"For Arizona dot com. Okay, great. How's the race going? Race is going very, very well. I started out this year basically zero and name ID and zero in the polls. In fact, one poll had me at 2% with a 4% margin of error. So you go figure that new math. But anyway, we are you can't go negative. No, right, right. So we are doing very well. We are all over the state in, you know, I had a significant disadvantage on name ID with a primary competitor, and we knew we had to overcome that and we are. And we're all over the state, radio TV, and I am Chris crossing the state loving it. As an Arizona native, I thought I had seen the whole state. Only to find out no, there's a lot of places I haven't been to, but every single day. It is a gorgeous state last week. We were up in page. I was up there to tour the Glen canyon dam and meet with the bureau of reclamation to understand a little bit better. You know, the drought situation in the practical implications of our reservoir system. But while we were there, we went to antelope canyon, which is just one of the great treasures of Arizona. Gorgeous. And so yeah, every single trip we take, I'm seeing more of the state and loving it. So crime, huge issue. We were just talking about all the break ins that we know that are happening in the local area. But I think inflation and crime are tied together. Absolutely. At the end of the day, the election is about safety and security. And that's the job of a governor to make sure that the people of the state are safe and secure. Now with inflation running rampant coming out of the Biden administration, it makes our job that much more difficult. I heard yesterday and you might need to fact check me on this, but I heard that 30% of all the money printed ever has been printed in the last 18 months. I think it's even more than that. I mean, it is crazy. It's unconscionable what we're doing to our kids and our grandkids. We are driving them into bankruptcy. Yeah, and it's happening in our schools and all this. Let's talk about the schools too, which that's really where there's some things governors could do a lot about. There's some things that are like foreign policies like, you know, very little. But schools is one of the things you could do a lot about. Absolutely. And I am passionate about schools. And I have been for a long, long time. 18 years ago, I was 18 years ago, I was appointed. I was appointed to school board, the great heart school board when we had one school. We now have great hearts now has 25 schools with a waiting list of thousands of kids because Arizona parents care about education. They care about choice. We now have more kids enrolled in charter schools in Arizona per CAPiTA than any state in the nation. That's terrific. We are a leader. We also have, and this is critically important. We have more than 50% of our kids going to a school other than the one that they've been assigned, which tells me parents care they want choice. And when I'm governor, the money is going to follow the kid into the classroom and every parent will have the opportunity to pick the best educational pathway for their kids. And Scottsdale unified has just been so terrible. In the last couple of years, Jan Michael Greenberg and that whole thing is dossier. And so that's really where the governor can intervene. And someone like Ron DeSantis who's just been phenomenal in Florida and say, we're not doing the CRT thing. Right. We're not doing any of this nonsense. We're not doing any of this stuff. We're going to kind of come.

"Parts of the west got much needed rain and snow this week, but it comes as the region experiences one of its driest periods in a thousand years. The drought amplified by climate change is renewing debates about how to manage water in the arid west. NPR's Nathan rot takes a look at one debate playing out on the Utah Arizona border over what some see as America's lost national park. It's a quiet day at the bullfrog Marina on Lake Powell. No family is coming or going from the hundreds of more houseboats. No jet skis roaring between the steep rust colored rock walls. Just quiet. It's sad. It's very sad. Rash dombrowski owns one of those houseboats, not that he feels comfortable using it with the lakes waters currently at an all time low. He says it's too dangerous. There are new hazards everywhere. Behind my houseboat, there used to be a zero rock, and now it's 30 feet tall. The Rock is, The Rock is 30 feet tall. So that goes to show you how low we got. Water levels on Lake Powell, one of the largest reservoirs in the country are down more than a 150 feet from full pool. The term water managers use for filled. Rock spires, canyons, bridges and arches, the sorts of awe inspiring formations. You'd see at Grand Canyon or arches national park are emerging from its Turquoise waters. Which is what we're here to see. Only our guide isn't exactly sad to see the reservoir drop. I can't believe there's nobody here. Eric Balkan is the director of the Glen canyon institute. A nonprofit that wants to see the area below the reservoir surface, restore. It's not exactly a popular opinion among Lake Powell's faithful. The reservoir is one of the busiest tourist attractions in the country. People are like, oh, this place is so beautiful and like if you were to build a dam in the Grand Canyon like the bureau wanted to, you know, that