Virtually all private owner operator trucks and half of the fleet trucks that are used for moving containers across the nation were shut out. So in order to offset the problem, it says transportation companies started using compliant trucks, low emission to take products to the California state line, where they could be transferred to non compliant trucks, who could not inter California. But this created an immediate bottleneck, bottleneck that builds over time. So it doesn't matter if the ports are operating in 24 7.

"This roundabout would work. Maybe nine months out of the year when we're not in the very peak of season to try and keep traffic moving but there's no way to change anything coming up on the other side of the bridge. I mean you got what you got right. It's all part of. It's actually all part of a system that dot the Florida Department of Transportation has recommended doing some things with intersections on the other side of the bridge and working on that alternating light. And so we're trying to put all these different things in place including three stop lights that GonNa go down here right near Times Square. We're trying to figure out ways to give people chances to cross the street where they don't interrupt traffic. We're trying to figure out ways to get to keep the traffic moving without stopping more. Yeah one of the biggest problems is the people crossing the street everywhere. I mean I think Margarita Ville when that will eliminate some of the ways across conflict hoping so. What do you think about Margarita? Ville you gotta remember. I have a a holistic county view and I'm guy who grew up here. I live in Cape Coral. I love it I was going to say. I'm not gonNA comment on it. I think it's GonNa be great for the beach. Look I know that Fort Myers? Beach actually became a town because diamond head but diamond head is fantastic. Stayed there a couple towns. I think they've really added to the beach into the town. And I think I think Ville will add to the town as well and I think will it be different. Sure it'll be different but I grew up here. When Crescent Beach Family Park was was hotels? It was like a days inn for my whole life until hurricane. Charley hit and and so things have changed overtime and they've always changed for the better. And it's an anecdotal experience that I had but I was at the public's on Fort Myers beach couple Couple months back listening to some tourists talk to each other at the Deli counter. They know who I was and they were talking to each other and they said hey you know it looks kind of run down towards the base of the bridge and I thought wow. I don't want that to be the first impression that tourists have and so I think new construction down here. We'll help Kinda lift the whole area and I think it'll be great synergy for the entire beach because you know look at look at. Orlando you stay in one resort in Orlando and you see all the other resorts and they all succeed of fail together. They all work together and you may not go back to the same reason because you saw another one. You want to do great. What's the relationship like between the county and the government here on the beach right now? I think it's good. I think it's really good. I think he's got a couple of great New Additions to your council down here that I just really enjoy getting to work with and I think it's good. We're GONNA move move forward. You know. Look in the heat of battle when we talk about hurricanes or any other disaster it always gets messy and you know the the important thing is to understand that everybody has the right intention. They're all coming from the right place. Everybody was trying to protect the residents that they serve. We just had different ideas on how to do it and at the end of the day. Once you're through the mess then it's important to come together and realize that you're serving the same people and you're trying to help the same people. I just not to be a Debbie.

I'm in <hes> you know. I have a heart like everybody else you know you. I feel for those but you just try to plow through and you just do the best you can you try. Not you try to keep it together. I don't wanna i don't wanna stay on this subject for too along. The beach prepared for something like that for if there's some crazy dude with a gun. I don't know if you can never for be prepared for something like that. You know that that that just happens. <hes> unprepared okay. I don't know about well. The guys in the cops in dayton were certainly prepared. I mean thirty eight seconds is is as you can be. They were and that was really an incredible response. <hes> of course that's that's a that's a defined area where the <hes> get together every friday night and over weekends and they know that's the action much like downtown fort myers. I'm sure sure there are a lot of police presence down there. Were a little more spread out down here on <hes> so you know i. I don't see that <hes> that sort of thing happening but i will tell you on my way here this morning. I people say there's no cops on the beach. Well i passed <hes> my seven eleven down by me and someone must have got hit on the bicycle. Oh no we're <hes> <hes> there were three or four cop cars in there with <hes> with all deputies sheriff deputies and wall so with the fire department they are administering interesting to this guy had his head all bandaged up and so forth and i wanna stop i can to keep coming down here and then i passed a little motel you know pass the the catholic church and there were there. Were three cop cars in there. Something happened so there are there are <hes> deputies around here just because they're not right here always