Lake Geneva has long been known as a golf destination.
But with the golf restrictions from the “safer at home” order being lifted, golfers will have a lot to celebrate on April 24th. Golf Courses are one of the few businesses that can reopen, but with tough restrictions, such as; fewer tee times, one person per hole, and no open pro shops or clubhouses. During these times it’s hard to find a place you can enjoy outdoors during the warm Spring days after being in your home day after day. Sometimes any open green space is needed and appreciated. Hopefully, golfers will appreciate and enjoy the courses as they open up. Also starting April 24th, non-essential businesses will be able to offer curbside pickup. Arts and crafts stores will be able to offer curbside pickup for materials to make masks and libraries will be able to also offer curbside pickup. Lawn care services will also be allowed as long as it is done by one person. Hopefully, more businesses will be able to offer their services sooner rather than later.
Cartoon Of The Week
There’s a protest, a really big and growing one, that is supposed to go down in Madison on Friday the 24th of this month.
The protest is an attempt to get Governor Evers to loosen the grip he has placed on the neck of Wisconsin’s economy. Currently, the governor has ordered that the stay at home program, including the closure of all non-essential businesses and services, continue until May 26th, over a month away. Many people are being hurt already, especially those who are not in line for a stimulus check or any kind of unemployment.
The Secretary of State of Wisconsin said these words, following the governor’s announcement last week: “Some people are going to lose their ability to pay their bills. Some people are going to lose their jobs. Some people are even going to lose their families. I want you to know that the governor and I, and the State of Wisconsin, appreciate the sacrifice of these people in order to save lives from the attack of the virus.” There are certainly going to be members of that protest group, expected to be in the thousands, that will find that statement unsettling, compassionate, and without good sense. Let’s all hope that this protest can be kept non-violent.
