"In the fight against covert 19, and the date is familiar. It's July 4th of this year, but now he wants 70% of American adults who have gotten at least one shot by Independence Day. There is resistance, especially in rural America. CBS's David Begnaud continues our coverage. The Biden administration is also planning to work with more local doctors, who they believe will be key to breaking through that vaccine distrust in local communities. Dr. Stephen Lakey is the chief medical officer at a hospital in Fort Collins, Colorado, in the northern part of the state. There aren't any demographic that are gonna be suspicious or or have not heard the message from either you know, national sources or from national news, And I think having that impact of having our local leaders in those rural environments is gonna be critical. Back in Maryland vaccine administrator Cornell candidate says some people have been able to overcome their vaccine hesitancy. In a game

That won a couple of the players will be predominantly from a couple of different schools here in the area but again club teams Lot of the players will be playing for the huskies island. Huskies when it comes to the chance of sanctions season. A lot of them will be playing over in fort collins for the impalas So that'll be a fun on the stream is now available. If you wanna watch that game instead of just listen listening to it. You can check it out on thirteen ten. Kfi dot com. That will be the best way to get to it. And you'll be able to to see if you wanna watch the game clark. Johnson will be on the call. Tomorrow at six o'clock with the pre-game show six thirty on the tip off for that one So yesterday i've talked about it. I the the people who broke into the us capital Should all be in jail. And in fact i believe last check who was forty four Forty four people who have been arrested and Ford ed a bunch okay. Fifty two arrested now wanted to get us as of thirty eight minutes ago Fifty two or fifty two arrested four dead. Fbi seeking information on some of the. How moronic do they have to be first of all to do what they did. But then you get in there and just you start taking selby's on on the speaker of the house desks like you're carrying out podiums. Those are going to be used against you. So that's a bunch of morons the way that it is. I mentioned it. Our poll question are you okay. With how president. Trump responded to the situation yesterday so far. It's kind of been split. I tend to and say no no not really i'm not I feel that it should come out stronger and what he was saying. It shouldn't have been prerecorded thing. It was less of a less than presidential manner in which he addressed it his message when it came out i get where he was going with it. And don't blame him for that but Fell like there was a better course of action. That should have been taken and and and it's going to. It's going to impact him. It's going to impact his legacy. The thing that i'm i may have more issues with yesterday than how he addressed. The rioters is how he addressed vice president. Pence vice president pence has been by his side for the last four years and look president. Trump has a been hasn't received a fair shake from the media at all throughout his his tenure as president but vice president pence stood by aside. Then they did a lot of good in the last four years with the foreign trade with the economy in the states. They had what i would deem as a successful presidency lost the election but for president trump to go after vice president pence. I don't understand it then again. That tweet that went out there. Mike pence didn't have the courage to do what should have been done to protect our country and our constitution. Giving states chance to certify correct that set of facts not the fraudulent or incorrect or inaccurate ones which they were asked previously certify. Usa demands the truth. I'd never thought this day would come where i would be talking about this With with president trump is this is the man that i voted for twice. And i know that that's something you normally don't put out there but it is and i just disagree with what went down yesterday. And how he went about it especially with vice president pence so his message a little. I came around on that. I understood why he said what he said in that video. Wish it would have been live where she would ford but we are. We are fooling ourselves if we think that the only people that this falls on our is president trump and the republicans and this is not me pointing fingers back and forth but it's both parties and it's become the way that we talk to each other and the way that we converse and the way that we argue in the way that we debate. Because if you don't agree with me. I hate you and you are a communist agree with me all of a sudden you hate me and i'm a racist that's been dialogue and it's been an unhealthy one. When nancy pelosi tore up the state of the union address speech that did just as much damage. this is. You're you're just completely wrong if you believe that. This is just from one thing. This has been boiling. And it's hard to talk about. It's it's a sensitive topic but right now people out. There are justifying the actions of those riders yesterday because of what we saw over the summer with. The black lives matter. Riots and i get that it's it's completely. It's two separate things in terms of what they were. Rioting four i get that. So let's set that aside but when you look at just a riots and how it was condoned by the left when the black lives matter. Movement was writing when kenosha wisconsin was set on fire and set on fire because of what our court of law proved that the officer was acting in self defense. So wisconsin can get burnt down with little to no ramifications. Okay guess what. That's now the precedent. That's the president going forward. If you don't like something burn it down and they were leaders that that would not come out and say this has to stop. They would come out later on eventually and say okay. Yeah that that was not a good look but during that time they will not step out and say this is what's going on and so it was a. It's a bad look on everybody. It made our elected leaders. Look like they did not have any control the matter and in some ways they didn't. But where do we go from here. How does the dialogue change. How do we learn from this because already listening to Different members of congress speak. The left is already pointing the finger and say and this is this president. Trump's fault he should be thrown in jail that dialogue that rhetoric is not going to fix anything it's not as for the the the republicans and the conservatives. The election is over. There was not it. There would have been proof by now by any any one of these judges would have taken this case in gone with it if there is any any bit of.