right visible. They're close by so they were here this morning and i noticed every. Is this guy here too. We that's a new spot for the sheriff sign the sky thought they i thought that was the camera for this show. I wish someday someday. We have a brand new camera. Hopefully it's not people yeah. Come along with. Thank thank you. It's due to guess like you keep the show going. Keep an interesting thank you so. Let's go back to the council meeting. After the i know you aren't on vacation but the the council takes a month off for people to enjoy the summer and go on vacations and things like that the first council meeting back. You're the the chair because it wasn't back yet and the one of the first things you had to deal with was dead bodies on the beach according to john hyme the water moccasins so when when you hear somebody say their dead bodies washing up on the beach i mean i've seen some dead fish but i haven't come across a dead body. When i'm running it. What what is he. What's what's what's that all about you know. I don't know what that was all about to tell you the truth <hes> there there was a a a gentleman over on captive atv that <hes> had an incident and they couldn't find them and and he did come in with the tie the next morning they found his body up there but <hes> i haven't heard of one here on the beach <hes> so although there was talk there was a rumor about a body but i can't confirm that whether there was or not but <hes> well. I don't know what he was talking. He was talking about the water being so oh nasty that nobody he's trying to scare people so what i what i'm hoping you can do is. Let's set the record straight on the water. Well you know i'm i'm. I'm not an expert on the water but i'm slowly becoming one and <hes> like everybody else and i will tell you that <hes> that fellow that he had there with the amputated leg and i felt naturally you couldn't help but feel for the guy and <hes> and i don't know what his situation was. I don't know whether you went into the water with <hes> an open open moons owns or who knows what an and i'm not gonna make an opinion because i don't know but <hes> but i will tell you that <hes> i'm in that water every day i fish and i'm we've fishermen and i'm up to my knees in the water every day and have been ever since the order cleared up and i've never had a problem and so you know i can it happen. Yes it. Can it can happen here can happen anywhere around the world where somebody will catch an infection in the water that happens but is it a is it a widespread problem album here certainly not you went to the screening of the movie a couple of weeks ago. Didn't you had trouble waters. Yeah that was great. You know <hes> the <hes>. The movie itself was put together very well. Oh yeah and they have a tremendous <hes> panel there <hes> and not only not only are they panel members but a lot of them are the board members on the clues <hes> collusive order keepers board there and very <hes> very talented group very <hes> you know m._d.'s and so forth and they're all doing their studies and their different pieces of it and i was i came away very very impressed by and <hes> i know that <hes> as they said <hes> you know <hes> you know there's good news and bad news. The good news is we're here. <hes> looking at your problem. The bad news is that we're here looking at your problem and <hes> so but i feel much better that <hes> it is being studied by these <hes> these professionals and it's gonna be a comment from somebody. I don't know show dallas shaw dallas. I don't know if you guys know who that is. Out of. Four years. Lots of bodies have been washed up. I i still i don't you know what that means or who who's talking about wash up but i haven't seen a lot of them. Wash up you know this has been a pretty good year. Though in terms of the red tide that has to do with the rain or the way the governor's change things but i remember a year ago we were looking at dumpsters full of fish and all there was a <hes> a guy came up to me at the outrigger about six or eight weeks ago now and <hes> he came up and put his arm round and gave me a big hug and said you know right you campaigned leaned on clean water and by god since you've been elected the ward has been fantastic and i just said thanks to take credit for that and he said of course i do thank you very much but we've been very fortunate this year in in that <hes> we haven't had the storms and so forth and of course they they lowered the lake increasing capacity and and everything else so i mean they know what to do. It's just a matter of doing it and it sounds to me like they're on that <hes> that path now to continue doing what's right next topic <hes> lawsuit against the city moving. I'm looking at you to see if you had any other questions. I i did one before and you took paid ray for the whole hour right ahead so i mean i mean they don't start that again so go back to the point where the gentleman that was there speaking about things that he wanted as far as showers at the beach and you know sign up about the water quality i was a little confused because there are showers at at some of the at the parks so that people can rinse off so i i wasn't sure if if he was saying wants them you know it just sounds to me like you want them everywhere and <hes> <hes> and i guess you know that that doesn't on the surface that doesn't sound bad but <hes> what i usually do as i look around to our other municipalities palliser santa bell look benita look at us all these other communities long beach. What are they doing you know and and i don't see that i don't jose that <hes> you know but <hes> i suppose if it got to a point i.

