Paul Richmond on GayBarchives
"So paul your introduction. To the gay bar scene was in columbus ohio for young man exploring his sexuality that must have been quite a memorable experience. What bar was it. And what was it like for you. Young man well. I grew up in a small town in central ohio. I did not even really know what the word gay meant. When i was growing up. I went to a catholic school. So my first introduction to the whole concept of homosexuality was in religion class and you can imagine the spin that they put on it not not a positive one so i grew up with a lot of shame like a lot of other gay people And it took me until. I was twenty one years old before i came out and i had just graduated from college and was really eager to find my community and that was before you know there were there. There were a whole lot of ways to connect online. the internet. i mean was there but it really wasn't. It wasn't what it is today so the way that you met people in the queer community was to to go out at night and i had a friend that took me to my first gay bar. Which was this kind of dive bar in. Downtown columbus called the the eagle think probably every every town has a eagle. So i've heard so many different people say they they went to the eagle and it was always in a different city. But we had our eagle and i just remember how cool it was to go in there Be around other people like myself to have the kind of music that i liked playing. That was a i. I'd always felt so strange when i was growing up. You know. I love listening to all all my favorite divas and nobody else that i knew had any of those same interests so i felt so weird in alone then suddenly i go into this bar. The little dive bar in downtown columbus and i found my people and i loved it.

They want the officer to be indicted from member station W. O s you Nick Evans reports just after 1 A.m. On December 22nd to Columbus Police officers responded to a non emergency call in Overland Drive. It's a nun, remarkable suburban street lined with quaint single family homes from the early 19 sixties. Neighborhood called police about an SUV repeatedly cranking up and shutting off. When he arrived, Officer Adam Coy saw Andre Hill walking from an SUV into an open garage, according to another officer on the scene, quite calmly asked Hilda Walk out. Body camera footage shows koi shooting Hill just seconds later and then coy and other officers failing to provide first aid asshole lay on the ground. According to documents released this week. Officers handcuffed Hill, who was unarmed. Columbus Mayor Andrew Ginther seemed stunned after seeing footage of the shooting. He was particularly unnerved by the officers who failed to render aid to Hill. We're literally no attempts to revive an aide. This man who had committed no crime was dying.

She wants to see him charged with murder. Whether he'll face criminal charges is now in the hands of state and federal investigators. The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation is looking into whether cause use of force was unlawful, and the U. S attorney is reviewing the case for potential civil rights charges. As for what should replace that early morning, call the 911 Hana Abdul Rahim says Part of the answer is residents asking directly if someone needs help before calling the police. She also wants local officials to set up alternatives. It's on the city to provide resource is to the community to have ways to contact. You know someone for a non emergency resource without some mental health crisis or whether that's you know, I am having a fight with my spouse. The police don't always have to come.

Fred rates fast growing trees
"Fred i saw an interesting list this week. And i and i wanted to run it by you because Just listening to you over the years. I know that you would have had a heart attack a few hurt. Somebody recommend this list but a gentleman wrote in too. I'm not even going to say what the specific website is. But it's a website that deals with trees and he wrote in and he said i have a patio faces west. I just built it but it was so hot this summer. I need some quick shade. Can you suggest some fast growing trees that we give me shade. And they made a list of twelve fast growing trees. But i think they just picked fast growing trees. They didn't really think about what is right. And what is not right for. Someone's lawn and i know that you agree or disagree with some of these trees. So i thought we'd go down through the list of fast growing shade trees and you could give me your opinion on them. I'd be happy to do that. Marquette and of course. I will have certain bias but the same time it's usually based on horticultural appropriateness. So let's go down through the list and see what happens. I'll try to avoid the heart attack for okay well. This is the time of year when people are thinking about this kind of thing because they know what happened this past summer they want get ready for it in the spring so the first fast growing shade tree. They recommended was quaking aspen. What do you think of that one If you're down. South eastern ohio in coal mine soy oils that are acidic and nasty and so on and near a pond for water. I'd say the quaking aspen. It's fine. I don't know of many in the central ohio area very very very matter of fact i only know of one home That that tree was used. It happens to be located in a spot. That was good for it and good for the property. So yeah one out of a thousand. That's that's my thought on the quaking. Aspen kind of wasting your money on that one. How about the northern catava. well no A friend of mine. who is now deceased. Half with a started inauguration that was directly opposed to the use of qatar place l. l. rest in peace but at the same time It's not a bad tree in in. I'm going to call it a back forty We as a kid. I called it an indian cigar tree. it's not all bad however many people even though the plant is beautiful in flower. It's as long as it's in somebody else's yard because when the pedals drop it makes one heck of a mess on the lawn I would say for limited use only now. The tree grows. Well here It just isn't one. That's up to par for the normal landscape so okay but took careful where you put it. As long as it's three three doors away in the neighborhood You're okay okay. I'm thinking those two nose so far the hackenbury tree. We're not heck. I mixed emotions about the native and the native is is a good tree. here Very sturdy very very big very very everything except that a couple of insect problems and then it's it's basic growth can be a little bit ordinary however the native tree and there are some cultivars coming along that i've been now somewhat time-tested so where when you're stuck for a sturdy tree that can handle the clay garbage that that ohio turns out in weatherwise on akber is okay with or or from the standpoint. Some of the new cultivars the native no because among other things it has a little insect problem. It doesn't hurt the tree but the insect is so small that can come through the normal house screens on the window and Most of sick and make the housewife pretty angry. So i would be careful with a native but at the same time i'm looking forward to it coming into the future As a a really well-chosen tree for our nasty soils okay. what about the Red sunset maple. Well i have mixed emotions on you I know that if it's on its own route and it's planted in the right place it's going to be okay and then the color i mean it's chosen for its color however it's a fairly fast growing three and I am somewhat opposed to the grafting of trees anymore. Now it's a good way for production. But i don't like it for the future health of the tree but as far as red sunset is concerned. I put on make okay list. But i wouldn't use it for a wealth for this gentleman's shade and fast growth. I wouldn't trust the tree to give me shade on the patio period of a longtime And from that west zone okay Well i'm about
