"Bill Main 13 minutes after eight. Moving into a brand new morning. Looking at 87 later on today, Right now we start at 67 degrees 20 degrees to go and plenty of sunshine anticipated. Pleased to welcome to our program this morning as a neighbor, Arthur Levine is a former president of Teachers College, Columbia University and co author of a book entitled The Great Upheaval, The Past, present and Uncertain Future of Higher Education. Thank you so much for joining us, Arthur Appreciate you being with us this morning. Hope you're well today. It's my pleasure. Thanks for having me. Well, let's talk about this great upheaval. Um, What do you mean by the great upheaval when we talk about higher education? It's what's happening in all of our live the country changing dramatically changing demographically who the population is exchange the economically we're moving, prominent dust real society to a knowledge economy. And it's changing in terms of technology. Just all the things we feel around us. Don't you see this as a similarity to what happens with the industrial revolution as we change Because technology is what's really driving all of this, isn't it? You're exactly right. The country's only gone through this transformation once before and history, and that was the industrial revolution. During that period, every social institution was transformed, including higher education. What are we doing right in higher education. And what are we doing wrong? What we're doing Higher education is very floated. Change. I'm always seen essentially was during the pen damaged. What happened, kid that wasn't departures, beating up all kinds of things that would have happened anyway, like the use of online learning who were doing writing higher education. Into a greased a large proportion of population What we're doing right now we're offering most students of quality education. What could be done better, But it's also the major research of the world, which we really need in today's economy. What we what could be done better. Expensive. And there are too many groups. That are not getting into college need to get into college is just been excluded. And that's not a good thing. And finally higher education very floated change in the world That's changing. Profound. But yeah, technology has caused us to by leaps and bounds. You're right. I agree with you. The pandemic accelerated a lot of things that would have happened anyway. Uh, and to a certain degree, they pushed us in that direction quickly, But we also seem to respond fairly well, and some of the technological issues are holes in that communication has started to be plugged up pretty quickly, which is which is good as well. Our guest is Arthur Levine. And he's talking about the great upheaval. The past president uncertain future of higher education. Let me throw this at you, though. A lot of things that have been said about higher education, including technical college, and a lot of folks are saying we should be moving away so much from traditional college degrees and getting more folks in the trades and more folks into the technical aspect. What do you see in that regard as we move into the next couple of decades. Oh, I think there's going to be ordinary options for students far wider than we have now, so that vocational and technical or really important things to have Other countries like Germany certainly has it in addition to traditional higher education But the big surprises. We think all kinds of new and non traditional providers of her education..

"That's 808 85 33 108 108 85 33 100. It's where North Georgia starts the day. It's wdun mornings on Main Street with Bill Main. We continue with mornings on Main Street. Want to say good morning to Dr Bo Ackerman advanced. I centered. Morning, Dr Bo, How you doing? Morning, Bill. I'm doing great, fantastic, although not everybody is doing so well, and I'm not talking about the pandemic. I'm talking about a situation that we all seem to experience from time to time. And that is the dry, itchy eye. And sometimes during, you know, allergy season we get that. But some folks just get it out of the clear blue for apparently no reason. What are some of the causes of this? What's what can you do to help us out? Sure. Well, you're right. And eventually, you know, some some degree or form of I irritation and underlying mostly. What we're going to generically called dry syndrome is kind of an inevitability. It's one of those death and taxes and you're going to have some dry problems whether you know it or not, eventually, so probably eight or nine out of 10 times when people think they have allergies in their eyes. Because they itch of the burn of their irritated It's more commonly not allergy, and certainly they may have allergies. But the ocular component of those symptoms are much more commonly caused by just lack of good lubrication. What we call dry Eye syndrome. There's two kinds of tears in your eyes. There's plenty of and and most of us keep the reflex. You get dirt your eye in your eye water as you ride down the lake like I know you do, Bill. You're Yeah, you're going too fast. And, uh, your eyes start streaming water because the air is having a hairdryer effect. In the surface. The surface gets dry. And then here come the crying tears. Those are reflex tears. So we have plenty of those throughout our lifetime. But they're not. They're helpful at flushing out dirt out of your eye or something. But when your eyes watering much to kind of the common sense, you might make you believe your eyes tearing because it's angry, and it's angry because the surface is irritated whether you feel that irritation or not. Your eye nose. It's not happy and so watery. Teary eyes can be allergy, but much more often than not. That's not enough of the good kind of moisture, which is a totally different formula. Totally different components contained in the normal what we call tear film the good the good stuff, as opposed to the reflex crying tears. Ironically, when your eyes tear That you know, we think about somebody gets emotional and they cry real hard. What do their eyes look like? Oh, yeah, I'll read all red and mad and right, because those reflex are emotional, crying to the same thing. They defecate. They wash away even more of the good oils and lubricants that are I want needs to feel good to not be read mad to stay in focus and be happy. So dry Eye syndrome takes on a big laundry list of symptoms that varies a lot from one individual to the next. That oftentimes bothers one. I'm more than another. Uh, yeah, so not uncommon for people say this one. I really bothers me and I said Well as other I do that. Yes, some, but this one's more. So that that's very common as well. So you know, there are there is not. We're still searching for magic bullet for dry eye therapy. It doesn't exist, but there are things that we could do to minimize it to make it easier to live with. By far and away the mainstay of treatment. Kind of like putting lotion on chronically dry skin of the lotion for the Ike takes on. We call those things artificial tears there, lubricants that aren't just simple saline or tap water. These are formulas that have all kinds of different ingredients in them that are built to try to mimic our natural good moisture to coat the eye with a good coding of moisture and lubrication to try to minimize those dry symptoms. Try to stay in better focus and have happier, more comfortable eyes so artificial tears of the mainstay of treatment. These are just over the counter products. There are several. There's a little procedure we do where we close the little drain in the bottom of the lid. That's not where the tears come from. But there's a little hole in the bottom, lower and upper corner of our eyelid that's like the drain the hole in the bottom of our sink to take the water out of the sink that drain in our eyelid takes the moisture fry, which is good when we're a child, because we have a lot of lubrication. But as we make less of that, the drains still work and and now it's hurting you. So we'll close that little drain hole. We got lit a micro. It kind of freaks people out here the story, but it's It's painless and harmless and reversible. You know, you take them out as easy as you can put them in literally in two or three seconds in the office. I put this little almost invisible rubber stopper just like putting a stop in the bottom the bathtub to run a bath, so that's kind of our next line of defense. And then the third thing, if that if all those things aren't adequate, there are a couple prescription drugs that come in the form of eyedrops that can be helpful. There. Don't work for everybody. They're not magical, but but there are two now. We've we've had one for Almost 25 30 years, But we finally have a second choice. So we've got to therapeutic drops that some Some folks will find quite helpful as well. So we got we do have several different Weapons. Several different arms of therapy. Um, for the old dry I ici Bernie Red. Why can't I read at the end of the day? You know, I'd like I love to read a book at the end of the day. But by the end of the day, I'm blurry and amount of focus..

