Julian did you know that the You know what the city's official landmark is the motto? I should say, Yeah, the city in a garden. Which is herbs and orto, which is Latin for sitting in a garden and Steve. You know what I found out is interesting. That was a marketing slogan if they came up with after the great fire of 18 71. And they were trying to attract people to Chicago. So they came up with this slogan Herbs and Ordos City in a garden to kind of make it look a little more attractive. You know, Chicago was right. Not looking too good back then. Were there many gardens at the time? Well, There probably weren't too many after the fire. But of course, has the plan for Chicago that brought a lot of gardens? Oh, sure, And and you know, roadways and boulevard with greenery, And you know that Uh, of course, was the brainchild of Daniel Burnham, Right. Architect and developer. Olmstead was mind a lot of those gardens as well. Um, for this week, you look at a few gardens in the city and I gotta tell you, Julian, I used to hang out at the Alfred Caldwell Lily pool. When I was when I was single and living in Lincoln Park. I want you to describe it for everyone. I just kind of knew it as the rookery at the time. Yeah, you know, it's kind of tucked away, uh, off of Fullerton Parkway, and you don't even know it's there unless you know somebody points it out to your or you learn about it, but Uh, it's on the National Register of Historic places, and it's just a beautiful pond. But it has waterfalls and rocks and you can hear the noise of the traffic lakeshore drive is like less than a football field away. And you'd hardly know because it's just so quiet and serene in there. It's just a beautiful place. It's really a remarkable spot, and I mean when I was single, and I was probably I was off on Monday or something. And I would just go walking around and I found it one day and it's so peaceful and in the fall there, you know beautiful a variety of ducks that you don't normally see around here or waterfall. I should say it's really in there are many people in there. I don't know if I just said that, but you're pretty much alone when you go in there. It's called the Alfred Caldwell Lily pool. It's right by Lincoln Park Zoo off bulletin Great place to check out that we also we're talking about the Chicago women's parking Garden not too long ago because the Clark houses there And there's some move to put a plaque up to recognize the Bishop. Ford helped to save that Clark house but tell me about the Chicago image Park as you said the 18 36 widow, Clark House. The city's oldest dwelling place If I'm not mistaken, and it's at 18th and Indiana, and, um, it has this helping hands Memorial that honors Jane Adams, of course, the pioneering social reformer. It's black. Granted. It's a sculpture garden, offset by the flowers and the colors that you see in this beautiful garden. It's not huge. It's kind of small. But it's just a hidden kind of secret place that all the locals there in the South loop know about. We're talking to WGN's Julian Cruz about city in the Garden, Chicago as we do our destination. Illinois segment. Okay, The last one seems to be the most I don't want. What's the word? I'm looking for? Julian the most inviting to people just happening by the South Merrill Community Garden.

It's this little garden that's nestled between apartment buildings on Chicago's South Shore. Uh, it's called the South Merrill Community Garden, and it's more than a garden. It's It's almost like a community center, and they have all kinds of programs with the park District for kids art programs.

J Call or text them and 51283605 90. Thanks for taking my call. Now March Melinda and more and more governors or adding new restrictions on their citizens You just heard in Fox. California's governor, Gavin Newsom, is adding more restrictions. What's the latest there? Melinda? Well, he announced that 41 out of the 58 counties are moving back to the most. Restrictive cove in 19 tear, which means those non essential businesses have to close their operations on this includes all of southern California. So Diego L. A. All of them are going to go back to non essential so that means I don't think the bars were ever open, but hairdressers Jim's florist, any of those kind of businesses are going to be closed again. They had already started rolling back on restaurants last week, so I'm sure that's probably more extensive. Now, with this going to the most restrictive covert 19 tear, Michigan's governor last night announced a three week shutdown of Michigan three weeks. No indoor dining, no bars, no bowling alleys, movie theaters. It's Cetera for three weeks, according to Democrat Gretchen Whitmer, Mark it is crushing for those businesses and I have a I feel for those people. But I think in a lot of cases you've got away The science versus the closing. I still contend with the closings. You could still have these places open if you wear the mask. If you socially distance But these orders are going to kill even more business. You're gonna put businesses out of the way. Well, here's the thing. California never really emerged from to reopen. They've been restrictive this whole time. Now they Uh, we're a little bit more lenient assed far as indoor dining when I was there. It was all outdoor. We couldn't go inside. I'm so far as I know that was still the case. Um So it's amazing to me that you can have these areas that restrictive. Michigan was still pretty restrictive, even though they loosen to some of theirs. And yet we're still having these huge number increases. Where there have been restrictions. So that says to me if California's having just about at the time being restricted as Texas is not being is restricted, do we really need the restrictions? Well in in in Michigan, that's the entire state is my understanding. It's not the county by county, which I believe if you have a county where it is hot, hot hot. You could do some of the things that the Michigan governor is doing, but the entire state. That's That's not good. You should you should be. If you don't have it in your area don't be so restrictive. Some members of the Legislature in Michigan are already moving to begin impeachment proceedings of the governor. Now That's a pretty high threshold to reach in the state of Michigan, But they announced today that's the direction they're going. And there is anger in California at Gavin Newsom The Wall Street Journal today as an editorial pointing out that he went to a big birthday party at a fancy French restaurant in San Francisco, with at least a dozen people on more than three households in attendance on November 6th. Clearly going against his own restrictions. Yeah, if you remember we gave you a little play by play of the restrictions that he was saying from then on, that was to cover Thanksgiving and it was no more than three households there. I think it was Captain Tin. You can't stay longer than two hours. You can only use.

