Yeah, she asked how many people have to die for people to get vaccinated and wear masks, she says. She goes on to say, Do I blame the governor? Yes, but also blamed those who resist and asks again. When will our school board to be brave enough to implement a mask? Mandate? Cave in or it says she's thinking about those people who refused to get the vaccine? Why on earth would they put themselves and others at risk? And, indeed, over the weekend of The New York Times reporting that the U. S.

"Well, it appears that the Biden administration may be pulling back a little bit as part of Including the minimum wage increase to 15 Bucks an hour as part of the stimulus package to the tune of $1.9 Trillion. It appears that he may be willing to do some kind of negotiation after the stimulus package, But there's a lot of debate this morning. Some are calling for the minimum wage to be increased to 15 an hour phased in over the next five years. Some are saying it should be increased now. And it was a campaign promise by the Biden administration to boost minimum wage to 15 bucks an hour and he actually meant led people to believe it would be an instant pay race not phased in. So here we are today at 51283605 90, TJ Finn. And it says on my screen, TJ finished the director of the bass Drop County Business Owners Association. No, TJ weigh in on this minimum wage story. What do you think? Well, first off, most small business owners don't pay minimum wage. I think you're gonna find the majority of them. Don't such a struggle to find good employees. They're not going toe. The majority of are not going to be paying minimum wage. But I think we all agree that that you know the minimum wage doesn't need to be raised over time. You know, That's something we've struggled with for years and years, But in the middle of the pandemic, I mean, that just puts common sense right out the door because these businesses were struggling just to keep their doors open. At this point. Absolutely. You get a chance you represent business owners. Their ambassador, Rock County. I would think this could affect a lot of businesses in your area. I mean, if you had a chance to talk to some of those owners, what do they say? I have talked to quite a few in there. They're very concerned about, um, number one. Are they going to be able to keep their doors open? You know if this happens now, and it's time that they're already struggling in number two isn't gonna push the cost of goods up so much that it puts a lot of small businesses. Under it, And I think common sense tells us if you raise the wage, you know that no matter what the product is, you're gonna have to raise the price of that product to Tonto. You have to pay that way. It's gonna trickle down T. J When I drive through bash drop in other areas of Central Texas. I see Help wanted signs that say 12 13 14 15 Bucks an hour a dairy queen and McDonald's, and you know what variety of places where young people typically work. Do you see the same thing? Absolutely everyone invest. Rob is hiring on. But what I'm hearing from business owners is they're having such trouble. Funny employees, no matter what wage they're paying, because a lot of people is just not wanting to work right now. They would render, you know, stay home and draw their unemployment you know, and then their strip in from the government does some of them are making more money by staying at home than they would be in the workplace because they're saving on child care, and you know other expenses. It's been a few months that I've driven out that way towards bass. Drop eyes. It likely Leander Liberty Hill area Cedar Park, Leander, that Just booming, like crazy with activity and construction. You guys experiencing a lot of the same kind of growth. I bet. Absolutely. You know, I've only been in bass drop Almost three years. No right over three years, and it's incredible the growth just in that short period of time. No kidding, TJ. Thank you so much for weighing in on this T J. I appreciate you. TJ Fen, director of Bass Drop, Business Owners Association said comes down torto, not can they it, Z? What? What you have to do to retain good pull employees. Good employees is just a reality. Joe on the town of Don show this Morning. Hey, Joe. Hey, June Good morning color. You guys are great. Thank you. Um I'm a general manager for a seafood restaurant. Out in marble falls, all right, and the only People. It works for me. They're making minimum wage or under its servers. And they make to 13 an hour. Yeah, most observers $100. Oh, it's always break our Joe. Your phone's breaking up on us. Hang on a second. You see if we get a better signal out there. Can you hear me? Yeah, right. There we go. Yeah, your phone's breaking up Just a little bit, which go ahead. You were saying that your servers are making the 2 10 to 15 and our 13 and hour and they are Making $100 a day working a four hour ship right? So if they working doubles that he got a good chance of making a few 100 bucks, so if we raise the minimum wage My servers makes it 13 my bartenders make 8 52 9. And my cook's. I'll make 10 to 12 to 13 and then dispatchers. 10 bucks. Wow, that's pretty good. Raise the minimum wage. Would lose everything that we've gained back. Finally getting out of covet rubber gloves used to be $35 gates for 1000 gloves now. It's somewhere between 60 and $100 case, depending on what we get it. Which restaurant you work at their you manage. What is it? Which one? You are. There's only two or three restaurants said the owner. Manager Docked Seafood love that place. I love that place. Yeah, that's cool place. We got great food. We'll be having live crawfish coming up this next week or two. There you go. You got a good chicken fried steak to find Mr will be doing so anyway. Everybody doesn't understand. We can give more money to people. But all it does is increase inflation because those costs have to be added in somewhere, which means I have to raise my prices, which means They have to raise their prices. Whatever it is, you got a gallon of milk. Get $3 a gallon raise all the price is two years later. It's $8 for going well and Joe that there's another way. Me too, as well. Your vendors, they have to increase their minimum wage to which means they're going to charge more for the products you buy from them, which it's a you know, another trickle down effect to the customers, of course. Exactly And, you know, not to mention just for instance, I've been in this business 35 years and There is no No time in my career tonight, Remember ordering the same kind of things that I've been ordering forever and ever and ever and one week it's not there the next week. It's double the price and then they send you a substitution. Stuff, Search even Maurin price, So it's been. You know, this pandemic has been brutal on so many restaurants and fires. So please, everybody go out. And support these restaurants and bars and stuff that you can't because we were already safe before the cove its way.

