And so you're in Detroit. You're in just your district for you and Spivey's district. Yeah. Okay, So, um, on these sinkholes in the lights Are you saying that the lights of burned out or they're not there? We had four street lights on our block took him down for l e D lights.

"With an organization this big, and when you're dealing with high school, kids everybody's very passionate about it, and so she's taking some heat, but I think that she has actually navigated the waters pretty well she keeps saying that as is in line with the with everybody else. The main priority is education for these kids, but it's also. She went on to say that. We need the Colorado economy to be back. Back so she did. She did mention both of those things. That's a great point by you that Hey, the main priority is that we have to have kids back in class and in school now question is Gail. Is that what happens if you know say school down in Denver has an outbreak and they have to shutdown all online again. What does that look like for the rest of the conference? So they have a ton of what if scenarios that they're playing through the one good thing that high school football high school athletics have going for them is that there's not a ton of travel right when you talk about college and the pro's. They're having a go across. The Nation in high school were staying in Colorado. We have experienced pretty low numbers. Compared to some of the other state. Excuse me compared to some of the other states around the country, so that's going for them as well and you gotTA. You've got a CHASA commissioner and a chess, a commission board that is really pushing to get this done in whatever format that they can can do. one of the things that I was looking for for her to answer was. What's the plan that? That you submitted and she did that was one of the questions that she got. And she replied quickly back and said We'll release the finalized plan, but we'RE NOT GONNA have released any of the evolving plans as to be, and that makes all the sense in the world. Because you know, I've been talking about Dr Anthony Algae you know our epidemiologist in chief. He now is dealing in speculation, and unfortunately it all goes to credibility so I think it's very wise that you know. She keeps those plans under wraps because the sad reality of this entire scenario as you mentioned earlier tanner. Is that well yet? CHASA can make plans as we can. All make plans, but were not charged here. That nasty little critter known as Cova. is in charge right and that's exactly right, and the thing is that she can't get people's hopes up. Because I would be way worse for to come out and say, here's our plan. It's in for. Submission then somebody's going to be a bad guy right. Well. Somebody's GonNa say that make sense, but you know we got A. WE HAVE A lot of smaller schools here in northern. Colorado Ryan. We've got the Eaton's. The the plant valleys the the highland up and. we've got all these smaller schools that it's easier to operate with, but when you talk about chance that they're dealing with the entire state, so they've got schools ranging from all over the place, you know from schools with a senior class of twelve to schools with senior classes of thousands upon thousands, so they've got to try and find a middle, plan. But to your point about speculation, gail, that's kind of in the tough thing with all of this is that there was not a lot known. The early on in this is. that. We didn't know how to examine these numbers and I. think that where a lot of people are trying to find. Some hope is that when we first started this pandemic wh, we were discussing the we were discussing the not overwhelming the hospitals. And that was the big thing, and unfortunately that narrative kind of somewhat sneakily I will say has changed from not overwhelming the hospital to hammer. Record number of cases even if they are asymptomatic and we need to remember, that's not exactly the same thing. That's actually nowhere close to the same thing. To, the climber, my friend, right and I don't mean to get up I mean. If you want to hear me on my soapbox, you knock on. but but speaking with mayor. Gates I know you've talked to them to. We've got six six hospitalizations right now in Greeley and they're keeping an eye on that particular with that You Know Open Air Food Court. He's keeping as are other city officials, keeping a very close eye on that, but that we are talking about two parallel tracks. Number of cases is one thing. Thing yes, that's a number, but as you mentioned tanner, what we really need to look out for is number of hospitalizations. Yeah, and I think we're lucky here. In Northern Colorado that we've got a lot of elected officials that understand that, and that's what they're basing their decisions on Now like we said, we've still got restrict. We've got pretty restrictive guidelines still in place. Four July. Who knows what August August Mike Bradley? Who knows what What new information about this virus we will have because we're still I. mean this is still pretty new virus I know that there are different vaccines that are getting funded out the Wazoo with the money and and everything that goes into that, so who knows isn't there in gale, isn't there some called operation warp speed going on right now? For a couple of them, so, but the problem is i. mean you can only. Fast track a fact zine a so far and if I'm not mistaken, the last vaccine took five years for it to work its way through the system. Now that said we might see more progress made, but once again I just think covert nineteen is a reality. It's going to be with us for a long time. We won't even talk about the first versus the second way for right and I I D- I don't disagree with you at all and with that being said. It's let's say five years. We can't continue life in this way for. Business as president, trump has had the entire time that hey, the cure can't be worse than the cancer over the Cova nineteen right, and so that's where I think that tying all back together I think that's where Chaz is really really pushing to say we don't know how long this is going to go on. We have to get a plan into place. That could be effective for now could be effective for next year. whoever who knows, but they might get a plan that we can't keep disrupting these kids, lives and their livelihoods. For much longer so I. Respect what Rhonda's Do and Look I've got an interview request in for her, so maybe we'll get caught back up again once I. Talk With Rhonda and push her a little and talk exactly what this plan looks like, but I appreciate you having me on gale, and now and absolutely always my pleasure tanner as you know here on. Itching to rich and to get this role, and we've actually got a highschool awards. award show happening next Thursday from five to eight PM.