"BJ so the Texas department of transportation they begin posting signs notices if you will and homeless encampments under bridges and yesterday right before crews are set to clean up the camps coming up Monday November the fourth that according to the governor's office here's a quote from Diane Hodges a spokesperson with text dot we've received direction from the governor that he will step up a step in and do something in these these areas to clean up the camps so there you go we're serving it to his direction by posting the notice today we're giving them a few days notice in order to you know get their belongings together able to remove them from underneath those under passes of bridges before the state crews move them now although the governor's office has acknowledged the that the Austin city councils homeless or ditch changes are a meaningful step of the office said in a statement to local news outlets earlier this month they would be getting involved in Austin's homeless issues and so there you go textile cruise going to clean it all up Welling Monday morning it would be in the mayor's best interest to work with the governor here any that's what he says he's going to do but we know he's highly resentful of this but this has to mean something I am I am glad that they're going to clear these underpasses I am it's an embarrassment but it has to lead to something that is going to ultimately be a better situation for the homeless in a better situation for taxpayers and residents Munger go the mayor told us we had approximately twenty three hundred people sleeping on the streets every night that needed a place to stay now this week he says that numbers more like closer to seven thousand nine what happened I don't know I I guess she's facing reality I mean they they've got to think about the people that are sleeping and Carl it's one it's one of two things either they're inflating the numbers hoping to get more state and federal dollars to help with the problem in their line of manipulating the numbers or the problem has gotten worse in the past few months under the mayor's watch has he created a situation where the numbers have more than doubled I gotta be honest with you I know we have a lot of homeless people and I haven't done anything that they haven't done any count myself I'll sure one about it but seven thousand that's inside of me are you you know you don't believe the mers accurate no you don't think the problem is as bad as he's described maybe somewhere in between twenty three hundred and seventy seven thousand maybe seven thousand seems high to me just to you know it's still hasn't gotten worse under the mayor's watch don't know don't know I'm trying to figure out what it is I guess is easy tried to inflate the numbers to get national attention to get you know some money involved that sort of thing is he trying to meet the threshold to get some kind of federal grant or has the problem gotten worse over the past too much of we lord of five thousand more to the area because of his you know hand outs in freebies and how soft we are on a violent panhandle if you think about a room a big auditorium full of seven thousand people you get kind of get a get a feel for how many people that is visualize that and visualize what we see out on the streets which is a lot doesn't seem like seven thousand all right so I I think that might be an inflated number all right so what you do you think the mayor's inflating the number the problem is not as bad it it it did it well and I'm not trying to downplay anything I'm just agreeing with the possibility religions become happy have the mayor on though I think you take and that'll for I'm I'm I'm not doing that by any stretch of imagination I'm not I'm I'm saying that I believe it I've I believe seven thousand I believe seven thousand I believe since he loosened the rules the ordinances we've had more come to town that's one thing I can think of all or again he seized like you the the scenario you suggested might be trying to inflate him to get some more money I don't know the mayor would really do that that be trickery at the at a at a level to get cash I'm not sure a city council would do that trick the people I have to get more money out of my thinking I'm so sorry I want said I believe of the past two months we have attracted five thousand more from across the country I don't believe he's right seven thousand large it yeah it might give mayor my it's it's his fault right he created the easy situation for them to come here so yeah mayor.
