"The source and pay more attention to forest management practices that my mind goes without saying we have left all of this downed timber especially the pine beetles and other things just lanier. It's it's unbelievable. I ve gone into the mountains. Go there every minute. I i love the mountains. When i look around and see all these great trees and then after a while the great trees of fallen down there just laying there. It's a tinderbox. If you get a fire going it as we have learned is very very difficult and in some cases impossible to control it So yeah you've got that issue as well so then. Those trees create burn scar. And it's all the fault over the beatles. Okay well why to be. The beatles were brought about because of the drought because the trees didn't have enough moisture and the beatles got it. I see it's a cycle but the point is this no matter what caused it or what brought it to be is a reality. What about are you familiar with the Mulching project that crews have undertaken in long dry area of the burn scar. That's nearly two hundred and nine thousand acres with three hundred twenty-five mile perimeter. It's all well and good but my understanding is that if we get You know another arc light rainfall. We another dump. All of those efforts could wash all that away. Well the point is good. Mulching is basically trying to put something on there to hold the hold the grid well replaced in a way soil with much and the only way that's going to work because if you also throw in some seed and try and see better on the other hand the soil that's below is not very conducive to grow and stuff. Get rid of that of that takes time. It's not like this area's achievement. How good take years to regenerate in enough growth there to handle some moisture but even there was no burn scar. Where was absolutely no problem. In terms of the soil it was all native. It was a big forest when we had that dump in the big thompson. Canyon nineteen seventy six killed a hundred and forty people that i reminded you a little bit ago. There that there was no birds started that that was know exacerbating whatsoever for matt in. We still had a major catastrophe and then in loveland y- my involvement. There was to pull the fairgrounds out of that area right on the river and put it where it is up on the hill. Now this is experience as a county commissioner. that's one of the decisions we make But still when the river comes through. Loveland it it. They had taken that whole area where we abandoned as unworthy old survey they built beautiful ball diamonds. They built some fabulous pavilions. I photograph though for the people who built them. They're beautiful but then we had another flood came along there. What was that lady. Whatever three or whenever took it out destroyed what they beautiful park that the city of love built there and that had nothing to do with burn scars mulching but his head to do with another major precipitation event up the hill..

"This is mornings with kale and northern colorado's voice thirteen ten. Kfi am well. You know it's interesting not the first person to make this point. Typically of where. We're praying for rain but not in those burn scar areas as we saw that horrendous flooding in which at least two lost their lives This in the putin canyon to others from the same family. Incidentally still missing. It's just tragic. It's heartbreaking but bouncing off that piece this morning That i worked through before we got you all caught up on everything you need to know at the top of the hour. This was a piece out of the fort collins. Colorado and by miles bloom hard to took it upon himself to talk to national weather service. Voeller meteorologist paul slatter Taking a look at this flood zone and saying essentially when he was asked if flooding would occur again. He said it's not an issue with but absolutely when going on to save with the conditions. The way they are up there in the camera and peak fire burn. Scar doesn't take much rain to bring things down if it falls in the wrong spot. Seven ten thirteen ten. Kfi a thirteen ten kfi k. A. dot com northern colorado's voice mornings with gail from the auto collision specialists studios joined up by a voice. You know well my friend. My colleague our institutional wisdom when it comes to all things northern colorado particularly for collins. john. Clark hey john. Thanks for checking in this morning. Because i do want to tap in to your institutional wisdom because This is a major concern not only in the present but indeed in the future. Sure absolutely just take a look at history Those of us who around here in one thousand nine hundred ninety six when we have to thompson fled no but immense amounts of rain can follow those those things I think that was along. The order of ten inches of rain and a couple of hours came down and literally scoured the big thompson canyon. A lots of a hundred and forty lives just a matter of minutes Yeah but okay. So when you compare the big thompson drainage to the putin drainage you're talking about An element of almost five to six times. More water is in the putin. Putin has a much bigger drainage area. It's a much bigger river than the thompson. So if you had one of those maximum rainy then it's and i'm not sure we even know what that is because we live in a desert until it's enough and then all of a sudden we get hit with these massive massive thunderstorms Save but just say you have that amount of rain that caused the big thompson. Floods nineteen seventy six up in the putin drainage instead just just five six miles to the north..

