Why Lancaster, PA became the refugee capital of America

"About two years into their. Stay at a Kenyan refugee camp after fleeing Somalia Mustafa Nor and his family found that they had been selected to be resettled in the US and initially. They had mixed feelings so when the country selects you. You're notified two years in that. Hey you know. United States House elected you on. Dad has in the refugee camp. That always comes as a great news or bad news because because the United States takes the longest to process anybody to have a harder process. They have hottest glued to need how to bug run checks and he's right the vetting process for refugees coming to the US intense. There's multiple interviews and background checks and security checks by different branches of the US government fingerprints tests for contagious diseases. It can take years from. His family took a decade but eventually as with other refugees who make it through the whole process. The family was paired with a resettlement agency. Mustafa and his family were paired with Church World Service. Which has a branch in Lancaster? It's nonprofit that received funding from the federal government and from private donors and it sets up refugee families with a few months of housing some counseling services food and clothing and then they tried to Find your job right away because once you around here you have to start a pain. Bake your bill for the government for bringing you a lot of people don't know this but yes refugees payback the US government for the cost of flying here from Asaf big family. Those were not cheap. Flights is around eleven to twelve hundred per person so family of ten ten people. You get a bill of almost ten thousand bedrooms. He stuff says he found Lancaster City and Lancaster County unexpectedly welcoming to his refugee family and to other refugee families and that in fact is the city's reputation in two thousand sixteen before the trump administration started limiting how many refugees could come to the US. The number of refugees were resettled in Lancaster. City hit a peak of four hundred and seven as a share of the city's population. That's almost twenty three times more refugees resettled than in the US as a whole which is why. The city was labeled the refugee capital of America by the BBC. So why is Lancaster able to resettle so many refugees? One reason is resources. For example Church World Service. The Resettlement Agency is able to partner with local organizations to provide services beyond just the basics beyond the initial housing and food and clothes for example. There's a nonprofit that provides healthcare to refugees English language tutors to school district and universities to help with education employment programs and companies that will actively try to hire refugees and train them. Sheila Masto Prieto runs the Lancaster Office. Church World Service and she says that all these resources make it possible for Lancaster to accept even the hardest cases. Like when there's a huge refugee family of ten or fifteen people or when a refugee has a medical issue and can't work or if a refugee only speaks a relief obscure foreign language. There are no cases in this area that we that we would refuse so we do have the option when a cases sent us by our national office to say they basically they're saying will you accept this case so we always do and it's not just tangible resources. There's something else that has given Lancaster the ability to absorb refugees. Its history starting in the early eighteenth century members of the Mennonite and Amish churches were fleeing persecution in Europe and started moving to Lancaster. The county still has a huge amish and mennonite population and the value of welcoming people in need of a new home has remained. Steve Note a professor at Elizabethtown College spoke with us at the Mennonite historical society which features exhibits about the Amish Mennonite history of Lancaster. Well in the in the late nineteen seventies and early nineteen eighties for example Mennonites in this area were Were deeply involved in resettlement of refugees from Southeast Asia from from Vietnam Cambodia Laos And that's that was motivated both by No Christian humanitarian concerns and also concerns that As mennonites as conscientious objectors pacifists and in fact Mustafa's own experience right after arriving. Lancaster reflects this. My first job was I worked with the Amish. I used to work for a convenient. That build garages and sheds so used to install windows. He did well enough at this job installing windows for these sheds that was hired by a company called E. Impact Marketing which provides marketing for amish companies in the area in which train Mustafa in web design. Mustafa would end up becoming their head web developer. And then he started thinking more broadly he started a company called bridge which is a website where people can sign up to have dinner in the home of a refugee family in the area. The refugee family will cook the meal and share their story and the family will also said a fever. The dinner which it gets to keep bridge charges a service fee which is how it makes money. Mustafa original pitch for bridge one. A business plan competition which provided the funding to get. It started. My vigil is our GONNA instead of instead of free training or given a new skill. Why not give them a platform where they can on an income with what they already know would not have which is their culture under food. Adamos AMAC is Lancaster based economist. And he says it. Refugees and immigrants contribute to a local economy by helping its population grow and thereby giving new businesses more people to sell to customers and also people hire employees. Adam says it will stop the story also demonstrates some more subtle ways that immigrants and refugees contribute a moving to neighborhoods it. Others might find less desirable and they start interesting businesses and they really contribute to the diversity of consumer experiences downtown in downtown Lancaster. You can eat at Vietnamese place. You can be at a Nepalese place. There's just a huge amount of variety missed offices. His company is making money and he even has plans to expand into neighboring your county and the ads. That historian shows the symbiotic relationship between the Lancaster economy. And it's refugees and it goes something like this. The success of the economy makes it possible for the city to offer resources to these refugees. So that they can prosper and they're prospering feeds right back into the success of the Lancaster economy. So what happens? One hundred fifty person comes here to community. This community has done a very good job of harnessing that refugee person as a whole from employment to training to job opportunities to enterpreneurship training. So I I. I went through those different of coming here. Receiving welcome Ho Ho finding a stable job and then developing a skill which is the development Web Development. Are they using that skill to create a company? Now so it's a great circle on its own. It's something which is very. I don't WanNa say unique. What's special about Lancaster?

