Big expensive firework shows like this one erupted in color over the carped heads of Rushmore. Every July for about a decade. But the National Park Service put a stop to it after two thousand nine because of pollution and the wildfire risk to the surrounding black hills national forest. In January president, trump said those aren't good reasons to cancel a fireworks display. They say what can burn stone stone.

President trump to bring the fireworks back. Footage of them aired all over the world, boosting South Dakota's tourism industry and he ever since then has kind of I. Don't know taking the bull by the horns you know been. Passionate about it a park service environmental review concluded in April found.

We do not anticipate any social distancing activities during the celebration protesters pushing for the removal of statues say Mount Rushmore honors to slave owners, Washington and Jefferson calls to face. The memorial are circulating on the Internet. And Native American groups plan to protest, they say the mountain carving and the fireworks desecrate land they, lost broken treaties.

The National Park Service has been doing controlled burns and back burns, making sure that we've done assessments and Met all the concerns. So even though we are having fireworks back at Mount Rushmore, you know we've complied with all of the environmental concerns that may be out there to do this correctly and safely and have a wonderful event. So Bernhardt, who is the secretary of the Interior has been fantastic to work with on it, And it wouldn't have gotten done without his help with me and the president constantly pushing to get it done. Well, Governor. Ah, I appreciate your hard work and appreciate the way you've handled Cove it and everything all the way along. I would like to be the first to be Oh, arrogant enough to even ask the question. Last year with this fourth of July, we were supposed to be in Gettysburg and we were working on a a fireworks presentation very different and really Really quite amazing, and I would love of place to do it. Ah, Is it possible at all that that Mount Rushmore might be available next year to do something? Oh, absolutely. Yeah, We're going to continue the tradition of having fireworks there at Mount Rushmore this year. Obviously, we've pulled out all the stops. We've got flyovers. The Blue Angels air here.

People are coming from all over the country to enjoy it this year, but we will tell the story of Country, our history. I think the president's speech will focus on hon. How important these leaders are in the mountain, and it will be a great launching pad for your event next year is well, We're going to continue that here totally valid. We value this country and the opportunity we get to wake up here every day. So crazy horse. They still do fireworks there, do they not. You know, I'm not sure if they do fireworks, actually, at crazy horse. They do some special events there on and there is several communities real close by there that you do fireworks. But how does the isn't Go ahead. I'm sorry. No crazy horse is just a really special place is well. It's sacred to the Lakota nation and the native Americans in the area and it is an entire mountain that is being carved today and still worked on toe honor, Crazy horse and his leadership to our native American people. So That is just not too far from Mount Rushmore. It's a wonderful thing to see it all people in the area as well. Yeah, it's Oh, it's truly a wonder of the world. I think it's if you think Mount Rushmore is impressive, crazy horse when it will be finished, probably around the year 3030. Is going to be absolutely remarkable. I mean, it's it's amazing and it's a private family. They won't take any government money to do it and it's it's really remarkable. How does it is the sacred mountain all of those air sacred mountains. Is it just Mount Rushmore That is an offense to the the Native Americans. Or is that overblown or or what? There's actually other locations in the black hills that they consider to be very sacred. I do know that through the entire black hills, many within the Native American community I believe that it belongs to them, and people will have to study our history to really see where they land on that. But there has been some legal action and some some some decisions in court in regarding that in those decisions, But regardless, there is always a consultation with Native American tribes on everything. Even with this event at Mount Rushmore, there was consultation with tribes. To make sure that we were complying with the cultural balance. That's there. So that's something that I hope everybody recognizes that we think is incredibly important. And we did consult with them as this was planned and making sure that we honored that Yeah.

Hey, had his own point of view about the native Americans and he didn't care and it was a slaughterhouse and a massacre and it was wrong and we should recognize those things.