would be a beautiful reservoir too, and it would also be a crime against nature. A crime against nature. Balkan thinks that's what happened here at Glen canyon. And he's not alone in that sentiment. But to understand why, we gotta step away from the boat real quick. And jump back in time with a little help from the bureau Balkan just mentioned the bureau of reclamation. The date was February 20th, 1959. The place a remote corner of the Navajo Indian reservation in northern Arizona. Back then, there was no Lake pout. Only a muddy Colorado River, cutting deep through it almost Martian landscape. A place novelist Edward Abbey once described as a portion of earth's original Paradise. Here we go. The making place. Ken slate was a close friend of Abby's and a river runner on the Colorado. Now 92, he says Glenn canyon was home. You come to love it even more than anything. But they ruined it all when they put the water in there. It took a decade of blasting. Digging and pouring concrete to build the Glen canyon dam. The goal similar to Hoover Dam and Lake mead just downriver was to provide water storage along the Colorado and to generate electricity. The dam was finished in 1966. Glen canyon was drowned. Then, two decades ago, scientists say the mega drought began. And in recent years, water levels really dropped. Holy moly. Boating into a side canyon of the Colorado with Eric Balkan, we approach one of the largest natural bridges in the world. A thick span of red sandstone over classic waters. The last time this span was out, Neil Armstrong had walked on the moon yet. We put her in slowly, reflected sun like glimmers on the underside of the bridge like a kaleidoscope. We are gonna fit, right? Yeah. Oh my God. We make it through navigating upstream past the bone white tops of dead trees until the reservoir ends in a narrow canyon. We hit shore anchor up and begin hiking. Before the drought, this whole area was underwater. A white bathtub ring stains The Rock more than a hundred feet overhead. Oh my God, this is so cool. This is totally different than the last time I was here. Near the reservoir's edge, the ground is kind of soupy. And there's not much vegetation just red rock. But as you move up canyon, a creek starts to take shape. And the hike turns more into waiting. Sprouting willows and cotton goods, along with invasive species, line the shores about hip height. And songbirds trill against the canyon's edge. Amidst the occasional historical artifact. Pull tab beer can. Maybe a mile up the creek. The vegetation starts to grow so thick that waiting turns into bushwhack. I mean, we're walking through like 15 foot high willow bushes here. The point of this whole venture, what Balkan wants us to see is that Glenn canyon is recovering. The longer an area has been out of the water, the greater the recovery. I just want to bring like every water manager and everybody that's negotiating the future management of Lake Powell and Lake mead and I want them to come in and experience this and just know that when you're talking about refilling Lake Powell reservoir potentially, you're talking about red drowning this place. Bulk in the glint canyon institute are advocating for a new approach called Phil mead first. As in the next time we get a big snow year, instead of filling up Lake mead and Lake Powell equally, which has been the policies since Glenn canyon dam's construction, water managers should fill mead first, flooding Glen canyon and filling like Powell only if necessary. Hence the unpopularity with some Lake Powell's half $1 billion tourism industry. But Balkan says now is the time to talk about it. This place is changing and it deserves updated management. For a long time, Balkan says he felt like Don Quixote, tilting at windmills. People just said we were crazy and look at what's happening, you know? The reservoir is fading away. And with climate change, it's hard to see a scenario where it's full again. Jack Schmidt is a watershed scientist at Utah state university. Everyone understands that we're in a new normal. He says the whole debate about Glenn canyon is secondary to the bigger issue on the Colorado, which is that we're overdrawing from a shrinking checking account. It doesn't matter whether water is stored in Powell in need 50 50. It doesn't matter for solving the problem of the imbalance of the checking account. That problem can only be solved by reducing consumptive use. The 7 states and Native American tribes it depend on the Colorado River, are renegotiating its management now. And Schmidt isn't sure that the film need first proposal will find its way to the bargaining table. But he agrees it's a good time to have the conversation. Back in bullfrog up shore from the Marina and floating house boats, market Edwards and Steve Thompson are preparing for a day of bass fishing. And they're also game to have that conversation. They love Lake Powell. Edward says he doesn't think it's practical to have it go away completely. I'll floated all these rivers in the west. I mean, I would have loved to have been down here before they put the Lake in. And I would have fought against it, but it's too late now. Too late to get rid of the dam, even if there's not much water behind it. Nathan rob NPR news Glen canyon. Support for NPR in the following message come from data iku, the platform for everyday AI.