Let's stop beating around the Bush guys. Let's get started with today's episode. Today's episode of Felony Friday. We're going to be talking about a very unique and important program right here in Pennsylvania state where I'm located. This is the other side of the state. I'm in Pittsburgh. This is over in elizabethtown borough. We're going to be talking about a program called second chance P._A.. It's a pre arrest diversion program for addicts addicts and it's the elizabethtown borough and North West regional police departments who've joined up with blueprints for addiction recovery and they're establishing resources that favour rehabilitation over incarceration hope over helplessness helplessness life over death and today. I'm joined by blueprints for Addiction Recovery C.. O. Christopher drives box say hello Christopher everybody felons not and Elizabeth town police chief Edward M Cunningham how John just call me just call you Ed yes okay. I'm glad we got that out of the way I was going to be calling you <hes> chief Cunningham the entire show so let's Chris has been on the show before I think about I think it was fifty episodes ago Episode One Thirty Four Felony Friday so you know we don't need to hear Chris this whole back story you know he went into that of that episode. We don't need to rehash that we're going to be I want to focus on this program because it's so unique and I think <hes> from what you from you guys are doing and really implementing <hes> in your local community. I think I wanted to shine a light on that so Chris but if you could just tell us a little a bit quickly for people that haven't heard that episode is a little bit about blueprints for addiction recovery and why you're so passionate about helping people suffer from addiction so blueprints for addiction recovery is a state licensed drug and Alcohol Treatment Project. We operate out of five separate locations here in south central Pennsylvania <hes>. I'm personally very passionate about this. Criminal Justice work with chief Cunningham and the other police in this area because I myself was arrested and the M._A.. Felon <hes> I spent nearly seven hundred days of my life in jail for drug related offenses and things related to my addiction and really really loves working with progressive people like Ed to help other people avoid the struggles that I had to go through. Thank you for sharing that Christopher and <hes> ed if you could just tell us <hes> what attracted you to a career in law enforcement and what's your career progression been if you've been elizabethtown the whole time if you have you moved around a little bit now I actually I am a third generation police officer. My Dad and grandfather were both police officers and I got my start. I worked at a couple of small departments. Uh south of Pittsburgh part time until I finally in nineteen ninety five got hired full time by the city of Pittsburgh police and I had a wide range of experiences working at twenty. Three years with Pittsburgh worked my way up I finally when I left Pittsburgh. My rank was lieutenant and I I saw the damage that was done by drug abuse and drug use and and I saw that we were arrested in a lot of people for <hes> for small amounts of drugs and when what they really needed was help the problem was i. I just didn't have the resources to do anything about it. In Pittsburgh on January of last year I got hired as the chief of police here in Elizabethtown January eighteen and just through the progression of doing doing my job I met Chris and we we came up with this really really interesting idea of trying to let the police be the gateway to helping people who need help get help in my career I've done I've done some works some work in drug work some in crisis negotiations some in patrol. I've I've had very widely varied career on but this is one of the things that I've always been passionate about is trying to get people help who who need the help. That's fantastic so what what community south of Pittsburgh I live south of Pittsburgh. I actually worked out in Hanover Township in Washington county out where it's now. I guess it was the Star Lake amphitheater yeah so I was one of the officers that worked there. Her worked real hard in the summertime and not at all in the winter not not much going on there in the winter. That's so I'm curious. So this program you guys met. Each Other was at Chris did did you did you approach ed or how did this <music> come about that. I'm not a thousand percent sure <hes> think maybe my office reached out to him as the new chief of police and we just wanted to talk a little bit about blueprints and what we could do to help residents of Elizabethtown and really just introduce them and little did I know that Ed was a progressive police chief that really wanted to make an impact in people's lives and change the way things are done in Pennsylvania. He can talk a little bit more about the small meeting that turned into this awesome program it it started off as just a when I first got here I was trying to meet as many business owners as I quoted and with Chris being a business owner here in town we got it set up through a mutual acquaintance and just plan to have a fifteen minute meeting and we started talking and that fifteen minute meeting <hes> initially turned into about a three hour afternoon and that's where we really got the ball rolling for the second chance program Yeah I do remember Chris called me. This was probably before the program started. I was <hes> we have a mutual friend in DEL currency ran for U._S.. Senate and I remember Chris Talking about how excited he was about this program <hes> and just the potential of it before it even rolled out so <hes> I know that how long has has this been implemented for like. What's the what's the time for when was the kickoff date percent? The official kickoff date was January first of this year we were actually doing some test cases through the end of November and into December and got a few you people connected with the service as we were trying to work out the all of the details but the official launch was January first of this year okay and just to give some background on how it works so it's a pre arrest diversion diversion program for addicts so what types of cases what types of situations would this program and feel free. I should probably say whoever can best address the question just jump in because both address it. I mean this isn't directed to any one of you but how does that work on case by case basis chief the things the things that we're looking at for pre arrest and pre arrest diversion is just <hes> one one portion of the overall program and Bay we look at the second