Wildfires Jeopardize Access To Drinking Water

"In many Western states, drinking water supply start high up in the mountains as reverse. This summer's record-breaking wildfires have reduced some headwaters, forest burn trees and heaps of Ash as Luke Runyan from member. Station K. U.. NC reports that often creates expensive headaches for water treatment plants long after the smoke clears. Few places in the West know how wildfires affect water supplies like Fort Collins Colorado the state's largest wildfire ever recorded is burning just outside the city now but their problems really started eight years ago before then it's main water source the poodle river was nearly pristine. We had been privileged and in some ways probably took for granted that these watersheds were providing. A consistently clean clear water all the time. That's Fort Collins Water Quality Manager. Jill or pays we're along the river just outside the city downstream from where in twenty twelve, the high park fire burned more than eighty, seven, thousand acres for the first year after the fire every time it rained the river turned black from mudslides we ended up with a lot. Of Sediment in our pipelines that was difficult to remove to keep those muddy flows from causing problems, the city installed an early warning system, a series of monitoring stations along the river. If there's too much sediment or a pays says utility workers can turn off the treatment plants intake and switch to water from a large reservoir it became really important for us. To have a heads up for win those changes in water quality were occurring the effects of the burn scar on water quality only lasted a few years but this early warning system is far from obsolete because this year is cameron peak fire has burned another broad sweep of the river's watershed, which means for Collins, again joins the list of western cities learning. To live with wildfires that burn bigger and hotter than they've ever seen before this is a new reality and we're learning as we go. Joe. Harwood is with the water and electrical utility for two hundred, thousand people in and around Eugene Oregon this summer the holiday farm fire burned along the banks of their sole water source, the McKenzie River soon after their. Customers noticed the water coming out of their faucets had a smokey taste people quite frankly to use a scientific term freaked out because it's not something he'd dealt with me for Harwood's says, they eventually figured out the chemistry at their treatment plan to remove the taste and when this winter's rainstorms arrive, utility workers will be monitoring for other harmful things that can. Be transported in wildfire runoff like nitrates, heavy metals, and dissolved. Organic carbon were trying to learn the lessons of others, Colorado, and California to create our own best management practices.

I think we'll be doing that. With a lot of social media and messaging, and that sort of thing mayor way. Drunks Fort. Collins Mayor get you out of here on this one. This one is not a covid nineteen related question. But the glade reservoir is been something that has been a hot topic issue since weight well back in two, thousand and four. But I know there was a city hearing about this. Where does the GLADE reservoir a proposal stand? What's next and then do you see this happening? Well. Right it's before the Lamoure County Commissioner Planning. Commission before it goes to commissioners store a ten forty one, permitting process and I believe the paper today said that they they passed the at the Planning Commission, stage and and and that will then go forward to the commissioner's as it relates to Fort Collins. Collins is not a participant in the. The and the this project, but fort, Collins loveland water district, which serves about a third of citizens of Fort Collins with their water. Their participant in the project for is is really just provided a lot of data and understanding to the impacts related to flows and and the peak flows. HABITAT the natural Environmental impacts as well as The impacts to water treatment. Facilities where there will be some additional burden terms of cleaning the water, as it relates to Fort Collins water, and so forth, and and what Fort Collins has done is really a player at the table in in concert with northern water, which were a good partner, a long time partner with the the Water Colorado. Big Thompson Water Project and we really though If this is to be permitted and I believe it will be to be the best project that can meet and mitigate, and and also have some ongoing adaptive mitigating processes into the future where we can enjoy all the things including reliable stream flows, or we've just opened a poodle river whitewater park, which is a great amenity and our downtown, Fort Collins for Kayakers and people to being in one to join the river to allow for stream flows. That are very You know it where.

