"In Washington and I'm Elsa Chang in Culver city California the corona virus is overwhelming more places than just big cities it's devastating rural Blaine county Idaho a community where the local hospital has just twenty five beds and like anywhere else in the country people in Blaine county are pitching in to help and here's Hannah lamb spoke with one controversial figure involved in the relief effort there his name is Eric Parker he leads one of the biggest militias in the western U. S. and he's trying to create a do it yourself FEMA in Idaho Hannah lamb is here with us now Hannah hi there so what is it exactly that Eric Parker's doing well in short he's trying to build an independent pipeline of goods and supplies in case the crisis gets worse and yeah Parker says hurricane Katrina and other disasters have taught Americans that they shouldn't be putting all their faith in FEMA so he and others have borrowed this warehouse in western Idaho they're using it as a staging ground and mobilizing volunteers to basically build their own relief network I reach Parker in a remote part of the state and it was a poor connection but here is some of what he had to say about it who have those you have you have all I just hope that we can as a state utilize our own network owns a pilot who will help our neighbors so basically I mean the message Parker is trying to send is Idaho can take care of itself Idaho can take care of itself is that is that the ideological aim of his militia so Parker's president of a group called the real three percent of Idaho and broadly speaking we're talking about a militia that's aligned with this broader movement of self described constitutional conservatives and yes they want to curb federal powers typically all these factions get lumped together under one umbrella label anti government extremists but in reality there are a lot of differences in some new ones among them and in this world Eric Parker is a star I mean just a few years ago he face federal trials related to an armed standoff with the government to Nevada prosecutors in court painted him as a domestic terrorist but he beat the most serious charges and today he's part of this effort kind of mainstream the militia movement his group is registered as a nonprofit corporation he's running for state Senate as a Republican and now he's trying to show that his group is also ready to step in and play the role play a role in disaster relief as well you mentioned he's running for state Senate how does all of these other efforts play into his political ambitions well I mean Parker does live in Blaine county he didn't have access to testing but like much of the county his family was sick for weeks with symptoms consistent with covert nineteen they're still getting over it so it's not like he's inserting himself in a crisis it's at his doorstep but all that being said yes he is running for office yes he's trying to remake the scary image of the militia movement and suddenly with a pandemic some of the activities that once raised eyebrows are now more broadly accepted or maybe even look like common sense you know now there is a a national conversation about stockpiling food and supplies and national conversation about whether stay at home home orders violate the constitution and where exactly that line is between public health measures and civil liberties I saw that last week Idaho's governor Brad little who's a Republican issue to stay at home order what is Parker make of that well Parker says he gets it it's an unusual crisis that requires an unusual response at the same time this is where it gets thorny for someone who's positioning himself as both relief worker and constitutional watchdog so he says the governor's order is justifiable but what is enforcement look like a citation is it people getting hauled off to jail and here's what here's what he said about that portent that we realized that the constitutional violations as long as you do not escalate and violence and force are otherwise walk the distance is a legal issue that is NPR's Hannah lamb thank you Hannah thank you some one hundred twenty five thousand retirees call the villagers home it's a sprawling community just northwest of Orlando like much of Florida they were not quick there to heed the CDC's recommendations for social distancing slow the spread of the corona virus now they are say residents Ian and Elena stone they moved to the villages fifteen years ago well right now it is probably the safest place to be because we're following safe practices here I'm gonna put my wife on hold on hello it's definitely not the league here yes in the beginning nobody followed rules people are listening to pull my clothes and our three new six squares but they went in the square anyway in but their own music and they dance they're able to hear how the stones and everybody else in the villages are coping in this era of corona virus we're joined by many to Minton editor of villages news that is an independent paper that covers the community welcome welcome thank you so I know just today the governor of Florida Ron DeSantis issued a stay at home order for the whole state that's going to take effect at midnight Thursday so I know that that will likely change things just up until now take us through today how much his day to day life in the villages changed or they're still out there dancing what if it's changed quite a bit over time because things keep tightening up and people are having less and less to do this is a community where people it's fun for it for vality and eat drink and be merry and is slowly everything's chipped away from that they can't go to the squares the last thing they can do they can play golf and pickleball but the swimming pools are close the dog parks are closed and there's less and less to do every day when Rhonda Sanders the governor came out at one o'clock today and announced this in a shelter home order the million dollar question now is how does that impact in fact impact me today hello we're waiting on some information from some of our local officials to rule on that end this million dollar question as of an hour ago everybody's in a grocery store buy more supplies let me ask how people are doing from a health perspective the population there skews older almost eighty percent of the people who live in the villages are over sixty five according to the census bureau do we know how many people have been tested for covered nineteen we've we've had some independent testing going on by UF health which is with the university of Florida they've tested two thousand two hundred and eighty people so far twenty three have tested positive growth in the number of the villages a little bit more difficult because it covers three different counties right now we have forty three villagers who have tested positive for covert nineteen though and we had anticipate that there will be more I saw also they have managed to set up drive through testing for residents yes that was the that was with the US health and people here if you've ever been to the villages it's golf cart community so they were able to drive through in their golf carts tested so it's kind of a unique unique situation here so as you talk to people who live there how worried are they what are they worried about what are the main.

