I am both happy and leery to see things open back up. And I agree that going back to normal isn’t going to happen very soon. I also believe that people should still be cautious when going out to shop or eat and that that decision should be left up to us.

The City of Yankton and the county both did an excellent job over the past few weeks of fighting this thing and so did Gov. Noem and President Trump.

Prayerfully let’s hope we are seeing the end of this mysterious disease.

Mr. Dale, it’s just a bit too early for you to dismiss the threat of the coronavirus to the lives of you, your family and your friends.

The president is mandating that all meatpacking plants remain open despite the lack of testing and adequate safety measures. So throughout rural America these fertile seed beds of the coronavirus will continue to expand the pandemic that you have not escaped yet.

You're going to need more than prayer to protect the ones you love.


Kim Dale appears to be a certified card-carrying member of the Dump Death Cult. Totally cool with people dying in the name of the Dump economy.
