"He needs to understand that No more than California is Los Angeles. Texas is not Austin. It's true if he wants. If you want to consider moving to Texas. I really really encouraged him to look somewhere. Besides Austin. You know, I we live in basketball County, and I don't go to Austin anymore than I have absolutely have to best drop County has been booming, like crazy over the past couple of years. I mean, there's there's place I've lived at. Tremendous Yeah, in the last five years have just broken my heart. I've known forever that it was inevitable, right? But Yeah. And you just contributed to it. Didn't you encouraging people to come out? So come out to bastard. I hear you did Nisa. I totally get it. You're absolutely right. Austin is not Texas. I'm not sure what it is anymore. Let's see, Sparky. Hey, Sparky. Good morning, sparking morning gas. Hey, you know, you know that place out there where they have the rock rally. Yeah, Yeah. The Expo Center. Yes, that expose answer. Yes, sir. Things like that would be a really good place to camp out for the campers. Uh, they got the utilities that they're already a lot of people can't back there in the biker rally and also has been talking about rebuilding that place or building a new one. It's not Austin's authority. That's actually Travis County, Travis County. Owns and manages and operates that that would be something you did. Why would Travis County want to solve Austin's problem? Why would Travis County want to take over Austin's problem? All that is Travis County's problem is well, I mean, they're not right now. Doubt about it. All right now. No. Nobody going to Travis County Commissioners Court make demanding changes. But he is correct This forest location. I mean, even just with the vast, vast amount of parking That they have out there that could be utilized for per some kind of Ah, homeless camp that that would be a good location. Really? Yeah. Wow, I'll disagree with you on that one Come because the Travis County Expo Center is a crown jewels for the taxpayers of Travis County. And now you want to totally just hand it over to be a homeless encampment. It's a facility that has generated millions hundreds of millions of dollars over generations, and now you just want to give up on this great this great event center. And turn it into a an encampment. That didn't seem like a smart move with your investment. Well, no, you're You're right in that regard, but right now, I don't know what they're doing with it. And yeah, there is plans. Tohno Jit. But certainly the physical set up finding some kind of Ah, set up like that, that kind of space and there is a lot of space like that in Southeast Austin. Uh, in North East Austin, east of 1 30. There is a lot of city owned land out there. So that would be that is every time I think of some kind of homeless encampment. That is the area. That's that's what I envisioned. That's one vote for transforming the Travis County Expo Center into a homeless encampment. Now you gotta have to erase all the events. That are planned year after year at that place. I don't know how many events do they have year out? They have the rodeo and the rot rally those that that was the only two that come to mind Pops. Checking in. Yeah, pops checking in from community First village this morning. Hey, what's going on out there? Yes, sir. I always like to check in with you, Matt Mackowiak and set the groundwork for changing Austin back to like it used to be an American tin used to screw up. Why he doesn't give Alan and Tricia Graham that money for that motel out there. The community First Village. I just don't can't figure out well, that would be admitting you'd have to get the mayor to admit he doesn't know how to solve the crisis. He only knows how to inflame it. My head and all those resource is over to Alan Graham. That would be admitting defeat They have they have showed improved, Alan interest a gram that this place worked. Yes, about Utopia.