"Main Street with Bill Main 30 minutes after seven working in his brand New Morning 84 later right now, were it 58 degrees, the sunshine this little breeze out there so not bad at all. Coming your way next hour Gonna be checking in with none other than Ben Garland? Yeah, he's play with the Falcons. And then, of course last season with center starting center for the San Francisco 40 Niners. He's gonna be in town for a special event coming up tomorrow that you could be part of him will tell you about that in our eight o'clock hour. In the meantime, I gotta check in with Andrew Greul. Now, you might know that name. Is chef and also you've seen him on the food network. He's the food network's food truck face off. Remember that show he's the he was a judge on that program, but he's also founder and CEO and executive chef of Slap Fish. To seafood restaurant based out of Huntington Beach, California starters food truck and chef Cruel is with us this morning to talk a little bit about a charity that he has started. It is behind, and this is called the 86 restaurants struggling and chef girl. Thanks for being with us this morning to tell us a little about the 86 restaurant struggle. What is this? We started 86 restaurants struggled in December when they shut down outdoor dining in California again. And it came on the heels of being open and close and open and closed. And then they had misappropriated up so much money and unemployment benefits that when they shut down, outdoor dining and all these people lost their jobs. There was, you know nothing there to help anybody. Especially going into the holidays, eh? So we kind of started the funds to try and help out a few families pay rent. Utilities put Christmas gifts under the kid under the tree for the kids. Kind of morphed into a much bigger program. Um, and you know, they just kind of took it on and try to raise as much as we could to help out as many people how many people you've been able to help so far. Um gosh, we've raised over $400,000 was probably helped about 1,000,000 families being in the restaurant. Hospitality business is not the easiest business a lot of folks that are in it, especially if they're Like you if they're an entrepreneur, and they find themselves at a high level, you're there because you're passionate about it. That's what got you there. You love food. You love hospitality, and it's a hard way to make a living sometimes. Because we don't think about it. I think we take it for granted that they're out there. Doing these things for us is patrons. But we don't realize what it takes and what the margins really are. Yeah, exactly. And one thing throughout this pandemic that's been pretty fascinating to watch is the way in which there's been this new narrative written about small business owners and restaurant owners, and all we think about is, you know profits over people. Yes, This is not a profit business. I was joke. Is it the restaurant histories? Nonprofit on duh. You know we're you know, we're deep in the community were all about our team and, you know, you know, building Only a good product. It's not about the profits that of all. You've really steep yourself into it. Of course, your CEO and executive chef, it slapped fish out of Huntington Beach there in California. You've been on food network's food truck face off, which I think that's that's kind of neat. We have a food truck Friday event here once a month by the lakeside, and it's this last one was the best attendant I've ever seen. There were tons of people out there. But I don't think people realize the food truck folks, I think have an even harder time 100% and you know, I started slapping as a food truck back in 2011. So it's certainly something that's pretty close to me and threw OSS raising all this money for struggling and out of work, restaurant workers and certain small business owners. One of the Groups that we end up helping a lot were the food truck owners because of the fact their owner operators typically running to show themselves, you know, opening the truck, closing the truck doing everything there. The owner there the employees there everything and they were certainly hurt significantly throughout this pandemic, And this is the backbone of these. These are the people who start new concepts to the people who put everything out on the wine. In order to create these and jobs that you know, eventually build into something there. What would you tell young people who are interested in getting into it? Who? Maybe now going? I don't know. I mean, it looks like those folks are struggling. It's not pandemic proof, so to speak. What would you say to your young person who's interested in getting into into this line of work? We'll tell them that now's a great time to get in. You know, there's tons opportunities on the on the job side of this so many places you could really have your pick of the litter when it comes to where you want to work. So as a team member, you know you're at an advantage right now. But even if you're looking at this from an entrepreneurial perspective, you know the fact of the matter is, you know, unfortunately, But the truth is a lot of second generation space is available right now. So it's actually a Low barriers of entry to get in right now, you're just gonna have to, you know, kind of weather the storm. I think the restaurant industry's got a long road ahead when it comes to changing the consumer mindset in the psychology that restaurants are safe places to be. What do you think is in changing that? What is it gonna take to change that? I think it's going to take a lot of local communities to kind of rally around Main Street. Think that you know, obviously we all need to just understand and recognize that restaurants are inherently trained to be safe and sanitary. Businesses operations. I mean, we were really the beginning this pandemic we should have been used, in my opinion to model the behavior a little bit better, as opposed to been having been vilified as kind of the epicenters of spread, which ended up not being the case. None of the data proved that time and time again. You guys were inspected all the time. Yeah, were inspected all the time. Every single employee has to have a food handler's card loan about cross contamination. Learn all the steps in the process is in the procedures to keep the restaurant's clean and safe, not just for the customers for the team members as well. I mean, you know, it's in Ordina and folks want to find out how they can help out with this. How did they get in touch with you and and find out more about the 86 restaurant struggle? Well, they can go to the number 86 struggled dot com. That's the number each six struggle about Com. Um, you can learn more about our fund if you want to learn more about what I'm doing, you know?

