Before I write about money and investments in the context of COVID-19, I want to be clear that the illness is first and foremost a health and humanitarian concern and only secondarily a financial one.
As important an asset as money may be, health and well-being are our greatest assets. Our thoughts go out to all affected directly by the illness, as well as the countless others whose daily lives have been upended in response to the threat.
Earlier this week we published part one and part two (online only) of a story about Nicole Lanni, who as chair-elect of the Claremont Chamber was going to be named executive committee chairperson to the organization, one of the most prominent business positions in Claremont. Before she started her position, the COURIER was contacted by several Chamber members who were upset about business dealings with Ms. Lanni.
There’s an enormous amount of information about this ongoing world health emergency. The COURIER will continue publishing regular, daily, even hourly updates on our website and Facebook.
Our goal is to dispel any rumors or inaccurate information. Please take social media information with a critical eye, since there are rumors out there. This is a rapidly changing story as details emerge.
A major part of traveling entails finding a place to stay. Part of that choice involves the reason for the trip itself. If the main reason for the trip is to get away and relax (and not mind the cost), relaxing at a spa, eating great food, drinking good wine and perhaps visting vineyards, well then, finding a posh hotel that is in the center of things and offers a high lifestyle or somewhere remote and perhaps even “romantic” might be the choice to make.
