Hobby Lobby thinks the rules don't apply to them.

They are defying orders given by multiple state Governors to close.  They keep opening back up even though they are not an essential business.  Police have been called to shutter stores in some cases and state attorney general’s offices have been forced to send a cease-and-desist letter instructing Hobby Lobby to close.  States  where they have not followed orders include : Colorado, N. Carolina, Ohio, WI, and Indiana.  

I hope the police send them a bill.  I hope the states fine them.  We have other major issues  to put our limited time and resources.  This is so egotistical and wrong.

Here is a copy of a March 2020 letter sent to their employees..they have been quite controversial many times...especially as pertains to their female employees. All I can say in response to their crap is "Ye shall know them by their fruits" knowing that many companies such as this...will be losing customers in the coming days due to their actions now.

The Quebec government is calling for all festivals and public sporting and cultural events in the province to be cancelled until Aug. 31.

AUGUST 31st!!!

California was the first US state to go on a lockdown.  That was March 19th. It hasn't been a month and they just extended the order until May 15th.  

 It is going to be a long summer if the rest of N. America follows Quebec.  I wonder what that will mean for schools and universities?

My friend's son attends U Miami. He lives off campus and so has remained in Miami. He told his mother that they're already being told that Fall semester will most likely NOT be in person.

Crap.

Online does not work for music majors.  They can't do ensembles which are half the classes my daughter takes. She is a senior next year.  She wasn't able to do performances with her percussion ensemble this year (they were scheduled for the last part of the semester) and half her performances for the orchestra/band ensembles.  Then there is her senior recital...

I guess we will wait and see.

In her case it may make sense to take a leave for the year, and try again Sept 2021. By then schools should be able to resume fully.

It may.  

She did however already sign a new lease beginning in June ( it was signed in February for June) And her scholarship is contingent of 4 consecutive years of school.  She loses it if she misses a term.  I guess we shall see what happens.  The University originally did not want to refund any money for those currently in University housing at even a pro-rated amount of unused housing and meals (this did not apply to her but tells me they. might not allow a pass regarding the scholarship ). They only gave credit/ refunds after much protest and only at around 10% of funds back.

Well, see how things play out.

A leave of absence requires an excuse - like a family health issue, or mental illness or other disability, so maybe the scholarship could continue.

You may have to organize other parents via virtual means. Remind the school that she and others may choose to take her money elsewhere because it's more affordable.

NoLa JazzFest 2020 was officially cancelled just this past week. They said they'll offer refunds, but so far it's still a struggle with the credit card...grrrr...

I just joined to be able to post, but I've been reading this site for years! Maybe this isn't the right place to ask this? Any ideas when music concerts will be back in the US? I really miss them 🙁

@michellepazicni  I noticed that a concert was held in a drive-in movie format.  I hoped it would bring people back.

Looking like the governor and people of North Carolina have canceled the Republican Convention!

Good for them. Sorry for the people wherever it ends up.

Our not so illustrious Governor Kemp is courting favor with the Present Lump trying to get it here. Which usually means Atlanta. Hmmmm.. .. yeah... not a good idea...sit down and shut up Kemp, go back to making eyes at Kelly.

Wouldn't it be funny if no one let the Fascist Orangepop hold his hate rally/party in their state?

It will be interesting to see what happens. If a Governor wants to Host, I still think a mayor opposed might find a way to stop it.  That would be the case in Phoenix.  No way would the Phoenix mayor be ok with that. I mean, baseball isn’t happening yet and that is mostly an outdoor , no roof game.

Agreed and Keisha Lance Bottoms has done an exemplary job of protecting her city and people and will continue to do so.

24 Hour Fitness is filing for bankruptcy because of the pandemic.  They are re-organizing and will be smaller.  They say the pandemic is the only reason for the need to file.  

Any guesses on who is next?

Postponement!

Due to the pandemic,  The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will delay the 2021 Oscars ceremony to April 25 from February 28 and extend the eligibility window to be more flexible for filmmakers.

The opening of the Academy Museum, which was finally set to open in December will also be pushed back to April 30.

As you may be aware, AZ has a huge spike in covid cases.  Well, a school district near where I live has just canceled graduation ceremonies, for the second time.  Here is their letter informing their students:  

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the cancellation of our graduation ceremonies that were rescheduled to take place June 25, 26 and 27. Given the increase in COVID-19 cases, we have determined it is not in the best interest of our students, staff, parents and community to proceed with these events.

As we shared in our recent survey communication, the Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS) has released guidance recommending that mass events, specifically graduations, do not take place at this time. We received this guidance at the beginning of June but were hopeful that our state would begin to see a decline in cases. As recently as this morning, we reached out to the county again to see if the guidance had changed and unfortunately, it has not.

Safety has always been our first priority and we do not feel we can in good conscience proceed with an event that may jeopardize the health and well-being of our graduates, families and staff. We are devastated that we will not be able to celebrate our graduates for their achievements in the way we had originally planned and in the way that they deserve. We will remember the Class of 2020 fondly, and we know that they will continue to impact the world with a legacy beyond our current pandemic.

HA !!!

Our outdoor band rehearsal in mid-afternoon got shut down by police! CANCELLED!!!
At least we got a couple hours of practice in...

Most neighbors are appreciative of the music, and we do it outside to socially distance a bit and let the sun and wind protect us, too. Pretty sure it was people on the other side of the canyon and not on our actual block.

Apparently here in America's Finest City, if TWO neighbors actually sign a paper complaint, the cops can shut us down.  They've been called to our rehearsals before (a few years ago, actually), and usually just check to make sure nothing illegal, say "Rock on!" and leave. I guess the law here has changed.

I think we should have MORE rehearsals, which will make those people have to call the cops every time. I think on non-rehearsal days, we should blast some opera and classical music at top volume thru our amps, since apparently we are not their cup of tea.

I've just about had it with people. I'm disliking city living more and more with each day, and I'm starting to feel trapped - not on my own property so much or inside my house, but trapped in a city that has way more assholes than I thought it did when we moved here.

We're going to check with a lawyer (First Amendment, anyone?), and also ask the city if there is some kind of non-commercial, b.s. noise permit we could pay them for. Mind you, there were, prior to the pandemic, fireworks on a weekly basis downtown, and EVERY NIGHT at 9:50pm were the very loud SeaWorld Fireworks, which everyone in a 10 mile radius can here (it's 4 miles from my house, we can even see them if we are on a second floor of a neighbor's house and).

My grandma confirmed that we will not celebrate her birthday dine-in and that the visit to my grandpa's grave in Westchester will not happen in late October.