"And welcome back to the show. Fred your plant of the week with a plan of the week. Marcus something that i saw and it might well. I've admired for years. Yeah when i see them here and then they're somewhat common down where my daughter lives in north carolina it is called or named southern magnolia. So they're magnolia is indeed in that family it has a beautiful white somewhat fragrant flower and so on but the thing that was remarkable about three weeks ago when i saw it anything else had well most of them had defoliated and i haven't been driving by a place where there was a southern magnolia standing. Oh fifteen eighteen feet tall. Probably ten or so white at that point man absolutely a magnificent deep dark green. I happened to be there when there was done. And it was on the tree in a manner such that they just the leaves just shined. Well i got my attention and then other things came up when we talked about other plants. But then i went back yesterday with his pretty white out to the beauty of that treat now i. It's one. I don't recommend very often. I'm one to speak of the care where you plan it. But one i saw the v. One i saw was standing on a bit of a hill. Oh he time. Eighty and it was facing south east and absolutely well. There's up against or or near a very large old brick home et cetera. So that the the plant where it was on the hill or near the hill was standing. where it was well drained. I'm quite comfortable. Those people properly placed it by digging a wide but shallow hole. Getting planted probably did a little bit of acidifying the soil and then whatever they did they must have added a lot of organic because the tweet was flourishing. It's one that i would not plant certainly not a street tree and i've even cautious where i put it on a property. But we've caution in selection Talk about magnificent beauty you that snow a few weeks ago and then Probably even right now on through many many winters it just absolutely outstanding when when you think of nothing much happening in the wintertime think southern magnolia and think magnificence with the leaves partly snow them partly without snow snow under the tree sunshine on. It doesn't get any prettier than that but again not not advised for just the average callous use of our heavy clays but that's still magnificently to think about and i know there's a particular variety that you like. Michael is it's one call brown betty now I think it's probably the only one nurseries would have to sell and at for use in this area. It is known to be hardy against our cold. I suppose there could be an extreme below minus twenty. They take it out here in central ohio but that is so exceedingly rare that it is an app to happen and therefore with with the reliability on nursery people picking plants that are apt to grow in this area. I would think they're going to be seeing a tag that says southern magnolia and then the variety called brand betty. So that's Let's just say that's probably what you would find in the garden center or nursery now if the if in general the southern magnolia doesn't do well in the heavy clay soils what what type of soil prep to get this ready for planting well. That's that's a darn good question. Mark and like i say dig a hole that is measured depth so that you're not putting it to deepen toward our claim then where i always recommend that the whole at least twice as wide as the ball of the plant i would even go out of. We'll call it four times white so it's a two football. I'd be looking at a bid that is bordering on eight feet wide just to be sure that prepared the soil. I've had a lot of organic I might even put some grits in the soil. But it'd be careful don't use Don't use crushed limestone. 'cause that's that's the ads are opposite of acidifying and Then i would be careful that. It's not in a lower wet spot period as i say the tree that i saw and admired so much in passing by was on the edge of a hill to where i'm sure it had good drainage so that we're the plant does need water. It's it's capable of handling the heat and drought of summer in north carolina. But then when you water it you soak the daylights out of it yet. Excess drains away in the tree goes on and becomes beautiful.

How Deep Does the Soil Have to Be in a Raised Bed Garden to Grow Tomatoes and Peppers?
"Says she's thinking about putting in a small raised bed small garden on her patio so she can grow a few tomatoes and peppers and she wants to know how deep the soil would have to be. Well that's a good question mark. I'm GonNa stay deep as possible is the best answer now. Let's try to qualify that My uncle and his reclining time go to Mehta's in a water. Water filled apparatus That was only. I think maybe eight inches deep at the very most now. Most people probably aren't going to go into that particular kind of thing so I would say eight inches would be the absolute minimum depth then going to best case scenario eighteen inches is better the whole point being that if if you want to stay with tomatoes and it Cetera they can be and can be productive in a relatively shallower area. She wants to plant any loan stuff carrots then she's got to get down toward that eighteen now to be let's just say as as general in terms of gardening as you can think of. I Have Lois dig down twelve inches or have ever higher young guy with a shovel but anyhow down twelve inches through through that dirt decide on a tarp or for that matter throw it out but I would be inclined to keep a bit big down to that Ten or twelve inch. Ruth range put in minimum two inches of gravel. Now this would be just plain Pulverized gravel if he could even be limestone best but it wasn't but it's okay Three inches is better than put some some landscape cloth over the top of that gravel. So that leaves her with a nine inch depth of actual soil. Now that can be when she's talking about digging or I'm thinking of her digging down. She wants to raise it if she wants to. Stay on top of the ground. Then I would say you're still dealing with what is going to be ten to twelve inches deep Bordered by Goodwood. Or what have you So that you can stay on top of the ground I know well Ash. Ritchie's has been on with me from time to time. Grew blueberries here in Central Ohio on limestone rock because he went into raised beds having been there and pick some of these various and enjoying them. Thoroughly I know that he was not more than twelve inches. Deep with those beds so either down and start. Grab on the bottom or it's still best to put down. Maybe an inch gravel on top of the cle- junk or whatever it is still used hardware cloth then build up the good soil on top of that within boundaries and borders or not Action did not have borders on his his very bad but So it tapered up on over but I think even in the very center of it His soil wouldn't have been much more twelve or fourteen inches deep. So I think that's the best leader recommend four Louis The better drainage you can create on in ground or above ground is best comes in with there being an interface between her new sales repaired. So she's GonNa make whatever And and hard rock junk
Interview With Bruce Vanderhoff, MD, MBA: Chief Medical Officer at OhioHealth About Coronavirus
"So I'd like to welcome me chief medical officer with Ohio health Dr Bruce Vander Hoff and Dr thank you for being on the mark blazer show I know you're very busy very pleased to be able to be here with you yeah it's fantastic that you've taken time to be on with it so everything that you're seeing and reading right now with regard to our we are we really close to hitting what they're calling the surge is is that something that you're seeing within the next whatever few days to a week yeah all the modeling that we've been doing here in the state really is pointing toward hitting our surge over the coming days now of course we're hopeful that that surge is as low as possible but I do think that we're going to begin moving into the peak season for our our who bid nineteen search sometime over the course of the next several days so from when you first began seeing the data for the corona virus and where it was projected to go and so on and where we're at now is it promising you know based on the comparison there and kind of the things that we're hearing kind of alluding to what you probably just heard me talking about with the governor during his press conference today and all of that your thoughts on that yeah it's very promising and I think the people of central Ohio and really people all