"With us. So all of this would have been underwater. Yeah. So what does this tell you about what's happening on the Colorado River? Well, it's a signal of the long-term problem we've been seeing since the year 2000, which is climate change is reducing the flows of the Colorado significantly. Lake Powell and Lake mead the two biggest reservoirs in the country were nearly full in 2000. Today they are just about 30% capacity. The lakes now a 155 feet below four. It's dropped something like 50 feet this year. And it's still dropping. Yes. And that's when power generation actually becomes to come into question. It would drop so low that it may not be able to not be able to generate power. I do electric power. Yeah. Brad you'd all have strong connections to the river. As secretary of the interior, his uncle Stewart udall opened the Glen canyon dam. His father, congressman Moe udall, fought to channel river water to Arizona. A hundred yards. As a young man, Brad was a Colorado River guide. Today he analyzes the impact of climate change on water resources. Is the west on a collision course with climate change? In some ways yes, but we have fully utilized this system we've over allocated it, and we now need to think about how to turn some of this back because the only lever we control right now in the river is that demand lever, we have no control over the supply. So we have to dial back demand. 70% of Colorado River water goes to agriculture. When the federal government declared the water shortage, it triggered mandatory cutbacks. Penal county, Arizona got hit hard. An out county alone, we're going to be losing 300,000 acre feet of surface water. That's water that would be delivered from Lake Powell, like mead,.

"You know. I think if you're sitting on the east coast or or maybe in the mid west on the south you might not have a mental picture of the colorado river and the colorado river sort of ecosystem are their images in your head or or things you think about. That can help people kind of visualize what we're talking about. I mean i've been up and down the river and it's a fourteen hundred mile system. You know both from the high in the rocky mountains in colorado all the way down to the gulf of california and mexico. I mean the iconic images are the big dams the hoover dam and lake mead outside of las vegas and glen canyon dam and lake owl in northern arizona and those are just desert landscapes of red rocks and cliffs lining this immense sort of pool of water. But then i lived in colorado for a number of years and the colorado river. there is a You know is a raging clear stream full of trout running through high mountains with snow. Melt running into it through gorgeous meadows of a green grasses. And it's really that kind of idyllic cliche of a bit wild river.

Can we if these states that you're describing these experiences that you're describing if they are part of this natural makeup and they're they're among us all the time it's just a matter of us accessing them well. I think over time we can practice our access our access. We can notice it. I think we probably blow past a lot of these experiences just in the aesthetic just the feeling of being in the woods or sons doesn't have whatever lights yup But i think. I'm very interested in the aesthetic domain. The sense that i i sent mud my sense is that we are had. We have access to ex- to see much the time. But because our distractions are constructs or whatever our agendas this means to an end nece the strategic kind of approach to life all the time or what. We're doing now as for something later.

We have probably have much more access to this this zone that you're talking about them we realize and we don't need to be in a yurt in the woods with the toad. Necessarily that can help. Facilitate that pathway. Open up that pathway and in a way familiarize ourselves with that place so that were less likely to blow past it and our daily lives.

