Thoughtful design can make streets more walkable
"Walking to work to. The store is better for the climate than driving. So climate advocates encourage people to leave their cars at home when possible but for the past decade pedestrian safety in the us has been headed in the wrong direction. Fatal accidents involving pedestrians have gone up. Forty four percent. We see speed vehicle. Speed is a major factor in austrian deaths.

These are the things that really are proven to decrease death and injury. The us department of transportation has released a new pedestrian safety action plan. That calls for more research on these solutions. The first of its kind plan will lead to new guidelines safer intersections crosswalks lights and more than anything that the plan can do to increase the uptake. And the use of these effective.

Greg Cosell breaks down Patriots QB candidates
"Pleased to welcome in Greg Cosell. Everybody knows over forty years and NFL films the guru over various the matchup show. You know, he's he's seen it all he's done it all he's and in fact, he's been one of my mentors over the years. He's welcomed me in the NFL films to watch wage different film with different people. I think he's one of the most knowledgeable people around the NFL in terms of film and I love the way he analyzes things in in fact listening to him off of recenters me in terms of I need to look at things a little bit more at a distance Greg. Thanks for joining us. I really appreciate it Greg. It's my pleasure to put a while my friend. It has been a while back, but I wanted to get you in on this and you're actually the first outside guess that I've had on my podcasts and you know, obviously the Patriots are at a weird time in the Their existence at least since Bill Belichick has been there with with Tom Brady gone and what they went through last year with Cam Newton. So they are obviously looking for their next quarterback and and that could go wrong in a variety of different ways. And I wanted to have you on just to get sort of your opinion what you've seen how you think things fit with the Patriots in terms of guys that are available right now veterans and also some of the Practical quarterback so but first I want to start with let's go back to this past season. I don't know how much you watch the Patriots considering they fell off a map there about this way of it took. Okay. So I just wanted to get your general impressions of the Patriots offense first year without Tom Brady Cam Newton in there. Just what did you see? What did you think of cams faith? And and why did you think things didn't go great for the Patriots offense last year, you know the best way I can answer that is just with what the film showed because I don't know Greg is you know the game Ovation, you know, I'm certainly not there. I don't know what's in Bill Belichick's head, but they played as if they did not want the passing game to be a big factor in their offense. Now, I'm not going to sit here and say that's Cam Newton. Like I said, I don't know the reasoning behind it. But we know in a league in which the passing game is clearly more predominant with the exception of maybe two or three teenage more predominant that the running game and clearly more so that the Patriots were not one of those teams. They were numerous games that I watched on tape where I felt watching the tape that they don't really want to throw the ball very much. So again, I can't speak to the reason why but we know in today's NFL it's hard to win a thousand up a lot of points playing that way. In in no question, I one thing I wanted to know I certainly have my opinion from watching them over the years and no one expected Cam Newton to come in and be Tom Brady at the line of scrimmage before the snap. But God, how did it appear to you that the Patriots were limited and what they did as far as checks audibles things like that that we would have seen them do in the past. I would say that's fair. You know, it's always hard to know so many people's you know on Twitter social media think they know what a quarterbacks doing at the line of scrimmage. I'm not that smart Greg. I do not know what the quarterbacks doing at the line of scrimmage just because I hear him yell out a few words. So, you know it appeared to be the case that they did less at the line of scrimmage cuz certainly one of the things that God has made Tom Brady great and there's obviously many things but one of the things that I always thought made him great was he won a large percentage of the Downs before the ball was snapped off. I never got the sense that that was Cam Newton's game even in Carolina, which doesn't mean he never did that. Of course every Quarterback does That to some degree but I thought that that was one of the the key components of Tom Brady's game. So my sense is they did not do quite as much of that this year. But then again, I don't think their offense had as many elements to age. Which goes back to my initial point I can't speak to why that was the case, but it didn't strike me that it has as many elements to it. When cam did throw the ball or when he went back to past? How long do you think he did as a whole on the season as far as you know, making the right read and also, you know, just the way he threw the ball. I think he was pretty much the cam that he's always been I think he's always been a little bit erratic. I think he's streaky. I think he'll miss throws that are relatively routine that he should make an make some throws and you go. Wow that guy can really throw it. I think that's the way he's been much of his career. He's always had some scattershot Tendencies and he'll miss some so I think that he was really no different this year than he has been in previous years. He obviously through the ball less than he had in previous years with the exception of a couple of games. It was not an offense. Other than the Running part of it, it was not really an offensive built around him throwing the football. Yeah,

Oregon moves to ban display of nooses, a racist symbol
"Images of horrific lynchings linger in the memories of those who want to make the display of a news. Illegal come most. Corwin hate, explains Lynch Mobs terrorized Black American communities into the 19 sixties. Greg Evans wants the state of Oregon to ban public displays of nooses because, he says, they continue to serve as a symbol of racial hatred and intimidation. Recently, they've been placed in people's yards displayed in marches and even this year. Exhibited in front of the U. S. Capitol Building Heaven serves on the City council in Eugene, he says the news is a personal reminder of his own family's grief of over 100 years ago. That's when a lynch mob in South Carolina murdered his great uncle. He was killed, basting, cleave or offending a white man. It was hung by a noose. His body was riddled with bullets, and then he was set on fire. Oregon's proposed new law would make displaying a noose in public punishable by up to a year in prison and a $6000 fine Corwin Hey CO Moh
White House narrows income limits for stimulus checks
"Of a threat from far right groups, including followers of the Cuban on conspiracy. Those extremists claim Donald Trump will retake the presidency today. This is not stopping the Senate from carrying on the House adjourned, but not before Democrats passed two major bills last night. One on voting rights, the other on police reform for more. We're joined by NPR congressional correspondent Susan Davis. And so Democrats have railed against bills passed in state houses across the country that would make it harder to vote curbing things like mail in voting and early voting that work expanded last year during the pandemic. So what would this federal voting rights bill do about that? Well, this legislation has been a top priority for the party. It's not new. It was introduced in passed in the house in the last Congress. So this vote this week was a bit of a do over. They've called it the most sweeping government reform bill since the post Watergate era. And what wouldn't do it would do things like allow for automatic voter registration, it would make Election day of federal holiday. It would restore voting rights to people with past felony convictions. It would also expand early voting that we saw you so much in the 2020 elections. It would also do things like create more independent redistricting commissions to sort of end party controlled drawing of congressional