There is so much misinformation in the world today – so let me straighten out a few things that have come to my attention:
- You do not get the Coronavirus from drinking Corona Beer. This is a big one in our world as Bob, my husband was a National Marketing Director for the company that imports this beer and his retirement is very much tied to how much Corona Beer is being consumed…so have a cold one, you will not get the virus from the beer!
- Garth Brooks wore a Barry Sanders jersey to a concert and was trashed by some of his fans for supporting Bernie Sanders….he like me, just love the running back from the Detroit Lions (you know they are owned by a Ford Family member- so I consider them my hometown team). So, Garth just likes the Motor City Team and one of its star players – not sure where he is politically!
- This weekend we have “Drive 4 UR School” benefitting several local High Schools. The misinformation on this is we are just trying to sell you a car. NO, we just want to raise money for these local schools. And for a simple drive around the block, we can collect $20 from Ford Motor Company. Yes, you have to answer a survey and worst case you will receive an extra $750 off of a Ford Purchase should you desire too…. BUT NO OBLIGATION!!! So please just stop by and drive around the block even if you are a Chevy guy from way back. We just want to help our kids get some extra funds for their sports programs and such!
Well, I could go on and on. The Internet is just full of misinformation but you, like me, are reading this local paper because you value local journalism!!! Where the facts are checked and there is a name to call if you feel there is something not quite right about the story!!
We hope to see you tomorrow at Gresham Ford from 10:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. and take your NO PRESSURE DRIVE AROUND THE BLOCK for the kids! Or just drop off a $20 bill that would be appreciated also!