chance <hes> when we were building only Chris and I were building at we took the best parts of a number of different programs from around the country to put it together for something that we thought would be unique and really address all of the pro the problems that we saw that we were facing and for for ray pre arrest diversion it would be something that's a small level <hes> a small amount of possession or paraphernalia charge or maybe something like <hes> Chris and I were just talking about this earlier here today. How a lot of times theft cases are really the the the addiction is the motivator behind theft case and so if we have a small theft case that might be a a that might be a candidate for for the pre arrest diversion <hes> basically it's? It's not it's summary cases very low level misdemeanors. Were obviously not going to be ignoring felonies <hes>. We're not going to be ignoring anything violent <hes> when I'm saying felonies. I'm saying things that the criminal justice system says has to be addressed through an arrest <hes> it's going to be the smaller ones wants the smaller cases that we would have the discretion at the magistrate's Office to knock down to a fine or something like that those are going to be the kind of cases that were that are the true pre arrest diversion <hes> some of the larger cases. We're not abandoning those people if a person comes to us it or if we come in contact with the person who needs the help but who is facing a more serious charge than the police officers go into more of advocate role and we still make contact with the recovery specialist we still make contact and make a referral through the second chance program and and we move into helping them get the help that they need once they've addressed the legal issues that have to be addressed <hes> but another big part of the program is that we've also turned the police stations nations into <hes> gateways into to safe places that a person can come and say <hes> you know. Excuse me but I need help. I can't do this anymore. I need help and if they happen to have. Move a little bit of paraphernalia on them or a small amount of drugs or something then that would be something that we're not going to arrest them for asking for help. That's great so so from there once <hes> so say someone walks into the police station say one of these arrests are is made or I guess before they're arrested what happens then is blueprints contacted or how does how does that play out. The officers can call and the officers have received training on how to do an initial assessment of you know. Is this person a good candidate for the second chance program and we have a phone number through blueprints for the <hes> the certified recovery specialists and there are several of them that Chris has on on call for us and we have a number that we can call twenty twenty four hours a day seven days a week anytime of the day and we have a commitment through the second chance program that someone you know a live person will answer the phone and we'll talk to us and will if if it's appropriate will come out whatever time it is will come out to where we need them and begin the assessment <unk> process to get this person into help immediately and that's one of the things that makes aches our program unique among all the other programs in the country that we were able to find is that we have the C._R._S.. Who will come to the scene of where we are and begin immediately working to get the person help C._R._S. stands for certified recovery specialists so that's somebody who has trained to meet a person where they are a person who is pre recovery to try to get them into recovery Br and certified are loving overlords at the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania so Chris this this.

Did I know that Ed was a progressive police chief that really wanted to make an impact in people's lives and change the way things are done in Pennsylvania and he can talk a little bit more about the small meeting that turned into into this awesome program it started off as just a when I first got here I was trying to meet as many business owners as I could and with Chris being a business owner here in town we got it <unk> set up through a mutual acquaintance and just plan to have a fifteen minute meeting and we started talking and that fifteen minute meeting <hes> initially turned into about a three hour afternoon and that's where we really got the ball rolling for the second chance program Yeah I do remember Chris called me. This was probably before the program started. I was <hes> we have a mutual friend in DEL currency ran for U._S.. Senate and I remember Chris Talking about how excited he was about this program <hes> and just the potential of it before it even rolled out so <hes> I know that how long has has this been implemented fort like what's the what's the time was the kickoff date per se the official kickoff date was January first of this year we were actually doing some test cases through the end of November and into December and got a few people connected with the service as we were trying to work out the all of the details but the official launch was January first of this year and just to give some background on how it works so it's a a pre arrest diversion program for addicts so what types of cases what types of situations would this program and feel free. I should probably say whoever can best address the question just jump in because both address it. I mean this isn't directed to any one of you but how does that work on case by case basis good chief the things the things that we're looking at for pre arrests and pre arrest diversion is just one one portion of the overall program and Bay we look at the second chance <hes> when we were building in Chris and I were building at we took the best part of a number of different programs from around the country to put it together for something that we thought would be unique and really address all of the pro the problems that we saw that we were facing and and for a for a pre arrest diversion it would be something that's a small level <hes> a small amount of possession or paraphernalia charge or maybe something like Chris and I were just talking about about this earlier today. How a lot of times theft cases are really the the the addiction is the motivator behind theft case and so if we have a small theft a case that might be a that might be a candidate for for the pre arrest diversion <hes> basically it's? It's not it's summary cases very low level misdemeanors. Were obviously not going to be ignoring hiring felonies. Were not going to be ignoring anything violent <hes> when I'm saying felonies. I'm saying