district. On campaign finance. It would require more disclosure of big donors. It would require transparency about those ads you see in your social media feeds, and it would create a new public financing system for congressional candidates. Would also do things like expand conflict of interest laws that would ban members of Congress from serving on corporate boards and require presidents by law to disclose their taxes. Okay, sweeping to say the least. Thea other bill passed last night is the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act. Police reform has been a democratic priority for a long time. What's in this one? This is another bill that passed in the previous congress. So they're doing it again. This'll legislation would do things that would ban choke holds, it would change so called qualified immunity protection so it would make it easier to pursue claims of misconduct against police officers. It would put restrictions on no knock warrants, and it would require new data collection on a police encounters. It would also direct more money to community based policing programs. This one is not. I mean, it's not as controversial as the voting reforms Bill, which has very strong Republican opposition. No Republicans supported it. There is a bit more support among Republicans for police reform, especially in the Senate. There's competing measure by Tim Scott, who's a Republican of South Carolina. So there's maybe a chance there could be more bipartisan effort to move that bill forward, But the other measure is purely a symbolic one of the stage. It's still a tall order in the House Democrats know based on previous failures that these bills don't have much hope of getting to 60 votes in the Senate, which, of course, is the magic number to break a filibuster, they would need 10 Republicans to vote with Democrats. So why are they so determined to pass them if the prospects looked in Part of this is just elections are making good on their promises. These issues are very important to the Democratic base, and I think it's about keeping that promise. But you're right. I mean, I think that's going to be one of the cork tensions, if not the court tension of this Congress. I think Democrats really sensitive this fact that they control Washington. Now they have Congress and the White House and they want to be able to run in 20 to 2022 on accomplishments. But they have these really narrow majorities in the House and Senate, which really limits what they're going to be able to do. You know, it's not just the filibuster to the parties are really divided right now. There's not much that they agree on. The bigger picture, though, is Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer just doesn't have the votes to change the filibuster, and it's not clear that he ever will in this Congress. One of the biggest opponents, a centrist Democrat, Joe Manchin, of West Virginia. He was asked last week if he could ever see changing his mind. And he literally yelled never at the reporters who asked him the question, Okay, digging in on the filibuster, So just in the moment we have left we have the Senate is still in session. They're debating that Cove in 19 relief package. What's the latest? You know they're making some tweaks to the bill. They've done things like reduced the income limits for people to get those $1400 stimulus checks. There was concerns among Senate Senate Democrats that too much money was going to people who didn't need it. Otherwise, The bill seems to be on a glide path. They don't expect to get any Republican support. But Democrats seem pretty unified behind it. If it passes this week, they gotta send it back over to the house to pass it back over there, but Right now. They're on track to meet a march 14th deadline that they've set, which is when current extended unemployment benefits run out, and they don't want to see those benefits lapsed. So there's a real pressure campaign to get it done by then. OK, that's NPR congressional correspondent Susan Davis with the latest thanks to your right welcome. Well, every

I guess considering the teams to decade history under the current ownership. But i liked ron rivera before. They hired him. I the way. This team has responded and grown in his first year. I m as optimistic about the team's future. As i've been in a long time and it's partly due to the talent on defense and even some of the talent on offense but it's mostly due to rivera. I feel like there's a good coach and leader in that position for the first time in years. So on this decision. To keep dwayne as a part of this thing. Despite the fact that dwayne attended a large gathering ovid nineteen protocol breaking event that included a stripper. Strippers strippers plural That was you know without a doubt. A selfish immature bad decision dumb decision and by the way to allow photos of it and allow people to put it out on instagram. I mean how stupid was that whole thing. I don't think that dwayne haskins will be on this roster and i think pudding the decision on haskins Off for a month or so so that you don't deprive the other fifty two players in your locker room and staff members. I don't think that that's a horrible culture impacting decision. I trust ron rivera. He's built up some equity with me here Over the last couple of months you know there are examples. Like not putting up with the inner trent williams situation or the quinton dunbar switch situation and moving on and moving on decisively from those two. They're bigger decisions. Like moving on from haskins early on when it became apparent to him and turner that kyle out kyle. And and or alex smith would give them a better chance to be a competitive outfit offensively And then you know. The overall continued improvement of this team is the season's gone on when it could have and would have in the past gone south in a hurry at one in five or two in seven. Say whatever you want about. The division philly in dallas haven't played as well as washington has the giants haven't played as well as washington has washington's gotten better and smarter and tougher as the season's gone along that's made an impression on me. He's done that everywhere he's been. You know the this decision that he was faced with really was to me about two things right. It was first of all you know. You can't put dwayne out. There is if he's putting anybody at risk healthwise you know and i would have to think that the team. That's been as good as any team in the league. As successful as any in the league at keeping covert added there. You know out of their sphere for nearly an entire season you know. I would assume they know what they're doing and in consultation with the league that you know by bringing dwayne back. They didn't put an entire team at risk of getting infected. I have to think that that's probably their belief you know and that it's not going to impact the end of the end of the nfl season. Remember the league wouldn't allow them to do this if the end of the nfl season in the nfc east could be impacted by a player infecting other players. So they had to consider that and then of course it's the culture culture culture conversation. Did he take into account the thing that he's referred to over one hundred times since he got the job That's where i would say you know he did take the path of we're going to win now and i'm not going to deprive the other fifty two men in the locker room Over maybe some sort of Defining long-term culture statement again. I'm fine with what he did. I know that many of you disagree and many of you agree. It's a. It's a subject that i took thirty minutes worth of calls on the radio. Show the other day and people were really split on this but i am fine with a pragmatic approach. That doesn't doesn't essentially penalize everybody else for a mistake. They didn't make they can take care of the dwayne issue after this season's over and it will still have an impact on the culture. He is looking for a certain kind of person. In addition to a certain kind of player haskins does not fit that description but haskins right now is not going to be dismissed so that a team can try to make a statement with two games left in the state In the season and as part of that statement missing the playoffs becomes more of a reality you know. Haskins gives them a better chance clearly than the other two. Backup guys montanez in heineke. I don't have a problem. With what ron rivera did. My smell test when.
