  1. prayers are with this individual, family and all the previous.
    serious question. how many people died of the flu each and every year in Mendo county for the previous 10 years prior to c-19?

  2. According to Mendocino County Health Status Profile for 2018 the average number of yearly deaths coded influenza/pneumonia in the years 2014 to 2018 was just above 16. Your question made me curious so I looked it up

  3. *Announcer Voice*
    Oh no, ladies and gentlemen, his point–whatever poorly executed piece of propaganda that was, was just shoved against the bulkhead and shot AGAIN!
    It’s almost as if he lazily sprayed some propaganda musk to use the memory of a woman who recently died hoping to pull in fellow covidiot virus deniers and antivaxers to a place that is a bit obscene for spreading political beliefs.
    Bravo, bravo, you win the scumbag of the day award.
    Or maybe he’s just an idiot. Whatever, night night.

I like to think of myself as a reporter for the Average Joe. Journalism has become a craft defined largely by city dwellers on America's coasts. It’s time to take it back. I have been an Emerald Triangle resident since 2006 and this is year ten in Mendocino County. Please, email me at matthewplafever@gmail.com if you know a story that needs to be told.
