CDC is not mandating that school's re open These recommendations simply provides schools a long needed road map for how to do so safely under different levels of disease in the community. We also know that some schools are already providing in person instruction, and we want them to be able to continue to do this.

The limiting factor is vaccine supply, which remains finite. But we have strong visibility now a way through to the end of March into April, and I'm confident we'll hit the targets a big target. We're doubling the rate for most in the next 10 11 weeks to what we've done in the previous 10 11 weeks because we've got to get to 32 million people who have had At least one days, and of course, within that, those who would be do their second dose.

schools she suspects some of these kids that were struggling even before Kobe people are always been disconnected we just couldn't see before we I think we call the shells were all the potholes are well all the cracks were heroes there are you going to do school Richman roasted some kids out of bed during her ten AM home visits they worry about their social and emotional well being their mental health especially for the kids who are losing connections and so my biggest fear is losing that connection and then next year not being able to bring them back in Sacramento has two and a half more months to link hundreds of school kids back up with former learning before September for the California report I'm Pauline bart Aloni in Sacramento what will schools look like when they re open this fall will superintendents around the state are grappling with that now they're figuring out how to keep kids learning while getting a crash course in logistics Robert Nelson is the superintendent of the Fresno unified school district he joins us now how are you thank you for asking what are you telling parents right now about when students in Fred Fresno unified can go back to school and what will it look like when they do go back so actually we've been pursuing a survey for asking parents kind of their orientation for what they hope to see happen when their kids are coming back we anticipate anywhere from twenty five to thirty percent of our families are gonna want to have a digital solution it looks like just about seventy percent of our families really are he garnered there could come back in some form that being said by Stacy Esterly order any hours and we recognize that all of the restrictions that we put in place for safety none of them are perfect but we're hoping that collector who has held Halliday of them taken together in the aggregate provides enough space for our kids to be safe and secure whether our school campuses so you anticipate back to school for those who want in in September August seventeenth is actually the date upon which we've got I would not move that need also it as even as early as August seventeenth what worries you most about bringing kids back because in Fresno if the flattening of the curve has not happened to the extent that it has in some of the other parts of the state I think early we were really successful and flattening the curve and of late when researching women remain on our not saying that there are curbs lighting is fast I think I didn't present with that and making sure that we're not haphazard reckless about how are kids response here what is asked of them I think we're gonna have issues with our staff in terms of their relative level of security and safety we are getting PP delivered at that by the governor's provided some of that and we anticipate having adequate PP in place for people to be able to do that but some of our staff members are in Kobe is restricted categories and providing productive ways for them to serve and support kids in a distance learning models really comes back and trying to get kids and teachers and staff members appropriately assigned as as really complex and you have to do in a lifetime so there's a lot of moving parts you have to make some really difficult decisions like for example also this is not a blast at six feet you can basically put nine kids on a bus what do you do with it tends to get more dangerous a lady on the street corner in the city of Fresno out of busy traffic day or is it better to put you on the back like what you're about maybe getting levels of breast cancer I think it's crucially important our parents know what they're getting into by virtue of bringing kids back there part of the economy getting batters kids having schooling so that families can get back to work and see you know needing to live their lives with some degree of normalcy one thing this has really shown is that schools play a really important role in the fabric of what constitutes normalcy in this setting all right superintendent thank you so much all right you have a great day finally this morning seniors at UCLA are graduating today the university's one hundredth graduating class will don their caps and gowns virtually because of the covert nineteen pandemic soon to be graduate Norbu ZD recorded this audio memo for us with some

twenty twenty and instead of that my friends started moving away and now it just feels like instead of port ending on a boom we're just fizzing out slowly and graduation is bringing with it just a greater sense of uncertainty than we normally feel and it's just okay let ourselves feel that uncertainty and I think that despite everything I still made the most of my last quarter relations to.