A little later on Beth Myers has an update on the news. No one no one and the transportation committee, the Senate transportation committee voted for the railroad Bill. It went it never left the radio it never left. The depot. How's that? It was the Bill to find railroads for blocking intersections longer than ten minutes. And I kind of knew it would fail to pass the house, but it did not pass the Senate. And I think one of the reasons was number one how you gonna enforce it. Are cops going to sit there with timers? And then go write a ticket and give it to the engineer. So I I don't think that Bill was really going to go very far in the first place. And I said so on this very program. Newsradio one thousand Katie. Okay. Eric is in Choctaw. What do you think about the school situation? Well, I'm said this for a long time, and nobody listens. We've got seventy seven counties, we need seventy seven school districts to close schools, whatever school falls in that district year belong to that school district has a county seats. Aware that quarter? So the district has like let's say Blaine county, what is the county seat? That's that's where the. Superintendents should be and Jerry. Greenfield which tells greenfield inaugura Jerry everybody in that chantey belongs to that county school district. Now, Oklahoma is a large school district, Oklahoma county. So you divide it into where Santa Fe in Reno is because those of the hero lives. So you would have more west Oklahoma county school district northeast southwest southeast and your canoe this with possibly around.

All you have to do is consolidate just call districts. Yup. And Eric we've had this conversation on this program before what do you say, what do you say to people who? Well, some counties are so big the kids would be on the on the bus all day. Thank you don't have to write their schools. You're making a county school district with the county seat as where the district headquarters is. We've got seventy seven county we have seventy seven county seats in Oklahoma. That's but but everybody says you my kids are gonna be on the bus flash. Now, do not close the schools just consolidate to districts, and Eric I don't think it lever be implemented in Oklahoma.

"Speaking with Steve Harrison politics reporter at WFAN about allegations of election fraud that have put a congressional seat in North Carolina in limbo Seve on Tuesday. We heard hours of testimony from Andy who was a political consultant to Mark Harris. What did we learn from him? Andy is with the the red dome group, North Carolina political firm, and he said that when he joined marquesses campaign in two thousand seventeen that Harrison Alrighty agreed kind of decided to hire McRae. Dallas. And that kind of the details had already been worked out between Harris in Dallas about getting out the vote in Blaine county. Now, he didn't really object to that. He thought it was fine. He testified that McRae Dallas told him up and down that we never handle ballots. That's illegal. He told me. Tom. Ever touch. Their hands on collect nail illegal. And he makes your office, folks. Andy Yates, assumed everything was ok. He was on the stand. He got really upset and he felt like his business is a political consultant is being destroyed. And he said that if he had known about this. He would have resigned or told Marquez to fire him. And now there was one point when Andy was being questioned where the lawyer for Democrats, the democrat showed some of these past results in blatant county with male voting, and there was one two years ago, where McRae Dallas is candidate got two hundred twenty one of two hundred twenty six votes, which is really extraordinary make kept asking Andy Yates, like is this possible is this realistic? And and he really dug in and said, you know. Yeah, it is because he's got friends and family. Those results were so improbable that his answers at that point seemed a little weak. And of course, the issue here isn't solely that ballots were tampered with, but whether or not that tampering actually impacted the results of the election. What is? Is the board of elections looking forward to be able to determine that. Is there a direct causal link that they're looking to find I think that's really interesting question because the the executive director of the North Carolina Republican party he's been spinning during the hearing. And he has this little white board. He starts with nine hundred five votes, and he listened to the testimony. And here's about Lisa bread voted. She was a fellow. So he's subtracts one vote. Lisa Brett picked up a blank ballots from someone and filled it at that's another vote by his count. We're only down about twenty votes. And the Democrats have said democratic has talked about hundreds thousands of voices being silenced. And what he's referring to is absentee mail ballots to weren't