Thanks for posting these daily Hamilton County statistics to ERNO. I’ve looked at the link where it has the numbers. My question is: “What do these numbers indicate for Hamilton County citizens?” Is this good, bad, average, or excellent?
I wish an official would in Hamilton County would give us something other than statistics.
If I’m looking at the statistics correctly, Hamilton County’s numbers look very good. I wish someone would tell us if we are doing a “good job” by voluntarily shutting down small businesses, churches, and restaurants while government officials, employees, and staff continue to receive salaries, benefits, and pensions. Throw us a bone and please quit treating the citizens like non-essential fluff.
There’s a lot of “hero” talk these days if someone wears a pair of scrubs and for good reasons in some cases, but if you ask me, the real heroes are everyday mom and pop businesses that shuttered their stores and restaurants and then they drive by packed parking lots for Wal-Mart and Target. Drive thru lines out in the parking lots of Chic-Fil-A and McDonalds, while mom and pop try to figure out how to pay their next rent payment.
And there are the heroes in our local ministries. Churches were the first places to VOLUNTARILY close their doors. No politician government body told them to close their doors, but they did. Pastors and church leaders are scrambling to minister to their churches, help the needy, and pray continually for healing all the while keeping the doors closed and taking a big hit on tithing.
Again, just a question though for now on what the statistics mean in a bigger picture for our community and what are the expectations for the weeks to come?
