Ballot Drop Boxes Gain Popularity As An Alternative To In-Person And Mail-In Voting
"Worried about casting their ballots in person this November because of the pandemic. They are also worried that mail in ballots could be misplaced or delayed on alternative that is gaining popularity and also attracting controversy is drop boxes where voters can deposit their absentee ballots to be collected by election officials. NPR's Pam Fessler reports. A steady stream of voters in Detroit, Michigan last week approached a red, white and blue metal box right outside the city's main election office. The box looked a little like a high tech trash can or recycling bin. Instead, it was one of several 100 ballot drop boxes located across the state. More than a 1,000,000 Michigan voters decided to cast absentee ballots in the primary rather than go to the polls, But many like Elizabeth Dandridge didn't want account on the post office to deliver those ballots. I want to be sure that it was collected in the box. Sometimes the males delay I'm waiting on a package is what people have sent me over to weeks to go, and they haven't come. And it's a growing concern is the U. S. Prepares for a flood of absentee and mail in voting in November. Many election officials are encouraging voters to use Dropbox is instead to make sure their ballots don't arrive too late to be counted. That's already happened to tens of thousands of ballots this year. Connecticut's using 200 new drop boxes in tomorrow's primary. Secretary of State Denise Merrill admits the state was somewhat overwhelmed by a surgeon requests for mail in ballots and even a week ago, local election offices were still trying to fill those requests. There's a lot of confusion just the moment about when the ballots got mailed to whom When they're going to arrive. It's going to be very tight and the ballot boxes play an increasingly important role in all this, because you know you shave off 234 baby five days from when you mail a ballot. But the boxes are controversial. Ah, couple of Connecticut towns complained that having them outside available to voters, 24 7 isn't safe, even though many are protected with security cameras. The Republican National Committee and the Trump campaign have filed suit to block Pennsylvania from using such boxes in November, arguing they could increase the chances for fraud. Tennessee Secretary of State Trey Hargett recently told a Senate committee his state doesn't allow drop boxes for fear voters might be pressured on how to vote. If someone knows you've got an absentee ballot, they can say, Hey, I'll be glad to take that for you and drop that off for you. They can ask you what you build that balance out or they can not turn it all for you. We believe it's a great security measure Tohave, someone returning their own balance by the United States Postal Service Dropbox supporters dismiss such concerns is completely unfounded. They note that drop boxes have been used in some states for decades without problems. Kristen Clarke of the Lord's Committee for Civil Rights under Law told senators the boxes are unimportant and convenient option for voters a compliment the limited postal box offices that are available in communities and are just critical to providing access this season access for whom isn't clear. Researchers have found that drop box is Khun Boost turnout overall. But there's no evidence at least so far that one party benefits more than the other. Still, Larry Olsen of Laser Fab Company in Washington state that makes the boxes, says demand's definitely on the rise. I couple orders today, and he's confident their boxes are far more secure than the average mailbox, he says. There are multiple features to prevent tampering. The boxes are also made of steel and weigh about Â£600 they're bolted to the ground, So it's not really something anybody can move easily. In fact, he notes at an SUV plowed into one of them in Washington state last year. Both the box and contents. Survived. Pam Fessler NPR news

"I'm Tom Ackerman a lot going on in the sports world a lot of movement yesterday. Let's start with the one that got a lot of national attention, and that's college football. President Donald Trump joined Nebraska Republican Senator Ben Sass and a number of coaches. In the push to save the college football season. From a pandemic forced shut down. There was a lot happening yesterday, so a growing number of athletes also spoke out in support of saving this season. Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh got involved, he said, with Wolverines have shown players can be safe. After they returned to school, SAS wrote a letter to Big 10 school presidents and chancellors, saying that players like we will be safer with football than without because of the structure and discipline of football programs. All that said the Mountain West, a 12 team conference joined the Mid American Conference. And said they will not play any sports this fall. So the highest tier of NC a division one football now has two conferences that have bailed on the fall season and hoping to make a go of it in the spring, the mountain West with some big names Boise State Air Force San Diego State. Each of those were ranked At some point last year. The Big 10 was reportedly going that way. But a Big 10 spokesman said no votes on fall sports had been taken by its presidents and chancellors. As of Monday afternoon. What about the SEC? A big player in all of this there, Commissioner Greg sank he posted on Twitter. He doesn't know if college football can be played during the pandemic.

Will Big Ten be next conference to cancel its fall college football season?
"To what Was reported earlier today by Pete Family. Another mid American conference today. They've already canceled their false sports schedule. They say they're going to try to play college football in the spring. According to Pete Family. Big 10 presidents are meeting today they are considering or that what is on the table. Is that they would cancel football for the fall, impossibly moved to spring. Gordon. What we see from the Big 10 commissioner. There are reports out that he Courtesy of the Detroit Free Press. The Big 10 commissioner prefer spring college football season. Now let me break this down in a couple of different ways won a lot of people going to talk about covert. We are obsessed with covert. We're talking about Cove. It rightfully so in a lot of ways, That's something that we should take seriously. I have to remain cynical. I have to remain Questioning these type of things, because I think there's something else at hand here. And I'm not getting a lot of pushback on it. And I know that they bring up the spring schedule and I I hope it's about covert. I hope it's about health. I hope it's about the safety of people involved. I really do hope it's about that. I do. But I'm just not convinced it's all about that. I think that Yeah, they do care someone about it. Yes, sure. Absolutely. More. I think about this, the more I think that there is a turd on that punch bowl, and that turd was laid in there or around this time last week when the Pac 12 had their players have a list of demands. Even to the Pac 12 presidents. I got a bad feeling that that's part of this. You know, the big 10. Some of those players followed suit. I just thought it was really interesting that today I see a report. Courtesy of ESPN is well, a stadium that Big 10 players from the Ohio State University have said, Hey, we're good. We love the guidelines. We are ready to play. It happens today as the president's air about Teo me of the Big 10. Something doesn't seem right. Something seems a little off. So it makes me wonder about that type of thing. If this is about and I do think there's a percentage of it what it is. I'm not sure there. There is a concern about people. There's a concern about health and safety. And it will. Certainly I'm sure we'll get the people in here so they can. They're 22 year old athletes. They're they're healthy horses. They'd be perfectly fun. I know, man. I know more than likely. Yeah, they'd be perfectly fine. And we've been talking about it for a while. It takes is one even if it were one. I don't know if that were to happen, Hell. My gosh, This is an ugly conversation have but we have to have it is that there are guys who die of heatstroke every year. In high school and college football, and it keeps going And I would wonder even if a person were to die from this in college football. It would maybe keep going. But when we're talking about a list of demands from players where they want compensation, where they want equitable treatment. Wonder if that's a little bit too much for the university presidents. They think, Okay, we'll wait. Maybe we'll wait till spring.
NCGOP alleges corruption on Charlotte City Council, files ethics complaints
"Has filed ethics complaints against two City Council members. Dimple as Mira and James Smudgy Mitchell. And before we get everybody's reaction to this, Fox, 46 Charlotte's Rochelle are Metzger set it up pretty nicely, but I wanted to clear the Air. Charlotte City Councilman James Mitchell says he wants to clear the air about an ethics complaint filed by State Republicans, accusing the Democrat of using taxpayer money to visit Detroit sports facilities in November 2018 is the first time ever That that has been a test of my name and is truly follows. Mitchell says It was strictly an economic development trip to talk about a potential dome stadium for the Carolina Panthers and future facilities for Charlotte FC. But the complaint says Mitchell's former company stood to benefit from the trip. Bart Moloch was the stadium expert. I spent time with elected, efficient and instead of Detroit, Thomas Entertainment District. That was that true was about it, And so there was no way he benefited from politically no benefit from financially. That was me doing my work this chair of economic development commit. In a separate complaint, the state GOP accuses Democratic Councilwoman dimple as Meera of receiving campaign donations in exchange for a yes vote when re zoning issues came before the council in a statement. As Meera says, in part, these are active and traditional donors. Too many candidates. Most importantly, My vote can't be bought, and I have never received the endorsement of the prominent developer organizations. This is purely a racist, sexist and political attack, as Meera says the complaint is an attempt by Republicans to deflect attention away from concerns surrounding Republican Councilman Tark Bakari, whose company was given $1.5 million of city money for an advanced technology jobs program. That money has since been taken away to which dark Macari took to Twitter last night. And in a Siri's of tweets defended himself, he said, Among other things, if Councilwoman Dimple s marriage does not publicly retract this libelous statement and refrain from repeating this action in the future. I will be forced to take swift legal action. The Democrats took a cheap shot at the ethics of Tart Muk are very cheap shot the attorneys for the city Have basically cleared him of any wrongdoing. In fact, documents and videos of a previous meeting from weeks before showed that the Democratic Council members knew everything from committee meetings and even Complemented tart macari on his work. You wonder what the political rationale was when they all of a sudden voted. I think 9 to 1 to cancel a contract with dark, which he abstained from voting, by the way, which is by what the rules are now the GOP, I think, fired back and said, if you're going to take shots against AH, Republican, one of only two Republicans in the county. You might be living in a glass house. Well, Bret

Miami Marlins CEO Derek Jeter: COVID-19 Outbreak Happened Because Players ‘Let Their Guard Down’
"The cardinals of the latest team to suffer a corona virus outbreak resulting in their four game series in Detroit being postponed the I. of course, was the Marlins. Here's Derek jeeter their man in charge describing how his players behaved before all this happened. Oil. Down to on this particular trip was. Guys were around each other got relaxed in. Let Their guard down. There were getting together in groups. They weren't wear masks as as they should have been warned social distancing of the entire traveling party is responsible for not following. The Protocols has instructed that that includes staffs, players. Everyone is seen seen the impact. They've seen their teammates, you'd sick. As I bring the Jeff Passan and Jessica does in Jeeter did go on to say, I think this is important that he had seen as we all have people suggesting that when they were in Atlanta, maybe the guys went out to bars and clubs and all of that strongly refuted that notion he was saying, yes, they got lax in some of their protocols, but it wasn't like they were out there doing things that were like super erase. I just thought that was important to get in. That said Jeff, what does the League's response to the Marlins, and now the cardinals outbreaks tell us about what we should expect for the remainder of this season. Greenie tells us that Major. League Baseball is saying damn the torpedoes full speed ahead, we are going to play through outbreaks and we saw that with the marlins and we're seeing that now with the cardinals, seven players on the cardinals have covid nineteen six staff members as well. Those thirteen people have been sent back to Saint Louis Right now is the cardinals trying to figure out what exactly they are going to do. They played only five games, this season Greeny, and yet the fact that they're missing potentially at least another four games possibly another week of games on top of that. MLB says, okay. This is this is reality if we want to put a baseball season on traveling around the country in two thousand twenty and it is a reality that they are embracing in full because at this point, if there's going to be baseball Greenie they really don't have another choice Jessica. What do you think? I think that honestly, this is something that's going. We're going to see it again in another team I hate saying that, but you get one player and that's what jumps out to me. So much is now seen it with two teams in a week or one player has it, and then the next thing you know you blink and overnight five, six, seven players get it, and I think even talking with, Mike, Chill, the cardinals manager everyone realizing how quickly this can spread and that's something i. feel. Feel like we're gonNA see continued throughout the MLB