across our state can be very very proud of all the sacrifices that we've made and although the hard work that collectively we put into one thing this curve it's it's had an impact you know modeling for epidemics is actually not something new for people in health care we've been modeling epidemics for a long time early estimates about what this virus could have done in our state we're really pointing to pretty frightening picture and I think collectively now we're all cautiously optimistic that while there are still going to be people in central Ohio who gets sick and they're still going to be serious illness for our health systems to deal with that we're looking at a much much better picture talking to chief medical officer with Ohio health Dr Bruce banner often with regard to the surge we were kind of just talking about that is projected to hit here soon how has Ohio health prepared for this well we've been preparing in a lot of ways of for a long time really dating all the way back to H. one N. one and then the concerns that have arisen around of the potential free ball walk to jump from Africa to other countries but when it became clear that this illness has the potential to spread from China to the United States we began thinking about well what were all the things we would need to do to be out that set ready to go so a few weeks ago we already had a command center up and running and from that command center we began looking at how would we need to change the care that we provide day in and day out how would we need to help support the community in new and different ways how is the house Ohio health been handling the PP shortages are you guys experiencing that I think that every healthcare organization in the country has had to contend with that you know the the supply of of PP medical supplies really it is a worldwide distribution chain and unfortunately this illness hit some of the sources of that world wide supply chain pretty severely so that by the time it got to us our usual sources had been really really badly impacted but you know Ohioans are really remarkable and certainly the team here at Ohio health I think it's been remarkable it really prompted us to innovate and so we innovated and a whole lot of ways some of which your your audiences are undoubtedly heard with we partnered with some local innovators like the tell and Patel helped us find new ways to continue using important things like our masks and so today we are recycling our masks and a very very safe and FDA approved way when we have many were very grateful to Patel for that but we've done other things up we we've worked with local companies to help us produce some of our P. P. P. companies that you know previously were were not in the business of making PPP and maybe even done other things like three D. printing a lot of the swabs now that we used to do the testing we can't get but but it's okay because we're three D. printing I I I'm with chief medical officer with Ohio health Dr Bruce Vander Hoff and I also read doctor that you know you guys are using this is incredible by the way the iPad to communicate with patients from say on like the other side of the glass in the I. vis with the longer to being set up so you know in the hallway the nurses can you know Dodge having to go into the room for somebody who's infected to change that kind of stuff is unbelievable to me that so really really cool and you know what's really the coolest thing about it is that these are innovations that were developed at the bed side by the folks who care for patients every day so when they were faced with the challenge of needing to decrease the traffic in and out of the room because we had real pressure on the availability of personal protective equipment they looked at it and said well you know I we can change how we how we care for patients but the caring for them in ways that didn't isolate the patient so while we're going in and out of the room less often because of some of the things you just described IV pumps outside the room we're also giving the patience I pads and now the doctors and nurses are able to interact with them often much more often than they were before because it's you know if you see a patient and then half an hour later have a thought want to ask them something you're on the other side of the hospital in the old days that might mean you got back around later in the afternoon now you get on your smartphone you connect to them on their iPad and it's a much better doctor patient nurse patient interaction that is really really it's fascinating corona viruses we know doctors changed you know how we approach medicine talk to me about telehealth I know that something that is kind of a newer term for some people and how it's becoming kind of the new norm right now well this this code nineteen experience really challenged our health care providers our our doctors our nurses to think about new ways to stay connected with patients in new ways to continue their vital care so some of that it's been through video and telephonic care and now our our primary care physicians are specialists are more and more having their visits with patients via video telephone I'll give you a great example my neighbor came over and asked me to help him with his I. phone because his very first visit with his specialist was going to be a videocassette this is the headphones yes we haven't set up in it and and he did very well with it but you know that's not something that would have happened is recently is three months ago give me another really neat example and that is we're doing more and more hospital at home care so patients in it in the past may have come to the hospital for something that required relatively short hospital stay but now because we're able to provide monitors special monitors in the home we're able to use these video visits supplemented by maybe once or twice a day nursing visits were caring for some conditions without the patient ever having to come into the hospital Dr venter offices Dave I was curious you know one point they were talking about forty to seventy percent of the population what would get corona virus do you and there's a thirty percent swing in there do you still see it in that regard is it just going to be that it's going to be spread out over more time do you think that percentage is going to drop any insight on that you know one of the challenges that we have is that but we really don't know how many people at this stage in the game have been infected with the corona virus but what we do know is that far more people have and miles for a symptomatic infection with us then we believe from the early data that was coming from China in a way that's a hopeful factors because if a lot more of our people have required the virus had the virus and yet really have very mild symptoms maybe a mild cold maybe little at all it it may point to there being more and you've heard this term herd immunity and we might have thought possible that that seventy percent number that you've heard referenced the recent people point to that number is that's right around the point when the community has enough immunity at at that it helps reduce the likelihood that more vulnerable patients will get the illness and be exposed to it in the general community so we don't know yet but we are hopeful that maybe there's more community in our community at the end of the spring season then at first we thought might have been possible chief medical officer with Ohio health Dr Bruce Vander Hoff thank you so much for coming out today and for everything you and your staff and everybody at Ohio health and the health community doing for us not only during this time but all the

Last year it was twenty five hundred volunteers and they provided over. Twenty eight thousand hours of service for us that's equivalent almost fourteen full time equivalents share. That's where you get. It's a volunteers are lifeblood and donations are lifeblood and so it's really We couldn't exist without the community and the generosity of this community so for someone out there with the Ganda gently used bed or some other household items and they would like to donate them. How do they do that? Yeah all they have to do.

