Ladies and gentlemen, you have found the tide of Don show and you could jump in at 51283605 90. We're gonna begin this hour with a big announcement is you know, Premiere radio networks is announcing that clay Travis and Buck Sexton show it will be debuting on June The 21st 11 a.m. to two p.m. right here on news Ready? Okay. LBJ in this time slot of the legendary Rush Limbaugh. Clay. Travis. Well, you've heard of Buck Sexton. You've heard him in the evenings for quite a while. Now. Clay, Travis was on Fox last night. Talking about the big news. Congratulations, claims it's amazing news. Are you nervous? I'm not nervous, Tucker. First of all, Thanks for having me you do incredible work, and I don't think you could be nervous about stepping in the matter. Replacement. Buck and I are not replacements for Rush Limbaugh, because no one replaces a legend. But what you can do is continue the fight and you know this because you do it every night. There is so much insanity going on in this country right now, and I've done sports for the last six years, Tucker, and it's slowly on daily sports radio slowly just spiraled more and more into the cataclysmic Lee ridiculous. And so I'm excited Finally, to just be picking up a sword and be able to swing back every single day at all The dignity ignoramus is out there in the idiots and the nincompoops and actually be able to stand up for. I think a huge number of people out there who worry every time they get on Twitter or Facebook or instagram and what to share their opinion, and then think, is it worth it? Am I going to end up losing my job over this? I think you do. And I think certainly we will speak for a lot of people who don't feel like they can speak to you. Go play Travis on Fox last night and he had box Sexton 11 to 2 should be great Juna the June the 25 would be great. Hey, listen, if you want to weigh in on that 51283605 90 some tough shoes to fill right there that you don't feel them. You don't even try You just you do what you do. You do the best you can. You don't try to fill them because that's that's an impossibility. There's no one out there. That compares in any way, shape or form to rush Limbaugh. So you don't you don't even attempt it Now. He mentioned social media there. Uh, hear about this. Facebook is no longer gonna be banning post that claim Covert 19 was Produced in a laboratory. Yeah, well, the basically admitting that they were censoring things, Yeah, the platforms starting to ban such post back in February, claiming it was have been debunked. But now the company is changing course in light of the ongoing investigation into the origins of Copan 19, including the recent Wall Street Journal reports that three Wuhan researchers were hospitalized with covert like symptoms. In November of 2019, and they say that they were blocking those post since February because that theory had been debunked debunked how How was it debunked? I know. You know if it was debunked it all. Maybe Facebook thinks it should have been Maybe because it's hard to believe it could happen. Yeah. You know, it's hard to believe in this day and time with all of the science out there with all that the measures that can be taken with all the safety precautions that should be in place. This should be an absolute impossibility. It should be impossible that in this day and time what happened That what happened happened so it was made possible with your dollars it again A function. Research had been going on for quite a while, and I remember reading an article in October before the pandemic. Some researchers out of China were bragging about their covert viruses that they had been studying. Bragging about, you know, And here we go, man. I wasn't HCB yesterday and I was one of maybe four people I saw out of hundreds that were not wearing a mask. Most people were and there's a new study out this morning That's trying to determine whether the statewide mass mandates were effective. And slowing the spread of the virus. So far, the results indicate there was no difference between the growth cases. You know what the numbers dropped in both states almost identically. Now, why would that be? Well, you know, mask mandates, I believe may have a counterproductive effect. And this study from Louisville seems to show it are. Are people really complying with it when it's on some statewide mandate? Remember when the governor of Texas was called a Neanderthal? Well, the state the numbers dropped in Texas after the masked men, they went down. You know why you can't prove any of this. Will that masked mandates work? You know why they don't work because they're part of an overall strategy. What is actually working here? Not gathering, you know, not being stupid, taking personal responsibility or the mask itself. I think masks have a value in very close quarters inside when you're actually coming face to face with covert 19. Writing down the street with a mask where no one is around you completely foolish, and all that does is make people very nervous. And when you're afraid you take fewer precautions, the mass mandates don't appear to have worked on the statewide level. This study was very carefully done. I looked at it very closely. They looked at CDC data from the entire pandemic writing from one state to the next, and there was no big difference. Yeah, there you go. A study on that Neanderthal thinking. And removing the mask. But the fact is, there is no doubt it goes hand in hand. When we started having Maura. Why'd availability of the vaccine? The numbers started plummeting. They weren't plummeting because we were wearing masks. It happened hand in hand. Side by side with vaccines, period. I don't know. I don't understand what is going on with some people out there that can not shed the mask, even if they have been vaccinated. What the hell is that? What are they thinking? What? What is? What is there? You know, maybe they don't believe the science. Why did you get vaccinated? Then? That's my question. If you're still wearing a mask, and you got vaccinated people why are you what? Why? Why did you get vaccinated? Maybe they're not vaccinated. Yes. Maybe that's why they're lying about it. Maybe they maybe they aren't vaccinated. You know what I'm saying? Is people that did get vaccinated that are still wearing a massive. It's ramp. It it is. I You're listening to the best of Todd and don On news, radio, K.