Right now. The long projection looks like it will because we've got a big great event going on next week. It's a great tradition with the boys and girls clubs and we're checking in with Abhay Singh standing by because He is the man who's gonna help wrangle those ducks for the rubber duck derby.

And you know, some of those kids felt like you know, they're on their own and all alone and that's not a good way to be for anybody. But they missed all the friends there at the club. Yeah, we really we did. Just like the schools. We worked on line as much as we could Torus that learning gap ah, that their kids were facing. I mean, we saw kids that had a lot more mental health issues and Social emotional challenges during that time. But the community rallied.

"Main Street with Bill Main on AM by 50 and FM, one of 2.9 Wdun 30 minutes after eight o'clock moving into a brand new day right now, at 40 degrees shooting for 52, we're gonna stop till we get there, Are we? Yeah, let's do it. Sunshine little bit later on today through this fire and cloud cover Today. Not just any day being a Friday, of course way check in twice a month with my good friend Dr Brent sharply standing by with us from Georgia urology, but also not your normal week. We've been observing the national cancer awareness going on. And you guys deal with that all the time, Dr Sharp and you've got some interesting news you shared with us over the course of past couple of years of development. And as far as diagnosing and of course in treatment as well. Absolutely. Good morning. I hope you're doing well. Yeah, it may be one of those mornings that we're going to try to shove. What was it? We said before £10 of potatoes in a £5 bag. Um, Cancer is not a small topic but again, you know it is. I think today it turns out to be or yesterday. I believe it was well. Cancer day. So we're just being aware this week of what has affected every one of us. There's not a single person listening or any of us who have not been touched by this medical condition. And I think this arming yourself with information, but you're not having fear. There's no reason to live in fear. It doesn't help in any aspect. So again in urology. We deal with several cancers. Kidney cancer, prostate cancer, testicular cancer, bladder cancer. These are some of ours that we deal with it, and there's excellent treatment options. But the key to a lot of these is just being aware of your body and Seeking medical attention. You know, we've said before. Guys aren't always really good about seeking attention something medical care. And and I think this is an example of just to, you know again reiterate that Hey, our health is important. And we should should look out for and we see those signs and symptoms and we should seek attention. Well, we talk about signs and symptoms and seeking attention. You know, when we do go to the doctor, they're onto screenings that we go through. I know what I have my regular physical of blood test. They seem take a gallon and a half every time I go in But that charge him charging like a charge for the for gasoline or something. But what are you able to do in screening it? Is it one of those things where you don't know you got it until you actually have a tumor of some sort of their way to screen for propensity. I don't think we're at a point where we can screen for your propensity in the next few years or hey, you're going to develop now we're getting Closer with some genetic testing with some awareness of family history, you know, in urology, and we have P ECE. That's a prostate specific antigen that we all check for prostate cancer. Um, you know, blood in the urine is a sign of bladder cancer. Paying your back. That just doesn't go away can be can be a sign of the kidneys, Not just in general cancer. You know, we're gonna see those changes. We don't feel as well. We may have weight loss. We might have a cough that just doesn't go away or respond to your typical therapy. So ah, lot of times. That's what we need to focus on that, saying that we have that we might just chalk up that just does not get better. And it's typical fashion. That's probably the number one thing that says Hey, maybe we ought to just to go see Somebody. And I think us is guys that we got in our car and crank and heard a noise that we'd never heard before. And then tomorrow we heard it The next day we heard it. We have that thing in the shop so fast it make the mechanics head spin. Yeah, you're right. But we don't do that with their own bodies and again a great awareness day in a week to be focused on that. So you mentioned that no need to live in fear. And I agree with you because there's so many breakthroughs that are being being made. And one of those When you talk about cancer, prostate cancer is you've told us before slow growing able to cash that early in the prognosis is usually good. Absolutely. The prostate cancer is very slow growing cancer. Um you know what we talked about knowing your family history. So again, those men who have prostate cancer in their family, especially those that have Um, progressed such what we call metastatic. It's left the prostate. Those people that are in that same germ line or family tree, you know, need to be looked at in a different way. We know that let's say breast cancer. And put a man's family tree at increased risk. So I also feel like things like pancreatic cancer and prostate cancer. They're linked all some degree. So knowing your family history is kind of important and For those people that have a significant family members with cancer that you run the song, same lines now, for example, let's say brain cancer is not link to prostate cancer, but we have mentioned again. Breast cancer. Colon cancer can be Knowing those histories and potentially may be seeking, like genetic counseling. You know if you're a cancer patient, a cancer survivor to help your offspring The other thing is we've mentioned before something called special care. So special care is this company.