"So Wednesday and Thursday from nine to twelve in the off season. Yes, that's when we're open from April fifteenth to October fifteen so if you're here on the island, and you really wanna find out about what's going on people that are there. We'll have more time to talk to you than they would in season. So it's actually a good time to stop in. There's very good time to stop him because many artists enjoy painting during the summer because a quiet time for painting. So you can walk in see artists working on their work or on the wall. Lots going on at the gallery during the summer, and it's a fabulous building was purpose built as an artist sociation in nineteen sixty eight we just passed our fiftieth anniversary as building and our organization is going on the sixty eighth year. And so the organization bought the property or from the town in no from an individual good the property from the Zimmer family three quarters of an acre for ten dollars in one thousand nine hundred sixty seven so that's some community minded people on this island that want art and culture. To be part of this island. Zimmer family also donated some of the land underneath the fire station. So I mean when you think and see these are the stories add that I think we need to find the original people that can fill in all these stores because these people are still here, but we don't know for how much longer we will have access to their stories. So yes, yes. Yes. Yes. Well, thank you very much for letting me talk about the art center, Tom Pam been involved in the Fort, Myer speech art association. Probably six years, we moved here seven years ago. Maybe a year before we got linked into the art gallery, and we slowly started helping out a little bit more a little bit more got real than like a fish. And now, you Pam takes care, publicity and some of the grants administration. I'm the president. I do the website help out with repairs. Are you also both artists pantley profession pip? Pam puts art on the walls. She after shows, I do not put art on the walls. But I've painted the bathrooms. And what drew you to Fort Myers beach? As a Californian who went to these coast for work when it's time to retire. I wanted to see the sunset on the west. You can't afford to go back to California, necessarily, and we truly couldn't and Fort Myers beach. We had come down to Florida. And this turned out to be where we found where we wanted to be. Yes. Yes. So we need to have you guys on the show Saturdays. Maybe. And when he I mean, I literally locked brand down the street and tackled common and Pam and Essendon to come over and do this. So when they hate has time to prepare. He can tell you about all the artful and wonderful events that happened at the art association. Yeah. Of course, of course. Thank thank you very much. Thanks for X payment, Tom for stopping by. Thank you guys for going out, and grabbing people you two are incredible. You are naturals at this. And I know it well Kim's going away for the summer. She's going on. She always goes away on a summer vacation to visit family and Utah and all. All that. And this isn't a paying gig. So don't get your hopes up. This is free. But you guys are awesome. We might need to spend you off into your own show. I'm from the mound house. Right. Right. Well, we get all the historical perspectives of the people that you're talking about. Because obviously, you would be a better person to interview those groups of people, then I would I would love to boot limited run series of all the people who tell this because I'm forever trying to plant seeds with graduate students because a lot from Florida Gulf Coast university get involved at the mount house and someone must need a thesis. And when you like to write about all the things that got saved in this area. There's so many stories about things that came really close to being lost. And we're saved any final thoughts. We are well over our time. But you guys did awesome today. See how fancy our goals time. Wait, which one of you was hesitant on coming on? I know it wasn't both of you. Okay. You killed it today. You both killed it today. It was great. I'm starting to shy and it's Yale. Okay. It's nice that you know, what everybody when she probably is bridge. Any final words. You wanna say about today or about coming on the show or about anything you want to? I just want to say again, just as Ellen just said it is so important that we capture audio we captured the audio history. One of our other experiences for Polaner section two point. Oh was having Russ Carter. We sold a dinner a night with Russ Carter to talk about a sterile island and all of the history behind this island because Russ was also one of the original doses at the mount house. He's got incredible story. So we need to hear these people's not only hear their stories in writing. But we need to hear their stories in audience, and I agree that serve their voice and audio you can paint so many pictures with just the sound. And that's a great idea, and I'll get to work on that. Okay. That's my area. But you guys have to be the talkers. Well, we can be the talkers we could also be the organizers. Yeah. Even if people would not feel. Coming on your radio doesn't have to be on the show. We could -pletely recreate shows podcasts at are a private experience. Yes, archived, and you don't it doesn't have to be a show could be you can listen to whenever you want to listen. And you know, we can go to an office and record it when people are comfortable, and that's you know, that's all a lot of them are done now. So it's it's not really like Kim just likes to be on TV all the time. So we had to incorporate the Facebook thing. So that's why we have that. But anyway, vinyl talk off line about how to get that organized. I'll say excited great idea. See? If nothing else happened today, we have another great idea that we're gonna be looking forward to. Long on ideas. Awesome. Well, thank you guys for coming on finding us, and we hope to see guy. Guy soon and thank you. And we will see you guys next Saturday live from Pete's timeout.

