Join the conversation at 51283605 90. Now here are gonna die. Yeah. Oh, my God. That 93 Todd Jeffries, Kenny Raw Meyer, and you had 51283605 90. Interesting story. This morning. A couple of university set of Florida did a study of our housing market here in the area. And basically, they found that Austin ranks second for the most overvalued housing market. Now they tell us now they tell us we kind of always felt that right, But those people coming in from California they you know they sold their homes for $3 million tiny homes at that in California coming here and spending a million dollars was Finding bargains that was like a bargain basement deals. Absolutely. And, uh, and it has increased the value of homes in the Syria. The demand has been incredible, for sure. Does this mean that the demand for home prices going up hasn't been real? It's been our artificial. Does it mean what does this mean? Well, maybe over the course of time we'll find out but I don't think we've seen a dramatic fall off. The market has cooled somewhat. That's true. Are real estate. Guys. We're talking about that on the Show yesterday evening. They have here on K. L. B. J and just Realtors. I've talked to said it's not near as crazy now, as it was in months past. At times when you had 50 people lined up outside of a house showing right get 50 offers immediately and then. Well, now it's more like 10 offers, right. Will you talk to Chris Water? Somebody right all the time. I mean, that's you've heard those stories from him. Surely, yeah, This new study ranked Austin housing market is the second most overvalued market in the nation home selling on average of 50% more than they should. According to these university studies, 50% study was conducted by Florida Atlantic and Florida International University's and basically they looked at pricing data real estate dad another publicly available information on homes in the real estate market. Here in Austin. Now the home values man, they shut up even more. In, uh, in Williamson County in a shorter period of time, Uh, jumping almost 40% in just seven months. This is a This is a full year comparison for the Austin Metro. But Williamson County even more When you start to break it down the median price in the county in 2021 in January, the median price went from about a 767,037% increase in just seven months. Up in Williamson County. The reason why it's hard to believe that the prices are going to fall off the cliff is just because of so much big business and small business interest in the Austin marketplace. Yeah, we see those stories all the time, The business Journal and Austin monitor and that all these companies circling around, you know, looking for places to to put a new headquarters or some kind of additional The building of some kind in that, so I don't see that going away. And are we saying is this saying Todd, if you sold the house back in June for $1.5 million Really only should end about 750 K. That's kind of what it sounds like. That's what it says. Yeah, but But it's you know your findings everything as the old saying. When you got 10 offers the price starts going up and get bit get offers and start competing against each other. Uh, 906. Let's squeeze in Rick checking in from Georgetown this morning, Greg. Good morning. Hey, Good morning, guys. Yes, sir. Great Show a longtime listener. And I'm not a first time color. Um You know, um My wife was having headaches a couple weeks ago, and we, uh On the advice of her primary care position would took her to, uh A scene hospital close by, uh to the ER. And, you know, I find it odd. I see both sides of the issue about you know, nurses being vaccinated, but at the same time, I mean in the ER, we saw nurses. Uh, And masks, some in face shields, and then she was in ICU for a couple days, and then we should checked her out. Most of the nurses up there are wearing masks, face shields and gowns. It's like you know, either this stuff doesn't work. Or We don't and we don't need the vaccine or, you know, get the vaccine and we can go back to normal. And yes, I understand. You can get covid. After you've had the vaccine. You can spread it to other people, blah, blah, blah. It's like, you know, this has to end sometime. It's really getting old, but in that setting in an ICU setting as we've had nurses given his text, Todd, they're going to take every precaution to try to minimize or prevent the transmissibility. So, as he says, they're all messed up, and they got shields and everything else. They're taking every conceivable precaution. I'm just guessing that Standard protocol Baxter. Otherwise you're going to do everything you can try to minimize the potential for contagion from one room to the next from one patient to the next. It is 908. You could jump in at 51283605 90. I just want to share a little bit information involving The search of a new police chief in our district attorney Jose guards. Okay, we've had Doug O'Connell on before he's a lawyer here. We had him on. I guess it was Monday, right last week. Okay. He's he's representing.