things that the criminal justice system says has to be addressed through an arrest. It's it's going to be the smaller ones the smaller cases that we would have the discretion at the magistrate's Office to knock down to a fine or something like that those are going to be the kind of cases that were that are the true pre arrest this diversion of some of the larger cases. We're not abandoning those people if a person comes to us it or if we come in contact with the person who needs the help but who is facing a more serious charge urge than the police officers go into more of an advocate role and we still make contact with the recovery specialist we still make contact and make a referral through the second chance program <hes> and we move into helping them get the help that they need once they've addressed the legal issues that have to be addressed but you know another big part of the program is that we've also turned the police stations into <hes> gateways into to safe places that a person can come and say <hes> you know excuse me but I need help. I can't do this anymore. I need help and if if they happen to have a little bit of paraphernalia on them or a small amount of drugs or something then that would be something that we're not going to arrest them for asking for help. That's great so so from there once <hes> so say some walks police station or say one of these arrests are is made or I guess before they're arrested. <hes> what happens then is blueprints contacted or how does how does that a play out. The officers can call and the officers have received training on how to do an initial assessment of you know. Is this person a good candidate for the second chance program and we have a phone number through blueprints for the <hes> the certified recovery specialists and there are several of them that Chris has on on call for us and we have a a number that we can call twenty four hours a day seven days a week anytime of the day and we have a commitment through the second chance program that someone you know a live person will answer the phone and we'll talk to us and and will if if it's appropriate will come out whatever time it is will come out to where we need them and begin the assessment <unk> process to get this person into help immediately and that's one one of the things that makes our program unique among all the other programs in the country that we were able to find is that we have the C._R._S.. Who will come to the scene of where we are and begin immediately working to get the person help C._R._S. stands for certified recovery specialists so that's somebody who has trained to meet a person where they are a person who is pre recovery to try to get them into recovery and certified by our loving overlords at the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania so Chris <hes> this this initiative second chance for P._A.? How's it how's it funded is it a part of blueprints is it a separate entity is is entirely separate entity from blueprints? I obviously am the C._E._O.. Theo blueprints the blueprints is in everything that I do <hes> but second chance Pierre is a completely separate initiative <hes> up until very recently it has been completely self funded by blueprints on myself personally <hes> we are very close to attaining nonprofit status with the great overlords federal government and at that point we will then shift to an entirely different structure where we have a board that includes several notable folks and chief hunting included <hes> and will then be able to begin fundraising and have it become its own self supporting entity and hopefully show everybody <hes> that private citizens can do a lot to help this epidemic excellent excellent so this went into effect several months ago. Can you give us any idea of what sort of impacts been made so far. Is there any anything you can share cheap. That's okay we've had today. We've had fifty six referrals. Mostly through the the three. The three partners in the very beginning were elizabethtown police North West regional police and Susquehanna Valley E._M._S.. We were the three who got in at the very beginning and we're slowly bringing in other police departments and other E._M._S. providers to to start making this program available to people where they need it <hes> we we actually have training scheduled for two other police departments coming up in the next month or two and I Chris and I both have meetings with several other chiefs to try to expand the program but at this point we've had fifty six referrals and we're doing pretty much anything that we can think of to get this help out to other people <hes> <hes> one of the things that that were were doing is that we got Chris Involved in coming to our D._U._i.. Checkpoints and we have a blueprints specialists recovery specialists. I'm sorry a second chance recovery very special list coming to all of our stationary checkpoints so if we find somebody at a d._U._i.. Checkpoint who needs who is suffering from addiction and needs help were able to get it for them immediately right there on the scene at the at the the stationary checkpoint and we have we have some very notable success stories are very first referral to the program. Actually we kicked off at what at noon Chris like at noon on January first and we got our first call at seven o'clock that night and it was a <hes> a woman who was suffering from alcohol addiction who was at risk of losing her nursing job and second chance was able to connect are with Rehab and with the services that she needs and she was able to WHO <hes> complete the beginning part of that and my understanding is. She's doing very well with beating that addiction. That's fantastic if I can add to that John Thank jumping that was actually before January first I that was before we had even officially launched at officers that we've done the training with encountered a wonderful lady passed out behind a dumpster and when she woke up from her alcohol induced stupor she got a little progressive with the officer thankfully that officer had been through our training and he understood a little bit about compassion in times of crisis and a little bit about the brain science of addiction and he had four thought to say hey. Let's call the cert recovery specialists and get her some help now now if she had gotten charged with attacking a police officer or public drunkenness or whatever it might have been might have been at risk of losing her nursing license and through this program our first case <hes> saved ladies nursing license saved her job or means of living and I'm assuming that without alcohol she's probably even a much better nurse than she was previously so just in case.

