[Ken Skibum Curtzwiler]

To date my company "Skibumfamily" and "Lake Tahoe Skibum" have given over $1,900 to the community through Bread and Broth and the Lake Valley Fire Department

Let's keep this going. 

Get your sticker now. 100% of the proceeds goes right back to the community. 

Out of towners, I will mail you them, (min order 5) with a self addressed stamped envelope back to us. 

Buy them at Napa Automotive store at the Y. 

THANK YOU, Ken.

Coronavirus 10 Times More Deadly Than The Flu

The U.S. death toll is expected to get much worse. The White House on Tuesday projected that even in the best-case scenario, with full mitigation efforts, America would see between 100,000 and 240,000 deaths. 

Without any efforts to stop the virus, the death toll could be as high as 2.2 million, the estimates said... 

Anthony Fauci, the government’s leading infectious disease expert, has said the mortality rate from the coronavirus is at least 1 percent, which would make it about 10 times more deadly than the flu.