Dr city Philadelphia there was one hundred fifty four killings and six hundred and thirty one victims of gun violence in just the first six months of twenty nineteen not to mention the thousands of family members or friends who was affected by the death of injury of a loved one a gun violence. this. Dr guns to the rise of a hundred and two children and young adults in Philadelphia just in one year. this is why it is critical that the Senate. press the issue as our chairman has indicated and what he is. this is a public health issue. I recently did a story about this title called shot in forgot. which I think if you want to read. partly in response to this story center the case in our in our dues the resource for victims of gun violence that we have sixty two co sponsors in the house and I encourage all members to sign on we must make sure the victims get the help they need so doctor why is it imperative that we provide resources for those affected by gun violence. because they're suffering. people who have been shot face long term physical and psychological disability. the people around them face drama as we've heard and are impaired in their social and emotional lives entire communities are adversely affected I would argue there's a moral imperative that we would provide those resources let me double down I think there is a moral imperative that we provide support for research there is no such thing as intervening effectively with a complex health problem without understanding it we don't sidelined when we go after breast cancer we don't fly blind when we go after your heart disease or motor vehicle injuries but we are asking ourselves to fly blind when it comes to intervening in preventing firearm violence that's just wrong. I thank you Mister chairman for the time a year back to it again I want to thank the chairwoman of the appropriate because it was under her leadership we get the fifty million for the purpose of the CDC thank you thank you very much Mister clay to recognize requirements meeting of the house gun violence prevention task force on Capitol Hill thank you so much Mister chairman let me start by saying that since April of this year I I'm represent Saint Louis Missouri in we are quickly becoming known as the murder capital of America and since April more than a dozen teenagers and children between the ages of two and seventeen have been killed because of our own so let me start. would with the colonel I heard you mention that it made sense for HR eight to pass through the Senate get to the president's desk as well as the Charlotte I mean the the Charlotte Lupo let me let me ask you. I would be helpful if local governments could determine their own final. regulations it instead of being dictated to by the state that their respective state right now forty three states limit local governments from passing more stranger firearms regulations there and then what is allowed by the state let me can I hear your opinion on it do you think local government would be a good place to start. yes I agree local government is a great place to start in Fairfax county's local leaders have already started that for years and I'll see get past their General Assembly in Richmond is an obstacle obviously Virginia is a gun right state like many other states but when we talk about the issues in the local level of these mass tragedies or individual tragedies and we do the psychological autopsy if you will of the person that inflicted the violence of. or a lack in legislation to prevent those we know what these psychological autopsies are homicide investigations reveal to us and when I talk to my peers across this country through major city chiefs especially our ability to also on the national effort report. the track in of firearms such as transfers the loss or theft of firearms. it's not consistent I sit on the chair of the FBI's national incident based reporting system and on an annual basis we wrestle with that ability on a national level to the track all of this so yes we need to take local action at the same time because we're not getting the federal action on the on on the issue of open Kerry and I'm not sure what Virginia's laws are there but. I mean do you ever get report citizens calling in and saying Hey I saw somebody a scrap with a an assault rifle Kaelin in open ours someone was carrying it a a saddle. okay do you ever get that and and and don't you know the callers find that alone. what we get those calls all the time in Fairfax county Virginia sort of my colleagues in Virginia it's open carry state of the key is to train your officers and your call takers understand to get as much tactical information as possible because that too is a tragedy waiting to happen because of our officers and dispatchers not trying to get the information we could on fortunately take the wrong action it's difficult it creates fear in the community I can imagine this German my term as a thank you very much Mr cost you recognize. thank you very much Sir chairman for your leadership in this important on hearing and the committee along with the speaker for her comments earlier. during the hearing I am I want the cultures of the victims rights caucus and the victim's rights caucus of bipartisan effort here for years I deals with the effects of gun violence across America and clearly what this committee is trying to do is not only pass meaningful legislation in Congress but to shed any light and to try to coordinate a strategy that. involves all of our our society in America because this is an epidemic yesterday Fresno high student arrested for cute might shoot up a school later post. police arrested sixteen year old Fresno high school student Tuesday after the teen allegedly shared an Instagram post about shooting up the school school administrator and alerted authorities to the post while police say it was a photo of a student with a caption. quotes felt cute Mike should up the school later. officers found the stood on campus around six fifteen yesterday the king was arrested on suspicion of making criminal threats last year I co sponsored effort with local law enforcement agencies Fresno unified school district to provide updated school safety plans we know about students now looking for bullet proof backpacks we also do the same in Merced with local law enforcement agencies and school administrators and school groups this is part of an overall effort yesterday in the Merced another community represent U.

