Seattle crime rose 4% last year, both violent and property crimes increased compared to the year before, police chief Adrian Diaz told the city council they have started to see a downward trend in violent crime due to focus patrols and troubled areas. Council member Sarah Nelson says those property crime statistics don't reflect what she hears from small business owners. I mean no disrespect, but the 4% increase in property crime is not an accurate reflection of what's really going on out there. I know that you realize this too, chief Diaz. And unfortunately, we only have anecdotal information about what is really happening to small businesses, crime against small businesses is going in the wrong direction. Many property crimes go unreported and Diaz says he's working on system improvements to encourage reporting.

"Do you live? I live in Santa Rosa beach. Okay, well, be careful. You got a bad storm coming up there. Yes, I know. I have a question about Alabama. Okay. Why is Alabama in second instead of first? AJ, first of all, you constructed that question very well. Good question. And the answer is this, that we were all very disappointed with the way Alabama played against Texas, nearly losing the game. So we demoted them. And I'd acquired Georgia the greatest team of the millennium. So then they laid an egg in victory. So we're not really sure. I think it could change again as the season plays out. Alabama has some really big games coming up. This week against our the next week against a and M and the following week against Tennessee, meanwhile, Georgia has a really bad stretch of games coming up, Missouri, auburn, Vanderbilt. So I think it's entirely possible Alabama looks great and Georgia is sloppy. You can see that go back and forth. Thank you for your time. Thank you, AJ, and you'd be well. AJ was were you that polite and sapient at 9? No. I'm still not that polite and sapient. Let's continue. Mike is in Fort Smith Arkansas. Let me know. Mike is in Fort Smith Arkansas.

"In a very, very difficult workforce. I know that you guys are going to get a ton of value from this. And let me know what you think. Okay guys, we'll talk to you very soon, enjoy. And this particular panel, doctor Steve dove, doctor Allen guitar. Doctor summer cas Mel, doctor Beau sparkman, doctor Christopher Greene, what's up? What's up, guys? Oh, thank you for those. Thank you for that. Appreciate that. And the title of this panel is. Okay, there you go. All right, what are we talking about? Navigating the workforce crisis. So, oh jeez. You don't have to look far to find somebody that is having a really, really difficult time locating good talent, even it's even hard to find bad talent. Nowadays. There is no talent. There are no humans that are willing to work. It feels like. So yeah, if you guys are wondering if this is just you or just your community, just your particular location, that something's wrong with you because you can't hire people at this juncture. I will tell you as somebody that sees practices all across the country that this is a universal issue. There seems to be a significant decrease in the workforce, like I said, there isn't just there's just not a whole lot of talent. So I wanted to talk to you guys specifically about some of your strategies. That you have found effective to navigate this problem. And I guess we'll start by talking about whether or not your full staff and where you are. So I'll start with doctor borkman. How are you doing, Bo? Doing great. Thanks, Mark. Right now, no, we're not fully staffed, but we're in the process of looking for more people because we are kind of in growth mode. But things that have worked for us are things that I'm actually wanting to implement as well. I think I've talked to a few of you guys out there about this. Right now, what we're seeing is just people are looking for a different place to work. They're looking for an environment. I think that they can fit into. And so with just the whole just uncertainty that COVID brought, I think, kind of opened a lot of people's eyes like that maybe they weren't happy with where they're at. And did a great job kind of identifying she's no longer looking for unicorns. I'm looking for Sphinx. She's kind of identified that person she's looking for. So kind of what we're looking for is we're looking for, who is it that we want in that position? We're looking for a specific avatar. And in our area, it's more of a rural area. And so we need to kind of cast a broader net, be a little bit less specific, but at times we want to be able to specify certain key things that we want in that person. And so we want to focus on culture. And then make sure that they're the right culture fit, and then we want to be able to advertise for them. So what I want to know is, who is it? What demographic is this person in? Is it somebody young? And where do they hang out? Where do they hang out on social media? Is it TikTok as a Facebook Instagram? And so then I want to be able to create ads, so I'm going to almost making marketing campaigns for this person. And then so what we want to do is we want to be able to show in these ads. We're looking for an ideally I want to show a video and I want to show them what our culture looks like. So this is like what we want to bring on. This is the type of personality we're looking for, but this is also kind of our culture. And then at the same time, our message that I want to be able to share is also, I don't want to really stoke how good we are and how great we are. I think I want to be able to share in the ad. This is what you can do, and this is where we're going. If you want to attach your horse to our wagon, this is the direction we're going. And this is what your life can look like as you actually join our team. And so I want to be able to stoke that aspirational identity of like, what is it that they want in their next career? And then be able to kind of help them to see this is how they can fit in with where we're at. And so those two things are kind of what we're looking at is like culture fit and then also making sure that they understand and they can see what it is that they can actually create within their life. So are you willing to hire people just based on culture fit and not clinical experience or any experience? Oh yeah. Yeah, I'm fine with that. I want more of a culture fit rather than like a rockstar, but sometimes they're just, they just don't have the same values that we do. I want to make sure that they're going to fit in with our team. And we will never hire as well. Whatever position that is, that department has a very, very strong saying who joins them. And so I want the buy in from them so that way they're actually they have an ownership mentality and bringing that person on investing time in them to get them on board it as well. Nice. Nice. So what does your onboarding process look like if you hire a Newbie that is completely new to dentistry? Yeah, I mean, we have a 30, 60, 90 day process, and so we're kind of getting the man, bringing them in, showing them the process, what we do, I want them to really, I want them to be able to follow somebody first for the first two or three weeks, or so I first week or two. I want them to follow that person, and then that person is kind of explaining what they're doing, why they're doing it. And then they'll sit in that chair, and they'll be able to have direct supervision from that from the person they were just following. And then we kind of start to take the reins off a little bit and let them kind of go out. I'm okay with a little bit of failure because I feel like sometimes people will learn sometimes through those struggles. But I want to be able to coach them, give them the resources to be able to have success. And I think that comes with just continuing communication and just constant communication as well. And very nice. So how many how big is your team? Tell us about your organization. Yeah, so I have two offices. We have one in Fort Smith. Arkansas, and then I have one enroll in Oklahoma, and I kind of explain explain this. If you look at a map, you see the state line of Oklahoma and Arkansas, and you see I 40 running. It's like that crosshair that I 40 in the state line makes is kind of where we're at. And so Fort Smith is a little bigger city, but we have an office on the south side. So we have an associate there. Doctor brogan Lopez easier and he's amazing. And I have a great team there and I've got a great team in Roland..