"Gail continues now and thirteen ten KFI. Yesterday to reconnect and sit down with a preps director Tanner swint, and what a fortuitous conversation! Indeed it was because we were talking about the future preps. Well unfortunately at that point in time, and it could still well be the case future of high school sports, still kind of kind of up in the air, but little. Did we know that Colorado High? School Activities Association Chasa Commissioner Rhonda blamed for Green would take to twitter yesterday to answer a couple of questions while it turned into the equivalent of a digital free for all Q and eight swint in this morning tanner morning gale, and yeah, you're exactly right. It did really turn into the and I was joking with A. High School writer actually said. Yeah I'll take questions. Okay, every answer is I'll let you know later on, so it was. It was a little bit a little bit of that, but yeah, we did get some information at least Rhonda. In terms of win high school athletics are going to get started again all right, so do tell us spill the beans here because everybody wants to know I'm sure the kids, the coaches, the parents everybody. We're just Jones for sports. Oh, there's no doubt about it. In high school politics especially here in northern Colorado are so popular and so needed That's that's what a lot of small towns they strive on it and I know you. You know that Galas is these high school athletic regardless of of Sport, but the Big One we talk about this is football as it is obviously the most, you know most at risk when it comes to contact sports, and that's where a lot of people like you know. If you remember the chance task force released well football's high risk in basketball and wrestling, obviously our high risk sports. They broke it down from low to moderate high. that. Had everybody just terrified that we thought that was the cancellation of everything wasn't going to happen. Then run blind for green came back out and said Hey, relax. We are putting together a plan for things to start in the fall. She got a couple of interesting questions out. Obviously, the big one yesterday was. Hey wins the timeline I've been here in mid-july. What is that and she said? That's the estimated time line but they're waiting on the state health department They're waiting on the education officials agenda resuming education is the priority, and we will support and complement the direction of our member schools when they have definitive Rhonda talked about that one of the other questions that came up a lot is hey, what about switching since baseball is? is just a moderate risk and so as track what? What about switching the fall and spring sports to wait, that was the one where I think that. If you read between the lines, a little bit that that that Rhonda kind of put that out, it's not going to be a possibility. Somebody asked. Hey, there's a couple of other states that have done this. She said no, not there's actually been to knock it down but everything's still on the table, but if you read between the lines, I don't think that's going to be an option. As of right now. They've submitted a plan to the state the state offices. For approval so if that gets approved, we're all systems go, but that was another question that people had was what happens as soon as one kid test positive and she went back to just wait exactly what they're doing now. Because Gale, there are teams that are practicing. They are not social distancing it practices AS Roma's mentioned. They are full boards at some of the stuff So what happens when one of them gets tested? She says state and local health guidelines for reporting contact tracing a quarantine. We'll be strictly adhere to. Once we resume, which is exactly the same protocol that they're following now so. Still some stuff up in the air, but it's always good in this time especially for over sharing and I think that's what Rhonda was trying to trying to do yesterday and trying to calm some nerves. Now you and gale know that this could all change with the drop of A. Hat could just mean time. It could be absolutely This conversation could be useless by noon today, but I don't expect that. I expected. This plan will get approved. They've been working diligently with the state health officials and really. We go back to the financial burden gala. No, this is something that you've covered a ton on on your program in the economy and everything that goes into that, but sometimes people don't think about highschool on folks as a money driver, it absolutely is, and they're bound. They're trying to bounce back from missing the spring season and the end of the winter. Season So? They are pushing to even get fans in the stands, Gail, because they wanting that revenue and they're wanting to do it in a safe way. Obviously, that's their first goal is to get high school athletics and activities back on track, but they do need to make up for that financial burden that they lost in this spring and the end of the winter season, so I expect. Expect at a push everything, they can to have athletics. We will have some form of high school in Athletics I. Don't think that's doubt whether that's just golf or whether. That's golf softball and and a couple of other exports I don't know, but we will have high school athletics, the big one up in the area now football still yeah, exactly well, and you know it is that. Ever present challenge that balancing act between the financial aspects and the hits that so many institutions schools businesses, small businesses across the board had take from have taken from a financial perspective but balancing.