"Yes, sir. Listen, Austin is still moving right along with its plan. House homeless people at the Candlewood Suites there in northwest Austin. The city is, you know, is approved spending up to $9.5 million to buy that property back in February, creating quite a firestorm of controversy. And Williamson County. This this hotel is you know, is in Austin City limits. But it's actually in what he was in county and a lawsuit has been filed by the owners of the hotel That's next door along with Williamson County. Now, earlier this morning, we heard from Williamson County Judge Bill Gravel here on the tide of Dodge Show talking about well, they he still wants to sit down and have a conversation with the mayor. You continue toward the drive to purchase the candle with sweets. Williamson County will hold you accountable, But he says Mayor Steve Adler has reached out to him, and he thinks lines of communication. Starting to open up gravel on our show earlier today, he says he wants to sit in the county to partner up on some real solutions, creating something that's very similar to the community. First Village out in Travis County, Eastern Travis County know that project that's run by Alan Graham and mobile loaves and fishes and has no input from the city of Austin. Let's build a 400 home tying home community and allow these guys around the project. There's no doubt that that project out there works. Austin, however, is given no into Occasion that it plans to what end that purchase of the hotel there in and man Cole is on the tide of Don Shona says on the screen. You're visiting from California this morning called What's on your Mind? Yes, sir. Hi, guys. Yes, sir. I'm visiting from, obviously from California here for the same reason. A lot of people are looking at real estate. And you know my perspective is I'm I'm from outside of L. A Um, grown up, born and raised in California. L A is just you don't even go down there anymore. I've got a family with young kids, and we used to like to go down to the city. It's just I carry a gun. Everywhere I go now It's terrifying and I come to Texas thinking I'm coming back. My family reads and good old boys and law and order and everyone script scrambling to come to Texas from California. Ah, lot of friends. I know. Thanks. Oh, if I just get the Texas things were, you know, conservative friends, but I'm driving through Texas and saying Damn, there's nothing different. Then this looks like downtown Los Angeles. And then I'm listening to you guys. And I guess my colon because of what my biggest question is. In such a wonderful city like Austin. Why are voters voting for a City council that is insisting on these policies that have failed everywhere else, and they I am so confused that Texans are voting this into their own Wonderful capital city, and it's just shocking what we currently we currently have a City council that's full of people that are not from here. They have a lot of outside source funding and in Yeah, it's It's a very liberal city in this red state. There's no doubt about it calling me ask you a question. How long did you live in L. A. I'm born and raised. You know, I'm from the suburbs. But I still have a bird's eye view of what's happened there, and it's creeping out. You know, I live in a Safe. You know, really conservative area, but it's creeping. It's a matter of Short years. I think at this point before it's going toe see everywhere. Los Angeles is Los Angeles is the mecca? I mean, that is where Ah the homeless issue has really gotten out of hand. And it did 40 50 maybe 60 years ago with Skid Row where they designated an area of the city that was okay for people to live in camp. We're about to do that. Here call in Austin, Texas. We're going to pick a variety of locations where it's okay to camp. Any kind of warning from your experience living in Los Angeles. Well, it's just the doubt slippery slope. I don't see. You know, I have a friend who lives in a nice neighborhood in the city Women in Boston. It's a gorgeous area. Um and I was talking with him last night, he said they had a new incident where they called the police and the cops had to come to a house party and the neighbors. These my friends were shocked at the neighbors who had zero respect for the police that came to save their neighborhood from potentially vandalism and fighting and violence and Instead of instead of appreciating the local cops like him, they threw beer. And then the parents even came out and that you're abusing these kids. It just sounds so foreign. I guess my point is He told me that there's one Republican on the City Council. Now I know it's a It's a blue city. I get that. I just hoping one day that It doesn't It doesn't turn into l A. And I tell you, it's not far behind. It's not there already from just being here a couple days. Yeah, I hear what you're saying, Man. I appreciate your call for calling in this morning zoo. Good perspective on we feel. Yeah. What we're dealing with here today. We do have a mayor that came Torto, California specifically went out there to learn Basically what was not working. For their their homeless issue, and then pretty much came here in modeled. What was not working. It wasn't that long ago that the taxpayers of Austin spent a mountain of money buying out homes that were along Onion Creek that flooded a few years ago and during storms kind of got back to back years of massive floods. And you I don't know how many homes you bought out, but they're basically just slabs There. There now, in some regards, there may be some structures over there Now. I have been over there in a couple of years. But maybe that'd be a great location for a homeless encampment. They would not There's there's infrastructure. There's roads. Is the water system. There's a sewer system underground over there. That may be the best location right there. Well, it's in a floodplain and there, you know, I'm thinking of Onion Creek. That community, for example. Which is lost had lot of hopes scraped, gone just slabs as you saying grass now on green Belt at Green Belt, and it is it Z really is pretty, but no, no, absolutely not. That's a bad spot. You're you're in the neighborhood, all community actual neighborhood fact. In that case, you're Next to a country club. But, uh, no. It needs to be more rural than that. It needs to be more separated. I like like Terry Town thought I'm looking about Terry Town. Is that a good look at that zoo fun to talk about, But it's it's and, Yeah, there is kind of a part of me. That would would enjoy that. But but that's not realistic. I'm looking at At a at a map that right now that the you know a city owned land, and I'm looking at Southeast Austin, east of 1, 30. There's a lot we cut a lot of land over there, man that is sitting there. That would be perfect for for this. Maybe not for something permanent, but certainly for something that would be better than what they have going right now and that they could do more quickly. It is 9 11 you could jump in at 5128360. 5 90 a lot of land out there. But near the airport, too. Yeah, right And the bus goes out there, they need bus access. They need access to a wide variety of things. Food, electricity for warmth. I mean, there's there's a lot of things they need. And I know there's a lot of organizations here in town that actually deal with the homeless themselves, Mobile loaves and fishes. They still feed people beyond you know, you know, community First Village. There's a lot of churches here in town to do a lot of great things to help the homeless and I'm just curious if you're listening, right. Now we'd love to talk your organization up about how you're helping. And I'm sure you have some incredible ideas on how to fix this problem. Maybe really fix it. 51283605 90 Todd and don show.

