"Living I'm your host, Belinda Skeleton. Today we have one of the most popular restaurant tours and president of the restaurant group Fresh Fred Castellucci of the Castellucci Hospitality group. And my Sad kick, Um David dancing of the rest of the website bites and sites start net. And we are talking about the pandemic and and its toll it's taking on the restaurant industry and Fred Castellucci. Thanks for joining us on Atlanta living Of course. My pleasure. Thanks for having me. Here we go again. Yeah. Tell me about it. Well, tell David and I how you feel about it. Um, you are president of the Georgia restaurant industry and, um, what you and your colleagues are talking about these days. Well, I think you know the restaurant business to begin with is an extremely challenging one in normal times. So the last 15 16 months is taken the degree of difficulty up substantially. But, you know, we felt as though with the easing of restrictions and, um, really, just the incredible outpouring of support that we've seen in the last few months that things were really getting back to normal. And, you know, in the last couple weeks, certainly, um I think the news and as well Some of the restrictions that have come out have dampened things a little bit, But I would still you know, generally put myself in the optimistic category. I think that people still want to support restaurants. They want to go out. They want to have a good time. People are tired, and they're ready to get back to, uh, to their normal lives. Yeah, Fred? Um, So you know, this is kind of deja vu all over again In some ways, but in other ways, are you? Are you a little more battle hardened? Um, like, you know, there's clearly a new set of challenges, but compared to you know, last march, where it felt like the world was going to come to an end. Are you guys you guys have a pretty good battle plan in place. Um You know, do you have, uh, you know some contingencies. I know Some restaurants are requiring vaccination proof, you know. Are you guys What are you guys? You know what? What's the outlook look like, look like right now. Yeah. I mean, it couldn't be more different than we were. And last march. I mean, last March was an existential crisis for every single restaurant business out there. You had no idea if you are going to be able to operate your business day, one day to the next And so that level of stress and pressure is like unlike anything I think we'll ever see in our lifetimes. And then, of course, when the you know the stimulus came out, and the PVP no one actually knew that that was going to happen. And so in the early days from a business owner receipt, you know, I was thinking to myself. Oh, man, we got to prepare for war. Like basically every last dollar. We can get our hands on. Make sure it's in cash so that we can Essentially, you know, ride out the storm. And, you know, thankfully, there has been support. Help us get through it. But, you know, in those early days when we made the decision not to close any other restaurants never laid off any employees transition to you know all of the take out the delivery E commerce. I mean, we threw everything against the wall, but certainly an incredibly stressful time. But We pivoted the businesses quickly, and I feel really good about how we responded, and that really set us up to succeed honestly throughout the entire year, you know, we really focused on how we could get the business model to work, even if there was not going to be a whole lot of dining customers. But you know, the last few months have been really optimistic. People have been coming out. Business levels have been strong, really. You know, the biggest challenge we've actually had is that we can't find enough employees. You know, we can actually do quite a bit more business than we're doing right now. But I've had to take tables out of the restaurants again because we just don't have enough people to serve those those guests, and I'd rather take the tables out. Take a little bit of less less revenue than really disappoint people. But it's a top pill to swallow to take less revenue after the lab. 14 months of just getting absolutely crushed. So it's been one thing after another, but I think as it relates to specifically the pandemic, um I think generally, I'm very optimistic that most people Are vaccinated. Most people who are vaccinated feel comfortable dying out in restaurant, and that's really I think the most important thing, Yes. So, um, So we're talking with Fred Castellucci, the Castellucci restaurant group. And you guys have, um, bar mercado? Um you have double zero. You have Iberian pig. You have a new sushi place coming online Mujao, which I am counting the seconds. Um, I have got my seat at the omakase. A bar for that. You and me, Bob. You and me balls. It's been along with, you know, running