"Know that there was a lot of lives that was gone and people were just coming together. I saw people that I write the ferries every day. With that. I've finally actually hugged and held. Jessica do long. Where were the boats taking people? When they brought them off of the battery and the World Trade Center area anywhere they could go? Um, so there were boats taking people to New Jersey and certainly the ferry operators did their best to take advantage of the infrastructure that they had on. On land to be able to disembark people quickly, so we'll call that you have to not only get people onto the boat safely, but you also need to have a gangway or some other mechanism for getting them off safely. And so which votes could safely do that? Where was determined by their their structure? So there were, um Passenger designed boats that went to New Jersey but then had to borrow gangways and set them up in odd ways. You know, through the loading dock door, um kind of situation. There was all of this improvisation that happened. At one point there was a on the Jersey side, there was a tugboat who was offloading. Offloading passengers over a ladder that was like set up vertically, so people were climbing like crawling across the ladder one by one and spirit, cruise captain Came on and said, Look, get these people onto my boat, and I will also them way faster right now. You're just hogging this space. And so they collaborated in in a some salty language was used, but they didn't work together. Um, to, uh, to offload people in a more efficient way. So New Jersey was one very common destination. Um, and another, uh, there were NYPD boats who offloaded passengers. In Brooklyn because that's where their harbor unit facilities were, so they knew they could get people on and off safely. There. People went to Long Island. Um one later in the day, Somebody said, I need to get to the airport because I guess they thought they were going to get out of town. And so, uh, tugboat actually dropped them off as close to the airport is they could get So anywhere that people wanted to go, and there were makeshift systems like makeshift ferry services that were established aboard tugboats. So the crews of tugboats, um used bed sheets to and and painted them to say Hoboken or, you know some other destination. So that people could get somewhere closer to where they wanted to be. Because, remember, and this is something that I think so much about these days that when bad things happen, you want to go home. You want to go home, right? You want to just be in a safe place, and for some people home was right there. And so that was actually one of the Mariners. Um, lived right in Gateway Plaza, which is overlooking North Cove, right right in that area. And he ended up rescuing passengers and transporting fire department personnel and he talked about you know, it was, like, two o'clock in the morning or whatever. And he finally was back in north coast where he had started that day, and, um, and he knew his apartment wasn't possible. Um, and so he Just sat there in the boat. The boat, you know, which is where he worked. It wasn't his boat. Um, and he just sat there and opened a beer and looked at the red glow. Just not knowing what to do next. Um But if you had a choice to go home, you would want to do that. And so people did their best to. Yes. Evacuate people from danger. Um, but also to get them as close to home as they could at 9 59 that morning. The South tower collapsed was 93 minutes after that first attack. Um, uh and we have another piece of video.

I Yes, I had it impacted me so so much I used to live in Left right building, which is South End Avenue, which is right right in front of the World Trade Center, and that's where I lived and at the time I got a call from a colleague here that worked with me and said, Turn on the television about six a.m. in the morning. I turned it on, and I was just 68 ID. I couldn't go to work my. Then I started frantically calling because my relatives, my sister, my my nephew, my nieces. Everybody is in Manhattan, New York, and I found out late to my my nephew. He was coming from Brooklyn into the city to go to work. And they debris. Everything had come down. That's when the building came down. He had to jump into the Hudson River. Know how this swim? Yes. Didn't know how to swim, and they were both.