Chief Gallardo told him that Jose Garza chewed chief Chicken's butt. For cooperating with the Perry defense team member, Sergeant Perry Sure it was involved in a shooting downtown during one of the BLM protested last year ended up facing a charge shot someone who pointed a gun at him Now he's been during all of that. Uh huh. Well, apparently, Chief Chikane was trying to, uh well, he got he got he got in trouble for cooperating with the the defense team. While he told Fugit that chief Chikane was attempting to curry favor with Jose Garza to be named the permanent chief with law enforcement leaders like this, Sergeant Perry couldn't get a fair trial. This is, according to Doug O'Connell social media post this morning and got a phone record. Uh, apparently, the D A. Was on the phone with Chief Chikane quite a bit. During during this process in this trial involving this, this this grand jury hearing involving Sergeant Perry out of Colin, who was working as a you know an uber or lift driver downtown at the time of this incident, Yeah. Well, there's some interesting some interesting things going on here. There's allegations that not all of the evidence was presented to a grand jury. Some folks were told to stand down and shut up. You know that kind of thing. It seems pretty dirty. Well, I don't know what the attorneys referring to here, but the optics that he's describing certainly don't look good. No, not only say that, at least based on what he's gonna have to get. We're going to get Doug back on to find out a little bit more about this because it seems pretty dirty and twisted. It sounds like it is actually slow down the process of selecting a new police chief.

Oh, my God, 93, Todd Jeffries and Kenny Raw Meyer here on the top of dawn show and you can jump in at 51283605 90. There is a lot said over this weekend this morning from kid cast today, the Austin Police Union really concerned about the response time response time to get to an emergency response time for a police officer to get to you in a time of need. It takes too long. It has taken too long for too long and you just got to wonder. And I'm not saying he's doing this nefariously or that he has an agenda or whatever, but to put this kind of information out there as he's starting to lay the groundwork Such that when somebody really needs a cop, and they can't get one and something bad happens. He's going to be able to say, Well, we've been telling you for a long time. We just don't have enough cops to go around. I don't think we need can cast today to even tell us that at the response time has been increased. I think we see it. We feel it. We have confidence. Several people called the show about a crime, they reported. It takes forever for a police officer to get there, not the police officers fault. This is not the rank and file's fault at all. This is this is the result of defunding and reimagining. But I think Cassidy is head of the union is trying to give his guys the air cover, right. He's trying to, you know, get the messaging out there that You know we're doing our best. But we can only do so much. That's exactly what he says to K. I s Betty Cross response times to violent crimes over the Labor Day weekend are being called unacceptable by the Austin Police Association. The weekend was just an absolute disaster. Kim cast today is the president of the association that advocates for 1800 officers. He says. Police shoot for about a 7.5 minute response time to get to the highest priority calls like murders. But he says that's not what's happening. Probably 11 or 12. Minutes will happen to wait for a police officer to get there when you've been shot or stabbed, er, sexually assaulted or whatever the priority is That's that's not acceptable Casted A blames the longer response Times on delayed Quebec classes, retirements and officers quitting to go to work in other police departments, normally in a in a month, would usually lose about five people. And right now we're losing about 25 people, months, police resignations and retirements or issues being dealt with across the country, Austin Mayor Steve Adler says while dealing with slower response times, it's a priority. It's not the only one police response time is certainly something that has to be watched the suburb the sole indicator of what it takes to have a safe community, and Austin is a very safe community. But it's certainly one factor to take a look at Mayor, Adler says. We need to keep slower response times in perspective. There has been an uptick in crime across the nation. There have been police resignations across the nation, and even with all of that, as it's happening, you know Boston. Our rate of violent crime is lower than most ever major city in the country. The Austin Police Association says the committee is.

I think the last few decades that kind of belong to California I think the next few decades might belong to central Texas as someone who was born here and love central Texas the way it is. I don't know that I necessarily love all That's all those people moving here and changing central taxes. Shapely fears are are echoed by many Austinites who aren't sure the city is ready to tackle such a large housing boom. You know, I guess that's that's another reason why I guess one. We still have our homeless issue here, not being handled because everything's going so well. It's like, Well, if Boston is so bad, why are these people moving here? Why are all these massive businesses moving here once our tax base increasing every minute? Why is it we're home values increasing every single week so because the homeless crisis is not as bad as it's going to be right and homeless crisis today. Is very mild compared to what we're going to be dealing with. I hope you're wrong. I hope you're wrong, but But I tell these are the best of times when it comes to Boston's homeless crisis.