"White area and it's a 30 minute drive away from the more rural part of the county, where more black residents live. Okay. And then actually you also covering a massive area, which is the state of Texas. Tell me about what you found in Texas. Yeah, we have the same structural problems here In Texas, For example. I live in Austin and here. Advocates have been concerned that the wealthier and whiter parts of town which are on the West side. Have more vaccine sites because they have more pharmacies and medical practices. I also looked right outside of Austin east of US, There's the small rural county called Bass Drop County, and in that county, almost all the vaccine providers are in the main city, which is also called bass drop. Basically, there's one cluster of providers there along the main highway and then hardly any other sites in the county and this effects an immigrant community that's a 30 minute drive. From the city of Bass drop people there are afraid of driving into the city for basically anything. They've had run ins with local law enforcement over small things in the past that have resulted in deportations, which was really scared the community so placement of vaccine sites really, really matters there. So Sean, Selina and Ashley were looking in the Southern part of the United States is what's going on. They're happening in the rest of the country. Unfortunately, there's no way to know for sure. The CDC is collecting data on where the vaccine doses are being distributed, but they have so far decided not to release that to the public. But what we do have an idea of is where the existing health infrastructure is think about places like clinics and hospitals and a group of researchers at the West Health Policy Center and the University of Pittsburgh. Found that in hundreds of counties across the country, black Americans were more likely than white Americans to live far away 10 miles in a rural area and one mile in an urban area from a potential vaccination center. Particularly critical question for public health, Then would be our black and Hispanic Americans not getting vaccinated because the vaccine sites are harder for them to reach. Shall Lena. What did you find when you looked at the numbers? Yes. So in the places that I looked into black people are being vaccinated less than their share of the population. Take Mississippi where, As of Wednesday only 17% of residents who got the shot where black even though they make up about 38% of the population. Now some public health officials plane to vaccine hesitancy, which is this fear of getting the vaccine that is an issue that we're seeing pop up in the South, where there's a long history of institutional racism. But there's also this issue of access. You can look at a map and see that there are far fewer sites in areas with predominantly black populations. Okay, so a cascade of problems Ashley, who is getting the vaccine in Texas? It's hard to know what's going on because data's pretty spotty in Texas. If you look at the states, demographic data about 45% of people who have been vaccinated are reported as an unknown race. It's actually the biggest category they have right now, and that's just not super helpful. And no. Well, this is the case station why the CDC put out a report this week, saying that they don't know the race of about half the people who have been vaccinated in the United States. But they did say that among those they do know black Americans are being vaccinated at a lower rate to give you an idea. Roughly one out of every 20 people who have been vaccinated has been black. If they were receiving vaccinations equally relative to their share of the population. It would be more than double that. Okay, so the C D C is aware of this. Which makes me wonder. Are there any commitments from public health officials to get vaccines into neighborhoods where people of color live? Yeah, I'm seeing a commitment from federal and local leaders on this. In Texas County Health officials have said they are committed to getting vaccines to the hardest hit communities, and the binding administration has said they want to make sure immigrants regardless of legal status, have access to the vaccine, and FEMA is expected to create pop up vaccination sites in underserved communities. So you know, what do you see? Officials in Louisiana told me that they're going to use National Guard teams to go into underserved areas to do community vaccination events. But a more common solution that I've been hearing is creating partnerships with nonprofits and health clinics that already have connections in the community. But of course, you know doing those mass vaccination events. Depends on having enough vaccine so that will be even more important in the upcoming phases. Ashley. Shall Lena and Sean. Thank you so much. You're reporting. We appreciate it. Thank you. Ashley Lopez is with member Station Kut and Austin Selina.

