"Centers around the city distributed almost thirty six hundred bottles of water thousand pounds of ice. Were you ready for what was coming. Where we're never really ready for events like this because forewarning is often very short and time but our deployment was actually really good Given the short notice that we had you mentioned some deaths because of this heat. Tell me what you know about those. And how they have well in the neighboring town band oregon and it's a couple of hours east of here. They had a couple of deaths there that were believed to be related. Of course it's sometimes hard to discern what the actual situation was quickly. They're being investigated We had a farmer. Death in a small town called saint paul. Not far from here had six people that we interacted with alone homeless community that we arranged for medical transport because they were in a state of distress from the environmental conditions and then We have one report of one homeless individual living over here near the interstate. Who did pass away i. I'm a little bit hesitant to talk too much about that. Because i don't have all the details and in a lot of times homeless community information travels by word of mouth so sometimes the context is law. So i need to investigate that a little bit more before i can say with any degree of certainty. What happened there. Understanding how dangerous. The heat is when it descends on a place for several days in a row. Was there a sense of dread among people who didn't have shelter that this was coming and it was going to be bad. There was a sense of dread A lot of times people don't take it seriously until it until he gets to be a very dangerous situation so we saw a little bit of that People having some reticence to come into cooling centers we've been running cooling centers out here for about four years now and they are always undersubscribed. People generally don't come to them unless they are in a state of distress we Have a river runs through the middle of of salem and a lot of people go down to the river to To get into the water and get cool So that's always been one of the common coping. Mechanisms and strategies at the homeless population has when it comes to extreme weather events. You governor kate. Brown recently signed a bill that would require tracking the deaths of people who are homeless and it would have to be noted on the death certificate if they didn't have shelter at the time of their death. How important is a bill like that and what. What would it do to help situations like this. Well it's very important. And it's one that i worked on quite consistently There's just so much information out there that we don't have so much information that the public doesn't have about the consequences of living in these unsheltered environments and you know without that information. It's really easy to ignore this. It's real convenient to ignore this because information. Sort of compels action suggest responsibility and encourages people to do something about. This is just insufferable human condition. That people are quite frequently. Living in outside and i hope that it will lead to Better social service outcomes down the road. I'm hearing what you're telling me about the deaths that you've experienced there in your community about the heat wave that just came. You also mentioned the fires that have caused major problems in your area and they have across the west. They're just getting worse. Do you also worry about the way. a warming. Climate and climate change will be affecting people who are living without permanent shelter. Oh absolutely because generally when you look around the world at what. The consequences of global warming have been already populations that are being impacted. The most and i are the people in abject poverty and the people without adequate shelter that people without adequate medical care the people without the ability to Seek safe shelter and as our situation in the west is most of your listeners will know as just deteriorated in terms of the fires over the last twenty years it is getting to be a graver. Engraver concern every year. I was just in a meeting with the department of human services yesterday. We were having conversations about what our plans are going to be for the for the upcoming fire season. You know these kinds of events that we're talking about here edit on top of that. We can have very devastating consequences. I can tell you the kind of guy who cares about other people as much or more than yourself and it's been a pretty tough tough year for everybody. How are you holding up. I mean how are you doing well. We're doing okay. You know when you get into this work. There are a lot of different reactions to it. Some people care so much that after you see the cons of human suffering that we see on a fairly regular basis a lot of people just get burned out and they leave the work they leave the profession and they just can't take one more death they can't take one more tragedy they can't take one more story about the suffering that that people experience in these unsheltered conditions the other danger. Is you know you've