"For being with us on NewsRadio, K O B. J on Kenny Rama or just to wrap up on the discussion. About the origins of the Corona virus. I saw this out of the Daily Mail a study claims to have proof. Chinese scientists created Cove in 19 in a lab and then tried to reverse engineer er. Versions of the virus. To make it look like it evolved naturally from bat. So there's AH British professor and a Norwegian scientist. Who are behind The study of so called retro engineering. In China. They say the likelihood of that being the result of natural processes. Is very small. And assign mentioned. This was widely discussed on the Sunday TV news shows today, and I got to share this with you because what a total lack of Of self awareness. On ABC on the part of the moderator, Martha Raddatz. And the No. He's covered the White House for ABC. Jonathan Karl as they were kind of lamenting, Chief. You know why so much discussion now? And what happened about a list? Not really mentioning at all. Their role. As members of what we call the mainstream media and in turning away from this story. Or such a long time. There is a little bit of how that discussion went on ABC. Earlier this morning. Many people in the Trump administration said it originated in the lab in Wuhan, China, not with bats. They're taking a second. Look at that. Do some people have egg on their face? And why does this matter? Well, I mean, look, it matters for the same reason we were talking about the January six commission. We should find out what happened. This was one of the greatest crises are countries that ever face we should know to start the world's ever faced. We need to know how it started. And, yes, I think a lot of people have egg on their face. This was an idea that was first put forward by Mike Pompeo, Secretary of State Donald Trump. And look, Some things may be true even if Donald Trump said them And there was because Trump was saying so much else that was just out of control and because he was You know, making a frankly racist appeal talking about Kong flu in the China virus, his notion that put forward that this may have are there, he said flatly. This this came from that lab was widely dismissed. But actually there's some real reason. We don't know. By the way we still don't know. We absolutely don't know. Yeah. What an incredible example of lack of self awareness and An inability to acknowledge Their own shortcomings and ABC and elsewhere in the media. For the lack of focus. On this incredibly important topic. 12836 year old 5 19. You can give us a call or send us a text here. On K O. B. J. Buddha judge, the transportation secretary for the administration was out on the Sunday talk shows today. Of course, President Biden was hoping for some summer wrap up of some kind of big infrastructure bill. As of this weekend. That hasn't happened. Reuters reporting that Senate Democrats are planning to forge ahead with a massive infrastructure package next month with or without the Republicans if Republicans are not ready. To get onboard Buddha judge said. The Republicans offer in the Senate that was close to ah trillion dollars for an infrastructure package is encouraging. Buddha judge told CNN that there needs to be clear direction on infrastructure talks. Time Congress gets back from its Memorial Day recess next week. Here's some of what Buddha judge had to say about the overall Biden administration budget and the infrastructure as a part of that this is a responsible budget. And importantly, all of the proposals for spending and investment in this budget are paid for. It's one of the reasons why, if you look into the out years, the deficit actually starts going down. You can't get something for nothing And in the near term, we know that we need to make major investments in our roads and bridges in our education In our health.

The CDC guidelines change that happened yesterday. I haven't finished suspicion that businesses are still going to be really reluctant to drop that sign off today and pull that sign down, especially because they don't have protected immunity from any kind of lawsuits yet. That if you hit it right on the head, because it's easier to just require it and protect themselves than to drop that mask, mandate and risk themselves. Those businesses have already gone through a year of hell they don't they don't They don't need another controversy. Do that, right? No, that I just think that people have when they're gonna want to give the impression took a non vaccinated people that we're safe here so you can come on in and don't worry about it. So I'm gonna make people wear masks. You are well, that means this poor people that have been vaccinated and to suffer through this, we'll just pick another business, which is what's gonna happen. We're going to start looking for businesses that don't have those signs up Pretty soon. It may lead to more frustration, actually. More division.

I think he's whole unfortunate still has more sway than Mitch McConnell. That's true. And the majority leader, Peace of mind Minority leader in the house. He's from California, right?