We're going to be talking about a very unique and important program right here in Pennsylvania the state where I'm located. This is the other side of the state. I'm in Pittsburgh. This is over in elizabethtown borough. We're going to be talking about a program called second chance P._A.. It's a pre arrest diversion program for addicts and it's the elizabethtown borough North West regional police departments who've joined up with blueprints for addiction recovery and they're establishing resources that favour rehabilitation over ver- incarceration hope over helplessness helplessness life over death and today. I'm joined by blueprints for Addiction Recovery C.. O. Christopher drives box say hello Christopher everybody thelen and Elizabethtown police chief Edward M Cunningham how John just call me just call you Ed yes okay. I'm glad we got that out of the way I was going to be calling you chief Cunningham the entire entire show so let's Chris has been on the show before think about. I think it was fifty episodes ago Episode One Thirty Four Felony Friday so you know we don't need to hear Chris this whole back story you know he went into out of that episode. We don't need to rehash that. We're GONNA WANNA focus on this program because it's so unique and I think <hes> from you from you. Guys are doing and really implementing <hes> in your local community. I think I wanted to shine a light on that so Chris but if you could just tell us a little bit quickly for people that haven't heard that episode is a little bit about blueprints for addiction recovery and why you're so passionate about helping people suffer from addiction so blueprints for addiction recovery is a state licensed drug and Alcohol Treatment Project. We operate out of five separate locations here in south central Pennsylvania. I'm personally very passionate about this criminal justice work with chief Cunningham in the other police in this area because I myself I self was arrested and a m a felon. I spent nearly seven hundred days of my life in jail for drug related offenses and things related to my addiction and really really loves working with progressive people like Ed to to help other people avoid the struggles that I had to go through. Thank you for sharing that Christopher and <hes> ed if you could just tell us <hes> what attracted you to a career in law enforcement and what's your career your progression in Elizabethtown the whole time if you have you moved around a little bit now I actually I am a third generation police officer. My Dad and grandfather were both police officers and I got got my start. I worked a couple of small departments south of Pittsburgh part time until I finally in nineteen ninety five got hired full time by the city of Pittsburgh police and I had a wide range of experiences is working at twenty three years with Pittsburgh worked my way up I finally when I left Pittsburgh. My rank was lieutenant and I I saw the damage that was done by not drug abuse and drug use and and I saw that we were arrested in a lot of people for <hes> for small amounts of drugs and when what they really needed was help <hes> the problem was I just didn't have the resources to do anything about it. In Pittsburgh on January of last year I got hired as the chief of police here in Elizabethtown January eighteen and just through the the progression of doing my job I met Chris and we we came up with this really really interesting idea of trying to let the police be the gateway a to helping people who need help get help in my career I've done I've done some works. Some work in drug work some in crisis negotiation some in patrol so I've had a very widely varied career but this is one of the things that I've always been a purdy passionate about is trying to get people help who need the help. It's fantastic so what what community south of Pittsburgh I live south of Pittsburgh. I actually worked out in Hanover township in Washington County outwear. It's now I guess it was the Star Lake amphitheater. Oh yeah so I was one of. The officers that worked there worked real hard in the summertime and not at all in the winter not not much going on there in the winter. That's so I'm curious. So this program you guys met. Each Other was at Chris did did you did you approach editor. How did this come about that? I'm not a thousand percent sure <hes> I think maybe my office reached out to him as the new chief of police and we just wanted to talk a little bit about blueprints and what we do to help residents of Elizabethtown and really just introduce him than little. Did I know that Ed was a progressive police chief that really wanted to make an impact in people's lives and change the way things are done in Pennsylvania and he can talk a little bit more about the small meeting that turned into into this awesome program it started off as just a when I first got here I was trying to meet as many business owners as I could and with Chris being a business owner here in town we got it <unk> set up through a mutual acquaintance and just plan to have a fifteen minute meeting and we started talking and that fifteen minute meeting <hes> initially turned into about a three hour afternoon and that's where we really got the ball rolling for the second chance program Yeah I do remember Chris called me.