Of course we get more but but yeah you can always feel free to bring things to us and save you. The fuel costs and the the everything helps out tremendously Steve. I know that You've been around more than twenty years where we were talking about that earlier And and it was as sort of a unique thing for central Ohio in the country when you take a look. The Furniture Bank was one of the unique organizations here for Central Ohio. Is it still a unique thing? Or have they sprung up another places around the good they have sprung up around the country There's now about eighty ninety furniture banks out there What is really unique about Columbus is that we are probably the third largest furniture bank in the country and We had some great corporates who support in our early years from a big lots and and several others that really allowed us to grow and serve more families and you know quite honestly big lot says Ben so instrumental in our star over the course of our twenty years. They've donated more than seven million dollars to us as good as ation. Which you know if you take that just that number that allowed us to serve over twenty eight thousand families in our community and so it's that kind of support that has really helped us grow as an organization to be able to meet the need and even then mark were not actually meeting the need in our community. I mean when you think about some of the challenges that we're facing like in twenty eighteen there were eighteen thousand fiction notices that went out. You know we have ten thousand people living in homeless shelters throughout the year. You look at the domestic violence calls. You look at kids in the child welfare system that are getting placed with grandparents who don't have beds and things for their kids. It's it's a fairly. It's a very significant problem in our and you know we're we're doing more than scratching the surface but but the need out there is greater than obviously our ability to provide Stevo.

"central ohio" Discussed on Columbus Concerns
"This is Columbus concerns a public affairs presentation of North American Broadcasting. Here's your host Mark News. And thanks so much for joining us this morning on Columbus concerns. Stevo toss here and he is the executive director of the Furniture Bank of Central Ohio. And Steve thanks for stopping by well. Thank you mark. It's a pleasure to be here with you this morning for those who've never heard of the furniture bank and it's going to be kind of tough because you guys have done a lot here in central. Ohio but to tell us What is the Furniture Bank? And what do you do? Oh great well. The Furniture Bank is obviously a nonprofit that tries to work with families who are coming out of poverty who've been evicted from their home or maybe of lost everything in a fire or may be going through domestic violence or homeless situation and so many times folks are starting over but they have absolutely no furniture and so our mission is really determined. Empty House into a home of hope so last year we we served over thirty three hundred families. We provided them basically with a house full of furniture and That equates about ten thousand people so You know in our community mark. A lot of folks don't realize that you know every night we have thousands of kids who were sleeping on a floor We don't think about a table and what it means to family. I mean we eat at the table. We have critical conversations. You know we do homework at the table. We play games at the table and things like that that we need to make a house a home and so that's our our mission is really to take that excess furniture. That's out there in the community and try to match it with families who have a need Before we go any further Steve Do you have a phone number and a website address. We certainly do our phone. Number is six one four to seven to nine five four and our website is furniture bank CEO H. Dot Org and we'd love to have you common Take a look at our website or obviously if you have any furniture if you happen to have bought a new couch recently or new table and chairs where new mattress really. We'd love you to think about us as someplace for that a piece that you no longer need where you located we. We are located at one. Eight South Yale Avenue. It's down in Franklin turn It's about ten blocks west of the former former amount Karma West Hospital and is that where folks bring their donations They can bring it to us there. Yes but the beauty of our services is we'll go out in the community and pick it up so nice every day We have three trucks out in the community Probably stopping at around sixty different Stops to pick up gently used furniture. And so it's a pretty cool model mark where last year we had over eight thousand people donate furniture to us. They donated altogether over sixty thousand pieces. Which is phenomenal phenomenal. And so we go out and and we can pick it up for you for free if you If you like. Are there any things you need more than other things? Yeah we quite honestly mark. We are always in need of mattresses Appliance Sofa as dressers kitchen tables and chairs though those are the big things and we always could use more of those yes and imagine if you were in poverty and you get a new bed or you're going to have to have sheets. I've I imagine you probably take the two We do that. Thank you for bringing that up. Absolutely we can take almost all your household items. I mean the thing to remember is that we're trying to make a house a home and so even things like art work towels pots and pans. Dishes are things that families need to get get started and so If we have a core piece of furniture like a sofa or a mattress We can then pick up other things and and so We've been able to even pick up things a occasionally like exercise equipment and things like that. We have a thrift store up on Morse road where we can sell some of those items that people no longer want that that You know have a second opportunity or for second life and we sell a small percentage of that and that actually allows us to further our mission at the furniture bank which is cool and I imagine you take donations. Oh absolutely cash donation. Well mark why we really have this really unique model. You know we get no government money. Okay it's all based on acts of kindness and so we have about eight thousand furniture. Donors like I said every year and then we have a woodshop where we can build our own furniture. We never get enough dressers or bed frame so we have a phenomenal relationship with solder in. North West Ohio. Oh were they donate their would to us which is used to build Kia product. They donate that would to us and then we have volunteers who help us build dressers and tables which is great. Last year we had about twenty five hundred. Volunteers walked through our door and actually helped us build or fix furniture which is really cool. Then we have about a thousand financial donors so it's kind of these ten thousand acts of kindness that come to the furniture plant that furniture bank and then we are in turn. Give that furniture out to families in need and it's thirty three hundred families last year or about ten thousand people so it's really a cool model. We're able to you know. Keep this furniture. Quite honestly a lot of it would win ended up in landfill so it's really a green effort as well. It's it's not as big of a part of our our mantra our mission but it is very true. I mean we throw away so much furniture in our country Last year I think it will I. I read somewhere where it was like over I WANNA say like a hundred million times now. Don't quote me on that but it was like an unbelievable number of Amount of furniture that we throw away into landfill and quite honestly. We have kids sleeping on the floor. Yeah I I mean we've got. I think a furniture is a way to help. Be a little more Conscientious about our environment as well as benefiting those families in need. Stevo toss here from the Furniture Bank of Central Ohio in their phone number six one four to seven to ninety five forty four and your website. It is furniture bank CEO H. Dot Org and before we I wanted to talk some more about How people get involved but you have an interesting event coming up eastern. Yes we do mark. Thanks so we have a bed race up at eastern in the Barnes and noble parking lot. It's going to be on. May Second Saturday morning. And it's a very fun event where we get someone We have teams register and they have to have some person ride the bed and then for people push the bed. We already have. The beds made