In normal times, the month of June is the long-awaited start to summer - backyard barbecues, outdoor concerts, patios and enjoying our relatively short-slice of perfect weather. Instead, 2020 has offered a season of challenges from COVID-19 to the ongoing protests surrounding police brutality and the killing of George Floyd.
This issue went to press before the Floyd killing and subsequent protests. Columbus was just emerging from the pandemic lock-down as businesses stretched their arms and prepared for the return to semi-normalcy.