returns. And the theory is that McRae Dallas is people would would pick them up for people for democratic voters unsuspecting, and then maybe destroyed them or throw them away. So far, we haven't heard really anything about that. We've heard a lot of crazy stuff. But we haven't heard about. People's ballots, not counting, you know. People who wanted to vote in the ballot was thrown away. Stephen at the end of the day. I mean, we're still talking about a congressional seat. That's open for months after the election. I mean, the people who are not being served. What are they saying about what's happening here? And what's next for the hearing? You've really got both sides. I mean that was a group of Democrats protesting at the start of the hearing on Monday, urging for a new election, and the Republicans are making a huge push just as you said that look there's no one representing this race. They say certify Mark Harris is the winner, and then you can continue with criminal investigation and the people should be prosecuted. But there's a possibility here that this board of elections could be deadlocked because there's a five member board in it takes three votes to name Mark Harris the winner. So that means that a democrat would have to join the two Republicans to call for a new election. That's four votes. That's a lot harder. That means one of the two Republicans. The board is going to have to join with the three Democrats. So we finish this hearing this week.

"One thousand Haiti. Okay. Gwen her liberty as promised. I hadn't the man in the field watching the lunar eclipse, it's a total lunar eclipse joining me this evening. Mike break is the communications director for the Oklahoma City astronomy club. He is on the shores of lake Hefner. And where there is a gathering for anyone that would like to go look through telescopes at lake Hefner to see the super blood wolf moon. Mike break thank you for joining me from the shores of lake Hefner. How's the weather this evening? Chilly, but it's the breeze has died down is really very little breeze. So with a few layers on it's pretty good. It's not bad. What about the clouds? Oh, we got people showing up right now. Of course, we're an hour away. From the partial dip forgetting, we've got five our club members here with telescopes and let's see I see about three more cars just come in. So we'll get a good pretty good group before the thing really gets underway. And can you see is it a clear sky or cloudy sky, pretty clear, there's some light wispy clouds around the horizon moon is quite clear right now. And that's what matters moon and what color is the moon right now. Well, right now, it's just the usual hormone bright twice life. In fact, I got my small telescope. I live right now. And when I look through the scope, it feels like a burning all in your head puts a really bright month. Okay. At nine thirty four when the partial custody guess nine thirty four partial eclipse. Well, it's interesting because according to my research, most of the continent missed out on the lunar eclipse of last summer, and this is the only one of twenty nineteen and it's going to light up the sky, it's called a super blood wolf moon. Please explain what is super about. Well, super super moan when the moon is that what's called parody, which means the closest to the earth during his monthly cycle. That means it's about two hundred twenty three thousand miles away. Whereas at at the apogee the maximum distance is about two hundred fifty thousand miles away. Now what it does it looks about? In other words about ten percent. It doesn't matter. You know, looming the sky, but it it does have a little extra put up to. And it's pretty bright tonight. I hear it is. Yes. What about the wolf's part of it? Well, that's an old term that has is determined. That's what they called the the first full moon of each year in January one full moon usually each month. I think it came from Europe, and it had to do with the the walls howling up on the snow, and that sort of thing for all. I know it might have been you know, from some of the mythology about the world woes. So, you know, I'm going to have people that go you didn't say where it lake Hefner. Where are you at? We are at. Windsurfers point. And if he will come west on Hefner road from the Hefner bypass just before you go around behind the Hester down. There's a road leading off to the south called old lakeshore drive. You turn left on that. And you go about two hundred yards down, and there's a parking area here. There's a little park who who is hike the trails around one around by Catherine. It's that north east corner of the lake and where the. Do their thing here out on the lake as well. So it's just south of half the road on the northeast corner. Like now, we have a second doing okay tonight. In Norman at the same old museum down on campus. The survive