"That people are fighting about? So race is a big one. And the summer of 2020 with all the conversations about racial justice that that opened up in the country more broadly really trickled down to evangelical churches as well. There were a lot of white pastors who really wanted to have conversations that summer who wanted to use the protests as a reason to talk with their congregations, push their congregations, have panel discussions, have more black voices at their church. Have these conversations and a lot of congregations were really not ready for that and not interested in it. The pandemic has really complicated all this as well. So initially, just the fact of not being able to meet either for a short or a long time, that separates people, people are only encountering each other on social media. They're not gathering. They're not sort of coming together and seeing each other face to face. So things got, you know, that led to a lot of ugliness. And then, of course, the politicization of issues like vaccines, church closures themselves, masking, all of that became so fraught and for pastors trying to hold a congregation together, I heard from so many people over the last few years that just felt whatever they did in that arena was going to make half of the church upset or at least a significant portion. And as Kevin told me, he learned in seminary, it only takes 7 people in a church to get you fired. So with this much sort of discontent roiling over racial issues, cultural issues, and then the pandemic laid on top of that, it's really an uncomfortable time to be an evangelical pastor. The 7 people who could fire you were being whom the elders of the congregation? No, really, so because leadership structures are different. So not elders, but just 7 really unhappy, noisy people, you know, who are talking about you with their friends and kind of ginning up discontent. I guess in a kind of loose way, that's the number of people that can sort of start the discontent that would lead to your ouster. You know, pastor Kevin Thompson and Fort Smith Arkansas was troubled by people thinking that Tom Hanks was somehow involved in child trafficking, which raises the question of the reliability of the information that people are counting on. And you're right that pastor Thompson wrote in his blog that Christians should apply research and discernment and that promoting things that are not true about others, violates the 9 commandment. That's the one against about bearing fault witness, right? What was he getting at? He was really disturbed by what he came to see as a crisis of authority within the evangelical church more broadly. So you have people watching other pastors, other kind of media figures online, getting their own views affirmed, encountering conspiracy theories that way. It just becomes, it's much easier to just find a spiritual voice who matches your political worldview online than to sit around while you're pastor makes you feel uncomfortable in your seat at church. So a line that I hear from a lot of pastors is I get them for one hour a week and fox or OAN or anyone else gets them for, you know, it could be 20 hours a week. So it's just really hard to compete with the voices that conservative American evangelicals are encountering online and on cable news. So there are tensions there are disagreements. And what does it mean for the membership of congregations like community Bible church, which is the one that Kevin Thompson in Arkansas headed? It's been really difficult. So the people that I spoke with at community Bible were really frustrated and saddened by what they saw as sort of the collapse of the church that they had known, where they felt very comfortably apolitical there. Supposedly sort of anyone could come. Anyone could be comfortable and we didn't have to hear about quote unquote politics. In church. As Kevin points out, he would occasionally speak about abortion from the pulpit and no one thought of that as politics. No one saw that as political. But then when he would talk about racial justice and issues related to that, suddenly that was political. So there is this kind of interesting in group shifting definition of what it means to be political in church. But for church members, they felt 5 years ago we were comfortable here. All of a sudden now our pastor is telling us that we're implicated in systemic racism. And we're not comfortable with that. So was he losing members? Yes, absolutely. And this is not just at community Bible. So across the country still, even as almost every church is meeting in person again now, but attendance is still really dramatically down. So it remains to be seen what that will look like in another few months or in a year. But there is a real sort of attendance crisis in the American church right now overall. So that's churches everywhere, not just evangelical churches, not just for absolutely. So Kevin Thompson had spent most of his career, I think, at community Bible. Did he stay? He did not stay, so last fall, he left Fort Smith where I should say he grew up. So he was born and raised in Fort Smith. He left for seminary, came back, expected he would live there for the rest of his life. But it just became untenable. He and his wife talked about, you know, the way they talked about it was we can stay here and have all these sort of happy memories sour and have things potentially really go south here, or we can leave, you know, sort of cut our losses and keep those happy memories. So they left, he's an associate pastor out at a bigger church out in Sacramento, California. And I think that was a really a bittersweet. The right decision as he talks about it, but also really bittersweet, leaving family and friends, and just an expectation that he'd been better would be embedded in that community for the rest of his life. Let's look at the other side of this. Our congregations whose leaders openly and avidly embrace Donald Trump's politics are those congregations growing. Yes, there are a lot of individual churches like this where pastors are really speaking openly about political issues that are booming. One way you can see that is churches that responded really defiantly to pandemic. Early pandemic precautions and lockdown orders and churches that defied that and opened early in some cases courting lawsuits and other cases suing themselves. Those churches are really thriving. People really responded to that. And people wanted to meet in person. I mean, I think that was true of almost any regular churchgoer. But there was sort of the defiance there, specifically that people that people really did respond to. This is a big question, but I'm wondering, I mean, certainly people besides evangelicals are attracted to Donald Trump and to his political views, but it does seem from these stories that white evangelicals are embracing them in a really passionate way. Do you think that there's something about the experience of being an evangelical that makes one more predisposed to.

"And that's resonating with his congregation and people in his community. You know, it's interesting. Whenever a message is popular, it presents opportunities for people in media or social media. People who want to get attention and make money, which, you know, not to question the sincerity of people in their religious beliefs, but have you seen people suddenly appear and form new churches with an aggressive embrace of these beliefs and succeed? Yes, there's new churches. There's also people who have almost sort of changed the branding of their existing churches, so there's a pastor in Tennessee named Greg Locke, who has just his social media profile, has exploded. He was there at the January 6 protests. He has become a major national figure based on initially his resistance to pandemic precautions and vaccine mandates. And he also has church has really, really grown. So it's exploding in popularity, and that's just one example. So there's a lot of people in this kind of media space who the sizes of their churches varies a lot. Some of them are actually surprisingly small, but they've built these media platforms where they reach a lot of people, including people in a town that doesn't have a church exactly like that yet. So a town like Fort Smith. And they just have huge reach at this point, calling for bold churches, churches waking up. A lot of us sort of revival language that you'll hear. Has any of this activity and the success of congregations which embrace very politically conservative ideas? Has any of that changed seminaries and training for ministers or the extent to which people coming from seminaries are able to pursue their profession? So in a lot of these settings, seminary training is optional. So Kevin had it, but it wasn't required by his denomination or by his church. Seminaries are shrinking..

"Who wants to hear more hardline conservatism from the pulpit knows to go to this one place. But there's a lot of competition and there are churches that sort of preach more in that vein. And seem to be really benefiting from it. So people do want to hear, you know, I listened to some sermons from the church across the street from community Bible and they're talking about standing firm against a culture secular culture that wants to tell you how to raise your children. And just sort of confronting political issues much more directly and calling congregants to arms metaphorically in the culture war in a way that a church like community Bible does not. And that's the kind of church that is really resonating with a lot of people right now. And those churches seem to be really benefiting from this moment. So Kevin Thompson had spent most of his career, I think, at community Bible. Did he stay? He did not stay, so last fall, he left Fort Smith where I should say he grew up.

We spoke a moment ago about a pastor in Arkansas, who ultimately left a congregation that he led for many years because more politically conservative parishioners objected to his kind of leadership.