"Well clearly, I think at a local level. I think giving information that we've known and well known I. Think we've acted appropriate at the right times and earlier. but I think you know our numbers have stayed. Low again we're starting to creep back up and and but you know. I think you know. What are the lessons learned well I. I think it's painful for everyone. No one's exempt from that particularly on the economic side, and and the number of people have lost, loved ones and and That's That's tragic as well I. What we're trying to do is is you? You know put the practices in place for They were putting. You know we're also you know. Colorado State University, having one thousand students back in our community and putting in measures there that you know that there isn't a additional spread from people traveling, and so forth and and You know that's concerning, but I think for the most part four calls remember county. has done a good job in in in in managing something that is clearly not only a dynamic virus, but we are continuing to learn more about that There was one thing that was I learned yesterday. As an example of the facial coverings is is there was an example with to beauty salons that to individuals that. Tested positive and they treated, or they had customers about one hundred forty customers, and where facial coverings not one of the hundred and forty customers got the Got Tested positive. So it's one of those things that you hear that you know. Facial coverings don't stopped disease, but it's really a a number of things that help to stop the disease as it relates to the general public and add is a facial covering can help reduce the spread from one person to another. If you're that other person, you have less possibility of picking it up if you're wearing a mask, if physical distance that goes down even. Further down into the the ten percent range, and so forth, and and the stay at home, and and self isolate no sorts even guys down to zero, so it's those aspects that all play together to get to the point where you keep the the transmittal of the virus to a a level that one are hospitals aren't overrun, but to We don't have to den take. Take more drastic measures in the closure of of over businesses and stay at home again. Well, mayor, there seems as in most things in life that there's always extremes on both sides, but I think when when you try and find this common ground. Regardless of what everybody's opinions are you know? We're still learning on this? This virus like you mentioned whether as asymmetric carriers. The transmission rate is lower on that. In like you mentioned. It's just kind of all about trying to find that common ground that we can slow that transmission rate another thing that you touched on was the Colorado State University. It is a go as of now. How is Fort Collins prepping for students coming back into Fort Collins. Well I. You know I. Think our know with our businesses. are brewpubs and their restaurants, and and our businesses. You know basically heavy measures in place in fifty percent capacity. We've we've done a number of things with the city to allow for the public right of way to be opened up for dining outside and in the streets and onto sidewalks. That allows for the capacity to increase to allow for the physical distancing as a relief to the students Colorado State.

You get on that and basically a trace it and and you have people self quarantine to the point where? You stop that spread if we get into the exponential spread that's where that's what you're seeing. And some of the hot spots in Florida and Texas and other Arizona and That's concerning for Collins Mayor Wade trucks, joining us a one of the things in a in a recent article that was put out by the Colorado that Tom also spoke on as well was. Was the the variants that had been granted to Fort Collins because those numbers were low saying that that is prudent to be able if you if fort. Collins wants to keep that variants that was allowed. Numbers have to stay down. He put it at a medium to medium. High chance of these numbers growing. Are you concerned that that variance could be pulled mayor? Well I'm right with elaborate county health director, and and frankly if If we you know there's there's are not number that they look at it and if it's less than one, then the virus is not spreading if it's greater than one, and if it's starting to creep up in the twos and threes and and and that would basically be the indicator to help to so things down and not open things up, so again I think it's important that everyone take precautions to. To do what they can't protect their own health through the the hygiene, wash your hands and use facial coverings, and the physical distance and do that in order to keep keep the spread from of the virus and and I think that's you know that's important on everyone, and that's where you know. Facial coverings as some have said that's a personal freedom issue, and and you know so. Is having a stop sign and the? The speed limit but you know for the greater good that you need to also have some element that a for a safe streets, and in one case or say safe, public health, and another case where we basically slow and stop the spread of the virus through these actions, mayor way trucks will Fort Collins. Mayor joining us mayor. This is obviously been I wanted to say along couple of months, but it seems like certainly. Certainly turned into a long year. Already looking back at this now now that we see more information now than we I mean. There's a lot about this disease in that. We don't know but looking back on. Is there anything that you may said okay? We should have done this differently. You know kind of playing that for lack of a better term the Monday morning quarterback. What is what are your thoughts on? How Fort Collins has.

