These are scary times. Unprecedented kids. The good folks at the Webb Weekly ask me to chime in each week. I usually write an article on something that deals with sports. But man, there really isn’t much to talk about. 

We have been without any professional play. MLB, MLS, the NHL, the NBA and the PGA Tour have all suspended their operations entirely. College sports are in the same boat. Not only did the NCAA cancel March Madness — they have postponed all of the spring seasons for all three divisions. The PIAA State Basketball Tournament has come to a halt. The braintrust of Harrisburg will need to make another decision here soon. Youth sporting organizations are also impacted. Little League Baseball encourages their charters to hold off all practices and games until this passes. 

These are serious times friends. Many of us aren’t afraid of becoming sick, but the entire sporting realm is in dire straits. We need sports to help us cope. It saddens me to relive and watch games from the 2016 Big East Tournament. It’s crazy to think how important sports are to our culture. You do not realize this until they are sadly gone. 

The Coronavirus has created many uncertainties. Not only with sports, but now our everyday lives in Lycoming County have been INFECTED. I went into work this morning to finish up a few things. Yes. I broke the law. Sorry Tom. My employer, Susquehanna Marble & Granite, decided to completely shut down. We are a small family run business consisting of 10 employees. We have suspended operations as required by the state to help combat the spread. This is a scary unprecedented situation and unfortunately, we do not know when we will return. I had to make several phone calls to relay this message. I have the gift of gab, but this was hard. Most folks got it. Very few did not. Many of our great customers were experiencing the same emotions. There are far more questions than answers right now. 

I feel terrible for the children within our community. Our area school districts are in a very challenging predicament. Some schools are equipped to go online, but the majority simply do not have the resources. What will we do? I don’t think we are going back anytime soon. Jensen is doing quite well with his assignments and activities. They are not of the curriculum. He is one of the lucky ones because he has access and two loving parents. Tough. 

My lovely bride is a teacher. I may be biased, but she is outstanding. She works with the little youngsters who need some additional guidance. Teach has been taking this hiatus very rough. She cares about her students and she misses them dearly. Mrs. Spencer got to reach out to several this morning. Not to provide instruction just to say hello. This meant the world to her. The same goes for her kids. 

Unchartered territory. I wish I had some more answers. I told you last week that this CORONAVIRUS is not a hoax. Please take the necessary precautions. Nothing will ever get back to normal unless we take these restrictions seriously. Stay at home. Cheers.