"Our guest New York Times correspondent Ruth Graham says the episode is far from an isolated case. She writes that the issues dividing the Republican Party today are creating tensions within white evangelical churches across the country. Pastors who won't embrace Donald Trump's views are facing criticism, losing parishioners, and in some cases leaving the ministry. Ruth Graham is a Dallas based national correspondent covering religion, faith and values for The New York Times. She graduated from Wheaton college and previously worked as a writer and reporter at slate. Ruth Graham welcome to fresh air. Thank you so much. You write about a pastor in Fort Smith Arkansas, Kevin Thompson, who delivered a sermon in the fall of 2020, which would have been right in the middle of the Trump Biden presidential race. What did he say in this sermon? This is a pretty standard sermon that you'd hear in an evangelical church. It was about the gentleness of God. But he made one reference in the sermon that stood out to a couple of people in his congregation. So he was drawing this contrast between God as a loving and accessible figure. And just sort of comparing them to earthly celebrities as remote and inaccessible characters. And he just made a quick reference to, I think, Oprah, Jay-Z, and then Tom Hanks. Just to sort of draw this contrast in an understandable way. And several congregants afterwards asked him by text message and phone call. What did he mean by that reference to Tom Hanks? And one of them raised the possibility, sort of suggested that he obviously didn't care about the issue of sex trafficking. He was completely confused by this at first, but sort of pieced together that they were being influenced by QAnon, a piece of the QAnon conspiracy theory is that Tom Hanks is part of this ring of Hollywood pedophiles. So it was kind of a wake-up call for him, one of a couple of wake-up calls that his congregation was really being influenced and listening to voices that he was having a hard time figuring out how to reach and how to respond to. Kevin Thompson had been at his church, the community Bible church for a long time. And this little episode is reflective of a rift..

Years ago, while traveling in Argentina, I heard a great phrase to describe somebody who's very stingy, you know, that guy who never picks up the check in a restaurant never gives money to charitable causes. In Argentina, that kind of person is said to have a crocodile in the pocket. A crocodile in the pocket. That means he's not about to reach for his wallet because there's this scary sharp tooth animal there in his pocket that'll snap his hand off. And I thought that was a really cool, colorful phrase. And I was reminded of this, the other day, because I just learned that in France, a stingy person doesn't have a crocodile in his pocket, instead he has ursan. He has sea urchins in his pockets. And you're not going to want to reach in there 'cause ow. And so I started digging around and it turns out that in various countries, there are various dangerous animals in the pockets of stingy people in Brazil sometimes you would say that there was a scorpion in somebody's pocket or in Serbia, it's a snake. All preventing you from getting in there and take out your money. Yeah, yeah, don't blame me. My father who passed on a couple of years ago was very, very careful with money. Let's say.

Paul, you filed a limited, but you know, when you first, well, you do, but so you used to have the guys on air. You had John Hayes on there. He used to be on the show with you on TV on camera. Oh, yeah. And Charles told him these are called John stud muffins. For some reason, he got that title. And Charles got in there one day. He was so mad. He said, you ain't no stud muffin. You're a muffin. And I'll never. I will never forget that man. Yeah, he did it, man. You can dig it up. John probably remembers it.

Because have you ever had anybody call your show asking to meet one of your college? Not in any recent memory, no. That's what I'm saying. Now, look, in this, just feeling my lap, man.

So that's my top 5. Listen, Jim, you know, I can't put him in there because he's too angry. He's always wanting to start a beef with somebody and he just doesn't use any. He never talks sports.