lived through so much of a you. Become kind of callous to it. You struggled to defined empathy and and so to be able to stay in the long term. You have to find a balance between those two extremes to kind of keep going This is without a doubt been the most difficult year of all of our lives. Doing this work Between cove ed and a lot of a lot of our clients didn't end up getting the virus in oregon because impart we have so many unsheltered people living outside in perfectly socially distance environment but at the same time so many services got shut down and reduced access to medical care which more difficult we operate day centers and normal capacity in a day centers around eighty people. Well we had to drop that to tan at one point in time and eventually it came back up to twenty and twenty five and now thirty and now as of today The governor has ended the emergency order here in oregon and basically the state is reopened. So we'll get back to a one hundred percent capacity there but cove made everything so much harder but then on top of that. We had the labor day fires. We had this terrible ice storm and a fairly rough winter overall. And then just you know four months later where the sun is baking us off the surface of the earth so this has been a really challenging eighteen months without a doubt jimmy jones executive director of the mid willamette valley community action agency in salem oregon. hang in there and thank you very much for speaking with us.

"Hey to stuff to blow your mind my name is Robert Land and dime Jim McCormick and Robert. I WANNA put you in a scenario a bit seasonal. Oh Yeah at the seasonal halloween scenario. Do you WanNa go with me on a hike. It's going to hike all right. It's late October. And you are on a solitary fall hike through the woods and the leaves are starting to turn orange and red. The air is dry and you feel like an adventure so you head off trail okay not always a good idea but let's just say you're brave if this is how all terrible stories start all tragedies began you leave the trail. Well it starts very nice. So you're off trail and you find a little mountain brook and it's twisting among the rocks and you decide. Oh how sweet I'm GonNA follow this upstream. Maybe you'll find it source and on the way you come across a cluster of what looked like oak trees. Thick trunks with roots spread out exposed over the Bank of the Brooke. And there's an odd smell. It's a little bit sweet. With just a hint of deep earth nece kind of like overripe fruit so you approach the stand of trees and the ground is covered with a mad of these beautifully colored fallen leaves and as you come near the trunk of the nearest tree your foot knocks against a smooth stone tangled in the outer routes. But wait a second. That's knowstone it's smooth and white partially buried with two shaped hollows and then suddenly with a rushing sound scattering of leaves up into the air. Something envelopes you. The light gets blotted out. You feel these wooden fibers pressing into your skin from all sides. What's going on you struggled for yourself but you find that. You're becoming sluggish disoriented. There's a powerful smell your throat burns. And then the digestive enzymes come another visitor disappears into the Grove of the killer tree. I knew it was a killer tree. Once the the digestive enzymes in the started happening because my first instinct would be something was in the tree. I got myself tangled and then something was in the tree in a jump down upon me some sort of Predator of sort. I guess that's the more logical thing to think right. Yeah at least until the wood comes for that. Somebody is set some kind of trap for you. This is of human design. That's probably what I would guess But Robert Will. What first comes to your mind when I say killer. I'm sure you've got like a fictional anchor point you go to. Oh I mean there's so many there's so many examples of killer trees in especially in fantasy right. I mean it makes you think of the events or especially like the dark sort of tree people from dungeons and dragons. I'm not really familiar with those well. What happens when you fight a tree person? Well they're big there wouldn't there I think there are a few different varieties. There could basically you know they are animate trees and then there's sort of wooden people in there good good ones and bad ones. Of course the the Swing County and Lord of the rings are are are could so when you're battling a tree person do you like do you have to have a Paladin with the blessed wood chipper or something. I don't recall there. Being a requirement for magical weapons Christina some creatures can only be natural weapons but with with magical weapons but I believe that the tree creatures in this case are just big tough trees. Because that's the thing they're they're they're they're large they're flesh is different than us. So the idea of them becoming an amount. The idea of turning against this is terrifying and they do turn against I mean we live in a very tricky friendly city so anytime the wind blows anytime the anytime. The rain freezes the trees rattle and threaten US safe all they