"Noko now. Thanks for joining us here on a Tuesday afternoon as we got through our news stories. Now it's time for our featured guest joining me now. Very honored to be having him is Fort Collins Mayor Wade trachsel mayor. Thanks for taking some time and wanting to shine some light on how your city has handled the cove in nineteen pandemic kanter glad to be on the show and Glad update you on what's going on in Fort Collins well You know like Like everyone else in the and you know we since about mid March or in a whole different world and with that Fort Collins is Basically You know gone through the the stay in place orders. And now they're safer in place and and And being a community of about one hundred seventy five thousand people and High-tech community with a lot of technology companies and and Colorado State University About THIRTY TWO THOUSAND STUDENTS. You know that has a lot different kind of Implications says it's a impacted four collins but you know in terms of there's two aspects to The Kobe nineteen pandemic is one is the health aspect and and I can report Lamoure. County and Fort. Collins has Done very well in terms of E- comparatively in terms of I don't know the exact numbers but you know. Four hundred and thirty five something like that with positive. Koga cases Over that time and then about nineteen deaths so each death that that's an unfortunate but I'm GonNa put you on Speaker because Harris on here so make sure so anyway So Anyway You know we're working through the health aspects and now We're actively Beginning to step down and You know basically You know social or physical distance inside like to consider it's an important part along with have facial coverings and Fort Collins so where you can't socially physically distance. And then you know all the good hygiene aspects but I really credit the people of Fort Collins Amer County for really keeping me. You know basically knocking the curve down and and That's where we are today with the health part of it well in mayor. You know Some would say the restrictions were a little more strenuous inland county. I don't think there's any doubt about that but it seems to be paying off now as Larimer County is now asking for for lighter. The lighter corona virus restrictions from the guy from the state government right so number county. Health Director Tom Gonzales has made a request for variances With respect to a number of different aspects and con consultation with our business community or chamber of Commerce and others in terms of considerations for variances with respect to Our businesses opening up. And I think that makes complete sense where There's a deliberate process to think about How do Safely engage in the opening up and and I was on a call earlier today with the with the health director and and You know I think for the most part We've been very much aligned with with the actions as well as You know the reasons why and and I think that illustrates I think the The numbers in county speaking with for Collins Mayor Wade trachsel and mayor as we look at this you mentioned some of those numbers substantially down from some of the other areas around northern Colorado around the state. However I don't envy your position I think That all of our elected officials are working through things that they would have never seen coming. How is that communication process? Ben and how is that working relation Working Relationship Ben with you talked about the county health director and the county commissioners. There's so many different plays. How has that worked in Lumber County? Well I think reasonably well I think at the that We're right in the middle of it so I think that You know we'll reflect upon When we get through this and and improvements that sort of thing but I think for the most part it's worked Reasonably well You know and it's you know being in only the second inning of the game. It's hard to talk about the game ends but I think it's It's worked reasonably well. We have our emergency operation center. That is one of the main coordinating factors in Lamoure County and that includes the city of Fort Collins our Ese point of contact as well as Lamoure County and and and other jurisdictions and and I think that's worked reasonably well and and addressing The initial You know two two and a half months of the Of the covert then Demi can and I. We continue to have weekly calls and you know. Now we're focusing on the recovery aspect and and how do we You know for again Fort Collins. I think How we open up our University and our community colleges and so forth such that Thirty two thousand students coming to campus in the fall that What we want to avoid And I think at a great cost would be Second wave and having to go back to the lockdown and so I think our best strategy is to is to go slow and steady with respect to the stepping down And Begin and having the testing and the Tracing and the isolation in place such that for the next year and a half or two years. That'll be a more of a new normal if we can Avoid the second way and You know Pandemics of the past have shown. That's a that's a tendency particularly Gets into the colder months. And so you know I think now it's I'm I'm really proud about our businesses. How many have pivoted? And how many continuing to provide for key Goods and services in our community and as we open up. They'll be Very creative and how. They're operating their business. Such that Are citizens of our community and guests can be a safe place and And Joy all that four collins has to offer during the summer months as we continue our conversation here with mayor. Wade trucks of Fort Collins in mayor. What you know communication now more than ever is so vitally important no matter in which direction it's flowing But especially from your office to your citizens. What what is your message to them. As is the analogy. You used was where the second inning of a nine inning ballgame. This is starting to wear on some people. What has been your message throughout this. But especially