"A time with his bare hands. He was as quick on the draw as he was deadly accurate with his Winchester rifle, capable of taking down a running target at a quarter mile. That's 400 meters. He wore a thick handlebar mustache and spit shined boots. Unless he was in one of his clever disguises. In the storied American West of the late 1800s, where lawmen pursued outlaws for high priced bounties. None deserved their fame as much as bass Reeves. Born into slavery in 1838, Reeves escaped to what was then called Indian territory during the Civil War, and emerged as a skilled marksman and tracker, who could speak multiple Native American languages. Reeves was hired as a deputy U.S. marshal, one of several black or Native American lawmen to patrol, the hard Scrabble territory on behalf of the federal government. It was a notoriously hazardous profession. At least a 114 deputy U.S. Marshals were killed on duty in the territory before it became state of Oklahoma in 1907. But Reeves was no ordinary officer of the law. Over his three decade career, Reeves arrested more than 3000 individuals, survived countless skirmishes with armed outlaws, and only killed 14 men while defending his life and others. For the article this episode is based on, how stuff works spoke with art T Burton, former history professor and author of the book, black gun silver star. The life and legend of frontier marshal bass Reeves. He said, bass Reeves was the greatest frontier hero in American history. He walked into the valley of death every day for 32 years. He helped people regardless of their race, their religion, or their background, his entire life. Not much is known about Reeves early life. Other than that he was born in Arkansas into an enslaved family owned by Arkansas state legislator William Reeves, and then his son, George Reeves. And the family was moved to Texas, where George organized and led a cavalry regiment for the confederacy. Bass served alongside George and the Civil War as his servant, and the two men formed a close bond. But that bond was broken when they got to arguing over a card game, and bass punched the kernel out cold. Burton explained for a slave to hit his master in Texas was punishable by death. So bass didn't wait around to see what the consequences might be. Reeves spent the next few years living among the creek Cherokee and seminal peoples, learning their languages, studying their hunting and tracking techniques and, according to some accounts, fighting for the union in guerrilla regiments. After the war and Emancipation, Reeves returned to Arkansas a free man, got married and started working as a scout for federal lawmen. In 1875, a new judge took over the Fort Smith federal courthouse in Arkansas, and called for the hiring of 200 more deputy U.S. Marshals to chase down lawbreakers who escaped into the unincorporated territory. Reeves was one of them. He had arresting authority over fellow Friedman and women, Native Americans, and white people, a rare for a black man at the time. He even arrested some white men for lynchings. A crimes committed by Native Americans against other Native Americans were handled in separate courts. But Reeves and his fellow deputy U.S. Marshals handled all other crimes committed in the territory. From theft to arson to murder to the illegal trade of whisky. Like many other formerly enslaved people, Reeves had never been taught to read or write. But he developed the uncanny ability to memorize a pile of arrest warrants. The system worked. While other deputies would return to Fort Smith with three or four captured fugitives at a time, Reeves routinely delivered a dozen or more wanted men. The tales of bass Reeves bravery and cunning are legendary and legion. There was the time when Reeves was in pursuit of a band of outlaw brothers, a laying low at their mother's house in chickasaw territory. A Reeves had a whole posse with him, but he knew they would be spotted miles away. So, Reeves disguised himself as a beggar with holes in his shoes, a big floppy hat and a cane. He walked some 30 miles or 45 kilometers across the parched plains, and arrived on the mother's porch, asking for some food and water. She took him in. When her sons came home, the mother introduced Reeves like an old friend, and the group started scheming up a crime they could all pull off together. The outlaw brothers awoke the next day, handcuffed to their beds, and Reeves marched them all the way back to his camp on foot. Burton said, mama was hot. I think she followed bass for about ten miles cursing at him. Then there was the time that bass was ambushed by the three bruter brothers, each wanted for multiple counts of horse theft, robbery, and unsolved murders. The brothers told Reeves to drop his weapons, but he played it cool and calmly asked the men for the day's date. When asked why, Reeves said so he could mark it down on their arrest warrants when he brought them to court. The Brent her brothers almost fell over laughing, and Reeves seized the opportunity and outgunned them in that moment, despite the odds. And there was the time that Reeves was called in by his fellow deputy U.S. Marshals to help smoke out a stubborn fugitive. After an hour's long shootout, the outlaw made a run for it. At a quarter of a mile away, Reeves was the one who brought him down. In Burton's book, he makes the bold yet believable claim the bass Reeves was the real-life inspiration for the lone ranger. A masked hero first created for radio in the 1930s before becoming a movie and TV character. Burton said bass is the closest thing to the lone ranger to exist in reality. The lone ranger handed out silver bullets. Bass handed out silver dollars. Bass worked with the sidekick and rode a white horse, bass worked in disguise throughout his career. The lone rangers last name is Reed, which is very close to Reeves. Also, like the lone ranger, Reeves was known for his strong moral compass and dedication to justice. A win Reeves own son was wanted for the murder of his wife. He solemnly requested the warrant and brought his boy in for trial. Reeves also wound up arresting the preacher who had baptized him. In need of money, the congregation had convinced the preacher to run bootleg whisky, but Reeves wouldn't have it. Burton believes that the city of Detroit might provide the connection between Reeves and the lone ranger. The original radio program was created at a Detroit radio station in 1933, and most of the outlaws that Reeves arrested in the 1880s and 1890s were sent to the Detroit House of corrections to serve out their sentences. Did the writers of the white lone ranger take inspiration from local legends of this morally upright black lawman who patrolled the wild west? Burton thinks so. Although he admits there's no conclusive proof. By the time Reeves retired from his long career as a federal lawman, he was famous throughout the territories. There were folk songs written about his heroics, and he could nab a fugitive by the power of his reputation alone. The story goes that Belle Starr and outlaw known as the female Jesse James, turned herself in at Fort Smith, when she heard that Reeves had her warrant. Despite being hunted by aggrieved outlaws for most of his life, Reeves died of natural causes at the age of 72. One obituary published at the time wrote no history of frontier days would be complete no mention of bass Reeves, and no tale of the old days of hell on the border, could be told without the old deputy Marshall as a prominent character. A TV series based.
Airline Pilot Guy - Aviation Podcast
"fort smith" Discussed on Airline Pilot Guy - Aviation Podcast
"To divert to Denver, where the aircraft landed on runway three 5 right without further incident, about 45 minutes after departure from Hayden. There were no injuries, the aircraft sustained substantial damage. However, and the FAA reported the aircraft incurred a tail strike on departure, heading, Colorado. State of the damage was unknown. An incident later correcting it to an accident, probably because of the extent of the damage and the cost of repair or showing a picture from that tail strike on the tail end of that JetBlue. And yeah, scraped it up pretty good. I kind of find it hard to believe that somebody sitting in the back like one of the flight attendants didn't hear that probably very loud sound when they tail hit the runway, and I can't imagine that a flight attendant hearing that wouldn't immediately call the cockpit and tell them that, hey, I think you hit something or something doesn't sound right here. Well, it did say later in the article passengers reported the tail strike was clearly felt and heard upon rotation for takeoff. And I would think, I guess if you only have flight attendants sitting up front, maybe gonna have to notice they've got to have one in the back, at least one. Maybe. It would be hard for me to believe that a passenger would notice something that a flight attendant wouldn't notice, first of all. And then I would have thought the passengers would have said something. If it was heard by three or four people I would assume that at least one of them are safety conscious or flight weary and would make a comment. Because you didn't say it, but the thing that I thought was. You know, the concern about the pressure bulkheads and the pressure vessel and as they climb up to altitude and try to start pressurizing the airplane, what sort of impacts that tail strike had on the structure. Yeah, that's the critical risk when you have a tail strike as that whole pressure issue and the pressure bulkhead in the back. So the reason why this happened, according to the FAA data, radar tracking data, beach, three 50, registration November 3 50 Juliet, arriving from Fort Smith Arkansas, was an approach to haydn's runway two 8 at the time of the accident and touched down at 1158, about 100 seconds after departure of the a three 20. At the time of the a three 20 becoming airborne, the beach three 50 was 2.85 nautical miles, so within three miles of the runway, two 8 threshold descending through 900 feet above ground level at the time the B three 50, which is a three 50. It's touched down there. The a three 20 was climbing through 8800 feet, MSL. About 2.2 nautical miles passed the runway one zero and which is the runway two 8th threshold in a slight right hand turn about .4 nautical miles off the extended runway center line. Hayden's yampa valley airport features a runway one zero two 8 of 3048 meters or 10,000 feet long, at an elevation of 6600 feet MSL, they do not have a control tower, so you have to use well it says a unicom frequency is published for the airport, but I would imagine maybe that's what he's saying is a seat half a common traffic advisory frequency. So this is one of those cases where you have to, I mean, from the moment you your airplane starts moving when you're pushing back when you're taxing out to the runway, you're monitoring this common traffic advisory frequency for other aircraft in the area who are also hopefully making radio calls alerting folks of where they are in relation to the airport and this is the way without a dedicated control tower and air traffic controllers that you kind of manage these situations, which is not uncommon. There are a lot probably more airports in our country, probably way more airports in the country. That have no control towers as opposed to the ones that have manned air traffic controllers and control towers. So you have to communicate and let everybody know what's going on. I have a feeling that in this case, perhaps maybe because of the duties, the flight deck duties going on with the a three 20, maybe they weren't really listening to what was happening as far as airport airplanes coming into. And I think Hayden is one of those. I have not flown there myself. It might be one of those airports where you it's like a one way in and one way out. A deal because of all the high terrain and yeah that's kind of what it looks like. I'm unfamiliar with that airport. And I wasn't actually familiar with another destination in Colorado that would be taken airbuses. But when I went and looked at it, it looks like it's the feeder airport for steamboat springs. So it's kind of a resort, a resort type of destination. But yeah, you mentioned that there are a lot more airports in our country that don't have control towers than do have control towers. But I would say it is fairly rare that scheduled carriers flying something as big as a three 20 into those airports. A lot of times you'll see CRJ 200s, maybe flying into the small airports that control towers. But I was a little surprised to see her playing that big flying and doing that. This was something that I just noticed. They have a metars listed for the time before and after this incident. And the one that's highlight actually in bold print is the one I think that occurred that was current at the time of this incident. And I'm really concerned about this one because it's in the winter column, no problem. 9 statute miles of visibility. The ceiling overcast 500, 500. That's instrument meteorological conditions. So it would seem to me that if this is IMC and they're flying both airplanes are on instrument flight plans, how is it that the air traffic control didn't restrict the incoming airplane from landing until the JetBlue had taken off or conversely, how is it that the jet blue airplane was allowed? A release from the airport when this king air three 50 was an approach. So something doesn't make sense here to me. If it was BFR, I could see it, but not in these weather conditions. But, you know, even if it was VFR operations, I would assume that the Airbus for sure would be departing on an IFR departure, even if it's VFR VMC, and I would assume something as big as a king air was more than likely flying on an instrument flight plan..

