Around the country, local governments say they're trying to ward off the spread of coronavirus by instituting shelter-in-place order, but Kerrville Mayor Bill Blackburn and Kerr County Judge Rob Kelly are worried the impact that would have on the local economy. How do you feel?

Time for the DPS to shift gears. IH-10 is full of Louisiana license plates. Interstate travelers are supposed to quarantine for 14 days. Meanwhile DPS is running radar. Time to enforce the Governor's orders.


The economy is suffering now, but what is worse people dying or money! This virus will continue to spread unless people stay at home. It is probably in Kerr County now, how will we know for sure without testing?


I think most people are already sheltering in place except for curb side pick up for grocery and food take out, and this is as it should be. The same small groups working only together and staying home other wise protects them and protects us.

Just got back from picking up a curbside order at Walmart. There were way too many cars in the parking lot ... please do curbside so you can stay in your car!