Our reservoirs and Outside of a Swim Beach the vessels, a three chambered vessel, meant to transport people in in gear, and we don't allow these these know four dollar. Blow up inner tubes from Walmart because. They're not as sound might hope they would be. And you know if you get out too far, and then the tube leaks, and you're not a very good swimmer. the yourself in jeopardy, so and just the sheer number of people we cannot. Allow that because we can't keep track everybody so biggest. Drowning here some kind of major incident just due to overcrowding the water. Thankfully, know a lot of our water water capacity. We can control by our parking capacities. They go hand in hand. Though we only so many votes on the reservoir overseen a really large uptick as you know and stand up paddle boards and Kayaks. That's really the the biggest increase we've seen you on the. It's obviously it's causing user conflicts with the boat ramps out on the water. You and the wind comes up because we're in the foothills here. Colorado gets windy and we get win burst. You know the folks rather reservoir and its high wind gusts come up, and there's no way of fighting on an inflatable paddle boards. They get blown ashore like a flock of geese and. Retrieve a bunch though there's a lot of safety hazards out there that new powder borders just don't don't understand. Is there any talk of perhaps a creating paddle borders zones closer to shore? Because you know you've got those surf boats. The bowel is up in the air. It's tough to see and scanning scanning scanning all the time, but. Sometimes. Particularly Saturdays and Sundays, those paddle boarders out in the middle of the rest seems to me that that's a that's a pretty I don't put themselves at risk, it seems. They are that's one of our biggest challenges. multi-use resort horse tooth, one of the upsides to force reservoir has a lot of coves. Get into so if you're still stand up paddle boarding places, you launch your paddle board. You could be a cove and stay in a cove, so we're trying to do a better job. Educating our visitors on on how to properly paddleboard with the safe and safes. Areas are one thing that we are working on by implement next year. If you've been down to Florida, they have kayaking trails right coaster cynical. Cynical starting implementing some of those ideas and we have a better more defined trail for them and give them some safe areas. Unfortunately, you know you talk to folks that boat ramp staff the main by the water, especially when it's coming up and and people don't always make good choices, and so we're always going to battle that but we're doing the best. We can to do that, but ultimately you. You know visitors have a say in what they do and kind of create their own jeopardy. At times we're trying to eliminate that, but will never be one hundred percent right right mark. coughlan is horse to a district manager Mark I. Know You've got a lot on your plate a lot to get to today, but need to ask you now. We hear tell that they're lowering the lake eighty feet to work. Work on something at the bottom is that. Is that true? Yeah, you gotTa Love how things out and how accurate things portray you dropped forty feet, which is half of what what's out there and so and the reason we're doing that is the water's going to drop now and there's there's two reasons for that one of their building a secondary outlet structure at one of the Dan City for Collins. Takes Water Out to treat for the city for Collins and there's only a single pipe that goes through there, so they want to put a a redundant system they're. They're getting ready to build chimney hall reservoir, and there's some things upstream by and reservoir to reduce some piping in Hartson infrastructure for that to happen so thankfully the reclamation in northern water. They're doing this project on the same year. And so that's GonNa Occur. Occur in July which stop water coming in, and so we started dropping now in our boat ramps will stay over boat ramps water through through mid September then we'll probably one or two boat ramps from mid September through October and the water starts coming back up again in November, so it's going to go down, but will always have a boat ramp in the water. What about the Marina? Because my understanding is? The Marina has to close at fifty, three eighty five. Is that correct? Yeah they're about fifty three eighty, two's really when they when they kind of start going on land so That's the way up to folks. Glenn Worth and his staff to to figure out when a good time. To start pulling boats out. I think everybody who has who has slipped they're. Kinda understand that is coming That'll be later on this summer. It's not going to happen. You know the next month by any means, and really you know we're in close contact with northern water for the the water, and where we're at projections, wise as far as how fast can drop and win, you know and those folks have have have an elevator where they need to start. Moving vessels out there, so we've been in close contact with them so hopefully be a smooth transition you go. That's so good to hear Kudos to all of the Rangers. Because you spoke of the fact that a lot of it is education based and I am just amazed at their composure, and they're calm when you're dealing with a combination of votes, alcohol, testosterone, and sometimes flat out stupid. They do an amazing job. Great thank you know..

"Restrictions eight. Oh eight now thirteen ten KFI, a thirteen ten, Kfi a dot com northern Colorado's voice mornings with Gail live and. And local the the auto collision specialist studios, but with that a boom in visitation rights Kevin Dugan and the Fort. Collins Colorado and come some safety concerns because Mark Coughlan. Horse Tooth district manager I I gotTa tell you Mark I have never ever? I've been going to horse two threads for eighteen years I have never seen at this busy with multitude of kayakers paddle boarders and guilty as charts surfers. Good Morning. Gail you're absolutely right. Yeah I've been with accounting twenty six years in our average. This visitation around horse teeth, reservoirs tooth mountain is about one point two million visitors a year there where she threads for a third busiest reservoir in the state of Colorado. You Know Chatfield is number. Two employee blows number one as far as visitation on on reservoirs. This year even though we're busy, we've been in the past our visitation. This year is about forty percent of kind of across the Board for day use and a and boating and such, so yeah you. What's your feeling is absolutely right we are. We are busy on a normal year, but let alone during a the pandemic as it were we're. We're seeing our visitation even higher about forty percent higher. What do you attribute that to and other lakes and reservoirs that are open experiencing that same increase? I think there's a couple of contributing factors. One is certainly aglow, flung at front range. I think at about happy over visitation is from out of county in a in a fair amount of. Get people are from well county out your way. They like the recreate. I think there's a very. There's a shortage of water in Colorado. It's a fairly dry state. There's very few natural lakes over most were bodies. Waters are reservoirs. You know we have the populations, and then you have people that are or furloughed or out of work or not in school, and people just want to get outside and and I. Don't blame on the same way you. You know my wife and I do the same thing. I'M GONNA chance. We go outside and recreates I. Think People are taking advantage of that, so it's a combination of things that are going on right now and I think we're gonNA feel that for a while. This is probably really for us a snapshot in the future you know four or five years out. I can't help a believe. This is going to be a normal occurrence for us. And I think to. There's you know so many other attractions for example water world isn't open and I can't help but think that that. Leads to the overcrowding. We are seeing because I gotta tell you mark. It gets a little bit frightening on the weekends. Because unfortunately you've got voters that really don't understand You know the rules of the road so to speak the rules of the lake and you've got. Said kayakers and handlebars Porter's safety is obviously a concern. It isn't. That I point is that you know a lot of US sports play. There's no sporting events. There's no place to go social gathering. Some people are taking advantage of the recreation areas. In you're right? There's a fair amount of new voters. A lot of new boat sales this year as well as RV sales in the RV sales are up about six hundred percent RV reynolds up about four hundred percent in the same goes for boating. You know there's a lot of dealers i. know that are having a hard time keeping boats in stock, so we're seeing a lot of new voters across the state. You know we're we're. A big part of our job more parties, visitors safety You know the state of Colorado for example. They've had sixteen drownings already this year. And the state of Colorado, the record was last year two thousand, he was in two thousand and nineteen at eighteen drownings I'm pretty sure it will pass out this year, so everybody in our field on is doing any kind of water based recreation their number. One priority right now is water safety. We have four but rangers to. We try to run patrol early morning to late.
