"Todd Jeffries and Don Prior. Ladies and gentlemen, you have found the tide of Don show you could join us at 51283605 90 so Texas governor Greg Abbott disordered state lawmakers back to work in a special July session. The move comes after Democrats in the state House blocked the GOP s efforts to pass new voting restrictions. They did that by leaving so the Legislature couldn't come up with a core. Um Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick. Here's what he had to say about the Democrats being irresponsible. They walk out And that's anarchy. When you're elected to office. Do you have a responsibility to the Constitution and your constituents to show up? And if you lose a vote, be a man, be a woman? Take it on the chin. No word yet on what the agenda for the special session? Maybe. But Democrats vowed to keep fighting the Republican effort to change the state's voting laws. It is 5 50 Governor, Greg Abbott is taking a little heat this week from animal lovers across the state after he vetoed a bill that would have given greater protections for dogs against human abuse. Isaiah Carey is the Fox TV affiliate K R. I V from Houston has more on this story. At one point hashtag Abbott hates dogs was trending nationally on Twitter. That's because animal advocates across the country were shocked to find out. Texas Governor Greg Abbott vetoed a bill that would strengthen the law against those who leave dogs outside without adequate food or water. The law also says the owner can't leave that dog on a chain to retrain the animal or a tether with a weight on it. But said they were already state laws to protect dogs. And he also said the penalties of up to $2000 in jail time up to 180 days in jail was just excessive. 5 51 Now with a look at our money, here's business reporter Jessica Edinger, stocks are coming off another winning day on Wall Street, with the tech heavy NASDAQ opening this morning. At a fresh record high. The S and P 500 index only about 10 points away from its record. Fed chair J. Powell testified yesterday to a congressional committee. He didn't give any hints on when the Fed might cut back on asset purchases or raise interest rates to cool heated inflation. But he doesn't think any inflation will last them long. You see extremely strong demand for labor for goods for services. And you see the supply side caught a little bit flat footed and trying to catch up. You have a central bank that's strongly prepared to use its tools to to keep us around 2% inflation an episode like what we saw in the 19 seventies, and I graduated from college in 1975. I had a front row seat. I don't expect anything like that to happen. Fed Chair J. Powell the median price for an existing home Hit another record last month is home buying weekends. People just can't afford what's out there the fourth straight month of declines. You can blame it all on inventory just 1.2 million homes for sale..

Then Wednesday, we jump back up to 97 99 on Thursday. 98 on Friday summer in Texas has arrived just in time for all the summer camps out there. Yes, I know. A lot of kids made that long road trip to the to their summer camp, and I hope you come back with a good sunburn and a lot of stories to tell. Absolutely. And maybe a rash you can jump in at 51. 283605 90. So the city of Round rock is breaking ground on its new library. A this week, the city hosting a groundbreaking ceremony and the new library is going to be, uh, it's going to be much bigger than the city's current one by almost 20,000 Square feet. It is said to be complete with three floors each with outdoor space classrooms. Children's story time rooms, of course. P G. A. L Inc uh, they are the ones that designed this space. So the city is also building a big parking garage next to the library, something that Austin failed to do. Now why one outdoor space will be a rooftop garden there in Ron Ron, This is going to be nice. And according to the city's website, it's planning to put a screen on the parking garage adjacent to the rooftop space for movie screenings and community events. Now the location of this new building is at Liberty Avenue. That's just one block from the current library. They're in round Rock, Texas. The city unveiled the design just last month. The construction on the new library should be finished by 2023. The city will post construction updates on their websites. We have tried to see Austin's new library three times in row and three times in Iraq should say We have not been able to find parking anywhere, so we just said the hell with it. Well, you're not supposed to drive there. That's your first problem. That's exactly right. I'm doing it. Why you did that. Right? Well, I guess the primary difference and good for round rock. That sounds exciting. That sounds really beautiful, Neat. I guess the primary difference between their library in Austin's library is their library will not be used as a public restroom for the homeless. Is that happening? Uh, I'm sure it is. I couldn't tell you personally. I've heard it is you just said it was you said why haven't seen I have witnessed it personally. I've just heard that it's an issue jump in at 51283605 can't get in the place. State lawmakers asking Texas attorney General Ken Paxton to weigh in on whether or not Austin school District must accept money from parent teacher associations. The P T. A defined supplemental staff members during the 2021 around 21 22 school year. Now state Senator Larry Taylor is asking Pakistan if House Bill 15 25 an amendment. That requires school districts to accept pita money for those positions would be recognized by the A. I s d this coming school year? This has become very controversial in a few schools here in the A. I S D. Back In March, the ASD announced they would no longer allow the pita money to find staff positions House Bill 15 25 that goes into effect September the first of this year in Austin School. District Superintendent Stephanie Al Saadi has addressed the amendment in several meetings with pita leaders, and during those meetings, the superintendent said it would have no effect on the Austin school district's decision to not let pita money staff positions. Here's what Here's a quote, al Saadi responded. He would follow the law once enacted, But because a SDS budget and staffing would be complete prior to the bills, effective date on September the first this amendment wouldn't have no uh, no application or bearing on the AI ST's A refusal to allow P t a s defined various positions. Some pita as they get together. They raised a little bit of money. Maybe 100,000, maybe $200,000 Depending on what the needs are to fund extra teachers like maybe a math tutor for the kids on campus. Maybe a reading instructed. You know that the A, I s D has not initially funded. This is a position that the ASD would have to go without. If there wasn't some p T a money involved. HB 15 25 also requires school districts. To spend pita donations within the time period specified by the school campus for which the donation was designated kind of, you know, speeding the process up, so the money just doesn't sit there in a I guess D coffers now, according to a report from K views Media Partners, the Austin American Statesman, A SD discontinued the practice because of concerns it would create inequalities between public school districts in public schools, You know, more fluent Peta's versus those where there's less P T a support And you can probably name the schools right now. The National Pita Organization, along with many other Texas school districts does not allow pita donations to fund these positions because of similar equity concerns, according to the Statesman. Yeah, because you know, it's not fair because some rich kids may get the extra help, as opposed to, as opposed to the Austin school district trying to get you know these this extra help in this extra instruction where it's needed the most right in some of these underperforming schools. They're going to try to push down the schools where they have parent involvement in money. Yes, exactly. During the 2021 year school year, pita donations funded 31 full and part time staffing positions at a I s D elementary schools, according to Taylor's letter, and some some some schools have a little bit more, uh, a little bit more money to to hire a whole buffet, having stress just kind of how the world works. You know some people, some areas, some districts, some whatever have more money than others. I guess there needs to be kind of a universal or at least here in the city of Boston, at the very least, just some some kind of set rules that if you if your income exceeds their household income And succeeds a certain amount. Here's some things you are not allowed to do. You may not have you know you may not send your money in this direction or that direction because it will be inequitable. Extraordinary, isn't it? These kids are, uh I I mean, yes, there is. There's the world's always work that way. I'm sorry, but some people who make more money generally have more things afforded to them. And they are handling this completely The wrong way. Everything a I s D has done on this front has been the wrong approach. Focus on those school districts that don't have The extra teachers and figure out a way to help them raise the money and get some get some Tesla involvement in there. You know that kind of thing. Get some get some donations going from big big companies. They love to donate to schools. Right? How about this? Allow those kids of the other performing school to go to the performing schools allow them to transfer over. Get some school vouchers going so the parents can send their kids to the school. You know, that's best for their child. But Democrats can't support school vouchers because their their their neck deep in the unions of school boards, and so they can't. They can't speak out in support School vouchers. They can't do it. They're not. They're Democrats are not arguing on the behalf of the betterment of your child's education.