"Place where everyone's a neighbor. It's mornings on Main Street with Bill Main on AM by 50 and FM, one of 2.9 Wdun, moving into a brand new day and glad to have you along with us as we do just that. Rainy 49 now gonna clear up a bit by this afternoon, and we'll see temperatures touch about 58 degrees at that points because I mentioned coming at the top of the hour. Today is not just your average Wednesday. Today is January 27th and as such today is Holocaust Remembrance Day. I wanted to talk about what's going on with a very special project, which, as I look at this, and I was talking to a guest off here, this is mind blowing how large this is. We're checking with a Deborah dash more. She is a Jewish scholar, and she's working with opposing library of Jewish culture and civilization. And Debra, This is an amazing project because you go from biblical times all the way today with the history of the Jewish people and That is a massive undertaking. How long have you been working on this? Okay, well, it is a massive undertaking, and I've been working on it for well over a decade, The project actually started back in 2000 and five Um, So what's incredible about it is it's a translation project. You know, it brings everything to you in English. Um, on these air, all original sources, um so you get to read the words of Diverse. Um, Jewish thinkers, writers, poets. Um, uh on, take a look at wonderful visual material. Um, painting photographs, Um, images of sculptures, architectures stuff like that really great stuff. I'm glad you translated, cause my Hebrew is not very good. To be honest with you. Matter of fact, it doesn't exist. So that makes a lot easier for something. Let me just tell you it's not just Hebrew. There's more In a dozen languages, actually close to the two dozen life Wow. Translated from Yes, yes, because Jews wrote in all kinds of languages. Um, you know, tons of European languages. Arabic language is Aramaic. I mean, you name it. Yeah. So let's talk a little bit about like I would see if I can juxtaposition Or maybe you can help me. With this when we talk about when we talk about the Jewish people, one of the things of course, in our time that we think of is the Holocaust. Today's Holocaust Remembrance Day. But I'm kind of curious as far as political fought as far as just poetry, right exist in general. Do you see a shift in mindset? Pre World War two. The post World War. Two. When it comes tol it's being written by Jewish scholars. Yes, we have material you know, from the 19th as well as the immediate years, um, prior to World War two, And there's an enormous sense of optimism. Um, especially in 19th century materials, the sense that the world is opening out for Jews. Um, in the decades just before the Holocaust. By contrast, there's tremendous sense of premonition. You just see it in the writing that they see just things aren't going well. And there were lots of suggestions about how to make changes. What should be done. And then And then, Of course, you have the Holocaust ammand the, uh, period that follows of time. To make sense of what occurred. The volume that covers the whole costs is called catastrophe and rebirth. And the rebirth piece is very important as well. Um, because I just didn't completely become they struggled with trying to make, um make meaning out of the intent. Terrible catastrophe of so many millions of lives lost. It is hard to find that in there that is for sure, it's such a such a horrific tragedy, but from that, we move forward. And how is Is. There was optimism on that end with premonition. How are we? Now? It wouldn't see what is the overall view of Jews now and in Israel and around the world when it comes to Judaism and their peoples. Well, I think that we've entered a period on you can see it in, Um the last volume volume 10, which deals with you know the End of the 20th century beginning of 21st. We've entered a period where Jews are increasingly again expressing diverse points of view. On Do they range all the way from very religious observance. Um, you know, the pious proceed. Um, Two Very secular, um, non observant And the thing about the posing library, juice, culture and civilization is that we include all of these. Um, this is not just, um, the religious writings of twos. Um, it includes Politics culture. We even include material examples of selections for Children, Children, stories and stuff. Excellent in the volume. Yeah, well and how, When we talk about the posing library of Jewish culture and civilization, and I mentioned earlier in the hour that This is you don't physically have to be there to t O pull from it. You guys have done this in a digital form. How How do we access this? How do we gang access to this? Okay, So that's really important. Because if you go to post in library dot com and you registered for free, you can gain access to virtually all the material that has been produced in the bound volumes. You see them is discreet Items you know on your screen, but you could search using different categories to find things on do you really can come up with with wonderful? Um, a zit were connections. One of the things that you could do online at posing library dot com is you could become in a sense your own and psychologist. You can pull together. Um, various selections that you feel, um Represent some of Jewish culture and civilization that you might want to share with others. Deborah Dash more our guest Jewish scholar. We're talking about the posing library of Jewish culture and civilization before let you go in just a handful of seconds we have left. I'm just curious your personal feeling when you look At Jews in this century. What is your feeling? Are you optimistic? Pessimistic? How do you feel? Yeah, I guess I am an optimist. Um, because one of the things you learned from Jewish history is that tragedy has been an inherent part of it. But so have, um, forms of rebirth and resilience and Esso. I remain an optimist. That resilience will Continue to characterize the Jewish people going forward. That is good to hear, because I think our world in general needs more optimists right now. That's really do Deborah Dash more. Thanks for being with us. Don't forget, folks. You can check it out there posing library dot com. Thank you for sharing with us. We appreciate it. Thank you. Sure thing. We're timid. It's away from made it North. Georgia's news talk Ugo just in time from headlines. DJ standing by with a look from the Access Wdun Hardy Chevrolet News Room.

