If you are anticipating some financial relief from the Feds in the coming days, please consider doing your Island a solid and spending whatever tiny amount you’ve allotted to discretionary purposes on local, independent businesses. The big box stores, chain restaurants and online giants don’t need your money as much as the little guys do right now, and the little guys are one of the key things that make this Island special.
I understand that it’s never a good look to tell people how to spend their money, but let’s be clear: this is government cheese — it’s our money. We’re all going to pay for it eventually, by way of taxes after our economy recovers. So spread that cheddar. Make it count.