club members down there and also the lunar Sooners from oh, you are helping with that in the Norman to the Norman high school as the club with as well. And the good thing about that. If you're down enormous that they have the building open going to get warm. So otherwise, you have to jump in and out of your car. I guess that's right. Yeah. Okay. And then what's the blood part about? Well, when when the when you're in a full total eclipse, the the direct sunlight is blocked by the earth on. But there is like to come to our atmosphere that goes onto the moon, and because our atmosphere is made up of what it is mostly nitrogen Austin, it filters out the blues and the yellows so therefore you have mostly. The reds and oranges that come through the atmosphere and are projected onto the moon. It's the very same thing that you see when you see already sunset, and this is the question. Everybody's asking me will burn your eyes at their thinking of the solar eclipse, I know. Yeah, they are. I just looked at the moon uncovered completely with no shadow on all through my little cells. Go from there to go. And it's right. But it doesn't hurt you in any little bit. So the naked eye could see what we're going to see which is the red moon, which is sure you don't need to tell us go. The good thing about a telescope is a little more detail, but you don't really have to have telescope. You can just go out and look at the sky, you know. Could I and in about an hour? You're gonna see for free impressive spectacle that starts to impinge on the mode and gradually covers up. So you're saying at nine thirty nine is winning thirty four about nine thirty four one the partial eclipse will begin its begins and then how long by taking a bite taken out. And then how long will it last? Well, it's actually the last one or two hour. It's gonna take about an hour to become total. We actually reached totality at ten forty one. And that means the monk completely covered by the shadow, and then that's totality last sixty two minutes. So it's gonna last just a hair over an hour. And then it'll be another Arab to that around twelve forty five in the morning. Before we uncovered ago did you say totality lasts, sixty two minutes. That's yeah. Wow. Well, we we we're we're we're close to the bone. We block it a lot a lot of life. We're this big earth has been I guess it's bigger than I realized. Well, kinda thought that one because of the Cheshire cat GrandMet the net. Oh, so the so the MO the biggest misconception that I have discovered from on the internet and everything is that people are afraid they're going to burn. There is out not at all. No worry with that whatsoever. No worry about children's is or anybody's is back to the person's coming at you on the road. New bright headlights, ROY more light on his in the moment. Well, that's good to know. So oh, how many you said there are five telescopes at like half just got no one setting up now. So we've got six okay. And what would I see you said, I would see a little bit more. But is it going to ruin the face? I won't see the man in the moon anymore. Is that when we're totally flipped. Yes. It's going to be real deal. You won't see much detail on the month. But the shadow a rounded his spectacular. The whole coverage of the entire moon is is of course, the tackler, and what's really kind of fun just to watch it gradually because as the shadow lose the cost over about an hour spread. And why does the moon will dim down gradually like a reestablish dimming bell and you'll see more stars in start to. Thank you for saying that that was going to be my next question. Like, Hefner is good in that it doesn't have a lot of lights around it. But what about the light pollution? Well, the life from city is terrible. Anyway, we're looking at anything great deal. It doesn't hurt the moon at all the moons Ray rice. But as far as I standing under right now, I looked up and I could see maybe twenty stars. And if I was just sixty miles out of town. I'd say twenty thousand so imagine if you're even impede Monnet would be incredible. It would be much better. Yeah. Yeah. So people that want to head out to Piedmont. Yeah. We we fight the light pollution by all the time. And and unfortunately, you all you hear anymore. Let's get more lights more lies more lives. You know downtown is a giant light sinking. Downtown you. There's nothing to see Scott. It's nothing up there. Right kids. See anything? You're right up, but you can seize big skyscrapers. I guess we won't go there. Tell me about the Oklahoma City astronomy club. Well, we have been in business for about six years. We are one of the largest economy clubs in this part of the country. We've got pretty close to two hundred members. Wow, we meet monthly on the second Friday of each month at the science museum Oklahoma over on north king fifty three in the evening. Some PM.