"On Friday, homes and businesses and Big Thompson Canyon were evacuated due to the Cameron Peak fire the flames that consumed over 167,000 acres and it's a 56% containment thie Cameron Peak fires the largest wildfire in Colorado history. Federal Communications Commission chairman Ajit Pai tweeted Thursday he'll be clarifying ambiguities in section 2 30 The Communications Act as petition by the U. S Department of Commerce prices. Social media companies have a First Amendment right to free speech, but they do not have a First Amendment right to a special immunity denied to other media outlets such as newspapers of broadcasters. To West Michigan. Doctors call on President Trump to cancel today's campaign rally in Muskegon, emergency physician Rob Davidson and family physician Susan favorite claimed the president spreads code with 19 misinformation, and that place is listeners in danger. That's the latest Taylor I'm very helps your listening to masters and business on Bloomberg Radio. My special guest this week is Lisa Cooke. She is a former researcher on the Council of Economic Advisers under President Obama. She is also a professor of economics. And international relations at Michigan State University. Let's talk a little bit about what's going on today with the recession. What is this doing to income and wealth? Inequality? I'm not sure it could do more. I'm not sure this pandemic could do more. It is really driving a serious wedge between Those who have income and wealth and those who doubt Whether we're talking about those two cold stocks and those who don't and, uh, just under 50% of Americans do not hope any stuff. They're not seeing the game. The the stock market has largely recovered from the beginning of the pandemic. No, We didn't see this in the great recession, too. So that's not so unusual that that stocks would cover before employment does, but Income inequality is taking a beating. How is that Because Let's say if we add a racial dimension to it, African Americans are subject to occupational segregation, so they're in a lot of these. Want facing, uh, occupation to which they would be disproportionate way exposed to cope with 19. So that's one way in which they're deciding between A job and eating or a job and rent Ah, job in the health. So so this is one of the ways in which income inequality has come to four for wealth inequality. It's even more stark. So it was mentioning. Certainly, stock market is recovering not as many people among African Americans Are in the stock market. Certainly you wealth is orders of magnitude lower for African American health so compared to Whitehall folks, But there's one thing that I followed. That really troubles May And that is small businesses. There are 50 white entrepreneurs for every black entrepreneur, And as we know this is a tried and true path to the middle class and to wealth accumulation in America. And what we know about park business is, is that a disproportionate number? Are reporting closing permanently. As a result of the recession, the pandemic and and recession and they didn't receive tpp funds were not recording. FDA is not recording the applicants. And we don't have good demographic data. But from the surveys that have been done, we know that when they replied when they applied, they were rejected. You know, this is due to the big banks being relied upon to Do about these monks, but also for the amount they were questioning. They got disproportionately less. So what I worry about is this Fisher growing significantly? Not just now. But in the future, because certainly income now lays the groundwork for wealth in the future. So given the sort of work from home pandemic economy that we're living in, some people have been calling this a quote she session. Unquote because so much of it is falling disproportionately on on the shoulders of women. How accurate is that phrases that's overstating it, Or is there really a deep gender? Fisher as well as ah, Racial Fisher. Absolutely. There's a tender Fisher. That is that is also there with the racial Fisher and we could see that an American time you survey and the senses What we know about women is that Regardless of occupation, regardless of income. They been a dis support, minute amount of time on care of other individual in the household. That might be Children. That might be the elderly, but they spend more time taking care of those people, and that happened before that was happening before the pandemic. Yeah, and women are the ones who are having to drop out of the workforce. While these students are stuck at home, small Children, especially our second home, trying to do their homework, or trying to make sure that they have their their snacks on time and get through their schoolwork. So this is it, she says, and women are back at their participation rates. From 1987. That is shocking. And Porto happen in such a short period of time is absolutely shocking, and this is gonna have lasting Cars leave lasting lasting scars on the labor market, because one thing we know is that when women are out of the labor force, the slow down with respect to pay with respect to promotion And I am just hoping that we will get some kind of support for child care to make sure that that some of these women can recover and recover more quickly. Quite interesting. So the cares act was passed at the end of the first quarter. It was about $3 Trillion. If you would've asked me over the summer, will we see a follow up another couple of trillion dollars? I would've given you 10 to 1 odds that absolutely the politicians in election. Of course they're going to pass a second stimulus. But here we are, middle of October. No such stimulus passed yet. Did we go far enough with the first cares, Act. And are you at all surprised that there hasn't been a follow up? What do you think's gonna happen and how much stimulus is needed? Given the way the economy is starting to plateau and attenuate from from that big bounce back we saw over the summer. Sarah, you and I were in the same position. That's exactly what I thought, too. On what I knew was that Wait..

