Are their any elderly individuals in the area that need some items and don’t want to get out? I can free of charge go get what they need pending I can find it and bring to them. All I would need is cash or check equal to the amount of the bill at delivery. I hate to think anyone in the community is afraid to go out and needed something.
Why did we not get a notice from the Carroll County Mayor that the first case of the flu this year has been documented? It kills a lot more people than this stupid overblown coronavirus kills. If you did not get the recommended Tamaflu shot then they cannot do nothing but send you home with antibiotics if you have the flu. There is no cure and old people die of it. Even people who get the flu shot still get it. This is crazy. It is meant to cause fear and there is a more sinister agenda with this Covid-19. Wake up people. We are being controlled. I never have taken the flu shot and never will. I have never gotten the flu because I have always washed my hands and kept my distance from sick people. Common sense.
I just moved to this area and have no idea about things to do places to go etc. any recommendations?