"carolina" Discussed on The Kevin Sheehan Show
"In this short segment as well. I've got five keys to beating the panthers tomorrow number one. You've got to stop the run. And when i say stop the run against carolina. That's all kinds of runs from joe. Brady's inch joe. Brady is the offensive coordinator in his first year and carolina with matt rule. The head coach. Joe brady with the lsu offensive coordinator last year that produced the most prolific offensive season for quarterback in college football. History bro. Season at lsu for the national champions. Joe brady is creative. Mike davis is their primary running back. I loved him at seattle. If you've listened to me over the years he was one of the guys in the last couple of years. I wanted washington to sign. Because i knew seattle didn't have room for him. I think davis was a really good back at south carolina. He's a guy that runs hard. He's a guy that has terrific vision. But it's not just mike davis you know he's not gonna carry the ball twenty times if things go well in fact if things go well his kerry count will be like twelve to fifteen sixteen carries In the game he runs hard as i mentioned. And he's able to kind of get three four five yards at a something. That doesn't look like three. Four or five yards are there but it's the way they work everybody else into the run game that jack del rio and ron rivera have to contend with. They worked their wide receivers into the run game in the same way. That kyle shanahan has done it. In recent years. Curtis samuel has sixty five catches on the season this year for the panthers. He also has thirty one carries in thirteen games. Dj more robby anderson will get the ball to. They are going to stretch a defense. You know. I think we would have seen a lot. More of deebo samuel speaking of a player with these same last name. Deebo samuel had the. I carry the game in the forty niners game against washington a few weeks ago and then he got hurt and we never saw it again. Dj more robby. Anderson curtis samuel are gonna try and keep you honest right by stretching the field with their run attack. That's what joe brady's gonna wanna do. He's gonna want to try to keep you honest with a a run attack. It's going to stretch the field sideways. And then that's for him going to make things much easier for mike davis you've got to stop the run. This team has been a bit vulnerable to the run including last week. And they're gonna get a team that's going to run it in a variety of ways. They're going to have to be ready for that and they're going to have to stop it key number two. This is going to be one of those games. Where the team. That tackles best is going to have the better chance to win. Both teams have big yards after. Catch guys davis catches the ball for them. Mike davis does is very good after the catch. Dj more one of the best in the league after the catch for washington. We know it mckissic spin after the catch and maclaurin obviously as well maclaurin may not play. I mean he is. He is doubtful for tomorrow's game. You know he's had an ankle injury that we knew that he wasn't at the same level in the last few weeks that he was in the earlier in mid portion of the season had a couple of drops last week. Apparently is a bad ankle. He may not go tomorrow now. Gibson might be back but tackling well limiting yards after catch you have to limit the yards after catch with carolina and they have to do it as well with washington. That will be huge tomorrow. Third key to beating the panthers. Third down offense. Carolina's has had a major issue on third down this year. They're thirtieth in the league. Giving up fifty percent conversions on third down. It's one of if not the biggest reason that carolina has has a foreign ten record. I would say the loss of christian. Mccaffrey is probably the number one reason. They're just a different team. With mccaffrey in the lineup. And i don't think they would be foreign ten. Had mccaffrey played fourteen games this year but number two on the list is their third down defense. They are not good on third down even though they've improved a little bit here in recent games but teams have converted fifty percent on third down. That is the third worst third down defense in the league. Listen to this in two close losses to to the best teams on their schedule. The chiefs in the saints. Kansas city in new orleans combined against carolina's defense to go eighteen of twenty four and third town that seventy five percent. That's unbelievable and yet they only lost those two games by a combined. Five points that tells you how capable this team is. Washington's done a good job over the last nine games moving the football possessing the football. And the reason they've been able to do that is they've converted on third downs last week with haskins ten of seventeen on third down against seattle. They would take that and run with that tomorrow if they can convert at that level tomorrow. they're going to have a very good chance to win key number four to beating the panthers tomorrow takeaway teddy bridgewater first-option. He gets a little antsy if the ball isn't coming out quickly based on what he thinks is going to be open. Pre-snap he can get hot. Bridgewater is a guy can get hot and get into a rhythm. He is fourth in the league and completion percentage. But if you make him wait and read it out. The ball isn't is accurate. Help take some sacks to you. Know he's got receivers. They can get open. They can make plays I've already mentioned tackling well after they catch it. But you don't even want to get to that point with carolina's offense. This isn't an easy matchup for the skins it isn't they've got guys. That are hard depress in man coverage. They've got guys that can find holes against zone coverage make bridgewater get to a second and third reads. He'll read it out. He'll read it out correctly but he's less accurate when he's got to come off that i read and hold onto the ball a little bit longer. Fifth and final key to beating. Carolina dustin hopkins. You know. he's missed a kick in nine of their fourteen games. This either a field goal or an extra point last week. Crucial miss of an extra point and that made a huge difference. In the outcome of the game against the seahawks instead of potentially in position to kick a game tying overtime forcing field goal they were down five and they had to score a touchdown. I think tomorrow's game's to be close. I do. And i think a missed kick could ultimate ultimately be a major reason that they lose the game if they lose it Dustin hopkins has to be perfect tomorrow. The john slide their kicker big leg but also inconsistent as well so kicking will be key for washington. Hopkins has to make his kicks tomorrow. You know it's not gonna be a windy day. It's not going to be a brutally cold day it's not going to be a wet field day It should be a good kicking day tomorrow at fedex field Hopkins has to be perfect tomorrow If not we could be sitting here having a conversation on monday. About how a miss. Pat or a missed field goal which was makeable with the major difference in las verses. Win all right my prediction. I don't like washington tomorrow. I'm hopeful. I i want them to win the game. I want them to go into the city. Finale against the eagles not having to win that game you know if they lose tomorrow even if the giants lose if the eagles win over the cowboys the eagles then control their own fate. The eagles then would be playing washington for chance to win the division I think washington's going to clinch the division. But i think it's going to come next week in philadelphia. I don't like the game tomorrow. My prediction carolina twenty three washington. Twenty two my thoughts. On ron rivera's handling of the dwayne haskins incident after this word from.