"Males. Bom cast a giant bomb dot com is the email address and you should send us some emails for me to look at and go, huh. And then I will pull a handful of them and read them as I am about to do. Right? About now. Oh, here we go. Let's see here. We talked last in the lot of the discussion around halo has been around the idea of game pass and the game being sold on steam for $60, whereas you could just sign up for game pass. A couple of people wrote in to try to give use cases for why they would buy the game on steam and not do game pass. This one seems like the one was around it being extremely buggy and that sort of stuff. I know some people have had trouble with the Xbox app and some of the other stuff in Windows, but I still feel like that's a contact customer support problem and not just go spend whatever. People want to play games and play them when they're new. I get it. But anyway, this one from Sam in Fort Smith says you talked to a respawn cast about kind of weirdos might buy halo infinite on steam instead of the game pass. And I just want to throw out the same kind of weirdos who play games on Linux. Wow. Infinite doesn't work on proton yet. But it seems likely that it will be made to work long before we get a functional Linux game pass client. Yeah. So serious, freaks here. Steam deck. Yes, and as he says, like, so far, Linux has been 1% and growing for 5 months on the steam hardware survey. It'll be interesting to see if the steam deck helps to grow our numbers. Sam you're not wrong. But speaking of steam deck, anyone order an analog pocket that this morning today? No. 45 minutes late so I don't know what block I'm in, but I get the feeling I'm not gonna see that thing for a year. 2026. Yeah, I don't know. I know they send some out for people to people for review and stuff like that. Just I don't know, like their whole. I'm curious to see what they do with third party core development in terms of what can it do other than the stuff they're selling it for because the idea of having a collection of Game Boy cartridges seems like the worst, like I don't want it, I'm not going to do that. Well, yeah. So the other thing is they typically, and by the way, I mean, some mysterious manufacturer releases jailbreak firmware for most of their devices at or around the launch of said devices that lets you run things off an SD card and stuff like that too. So I don't know, I've read a story last night from the author of MGB a, which is a, one of the leading Game Boy Advance emulators out there about how they were contacted to maybe produce a royalty free firmware or bios replacement. Boot rom replacement for the GBA for the analog pocket and how the business dealings there went and how that didn't sound especially great. And there's just a lot of stuff swirling around analog that makes you not necessarily feel great rooting for some time. And you know I compare that to the open-source mister project, which I will grant you is not a handheld. But that's not necessarily what I'm personally looking for anyway. And it already does all that stuff, plus now the guy working on the PlayStation one core is releasing knightleys of that and every day it plays more games. It doesn't do audio yet and all this other stuff, but you can run Castlevania sympathy the night. You can play ridge racer. You can play tech N one and two Street Fighter YX, like a lot of more and more PlayStation games are starting to run that thing and it's like super impressive. So I'm excited about the future of that thing. And it probably more likely to buy a second to mister than I would to buy an analog pocket. Yeah. I mean, I think for me, it's just the appeal of being able to play those games on a handheld again. I didn't actually own a consoles for the longest time. My most of my gaming was to either PC or Game Boy. So I have a lot of nostalgia for that and I was watching videos kind of breaking down like the screen and how faithfully they were able to kind of recreate the specific kind of feel of or look of those screens, kind of like capturing the way they move in the refresh rate and that to me is like super appealing that you can kind of get like a very authentic experience without necessarily having to go that's more interesting to me than getting those ISP screens in modding a gameboy because those screens apparently have all sorts of weird ghosting issues and refresh issues. Oh, sure. Yeah, I didn't know much about the weird stuff around analog. But I know the dude who's kind of like the guy's been in charge of making all this stuff up, Kevin Horton is like a super smart guy. Absolutely. I think that dude is like hella talented. So I'm almost like, I kinda want to support him more than like analog the company, I guess, in a way, but yeah. That's interesting. I get it. The marketing arm of that thing is, yeah, they say some stuff off often that you're just like, hi, that doesn't. I don't know. I got a huge kink for just pre ordering handhelds. You know? Never come out and play days and steam. Yeah. Fucking line them up, man. The day they arrive, I'm just gonna be so sad. 'cause you have nothing else to look forward to or what?.

That flexibility aspects. So that's just one data driven example. How i view a transformation innovation and the organization and talk about the team that you veer the teams that you lied. Perhaps on the two sides of of your set of responsibilities however each organiz cleats Yeah that's a great question. So when i came into the role really start planning for the role when i was cfo cio. I was working with the leadership team at our best technologies trying to think about how to recondition of that organization and one challenge that we saw in this is this is probably typical another larger. It organizations have a single cio. That is a very small school for the kind of the into and information technology spectrum and we really felt like we wanted to kind of break that apart and have our cio who reports up to me is focused on at systems in software development all the software insistence that our employees that our customers use out of a. That's under that individual as well and then that our cto is focused more on traditional infrastructure. cybersecurity help desk technical services roles in the organization and they speak to. The person speaks the board once a year on cybersecurity topics as corey report on cybersecurity topics for the organization. So those that's how we kind of split up traditional information technology role and then we rolled in the economic analysis group which is a group of of a folks have masters and in math or other related areas and that forms our data science group And then the last group is rnd group and these are folks that are engineers a master's level level engineers in their focused on the physical device saying around supply chain technologies things. Like i we get into things like rfid or iot or tablets or freight moving devices and so they progressed that that function for the company very dynamic it and how is the team is most the team in fort smith where you are today and where you're the firm is headquartered or do is distributed across multiple parts of the parts of the country or world. So that's a great question peterson. Learn things that we did coming into the changes in two thousand fifteen is a you. Our history is really cheap about developing ninety most of the software we developed in house ninety five percent of that software in house and we realized that we needed to do that anymore that we wanted to maintain a high level of customization in the software development capacity to do that but we also realized that we needed a source externally needs create more variable capacity in the organization across all those areas.

The transformation out of the airport is read. Been really eye-opening with the new parking garage and now a new. No skywalk in skydive it's in development and those are just the you know the exterior renovations and improvements for the passengers on the outside. You know then we're talking about. Maybe you know improvements to their to the runway into the gate area for the airplanes and the airline industry themselves for them to enjoy a little bit a little bit more upgraded x. A so yeah. It's a lie. It's a lot of fun to. Jeff always does a good job of keeping up with the transportation and transportation beaten ray. What's going on out there. So yeah so it's gonna be good. It's gonna be really exciting so you guys have a couple of other programs that you do. Every year that people really look forward to the fast fifteen and the other one hundred forty forty year actually have four recognition programs. Those are two long ones fast. Fifteen forty under forty. About six years ago we introduced a women in business. Yup and the c.