"Great Fort Myers beach restaurants where you get to taste their food. There's a beer garden. How many different flavors of beer do? We have have corona regular corona we have Stella we have a new from dead buried the dead brewery. I believe in Fort Myers. Wait a second. Now. Four that don't think Jerry, the, Dan, I think it is very the dead when you fly to marketing school and think of a name for your business. I mean, come up with bury the day. But I wanna go to drink beer that. I. Point tasty, not happy at all. And certainly not bitter. It just went down real smooth. I guess it doesn't matter. What the name is. Yeah. Tastes. Good tastes good. Bella. Budweiser. Jeff shock top new moon. No not this year. And not that wonderful red ale from last year. Is really really good. And after all it's Cinco de mayo. So we had to throw today in there. Today. Yes. Yes. Yeah. Didn't know that. So have you guys? I know I've had you here. But when you were on your break, did you get a chance to taste any of the food yet? Not yet who do you know who some of the food tasters are like, I know there's a contest going on do, you know, who are any of the Mars secretive? I know that. Competition or not at our next break. I will say, okay. Okay. The answer to that question. So my job the cool thing about something like this other than the food and the drink, and the camaraderie is that you guys basically know everybody there you can't stand in one spot without somebody walking up to you one right after another saying Hello when when you get involved with organizations on the speech, you realize that it's really a little tiny town. There are the the current census numbers that they're sixty two hundred people that consider Fort Myers beach their residence home. And of that, I would say there are probably a few hundred that are involved in every single thing that goes on in this island uninvolved in five different groups. I think Gale's involved in at least that many, and there are well as I said, we have nineteen different not for profits. That are in the alliance of not for profits. Yeah. And you just wind up overlapping, and everybody's got the same story. They're working on some project, and they put it in the wrong, full too. Because. No, the Hansen the right place, the files and the Ron folder right colors in their on spanks having done the show now for about a year. We started like before season started last year, and you there's deputy in. And you know, you start to get to know everybody because everybody's the people that are involved you see more than the regular people that are living in their houses doing their thing. So. So what was the impetus for you to start beach talking? It'll tell you. It's a great story. I appreciate you asked me. So a man named Jean eighty one years old was sitting at the table at peach timeout and Kim, and I would come down for exercise or exercise on the way down and one time it was too crowded to sit. And so he invited us to sit at the table and the from there. Well, chick Kim would tell it differently. Of course, I went over and set and cried in the corner somewhere because there wasn't a table and she sat down with, gene. And then she yelled at me to come over. And then we have been friends with him ever since and that was like three years ago. And so we would come down every Saturday after that and just sit with a meta stable and everybody knows gene is that goes to time square. And that's how we met him. And that's how we started come out. And then when we're like, he knew all these different characters from the beach. So I said this this is a radio show. I need to interview all these people, and that's how it started. Then after that Jackie was the first guest, actually. I'm Jackie was the first guest. And what happened was my tape. Recorder wasn't live at the time. My tape recorder. I would record it and go back, and edit it and then put it up on Facebook. And whatever my tape recorder fell off the table the first time and didn't when I put it back up I recorded over the interview with her. So she had to come down again the next day.

Down here to beat us to take the month off, really. So what's that slow or can be? So it's bringing something down here each that. When it's needed, right? Are you looking forward to the new hotel when it comes in? I absolutely. Yeah. So excited about it as awesome. So tell us about your business. Appreciate that.

And in our board of directors are all volunteer spreads out from there. But no, I it's just a lot of fun. How many members are on the like volunteers are on the chamber? That's another interesting point too. You don't have to be chamber member to get involved here. I believe the sand sculpting event, she has over six hundred volunteer thing is awesome. That event is crazy and think we're looking for possibly five or six hundred I go to a meeting tomorrow afternoon volunteers for the boat races. And it's the community to make this happen. And a lot of the volunteers again are not chamber members say they want to be a part of stuff and they enjoy being out in a shot in the sand. Yeah. Awesome. So if there's a business that time businesses that can you know, you have having a little mixer or anything like that. Where new businesses can show up and try and get a feel from the current board members or current businesses that are on the board that can say, hey, come on this make this make sense.

A copy connection and they're just mixers Connor Irma. And or rare businesses had actually had helped what about red tide? Did that have a negative impact on your or was it kind of a wash? We were. I was a part of the chamber measurement of it. And there were literally millions of dollars a week and the beach businesses that were heard if killed we didn't even we didn't notice a drop, and again, we're for Irma. There are so many people hurt business wise yet we did. Well, it's good. And we didn't seem that we didn't notice a dip in sales because red tide. Can't explain all right? What is it about Fort Myers beach? And I'll let you get back to business that you love why why is this such an awesome place for you to be and to participate in and to volunteer and all that the obvious stuff is. Community getting stuff done being part of something a complex stuff. But a lot of the people I've been doing this a number of years as board members have served their terms and gone. It's almost like a second family when you get involved in. We're putting stuff together we have a ball together. Right. And it really has there's been there's been lifetime friendships.