"district manager" Discussed on The Ken Coleman Show
"Careful. Here some flowers. Okay. So I want to ask for a raise or bone, and so, but because I went up so quickly of the ladder so I've been with the company almost three years, and I started a part time twelve dollars, our personal rights and now i. Car Sixty K. Year all within two and a half years, but I'm still the lowest paid because they were able to. Well you mean lowest district manager of all the other district managers. How do you? How do you know this information? But I thought. Okay listen. There's a reason I asked that okay. The reason I ask that because. The the answer to your question is you're going to have to do your homework on the company finances and you've been resourceful enough to find out what everybody else's making, and you also have determined. That the reason you came back I the person that is paid to least, and that means they're hurting financially, so the thirty thousand foot in the air answer is not until they get healthy. Because it's it's. It's like spitting in the wind if you go to them for a raise when they just can't even consider it. Feel like you've burned that that opportunity as opposed to. Being grateful and I know you are, but let's get some perspective. I would be focusing right now on the fact that you're back to work while others aren't so you're technically making more money than those people are because they're not even working. Okay you got a company car. You were promoted really quickly. So it stands to reason that what got you there. Will keep taking you up the ladder once. Post cove economy, and the company gets healthy again I. think that's a reasonable thing to believe. I. Do believe that, so the answer him ready to promote me. I think they are and and what I think you gotTa do is just go. Hey, I'm gonNA. Make sure that I don't flame out right now physically. Right that's what I'm concerned about will, but that's why I kind of wanted them to say. Hey, you gotta make some changes. We appreciate how you're. You're just you're. You're killing it, but we don't want you to kill yourself. Right so I'm hoping you know I I would. As my second letter and I'm so easy going and. Say Yes to everything although you can't. You need to learn how to say no. Your life depends on it, and I'm not joking and so I think right now. You need to put up some boundaries. They love you. They need you. You're credibly viable. You're valuable enough to not go to the hospital with heart attack, type, feelings and pains, and then I want to put up some boundaries say no get healthy. They're literally physically healthy in the job. The second thing is keep your keep your ear to the ground. When things get better say hey, I want to keep growing here. I'm so thrilled to be here. I want to keep growing. I want to grow my influence and obviously grow my income..
"Welcome back my friends to the big book podcast. My name is Howard and I'm an alcoholic sober since nineteen eighty eight one day at a time in this episode the Fifteenth Story from the Personal Stories Section of the first edition of alcoholics anonymous published in nineteen thirty nine. It's entitled the salesman and was printed only in the first edition of the big book. It's one of those stories that listeners may be hearing for the first time that prominently featured Dr Bob and other early members of a personally helping another alcoholic achieved sobriety and now the salesman I learned to drink in a workmanlike manner when the law of the land said I couldn't and what started out as a young man spun became a habit which in its later existence laid me by the heels many a time and almost finished my career teen years. Were uneventful with me. I was raised on a farm but saw little future in farming. I was going to be a businessman took a business. College course acquired a truck and a stand in the city market of a nearby town and started off. I brought produce from my folks place and sold it to city customers and there were plenty of them with bulging pocketbooks. Back of me was the normal life of a farmer son. My parents were unusually standing people. My father was a lifelong Conrad till the day of his death. The business theory I'd learned in college was now being practiced and I was equipped beyond many of my competitors to be materially successful soon. I had expanded until I was represented in all the city markets and also in another city in nineteen twenty one we had the forerunner of the later depression and my customers disappeared successively. I had closed my stands and was finally wiped out all together being a young man of affairs I had begun to do a little business and social drinking and now with time on my hands I seem to do more of it following a year of factory work during which time I got married. I got a job with a grocer as a clerk. My Grocer employer was an expert winemaker and I had free access to his cellar. The work was monotonous in the extreme behind the counter all day when I had been used to driving around attending a business meeting people and building for what I thought was a great future I marked to a milestone the death of my father. I missed greatly. I kept hitting the wine with just occasional use of liquor leaving the grocery I went back into the produce business and out people went back to liquor again and got my first warning to quit before it got me. I was anxious to get with a concern. Which would give me an opportunity to build up again and landed a job. With a nationally known biscuit company I was assigned to a good business region covering several important towns and almost at once began to earn real money in a very short time. I was the star salesman of the company winning a reputation as a business getter. Naturally I drank with my better customers for on my route. I had many stops where there was a good business but I had things