"And Don Pryor. Ladies and gentlemen, you have found the tide of Don show you could jump in at 51283605 90 Toll free 87759055 to 5, so the popularity of renewable energy in Texas Is now challenging that of a natural gas fracking, according to the latest statewide poll. This is from the University of Houston. We hear from newsman Chris Fox reporting surprisingly, Obama care also polled well in Texas areas. Texas is the largest oil and natural gas producing state. Despite that, more than 60% of Texans say they support alternatives. You asked Texans about where they think future energy should come from an overwhelming majority support wind solar And hydro and actually a plurality, favor cutting fracking. Mark Jones of the University of Houston Tabi School of Public Affairs, says Texans are also concerned about health care. More than two thirds of Texans support expanding Medicaid under the affordable Care Act, Texas one of 12 states that still has not done that Chris Fox News Radio K L. B J On this front, Joe Biden is, you know is targeting drilling and fossil fuel subsidies. Representative Dan Crenshaw. He's from Texas didn't like the idea that they shut down this Keystone pipeline because, well, he says, he says, the you know the fuel is still needed. It's now it's going to be shipped on boats, trains and trucks, which is much more dangerous. Never got it is now he goes on to say that Republicans they're not against clean energy it all look I'm all about a clean energy revolution. But you have to then invest in that clean energy. Something like nuclear, which is the only clean energy that it can actually produce a base load power. See, solar and wind cannot do that. You can't really power industry with solar wind and you can't really power of power grid Either. You don't have to manufacture all of your winter mines and solar panels in China, which, by the way, have so little environmental regulations that you're probably producing all sorts of environmental waste and carbon emissions just by producing it out their ship it all the way here clear bunch of land, then build a heck of a lot more transmission lines to get that energy to the places you need it. Where if we actually cared about a clean energy revolution, we could have one acre of land, build a nuclear power plant that last 25 30 50 years or build a natural gas plant and then implement carbon capture technology within that natural gas plants that it's zero net emissions as well but also produces base load power. So you can actually have your cake you needed to Okay, You don't have to have this false choice between doing nothing and destroying the American energy industry and getting nothing out of it. So we have to have a real policy discussion on the solutions here, and the Democrats could not be going in a worse direction. There you go. That's Dan Crunch on the Fox business Channel. The problem is a lot of points. Motivating the Democrats is not having he's talking about real science and and speaking quite eloquently about it. The Democrats is it's more politically motivated, and it's more almost like there. It's almost like retribution with them. It's almost like revenge. And the cost right now, as we're seeing is the loss of many, many, many, many jobs lose up to 120,000 jobs in Texas with Keystone Pipeline Executive order, But But the thing is, Yeah, you're right. The left seems to be making a dramatic push towards this green new deal. Out of fear. When there should be a way to get there and, you know, protect the planet. Keep jobs going. There's gotta be a way to get there and a much more timely fashion. That just doesn't destroy the economy and destroyed lives in the process Sphere and it's also based on you know what what the Republicans don't want. So therefore, that's what we will do or more specifically, or just simply We hate Donald Trump. You know, it's it's still is, Let's undo everything that he's done. And that's what it's based on Crenshaw. He's thinking practically he's thinking intelligently about it. And very impressive. It is 7 38 did you by any game stop stock yesterday? I did not Maybe some AMC or anything like that. No, I did not. There are some beautiful waking up this morning, and they made literally hundreds and hundreds of thousands of dollars trading stock yesterday they Paying over the past few weeks. Actually is game stops been just going crazy, and basically, it's kind of a David and Goliath kind of story. You know where the You know the small town investor out there in their dorm room in some cases, or just, you know, working from home, buying up some stock and really going at these big hedge funds, and those hedge funds took a big hit yesterday, and it'll be really interesting to see what happens today. You know, you may hear some words in this story that may confuse a few people, but basically what has happened over the past. I don't know, maybe 234 weeks, I guess. Well this week alone, the business world's attention has been hijacked Host cell by an army of amateur traders looking to make fools of the traditional finance industry. And yesterday it got really, really spicy. After a 130% gain. Gamestop Gamestop stock closed at 348 Bucks last summer. It was four bucks. AMC Entertainment shares jumped 301% and you know nobody's making movies and very few people are going to the theater, so it doesn't make sense, right? Well, the run up in game stopped was so dramatic that they're short sellers. Citron Research, which bet on the stock dropping, was forced to close out most of his position at the loss of 100% that, according to