We have our annual five K, we call it, the turtle trot and registration is through the Fort Myers track club or on our website, WWW dot lovers key dot org. The race starts at eight AM. And at ten AM. We're going to have a family fun day, which is going to be really great where you can get a paddleboard a kayak canoe for free from our concessionaire, and you can spend time in the park all day on on us. We love that race. We've run that race before it runs through the woods out there on the trails. Oh, yeah. Starts in the parking lot. And. Then goes down over the dock all the way to the water, and the pavilion is the kind of like the finish line where they give out the war awards and have the food. We love that racist that where the the fun day is going to be or is it going to be backed by the concessionary out by the concessionary, by the beach. And then also the kayak launch is on the canals that are out near near the maritime hammock the forest area. The great thing about the maritime hammock area other than it being shaded is also because its hard shell pack there. It's really great on your joints. It's a stable surface to run on unlike the sand, but it's also really good on your joints. It's very forgiving. So it's a really great race people like, oh, yeah. And it's very well attended. And they always have the Fort Myers track club, always says a great prizes, and you guys providing the prizes and trophies and the daily the prizes and awards. We do it through the Fort Myers track club. We do the event together. Awesome. So what else is going on a lover's kin? No there you're in. In the middle of the whole big project. So how's that going? That's going really, well we had our official groundbreaking in December. But we're really going to break ground in probably in September of this year as we all know when you're dealing with estate job. It takes quite a while to get everything done legally. So we're going to be breaking ground officially in the fall and the building will be done next fall and look for a really great events and really great educational opportunities and class trips for kids and just a lot more things happening at lover ski. Okay. Awesome. And so what what exactly telling everybody what your responsibilities are down there. Well, I actually just took a new position with lovers key. I'm the executive director of the friends of lover ski organization. So I'm responsible for our short and long range planning and just what we're gonna use the building for. There's been a lot of discussion about the building. And we want to make sure that our ideas that we're putting into it right now. Have are able to be maintained. So we're going to be looking at raising money to keep the programs going and to raise money to create partnerships that are lasting that will benefit the community long-term such as with F G C you aspera bay aquatic, preserve and Kalisa water keepers. So I imagine you get up in the morning, you go, man. My job is awful. I work at lovers key state park, so hard. I can't take it. I love my job. Sure of what I do. I wake up every day and pinched myself. I can't believe I get to get paid. I have to go to the park again. Oh my goodness. I have to take the tram down to a beautiful beach is the Trump still running. It is. Okay. I thought they stopped the tram now they stopped doing it with volunteers. But we're still doing it with the concessionaire does the tram down to the beach. Now, the beach tram this isn't the the town tramp. Okay. What is it like a buck? No, the the the tram that takes you from the concessionaire down to the beaches free. Oh, cool. It's included in your park admission. So if you had a million people watching beach talk radio right now, what would you tell them to make them want to come to lovers key state park? It's just an amazing place you go in there. And you forget that you're in close proximity to several major cities. It's quiet. It's peaceful. The tagline is discover old Florida, and it really is old Florida annual Cebu to fool wildlife annual just have a peaceful wonderful day and you'll see dolphins. It's one of the best places to see Mana t-. It's just very special. You know, sheila's walked by this this little studio we have out here on oldest zero boulevard at least five times, but she will not even give me the time of day. I know meet it in a negative way. But she doesn't want to be on the radio. Ellen go-getter. I think Ellen to get ceiling over has anyone ever seen anyone tackle seal like in the middle of hysteria boulevard. This probably the only way we're gonna get her on all comes L. And again, we're working seal. The seal angle, I know you are to feels a private person she has been. Chasm to me has had enough exposure and would prefer to just be private citizen. Publicly. I mean, she does so much and she's involved in every kind of activity on the island, but she doesn't want children want PR. Here's one press. Yeah. And I can understand her position. I can understand that too. So so we'll respect her privacy. I keep working to fill me. Keep working at. Thank you, Debbie so much for coming on from lovers key, the friends of Loris K, you guys are great for booking guests and all find all the most famous people out there. And I wanna tell you about one more thing that we do is is w why which is why we know a lot of people, and you can you can Kim in on this last year. It's little over a year ago. A group of not for profits came together on this island and form themselves into the alliance of not for profits on Fort Myers beach, and the organization has what are their fifteen or more of us nineteen nineteen now. So it's it's it's friends lovers key. It's friends of the mound house. It's the Women's Club. Right into the library was nineteen. But what I think is really cool. We even have some of the churches involved, so churches that are involved. The Qantas club is involved, and we do projects together. So that we raise money for each other. I agree Ellen. That's. Most wonderful thing every time. I attended alliance meeting. I always leave with a smile on my face because it really makes me feel connected to the community as a whole, and that's what the women's clubs about. And that's what the Women's Club wants to stand. For is. We want to be an organization that umbrellas all the nonprofits on the island. And we want to be the organization where you can come and meet in our facility because we support your efforts to raise money for your group. And a little fun fact about the Women's Club. It's actually woman with an apostrophe S, and it's open to men we have male members of the Women's Club. Yes, we do. Right. Which is leading people to think that maybe it's time for a rebranding effort and name change. What would be called what are some suggestions? So what would usually just I I don't know his first time I heard of it. I need time to ponder contest. Oh, actually, that's a fine idea. We've made you that we could do it as a fundraiser in that you have to have to listen everything's a fundraiser. Well, that's what we do. Right. And I'm actually involved in the Women's Club. I'm the co chair at their capital campaign. And we're raising money to redo the building make the bathrooms and building ADA accessible, and we actually have talked about rebranding it and coming up with a new name for it. When we do the renovations. Awesome. So I think it's time because we are for everyone. Not just for women. Exactly. Exactly. All right, Debbie. Thanks. We get everything out there. You wanna tell so? Right. Cool. Cool. Yes. All right. Thank you chomping at the bit. Come on gale get back over gale get back in here.