"On Main Street with Bill Main Turning and burning on this Monday, January 25th. Oh, my gosh. Is my parents anniversary. Married in 1946. No longer live, but Still, I just signed note here and they tell you don't don't Don't give your personal stories on the air. Don't don't people don't care about you, and they probably don't care about me. But, um, you know your life is what you have, and that's what we bring a show prep things that happened. My parents. My mother got this card. It was a It was a way we have it framed at home. And it say someone did a wonderful I guess, watercolor or some sort of drawing painting. Character of bride and groom supposed to be my parents and all of her friends signed it with all their well wishes, and we have that framed at home, and it's really need toe to read that in to see that but anyway, enough of that, anyway, But you know, so all that to say, if you have stuff like that, hang on to it. And if your folks were still alive and the people that are, you know, know something about it. Get me tell you a story about it. I saw something in one of those means the other day that says every time elderly person dies, we lose a library. We lose a lifetime, a great stories. And that is that is very true. Take timeto gather as many of mission possibly can. Well. Today is a special day. And, uh, this is one of the things I'm gonna say you go. Wow, that's really frivolous, but just stick with me on this, okay? Because this particular product is something has been around a while. And it's not being used for its intended purpose. It's being used for two other purposes. It came about later. One of those is a stress reliever. The other is making sure the stuff that you put in a box doesn't get broken. Today is national bubble wrap. Appreciation day. And don't we appreciate some bubble wrap on? No, I do Every time something comes in and that don't just grab it years. Just twisted makes you feel so good. I don't know why it does for us, but it just does. Well. Bubble wrap was originally invented as a new type of wallpaper. So let that soak in for a second. It's kind of neat. Don't like that through your kid brother up against it Bounce right off. Not a bad idea. I actually like the idea of Velcro Wall paper better. I'm in a fuzzy sweater and just throw him out there and leave him. Guy came up with it 1957, and they were trying to invent a cool new type of texture, wallpaper, but no one wanted it on their walls. And can you blame them? I think not. The term bubble wrap is trademarked. As a matter of fact, there's only one company that can use it. The sealed Air Corporation. Has owned the trademark since 1983 everyone else as to use terms like inflated cushioning. Want. If I can call my rear end that inflated, inflated cushioning. That's what it's called. Okay. IBM was the first company to ever use it. They needed a way to ship computers in the early 19 sixties about them becoming damaged. Guinness Book World Record for most people popping bubble wrap it once 2681 Wow, that that was loud. My group of Boy Scouts in Denver set the record back in 2015. You get a badge for that? Was that an Eagle Scout project? I don't know. On bubble wrap Appreciation Day, which is today was started by Radio station in 2001 in Bloomington, Indiana. What a shock after their new microphones came wrapped in it, and they started popping it on the air. It is very freeing. I have none of it with me now. I wish I did. I would share that with you. On the air so you could hear that wonderful popping sound. But there you go. So it is bubble wrap Appreciation Awareness day. Rather no appreciation day. Just some more fun stuff there for you. Gosh stuff you didn't need to know. But I bet people will talk about that at work more than they will some of the other stuff. We've shared this considering similar stuff. I've shared this down some of the stuff I've shared. I would hope they would share this instead of some of the other remarks that have come out of my mouth today. But, uh as a wallpaper Who thought that was a good idea, Joe. I mean, it was in the flight fifties. I could see it happening in the middle eight sixties. Hey, man. With some love beads. Maybe going room to room with some of that bubble that wallpaper Ah, whatever. I'm gonna go find me some bubble wrap later day Do they sell it just so you can pop in? I guess he saw him fall, right? Yeah. Oh, yeah. You could buy them ball. Yeah, I think you get it like Home Depot or anywhere like that. I mean, it's packaging. Sounds like fun to me. Actually had they made a thing That was you could take camping with you in his bubble wrap, But it was in a very thick plastic made out of thick plastic. So you couldn't Poppet. Right. And what you do it, You rolled it down on the ground over under. Rather your sleeping bag. And then you could lay down on and it was sort of like a cushion The air mattress, Okay is to camp with those all the time. Now they're not as nice in my sleep number bed, but they were better than sleeping on the hard ground ground. Exactly. It's 8 49 with mornings on Main Street..