their on wheels or folks can make their own and and we asked them to decorate it and wear costumes and how fine. So last year we had teams from the Flintstones we had star wars. But you know it's a great event and the proceeds really help us. You know provide furniture those families in need so we thought a bed race was kind of neat because it relates to furniture. And what we do. Yeah it's it's a lot of fun and so we really encourage folks to come out again. It's May second out at eastern in the Barnes and noble parking lot and we'll probably have forty to fifty teams. We'll have several hundred people there. It's going to be a lot of fun and they just go to your website or call to get involved. Actually you can go to our website. We have a link to the web. right there on our website where you can sign up and actually you can see some video from previous races and some of the different designs that folks have come up with their beds. But it's a great event for a great cause and and we really hope it kind of highlights. The need for mattresses and beds in our community for those kids who don't have a bed to call their own. What a fantastic thing for family or for Corporate Group. A team building effort they get their funds shirts on and then to get dressed up and they come out and do an event like an really help for a good cause it is i. It's it's fun and it's a helps the good guys and so that's the ideas tried to make it both for for Folks Steve. For someone listening. Who is in need of your services? Talk a little bit about who's eligible first of all. Yeah so I The WAY WE OPERATE IS WE PARTNER WITH NONPROFIT Partners as well as the faith based community so we do not really screen. We want To support those they're serving families and so all of our referrals come from either a nonprofit or a faith based organization and if they call us and say that for example John Smith needs you know fifteen pieces of furniture. He just says starting over We accept them but they have to really come in through a partner. Last year we worked with over seventy five different organizations that actually referred somebody to us for furniture. So it's pretty neat. It's pretty neat Tell me about the process. If is just like shopping. People come down and just just pick what. They actually great question. Yes they do. So we have what's called a point system and so every piece of furniture so many points and families come in and get to shop They get so many points that are approved by their partner by partner organization ahead of time and so they might get for example. Forty five points That's equivalent to about fifteen pieces of furniture and so they actually come to our our showroom or warehouse there and actually get to select the pieces of furniture that they want for their home. So it's really pretty cool. And they can get you know. Decorative items for their walls can get those Pots and pans and things like that as well. But the big thing of course is is the furniture and the beds and so they get to select it and then the beauty is. We delivered that very same day. Oh my so you know. We like to say that we can get you furniture faster than any furniture store out there. And that's a good point too because You know if you have nothing. You're not going to be able to deliver that star or pick that stuff up and take it yourself. That's correct and are feeling mark is that you know the sooner that we can get folks off the floor and into a mattress and a good night's sleep the better and when you're thinking about you know kids in school trying to learn it we really feel it's our responsibility to try to get that furniture to them as fast as we can and so we set our system up so that we can deliver it the same day which is pretty neat. Now you talked a little bit about The people that command and help repair the furniture put furniture together or build furniture in some cases What other types of volunteers and volunteer opportunities are there where the most popular obviously is the building furniture which is very very popular. And it's pretty cool. I mean we actually make you make. You can make a bed. You can make tables. We can make chairs we make dressers. It's really cool. And we take Corporate groups as well as a faith based groups. Whatever that come in. We have a volunteer manager that oversees that and so you can can call or reach out to. Us anytime at at Two seven two nine five four four number and ask for volunteer manager and we can set you up for something like that. We also have opportunities where you can help. Families select the furniture. We have volunteers that actually work and go through our warehouse select and then we have.

But we just recently released a drug called trae Kafka that is helping close to ninety percent of our patient population. So what's interesting about that? And what's wonderful to see is all of these fundraising efforts that we've done all of the events that Jen and I put on and all the ones that are across the country all filter into making things like that drug happen and that's really very special very special to our patients but the piece of that is trike. Afteh only affects about ninety percent. They're still ten percent of our population. That don't have anything that can help them and that's where we are still pushing instill fighting and still fundraising to make sure that those patients get the medicine that they need to be better. So that's where all the money goes it's going to. S- to help those families into eventually make cf Stanford cure found Jennifer. Tell us a little bit about For those who don't know.

That's a big endeavor that we have This year so that's been exciting. Were ramping up for our team advance. which is business planning that? We take a day out at the office and team building activities and all of the agents and operations team present. Their business plans twenty twenty so That's coming up on November sixth. And we're very excited about it So making sure all that comes together and really helping and supporting their agents to grow the existing ages to grow other business and new agents To really get started complete their on boarding and get up and running as quickly as possible. Most amazing that's it's amazing what Let's talk about first of all. We've got a ton of people here so if you're here Stephanie is all about questions right Stephanie. So you can actually answer questions But before we do that just let us know where you're at in the world just go ahead and type in I'm in Sacramento. Oh and it's like the beautiful California's seventy degrees outside right now. I'm in shorts. It's crazy about that. So just where you at Stephanie. You're lucky I'm in new Albany Ohio which is just out of outside of Columbus. We'll probably get up to maybe sixty today But it's been a a little chilly. Fall is definitely here. The leaks are changing and Yeah we're looking. I think we're looking forward to a hot summer which we were grateful for your missing the pool already but It's nice for it's a cool down and Hockey season football season. And all. That's in fact. We have a really really really great city to be a part of Sports and entertainment. Yeah Yeah Okay. Well thanks guys for putting in where you're at and what your the city is Stephanie's GonNa Answer some questions as we go down but real quick. I want to know a little bit about how your team is structured because when you're ranked in the top one hundred out of one point two million realtors. There's a lot of meat on that bone we gotta hear. What's the secret sauce in the team in like what's your structure and how do you run at every new and let's talk about that that piece of it okay? we have two quite service managers right now and and we're hoping to bring on a third one so their role is really to take the agents business from new listing to the closing housing table and support them throughout the journey. So our goal as because we're a team here is to really support the agents and take all the dollar productive activity off of their plate and the or non-dollar productive activity off their plate. And do it for them so they can be out doing what they do. Best Okay so are were were sales driven by we have operational Excellence and a lot of trust that goes into that too because agents agents come on board like they're nervous about asking someone else to do. This works for them but they it doesn't take long for them to catch John and realize the benefit to having the help so we had mark. Why didn't you yeah? Why did you bring that up? I is that a big