their managing partner, Andrew left, now there's a couple of things in the making here as we dive a little bit deeper into this story. I mean, there's a general feeling that game stops saga speaks to you know something larger about the you know the nature of the financial markets, even our culture and trying to make some sense of this. There's a few The theories out there, how this is happening, why this is happening, and there's kind of Ah stick it to the man theory. The theory suggests that these traders are motivated primarily for their disdain for suits. Long time wardens of Wall Street's who read Attar's argue, exploited that little guy by getting filthy rich no doubt about that. And yeah, and also the people are bored, I guess without much you know else to do During the pandemic, people have turned to stock markets toe. Well, guess have entertainment form of gambling. If you will sounds like it. There's also this Robin Hood theory out there the rise of amateur investors, which we you and I talked about a couple of years ago, Trace back to Robin Hood, the app. That pioneered no fee trading and empowered individuals to influence the stock market, like never before. And what has been happening is, you know you got the big hedge funds. They got a big bucks so they could buy a lot of stock. They could sell a lot of stock, which makes that stock just collapse because they're counting on the company, you know, collapsing, and then they swoop in and buy him cheap and Basically they had to start selling the big hedge funds had to start selling as these amateurs got together and started buying and both started working on top of each other making you go through the roof. There's also this mim of occasion society out there theory. Some observers have linked the behavior of bread. It's trading army to other online communities like four Chan that engage in, you know, Astro turf in campaigns if you will, and if you could create enough hype around something through means conspiracy theories, harassment campaigns. That you could manifest it into reality via capital is what Ryan Brodrick out, writes in the story. Now the community behind this frenzy trades. They ran into some trouble last night Discord Band the the Reddit Page Wall Street bets and their server for violating policies on hate speech. And the moderators on Reddit form briefly made it pi private as well. So now you're up to date on all of this Well, and it is just it will make your head explode as far as how they you know the formula that inflated the stock to just unthinkable heights yesterday. But I think in the long run a I know enough tol you that it's it's dangerous territory. Ultimately, this is all that's not based on reality. It's based on its being artificially, uh, created here basically. What were the bottom line? You think the hedge funds have been doing for generations? I understand what you're saying is exactly what they do, but It would still is an investor. It would still scare the hell out of me because it's still a company that the bottom line it's a company that's failing and continues to fail even even more. I don't know man, AMC. They were able to cash in 300 million yesterday as part of this and that actually may save them..

"Product. He must become a member of Penn Fed, insured by anti way 35 times. Jeffries Don Pryor. Ladies and gentlemen, you have found the tide of Don shit. This realize it's a big deal. It really is that was squeezing some calling back. People lined up here. Let's see Lance Lance's in bass drop Formerly of the Backstreet Boys, But now he's on the tide of Don show Lance sorry in sync and she got my and sings mixed up. What? Alright? Yeah. And you were singing the new kids on the block. You got them all mixed up. That wasn't my thing, guys. So what's on your mind? That's well, I was thinking about the pipeline people losing jobs and end up homeless. Those hotels they're gonna buy in the Austin And then I lose you. No, no, no, You're here. OK, Sorry. OK, And so think about those properties around those who tell us they're gonna drop pretty quick, You know, Neighborhood's gonna get run down business is gonna get run out of business. And I tried to follow you guys pretty good, but didn't want Mayor Adler's relatives any related somebody who's in real estate, somehow his wife to buy a property. That's just why there were ladies in a property management business real estate business, They sleep in the same. His career of choice is a imminent domain lawyer that Z what a man had his previous job. That's kind of waters. We get a moratorium put on the sale. Those properties are that wanted to a vote when they ever get that way sold after they run down. It can't be used anymore. Yeah, it would transform a neighborhood and clear the way for some of you know, like a transportation corridor. You know what I mean? Listen, joining us on the celebrity news line from the Texas Public Policy Foundation. Miss Ellen Trucks, players with us. Wow, to be it's a big deal. Hang on a second. There we go, Alan. So today the Austin City Council is going to purchase a couple of hotels well beyond what they're valued at. What do you make of all of this? I just don't understand. The strategy especially sent the previous hotels that they've already way overpaid for are not in any way impact things. The homeless issue in Austin. And I don't think that buying more is gonna help, either. There's no There are too many people for us to buy hotels in order for us to get out of this, and they're doing it without any kind of A accommodating other services that people