US entering 'different' phase of coronavirus outbreak
"Surpassed Britain as the country with the third highest Corona virus death toll on Friday. What happened across the United States we bring in Santonio, first news national correspondent Michael Bauer. So what did happen in the United States? We know that Dr Deborah Berke, the position overseeing the White House coronavirus response says. We entered a new phase here in this country, meaning that what we're looking at as Faras the pandemic goes is much different now than it was in March in April. That she says, is extraordinarily widespread that there because it was his belief that rural urban areas maybe someplace states and cities. Work socially distant enough from the rest of the country. This remote distance is going to keep us safe, not going to be an issue, she says. That's not happening anymore. We're in a place now where there is no corner of the country. That's safe enough from everything. So while we've been looking at Texas and Florida in Arizona and California for some time now, the Sunbelt states you're looking at over the past week period of time, the largest surge of infections happening in Alaska, Hawaii, Missouri, Montana and Oklahoma. So sort of all over the place. Some of those places way more distant from the rest of the country than others. And this is a clear indication that we're in a different level in a different phase right now, what's happening in this country. Now with that? Experts are also saying, Let's not forget we're about to possibly go back to school. We know that some colleges are going to be returning, and there's a concern that we major outbreaks in college towns, but also above and beyond that policy lab is this one group of Children's Hospital in Philadelphia that have been kind of showing models and pulling together models. They're looking at one right now that says As far as a likely spread over the next four weeks. Like who could be the next Texas who could be the next Florida? They're checking out some ominous trends that includes some really, really big cities like Baltimore in Chicago in Detroit, Philadelphia, ST Louis and Washington, Boston and New York. They're saying that they're keeping a close eye on those cities over the next four weeks because it looks like Some of these cases, air headed back those directions. Michael, are we getting a clear picture of exactly how many kids have tested positive for covert 19? It's what we're getting is because a lot of schools still haven't officially returned right. But we do know that some schools have gone back into session. And we know that at least in places like Indiana at one school district, where two kids tested positive and a teacher tested positive as well. They immediately day one shut down those squids at school district and went back to the At home learning process and doing things from a remote basis, and you're seeing those exact came some kind of situations all across the country. You're seeing them in Kentucky, you're seeing them and Utah. You're seeing them. Ah, hole across the country where kids are kind of starting to come back and then boom. There's this sort of exposure to on element of covert 19 in the classroom. My brother Isa teacher in Northern California he teaches high school students, and they just had two of their senior students test positive for covert 19 1 senior at another school in their district. And the school just for decided to shut things down until October. So my brother will be teaching from his classroom, But just on the computer to people who will be learning at home. So are we working on the honor system here? Our parents required by law to report if their child test positive. Uh, that's a great question. I don't know that they're required. I also don't know who's hiding that right now. I'm thinking that that's a good idea. I think you know the reality of the situation is school districts are asking and trying to figure out what it is that parents want to do and what the schools want to do from that point on there making decisions based upon that, But the minute you start talking about bringing a kid in who might be infected. And even though the symptoms aren't nearly as strong and kids or at least that's what the reports have been throughout what you've seen for adults and older people, they can still spread it, so they're still going to school. They can still pick it up and bring it home. And then they can spread it that way. So if you were looking to stop the spread period, it would seem likely the things they do. There is not put kids into a situation where it was worse back in March, but worse than where was back in March and trying to put them in and think that this is going to stop the spread. Meanwhile,

Than scenario you think we could get him and they called me and I was like he claimed the project and I was like, well, what's the car and then when he says the Broncos like Oh, there's this about this about this about it or not about it, and there's so there's so many and then for many like twists that scene like if I was going to do a story about a vehicle, it would be this one and especially now that it's one of the first SUV's and now that the. Taken over by issue vs seem like explaining this one thing might help. Yeah. So, this really kind of started out of wd. You're saying no. It started out of at an AD agency. I think you're talking about Travis right to try last name is. Good. Shots right. WHO WORKS FOR A BIG AD agency and there's a podcast company. Content with made up a bunch of Canadian who have been a CBC folks I kind of like the NPR of Canada and they decided to get into the podcast world using their storytelling skills in podcasting and I really admired Pacific content and the kind of work that they were doing and I just said mired. The Chutzpah to quit a job and try to create a whole new industry. We have good government jobs like public radio at. And the CBC I would note for our listeners there was an air quotes there. Yeah. Yes. My past nation with SUV's and car culture in general as well as how we were able to tell the story of Detroit the story of black America and the three of the auto industry sort of all at once and I think that they have in the freedom to do that makes it much more interesting. Yeah. That is interesting in the trailer for the podcast you. Say that the broncos rise. Fall and rebirth are a metaphor for the last fifty years in. America could you elaborate a little on that? Yeah. So when the Bronco get started, the idea of comes in the fifties when g is were coming home from the war, they love their jeeps right and if you drove a jeep that's pre nineteen, fifty five or whatever not a fun car I'm not an unnecessary thing that funny in general but that wasn't a fun car and. We had all of this vision all of this money, all of this expertise you know Ford is building the glass. South this time. The three car companies are. undisputably at the top of their game. They're the biggest companies on the globe. They have complete hegemony around the globe in America all those things, and we watch as the industry gets on the shore. As we see race and the problems that we know that happened to Detroit white flight, which helps fuel the you the craze we get to the nineties and then Oj, and and you're like, Oh, where we have this like, who are we? Where do we go and and right around the time that the Bronco is going away that's I. Think the same day the Bronco let's say in proximate time when the train station, the Detroit closes is also when the Bronco in production, he can see how These huge metaphors for black folks wrenches coming to Detroit get jobs. You know work on cars like the Bronco Man designed the Bronco or through the first rendering of the Bronco right you see that being tied in the auto industry being tied and what it means to be an African American and that's what I loved about our ability to do the story of Detroit. Which is the story of the auto industry and of America. That's what we did and I think that that is also drew because that's complex and that's just not good for story of IRA car. Let's talk about where a carpets and where the culture beats the economy and I think that that.
Seattle Mayor Believes Federal Deployments Are Part Of A Darker Political Goal
"Kinds of tensions in Seattle. Clashes between protesters and police turned violent last weekend, but Seattle's Democratic mayor, Jenny Durkin, told the Department of Homeland Security she did not want federal agents sent into her city. She later discovered a force was deployed and put on standby. Now they have left. Mayor Durkin spoke with our co host, Rachel Martin, about why she and other mayors feel these federal deployments. Part of a bigger, darker political goal. We have, like any other city. We have public safety challenges. But our public safety challenges have been made significantly worse by this president's actions in his words, the dinner in level of criminal activity. We're really deteriorated after the president started tweeting about it, and it was a subject to have Fox coverage every night. So we have seen and I've talked to mayors across the country the same thing when the president actually tweets, and it's not my words saying he's targeting death City is run by Democrats. He's openly admitted it and tweeted about it. Um And I think that that is really a chilling prospect of a president. United States, which is federal resource is for political purposes. The Department of Justice has said that there is an expansion happening right that all of this the deployment of federal agents to a variety of cities Now we're seeing Chicago Albuquerque, Kansas City now Milwaukee, Detroit, Cleveland. This is all part of so called Operation legend that this has to do with gun violence, quelling gun violence in these cities helping solve murders. This's the DOJ zone characteristic of what this operation is about. I guess I'm hoping you can clarify for me. Is this operation legend something that's happening? Adjacent, separate from from the agents that had been deployed to Portland. And for a couple of days, at least this standby force to Seattle. I actually think they're using it as camouflage. There are ongoing task force in major cities, the deal with gun violence and with gang violence and other violent crime. We had him in Seattle and I worked on him is U. S attorney I know I've spoken with the mayor of Chicago and Albuquerque, and they have a strong collaborative approach with federal law enforcement. It is very rare. If it all federal law enforcement will surge agents to a city to deal with public safety threats that are normally handled by city or state officials. Without talking to or working with local officials. You have described what President Trump is doing as being a political ploy to play his own base ahead of the election into some kind of law and order message. As as a former U. S attorney for the Western District of Washington is anything he's doing or the federal government at his behest illegal. I think it could be unconstitutional. Under the 11th Amendment. Remember, public safety is generally reserved to the states and to their cities, a subdivision of the states by our Constitution. There's also restrictions on the powers that federal law enforcement have and what they can enforce. They generally cannot room the streets of a city in enforce city or state law. But the other thing I will say, though it is unprecedented for federal authorities to take this level of approach for local jurisdictions in cities and Serge Federal resource is in them to take over public safety duties like arresting people. Police protesters. And I've said it before. I know some people think it's it sounds overdramatic, but to me, it looks like a dry run for martial law. And if we see these kinds of federal agents put into places where there's voting right concerns I'm very concerned about what it could do to suppress the vote in America. Say more about that. You're worried that in places where there might be concerns about whether or not people get access to the polls, right? I mean, if you look at it now, the places that that they're sending these Federal agents are primarily in places where there are significant protests against police violence and for racial equity. And it doesn't take much of a lead to also used those agents to say You're protecting the poles but have federal agents in and around polling places, too. Spite against fraud when really a suppression? I think we need a very clear commitment in advance of the election that general law enforcement are not going to be used as some kind of super police. In key battleground states in around you places. You've been talking with different mayor's around the country. Your counterparts in different states. Is that the kind of thing that has come up in conversation with them it has come up. I will tell you were focused day to day on dealing with the crisis in our city. But this kind of action when we feel happening in so many cities across your country, it gives all of us a grave concern is where it is. Jenny Durkan is the mayor of Seattle. We appreciate your time. Thank you for having me

"Free way to do us. A major solid and I'll pull lincoln the show notes. Over the course of the week we've been following the developments around president trump possibly sending federal agents to Detroit well turns out in the next three weeks. It looks like he is as we reported yesterday. They won't necessarily be Department of Homeland Security Personnel, but we have learned that it will be part of operation legend part of president. Trump's move to insert federal agents in Liberal Democrat lead cities under the cover of responding to violence. The trump administration had. Had already confirmed that plan to send federal troops to Chicago and Albuquerque, but according to the daily summary of updates of from the president over the next three weeks the justice. Department plans to expand the initiative to Cleveland Milwaukee and Detroit now. The real question is what are city officials and the State of Michigan going to do around this. If anything beyond issuing a strong statement, that is a good question. We posted a link to a story I forget. Forget what city it is, but the prosecutor there said he was essentially ready to start handing out indictments to federal troops I. Believe Was Philadelphia Philadelphia Yeah for coming in against. You know that cities offers I mean there. There are no laws or constitutional provision really like spelling this out. We are in uncharted territory here. If my memory serves here I worry that this risks essentially putting gasoline on a very low grade fire here in Detroit and I. I mean low-grade fire. Things have been largely peaceful with the protest here since the very early days, and I mean mayor Duggan and James Craig the Detroit police chief of acknowledged as much right, they have said we do not need help here sending in these federal troops and again to recap this. Has I rolled out in Portland Oregon these are heavily armed camouflaged federal troops that have no markings. No named tags, no badging identifying what department there from. Who are essentially coming snatching people off the streets. Throwing them into unmarked vehicles, and whisking them away to who knows where like this is scary times and I fear that it's going to really escalate things here in Detroit. Detroit city councilman Gabe Leland is expected to plead guilty to federal misconduct charges and leave his office. That's according to m. l. l., Rick over at the free jared. This must mean that they finally got the goods on Mr Leland. The charging document was changed on Wednesday to say that Leland allegedly quote accepted a campaign contribution of seventy five hundred dollars in cash in violation of Michigan Law. So, if you remember that was tied to the controversial collision shop owner by the name of Bob Karnak Detroit's city charter says that an elected official who engages inefficient misconduct, corrupt conduct in office or pleads to or is convicted of a felony while holding office must forfeit their office. The other charges would be dropped. These are federal charges and maximum charge if he takes this deal in the state, court is. Of what he would have been subjected to in the federal charges, so he would serve now a maximum of five years in prison but Jerry. I think we all know that he won't get valley no way. You know this is a sad stories fan. As his father Burton Leland was a very well respected leader in the community. This is a guy who I think. A lot of people wanted to do well. It's another story of like people get close to that temptation that money and they just can't seem to keep their positive. It also mentioned here so much of Detroit. Bribery is such small ball. Seventy five hundred dollars sausages suit all that kind of stuff, and it just goes to show just like how broke. This town is if like seventy five hundred dollars can get you over the top in this place. It was apparently agreed upon the fifteen thousand altogether, but. Also continuing a long line of corruption on the Detroit. City Council that really needs to be rooted out and put to an end. Monica conyers most recently just bad and I hope we. We can just move past this quickly. All right this next segment. WE'RE GOING TO CALL OH warren. There are a couple developments up there in mccomb county's largest city that we want to talk about first off McCone county prosecutors after weeks of waiting have decided to change their mind and are charging that Amazon delivery driver who was pulled over for parking on the wrong side of the road a few weeks ago. The driver twenty-three-year-old detroiter Jalen bond is charged with refusing to obey lawful order or direction by police officer and. A motor vehicle without carrying a driver's license, says the mccomb daily prosecutors site new evidence, but have not shared it with the press you know spend. There was a ton of uproar when this happened. Really seems like Warren is reversing the course and I'm just GONNA say here. This just feels shaky to me. Warren has such a long history of racial strife along with a lot of Metro Detroit. That has a lot of division and Warren is dealing with a lot of internal division with a south. South of Warren that's quickly turning more and more African American and North of Warren North of 696, staying white, staying conservative. It's really a divided city at this point, and it's something that we need to watch. My own personal experience to as somebody is a driver with Detroit place I've been pulled over more than a couple times in Warrenton and all of a sudden mysteriously. They don't go ahead and check my anything like Oh Sarah. There isn't there's no problem. Yeah, it's just chew squeegee Yeah and And don't forget that The city's Mayor Jim fouts originally came out and put a statement out on facebook, saying that this was an outrageous thing that the police officers did and in harassing this. You know Black Amazon. Delivery driver, which is and then he reversed course at the urging of the Police Commissioner William. Dwyer. Who are next of kin is that there was a shooting at a celebration. In Warren. There were more than one hundred people gathered four people wounded in the shooting police commissioner Dwyer. Dwyer in a comment according to the free press, said quote, because there is no support from local officials such as mayors and governors, crime is out of control. They are not supporting their law enforcement people, and for those of us who have been in law enforcement. You're not going to see young people wanting to be public safety officers and quote. He did also go on and say that like Warren's not really having that much of a problem. I think he's commenting more on national trends, but Scratch beneath the surface and you're starting to see that You know this aging suburb. is kind of chafing under. It's changing demographics and the scenes that it seeing play out across the country. Man I don't know jared. Warren is what the third largest city in the in the state. Yet something like that, I think it's north of one hundred thousand people. I'll just out here that this is. Something, that the President I think would say seems to be very in line moving on. There's been a lot of controversy around schools and the corona virus. It is clear that the Michigan legislature with its power around funding schools is intent on tying the hands of local officials. Passions are running high in the community as twenty protesters were arrested on Thursday when they tried to block Detroit school buses with their vehicles, Doctor Nikolai.