rather well under control. And in the early days of this job I seldom wound up my day's work with any visible effects of drinking. I had a private brewery at home which was now producing fifteen gallons a week most of which I drank myself. It is typical of the attitude. I had toward alcohol at that time. That when a fire threatened total destruction of my home and garage I rushed to the seller and rescued my most precious possessions a keg of wine and all the beer. I could carry and got pretty indignant when my better half suggested that I had better get some of the needed effects out of the house before it burned down. My home. Brewing gradually became a bore and I began to carry home bottles of powerful bootleg whiskey starting with a half pint every night and winding up with a cord as my daily after allowance. For Time I kept on the job. Spacey my drinks and route and very little of them in the morning hours. I just couldn't wait until I got home to drink. In a very short time I became an all day drinker chain store managers and quantity buyers. Were both my guests and hosts and every now and then we had prodigious parties finally in a reorganization shakeup resulting in new district managers with a pretty poor territory. Deal for me. I gave the company two weeks notice and quit. I had bought a home but in the year and a half following I had little income and finally lost that I became satisfied with just enough to live on and by the liquor I wanted then. I landed in the hospital when my car was hit by a truck. My car was ruined entirely that loss and my injuries. Plus recriminations of my wife sort of sobered me up. When I got out of the hospital I stayed sober for six weeks and had made up my mind to quit. I went back in the business where I had been successful salesman but with another company when I started with this concern I talk things over with my wife and made her some very solemn promises. I wasn't going to touch another drop of liquor by this time. Prohibition was a thing of the past and saloons and clubs where I was well known as a good customer and a good spender became patrons. I rolled up my business until I was again. A star but after the first four months on the new job. I began to slip. It is not unusual in the drinking experience of any man that after time of sobriety he comes to the conclusion that he can handle it in. No time at all liquor again became the most important thing in my life and every day became like another steady drinking in every saloon in club on my route I would get to headquarters every night in a top heavy condition. Just able to maintain equilibrium. I began to get warnings and was repeatedly fired and taken on again. My Wife's parents died about this time. In unfortunate circumstances all my troubles seemed to be piling up on me and liquor was the only refuge. I knew some nights I wouldn't go home at all and I did go home. I was displeased when my wife had supper ready and equally angry when she didn't I didn't want to eat at all and frequently when I underestimated consumption of the amount of liquor I brought home. I made extra trips back to town to renew the supply my morning ration when I started out with five double whiskies before I could do any business at all. I would go into a saloon trembling like a leaf tired appearance and deathly sick. I would down to double whiskies feel the glow and become almost immediately transformed in half an hour. I would be able to navigate pretty well and start out on my route. My daily reports became almost illegible and finally following arrests for driving while intoxicated and on job at that I got scared and stayed sober for several days not long afterward. I was fired for good. My wife suggested I go to my old home in the country which I did continued drinking convinced my wife. I was a hopeless case and she entered sued for divorce. I got another job but didn't stop drinking. I kept on working. Although my physical condition was such as to have required extensive hospitalization for years. I hadn't had a peaceful night's sleep and never knew a clear head in the morning I had lost my wife and became resigned to going to bed some night and never waking again. Every drunkard has one or two friends who have entirely given up hope for him but I came to the point where I had none that is none but my mother and she devoted soul had tried everything with me through her people came to me and talked but nothing they said some were ministers and others good. Church members helped me a particle. I would agree with them when they were with me and as fast as they went away. I'd go after my bottle. Nothing suggested to me seemed to offer a way out. I was getting to a place where I wanted to quit drinking but didn't know how my mother heard of a doctor who had been having marked success with alcoholics. She asked me if I'd like to talk to him and I agreed to go with her. I had known of course of the various cures and after we had discussed the matter of my drinking fairly thoroughly. The doctor suggested that I go into the local hospital for a short time. I was very skeptical even after the doctor hinted there was more to his plan than medical treatment. He told me of several men whom I knew who had been relieved and invited me to meet a few of them who got together every week. I promised I would beyond deck at their next meeting but told him. I had little faith in any hospital treatments meeting night. I was as good as my word and met the small group. The doctor was there but somehow I felt quite outside the circle. The meeting was informal. Nevertheless I was little impressed. It is true they did know psalm singing nor was there any set ritual. But I just didn't care for anything religious if I had thought of God it all in the years of drinking. It was with a faint idea that when I came to die I would sort of fix things up with him.