can cause significant damage even loss of life. There is a killer tree hanging over our house right now. Rachel are working on getting something done about that. But yeah it's this whole dead Pecan tree just looks like it is aching to plunge. It's killer branches through somebody's roof. And so yeah they're they're of course Killer treason reality but the kind. We're thinking of the ones that are a little more conscious with some directed. Action Agency. Maybe some arms some tentacles some gaping maw with thorn teeth one of the big ones and this went entered my mind when you were take me through the description of course in poltergeist. There's that this horrifying seeing that scarred me from an early age where you have multiple things going on at once. Like there's the creepy clown doll on the bed. But then there's the tree outside the window. It's like trying to eat the child man so I haven't seen poltergeist in years. I honestly don't remember this scene. One of many they throw a lot of nightmare imagery of against the wall and fair amount of it sticks. So I gotTa tell you this episode. I wanted to do this topic because I was inspired by having recently watched the William Freakin horror movie. The Guardian from nineteen ninety for the first time. I remember the trailer for this is like a creepy babysitter creepy nanny. I ever saw it so I don't know what the what the Gimmick is well. I'll give you the premise. It's about a couple who has a baby and they're looking for a nanny because They both want to go right back to work immediately. So they're looking for a nanny to take care of their child and they ended up going with Camilla the British nanny who unfortunately is a druid. Who's got a tree friend and her tree friend is a killer tree friend and she likes to take babies to the tree. Sacrifice them to the tree. Except it's this weird thing where the tree sort of absorbs the baby. And then you can see the baby's face embedded in the surface of the trees. So I guess the baby kind of melts into the tree and becomes petrified. Anyway she she's an evil. Druid KIDNAPS BABIES SACRIFICES THEM to kill tree there scenes where the tree kills people. There's like Camilla gets attacked in the woods by some by some creeps. Who just happened to be hanging out in the woods. And the tree defends her by essentially smashing them and tearing them up. So when you say this is part of the druids flotation movement of the nineteen ninety. Th Man if only there was such a Sean I would be over that I would be like a film scholar honor but anyway. So Do I recommend this movie? It's not a good movie but as William Freakin. So it's like a well. Made bad movie makes any sense. He there's a there's a certain segment of his demography that that definitely fits that hungry. I always worth checking out if you're a fan of his but maybe not top show. I guess I'd say it's not good. But it's worth seeing especially since the spoiler alert. The climax of the film involves the chainsaw. Welcome of course it would. Of course there are plenty of other cinematic examples of animate trees murdering trees interest. Murderous plants aside from INS-. There's the I don't know if anyone remembers the sexy matron tree from the last Unicorn now the tree becomes animate and attempts to love our hero to death or one of our two years the male hero slick. I believe and sounds troubling issues like huge bosoms and all weird. It's it's a weird. It's a weird film when you look back on it strange elements Scott. Smith's novel the Ruins and the movie adaptation of concerns main eating vine. Yeah and they're sort of Infectious right so he's not just that the vines reach out and grab you but that there is a spore element where they contaminate you with some kind of plant germ cell. I think so. Yeah yeah which is interesting. We start getting into some of the technical possibilities of man eating plants. Let's see already mentioned poltergeists there. Of course the vines and evil dead that rather notorious. Yeah there are some mini implant action in one thousand nine hundred seventy Chinese ghost story which I have not seen yet I after reading a synopsis of part of it yesterday it's moved back up to the top of my unless watch list. You got the wapping willow in Harry Potter you. Have you have a version of the evil dead vines that are mentioned in the cabinet in the woods? The quote angry molesting tree which I think you only see like a just a fragment of it as it. Snatches a guard in one. St. Man Cabinet in. The Woods is full of just great little freeze frame moment. Oh yeah tune into their various Taizhou that giant monsters that have had plant elements to them and certainly planning with fungi elements to them. And I believe one of Michael Shays nipped stories features a carnivorous plant kind of like a Venus flytrap because it has like a humanoid female part in the middle to lure males inside it weird but I don't have a clear memory of that so maybe imagining it but it seems like the kind of fame it would be one of his stories now. Almost all of these seem like modern fictional inventions do are there are there. Animated trees animated predatory