"About voter fraud and laws that have popped up around the country to supposedly rooted out is really. They're really solutions. In search of a problem there is no evidence of wide-scale voter fraud in this country It is true that poor people tend to vote democratic So you know. Republicans are right. I can see that but Republicans like voting by mail to its proved popular among right leaning voters and president. Donald Trump has criticized voting by mail. And he's even said candidly like in public that that this will benefit Democratic voters in hurt publicans but he also has a record of voting by mail himself. So you know it's it's just such a non-issue that I think a lot of people are really to kind of move past president. Donald Trump is expected to visit Ford Motor Company's Rawson Ville Assembly plant near ABS. Lanny on Thursday. The plan is we're making ventilators for the federal government at the plant using paid volunteer. Uaw employees since last month but then Apparently there is a conflict around a personal protection protocol sir. That's right Mark Marquette reporter at the Oakland Press Tweeted earlier today as we record this that. The president has been briefed on Ford's policy regarding workplace safety measures in which include wearing a mask But they basically said that you know whatever the president chooses to do is up to him and Vice President Mike Pence made headlines when he visited a hospital and was shown. Not Wearing a mask is the only one in the entire entourage and all the photographs that emerged from that visit who was not wearing a protective facemask setting aside politics. I think it's about respect for where you're going. If the policy of place is where facemask where facing where facemask until which point you're GonNa do your speech or whatever and you put back on. I don't know what's that hard about this. I also. I am just disturbed by persons my personal opinion. I'm just disturbed by the fact. That face masks have become a political football. None of this ever make sense anymore and I feel like I'm living in a fun house on like literally every time we do this show or anything revolving around this. I think on a bad trip yet. Let's talk about poop now. You know it turns out you can learn a lot by looking at. What's in your Sewer System Ger? I'm going to speak for a lot of our listeners. I think and say thank you for ruining my breakfast. Well you're welcomes fan but I get it and it may sound gross at first. Let's be honest. It does but new data from a collaboration between Michigan State University. The Great Lakes Water Authority and the Detroit Water and Sewage Department shows that you may be able to predict covid nineteen outbreaks between one and two weeks ahead of time by looking at untreated sewage with additional funding as part of a two year grant from the Great Lakes Water Authority Michigan State and the Detroit Water and sewage department are looking to refine the process and work on short medium and long term disease threats and expand what they can look for which I think this is really interesting from an epidemiological point of view. I just it's kind of fascinating too. I WANNA see that map. Oakland County on Tuesday said it will set aside thirty million dollars from its allocation of federal cares act funds for local cities townships and villages affected by the coronavirus pandemic. The money could be used to cover expenses including public safety personal protective equipment and establishing safety protocols to safely reopen the plan is to distribute funds to each municipality in proportion to its population with a cap once the board of Commissioners gives its approval each recipient community would have to verify that this expenses meet the guidelines established by the federal government for the pandemic stimulus funds. First round of funds expected to go out by the end of June followed by two additional rounds later on a controversial contract to do covid nineteen tracing has gone to Dan Gilbert's rock connections. The million dollar call center deal includes a text messaging component and we'll also have the consulting firm Deloitte involved. Contact tracing identifies people who've been in contact with a person who's been confirmed to have the corona virus it then notifies those people they should quarantine to stop spread of the virus and check themselves for symptoms. The contract from the State Department of Health and Human Services originally went to grand rapids based Great Lakes community engagement. The company is tied to a prominent Democratic Party consultant. Who was used on Governor? Whitman election campaign. The contract was cancelled after objections. From Republicans for her part Whitmer said in a press conference last month that quote. The correct process was not followed unquote when awarding the work which was done through a subcontractor now to groceries and food one of the more successful markets in the city of Detroit is Honeybee La. Nina I've been shopping there for years. But what they're doing with their workers to help deal with current a virus pandemic. It's really interesting. Where major chains like Kroger and others have been doing what they call hero bonuses that are temporary and then taken away honeybee located just behind Michigan? Central Station is shutting down for a week starting Monday and what they're doing is paying their employees during that time so that they can take a real break. Honeybee has been seeing an influx of customers. And of course. The stress of dealing with shoppers and the virus takes toll on workers. They're apparently doing fifty and sixty hour work weeks to keep up with everything. The closure starts on Monday may twenty fifth and run through Sunday. May thirty first will say as a personal note there. Guacamole SALSA and chips are amazing and they keep their produce section in top shape. I will be stocking up.

"I assumed how you kind of adapted your your mission at both in terms of ministry and and things like your food pantry program and everything in the wake of this yes so our whole model of our church has been reaching the city nation world for Jesus Christ and so ever since the storefront church when my father Bishop found at the Church for forty years ago he's been on the radio is on TV and he started early in the storefront church in ever since the beginning so we've always been a church to use the platforms of media in order to outreach to our community so we've been using facebook live in our network basically to give people the necessary information that they need during this time connect them to different various organizations and groups that that they could help them out and then also our emergency food pantry has been running every single day so just to make sure that there's a need out there that were able to meet that need during the community so obviously were part of the united way to a one number so they call us if people are in our area inside of our community that need emergency food assistance where they're helpful. There's just so much to cover one of the things I wanted to start with is how much of a challenge has been that misinformation and dealing with the things in the community. Because I've seen a lot online. I've seen a lot of conversations. What does that look like on the ground for you Well it looks like on the ground for us is. We're still seeing a couple of people still not within the community still not really getting the necessary information whether or not it should be at home whether or not they should still be going to people's houses whether or not they should be limiting much of going out as possible and only outside the essential stuff as you can see. I'm here at home. We got our whole full production setup here lower able to go live in so we've been trying to just tell people as much as possible within the community. Let's ride this one out The stay positive. Let's have the let the essential people who need to be out there. Let them do that. If you haven't essential need go ahead and take care of that but you know. Get back home. Reverend Merit the situation in the city is is really kind of stark right. Now right I mean Detroit at last count. Most recent data has more than five thousand confirmed cases. That's almost half of the total number in all of Michigan which is really astounding and it had one hundred ninety three deaths. You know the really remarkable thing. Obviously Detroit is Majority African American right eighty percent. Black people make up thirty three percent of all overall cases in Michigan and forty one percent of deaths. You know despite being only about thirteen percent of the state's population I mean what? What do you make this? This is really alarming data. Yes I think it goes back to. There's already been many different pandemics in terms of African Americans health and really deciding whether or not they should continue to go to a doctor. Obviously throughout history there's been some mistrust there about treat maiden and back in the day and so I think is important for our any community to realize that this is real and to get help when needed and I think moving forward is important that we understand that we have to take care of our bodies. Do you look at it from the cancer perspective. I think they broke down the other day. Are this morning. I saw from cancer diabetes to all these different free existing conditions that these African American people have had that have ended up in death. In this situation it goes launched the misinformation that some people had that African Americans can even get this disease and so people ride that out and believe it and then all of a sudden you know this person being passing away in this person family. Another person's pass away another family. Say Oh my God. This is real. I need to stay home and it doesn't really hit home until it hits your family but you know. Our prayers are with the community on. We're just trying to work with the city work with the state work with the local officials in helping out as much as possible. When you say that African Americans have already had pandemics. What what do you mean by that? Exactly what I mean. Is that just in terms of our health in terms of making sure we're taking care of our health and then not being able to get proper care not being able to get health care that is needed and being a part of early detection and prevention methods of after reaction methods and I think that's one of the things that has hurt our community but a goals from a lot of pandemics hill for many many for a couple of generations that has kind of hurt that in the African American community. Doesn't this kind of bear. Some of the inequity in the healthcare system right now I mean I. I wouldn't disagree with that at all. Have any of your prisoners had corona virus? Have they come down with the virus here so we have a couple of very very few people who had come down with it? Some remain hospitalized. But they're all allow recovering. Saint doubt so. We're very thankful to God that it all we haven't seen one person passed away inside of our our fellowship. Now we've had people's are I have family members that have passed away but as of right now zero people have passed away from the buyers. That's good in some are back to work already. So it's it's definitely glad to see that that that happened. And that's what we pray for. I mean we we. We've been praying since this thing happened. That guy will protect our people. So so what? Does outreach look like for you now because I mean you guys have buildings and facilities. But you're in your house right now. So what does that look like? And how effective is that being for you? So we have one of the biggest buildings in the truth. I mean it's gotTa be you know top twenty five size buildings in the city Detroit and so to have a building of our size when only being utilized very little right now. But it's okay because I believe we weren't trained up to just come into a building. Always Triangle are people that were community. Whether or not. We're here or whether or not we're not there so I think we're really starting to see the the grit of the Detroit Community of of the love that really is shared amongst our people and they just love each other. So they're expressing that love and calls and zoom doing zone calls. Were obviously on our network in doing as much as possible to stay connected. During this time I think everybody in the United States and across the world are having to get to the situation in their outreach efforts whether or not you know you guys are working from where you're working at and not being able to be at a coffee shop or not being able to do the things that we normally do on a daily basis. We're trying to think outside the box and say how can we still deliver what we are and who we are to our people even during this time so going live every single day at eleven o'clock has been great as our people are able to get on there and see who's on there and say. Hey you know. Just tell people that they love them and so it's really really good. Do you see maybe even in the near term or longer term when it comes to ministry. I think it's making people will stretch themselves and be more creative. You know for us. It's always been about our network which help us know re- city nation world and saw that has helped us have that mindset for a long long time now we weren't totally prepared to move everything off side. Obviously but you know. We're doing the best that we can. I think all you can access organizations in churches businesses. Do the best that you can for people and try to stay there for your employees in for your customers or or whoever it is and really. I think now's the time that you really see what companies are really about at the same time you guys are just one church one organization right. I mean there's only so much that any one nurse in one organization can do and you know this problem of you. Know Corona virus susceptibility among the black community. It's not even just limited to Detroit you know you're seeing hotspots and in places like Oak Park and Southfield and and Pontiac and things like that. What kinds of things would would you like to see done or I mean? Do you have ideas for things that that could be done to try to? You know counter all that misinformation you talked about. I think the different organizations local officials are trying to get the message out. But it's just like anything in life people have to have to grab a whole to it. I mean I can't make you believe something. I try to put information out there through areas different mediums. Which I believe they're trying they're going through different routes whether it's online whether it's radio weather's TV trying to get a message out of of how to stay safe during the situation but then again I still can't force people and I think people are also getting cabin fever's will of being holed up in a home when you're not used to you know some people are realizing if they're married. Hey I gotta I gotTA Like I saw one being as it does. She likes the Color Green. I didn't know that. Oh She's Nice but you know. I think that during this time is very important that we just hone in keep generation safe because is very important for us to come out of this. I believe we will come out of it. I just think that people sometimes have to hunker down and realize they don't know it all and let the people who are there to help them out. So you're also very involved with the narrow cafe over on Livernois Avenue. I remember. We talked last year about streetscape improvement and the challenge that brought and then the benefits. Now you got another one here you go. How are things going over there? Just for context people in case they don't know narrow way cafe is on liver annoy between seven and eight mile. Amazing Service like you guys have really done something very Professional there how this impacted things. How is that transition been for the small business? And how did you deal with it over? Time as what we knew shifted in what became known shifted. So it's interesting that you ask that. So last year we dealt with streetscape. We're basically the whole street was basically torn up.