"I would say you created this problem. You're no better close to Alan Graham. Alan Graham wasn't spending taxpayer's money. It's warm in here. And you should. He's not spending $9.5 million either. You know, I would say now 16 million and I don't know where. Almost feels like in the city has an underlying plan. We just don't know what man it is. So do you have a contract? The city would you consider a lawsuit? Yes, By all Means s o. You absolute all means, Yeah. You think you're gonna stop here? Okay, so you're not going to stop here? You are looking at opportunities to pursue a lawsuit. Absolutely. And that's what the message today is that every single person who's listening today is Please support this cause Because it's happening to us. It will happen to you also, it will happen to your neighborhood. Also, what do you want the city Council to do now? City Council to come speak, come to the table and really make us understand how kind Some agreement say I'm not opposed to form in support of houses if it continues like this, where they really genuinely want to help. The people. He had won a full ride the caseworkers they're going to provide and they're going to provide, But I want them to come come to the table and explained how secured and health faces will be there. I want them to build a fence. I want them to change the address. I want them to come speak to the residence, how their kids are going to be safe in the location. These are some conversations that need to happen. They have completely failed, just buying a prominent supporter of housing, and I don't want that to change for this. So if you look at former in support of houses, it's fine. It's not a shelter. They do not allow people to hang out. They do not. But we lived. My biggest concern is, Will it stay its purpose? Is what I'm questioning because today was going to stop the city from changing its purpose out. They didn't stop today. They will not stop tomorrow, either. Good report to Dario. Thank you so much for calling in this morning that we really do appreciate you connecting with this bill for her in contact with us. Thank you very much for her. Yeah. Thought considering a lawsuit? Yeah. You know, I hope she goes sorry. She has to consider it but She doesn't well, she would be suing you. Well, you know what? I understand that? Yeah. And my my hands are tied. Yeah, I got you. I understand. It's quite a predicament. 51283605 90 toll free 8775905525 thought I was just thinking about years ago. Next to my neighborhood, a big Office building was being proposed. Being built and with with me in our neighborhood would be in the shadow of that, literally in and figuratively in this big office building and everybody in the neighborhood. We have a very small neighborhood was concerned about it had a lot of questions and complaints. And but but The difference is The developer worked very, very closely. Communication was was 100% with with all the residents in my little neighborhood, That's how you get everybody on board and and now, e don't know For what reasons I'm sure their financial but it hasn't happened. It never happened and that those meetings were 12 years ago now Don't don't know if it's still being planned or not, but I sure appreciate what he did as far as keeping us abreast of everything sure, and that's how you do it. Hey, check this out. US Children will start getting vaccinated this spring. That is if Dr Anthony Anthony Fauci has his way. You know, the director for the National Institute of Allergy Infectious Disease says, you know, he shots could be offered two kids between the ages of 12 and 17 at the beginning. And he's hoping that they'll be able to have the data to support initiating the covered 19 immunization of Children. By late spring into the summer, we will progress to the younger groups as we have more data. This will help reduce the virus transmission, he says. So they're Ugo. I think you're gonna have a bigger problem of parents getting their kids vaccinated. Yeah. And add. Will this be required to go back to school? Right. We know it's going to be required for potentially for a lot of travel getting on ships, planes. They won't want that done in the future and already gotta have mass. So how would think it would be required for your kid to go to public school right? Well could be right. I mean, the CDC says it's time to bring the kids back and the teachers don't need to be vaccinated to do that. They say that's what the CDC says. We got more straight ahead.