trees or plants. Going back in in mythology I would expect to find such a thing. I expected to find some better examples and I was not able to find any not to say that I did miss something but the close the closest example that I came across I got excited about this is is this example of something called Jidara and this is from the traditions and folk beliefs of the Middle East. But here's the caveat as related by medieval European travelers in this is a theme. We're GONNA see time and time again. Yep The plants become animate and man killing only in foreign environments injured by Westerners Right European and American travel writers and catalogers of things going on places other than Europe in America. In the America's talk about man eating plants in this case again is related by medieval European travelers and this was explained by Carol. Rose always excellent giants monsters and dragons encyclopedia the ideas this thing emerges from the ground like a plan and jittery the jitters. It's rooted in place and it just consumes anything in its vicinity. You know cattle small animals and of course humans the only way to kill it. Is that attach it from? Its roots centrally chop it down and if you do then you get to harvest its bones because I guess it has bones valuable. It has bones. Apparently that's according to the myth so I don't know if this means that it literally has bones that it's like a rooted mammal creature vertebrate creatures or if bones in by bones. We mean it's like which. Which would you know? You know that does valuable because you could probably use the bones of the jittery to make a totally Vegan stock right roast the bones and then make make like you'd make chicken or something but this would be vegan dependent depending on exactly how you classify a monster like this now. I should also add that. It's thought that this myth probably also derived from the mandrake okay so European influence idea of the mandrake which is kind of like animal vegetable hybrid creature. And then this kind of evolves into this tale of the Jitendra. Okay and I find it curious though you know. I looked around for more examples. Couldn't find it. I would have expected. Clinton the elder the noted a first century. Roman historian often spoke a foreign monstrosities to have a clear cut example of a man eating plant. A fine land. Oh yeah plenty of the elders like the Internet right like if you can think it up. It's on there and it. If you can imagine it plenty wrote about it. Yeah like like people in other lands the people with the bellies the mouth in them. All sorts of strange humanoid monstrosities veasley monstrosities dragons etc. So why no man eating plants now Robert. Did you ever see him? Nutshell Milan's the happening. I did not. I saw the trailer it happened. There was some happening and it happened and it was about trees that were trying to kill Mark Wahlberg. I have no idea why they WANNA do that. but it wasn't really predatory behavior. It was more like vindictive jerk behavior so the trees didn't want to eat us. They were like tired of us being abusive to them. So is even less. And less biologically sound yes. Then than any of these ample. We've looked at this far. So yeah obviously this idea of the killer tree. The man eating plant is one that captures our imagination very easily. And I think I've got a theory as to wile and let me know what you think of that. I think the reason we like the image of the killer tree and it shows up in all. These stories is because the idea of a man eating plant has a certain level of why not to it right. There are creatures in nature that kill large animals with claws and teeth and tentacles envenom and such and plants have things that are equivalent to this. They've got thorns. Vine tendrils poisons Trees are much larger than us and in one sense they are apt to be much quote stronger than any animal prey. That would try to resist them. So why not you know. If the continent of Australia can produce an animal that has the for of a mammal in the bill of a duck. Why couldn't some deep unexplored forest harbor a tree that can reach out with a vine covered in venomous thorns? And snatch a hiker. Wrap them up real tight until he turns blue and then pull him down into a crevice in the root structure and treat him like a soft salty meal. Yeah I agree I think on on one hand certainly we look at all the variety of nature. We see what's possible within nature and you ask yourself well. Why doesn't this exists? Maybe it does exist. Maybe some third or fourth hand tale that I've heard about a man. Eating plant is from travelers actually true and on the other hand. I think the reason. It's so appealing is because it's important. The idea that crossing category inherent taboo. Yeah because I find myself. Kinda like if I see an example of an insect. Preying on a on a vertebrate like invertebrates eating vertebrates. Yes kind of like. It's wrong when I got a frog in. Its well. Yeah it's like. You're not supposed to move in that direction. Stick to your your own invertebrate kind but of course it happens now. Of course I wouldn't actually blame the spider for that..