South Dakota National Parks
"Welcome the amateur traveler. I'm your host Chris Christensen. Let's talk about South Dakota. I'd like to welcome back to the show Gary Art from everything. Dash EVERYWHERE DOT com. Who's come to talk to us? Surprise surprise about national parks. This time about the National Parks of South Dakota Gary. Welcome back to the show. It has been so long. Yeah and we never get to talk so it's always a pleasure. It has been a very short period of time since I talked to carry but we have talked about doing this show since we ran into each other. Probably at Mount Rushmore last October September September. I think yeah. Maybe it's October. But yeah we're going to t backs and and this was totally unplanned. You just happen to be a remote rushmore exact same time. It's one of those odd coincidences that happen. And it doesn't happen to meet all that often but there are some national parks in South Dakota. That are not Mount Rushmore. So where are we going if we go to the National Parks of South Dakota? They're six national park. Service sites in South Dakota and five of them are in the West located in or near the Black Hills. And then there's one all by its lonesome in the east so we might as well talk about that one. I and that is the Missouri River National Recreation area. It lies on the Missouri River as you might guess given the name it is in the charming little town of yanked him. South Dakota believe it or not. I was actually rather curious to visit yanked and because I had read a list several years ago that had the cheapest place to live in America was yanked in South Dakota so it was kind of curious to see I was kind of curious. What kind of community is this? And it's very nice and it's not rundown or anything now it's cheap. It just happens to be in the middle of nowhere and that's why the site is right on the border with Missouri arm starting Nebraska and it's fifty nine mile stretch of the Missouri River. Very nice some very large bluffs that are overlooking the river and a national recreation area. So it's not a park if you go to the visitor center and look to get your National Park Stamp. It is not a visitor center per se. It is the office. So that's where the maintenance vehicles and the office staff and they're all there and in that building there's a very small lobby and they just sort of stick the stamp out there for people that want it but unlike pretty much every other national parks that you go to. There's no movie there's no displays none of that. It's very straightforward. It's just something that you can visit. There's a bridge which goes from South Dakota to Nebraska that crosses the river and that's probably some of the best views you're going to get of the river if you WANNA take some photos. There's a place you can pull out just before the bridge. You can't really stop on the bridge nor can you really walk across the bridge. So that's kind of difficult so you just have to keep those things in mind. It's far enough east for. I think you could easily do day-trip if you happen to be in Sioux falls or if you're driving across the state I mean if you wanted to dip down interstate ninety s the interstate. The kind of runs across South Dakota East West. You could do that if you're a serious national parks. Yeah other than that. There's not a lot there. Well I should say for the listeners. The show who are either not from the US or possibly geographically challenged the Missouri River may not stick out in your mind but Missouri River is the longest river in North America. If you include the merchant into the Mississippi River in Saint Louis even if you don't include the Mississippi part I believe North think it's the Missouri Mississippi Slash Missouri. So if you took if you went from New Orleans and then just kind of banked left at Saint Louis rather than right that would take you further. 'cause THE MISSISSIPPI goes up into northern Minnesota whereas the Missouri goes much further will the I? I'm looking it up in the Missouri River just until it gets to the mouth Where it enters into the Mississippi is well for our European listers who I was mentioning this forest. Thirty seven hundred thirty seven sixty seven kilometers or two thousand three hundred forty one miles. So there's really quite an amazing amount of the length of this river not to mention the fact that it empties into the Mississippi River. The river at this point and yanked is pretty good sized. It's not a rapid river. Anything like that. It's far too big for it if anything else. It kind of gives you an appreciation for the river. Think if you go up to North Dakota there are some sites that are close to the as well and you with Lewis and Clark and these the Missouri kind of as their highway to get to the West speaking of the river. I in South Dakota many times live in Minnesota and I think South Dakota is kind of. There's two half's to the state the east and the West in the dividing line is the Missouri River it kind of goes along Nebraska and then it hooks up in when you're on interstate ninety that goes East West when you cross the river. The geography changes pretty dramatically so on the eastern side of the river. It's really flat. Is Your stereotypical great plains. Corn for miles. Once you cross it then you start to see hills instantly like instantly instantly. And that's a function of the river the meandering of the river in the flood plain and everything has basically scour out everything to the east of it and literally. When you cross the bridge you start to see some hills and that's not the black hills yet but it's kind of building up to that. I think you're still well over one hundred miles away at that point and all of the rest of the parks are in this. Western part of the state in the western part of the state is by far the most interesting. It gets the most tourists. You've heard of pretty much anything. In South Dakota it is to the west of the Missouri River in that Black Hills area. So we're talking deadwood Mount Rushmore while drug everything except the Mitchell Corn Palace.