differentiator for your team. mm-hmm it is for us. It is yes because not the big expense for say a solo agent To have an assistant that it's trained and able to do you all of the things that we do and so much it's so you know we have a virtual assistant with you that is awesome and hoax folks Our client service managers run their their day to day business. So whether that's data entry on calendar invite you you name it. And and she does it From the Philippines and we absolutely love her so she's a big Support Person for our client service manager. So they can return support the agents and the idea there is you guys have leveraged for your leverage. I mean your agents are out there driving revenue and your internal team. They're supporting man by taking away their non-dollar productive stuff virtual assistance allow your physical people to take vacations is I mean. That's a big deal. True it is. It's huge. I mean we. We don't know what we would do without her and It would be a lot more work and Were were at. We're grateful We're very grateful. So that Sorta the setup of our operations team we have a client service. Assistant that delivers signs. Are Lock. Boxes are brochures. You know making sure that all of that is done for the everything's ready to go Our agents take both listing work with listings. I am buyers at the same time So I know that's a little bit unique as well And and a lot of times the rainmaker does all of the listings. Which would be sandy? Sandy's gotten into more of a mentor role with the agents so she is passing the business Down to in partnering with our sales agent so they can learn and train and and you know be mentored by by the best So we have. I think we're up to twenty Twenty sales agents on the team. Now so it's It's incredible we just had some new people join us to get up to that number so were excited to have them on board and Take them through the on boarding process and See them selling homes sooner rather than later. Yeah yeah so it's interesting with twenty folks. Let's exclude the five new ones because we know the brand new but with agents how productive are they on an annual basis. And and and what I love about your team is sandy does really take a kind of mentor. Ship roles so all that businesses in their name. So let's talk about that. What what is the production? Well when Yeah when Sandy and I started and it was just the two of us Back in I think when we really started tracking our numbers because there were a couple couple years where I had no idea what I was doing I just started and her husband will come in every day like. Did you sell the house. I'm like no no not today but we're working on it So in two thousand when we sort of started really tracking our numbers The two of US did eleven million and worked with twenty two families so now now in two thousand eighteen we did one hundred fifty three million in sales volume and we helped three hundred and forty one families. So that's the yeah the kind the business that we're doing which is awesome. That's phenomenal. Why do you believe that? That's you know you guys have been able to scale your business from twenty two families over three hundred I. Let's break that down because that's the real and share it with the audience because this is the part that most people like when I interview folks I try to find the people who've Actually done it and you guys. Have you actually done it. So what what's what's your secret sauce there. I think that You know we have a like. I said all brag about them all day long at an incredible operations team. That are a lot of C- type personality so they're into the details You know running sandy. Go to a lot of conferences and they bring back a lot of ideas and things we should implement that we get to take the time to figure out. Okay is this does. The cost of this makes sense or four is what the agents were selling really true because sometimes things get Exaggerated a little bit. We've really taken time to the research and nail down the best systems the best processes and the best ways to grow your business so We have a sales huddle every Tuesday for sales agents where we can stay connected. It's thirty minutes. We do role play. We do live situations where you can ask questions We celebrate their win so new listings open houses in contracts and close. They get scratch off tickets when they take a new listing to celebrate that so we WanNa make make it fun because you can be hard and it's hard work so our goal is to make a fun on Wednesdays we have our sales meeting which is also so a big source of training? Sandy always has a training piece in air to Help people learn something new indoor. Remind them about something that we've taught in the past because you know you can hear the same message a lot but never really Wrap your head around it or understand it and it's just the hearing it at the right time makes all the difference so sure Our agents are very very hard working They're disappointed But they do have for the most part work life balance and I think that's important as well so they're committed hard working and then you get the support that they need in order to achieve the results that they get And as a as a company I mean we're we're in the process of rebranding and putting out some new materials and some exciting things. We're using a company out of Toronto. That's it's been Awesome so that's another exciting piece for them is is getting a new look and new materials that can represent them and that they can be proud of that we can be proud of the company. So that's awesome and then the secret saucer. Whatever I guess you would call it earlier? A secret sauce. What I'm talking about your director of operations because you guys urine a interesting role like Santa's the mentor? There's a director of operations and you're the president it. So how did you guys. How do you guys like cross collaborate but also can run the day to day? What's that look like Hey everybody.

"central ohio" Discussed on Columbus Concerns
"Again. You're listening to columbus. Concerns earns a public affairs presentation of north american broadcasting recently following the mass shooting in dayton governor dewine set forth some new proposals for background ground checks here in central ohio on gun sales. He talked about that in a recent press conference two days after the tragedy in dayton. We announced a seventeen point plan that we're calling strong ohio today lieutenant governor john houston. I are now seeing another piece of this plan. Criminal history information submitted to a house law enforcement automated automated system called leads and the national crime information center called. NCA is dangerously deficient. I was attorney general. I found that so far ohio courts were failing to follow the law requiring them to send dispositions and mental health adjudications to see i for entry into these law enforcement databases now. Let me just mention. One of the challenges says that they're fourteen thousand alshon shooting fourteen hundred entry points around the state we then immediately began working being with the noncompliant courts to get this critical information into these systems when critical information is missing bad things happen for example law enforcement could encounter subject suspect with a violent criminal history and not knowing school could unknowingly higher teacher with a criminal record and not knowing war federally licensed firearms. You're you're could unknowingly celadon someone with a disqualifying conviction because that conviction simply did not show up in the background ground chip law enforcement counter subject with violet criminal history and have no oh idea for example could pull over someone on the highway. The data was not in database when they walk officer walks up in that car officer would have no idea this could be a dangerous individual. This is what happened in texas in two two thousand seventeen. A man's disqualifying domestic violence conviction was not entered is background. Check came back clean. He he purchased a gun and then walk into a church and killed twenty six people that gun sale could have been prevented had the right information ben in his background. Check the submission of dispositions mental health. Judy -cations buy a house courts improve got better when i was attorney attorney general but they're not where they should be and now governor. I'm in a position where we can do a lot more examinations by uh-huh hios two hundred and eighteen national instant criminal background check system or and see ass necks