"KFI K A. Dark billowing smoke blanketing much of northern Colorado as ash rained down yesterday after winds drove explosive growth of that cameron peak fire. Now, the largest wildfire in Colorado history growing more than twenty thousand acres. Since Tuesday, it is now listed at one hundred, Fifty, eight, thousand, three, hundred acres with fifty six percent containment. Now, this is according to a facebook update last night working for peace by miles blunt hearts Kelly lyle out of the Fort Collins Colorado in this morning, it was shocking wasn't it? I was actually driving. To and fro up to Fort Collins and returning. Around ten thirty or so, and I like so many others pulled off the road got out of our cars. Of course, we were safely up the road I mean we're not stopping traffic or anything like that but it was like we were shellshocked. Did you feel that way yesterday as it was just that? Fix billowing. Cameron fire and it was that dark smoke which meant, yes, structures were impacted. Now we don't know how many structures at this point, but we'll get into what we do know and I had to shake my head because I came across well here. Let me pull this up where I came across this headline. From a Denver, news outlet K. Cameron peak fire has flared up. But where's the smoke? Hey y'all might want to look past the confines of Denver because it was visible from Denver. I mean particularly Greeley Loveland Fort Collins much of Larimer county talked to so many people yesterday as we just stood there in shock watching this monster of ablaze. Fire made another huge run east on Wednesday again. Let's set at one hundred, Fifty, eight, thousand three hundred acres making it the largest wildfire in Colorado history. It's now surpassed another twenty thousand fire. That's the Pine Gulch fire for the largest in the state's history Pine Gulch fire near Grand Junction reached one, hundred, thirty, nine, thousand, seven acres before it was fully contained. In late September now Larimer County Justin Sheriff Justin Smith. Said there were indeed structures lost on Wednesday, but it could take some time before a full assessment is made but there were wins reaching well into the seventy mile per hour range overnight Tuesday into Wednesday. Causing a big run on that fire and nine new evacuation orders within twenty four hours. But back to the structures that were lost these aren't the ones that we can get to quickly said Sheriff Smith because they're in a very active fire. Looking days ahead before we're going to be able to get folks back in there now while lower temperatures are expected in the coming days, well, it's still expected to be very active fire conditions. Things will calm down a little, but we're expecting almost if not as much activity Thursday into Friday, we're not through this wave of activity yet this according to incident commander. Damn Dallas expect a couple more days of very hard days while it was a destructive day saw smoke pouring over the front range where's the smoke ASA Denver News outlet the Smith one that well, it could have been so much worse adding it was a bad day but I. Will leave you with this. It could have been very easily it could have very easily been. He reiterated that point could have been a lot worse. We had no reported injuries no deaths a lot fewer structures were impacted than we truly anticipated based on what we saw. Now, the fire has pushed clothes closer to Fort Collins much closer as well to the west side of horse tooth, reservoir but Sheriff Smith says, there's little concern about it causing any evacuations in Fort Collins. Loveland were estes park the heavy timbers that are fueling the fire. Well, they're just not they're they're not available the near to the cities that this fire actually approaches. So now, into its second month of burning the mountains west of Fort Collins fire flared as so many of us witnessed yesterday threatening scores, mountain. Homes, and sending that massive column of smoke above the northern front range. By four twenty. Yesterday afternoon, the fire had crossed a stove prairie road. This is Larimer County Road Twenty seven near Buckhorn Canyon Road County Road Forty Four H.. Officials weren't able at that point to say how far across stowe prairie road the fire had moved. An update on twitter. At Five thirty said, firefighters had been able to slow the spread of the. Fire. East of County Road Twenty seven. That's stowe. Prairie road. Saying that County Road Twenty seven was holding at that point in time. Fire actually shot east of the Colorado State University Mountain campus into that mountainous area northwest of Glenhaven by noon firefighters reported the fire was well established atop the eleven thousand foot signal mountain by two thirty yesterday afternoon. Larimer County Sheriff's Office. Had made its fifth mandatory evacuation order in twenty four hours ordering folks out of horse. Tooth Mountain Park.