"This is the Sean Hannity show hi twenty five down to the top of the hour eight hundred nine four one shot if you want to be a part of the program of spending a lot of time now a lot of states preparing for opening their country I'm sorry their individual states as I've been saying it's gonna be a lot easier and less densely populated states social distancing is just a matter of of the the actual population versus the geographical area when you now begin to contemplate the opening of something like New York City where we are you got it you know the small geographical area with the largest number of people and it gets infinitely more complicated but if we can open forty states and I'm forty five states and figure out New York City at some point you know we get our economy up running which is where the American people want to be and that's back to work and we can't forget that the supply chain for grocery stores even in New York in Long Island the epicenter I go into the stores every weekend and the shelves are stocked that's because the farmers that's because the people that are involved in in packing and shipping and truckers and and the same with the pharmaceutical industry our our shelves are full and every pharmacy and you got people building the ventilators in the masks and the respirators and the gals on the gloves so the entire country hasn't shut down and the sooner we get the country up and running on less money we're gonna mentally have to spend which we can't afford anyway at the federal level although we want to help out our fellow Americans and and the sooner we get the economy going the quicker we'll get things up and running and hopefully that V. shaped recovery happens as we've discussed Republican governor Christie gnome it's been discussing the implementation of a state wide clinical trial for the four hydroxy chloride could which we have talked at length about she's here to talk about that and opening up her state and about the best decision you ever made in your life was getting the hell out of Washington but I'm just guessing how are you governor I'm doing good John thanks for having me on your show well look I I know that your state is going to be easier than say New York City to open tell us what you're planning to do how you're going to do it how do you yeah we we know from medical professionals rebounds are always possible as a matter of fact predictable and likely and how do you deal with hot spots let's start with opening the state I never did shut down my state I never close any businesses who never even defined essential and nonessential businesses did not tell people to shelter in place I went instead what I did was I focus on personal responsibility and gave our businesses the opportunity be innovative I give them guidelines that are based on CDC guidance that came out on groups of ten last asked them to stay home if they weren't feeling good call their doctor wash their hands and we have cut our infection rates in half we we banter curve we're doing a fantastic job throughout the state and that's going down the spread of the virus we have one hot spot into fall South Dakota that's tied to a court processing plant but other than that I've just been super impressed with the people of South Dakota how they just decided that this was the right thing to do and they took on the personal responsibility of getting better getting the job done each and every day we got a long road in front of us but they are businesses are have given have been given an opportunity to to try to survive there has been a big change obviously in our economic activity but it wasn't because I forced them to close powers at let's talk about numbers in South Dakota let's talk about restaurants in South Dakota and and that center a how many people now have you identified is being covered nineteen positive and let's talk about the treatment recovery that necessary medical equipment ventilators all the things that you would have needed and did you have the well we've got a nine hundred eighty eight Colgate positive cases that we've had in South Dakota so far of that nine hundred eighty eight two hundred sixty one of fully recovered the issue is is that we have four hundred and thirty eight Vetr employees of this one pork processing plant and then another reading about another hundred seven article contacts the family members people that live there more in contact with them so seventy percent of my case is the end of one county that that got by far the highest rate of positive cases are tied to that one plant and its operations so beyond that you know we've got a couple hundred people throughout the rest of the entire state maybe not even that many that are positive and many of them are covering each and every day so the state overwhelmingly I'm in a good good spot much better than we thought we would be we just have to take targeted action in this area to make sure that we're slowing down the spread around that Smithfield how did you keep now for example mount Rushmore I've been to your state I've been about Russian I've actually was there a number of times when kids are playing tournaments in South Dakota but mount Rushmore is it that stay open it is our people can see it we're not encouraging people to come obviously because we don't want large crowds but but it is still there were people can feel it our our folks in the black hills you know the seller yeah it is it's a fantastic but we're we're hoping people will wait to come and see our mount Rushmore after we get through this virus we certainly don't want everybody heading to the black hills and then there being issues there but but now we have a chance I haven't given any direction to the National Park Service to close down mount Rushmore okay now let's go to the issue and maybe we can learn in a place like New York are now obviously you're watching what's going on here it's a total if I can use a freight ship show it's it's been hard it is thankfully you know what I mean they built this three thousand at hospital I'm not sure if you're aware of the Javits center thanks most of those beds were not needed is or the same with the navy hospital ship comfort most of those beds were not needed but what still and you know for the proof of models in this case thankfully were off but they've they've got all of these things online what do you talk about telling the people of your state to be responsible I love when people do it on their own because I don't want to violate medical privacy civil liberties constitutional rights that we we can't do that in this country so as it relates to restaurants they're open how are they dealing with it made it because maybe we can learn a lot from your experience yeah they are all adjusting their business practices they're doing a Kerry out and drive up service where possible they're also rearranging all their dining rooms to where there's maybe one or two tables in the entire dining room to keep the six foot distance from folks keeping it under ten people in there and then once the celery and then you know taking on the different types of approaches but and that's that's what I've found is that dictating to each individual business what they have to do is that workable I've I've long said that we can't do what feels good we have to do what does good we make decisions based on what exactly doing good out there and giving those business owners opportunity to think out of the box about how they not only protect their customers but how they protect their employees I think it gave south Dakotans the confidence and all I believe and now are that they will do the right thing and and they have overwhelmingly they've stepped up and recognized that this was serious and that they can control their own future and take care of their families and communities and and