"This is Wdun mornings on Main streets with Bill Main 30 minutes after eight. New Day is upon US. New survey is upon US as well and access Wdun calm. Let's see what it says Today new survey shows that many of us still favor getting bills and other important notices in the mail rather than electronically. How about you? Well, the number one vote getter still has has been all morning long 61% say I'm forgetting a bill in the mail. 26% say depends on the type of Bill and 13% say I'd prefer getting bills. Elektronik Lee. I prefer not getting them at all. But I guess they are a reality. And you got to pay the piper, right if you're gonna dance to the tune. So a couple of things here How's your health? And I'm not talking about pandemic wise and the time my covert I'm talking about fluttering like that. How is your How is your health as far as your body breaking things falling, getting hurt? Interesting coming out from the Consumer Product Safety Commission for 2019 listing the injuries that topped the list. The reasons that we end up going to the emergency room Here again. These are simply their injuries, not necessarily disease, and it is different for men and women, at least at a certain point. For men, the number one reported cause of injuries, stairs, ramps and floors. 1.2 million guys went to the E R because of that, in 2019 for women, the number one Stairs, ramps and floors about 1.9 million. Number two for men, beds, mattresses, pillows. I'm not quite did they fall out where they're trying to move them? Did they collapse that someone put a pillow over their face? Had I don't Anyway, 406,000 Men went to. Ah, roughly went to the ER in 2019 because of injuries due to beds, mattresses and pillows. Number two on the women's list was beds, mattresses and pillows here again, slightly more women than men. 517,000 went because of those injuries. Now that's where they part company. The genders. Number three on the women's list is chairs, sofas and sofa beds. Having pulled out some of those heavy sofa beds. I could see that bathtubs were number four. MBA and clothing. Number five. Not quite sure about that. But anyway. For the guys. Number four analyst basketball number four bicycles and number five chairs, sofas in sofa beds, which tells me that after they fell off those bicycles, I got injured playing basketball and hard time hitting the chair in the sofa. Got to think about that guy's a MMA little bit better. It's kind of interesting. So that's what sends us to the hospital. I would imagine the stairs, ramps and floors. Imagine a lot of those that was number one for men and women. I would imagine. Ah, lot of those are older folks, because as you get older, your balance does get a little off. So use the handrail. I do every time I come down our stairs because I am paranoid. That is for sure. 16 minutes after eight. A 16 it double d d win while we're focusing on health and taking care of odds and ends here's one that you probably didn't see coming. I know I didn't Most people that I know Man. If I don't know anybody who doesn't like Chocolate. Now I know they're people have preferences for other types of candy, But no one says I don't like no chocolate. Never is like two parfait.

Yeah, I am gonna let this be a good day, Regardless. Of everything else is going on around here. You know you can live your life. Someone else's rules and let their moods and their attitudes and all those source of things in their views. Push you around and ruin your time and take your time and steal your mind frame. Or You could just be you. It doesn't mean you ignore people. But you just don't have to internalize everything and let it just There are things that are going on the news right now I am just ready to explode over But I'm not. I can't. I can't get that moment back. I just can't I lose my cool and I can throw a temper tantrum and I can't get that moment back when I could have been using that time to do something really cool or some really creative or something really productive. When you when you have an issue, and there are things going on, you don't like it and it is within your purview to have an influence on changing it. And I mean that in a moral, legal, ethical way. Then. Stop complaining. Start changing So there you go. I did see it Interesting post the other day on On Instagram. And it was try to remember this. This is you know, the serenity prayer. Help me change things that can change. Accept the things I can't change. You know that one. Then you know the ability to know the difference between the two. I'm paraphrasing. I don't have it exactly a no verbatim. But the theater the mean if you will was posted said that There's coffee for the things that I can change. And wine for the things I can't to help me accept them. Yeah. Okay, Whatever. Whatever. With the rise of coronavirus cases and hospitalizations in Georgia, are you staying home more than you were in the last few months. Number one vote getter. 33% is saying No, I stayed home at the beginning of the pandemic, And I still am So in other words, no change for you Just know I'm standing pat with what I was doing. 33% number one vote getter coming up behind that 29%. Yes, I am. 26% saying, no, I really haven't changed any of my behavior during the pandemic. And 12% of saying No, I started going out Maurine the last few months and I haven't cut back any recently. Well, once the abbey answer that once the restaurants reopened. We have our watering hole that we go to at least once a week. Well, we've gone back once week. Every week. We take the precautions, we social distance service. You're wearing masks. We, you know. Not a problem yet. Knock on wood. That that that Z. That would be us. That's where we put our vote. Okay, Two things in the world of jobs number one. Let me just can we just put partisan ship aside on this? And I understand that there are people who are living below the poverty line. I get that. The president elect, saying he wants to raise the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour. Okay? Because too many people working for you hours a week less than $15 an hour there below the poverty line. Hey, man, I feel for my respect that What have you done The math. So let's just say That folks start doing this. And they're made to do this. Where do you think they're going to get the money? Oh, well, those rich business owners could give up some of their profit. You ever run a business? Have you ever looked at the books? Yeah, people make money doing it. Make good money doing it. They also put all the risk and liability on the line so that tomorrow they could lose it all and go into bankruptcy. Their employees out of a job. Get unemployment. He can move on to another job and in this state There's plenty of jobs right now, if you can find a mirror and you're willing to get up and work. So where they get the money? You and I have our consumer. Prices will go up. Eventually that will push the poverty line up even higher. You can't keep funneling it that way. It doesn't work. The other part of that is the bailouts. Yeah. Hey, we need to do something. Sure. So let's just spend more money. Let's just throw more money at it. When folks realize that they're paying income tax on their stimulus. You might get a little upset, although I doubt that most people don't really understand what they're paying. They go to a service or they use a piece of software and they just do whatever it tells him. By the looking at the actual numbers, usually what it means. But it's not something that can sustain itself. Well, the government can just print more money. Well, that's true, and the more money they print, the less it's actually worse because it drives inflation up. Prices go up dollars. Not as strong as it was, it loses strength against other currencies. And then if you're borrowing the government, which they do very well, borrowing it from other places. And that pushes the value down and the debt up and where they're going to get that pay back. Where? Where did they go to get the money to you? And I Don't raise taxes. That's okay because I'm willing to pay for all these things. Well, I'm not.

