@bobwarrick I think you’ve been hit with the same issue as a few of us, related to cloning, as mentioned here: Local shows sites running upon opening the app even when I didn't start them

There is a way to fix it, if you want to get crazy and edit json files directly (back 'em up first!), but it might be safer to wait for an official fix.

@burt Although I am not adverse to editing json files, I will wait for an official fix to this Local 6.1.0 defect.