that complies implies working group that was put together originally under governor casey as well as a mile high warrant task force both groups found that there are other serious flaws in the way ohio shears criminal justice information and that these must be addressed. Now's the time for us to and that's what i intend to do today. I'm announcing that as part of our forthcoming forthcoming strong ohio legislation that we are recommending to the general assembly we'll be taking action to enhance the state and federal background check systems unlikely requirement for the entry of dispositions and mental health adjudications into leads an NCI see there is currently amazingly. There's currently no lawn ohio requiring the entry of warrants for violent crimes and protection orders into the system say it again no longer require the entry of warrants for violent crimes and the protect nor for protection orders rush into this system makes absolutely no sense this again our law enforcement officers at risk each day it puts our citizens at risk and increases the chance of someone who shouldn't by gun will walk into a store and be able to buy one domestic violence and sexual assault into leads. NCCIC within forty eight hours of issuance. I think the average citizen ohio today would assume that that are already is required under ohio law this tier one warrant offense list was developed this year by members of mile warrant task ask for it was one of their recommendations. I formed this task force shortly after taking office to study the issue of unserved warrants in the state and again. I think these facts will shock. The average ohioan are working group estimated that they're at a bare minimum one half million when half a million five hundred thousand open warrants today in the state of ohio yet. Only two hundred seventeen thousand of those were entered into the state leads system in a vote. Those only eighteen thousand one hundred seventeen were entered into the federal system. What will happen what can happen is obvious us for this large number of these individuals. If someone is outside their county law enforcement. We'll have no idea when they run them that there's an outstanding warrant for their arrest and if someone leaves the state of ohio only a small portion of this half a million will show up in in any kind of shirts that has done by law enforcement only a little over eighteen thousand means that law enforcement officers one jurisdiction could pull over a wanted violent offender from another jurisdiction and have i've no idea that they were dangerous or there was an outstanding warrant for their arrest this is clearly safety issue for law enforcement and it's a safety the issue for the public and CIC is also one of the tools that the FBI uses when conducting point of sale background checks federally relicensing firearm dealers through nex. I think this shows why another reason why so important this information nations entered into both the federal and to the state systems as identified by the two thousand eighteen knicks working group point appointed by governor kasich warrant and protection orders must be entered into the state and national systems to improve the completeness of nex otherwise the next background checks of those prohibited from purchasing a firearm will come back clean. They will be inaccurate. Responsible gun shop owners do not want to sell a gun to someone who should not have one so when a dealer calls next for background shop they depend on that information and public depends on that information to be accurate and complete and one is not the system is failing ailing these business owners and certainly failing the public as well. We must act now to fix this problem mandating the entry of these wars and mandating the protection orders they must be report poured into leads an MCSE will certainly make more work for law enforcement and for the courts well. Let me be clear many agencies already doing this on their own the many or not today the process to enter this information takes time and it's cumbersome. The cost of implementation is often paid by the local government in fact it usually is both working groups. Both working groups that i've referenced also recommend a statewide system to make this process easier and more uniformly could be adopted. We have an obligation to make this easy simple for local government local little officials to do. We have an obligation for the stave to pay for this time to act is now. We must work to make this system work better. I've asked lieutenant governor houston who is the director of innovative ohio to be in work on creating rating technological solution he and innovate ohio involve program to make it easier and less time consuming to get warren protection or information mation where it needs to go and that's governor wind talking about his proposals to increase background checks for gun sales.

"GATT bags bags on a roll Now, they're damn red. Its go through real good gamma Massport vow fifty what you're traveler episode five hundred ninety five today, the amateur traveler talks about German settlers as zoo, a movie Palace, a science museum markets, and Ohio, State football as we go to Columbus and Central Ohio. Welcome to the amateur traveler, I'm your host, Chris Christenson. This is gonna be the second of five shows in a row on the United States. At the way these lined up. We did a number shows on remote destination, and now we're going to be going through a run of shoes on the United States. And just in time for this to come out on President's Day weekend. Is Ohio The home four seven different United States presidents. So let's talk about Ohio. I like to welcome to the show Matthew Kharachoi lo who's coming to talk to us about Columbus Ohio. Matthew, welcome to the show. Thanks for having me. I started say you're coming to us from Columbus, Ohio, which I think is also true. Yes, Yeah. Okay. And why Columbus I mean, I know Columbus isn't a very obvious choice for most people, but I think the two words that come to mind our variety and value a cup, There's a surprise variety of things to do both within the city and a power and a half to two our radius in any direction around the city, more things than you would think would be possible in a place like Ohio. And now If we go a to our radius from Columbus, have we pretty much had all of Ohio in a to a radius of almost yet Yeah, This is ending. Cleveland are little early on that up. I say two hours mostly to include feeder points. Okay, That's really the only outlying or an hour and a half is going to get you everything else. And we have talked somewhat about Ohio before nut Columbus, but if you're looking for other episodes, I know we'd done one on Northern Ohio. In fact, I think we covered Cedar point in that one, and then We've also talked to think about Cincinnati, and I think those are the two I can think about about Columbus People want to use this one is a companion episode with those. What do you recommend we do when we come to Columbus? Columbus is good for a couple of things. So if you're coming with a family, a big attraction is the Columbus soon aquarium, which is huge. It's much larger than most zoos. You probably been too. And it also has a waterpark So it is popular to do a two-day trip only for the zoo in the water park. Now do I do the water PERC with the animals from those who, unfortunately not that would be something wasn't it? That would be cool. Held at any of the animals. I suppose that this point and you say it's a big Zulu. But I think when you're pitching to meet, you said it is one of the largest twos in the US. It is one of the largest urban Xeres in the U S. It's also the number ones you in the country graded by USA, travel guide, and that I didn't know San Diego Zoo is the popular number one zero in the country. Any evidence to give you some idea. I believe San Diego Zoo was something like forty dollars a person which is a little steep. Columbus zoo is twenty dollars a person. And it's huge. So my favorite part of the zoo is all I mean, it's on nice by the newest section called heart of Africa. It's not one of those attractions where there's one enclosure with an animal than you move on to one enclosure with another animal. There is a vast Savannah OCA. It bumps up into this Woods edge in the actually built a hill and the very back to hide a development behind it. So it looks like your about in the middle of Africa. I even had a South. Friend come visit us last summer and she was kind of skeptical ago care. It looks like Africa and then