that it was actually too much hair because I've gotten individual parades and so they said it was too much hair but it couldn't possibly be held back what does it mean too much hair okay I'll go because I had I mean I got them with extension and so they said it was too much hair that I couldn't possibly in out they couldn't be tied back well enough it was the point was that it was affecting your work or they just didn't like the way it looked and they apparently and this is it this is a manager that I had gotten in trouble so I apparently I don't know there was some sort of okay so what what was the outcome the outcome of that is take a break out okay so now you know as soon as a black individual do you feel that this law is needed I do feel that does this live needed I think that it will give people a chance to be able to wear their hair how they want to whether you and whether a team ever had an issue with somebody saying you have to wear certain way or for for me I always feel like even though it nobody says that I have to do certain things I feel like okay I am a nurse I have to wear my hair certain styles I can't wear it just back in a ponytail with it all to stay out bad **** that's not okay but would you agree that there might even be times in nursing that your hair could get in the way but probably the if it does then you do something about it but I want to put words in your mouth but what I'm saying is that if I pull it all back really tried and then have it posted net now for in the back that's getting in my way since I know well but still I feel like that's probably not okay no shouldn't have to feel that way no I agree I mean like I said earlier if your hair is not actively involved in endangering you or your co workers you should be able to do basically what you want to do right in the one thing I really don't understand is this this problem with shaved heads I mean that's in this too I mean are you kidding me share a dance you got too much here now you're somebody over here that I have any here at all but that's still a problem but it makes it look like a sob now is that the deal I gash with stupid I I don't disagree with you but a lot of people feel intimidated that's weird Allentown a cut you loose I gotta get news but I kind of thought maybe on this when I hear from you on the call is standing by as we look at you know California being the first in the nation to have a state protecting black people from natural hair discrimination and even there's been discrimination because summer shaving their heads I don't get that one at

"It's the first time that they've ever been interviewed potential job for a potential job. But also viewing just for practice. And they're getting great feedback. Good. So they were very excited when they were coming out from their interviews and really happy that they stepped forward and took this experience upon them, the they put together resumes and all of that stuff. So great. So they practiced at school put together letters of intent and resumes. Carried those in with them. And then sat answer it interviews questions that are manufacturing partners would ask any employee that they were interviewing for a job fantastic. We're talking with Sally Fowler executive officer college and career readiness at Fresno unified school district college and career readiness often a conversation will arise especially on Appleton's program about preparing oneself for the professional workplace. And a lot of times college may not be in the plans, and may not be necessary in some certain circumstances in particular manufacturer. Absolutely. So we have students that are in career pathways at their high school, and they're. While they're learning. They're taking dual enrollment classes along with that. So they're getting high school credit plus college credit, we've aligned our curriculum with our strong partner, which is a Fresno City College central community college district the students also earned certifications as they go through their program. But our idea in Fresno unified, if support all kids, so we want them to have a choice. So we actually give them an ADA g curriculum for all of our students. We help them through. So that even if they're in a career pathway, they exit that pathway with Eiji college curriculum, and with the skills and also the knowledge from their courses. So that they could have a choice they could go and to college they could go into further certification. They could go right to work. They could go off to a UC. So they are prepared to do that students have choices. So we want them to make a choice that's meaningful for them. But they have to have the knowledge to be able to make choices. So we want to expose them to a broad sense of curriculum at a broad. Sense of skills and competencies each of our courses also cover those kinds of soft skills that employers are looking with with the soft skill things like communication the ability to use technology. The ability to function is part of a team and participate effectively to communicate with adults, many of our students spend their days, just with your peer groups. So they actually talk to each other. And they're not just buried their faces phone for hours of that. Sometimes that involves face-to-face. But yes, you're absolutely right. Our kids use technology for a variety of functions. They're sitting with a little tablet typing out of paper that they then send to a printer. And you know, we look at that and say, how can you actually type that paper without a keyboard? But for kids technology has been part of their life since their birth for someone with Kirk shirt and about the very situation. It's something that he and I are just baffled by at our age. For you. I mean, you've been in the education industry for thirty plus years. Now you've seen it from inception to what it is today. The technology influence on kids and their ability in Nate. Ability for a young person to navigate new technology at the drop of the hat. Fascinates me. I find it amazing