But it's one thing to be eligible for that vaccine, and it's another to actually be able to get it usually must now be more confident in our vaccine supplies. The State Health Department confirmed yesterday that yes, may 1st is the date any chance that date could be moved sooner Doubt that because we do need to get these folks who are most at risk today, and we have to consider that on March 31st less than a week from now, Another two million state residents will qualify for the vaccine, which means Another two million people will be vying for those hard to get appointments.

Governor Inslee announces next steps in re-opening plan for Washington counties and school districts

"Hinting at it for weeks. Governor Jay Hands Lee makes the announcement after one year of closure of our schools. The time has come for every child in the state of Washington to have access to on site instruction, his reasoning. We're doing this because we have experienced a mental health crisis for many of our Children. This will provide them an option. That suits their needs of their family is order has two parts, starting with the younger students. April 5th all students in grades kindergarten through six. Most have the opportunity to engage in an on site hybrid model of instruction. And by April 19th all other K through 12 students must be provided a hybrid model of instruction. In schools that are K through five. It'll it'll apply through K through five. Able 19th. Every school district will need to have at least at least 30% of their pre pandemic. Average of weekly instructional hours that will be provided in person for all K through 12 students, he says. Families who want to remain online on Lee will be able to do so. Going on to say the science shows this can be done safely. There are over 1004 school 400 schools that are doing this safely today with minimal in school transmission. There are over 200 School district's who have been able to figure this out. And there are over 400,000 students that have safely been able to enjoy on site instruction should their families so desire. This is a wondrous miracle that we want every child to be able to experience. We know we can do this safely, and we're confident our ability to do that. And there's federal money available to pay for it. And for mental health services for students, passage of the American Rescue Plan Act. We estimate schools in our state. We'll have received about $2.6 billion that's with a B. $2.6 billion in pandemic relief, and I've heard from many educators who would like that money to go to mental health aid for students. With counselors, nurses and other support workers for a variety of the challenge. Our students have I agree with those educators. We need to do this. A spokesperson for the Washington Education Association. That's the teachers union says they agree a safe return to schools is important. In a written statement, she goes on to say the governor's announcement assumes that districts have the ability to provide safe teaching and learning. And she says some district's just aren't prepared yet. She also says local unions will continue to bargain with district's over a safe return to buildings. Seattle School District has been reluctant to reopen classes. State Superintendent of Public Instruction Chris raped All was asked about that at this time school District, One of the district's who does not have a cruel to access their face, too. Well, because Esther dollars federal relief dollars, I would remind everybody we have one year to distribute those dollars and we will not distribute them to districts. We do not have a viable plan to reopen their schools subject to this governor's order. This year will continue to have that conversation because we know they can get there. They will get there with demonstrated the safety protocols.

"On coma with 406. I'm Charlie Harder. Ah, wide range of topics are covered in the latest cross Could Elway pool Holster. Stuart Elway asked people in Washington about their opinions on current events as well as issues facing the state Legislature. I asked Elway what he found when asking about proposed new taxes in Washington state, finding a way to Hey, for the proposals on balance the budget and put in a new programs is not gonna be easy. Although there was pretty wide discrepancy difference between the partisans in our poll, Democrats largely favored all three of those by pretty substantial margins and Republicans. Opposed them by equally substantial margins. And with the Democrats controlling both houses and the governor's chair That makes it a little easier, But it might be a tougher sell out in the public. There are three questions you asked about legislative proposals to having to do with police and one having to do with carbon emissions. Let's start with this was such a top of mind issue and it still is police reform. So banning chokeholds. What did you find that people felt about that? Well, there were strong support in this poll. And again. We ask this last summer, and then we asked that we did. A survey last when we talked about was King County and Seattle on Lee. And the results have been similar, so strong support, 69% said They favored making it easier to de certify problem police officers so they cannot be rehired somewhere else. 62% favored banning the use of totals and neck restraints, and those numbers have been fairly consistent throughout the whole year and and across the state. But again strong partisan differences, almost unanimous support among Democrats and super majority opposition among Republicans on that issue. And then one of the big issues Governor Inslee is pressing for this legislative session is environmental reform. Let's just talk about a broad sense of lowering carbon emissions. What did responded to tell you? Well, we asked if they favored or opposed requiring makers of gasoline and other fuels to reduce carbon emissions. 63% were in favor and 28% were opposed, and and assuming it falls along many of the same lines, the police questions Oh, yeah. Three quarters of the Democrats or in favor of it. And nine and 10 91% of Republicans were opposed. We're hearing from pollster Stuart Elway. How partisan are we? Is this partisan divide growing even stronger? I think it is throughout this survey and over the last year, So for the most part, it's not just slightly. It's not just 55% 1 way and 55% the other way. It's 80% 1 of the Democrats versus You Know 80% of the Republicans, so it seems like The Gulf is getting whiter. I'm not sure that you could get Republicans and Democrats to agree that it's Wednesday anymore. It wasn't that way. You know Washington.