"It's morning edition from NPR News. I'm Steve Inskeep. And I'm no well. King Good morning, and NPR analysis looked at covert 19 vaccination sites in several large cities across the southern United States and found that those sites are more likely to be located in neighborhoods that have a higher percentage of white residents than the median neighborhood in the county. What That means is that it's harder for many black and Hispanic people to find a place to get vaccinated. Then it is for white people. We're going to talk more about these findings with the team that did the reporting. Ashley Lopez is a reporter with member Station Kut in Austin, Texas. Selena Chuck Lani is with member Station W. W. N O in New Orleans. She's the healthcare reporter for the NPR, Gulf States Newsroom and Sean McMahon is a data editor at NPR. Good morning, everyone Tomorrow morning. Hey, Sean, I want to begin with you. You went looking for trends that were visible in the early stages of the vaccine rollout. And what trends did you find? That's right. We are in the early stages. It is just getting off the ground. But we wanted to know where vaccination sites are located. So we went to all the states where we could find the addresses of vaccination sites. There were about 15 of these that had them online. My colleagues and I looked at the percentage of non Hispanic white residents in the census tracts of those states. It's basically a neighborhood. Have we mapped where the vaccine sites were in those senses tracks. We identified counties where there were more vaccine sites in places that had a higher percentage of white residents. So when we say it's a white, her neighborhood, what we really mean is that it's one that has a higher percentage of white residents compared to the county's median census track. Now we saw this happening over and over again in the Gulf Coast and in Texas, So I got in touch with Selina and Ashley to see if what they saw on the ground was matching what we saw in the data. Messalina. You have been looking all across the south. Tell me about some of the specific places you looked and what you found. So I looked into three states specifically Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana and one of the places I saw the most disparity was in Baton Rouge. In Louisiana. We looked into all of the vaccination sites that were there, and 19 out of 25 are located in the whiter and wealthier neighborhoods. That's also where most medical facilities are. So when I went to the northern part of the parish, which is a predominantly black and lower income community, the seniors I interviewed there said there weren't many convenient places for them to get vaccinated. These disparities and healthcare access have existed for a long time, and many of the city's I looked at. I saw similar issue next door in Jackson, Mississippi. There's only one vaccination site in Hinds County, which is over 70% Black. But that site is located in the Metropolitan Downtown Jackson area, which is where most medical centers are located. It's a predominantly white area and it's a 30 minute drive away from the more rural part of the county, where more black residents live. Okay. And then actually you also covering a massive area, which is the state of Texas. Tell me about what you found in Texas. Yeah, we have the same structural problems here In Texas, For example. I live in Austin and here.

"From NPR and WB war. I'm Peter O'Dowd. And I'm Cal in borders. This is here and now to state lawmakers in New York, one of band police officers from using chemical agents on Children anyone under 18. Their effort follows an episode in which Rochester police handcuffed and pepper sprayed a nine year old girl as seen on body Cam footage released this week. The officers involved have been suspended and now New York State Senator Samra Brooke wants to take legislative action. She represents the state's 50 50 Senate district and his chair of the chambers. Mental Health Committee, Senator Brooke Welcome. Thank you for having me. It's good to be here. I have to ask What was your reaction when you saw that footage of a nine year old girl being pepper sprayed, you know, my reaction was similar to. I think a lot of our reactions especially for folks here in Rochester, New York, you know, this isn't the first time we've seen something like this. And it was horrific and it was traumatizing to see a small child treated with such violence on by having a pepper spray in her face and more than anything, I think It just added to the need and the urge that we all have to to try to do something about it. But what you're hearing from your constituents, my constituents. We actually have heard from a lot of them. They are reaching out. And there's sick of it. Frankly, they don't want to see their city and their community and national headlines for something like this. It's not a proud moment for them, nor for me and you know, they look to their leaders to say. Well, what can we do? You know, we've been down this road. How is this still happening? To your point about having been down this road before you know. The city of Rochester created a person in crisis team after the death of Daniel proved he was a mentally ill black man who died a week after being in police custody last March. This team is a group of mental health professionals who are supposed to be dispatched to mental health crises related tonight when one calls but they weren't dispatched in this case, So why not? And how did the system failed? This young girl? You know, I'm glad you brought up the person in crisis team and you know, it's very new. Still, it got up and running very, very quickly. I definitely think we need to continue putting resource is into that group of mental health professionals to help folks who are in crisis, but because of a number of circumstances, they were not deployed in this instance. But really, what this comes down to is that under no circumstances should a child be pepper sprayed under no circumstances Should a child be violently pushed into a police car, Having not committed any crime on so we really want to focus on regardless of Who is showing up Can we at least make sure that we aren't attacking our kids with something like a chemical irritant? And so this is the thrust of a bill that you've proposed. You would like to bar police officers from using chemical agents like pepper spray and tear gas on Children under the age of 18. Does that go far enough in your view, senator or is that just kind of a starting point? I think it's certainly a step on the road. To where we make larger reforms. You know, we always look at you know the bigger picture of where we want to move. But also, you know, how do I make sure this doesn't happen tomorrow? And of course, you know, let's remember. According to the reports, the police officers were acting by their protocol, so their policy is that you can pepper spray a nine year old. And that to me is bad policy. Well, do you expect push back then? Or do you think the bill will pass? I mean, is there some counter that you're going to get that says police do need the option of