Virus notes: July 1, 2020; Consequences

MERCED (BLJ) – The Merced County Public Health Department on June 30 reported 1,064 Covid-19 cases (240 new since June 26) and 11 deaths. On July 1, the case number was up to 1,131 (67 new); deaths remain the same at 11.

 

Like so many American communities during this pandemic, some of our leaders became public enemies, and some other “leaders”  followed along. The result is that local government is now unable to control the spread of the virus.

The Merced Way: defund Parks&Rec to pay cops

We were reminded of past malfeasance in the City of Merced against the Parks and Recreation Department while watching the June 15 meeting of the City Council. A number of speakers from South Merced denounced city staff and elected officials for plundering the department to backfill the police budget.

 

This is an old game in Merced. Whenever budget shortfalls arrive, parks and rec are sure to suffer.