"Save you Doctors are going to treat you in the emergency room and I have a feeling that there's maybe a dozen, maybe more on our streets that they're living. Like that in their own head. They can't make any kind of decision when they actually get contacted are put in the hospital's. If you have officers who were experienced enough to realize the decompensation is the second reason that you can The second form of a danger to yourself that can allow you to hospitalize somebody, but as soon as they're stabilized, you have to release them. And so they get back out on to the street and stopped taking their medication at all. Just a big revolving problems. Sure. No, I I get it, You know? And you know, in the state hospital here in Austin, there's something to this story. We brought this up before. Maybe you could clear this up. I've often heard that when someone is you know, sent to the State Hospital of Austin, maybe from another county, another part of the state. That they become ours. They live in Austin, Texas now and they make legally if let's say I live in The game. I'm an officer in again and I do it could commitment on somebody and take him to the state hospital taken to a hospital in Austin or in San Antonio. Legally, my department has to go pick him back up once they're released, But I don't know what the hospitals call and ask him to do that. And they just refused. Or just nobody follows up. I don't know how that works. I mean, we We're here in Travis County, and so it wasn't really hard for us to bring it back to Travis County. I've often heard that you know, after 30 days, 90 Days, Ohio belong there in the State hospital. They're given a prescription and they walk out the door. That's what we've heard locally from folks that work there in the state of their medically stabilized. They have to be released, and so if it takes a month or it takes a year or it takes three days They have to be released, but they actually have court hearing. If I'd detain somebody within three days, they have to be evaluated by a doctor. And if the doctor decides to hold to commit them, then they have court hearings every month for over three months. Something like that, where they have a lawyer, and they have a right to be heard that they're no longer a danger. That's also one of the problems with reporting on police shooting mentally ill people because the vast majority of the time the police contact mentally ill people, you don't do anything are they take him to a hospital? It's the homicidal. And the suicidal people who end up becoming violent and generally caused those problems or officers. You don't have enough experience dealing with someone to realize that they're mentally ill. And Sometimes whatever they they leave that state hospital. They're given a prescription and in like a 30 day prescription and they run out, or they stop taking it because they think they're better because the medicine makes it works. I think they're better. So they stop taking that medication. And then all of a sudden they got more problems will cycle. Bad thing to say. But there are many people who are schizophrenic and hear voices and they live on the street. They don't have anybody to talk to, but those voices in their head. There's a lot of people who stopped taking the medication because of that, and there's a lot of people who stopped taking the medication because In their mind. It makes them feel worse. You know, I had a relative who said that It made her feel dull and lifeless. I mean, she wasn't that bad. She too. You know she had a lower level problem, but Uh, they don't like taking because of the effects of the medication or worse, they think and then the benefit that gets from a terrible, terrible, horrible, vicious cycle. It really thank you so much for calling him. I I really do Appreciate some good. You know, we were talking to the break. In. What way? Had a caller last segment that was saying Why is it that the wise it city governments, Uh, issue to take care of us far as the homeless? Given how successful for the most part Alan Graham has been with with his program, Todd, I promise you if we if we got Elon musk on this problem, or we got bees. Oh, sir. Both of them, they would take care of it. The government gets in their own way. Over and over and it all gets it all get gets muddied up in politics and what is going to be the best solution? Let's bring in Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos and we got the problem solved. Is it Eleanor Ellen? I'm trying to let you hate like this is a list to tell me my headsets. He's on the line. Thank you like ceiling. He always says for me to call him island Every time you say that kind of stands out. I'm like he's He's saying it right? I don't know. I don't know. Maybe you're right.

"That's still more than what these two hotels are going to be able to house and put these tiny homes on there. So a they're all in one place. But yet they all have their own individual homes, and they have The bus is run out there. I think it was a long a bus line so that that would be that they have public transportation to get to the downtown area or wherever it is. They need to go. Why are we not looking at more things like that? It's a much more fiscally responsible approach, which is why we're not looking at more things like that, because we don't know what that issue. I don't know what it means to be responsible with the money. You've got people like Greg costs are on the city council who think they're on a noble Mission. And that they know best on how to do this, and the value of what they're doing is increased by the amount of money they spend. Even if it's totally misguided or wasted. He needs to be asked out, right. Why is this approach of buying the hotels for just 200 people? More humane. Ah, better idea then. What they've done in San Antonio that needs to be asked and answered out, right? Why do you think we need to go down this path instead of going down? This one that has already been proven to work? Yeah, they have 17 buildings at the haven for hope, 17. It's many many acres 1700 adults or served on a daily basis. 300 Children They get a lot more bang for their buck in San Antonio than we do here, Julia. Welcome to K L. B. J with Mark and Melinda. Good morning. How are you? Julia? I'm just fine. Thank you. Go ahead, Please. Julia. I'm sorry. I think the city should take that money and then make what Alan Graham has done with mobile loaves and fishes. It's proven successful. All right. Thank you. They've dismissed that over and over and over. They don't wanna have anything to do with that kind of approach. 51283605 90. We'll get more of your comments coming up.