"And Don Prior. I just noticed in the social media world on Facebook. That you know, one of our popular nightclubs. The Continental is set to open up by the end of the month. How about that? That's really good to know. They shut down and march of 2020. I think they shut down when we canceled south by Southwest. I think that was the first biggie for them and they hadn't been opened. The lights had even been on. But the world I saw this morning. They don't even say who's gonna be playing, But by the end of the month, they will have live music and drink and will happen again. The Continental Club. I've been very fortunate to play there many times, and that is certainly certain good for you. Thank you very much. And certainly Austin's most iconic music venue right now. Been there since what the mid fifties I think in one form or another, Yeah. 8 19 saw also in the Twitterverse Judge Bill Gravel. In a shot out this morning to what an amazing coordinated effort it was teamwork to transform the Dell Diamond into one of those vaccine hubs that did it amazing job. They really did. They did it so much better than Austin, Texas ever even tried to? Yeah, and Judge Bill Carvell says Huge thanks to Chris with the Round Rock Express, Michael Shoe chief Connelly. And all their hard work and coordination on our Dell Diamond vaccine hub. What Samson County is unstoppable when we work together, and businesses are getting back to work. I mean, all the restaurants were busy mothers. Mother's Day again. And what do you see in County has kept its focus throughout this pandemic on dropping up? You know what? Propping up the private sector, the small business community something you didn't see in Austin at all. And like many other places in the state, the numbers of available jobs well, there is outpacing the number of people who are willing to fill those jobs. A lot of help wanted signs all across this area. Newsman Patrick Osborne joins us this morning with more on the economic recovery efforts to Williamson County. The county leaders of again this week expressed how good they feel about the state of the recovery there as one sign of where things are right now, County Treasurer Scott Hazel Mark points to their most recent round of relief grants and the Wilco Forward program, which was tailored specifically to bars, restaurants, hotels and motels where we're gonna end up Is it about 215 approved applications for about $1.25 million recall. We said a $10 million budget on that. So I think again a good reflection of What we have going on in the economy. It's always pretty confident in saying that businesses that needed the most help have since gotten that help. And as of last week, that program came to a close so more businesses are back open. But there's still that lingering issue, he says, which has recently become a pretty standard complaint among Texas business owners across the state. The fact of the matter is there's jobs available on Williamson County. And there's employers struggling to find employees. As we reported just yesterday, A survey by the Texas Association of Business shows only 21% of Texas companies actually have zero job openings. All the remaining 79% are in search of some degree of staffing. And so to address that the county's renting utility program is now in its final days. I think that we've done a great thing with our rent in utility program. And I think that it's time A t end of its life here it Theo end of June to allow that to expire. So after June 30th when it expires, the county will have about $25 million remaining from the federal cares Act. Right there you go, K LBJ's Patrick Osborne on the store in my pin in any kind of relief money going to just individuals that keeps him at home on the couch versus getting back to work is all you're doing is hurting people that at this point, I would like to see all that money go to businesses that are able to use As incentive for people to get back to work as signing bonuses if you will. I think that's where it needs to go versus. Hey, we're gonna We're gonna pay you to stay at home. You're just hurting people at this point, given back to the people where it came from, how about that? Well or that there were that, But if you're gonna give it to anybody, give it to business owners and let them Use that in a way to get people back to work. It is a 21. I think that's the judge's concept or thought there were going to stop providing the rent relief. We're going to stop providing the utility relief. In an incentive to get you to go back to work camera and what he wasn't counting them exactly what they're doing. You could jump in here at 51283605 90. So the governors of several states including North Carolina, Georgia, Virginia, they have declared states of emergency over this gas shortage, all due to the colonial pipeline shut down by those those Russian hackers known as the Dark side. Yeah. What should the United States response be on this locally? Domestically and globally? How should the Biden administration react to this? Well to me? It's an act of terrorism. So what would we do in acts of terrorism? What would you do? I mean, and this this is just the probably the tip of the iceberg. As far as what The possibilities are down the line of hackers like this. They could literally bring this country to its knees. So we have to nip it in the bud pretty quickly. So I thought the question out there. How do you want the Biden administration to respond to this situation domestically with colonial pipeline and other utilities on how should the United States deal with the dark side?.