A new study shows sexually transmitted diseases or STD's are on the rise among senior citizens both nationally and here in Michigan the Senior List Dot Com compile data from the Centers for Disease Control and although Michigan Fares better than many other states the rate of STD's spreading among those fifty. Five years. Old and up is much higher than other age groups in Michigan. There's been an eighty seven percent increase in. Std's among senior citizens over the last five years. The state ranks thirty eighth with about forty six infections per one hundred thousand people however don't let that low ranking fool you in Michigan among older adults. There's been a nearly eighty six percent increase in HIV more than double the cases of eighty nine percent increase in gonorrhea and a twenty percent increase in syphilis. In general experts. Say That people have older age? Do not take the same precautions. Younger folks mostly due to a lack of sex education when younger and less concern about. Std's in general the top four older adult STD's states or territories are Washington DC. New York Maryland and Florida as my dad told me when I was in high school. He got the clap three times. So be careful out there sage advice. Cheyenne very sage. Who knew it would be for people? Your Dad's age. I know right.

So many F- so many fs he's here for a screening of a movie he started. Grosse Pointe Blank. The event will be at the Masonic Cathedral C. Order and there will be an audience. Cuna after the film is shown. It's a film near and dear to my heart as it was about an assassin. Who's on a job in his hometown? Of Grosse Pointe and I was living there in one thousand nine hundred seven when it came out however I note at the time that the school and some of the area businesses didn't like the idea of the movie and I personally think it would have been so much better if more of it were shot in actual community go. There was a good one scene right. Oh yeah the opening scene of him driving down lakeshore is one of my all time favorites. I wonder how similar would look today. I bet it will look pretty similar. I think so. I mean there are some of the bigger houses that are no longer there but I used to watch that scene when I was feeling really homesick and I lived far away from town when you were in Vegas. Yes yeah yeah. So when our tickets going on for this thing so tickets go on sale this Friday at ten. Am and will set you. Back between forty and seventy bucks.

It's a coffee shop and cocktail bar opening march fifth and I talked with that theme Murdoch and I am the CO owner at the congregation. It's an old church Rosa Parks and Atkinson near Detroit's Boston Edison neighborhood. Let me paint a picture for you. We are in an old church Near Rosa Parks and Clermont in the city of Detroit. And I mean we're gonNA SHARE PICTURES DAILY DETROIT DOT COM but it is absolutely gorgeous and I wanted to talk to betsy here about really the story in the process of putting this place together. It's called the congregation Betsy first off. Welcome to daily Detroit. Thank you so much. I'm excited to hear. How did you guys find this place? So my cell phone business partners all live in Boston And we came up with the idea of something that we all need it in this neighborhood. And Food and beverage was the number one thing and then Miraculously the church became available. So we were like what better than starting a business in our community with an old church. We talked a little bit before We started recording. It's quite the process to put this together. You were saying that. It took a lot more in planning and development than it didn't actual construction. Can you talk about that a little bit? Sure so the building we've acquired we had it for about three and a half years now. Most of that process was going through rezoning and some property tax items and then construction didn't even kick off officially until the end of summer of two thousand nineteen so the construction portion is actually the shortest Cinta the whole process. And now we're here and almost ready.

"Detroit has a talent gap and and a skills gap and this isn't unique to the city. It's impacting the region and the state as well. So how do we get people to work. What are some of the things to be done about it and how to do it under the current system which as much as some wanted to change it? It's the world. We live in right now without saddling people with puns of debt. Jose is the Director of workforce and Community Development for Washtenaw Community College. And as someone who's both dealt with the city directly a former job at a Detroit based nonprofit and now now working for a community college regionally he brings an interesting perspective. That conversation from the Detroit Policy Conference right after we think our members on patriarch who make the show possible symbol like Alvar. Your support really matters and thank you so much. He joins Colin Mike. Cathy and others at Patriotair Dot com slash daily Detroit so without further. Ado Jose Reyes Jose. Welcome to daily Detroit. Thank you pleasure to be here so I wanted to talk to you. Because workforce development like workforce. That's a fancy word for getting people jobs right well. It's actually more than that okay. Let's talk about that. You know workforce development. I think in some respects Max that is just getting folks. Jobs is the most cursory understanding. Okay workforce development really is understanding the supply and demand chain and again think about it workforce development is based on employer demand supply and demand chain the job seekers out of talent supply and so in the employers are where the demands are in for the skill sets and so for me is a eco-system with the educational provider somewhere in the middle In terms of Skilling up individuals so what is the state of that demand right now in our region is not just in our region I would say even nationally we have two issues at bay day. One is the skills gap which has been referred to as individuals. They're currently in the labor force. Not Matching up to where the new jobs and new technology is taking the jobs that they currently have so employers are looking how to skill up there individuals that they currently have in the talent pipeline. But at the same time we we also have a talent gap which is simply we have folks that are trickling out of their jobs as they are being you know reaching age of Retirement and whatnot and and we don't have enough folks coming into the talent pipeline and so those individuals eighteen to twenty nine we. Detroit in particular has one of the lowest labor participation rates of anywhere in the nation. Wow Yeah so you're talking. Forty seven percent labor participation. A healthy a City probably show where between sixty five to seventy percent labor participation. That's kind of stunning. Why is that well? I think part of that. We're looking at what's going on. Maybe at this city city of Detroit level within the city. Is that you also have epidemic poverty. You actually have the highest poverty in city of Detroit without any any regard for any other city There's no other city in America that has higher poverty than the city of Detroit. And so we think about that has huge what I call residual effects so again folks are poverty. Don't necessarily get the educational opportunities and as such we have generational cycles of poverty have continued Y also. No and I hear this from my listeners. All the time. There's a lot of people that either that are rather frustrated with the amount of debt that they're carrying and then also looking at opportunities going. Well am I going going to have to go and get like a huge amount of loans to be able to become you know more employable and to me. It feels like there are a lot of opportunities. Enfield's that maybe wouldn't take much so that's an interesting point. So one of the first things is that for folks that are outside the labor force career pathways and understanding of career. Pathways is huge. One of the things I did as the CEO of Detroit and point solutions was actually invest into technical Education Centers in partnership with Randolph Technical Education Center was the first place that I actually worked on trying to create a polytechnical school. That would the open for the youth during the day but in the evening be open to the adult so the parents in those communities because this is generational from this standpoint so we wanted to make sure that folks understood where these career pathways are and then provide equity track for them to actually obtain the the skill set that they need it and again I think you know you know we talking off off off the Mike you know. When we're dealing with folks me this opportunity because again to unite somebody with a better quality of life? We know jobs in the economic wellbeing are two critical factors to be able to achieve that quality of life that individuals in their family deserve. And so we wanted to be sure that we can give folks those opportunities and I think there is this well always been this conception that to obese. Assess what you got to go to college in the bottom line is you can make a six figure salary without having six figure debt if you were to go into a skill trade great like an apprenticeship for you know for skilled trades like a pipe fitter carpenter because there's still a demand is more of a demand today than it was. There's so much demand Matt I mean think about specifically in my north neighborhood there now trucks and crews from other states coming to work on homes and to me. It's kind of crazy crazy. I mean I. It is the concept of journeyman right because people they travel for this work but it is predominant. It is something where I'm looking there going. Wow wait a second. That's a broke broke Brooklyn area code. I look at the plate and I'm like. Oh Wow that's Philip like Pennsylvania. What are they doing? Working on House rehabs in the city of Detroit but I talk to be live and talk to the people doing it. Some of them are not major project. Owners they're just a couple from somewhere or whatever they're like we could not get workers or people would tell. Tell me there's a six month. I had something done on the house. I live in and the contractor literally said well I can see you again maybe in June on and that is just not going to work for People Jeremiah spoke to that in real detail. which is you know? The construction skilled trades is really a agile group of individuals. They go there where the projects are with opportunities are and so you know I think you know Detroit at point time when it was you know. Detroit prior to World War or two was one of the richest cities in the world and one of the largest is still right. One hundred thirty nine square. Miles is one of the largest cities in America as well. But you know I think thinks some things have happened. Pulse war to that out on the economic downturn as a result a lot of our construction skilled trades journey. Men's went to where those opportunities were or we're at that time so some went down to the state of Texas and started to build up those areas as Atlanta came on so we lost a lot of that skilled trade Labor Labor that we had and they went to the where the opportunities are now. Because the city is in this resurgence and it's building itself up in reinventing itself it now l. has need for that talent. You know we saw it with district. Detroit when I was in the workforce a Detroit Employment Solutions You know we have twelve thousand folks come through our portal looking for opportunities construction skill traits so as more you know opportunities for development go on more and more folks get that idea that hey I want to be part of that well and it's not just limited to construction I mean I see companies like quicken and IT companies technology companies. All trying to hire and find people and and I mean a lot of them are having a heck of a time doing it. You know it's funny. You mentioned that you know one of the things that I did once. We got the what we call the Detroit Register Apprenticeship Program Program or D wrap as it was affectionately known as underway the other piece I looked at as we're the we're the hot jobs were it healthcare and so we started looking at. Can we apprentice size those opportunities in a way or create special initiative. So one of the things we did was create tech higher. It was actually a initiative by the of Obama Administration but we took some anchor employers that were in the region that had technology needs and did eight week boot camps. We then spun off of that and I call.