need, you know, job, mental health, transportation, all all of these things that people really need to kind of get off their feet. And so I just it seems like if you're going to do the most efficient and effective and quickest things to help people get back on their feet. Buying extremely expensive hotels is not the way to make the money go very far in the mayor even calls it transitional housing, so therefore it's temporary. What is the long term goal with these buildings? I think that it's just going to continue to be a revolving door of, you know, check in, check out check in check out but again without those services that you know, the city has kind of refused to acknowledge that you need other service that you can't have people addicted the substances while in that transitional housing, they don't want to put any of those that create period and place for people to qualify for that housing. And so what That means is it's just gonna be without addressing Problem, The underlying problems that are causing the homelessness. You're just gonna have a revolving door in those hotels and again. I mean, if it's places that people used to spend what $150 a night stay in e don't understand that this is this is the most effective way to do it. You know, Greg Abbott had set up You know, homeless kind of area housing area much much more cheaply. That really wasn't used. So I'm not. I'm not sure why We don't go that route rather than buying her clothes. And how many are they gonna buy? You know, we're going to start buying the Fairmont downtown and maybe they should buy the double. You know what? Basic by the W Good. There you go. And, uh well, here's the thing. I don't understand why you'd buy another hotel when the first one's not full. Right are the other three are not full, and you're absolutely right there. It just seems like it seems like what we're doing. And in a prime example of this I mean the canary in the coal Mine is is the beautiful four star arch that we have downtown. That's been a shining example of the city of Boston success, hasn't it? The arch downtown one of the highest crime blocks in our city? And so now, what we're doing is we're buying motels and spreading the arch around in different communities spreads a march that makes sense. Right? And and while while they're doing at their enable it continuing to enable homelessness right by making it easier and more convenient to kind of stay on the street if they want to, rather than helping them, you know, get clean or get back home or again addresses the issues, and it's e mean I could not believe my eyes last week when Save Austin now Finally was able to collect another 25,000 signatures. Get this petition on the ballot reinstates the homeless band. And the day after is when Mayor Adler decides to admit that the they're homeless program is not working. Kidding me. If you think about it. Homelessness has united this city against this city Council. It's something that has united us. Absolutely. What do you talk a little bit about? Go ahead. Talked a little bit about about the you know the I'm trying to think of Who's making money on this. You know what I mean? There's a commission check going someplace. The mayor's wife is in the real estate business. Is there some conflict of interest in all of this? Well, I don't know that there is And this is what? Well, first of all the people who own the hotels are making good money because I'm sure the city is paying a pretty premium for for those hotels, especially in this time where people aren't traveling. They're probably just lining up to get the city to write a huge check to buy their places. But what I really feel bad for the people who are living in those areas. You haven't really gotten to say in this process because this is I mean, just imagine, if all the sudden homeless shelter which again does not have any restrictions about you needing Tonto, be off of drugs when you are living there. What is? How would you feel if that opened in it, like next door to your house? I mean, It's just not good city planning. You take existing hotels that are supposed to be in hit areas for travelers who are checking out our city. You're coming here to do business and decide that that's a good place for a homeless shelter. It's just poor city planning, so I really think that this is gonna have a negative impact on those values. But if you guys are interested in in learning more about affordability in Austin in general, I'm going to be Speaking on a Texas public policy foundation virtual Livestream tomorrow at noon on Austin affordability so people can join that at Texas policy that calm Ellen.

Melissa is here Producing. We hope you're having an excellent Monday morning. How you doing today? Eric? I'm great. I'm feeling fine if I could give a special birthday shoutout to V Don Prior, Don Pryor's birthday today. Happy birthday. Don 137 years old. He looks great. Never looked a day younger than 20. Not bad looking for 136 holding up. Well, yeah, I think Happy birthday Don the Austin monitor is reporting that the city of Boston is starting to close some of the hotels that it's been operating for the homeless to stay in during the pandemic. And they've had quite a few. Eric. You know they have opened up as shelters, and the city is kind of closing some of them down right now because they say they didn't get his much money from the federal government as they had anticipated in the bill for all of this Is has been rising into the millions. They spent 10 million buying or leasing hotel so far, and they estimate their expenses are on