I would like COVID-19 to become extinct. The world might be a better place. Better, perhaps than before the violent virus took its throne to power.

A note to the editors, reporters, my fellow columnists, advertisers, and the millions of other talented people that it takes to put together a quality newspaper. I think that the Independent Tribune did a fine job of informing and offering insight to Cabarrus County, and beyond, during COVID-19. I feel assured that this publication has everything that it takes to continue to bring outstanding efforts to fruition.
And to our loyal readers, I have not forgotten you. It's you who are truly amazing!