They said that they asked the Audience to move further away, and only after they didn't fire these warning shots, which they say were aimed not at the vessels, but to indicate the seriousness of their intentions. There are nine votes, then did move back. So the tactics appear to have worked. Know what Navy officials says US forces used preplanned responses to de escalate the situation and avoid a collision. To reduce the risk of miscalculation. They say there's been a major shift reported in in the mission for U. S. Navy seals, the top commander for Navy seals, Rear Admiral Hugh Howard told AP. They're transitioning away from counterterrorism and moving towards taking on global threats. The plan is to prepare the seals for threats from powers like Russia and China.

"And Don Prior s so glad you're here at 51283605 90 just yesterday. Texas Senate Committee. They discussed a bill that would ban public camping and to add to the on going back and forth between the states and the city of Austin. Of course, on this issue, we get the story from reporters at chaos. The current system is not safe or working for anyone, Senator Don Buckingham says. Senate Bill 9 87 is in direct response to Austin's homeless camping ordinance passed two years ago. The ordinance allowed camping in public areas, and Buckingham says it's now become a public health and safety issue. I challenge any member of this committee to go into our large cities and tell me that do you do not see a growing issue, The bill would prohibit public camping statewide, anyone in violation would be charged with the Class C misdemeanor. It also bans local governments from adopting policies that discourage enforcing camping bands. We asked Awesome Mayor Steve Adler about the bill. What do you say then? Two people who are obviously very frustrated with this situation. They see their city looking very differently than it 10 years ago, and they're fed up. I understand the frustration and quite frankly, we haven't done a good enough job is as a city tow manage share public spaces. But, he says, criminalizing homelessness is not going to solve the problem only make things worse. There's nothing about Proposition B or the band that gets us any closer to taking people off the street and putting him into homes. However, Celeste Eggar, chief development officer of Haven for hope in San Antonio, testified to committee that encampments may actually prevent people from getting resource is there Are getting everything that they need in the encampments. They don't have to follow any rules. Committee members voiced concern about the wording of the bill. Highlighting the need for police discretion and information about housing resource is the bill does not banned recreational camping or sleeping in cars. Allan Gardens, CBS, Austin knew all right. There you go. That's from that hearing just yesterday. You know the the mayor's description we have in the city has not done a good job managing Ah public spaces, something like that. I mean, it just It just is not really, really addressing what we're not doing a good job, and we got a bunch of people sleeping on the sidewalk, intense in there peeing and pooping, and they're putting trash everywhere that that's that's the problem right there, Mayor.

I've got one more to go at the end of the month. And I I still consider this a big deal because I think a lot of people feel it's very symbolic. As far as putting the past year to bed. I guess it depends on who you are. Because, you know, you know, I wasn't hesitant. Well, yeah, hesitant to get the vaccination. I'm not an anti vaccine at all. I just struggled with why do I need it? Why do I personally and I never found a doctor? My doctor said, Well, you can if you want. You don't have to which can if you want, so I kind of took that as do I need it. So I need the vaccination. Well, I did. I did get the first vaccination. Guess it was not this past Tuesday, but the Tuesday before the wife and I did and and felt a little little little little of little down for a few hours afterwards. Kind of flu like just a little bit just very mild, but not a big deal, and it went in faded very quickly. But I felt a sense of anxiety. You did? I didn't. Really I really did. Wow. All right, I've felt maybe it's because I read so much about this vaccine. I guess I do have some doubt in my head. I'm not an anti vax er, a typically get a flu shot. I'm not religious about it, but I do get flu shots in years past, But yeah, I mean, I got it and I'll be honest with you. I had a sense of anxiety. After we got that shot. We drove away and I was like All right, All right. I did it and what's just going to do to be gonna happen? Yeah. When is what am I going to get? I had vaccine hesitancy. I'll admit that. But I did it because my wife wants to travel and I want to be married to my wife and travel with her. You made a very good move you got you got the shot for all the right reasons. Believe me, I personally I felt a tremendous sense of relief. And at the same time it was like God, I wish I wish the second one could hurry up and get here. Uh, And I just just full disclosure here. I have to watch it when I'm talking to people that are reluctant or or not going to get it or a really delaying it because they're just not sure I have to. I have to check myself because Part of me does not understand. There's another part of me that does understand. I have to just kind of let that be, and it's It's everybody's right. Understand being hasn't it about it, But for me, it was a tremendous sense of relief. And I've talked to so many other people that are experiencing the same thing. Just like thank God. It's a milestone. It's like putting the past year to bed and going forward. It's moving forward what it means for May 51283605 90, but they say you could still get it. You could spread it well. But then the CDC Rolince key this morning says, Well, you're not getting sick if you get the shot Nobody's being hospitalized. It's it's such a confusing mixed signals. And I wonder if when you say and I agree it's it's a top of mind story. It's it's become. Hey, how's the weather? Did you get your shot? Yes, Become that conversation starter and I'm trying to figure out is that the conversation started because, well, it's an easy topic right now that we're all dealing with, like the weather. No. Or is it because of a mixed reaction to the vaccination off people that want to get it? And it makes the reaction of people that feel like they kind of don't want to, but they will. But they don't want to, and then the people that are just totally against it. My experience has been not not not this coming up. Have you got the shot is a of small talk or an icebreaker. My experience has been. It's just number one on people's mind. They want to know they want to know your experience. Or they want to judge you or whatever it might be Whatever angle they're coming from, It's what is it the tip of people's tongues, and it's right there at the forefront of people's thinking right now, it's really interesting and Show. What do you think of people that refuse to get this vaccination? Uh, Replace the music for this because this will be probably.