"Going the show is on the that's right let's begin with some good news you heard it there in the news there the tiny home village in east Austin operated by mobile loaves and fishes yeah home for a chronically homeless folks are seeing a one million dollar cash infusion thanks to the good people of the Austin board of realtors that's a big deal yeah the committee first village she'll Alan Graham says all told this could add up to what maybe ten additional tiny homes in the village just in the first few years alone this will be a million dollars over the next ten years but at the end of the decade they hope that this will be a good thing getting a lot of people off the street so I believe that we in the city of Austin can be the first city ever to mitigate this tool point that is really and truly going to be manageable by a city that is Alan Graham with mobile loaves and fishes they run the committee first village Graham says those funds could also help build more kitchen and laundry facilities for the folks out there it's awesome it's a program that is really really working at such a great model that so many other you know homeless program should follow and it's it I wish the don't want the city to get involved in his pro that's the only reason this program is successful exactly but I would like to see the city model it for sure let me take that back Alan Graham is the reason this thing is successful well yeah ultimately if the city got involved it would be a failure would it be a mess it would be confusing and it would probably had the other direction so but I think it's a good model for the city to follow and I don't think they're anywhere close to that one if you're if you're looking to make a donation to really help people get off the streets and really make a difference mobile loaves and fishes a great place to start I would rather do that than put five Bucks in their hand at a street corner absolutely yeah Hey the Austin school district is beginning screening of students suffer the coronavirus epistle say your school nurses will screen anyone who has traveled to and from China in the past fourteen days already but it comes up with a fever the screening applies to students and staff and in some some critics call it unnecessary the a ISD says it's out of an abundance of caution I think it is a necessary at this point I think what is going to do is going to cause some unnecessary anxiety you might change your mind if somebody came down sick yeah they are you change your mind okay so let's not beat the I mean yeah I may be unnecessary but Hey seems like the right thing to do just in case you're dealing with eighty one thousand students one hundred and thirty campuses you have an International Airport in our city it is possible some folks could fly through here of the students are exposed to somebody that's traveled over there it's very possible well you know I I think if they had some you know dad some some evidence that there'd been some kind of a contact with somebody had been over there that that that would warrant it I guess not I think it I think it's spot on with the school district should have done years ago because we are the capital city of the anti vaccine movement it was a man with the measles that came through Austin I think it's something that has to be a consider considering it's Austin Texas well ultimately if it if it does hopefully it won't cause any undue anxiety and in panic or anything like that yeah if that's the case okay great get it done move on Hey I'll stay with us coming up in business news in Austin company is helping beer and cannabis business become more environmentally friendly I will take a look at some business news straight ahead right now six oh nine and time for the rush update we've arrived at another milestone my friends eighteen million American households you was food stamps now that may sound like a lot but remember under Barack Hussein all the one the number reach an all time high of twenty three million that was twenty percent of American households under president trump food stamp use has plummeted to a nine year low one reason the numbers are falling is because the economy is booming but that's not the only reason the trump administration just closed a ridiculous loophole that allowed millions of people to apply for food stamps regardless of how much money they make not anymore without that stupid little poll more food stamp users are actually people in need normally this would be praised but don't hold your breath on that if the left reacts at all it'll be to complain that fewer people on food stamps is a sign that trumps America has no come fashion or since the opposite that's true it's a sign that prosperity and economic growth has returned for everybody this is real compassion not increasing the numbers of people on food stamps but increasing the numbers of people who no longer need it that is compassion did you know that there is a new victim of identity theft every two seconds it means a criminal could be spending your money applying for loans in your name.