using chemical agents on minors. I I look forward to having those conversations. This was a very quick moving response. It's developing quickly here on the ground in Rochester. So so I will continue to work with both my colleagues in the Senate. My colleague, Assembly member Meeks in the Assembly and, of course, our our local folks here on the ground in Rochester to make sure that we move forward in a way that's going to be the most protective For kids in the future. So that's the big picture policy debate that may shape what happens in future police interactions. But in this particular case, Senator the officers Involved have been suspended with pay as an investigation is underway. In this case, What would you like to see happen next? I would like to see a full investigation and I would like all of us to take that moment to reflect, you know, take policy out of it. Take titles out of it were all human beings At the end of the day? We're all sons and daughters. Some of us are parents ourselves. And let's just think about the fact that a nine year old girl has been traumatized because the adults in her life spread chemical irritants in her face when she was having a crisis, And I think that if we all take a moment as humans reflect on that, it's a very easy answer. That this is never the answer for a nine year old girl to have to suffer. Yeah, it's New York State Senator Sombra Brooke. Senator. Thanks for joining us. Thank you so much. In Texas. Some counties are just beginning to roll out their covert 19 vaccination plans that includes rural places like Bass Drop County east of Austin, Ashley Lopez from member station, Kut reports. Best. Rock County is one of the smaller counties, the state has designated a vaccine hub. That means county officials and others have to figure out how to hold mass vaccination events with few resource is so nonprofits like Bass Drop County cares are pitching in. The group's executive director, Debbie Percent says they're in the early stages of figuring out how to get vaccines administered on a wide scale. We're creating this as we go. With no real model. Most vaccination hubs in the state are in big cities like Austin and San Antonio. Places with way more resource is and doctor does more walks past Rob counties, Local health authority says they've already got a lot on their plate. The problem of addressing how to get vaccines into arms is something that came upon us in the middle of a huge public health crisis. Walk, says she's up to the task of mapping out all the barriers they face in bass drop one of those has to do with how people will sign up to get a vaccine first fall. A lot of people out here don't have good Internet connectivity. That's Edie Clark, a leader with Bass drop interfaith, she says before the pandemic was even an issue groups and bass drop had been working on improving access to the Internet. For thousands of families. It limits access to health care in general, you know, just doing a telemedicine visit. That means some folks are going to have to rely on getting things set up over the phone. We have 95 year old people calling us That Don't you know, don't use text very much, And when you call them back, they think it's a scam because you're getting scammed all the time Percent. With bass Drop County, Kerry says it will take a lot of hours to work out details for appointments and scheduling follow ups for the second dose because many people needed kind of not hand holding, But it's it's all this is complicated, and we're building it from scratch. And then there's convincing younger working people to make time to get vaccinated for, said says. There are a lot of people and bass drop, for example, who commute into Austin toe work. They work long, hard hours, maybe two in three different jobs, and so even finding time to get a vaccine and to wait in line means they are losing money. Their hourly workers often Hourly workers in Texas are often most at risk of getting Cove it and are more likely not to have sick pay or health insurance. And Edie Clark with bass drop, Interfaith says some of these families have no idea what's going on, Lou. What I'm hearing from some of the Residents you know, in in study point are that they're not really aware at all of how to get the vaccine.

"Product. He must become a member of Penn Fed, insured by anti way 35 times. Jeffries Don Pryor. Ladies and gentlemen, you have found the tide of Don shit. This realize it's a big deal. It really is that was squeezing some calling back. People lined up here. Let's see Lance Lance's in bass drop Formerly of the Backstreet Boys, But now he's on the tide of Don show Lance sorry in sync and she got my and sings mixed up. What? Alright? Yeah. And you were singing the new kids on the block. You got them all mixed up. That wasn't my thing, guys. So what's on your mind? That's well, I was thinking about the pipeline people losing jobs and end up homeless. Those hotels they're gonna buy in the Austin And then I lose you. No, no, no, You're here. OK, Sorry. OK, And so think about those properties around those who tell us they're gonna drop pretty quick, You know, Neighborhood's gonna get run down business is gonna get run out of business. And I tried to follow you guys pretty good, but didn't want Mayor Adler's relatives any related somebody who's in real estate, somehow his wife to buy a property. That's just why there were ladies in a property management business real estate business, They sleep in the same. His career of choice is a imminent domain lawyer that Z what a man had his previous job. That's kind of waters. We get a moratorium put on the sale. Those properties are that wanted to a vote when they ever get that way sold after they run down. It can't be used anymore. Yeah, it would transform a neighborhood and clear the way for some of you know, like a transportation corridor. You know what I mean? Listen, joining us on the celebrity news line from the Texas Public Policy Foundation. Miss Ellen Trucks, players with us. Wow, to be it's a big deal. Hang on a second. There we go, Alan. So today the Austin City Council is going to purchase a couple of hotels well beyond what they're valued at. What do you make of all of this? I just don't understand. The strategy especially sent the previous hotels that they've already way overpaid for are not in any way impact things. The homeless issue in Austin. And I don't think that buying more is gonna help, either. There's no There are too many people for us to buy hotels in order for us to get out of this, and they're doing it without any kind of A accommodating other services that people need, you know, job, mental health, transportation, all all of these things that people really need to kind of get off their feet. And so I just it seems like if you're going to do the most efficient and effective and quickest things to help people get back on their feet. Buying extremely expensive hotels is not the way to make the money go very far in the mayor even calls it transitional housing, so therefore it's temporary. What is the long term goal with these buildings? I think that it's just going to