"Dot com 32 Todd Jeffries and don Prior. Listen, Mexico is about to legalize the dope, which would make the country the world's largest legal cannabis market. You have. The bill, which passed by lawmakers Wednesday nights would give adults the right to freely use marijuana and grow a small number of plants at home, but also creates illegal marketplace with licensed growers and sellers. The bill now heads to the Senate, and it has the support of the Mexican president as well. But some lawmakers have criticized the bill is kind of a political fat, and they say it won't do anything to stop the powerful and violent Mexican drug cartels, and in fact, it may piss them off. Uh, the competition the Yeah. The lack of demand it could it could create. I don't know. I don't know. I'm not in that world. But again there I wonder what do you mean? You're not in that world? Well, I You are in that world. Well, you are in we're all in the world of the cannabis business. States all across this country make a lot of money off of it. Fixes does Net and and we all collectively are in the business. Somehow, trucks are transporting across state lines. In some cases, banks are dealing with this issue on a legislative issue. Should they accept the money from some of these dispensaries. You know, they're concerned about the federal impact of that There has been a moratorium on Enforcement in some cases in some states, But you know, we're all in this business. Well, okay. What? What I meant was I am not a pot smoker, and it's it's not Of direct concern for me where my pot comes from, or how it's how it's grown or whatever. But I just wonder with this will suddenly will. We have more people growing it at home, or are the people that grow it already doing that This is this is in Mexico. This is Mexican legislation. They're on the verge of doing this, and I think it could lead to some sort of real violence in Mexico. Well, it very well could Avery cartels won the country and when the cartels don't like what lawmakers are doing, they start killing lawmakers. They start killing reporters. They tend to get their way for the past 100 years in that country. This. This could lead to extreme violence south of the border and lead to more people fleeing their country to get here to get away from the wave of violence, and that's what we need more than, But, yeah, you're right. I could. I could definitely see that being a result in Mexico. That's why it's so important that we here in Texas should be aware of what they're doing down there. Yeah. Yep. Do we have any concrete? Data. That the states that have legalized marijuana like Colorado Like California have had any kind of ill effects. As far as Maura Rex Maurer, this mortar that More a death, Maura whatever whatever negative effects could possibly be associated with with marijuana with legalizing marijuana. Is there any? I'm sure there's been some increasing in something? Certainly, but anything that is really, really justifies not legalizing it. That shows that it was some kind of a massive mistake to do it. Right? Other than just making a ton of money a ton of money. Has anything anything negative. Come out of this. So your question is has anything Come out of you know the legalization of pot in Colorado specifically is that was the Chinese state Any state? This legalized it. Let me put the GTs on its second funny thing that they sent me live on the air made the world well, I didn't expect you to have a new immediate answer, but I get my point is that I hate to leave people like you know what? The questions out there? I want to be able to answer the question, I guess is usual. I'm going way too far to ask a very simple question. Is there any justifiable reason that Texas other than politics and it is 99.9% politics? Eyes there any justification for not legalizing it here other than that, Yeah. Well, according to Let's see this is the Colorado Press,.

The city postponed a final decision on buying that motel in District six. They'll do that next week, just giving her a little bit more time to talk to the community, I guess, but did you get a chance to listen to some of the public comments? Business owners community activist If you will, as the City Council was, you know the verge of voting off the 95 people who spoke Go to the City Council about the hotel purchase in northwest Austin. Only nine of them actually lived in District six. I'm not saying that it doesn't mean they don't have a say, but this gives you an idea of their perspective. Yeah, the rest were elsewhere in the city. Many of the speakers also begins saying, Hi. My name is and I'm a proud member of the Austin Democrat Socialist of America Party.

"Don Prior here on the tide of Don show. Yeah, the Boston school district. Maybe. Well, they may find themselves a little bit trouble if on an estimated 100 and 50 teachers don't show up to work next week. That is the word from the union President Kim's air AFIS. They're still upset about. You know the plans for getting back into the classroom. They feel it's happening too fast is what Kenzi surfaces in the superintendent's is We're fine right now. If they don't show up because we're only a 25% capacity, we could figure it out. But that does become a problem. Whatever we switch to 50% capacity on Ginza office, says those teachers should be at home. You know the whole time, at least until we get a vaccine, he says. Jump in here at 51283605 90. So how they feel about other people, the frontline workers or not even the frontline workers, just other people that returned to their jobs. How they feel about that. Is it okay for everybody else, and I'm having a harder time every day with with this position. They're taking here. I understand why you can't understand that. Maybe maybe these individual teachers have issues. Well, maybe they do. We don't know. So I'm just going on on. You know how it appears. On the surface. They're just afraid to go back into your job, and I have. I have a bit of a problem with that, given all the people, their sacrifice. We need our kids in the class from any other teachers in the classroom. We need to get back to that, of course, but You know, I think there should be some flexibility at the very least. Well, I guess yes, Case by case case by case, But if it's just Ah, you know if you have Ah, large portion of the ST 150 people that are just afraid, period, but perfectly healthy yet we've got people going to work at H E. B and Lowe's and Home Depot every single day, you know, come on. You've got the most important job. There is a teacher. I don't think there's a more important job out there. I really don't Other than being a parent and you got to do your job. And and I think a lot of the fears every day are becoming less and less justified. Given the numbers here in Austin, it is 5 50, the U. S House has approved in the Corona virus relief package, but it's It's not like you to go any further. And you know there's a lot of talking. This bipartisan version of this bill continues. Here's news man, Jared Halpert, a $2.2 trillion covert related stimulus plan narrowly approved by the Democratic controlled House is little more than a negotiation tactic. A show of the response Democratic leaders insist is needed. We not only have a dollars today. We have a values debate. Still, I'm optimistic. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is expected to continue talks with Treasury Secretary Stephen Yushin on a bipartisan compromise. The latest White House offer totals about $1.5 Trillion is a good proposal, but it's one that she's not interested in press secretary Kayleigh Mcenany calls the Democrat's plan not serious. Carrot. Halpern. Fox knew there You go. It is 5 51. Listen, if you take a walk along Ah, you know the intersection around 12th and shit con you'll find there's a couple of signs. On the street. They're banning alcohol consumption on the sidewalks. And here's the quotes from from Austin City Councilman Natasha Harper Madison. With that in mind, I think there was always some general underlying racism. You think about the 11th and 12 Street and MLK corridors in the nineties. They were primarily African American and Latin communities that, according to Natasha Harper, Madison, and there have been for decades certain neighborhoods where you could not consume alcohol in the public. Not mainly downtown around the U. T campus, but at least three neighborhoods east by 35 where you can't well, they made a change. Last night, the Austin City Council voted unanimously and passed a resolution. Sponsored by Harper, Madison's office that lifts the bands in those areas in the east and southeast parts of town hears when she says it was a product of a resolution that called for us to be able to change an ordinance that was in place that made it so that there were certain parts of town where you can have an open, open container and others where you couldn't just wasn't fair wasn't equitable, she says. Equity for me means Having access to an amenity. That is exactly how I see it. Some personal freedom. Having a beer in your neighborhood is a personal freedom and having it in one part of town and not another. Well, that's not equity is what she says. Well, and I think I might also have something to do that. We've got more and more restaurants and bars over there. And maybe you know that's that's gonna help with the the economic situation of that as well. Chazz Moore is the executive director for the Austin Justice Coalition, and says the fact It was a huge red circle in place where you can't drink on the East side is very much evidence. This was basically a racist policy, Morris says. Not surprised about the old ordinance Exciting. And you know the old master plan of the early 20th century Apparently That according to the story, they're on Fox seven news, but they, you know, remove that ordnance. Remove that measure, University of Texas the drag downtown Austin those you know, as well as an area directly south of the bridge. Well, keep those restrictions in place. In the meantime, advocates fill. This is a step in the right direction for all of Boston, which includes East Siders. Well, let's be very clear there was a certainly Ah, you know, the majority of the history of East Austin? Yeah, it's it's been, ah, minorities and now it is not only Black and brown and everything else. It's also largely wide as well. So it's a muchmore much more diverse community over there that used to be. I don't know if that was part of the motivation as well. But as it is right now, I don't see it is a racist, Paul. It's policy, but it sure that didn't make sense. It didn't make sense at all The other places like my neighborhood, your neighborhood or whatever would be able to do it. And not them.