"Original Colorado River compact of 1922 excluded some people already on the landscape and nature itself. 1944. The United States entered into a treaty with Mexico to share the Colorado River. Much of her work has focused on the Colorado River Delta in Mexico, where the river hasn't reached the sea for decades, and Mexico does have a treaty right to the river to 1.5 million acre feet of water, which at that time was considered to be about 10% of the river's annual average flow. As Mexico built their divert built their diversion to use that, uh, their share of the river. There was a lot of river still flowing by their diversion over the following decades as development continued in the Colorado River watershed and exports of water from the watershed to places like, um, the growing Southern California Urban coast, the river flow diminished and in their early sixties, when the Glen Canyon Dam was dealt excess water in the river. Was that was not needed for delivery to a water user downstream was was then stored behind the Glen Canyon Dam. That was the first time that we saw A near complete elimination of flows into the Colorado River Delta. So the U. S is grabbing the water regardless of the treaty that has signed with Mexico. Well, the U. S is delivering Mexico their treaty water every year in Mexico is taking their treaty water every year. What has changed is that over time the U. S has developed the rest of the river. And so, um I don't think you can point a finger at the U. S. Or Mexico and say it's your fault that the Delta isn't running anymore. I think you have to look at the fact that when two countries Although they had a treaty were effectively managing the river at arm's length. As that unfortunate circumstance unfolded of the river drying out in the delta. Neither country felt Um, as though they had the mandate or the jurisdiction to do anything about it, and we have lived with that unfortunate reality for more or less half a century. And you wrote about eight glorious weeks when the Colorado River flowed into the delta, which was is rare occurrences you've been describing. How does sending more water to Mexico ensure benefits to both the environment and wildlife in both countries? I mean, really that river flow did bring the river back to life with enormous benefits, or, um, critters that rely on the river and also for the communities that live nearby in the largest town. It's really a city in Mexico, situated on the Colorado River is called San Luis Rio, Colorado and that community Um, lives on top of a dry riverbed. And so imagine your name being your city's name being after a river that doesn't flow That's sort of a better pill, but there was definitely a lot of celebration Act. Um, the reversed temporary resurrection. I think However, particularly as we are contemplating impacts of climate change and prolonged drought in the Colorado River basin. It's important to understand that the binational agreement which is under that treaty Is much broader than just environmental benefits. It is an agreement that brings the U. S and Mexico from that arm's length relationship into how much closer Management relationship sharing,.

Only a dozen or so miles off route to the south are standard preflight included refusal to the bottom of the Knicks by the F. B. O. Line crew which gave us about seventy five gallons usable based on our paint stirred dipstick flight planning lanting and those pre ipod days involve the plotter sectionals tape and a calculator. The direct route added up to about four hundred and twenty ninety five nautical miles which would require two hours and forty-five minutes at one. Hundred fifty five knots and some forty seven gallons of gas. Although the pilot's operating handbook said the airplanes should cruise at about fifteen g. p. h. a few years of Phillips had taught me that it actually burned more than and seventeen. This all added up to nearly two hours of extra fuel plenty to handle some scenic diversion and a bit of wind on the nose. We showed our bags and were soon on our way up and over Western Colorado once passed the cones Vr. The terrain falls falls away to the sculpted Canyon Country of the Navajo Nation. I could tell from our. GPS ground speed that we had a headwind not unusual for that flight direction. I headed for page Arizona. Where Glen Canyon Dam marks the start of Grand Canyon? We skirted just north of the special special use airspace. That covers the most noise sensitive parts of the National Park for about twenty minutes. We tracked along the North Rim of the Canyon making sweeping turns take in the amazing scenery. Eventually the Canyon opened out toward Lake Mead and we resumed our direct course to Henderson. This is about when I started to wonder about our fuel situation. The headwind had been persistent in our ground. Speed had stayed around. One hundred and forty knots Sometimes lower the fuel gauges on the one eighty two are notoriously inaccurate and we had no fuel flow meter so it was all about doing the math. I knew that we could cash in altitude for airspeed on the descend into Vegas but we were already past three hours of flight. Time and still some seventy nautical miles from our destination as we began our descent speed picked up but the fuel needles were both hovering close to the Little Red Stripe that indicate zero. My Pal August had flown with me several times before and was reasonably confident in me as a pilot but he couldn't help noticing the situation and said Do you see this is this okay. My response was a