Sebastian crawford county east in fort smith and just a bit east madison and carroll county okay. Yeah that does. That's technically the six county coverage area for the north west arkansas business journal. Yeah that's funny because we actually have a lot of listeners. Down in fort. Smith people are constantly saying. Hey we would you cover somebody down here. Can we get to somebody. Getting your podcast. And i'm like yes. Sure i mean i don't mind to drive down here. It's not that far. So i think it's i think it's important for us to to kind of understand the scope of how big this area is because i think we look back in another twenty years. You know. we're going to be looking like you know. Go she'll be like downtown. Fayetteville right ethica. Will you think. I mean when you think of the expansion of this area. It's going to be like. wow now. we think ocean. It's kind of out there but well we that could chain. That's another bentonville example old. I moved there twenty years ago. Centerton was kind of out there down the highway centerton. Has they have a high school. F- sit down restaurants thanks. They have retail. They have apartments. They have all kinds of talk about building houses every two days. They can't build houses quickly enough in centerton. So that's another example of Of canada which you'd call now bedroom community to bitten. Villa is really just exploded in the past twenty years. Yeah absolutely that. I think that's really interesting. You mentioned something. We talked about bella vista earlier and this was something that i learned about the area. I don't know how much you know about this. But i'd love to hear your thoughts on it. I didn't realize how big of a retirement destination. Bella vista is your. We'll be careful now. They'll they'll hate that description. Listen they got a golf course everywhere. You turn and bella vista. They got beautiful off course into a golfer here. Manso it is. I mean that's obviously. That's the history of bella vista how was developed as a retirement community. Cooper communities developed a cherokee village. North arkansas bella vista village in hot springs village. All based around leisure in golf or and being attractive place for retirees from all areas of the country particularly the upper midwest and the north. But if you look at their demographics today and like. I said that's where they're building houses for a lot of people. A lot of people are taking advantage of the affordability of buying some of the lots Faring fon some available and building a house there but it's you know there are bentonville schools and bella vista. There's an elementary school and bella vista. They have part of the gravity. School district is in bella vista. So yes certainly. That'll that'll be. How bella vista is sir recognize. You know that's the senior citizens live. That's where the retirees live if you look at it as a slight it's definitely not enough. Yeah i mean jamie doug are. Advertising buys president we she and her husband live in bella vista and have for years. We'll kind of kit her about you. Know it's six o'clock about ready to go to bed and you know when your time you dinner a couple hours ago. That short blue plate special bella vista is a high. You say it's a great place with you know if you'd like to play golf. Lots of golf courses out there but it's not even just golf though. And here's the argument that i would make for somebody that's thinking about retiring in really doesn't want to go to florida. I mean you've got you. We do have four seasons but much a much milder winter. Although that week in february was an anomaly in was certainly rough a man for those that don't know we had a really rough week where it was like below zero for a period of arctic tundra arctic tundra type stuff. But you know coming from boston. I'm like i've i've seen worse. So but i mean you just have a little bit of everything i mean you can go. You know you can just go a couple of miles and do really great fishing. You got the buffalo river right up right up the road. You've got up just amazing. Outdoor activity both in northwest arkansas. Here as well as in southwest missouri. So you've got a little bit of everything and i will kind of going back to underscore the point of of the The image of bella vista you also have not just golf. There's a there's a. Everybody knows about the mountain biking in bentonville. There's also growing trail mountain biking. that's extending into bella. Vista could be extending even even a greater way. I think with some of the some of the lion moves that are being done some of the land acquisition as being done. I really think that area i mean. Just think the boxy right and when you talk about north north bengal northwest northeast bill particularly when you start to stretch into bella vista that area right. There is a think really ripe. For maybe even more mountain biking development minute that the mountain biking development that we have right. Now it's not the end. This is really kind of even the beginning of of really this culture that is really being driven here by the tourism leaders economic development leaders. You know rex nelson who's great columnist at the democrat zad. And he's on with roby on his television show and frequently. He likes to say tourism and leisure and hospitality quality of life. That's the new economic development strategy testing new economic development driver. Rod it's not. it's not big smokestacks. Big mills and textile manufacturing. Those things are always have their place. But that's not the primary strategy in arkansas anymore. For driving economic development on you obviously see that in bentonville being times in the downtowns and the the culinary Seen and the restaurants the mountain biking and all that stuff is a part of. What's happening here. yeah in even just to piggyback on that. What's happening with common and blue crane development. And what's you know. I mean so there's there's a lot of new opportunities also because mean i if i you know in the future i think work is going to be a lot different and if you go to a place where you can be agnostic about where you live and people give you the opportunity to say. Hey you can live in north west arkansas. But you know you're based out of new york or i have. I have a friend that lives in bentonville downtown loves it and is based out of a company in atlanta and and had the choice in atlanta's happening right i mean and so this person was like actually i actually like it here right for a number of reasons. The least of which was that that you knows it was his kid could walk to school. There were a lot of factors in the mid atlanta. Traffic is rough in. You know with may have our own traffic issues one day. It's not atlanta's not going to be atlanta traffic. So trust i lived there for a while but anyway i just think it's really interesting this this this area has you know. We'll.

"It has been almost a year since the covid. Nineteen outbreak was declared a pandemic. it's an anniversary. I'm sure many of us are not too happy to celebrate. This year has been a real challenge in the pandemic has fundamentally changed our lives but many folks have found ways to not let isolation get the best of them. I know so many people out there all around the north. Were ready to support you. I think a good storyteller reminds you that all storms pass. We've been here before but we can help to route at resilience and make them more aware of how strong young folks are this week. Unreserved how indigenous people are turning to digital communities storytelling and culture feel connected to squash those isolation blues cleo denny writer richard van camp has essentially been on a one book a year pace for two decades his latest called gathered share some secrets to great storytelling and it includes seven stories.

It's the maty capital of the northwest territories if it's paradise schwartzman throws territories officially quadri-lingual so bush cre- dna a french and english spoken at any given time. And when i graduated from high school i ran. I went from hero to zero. Because i had no idea what i wanted to do. No idea at all. I wanted to be a break dancer. I wanted to be a minjah. i was nineteen. I had a mullet. Some pinch hickeys. And i actually had a real existential crisis. I had a midlife crisis at nineteen. Cause i was like what am i gonna do. Who am i supposed to be. And i saw that. They were looking for drivers for the handy bus. They were looking for volunteers. And when i saw that on the green screen in fort smith northwest actors. The bango channel. I realized that that was what i was going to do. I was going to volunteer. I'll start driving the elders around. Because i was a really good canadian. Really good treaty indian. I was a really good person. I was a former. But i was a really poor ki- chou denny. I didn't know anything about our language. I knew a little bit of butter culture through our mother. But you know i was so busy having fun growing up by what i realized when i showed up to begin my apprenticeship as a handy bus driver in fort smith northwest territories to the matriarchs to the lighthouses to the mama. Bear's portsmouth arthritis territories. And i'm talking about irene centers. Dora toronto seraphine evans. Emilia gate tricks. I'm talking about the sweethearts of our community.

It was trips to cancers in the northern store and trips to the landslide to watch the pelicans return it was through those driving shuttling and careering the royalty of our community wherever they wanted to be that they started sharing their stories with me so gather is really about what i learned. The smartest thing. I ever did belan was i realized a few months into apprenticeship as the handy bus driver. Fort smith risk territories. No one was recording our elders.