"I'm not on Instagram but my question is if you're being bullied. Are you able to block that person like you can't on on come other Social Media Katie yes you can walk them and what happens when you block them as two accounts essentially don't see each other and the more they kind of disappear to one another on the platform but what instagram and found is that teenagers are really loathed to do this for two reasons one. It's really obvious when someone's been blocked <hes> in so that betrays hurt feelings for teen the bully knows that they've gotten to them and to <hes> then they can no longer understood that bullies doing. Maybe the bully still talking about them. Maybe there's still spreading rumors about them. They WanNa have that continued oversights <hes> and this is where that new feature that Sherry mention <hes> restrict comes in where they're trying to they ferret out a middle ground here where they can where user can kind of restrict the movements of a bully can have more oversight <hes> without the bully being fully aware <hes> that that anything's happened AH wreck in Elizabethtown New York hi you're on the Air Hi my question is about whether <hes> defamation laws against libel and slander don't apply in some of these cases if you were to make comments affected somebody's reputation made untrue comments about somebody in any other forum you would be liable for the consequences of that. We're depending on facebook and instagram to put programs in place to keep this from happening but when they do happen cannot can we not use defamation laws to <hes> sort of recourse. Thank you right good question. I Katie alternate back to you well. I'm not a first amendment lawyer so I can't tell you the exact tales of has something like that would play out. I will tell you that there are different guidelines for how public figures and private individuals are treated when it comes to guidelines about bullying <hes> we saw this news news this week you know sort of related to president trump not being <hes> able to block people on twitter right. There are different rules for public figures versus private individuals <hes> when it comes to issues around in speech <hes> <hes> and <hes> while instagram and certainly going to be aware of that when it comes to certain public figures I. I don't think that when it comes to private individuals that's a really practical. <hes> you know or quick means Eh enforcement when teenagers sitting in a room you know deeply hurt that someone is claimed that they're you know promiscuous. You know I don't think bringing in the courts and laws like that will bring quick resolution even if it did it apply to private individual Sherry Bellman. You've been working with kids for decades <hes>. Do you think these new changes on instagram will actually make a difference. You're seeing these kids. Everyday online cyber bullying got about thirty seconds here. I hope they will make a difference. I'm I'm a little cautious and would like to see some of the numbers that they're gathering so we can make informed decisions and decide. Is this the right approach. We also need to engage engage with young people. Would you use this feature. How would that affect your behavior? What do you need in the way of support if you are targeted and I think we need to <hes> stop operating silos academics?.

But I think when they start to see say the holiday sales data and so on then they're going to have to refocus on upset Chris as well. Stocks have drastically. Rebounded from their Christmas Eve plunge and elizabethtown man is charged with murder in the beating death of a four month old boy Twenty-four-year-old jockey hall is accused of killing his girlfriend's son. The coroner says the baby had multiple injuries throughout his body, including skull and rib fractures, all who refuses to cooperate with police is being held on a half a million dollar bond secondary medical checks on every young migrant in US custody had ordered following the death of another child held by customs and border protection. Because of the concern of a flu outbreak. The CDC notified the Commissioner told me that one of the major issues is the record number of families trying to cross into the US among them about twenty four thousand children just this month alone in all time record a humanitarian crisis. The agency doesn't have the resources to handle right now. That's ABC's. Matt gut men so far to children a seven and eight year old have died while NC BP custody. You're next news update is coming out four o'clock. I'm here. Hansen NewsRadio eight forty W H A S, Kentucky, Anna's breaking news, weather, and traffic station. Yes. So the newest this is about this happened. A couple of minutes ago. The did you see this? Jodi, just mentioned kind went by by me the surf Pro Bowl has been cancelled due to lightning a lightning delays. So they've decided forget it. We're going to cancel the whole thing. Obviously can't make it up. It's a bowl game. Yeah. Yeah. Well when ballgames can skip bowl games. We shouldn't get mad at key players. I bowl games earn. So there's such trouble never seen any bowl game straight up being cancelled before that is just weird. Isn't it weird especially it's three thirty? I get it. If it's ten pm eleven pm, and you're only in the first quarter, cancel it. But what I don't get this people. Just don't care. Well, yeah, nobody cares. It's a bowl game the cat's out of the bag there by saying look, none of these the bowl games Novum count. But they count in your paycheck. There is a I think it was Washington Post just in an article on Jim McVeigh. He's the bowl chair for the outback bowl. You wanna know what his salary is? No, not really, okay. This is what he does his job is to negotiate contracts and sell sponsorships and tickets to one football game a year. That's all he does. He sell sponsorships or negotiate. So he doesn't even sell 'em. He just helps to go. She ate them. And then helps sell tickets to one football game the outback bowl every year his salary one million dollars. Jesus. Meanwhile, is awesome. Meanwhile. The charity that they always they're always have some sort of charity attached to it makes them feel better. The charity gets about two hundred and fifty thousand dollars a year, the chair that really doesn't do much is a million bucks. Now the Rosebowl now. This guy's a bargain the Rose Bowl chairman four hundred thousand. Wow. And that thing brings in about ten times what the outback bowl takes in. I've always said since I I, you know for twelve years. I did sports. I got on the inside. And I went to these bowl games. And you get to meet