Oh I haven't tried that one another really good spot had only been there once But I had a Burrito. There's a lot of raw food on the menu there but it was fantastic a really good fresh food I remember Joe Hakeem from back in the hungry hungry dudes days set me off to that place and I saw a tweet from him that said that he he swore by that place and so I tried it staying in Royal Oak one of my favorite restaurants period period like meat or otherwise is in season cafe. I love that restaurant. I think they do a fantastic job. It's a fairly small menu but they everything they make is just like you can taste the love and the food. It's fresh You know well prepared food very flavorful very tasty head back downtown there save. Aw Aw of course in midtown. I'm all about that general sells cauliflower. Yeah save is safe house good. You know it's the Detroit outpost of a longtime Ann Arbor Vegetarian in staple restaurant. You know it's been in business since the seventy S if I remember correctly also the only recommendation off the top of my head that has a full bark. It's always a good thing you know. I used to be a vegetarian for many years. I was never vegan but I was vegetarian. And you know we're blessed in the Detroit area with a wealth of Middle Eastern restaurants which is a very vegetarian friendly cuisine as is Indian. And there's a lot of good Indian restaurants in parts of Metro Detroit Anyway I think Indian food is is largely vegetarian to begin with and it's super flavorful. Vegetarian food so I don't think that greenspace leaves a you know a a desert or void. Necessarily I haven't been there. My wife was a big fan of have greenspace. I'M GONNA try to get in there before they closed because it has been on my list. I know she's upset about it because she really liked that place. You're talking about Indian food. I gotta give a new recommendation. nationlly recently discovered by me but I have multiple friends. Who Vouch for this place? It's actually in Northville across from the Sheraton out there. All right. It's called Daba Indian cuisine and it is in a BP gas station of all places and it's got a wide variety of dishes there well executed. It's it's a total carry out place. I guess there's a couple couple of chairs that are shared with the gas station. Here's a deal and you know that I love this combination of like the gas station. It's such a Detroit yet. So Detroit the tasty burgers and Dearborn. There's a bunch of places I I just. I is so quintessentially metro-detroit well then if you're fan of that checkout Mr Kebab in Berkeley I'm not sure what the gas station affiliated with is. I've never been there but I've had their food and because a friend of mine's a is a huge fan of it and it is indeed Worthwhile for sure. Mr Kebab in Berkeley Detroit is a desirable place to be. According to a reason. Poll of a thousand Americans a website called the storage space says as they commissioned a poll asking people if they could move anywhere in the country. Where would they move to in two thousand twenty on the list of twenty cities Detroit at number eighteen? And that's is GONNA be right between Albuquerque New Mexico at Seventeen and Bozeman Montana at nineteen which I've learned the intervening time. I finding this out that Bozeman is apparently growing like crazy. Like who knew it must be all the people moving there to be dental floss. Tycoons you ever heard that Frank Zappa Song. Oh my that. The nineteen seventy one. I think seventy seventy one anyway. Now the reason given to move to the city because and this is a direct quote it's perfect for hipsters. I what's what's that mean. I'm not sure. Does that mean that like is that like. Are you counting all people who like pour overs. Because then I think we're both hipsters. What does that mean exactly? I have no idea. I don't know it's Bozeman. Good for hipster sue or Albuquerque. But here's the thing I have learned that in the intervening time facebook commenters do not like hipsters Okay storage space sites greater downtown's low comparative rent to other big cities which although one thousand seventy five bucks is high for most current city residents and let's face it most metro detroiters. It's a bargain for New Yorkers and others who are used to paying a lot more for a lot less in square footage I mean span you and I have both been through New York and other places. Prices are much higher there. I mean you can get a place for certain amounts of money. But YOU'RE GONNA get tiny little tiny little places allow me to introduce myself represented. The rent is too damn high party anecdotally. When I lived in midtown a couple of years ago it seemed like pretty much every new neighbor Svend van? That was moving in wasn't from the BURBS. But and in fact the people who would tour rentals and other places if they were from the burbs normally they would settle on like Grosse Pointe or Ferndale n'dale or Dearborn or something but the folks moving in they were like from New York Chicago. Seattle San Francisco that kind of thing. I know that's like completely legally anecdotal but it just something I've noticed being here and a lot of those folks were moving in for jobs that say quicken or like some people that we know actually they. They were keeping their west or east coast salary and living in Detroit which working. Yeah which gives you a huge economic advantage around here anyway in the story. I got to braise them for shoutouts to stand by skip astro coffee and batch brewing. What I'm about to say is no knock against them? I actually enjoy those places quite a bit. But there's more to the city than just those places I mean. There's like so much more to the city for that like always keep getting written up anyway rounding out the top three on. The list are Franklin in Tennessee. Atlanta Georgia which by the way apparently is good for singles and the top billing goes to high low Hawaii which sounds amazing looking at the multiple inches of snow outside my window right now Atlanta and high low make sense. I have to Google. Franklin Tennessee even is up. That's a new one for me. I'm GonNa Guess Tennessee. It looks like it's a suburb of Nashville. I guess that makes sense.

"Welcome back from the holiday weekend. There is a lot going on. So let's just get right to it last week on the show we told you how a Capitol reporter up in Lansing Lansing alleged. That state Senator Peter Lucido of Shelby Township made a sexist remark to her while she tried to interview him. Now a fellow state senator of Lagos Acevedo's said she's filing a workplace sexual harassment complaint against him state. Senator Mallory Mc Moro tells cranes the incident took place in November or twenty eighteen after she was first elected to her seat representing the Thirteenth District in Oakland County Mc Moro a Democrat from Royal Oak said. She introduced herself to Lucido a Republican at an orientation event for newly elected senators. She said Lucido shook her hand but kept his other hand on her lower back throughout the conversation conversation when mcmorris told him that she had defeated an incumbent Republican she said Lucido looked her up and down and told her I can see why McMurdo said she. She stayed silent because she was a freshman. Senator Endless Saito was a former member of the State House who had just been elected to a state Senate seat in the majority party. Her account account was partly backed up by a fellow Senate. Lawmaker who witnessed. Lucy does hand on her lower back. Lucie told crain's the allegation was quote completely untrue and politically motivated unquote. The news comes a week after Michigan advanced reporter Alison Donohue reported. That Lucido told her in front of a a group of Catholic schoolboys quote. You could have a lot of fun with these boys or they could have a lot of fun with you and quote the Senate Business Office is investigating that incident cendant upon request of Senate leaders from both parties. The CTO is a licensed attorney. Who served two terms in the State House before being elected to the state Senate in two thousand eighteen he? He has been widely thought to be considering a run for governor. A lot of people have been talking online about how much money has been raised by recreational marijuana on in Michigan in. Its first six weeks and of course we also chatted about it on this very show more than ten million in sales and about one point seven million in taxes however a new report from Steve needling at the Metro Times puts this all in perspective that in fact Michigan has been far behind other states in recreational marijuana sales ails early on for instance Illinois there. It took just five days to sell what Michigan did in six weeks. There are quite a few reasons for this. Including the fact that Michigan has a very limited number of licensed dispensaries that are actually open. Also as we've talked about here on the show. Eighty percent of cities have opted out of selling selling recreational marijuana altogether that means no dispensaries and no shared revenue for those places slowly. Michigan is bringing new dispensaries online. The first licensed since medical marijuana dispensary and Wayne County has opened first quality meds with a Z.. In River Rouge the next closest one Ann Arbor. This city of Detroit is a place place where an overwhelming majority of residents voted for legalized marijuana. However they're extending their temporary ban on dispensaries through at least March the the vote by city council was unanimous as it works on a city specific social equity program chairs really interesting how so many communities at least voters communities wanted marijuana to be legal? And yet you know people don't want it sold in their communities Nimby at its finest I mean for sure I mean you look at that in the city of Detroit royal folks wrestling with this problem to royal oak overwhelmingly wanted recreational and medical marijuana. But there's a big debate. Now Okay do we want them on Woodward Avenue. Is that something that they wanna the have. It's amazing how many of these communities like I feel like there's just like this huge disconnect between leadership and like what people want and that Illinois for example. I wanted to pull it out because like it's so crazy to me you'd think we'd if we had our ducks in a row we'd have so much more money in the coffers. Yeah you know I keep going back to kind of the cultural roll obstacles that marijuana has to overcome and it's GonNa take a long time. I mean you know. This was a drug that was totally demonized. Going way back to the founding of this country you know it was associated with with immigrants with people of Color essentially. I mean it was. It was used as a racist Haji. Yeah absolutely it was just socially ostracized you know. You did not want people to know that you smoke marijuana. And it's like I'm a father of two kids and I think about it all the time it's like you know marijuana's basically on par now at least legally with alcohol so so but it's GonNa take a long time until we can kind of equate the two substances like. Yeah no no different really than drinking. You know you just have to be twenty one on and you know by by other rules but you know it's GonNa take a long time like there's a lot of social stigma that needs to kind of evaporate and it might take a couple of generations. Shins I think frankly well and I think that stigma probably affecting those politicians responses. The Illitch family has made a proposal to the city in which it would hand over two properties. It owns in exchange for an extension on a deadline to submit a new development plan for property owns in the district. Detroit Olympia Development has has been criticized heavily including on this podcast for the slow pace of development in the district. Detroit which is today mostly surface parking lots under the deal it would get until September twenty twenty two to submit plans for the parcel. Just south of little caesars arena where it had originally planned to build a hotel and retail stores ars in exchange. The city will get to open lots one in brush park and the other in midtown that it would convert to public parks. The plan must first be approved by the city council. So then I know I have thanks. I know you have. Thanks my thinks is you know. I mean we've talked a lot about the district troy and its failings on the show. A lot taxpayer. Money went to you. Know the this whole idea of the district Detroit in the little caesars arena and everything and there's we've got surface parking lots and I'd point out. We were actually part part of that that earlier. Trench of criticism because at I mean we're right around all the time. Yeah I would say that illegitimate supposedly floating these new figures figures of like jobs construction jobs and full time permanent jobs that would go along with this extended deadline. Kate fine whatever I mean you know. They don't have a great track record on delivering on these things in the past. I mean going way back to well before the district attorney. This is the cities. This is their first opportunity. One opportunity at least to extract a pound of flesh from illegit out of this deal. I mean I think okay. It's well and good to get two parcels to Macon departs but like let's start putting some teeth into these agreements agreements. Like I think the city needs to take time and really come up and say how can we build in some assurances that they're going to do what they say here and Dan Come out with some actual tangible benefits to the city. Well especially going forward. Is this deal the first district Detroit deal was I believe done under bankruptcy and so this was not done by the current administration. I will note. That Duggan says that this is. He believes that this is a good deal. I wonder what the actual market demand is for those properties. Brady's right so if this property trade is a good deal key seeing things behind the scenes that maybe we are aren't if there were a bunch of suitors somebody wanting to drop a bunch of money on this land and I wonder if he would take that or did he look at this and go well parks is best. We're going to get right now. Yes good point. Vegan restaurant greenspace cafe has announced. It will close its flagship. Sit Down Restaurant Down Ferndale..