because my kids are ages ten and twelve now, and they grew up with it. They're very comfortable. It's amazing with new technology with new you put them in front of a sheen. They have a better sense. And a better intuition on what to do with that? So when we have our college partners come in. And they might be demonstrating on some of our equipment. They're fascinated by how comfortable kids are just immediately picking it up. And I saw some of the displays I believe it was Hoover. And I can't remember the other schools that were over there in that corner. But they had some amazing lake some robotics stuff going on what using CNC machinery machinery. So that's that laser cutting. So what they're doing with metal what they're doing with wood? So you saw some examples of that over in their booths. Yes. Yes. It's fascinating. So I know when we start talking about education, and how Fresno unified is implementing the new technology that things are going into three D printing a robotics. Is that something that that Fresno unified is kind of at least at least discussing if not implementing fully fully embracing that we actually have a CTE continuum that begins in preschool introducing some engineering concepts in the first and second grade, we offer a summer enrichment program to all kids that involves robotics. So starting at that young age. We're introducing them into robotics and technology. It's a a feel for very stem based at leads all the way through up to twelfth grade. So when a kid exits they've done everything that we possibly can to prepare them around. We have a graduate profile and that graduate profile centers on the soft skills about how they're integrated into the classroom. So even at young ages. Teachers are using teaming they are giving their kids jobs in the classroom. So that they're learning skills and responsibility. These the things that we want for our young people to be able to graduate and compete with adults when they're when they're exiting high school. Talking about competing with adults someday, you might be up for a job against your mom or dad. Yes. Because of the way the world is changing when it comes to the business world. I mean. The parental involvement. These days, it's always a question. Mark anywhere. You are not only in America. But in the world parental involvement in a kid's education if not more important just as important as in the classroom. I would say, and when it comes to these new technologies, and the stem, and the is that something that the parents are adapting to I believe that they are we we have a system in front of the unified where we a parent can see their students grades and assignments through tax, right? So most of our parents all have cell phones, and we can push out to them information. They can also come back in through the parent portal, look at how their students doing communicate with the teacher. Most adults are comfortable with with texting. And with that kind of technology. Dunkin polytechnical in partnership with Fresno City College. We offer some courses in the evening, and we've had a father and son a mother and a daughter come to those classes together over into. So offering our parents opportunities are adult school has CTE courses fully aligned with employment back into our school district. Any idea of any possibility of making something like important as as coding or engineering a part of the mandatory curriculum as opposed to an elective? Well, I think coating is a skill that you can begin at a very young age and is applicable to all industries all industry. Yeah. So I don't know how I e unified would where we would fit that as part of a mandatory curriculum. Science has a has changed the state came out with new science standards in GS s. And we've aligned those standards to our CTE courses as well..

We're going to be talking with south Sally Fowler. She is the executive officer of college and career readiness at Fresno unified school district. So really happy to talk with her. She's a fantastic lady. She's a Spitfire mansion just met her about an hour and a half ago, and she is fun to talk with. So we'll hear about what the students are up to Fresno unified is doing to help prepare those kids those young men and women for the workforce, especially right here in Fresno in the central valley. All right. Let's head east across over the Sierra for a moment, shall we to our good friends in Las Vegas, Nevada. Dateline simcity, the Las Vegas city council last. And I don't know if you saw this is interesting. Might be a wave of the future. I don't know. But last night, the Las Vegas city council voted four to one to approve marijuana lounges marijuana lounges in Las Vegas. The first town in the country. I believe to do this basically what they are setting up. Now, if you've ever been to Amsterdam, and I've been twice, and it's an awesome city, smells, kind of funny due to a couple of reasons. One the canals but to the aroma. Or stench whichever you prefer of marijuana. It's everywhere. But that's basically what the city of Las Vegas has done with this vote last night dispensary owners were all for this thing in Vegas. Now, it will allow the city of Las Vegas to create business license category and regulations for marijuana lounge within the city limits. The lounges would be in a place where people could use marijuana products of all sorts, not just smoke. I guess you could do the injustice as well. But under the Bill for the first year only established dispensaries could get a license for a for a marijuana lounge. So where you buy your pot, then the what's going to happen is you could now legally toke up right there in the dispensary with the cops. Can't do anything about it. It's interesting because you know, whatever, you think of Las Vegas, you want to call it sin city, you want to call it, whatever it is in your mind. The facts are the facts, and the fact is is that city does huge business it came from nothing a desert in the middle of a desert, and it is today, a pretty amazing.