"The price of one. We hope to see you there. You don't want it. You don't need it but you're gonna get it anyway. That kevin she and show he is. kevin hope. Everybody had a great christmas. This is going to be. I think the shortest podcast. We've ever done it's me solo with. I don't know three to five minutes on maybe three to five topics tops. I don't even know if that's going to be accurate but it seems like a good plan right now something easily to consume For you guys on. I think they call this boxing day. The twenty six th when you box everything up to take back. I think that's why they call it boxing day anyway. I hope you had a great holiday here. Goes topic number one. Beware of the carolina panthers. Tomorrow's game against carolina is not a lock. It's the furthest thing from it carolina's foreign ten. I understand that you know washington if you're not paying attention they're six eight. They're only two games better than the panthers in a normal year without a terrible division like the nfc east this would be a totally meaningless game that people would describe as a matchup between two bad teams playing out the string but tomorrow is different because washington could be playing at four o. Five tomorrow afternoon. Four the division. You know the giants play the ravens at one o'clock and we all believe that the chances of new york upset against the baltimore team that needs to win a long shot. Even though apparently daniel jones will play in the game but if the giants lose which they should as an eleven point underdog now guarantees in the. Nfl's we saw last weekend with the jets beating the rams and the bengals beating the steelers as seventeen and fourteen and a half point underdogs respectively. Nothing's a lock. But certainly washington should more likely than not enter their game tomorrow afternoon against the panthers with a chance to clinch the division amazingly by the way if they win the game tomorrow and the giants lose and they clinched the division. I don't know if this has ever happened. Has a seven win team. Ever been able to rest their starters in the final week of the season because they've already wrapped up their playoff fate. That's already over the division wrapped up. I can't imagine that a team with seven wins. Seven and eight going into the season. Finale has ever been able to rest their starters because they've already wrapped up on their playoff position Anyway warning. I think this is going to be a very tough game to win. You know. let's start with the panthers. They are foreign ten you know. And yes. they'll be without christian mccaffrey again. They'll also be without one of their best defensive players. Brian burns. But the panthers have been without mccaffrey for much of the year and yet they have been a very difficult team to beat. Eight of their ten losses have been by eight points or less the only two games out of the fourteen. They played this year where they really didn't have a legitimate chance to win the game late. Into the second half where the two games they played against tampa bay they got blown out in the opener or early in the season two tampa bay not the opener but early in the season thirty one seventeen and then i think the game was tied in their second match up and they ended up Getting blown out late. By the buccaneers. Every other game winnable in the second half including for the panthers in losses to the kansas city chiefs in the new orleans saints among others. The panthers haven't been the type of team that a team like washington has just handled with ease. Hasn't happened at all this year. Tomorrow is basically now a tossup according to the point spread washington right now is just a one point favorite in the game so the team that has to win. The game is a one point favorite over the team playing for nothing appears to be a perfect setup for a contrarian better like me more on that coming up when i get to the smell test as i'm recording this there is no for sure word on alex smith or dwayne haskins for tomorrow. Alex made a move in the right direction of playing with his Playing tomorrow with first team reps taken yesterday friday Today will really determine more likely than not if he will get the start But as we're recording this no No definitive word on alex as of now now if he starts he better be one hundred percent healthy. If he isn't then chase young in montana's sweat are going to have to carry this team. Victory like they did in san francisco. I do not want to see. Alex smith out there if he's not healthy. It won't work if dwayne starts. I don't feel as badly about it as some of you. I don't know how he'll react to the wiki. Just add but if he can play like he did in the final quarter and a half against seattle. I think the offense is going to be just fine. I much prefer much prefer haskins over a less than one hundred percent. Alex smith to me. That's not even a conversation. It's not even a debate. I thought haskins played his best football of the year last week. If you miss coolies film breakdown. Dwayne the other day. I think we did it on the wednesday show from wednesday's show. Chris agreed with me on haskins thought. He played pretty well last week so anyway. This is a game. They can easily lose right. Vegas sees it. Washington was a two and a half point. Favorites down to one I think that the public loves washington. Trust me this will be included in the smell. Test coming up here in about ten minutes but This is a game that carolina these more than capable of winning despite washington's urgency to try to end it tomorrow Especially if the giants lose and if the giants win it'll become even more crucial so that they can contribute. They can continue. Excuse me to control their fate heading into the final week. All right. i'll give you my five keys to a win over the panthers right after this word from one of our sponsors this episode is brought.

