IN YOUR VIEW/Short Supply? What items are getting hard to find in Twin Cities?

January 13, 2022 at 10:00 p.m.

The COVID-19 omicron variation surge has led to labor shortages at manufacturing, distribution and transportation sectors of the economy in recent weeks. That means some things are grtting hard to find on store shelves across the country.

Among the items reported to be sometimes harder to find nationwide are canned goods, breakfast cereal, milk, saltine crackers, fresh produce, chicken and pet food. Panic buying when the items are on the shelves isn't helping the situation.

Some pharmacies are reporting delays in getting prescription drugs as well.

Texarkana is not immune to these issues. And that's the question this week.

We want to know your experiences. Would items have you found to be hard to find recently in Texarkana stores?

Send your response (50 words maximum) to [email protected] by Wednesday, January 19. You can also mail your response to the Texarkana Gazette Friday Poll, at P.O. Box 621, Texarkana, TX 75504 or drop it off at our office, 101 E. Broad St, Texarkana, Ark. Be sure to include your name, address and phone number. We will print as many responses as we can in next Friday's paper.

Last Week: Banning Tobacco?

Last week's question was about banning tobacco gradually over time by raising the legal smoking age every year. Would you support similar legislation to slowly get rid of all tobacco products? Or are you against the idea?

No, I would not support it. I am over 85 years old and have never used tobacco. However, I do not believe the government has the right to dictate what we do to our bodies. We are losing rights every year, give us the right to our bodies! -- J.C., Texarkana, Texas