"Just phony covert 19 plan. Damn it, not pandemic plant on it. Is, in my opinion, a ruthless agenda to destroy all the small businesses, Mr Lawson, and you don't have to take my word for culture. When he's town City in America, you see scores of boarded up restaurants. Small businesses. And why is that they were killed off not by the coronavirus. They were killed off from these ruthless laws, covert 19 laws enacted by our overzealous legislators. Am I have a suggestion? Hold up a second hold. Can I mend one thing, you said in most cases, it's not legislatures because in that case and and the only reason I make that distinction, for example, California Where your side said that there are a number of sheriffs who've said We're not enforcing Gavin Newsom's executive order. It wasn't the Legislature that did it because everybody in the Legislature who wants to keep his or her seat in the Legislature is going to vote on these things thinking when I go back to my community, and I say to them, I voted for that. And they say, and you killed our businesses. That person is likely to lose their seat in the state house. Whatever state they happen to be in, which is, I think why most of the Democrat governors who have done this kind of nonsense the states that are shut down to pretty much the West Coast states, New York and a few others most of America's open right now. But if do you think that if Gavin Newsom had gone to Sacramento and said to the state Legislature, I want you to pass all these tight restrictions, and I want you to give me the authority to shut things down anytime I want. Do you think those state lawmakers even if they have a D in front of their name for Democrats? Do you think they would have said Sure I'd be glad to vote for that and then go back to my constituents. I think they're happy to let the governor do it. They don't have to take responsibility for it. And that means when their constituents complain about it, they say, Well, I didn't do it. The governor did it. So if this had been the action of legislatures, there's there's a natural cause and effect. You vote for a stupid law. Your constituents vote you out of office. Which is why most of these governors like Newsome, like Governor Brown of Oregon, like Governor Inslee of Washington State have chosen not to take it to their state Legislature because they're doing two things one. They're acting in a way that the people have no control until the next election, and Jay Inslee just went through one. Gavin Newsom has one coming up in a couple of years. But there's there's no quick fix to that. That's number one and number two. They're providing cover for their Democrat friends in the State House by saying, I'm gonna lay all these rules down and they can't blame you for doing it, even though that's exactly what should be happening. If you decide that you should shut down every restaurant in the state the way Andrew Cuomo did in New York State. On. You Don't make your Democrat friends in the state and the state assembly up in Albany do it, then they don't have to explain to their constituents why it was done. So I think you're right about that. You just have to be be precise about who's doing what these air, not laws. In most cases, in most cases, they are the executive actions of governors. And I think, in most cases they violate that states Constitution. I just like to finish up by saying that All these saying any any city in the United States. That's like Portland, Oregon, where you show comes from, Let's say this 300 small restaurants this hypothetically say that they've been persecuted by all of these laws. I can't survive their livelihood destroyed. They need to band together. Get a lawyer who take the pro bono would say. Look, we're not going to pay our taxes have a massive taxable. I believe, Mr Lawson, I want your take on it. Do you think that a massive tax revolt across America would get government off their backs, and he's up this persecution or not, well their problems. In fact, somebody was suggested to me earlier today by email. They said, Why don't we all stop paying our taxes? The problem and let me tell you one of the practical sides to that if you stop paying your income taxes in California In most cases, worker's income taxes are extracted through what's called withholding. That is you pay a little bit out of every paycheck. So at the end of the year, you're in the vicinity of what you owe. So if you Whoa, you know, some say $6000 in taxes every year on your income that they take $500 a month out of your paycheck, And at the end of the year, you may be a little bit to the plus side a little bit to the minus side, but you've already paid. So how do you go in and back that out? You you Congar to your employer and say I'm gonna take a massive number of exemptions as many as I can legally get away with, And even even then they're still going to take