Dr.Greg Thompson said this (and he is right): …Hope is on the horizon, but it will still be months for a vaccine to be distributed widely. We need to keep infections, hospitalizations, and deaths down until then. That means wearing masks and distancing. I know it is exhausting, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Let’s get through the tunnel.

Hospitals are already being overwhelmed throughout the Midwest and Texas and this wave is climbing fast. When hospitals fill up, mortality climbs…. Let’s please hold on a bit longer and try not to overwhelm the healthcare systems before we have our most potent tool ready to stop this virus. Mask, distance, be responsible.  ~Frank James MD


[From the Bellingham Herald] Whatcom County set a new record for the highest number of new COVID-19 cases reported in a single day today, Sunday Nov 14: 48 new cases just today. And Friday, Nov. 13,  the Washington State Department of Health data showed an additional 46 residents had tested positive. The 46 new cases come one day after 39 were reported Thursday — but that total represented two days, after no data was released Wednesday in observance of Veterans Day. Whatcom’s previous single-day record for new cases reported was 33 on June 24.


[From the Bellingham Herald] Gov. Jay Inslee issued a travel advisory for Washington yesterday, recommending a 14-day quarantine for interstate and international travel and asks residents to stay close to home….

“COVID-19 cases have doubled in Washington over the past two weeks. This puts our state in as dangerous a position today as we were in March… COVID-19 does not stop at state lines. The best way to keep your family safe is to stay close to home. … travel advisories recommend individuals limit their interactions to their immediate household.

With the records in new cases, deaths and hospitalizations nationally, here is a hospitalization chart that makes the increase vivid.


 This tells you the risk associated with getting a disease that could kill you OR that if you give it to the ones you love that they could die or get a chronic condition that might last a life time.  ~ Frank James MD


There’s a little bit of trimmings left for garland, but we also rented a chipper today and turned most of it to mulch….so, is anyone ready to cover their gardens for the winter?! Spruce keeps bugs away and there’s plenty of it! Corner of Connecticut and Williams.  ~ Beth McGinty


To Justin Johnson (806) 500-6911. We hopefully ‘saved’ our 3-yr-old fridge from the landfill! So far so good! Justin was amazing. We called him b/c of an earlier post on this website. If your appliance is ailing give him a call. ~ Jennifer Dannenberg


I am looking for a person who could make 2 curtains – very basic just to cover some open shelving. About 33″ x 36″ – I have the cotton fabric washed and ready to go. Open on pricing. ~ Kim Rice,, Henry Street


I just discovered someone stole our trailer’s battery, which was in the front yard. Brazen! The trailer is parked out front. The new(!) propane tanks were left behind. It happened most likely Thursday night, and we have a really loud, barky dog who never heard a thing! We live in the 3000 block of Walnut St. ~ Candice Munson


I found a skateboard on my property and am hoping to find it’s owner: Found on Monroe Street.  Kryptonics brand. Orange wheels, floral pattern.  ~ Michelle Jacobs, Victor Street,