"Jeffries and Don Prior here on the top. Don show check this out is what was a new study that kids may carry higher levels. Of the Corona virus. Yes, gold districts around the U. S. And trying to figure out reopening plans. A new study puts another wrinkle into the conversation. Researchers now say that young Children are most likely spared from the virus don't seem to spread it others very often, but A new study shows kids under the age of 5 May host upto 100 times as much of the virus in their nose and throats compared to adults. Yeah, one pediatric infectious disease expert in Chicago says. We can't assume that just because kids aren't getting sick are very sick. That they don't have a higher level of the virus. Researchers acknowledged the study was small and doesn't necessarily prove their point yet, but it's kind of an interesting point to study a little further. They say. Well, it goes in the face of what we've been hearing is that kids don't carry much of the virus and they don't spread it easily. I don't know what that means. Much of the virus. I don't either my level of of sciences. You either got it or you don't you right now. You know you don't have a little bit of a pregnancy. Yeah, Yeah. You don't have a little bit of a virus. You may have a mild case of it. Yeah, for it's not like you care in a bucket. I don't know what it means, either, but but it just makes it more confusing and illustrates that people still really don't know what the hell's going on with this thing. They're learning as they go and some of it and it's hard to trust what you hear it ISS and even the numbers. I don't know what's a trust? Because I don't trust the numbers. I don't trust the the information because it's all been tainted by politics. Yeah, exactly. So I just kind of went out. She could have kept the pilot Ticks out of it. He may still have some credibility. That's that's why I'm just trying to go through life as much as I can try to be smart. Try to be safe, but but not let too much of this influence the way I'm going to live my life because I don't trust hardly any of it. Are you gonna get some goggles? Also Move your faulty Steve. Steve Gargles. I'm wearing them right now. I know you are actually their Speedos. Swim goggles. Yeah, he says, get some goggles goggles, Because if you look around too much, why is he just not telling us this? I don't know. Because because again again, it's like, Oh, well, heck, yeah. Get this through your eye. Is there any other or West sweat gland? Is there any other orifice? We need to cover tear glands? Something. Tell us not to tell us now, Please. I think you might patchy. Ifyou're while you're at it. You might as well just tell us every single hole that you have in your body. Lets go. Teo Kyle, Texas in South Austin. Let's see Kyle. Kyle is himself. Hello, Kyle Thought we had Austin in Cairo. It's so completely got Kyle. He's in Austin. You've really screwed us up, Kyle. Hey, what's on your mind? Hey, fellas, Thanks for taking my call. One thing I did want to I want to mention is just with this whole co vered situation. We've really seen how the public school system itself is the backbone structure of society. And when it all shuts down, things collapse, parents are left without options. And and you have all these legislators needing to make both. And for me, I'm a very small government person and My big question is, Is this a good time to bring up the conversation about school choice and voucher program? That's why I brought it up earlier. Hey, listen, I think this pandemic is going to lead to the biggest shakeup in public education we've ever seen thinks so too. I mean, I mean, think about you're absolutely right. This this pandemic has highlighted the backbone that our education system is to our business economy. Parents gotta have a place to send their kids to go to work. It's very important. Just only so are just our mental psyche. A kid's gotta learn, you know. I mean, it's we We gotta have him but what we've also learned Ah Kyle is is it is in a public school system is is just fat, Bloated, Slow. Can't make change. You know what I'm saying? We re indoctrinated. By the way. I was very proud to see the Austin school district really ramp up their WiFi spread across various neighborhoods. They were they some apartment complexes didn't have WiFi. You know what I mean? I was I was impressed with the way they rolled school bus mobile sites out. You know what I mean? Those were the school. It was cool to see. But it also pointed out Well, why the hell haven't you done that before? Why? Why their entire sections of our community that have no WiFi. That's it Highlighted. Ah, you know, a downside as well. And then our WiFi of public utility. Now, with that question being great. Yeah, No, I think you're right. I truly believe that there should be some sort of executive order that clears the way for the money. Have her money. However much Austin currently spends on average per kid is how much that local parents should get to spend on their education for their kids. When would that be incredible? Parents have the ability to just take that check to any any school that would would receive it and educate their child at a place that they choose where we're driving can occur. I think you could make a constitutional argument that parents should have that choice. How I completely agree. Instead of forcing you to send your kid to that school that's down the street. I mean, this is this is performing. This is an argument that that Louis Malle Faro at education Austin should be making Instead of defending these public schools and arguing with them in every school board meeting, he should to be demanding a school voucher system so that the kids that in those neighborhoods could get the best education that that is available. That should include the online option always as well Because some of these kids have performed better in that regard. Some it's been a total failure. That's why the parents need more choice. Yeah. Yeah. And yeah, And I mean, just this hole, the teachers are being willing to strike against the students and the taxpayer. Yeah, Yeah. Yeah, I mean, You know God be it for me to tell you. You can't organize and hire a lawyer to represent your cause. But there's something about the public sector protesting against the taxpayer. That I don't know that that put you in the gray area, you know, and and call. The other side of this is Louis mah far over the education Austin there demanding and threatening strike. They're demanding full online education leased the first semester of the next school year. I did, And he needs to be careful because that maybe that may work and be more efficient. You don't need 209th grade English teachers in the city. When everybody's online, you just need the five best. Right? Yeah. So it right. This may backfire on him and lead to a big shakeup in public education. So we get a tax return for the school being empty. And then maybe no way. You don't need those big buildings. You don't need any buildings When everybody's at home. All you need is a football stadium on a basketball, gym buildings. All those buses. Thank you. I appreciate it, man. Thank you very much. Have a good day. It is 7 52 We got somebody else, then got see that Steven calling from its two R's I'm gonna assume that's round rock. Yes, sir. I would like to continue this idea, And I think maybe it's time to go on the offensive and we pushed back against what education system has become and must think about. De funding, rethinking, redirecting all of the money that will for years we put towards public education and they've actually turned into an indoctrination camps where they train our Children to hate America and blame America First. I think a lot of social unrest problems that we're having our are due to The Miss arm, al education of our Children, and we need alternative and choice. Like you're talking about to give parents some other place to send their kids so that they're not trained to hate and paint this place. Yeah, yeah, I hear what you're saying, man. Thank you, Steve. 7 50 for here. It K l B J. I just wonder what the University of Texas fly the flag of the United States of America that their state.