money out of your paycheck and you will owe the money later on. People might be encouraged to do that, but it would literally take getting millions of people to do that on property taxes. That's a different matter because you and I both know that most of the people who are running these small businesses like restaurants, they're not in space that they own their It's in space that they rent. So you would have to get the owners of the buildings to say We're going to refuse to pay our property taxes and then pass the savings on in some way to the restaurant to keep them around because the restaurant tour who has a leased space, which I think is the vast majority of them. He ain't paying the taxes anyway. It's being paid by his landlord. He's paying rent, and and so I don't know how you get enough of those building owners to say we're going to short now I will tell you one thing. A number of years ago, I knew a guy who owned a chain of hotels, small hotels in the West Coast and in the western United States, and he got very angry at one county. He was in because he had fulfilled all the requirements to build the project, and he already owned hotels in the county and the county said No and and they they did it because they didn't like his politics. They decided just to string him along and jerk him around. So you know what he did. He took the property taxes on the hotels he owned. And he said, I'm not gonna pay them right now. Now, in most states, the rules differ from state to state. But in many states, you can simply say, I'm not going to pay the property taxes this year, and you can often get away with it for two or three years. And while you've so say you owed $100,000 in property taxes in a smaller county on 100 Grand's a lot of money, tol of sudden disappear. So the county is expecting you get 100 grand in 2020, and they don't get the check. They say, Where's the check? And you say, I'm not going to pay it for three years, so they're looking at three years, $300,000. At the end of that you'll end up paying the money anyway. At some point, or they'll seize the property. But in most most states, you don't have to pay for a period of time without any consequence. Like the county, seizing your property, Believe me, he got their attention the first year. They didn't get the check. I forget what the amount was. But you might have even been a couple of $100,000. And he knew that he'd pay a small fee, a penalty and a little bit of interest on the money. But frankly, I think he parked the money in an account to earn interest on it, so he didn't have to worry. About what they were going to do to him because he just took the money instead. It aside to pay it later. Imagine being a county that's expecting several $100,000 from you, and they don't get the check and the next year they don't get the check. And the third year they don't get the check..

Can Seattle arts groups survive the pandemic?

"Corona virus is a public health crisis of course but it's also devastated the economy it's been especially destructive businesses that depend on people gathering together in person tourism restaurants and the arts. Kyw's arts and culture reporter. Marcy silman has been monitoring the health of the regional arts and culture community. She spoke with kim. Malcolm about what. We might see moving forward so marcy for the past couple of months. You've been doing some deep dive reporting on how the pandemic has impacted our cultural communities. How would you describe what you found across the board. Kim organizations are treading water. If they haven't already drowned you might remember last march. When governor inslee issued his social gathering restrictions. everyone had to shut down operations museums and some art galleries have started to welcome back visitors. But they're at twenty five percent of normal capacity which just does not sound sustainable. And marcy you and i've talked about how performing arts groups and musicians have been streaming content and how it just doesn't cover the costs for many of them. So what are arts leaders telling you about this pivot to digital when it doesn't pay the bills. Peter bowl who is the artistic director at pacific. Northwest ballet told me that he pivoted digital because he wanted to give some work to the dancers musicians backstage artisans and other staff who would otherwise be unemployed. According to a new study from the seattle advocacy group arts fund. Thousands of area of workers are still jobless and even though as we said. Some venues have reopened. This survey found only about nine percent of local artisans and been rehired many back part time or reduce salaries but kim beyond providing jobs. I think that this pandemic has really forced performing arts groups to reckon with the digital age in a way that they hadn't done before the pandemic kit. And what do you mean by that. Well for at least a