"Would like to stuff him in a stocking. It's Bill Main with mornings on Main Street on AM by 50 and FM 102.9 Wdun. I just hope it's a wolf stalking something nice and warm on these cool mornings 37 degrees windchill of 30 at the moment later on 45 degrees with Sunshine is gonna be with us all day long, and it's with us now and another form. Bring out another great neighbor here two mornings on Main Street, and that not only is the neighbor on the program, but he's literally a neighbor here in North Georgia dusk, Weaver is with us. And some of you folks might know him and the hammer Sam County area and around Georgia and he's with us today. Author musician writer and basically just a fun guy to talk to dust. Good morning. Good morning to you, Bill. It's good to have you with us. And you know, this is gonna be in town coming up in a couple of days because you got a brand new book out and I love the title of this book. And you gotta answer the question about what this is all about. The book is Bill Willie the Wild Who is it? A boy at all. So what's the plot here? What are we looking at? Well, it's intended to make you wonder because there are quite a few twists and turns within the book. It's an illustrated book that many people have. Someone will speak up and say, Hey, this is a Children's book. Well, yes, it's for the child and any of us from age 2 to 100, too, So I'm not going to give away Who Bill really is, But I would like to characterize them a bit. He's a bit of a rapscallion. And on adventurer, a schemer. But often oftentimes is games backfire on and Bill. Well, It sounds like the rest of us. You know what I'm saying? Oh, yeah, He's uh He represents much of what we do in our own individual lives, but he's he's always up to something, but then it works out miraculously. And, you know, one of things I want to say it is a book for Children, but adults go again to get something out of this for sure. And you're just gonna have a good time reading with your Children are reading it to your Children for that matter, But, you know, this is this is, um It's an opportunity to kind of put things in perspective for the rest of us. I'm sure we all had plans coming into 2020. But we've we've had to make things a little bit different to make him work out. So maybe you know the lesson. Then there is far as that's concerned. I trust so there are lessons within it of Bill and his neighbors and how they interact, So I think it's timely in that sense that it it ties into what we're all facing. Individually and collectively today, But there's another aspect. I'd like to point out you said that adults might enjoy it. And I quite agree because I've gone back to a new older written now revived educational theory that Children and adults should be exposed to advance the cab. Yah Larry as In this possible freak for years. We got away from that. We said all that you know that vocabulary words not suitable for a child in this age group. So I've taken the liberty of inserting hundreds of delicious words. But they're they're inserted in such a way that even a very young child Well, have a good guess. At what that word means, and hopefully they'll ask the parents. What does boisterously mean? Yeah, And you know, that's kind of you kind of remind me something My mom always did growing up if I were throwing a tantrum and yes, you've heard me rant on the radio. So I'm capable of it. But if I were ever upset or throwing a tantrum thing She would stop me by using a big word. And I would stop immediately. Go. What does that mean? And from from the get go, That's and she was really big on that she was a poet. She wrote poet in shorts, poetry and short stories. So she had a love for literacy as well. So I really like that approach very much. How long you been working on this book is this just this year is there's been a work in progress. The joke's on me and that scent I first submitted this tea? Oh, uh, female author of juvenile fiction that I highly regarded. She was a fellow workshop leader at Santa Barbara Writers Conference. I found a letter the other day where I wrote to Joan Oppenheimer and asked her opinion of the story and 1989. Okay, it's been around a while has been around a lot and life life happened. I had three young Children. I home school them, So I had them the home school and raise up and, well, a lot of time went by, But here we are. It slows. It works out as in the book with Bill Willie the wild It works out eventually. So you need to check the book out in one way to do that is with an autographed copy. You're gonna be in Gainesville. Tell me about the event. Yeah. Be down at the on Main Street. You know what next chapter books Saturday from 11 A.m. to P. M. They're going that, by the way is Main Street without an E on it, So it's the real Main Street, Not the one we live in here on radio land. You know that girl, you know, down Main Street market, and, uh, we've actually reduced the price of the book just a bit if you bother showing up in person. You get it autographed by both the illustrator and myself Good. And you know what a deal I'll be a keepsake Be a great Christmas present for some young person and mom and dad to have somethingto read and then for the Children to pass on to their Children as well. So check it out. Don't miss this Bill Willie, the wild Who isn't a boy at all. But what is he? We're gonna find out. What is he here? You're gonna love this. It's great. It really is so dusk. We were our guest this morning. Dusk. We can keep up with the online as well. I presume. How do we do that? That keep me online. How do we do you have line online presence. Yes.