"Don Prior, joining us on the news line from the Texas Public Policy Foundation, formerly with the Austin City Council, Ellen Trucks players with us on the live news line this morning. I'm aware of her good morning. LF you do it, all right, you're doing good. I'm doing well and doing well. You survive in this pandemic. She's my kid free school is opening and we just found out this week. So that is pretty much the best news I've heard all year. You're not terrified. Because I know that Ah, Child is more likely to die from being struck by lightning in the new study, then die from Corona virus. So we are. We are excited to get them back in school, and they're excited. They're thrilled they were, You know, they're they're tired of the board. And and that's why you keep your kids out of a thunderstorm. That's the reason why right there. Ellison, Several teachers unions, They're talking about a possible strike. If these kids don't get back if the teachers don't have the proper protocol to keep them safe, just what are your thoughts about all of that These teachers unions is starting to weigh in on this issue. Very Very vocally. Yeah, So I mean, First of all, Texas is paying for every teacher and every administrator in the state tohave pp equipment, So there everybody, it's not like they're going into a dangerous battle down. They are going to be like actually more protected than people that we see every day at a TV or At your doctor's office, and none of those people have the ability to just say Hey, we're not goingto come tto work. Is that okay? And you can still pay us But there is a new and teachers. Well, I don't know if there are new, but they are on alternatives to traditional teachers unions. They're called innovative teachers of Texas for the teacher's listening out there. They have been very vocal in saying We don't support a blanket mandate that school shut down. That should be up to individual teachers and parents, and they're kind of supporting the teachers who are saying, Hey, I I'd actually like to get back in the classroom. Actually, I like my job. I feel safe. Andi, I want. I want to get back to teaching kids, so they're called again innovative teachers of Texas and I think they're really differentiating themselves on this issue because they're not following the traditional union line of just saying we're going to go on strike right? Right. Interesting. There's a There was a new survey out this week about de funding police, and it indicates that a majority of Austinites do not support that idea whatsoever. Thiss issue continues to make its way through city Hall digging a little bit deeper into the police budget. Just want to get your thoughts. Yeah, that's right. The the budget that the city manager has proposed so far did cut 100 police officers. 100 police positions. However, that's well short of, you know the 25% budget cut That many of the activists have been recommending, but ultimately it's the city Council. That makes that final decision. So they're entering the budget discussions now and you know, city home. It is a bubble. They only hear from the people who have the time and the ability to go up to City Hall and spend all day at those hearings and all day at those meetings, which, as you know, last hours and hours, and also be well into the morning, the average person average off tonight in their car driving toe work right now on going to be taking, you know, picking up kids from activities and things like that. They're they're not the people that they From at City Hall isolated in And I think that the longer you're there, the more the those council members think that that's representative of the population right out of the world. The Austin City Council gets most of its information in direction from city employee surveys. A very powerful city Employees union type thoughts. That's that's where they get all their information. Yeah, that's how these surveys you don't City Hall, you know, surveys air conducted on ya. It's just City employees that really have the ear of the City Council. Not even some of those people that caused all the problems out there. Those who just happened to be there is 15 unemployed people sitting here in the chambers. This must reflect everybody's opinion. Ln the City Council is on the verge of declaring Racism. I Ah public health crisis That is something that's on the agenda to declare racism. Ah, public health crisis to me That sounds like they're prepared to spend some money on something. So they have never seen an opportunity to spend money that they didn't pass up right so that they that they passed up so yeah. I mean, I think that we're all in the same boat here. The racism should be condemned, and that there is progress that needs to be made of foreign police interactions and things like that. But I mean, I don't know about you, but everywhere I turn Now I'm seeing the I'm seeing. Hey, we all support everybody, Regardless of color we support We're lifting up black voices and minority voices, So I'm not really sure what that means, You know, they do stuff there that makes them feel good. So if if, and they don't always End up and actually changing anybody's lives. I mean, there have been they appointed an equity officer. You know that makes six figure salary several years ago. There's been Ah, a task force a City commission on all kinds of racial and equity issues for years now, and so if they still have a problem, it's because none of the things that they have done and none of the money that they have spent up until now. Has actually made any kind of difference. I don't know why they think that time would be any different. I think you could blame Mayor Steve Adler for promoting institutional racism. It was his own report in 2015 where he pointed out institutional racism. Well, here we are approaching 2021 he hasn't fixed it. It's it's kind of his fault now. Well, I never heard really any good examples of what he was talking about. You know, never is. There never is true Examples. Ellen, tell folks how they could find you. You can find me on social Media Man have been tweeting up a storm recently and follow me on Twitter at Ellen Truck's clear or on Instagram and Facebook at Ellen Jocks there or on my website, you guessed it.