"68 Friday each day. Just to Ted colored near the water walking shot 41. It's 40 in Milwaukee and Wtmj. Round broke last weekend. The couture it's finally under construction of big, huge apartment complex could be hoping to a transit station for the hop, the light rail through downtown Milwaukee and so much more, But now the lakefront Gateway Plaza, which we talked about last week, while it's still not quite a done deal, Joining US life, The Journal Sentinel's time taken on WTMJ morning time. Morning. So Yeah, I thought that this week from Gateway Plaza that was going to tie up the mess that is the Lincoln Memorial Drive confluence with the interstate and all that on the South end southeast end of downtown. I thought that was all said and done, but it's really not this. We got to dot the I's and crossing teased on this thing, right? Right? Well, most importantly, they need to raise the money when it was first introduced in the fall of 2015 and Boy doesn't that seem like a long time ago nearly six years ago. It was estimated that was going to cost around 28 million later updated to maybe 30 million, But who knows they have a design concept, they would still need to come up with a final plan. Really do the engineering on it to refine those those cost estimates And of course, construction costs have escalated the significantly since then. I'm sorry time I'm looking at your article and some of the renderings. I know exactly where this is. Why can I not visual lies where this is. I think it's hard for people to visualize because It's touching indistinguishable spot right now. For all the attractions, we haven't a lakefront. This particular spot doesn't really stand out it Z. He's the grasses and trees on it, basically, and I think there might be an above ground utility box as well. And of course, that would that would have to be relocated. You'd have to have toe removed the trees in which you get off course. What appears to be this really, really nice Parker. Real true gathering spot. Not unlike, say, Millennial Park in Chicago on a much smaller scale, of course. Energy was saying in the exactly remarks. Idea is to come up with a way to better unify the lakefront with downtown, but they don't want all this would be the pedestrian bridge that would span like a memorial drive between the plaza. And the finally under construction couture high rise Uh, all your listeners know those who have ever walked to Meyer Festival Park for any of them have seen what it's like to get across Lincoln Memorial drive down there, and it's a mess, and we need to have a more pedestrian friendly environment. Some of the work that was done to accomplish that night, especially were even done. Clyde born Was extended across the Lincoln Memorial Drive platforms also started pretty attractive Boulevard. But now this is really the final piece needed to make that happen. What else? Tom is going to be included in this plaza. Obviously, the pedestrian bridge is huge, because if that's not there, you're just gonna be waiting at crosswalks for, like half an hour 45 minutes trying to get across. But what else are they envisioning in terms of putting in this parking in this plaza to make it attractive on days, like summer fest in other stuff down at the lakefront aren't going on. Well, I think probably the big centerpiece is gonna be the water feature and that that can double is Azul Water fountain. Water is sort of a natural attraction for for people, including All you people out there who have young Children and then in the winter, it could double its an ice skating rink. You'll have some attractive lighting to make it to make useful of these names. Bear in mind. This is only about an acre, maybe an acre and a half. So it's It's not like we're creating Central Park here and then tell Manhattan but we are again creating a relatively small gathering spot. And I know, for example, my article, the deputy city development commissioner, said this could be a regional draw. That might be overstating it. I think I don't know that people are gonna be coming to Milwaukee to go to that park. But People coming to Milwaukee who want to see the museum. We wanted to Discovery world who want to see summer test. Park would be one more reason to hang around to linger. And it's just a nice thing to help. Can we have nice things in the one way we have to get? You have to get a buck championship This time? I think we're on the verge. It's a nice thing. But again, the big challenge is how do you raise the perhaps $30 million to make it happen? The city already has about it. Three million committed through through the tip district that helped finance Northwestern Mutual. They could set aside that money help build the bridge, but There's gonna be some foundations. Uh, there's gonna be individual contributors sort of fitted, fit up for money. At a time when you know there are other charitable organizations out there, most notably public museum that he'd raise a lot of money for their capital projects through in a pandemic to boot, the lakefront gateway pleasant time taken to the Journal Sentinel, keeping his eye on that project.

wonderful to see him with his family get on that plane and and get to a place where he's got a chance to survive the hope is there will be more flights to know when the next one goes we are planning on bringing a larger planes so that we can take out more patience and we expect that that will happen in just the next few days were confirming the flight arrangements as we speak and we hope that very soon the second plane can go and that many more planes will follow after may I ask what was on your mind as you watch this plane left off yesterday having worked for so long to to make that happen it was very emotional when we were all in the sign of the terminal and the children were there with their families when we watch the children in their family walk across the tarmac and get on the plane it was a very emotional moment and we knew that the children and their families were headed to Amman and hopefully to a better life there was a cheer from all of us who were standing on the

to recall to members of the city council and if so who should replace them the issues in the election are complicated and so was the ballot K. easy you Scott Cohn reports like so much about Santa Cruz politics these days the recall effort has its roots in the city's housing crisis an issue that came to a head last year in the debate over the so called Ross camp the giant tent city behind the gateway plaza shopping center near downtown I didn't have a contentious city council meeting last February twelfth councilmember Chris crone question to staff proposal to shut down the camp by March fifteenth you can fit you make any commitments to the folks at the camp behind Ross dress for less that we will find them a place by that date councilmember drew Glover's then just weeks into his first term as make I'm gonna make a motion argued for so called transitional encampments allowing the homeless to continue camping but with more control start really taking tangible action on making sure we can solve these problems of the week the Ross camp stayed open until may after a federal judge finally gave the city the go ahead to shut it down Santa Cruz homeowner Carol pull heinous blames the delay on Glover in chrome part of a four three progressive majority on the council we felt like both clover and crown spent a fair amount of time proselytising and grandstanding and rolling out you know solutions to homelessness talking about wage inequality and all kinds of situations and and philosophies that actually weren't going to lead to nuts and bolts here's what we do first here's what we do next Paul he missed a retired teacher sits on the steering committee of Santa Cruz United which gather the signatures to put the recall on the March third ballot the group accuses Glover and crone of creating such a disruptive atmosphere that voters should throw them out of office now even though there's already an election in November with chrome seat on the ballot nothing less than the future of our city I think is at stake we're trying to stem the damage both Glover and chrome denied being disruptive Glover claims they're being targeted over their support for things like rent control limits on evictions in affordable housing requirements and he sees the recall effort as part of a broader attack their ultimate goal is to remove the representation of students the poor and people of color from the city council so that they can maintain business as usual chrome calls the recall campaign undemocratic it's about real estate interests it's about money it's about millions of dollars that is on the table right now in Santa Cruz according to its campaign filing Santa Cruz United raised more than one hundred seven thousand dollars toward the recall through December that's nearly ten times with the campaign to stop the recalls raised two thirds of the pro recall contributions came from another group Santa Cruz together which receives much of its support from real estate interests but Carol Paul Heyman says the numbers don't account for the broad base of volunteers supporting the effort some groups have more time and some groups have more money this is not a right wing fascist anti homeless big developer movement this is local community oriented involves citizen you know recall movement Santa Cruz County clerk Gayle Pellerin says the ballot has two parts first a yes or no on the recall then a vote on who should replace levering crone if their recall you don't have to vote yes or no or vote at all on the question recall to have your vote count on the candidates or vice versa with that in mind backers of Glover and kroner urging people to vote no on the recall but just in case to vote for to progressive former mayors on the ballot Tim fitz Morrison