restaurants throughout the pandemic building a new restaurant threw out the can't havoc is not death either, but between you know, contractor delays and supply chain issues and everything else has been challenging. But it's been a passion project of mine for a long time. And I've been trying to figure out a way to work with this chef. Since I Dined at his sushi counter and at Yuko in New York City three or four years ago. And you know when the pandemic hit actually created the perfect opportunity for him to come down, we did a pop up together. That was super successful out of our other restaurant cooks and soldiers as omakase take out, which was super cool and and that, essentially seeing the demand that was there for that made me believe that you know Atlanta was ready for a restaurant of this kind of style. You know, it's a very Intimate experience. It's only 15 seeds, um, with a little private dining room and addition of that, so, like 2021 seats altogether. It's just It's a very unique, intimate experience. It's also not cheap, so that's another concern. Mind Atlanta ready for a restaurant like this, but I think we are and not experience that you get. And Tokyo or New York of you know, just at the Typically top of the best quality products in the world is something that I think people recognize there's a value and are willing to pay for it. Yeah, I did. I did the takeout. It is exquisite sushi, If you just like, you know if you like. California roll and you want some, Uh you know, big old rice like no, This is this exquisite. It's almost too pretty to eat. Um, Fred, I was going to ask you if we can just step back on the Labour challenge. And the curious thing I have is the you know. Is this because we, um you know the there was too much stimulus or there was this enhanced unemployment, or are we experiencing that? Just a lot of people left hospitality. Um, when the pandemic hit like, what can you explain why it is so difficult to find labor? Because, you know, theoretically, we're still way below employment. Where we were back in 2019. And I'm just curious. Like where are the servers? Yeah, It's a great question. I think the answer is it's kind of a little bit of everything I would say that we saw. You know when unemployment ended, We saw little uptick and things got a little bit better. But I think largely the issue we have here is that you know when the pandemic hit almost every restaurant in America laid everybody off. All those people got displaced. And so a lot of those people instead of sitting around and collecting unemployment for over a year change industries. I mean, there's a lot of you know Amazon fulfillment centers, etcetera. There's so many places that are hiring especially ones that have big e commerce operations going into the pandemic that really flourished. People found other careers and I think we're starting to see that and then and the reality of that is setting in. I think for the foreseeable future. I think it's going to get better eventually because You know the restaurants while it is challenging work, and it is physical work there, it's lucrative to a certain extent. Um and and it's not necessarily a huge time commitment. You can do it nights and weekends and, you know, part time and so that it's really a great segue for people that are, you know, either in between jobs or You know, I want to make a career in the restaurant industry. But you know, are night owls and you know, are early risers. I think there's still a lot of people out there that the industry makes sense for, but it's just going to take some time to get back to equilibrium. Right. Well,.

She and her colleagues support people to sustain themselves, their communities and social movements from a place of spirit, creativity and courage. Across these last years. I've also come to love John is a friend of a different generation. She and I both believe that cross generational accompaniment. Is essential to meeting this century's callings towards belonging and healing. We draw each other out this hour. In that spirit. There is something about the fact that we are mortal that there is a definite beginning, middle and end to the arc of our lives that is at once humbling. But it also frees up so much. Yeah, it does. Allow us to have this generational view that like, Well, I'm here and one day I'm not going to be here and And so I can do what I can do during this time, and at the same time I can pass on that which came to me a seed as blossom and let somebody else plant it intends to it. And that is so, Fred. Um and if I could go back and talk to A younger version of myself. I would say it's okay to not build the whole house. It's okay to lay a foundation and be satisfied in that, But it's so great that you can say that to your younger self when you're still only and you're 30.