she Cambridge Legwell Well about how it works. These animals come out of the woods and there fifty yards away, So it's really interesting the way they've developed the excellent. Anything else we want to say about what you should do or see at the zoo before we move onto your next attraction. The next most famous area properly is the polar frontier section, which is where the polar bears are going to be. And a year ago we had a famous polar bear cub will famous to Columbus anyway. We lovers zoo animals. We know them by name Nora, I think got some national attention because her mom did not raise her as she rejected her a birth. And so she was hand-reared by zookeepers issues. Adorable on She loved people and the polar bear exhibit is huge, and it's also set up for underwater Ewing. So the polar bears are swimming around. You can really be. Entries away from them as a swim or under them actually, which is kind of cool. There's two polar bear cubs. They're now actually three And they're also adorable there about a year old and there are a lot of fun to watch. Cool. Yes, That's probably the obvious attitude. Seats Excellent. What else should we do in Columbus church? So if we are operating on a one-week itinerary and the Central Ohio area, I would say if you're into animals in a water prior spend two days doing the KLA Masunzu busy Bay. That's the name of the Water Park. Do another two days just in town or in the neighborhoods who in what else there is offering the city. And then another two or three days for side-trips depending on what you like to do. The Crown we'll get into that later. We can stick to Columbus for now. Sounds good. I would start south and move by way north and the central city. So we'll start in German village though German village just south of downtown. And it's this very large historic village. That is at its brick roads. It was one of the first ethnic enclaves within the city by the Germans. Obviously, it's good for a stroll. It's good for stopping in a coffee shop or obviously there's some. Good German feud. There's also some other great restaurants. My favorite place to stop there is the book loft the building stock in his neighborhoods about one hundred seventy ears soul give or take. And the book loft as in one of those older buildings just every hallway, every room possible system after the brain with books, every John her you can think of. So it's good for just kinda wandering and getting lost in. Well it we should say you're a freelance writer, so the love for books comes naturally. Yes, yes, it does At right next door action is my favorite coffee. He plays in the city cod stocks, coffee cup, so grab a book store and then move over next door grabs from coffee and get hurt. It's you're eating as far as German food. There's kinda to places that pop out. So Schmitz is a local institution. They've been around for decades famous for their their sausages. And then actually my favorite is called Voltaire's very old world. You walk and there's a pretty simple. All but interesting beer selection, I've never had bad food there. It's a bit more low key instruments. Mitch, the kind of place he might go with A large group, And that's a little bit more whom PA head vaulters as a little bit more subdued. And so that's German village Good for walking around jostle Schiller Park in there. Going up north, you head into downtown. So in downtown, there's the State House. It doesn't have the Dome that you would think of when you think of state capital buildings nor the national capitals got a coup Belo's who looks a little unique. The offer free tours throughout the week. I believe every hour on the hour. For some part of the day. Now, it looks like a regular Capitol building, the summit's told the coupon. I'm yet really looks like it used to have a dome rude. They were planning a dome at some point. It's unusual that way. It is, Yes. Just across the street from the State House is the Ohio theater. It's this 1928 movie house that's in the '60s people have Columbus saved from demolition annnounced the home of know the symphony in kind of a lot of the performing arts. Visiting Broadway shows, that sort of thing. If you're coming in the summer, which is a great time to come to Columbus. The higher theater does a summer move. Be series old classic movies were the newest one they would show is Indiana Jones your or something like that. And it's as Otago to this very elegant Spanish style theater and see movies that when it was first opened us the way people saw movies assistance very big, elegant theater there. There's an Oregon someplace. He Oregon, the start off the movie, they might show some Looney Tunes cartoons start off yet. It's a lot of fun. So really a movie Palace here movie Palace said yes, Yeah. And you mentioned coming in the summer because of the best weather or best because more activities the summer is fine. Plenty war might be a little humid, but there's definitely has Hall or three every weekend. I mean it's it's chock full of things to do outdoor movies. Little Community festivals are big vessels on the river Jasaan ribs Fest. The Columbus arts festival. The food truck. Civil they take over the Riverside. So these are all things that you would want to do in the summer, and you see the Riverside But river runs through Columbus. Yes. So this is the Citre River, not a huge river OCA but there is park land along pretty much all of it when they're in downtown. There is a section of it called the silent a mile where there's some swinging shares. There is a twenty restaurant next to that are sung and a play fountains for kids to Welden. It has a whole schedule events on its own. It's a good place to be in the summer. Did you see swinging? Cheers. These are hanging from what some kind of placid contraption, not from trees or anything like that, Like swings, but their cheers not swings via the OCA got it. It's an audio showing all We'll have a picture of this By the time people see it, but I'd I don't have picture yet. So. Okay. Then across the river is COSI, which stands for the center of science and industry. So it's our Science Museum. It's also highly rated. As far Science Museum's go. They recently got a dinosaur gallery courtesy of the American Museum of Natural History's. That's a new permanent addition OCA which were excited about something Kouaoua sites. Maybe you're not coming with kids, maybe if it's adults-only once a month. I believe the second Thursday of every month is a program called COSI after dark where there is no kids allowed Adults Only at his alcohol and you get to enjoy the Science Museum without the burden of having kids wanting to do everything. cut without school groups. Overwhelming it. Great. And there's usually some kind of themes go along with it. In sports Star Wars, something like that. I went to a sports theme AIDS, and there was a big obstacle course. An inflatable obstacle course kid a there was like a forty yard dash just to see how slow you are compared to professional athletes. You do the dash and then you see what Zeke you'll Elliott ran, the forty are dash like up man shouldn't. There's no way, no way I could do that. Moving a little bit further north. So the north side of downtown, there is two neighborhoods right next to each other. There's the arena district, which is where Nationwide Arena is. That's where the Blue Jackets play. That's our NHL team. So hockey team for those who were not hockey fans. Blue Jackets is an Amish to Ohio's civil war histories. Ohio sent more troops to the Union Army than any other state and the Union. So the Blue Jackets, as referring to uniform in the arena, There is an old civil war style cannon. And whenever the Blue Jackets score, the cannon goes off in it Freaks up people that are ready for the cannon Unaware that the cannons going to go off. So that's fun. And then a couple blocks away from the arena is my favorite police ago in Columbus. It's the North markets old-style market indoors with a lot of really great places to eat. Great variety in anything you'd want to E is in there. You've got tied Vietnamese Indian. There's a popular started up that is now expanding extra. There's been a couple that have been incubated in the North market and expanded through the region. One of them being hot chicken takeover I believe it was on the Today Show one one of those morning shows is unique because allowed the people they hire are former prisoners suitable. That would have difficulty finding employment, otherwise Hyun-shik intake of gives of a chance at some gainful employment. And