now's we started to progress. Well I think it's one of of empathy. This is hard on everyone. whether it's from a health perspective lives or with lively and and And something that We haven't seen in our lifetime for sure and I think there's a sense for empathy and understanding and caring about each other and reaching out those best we can. It may not be physically but You know in carrying about each other you know. I think the other thing is being honest and authentic about the situation that we have but also being Creative and and Innovative as we look to our future. And that's part of the ethos of Fort. Collins is being creative and innovative and thinking about solution so one. There's a a quite a number of projects going on with Colorado State University or one health institute and and The Center for Disease Control Another's on on backsied and and things That can not only help Fort Collins but hopefully Colorado the United States in the world. And that's the kind of spirit that we have here in. Fort Collins is people carrying about people and also we have very creative people and also very innovative people and and You know it's it's it's You know it's it's It's trying to respond appropriately or to the time and and as we enter the recovery that we do the thing that We avoid the hard downside but we also focused on the silver lining of of where we're going in the next us Three months six months nine months and a year so think. It's a combination of empathy Being the authentic and truthful with one another and particularly from us as leaders within our community and then one really looking to the future. And and how can we Make our community more resilient for the future. We'll MIRA and I'll open it up to let you brag on on CBS. You a little bit over there.

We've are safe or confident in in where we're going with things. What's the first thing that you're going to do when everything gets opened back up over there you know?

"No cohn our tanner. Swint thanks for joining us on this Tuesday afternoon. Ryan Kellyanne doing production. Work Blunt show lined up. We'll get to a couple of news stories here in just a second In just a second but we do have a fun interview with Mayor. Wade trucks the Fort Collins Mayor. Very excited to talk with him. There's big news coming out of Fort Collins too. So that's something that will dive into and then restaurants reopening. It seems to be the talk of not just the town. I think it's the talk of the nation right now and in. What way will they open will dive into that as well? Look back on what Governor Police is supposed to be putting out some guidelines here before too long. He said that yesterday that it would be sooner rather than later For these guidelines to be coming out but we have not seen anything yet. He he did say was either yesterday or today. Still nothing from the governor as soon as we see it but we're going to look back at what his initial thoughts were and dive deeper into that. And then of course we get a headline that caught my eye. But let's get into this. Let's start from this first story. via thirteen ten K of K DOT COM multi billion dollar shortfall forecast for the Colorado budget State lawmakers are maker picking the best of two bad options in their quest to cut billions. Yes billions with a b from the next Colorado budget. The legislature's Joint Budget Committee says Revenue Forecast. From the governor's office shows. The state will have a multibillion dollar shortfall over the next year drew the Corona Virus. Outbreak forecasters say. The situation is likely to be even worse in the twenty twenty two year So scary stuff right off the Bat. But we knew this was coming right and now it's time to continue that innovation. We've talked so much about how the ingenuity and how people have gotten creative through this crisis while our government's going to have to do the same thing that's just the fact of the matter. There's only so much for NANTEUIL aid out there for everybody. Multibillion DOLLAR SHORTFALL. So you're going to see some cuts coming some major cuts coming when you're talking about billions and billions of dollars so that coming from thirteen ten. Kfi DOT COM. Let's jump to the Loveland reporter Herald Lamoure County clerk encourages voting early by mail to eat. Cova nineteen strain. This is something that we heard disgust between president. Trump and governor Paula's Or last week rather when they were talking about well they had the in person meeting and and president trump brought up that he is not a fan of the mail in voting. Colorado's implemented it. Both parties have agreed on it. They enjoy it and now Lamoure County clerk and recorder Angela. Myers is asking area. Voters to register and vote in the June primary election as early as possible this year to offset the procedural challenges posed by Cova. Nineteen this for Max Max. Levy out of the Loveland reporter Herald besides rules on gathering sizes and mask wearing the Myers. Anticipates will be enforced at polling places. She said the number of election judges allowed to gather in one place. We'll be limited quote we're going. We're expecting that is going to slowest down dramatically. She said Meyer said. Her office is working with the county health department setting up barriers so individuals may safely work within six feet or one of another. That is something that's been lost in. All of this is that eight is still an election year. I think it's been lost for for. Most people is that it is an election year. Not just a presidential election year but even at the local at the local levels whether it's city county. Whatever the case is there seems to be a lot of those political ads starting to run around that I know we all love so much. The article continue continues. She's still she said. Voters are being encouraged about early and by mail whenever possible to avoid problems at polling places. Election Day is June thirtieth and bounce will be mailed the week of June eighth voter registration may be created or updated online..