it differently differently so that is just I don't mind anyone pronouncing it wrong there's no wrong way analysis everyone pronounced it way so say again how you were born what your parents called you get filton buddy wow this riveting stuff on democracy now did they get into any conversation about how she's been abused since she's for the past of years by her parents sent royal rolled it turns out it doesn't even seem like your parents are in the the the base abusers because they were somewhat responsible instead they do have this discussion I didn't pick I didn't pick up any in the climate changed I I just was trying to draw the things out of this this interview and this one is her on her she became a depressive when she was eight because because of climate change because he started reading and he was guiding her so this set of giving her any skeptical you know they probably were encouraging her oh yes it's horrible you're going to die die so let's but it turns out that her parents weren't all in and she got depressed but this this is her it's a long clip it's two minutes and but it is fascinating because this poor girl at eight at the age of eight who has ASPERGER's and discusses it Bill Gates has very similar element so it doesn't really hurt their ability to focus that's for sure I did enhances it and so she has she's a focused little girl and she went into a deep depression and lasts over a year and this was gs eight is really disgusting a sad but in some ways disgusting store so you went through a crisis in that period after you were eight years old can you talk about what you went through it was often that I sort of correct with reading about and I understood and that made me very depressed of course and when when you are the only one who who D- reacts about this crisis and everyone else seems to just okay it's very important but I I'm too busy with my life and I just thought that it was very strange that no one else was behaved being in in the logical way and so I would that logical way have been to do something to ahead of all of your comfort zone and to realize that okay we cannot continue like we have done now we need to do something drastically and I and I are going to I do everything I can to help to push in the right direction and but no one seemed to do that my parents were just like continues not before my classmates everyone of my relatives I mean no one was no one seemed to care about these issues except me and that was a strange feeling and so you just send it into a depression yes of course of course by many reasons but that was I think the biggest reason to it because I just thought that's everything is just so wrong and everything is so strange and everything is so sad and why is anyone doing anything about this and so then I fell into a depression and lasted for maybe you or something in the night us talking yeah I stopped to because I have selective mutism or at least had they said it sometimes grows away that I only spoke to some people might teach difference since my parents some members of my family and so on and I stopped eating almost entirely I only it was the big problem and lost a lot of weight because I was just so depressed nothing seemed to matter anymore oh I'm actually glad they they showed this and I hope parents watch this and got a clue nobody washed it to get a clue this is what the audience because all that poor woman I wish we'd do more about climate change deport deport child got the press because of all the the climate change talk you say that I say that yeah but that's not the way that anyone else is going to see it well maybe there's a few people listen to our podcast few well I for audio season I hope so you know I don't want to say we're outliers but I mean the way they were playing it as told this poor girl client we do something about climate change you wouldn't have gotten depressed that's the way I I'm imagining them looking at it from that perspective yeah anyway so she was on there doing her thing she says she has selective mute business which really quickly on the Scott Adams interview when he was having his problem with the aw right he had to but it was like it was also selective I don't recall it. The term though selective mute is he never used the term selected it is an never heard the term that term until she said it but it was the same thing where you can talk Scott could talk fine talk to anybody they could talk to himself and I think there's maybe a couple of people who could talk to but he couldn't talk to anybody else and that's what this would happen whatever she couldn't talk to any there's certain people I mean I thought I could I could continue until the my nine nineties doing podcasting what could really stop me but what if I develops commute ISM as possible would be horrible happen to anybody would depends on your perspective whether it be horrible or not well it's not great as a podcast her probably I'm guessing no although although talking apparently selected mediums you can talk to nobody and from what I can tell Mos- podcasts really talked to nobody so I think he's still be realized that's why I've I've far fewer ticks when doing the show all myself because you know I'm talking to nobody talking to me Oh well they go selective mutism perhaps I have the latest chant from the extinction rebellion crowd. deb A new a new chance believe it is altogether there is no future on a dead planet Oh that's interesting because I was hearing wrong would you think they were always hearing something something there's no two terms I thought it was some anti trump goodness they played again in land listen for no two terms note no concern no two terms not terms I really I could get here no two terms not so you're saying no future yeah but it's like business attorney whoever Mike that needs to be arrested it was just the iphone video swooping across a bunch of people that's all it was I went I did maybe say I can do that quickly I went to the community I village here in Austin who aren't solving the problem in their own unique incredibly successful way or gay little update first of all the The guy who started this Alan Graham has a podcast and I listened to a couple of episodes he started this I think about eleven years ago and it took me on it too I when it says it's south it's passed the airport a little bit it's I think they have two hundred and fifty people renting tiny homes Heidi of different types of dwellings ranging from two hundred and seventy five dollars a month to five hundred dollars a month and the two seventy.