all these bowl chairman for most of them. They're volunteers that are part of the community their doctors their business owners that wanna wear the orange jacket or the green jacket or whatever it is like derby, derby the festival and they wear those goofy jackets, but they're part of the committee quote. And they volunteer, but the upper level guys five or six people on we'll say just man, I'm sure there's women involved. But I'm sure a male dominated gig. They get paid hundreds of thousands of dollars even the lower level people will make six hundred thousand dollars. It's ridiculous. We'll remember Tony. There's not enough money in college athletics. Hey, the players to pay the players. There's just not the outback bowl brings in profit eleven point nine million gives two hundred and fifty thousand charity in only one million dollars to Jim McVeigh the bowl chair. Okay. If you can get lucky enough to land on one. That's why create them they create these bowls. And it was like why do we have thirty seven bowl games because it's a money grab just like everything else. Marketing marketing she's at bowl yet. The TV game. You get four and a half hours of national television, sell it. And that's where they get their money. Right. And then of course, there's incentives for meat city. Right. They want a bowl game in their city. So they're not going to charge him for anything. They'll give them special hotel packages say it won't pay for anything. They'll get treated like kings by their town taking a dinner, and these hotels will say, well, where are you going to put these two teams? Well, I don't know. What's your total have rights, and that's what they do all year. Eight schoo- fee, and it's in the games really don't count. You. Can't tell me what the results of the bowl games were last year. Can you tell me who won the Rose Bowl last year? No, no. I can't not follow sports pretty closely. The Orange Bowl. No. I was an undergrad at western Kentucky, and the hilltop has had a bowl game in the Bahamas. Yes, they took their entire program their fan base to a different country to go to the Bahamas. Yeah. It's just all about, mommy. The Popeye's chicken Bahamas bowl. Yeah. I will tell you this. I I'm all for the players because they get one more game in uniform seniors that are just utility guys. And they and they've just played football. Because football's the only sport where you don't play it ever. Again. You can always play a pickup basketball game baseball game in your backyard, golf you can play all those sports. You cannot go all them football. You never put the helmet on. Again. You never have referees. You never have eleven eleven. You never have kickoff. She never have you never experienced a football game ever again. So for kids that are seniors graduated and they get a holiday trip, and they get a goody back. Remember each player not a violation, by the way, they get an ipad in a four hundred dollar apple watch station, PlayStation stuff like that. That's not a violation because that's part of the system. That set up. But if you sell your game tickets to your cousin for a hundred bucks a piece urine eligible now. That's a good point. It means so much for those guys that won't ever play again. And that's why at the high school level that Friday night lights mystique. Yeah. Something you can't beat something. You'll never have again. That's right. They'll play offs. And that's why I don't complain about these people when when Kentucky went to six classes instead of four I did not complain because it meant, you know, seniors getting to play a playoff game that maybe never have played a playoff game in their life. And they get beat by fifty in the first, but it also has built. Yes, they do. That's the reward is fifty but you got programs like to sales and central that have won multiple state championships that have built new facilities. Got better coaches got better players and built not just the football program. But the school is done better overall because of the state championships through football. And that's only a result because they went to six classes into sales could win one and two a in central could win one and three. So there's some good and the bad but the bowl games are nothing. But all about the money we got to take a break back after this don't even any fill in for Terry minors. Dwight will join us here any moment now. Newsradio eight forty W H S farmer.

"Six here on the radio program and lots lots we've gone through the cavenaugh stop. Hit you with one eight dairy horrific horrific incident. You must know about that in a moment. Also chatting with Lieutenant governor, Dan forest. He literally as we speak as he's being interviewed on his way to meet Trump. The president is going to be touring North Carolina along with governor, ROY Cooper and some other officials. I don't know who's all on that. But just getting an idea of the totality of it because it can be hard to do in a state this big especially with the new snippet here in a new snippet there. That's why during the coverage. One of the most useful things that we were doing was talking to people from all over the state and get an idea of not just new Bern Wilmington. But what's going on one of the names that kept coming up was elizabethtown? Mike's call in from elizabethtown, and yeah, so you guys running up on the radar as the flood waters were rising elizabethtown for people don't know south of Fayetteville kind of towards on your way to white lake if you're unfamiliar with the geography, but. The cape. Fear river runs right through the middle of town. Correct. All right. So give us what what's going on there? And what are you folks expecting? Well. Would have crested where early in the morning. I haven't been outside at it yet. But the problem is there is such a rap. Debris. Donald. The upstream bridge. Last night. They had survey crews out there checking the alignment of this is just to be clear. This is the seven oh one bridge. This is the popular was a popular poplar street bridge. The main. Seven. Oh one. Okay. So this is the main artery in and out between elizabethtown, and I guess getting back to the interstate so to speak or at least headed north. Up. Two. No out there. Right. Let's see I got twenty inches. Your your house? Everybody says. Nobody around here. No. Well, I'd say, yeah. I. Service. But what I'd be happy to ask when we have Ray Stagich and a few minutes where they're measuring point elizabethtown is he just keep listening. He can at least tell you what one other little point. I have friends who else. And a lot of places. It wasn't. Hogs grounding on