I would have told you. That was amazing. And then it happened and I did it for, like, three days. And I said No, no, no, no, no. We all got to figure something out to be in the studio. So we never really stopped working together as a group in the studio, which was probably my saving grace, which is not true for a lot of people. I think a lot of people Um, I don't know. I mean, I I think there were some people who really embraced the idea that didn't have to get dressed up. We didn't have to sit in traffic. You didn't have to go to work every day. And I can see why, Um, but for me, it turned out that actually going to work and hanging out with you guys was was what made the pandemic like somewhat, You know, I don't know palatable, but Other things were amazing. I didn't miss traffic. It was pretty great since we were out and about that we could get around very quickly. Um, I didn't miss big crowds everywhere. I didn't miss having to do things. You know, with work that word should have been an email meetings. That should have been an email Now we could just turn on them the zoom and then not really turn the camera on and not really pay attention. And so that was cool. I really like that. So I don't know The pandemic was bad for a lot of people. It was bad for us in a lot of ways, But in some other ways I was I don't know I was I was okay. I was okay with the idea of, uh of coming to work and not having to sit in traffic to do it. Um, but, yeah, movie theaters. I don't know. I mean, I can't remember the last time I know Rubio goes to a lot of movies. I can't remember the last time I was Yeah, it was super pumped to go to a movie. That wasn't Clifford. The big red dog. Um, in theaters. I don't remember the last time that I was I I was that pumped, Um, Hank. I mean, I'd probably go to if there were a movie that I were into. I'd probably go just because it's been so long to a theater. That would be kind of cool, but I don't know. What about you guys. What? What are you surprised that you missed and surprised that you didn't miss Um, I miss hugging strangers at concerts and, like passing. Well, maybe I still can't pass drinks. But, you know, I don't know, rowdy concert. You're passing some things around your hugging. You're making new friends. So I missed that I must travel for sure. And weirdly. I still wear my mask if I don't want to be seen, or if I don't want to put makeup on like I will miss the mask Because sometimes, like I don't want to see all creepy guy my building. I don't want to put makeup on to go to Trader Joe's So the mask. I'm sad to see Go I will say, um, I was at the Western Conference finals last night. The sons and the Clippers and I. Oh, you're the reason they lost friends. Well, you know, I'm not very good luck. Uh, When I went to two World Series games, the Cubs lost both of those. So there's there's a theme about about me going to watch my my, you know, childhood teams, but you know, I grew up the son, Stan. I was a son's ball, boy, And this is pretty amazing that I would somebody actually gave me tickets to go. So I jumped on a plane and went and I, it was as if nothing had ever happened, which in some ways was was kind of I don't know. It was annoying and refreshing all at the same time. I mean, honestly, every seat in the arena was filled. Nobody was wearing a mask. People are high fiving each other strangers you know when the sun's would score, which didn't happen very often last night, but nonetheless, it was like nothing had happened. It was like the most normal thing that I had attended. Um, I mean, just the corridors are filled with people. And it's amazing to think that a year ago that was impossible. And now, um, but it also makes me wonder. Not all those people were vaccinated, you know? No. I mean, you got to think there's a percentage of the people, whatever it is 30%. I mean, it is not vaccinated and they don't care. Um we got this variant going around. I don't know. Maybe it's too soon. I don't know it felt good. In that capacity, but you can't have it both ways. I didn't love having to like, uh, you know, push my way through the corridor to get to my seat. I didn't love waiting in the parking garage for 45 minutes to get out of the arena when it was over, But I loved the environment. So I guess you just can't have it both ways. I guess you can't have the energy of crowds and no crowd. If you can figure out how to do that, then I'm all for it. You shut up. You sure that's allergies to there, bro? Oh, I'm pretty sure it's allergies, but I'm still sitting in a room by myself. So if it's not, uh, who cares? It doesn't covid makes you puberty thing. That's not a symptom of covid..