"Wise, man, totally. Nato here. Good to hear from him again. All right. Be any more motivational messages for the for the audience you wanna share in other Nazi at the top. All right. That's it. Thank you very much. Check this out Austin city leaders, they got their sights set on a new and second homeless shelter. There's been as you know, migration of late of the homeless folks spreading out into other parts of town. And that's why the city council this week will consider the best spot for a smaller shelter. We've got the Austin resource center for the homeless, the arch downtown, which is an eyesore, which is a problem location, which has been kind of a money pit as of late, a drug haven now the city is looking open up a second shelter that could house about one hundred beds or so we know that one of the properties that the staff has has located as a potential is in south Austin. Yes, that's council member and kitchen. She spoke with FOX seven news. And she says they got to act fast forward on a property to move forward on asking for a service provider to operate and to move forward by asking the city manager to find the funds. Now she says they have identified an existing building in south Austin. And she will not tell us where he doesn't want to say, specifically at this point, it's top secret keeping their cards close to her chest. Well, that's all about transparency. Isn't it miss kitchen? She says it's not an neighborhood though if it's not an a neighborhood. Why are you afraid to tell people where it is? Well, because if it's a neighborhood that doesn't mean that you're, you could be next to businesses. So. Which is exactly where you wanna put a shelter. We've got a homeless shelter being built right next to us. We're so excited said no one ever. I mean, that, that I'm sure they're going to be very, very, very careful. What, what she's trying to do what she's trying to limit the amount of pushback, the community might give if it's in their backyard, I think people would be a lot more excited about this possibility. If we were hearing from Alan Graham, and not a city Representative Alan Graham already has a track record you like you like this idea of the city. That's the first thing you said this morning, we need to do it. What I'm not excited about the city aspect of it. I'm not because they get enough, as far as how they're dealing with the homeless as far as I'm concerned, you ask that question earlier. How would we great him? And I would give him an f I would you got to look at the Austin resource center for the homeless. How's it working the only thing I see is the rival to give people somewhere to sleep at night.

So the Austin police union, he has posted something in the world of social media talking about this very issue. This has become a labor issue for our association, allowing people to camp and build tent cities is causing health care crisis, and a once beautiful San Francisco Los Angeles in Seattle. Unfortunately, in these cities, you're starting to see rat infestations and disease like typhoid making appearance, well respected doctors are starting to admit that we will see a return of the plague. How do you fix the problem? He asked this question. Number one. Here's the solution from Ken Cassidy, the Austin police union we. We start getting small shelters built around the city we need churches in private industry to step up and help the city conquer this problem, we have a multibillion dollar businesses that are thriving in this city. They can step up to help along with people of faith, and get this done the burden should not always fall on all of the tax payers. Hashtag just a man's opinion hashtag. We can do better. What can Cassidy says on Facebook? All right. Well, he is out there, too. He sees. He sees a lot of things that you and I don't and we see what we drive by what we walked by. But he sees. He sees in. Here's a lot about more of the nitty gritty. Do you agree with his solution? I agree with the solution. I wish it was that simple. Well, let's throw it out there churches pastors administrators at some of our biggest churches and the smallest churches listening. Right. This very minute. What is your church doing to help with this crisis in it is a crisis? What is it? What are you doing? Let's brag a little bit about your accomplished. In helping the homeless community, right? Five one two eight three six zero five ninety another some churches that literally house, the homeless for certain amounts of time, and there may, there may be people listening that wanna donate to your organization, right? And let's face it, it takes a certain type of person a certain type of organization, who's actually going to reach out and try to make a difference. And. You know it it's an I think it's probably.

"Ninety. We also want to talk about this plan that charitable group says we'll cut panhandling in downtown Austin by eighty percent. Eighty percent mobile loaves and fishes says it's going to start training the homeless to sell ice cream and bottled water downtown, and they won't have to panhandle anymore for money. I have so many questions on this. When you're saying you're going to train them to do this downtown is I mean, it's going to be in a certain location, or is it at any street corner. You come to that they're going to be doing it. So instead at begging for money, they're going to be begging for money and just giving you something in return. I I don't have the answer to that. Alan Graham is with this group mobile, loaves and fishes. He is one of the premier leaders in this area of helping the homeless in Austin. He's the guy that's driving this idea. He seems to have it worked out pretty well. I don't know if a certain homeless person will get assigned to second congress one two third and trinity. I don't know if they have it planned out to that extent. But here's part of what he had to say about it and should be simple t-shirt hat something. That's known the cart. And the backpack would all be branded pick up their products and enroll out on the streets and sell those to the general public. He says the First Baptist Church of Austin downtown