"district manager" Discussed on #QualityMatters
"A good and so but these are the things you gotta be careful about how you address Especially as you move up. The ranks is in. It's so tough. It can be very heartbreaking like you WANNA protect your people on one hand but then on the other end you've got to work with the customer and you've got these other requirements. It's how you can get pulled in so many durant so you know again. It goes to what our care to really is. We consider this guy who was so rude to us. And just think maybe he just wasn't ready for that probably. He's a great mechanic probably really cares about as employees. Yeah but it's just not right and so then it makes me think you know two episodes ago or three others that you know about the mission statement the mission statement. We have discovered in this process that each one of these shops is independently owned and operated. It's really hard to get a hold of Somme. I don't know who the district manager is that we're talking to. Maybe he owns both. He has to own bow shops for him to be able to. I don't know but there's some chain of management there. Yeah in you know. There's no mission statement that I can find and I spent a lot of time looking and there was kind of a mission statement for their owner operator group bright like hey we had this owner operator website and remission of this website for owner operators is blah blah blah blah blah So it looks like they haven't taken the time to make a mission statement for their whole chain probably because each one is individually owned and operated in. They're expecting that. But that goes to choosing your managers and choosing your owner operators. You know it feels like through our experience that they just say. Oh you WANNA do it okay. Great give us a cash. And here's how we're going to help you now and there's not a lot of which then itself. I mean really. I think most people assume that's the way most business operates is will provide a sheriff's you haven for dog it which only works. Everything's perfect right and things far perfect. You have to have something deeper that you rely on to get the job done and this district manager those vid lasting. Sat This district manager. While maybe he's not done was awesome job of explaining his his wine to or his mission to his facility. Managers he clearly has some very old school values. That rhyme is personal decisions and he's got something deeper to attach to. If you don't have that deeper something when things get rough what are you GonNa. What are you going to stick to? What are you gonNA unifier around? Yeah I I really think you know. Of course I don't have any say in the matter but the lube shop needs to consider having an overarching admission like we go and talk the hotel chain that we talked about that. Stephen Covey visited the global chain or whatever. National chain had its mission statement. Each location has mission statement that reflected that and the each department within the location had a mission statement and I think the this lube shop definitely and it could be that it's just this one location could be that's not functioning and I know that this location particular has changed management several times. That's why I keep getting better now and I'll try it again so it could just be that little one location. I really haven't visited any other locations for this particular company So it was just an interesting. You know we look through. We looked at everything through the eyes of this quality world and mission statements unleashes management. So as we were going through all this we both said that we really gotTa talk about this. Folks can learn a lot from it. You can learn so much from these things well and it goes back to on our previous episode when we were challenging you to make a mission for your department you know. If you're an independently owned franchise make a mission statement if you don't have one and even if your over arching you know brand has one still make one for your. Don't just copy. There's I think that was great with the hotel. Did they said well? We're in this location and we know what these people need you. So make one for your location for what your people need there. Now if you didn't have already quality matters x-ray listening..

Panera Bread/Au Bon Pain: Ron Shaich (2018)
"Ron Shake isn't a household name like you say Howard Schultz but you could argue that. What Howard Schultz did for coughing Ron shake did for cheddar broccoli soup or the SEO cheese he's Bagel because like Howard? Ron Wasn't just focused on product. He was interested in creating a space of place where people could hang out for a long time. Maybe even have a PTA meeting or social gathering and really linger over that Bagel or cup soup. This is the famous third-place concept concept that both Howard Schultz and Ron shake wanted to tap into in. That's how Panera became one of the fastest growing restaurant chains in the world. In fact if you've invested the seven thousand dollars in Pinera stock in nineteen ninety nine. You'd be sitting on more than half a million dollars by two two thousand seventeen now. The thing is if you met Ron shake say in high school. This is not the path you've predicted for him. Ron Wasn't even interested in business. Is Passion was politics. His parents were raging liberals and Ron grew up going to rallies and volunteering on campaigns. All over New Jersey eventually went to Clark University where naturally he majored in politics and he was quickly elected to student government. And that could have been Ron's life life except for one day when something happened to Ron and a group of friends something kind of small but something that when you look back on it probably probably changed his entire life. Yeah so we. We were in a local convenience store called store. Twenty four cross the street from the main entrance to the Clark campus and they accused US shoplifting and tossed us out cecily guys just being rowdy earnings or wild. No we were shopping but I came back to campus episode and I was in my dorm with a couple of friends and I said you know. Why are we shopping there? How they can they treat us like this? What supports that store? We said what do we need what we can we can do this ourselves. We can have our own convenience store and I said you know this isn't going to be that hard. Let's go do it. And we approach the university. They weren't so keen on this but I moved the question to student body They voted in support of it and I basically agreed to spend that summer between my sophomore and junior here opening this convenience store guy. Wow So. What'd you guys Sal We sold Everything from drinks to Munchies two cookies and candy and you know our assistant manager would come to my apartment at five in the morning and we actually would go to this deep discount supermarket and buy I don't know ten or fifteen baskets full of merchandise that we'd stocked the store with and We hired twenty or thirty different students to work there. I will be very franken. Saint Joe's more