"A shark was spotted early this morning, Swimming out shore near Oceanside Pier in Oceanside, California Lifeguards confirmed the approximately 9 ft Long shark was seen swimming about 300 yards from the pier. The ocean side, fire departments, B Beach lifeguard Sergeant Gregory Tribbey told Fox 11, he said it is unclear, but species of shark was spotted. Though this is the time here that the younger, great White swim closer in because they get at they swim for the round. They're a lot shorter than a lot smaller than 9 ft, though. However, there was video footage of the shark, which captured the creature getting caught on a fishing line or net of some sort. Someone hasn't seen in the video climbing down the ladder on the side of appear to try to free it. Um lifeguard Sergeant Trevi confirmed what was captured on video and said the individual was quote able to get the shark off the hook after approximately 25 minutes, But he did not state how close quote as a result of the sighting the ocean side Fire Department. So lifeguard division made public announcements warning swimmers in the water of the shark. I felt they just blanket closed it I prefer of the warning. Because I mean, look at yourself and all that. But the Oceanside Fire Department Lifeguard division would like to reiterate that sightings a rare along our coastline. Additionally, when seen, these animals are typically just passing through our waters. And I'm not dead. Not that I'm going to get all stickler on the law. But didn't that illegal to its if you accidentally net a shark? That's one thing, but it is not illegal to interfere with it there and not call. I mean, it's California. You gotta call some authorities. I'm sure but anyway, I'm not gonna No harm, no foul. The guy seen on video, actually freeing the shark and he lived so so the shark didn't take it personal. A zit turns out so we have the The latest numbers without the Sunday data L, a County covered 19 hospitalizations continue a downward trend that leads us to the to the statewide dashboard. By the way, if you miss this It's been all over the local news, Gavin versus Supreme Court. He's own one. The Supreme Court said that the California ban on the indoor worship is unconstitutional on Gavin came back and said, OK, but you can only do 25% capacity. What should I think? I think most churches are not going toe. They're going to make it work. You know, Because now you have the law on your side, saying he can't actually ban Indoor worship, which is which is interesting because by the way for the record back in 1918 1919, you know, all crowds were banned, including church schools were closed. Theaters. Lumbly theaters, Um, uh, All large gatherings were banned, including church for just a few weeks in Portland, Seattle, L. A San Diego San Francisco Azaz. It burned through major cities on the West Coast Church was lumped in with everything else, and no one complained at the time because the understanding was well, it's gonna be open. And, um The mayor of Seattle, famous famously said that any religion that won't keep for two weeks isn't worth having. And they were back open in two weeks still got him a bomb in his mailbox. But anyway s O here in California churches that were in defiance of it, continuing defiance, but others they're going to find a way to make it work. S O. L. A County reported 3123 new cases that's down. L. A County's still responsible for 18,044 death deaths since a pandemic began a lower apartment, the number of coronavirus patients and county hospital's continues to decline so dizzy the death rate. It peaked in January. I've almost three weeks ago two weeks ago on it continues to go down. But what does it mean for the state? Because the state is being really, really slow on this, And if you go to the if you go to the state dashboard Uh, if you go by county, you know, 58 counties in California. 54 of them are still in the purple here. And if you're utterly confused, why he didn't say green yellow red. It's because, he said, Green is evil and make people thinking everything's OK so again. The equivalent of this would be, um Orange. Is All good. We're not all get his moderate. It's like one before a green light red is substantial. Widespread is Purple and 54 counties are still under the widespread but the 54 counties because of the counties that are not under that are Sierra County. There's like five people there, Trinity County and Nortel like nine. So you had a Fred Um, Alpine County of the South and Lake Tahoe. There's a lot of people there's like 17, the counties that are still under purple account for 99.9% of California's 40 million people. 40,093,779 99.9% of them are still under the widespread, you know, locked down whatever you want to call it, you know, thinking with currently no one in sight. But at this point if the Supreme Court is listening to a lawsuit brought by churches, the next thing is Like what they did in San Francisco on the mayor, bringing suit to the San Sisto school district. It forced the school district to negotiate here in L. A. A similar tactic. You gotta stick to your guns, but at some point Somebody has to sue the governor. And the state superintendent of education, because ultimately they're handing these tools to the teachers unions. The teachers unions don't have the authority to shut down the school. They're not the health department. They're just giving the tools that they've been given on. But they're shutting down, keeping the school shut down. And I mean, if you don't know this was a big funding component to this like up in San Francisco, federal money matches number of butts and seats. So the mayor's Have to get those schools back open. The. Meanwhile the school district's who are not the unions, they're seeing. Thousands of students declare that they're now gonna homeschool and that's money out of their pockets. So nobody is happy with the teachers unions. In fact, most most actual teachers who teach like stuff and junk. They don't like what's going on right now, and they're hiding behind some 11 month old science. A lot of it was speculation. And what they're maneuvering around to is a situation where they skip to the headline to get vaccinated. Which to be honest with you. I don't have a real problem with that. But I want to use common sense because the majority of teacher the median age is 41.9 the number of deaths of people who are healthy who don't smoke of heart disease, diabetes. Some of the Khobar Morbidity Is tiny for people under 41. If you're over 41, or you think you might be at risk, then by all means, if if that's the difference between getting my school opened up that that's fine because they're saying Well, it needs they need this so they can keep your kids safe. Kids are virtually immune to this. The from from Cove it we have one under 18 in all of Kenya, California one dead. There's that murders thing that affects kids on Lee 75 kids have gotten it. One died of that. And that's what side effect of mirrors. I mean, In other words, we're at a situation now where the kids are at far greater risk of dying in a car accident on the way to school, including teachers. People under 41 are at greater risk of dying in a car accident on their way to school. Then they are dying of cove. It So there's there's that happy. Happy Monday. We'll be back in the second A and wrap up some more stuff. Of course we're telling the votes for Have you seen a free couch? Hashtag? Everything to Frankie freak out too.