they have not been pretty direct with them I've been having press conferences every day telling them to stay home to limit their trips to make sure that they're making good decisions and so you know it's not that I haven't been giving them recommendations and guidelines the dictating to them at a time like this what works for their business I found was not going to be the best approach for our state so you got in touch with the president and the vice president and your request was that they supply you with enough hydroxy core Quinn and I know as of at least last week the White House said at least twenty nine million doses but I don't know of artists and pledged a hundred and thirty minute million tableau is a a company that produces hydroxyl Cork within Israel they donated ten million doses to the U. S. there is also you know ramped up their production of it I have cited on this program and if you like I'll send it to you I I think the foremost expert on the issue of hydroxy Cork when as a doctor out of cedars Sinai in Los Angeles forty two years of practicing he had this guy has more credentials four hundred peer reviewed papers chairman of the the lupus foundation of of rheumatology he wrote the principal lupus textbook is two thousand patients he has prescribed this medicine as he said in forty two years no patient of mine is ever been hospitalized for H. C. Q. complication he says as it relates to the recommended dosage actually he talks about thirty or sixty days nobody I know is using that that recourse run but if you start with a single loading dose of six hundred milligrams of H. C. Q. with followed by forty I'm sorry four hundred milligrams the subsequent days most are going five ten at the most I've heard as twenty days though he's talk about thirty or sixty days he said the risk is nil now this guy would know so my question is now that they have agreed to give you the hydroxy Clark win now apparently you partnered with Sanford health in your state and some other medical teams and you're doing a case study what are you doing or trial and we're doing a South Dakota is the first state to put in place a state wide state backed clinical trial of hydroxy we decided it was time to go on the offense against the virus Sanford health is a world renowned research facility and healthcare provider that has offered to meet this clinical trial but I also have two other health systems in my state our partners as well so I have all three of my major healthcare systems that will be participating on a statewide basis of a clinical trial that we have two different elements to it that will not only allow us to do a registry trial that world I work with positive people but then a second branch that will deal with those that are not positive but I've been exposed to will be able to catch the ball and what I did is ask the White House and talk with the vice president and mark meadows a couple times about it and share it then I would ask them for one point two million doses of hydroxy I like to help support this trial in the state of South Dakota and we are they go to or they will they be using as it from my S. and with it will they be using sync with it the conditions that Sanford have indicated that they will be working on the protocols they've already given the first doses of hydroxy two patients and that they're very interested in a comprehensive study Sean we're gonna be including up to a hundred thousand people in the study so it's going to be larger the first day ever to go from a state wide basis and our state is endorsing it backing it and helping to fund the clinical trial as well so yeah I guess I used to study so that their two studies going on simultaneously in New York Dr oz has been number on every day radio and TV was made for his his affiliated hospitals Columbia Presbyterian and both I'm aware of that study right his hospital and also and why you land grown are doing a study because when Dr oz's been pleading with people that have been taking Hydroxycut acquitted for either lupus or rheumatoid arthritis he wants to find people that have been taking it better call that nineteen positive he hasn't been able to find a single person yeah now doesn't mean that they don't exist he's trying to find the I know you're aware of what I'm doing in South Dakota he's discussed it and then on the national media talking about without the code is doing because it is so unprecedented so we're taking a targeted approach and making sure that we're going to go on the offense against this virus that we're going to actually not just help our people heal but then contribute to the long term efforts of.
Selling Dinosaur Bones On eBay
"You can list all kinds of things on EBay, right? Secondhand books. Vintage clothes couches, but dinosaur fossils. Yup. You can make good money selling fossils online. But that does not sit well with some scientists Cardiff Garcia and Stacey Vanik Smith. They are hosts of NPR's podcast, the indicator from planet money, and they've got the story of one guys attempt to e sell a tab Ranna Storace. Rex here is the specific EBay listing for the T. Rex it. Reads young baby t Rex dinosaur fossil the price two point nine five million dollars. So first question who has a T Rex to sell on EBay? I I'm Alan Dietrich. And I'm a professional dinosaur hunter in the US. If you find a dinosaur on your property you own it. It's yours so Fussell hunters like Alan go to fossil country. I went to where they would find the big p Rex's Garfield county, Montana and carting county, South Dakota. The find the person who owns the property where the dinosaur is Andy says, let me look around your land for dinosaur bones. And if I find one I'll give you a cut, Allen's found a lot of fossils this way, including the baby t Rex binding dinosaur bones and selling them to museums and private buyers is how Allen makes money one of the pioneers of this business is Pete Larson. Larson runs. The black hills institute of geological research in South Dakota. So far, we've collected ten different trying to source. Rex skeletons partial skeletons, and that's kind of a record. I guess okay. Pete is being modest there around forty t Rex skeletons that have ever been discovered and Pete has found ten of them. When Pete started out in the fossil business in the late seventies. It wasn't really a job that people had but that changed in the mid nineties when a couple of things happened. I. That's such a good ROY even Spielberg happened. Yes. Even Spielberg happened addressing progresses. Huge hit. And suddenly everybody was super individuals and wanted to hunt for them a number two one of the T Rex is that Pete Larson found a T Rex named sue fetched more than eight million dollars from a buyer and people thought, whoa. There was real money to be made in dinosaurs. And suddenly Montana and South Dakota. We're just like crawling with fossil prospectors and fossil hunting win from this kind of sleepy shoestring academic pursuit to a pretty hot little business. Allen Dietrich is hoping to get a premium for son of Samson because it's the only known baby t Rex. So I'm looking at it. Now, it's two point nine five million approach to cheap. You probably it's priced to move. And sale. Yeah. Now, the for profit fossil business has caused a lot of controversy among museums and the academic community because some of the people hunting just have no qualifications. So they can end up easily destroying priceless fossils. But Larson says the fossil market has to evolve with the times without these private collectors. Most museums would not be able to get real fossils for exhibit, the EBay place seems to be working Allen dietrick says he's got an offer. Who is it a good offer? Well, I'm gonna use a double entendre with you. Okay. It's a bona fide. Stacey Vanek Smith Garcia NPR news.