decade arts groups have been trying to figure out how they compete with free or low cost online content that arts fund study that i mentioned found that every responding group plan to permanently integrate digital content into their arts program offerings the ceo of arts fund. Michael greer told me that's partly because audiences are really leery about heading into enclosed spaces with lots of people that component that new revenue component is going to be essential to kind of filling the void of individuals. Trepidation do moving back into the theaters or just a general reorganization of how society interacts with itself. Not even just in the arts bottom line marcie will most arts groups survived this pandemic. It's really hard to say for certain. But to quote the head of seattle's office of arts and culture randy angstrom. The sector is on the knife's edge getting people to value in compensate artists and creatives for their time was already a challenge. Then the pandemic it and it was devastating. And i think that that devastation was disproportionately felt by by park organizations and artists because they've been underinvested and undercapitalized for so long and i'll just note here by poc refers to artists who are black indigenous and people of color. What is happening with these communities. Well this summer one worries alicia. Johnston told me that they only have the funds to make it through the calendar year. I did check back with her earlier this week. And she says that right now. They've got about half the budget for twenty twenty. One heart of that came from contributions sparked by black lives matter but she told me those have tapered off and even though she describes herself as one worry self designated worrier about money. She's pretty hopeful that they'll raise the two hundred thousand dollars. They need to keep this community cultural center going. Marcy i know can county. And many private funds have funneled relief. Money to the arts sector. What are arts leader saying about what they need to survive. Many hope congress will enact another significant stimulus measure randy. Angst room would like to see a twenty first century version of the works progress administration. That was the depression era program that funded arts projects across the country. Local artists have already stepped up. And they've been making murals. And creating digital arts lessons plan for the public schools angstrom and many other folks think it's time to fairly compensate them for that work. And how optimistic is he that that might happen. I'm gonna let him answer that. I am hopeful because the creative community of the city gives me that help. I am hopeful because of the incredible resilience. I've seen and we need to meet that resilience with dollars and faith in their work but angstrom says the city cannot finance this on its own. They really need a major influx of federal dollars. At this point. Who knows when that's going to happen. We'll mercy speaking of resilience. I have to acknowledge. Even though i don't want to that this is most likely our last on air conversation about the arts as you retire from k. u. o. w. after a remarkable thirty five years. Marcy i just wanted to say thank you we're gonna miss you and all the attention and the advocacy for the arts. That you've paid Here in this part of the world.

The stories came from all over the state and had a familiar tone are state failing. The workers group working Washington put on a Facebook live oven Thursday, offering a platform critical of how unemployment claims have been processed. Since the pandemic began, and eventually ended up living in my car. At that point, I decided that nothing about the system would change unless people like us started seeing down. Steve Beaver lost his job mid March. We are here today to call attention to the employment security departments, failures.

This week's unemployment numbers reflect a near 43% jump in new claims for a department still having a rough time dealing with claims that dates back to April, May and June. For its part, the employment security division has hired Mohr help in an effort to get benefits paid. But if we're in the heat of a battle, Armageddon could be just around the corner. On Thursday, governor Inslee reflected on the recent rise in covert 19 cases and said, If we can't get these numbers falling soon, he'll consider closing the state once again and ordering a second stay at home order. The threat likely sent the business community into a panic mode, as many of them are barely hanging on at this point. And the second state closure would push thousands more residents to an unemployment department that can't keep up with current demands. The governor then reminded us there is something that will prevent another closure. So how individuals respond to this crisis? Will determine what happens to all of us combined.

