"Pass away from Covid 19 last month, Chief Joseph Chacon says their deaths have been stark reminders of how dangerous the virus can be. It's more deadly than ever. And I just urge everyone to please get vaccinated. Rice is one of four local first responders die. In just the past couple of months, A PD has lost three officers in that time to the Covid and went to a car crash. The Austin Fire Department also recently lost a firefighter to Covid, and he was laid to rest earlier this week down in San Antonio. The centerpiece of Joe Biden's order to slow the spread of Covid 19 is mandating workers and businesses with 100 or more employees get vaccinated or be tested every week. A vaccine expert Dr Peter Hotez, with the Baylor College of Medicine, says 80 million eligible Americans remain unvaccinated trying to pull and push every lever he's got start thinking will have some impact. The question is, we don't know what I mean. Is it going to close that 80 million gap down to what are we talking 40,000,040 Million. I don't think we really know federal workers have to be vaccinated. They cannot opt out. Biden's also asking governors demand eight shots for public teachers and for staff. So Texas employment lawyer Raggy done says. What Biden has done here is not unprecedented. There have been other cases in the past, where the state of Massachusetts and most recently in 2019, the city of New York, required measles vaccines or you got fined by the city, he says. More and more companies he represents are beginning to require vaccines and a lot of people are starting to wonder whether or not the next step may be a full nationwide mandate for everyone. We are blood, which is the sole provider of blood for dozens of hospitals in central Texas is pitching in to help out with a nationwide blood shortage.

Greater Austin Crime Commission is encouraging the Austin City Council to approve the increase in police funding next month. As part of the budget. The commission says A PD will be short 156 officers by the end of this month on top of the 150 positions cut last year by the City Council. And millions of dollars likely will be earmarked in Austin's new budget for resiliency plan. City manager Spencer Kronk says The proposal includes four high priority projects. First the Austin Fire Department with support from Homeland Security and emergency management. Will launch a wildfire evacuation assessment to make sure residents have safe escape routes in the events of large scale wildfire.

I was great. It was refreshing. It was relaxing. It was hot some of the time to the time that I was in Arizona. Um, it was hot. But overall, I will give it a 10 out of 10. You can't beat that. I heard two Big Arjun there restful and relaxing yet today I know that doesn't happen much, but I would definitely encourage you to try it if you have it in a while. How were the flights? You've been flying the entire time off and on during the pandemic. How do you compare what you saw out there? Now? What? Some of the earlier periods in all of this, Uh, compared to the earlier periods it I mean, it's back to normal, but we've been slowly moving to that. So I wouldn't say it was a huge increase over the last time I flew, but it definitely is every seat taken. Um And it's It's interesting at the different airports that you go to because in California, the San Diego airport they still have and it just makes me laugh they still have at the airport. This seat reserved no one Sit here and then you can sit in the next one. But yet you're getting on a plane where you're sitting side by side by people, But at the airport, you can sit side by side so they still have some things to work out. But I saw The least amount of mask in California than I have seen this whole entire time. Now. Had they been big mask wearers prior to this trip. Oh, yeah, even when you were outdoors, and you know all by yourself, and you saw someone, maybe walking or jogging, Um, they would have mask on And it was less this time. There weren't um, a lot of signs on the doors about mask, which I was surprised by. I figured they would be the ones that still had the sign seen. If you're not vaccinated, you need to wear this and I saw a few of those. But for the most part, there wasn't much wording or wearing of masks. Which was surprising to me in California, so, but I was in San Diego was in the Southern part. I wasn't in l A. Well, it sounds like good news to me. People are confident they're getting back out there living their lives. That sounds good. President Biden is going to be holding a meeting at the White House today, focusing on violent crime. Gun crime is he likes to call it. He's invited the Democratic nominee for mayor of New York City and others to come in and talk about this issue, Axios Has obtained some of the memos that the White House team is sending out about the rising tide of violent crime in America. And it says that Democrats, including the president, are very concerned. All of this violence could affect Biden's presidency and the political fortunes of Democrats in the midterms. Yeah, um, you've seen. I mean, you just turn on the news. And any time you turn on the news, you're hearing about the horrible weekend that Chicago had her New York had. I even I stepped away from the news a bit this past week. But the time that I caught I heard about shootings here in Austin, so it doesn't matter where you are. You're seeing that uptick in the crime and I don't They're going to have to do more than just come around, come together and say We've got to do something to come to combat guns and guns alone because that's not The huge thing when it comes to the crime up tickets again what we talk about all the time. It's not the guns fault. It is the people behind the guns that people pulling the triggers. It's the judges prosecutors. It's so much more than the gun. It's not surprising that this memo at the White House says they're worried about their own political backsides rather than all of the American citizens that are losing their lives being hurt, being injured. Devastated. Yeah, the top priority is, Oh, we better put together a meeting and get media coverage and make people think we're doing something about it. And they say the president is giving cities the latitude to use some of the covid relief money to hire more police. Melinda and I talked about that back in June when he made that announcement and several big cities say they're doing so we haven't heard anything from Austin along those lines..

"And we talked to a lot of people. The the problem that I see emerging in the house in the Senate is that the house wants to do as speaker said put the money into the district's let the districts use it at their discretion the Senate side. No, we want to go straight to teachers, but the bottom line between those two is this whole property tax discussion, Wes, and it doesn't seem to me that you're going to do much about property tax. Axes in the state share versus local property holders residential property holders, especially without putting that money into the district's hands. So that they can lower their tax rates. All in. And that's part of imagine. What will come out of tomorrow's discussion when we house Bill to the house version of the property type feel goes up for it's hearing tomorrow. And so, you know, there there are so many different ways to look at this. And you talked to anybody anybody will give you a different version of the priority different, you know, approach for how to tackle it. And so, you know, how did you do two separate issues that are so different. But so intertwined you have to approach them both differently and together. I mean, it's. It's complicated for a lot of people. And and. So the the idea is. To navigate. Did you did you? Did you still office or straight? No, that's true. Where? Doing battle with Austin fire department. Go ahead. But anyway, so you know it. It's all gonna come down to you know, is is this going to work in for. The constituent, quite frankly. And and if it doesn't go down the way the constituents want, then they're gonna vote some of these people out if it doesn't go the way that they you know, that they were promised.