If you give him a gift, this based on our next interview, and we're checking in with John Clark from Georgia focused Georgia News Network. First of all. Good Morning, John. Good to have you with us this morning. Oh, pure well today. Morning, Bill. Morning, Bill and I do like snow. So I'd like for this, okay? We'll have it down down down there where you live and roll up here. It's now or whatever. But talking about your program coming up this weekend, Which brings to mind a book that I met to get. And have not so I need to put this on the list. Let's talk a bit about it. Okay? Yeah, It's a book called Cool Town, and it is by the author's great Elizabeth Grace Elizabeth Hale. And it is about Athens in the eighties and the music scene and happens in the eighties and how Out of that were born bands like R E. M and two B. 50 two's and Love Tractor, and the list goes on and on and on. She herself was a musician in Athens. During that time she was in University of Georgia. She is now a professor at University of Virginia. As you wrote a book, and it is an amazing book. I mean, it's just fantastic about Athens and music on the bands that came out of there and went on to do great things and it is. It's a great music history book. It really is, and then we had a great conversation. On the show about it. I could have talked to another hour. You know this? It's interesting the way sometimes things just fall into place, the crossroads of opportunity and talent, and those things just kind of Come together, and I would have not suspected if you'd asked me at any time. So Athens is gonna be a hotbed of music That's gonna influence bands across the country. I would have never believed it, but it certainly happened in the eighties was a A perfect time for that, just the way everything came together. Yes, Like the planets you lined up on that it was. It was really amazing. And You know, I It's just almost inexplicable. All these bands came in, and she says it's largely due to the art school. Eva and all of these, you know students came in and they were studying art and out of art. They started Experimenting with music and you know, in the B 50 two's great example. Um, you know, they've been around since roughly like 1980 81. They were art students, and I actually saw a Video of YouTube on their early concerts, and it is amazing. They really didn't even know how to play and they improvise and they learn how to play their instruments, And it's the most unusual. Around at that time and still is ready, Nick found it is unique. There will always be unique. They're only there's only one B 52. Yeah, it's still a great man today. So these kids they found a way to make it work. It just all lined up, you know, and I z not so much of that scene Now, as it was, though, I don't think or or is it my mistaking there? It's not not quite this is some bands. I go over the 40 Watt Club and see which is a world without clubs over there, But after years I go over there from time to time to see bands I love tractor. One of the bands from that era still plays over there like pylon. It still has a a certain line up that they get together and play over there occasionally, although they're not officially a.

And I'll just speak honestly and candidly. If you've been with the program before, you know, I am adopted. I was adopted as an infant. But there are a lot of folks out there looking to be adopted. A lot of teens is a matter of fact, looking to be adopted right now for 24,000 Children in the U. S foster care system waiting for that permanent home we have with us. Foster parent, Monica. How was joining us today are I'm sorry, Monique. How will I apologize? I got you. I didn't mean to do that money. How are you today? I'm going Well, thank you for asking. Well, let's talk a little bit about adopt us kids and about your experience. What made you want to become an adoptive mom? A foster mom. Well, maybe wanted to become a foster adopted. Adopted on Mom is I grew up my parents. They also foster Children and adopt Children as I was growing up, so that on Lee wanted me and it inspired me, so also want to adopt. When I got up agent came in and told her I thought it was awesome thing to give back to Children that desire and need a forever home. Now you adopted, uh, two teens. Is that right? Yes, sir. I adopted two teenaged girls. So how is how is that been? I can tell. By the way you're saying this has been a great experience. It has. It has been a great great experience actually changed my life. Re biological boys. So happened But long, true experience. I've got to learn all about what girl even though I'm a female, It's different when you have, you know, teenage girls. I got to learn all about all the girly stuff because I'm a team. You know, Team boy, Mom, So we're having the girls in the house. It changed everything. Well, I think also, I think, you know. And I'm a guy and we have a boy and a girl. And I think even raising a boy was different than being a boy being raised. I mean, s o You don't you don't see it from that side. It's it's the world changer in it. Right? Yes, it is. But in a great way, So let's talk a bit about your experience did with adopt us kids? How was that experience you what? What could someone who is a prospective parent? Expect when they go through this process. My spirits with awesome. It was great. I mean, of course, you have to go through the process, just like anything else in life. But with adopt us kids, Um, they was right there. Hand in hand. Any questions that I had, They answered it. I did my research and everything you know worked out well for me. So anyone that is, um want to Adopt. I suggest that they you know, they go to adopt us kids that awards get that information and, you know Go and do that. There's so many Children that deserves a loving home so they should just go through the process. It is a process but be patient. And it will work in their favor. Yeah, because it is set there to make sure that That the child gets into a safe and loving home, and it's also set up to make sure you understand what to expect. So it's supposed to work for both sides and right so far, it sounds like his work. Great for you. It has. It has a very rewarding experience. Okay, Now, now, let's let's pull back the veneer just a little bit because you made you alluded this a minute ago for you. In parenting girls. What has been the biggest challenge of surprising thing? And and maybe? Did you see yourself in them at some point? The biggest challenges so far with my girls. I have, um, just loving themselves. It was very challenging for me, too. You know, I have to guide them and tell them how to love themselves as a as a woman and as a growing up I didn't even know how to love myself fully. So I remember when my mother taught me how to love myself, it has been a wonderful experience to teach my teenage girls. How to love a self in the mist of everything that they went through. Yeah, because let's face it the adolescence it can be a really rough ride and without a good guide, very challenging it can it can not end up the way that you'd like to, But you know, I I'm so I'm so glad that you you having this experience. I'm so glad that you reached out and adopted. Hey, hey, kudos to your folks for being foster parents. My mind were foster parents as well. And I had foster brothers and sisters when I was growing up, too, so always a lot of fun and never lack of something to do or somebody to play where that's for. Sure.
