Looking back on the numbers, it is clear the peak of the positive cases in Litchfield County and Greater Waterbury so far happened in April, and the numbers in our towns have declined since. The majority of area towns experienced well over half of their total reported cases by May 1. Since then the trend in new cases and, more importantly, deaths has sharply declined, according to the state data. The only exception to this is among people under the age of 19, where about 70% of the new cases have come since May 1 — a statistic sure to draw attention as colleges and school systems prepare to head back to class. — Lee Lewis VISIT REP-AM.COM TO SEE HOW YOUR TOWN FITS INTO THESE TRENDS OVER TIME OF NEW CASES AND DEATHS BY MONTH STATEWIDE, BY AREA TOWN AND BY AGE GROUP.

Power lines and oil pipelines come in for similar condemnation. It therefore makes sense to conduct such operations in re- gions where few people live — regions like the Arctic Na- tional Wildlife Refuge’s coastal plain in Alaska. The popula- tion there is about 250. The entire refuge is about the size of South Carolina; the section known as area 1002, where oil exploration would take place, is comparable in size to Dulles International Airport near Washington, D.C. Republican presidents have been trying for decades to open ANWR to oil drilling. President Trump seems to have turned the long-lost key to a coastal plan containing an esti- mated 5.7 billion to 16 billion barrels of oil. While Democrat- ic presidential nominee Joe Biden likely will try to reverse the Trump administration’s decision if he wins the Nov. 3 election, any leases granted before Inauguration Day 2021 “can’t easily be rolled back,” The Wall Street Journal pre- dicted in an Aug. 18 editorial, “An Alaska Oil Opening, at Last.” The arguments against this enterprise were refuted long ago. Far from disrupting the Arctic wildlife, oil operations and pipelines attract animals such as caribou, which gather near the pipelines for warmth. Construction operations would take place during the winter to minimize damage to the tundra. Arguably, the anti-drilling forces’ most specious argument was that opening ANWR to oil exploration would have no immediate effect on oil supplies. This is superfi- cially true, but ANWR never was seen as a solution to an immediate energy crisis. It’s part of a long-term strategy for energy security. Thanks to the fracking revolution, the United States now is a net energy exporter. This is a national-security and eco- nomic benefit of great consequence; depending on crude-oil shipments from the volatile Middle East never was a pru- dent policy.