"A brand new Fresno city councilman his name is somewhat known. He was involved with the was the CIO. I believe of the Fresno unified school district prior. We'll let him explain that. Is he sort of introduces himself to you the Cam J audience, and that is Miguel Arias who is now at Fresno city councilman making a little bit of news lately. Mckell welcome Cam. Jay good. Thank you. Appreciate the invitation you, and I met is you pointed out because I forgotten well not about that. But the water March a million years we first met about ten years ago this week when you were helping lead the March for water from the big March from two reservoirs, and by Los Daniels, and actually my family, and I joined you on that March between mendota and far ball at that time. I was working in the west side of the Fresno county organizing the food relief efforts for the farm workers have been unemployed because of the significant water drought and the like of good policy has it been ten years then ten years it was actually April fourteenth of twenty nineteen. Of two thousand nine hundred faith and getting old. Yeah. Yeah. We actually had a really good conversation me you and mayor Alain artery also joined us. It was the first time in history that we saw urban leaders in the city of Fresno. Alongside a rural community residents and leaders and farm workers and farmers on the same page asking for water security because of the economic engine that it provides as I said, then I said now I said to you before we jump on the air, and you agreed. This wasn't even a political deal. This was a right or wrong deal. And you were there or you weren't those that weren't looked pretty bad. Yeah. It was a crisis. It was a crisis that resulted in thousands of people being off work for minds. I remember when I when I got back from Washington DC to help on the defense efforts. We were heading out canned food from China that was spoiled to these workers had we're waiting hours and hours in line. I and basic food some fury, adding your background your Fresno unified for a while. Right. Yes. I actually after I returned from Washington DC the food relief efforts because at the water drought. I went to city hall for about a year. And then I was recruited to Fresno fighter help try and turn around the district. So I spent about eleven years at Fresno unified. What did you do in DC? I actually work as a legislative assistant over a series of legislation agriculture business education defense military spending. For congressman Cal Dooley. Okay. Cool. Yeah. So I spent about three to four years with a congressman duly here in Fresno and DC now's a city councilman. Do you envision yourself in a particular role? I mean where where do you fit in as a councilman? You know, it's interesting that in the last few days, there's been a lot of labels throw. Now, progressive I've been hearing liberal culture wars, all this, you know, silly labels. What you'll see is in my tenure city council in the last three months. I have voted exactly the same as council. Remember Cape Redfield on every single vote with council member Steve wrandell, we've different in one boat, which was them recent panhandling ordinance that Gary Brenner field at myself voted against. So it's it's at the local level. I don't think it's about. Political labels or parties, it's about solving everyday issues that we are no exist broken sidewalks. Broken roads trees that are overgrown and not trimmed its what people care about when they look outside their window. How would you describe your own personality? I would say I think people who've worked with me for years will tell you that. I do my homework. Carly prepared. I while studied, and I'm very clear about the objectives that we have to compass though, I don't spend a lot of time fighting over things that are not going to move any which way. So I heard your description earlier of me, and it wouldn't mind. Yeah. It's the same description that has been used to describe Brooke Ashton Terry sporadic Gabriel field. Definitely brenda. Right. So I say the words that were expanded by you from some your new colleagues at city hall and some of the old colleagues unified. You're you're a bully. It's your wire the highway, and that can certainly some of the other names that you mentioned. But would you respond to that? Those are my words. Yeah. You know, what's interesting is that those are all from individuals. So actually don't know me quite well and having worked with me, it's typically folks from a distance and folks who like to exchange social media tweets and posts, but who haven't actually sat down. And work with us. And some of that is just political rhetoric. I mean at the same time that that counselor Butterfield suggesting that I'm a social Justice warrior. He's asking me to co-sponsor an ordinance on panhandling. So I think people understand that. That's just unfortunately, the modern day politics. They say a lot of things are trying to track some kind of reaction from their respective base. But at the end of day, it'd be look at my track record I helped turnaround school in mendota as a coach at the school board. President I helped in around Brazil unified in my tenure, I've I've helped pass a billion dollars for new schools in college campuses everywhere. I've been I've been promoted I've missed successful in doing work with community. And it's never been a one sided conversation for me. I have as many supporters in labor as I do in the Republican party and a decline estate. Okay. We'll buy your own description. It sounds wonderful your coalition builder. You wanna work with the other side? Yet, you've