll get through this together.

The COVID-19 outbreak has hit us many ways, and I especially feel for people in the medical field, parents with kids or expecting children, other front-line workers, and finally, students, especially the older students who won’t get this year and memories back again.

We can get through this, but we have to continue to work together.  And, we’re starting to see a little more light at the end of the tunnel.

The cancellations keep coming; We Day Basketball game, the “Little Mermaid” musical, the BHS Jazz Concert and MIOSM Choir Concert, the annual Dance recital, the community Easter Egg hunt, the mock drill for students, Emerald Eve, Prom, and more.

Still up in the air are musical concerts in May, BHS and KMS graduation, spring sports, the Memorial Day parade, and much more yet to come.

Walz Making The Right Moves To Keep Us Safe

By Reed Anfinson
Publisher
Swift County Monitor-News

No one needs to tell us about the financial impact and pain caused by the shutdown of businesses in Minnesota in an effort to slow the spread of the coronavirus and the deadly COVID-19 respiratory disease it causes.

We see in it in the steep decline in our advertising revenue; we see in the need to lay off employees and cut the hours of others; we see it in the anxiety of the workers who continue to do their jobs to provide you news each week; we see it in the need to apply to the federal government for help in covering our payroll costs in the coming months; we see it in the need to ask our bankers if we can pay interest only on our mortgages; we feel it in the extended hours we are now working;  and we experience it in the sleepless nights when we wake up and can’t get back to sleep as we go over the threats to our financial security and try to figure out ways to address those threats.