With the board of Republicans, Democrats, independents And I think the other way that we're different is we don't just issue white papers and cross our fingers and hope something good happens. We actually turn our recommendation into legislation. That we lobby and Sometimes get past sometimes get past they get all the information. This is the most important thing you need to know kids. They get all their information from Reddit. Yes. We're trading on Gamestop today. No, that's an unbelievable story is a bizarro story is enough. All right, so, Fred Um, there are so many things we could talk about. You guys have have kind of champion the cause of lottery scholarships. You have champion the cause of some kind of measure for capital outlay. That is a big issue again. We need to fix that sucker. Champion. The cause of maybe making classroom teaching. Put more money into the classrooms less into administrations and the district's around the state to all kinds of Very interesting thing. So I'm gonna I'm just gonna leave it open to you. You start where you want to start. I was thinking we might start with our newest report, which was about predatory lending My favorite topic. Okay, good. My favorite topic. And as you may be aware, we have The highest rate in the country on small loans, even though we are a state with an epidemic of poverty right on, does two things sort of go together. So if you wanted a small loan in New Mexico 10,000 are less The lenders actually in charge you as much as 175% interest. So to put that in context for your listeners, that means if you were to take out of $400 alone, For a year. You would pay $700 in interest, in addition to the 400 of principles, that's $1100, and we think that's way too high. Many states now, depending on how you measure it between 22 36 states are 36%, which allows these companies to make a profit. These are risky loans. But at the same time makes credit affordable toe low income New Mexicans. This is a big issue of last year, According to the R L D folks who compiled these statistics, there was $666 million worth of these loans made in Mexico. We had our interns research where these companies there's 561 stores. To put that in context. That's that's seven times more than the number of McDonald's restaurants in New Mexico. And our interns did Yeoman's work in discovering that 85% of those stores are out of state corporations. So in effect, what we're doing is Taxing low income people and exporting those profits out of stain. By moving this rate down from 175% of 36% that would result in a lot of savings for low income people were going to spend that money immediately because they're not living large. On things like local restaurants and fixing their cars and things like that. That will help our local economy that time when we desperately to do this. And that's the other thing. These people are are also desperate for these loans. And, um, this is the exact right time to fix this once and for all. All right, let me jump in here real quickly. Here, Fred, Um, at that percentage a $400 loan. $700 of interest paid on that $400 loan. The design is I think the business model is to keep these people trapped. They will never even begin to pay down the principal, and therefore it becomes basically a lifetime. Source of revenue for these companies. Now, I don't know if it's still the case, but recently it was a case of some of these companies out of state companies are owned by tribal Corporations, which makes me absolutely insane. Why would they prey upon be parasites? User lending rates on their own people anyway, got to make a buck. Everybody's got to make a buck. So where are we with this? Or is there legislation to somehow remedy this this horrible disease? Yes. Um, And you're right. That is the problem, And that is the business model. In fact, some of these publicly traded companies and we got their violence with the Securities and Exchange Commission. And the first thing that they have to Discloses essentially their business model, and you described it very well. Richard. Yes, there is a bill. It's Senate Bill 66 that thank you. Mexico helped to draft along with our friends and new Mexicans for fair lending. It's uh, principal sponsor is Bill schools from last Crucis and carrying it in the house is Susan Herrera, who's from Espanola. Both the Democrats were hoping to get some Republican co sponsors very soon. And the bill was assigned to two committees and its first committee is the new Senate Tax, Business and Transportation Committee. And we expected hearing either Tuesday or Thursday of next week. All right, um What kind of push back is that bill getting the payday loan. Although Yep. Recent editorial piece in the in the papers by the these these use ary of a loan companies, um Stated that there's no such thing any more New Mexico's payday.