"Four. Up. You're having a great Wednesday. It is going to get really cold. I mean dangerously cold will step into the weather center with meteorologist Brian got her coming up here in about five minutes. Give you the entire scoop on what you should expect. It's called lakefront plaza. It's a gateway project down near discovery world summer fest. What will be the couture project, which is slated to break ground this year. It's going to be absolutely beautiful. It's supposed to be a world class park that will be built here in Milwaukee. And Pat crescent is a vice president and one of the principals at Greif and I discussed the project with him earlier today. Can we talk about the lakefront gateway plaza project because that is really cool. Yeah. Happy to that's a project that we had one a couple of years ago, let's competition through the city of Milwaukee. And really at that our opportunity to really celebrate our lake front in a more meaningful way. And ultimately connect our downtown to the lakefront. With a with a bridge that would really wake the lakefront and downtown. So give people an idea where this is kind of by discovery world and the art museum in the summer fest grounds, right? Yeah. There's a small piece of land that has some trees and electrical transformers right right between the art museum. The future couture discovery world in summer fest. And the real intent is to provide a bridge from the future couture over to this space, and with that bridge that would allow people to walk and bike and a much easier fashion to the lakefront, you know, everybody's familiar with millennium park. And I think you and others have made the comparison that this could be our version of millennium park. What do you mean by that? How do you envision people using this piece of property, you know, millennium park's great because it's really a bit landmark that people go to Chicago, and they take their selfie Facebook. Everything that's what we're trying to create. Here's that place. And with that we have a water feature that actually which started a tour that would actually take water from the tour. Across Lincoln Memorial drive on the bridge, and then down a series of waterfalls and celebrated in a plaza that this plaza would be a waterfowl no water feature. But in winter would actually be an ice rink. And really think that those unique things would allow people to come to the downtown to the lakefront and really be that place. So we have a lot of stuff in town. Especially on the lakefront that's cool to look at. This sounds like it would be a tourist attraction that's a place people can gather and do things and really hang out. Yeah. It really really wants to be that spot. I mean with that we want to have the ability to to rent meal bikes, maybe segues to really have that place be the place of gathering included with those great amenities. We'd had a coffee shop. We have a beer garden, of course. And a lot of great other amenities just to go along with it. Are there are their pictures or their renderings are there videos? People can check out. Yeah. There's a website on the city of Milwaukee that takes you are late on those state Milwaukee website that takes you to lakefront gateway plaza dot org. Where people can check out more information. There's videos there's rendering there's a lot more information about that project. Hey, Pat, before we talk travel with you. I wanted to ask you about the move of the company's headquarters down to what was the grand avenue mall. This is going to be a catalyst for a lot of good things down there. How excited are you? And the members of the company about this move. Oh, I think it's really fantastic. You know, I've been with great for twenty four years now. And it's one of those moments that you. Always remember when that was announced because it really is a game changer for us. You know, we're headquartered here to Milwaukee. And we've had a great step for the last twenty years out on the west side, but going downtown and becoming an anchor and a catalyst for the redevelopment just really exciting all the amenities that Josh, and Tony and Omar putting in that project just me great for staff, and you look at Milwaukee and things that have happened in the last five years in what's on tap. We kind of in the golden age for development and reinvigoration in our city. You know, I, you know, I've been working doing landscape architecture and planning here in Milwaukee for twenty four years. And I first started there was that renaissance with the Milwaukee art museum, then that turned into other projects like shore and other things that just kept building and the recession kind of pulled it police back, but we have those great projects going again. And I think, you know, whether it's the golden age or would you keep building on success? I'm not sure I hope it continues for a really long time. That is Pat crescent vice president at Greif..
