Default The Volume of the speakers in the Town Squares

I made a quick trip to a store yesterday and noticed that the volume of the speakers broadcasting the Villages Radio Station was significantly up. On the way home I did a quick "around the square" and there were people dancing. Then, on the way home down Buena Vista, I noticed that the "Watch the Sunset Groups" were there in force, very together, and enjoying life. No social distancing there or on the Square! Just an observation from someone who has been camped out in his house going on two weeks now. BTW, before the snark starts, my hearing is excellent.

Sad that people won't take seriously what they should. The fact they have such disregard for the health of others if they don't care about it on a personal level is unreal. But then again, we ARE the generation that remembers "chickenpox and measles" sessions where some of mom's actually exposed their kiddos to others that had it BEFORE school age trying to ensure it would not cause you to miss 10-14 days of school.

Back in day I was sent to my cousins to catch chicken pox.
Caught it, came home and gave it to my father, who thought he had had it when young.
He hadn't, and he had a dreadfull time with it.
Our family doctor recommended he scratch scabs and then rub vineger in them!
Absolutely true.

Since this thread is about speakers in the town squares, saves me I think from starting a new thread. I just read the hyphen news article about businesses closing in the squares due to the virus. All good and well. The very end, MS META MINTON described the music playing from WVLG on the empty squares as
******* EERILY MAOIST ******* Whatever vendetta this woman has against the developer has clouded her judgement to the point she is seriously demeaning Villagers and our choice to live in an awesome environment.
We will survive this virus, and be stronger as a country and community. But this disease that affects Ms. Minton can only be addressed by her and mental health professionals. In my ten years here, I've never heard or seen anything that pi $$ed me off nearly as much as this description of OUR town square!!!

I noticed the line dancers dancing to the radio. They were well spaced six feet apart (think of them all spreading their arms and still not touching) and I was thinking what a great way to get some exercising in while staying safe.

I thought it was a typo. Did she really meant to write that?

I am looking for opinions. We have stopped doing everything, including social distancing. How does everyone feel about playing golf? We have our own golf cart and clubs and we keep the flag in.

With less people less golf carts or cars to absorb the noise it would see louder

I don't think the speakers are high, I think it is the reduction in road noise just makes it seems that wey.