the way to 30 million for this program. You know, I don't know who's who's going to foot the bill here. But you know the federal government definitely I would not depend on them. At this moment. I see these things probably still having to stay open, and I guess I don't know the state. The city is going to have to help pay for this. Um, but I don't. I don't. I kind of don't want this to end. I mean, it was a good thing. I think it was helping people keeping Corentin stay away. Get the numbers down, because, remember the homeless are still going to frequent a lot of our businesses, convenience stores and different things like that. Um, this was a good idea until I heard the 30 million and we're not going to get bailed out there until you heard about the 30 million and that's That's been my objection to buying these hotels or leasing these hotels that the City Council has gone into this without really thinking it through, and they have just poured money into this money that I think ended up being a waste. In some cases, we could have spent less than this and still done something to help the homeless some other way to come up. With facilities were ways for them to get shelter and and not be camping under all of the highways throughout town. Yeah, well, definitely that they were probably some better options. But hindsight is always 2020 on when things are moving fast within a pandemic. I don't know. I've never gone through one before I'd imagine that we were just trying to move things in, But I don't know how we solve the $30 Million. You know, ticket there Well, and part of this story is is that they started this hotel buying beer. And even before the pandemic, there was an office building on Ben White. That was empty and they paid. I think 2.5 to 3 times the appraised value for the building and they were going to turn that into a shelter for the homeless and then decided Wait a minute. It's too expensive to renovate this office building. So that started this pattern of rushing into this and throwing money at the problem without a clear plan. So that was part of my early objection of this thing, But now they're trying Tomkinson solid eight people into fewer hotels and the Austin Monitor says. That the city Through Echo, which is the end. Homelessness Coalition, the nonprofit that helps the city assist the homeless has actually been giving bus tickets to the homeless. For them to leave Austin and go to other areas where they might know people or have a chance to get more permanent housing. And we've heard for years how other cities have been giving the homeless bus tickets and sending them to Austin. And now Austin is starting to do some of that in reverse. And now Yeah. Now we're just polluting the earth with bus gas. You know there. I feel like there is it's just an internal struggle. There's not going to be an absolute Resolution here and all of these different things, whether it's helping somebody get somewhere where they might know somebody to spending absolutely too much money on on these hotels and different places and facilities. The intentions are great, but You know, I you have to go with me. It's just it's not. It's just a problem that may never go away. That's like something I don't know. It's It's just like getting back injury that you have to constantly deal with for for the rest of your life type thing, and you have to do everything you can to rehabilitate that. And I think there's evidence that as word has spread throughout America about the hotels in Austin that it's actually attracted more homeless. It's kind of a magnet to attract him here, knowing that they could end up in a hotel, courtesy of the taxpayers. Now this story says that one of the people who was told Look, you're gonna have to leave. One of the hotels was given a voucher for a bus ride. Helen Davis went to ST Louis. But when she got there, she couldn't find any place to stay. She actually ended up getting another bus ticket from the folks in ST Louis, and she's back in Austin. Oh, my God, You believe that it's that's crazy, But this this poor woman, I mean, I mean, you gotta have a little sympathy. She's got nowhere to stay. But, you know, shipping her back and forth from town to town is definitely not going to help. And I guess I don't know the last resort would be propping her up in one of our $30 million hotels here in Austin in that's what they're going to do now that she's back. She is in one of the hotels that's still open. But she still hoping to get more permanent housing a lot of people like the model they use in San Antonio. They have an excellent facility downtown with Everything that people need right there. Housing rehab job counseling, etcetera. But our city Council has refused to go in that direction. They just don't want to do the San Antonio model. Yeah, it seems like we we doom or facilitating than we do actually rehabilitating and I'd like to see more money thrown into those programs. If we can throw 30 million at the facilities there to help them out, then we can also throw money into programs. But the thing is, is that I don't think there's a lot of people that want to throw money in the program's either, especially if the ticket is around 30 million if it's around. You know millions of dollars. Sometimes it just doesn't seem like they think it's worth it. Well. We've been told by the mayor and the City Council that part of this effort would be when people are ready for it. They can go to drug rehab or alcohol treatment and the taxpayers would fund it. That's been part of the this program. For the many months it's been.