continue to be a revolving door of, you know, check in, check out check in check out but again without those services that you know, the city has kind of refused to acknowledge that you need other service that you can't have people addicted the substances while in that transitional housing, they don't want to put any of those that create period and place for people to qualify for that housing. And so what That means is it's just gonna be without addressing Problem, The underlying problems that are causing the homelessness. You're just gonna have a revolving door in those hotels and again. I mean, if it's places that people used to spend what $150 a night stay in e don't understand that this is this is the most effective way to do it. You know, Greg Abbott had set up You know, homeless kind of area housing area much much more cheaply. That really wasn't used. So I'm not. I'm not sure why We don't go that route rather than buying her clothes. And how many are they gonna buy? You know, we're going to start buying the Fairmont downtown and maybe they should buy the double. You know what? Basic by the W Good. There you go. And, uh well, here's the thing. I don't understand why you'd buy another hotel when the first one's not full. Right are the other three are not full, and you're absolutely right there. It just seems like it seems like what we're doing. And in a prime example of this I mean the canary in the coal Mine is is the beautiful four star arch that we have downtown. That's been a shining example of the city of Boston success, hasn't it? The arch downtown one of the highest crime blocks in our city? And so now, what we're doing is we're buying motels and spreading the arch around in different communities spreads a march that makes sense. Right? And and while while they're doing at their enable it continuing to enable homelessness right by making it easier and more convenient to kind of stay on the street if they want to, rather than helping them, you know, get clean or get back home or again addresses the issues, and it's e mean I could not believe my eyes last week when Save Austin now Finally was able to collect another 25,000 signatures. Get this petition on the ballot reinstates the homeless band. And the day after is when Mayor Adler decides to admit that the they're homeless program is not working. Kidding me. If you think about it. Homelessness has united this city against this city Council. It's something that has united us. Absolutely. What do you talk a little bit about? Go ahead. Talked a little bit about about the you know the I'm trying to think of Who's making money on this. You know what I mean? There's a commission check going someplace. The mayor's wife is in the real estate business. Is there some conflict of interest in all of this? Well, I don't know that there is And this is what? Well, first of all the people who own the hotels are making good money because I'm sure the city is paying a pretty premium for for those hotels, especially in this time where people aren't traveling. They're probably just lining up to get the city to write a huge check to buy their places. But what I really feel bad for the people who are living in those areas. You haven't really gotten to say in this process because this is I mean, just imagine, if all the sudden homeless shelter which again does not have any restrictions about you needing Tonto, be off of drugs when you are living there. What is? How would you feel if that opened in it, like next door to your house? I mean, It's just not good city planning. You take existing hotels that are supposed to be in hit areas for travelers who are checking out our city. You're coming here to do business and decide that that's a good place for a homeless shelter. It's just poor city planning, so I really think that this is gonna have a negative impact on those values. But if you guys are interested in in learning more about affordability in Austin in general, I'm going to be Speaking on a Texas public policy foundation virtual Livestream tomorrow at noon on Austin affordability so people can join that at Texas policy that calm Ellen.

This segment Bravo six this news abroad to buy Tripoli countertops and topping Austin's news governor, Greg Abbott this week has sent a strong message to Austin about public safety from the issue of de funding. Police fill their duty to keep the residents safe. Or lose access to all of their tax revenue to the years long issue of homelessness and the more recent issue of camp sites around the city that will be addressed this session. It will include a ban on captain says they're key concerns that he won a lot of fester any longer. Abbott says He'll continue to keep up the pressure on lawmakers to make it physically impossible for Austin or any Texas City for that matter to cut funding to police. And as for the ban on camping, he says, that wouldn't just be for Austin, but rather every city across the state of Texas. Boston's mayor says the homeless policies enacted by his city Council have not been working. Marry Steve Adler tells Caixa and what the city has been doing is not good enough. The city had repealed the local camping ban and press forward on re housing those living on the street but says it's just not working the way it should. However, he isn't endorsing bringing back the camping ban going back to where we were before where we were just hiding. People that were experiencing homelessness and the numbers are growing exponentially is absolutely the wrong solution. It is It's inhumane, he says. The city needs to do a better job on re housing transparency and establishing benchmarks. John Cooley News radio K O B. J lot of activist groups strongly opposed the effort to roll back public camping in Austin, a local nonprofit save Austin now this week did submit more than 24 what it believes to be more than 24,000 valid signatures to get the issue on the ballot and give voters an opportunity to decide whether they want to roll back the camping band this year. Meantime, there's a new coalition called Austin is safer. It's collecting signatures to protect the current ordinance and keep public camping in place, as well as garner more support for things like police de funding. Some Austin City Council members don't believe that the public support is necessarily there for the full funding of a police department. Great, bizarre, tell CBS Austin The public doesn't really want that. And he says the governor doesn't know the first thing about what Austin needs. Governor is continuing to do political theater and talk about Austin, trying to beat up Austin to win political points. What we're trying to focus on civil rights and public. So, he says, the city is answered the call of thousands of people who do want police funds reallocate it elsewhere. To prevent things like Officer involved shootings, You may have noticed a new fencing popping up around police headquarters in downtown Austin. The department says. It's part of security upgrades that started months ago and not directly in direct response to any protest. Officials say the fencing will help keep a PD employee safer.

