Letter: Why was Millbridge Speedway race OK?

Published 12:00 am Sunday, May 17, 2020

Everyone wants a return to normalcy as soon as possible. A lot of people are finding it difficult financially during this time of COVID-19.

Farmers are euthanizing stock they can’t sell or afford to feed. Dairies are pouring out milk. You can’t get a haircut; that’s an obvious need for most folks. You can’t go to a gym to work out even though the physical and metal benefits are well documented.

But some official thought it beneficial to the economic well-being of the county to issue a permit to Millbridge Speedway to produce a meaningless product and allow those oversized go-carts to race last week.

I really would like to know what genius thought that was a good idea and why.

There are more practical businesses that would like to open up and provide a useful service to the community at large.

On second thought, don’t bother with an explanation. The incredulity of the explanation would be anti-climactic to the incredulity of the act.