"For the fly Fisherman tow either. Um, take it and go find a stream and get on it or Tonto. Make better time of having to stay at home by reading about these streams and then planning which ones they're gonna go to once we take the leash off. So it's been a little bit of both. I've had some people call me and say, You know what? Since I bought this book, you know, uh, two out of four weekends last month, I was out. And I wouldn't have been if I hadn't found this stream in this book. I've never heard off and and read your description on it, So it's been it's been, uh, I think it's been a positive effect. Uh, So far. This is Bill Barty. Here on the Carolina outdoors. We're talking to author Sam are Johnson, the author of the book Flying Fish in the Blue Ridge Parkway, The North Carolina section here on the Carolina outdoors. In Sam. Let's get into the book a little bit. The Blue Ridge Parkway is coming up on its 85th birthday. It in totality is 460 plus miles have seen it by way through North Carolina. And Virginia. The book kind of gives a breakdown of North Carolina. But it gives a history and a breakdown of the hydrology, hydrology and biology and And, uh, you know the, uh, the water there, watershed there, uh, in North Carolina, Will you talk to us about the history of the Blue Ridge Parkway, Its construction And how that watershed over there works. I'll be happy to because that really eyes how this book got started. It got started because of my love off the parkway and and coming up investing it. Every year of my life since I was about seven or eight years old when we came up, but the parkway was a Zay said in the book is it was a product of an ill wind. That really blues ended up blowing some good and by that I mean the parkway was a product of the great Depression of the last century. Um President Roosevelt. Was enchanted Shenandoah National Park visiting the Sky Island Parkway area there when, when, when Senator Harry Flood Bird Um, made the recommendation that Hey, you know what? Um, Mr President. They've just opened smoke him out National Park. On diminished available now for for tourism. Why don't we connect these two parks with a scenic roadway that would run the spine of the Appalachian Mountains? Between Shenandoah National Park and this great Smokies. Course. Roosevelt being aggressive, he wasp thought. Well, you know, that's the one hell of an idea. Not not only would we create a new uh, you know, a new venue for for the recently Motorized public who were just now being able to buy cars and bride and take vacations and trips, but we'd create a huge number of jobs. And so In the early thirties about 1933 You know, the decision was made T do that It was handed over to the National Park Service, which a lot of people may or may not know that the Blue Ridge Parkway is a national park. It's in its entirety is in fact, it's the longest national park in the world. And so, um, Construction began around Cumberland Gap, which is right, right, very close to the Virginia North Carolina line. And then, um, as they acquired the land, which was acquired by the states or chartered with, Okay, Here's the route. But the state you're going to need you don't need to give the land and negotiate the deals with landowners, which wasn't easy. If they got it done, And then you're going, You're gonna sign that you've got a charter that land over to the National Park Service. And then we'll start construction. So the parkway was built. Not in continuous, you know sections. It was built in kind of a hopscotch method. As as the property was was acquired, surveyed and roads were built to it in order to get the heavy equipment on it. So it um it was built up until, uh, the World War two and then they had to stop and most of the construction That if the end of World War two there was a large funding effort called called Mission 66, that put several billion dollars into the National Park Service to help them finish. They they Blue Ridge Parkway, and they did finish it all except one stretch on the south side of Grandfather Mountain, which which the Morton family. Said, No, you're not gonna blast off the side of grandfather Mountain and put a road on it unless you do something to protect the habitat, which is very special, and it wasn't until the late seventies until they finalized that and then I think it's like 1980. Seven. They actually finished the Glencoe viaduct and 50 years after they started building the Blue Ridge Parkway. What? At 50 years they completed the last section, so 469 Miles were finally completed 50 years after they started, so that's kind of in a the IRA short form history. Of the parkway. All the construction was done by the public works groups that started out of the Depression like the C. C. C Corps, the public work organization. Um, that may jobs for people badly needed jobs. On and right now, the Blue Ridge Parkway is operating on about a 16 to $18 million a year budget. And which is a tiny budget for road this size, but between two and 300 employees So it is really underfunded Sequestration really heard it and Um, the great American Outdoors Act, which was just re funded, has put a lot of money back into the parkway to open up. Some of the venues do some repaving and some of the repairs that need to be done, But it is a true national treasure. What a lot of people don't realize Bill is that it is surrounded by great trout order. And that was the genesis of this book. Um, where I could combine two things that I dearly love is fly fishing. And then and then the Blue Ridge Parkway because you travel the bluish Parkway for just very short distances. You're either crossing a great trout stream or river. You're very close to one That's on the right away or in the national forest next to it so well, And that's what the book is. Fly fishing the Blue Ridge Parkway. North Carolina section. We've got the author Sam Johnson on the program and saying the 1st 81 pages at least break all this down the history, the biology, the safety and preparation. But then after that come your breakdown of the different sections of stream that this roadway makes available to us. Talk to us about that breakdown after major 81 that you have there and how you broke it down. Because you, you GPS coordinate it. You But you also raid it. It's a great book on where to fish along the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina. Well, Bill. That's a great question. Because being a big a fly fisherman myself, you know when someone is talking to me about a stream, you know there are certain things that I want to know.

"On a Saturday morning be in the airways Wlbt radio. Or maybe you're subscribing and listening to us the a podcast. We hope that you'll write and review the Carolina outdoors. Wherever you may be listening to us. It helps other people find us and hopefully they will also enjoy us here on the Carolina outdoors. Danny getting right back into it. You've written several books on hiking across the South East and North Carolina. You had hiking the Carolina Mountains in 2007 followed up by hiking the North Carolina Blue Ridge Mountains in 09. You wrote a book about the mountains to say trail across North Carolina in 13. And then you had forced alligators better battlefield to my journey through the national parts of the south. That was in 2016. But now in 2020, you've got a new book out there celebrating a North Carolina Jim that we have here. We're going to learn a little bit about this place full of waterfalls, hikes and bikes. It's called DuPont State Force. In your book is DuPont Forest, a history? So as we talk about DuPont Force when you educate us a little bit on what a state forced is a state forest is sort of the equivalent of a national forest. It is a place where record in general where recreation is on ly one of the missions in general. Recreation shares the mission with hunting, logging and several other extract mineral extraction types or uses, however. Bill. We have to add the word recreational, Duke Forrest DuPont State Recreational Forest, and that words means a lot and that this is focused on recreation, though there is a little bit off lodgings and hunting. Nothing like our national forest and nothing like more common. North Carolina State forest. They recognized that DuPont was used mostly by recreational people, Hikers, bikers, horse people. Heck, they even had longer tracking so the little hunting and logging I kept to the periphery. You know, one of those places that is not crowded, Uh, and it's minimal. Well and speaking of crowds well for our listeners, Let me say this first DuPont State Forces location. Is really ah, southeast of Brevard, North Carolina. It's getting down there close to the South Carolina line. Heading that way. But southeast of Brevard is where DuPont State Recreational Force. Thank you for that. I'm being educated here on the Carolina outdoors. It has a very Really one of our newer, if not our newest, Ah state recreational forest, but it's got a unique story in regards to 1/20 century industrial property. Is your book go into that history? Oh, absolutely. And that's what really kicked off my interest because when I came here and started hiking with Carolina Mountain Club, I found that several of the The the hikers and what DuPont Corporation retirees and that really perked my interest. And most people would. He didn't know the history or they had bits and pieces, but it had there had been a manufacturing plant there for over 45 years. And I certainly go through the history ofthe how DuPont bought the land from individual owners and the End. I sold the land at very bog and basement prices. Some people say they gave it away. But in the middle, there was some drama off. Most of the land what became forest, but some of the land was going to be a housing development. So, uh, residential housing going into this particular area? And I remember when this happened because this is this is less than 10 years ago, 15 minutes ago. It's 20 years ago, we are celebrating a friend's DuPont Forest is celebrating the 20th year off this grace victory. Many of our listeners know how it goes when 10 years turns into 20 years really quick, but anyway, so that's where the Ah, an advocacy group got involved because, and we want to talk about the property itself, but part of it was because many of the homes were going to go up around these famed waterfalls. And that is also covered in your book. If you're going to go for a hike, and two pot state recreational forest there, southeast of Brevard, North Carolina, you can't take a car in there, but you're going to be treated not just to these biking trails and hiking trails. First to some wonderful waterfalls as well, that are worth noting. Will you talk to us a little bit about that? Because I know you covered those in your book. All definitely DuPont Forest, which is what we say. For short has six waterfalls and three of them are what I call the top of the pops. They are very easy to get to know you can walk all three of them in three miles. I know it sounds like I'm selling something. 