"With Stephanie Abrams on the line with me is Kathleen Jarvis. She lives in Fort Smith, Arkansas. She has been a volunteer. At the monastery at Fort Smith ST Scholastica for many, many years, probably decades now. Um She Committed ourselves to helping None she befriended. Sister, Catherine Marquis. Oh, is still living at the monastery and Fort Smith, Arkansas toe help her connect with her Irish roots. And sister Catherine was approaching 80 years old. Of all the places that we sorted out. For you to visit before we joined you on the fourth day of your journey through Ireland. On for the rest of that trip that we spent together. What are the things that come to mind? Maybe you can list them and then we can delve into them a little better. Well, what are the things that stand out beyond the amazing people? Which we need to talk about in Ireland. Um Of the places that we visited the experiences we had. Well, I cash it. Actually, you've given me a hard job. I I would have to say that not Woz way up there on top of the list E visiting of in County Mayo, the knots trying to marry in trying, which is, by the way, I read that it's visited by A million and a half people every year. Um and I would have to say the I think it was called the famine ship. That that Brody Right gun, Probably famine ship in County Wexford again, please. What was that again? It's in county, Wexford County. Wexford is the Easter, Southeastern County and Ireland. And when you travel westward from Wexford The next county that abuts it is Waterford and most people know what effort because of Waterford Crystal because of what it for castle and also because Woodford is the place historically. That the beast Oliver Cromwell. Who? Somebody I can't believe it. Megan Megan McCain, Um, commented on something a few weeks back, and she pointed to Oliver Cromwell is a source. I don't know why in the world she would bring up that awful man's name. Hey, was miserable to the Irish. And, um, miserable all around and responsible for, um, killing the king of England. Ending the idea of that the King is descended from God. You can't kill the king. Even in chess. You just not come over, but you can't kill him. But in Waterford, he's the one Oliver Cromwell, who wanted Waterford because there's such a strong pork. And he told his soldiers you go in there and you take Waterford for May. And really, I don't care how you get it. You can come in from Crook's head. Or from hook. So you get it by hook or by crook. Which of the two places look on the map of the south of Ireland on the Atlantic Coast line, and you will see the places of of crooks head and hook and we have taken that in our language as get it by any means. When we say you get it, by hook or by crook. It leads back to an Irish story is not amazing. But that's all just to the west of County Wexford. It's amazing how much you know of Irish history. Well, us that favorite spots I have to tell you. Another outstanding place was Trinity College. You know, of course, the sister. Katherine for so many years had been the arc of this that at ST Scholastica, she's she is a true intellectual. Let me tell you, she was in her glory at Trinity in her glory. Uh, Sure you could tell us all about Trinity color? Well, the interesting thing about Trinity College in Dublin is that when you.

"This is a year where we have to acknowledge that there was a war on the police. In a spontaneous monologue. I let rip On the theme was They've done it now. You responded Incredibly, when we posted this on social media here is my response to the war on police. From something called lower officer dot com. I'm not familiar with that. But I've read the article and it's not anonymous. By an officer Travis Yates. I don't know if that's a suit in him, but I doubt it. It's about everything we witnessed in the last three weeks. It's tough. This is the hardest thing I have written. I grew up in a law enforcement family. My father worked his way up to the rank of captain. The Fort Smith Arizona Police Department as a kid I remember going with him on Friday to pick up his check that I was in all of the superheroes he worked around. They were funny and fun to be around men and women of all races, all with the same mission to make the community safer. My dad sacrificed a lot, and so did my late mother. Whether it was the week long surveillance or wiretap or chasing drug runners across the country. He gave it all for my family and worked plenty of extra details to never let our family be without Some would call that privilege. But where I grew up, it was called hard work. The kids at school. Thought it was cool that my dad did the job of a policeman. And while he sometimes asked me if anyone gave me a hard time they never did. There was respect among all even the kids in shop class. I didn't grow up wanting to be a cop. But one fateful night. There's a freshman in college that all changed. I went on a ride, along with my life's journey would never be the same again. After four years of college. My dad wanted me at an agency. The respected that education, so I moved to Tulsa at 21 never looked back. I didn't know anyone and all I knew was what I saw. My dad do work hard and treat people with respect. I saw a lot of other cops working hard as well and doing all they could to keep the community safe. 27 years have passed. And if you would have told me the condition of Lauren Force Mint today, I never would have believed you. It's not that law enforcement has changed for the worst, but everything around it has the mentally ill used to get treatment. And now they just sent us cops. Kids used to be taught respect. And now it's cool to be disrespectful. Supervisors used to bank you when you were right, but now they accuse you of being wrong. In order to appease crazy people. Parents used to get mad at their kids for getting arrested, and now they get mad at us. The media used to highlight the positive contribution our profession gave to society, and now they either ignore it or twist the truth for controversy, tow line their own pockets. They used to be a common respect among criminals. If they got caught, they understood you had a job to do. But now it's our fault. They sit in handcuffs rather than their own personal decisions. If someone attacked a cop they were seen as such. Now we martyr them and sue for millions. We used to be able to testify in court, and we were believed now unless there is a video from three different angles. No one cares what you have to say. With all this talk about racism and racist cops. They've never seen people treated differently because of their race. And while I know that cowards that have never done this job will call me a racist for saying it. All I've ever seen was criminal behavior and cops trying to stop it and they didn't give a rip. What their skin color awas I've seen cops help and save any type of race, gender or ethnicity You can think off. And while that used to mean something No one cares anymore. I've been called every name you can think of, in many off them with racial overtones, and it's never come from cops. I've watched African American cops take the brunt of this and even talked one rookie out of quitting after he was berated by a lot of cowards that had the same skin color as him. I've never heard. I've heard words I never heard before coming a cop. Uncle Tom Cracker Pig in the n word just to name a few. I've heard them thousands of times and never once did I see an officer retaliate. They just So kids Nasty. The nasty words have now turned into rocks and bottles and gunfire. I've watched it happen to those around me, and I've seen the total destruction of their life. This job is a walking time bomb. And you could get canceled or prosecuted on the very next call, even if you do everything right? No profession has to deal with them. Law enforcement is tasked with the same thing as medicine toe Look after lives and we are very successful Despite the most violent society we have ever seen less than 1000 suspects are killed a year 96% of them are attacking us with weapons and all but a few others are attacking us with their cars or their fists. And more and more with simulated guns, so Benjamin Crump can help their family when the lottery Now the little we have, we are told they're going to defund us or even abolish us..