"Win. It's pretty windy here. That's. Real win right there. I would love for them to to do something like that. Because it would benefit the staff would have a place. I think. I had a better idea. I think that if kids get in trouble, let's say they're twelve or thirteen Levin twelve or thirteen and they get caught vaping or something. Like that. You know, you're not going to send him to prison or anything. Right that right. You should send them to river walk or beach walk and let the older people throw dodge balls at them not in their head. But the older people now that would be fun for the older people, and the kids would learn is the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard. I think everybody wins in that situation. The parents get a kick out of it the old people get a kick out of it and the kids learn their lesson. No vaping. Or you're going to the old, folks. Home to get dodged somebody's gonna get their shoulder hurt. Now who is put the dodge balls and little air guns. Please. I think that there's probably some older people that would like to see younger kids, but not all of them. You wouldn't think so are people that interact with the children, but it'd be like special time. Yeah. Like before naptime, they have these big wagons that they put all the kids in and take them for that time for the kids with the older people either one either one, and we'll them through because that that would I know that that would be a great benefit for both the adults and the chil I kinda liked the dodgeball idea. All right. So everyone go see Jean if they wanna go see, gene. By the way. If you missed the first part of the show, I need some election signs one sided election signs when project working on. I can't tell you to secret or renovate Sary's coming up. And if you don't have them, maybe, you know, can scoops them up you better not be making something for me out of plastic furry anniversary. I wanted to talk about an idea. I had about the little league down here. See what you think that's a segue. I know what we're in for Janice show up. Right. Is Jan here. I know she was on a really cart the last time. She was here. But we're going to talk about the film festival, right? Now, film hero about the films and the. Art, called art and culture Ziems. I don't need everything uncultured. I don't even think I've ever been in a museum like a real museum. I haven't gone to anything in Washington DC, you're such a historic historian. I didn't I went to like when we were at the you never went to the baseball hall of fame. Oh, no. I've been to that. That's not really. It's been a long time, by the way. So my idea for the little league is let's say you, and I call the Red Sox and we get for spring training next year. We get like two Red Sox and ask them if we can get them to come down to Red Sox players play reds on. All right. You're you're trying to be funny. It's not going over. Well, but so we ask to borrow to love that idea. Now, everybody loves dodgeball, though. That's what we should do. You get old council members and new council members on Fort Myers beach dodge, dodgeball, on the beach paint dispatcher not for not for Ray that'll hurt. It'll hurt. The gentle ones. The now this system could square on her balloon square off a nice little court. Hey, Jim square off an ice on the beach and just have Boba Reno on one side with Tracy gore and some of the older. My St. keep going. All right. So my idea is we try and make contact with two Red Sox and have them because the Fort Myers beach little league is doing always doing things to raise money because everybody every little league needs to raise money. We have connections. Right. So we haven't come down. And like, let's say in. I don't know when it is spring training is like I don't know February whenever they come down. And we do like our eighty s show at the beach Baptist church charge twenty five dollars for a show. And we interview the Red Sox now, I know I might have to get a guest host because you don't know a lot about baseball. Hey, well, you know, you're turning it the wrong way. You don't know. A lot about camera. Stop so. Then stop interrupting my thought I'll forget the whole idea. So we have the show at the beach Baptist. Right. And we charge twenty five dollars for the kids to come down and see the baseball players. But after the show we do the show for an hour after the show they sign autographs. Roll the kids the kids get to ask them questions about baseball. It'd be like a day of their life. We'll make in for their and then all that money. That was raised goes to the little league. What do you think of that? I think you criticize that if not just we'll just -rupt into a game of dodgeball. I think you were asking the people who you're trying to benefit to pay. Well, the Paris. Yeah. Obviously you want the kids there. But I still think that they would pay to to see the Red Sox to the kids like the kids would be the ones in the seats. The parents would have to stand up on the side. There wouldn't be allowed to ask questions. That'd be about the kids. What do you think? I I have to put that in my reserve. I gotta think about it. With your twenty five is a lot depends on how much Shannon wants to raise for the little league. No, right. It depends. Yeah. You wanna price that people are comfortably people on the beach of money, they'll pay for it, maybe twenty five to low you seen some of these buildings down here. You know, how much is the cost the house? These people have money. House. We ain't living down here woman. Live in far away. So the other thing we want. Where is Jan? I don't know so Peru's now. No, no, no Jackie O tells if she sees she sees, Jim. Well, we'll see you on a little early cart. Right. Still gonna be Kanye lemon. She in the house, and the other thing I wanted to talk about I was hoping to save this until the end was because. You keep messing this. It's the wind. The wind is blowing it the the column that