    Has anybody seen a price comparison of COVID vaccine at the different locations? A friend of mine got the first shot at CG Public Health, and got a bill for $630.00!! They didn’t even ask to see an insurance card, so is this the price uninsured county residents pay?? WTH?!

        Are you on Medicaid or Medicare? Those patients get it free. If you have insurance, that pays for most of it. If you don’t fall into either category, they’re billing you. I saw the bill myself. Hope it’s a mistake, but so far they’re not owning up to that.

          When I got my shots at the old Sears absolutely no one was asked about insurance. They wouldn’t have had a clue whether I had medicare since I was never asked. My wife has blue cross and was never asked.

          It would have been impossible to bill the insurance companies since CG PH had zero information on our insurance status.

          Maybe your friend was billed for the covid test if he took one. But any bill for the shots should be disputed.

        I am on Medicare and wasn’t charged for my shot from our County Health Department. My wife isn’t on Medicare and she wasn’t charged either from the same County Health Department. If you were charged $600, you need to contact the police department.

    To summarize: Trump’s campaign chair and deputy campaign chair provided an internal strategy memo and private polling to a Russian agent who then passed it onto Russian intelligence agencies. The Kremlin then used that information to try to help Trump win the 2016 election.

      Disney did not buy Fox. You low information trumpettes need to get your sh*t together and have someone explain the news to you. Disney bought 20th Century Fox. Fox Sports and Fox Broadcasting join Fox News as assets that will help make up Fox Corporation — which is officially a stand-alone, publicly-traded company. It will begin trading on NASDAQ under the FOXA and FOX symbols. The company announced that former House Speaker Paul Ryan will join its board alongside Jacques Nasser and controlling shareholders founder Rupert Murdoch and CEO and chairman Lachlan Murdoch.

      This price shock is a classic example of the supply and demand curve. On one hand supply has fallen as a result of COVID-19 restrictions hampering sawmills, while quarantining Americans pursuing home renovations or do-it-yourself projects increase the demand for timber. The matter is made worse by low interest rates and tight existing home inventory which has caused new home builders to ramp up production. The demand for new homes is so high that even during an economic crisis we hit a 14-year high in new housing starts in December

        The high demand is due to ethics-free banks foreclosing on multiple houses every day, with undue haste, in the middle of a national crisis, so that greedy rich depositors can buy them cheaply and build AirBnB empires. Have you noticed how many lawsuits Gracious Estates mobile home park has been filing lately? Mobile homes are where displaced families typically go, and now the predators are even going after them.

      And whats your reasoning on that. I mean if you have penciled it out and it creates fair paying jobs keep it respectable and yourself makes a wage you can live with what ya waiting for . If it doesn’t work out at least you tried move on to new ideas its all good right?

        Thanks for your support. Much appreciated.
        I’ve been working on a business plan and model.
        I still have some details to work out, but I’m also thinking catering mostly to a clientele of gay bikers.

    Saw a young lady today on FB who pretty much said it all about Dems and RepublicQns. Dems are concerned about BLM and immigrants and Asian people who are not being treated as equals in this country. Republicans are worried about their “personal freedoms” being compromised by requiring a mask when in public and someone trying to make it more difficult (but not impossible) to buy a gun that was made to kill many people at a time.
    This is what it comes down to, isn’t it? It is not always about you. I wish you would learn that.

          If you really want to know, it really was Trump’s fault. If he would have listened to someone other than Stephen Mengele Miller about how to handle the immigration problems we have, then there would not be a rush to get here now. Give the people some hope that they can find a better life here rather than indiscriminately turn them away because of their skin color and crush their hopes of escaping from the oppression of their home country so that their families can live together here safely.

            WRONG, another lie from the left because it’s easier to blame someone else then take responsibility for your failures.

    Markwart avoids answering questions,
    it is part & parcel of his makeup (spell that as loser).
    He was queried below about his military service and rather than just answer the question, he spewed out some of his usual inane bullshit.
    Typical Markwart, he has never been able to face reality or the truth head on.

    Good example, a few years back, on his second feeble attempt to run for city council, Markwart promised to hold a public forum….He never did.
    He realized to he would have to face people and answer questions and that he is not capable of doing.
    That would require courage and he has none.

    Markwart likes to stir the pot…until the shit gets real and he has to man up.
    Then he folds like the little wuss that he is.

        Quintessential Markwart response.
        Not intelligent enough to actually address the comment but rather spew out his usual superfluous drivel.
        And yet Markwart still does not comprehend why he got his ass handed to him in two city council elections and that he is the laughing stock of Mason City.

      According to River City Renaissance Project Facebook page, the completion is scheduled for September.

      But I wouldn’t bet on it, this whole project has been one big clusterf*ck that has been going on damn near forever.

        Come on. Once they design and pay the architect fees for the the elevated crosswalk you know for sure without a doubt it and the hotel will be built. Only a total sucker would design something like that or maybe a parking ramp and flush hundreds of K’s down the toilet and then never build it.

          Hate to tell you this buddy but President Biden was elected by America. That means we can move anywhere we want and still be in his home. You, however, should move to Siberia.