"bass drop" Discussed on KLBJ 590AM

"Whatever you need. Band AIDS. Has Dr S. Scott been setting on his hands? Not acquiring more ventilators and more ICU bed space. Todd has he been? It's been preoccupied, you know, dealing with Kabo, Kabo San Lucas Mayor Adler, right has don't understand it. They keep throwing this fear out there, but even their own reaction to their own fear. Words does not correlate with the fear because I think, Todd honestly, the the cynical side of me, which is a big side of me right now, it thinks that they want this to happen. I got it. I got to be honest with you. I think they want they almost want to go. I told you So. According to the city of Boston scope of 19 dashboard current numbers for our area show 156 ICU beds are in use right now. With 552 hospitalized. 91 folks are currently on a ventilator now has got urged the public to stay in and avoid non essential travel and group settings while speaking to the Travis County Commissioners Court just yesterday. Any time I've heard the mayor talk about this topic when he's reporting numbers or any ish anything to do with it. Any bad side of it. Most of it is a you know, it's hard to find a positive spin on anything on this, but he almost talks about it with a little bit of a little bit of giddiness in his voice, and any time I do it any time I hear it, I should say I I really think that they would be part of it would be kind of happy if this happened to go. I told you so. See, we were right. We were right the whole time. Y'all y'all? Y'all thought that we were that we were overreacting. No, we were right. We were right. We could share you happen to see all our beds are for all the better for all the better pool. And Yeah, you're right. I just now We're this far in it. How is that They're not ready for any scenario. Yeah, that's that's not good. That's not good at all. Now. Austin currently has a positivity rate of 15%, which is up from 12% of the week prior. And the outlook is grand moving ahead and that number alone right there is a little deceiving, You know, I mean, that number could change. As more people get tested. It fluctuates. It goes up and down. As Scott says, We're just now starting to see cases pop up from Christmas, and he expects to see even more cases in the next 10 to 14 days after New Year's Eve, he says, quote we're getting. We're going to realize those increases in hospital admissions and ICU admissions. This week's, which we will certainly change the outlook next week surrounding counties there seeing those increases. Well, bass Drop County is a 24% positivity rate. Caldwell County 21%. Hays County 19% 20% Up in Williamson County and Dr S. Scott says this is a troubling trend. I want to say this one more time, and I don't want to sound like a broken record. I'll keep it short, but we've got to remember. We got to remember. When anybody is admitted to the hospital for anything broken ankle ruptured spleen, Whatever it is, whatever it is, you're admitted to the hospital for right now You have to have a covert test. These numbers do not mean that there are people lying in the hospital sick. With coveted It doesn't mean that it means that Yeah, Some people also tested positive for Cove it we cannot. They want us to panic for these numbers, but we should not. They keep talking about how our hospital community is, you know, stretched to its limits. When E. Before this virus. We were talking about a nursing shortage in Texas. I mean, that's been a problem for decades. You know what I mean? But I don't see anything from local hospitals, saying these things. In fact, I haven't heard that I haven't heard any hospital officials say. Stay home. We can't handle to take you anymore. No, I haven't heard that. I haven't heard anything from hospital officials we have yet to hear from a hospital official. Henry is in Cedar Park on the tide of Don show. Hey, Henry. Good morning. Just Yeah, you guys were talking about building out new ICU beds and things like that. I'm actually a nurse. I work in downtown Austin and I've been working the covert units often on since the beginning, building out of hospital beds and Burn ICU in Western 12 months. It's just not realistic in any way, shape or form. You can't be. You're telling me that in America we can't put together an ICU unit. In 12 months. No. That's a new hospital downtown Delphine Medical Center took her with three years to build. Well, that's just ridiculous. Come on. That's just ridiculous. You know that I'm not not everything, Henry. I'm not buying that. We built that F when we built that soccer stadium overnight. Give me a break. Sure did that's come on. No, that's just not true. Henry. I'm sorry. I trust your expertise being a nurse in an ICU unit downtown, but I just don't buy it that we can build more capacity. We've been converting non spicy rooms in dicey rooms left and right since the beginning of the panda, also, it's possible. No, that's not building new stuff that's converting other rooms that usually aren't used for ice. Okay, well, Okay, Now you're getting into Hispanics. How about convert more rooms in the ICU units? We have been doing that left and right. The bigger problem is staffing. You know, nursing as a whole, and I'm a nurse. I've been a nurse for the last 12 years. Nursing as the whole losers. Nurses like Terry few other profession. Oh, I get it. Wait, son of nurses nursing in the first nine years, I got it. I totally get it. We've been talking about a nursing shortage. Like a said for a long time in this all across the country for years. Are you indeed overwhelmed right now? From me. We're not overwhelmed or dealing with it as best we can. Um you know, I'm actually on the route heading into work for my first shift this week, and I'll see what it looks like that the last I heard we still had that stays kind of ships. Are you working? I mean, how many days we keep working? 