I am doing great is the winter wonderland in my home? I in my 30 plus years of Boston have never seen snow like this in Austin. And the cold like it is in Austin. It's good at our house. We still have electricity don't have hot water, but the electricity is going But it is. It is stunningly beautiful, but again, stunningly dangerous to be outside. Let's talk about the situation with the electricity. It's estimated that over 300,000 people have no electricity right now in the Austin metro area that Includes customers of Austin Energy Person, Alice Electric Cooperative, and some of the others who provide electricity in this area. And that can be a very dangerous type of a situation it I heard callers on a Todd don throughout the morning talking about health care concerns. One gentleman calling in saying is oxygen system needs electricity to work, And he was very worried. So this is a dangerous situation Market is very dangerous, and I don't know what's going on with Allstate Energy. I know some power lines. In some areas got a lot of ice last week, and I don't know it should not be this bad. I don't think I'm not electricity expert. But it seems like we are not handling the situation as well as we could or as well as we should. Again. I'm not an expert on this, but I'm thinking P I see power lines and my towards my backyard here that they're not sagging. They don't have ice on them. They've got snow on about this situation is not good, but you're right about the people on oxygen. And people of something happens with any type of condition that need to get to Dr Mirchi Room. It's just kind of you gotta hunker down on this thing. Yeah, It is very, very alarming that they're not able to handle this demand, and the statesman has report today indicating that part of the problem. Is the wind turbines in west Texas have frozen up. They're generating no electricity. They are now the number two source. Of electric generation in the state of Texas, right behind natural gas. But about half of the windmill capacity is now frozen up, and it's not generating any electricity. That has to be a part of this problem. It it has to be. You talked about natural gas Mark and I'm a proponent. Natural gas and proponent of oil and gas, especially natural. Glad gas which is clean, which is plentiful. It is plentiful and we need to be smart about this. I know. Ah, lot of people within our city and our global global warming. Folks want to get everything on the wind turbines. But this is this is number one proof positive. Out there by Abilene and Sweetwater, heading the love it better. They have miles and miles of these things, and they're locked down. This is not good for the state of Texas when you have so much plentiful natural gas available. No, absolutely of over 150,000 customers in the Austin Metro have no electricity, and it's been that way since about two or three o'clock this morning. Over the entire state. It's now two million people without electricity. ERCOT is the eyes, the group that coordinates and runs the electric grid throughout the entire state. And they keep adjusting their message as to what's happening Clearly, they're just not able to generate enough energy to meet the demand that's going on right now. If you got to believe that those frozen windmills are a key part of it, it's not the entire Equation, but it's part of it well at 2 11 this morning, I got a new emergency message said Dude, a record electric demand. Texas Electric grid operators directing rotating outages to protect electric grid reliability out of just simply 40 minutes for last length and frequency, the pen on severity of Of the event and says, prepare for possible power interruptions. I got that it to 11 this morning, but again, I'm lucky one. Our power has been on only thing. Don't have his hot water right now. I guess that's probably dealing with a Hot water heater We have out in the garage area. That's very, very cold, but hang in there for those people. It's it's difficult. It is so difficult and scary, quite scary mark for some people who need electricity to just to survive. Yes, And a part of the problem is they don't know when it's coming back on. So all of these people are in their homes. They feel isolated, and they're not finding out Okay, it could be noon. It's gonna be one o'clock. It's that uncertainty that just adds to the tension for them, And this is not a situation in other emergencies like that. When the power's off when you can hop in your car and go to a neighbor's house or go to a relative's house, because I tell you what I would not get outside right now. We live on a little bit of a hill and no way I would go down to my car because of the sheet of ice and then all this snow. Covering. We've got probably got about six inches. I think, Mark. I'm not sure why, but the had measured it, but I think it's around 4 to 6 inches at our house, So I know people have gotten a lot of heavier, heavier snow, But it is It's dangerous to the sad thing.

How Anti-Vaxxers Resurrected a Deadly Threat to Kids

"Had a story yesterday about vaccinations outbreak. Always I don't want to get into an act an anti vaccine. Conversation because I'm not a doctor, and I can't give sound medical advice on the issue. But. But I will read the story now with the measles outbreak impacting the west coast, the anti vaccine movement is coming under fire from doctors and other critics now while the Austin metro has not seen any measles outbreak, yet public health director. Phil Wong an expert on this kind of thing are public health director. He would know he went to class. He took a class. CBS Austin this area is one of fourteen hotspots across America with an increased number of unvaccinated kids that are not getting the United States. There are actually a public health threat as we're seeing with some of these recent outbreaks now did you hear what the doctor said if you decide not to get your child vaccinated, you are creating a public health threat. You are a threat to the public absolutely about fifty percent of the students at Austin's Waldorf school are unvaccinated. Good god. Yeah. And across the state fifty six thousand kids are unvaccinated. I didn't realize the numbers for that high. Austin Waldorf school is in a private school GTS lost Waldorf, I'm assuming that's a private school. Anyway, fifty percent of those kids are unvaccinated. And I guess the things I read online people decide not to vaccinate their kids out of fear that there could be some autism that develops or something like that. However, there's no proof are no scientific study, careful, careful, careful, careful careful what you're saying. Oh. Channel set them off. Pretty hot about this saying, there's no there's no results. There's no study that has any conclusive results. Sounds me. Like on the the parents said to Austin's Waldorf school, a pretty serious about this though. Now, that's a significant number that is I don't know how many kids go there. But fifty percent of them are not vaccinate horses. Fifty percent or completely without a net. It's like good luck to you on your own. If you get sick. Hey, just hang in there and walk it off.