"Well, I it was the Coen testimony. Then the president walked away from the summit with North Korea with nothing really to show for that effort. Then the house Dem's kicked off a wide ranging investigation. This week of all aspects of the administration rough week to say, the least right? Well, not according to the president's poll numbers. Let's get into that. With ABC news political analyst, Alex Castellanos. Good morning. Alex. Good morning. Good to have you on first off before we get to the poll numbers. Your take on what the house Dem's are doing this week. Is there any way this ends without impeachment proceedings? Is that their ultimate goal? The Democrats are torn there's a young Qadri New Democrats who come to the house. They women leftists. They're determined to impeach Donald Trump. But the democratic leadership Nancy Pelosi Chuck Schumer. They're not assure sure that impeachment is going to help Democrats at the ballot box. Look, we're getting pretty close to twenty twenty and a lot of Democrats. Maybe too close we ought to leave impeachment in the hands of voters on election day and not take that power from them. So what are they doing? Let's throw every committee hearing we can't at Donald Trump. Let's look like we're going after Donald Trump. But maybe we don't have to take that power away from voters, Alex. We alluded to the poll numbers in. I guess the thing that shocks me. The most is how much they're intractable. They haven't really changed if anything the president's gone up a little bit. But he's still continues to hold that very fervent base. So all this doesn't seem to matter much, at least in the mind of the electorate, isn't that remarkable every week is Donald Trump's worst week this one included, and guess what his numbers has you just said or rock solid why because you doing well because there are a lot of jobs because wages are finally going up. And because Donald Trump is still the only thing standing between a lot of Americans in Washington in the past. We've seen him if he has a bad week or bad few days. He goes on a campaign style rally and ups those numbers in ups his base and gets them excited manner. Again, how much does it help him that even after the week? He had last week. He gave that tour to four speech at CPAC and just reconfirms is importance to his base. You know, that speech was was so dead on politically you walk out on stage and hugs the American flag. The crowd goes nuts. And guess what? The democrat. Responses. Oh, he didn't show enough respect for the American flag. As long as the alternative is is Donald Trump a fun loving positive make America great again candidate versus a cranky dour Democratic Party. Then that's a pretty good election for Donald Trump before we let you go. Alex, our own governor former governor John Hickenlooper got in the race handicap his chances as you just adding to a muddled field Hickenlooper has a personality which a lot of these democratic candidates. Don't have in the strongest candidacies Caesar not ideological candidate Caesar issue candidates their personality candidate, so yes, he has a small chance to spark. But it's such a crowded field and the democratic primary this year. Three of the voters are women the early primaries, you're going to be in heavily minority states. So watch out for Kamala Harris since opposed to John Hickenlooper kid points, Alex Castellanos from ABC news. Thanks so much to be with you to take a deeper. Dive now into former governor Hickenlooper chances in the race for the White House. We're talking now with democratic strategist, Mike, Dino, good morning, Mike. Hey marty. How you doing today? Doing very well. Thank you so much for your time. So it was the timing. Right for the former governor to announce that he's in the run. Oh, it's great timing. He needs to get out there. Get his name known. You know, the last out of the last day presidents have been governors are last two haven't been and it's kinda polarize the country. So we probably need a governor Hickenlooper called himself an extreme moderate. Yeah. Who else is in the race like him and who's his biggest competition? Do you think? Well, biggest competition will probably be himself has to raise money has to get out there and marketing himself, he's been good at that. And when he's been very successful at it, obviously got elected mayor and governor. And so it's a matter just touching hands. And being in front of a lot of people. Mike are strategist is a singular message work, for example. I know that governor Inslee in Washington, he's making it climate change. Some other people have made about social security made it about the green deal. What does John Hickenlooper have to have a singular message? Does he have to be? More of a populist. Well, I think being a populous might help. But one thing when it comes down to a partisan message. He turned this date from a really purple state to a blue state and Democrats want to know that they got a guy who's ready to convert a lot of folks over to their side of the aisle. And when you're in the primary season in you're in Iowa New Hampshire, they're gonna love that statistic that he took Colorado to blue there's so much time before the election, Mike, but what do you think of the mood of the democrat voter at least right now, do they want a centrist or do they want more of a progressive like Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren? Well, I think they want anybody that can go up against Trump and prove that he can stand up to him. And I think John's early message right now certainly that his throughout his life. He's taking on big challenges surprise, people income through successfully the name recognition in and of itself. Hickenlooper is a funny name. But remember, but but does Colorado have that kind of gravitas at the coastal states, do and some of the other bigger. Her name candidates. Sure, we put some big people up in the past. You know, Gary Hart being one of them. And and when Tim wars was Senator and even the talk of Michael Bennett having to people from Colorado in the mix is a big deal. And I think we kind of you know, we we we have a strong stranglehold here on the Rocky Mountain time zone. So now, we just need to branch out and Mike before we let you go. And I know he just jumped in. But do you think the governor may be better served as the undercard maybe being the veep for one of these candidates? Well, I think John never wanted to consider being second fiddle. And so he's going to be going for the top dog. Mike will run at that. Thanks so much for the time this morning, we appreciate it. Glad to be here..