Ran all the way over adjoining cubicle. And I was like Cardiff you're not gonna believe this somebody selling tarantulas wrecks on EBay. This is indicator from planet money. I'm Stacey Vanik Smith, and I'm Garcia who didn't care if there was nothing else going on with that story. I was like soul. Let's do something about it. Yeah. So today on the show. Yeah.

Reads young baby t Rex dinosaur fossil most likely the only baby t Rex in the world and as a fifteen foot long body in twenty one in skull with serrated teeth. The price is today's indicator two point nine five million dollars or best offer. Obio we're best offer. So first question who has a T Rex to sell on EBay amount Dietrich, and I'm a professional dinosaur hunter Allan found the baby t Rex. But I gotta say wearing out of boots you find it dinosaur. But says y'all got to go to the right spot Garfield county, Montana and carting county, South Dakota. So those are the two really good spots on T Rex and like all good fisherman. I went to where they were catching the big bass and find the big p rexes. Yeah. This is also the first thing I didn't know about finding telling T rexes. It's like, finders keepers. Yeah. In the US, if you find a dinosaur on your property you own it. It's yours. You can donate it or sell it or turn it into a coffee table, whatever you want. So vessel hunters like Alan go to fossil country. They rove around looking for likely dinosaur hot spots. They find the person who owns. The property where the dinosaur is or might be knock on their door. Andy says, hey, I've got a proposition for you. Let me look around your land for dinosaur bones. And if I find one I'll give you a cut, Allen's found a lot of fossils this way, including the baby t Rex he and his brother were fossil hunting in Montana when his brother spotted something in the dirt. He found part of a tooth. And we didn't know what it was we thought. Well, it's too small to be Rex it. It's it's serrated. But it it's too small. It was about two inches, whereas a full grown T. Rex tooth can be up to nine inches long. Terrifying. Allen and his brother weren't quite sure. What they had. But they started digging. We have ribs. We have vertebrae we have skull. We have the legs are are extremely long. So he was a long legged guy legs for days. I wanna restaurant. That's like we have vertebrae. We have. Anyway. Okay. Scientists who studied the specimen that Allan found. Allen's T-rex said they thought it was about four years old when it died and Allen named it son of Samson after t Rex he found years ago named Samson. You know, it's got a good ring to it. Yes. It does. So I feel like, you know, it would be good commercially to sell this dinosaur with the name son of good commercially finding dinosaur bones and selling them to museums and private buyers is how Allen makes money one of the pioneers of this business is Pete Larson. Larson runs. The black hills institute of geological research in South Dakota. You're also a fossil hunter you found. A lot of tyrannosaurus. Rex is far we've collected ten different transverse Rex skeletons in personal skeletons, and that's kind of a record. I guess okay. Pete is being modest there around forty t Rex skeletons that have ever been discovered and Pete has found ten of. Of them. And he is also found in sold all kinds of dinosaurs. But he says, you know, T Rex are just undeniably the coolest

But I can tell you there's something weirdly profound about the entire scene. Maybe it's that he's not the kind of guy you normally see in the movies, or maybe it's because everything he says, and does is so mundane, but also seem so deliberate. Maybe it's just the way about him that says so much or maybe it's what he says or chooses.