3 ft eight. And that's where the crowds are. Because the hiking is so easy. Right. And then there's three others that are just is exciting and or not. A little bit further away. But beyond the six waterfalls there five late now, you know that in North Carolina and and in the South, there are no natural lakes because we never had the glaciers that let's say Rocky Mountain National Park head so five lakes We were built for DuPont by DuPont Company for its employees, its customers. Fascinating and two were built by completely a different entity that we probably don't have time to get into. But I get into it in my book. But there was a summer camp there. And it was a summer camp had nothing to do with DuPont was just happened to be next door and you know, and what is a camp without a lake, and so they build the largest lake leg Julia and another smaller lake. And this was a private camp and at some point the owner that tide of this mission and sold the land to DuPont Company Way before DuPont ever thought of selling it to the forest. So now we got five lakes. And we have two cemeteries. Why? Because obviously, there were people living there before DuPont Company came in to buy the land. And so they're well maintained by the Forest Service and by the way By the descendants, but we've got to name cemetery and lots of other stuff. Um, what is an airstrip doing in the middle of a forest? Read the book and dad Assiut, speaking of the book, We Have the author Right here, Danny Bernstein. She's an author, Hiker Trail advocate, and we're talking about her new book, DuPont State Forest, or Someone's got those at Jessie Brown. So you can get him wherever you may be buying books. It is available, then he really quick. I need to talk about this. We've talked about hiking and riding your bikes..

Maybe introduce you to a person that you need to know about and learn about. That's what we do here on the Carolina outdoors in it is a great time of year to be outdoors fall in the Carolinas is a beautiful time of year to get outside, and many Carolina Carolinians are doing just that, as they look for ways to adventure explore. And exercise in places that maybe they've never been before or never heard about before. Our next guest here on the Carolina outdoors, his tight places around the globe. Oh, she's always ended up coming back to North Carolina. That's what we're going to do on this segment of the Carolina outdoors, has learnt about author hiker and trail advocate Danny Bernstein. Danny, Welcome to the Carolina outdoors. Well, thank you very much for having me on. I'm excited. About what? It's been a little bit with us. I mean, you you have written prolifically and we'll get into that before, but, hey, we were overdue for some Danny Bernstein. Time here on the program will re introduce you to our audience out there. Um, first off, really? In your first life. You were a computer scientist and a professor, really teaching computer science. But somewhere along the way you became ah, multiple time published author Ah, Hiking guide and, as I said before a trail advocate Danny, tell us about that. Were you always a hiker? O R. Did you progress from computer science into hiking later in life? Well, my husband and I discovered hiking in our early twenties, and that was a long time ago and we hiked on weekends. We joined the hiking club in New Jersey. We vacation we hike on vacation, But of course, we always punched a clock. But, um, after 35 years, they let us out of New Jersey. And we came down here because, uh, we had done the whole Appalachian trail in segments over many years on our vacations. And discovered this was the best place for hiking for daily hiking. So we settled in Asheville and I've been here almost 20 years. So I am from Asheville now. Well, that's well said in and I may ask this a couple of different times and a couple of different ways, and you kind of hinted towards it just then, but But what made and makes North Carolina's so special in regards to the sport of hiking, and I think you alluded to it a little bit in that adjective of day hiking. Yes, way we like to back back in the old days, we backpack we came Absolutely. But on a day to day basis from anyplace in western North Carolina, you Khun do a strong Hich 12 miles in the Smokies or DuPont, etcetera and be home for dinner. Where out West, which is wonderful, and it's beautiful. You have to do this on the vacation or weekend? It becomes something special rather than part of your life. That's the way we looked at it. And I've not been disappointed. Fantastic. And, of course, here you're speaking to me in Charlotte, North Carolina. And even though Charlotte is not in the mountains were fortunate to be able Teo. Even if we want to leave our county or or even the surrounding counties, which have wonderful hikes. It's still an easy job. To get to the North Carolina Mountains and Danny. I should say this because you're only one of a few people who have done the entire state. Of North Carolina on a hike. You mentioned the Appalachian Trail. Talk to us. Ah, really quick about your hike across North Carolina on the mountains to see trail. I'd love to the mountains to see Trail is our North Carolina trail and it's a post and it does show the best part ofthe North Carolina so it starts on the North Carolina Tennessee border. And through the Smokies and then basically follows and criss cross Sister Bluish Parkway. Almost to Virginia. That's 330 miles. Um, but of course, he doesn't go into Virginia because it's a North Carolina trail. And then it goes through the Piedmont, though not through Charlotte. I must say very close and it doesn't go into any cities. Okay, so way. I'm going to say it heads towards Raleigh. You're not walking downtown. You are walking around rolling around the big cities. And eventually it ends up a jockey's Ridge State Park 1150. Miles, and you will have seen the best of the mountains. Piedmont. The history which I found fascinating. Of course, the coast. Well, att the time you did that you were Ah, I think only a few dozen people, not even Ah, a couple of days. I'm number 21. Ah, So you're the two dozen people had done it. Of course, that trail still has AH, an advocacy group that it continues. Tio acquire property and work on that betterment and that and you are a trail advocate very active with the Carolina Mountain Club. Which is based in in western North Carolina. I want to get into it. We can't help but talk about covert 19 in 2020 and what that has meant for the outdoor. Realm of activity. And as an advocate, you have led trips. You have an awesome personal motto is well, that is no place is too far to walk. If you have the time, so, Danny, so many people are working from home schooling from home. They actually now really did have the time with different things. Canceled vacations. Cancel that sort of thing. Are you seeing more people out on our North Carolina trails? Well, in terms of numbers, I have to say yes during the spring. Parks and Farrah started closing, and I must say the only thing that's stayed open because there's no practical way of closing. It was the mountains to see trail. And I was very grateful for that. Sometimes I would go back and forth the same fire. And now everything is pretty much opened up. We have a lot of new hikers. But what I have found and complete and continue to preach is if you stay away from the top of the pops. You will find nobody. Let me give you an example in the Smokies are this past Sunday, a small group of CMC is Piped up. Thomas Divide trail in the North Carolina side of the Smokies came down Newton balls. I was 10.5 Miles about six hours. We saw two people at the very and two people were coming up and given it was about to be a clock. You knew they weren't going very far. So stay away from the easy popular hikes and they're they're always there in every park and forest and you'll see very few people. Sir. There is a way to get away even today when your neighbor's air heading out into the into the mountains looking for their own height. There are plenty of places. Get yourself a map from Jesse Brown, of course, and get yourself what I call a real map. Not something you printed off the Internet. And you will find I mean, the Smokies as over hate 800 miles of trail are you know you're not going to find crowds on all of them? Same thing with the with the Blue Ridge Parkway. There are some very easy hikes but again on the MST there plenty places with very few people. Hey, we're going to jump in and talk about some special places right now. Our guest Danny Bernstein on the Carolina outdoors with yours Truly Bill Barty from the place after mentioned by Danny Jessie Brown's and we're glad that you are listening to us here on the Carolina outdoors, whether the early on a Saturday morning be in the airways Wlbt radio.