And they all got rolled think of what he would do with this governor think what I would do with this governor if this governor had the courage to come on this radio program. And that would be me being kind to him. What does he think about the campground here in the Pacific northwest? I don't know what does he think about safe injection sites? I'm not sure what does he think about the auto control a wildfires? He thinks we should put them out. Now, there some leadership I agree with him on that we should put the fires out. What does he think about what happened in downtown? Target store in the biggest city in his state. He's the governor of this city. The fourteenth fastest growing metro and the country. What does he think about this? I don't know. I don't know what he thinks about this. What does he think about apples and getting more people to come pick those not sure what does he think about the China tariffs, which is a big deal in Washington state? I think he has some thoughts. I will tell you this. He a very good basketball player. I watch him Dori Monson play one on one a couple of years ago. And what had happened is. We ended up in a he endured. He had some kind of bad. We ended up in a gym up north. I didn't have my cornea fix yet. And I turned and Mack Brown. Former fullback for your Seattle, Seahawks took a basketball and drove it in my head about one hundred and twenty seven miles an hour. And boy did that leave a Mark. If I didn't need a coordinator transplant after maxima that basketball. I still I needed one. After that. Let me tell you what I did though. I took that ball that had just been impaled inside of my head. I pulled it out, and then I sky hooked, and I was one for one against the governor's team. And then I laughed, and I don't know if we want loss. I'm not sure. And I said I had to go see my son, which I really didn't have to do. But I just didn't wanna look at Dory and the governor's legs anymore because they both had on John Stockton shorts. And if you don't know what John Stockton shorts. Are they're very short shorts from the nineteen seventies. And when you see a very popular radio host along with the governor with some white legs Wisconsin going on in short John Stockton shorts. It's very alarming. Ron you were there. I think you were one for two or you might have been jumper. But this is you might have free weight loss for Jerry whenever you want for two or two for to know. I was one for two or one for them it like a fifteen foot jumper. Am. I right Mack Brown. Impales the ball side of my face. And I still sky hooked in score as a heck of a pass by him. It really was like a court skyhook was only like a three foot skyhook. But I was still very proud of it. And I entered the fight. And don't think I didn't find the governor was a very good basketball player. He's a very poor politician in don't you think don't you think? I I will tell you this right now, I didn't vote for Donald Trump. This might make me vote for Donald Trump. Oh, yeah. If he was going ahead governor Inslee or Donald Trump. Who would who would you who would you vote for if that was my my head to head to vote for insulate? You would. Yes. Wow. Proud of yourself. Shawn. We bring the music on here. Wow. We have the finest votes finest gold-plated votes. You don't appreciate the president down the Carolinas today throwing paper towels people the same way that he did it in Puerto Rico. You didn't appreciate that. Nice windbreaker maverick. I did like the presidential windbreak. You know, what that's what George Bush, George W Bush still talks about he misses the plane. He misses that leather jacket the bomber jacket and just flying around on that plane and all the jackets that come with that plan because I guess there are certain. You have a windbreaker the lead. The bomber jackets bomber. And it's all green military, John names on it. And it's all all that gear is on the plane on Air Force One and two just waiting for you. So I didn't see the Florida's today. Did anyone see the the floaters? No, she down there. I don't know. But last time they went to Puerto Rico. She had the hat on that said Florida's and that's what absolately fell in love with her. It everything she's about it's the dog show. The. President inslee. I can't even get used to that twenty eight hundred Don. Out of my own state. But concentrating on it, what do you think of all the heads of the heroine epidemic?