interested in that store than when I was in my own academically. And and your guy who's all still focused on public policy in government but I guess this it was Kinda cool you liked. He kind of liked doing business running a business. Yeah and and you know. I didn't see myself as that kind of guy and it took me a wile to make sense of that but in so many ways running a business is no different than campaign in fact a campaign is a the business that that essentially has one day in which it ends a business campaign that goes on and never ends so at this point in his life. Ron Wasn't quite sure what he wanted to do. Business or politics but people around him saw how how much he loved running that convenience store and a lot of people said. Hey why don't you get an MBA. So Ron did he enrol at Harvard. Business School in Nineteen seventy six. And when he finished unlike a lot of his classmates who went into banking or finance ron decided to go into retail and he took a job in the mid west and a place called held the original cookie company. Twenty stores in shopping malls We grew it to about one hundred and twenty five. I took the job as the third year of the NBA. What I mean by that is I took a job as a district manager? Basically Iran ten or fifteen of these cookie stores half the United States and I spent went My time running around the country and I ended up opening thousands of these cookie stores around the country so as certain point you're learning about the cookie business I guess and then at a certain point you get this idea like hey I can do this myself. I can have my own cookie store yes and and I can literally remember traveling Cross Indiana. I'm away to Fort Wayne Dope a new cookie store and it hit me and I said why are we opening this in a Mav. There's a huge opportunity open these in in an urban setting. Why don't we open one and I can remember going to my boss? I remember him taking me to meet. Beat the CEO of the company. Said I wanNA open an urban cookie. Store looks him and he says we don't do that here. We Open Mall based retail units. I thought to myself well. If you're not GONNA do it. I'd like to go do it. Why shouldn't we and I'm the Kinda guy by Sam going to do it? I want to go do it and it led led me to actually resigning my job and I moved back to Boston and I started looking for real estate and the reality was. Nobody would Li space for cookies. Find any sir for cookie store because they thought it wouldn't make enough money to pay the rent. 'cause I had no credibility. Yeah I had no real money I had you know no balance sheet to sign a lease and so I went to my dad and I said I I want my inheritance. Whatever it's going to be I want the opportunity to use it and I had about twenty five thousand dollars Ned Essentially let me. He gave me seventy five thousand dollars and that one hundred thousand dollars became the GRUB stake the equity. That allowed us to build that. I four hundred square-foot cookie store. Wow in downtown Boston. What did you name the store? We named it the cookie jar and I can remember. We took the toll house recipe. Right it off the bag. I bought a small mixer and I would pass out cookies in front of the stories that we were building. It and I'd start to adjust the recipe based on what I learned talking to customers and and you were the baker. You were making cookies yourself. Yeah we opened. There were three employees. I made it was me and to folks I will never forget at that day. It just seemed like people never stopped walking a coming in and purchase fifty thousand people day going by and I'll never forget it. I got to the end of the day walking past or foot traffic. Yeah but I got to the end of that at first afternoon. We opened one o'clock guide and by six we closed and my back was hurting. Oh and legs were hurting. And I can't in the money and I I realize we only brought in four hundred dollars. I mean you forget when we talk about business what it is the self the four hundred batches of cookies buck each and the amount of energy and work that goes into

Disassociated: Christian Longo
"Christian did Michael Longo was married at age nineteen and he was the father of three by the time he was twenty six originally from Michigan and raised as Jehovah's Witness nece Longo did not adapt well to his life as a husband and father his wife Mary Jane Stayed Home with their children while Longo was expected to provide for their family but he quickly turned to a life of crime after getting into trouble for check fraud. Longo took his family on the run in a stolen minivan Dan but after promising to turn over a new leaf he continued to steal and to scam for money the Longo family moved from Michigan to Ohio Ohio to Oregon then their four year old son Zachary and three year old daughter Sadie were found dead in the waters of lint slow the bodies of Mary Jane their infant daughter Madison were recovered. Just days later join us at the quiet end today for the story of a young family destroyed by the evil acts of compulsive liar and manipulator Christian Longo the lives of this young families started out with hopes and aspirations and but ended in tragedy and despair. The only one left to explain what happened was the one who could never be trusted or believed but we can debate causations nations and examined missed opportunities in our efforts to understand these murders of Mary. Jane Zachary Sadie and Madison Long Ago did an Oregon beer for this. I did one of the brewers you really liked. 'cause they make a bunch of wild sales this cascade escape. Bruin and we're going to have some cascade Blueberry Kale. I Spear Deep Reddish Purple Colour Pinkish head. Don't don't see too many for me pink heads now but I'm GonNa have to be honest here and say that I have had this fear and I did enjoy it. I know you have on telling our listeners okay and it's got a nice earthy blueberry aroma a tart. Lou Berry taste a little bit of that earthy funk in there and it's a dry beer with to settle tartness is spear cascade makes it a lot of Nice while Dale's the the problem is rather expensive. They Act Pricey but they're great. Wait for a special occasion for someone you love. That's why we got. It could be more special than have a beer with you. I can't think of anything more special than having. NBA With you here we are see right so we'll open his beers up who had on down to our friends. At the quiet sounds good all right. Follow me down to the quiet end will enjoy the spear and share it of course I we will. We'll share it with ourselves and we'll share with the rest of the folks down here. That's right so on Easter at our story today. I mean I'm going going to say it's a difficult one but there's also a lot to learn from it. It's kind of an amazing remarkable tale through some things to learn very tragic of course firsts so but I think to understand the lives of the family we might need to have some basic background to the beliefs and practices of Jehovah's Witnesses Yeah. I think that helps because that is a the disappointed story. It's a large part so Jehovah's