"Military Park. On its sesquicentennial. A crowd of 75,000 people gathered together to hear President Herbert Hoover 75,000 people, which is a crowd in the pandemic. We can't even sell them, but think about it back then. Where did they all come from? And how did they get there? But this part it really is. It's a beautiful park. It is very accessible to our whole region. Run off. I 85 just a couple minutes off the highway. Beautiful hiking trails to walk through there. So beautiful monuments. Come here, Commemorating that moment in history or those moments in history and I would challenge you to go take a look at it, especially if you love Local or national history, or you have someone in your life who kind of cultivating those interests. This is a great place to go. And then, as you alluded to you have Kings Mountain State Park. You've got Crowder's there. There's so many great options. If one maybe has a few too many cars there pop over to the other one very close by. This time of year. It's a beautiful drive. It's a beautiful hike or a walk. If if the term hike scares you, there are plenty of good walks. Some might be uphill a little bit, but if you go up, you got to come down. It'd be just fun. But this is a really neat place on its is so important in our American history, and we typically don't hear about it. The history books for school we know about Plymouth Rock We know about the shot heard round the world one if by Land two if by sea maybe we hear about Francis Merriam, and there was a movie kind of based about him with Mel Gibson. Maybe we hear about Yorktown. This has Cornwallis nearby. This has all kinds of good stuff. Daniel Green. All these huge American, You know, Revolutionary War personalities. Davy Crockett's dead for going to say all that's happening right in our backyard. Wanna go take a look at it. It's right here for you all. We'd love to talk to you about it more in the store or email. Give us a call 745560020 about this or any of the other great local parks. You were talking about 6885 acres and kings Mountain State Park. Ironically or not, ironically, but, uh Cornwallis Wass. Here in Charlotte. During that time, and the The Patriots, I guess is what we call them. And they're full of colonels whose names we would recognise now. Colonel Shelby Karna, Mick. Now I mean, Colonel goes on and on. I can't do it without my notes, but anyway of they were in Hot pursuit of getting Patrick Ferguson and his newly recruited members who were loyal to the crown, and they surprised him. So an underwhelming group of militia took an overwhelmingly outnumbered Group of loyalist and defeated them soundly, but anyway, so it's got tales of Charlotte in there that are all hooked into that part, but Right now is a great time to go over there to escape some of the crowds of the more crowded state parks it maybe west of Charlotte. So you can get out there easily Park easily access it from 85 0 are any of those other places and you can also This is very important to make mention of that. There are three parks there together with North Carolina's crowd, Crowder's Mountain State Park That's North Carolina Park in Gaston County. And then you have Kings Mountain State Park, which is in South Carolina. Cherokee and your county and then you have the military park there as well in Blacksburg, Cherokee County, but Those three parks work together in concert to a degree because they are linked and they are linked by a relatively newly formed Trail called the Ridgeline Trail. So for Ah, hardier hiker, you can start in the state of North Carolina in hike this this Ah single track hiking trail. Down into South Carolina and at its terminus in the federal park there, so you do need two cars. Unless you will not do a 30 mile hike part of it downhill part of it uphill. You do need to take water, So if anybody's going to undertake that, that particular hike, some people run that for exercise. But you do need someone to help you manage the cars for drop off and pick up if you're going to start in one park. In North Carolina and hike all the way into South Carolina. I would be remiss as well. If I did not mention that Kings Mountain also has like Crawford in like York, so you can go down to those two separate. Park Lakes for a little bit of fishing in a little bit of paddling. It is something to see. And the hikes are a bit easier. So if you have Ah family that you want to take it as I mentioned I took my seven year old daughter and she definitely out hich may. So where's I would put that towards you that maybe great family trip for a little bit of hiking. Do take notes during the pandemic. Both The visitor centre in the federal park maybe closed where they have a little bit more of the history that they'll show a movie that sort of thing. Colonel Patrick Ferguson's grave is also located there in the military part You know, regardless of the Heike distance or the incline do want you to make sure before you go, you have the right footwear, which includes socks. And a good, supportive shoot. If you don't have those things come out the store. Let our staff spend some time checking out what you need both to fit your unique feat properly, but also for your excursions. And then don't be afraid if we mentioned to you To consider tracking polls because they have all of us moved more efficiently and more safely. Yesterday, we had a great time outfitting folks for local and faraway hiking shrimps. So that's one of those things that everybody here Jesse branches were comfortable with. I just don't want you going out there with a pair of raggedy old shoes where you can hurt your feet or your ankles, your knees or your hips. We want you to have a good time and to develop the habit of going back again. And the easiest way to do that is to make sure you have proper equipment for your body, which includes your feet and we can.