"Quarantine if they're exposed. To covert 19. So if they choose to quarantine, they have to use their own sick time. So there's a teacher. Her name is Tina's decent Beck. I said, I feel like the communication and transparency and support that we're looking for. We haven't necessarily received that. So she's quitting her job after 10 years with the district, saying she doesn't feel safe or supported So in an email sent to staff members, new policy states this here's the new policy in Cave Creek. If as an essential employees, you were potentially exposed within 6 Ft. Oh person with covert 19. For a cumulative total of 15 minutes arm or over a 24 hours period or had physical contact with the person would cove in 19, and you did not have any symptoms. You may choose to review you. May I says chose, but it means choose to remain at work. The co president of the Cave Creek Education Association. So the CEO and the A and the N E. A. And the M E. A. And the Chandler Thies air all the teachers associations associated with red Fred Um Said. The new policy puts educators between a rock and hard place if you're sick, and you're sick time has already gone. Then what do you do? You take days off. You do what everybody else on the planet does. My brother is a cop I've talked about my brother before. Doesn't live in Arizona, but lives in Florida when my brother was forced to quarantine which he was guess what the police department made him do use his sick days. Um, I would imagine if I'm stuck in quarantine from here. I'm gonna have to use my sick days and I'll tell you something else. I've worked in the construction industry most of my life and for a long time I didn't get sick days. And if you did, it was maybe two or three a year. So that's changed quite a bit. But there are industries and their companies out there they can't afford there are there are employees any sick days? This is the problem with No matter how good you have it. It's always bad. Everybody on the planet that I know of, and Let's go a step further, Maybe, just maybe if teachers weren't working behind the scenes, whether it's the Cave Creek Educators Association, the Chandler Educators Association or any other teachers organization, Maybe if you weren't organizing sick outs with your sick days, maybe if you weren't pretending to be sick in protest, Maybe you'd have sick days that you could use So it's a two way street. You can't use your sick days as a weapon as a political weapon and then get upset When someone says Listen, you wanna You wanna quarantine use your sick days? You play fast and loose with your sick days. Anytime you see fit, you want to make a political statement with your sick days. That's a perfectly acceptable thing for you to do, even though it violate your contract, even though you know it violates the rules and you could be fired for it. You do it knowing they're not gonna fire you because there's a teacher shortage. These are the funny little political games that on their surface looks like, wasn't that a shame that they have to use their sick days? That's terrible. If they want a quarantine, and they don't feel safe, they should be able to They are using their sick days Now I'm not saying her specifically the teacher associations are using sick days as weapons with sick outs. They did it in 18 when they got their pay raise, and they're doing it again now. Scottsdale had five schools closed right after Thanksgiving. All in one day. The plans for the East Valley to do it have been have been already documented. We've got video messaging. I've got audio. I've got of the messages from their message boards with their blatantly talking about sick outs. Isn't it funny that they can use they can take their sick days. And they can use them when they're not sick to make a political statement, and that is perfectly acceptable to them. But when Cave Creek says, Hey, if you're legitimately concerned, use your sick days. Oh, my gosh, You can't make me do that. I quit. She will quit her job knowing that she will go find a job in a friendly school district. What I mean by friendly is one of them that caters to the teachers, unions, demands and wishes. Cave Creek apparently isn't And so this is how it's going to go. You want to know why so many parents are pulling their Children out of public schools and taking them to charter schools. You want to know why there is a big push for a voucher program with your tax dollars where you can apply the tax dollars you spend for schools, and you can apply that money to private schools. And the tuition at a private school. You want to know why they've become immensely popular. These neighborhoods, schools home schooling. It's because parents that are finally fed up with being told what their Children are going to do by the teachers. Unions are fighting back with the dollars. It's one of the reasons why teachers unions hate school choice. They don't care what school you're student goes to. But if you're registered in that district, they want the money in that district, so they control the dollars. If your students see