"Hard top Detroit for more all right first. Up is the news that the federal government and the trump administration are going to get more involved in law enforcement in the city of Detroit. US Attorney General. William Bar unveiled operation relentless pursuit. That's a seventy one million dollar initiative focus on violent crime gangs and drug trafficking and a number of cities including the motor city as well as has albuquerque. Baltimore Cleveland Memphis Milwaukee and Kansas City. The idea is that federal money and talent would partner with local agencies to get the most violent violent offenders off the streets and it is true. That Detroit has the highest violent crime rate per capita in the country but bar was heavy with rhetoric in an editorial in conservative. Detroit news today saying that policing reforms that offered leniency to violent offenders anti police rhetoric and a surge in police officers assaulted led to increases in crime in two thousand fifteen and twenty sixteen the Attorney General referred to operation relentless pursuit as a quote surge. And I'd note that that's a term arm that's often reserved from military operations that will build on the Justice Department's project safe neighborhoods project guardian. And something they're calling deep the disruption in an early engagement program with the goal of reducing gun crime and preventing mass shootings. There would be in their words state of the art technology deployed and about four. One hundred officers nationwide hired for the program but where those officers are going to specifically go. Well that hasn't been announced Jer- I'm GonNa Guess You. There's some thoughts on this one. I I for sure. Do you know as a longtime city resident gotta say and this is regardless of party because both Democrats and Republicans have. I've been heavy on enforcement things. I am always sceptical of anything. That seems more focused on closing people into jail cells than opening doors of opportunity. And let's let's be completely clear here. I am not against lowering crime. Like lowering. Crime is a very good goal but the route and real causes of crime in urban America it's poverty and it's a lack of opportunities and the schools that graduate only ten percent of their kids. That are ready for college. And we've covered this a taunt on this very show programs that focus I mostly enforcement especially and here's the thing they're they're pairing this with cuts to education on a federal level. I mean these are like band. AIDS being applied to gushing wounds and our country has a lot of wounds whether it's an equity racism racism a bunch of other issues. And I mean I don't. I don't think this is a winning combination because if there were jobs proper schools there are more opportunities if people wouldn't turn to crime and I think that's the thing is that we've got to get to the root causes of this and because so many people try to deal with these issues don't live in these kind of communities communities or have to deal with them they don't know how to handle them and make a real dent and locally. I am really cognizant of the verbiage and the feel talking some neighbors of mine. This feels a lot like stress back in the day it was called stopped robberies. Enjoy safe streets and if you didn't know what that was it was basically an undercover unit of the Detroit Police Department in the early Seventies. That were thugs. I mean straight up killing scores of African Americans and there's a great episode of Crime Crime Town that linked to in the show notes. But I mean it is. It is scary when you talk about heavy enforcement for a lot of African Americans in this country and if you want to know one of the key things powered Mayor Coleman young into office. Detroit's first black mayor that I know a lot of listeners find controversial it was enlarged response to to the evils of that stress unit to the African American community and the large number of people. They killed so i. I personally skeptical. Jared skeptical off in a case of to paraphrase Brittany Spears. oops I doubt again. The Detroit free press is reporting the DOM. Oh the largest contractor as part one of the city's massive demolition program as again demolished the wrong house. They had a contract for more than twenty five thousand dollars to demolish house on Alma Street. But they got the address wrong and took down a house a block over. It's absurd it's not good and we'll put a Lincoln show notes to the full story a quick reminder that poverty exemption. MCI for your property taxes in the city of Detroit needs to be applied for by the end of tomorrow December twentieth. The exemption can take between half and all of your tax bill love if you are a homeowner who qualifies the program which has already been extended runs through December twentieth. To See if you can make it go to Detroit I am. I dot g-o-v or dot Gov and search for H. P. T. A. P. H. P. T. a. p. also put a link in the show notes. So here's an interesting one related to big plant. FCA is building on. Detroit's east side on Mac as part of the massive deal to get that done. FCA FCA has transferred. Half of what will be one point. Eight million dollars to Detroit's Housing and Revitalization Department to fund a Home Repair Grant Program homeowners. Living living near the plant can get up to fifteen thousand dollars per property to fix up their homes. And here's a key. This is a grant not alone so you don't have to pay it back. Applications locations will open in the spring. And we'll be sure to talk about it again. When it becomes available to nearby residence wheelhouse? DETROIT ANNOUNCE THE CLOSURE OF ITS HAMTRAMCK location and which has been operating on Joseph Compo for the past three years. All stock is twenty five percent off until the last day and that's December twenty first. So that's coming up real soon. The the bicycle retail and repair shop will focus on. It's Detroit location. That's over by the riverfront. It's it's absolutely beautiful but I gotta say it's kind of sad to see this. I hate to see retail stores. Go and I hate to see bike shops go also we'll house Detroit sponsored bike parking DC FC mattress. I'm wondering if that will continue. I mean he did. I mean I know that the owner has been active even the community for a really long time and I mean things must have not been working out for this thing to to close in the western suburb of Dearborn. Beaumont has broken ground in a new forty million dollar mental health facility. The plan is for it to open in mid twenty twenty according to press materials Beaumont and universal health services will have a one hundred fifty bed had one hundred thousand square foot facility across from the existing hospital on Rotunda drive. Mental health is an important and growing issue in Michigan suicide rates in the state of Michigan in had gone up about thirty three percent since nineteen ninety nine and one in five Americans deal with mental health issues. Lakeside Mall in Sterling Heights has been acquired by new owners owners who planned to eventually add retail and office space to the hundred Acre site and that is up in mccomb county quite a bit away from downtown. But it's interesting since Malls Randy are. They still thing man. I don't know if you need a mall for the Plethora of shopping experiences. I like that word. Plethora is a good one but I like the idea of a space where you can go and spend a day kind of like a destination venue. There's definitely like a need for that and I actually met somebody the other month that actually works at the the old fairlane mall. It's actually like it's still a mall in part but there's also a huge chunk of it that's apparently Ford Office space. Oh Wow that's a good use for the space I guess since Shops chops are leaving well. And there's lots of parking and all of that kind of stuff. Yeah I wonder what will happen out there you know McCone county is definitely growing and the farther out you get. There's there's definitely a lot of investment happening. I wonder like kind of recycling up cycling. The space is a good idea. I wonder if they'll put it in an observation tower for the Golden Bowl. This this is Kinda neat as it's right in my neighborhood the funky for no Arthur has been named one of America's Best Art Fairs by art fair calendar Dot Com based on voting by patrons collectors organizers and artists.

You know speaking of places with Fox to apparently ripped on Ferndale for not having having enough parking earlier this week and Because I guess they went to Valentine for some company Party and they were just very upset about this. There's a private lot right next door. Or there's a municipal lot behind that private lot and their street parking so I don't know did they not want to walk the extra fifty steps. According to hometown town life dot Com. The Novi Planning Commission has postponed a rezoning decision. I cur Novi a fifty million dollar mixed use development featuring Asian restaurants. It's as well as apartments with a Japanese garden. The postponement is due to several questions about the project that would require rezoning along Grand River and eleven mile east. TOWNE centre drive They keep talking about this when that might happen and might not happen. One of the things I've read in the notes about this and stories over time is that they really want to make this a flutie destination and randy. If there are foodies in the world I know that you are one of them What do you think the idea of a foodie destination especially out somewhere in Novy? That's I mean it's it's definitely like a a distance away it would have to be one heck of a restaurant to get me to go all the way to Novi two weekends ago. A friend had to twist. It's my arm to get me to go to Farmington hills. Well all right. But here's the thing was that place in Farmington hills worth the drive. Yeah we went to India flavors and it was amazing.

"Ground that's believed to contain uranium has collapsed into the Detroit River. We talked to the reporter that broke the story. Dave Bad Ajello from the Windsor is our star and then around of what to know where to go around town on Today's Daily Detroit. It's Thursday December Fifth Twenty nineteen. I'm Jason Jason. Well let's dive right in at some point over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend a portion of riverbank near Fort Wayne collapse into the Detroit River. That riverbank is believed to contain material. Leftover from the Manhattan project. If you remember that was the national effort to create the atomic bomb during World War Two and the company on that land extruded uranium rods into the nineteen fifties for nuclear development to talk about it as Dave Bad. Ajello from the Windsor Star. Dave Dave what exactly happened over there near Fort Wayne. Oh for my understanding from all the information I received is that there was Detroit bulk storage just a company and they at least property there The property is not on by Maroon. A lot of people seem to think it is but it's owned by a grand rapids company called Erickson Group so Detroit's bookstores moved in there on July. They've been struggling with called aggregate or gravel on the site since that time The night before is learning today the night before Thanksgiving they had quite a sizeable pile on the property From ship that just dropped it off the pro that night there was a lot of rainfall the rivers high as it is according to the owner of the gravel stored about one hundred feet from the shore and then the sure started to give away It broke out into the water. And all of the aggregate gravel. Yeah that was being stored near the show has sure has fallen into the river gravel could contain contaminants right because this used to be Old Revere Copper Site. Yeah it's not the actual gravel that would be contaminated but it's the ground itself used to be the former revere copper site which which people As I'm learning just yesterday myself. That's eight revere. Copper was involved in what's known as the Manhattan Project Race to build the first atomic bon the company back in the nineteen forties was subcontracted to be part of that and they constructed. What's known as uranium rods They started that in the forties and continue to construct uranium rods well into the nineteen mid mid nineteen fifties Before they stopped likely for safety reasons the property was abandoned in the eighties. So nobody there's been soil checks but nothing really of any recent time Dating back to perhaps the nineties was the most recent check. But anytime you're dealing with uranium radium like chance. It was in the soil which might have been fine but now the soil broken away and into the river. It's kind of scary if you think about it because I I mean. I don't think we think about these things in Detroit per se. You know because especially I think. A lot of people don't realize that we have connections to the Manhattan project. I don't think I certainly only didn't and I don't think many people would be aware that given their history of time or the passage of time But here's a company that was in Detroit involved in developmentally. Oh Yeah Tomic. Bomb played a role in producing parts for the bomb For quite a lengthy period of time but unfortunately production now maybe causing initiative giving up the shores breaking away here into the river. So do you have any idea of what's next or what to look forward to in this saga while everybody's is not everybody's just kinda doing right now and they're all on the phone today to try to figure out a strategy how to deal with this Detroit bookstores. It's a company involved here. I spoke with the owner and I don't think he really grasp himself the history of the site. He just. He's in the gravel business and didn't seem to have a strong hold on the history in what was actually in the ground beneath him. He's learning that today. Eagle as your environmental agency is known as on the phone trying to get investigators to the site and develop a strategy in terms of how to deal one what the ground broken and the river washing up on it to deal with the aggregate that's fallen into the river. And what how big of a problem all of this is. The site has been listed by the Wall Street Journal. As one of America's forgotten nuclear wastelands. The danger here is what's in the ground that we've talked talked about but also the sediment nearby as the Detroit River is bottom has a variety of chemicals leftover from industry like Mercury and. PCB's left alone and in place. It's not as much of a danger but disturb it and disperse it and it could be a different story in fact this particular site was being considered for the new Gordie Howe Bridge but but environmental concerns. Put the brakes on that idea. And here's the Cherry on top. According to maps you were able to find downriver from the site are a couple of water intakes one at Wine Ryan Dot and another near fighting island. We'll keep an eye on the story and you can follow Dave from the star on twitter at Dave Jello and that's with two TS and two wells. There's a new development in the case of the slain Detroit police officer Rashid. McLean if you remember. He was killed on November twentieth and his partner Philippe Platoon whom beasts was wounded in leg. twenty-eight-year-old John Parks was arraigned Thursday in thirty-six District Court on Sixteen felony charges included.

Eight hundred and fourteen hourly and salaried read employees will be affected and the lace will begin at the end of February twenty twenty more than seven hundred fifty workers are covered by the UAW and have bumping rights to other plants per collective bargaining agreement. But those rights do not extend to the retooled plant. DETROIT HAMTRAMCK will build all electric trucks vans though there isn't a specific product design yet. GM says that there will be about two thousand two hundred twenty five jobs there after the three billion dollar investment is done related is an announcement of a joint venture with LG. Oh Gee Kim to put two point three billion bucks into a new electric battery plant in Lordstown Ohio General Motors in multiple interviews says that the company is preparing for an all all electric future. There's something that I saw that I find kind of interesting mostly because of the timing. If you remember on yesterday's show we talked about buddies opening and kid rock pulling out of his licensing deal at little. CAESARS arena. The Metro Times is now reporting that kid rock announcement came the same day as a racial racial discrimination lawsuit by a former black bartender was settled for an undisclosed sum. According to the suit she alleged she was fired for wearing an Afro. Throw the restaurant also. It was licensed by rock is operated by Delaware north. The National Food Service Company that runs many of the concepts in the arena. The News Center sides largest residential project in years opened their doors Thursday.

Parking structure is said to be sixty million dollars in the suburbs. The Wilcox Mill in Plymouth and the Newburgh Burgh mill site in Livonia. Just took a big step toward being redeveloped. The Wayne County Commission approved the sale of the properties for a total of seven hundred sixty five thousand dollars and approved an agreement to acquire nearly seven acres and Westland to add to Hines Park. The sold properties will be part of the mill. Run Place Making project. So so what are the plan for these Wilcox Mill was bought by Milan rooch and that was created by well known local artist. Tony Roco and the art foundation. They planned to rehab the building into to an art education space and construct a publicly accessible inner child sculpture garden that displays three-dimensional realizations of children's drawings. Look developer. Richard Cox will renovate the NEWBURGH mill into a distillery with retail space and park that shaped like a spiral inspired by the automotive parts. Once made on the site Cox has a track record including turning the Northville mill into modern office space. He also purchased Phoenix Millan Plymouth Township and has turning that property into an event event facility with public green spaces. The county will get first right of refusal under the deal to repurchase the properties if the new owners assigned to ever sell them in the future. And and there's a bit of history to these buildings and Land Wilcox in newburgh mills as well as the Phoenix Mill in Nankin mills were part of the Ford Village Industries Network of part factories located along the Middle Rouge River. They were deeded to the county by Ford Motor Company in Nineteen Forty eight Nankin mills remains with Wayne County Johny. It houses.

