Whether or not shoppers. Tom dick and joining us. And it really in a situation like there. They were a tweeter at the time that they redid this whole thing because retail was still red hot. And they wanted to create this this village center for Glendale. And and it seemed like this was going to be the the silver bullets for that. But then the internet happened and demands changed. Yeah. I mean Amazon existed in two thousand six I don't think a lot of people a lot of very smart people really foresaw, the devastating of it would have on a lot of retail.

"The net Saint Louis. And the obvious answer is is yes for this one game playoff, but there's a whole bunch of teams that are all bunched up together. And so every game really does matter. Our coverage once again starts at five thirty. So be sure to check that out. All right. Coming up in the next half hour of the program when it comes to increasing taxes, how high is too high and got a very provocative question to put to you. Over the last gosh I don't, know fifteen years we, have been talking about the the problems in Milwaukee county and in, the pension system and a lot of it goes back to the late. Walkie county executive Tom Aamot and members. Of the county board and other advisors who. Decided that it would be a good. Idea to. I don't know benefit certain county employees with what's been known as the pension scandal well, the the problem is this is of course left Milwaukee county essentially broke right now There is there is a huge unfunded liability Milwaukee county's unfunded pension liability right. Now is about, five hundred fifty million that he's m., as in million dollars? This means they oh five hundred and fifty million dollars? That, they do not have and don't know where they're going. To get it one of the effects of this is they're saying, okay well maybe what we have to do is we. Have to, as a starting point we got to eliminate cost of living increases retirees, are scheduled to. Get a. Two percent cost of living increase that that adds up to twenty million and of course. I understand you've got these retirees saying what do you mean we're not, going to, get a cost of living increase well the problem is thanks to mismanagement of his pension fund if you've, got five hundred and fifty million dollars in unfunded liability you've got to figure out. Ways, to stop the bleeding and candidly this is just putting a tiny little band-aid on Gaping wound nobody likes not getting. Cost of living increases but I don't see that there's any choice, around this because if you don't start doing stuff like. That pretty, soon you're not gonna be getting pensions at all Thirty five w. camp this story, we talked about in the first hour of the program about Boston store making a comeback it's it has all the, earmarks of a kind of a semi scam I. Just want to mention. That now people doing investigations if you go to the Boston store website and of course Boston store's, been, an, institution around here. The parent company by Anton isn't is liquidating it's gone in bankruptcy there's a website, that Boston store, website has Boston store is coming back in that has people wondering well This is my sense, of what's going on and it it strikes me as like a publicity stunt my guess is what happened is you, had some unknown retailer who bought the right to the name and so it is possible that maybe at some point in, time in the future they might start selling. Something online under the name Boston store a, but but the idea that all those stores those vacant stores in south ridge. And it, may fair and Brookefield square and if they shore, and, in west bend and the Green Bay or wherever the idea that those stores are coming back that's that's, not going to be the case so I think with what's happening here again my guess is somebody for. Pennies by don't mean pennies this store but pennies the. Amount no buys that the name with the. Idea that okay maybe. We're gonna try to resurrect the this name and bring it back as happens from time to time, but For anybody who thinks that this is going to be all these stores and all these, people lost their jobs come back it ain't gonna happen it's it's just not and I always hate. When some of this stuff goes on because I think it misleads the I think it's misleading to. The public that is my general sense of the matter so be careful all right, we have a race recover this going on and we'll be talking, a lot about that over the course of the next two months essentially but one of the differences between the candidates, has to do with the way we pay for road repairs now governor Walker is pretty consistently said that he he's not, he's not interested in raising taxes and you. Have if you see like there's a billboard, and I forty three it's this Scott holes thing that that that's being put. Let's put, the unions and you have some of these road-building, unions, that stand to benefit from road construction and what they want is they want tax increases because what it, means Is it means that. You know if we spend more money on. Roads that means. It's their. Employees their members get, more money so it's, it's a union backed thing but in a one of the problems is how do you pay. For increased expansion of the roads now we've just finished zoo interchange now we're expanding I ninety four between. The, Milwaukee county line all the way down to the state. Line because a Foxconn so there's a lot of, road work that's going on over the last several years and, there's a lot more that his scheduled but this is. One of those things where everybody everybody wants more but anyhow governor Walker said he's not interested in increasing the gas tax right now when you go to the pump in Wisconsin And you see that that amount to me what's gas going for now about. Two eighty gallons, at, I think I guess about two seventy nine or two seventy five to eighty whatever it is of that let's say it's two, eighty of the two dollars. And eighty cents fifty one cents is. Tax there is a federal excise tax on gasoline that's been eighteen cents eighteen cents forever the Wisconsin? Gas tax is thirty three sets. The gasoline taxes. Thirty one cents and then there's a two dollar tax for petroleum inspection fees or something but it's it's. About thirty three cents a gallon so you pay a total of fifty one cents, out of every gallon you purchase if you, pay two eighty up fifty cents a gallon is going to taxes. Governor Walker, says he he's, not interested in increasing the gas tax his opponent Tony verse says well everything is on the table Including increasing gas taxes now Iverson has been challenged by people saying all right well what exactly, does that mean right you're you're open to increasing the gas tax how much, and you know the governor. Republicans have said what what does this mean does it mean fifty cents. Does it mean a. Dollar is it mean three cents if it. Means three cents or. Five cents well. That's that's not probably really going. To solve any sort of, problem but you, know what what do what does that mean so I wanna thi this, up our number is.

"Right He True. Story I was not at the ice, bowl but the first Packers game I ever attended old county. Stadium Was the playoff game in, nineteen sixty seven between the Packers, and then the Los Angeles Rams it was the game before. The ice bowl and the ice bowl was cold but let me tell you that was really cold as well. I can remember being in the end zone it was like the the corner of one. Of the end zones and it was called the only place where they had heat was like the men's room so Lord, forbid yet actually had to, go and use the men room bedroom for its intended. Purpose because everybody was huddled they're trying to get warm but the Packers beat the. Los Angeles Rams and Travis the road runner Williams had a big game and a kick return for a touchdown. That was the first Packers game I went, to, when, I was a a young young. Kids always remember people's everybody says they. Were at the ice bowl, well okay I wasn't at the ice. Bowl. I was at that game before that and that started a lifetime love affair, with the Green Bay Packers okay as, long as we are taking a walk down memory lane when I'm moved here as a young child with my parents the there were a couple big department store chains there. Was he Sears Sears was big back then and you had Kimble's which was big back. Then but you also had Boston store which was huge and as somebody who grew up in Glendale the place you would, go to shop would you'd, go you go to Bayshore and when I first moved. Here Bayshore was an L-shaped strip mall now it's Bayshore town center before that it. Was beige them mall but when I first moved here it was an l shaped strip mall and the the. The Lynch pin you know in the corner, of, the, l. was the Boston store and. And that's been one of the linchpins. Since again for for many, of us my guests is for most. Of.

They could figure out how to, make it work and so it's. Been an ongoing liquidation sale we've talked. About it once or twice. But now it's coming to an, end because the reality is probably by the middle of, next week you're, down to, the last probably four or five days my guess is by a week.
