The Hole Scroll

Once a year, we put out the Hole Health special section, and it is a lot of work. Regular news still happens, and I have to balance editing the section and writing any last-minute stories with my day job. Suffice to say, I'm pretty excited to take a couple days off this week.

But I had the opportunity to talk again with Anthony Parker, the man I wrote about almost a year ago when he left the hospital after an 88-day stay because of a COVID-19 infection. Back then, he was weak, tired, and unable to really dig into his experience with me.

Now, he's much stronger, and he makes a lot of jokes. He even pulled out a "Casper the Friendly Ghost" reference, bringing up a show I hadn't thought about in years. He genuinely seems happy to be alive, and I'm grateful he and other COVID-19 survivors let us into their recovery.

As Parker gets better from COVID, the county restrictions are also easing. With case numbers low, the mask order could be lifted Friday, though health officials say face coverings are still important tool, even if a government mandate is no longer appropriate.

Hope you all enjoy the Hole Health section; it's on newsstands all week. It'd be a great thing to spend Sunday morning with. — Tom