"Not know where the bodies are buried but probably wrote the press releases about the grave digger jobs that got created or retained. I got to see from the sausage making how much the incentives did or didn't change things based on what i knew. The company's plans already. Are i mean i remember talking one c._e._o. Of a publicly traded company it's wasn't in michigan. This was someplace else and i said you know you're sort of a free market guy. Why are you taking these things and he's like well. Yes not changing our plants. I mean maybe it makes us move a little bit faster. He's like you know but my shareholders free free money. My shareholders would fire me if i didn't take it and they'd be right to okay fair enough. That's the reality more often than not. These deals. Don't actually make the difference there a factor. I'm not saying that they're completely meaningless but they're one of twenty thirty however many factors that companies look at whereas they are retreated by the digi by the by the others out there as the thing that made the difference when in fact they're just you know one of dozens of factors is that that played it and so you have to take that into account when you're figuring out are they worth it well. If there were say twenty factors that went into the decision for the plant right and one of them was incentives if there were nineteen factors and they didn't get the incentives would they have done the same thing or functionally the same thing without taking three hundred nineteen eighteen million dollars out of state and local coffers without spending more on land than we spent on the health department et cetera et cetera. There's just increasing amounts of evidence from all over the political spectrum mm-hmm that these deals just don't they don't make a difference they don't work and you just cannot justify famous piece from the university of iowa our this guy said <hes> at the end of the day ninety percent of these deals are bad and ten percent good promise. You can't tell ahead of time what the ten one percent are going to be that to me is bad math and i think there's a lot of other things that we could be doing with those resources and doing to actually create a detroit that works for every the business not just sort of the politically favourite few and i think that gets to your point about you know the small business how hard it is to start up a business how challenging it can be especially an environment like this. It's hard to find people you know. We're all of a sudden. You're competing with some subsidized fortune five hundred corporation <hes> for the same aim people. You know how you're going to do that. Are you going to be able to do good work with that. So one of the things that's coming up on the horizon is some renewals of some laws and this is going to get really wonky for our listeners but i know that our listeners kinda love. There's a little bit what exactly is happening because there was an interesting abed in bridge magazine and that kind of i think it caught my eye as somebody who covers it and i know it caught yours kind of like all these incentives do a great thing but there's actually a piece of legislation a law. That's about to sunset. Can you talk to us about why you think that's important sure it's the name of the <hes> of the legislation is is <hes> is good jobs for michigan. I tend to refer to it as good jobs for politicians. It was legislation passed toward the end of the snyder administration that created a new economic development tool unquote for the state and it was really designed to be something that was aimed at big projects. It was aimed <music> at foxconn. It was aimed at amazon and i think that anybody who looks back and now looks at what what's going on with fox kind of wisconsin where it's an absolute disaster then looks at the clown own show that has been amazon's whole back and forth with new york and then <hes> the d._c. Area can be glad that we actually dodged those bullets and didn't end up with those deals bridge magazine you mentioned they actually went through and ran the numbers and they said fairly recently that by their math. It's costing forty two thousand dollars per job. It's been promised to be created and not actually created yet but promised to be created that program among other things that did is it actually sets up a system where workers are effectively paying their income taxes not to the state government but rather to the corporation that employs them or the developer helper. That's building the building. You know the chrysler plaza example ten years of one hundred percent state income tax capture from the workers employed in the building <unk> over a certain number of a over a certain salary range. That's the first time that michigan's ever put in place as a situation like that where we're income tax got diverted away from the state and back towards private business and that was a pretty big change that that happened without a lot of people understanding it involves like not paying sales taxes on on the construction materials materials and given that sales taxes the way that we primarily fund education in the state. That's kind of a <hes> question that people should probably talk about in order to get the law passed the sponsors of the time had to agree to sunset at the law ends at the end of calendar twenty nine hundred december thirty first and as you said the op ed bridge made ate a lot of us think that there's a little nervousness on the m._e._d. Side and the michigan strategic fund side and the and the people who benefit and profit from that that they're seeing the fact that there is this really interesting sort of not even nonpartisan trans partisan consensus growing up against renewing doing it. You know i come from sort of limited government free markets side of things i was. I was vice president the mackinac center for public policy. I talked to folks. Who are you know sort of on the quote right right unquote but on this i'm you know side by side with <hes> folks on the <hes> left progressive as the tena so this is a topic were national review. The conservative magazine wrote a column. We finally found something we agree with alexandra cossio cortez on and it was about her opposition position to amazon and new york. This is a topic that doesn't break on the right right left spectrum. It's much more sort of on the us versus them spectrum whether you want to call it populist or whatever ever but there's a very interesting consensus growing across among people who are sort of you know you can dislike big government or you can dislike big business but we can all agree see that when the two of them get together. It's not a great idea for the rest of us and there's a consensus growing up against that against the legislature passing the new law and the governor signing the law to extend the that good jobs from michigan legislation all right so. Let's have some real talk here but if we don't do this then are we gonna lose. These things like this and this going to throw a wrench into all of this economic development happening. I mean there's a lot of folks who might say well. Yeah i mean sort of i mean we don't want to give this to the companies openings but we want jobs and he went. What's number behind all this. The first answer is that you know no. These jobs aren't all go someplace else because these again these programs aren't making the difference and why the jobs here are here in the first place but even if we got rid of the good jobs for michigan i mean that's one tiny piece italian the grand scope of things. It's still a lot of money tiny piece of what the state and the local governments already spent. I mean all told just intact payments not subsidies not training but just in terms of pure how much money they are not taking in in taxes every year because of economic development deals state and local combined in michigan is nine hundred forty four million dollars that is almost two billion dollars. That's real money state budgets the last date <hes> fiscal report said that the state alone had abated just under are just over seven hundred and sixty million dollars that is again. Nobody knows what that means. That's more money than we spend on running the entire michigan state police every year. I think about this in the context of this big road funding debate exactly i wrote a piece and cranes a couple of months ago saying hey you wanna place to start. Let's take off and nuke the dc from orbit. It'll take a while for that. Although a lot of that's under contracts that you can't get out of but at least it's a starting point or you know that same amount of money you talking about the road funding debate again seven hundred sixty four million dollars in a beta taxes the total amount of money that dot spends every year on wages and benefits for all of its employees plus materials plus all to.

"The motor city supporters liked that created a walkable space for the public to enjoy with vendors food trucks and seating areas the city's neighborhoods dot org site now says that steps will be taken to ensure the plaza's permanency now that you. The news here are my two cents. I say this is I live in the city. I'm personally for this one. The most successful areas of Detroit are the ones that are walkable and welcoming and six lanes of traffic in four directions is the absolute reverse that one criticism awesome I would have is that they need to move that bus. Stop on Jefferson. Maybe about twenty or thirty feet. It's just awkward where it is now and another thing and this is one thing I wanted to note here to. I'd love to see the city do something with Hart Plaza. That's across the street there but I get the idea that it'd be a very expensive undertaking the bottom line. I think Detroit has made a lot of terrible design decisions in the last twenty years and we're only now starting to catch up with the rest of the nation and as the traffic well as someone who's lived in and been another cities. We don't really know what real traffic is. After all who are we building Detroit four residents or commuters and for what it's worth the city says that the plaza didn't impact traffic long term. I think it'd be better if we could build more garages so folks could park sooner and then get to their offices one of the things I've noticed that that's interesting about Detroit. Is that a lot of folks stay in their offices. They go to work and they don't go out for lunch. They don't go to dinner are afterward. Yes there are more people out there now especially with folks like the quicken family of companies and some younger folks but I think about our food contributor Randy Walker. He works a corporate day job. It is so hard for him to get his CO workers to come out of the building for lunch. It's it's crazy for good extra conversation around all of this checkout in the feed. I'll have lincoln the show notes to my conversation with bedrocks vice president of Parking Kevin Bob. It's good one the legendary bar and music venue where the white stripes started has burned the gold dollar on casts and I can see the back of it from our window here at the podcast. The traits studios had a fire last night. The place has a really interesting history for a time as a beer garden a drag club and as a music venue. It's currently owned by a company controlled. trolled by the illitch family and had been left derelict for quite a while as of this recording the fire is being investigated as being likely arson and there were no injuries. I just checked over. There and crews. Were boarding the place up so my drinking career was just getting started when this one was shut down and let's be honest my memories here a bit blurry. Here's hoping that this might spur some folks into action to do something however I'm skeptical because the track record of the owners my chips are going to be placed based on landscaped lit fenced parking lot until proven otherwise kid rock is selling his Detroit home. The Riverfront Mansion in the Joe Berry subdivision is on the market circuit for two point two million. The Detroit news reports that the six Thousand Square Foot House was purchased in twenty twelve and in that time the owner whose real name is Robert Richey has made a lot of renovations will link to it and the show notes joining me on the line from London as Murray Hillary welcome daily Detroit. Thanks for having me. You have a really interesting event coming up to the TRAE. Riverfront next month called the silent hike. Where did you come up with this idea? I had this idea because of the pianist and composer I also am deeply inspired by nature so I thought what could be more immersive and inspiring than having the whole audience moving through nature with me and with music carrying us all so that was the real inspiration for this experience. So how does this work it kind of reminds me of like a silent disco where if people don't know where you wear headphones but you can tune into different channels. It's it's really fun right so essentially we're like our own radio station moving. Moving through the park and <hes> we're going to be walking for about ninety minutes or so from one monument to the next taking the landscape while wearing these wireless headphones that as you mentioned sometimes they're used for dancing disco <hes> events but we're using them for a deeply reflective contemporary tive almost meditative experience the music that'll be playing will be original compositions and why piano recordings of mine that I created and also be guiding the experience through the microphone that you can only here in the headphones as well. That's layered over the music so that I can guide experience. It's not just where we're going but also a kind of guiding of the external and the internal landscape and that's really the idea behind the mind travel silent hike experience. Is it Kinda fuses together this internal Oh experience we have our own internal landscape and it connects it with our external landscape and so the to kind of come together well and you brought this experience as some pretty high profile places I mean Central Park Lincoln Center much which Paul to Museum of art you know it seems like there's a little bit of a higher purpose and in my background I saw that the mission is to move people to greater purpose through the in their lives through music. Can you kind of talk about that in that. It's a seems to be like a meditative experience. That's right in in some ways. It's it's like a modern take on walking meditation but we're taking it to a whole new level through the technology and the music and you know typically in our lives we're so busy where easily really distracted with our digital devices or smartphones social media. I mean you name it. We're we're distracting. Our attention is pulled in so many different directions through this experience. We create the space to connect within to kind. Love opened up creativity to really connect with our deepest selves so that we can show up in life and choose kind of what's important to us and we can show up and behave and be with the ones we love how we WANNA be rate of cells so when I talk about moving people purpose it's really about creating the space for them to reflect and connect to what's important to them and sometimes it's easy to lose sight of bats. Lose track of that in our busy lives so that that's really the aspiration of this experience. So why did you bring this to Detroit yeah so I've been taking this from city to city country to country. I'm actually speaking to you now from London where we'll be doing it this evening here at <hes> in Kensington in gardens <hes> we were in Berlin yesterday Paris two days ago and really this has become a universal experience that no matter where I take it no matter what country what background what ethnicity what religion what culture the experience resonates in the same way because this experiences about creating that soundtrack to the human story and beneath all are perceived differences. I believe there live a common the thread a common human experience common human story and so I said you know what I wanNA. Take this from coast to coast. This is not just about Los Angeles. This is not just about New York. This is about every city in between so I'm I'm getting in my van and I'm driving from New York all the way to the West Coast and we're GonNa hit over twenty cities along the way and you know we chose Detroit along with other incredible cities in the Midwest and the south to bring it to places. Is that might not ordinarily have an experience like this as easily as you know accessible especially because what I do doesn't exist. No I really WANNA bring it to new places and Detroit specifically has had it history with difficult times but now there's a a lot of exciting things happening there and it's very encouraging to see but of course there's still a long way to go so I would love to be a small part if I can of the solution and brings some magic to that incredible city so let's talk about when that Magic's happening I understand it's <hes> coming August sixth. That's right yes. We'll be there and it'll be in the evening or people have to do is show up. They get the headphones <hes> when they do. It's a free experience because we really WanNa make it fully accessible to everyone in the community unity and so you just have to sign up and we reserve the headphones for you well. It sounds like something that I'm going to have to do on my birthday because actually that is my actual birthday. I'm also in August a little later in the month but <hes> it's a it's a great month. You'll be alive right absolutely absolutely whoa Mary thank you so much for taking a few minutes to talk to us out of your busy schedule and <hes> folks be sure to check out this experience.