Nice and have a building there, you know, to get warm and do that sort of thing we recently last year purchased a thirty inch reflecting telescope installed out there, that's the largest public access telescope in the state of Oklahoma. And the other big thing, we do is we host the okay, Tex star party up in the far reaches of the panhandle. Every fall it's one of the half dozen or so largest with long stop or even the United States, which I wanna follow up, and I have to take a break.

In nineteen fifty seven and off and on been in and out of a hobby for all my life, really. And as a member of the club. I've been able to hopefully could put some a mile skills to work to help educate and communicate to the public and that sort of thing and that is fantastic. And you're going to be at lake Hefner. Is it free to the public? Absolutely. What he never charged anything for these events. And I think that's incredible. That's absolutely fantastic. So tell me about this lunar eclipse, well, of course, what happens when when you have a clips of the moon is the the earth moves in between our position to self in between the sun and the moon and blocks the son's like that normally strikes before Mon it only happens lunar eclipse is only happened at the full moon, of course, at full moon. The moon is up all night long. It rises to about sunset. So when the clips begins the moon will be. You know, about a third of the way up in the sky in the east beginning translate across the sky, and we'll be able to follow up across to the top of the sky during the eclipse through the mice. And is this something that you have to have a telescope to appreciate no not at all. I mean, actually, it's it's probably most impressive looking at it just to make an I, you know, the big objects. It's only. It so happens that that we are having this eclipse at the same time as we're having what's called the superman with a little bit of a misnomer. It's not medically larger. But during the moon's Twenty-eight dose a big cycle. It will be at somewhat different distances from the earth may range up to about two hundred fifty thousand miles it so happens that on the night of this quips, it's going to be about two hundred twenty thousand miles away. So it will be a little bit closer than it. Normally is who may have an eclipse sorta kinda liberal Everett bickering. Even now as I've seen it promoted, not necessarily Baio. I've heard of read and seen super blood wolf moon. Well, Wolfman means the first full moon of January that is an old term that came from Europe probably believe it or not I think it was probably related to superstitions about where we'll things like that. But it the wolf. Wolf moon is the first of all known in in January shooter, which can vary depending on the date. The superman, of course, has to do with the blood moon terminology. Stem from a phenomenon that happens with most horrible and Rick clips, and that is the Sun Life is not entirely blocked by the earth. In other words, some of it does come through our atmosphere, and as a comfortable atmosphere for the same reason that a sunset, we'll be reddish. A lot of the bluish light is filtered out and the red and orange oranges life is what continues to strike the MO even though it's not probably eliminated, and it will it will have a big range from almost reddish color took kind of a coppery color. Let sounds fantastic. I'm looking at the okay, see, Astro club dot com. And at the top of the page is that what we would see. No, that's a solar. That's what I thought. I thought this was now a solo must be familiar with what a sober look like which is when the moon passes between the earth and the sun, and there's a very very sharp delineation or the moon covers the sun to the point where it covers it all. And it looks like there's a big bite being taken a lunar eclipses more. So it just has a general darkening over time as as it moves towards hotel, you'd aren't going to see a sharply delineated line between dark and light just gonna slowly sorta of bad like almost like turning a reestablish down on a life. You know, I did not go see the solar eclipse, I want to go see the next one though because it actually the later this year, but you're gonna have to go to Argentina well known that that one the one that's going to be from like Dallas or or twenty twenty. Twenty four twenty twenty four. I'm I'm just one of my Beckett lists things it's actually going to pass over a little bit of southeastern Oklahoma totality path will down around Hugo in either will Doan Ida bell. Okay. So, but even I was triple C, and I knew better than to look at the sun and all that. But I did feel the difference. And noticed the dimming. I mean, it was it was so noticeable even if you weren't looking at it. Did you go to the magic path where we had a group from our club that we chartered a bus, actually. And we went up Saint Joseph Missouri in the center of the totality path now. Oh my goodness. Well, I've been told it's just incredible the feeling that