Take the challenge

To the editor: Media are reporting that Lee County will be receiving “nearly $150 million” from President Biden’s American Rescue Plan and that the county is conferring with Senator Rubio’s office about how it can spend the windfall. Better idea: Why doesn’t the county consult ...