the prowl. The. Hog houses, go out and basically. Dying. Right. Yeah. Hogs don't they don't? They don't externally the cool themselves in a very efficient manner. So it's a very good point, sir. Absolutely. So let me fight. Let me do this just a quick question for you. Are they doing something? Or is there anything that can be done to relieve? What is essentially I probably just a bunch of trees are now pressing against your bridge are the way that they can go in there and chainsaw. So that's relieved the pressure is the water just too high. Water is just too right now, it would be it would be. Yeah. That's what I kind of figured out just wanted to ask. So well, let let me say this, sir. I I hope you don't lose your bridge. And I hope that when the water does receipt, and you are able to clear that they are very thorough in figuring out what that means for the stability bridge going forward. Lumberton to gain. I don't know about. Give up on that little town. Well geography is not their friend that is that is for sure. There may be fair. But it's only six feet Abobo. Yeah. Stay stay safe, sir. Thank you for the update. Okay. You're welcome. All right. Good one there. Mike. Yeah. And so it's those little pockets of stories that you're hearing that unless you live in the community. Are not very impactful or maybe don't even hear about in general. That is going to be the death. Ballot by thousand cuts when they tried to get a handle on the totality of everything here. All right. Let's see here. Here's a cabin on thing. Politics, politics, politics. The basically the dams as well as the lawyer for Dr Ford are in lockstep. They're demanding a super lengthy FBI investigation that of course about running the clock out. I'm sorry. That's what that's about. And that's been every step of the way the the game here. So there was one update overnight though, apparently Brett Cavs wife. There is a pool of reporters cameramen on their lawn. She went out and assaulted a bunch of tempted to kill some of them, even maybe. The woman came out with a tray of cupcakes. Some of them had nuts and most of them probably had gluten you're all going to die. Maybe. Yeah. But that qualifies like if I could spin that to an assault charge. Right. She didn't even make him. You know, we need a special counsel. No. She didn't even make him. She wanted. She bought him from some high dollar cupcake story. Yeah, she's a fraud. I don't think she claimed to make them. I think they actually she even told them where they were from because I think they I think she did that actually to reassure them because. Right. Made these for you this totally know ex lax in here. Enjoy. So I think that's what that was about. But yeah, that was the the big story there. A man arrested in northern Virginia grocery store after he was seen rubbing produce on his behind. He had pulled his pants down. And.

"Here's another thing that we were talking about that everybody's trying to kind of emulate what the Golden State Warriors do. And I feel like that's why that's why the league sucks. Listen, you know, listen, people take. I hate analytic in Dallas do because his true eight out leading this. With the game threes, elizabethtown Steph, clay and Kevin Durant. Those guys could be at a little. That's the only reason that we're now they totally taken a big off the game, which if I played against the warriors, I beat him up physically inside, but they don't wanna play. I make the plate big guy, but now you've got the other guys around the league era. Like, let's shoot threes. Let's you, unless you treat that. I'm like this illicit house clay clay, Stephan Kevin is not going to work, and that's the way it's working. Now if you've got those guys, these guys probably almost they probably should've want four championships in a row of dream on that after file and people. But listen, you can only shoot lease if you've got those two guys. If Prieta greatest offensive players have an even go back and look. They only met the play great, but they could one of those guys. Could make enough threes on a given night to make them pretty much on beatable, but I don't know understand why these other teams trying to immolate of guys because they don't have those three guys. And that's my point is I think somebody's going to be do account or attack, and I wanna I wanna get Golden State's attention where you have to play defense on my guys on our style. Instead of, you know, Golden State makes you play their game. You get sucked into it. You know, LeBron tried to build a Golden State in the east and you just, you didn't have the talent to be able to go head to head with them, but I get the feeling that somebody's going to go. All right. We're gonna play good perimeter defense, and we want you to guard our big down down below, and let's take our chances here. I've been saying that three or four years. I don't understand why you're trying to used to of a boxing match. You know, I'm not going to try to out there and try to I box flow at Mayweather 'cause he's the best defensive final when I'm just goes, hey, listen, let's beat the billing away and I'm gonna punch you and you hit it and I don't understand why they got a small little team. Yeah, they're terrific now, but I'm gonna get the ball. Give me a guy on the post. I'm gonna try to get dream mind or Kevin Durant and foul trouble, but I'm not. I'm not going to play Spall. I don't think you can beat them plants, small. I'm having this conversation with Kevin McHale. He's like, I don't understand why everybody wants to play small against the Golden State Warriors game, not going to beat them like that. But now you've got all these analytical idiots in around the whole run the NBA now and they're trying to act like having a bit guy is not as bad thing. I'm like, he gets. Lips and get you doubts. It can get the other team foul trouble, but all of a sudden one team, something that they got rid of greatest offensive player ever. And they're like, everybody's like, let's try that. Well, you can try, but you're not going to shoot at those guys so they're wasting their town. I not the Lakers were going to go after DeMarcus cousins. Like I thought that that you know they, you could take a chance on him like Golden State's doing and if you could, I don't know. It just felt like that if you're going to play something different than Golden State, then DeMarcus cousins is available at a good price and you can, you know, you're sort of having a test trial run here this next season with LeBron I don't know why they didn't reach out and try to get DeMarcus cousins. Not just a lot of hits in democracy..
