The sounds of summertime in Moab are familiar yet different this season. Some kids sell homemade lemonade – while wearing face masks and using hand sanitizer. Two best friends have a casual baseball practice, and say summer has been alright because they’re still allowed to hang out. And produce and artisan vendors sell their wares at the Market on Center – while carefully minding social distance.

Plus (13:00), our roundup with The Times-Independent. Staff writer Carter Pape discusses bleak unemployment numbers in Grand County, the plan for schools reopening, and separate structure fires that displaced local residents. And, a rare melanistic deer who died in Moab is preserved by a taxidermist.