We are actually on location. We're not in in combo. No, we're or anything like that. We're just 35 year. 1 83. There you go. Yeah, Same thing. If you just now waking up, you haven't been paying attention. Steve Adler, who's been telling you to stay home, cancel events, weddings and funerals and things like that. He actually hosted a wedding for his daughter right here in town in early November. November, the ninth and then with family and friends traveled all the way to combo San Lucas for Ah, I don't know how many days they were there when they came back. I'm looking at the calendar and when when they came back, I'm trying to figure out should they still be in quarantine? The pictures were beautiful of the wedding and the honeymoon. Nikolishin. I'm glad his daughter had a beautiful wedding. I'm glad to ery. I'm glad they were able to host a religious event. Mm hmm. Just as he's telling folks just not have religious events because you might be a spreader is is the mayor of part of a super spreader group now here in town. Well done based on all the criteria. Yes, that's the man has spent hours on his Facebook live every night for the past many months telling you that if you go out and get in large groups, you're being selfish. And your actions could lead to death. That's correct. Save lives and stay home is what he said. So The people that may die here in Austin over the next few days is blood on his hands. I mean, based on his words, I don't believe it is but based on his words. Well, if you Yeah. I mean, he He probably has tremendous guilt in his heart, right? Exactly exactly right, because he wanted you to feel guilty for doing stuff going to church going to a wedding or a funeral. There's no possible way. That he can go in front of the people of Boston now and give us any advice regarding Kobe. He is he's turned that button off because he has no credibility. Nobody is going to listen to him. Now. There's no way he could lead today's City Council meeting. I don't think so. You have to be an honest person. And he's not Arthur in North Austin. Good morning. Good morning, Todd. And don. How are you fellas doing great. What's on your mind? Well, I wanna thank you, fellas for your show. You guys have a fantastic show. I wish we could run you guys all day long. You might want to talk to mark about that. But what does it pay marks here, actually. What are we talking? Well, thank you so much, man. I appreciate the kind words Everybody's talking about President Trump stepping up. He ought to be a later gotta just concede Theo Joe Biden and he needs to step up and be a leader. And yet the Democratic Party, the liberal left They display no type of leadership. You don't wanna do every business owner in Austin, Texas, on open up. Full capacity posted a screenshot of Mayor Adler on their windows indicate that he was in Mexico and that we're open for business. And I'd just like to see the policeman or anybody to shut these businesses down. You're right. Thought we ought to be living. We ought to be very much realizing that This. I was up has got to stop police officers like you just mentioned Arthur. They lose their jobs when they lie. This man this man has lied during a pandemic. He's the worst of the worst. Like I said earlier this morning movies and books have been written about scumbag politicians like him and he is the he is the stereotype of that scumbag politician that people hate on both sides of the aisle. Both sides even the left. Can't trust him. Right now. He preaches climate change, raises your taxes in the name of climate change, and then gets on a private jet to fly to combo. You know, President Trump anything that you've been critical of him about during covert, as far as you know, refusing to wear a mask here and there or traveling, you know, playing golf here in their traveling there, whatever Whatever he has done that seems to go against. You know Fauci is advice or anybody's advice. It's all been completely 100% out in the open. He's not trying to hide a single damn thing. Now, the only reason we know about this I mean, whoever. Whoever Who you know what the whistle blower Woz on this adverse story? I don't know. But we have been hearing rumors about this for a couple of weeks. At least, I think it was almost three weeks. You and I started, you know, kind of digging on this, but we never would have known about this Had not somebody brought this to light, at least trump. It was always out. Yeah, not wearing a mask. He was going to do it in front of tons of cameras and people. You never tried to hide the damn thing. Yeah, that's true. Yeah, it is a 21. And yeah, every City council member should be speaking. I just you know, during the break there at the top of the hour kind of scroll through some Twitter accounts of our city council members silent. Silent. Yeah, You know, we got a couple of runoff races. This is an opportunity for the voters of Austin, Texas, that still love Austin to speak up and say, Well, don't mess with Texas.

"Let's go to the phone. This is to sue. Thanks for hanging on. What can we help you with? Yeah. Hi. Yes, thank you. I'm so they a possum Hol Holly, and the decision is Holly that was planet about 2.5 years ago. It just seems to be in a real state of its not dead, but it sure doesn't seem to be growing well. So I was checking it out the other day, and I pushed on the trunk of the main trunk is maybe no stream four inches, caliper. And it could have pushed on it and I saw unfortunately, it doesn't seem to be really well secured into the ground. You know, it's not like it popped up, but You know, I think after 2.5 years, you know, it seems like roots really should have taken hold in. You wouldn't get that wiggle. But I've gotten enough legal in it that I think maybe it wasn't Planted correctly. I'm just wondering if you can suggest anything I can do because it it just doesn't seem to be thriving real well. Um If it wasn't planted per correctly, The first thing you would look for us to make sure wasn't planted too deeply. So at the base, start pulling the soil away from the base until you run into the first route. That is running out into the soil line. You should remove the soil to you were right at the top of that first route. That would be a proper planting death. No, excuse me. You don't have to remove it all the way from around the plan. But you want to uncover the trunk out to two or three inches to the point that the very first route you encounter is pretty much even with the soil level. That would be one thing I would look at. Number two. Once you've done that you can provide a thin layer of compost around the root zone. Don't pilot against the Trump. One of the things about that is is that it will help improve the quality of the soil, which will encourage the roots to grow deeper and get a better grip on the soil. Now a plant, believe it or not even a big tree. Needs to give a little bit. So that wiggle isn't by the fault a bad thing. It's just kind of the amount of the wiggle that's going on there and that that becomes an issue because what if it's wiggling because it really didn't put on many routes? All right, check the depth. Give it a little compost to get try there to see if it starts building up the soil and one other thing. Yeah. You