Although I'm looking up Jason Gear because I wanted to see where he played I know. He's always coached in Dallas Actually he coached for Two years in Miami's The quarterbacks coach I didn't realize it but you know he played late for the giants from two thousand two thousand three. He actually played a was on their roster. Any backed up Kerry Collins in New York in the early two thousands which means he would have been on that team that went to the super bowl loss to the ravens. I didn't realize that right. Now if take giant you have to hire somebody that nobody knows about though. They can't hate them. Yeah like like drafting Daniel Jones You know nobody somebody like look I think. Marvin Lewis is a good football coach. But I don't think this is can hire him either. I I think the fans would go. Nuts Gino Jason Garrett. Apparently spoke at an owner's meeting being last spring. I think it was. I was reading about this over the weekend before it became official that he was gone in Dallas and apparently wowed the audience which was Owners and I. I can't remember where I read this. Tommy but basically was a paragraph that said Jason Garrett is an impressive person He. He spoke at the owners meetings last spring and everybody walked out of that room. Incredibly impressed with Jay Garrick. Clearly jared didn't want to move on from him he he loves Jason Garrett and maybe even in those three or four years of him playing when the mirror zone the team and they still own the team in the early two thousands along with their her recent impressions of him. Maybe they're just really impressed with Jason Garrett the person they can't hire him no you can't hire again he's just can't do it that I mean the the backlash which is the two severe So this is the New York giants were talking talking about.

We're concept yeah so but federally we have no guarantee there but we are not absolutely and and i wanna point we now i mean let me i was explaining how this court is interpreting state constitutional law they they do admit right. This is directly from the opinion. The broad language of the free elections clause has not heretofore been extensively interpreted by pellet courts so in other words right right. This is somewhat new ground that this decision is is breaking <hes> and for that reason bright could get overturned at the appellate level <hes> they're they are conceding on this first point the free elections clause point that there's not a lot of law on it <hes> but but i will but i will tell you this the the underlying argument on this on the free elections clause is a pretty good argument right the idea idea is well that klaus has to mean something right and and so if it means anything right <hes> it means means that extreme partisan gerrymandering ken quoting from the decision redistricting plans that entrenched politicians in power that evidence a a fundamental distrust of voters by serving the self interest of political parties over the public good and that dilute and devalue votes of some citizens compared to others. There's is contrary to the fundamental right of north carolina citizens to have elections conducted freely and honestly to ascertain fairly and truthfully the will of the people. That's not a bad argument <hes> so well put too yeah so that's point one point. One is this violates violates a specific provisions that is in the north carolina constitution <hes> and it's in other state constitutions <hes> but not the federal before we get to point to why why don't we take a quick break and then we will find out what point to this cliffhanger opening arguments is brought to you by joi bird summer is the time under relax and enjoy the best in life and you can do it right from your own home whether you're throwing a backyard barbecue and ice cream.

"How can the north carolina court conclude that this is impermissible gerrymandering. The answer is the same way that the kansas state supreme court could find broader protections for the right to abortion under the kansas. It's a state constitution then in the u._s. Constitution so page two hundred two is where the legal analysis here begins. It starts off again. I'm gonna hit the high points <hes> it. It starts off by by noting that standing under north carolina law is is more broad than under federal law and then there's a lengthy discussion of rubio this <hes> begins begins a page to ninety eight paragraph nineteen and it says <hes> basically it says rubio's a terrible decision it says <hes> the supreme court noted all of these problems with blatant examples of partisanship driving districting decisions and that the congressional maps in that case were quote highly partisan by any measure and of quote and then kind of dryly it says nonetheless supreme court concluded in the majority opinion that partisan partisan gerrymandering claims and this is quoting from present political questions beyond the reach of the federal courts and then the attala cise federal and it gets that little citation that says has emphasis added and their arguments well. That's great and all <hes> you're not in federal court. You're in state court and we are free to note note that the north carolina state constitution offers more protections and is more expensive than the federal constitution so they located hated. Those protections in in three major areas andy a each of these. I think are really really interesting right so first north carolina china their their declaration of rights article one section ten of their state constitution has a free elections clause it says quote all elections shins shall be free and and the trial court here says the free elections clauses one of those clauses that makes the north carolina constitution more detailed and more specific specific than the federal constitution in the protection of the rights of its citizens <hes> the u._s. Constitution doesn't have a free elections clause although several other state constitutions russians do what does what does that mean exactly free. <hes> does that entail. That's the whole law. That's the whole wording is just the election is is free so yeah. Here's here's here's the way to think about this. The north carolina state constitution has a preamble right preamble but we the people of the state of north carolina <hes> for the preservation of the american union and the existence of our civil political and religious liberties you know there's a reference of being grateful to almighty god god whatever do for the more certain security thereof and for the government of the state or dane and establish this constitution and then article one is the declaration of rights so it's the north carolina equivalent of the federal bill of rights and like the federal bill of rights these are positions of principle right they they're short statements that say we ought to be self evident that all persons are created equal right all political powers vested in and derived from the people and all government of originates from the people is founded upon their will only is instituted solely for the good of the whole that was section to for example <hes> and so section ten just says it's called free elections and it says all elections shall be free what it means by free then gets interpreted rated bhai state case law in in the same way that what the first amendment reads when it says the freedom of the press shall not be bridge right what what freedom of the press means is defined by supreme court case law well similarly broad principles <hes> get explicatives it over time <hes> in state supreme court jurisprudence and the free elections provision it looks like is it is somewhat clear from from the history of north carolina jurisprudence <hes> that <hes> <hes> that that an individual can locate some right some affirmative right.

Tears immediately because I think of just the ball of confusion that I rolled into the studio as and here, she was calm, cool and collected telling me. What a gift she'd been given. Now. I'd never heard anybody talk about cancer as a gift usually it's talked about as a curse. But here's the way this amazing woman framed it. That because of her breast cancer diagnosis, she'd.