"You might remember on a previous episode of the show. The head of Detroit's Economic Growth Corporation told us that more developments were coming to Detroit seaside and that's because of the soon to be expanded Chrysler plant well here we go the side of the now closed kettering during high school and Rose Elementary School is slated to become a fifty five million dollar facility for Auto Supplier Dakota Integrated Systems Detroit School district will get three point two million dollars for the thirty two acre site. It's expected that six hundred twenty eighty five jobs will be created and the mayor's office says the Detroit residents will get the first shot. The deal still needs to be approved through city council and of course there's going to be incentives to this one those are still not defined and there will be community benefits process and that's going to get underway due to the plan is for the facility to be up and running in late twenty twenty and here's a fun fact the giant K. Out Front of Kettering High School will be preserved. This next story makes me wonder if we're New Orleans or Detroit Detroit's fiery wayside near the Grosse Pointe border and the Detroit River has been battling ongoing flooding since a large storm earlier this summer mix that with rising river water levels and you've got a recipe for havoc now. The city is going to step up their efforts to stop the flooding. A complicating factor actor in that area of town has a series of canals with homes right on them and the Detroit River has not hit its high water mark yet so the city of Detroit is going to be using city workers and resources to fill in play sandbags. They also issued an emergency order it allows workers to go on private property and place those sandbags wherever they feel they're needed and if residents are others move the sandbags well that could be a misdemeanor so why all the fuss now the pumping system needs relief in case of more rains or higher waters both of which are probably going to happen. The Detroit Water and Sewage Department says if they don't take action now. There's a danger of a complete failure if more water comes so does we on the Franklin win. It have the same ring as we on the. Lodge with it well. We're about to find out Michigan Governor. Gretchen whitmer signed a bill to rename a portion of the lodge. The ARETHA L. Franklin Memorial highway specifically the area between I ninety four and Libranoy the bill was introduced by Detroit State Representative Leslie Love. That's rather fitting as Franklin had that hit freeway of love Franklin died last August after an extended battle with pancreatic cancer. Another local brewery will be no more things to tipster.

That's right around the corner from seldom standard announced John's. It'll be open. You guessed it in the fall. I'll take a note here to say that Longtime Detroit right development watchers might remember that one time that building was going to be an audio equipment production facility for Shinola. I haven't heard any word in the last couple of years whether the Shinola project is moving forward and as usual when something Detroit development happens that has great fanfare but it then fizzles folks don't say anything and hope you'll forget about it. Well we remember so they wanted to give you the heads up on a couple of neat things happening this weekend's he could plan one in the city and one in the burbs first stop. It's time to pull out your favorite kites because this Sunday is the third annual Detroit Kite Festival on Belle isle this year it will be held on the Belle isle cricket field.

We're GONNA talk about. We're GONNA talk about ducks. We're GONNA talk about bread and we're going to talk about dumpling so first. Let's Talk Duck. You went out to know vise toasted oak and I understand that's a hotel Barba restaurant in a hotel out there by twelve oaks mall toasted oak is a market and grill inside the baronet Renaissance Hotel near Twelve Oaks Mall. Okay so let's start. I mean the big thing is the duck kazaks the showstopper but what do you think about the place coming up sure this is actually my first visit to toasted oak so I had a lot sekine. It's a casual place but it tries to put on some a little fancier errors okay so that upscale scale that upscale casual thing that tends to be a thing nowadays where you don't have to dress up but the the the food is a little bit nicer a nicer food but then the cocktail menu was on a tablet okay. You don't seem to be a fan of this seemed a little tacky. Okay either your casual or upscale but you can't mix and match elements of both kind of clashes yeah. I'm not much of a tablet I myself I mean everybody's got their own preferences right but when I C. tablets I think applebee's <hes> Olive Garden Church. I'm not a big Fan. I mean although we'll fully admit like your personality. I'm personality. We're used to going to like <hes> the Candy Bar or keys laying or things like that where. It's extremely curated kind of craft cocktail menu and they had some good drinks but just the way they were presented on. This tablet was felt a little out of touch all right all right well. Let's get into the food what this is. Why why we're here so kick us off <hes> I started with a little bit of a mishap I ordered a soup and it was garnished with wild mushrooms but the mushrooms had sand in them so I had to send the suit back? Every bite was crunchy with with grit that's not that's not a good start. Did they not <hes> they offered me a salad too to replace it which which was fine okay all right and <hes> so let's get to the main course here. We're talking duck yeah so good ducts worth traveling traveling for for sure and this is not your average duck. This is actually an exclusive partnership with fairway packing toasted oak his serving fairways dry aged doc which has been dry aged for at least fourteen days. We'll fairways behind and a lot of things I was actually at the our best Detroit Party <hes> over the weekend and I believe I learned this fairway. At least I saw the hats and everything seems like fairy. Fairway was providing the meats for the <hes> red coach Tavern Okay right coach tavern table and that was of course very tasty so great ingredients here yeah so the duck was great. <hes> the skin was nice and crispy and well rendered and had kind of like a a vacancy vibe to it <hes> with that salty smokey flavor nice and crispy all the fat was rendered out <hes> the duck breast itself under the fat skin was not overcooked. It was great what that is really a fine line that you've got a ride with that stuff. Overcook like medium tops bucked Ed medium rare preferred so before we get into the desert what was kind of the vibe of this place kind of the decor. How'd you feel about? I mean there's some really great reviews on yelp about this place. It's been around for a while. <hes> the tables were there wouldn't tabletops no no tablecloths. There is a large fireplace that <hes> is double sided so one side is in the restaurant and the other side is in the lobby of the hotel. That's pretty nice touch yeah <hes> signs on the walls <hes> <hes> so like I said kind of a casual feel <hes> presenting a little bit more upscale food all right all right and you know there. There's been a ton of reviews of this place. I've heard a lot of people talk generally really good about it but <hes> before we let goes since you the entire thing. Let's let's talk dessert. I ordered their booty. No which is you know Italian style pudding and it was served in a jar so jars. I mean this isn't this is not about this place right. No not a thing that's. L. Unique to here by Oh and I wish restaurants stop serving things in jars. They're hard to eat out of the spoon was barely longer than the jar so every bite. My knuckles were dipping into the whipped cream <hes> making it hard to eat and messy restaurants. Stop serving things in jars. It's not good for anybody. That's like that's almost like a plaintive. Ask like a sad like please just stop over it. I was over at five years ago all right so from duck onto bread. This one's really accessible to people so kroger as I understand it has a new line of all natural European artisan bread. I you know we tried this one out because there's so the people who like you know we we. We talked about the news place opening or some niche place but let's be honest. Kroger is everywhere pretty much. Everybody shops there so this is something that's kind of Nice seems to be a shot at being nicer and fancier but accessible uh accessible to everybody yeah for sure. Kerr's got one hundred twenty stores in the state and I went to the Kroger at Stevenson and twelve mile okay. There's a little later in the day so the selection was limited but I did get a nice <hes> variety of breads <hes> and tried them all all right. So how did you try and what will your what was your process here. Did you do like olive oil. Did you do but what are you. What are what did you do depending on the bread? I did different topics for each of the breads so I did a Shibata and topped that with a a I taught that with some Cheddar and some Salami and that was really nice there was a multi grain curry which I just spread with some fancy butter. <hes> there is a sour dough petard and I cut it into slices and spread it with a fig preserve and <hes> added some slices Upper Shuto. You're making my mouth water and then there was a cranberry chocolate heavy which I- drizzled with be raw honey <hes> specifically there Florida orange blossom honey and then topped it with a slice of Murray's double cream Brie well randy first off. You should always be invited to everybody's house because these sound like absolutely great pairings. How did they had the bread? Stand up yeah. The Tobacco was nice and Chewy. It's got like a thick crust area inside. I like that one. <hes> the Multi Green Curry is not my style. It's got all sorts of you know seeds and Crunchy bits inside so I just don't like that style of bread into that. If you're into that yeah it was well it it was well executed but not for you. Is that what you're exactly okay perfect. <hes> the sour dough was it was a nice dense bread but it didn't really have that sourdot Tang that you get in really good sour does do you think maybe that was because of the time of day or it could be. I went later..

"A piece of Detroit real estate news that made us say, holy crap. There's a penthouse loft apartment in mid-town. That's on the market for a cool one point four million dollars. It's in the Willy's overland, loft building on Willis street, right next door to the original Avalon, bakery, and coffee, shop, the free says the loft is actually two units combined into one on the building's fifth and sixth floors, the specs on this. When are three bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms nearly twenty seven hundred square feet plus another fifteen hundred for the terrace, which offers views of downtown, Detroit, and the ambassador bridge. It's got a custom built steel staircase. A two story main space with Florida ceiling windows and a galley kitchen finished in walnut. Willie's lofts is housed inside a former dealership for the Willy's overland an early four hundred Jeep that was built and headquartered in Toledo, Ohio, the conversion to residential loss was completed about a decade ago with the addition of two stories. Not included in that list. Price is a four hundred seventy five dollar monthly condo fee will link to the free story on daily Detroit dot com. From the high demand for a million dollar, plus Lofton midtown to a new study that shows people who rent in metro-detroit are looking to leave town apartment list dot com has new data. That shows that people who are renting in our region are the second most likely in the nation to search to leave the area fifty percent of searches for housing by people in metro Detroit are for places outside of the region. Demand is very uneven after all in metro Detroit, some areas, usually the walkable more urban places like greater downtown Detroit. What you can't seem to build enough places to serve the demand, and there are waiting lists. The top cities people in metro Detroit, are looking to leave to Cleveland Cincinnati and Grand Rapids. I thought it was interesting to put these two stories together spend because actually I've, I've toured those Willy's overland lofts spaces before they're absolutely beautiful. But there's been a lot that has been sitting on the market until recently, and then it just starts starts to move, but they are beautiful spaces. And then you put. That right next to some stats like this, where it's like, really positive about Detroit, but the region, there's a lot of people can leave. Yeah. Absolutely. I mean I would love to see, you know, deeper drill down into that. But I think, you know, you're right that people, you know, we're, we're seeing really hot rental markets are places like Ferndale down here in midtown in Detroit. But, you know, you'd suspect out in the suburbs, you know, rental apartment buildings and stuff like that, that, that don't have any kind of walkable amenities or any, you know, access to a nearby downtown. I think people are, you know, you know, look, younger people don't wanna live in those in those kind of areas, we keep reading about that over and over again. It's there's no secret, well, and the other thing, I think leaders and this is a stat I think they need to grab onto to really embrace this change is that forty three percent of families now rent their homes across America that isn't just like a Detroit thing that's a national change. In fact, more people are renting now than in the last fifty