publicly have referred to the mayor is weak. There's oversight the financial commitments that we make our follow through and whether or not we ought to be able to talk about them, honestly and openly. Okay. So you you don't believe the mayor's week? No. I actually think he's a pretty good guy. So I have a good relationship with him. I think you'll see with the mayor and other council members. When all this rhetoric is put aside we get along just fine. And we have some very good conversations. I also think he's an interesting situation. Trying to move city that's rapidly growing and to this day, we cannot afford public safety and public infrastructure. You are very quick and your colleagues to dismiss a plan that he offered for this this Espy one money to be divvied up throughout the district's that was put together by the traffic engineers, etcetera etcetera. You said it was there's just not going to happen. What was wrong with it? Actually. I think you're referring to my colleague says sparce who said it was dead upon arrival. Okay. It's still Representative of the group that you're you're well, we will we did is we received a marriage proposal at five o'clock on Friday. We spend all week in review in and keep in mind, we've had conversations with the mayor staff with the traffic engineers for three months now about these developing proposals. So we're fully aware of what they were proposing. And we said then that we have to find a comprehensive approach to deal with the infrastructure. That's clearly broken and is far more broken in parts of town than in other parts of town. And will we asked for was a plan that ensured everyone got basic infrastructure. No matter where they lived that they had sidewalks. They had streets and bike lanes near schools it respective of of where you live in Fresno, your school children should be able to walk to school without having to be on the road are elderly and disabled should be able to use the sidewalks and not a dirt walkway or not have to go on the roadway. And frankly, you know, Ray our city was annexed and incorporated eighteen eighty five. We have neighborhoods that are more than a hundred years old in a south part of Fresno. The needs are dramatically different in some neighborhoods than they are another's to the credit of a lot of leaders in Fresno. The north part of the city and some in the southeast there were master planned. They were built from the beginning. With whites roads bike lanes and sidewalks that wasn't the case in a lot of the older parts of the city. The way that the issue has been portrayed though. And you correct me if I'm wrong, we'll correctly the sentiment behind the statement that if you give the impression it has been said, you're giving impression you and your colleagues that you want all the money to go into your areas all of it, and none of it to go northeast northwest. Absolutely. If you read our proposal Ray, our proposal is pretty simple, we ask and keep in mind. This proposal is incomplete alignment with the city's general plan and the actor has meditation pine that our mayor voted and approved on years ago. So our proposal actually aligns perfectly with with it. And with the proposal simply says is instead of doing this on a one year basis determining what road gift fixed and one sidewalks get fixed annually, that's stopped a five year plan. So we know what projects that take longer are going to get funded and when they're going to be fixed. Let's prioritize sidewalks bike lanes around schools and make sure that our seniors and our school student can. Walk. I have half a dozen schools that don't have any sidewalks leading up to them. Let's also prioritize the worst roads to make sure that those get rebuilt and maintained. And let's look at the pre nine thousand nine hundred neighborhoods because pre nine thousand nine neighborhoods rate. Don't have a facility districts where they generate additional revenue to maintain their neighborhood roads. They rely simply on the general fund, and it's also require resin input. The guests has dollars. Everybody pays for residents to have a say on whether they want this treat fix or these sidewalks improved and what the timeliness, and lastly, let's make sure that local residents benefit from the jobs that we're going to be producing. This funding source is just one of five funding areas that the city has to be able to fix and improve streets in our city, and it's going to be ongoing. So we want to do is take a comprehensive approach have been able to fix historical obstacles the marriage proposal on the. The face of suggests that we should divide the pike essentially equally. Our city is not equally the same condition. We have bottlenecks on Clinton McKinley Ashton Shaw was the night where residents can get there. They generate significant mount pollution. We have Rosen south Fresno that require people to improve their suspensions extends our tires more frequently because the conditions are far worse. More importantly, we still have neighborhoods that were annexed into the city a hundred years ago that don't have sidewalks. They're going to take a break Miguel. Arias new to the Fresno city councils in the camp j studios with us talking about this SP one the controversy. Maybe this a on the teapot. Maybe it's not. But how to spend this money? It's not a big amount of money. We're talking about a total of you know, funds from SP one and local funds at twenty two million on a six hundred million dollar program. You know, that's going to be tough to divvy up, and, you know, make everybody happy, but we'll talk more about it after news update. Here's liz.