know if you're not happy with it, and you're not real sure about it. You can pull it out. And the actor taken it out. The soil may give you a ton of clues as to the roots were cut. They were wrapped wrong. They never really took And you could replace it with a new one. Properly planted. Encouraged, Ext Edra. Um, that's always a trade off because while you had it 2.5 years where the growth time here, you would think it would establish itself. But there could have been an issue with the planting or the tree itself. So right. You can tell when one more season and see if you can get it to do better, or you can go now. I'm gonna put a different one. All right, all right. So if worst case scenario if itwas planted improperly in terms of maybe the roots, you know the root ball not being too used out or that kind of thing, And if it's If it's root bound, or you know where the roots related and start stretching out, I guess there's nothing you can really do at that point personal you wouldn't have probably only noticed that until you actually Take the plan out the ground, right? And then at that point, you basically just have to toss it and start over. Unfortunately, yes. Um yeah, We don't have a guy sent tool or method to determine if that root ball was damaged, and because it's a perennial. That's not a particularly super fast growing perennial. We're still at a stage where you don't know. Is there something wrong with the roots? Or is it just slow in starting to establish itself? So it's a bad catch 22. Right being the possum haul. It should have the right Berries. It's got like three red Berries hanging on it on and that maybe that may be an indicator that it's still kind of immature and hasn't really established itself yet, which would kind of go with the issue. That you don't see it growing well, yet, so it could simply be it hasn't established itself, but we have a really legitimate question of it hasn't established itself because there's some kind of problem here that we can't identify. So this is a time factor. If you're willing to give it another season. Things like making sure it's not planted too deep and giving it a good layer of compost around the soil to give it a good place to grow. You check in another You're checking in another season, and it's either fixed or you go. No bum. Sorry out, it comes. I'm gonna put a different one in or you can get on it now and put something else and it's it's a tough call. Sometimes it's a question of how much effort do you want to encourage it? Right. Okay. All right. Well, thanks. I just wanted to get your input on that I'd appreciate it. Yes, ma'am. Thanks for the call. Let's go. Some of this office. What do we have for time here? Of Susan. Marty. I see there. Can you hang out? We're gonna bump up against time here on won't be able to answer your question. We're gonna need to take a break. But one important thing that Sue is bringing up here, folks. It's a plant. Not a puppy. At some point if you're not happy with its performance, and you've planted it and checked it, and provided it the nutrients, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera. You've done the things that should have made it healthy. It's okay to pull it out of the ground and replace it. Sometimes you get a plant that genetically is just going. I'm not happy here or has something wrong with it that you can't see with the naked eye. Take it out. It's okay. You can put another one in. If you want to continue to care for it in an effort to fix it, You may be spending another season or two, and you're still not happy with it. It's okay. You can remove the plant, folks, This is gardening. Naturally, We're going to take a quick breaks. Uh, Susan Marty, a catch on the other side. It is important to take your mental health seriously. Getting the right treatment can save your life or the life of a loved one. This is Don Pryor..

Eight miles of I 35 would be transformed between 2 90, then White Boulevard, and they say the work could begin in 2025. We'd love to get your reaction to that. Because if you think about it, it Zraly a business story. I mean, if you think about it to transportation story, it affects families that effects. Ah, lot of businesses. Let's give him the business. How about this? Have you seen this story at another hotel may come into the possession of the Austin City Council today, as the council considers leasing the fair filled in on what 83 not far from Anderson Mill Road Homeless Services officer Bella Carmen says it would be a 60 Day lease, costing the taxpayers $910,000 to protect. High risk individuals and help reduce our community spread. Yeah, we're now buying these hotels to prevent the community spread of the virus, looking to be able to close down two of the five star lodges in December again deciding which ones those would be based on various factors. Now the least would also include 2 30 Day extensions, the goal would be to How's people who need isolation during the pandemic? And if approved, it would be the sixth motel that the city of Boston is a quality that through isolation or for homeless housing. Not too sure it's a good idea to put those that are sick along with the homeless in one location. That sounds like a weight. Oh, spread it. No, not a good idea. But we do want to, You know, people need to be isolated, and people need to get off the streets. But I'm just wondering, Are people starting to realize that you know, buying up a bunch of motels is maybe not the best avenue because they're not. They're not solving the problem when it comes to homelessness. No, no, I was I was thinking of there's still homeless. What, if anything, What's to get excited about here? What is to be glad about what's to feel optimistic about because we're not seeing any results at all? So It also far from any of the hotels that we fit millions of dollars. Actually, it appears that we spent way too much money. I wish we had a better idea as to how many people are actually being housed in some of these hotels, because if you got empty rooms and people are sleeping under bridges, you know, I just I don't know. I just wondered what the impact has been so far with now a six hotel under your belt. That's a really good question. I don't think any of us have any good feel for any impact whatsoever. Listen, Austin is losing another longtime restaurant. The brick oven, calling it quits and the end of this month after serving up, you know what fired pizza in Austin for how long decades decades old man Well, management, says Coburn 19 rising property taxes That hasn't helped at all. But the main reason for the closures because of a nearby H E B that is expanding and brick ovens lease was not renewed. So there you go. Brick oven first opened up in 1982. So just kind of a triple whammy. Yeah, the cove. It's affected them. Yeah. Property taxes have affected them, Of course. But they don't own this property. H E B does and they didn't renew their lease. I would wonder, though, if they will try to find another spot in open up again. I would hope they really, really got great pizza Stand. Adams. Is that its name? Stand Adams. That Adam's right? Yeah. And Adam Sandler Brick oven, his voice. Was such a a mainstay commercials here, here and here in Austin for the brick oven.