5 12 hour shifts. Yeah. Yeah, so everyone that since the beginning of the fans are like and how many people are patients, you think you've taken care of I know at all facility since coded, we discharge That's not how many we've had. People unfortunately passed away, but we've discharged as of end of last week over 1307 patients just at the one hospital. What do you want us in the community to do? How can we help you? I mean, you know, I mean, I don't necessarily agree with the stay home, but wear a mask. I see people every single day going in and out of stores. Places like Hee. Just ignoring the sign that says where, Max? Well, I don't. I don't see that at all. I'd see you anywhere. I don't see it anywhere. I was just about a Travis County station last night and William singing as you go Far, Texas and two people walked in not wearing a man's The cashier. Guy said something one of them rolled his eyes and one of them started yelling at him, and that was yesterday. I mean, it's It's not everybody, but all it takes is a few people doing that on a regular basis to keep this thing going, Henry, let me ask you this. How long you been in the hospital Care business? A nurse. 12 years, 12 years. Do you need volunteers? How can we help? In tears because they don't have the training. They don't have. I'm not gonna wear their mass properly if they're on a covert unit, so that things like that. Don't really help. Unfortunately, Henry, have you have you got the vaccination yet? I got my first shot seven days eight days ago. And and so your schedule get the next one was a two week gap. Is that how it works? January 15th party than scheduled some of that sugar January. The 15th There you go with no side effects. Yeah, I had to wake in my arm That was less than much. You shot? Yeah. How are the other nurses and how the other staff holding up Good. I mean, you know what a whole lot of resolve of this is What we do for a lot of us. This is leave you It is. This is just another bug and we deal with bugs every day of our lives. Look what you're cutting your kind of downplaying it, Doctor. Nurse. You're You're kind of you're kind of downplayed a little bit. This is what we do. There was a lot of panic in the very beginning from a lot of staff worried because we didn't know the ins and outs of this particular bug. But I mean, we deal with infectious disease every day. So we do what we have to do it. You know, I mean, the patient care business. I take care of people for a limit to what I do. I wonder what the hospital community is doing to recruit more nurses right now. They're offering tons and tons of money tens of thousands of dollars. If.

"They're great with their former players. They were great with the fans. It is a situation where you gotta wear a lot of hatch. You've got to go to that barbecue and bass drop and be a great person and then go to a board room in Houston and be that same person and people can't do that. Tom Herman didn't do a good job, but that Charlie Strong didn't do a good job, but that John Mack of it didn't do a good job at that. But Mack Brown did an extraordinary job of wearing different hats. And, as he said, putting all the babies back in the box, that's that's what being a coach here is because You're gonna you're gonna have somebody mad at you. Every stinking day. You're gonna have somebody you're gonna have people out there who think they know more than you do, And they think you'll have people out there who expect to have a say just because they give money to buy a sweet or give millions of dollars for the expansion of DK are You think they're stakeholder? That's that's the problem. I think well have at this university, but I don't know that you can reverse that problem. I think if you're the head coach, it is your job. Wouldn't Mack Brown say this? It's your job to manage that problem, too. You know, to massage that problem, I and, you know, I always sort of didn't care for his handling of these situations. But now that I look back on it, I'm like maybe that's what was required. You know, our friend Rod Babers was pretty famously, He was the sideline reporter for the Long one broadcast. And was critical of the team and back, sat him down and said, Hey, you're with us or you're against us, and he said All right, Then I quit on you. You've told me before about how Mac would get on your ass about if you're critical of the team, and I think that's because he is that position. He's the number one. He is the CEO of the brand and the least in my lifetime. He's been the one the only one who's been able to pull it off. You know, he's been the best at it. And Charlie Strong was real bad Tom Herman with not great, not great at it. Not great. And I wonder if Sarkeesian even knows what he's doing. Taking on here. I don't know. I don't know if he knows you're not because It's it's just and speaking of Mac Mac was that way because Mac would get on May, Mac and I are really, really I cherish his friendship. We message yesterday after after he got beat, and I cherish this friendship. But it was Rocky because Mac And he grew out of this mentality of either with us or against us, because I think by the time he left, he knew that Cedric Golden had a job to do Craig Way had a job to do. I had a job to do to be critical when you needed to be critical. So, but it's it is a It's A It's a crazy crazy deal to be head coach here. I don't think he have it in too many other places. You don't have it in Aggie land because those Aggie seems like they rally around their coach. All the time. And boy Jimbo Fisher into the year on a big note by meeting Mac, But they want to know where were you 15 years ago today? Uh, 15 years ago to that years ago. Today is today. The day is today going for the corner. He's gone it that chance young sores 15 years ago. Today. 15 years in about seven hours. I was running around six..