isn't it but isn't in that seat. They don't care, but they certainly want to control the dollars. They realize that when enrollments down, so are so is funding and they're nervous about that. They're also nervous about standardized testing. Not because your kids are falling so far behind, But because dollars in the classroom come from standardized test scores, and they know that students are doing so poorly right now in online learning, which is going to be blamed on the parents down the road, by the way. But But online learning is teaching kids so poorly overall that they can't pass the standardized tests and they're going to be losing millions of dollars in funding for the public schools. That's what's happening. So when the governor said, we won't be funding empty seats, there are parents that are voting with their feet right now. And if you're in a district that's refused to open up students by the by the dozens are going to other districts where classrooms are opened up. Where classroom availability is there. It's a shame what's happening here is a shame, but there are some parents who are not going to take this and are fighting back and I got to respect it. If the teacher wants to quarantine you with everybody else, and every other industry has to do use their sick days. Cops have to do it. Other people have to do it. Why shouldn't you What makes teachers the on Lee Group here that is so adversely affected by affected by covert 19. All the rules get thrown out the window for them. And anybody who says this is me hating on teachers? It isn't I'm talking about the teachers unions. Specifically the ones that want to make the rules and when they can't they throw a fit.

"Calls. They had horrible. Charlie. Fred joins us on the program. Hi, Fred. Right down through Good morning, folks. Thanks for taking my call. I've got an ongoing hammering problem and predominantly, it's the just the cold side of the washer. I went and I got the suit chief. And put it on there, and it worked for a while. It seemed like and start hammering again. So I went and bought another brand. I put it on there, and it's the same thing. I think this is worse than the new teeth. Do you think any of those things have to be vertical or horizontal? Or, you know, not doing wrong? They normally have to be there called Air chambers. And the whole idea is that you compress the air in this youth is the hammering. This Illinois shuts it off real quick. It compresses the air. Even Mohr. The problem is, is that a Rh under pressure is absorbed by the water and over a period of time. Unless they've got a bladder in him, And I can't remember the Sioux chief has those or not. If it has a bladder in, it's still isolates the air chamber like it would a pressure tank. But they fill up with water and they don't work anymore. So the life of those my experience has been anywhere from three months to a year. On the long side, we used to have to put him on the top of every shower. In every bathtub, and we just call them Eric Chambers, and they're supposed to be dead air, But the plumbers all knew that they'd fill up with water because of the air just dissolves into the water. But you don't think that the one that looks like the I don't know, you know, it looks like a little Oh, to Carter. If it's just a Rh, it will fill up with water. If it's air, a bladder and a and a spring has got half a chance would think that's Okay, It's got the cargo in the top. I assume that's a piston in there, that that's what we that's what we think. But we don't know. I tell you what Since you replaced it If you haven't thrown it away, Cut it open with a hacksaw. Split it up and see what you've got on the inside. Okay, so I replaced it. It's still doing it. Do you have any? You know what? I gotta tell you, friend. Little water Hammer in the house makes me feel alive. Well, it just makes me feel like You know, I would get some cedars up than my home is alive, Go down to the hardware store and get some cedar shims and then have your walk your wife or somebody's cycle. That washing machine and you go downstairs and see where the water hammer is. And what you what water Hammer comes from is the distance between the pipe and the pipe hanger and it just it just rattles in there. So with some cedar Shim just tapping him in you eliminate that. You know, I found that out one time when I was a C. I had bought a house when I was 18. I was remodeling it, So he's probably 19 like that. And I took Ah. To the pipe hangers. The two screw ones, not the not, the loop will understand. And I fixed that to the bottom of Of the floor. Joyce in the crawl space didn't fix the problem. Well, there was a problem. I was just doing a remodel, but every time the hot water Would hit that line the whole house every Joyce would crack because I had that thing so rigidly attached to the to the floor joyous instead of you in the loop hangar where it could move around a lot. Sorry. That's how that's how you learn, right. Well, Fred, um, try to try to tighten down the water lines as best you can. And then next time you replace it.