quick. Those gauges. Don't really tell the story. We should have plenty twenty of gas with my limited information. All I could do was project confidence but I was a bit worried. Are Our descent. Path actually did give us another option boulder city airport. Thirteen nautical miles. East of Henderson was about five minutes. Closer Sir but a bit offline. I weighed the option of landing fuelling and then taking off for the seven minute flight to our destination. It didn't seem like things. Were quite that dyer so I sold on although I kept a beady eye on TV you as it passed by on our left. Almost there I checked in with Henderson Tower and got my instruction to enter a long left base for one seven right coming up to the turn from base to final. We were still still uncomfortably. Distant from the numbers I had not informed tower of our fuel situation which still did not seem to qualify as an emergency. As is I entered the bank for final the lycoming coughed and sputtered. A sound I had never heard in any plane while airborne and hope to never here. You're again the engine stuttered through the turn and then as I leveled out for final it came back to life a minute later. We were squeaking the tires onto pavement achievement and taxiing for the F. B. O.. And a long drink of one hundred. Lola August and I exchanged relieved looks and I admitted that I had obviously we cut it too close when we finally refueled. The airplane took on nearly seventy gallons to our usual fill level. Lessons is learned. One bottom of the next is less than seventy five gallons of usable dip. Sticks are sketchy to top off for a long long flight. I could have put in another forty five minutes worth in those tanks when we departed with no worries about wait three headwinds and off. Of course diversions can add up to more fuel than you think for banking. The airplane can starve the engine when things are getting boney. Five Live better to spend an extra half hour for fuel. Stop then run dry. Even if it's spitting distance from your final destination. Six apply caution in inverse proportion to the accuracy of your fuel measurement devices ten years and three hundred flying hours later. I applied those lessons on a routine flight from Los Angeles to San Luis Obispo. Our new home in a Mooney M twenty K.. Our new ride. This time it was high fuel prices in Burbank and a twenty five knot headwind. That had me running low cruising along at six thousand five hundred defeat I did not desire an intermediate stop especially with gusty crosswinds at Santa Ynez below me but that little voice told me to to cut the power put it down and fill it up. which is what I did so should you in the never again podcast is brought to you monthly by Ao a the aircraft owners and Pilots Association?

"Time is eight oh nine. KTAR news. Sharper point, presented by Schwartz laser eye center. I don't like to talk about a much, but I was born on the east coast. But I was raised here the west. So my hackles go up when I see east coast media commenting on what's going on out here and the as e-, especially when it concerns northern Arizona where I did most of my growing up. That's why I rolled my eyes several times when I saw this Washington Post headline people keep falling into the Grand Canyon. After a visit. I can see why the opinion piece is about John Kelly's trip west John Kelly is a former deputy editor at the Washington Post and was born in Washington DC. So my initial thought was great some east coast snobs going to tell us we need to put a railing around the entire Grand Canyon to protect people from falling in there have already been four deaths at the Grand Canyon this year. It's not really out of the norm. Both by the way in the official national park into the west on the Walla pie reservation where a Chinese tourists fell thousand feet while taking pictures sounds like an awful. Way to go. The Grand Canyon is by northern Arizona standards, not far away from my hometown of page. But there have been recent falling Desam mmediately outside of pages city limits at the famous horseshoe bend just south of the Glen canyon dam on the Colorado river, so no a little bit about tourists falling by the way, I have to get a plug in here for far northern Arizona tourism as we were told the north rim of the Grand Canyon, which is a whole nother experience. Think more pine trees opens may fifteenth. I guess that's why I'm so perturbed to see some Washington insider critique how we handle things out west. But as my wife likes to remind me, I shouldn't have gotten so worked up before I knew the facts, and the fact is the answer to John Kelly's Washington Post headline people keep falling into the Grand Canyon after a visit. I can see why is idiocy on the part of visitors. He saw people doing some pretty pretty dumb things through the edge of numerous precipice. His oppressive is at the I don't know he says they stopped just about every vantage point along. The south rim of the Grand Canyon. And it just about every single on. He and his wife saw behavior that could charitably be called unwise that included a mom with a beefy toddler backpack. Who hiked past the railing get a better, look a man he describes his Eurotrash dude decided to go clamp down a trail and fashionably unless tennis shoes to grab a selfie and some guy doing yoga poses on a pillar of rock, man. I've seen some of this insanity on Facebook. But seriously people showing off by doing yoga next two thousand foot drop off could lead to some serious downward facing dog KTAR news time is twelve.
