  1. I wonder why AMF Town and Country Lanes had a higher fine than some of the other businesses. Maybe the Health Department does not like companies with lots of balls.

  2. These are NOT COVID violations. They are violations of edict. The virus has no authority. The willful destruction of our economic, social, and mental health to protect us from a virus is insane on its face. COVID will fade before long, as all viruses do. The negative impact on us caused by this Boone County imposed destruction will take a generation to heal from. If it ever happens.