Opportunity Through Persistence with Cordia Harrington
"Hey, guys you know what I love about America and the free, market? Enterprise. What I love about business leadership is what I love about Andre Leadership and that is that we believe that great success can come from humble beginnings. You guys know this. You know in our country, it doesn't matter what your skin color is. It doesn't matter if you're male or female. All. It takes passion drive and a desire to make a difference. You may say why don't have enough money to get started? I don't have enough education I. Don't know the right people guys. I'm telling you those are all just excuses. From the Ramsey network this is the entreleadership podcast where we help business leaders, themselves, their teams and their prophets. I'm your host Daniels Hardy and my guest today is Accordia Harrington she's the founder and CEO of the Bakery Coast today they've got multiple plants and customers around the world including. McDonald's Oh Charlie's pretty big deal. But. It didn't start out that way and like a lot of great success stories that start with really humble beginnings accordions is really not that much different. And all began for her and a small town in Arkansas. I started my first business in Russellville. Arkansas. Do you know where that is i? Know Arkansas. Russell. Okay. Well. Down a beautiful town on a lake about halfway between Little Rock and Fort Smith and my first business was a real estate company concept one realtors and foretelling we use tweet emblem on a real estate vine. Yeah. Little. Did I know? And that began. With the good fortune of having bartered for office space from a doctor that had a big empty building and least my chairs and my desk three dollars a month for the deaths and a dollar fifty a month for the chairs and I was in the real estate business us all five hundred, eighty, seven dollars to buy plywood signs to put in front yards and it grew and it was so much fun. The ladies that I hired. We were the first off you mill business in Arkansas, and the men bankers would literally come by to see what we're doing. And we would stage houses. That's before we knew what staging was and we would try to rearrange the furniture in houses so that they showed the best and it took off so you're showcasing the houses to make them look great. That's very common these days. What was it uncommon? Totally people thought we were so weird to come into their house and stake some pictures down in rearrange the furniture Abed we were trying to give them the best opportunity to get their house sold. You know back then houses there eighteen hundred square foot house two car garage on an acre of land with a lakeview guess how much it was I can't even guess forty thousand, you're really cloak. Thousand. and. So you know and there were lots of properties available and not very many buyers. So it was it was an interesting business in the only reason. I. Got Out of it. I. Loved it. I loved working with the families helping a find a home bettering their life but the people that moved to town the For your family bought the local McDonalds. Daniel. But when I grew up, I didn't know you could own a McDonald's and when I found out, they owned it. I was like all. That is cool. They lived on a Beautiful Lake House they drove a Mercedes than they had every weekend with their family. So for me I thought Gosh this would be so great. They didn't like living in Russellville they wanted to move I love Libyan Russellville K- I can imagine a real estate you weren't necessarily your weekends with wasn't a thing and you're just grinding all the time. So was it was the opportunity for flexibility? What was what like when you kind of had the dream I mean Mercedes is nice but was like drawing you to them exactly. Well, unfortunately, I went through a divorce and my children were one three and five when I did that in having a job that I could be off on the nights and weekends was very motivating. I was driven to spend more time with my kids and yeah I, mean the perks looked nice to but are really wanted quality time with my. Kids an and in as much as I love real estate, it was just impossible. So many business owners I talk to really the family is the reason that they get into owning their own business. You know maybe they work at a corporation at its ninety hours a week than ever see their family, even the money can be nice but I mean, you look up and your kids are. Little and they start growing and you go I'm missing out on their lives. Curious to hear from you how you continue to keep that value as the business grows and scales because there's a little bit of the grass is greener on the other side. If I have my own business, I'll have the flexibility and the autonomy, and it can also be that same dragon that takes you away. From your family if you're not careful yet you're totally right and I haven't the greatest respect for restaurant owners because when I did buy my first McDonald's we were unable to stay in. Russellville that just wasn't the way McDonalds did things and that was offered the chance to buy the EFFINGHAM. Illinois McDonald's where that is I know effingham driven through there once okay. Most people have driven by. Again, a big town of ten thousand people and we had an interstate McDonald's that I purchased. At the time I paid a very high price for it. This was nineteen, eighty, nine paid a million, six, fifty, four it and I had to figure out how to grow sales in order to make that Walker, twenty, seven, thousand, dollar a month payment. And the only way to do it was to drive more sales as you know, that's the way it. But if you'RE GONNA ten thousand, how do you find more people? Yeah. I can imagine I mean the supply and demand kicks in a real way. What was it? An existing store was this new store? It was an existing store in the man was retiring and it was a good store because it was in the middle point if you're driving from St Louis Chicago. Great Place to stop get a bite to eat go to the restroom. Great Location. But again, how do you grow the sales and so? Back and that day an eighty nine we didn't have cell phones, but we did have CB radios. So we began to have some fun get on the radio and go hey, good buddy. If you're driving a bus stop by, we'll give you a free meal if you bring your bus

Its happening in Knoxville: Time, money and marketing make smaller cities viable tech hubs
"This marketplace podcast is brought to you by the Michigan Economic Development Corporation John Romanelli Finder and CEO at airspace experienced technology says in Michigan Revolution is in the air find out what planet is doing to help businesses make that possible at platinum dot com. That's P. L. A. N. E. T. M. Dot com lots of cities would like to become tech hubs but it takes time money and these days marketing from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Jed Kim in from Hollywood. There are many reasons city wants a flourishing tech industry a lot of high paying jobs investments in the community community and cultural institutions of course when it grows too fast there can also be downsides like stratospheric housing prices gentrification but that's far off the radar of most cities that really want to court big tech remember the rabid fervor of the Amazon. HQ to competition for for cities that didn't get in early on tech developing as a hub is a long process with a lot of things that have to go right. Jim Biggs worked in silicon can valley for years before moving to Knoxville Tennessee where he's Executive Director of the Knoxville Entrepreneur Center which is a business accelerator he laid out the hurdles his city and others face access to capital from one though just isn't much free-flowing capital venture capital in particular that makes it into some of these smaller communities then the second is attracting and retaining talent you know I think people want to move to places where they see opportunity and where they think that that if this startup doesn't work then I've got one straight down the road that I can go to jump in there. I'm imagine there is a flip side. So what are the advantages manages well. I guess the obvious one is that the cost of living is substantially cheaper than it is. If you WANNA talk about San Francisco New York Boston that's been. I think the biggest selling point but what we found is that most of these smaller communities also have one or two unique strengths were assets that they're able to leverage in some way that aren't art being sort of replicated in places like the bay area and I think that's also been a strong driver of a lot of the the startup communities in these in these smaller regional economies finding access to investment can be an issue. How do you solid that problem. You do two things. One is you cultivate relationships with people in the communities where there is more capital and then you also also have to educate the local population about the value of investing in new business creation for a long time it it was more perceived as altruism than it was a sort of risky but potentially lucrative asset class and so you had people who had wealth in the community who were being persuaded to put money into things because there buddy was into it or because their kids brother's son was doing it which is great but then when that thing flames out and these do the you know the the responses man. I'm never doing that again and so you know a lot of people have come and gone from the the investor her community without being offered a more structured way to both do something that supports the community but also provide a return that they're looking in for Jim. Biggs is Executive Director of the Knoxville Entrepreneur Center. He says he did two things upon arriving in Knoxville one he started saying y'all to he filled his closet with orange close so he'd blend in at University of Tennessee Football Games and now for some links wired looks at the problems of brain drain from smaller cities to superstar ones like San Francisco New York Etcetera. It also looks at effort. Some places are undertaking to reverse the flow. The state of Vermont has been offering ten thousand dollar reimbursements for people to move there the air and work remotely similar program has been established for Tulsa Oklahoma. There have been quite a few takers in general smaller cities hold a salary advantage over larger cities when adjusted for cost of living techrepublic says the top ten locations are Justin. Salaries are all small to mid sized cities. These top spot goes to Brownsville Harlingen Texas followed by Fort Smith Between Arkansas and Oklahoma. My Hometown Toledo Ohio comes in at number five five. Go mud hens. The thing is this is true in general but not when it comes to the tech industry tech salaries after adjustment are still still five percent higher in large metro areas compared with smaller ones so how can smaller cities compete the Brookings Institution agrees with Jim. Big said about figuring out what unique benefits your city can offer and investing in them. That's what Syracuse New York is doing to build up as a center for developing unmanned systems tech. The city has a historical electronics industry as well as in sensors and defense that may give them a leg up on developing being drawn tech tech accelerator there has attracted many international companies.