Witnesses was founded in eighteen seventy nine by Pennsylvania businessman named Charles Russell Russell believed the second coming of Christ would occur in nineteen fourteen so Jehovah's Jehovah's Witnesses emphasize the coming into the world they reject blood transfusions because of the New Testament Command to abstain from blood and they don't vote they don't serve in the military they also don't celebrate any traditional Christian holidays and they don't celebrate birthdays. I remember before I started ready learning anything about Jehovah's way back in the beginning of my career. Hilo boy any office and I noticed from his chart that his birthday was the next day so I said to him happy birthday. He looked at me as mothers says we're Jehovah's Witnesses. We don't celebrate birthdays say you can't even say happy birthday. She was research pretty conservative witness. I guess she was very staunch. I don't know it's just hard for kids like that to not be able to celebrate what other kids are celebrating braiding and then they ran into some of those difficulties with interactions with other people and families. That weren't Jehovah's Witnesses. Oh absolutely I mean I think it's difficult perfect for the kids and it was definitely an influence on Christian longos childhood that followed him into adulthood or through so Christian Michael Longo born in nineteen seventy four in Iowa he was adopted as a child by Joseph Longo who married Chris's mother mother joy in the late Seventies. The biologic father divorced his wife Right. They didn't stay together so this year nineteen seventy four was an important one for for Jehovah's Witnesses because many of them expected Armageddon to happen in nineteen seventy five right so nineteen fourteen didn't happen obviously and and they came up with a reason for that not sure what the reason was then when the world didn't end in nineteen seventy five they also said well. We can't predict it exactly okay but the world is going to end so it's hard when you're calling for the end of the world and then that time passes you better come up with some reason right so I think it makes the people very skeptical and rightly so so in the nineteen seventy five terminus which is what some witnesses called the potential event was based on the analysis of Watch Tower Society Biblical experts who said that the year nineteen seventy five would mark the end of guides day of rest so they reason because God could be expected to go back to work once a day of rest was over what was going to happen to end the world could be expected to happen before the end of nineteen seventy five yes. It's a very complicated way that they were figuring that out which I don't think is that relevant to go into just as long as you know that I think you're on board with what would have been going on in the minds of people who were Jehovah's at this time to an extent so Chris was Joyce first trial and joy was a teenager. She was actually a teenage and h bride of an abusive husband according to joy when she was pregnant with her second child Chris's younger brother Justin. Her husband beat her in her abdomen with a chain gene trying to induce an abortion according to a psychologist Dr Steven share who would later evaluate Chris. The violence in his childhood destroyed enjoyed his sense of self worth this meant that after he became an adult Chris sought out the approval of other people in order to maintain his self esteem so Chris lied a and he stole in order to get approval yeah. It just seems like a simplistic explanation for how this guy acted behaved well. I certainly don't think that's the whole story but it's something can't be the whole story now of course not it's never one thing that affects the person or make someone who they are were. Berkshire fingered as well. I don't know if it was that simplistic but that was one of his things that he brought up so join divorced Chris's father when priests was just about four years old then she met Joe Longo in a store where she was working. Joe Was Athletic. He'd been a star wide receiver on the Morningside College football team in Sioux City until he was about ten years old. Chris's family was Roman Catholic in the nineteen eighties. Joe Longo became a district manager for a chain of retail detail stores and then he began to earn a good middle class salary. The family was financially comfortable and Chris got what he needed from his parents and seemed seem to be having a happy childhood at that point yet but then one day some Jehovah's Witnesses knocked on the rondos door joy let them in and she became quickly the interested in the faith so she began attending meetings and one when she went to the meeting she would take Chris in his younger brother along with her so so Chris and his brother became involved field service activity with joy by this I mean that they would spend hours going door to door to try to convert people into to Jehovah's witness religion now. I don't know how big of a thing that is now but it was certainly a big thing where and when I grew up we had Jehovah's Witnesses coming coming to our door at least a couple times a week where you're in a hot spot I we we had them at times but it it wasn't that frequent I did grow up in Michigan not that far actually from where the longos lived that might be it might have been hotspot yeah but you know it was funny is that when my older sister became a teenager she would purposely let the Jehovah's in and give them T- and talk to them just to irritate my mother because when they came by and it was my mother home she would have US hide and draw the curtains because she didn't want to have to talk to them so just kind of become a game when I come home homeschool. If these people were there my sister would be entertaining them until my mom came home from work and then after they finally went home because everyone was polite in front of them. My sister and my mother would have it out. Our would love to hear that discussion. It was kind of fun yeah so Chris it. His brother became involved in this activity and this meant that they would spend hours going door to door Christmas smart and really socially comfortable so it didn't take long before he was a speaker at the meetings and he began talking to people about his faith he really became something of a religious prodigy with his excellent public speaking ability and from the young age of eleven he'd be called up to do a Bible reading into explain Bible verses at their Kingdom Hall which is their Church Right now so Chris had definitely really the gift of Gab yes he could really charm people and convince people of almost anything you could and we'll we'll see as we talk later about uh-huh his crimes how facile he was with his language in how he could talk people out of things into thanks really quite remarkable. Yes yes yes for someone who really didn't even have a high school education right. He did have a gift so eventually stepfather. Joe Longo also joined the witnesses assists and as the Manga family became more involved with the witnesses.
