The morning blog 2-28-2021:

By CRAIG HALL

Good morning and welcome to the Ledger/LCJ morning blog for the last day of February for 2021.

Hopefully, in the years coming up we can look back and say this was the month when coronavirus started slip sliding away, kind of like the song by the Paul Simon, without Garfunkel.

Today’s blog is sponsored by Central National Bank with branches in Heavener, Panama, Pocola, Poteau and Stigler.

I’m Craig Hall, the Ledger/LCJ publisher.

Thanks again for reading. If you like it, please share it with anybody you think might be interested. If you aren’t impressed keep that between us and let me know how to improve it.