I wrote for the my other job the podcast business journal was about burn out. And I wanted to talk about that toward the end of the show because it's it's generate a lot of negative vibes toward me like people. That's yeah. My feelings were if I had feelings it'd be hurt after what I wrote then. So a little too rude. I didn't wanna be wondering to be honest with you. I think I am going to say that until the end, and I'm gonna bring I'm gonna bring Dan hours on because Dan was going to we were gonna have Dan toward the end. But what may we'll just swap Dan in for? Jan Dan for Jan Dan for oh one or two. Gimme the mic and go get Dan. And then you can find your guests. Of course, my guess always show up then Allers, ladies and gentlemen is going to join us now live from peach time out on Fort Myers beach. Dan is the the other half of the, Dan and. Megan connection, Dan. How are you? I'm good at how are you doing great doing great? We appreciate you coming down bringing the dog and bringing the whole two three of that. Now, all three tables full of people down here the family. They came here to see Rudy who he can. Yeah. Route to the dog the big black lab in. How are things going? Good good. We're busy. We got quite I just. Yeah. You're perfect right there. Go ahead. All right. Good. So yeah, you're getting your first last week, and we tried to have you guys on. But you're getting yeah, we had to do a little reconnaissance mission if you will down in marathon for the wedding find places for things that people do. And so we were down there doing that. We had a good time. We had some good places we picked out so enjoys it. Oh, you didn't know at the time where you were going to get married. No, no. We knew where you know, like after the reception, and then because it's going to be kind of a weekend event, we want her places and things to do for people on Saturday. So. We found a couple of spots couple of things to do. Now. Megan said, you've already written your vows out, and that you'd be totally willing to share them on the air with us now. So what are your house going to be to Megan? Well, I would say that if you want me to recite them you may not be on the air. I don't think I understand, you know. No, we haven't. I I do have some things written down. But I think I should say oh you do. Look you look at you gotta be prepared. Right. So marathon. Yeah. And big wedding got very small very small. We're trying to keep it as small as possible. I've never been one for real big wedding. So I've never been married married been married once it's Megan not Mary. Well, megan. We're getting married Megan's going to be part of it. I guess sure. Sure. So you've had a chance to breed now after the election give us an idea like. What it was like going through an election for the first time from the time you announce, and then you, you know, you got your campaign going and what what was the experience like. It was it was exciting. Actually for me. It was a lot of learning. Obviously a lot of hard work. A lot of talking to people all stuff that I really really enjoyed. I learned a lot of things that I thought maybe I knew, but I I realized very quickly that I didn't know I had a lot of support from a lot of people before you say that when you say, you learn things that you didn't know did you mean about the politics of the city or about an election. Both. Okay. Both actually I had never taken the time to open the comprehend or anything like that. So I don't into that. There's a lot of other things that that I learned a lot of history I'm really into history. So there's a lot of history that I learned from going to events and talking to to to pass council members. Also, rain wrecks in Dennis. They all were very helpful. And giving me any formation that that that I that I asked for so that that was really really a fun experience for me. And again, like I said, I had so many people I can't think the people enough that that supported me volunteered. I mean did a lot of legwork because you can't do it all on your own. Were you surprised with the outcome? Like, do you think you got more votes than you expect it based on the fact that it was certainly tough you run against three veterans in you had never run before not that you were an unknown name in politics. A first time runner is. Tough to beat three three turned out to be three in comets. Even though they weren't technically income. It's they had been there. They knew how to do that. Yeah. I honestly not going through it. I didn't know what to expect. I knew that. It was going to take a lot of hard work. I knew that was going to take a lot of me getting out to meet the people to to ask a lot of questions to hear all the employees. I knew that I was have to work harder. She'd say harder because everybody worked hard. But I knew that I was going to have to do a little bit more to to get out there who I was in. And I think I did everything that I could obviously I didn't win. So the always think is there more I could have done. I'm always reevaluating what I could have been different or how it could work even harder or so, you know, there's that part of it that that you you continue to think about what do you think the outcome of the election? What kind of signal did that send residents sent to the to the government? Well, I think it clearly sent a message that that people are ready for a change. I I don't think they were a hundred percent maybe ready for the new guy quite yet. But I've gotten a lot of great great feedback from people that have have said, a very very very nice things about me have encouraged me to keep going. You know, obviously, if people don't have anything nice to say, they usually don't come in. Right. They'll say behind your back. But I haven't really heard any of that. No, not at all. I was I was really humbled by the the amount of oats into to get that close. Just now last question on that. We surprised that you came in above Dennis.