Stimulus checks being sent to dead people, leaving loved ones confused

"In under a month the IRS delivered more than a hundred and thirty million corona virus relief payments to Americans that's two hundred and seven billion dollars that was part of the relief package passed by Congress during the public health crisis but the speed has come with some significant mistakes NPR's Tim mak has been talking to the families of dead Americans who got coronavirus relief checks Bob lemon dues father passed away in December so Bob who lives in Houston notified the V. A. and the Social Security Administration that his father had passed in order to stop payments from them and those were halted but on April fifteenth Bob who is a co signer on his dad's account noticed a payment in the amount of twelve hundred dollars he was a corona virus relief payment from the IRS I feel bad that this money is sitting in my dad's account I don't know what to do with it and there are people out there that need it badly and that bothers me quite a bit I wish I knew what to do with it but I don't treasury secretary Steve Mnuchin said one week ago that any payments to the deceased would be a mistake and should be returned but this is raised more questions than answers this mass confusion that's Jenna holds what of the urban Brookings tax policy center there's been no official guidance as to how in this instance people should return the money that was received for their loved ones the Irish does not typically track information on the deceased in America but other parts of the government such as the social security administration do it appears that there was no cross referencing before checks went out the scope of the problem could be in the millions the CDC estimates that two point eight million Americans died in twenty eighteen for example and there are signs that people who have died more than two years ago are receiving payments Karen McClure of fort Collins Colorado experienced this first hand her mother passed away in January of twenty eighteen but in April of this year she received a payment of twelve hundred dollars the government is being very reactive instead of proactive to this situation which I I find frustrating mark Iverson is the former IRS commissioner serving from two thousand and three to two thousand and seven he told NPR that the IRS has generally been doing a good job but there's a real trade offs of speed versus accuracy in the processing he says the people in this situation should rely on official guidance people need to rely on the information they get from IRS dot gov but that's not so easy when it comes to this topic three so will not the seventy one year old in Rockford Illinois has been trying to do just that she lost her partner of thirty nine years Frank dica just two months ago last month he received the payment I'm coping with Frank stuff pretty well at this point I'm not over it I probably will never be over it but it didn't that part didn't bother me I'm I'm probably angrier at the government for sending out a payment to somebody who's deceased three says been trying without success to find guidance online from the IRS to send the money back so I went online to the address on the letter and looked for a long time trying to find some way that I could first send the payment back and I couldn't find that so look for a way to contact somebody at the IRS or treasury or whatever to return the payment and I couldn't find that NPR did not fare much better than Theresa after multiple requests the IRS directed questions to the treasury department the treasury department pledged to have an answer by Tuesday morning as of the sharing the treasury department has not answered questions about what steps the IRS is taking to address this problem or what to do if a deceased loved one

Study: Fossil fuels will be necessary in cold winters

"Anew big picture. I tell us what this study in applied energy measured. This is a study that looked at heating transitions from fuels lake fossil fuels, like natural gas and propane to 'electricity with the hope that when they electrically becomes a renewable electricity makes we would decarbonised our heating, and we were able to through the sustainable, healthy cities, network rain together researchers from Columbia University, which, which led the study, my own group from the university of Minnesota, our colleagues from Colorado state university, who provided data about Fort Collins and Florida State University that had. Dade on Tallahassee. So it was a fascinating comparison of full, very different cities to see what, how can we decarbonised heating and cooling? And I looked at some of the numbers in the study, they're quite interesting. What did you find about the optimal energy mix for states like Minnesota to be both climate-friendly and reliable. So this is very interesting. So the study compared moving from heating as I said, which is now by combustion, so we bun, natural gas furnaces, and the hot air is, basically transmitted throughout the house, and that's the predominant way we he doubled ings. And this would switch to a heat bump, which basically takes air