And the only thing you have to do is expand that the time in the gas to drive out there, and we'll make it worth your while. And we'll talk about some of the big issues. Facing Dale Anderson up there, there's a there's a particular Senate Bill that is could be very detrimental to his operation that we've talked about before we'll talk about it again. It's something that needs to be nipped in the bud or rewritten. It would mean if it passes he's not even able to take his big cats to the vet. He can't take them off the property for any reason. He couldn't take him to creative tile for this. Great educational get together, you know, a week from this Thursday. So lots to talk about with him. We'll do the regular show, but it's gonna be great. So you'll meet Sasha and jazz will feed you some lunch all of us at creative tile a week from this Thursday. Okay. Okay now for the remainder of this hour and the next hour. We're going to be decidedly local we'll be talking about these new split on the city council over the SP one money on where and how to spend a few million on road repairs. The mayor got together his plan. He got together with the typical types of traffic management that traffic engineers at work for the city who would do this type of thing they put the money together in a way that he thought was fair and equitable and workable for these districts, but they were shot down immediately. By this new gang of three that seems to be evolving that doesn't really seem like they liked the mayor all that much. In fact, two of them as Miranda and Miguel Arias who you're about to meet in just a few minutes here both publicly referred to the mayor as weak. Week with this new view of social Justice type of local city council manning that they're doing there is a new term city council manning. So the mayor will also join us in the twelve o'clock hour to respond to all of this. Whereas the plan going now, and you know, where he thinks this is going to wind up now Miguel who seems to be the ringleader. Opposing the mayor on this stuff. Here's the former CIO with Fresno unified school district. He is a member of the state center community college board of trustees. He's people who have worked with him their words, not mine they referred to him as a bully. He's arrogant. They say he's judgmental. Again. Not my words. These are people who have I've talked to in the last twenty four hours who have worked with him in a professional capacity. You can decide after you hear the man I will let him tell the story about who he is. But not only do we have the issues of how are we going to fix the roads? But we've got the other issue a big one of a new police chief and will these individuals who are making themselves known on the council inject themselves into that particular situation with a list of demands. So I mean that that is going to be that's going to be coming up soon that is going to be huge replacing Jerry Dyer. Nobody can replace Jerry. Dr. We're just going to have to start a new with somebody else. The man is a legend as far as I'm concerned. I realize there's still some people out there that don't like him. But he's done a remarkable job a remarkable job. So we've got Miguel Arias in this first our on Jay, what's left of it? And then the mayor at noon and for the final hour. Holy moses. I'm going to have to inject so many things that where would I begin? I wanna talk about something that's being for two as a child recycling ring Mets evolved down on the border during this whole border crisis. This whole push from central Americans to gain access to our country. Now, the department of homeland security Nielsen has been very loud about this ring. And she's also noted with this ring is this uptick in smugglers, human, sparklers smugglers who are now historically more active than any other time before on the border, and these individuals who are human smugglers have come up with more tactics to move illegal aliens in this country. But what is with this child recycling? Ring what what is all about that that'll about I will tell you in detail. If you hang with me today, then back home, again, we're beginning to learn the possibly there's new congressman TJ Cox is a bit of a bad after failing to disclose number of business interests companies during his recent campaign, but he should have legally disclose he's beginning to look a little bit of luck. Brooke, you know, vote Harvard. Boehner harvesting is now legal in the state of California, thanks to governor Brown. So because of that we have been gifted with this individual ousting one of the most honorable congressman from the west coast ever David ballot. Dale, you talk about two different personalities. Wow. But a Fresno bee investigation and good for them found that this guy Cox has five businesses where he's listed as either the director of the owner. He did not report. And why did he feel that necessary to keep this these facts away? From the public during the campaign. Can't do that broke the law. So we'll we'll let you know about that California is also in the news today very quickly. California is wrongly holding up to three hundred thirty one million dollars from a nationwide banking system settlement and the money must be used for its intended purposes. And that was to help those victims. Maybe you that were hit by foreclosures during the most recent recession now Senator Campbell Harris the then now presidential candidate candidate. She cut a deal for this money to be used in a precise way pretty much in line with where the money had to go. But governor Brown took it upon himself to take the money to pay off state housing bonds to pay off debts from state agencies big trouble. And of course, he did that. Of course, you had to cover his own fiscal mismanagement of the state why not? He's not the governor. Now, it's not his problem. So that is going to be a problem for the state. That's for sure also under the category of California. You can't do that the supreme court upholding a lower court decision that the state's monetary bail system is constitutional. If is within the framework of constitutional law, and legal so getting rid of California. You can't do that. You can't do that. We're going to have a big segment on that coming up on Friday. But time allowing I can explain a little bit today. Also, if I have the time, and then we'll go to break, and we'll bring the gallon here. High-capacity, ammo, magazines, and the state band, and then a judge tosses that out California, you can't do that. So it looks like shipments of high capacity ammo MAGS are on their way to the state for the first time in a long time so much to do in our number three today on the Appleton program from the city council Miguel Arias in just a few minutes, you're going to want to stay there. The mayor coming in at noon..