is on board they've agreed to allow their parking lot to be used. They're gonna put one of those big containers that you see hauled around on the back of semis. Or some of these container trains, that's gonna be converted into this place where they they keep the ice cream in the bottled water the trained homeless will show up there to pick up their cart in their goods each day and go out and sell. L downtown and make money, and he says he thinks this will cut panhandling up to eighty percent. I applaud and trying to think outside the box and get something going ida's. No, I probably would not ever stop on the street to get a bottle of water or an ice cream. That's just not what I'm comfortable doing. I'm going to go to a store to do that. I again, I applaud that they want to do something. I just don't know that this is the answer in and how is it just to stop panhandling. Or is it an attempt to hope to get some of the homelessness off of the streets as well. Because I mean, I don't see how that fixes them. Not having a home, but yet provides them with a lot more money in their pocket for whatever they deem. They want to spend it on. Yeah. Well, his ultimate goal is to get the homeless off the streets. He he is the man who created the camp east of Austin where the homeless can go live. So he's putting his heart and soul into this. I would be willing to go up and buy ice cream or bottled water from one of these people if they have on the uniform and their branded as he put it I would do that to give him a chance. Hey, let's see if this works that would be my spirit in going up to these people doing an experiment. Okay. They've got this out. Let me see how this pans out for them. But also to say good job. It's out of the box thinking, you're try this something different. I I would approach them and do that Gary's in southwest Austin with Marc and Melinda. Ten twenty one. Good morning. Gary good morning. I've never been a fan of doing anything to help the homeless of to you know, or with mental health and drug intervention. I took a blacksmith in class. The mobile os and fishers facility, and I was extremely impressed with them. They do a fantastic job, and they will not take any kind of state or federal government because they don't want the the. Authorities sticking their nose into something that they haven't works. Very very well. So if they think this this will work, I'm behind them one hundred percent. Yeah. He's a he's a he's a great, man. He's very passionate. And he says we have some hurdles with local city government regulations that we have to overcome vendors the food part of the ice cream. Maybe not so much the bottled water, but the ice cream part of it. I would think that you would have to meet some kind of regulations, right? I would buy bottled water, and I don't like kids trying to raise money for base phone stuff. Yes. They're just standing there with a sign. They're not getting opinion out of me. But if they're selling water or something of that nature on either by and just put it in the fridge and home, my wife drinks, it Ellen Graham told the downtown business alliance. He said when he moved here in nineteen seventy three he didn't see any panhandlers downtown. Now, he says, they are everywhere. And he says we're gonna try to do something about this. This is his idea of helping. I'm sure the city. Since nineteen Seventy-three. What was that Gary? I think it would give them more of a purpose. You know? Two. I don't know. Like, I said the most people are. The. Oh, the fishes place. I teach them blacksmith thing. They teach them carpentry and stuff, and and they make things and take them out and sell them, you know, and it pays for helps pay for their rent. They have to pay a certain amount. And they learn a trade stuff. Yes. Getting people back out of of just sitting around feeling worthless. To maybe get them motivated to make that extra step to get back into society. Yes. Yeah. Could be Gary. Thank you. They regain their dignity in doing that. Well, it's it's like the Saint when we talk about homeless in general, it's going to be a percentage of that population. That wants to do this wants to as you just said regain their dignity wants to get their feet back under Neath them wants to do this. And then there's going to be the others the dome. All right. Let's go to John on I thirty five. He's got some comments about Texas senators getting down to business today on this idea of giving every teacher arrays a five thousand dollars. Hey, john. Welcome. So John y'all a great show. I actually come in on all three topics you've been doing so one the teachers they work hard. They do great. I believe in both a five thousand dollar range, they make a low income, they should make more and also basis. Well, but in general, I believe all pretty much of a five thousand dollar raise. I mean, a lot of them spend their own money on supplies here. And there, and they have to do homework even after school, and they just work so much they deserve it. I mean, and then America basis well do about second thing. I wanted to comment on was the the homeless population, and this whole mobile os officials doing the ice cream and water thing. Yes. Sounds awesome. I wanna do ice cream ice cream seems like more regulation and more sanitary issues and the melting of the ice cream things dot bottled water. That's sounds perfect water and soda. That'd be a great idea. And then it's like a gateway job, you know, they might get back into the swing of things they feel like they're working. Maybe they'll look for a different job in the future as well. Yeah. Let's hope so it could be a new beginning for them. John. You have a good start. They were looking for. Absolutely. Thank you. Hear the numbers. Five one two eight three six zero five ninety get in here. And join us five thousand dollar raises for all teachers a new program for the homeless to sell ice cream and bottled water downtown. We'll also tell you about the homeowner who came home last Wednesday. And there was a woman and her kids living in his home. Total strangers had moved in while he was gone. We've got that and more coming up.