from outside and increases temperature and circulates and this. Electrically driven heat pump. We looked at two technologies one as an air source heat, bump rich draws air. The other is. Ground source heat, bump, which taps into your ground temperature with stays about fifty five to sixty degrees Fahrenheit and can be used both for heating in winter and for cooling in summer, and then we said, if we were to move to electrically driven heating and cooling. And if that electricity could be obtained from around us regionally through solar and wind, what is the, the variability of solar, and win that matches the patterns of demand. So it's really how do you match the supply with demand what we found was in our region. The patterns don't match the optimum availability of solar, and wind, just because I mean, even in day to day, you know, we need heat when it's late at night on us and shining. And if you also look at the monthly availability of boat wind and soda, it wasn't as good a match as it was in the other cities. So this is just how the city's demand and the supply of wind and solar. Around, you are weather and climate system works up here. Yeah. So what we found was even the best case you could get about seventy percent penetration of this mix of wind and solar, which for us is more towards wind and less solar. So the numbers were interesting when you combine this twelve hour storage, which will get to in a minute renewable, energy, penetration could reach eighty percent of New York City, seventy percent in Minneapolis, eighty three percent in Tallahassee and sixty nine percent in Fort Collins. So could we say that for your purposes here that means that seventy percent of power through, renewables is a practical, upper limit in Minnesota? So that's what this study is finding if we were to look at just the heating, so heating and cooling. And we also looked at round source heat bumps with thirty six hours of storage for heating and you could go up a little bit to seventy four. Percents. And the study basically says that has a slightly extra higher cost, but ground source heat pump might give you other aspects of reliability. So there's a, you know, we lay out that argument is that technology here today. Yes. Grandmas. Hit bump is here, and there are rebates offered four grandsons. He here's a quote from the study, it says the study found that the use of fossil fuels would still be needed to meet peak demand in cold climates, like Minneapolis and Fort Collins, this is because renewable energy cannot be produced at the rate needed to meet demand during the coldest month. So in that scenario is the rest of that likely natural gas and nuclear power so that these great questions. So it could be natural gas. We could also be thinking cities like Saint Paul and Minneapolis, which already have district energy systems. This could be a wonderful way of thinking about growth in our region. And how to have that growth, be more. Impact so that you can have shed heating and those district energy systems can be flex fuel as you already know. And so they could use biomass, I think waste to energy options would be fantastic, because they

"It was that low July twenty eighth there's more than coincidence here Larry the microscopic numbers are verifying and justifying the, macro level numbers of saying it's centered around the school year all that saying is sellers. If you had some anxious? Weeks because you. Were misled by your own thoughts you were, misled by agents giving? Misinformation. As some of our guests and others have shared, with us in the last week and if you're getting that misinformation be. Prepared it, will take. You an extra week to a month. To sell your home if you're above the median price up and down. The front range so I is that a good enough. Summary, I. Don't think so I think well Barry I I, want to repeat that this is not a trend that says oh my gosh. The world is coming to an end put your money into Wall. Street that's who started that false look are, we seeing a slowdown. Let let's, be, honest Yes we are we see it every. Year, this. Is a. Little stronger this year. I don't even know. If it is but even if. It is, the, real the. Reality is the economy is very strong and vibrant in the front range and there's nothing that. Says it's gonna change relax relax it's there it happens every year. It happens every year no. Longer at Labor Day weekend that's six seven eight year old news never to return for the next twenty until schools don't open until after Labor Day those days are gone schools now open, early August and mid August that's the. Way it is and that's the. Way it's going to be for quite, a while and, until the school year changes don't expect, this Malays to happen and wait. Until Labor Day is now happening. In July and that's how, it's been the last Three. Plus years right here in the front, range we have data to prove it, we were stunned about four and three July's ago we saw the slowdown in, and it caught a lot of us off. Guard, and. Then we. Put our minds together. Connected dots it's centered. Around the school year but let's. Take a, look, at some. Fun numbers Larry let's