If a nursing home where they're taking a loved one has some covert 19 cases. And I don't Andy, it says Here that you've got you got a personal story that you're dealing with. Yes, sir. I have a brother that in a nursing home in South East Austin. Their offer. Slaughter, and they had Covic, 19 Kate Vera Kovacs 19 problems. They lost two nurses on over. I know it's over 5/5 residents. They now are testing negative for quite some time. I guess. Let's see 123 weeks and I haven't been able to have seen my brother for going on for months. And, uh Anyway. So then there's also contractors that they're working on the facilities and they're coming in and out of the building. And so my beef is off winner. You know, like a wedding. Let relatives see their plea. They're you know people that care about. Yeah, absolutely. And you know what's something that we've been told by city officials that His roommate whose ex Navy off uh, airplane I would kind of gives me informed what's going on, he says. Sometimes we still see them the contractors without their masks on or not wearing glitter. So I've already made a call into the state about it. Caring about that other place made me want to call and make a comment on it. Yeah. Hey, I appreciate thank you for calling in and help you see your brother soon. Yeah, absolutely. It's a horrible situation to be in. Yeah, sure that's to you. Ah, And he's just one of many, many, many stories out there that know Listen, it's and that not only goes for Nursing homes. But you know if if you have a loved one in a hospital, for whatever reason, Same thing there, you know you can't go see him. Well, it makes sense, right? I mean, it makes sense. I mean, nursing homes have been hot bed. I read so it makes sense to limit the number of people that are coming and going, But it Just seems odd that construction workers are coming and going, But you know, you can't get a visitation for one family member at a time well, and a lot of these construction workers as we know, I mean, it's not necessarily there, spreading it to each other on the job site a lot at home. Lot of them live in multigenerational households. And there you go in the world of Tech news brought to you by nerds in a flash. That lawmakers in Washington the reacting to the State Department's order for the Chinese Consulate in Houston to shut down We broke the story yesterday morning about this time, and that's when we saw those Chinese diplomats starting to burn things in the courtyard. All the documents in the filing cabinets and things like that that made beef is According to the Department of Justice is China has been stealing intellectual property from companies in America for a long time. This is something that's been discussed for many, many years. Here's Texas Senator Ted Cruz, the Chinese communists..

"Todd Jeffries and don prior yeah you can always jump in here any time five one two eight three six zero five ninety violence is on the rise in Austin that according to our police chief Brian manly following a dozen shootings and assaults in less than a week he says Austin is still the fifth safest major city when it comes to violent crime but we are seeing changes we are seeing increases in violent crime we are seeing increases in the use of firearms but during commission of a violent crime no kidding we got a city council it's easy on crime we have a buffet of local judges that have been easy on crime over the past few years as of today we have a hundred and eighty vacancies in the police department we will graduated class January thirty first and then begin another class instead you worry however the proposed resolution that passed that could delay the June connect class will further delay us catching up with our staffing needs now the chief says there is some good news the state has more troopers that have increased our patrols that is under the direction of the governor and we will look to partner with them on initiatives throughout the city so we gave that please presence where it needs to be and we can have a response posture that will allow us to respond as quickly as possible to future calls for service now mainly says because of the recent shooting violence Austin has seen its second murder of the year so far already yeah yeah you got the story yesterday about the the neighborhood associations to wander all nightly patrols to stop Greenhalgh car thieves and burglars you got a wave of violence involving homeless people over the past well just the past few weeks alone yeah and if this is the shortage of police again a hundred and eighty policemen we have that shortage of a hundred ninety policemen that's huge that's a lot of people think about a hundred ninety people in a room it's a lot of people that we need to fill their in this last stabbing the stabbing there is near riverside drive in and and in Congress that we had were someone ended up dying than we had twenty people twenty twenty minute delay in the plan getting the twenty minutes long that's not a person accurate there I wasn't quite a twenty minute delay another call originally came in just a homeless person shouting in Austin Texas that's not a crime that would be so that's you know from the outset week day yeah from that first call is when that's how they got the twenty minutes yeah when it became violence it only took a handful of minutes for the cops to get there well it is it's still it's unfortunate that that's where the that's where they have to put the priorities when you have a homeless person that's acting up you know still a policeman should be responding more quickly they but they but they have to prioritize things so differently now because there are short so short handed they have to look at everything differently what what is the most important thing for us right now show I don't know homeless crazy person attacking an elderly man that seems pretty high priority exactly charter schools have you heard about this charter schools are taking a serious toll on the Austin school district budget Hey I UST chief finance and business officer Nicole Conley Johnson says charter schools are posing a real challenge could potentially put enormous pressure on the district's budget well that's that's good that's called competition she says over the past seven years charter school enrollment has more than doubled and she sees no sign of that trend reversing it's looking like her school growth could grow about eighty eight hundred students over the next several years which for a S. T. that can mean a distal losses of about fifty million per year she says a ISD right now charter's take about fifteen thousand a I guess the students you know his cost about a hundred million dollars in revenue per year they look at kids revenue by twenty twenty six the school year that could cost could climb to about a hundred and fifty nine million dollars they don't like the competition they just want your money and your kids they want the money before they want their kids as a matter of how we talked about yesterday what kind of rating would you give a I SD and it is pressure on them so get it together as the six oh nine in time for the rush update California's high speed train project is in shambles a lot of farmers were hurt by this boondoggle they owned prime property in California's bread basket which feeds millions of us the state Graham their lan using eminent domain and promised to pay market value but the farmers did not get a single penny and worse they had to pay for the enormous damage the contractors did their property the Los Angeles Times says the California authorities return to these farmers hundreds of times to get more land than they originally talk that's because they issued construction contracts before the design was finished so they have no idea how much land they were gonna need they made it up as they went along not only were farmers staffed it turns out that the high speed train Obama and Jerry Brown promised won't even be high speed if it's ever even finished it's already millions in the red it'll never attract enough writers to be profitable Jim all this misery for the global warming hoax that's why they did this in Obama and governor brown the Liberal Democrats responsible for this high speed swindle are no where in sight to have to answer for Hey it's a new year the perfect opportunity to take your business to the next level by hiring the right people but finding qualified candidates.