"Their questions, not go on and try to cover this on some late night comedians talk show. Trying to cover all this all up. Tony Baba Alinsky wasn't eyewitness. He, he said himself. The big guy is a reference to Joe Biden. He was part of this arrangement when it started saw where it was headed and got out. So you have an eyewitness to it all. And still, the mainstream press refuses to cover that. That to me is so so wrong. And so Mrs s so wrong for the American people not to be able to have the information and for the press not to cover real stories, whose son is being investigated for trading on his name. And if he becomes president next month, he's got the opportunity replaced all those U. S attorneys to replace the Great General. There couldn't be a bigger conflict of interest. Yeah, I like him and I have a lot of respect for him, but I find it hard to believe that if you're in charge Of overseeing corruption in the Ukraine as vice president under the Obama administration, you didn't know your own son was on the board of Marie's MMA, one of the most corrupt gas companies in the Ukraine. There you go. There's this investigation should continue, man. It's this is gonna uncover a lot of money and oh, by the way. If Trump's kids have done the same thing, I'd want the same kind of investigation well, and you know that. If this is Donald Trump Jr were talking about the narrative would be very different, You know, coming out of all the reports? Yeah, it would be very much already convicting him in the court of public opinion. I mean, that's just my assumption is the ultimate form of gas lighting is what it is. Hey, let's see her getting Ah, Traffic update collars, The reporting that 71 eastbound right before 1 30 eyes backing up. That's kind of a common area. Actually, I mean, yeah, big time, but and see Highway 71 eastbound just before 1 30 is backed up big time. I'm not 100% sure how you could get around that mess coming in town from from the bass Drop area. If you're out there in that area, please. You got an eyewitness reports We'd love to hear from you. At 51283605 90 pretty interesting stories. We got some business news coming up. But later today, there's gonna be a major press conference involving crime that has escalated right here in this area of Austin. And this is a big joint task force involving the Feds and state. What do we expect to hear today? Well, the details very slim about this right now. All we know is that United States Attorney Greg So for will be holding a press conference 11 o'clock this morning, with dozens of federal state local enforcement law enforcement officials announcing a new initiative to address the rise in violent crimes in Austin. Wow and the surrounding area. Wow, this the same guy who all the press comment a couple weeks ago, talking about the 13 people charged with all the major drug bust that was focused on the U. T campus and West campus. It's right lots of drug Sees there That was, it wasn't a time they were also talking about an organized crime ring that was breaking into vehicles and things like that could be part of that as well. Yeah, well, you know, the governor has said that he's starting to. He's gonna have to take matters into his own hands. So whether or not maybe this is some some part of that, you know, it remains to be seen like this. The details really haven't been shared very much. So it's but I expect a big announcement. It's a joint press conference, the FBI in the states, FBI, the state you and Ernie's offer us Stern's office and local probably Austin and Travis County law enforcement as well, That's a big deal. Yeah, yeah, And and as we've been reporting all year, the rising crime has is very much been seen. Think, November. October is the last. I remember the report that I think 56% rise in the murder rate. Yeah, well, listen, Mayor Steve Adler. Mr. Combo San Lucas. He still says you're safe enough. Marry. Austin is still one of the safest cities in America. So he his safe is enough policy is not working 512836059. We'll tell you more about that coming up to the top of the hour after local news at 705. Let's see. Listen, I'll take that call right there from an eyewitness report we got Let's see eastbound 71 just before 1 30 got a major accident out there, and we've gotten reports that there could be a school bus involved. We have no indication of kids on the bus or anything like that. I'm not even sure if kids air on Busses this time of day with so many kids were, you know, getting educated from home, But don't let that scare you because, you know, we often hear that just a school bus tied up in the traffic at the very least. Let's see. Justin, are you out there in that area? Yes, They're good morning. I just came through actually headed westbound. Uh, there was it appears to be a pedestrian has been struck. It's in a pretty bad spot there. He's bound. It's kind of where those, uh, the exits have been closed. So if you can avoid it avoided have the, uh Guy covered up, but I didn't look like the investigation Crews were there yet. So it'll be a while. Justin, is there a construction crew in that area? Ah, I'm not that I could tell. There's there's just a lot of flashing light. They've got the right hand lane closed down. It looks like but the body was in the middle of the highway, so it's not a good situation. Thank you, Justin. Appreciate that update, man. Even though it was bad news. I appreciate you chime in here.