"Are gracing us with his presence this morning filling in for the vacationing don Pryor who is on a cruise ship in quarantine as we speak a little bit of deck and we should hear from him possibly later this hour if he has time to break away from that breakfast buffet what we talked about it we planned it is supposed to call which is which is code word for he'll probably forget and not call but that's coming up around seven twenty possibly don prior time all right now he'll be back middle of next week from his big cruise I want to update you on this petition and and and I'll be honest with you I would be very careful about the coronavirus conversation today because I don't know how to put up more there than it is I don't want to downplay it at all I'm really kind of leaning on the doctors in our community that are talking about this but more and more companies are deciding not to show up for south by southwest Facebook is now pulling out of south by due to the coronavirus fears it's the latest company to pull out of south by southwest the tech culture festival because of the fears of Colbert nineteen outbreak we had more people die up in Washington state for the past couple of days and we heard some really strange news yesterday afternoon from Greg Abbott the Attorney General about those are being quarantined in San Antonio and the woman that they let go Saturday they took a third test of her and instead of waiting for the test results to come back they let her go yeah and then it came back a week positive and they had to go find her and she saw she's eating dinner or eating lunch at the mall in our San Antonio one of the biggest malls in the state of Texas right there in the food court we did a great job with that one and it was one person that's an embarrassment right there for the CDC the governor the mayor of San Antonio were very clear that they were upset and they want some immediate changes on that front and now our city leaders and the south by southwest organizers are ready to turn Austin into one big a human he treated a lot more more business for a couple of weeks yeah and and they're gonna say we're gonna have nurses on stand by and there's plenty of hand sanitizer and let me give you an alternative for shaking hands that's their solution Todd four hundred thousand some people as from yesterday show I got a list of companies two pages long here right Facebook Microsoft adobe Google big game conference out in San Francisco all scrapping plans for huge get togethers people coming in from all over the world I'll ask again the question one of our city leaders and organizers know that these others don't that's a good question I sent much smarter than everybody else on more than thirty thousand people have signed a petition to postpone or delay south by southwest they see it's going on as scheduled to Amazon employees they have it you have come down with a corona virus in Italy Google coin base of Twitter all telling their employees to limits you know travel that sort of thing dell has made that announcement to their employees about limited travel to a various countries and that's a great question with thirty thousand people including more more business owners locally that are sounding the alarm that we should postpone or cancel south by southwest it's very possible that it will be canceled just based on the lack of attendance well I mean if you have more and more companies decide to pull the plug and not show up then you got no festival and if you're a business owner and you've got employees that are going to be around this human fungus that's going to invade Austin for a couple of weeks and then they leave and they're on their merry way and what do they leave behind yeah many sick people that they leave behind got a chance to listen to doctor on fox news yesterday evening during the dinner hour on this conversation and and and most people are fine you and I would probably be fine if we came down with a corona virus however the things we talk to the people we contact they may not be okay with it the elderly those with weakened immune systems that is been the the victims of all of this the elderly and those with weakened immune systems and everybody come to town for south by maybe get a little bit of a virus you don't know what it is you get back calmly in your around your parents your grandparents or others in the neighborhood and all the sudden you get a real issue I saw a great interview this morning it was a guy who heads up one of these companies here in Atlanta who's working with a big lab in Wuhan and they are working together on a vaccine and he said the tough part on this one it's the real so called disease X. yeah there's so much we still don't know about it right that's the tough part in the conversation we had yesterday some people say well it's just like the flu what's the difference that no there's there's still stuff that we don't know we're learning every day yeah but could be should parents seem to be different for everybody it's a moving target price it appears it appears jumping here at five one two eight three six zero five day also