"Don, prior gentlemen, you have fouled the totted, Don show, come home. Either back. They are back in town state lawmakers they get back to work today here in Austin and state controller Glenn Hager. He's cautiously cautiously optimistic about the state's economic outlook heading into the eighty sixth state legislative session. Now Hager projected just over one hundred and nineteen billion dollars in available tax revenue for the next biennium while we project continued growth in the coming by any of them. I believe that recent economic conditions warrants more cautious revenue outlook for this coming by heggers long-term apprehension is coming from the current abnormally low oil prices and unpredictable global economy. So he gave some caution tap of the brakes if you will a little bit at the state capital. So what are some of the top priorities? This legislative session. We got a chance to speak with Democrats state lawmaker Donna Howard. About what is on her radar this session, including school finance reform. I think that the number one priority for not only me, but probably just about everybody else over. Here's the capital is a public school finance reform really happy to see that the leadership is indicating that that is a top priority for them as well. Perhaps we can actually get something done this session. At the very least we need to make sure that we kit Pete from shifting more and more of the cost onto local property tax payers and stop the bleeding there. There's probably about three and a half billion dollars. This coming biennium that will be working on that will be coming as additional funds from property tax payers that instead of the state benefiting from and putting less in. I would suggest that the taxpayers are paying for public schools that three and a half billion needs to go to public schools and make sure that the state maintains its share and begins to get back to paying for at least half the cost of public education. So would you be willing to tap into the rainy day fund or create a mechanism to create more cash for schools? Well, you know, the basic way that's addressed is oftentimes to say we don't use the rainy day fund or the economic stabilization fund for for ongoing expenditures that being said. There probably are some things that could be. Looked at it seed money if you will from the rainy day.

Freakiness will happen will happen it'll be fun when the freakiness happened and it's Friday there you go okay, thanks for clarifying that, so many things to get to this morning in leaders listing, as we get started with the top stories of the day please throughout this morning be thinking of, a new name for the city of Austin why why we're gonna have to change the name of Austin Texas we're going to explain this a little, bit later but Tall order well it's it's a very, tall, order, I, just. Need you to be thinking. About this because this is. Something that is going to be happening in the very near future the equity office of Austin recommended the city remove or, change the names, of, streets. Parks markers in even the name. Austin Texas we gotta get rid of these racist names these. Are all names tied to. The confederacy at some, point just about every park just about every street and now the city. Is getting a recommendation, to change. The, name so just, just, be thinking about. This make your list of what, we should change the name of. The city of Oslo you're. Setting up a joke and there'd be a punchline later. No no no. No, this is a real. Story this is something that's real the Austin monitor is reporting that the equity office of Austin is recommending the city remover, changed the names of, streets parts even the word Austin Texas so be thinking about. Big? Deal we're getting rid of racism in one fell swoop, right. Here 537 here all the time Don show and, decades After their deaths US soldiers are now on their way. Home North Korea released the probable remains of troops who fought during the Korean war, President, Trump says this is the, result, of. That meeting he had with the North Korean. Leader not too long ago a somber ceremony at Osan airbase, in South Korea Friday morning one by one. The remains of US soldiers were handed over fifty five cases in. All this ceremony occurring on the anniversary, of the signing of the armistice that ended hostilities in the Korean war this return. Is one of the commitments North Korean leader Kim Jong Hoon, agreed, to, when, he. And President Trump met last. Month in Singapore now I. Have a great relationship I think I think with chairman Kim and I think a lot of good things are going to, happen while Mr., Trump, trumpeted. Positive things about Pyongyang for nine. Months no nuclear tests no rockets going up no missiles going over Japan we got three. Hostages back vice president Mike Pence, remains reserved there, is no escaping the, plain fact that North Korea's. Leadership has exacted unparalleled probation and cruelty Upon its, people for decades time, will tell what will happen with the relationship between the US and. North Korea but for, now the White House says it's encouraged. By North Korea's actions and the momentum for. Positive, change it could take months maybe years before the remains are identified a formal repatriation ceremony is scheduled for August first I'm John Lawrence report by thirty nine. President Trump's most ardent Republican allies in. The house want to force a vote on. Articles of impeachment against, deputy attorney general rod Rosenstein speaker of the house Paul Ryan doesn't think it's, a good idea This, could upset well tie up the Senate. Which is already working on spending bills and supreme, court nominations and now the push could be a moot point however as the house is set to go on its August recess and clear of house leaders will. Allow a vote but conservative freedom caucus, members are targeting deputy attorney general rod Rosenstein with articles of impeachment if there ever divorce the Justice. Department to release all documents related to the Russia and Trump campaign investigations we're not about interfering with the Muller investigation what we're about is doing. Proper oversight and, transparency that's Republican Mark, meadows for his part Rosenstein counters the Justice department has turned over. Thousands of documents but, he's reluctant to give congress evidence in. An ongoing investigation Russian effort to influence the. Two, thousand sixteen presidential campaign is just one tree in a growing forest one author of the articles of impeachment Jim Jordan of Ohio wants to be Paul Ryan's. Replacement come January Jordan's aspiration is emblematic. Of contempt freedom caucus members have for Ryan For his part the current speaker does not. Want the house to get bogged down on impeaching the deputy. Attorney general I don't think we should be. Cavalier with this process or with this term to I don't think that this rises the level of high crimes and misdemeanors so really high, standard backing majority leader Kevin McCarthy to be the. Next, speaker Ryan also says he Rosenstein impeached the house it'll tie up the Senate already tied up with a supreme, court nomination and the need to pass separate spending.