it's it's an experience that very few people will ever forget, I it's probably the the most dramatic phenomenon in nature to be app on the path of a total silver plans. And so you did that or no. I'm sorry. Did you go on the best? Sure. Did I hear it gets totally silent that everything or you hear birds or no? Well, we had some clouds up there, unfortunately. But we did get a pretty good. Good totality. Well, you've just identified. The Gotcha questioned. That is do we think we're going to have a clear view next Sunday night where at right now. The forecast a week out. It looks chilly, but hopefully road require. The good news about a lunar eclipse is it doesn't have to be perfect clear. Some patchy clouds are going to impede your view of the moon. In fact, sometimes the movie they look it looks rather. Interesting to have some light clouds Griffin across the moon particular to a large telescope, and you how big is your telescope. I have an eleven telescope myself. We have scopes in the club that range from smaller four five inch scopes up to twenty and twenty some odd inches and interestingly enough, the astronomy club, which we also we haven't observatory out in Blaine county that that a family help there the McCray. Family donated land to us, and we have built a building, and we hope concrete pads. And this past year we purchased and installed. They're a thirty inch reflecting telescope, which is the largest public access scope and the state of Oklahoma. Oh my goodness. And how do people get to go see that? Well, we have our club has to what we call member nights each month on Saturday nights when there is no intruding moon in the sky, win club members, go out and. Have an open, and we are always always happy to welcome guests. So I just need to contact with our website and say we'd like to come out on one of those nights gets. No, y'all. Various groups out there like scout groups, and that sort of thing how wonderful talking to Mike break. He is the communications person for the Oklahoma City astronomy.

I've never been involved in tennis, Bob, I they're gonna travel sort of four five six months year depending on the year. But I now feel I would love to have. And I do have a place to go when I get home. Play tennis. Teach tennis spend three four hours on court. I love hitting balls. And I love teaching tennis with anyone.

So we're not really sure where we're going with it. But I'm really excited, but we do have some very interesting project still for land on wheels. That's that's good living. I v launder on heels. It was you. I used to see the van even at the US open when they would they would park it on the other side of the bridge there by the UNICEF. And I I always thought what a great message that sent that that spoke as well as anything to the universal appeal of tennis. You could. Absolutely. I please. Please don't tell anyone that. We also spend nights in it and flipping it because some nights he's finished late at the US open. I gotta get up early and do and do wheels cleaning over as Forestville. So where do we sleep sleep in the van in the parking lot, h but don't tell you as open 'cause I don't think they allow anymore. But you we get woken up by people hitting kicking soccer balls into the wall into the side. Yeah. Exactly. Yeah. Right. Right. Right. Yeah. I posted a photo once in the parking lot your van was actually one of the goals for it looked like everyone was wearing an El Salvadorian soccer league. And your van was one of the goals. I love you know, that ever minds me of one of my one of my favorite stories about you that a friend saw you in Melbourne airport, and everyone is flying home from the Australian Open in your sitting there on a chair, and he goes up to you. And he says how come how come you're not down in the lounge. How come you're not in the Qantas lounge with? Rest of the beautiful people in and you say, I don't wanna be with the beautiful people that story always stuck with me. And I'm curious as I think about that. And if you tell me about sleeping in a motor home during the US open, where do you think he got that sensibility where Where'd you? We're values come from. I think the values comes from obviously how your race with your parents and having two older brothers and grew up in tiny tiny town in Sweden with note. Much to do except sports grew up playing tennis with with most of the people there were older than me. So the you're always sort of coached or talk to buy them, and how to be eight and and still don't wanna lose to them. But so I think that I was I don't know. I'm lucky in that way. But it's also, you know, I guess when you've been traveling as much as we all have I think that there's a little bit of a wild person in there. And and I'm looking for adventure at all times of being tennis court in the semifinals of grand slams. That's a great adventure. But that ended and so yeah, I am tennis. It's you know, it's my passion. It doesn't turn me into beautiful person. At all, I love I love the sport..
