Everywhere I go, the vast majority of people are masked. Evidently, they don’t work.

“NEW DAILY RECORD”…wowo is quickly becoming disgraceful in their reporting.

If only WOWO would report Allen County’s death rate….0.0% (7-day average). There hasn’t even been a death in Allen County since September, but yet, they want you to equate # of cases to deaths & be scarred that the number of cases is going up.