"And so the really for autism event is really a fantastic opportunity one. I think for us to get our families down to the beach that day we're going to face painting a bunch of activities at nervous Nellie as we actually the kids fishing tournament going on that happening. Mid about eleven thirty in the morning on the back deck and nervous now is which is fantastic fishing tournament. Basically got his seven thirty folks get the lines in the water out out there. We had about a fifteen boats last year that were some beautiful fish that were brought in which was dynamite and an arcade. Honestly loved it. The guys brought in by gets the fish check it out it was dynamite. And then they wrap up to thirty lines out of the water and clock. We get everybody back in we've silent auction. That'd be going on at three thirty. I'm so that'll be cool. So and God bless us. We just had so many local businesses have donated a ton of. That assign an auction, which has just been unbelievable. What is some of the items that people might be able to bid on their? Yes, we're lucky through the Corey country club gave us a four round of golf for four folks out. We get a Santa Barbara couple couple nights stay down there. Couple mountain bikes are donated two sets of golf clubs all kinds of stuff. From the Red Sox gave us a baseball from the Red Sox four spring training tickets for next season bunch of bobbleheads. So whole budget is cool stuff that we've gotten whether it's food or sports or activity, ending you like they've got a whole bunch of baskets and stuff lined up. That'll be there and be available, and there's gonna be a fifty fifty raffles travel. That's always huge, folks. Love that stuff. I know last year, I think you get up to a couple thousand dollars. So folks are excited about that. And that's April twenty seven twenty seven eleven to six. And so now tell us a little bit about the agency about family initiative. How it got started? When and some of the things that you guys have going on out there. It's in the Kate. Okay. One of those things I think a number of years ago Ajili injury. And I both social workers graduated from MSG. See you nice with our master's in social work. We spent a lot of time working to child welfare working with kids placed in foster care or vailable option. And quite honestly Kimmo Megan to see maybe six seven years ago was more and more kids every year placed in foster care, either diagnosed or undiagnosed an autism spectrum and just you know her, and I think kind of watching that seeing that increase in prevalence, easy, quite frankly, I think we we did a bunch focus groups with the families and the community, and I think pretty clearly they said us, they saw a gap in services. They were really the inspiration us start the nonprofit, and we started really small we had worn social skills playgroup that we offered in Sarah, Owen, the amazing to the southwest Florida community foundation gave us a grant for the social skills group, which was dynamite. And gosh, we launched. That and it was phony because we started maybe like one child come on. We to was kind of hard to do it can the moms and as it came to like so this seven behavior analysts and is on. Great. The greatest thing ever right before hours and low and behold like a year later thirty kids every Saturday, so it's dynamite. So we sorta use it as I think being social workers kind of taken that approach whenever mom and dad won't is quotas, mama. I wanna come out, and they wanna hang out for the three hours over there with the kids in the gym. That's great. If they want to drop off. That's great..

How are you going to get nice close there? And folks, Kenny is he lives on the beach. Yes. I do you're considered homeless. Yes. I am. And you've been here since nineteen Ninety-one. So let's start with that tell us how long how long we know you've been here since nineteen Ninety-one, but how you came down here why you're here. And you know, where you're staying. In nineteen ninety. I came down on spring break with a friend of mine who's dad lives down. Here is a physical therapist in. Afterwards. The next year ninety one after I graduated from college I decided to move back down here in primarily because of spring break. Okay. And I've not been homeless except for the past year and a half because of the greedy Lynn, developers down here that are tearing down everything. So before we talk about that, can you how so where are you staying we're and your your girlfriend is here to? Yes, she is her name is Lynn Lynn kidding. Okay. So easy to remember people know you down here here while so where do you stay? We're staying different we cal- chop from places. And then other times we have a couple little Heidi spots. I guess so to speak you how how are you staying warm at night. Not really, okay. So talk about the folks at chapel by the sea and God stable help. Absolutely fabulous situation that. These people want to get rid of all do will make things worse. What do you mean why if they take what little bit away from the people that that are down here? They're still gonna come down here, regardless. So, but they're very important to us as a community now. You get food over there. You get shower if you need it. Yeah. And just five days a week. Yeah. So one of the other things that is going on is that obviously Dr Hamad this horrifying got murdered by somebody that was homeless. And and now you feel like everybody is being targeted. Yes. We are. And how is that? How how? Just because they see us. We cannot set at bus stops anymore in. I like setting the bus stops just to do the the license plate game. Have you ever done that? I don't think so. Well, just looking at everybody from different states as the cars are going by keep track of the different states. That's the number one St. the only one that I have not met yet is Hawaii. Okay. And there's cut. Well, there's a couple of Canadian ones Yukon. Do you con- stay in north northwest? Territories state, but there's the only ones that I have not seen. Okay. But you know, all we're doing is setting. There were not causing any problems. We are not panhandlers. And but we're all grouped together would happen with Dr Hummer dang. Well, can you understand how the rest feel that? They like. Like, you know, their back door and somebody's sleeping on their. Yes. I understand that. I agree. So what do you think is the happy medium or some kind of solution to there isn't going to be? There will never be one. I don't believe. Beyond with you. I don't believe there will ever be one. Why do you say that? Because. They get there. They're trying to get this lady. I don't wanna say her name. Thank you. But you know, you've read it in the paper. No, I'm talking about. In you don't think they're trying to round up all the homeless.