let's deal with median price we'll come back and talk about rentals later. In the show and let's talk about median price up and down. The front range let's pick. Six cities Colorado Springs I'll do it geographically from the south to the north Colorado Springs Denver Aurora boulder Longmont and Fort Collins okay with those cities Larry they're pretty Representative they sure are, which city by far has the highest Median. Price should be an easy one. Yeah that's boulder hats boulder only about four hundred. Thousand higher than Denver's median price Denver is number two in the highness of the median price for a detached home boulder is. At eight hundred and sixty five, thousand Denver is at four hundred and sixty five. Thousand, now Larry what are the two. Lowest and maybe some people would call them best I don't, I don't put judgments on these are just numbers what are the. Two lowest some people, call it. The best opportunities medium priced cities up and down the front range, in, those, six, Colorado Springs and I. Guess. Aurora absolutely and, by, a fair amount. Colorado Springs is three hundred and ten Aurora is three Seventy there's some, great opportunities in Aurora is no longer. That old little old area? Over by colefax that's the end? Shoes hospital medical district, some people think that's Aurora it, is a roar but auroras a lot more going south and. Going, east well yeah. It's approaching Kansas I think it's approaching Kansas and someday Larry. It's going to overtake Colorado Springs in size but that's not a competition that you. And I are in we don't we. Don't have a dog that you're wrong but you're just in. The waning, me with that just picking on you they're the number two and number. Three cities. And what does it matter they're both growing they're. Both nice they both have? Lots of opportunities but so does Denver, sodas boulder it's all relative to you the individual what do you want done. What do you want. For. You and by the way, it's also Longmont for college there booming that they have Strong housing markets let's. Talk about them, Longmont median price four fifty Fort Collins four, twenty-five rather close rather close what's interesting about that is that. Longmont has. A higher average because they're building some higher, areas and they're close the boulder so I have. Some of that higher. End was interesting about Aurora is a Roth. IRAs average of these six? Cities and I. Wasn't gonna go. There but I am today Aurora, of the six cities is by, far the closest their average price is. The closest to the median? Price Larry you're economists what does? That mean for our, listeners what does that mean for, home buyers in Aurora What it means what that? The median average is so close to? The median What. It means is that you have a. Well-balanced. Housing market yeah but centered, Yup less of a spread and more centered look Aurora has million dollar homes, but it has fewer million dollar. Homes per capita or per all the homes then some of the other cities and it's and it continues to go. Up and up and up as fast as anywhere else in the, metro area but lots of opportunities, and I'm gonna make a prediction and Barry you may strongly. Disagree with this, but I would suggest we keep her eyes on. Poa, blow I'm not sure. But that city may actually start. Showing, some. Energy Larry let me ask you this question? Is. Colorado Springs growing, oh yes is Colorado Springs going to continue to grow absolutely if Colorado, Springs not if, but since Colorado Springs has a median price of three ten What's pueblos median price. Well I'm going to guess it's probably two fifty or I'm gonna guess that. Might, be to. Twenty. Two to fifty I get lots of. Requests. For that we're going to, do a study it's gonna take us a couple of weeks we'll do it. Properly and we'll find out but Larry I do agree with you not disagree I think Pueblo has the brightest future it's had since the steel mill. Opened I'll look it was a bright future when it opened in, good for decades and decades multiple, many decades and then it had the LOL in the downturn. Okay it had, both the downturn with the mill closing and then. Reopening, and then closing and. Then trying to figure out what. It, wants. To be well now now the growth of? The. Front range in, Colorado Springs is absolutely a key economic factor to Pueblo they're actually less Parochial about their growth then Colorado? Springs, is about it Colorado Springs has to accept that they're becoming a big city they're not a suburb of Denver. They never will be but they have. To realize they're no longer that. Rural Colorado Springs military town there are growing. Growing city pueblos going to be a benefactor. Of that, I agree completely with that. Bear all. Right absolutely you started it I agree I'm glad we agree on that it's. Good news. You want good investments Pueblo has them Colorado Springs has them Denver has them, Aurora has them, Longman has them Loveland has them Fort Collins has. Them. And boulder has them also why we have such a good economy all right Larry, let's take a break come back with Jerry's world and let's see if there's any trustees out.
