"From wnyc in new york. This is on the media. I'm bob garfield this week. A house committee is voting on whether to admit puerto. Rico as a state but puerto ricans have been here before. This is puerto rico progress island. Usa kind of reminds me of the seinfeld episode. where george costanza told the parents of his deceased fiance. That has a house in the hamptons. And they know it's not true. This website is at best only temporary solution. The united states is not legally bound by its result and neither is puerto. Rico the only place where we can call ourselves sovereign in sports. We got to be someone. Maybe right here cardinals. Those rebound we've been in a car with the united states headed to the hamptons when we all know there's no house in there. It's all coming up after this. Hi i'm alana. Casanova burgess and i've got a quick note before we get to this week's on the media i'm the host of a podcast called lebedeva stories of the puerto rican experience. You've been hearing some of the episodes of labrada on the on the media feed and that's because really on the media made the show possible. It's really an experiment in creating the kind of coverage producing the kind of storytelling that put the audience. I the tries to do justice to a place that a lot of the mainstream media gets wrong or just doesn't get at all and by the way we made the series in both english and spanish. So we wouldn't leave anybody out. There's really nothing else. Like it. And i can tell you lobbied i wouldn't exist if the team here on the media and wnyc didn't say hey. These are stories that really need to get reported out. It's gotta get made. Let's do it. And the majority of our funding here at wnyc studios comes from you our listeners. So thank you to support ot otm and projects like lebedeva. All you have to do is text the letters ot m two seven. Oh one a one.

This is on the media. I'm bob garfield and i'm brooke gladstone. Last month many puerto ricans where incensed by spring breakers and other visitors soup flouted local rules imposed to reduce the spread of covid nineteen. Puerto rico was one of the first. Us jurisdictions to issue a mask mandate and it maintains strict curfews. The pandemic wasn't politicized and when it arrived amid earthquakes. In the south end the protracted efforts to rebuild after hurricane maria puerto rico's fragile health care system was still able to cope torres. They're always welcome but is one local told nbc news. People can't come here and act as if the virus doesn't exist they have a sense of entitlement and apathy. I don't understand for the mainland. The island has long been a locus of both entitlement and apathy but next week politicians some of them anyway. We'll be paying attention on april fourteenth wednesday at one pm eastern time the national resources committee which oversees territorial affairs will consider two competing bills one would provide for the admission of puerto rico as a state the other would provide for true self determination. I either would be historic. Both are deeply opposed by the gop. There's also a rich history of division within puerto rico over what it status should be but most agree that the current situation this disenfranchised limbo isn't it opium producer alana. Casanova burgess also is host of the la break podcasts produced by wnyc and futura studios and in this episode la brea offers up some insight into that part of american history that the mainland mostly doesn't know and needs to understand. Here's the lana. I've noticed that outside of puerto rico. Many people seem uncomfortable calling the island a us colony in english. You'll hear the word territory or commonwealth protectorate. Even and that used to be the case in puerto rico to but not anymore i watch. I'm puerto rico. jamal jon. Cooper reported their corny saskia on puerto. Rico is not looney. Little stabs who need those people would twist themselves into pretzels to avoid the c word. And there's a reason for that put. Americans were promised that they were not a colony. This is yeti madonia yeti mad as a political anthropologist. She has a column in the puerto rican newspaper in will the yeah and she's also written for outlets like the washington post and the nation that promise that yeti meta mentioned about not being a colony. It's pretty much been broken in one thousand nine hundred ninety two were dorigo had adopted this new political status called the aila the estelito cielo or free associated state which doesn't really mean much in english. We call it a commonwealth. And what does that mean is it like the commonwealth of massachusetts no is it like the commonwealth of canada also no commonwealth doesn't really mean anything concrete but it's the kind of word that made everyone feel better about the us having colony the estelita so seattle. The aila promised self-governance but not independence. It was kind of compromise created by the island's first elected governor lewis marine in order to massage continued colonial interests of the us. Puerto rico and present a sovereign future to his residence and came with this labeled. It sounded like decolonization. He thought that makes sense. Had all this language of decolonization thought that he could set legal. Precedents to kind of if you build it. They will come like if you build it. They will decolonize kind of idea. And then meanwhile the united states they're like well. We're going to pretend that we're decolonizing but we're not really going to decolonize so it's like both parts. Were kind of calling each other on their bluff. It kind of reminds me of this seinfeld episode. That i love where like george costanza meets up with the parents of his deceased fiance. And he tells them he has a house in the hamptons..

"My estimation it's going to take you know it might take us a couple of generations before we do reach that sort of you know babies just born being first language speakers of take some time but there's definitely amongst the community the interest. Is there melanie. Rodrick of the mashpee tribe. She's a teacher with the wom. Language project now governor lewis. Your governor of the healer river indian community in arizona and melania is a member of the the wasp nog tribe in massachusetts but of course the the loss or elimination of languages is a common has been a common experience. Monks native people regardless of tribal affiliation. So i wonder if you wanted to talk about the money. That's that's going to go to cultural preservation and why that's important it has been and and and literally our name translates to people of the river. Our water was stolen from us. Our precious river was stolen from us over one hundred years ago and we thought that To protect and to regain our water rights. My my father was one of the first native american attorneys for my tribe and and and The one of the first to pass the bar in arizona and to represent our tribe and our water rights and we have that history of loss but also that history of regaining our water and of course our our language and our culture are tied to that as well. And you know. I i like to say. I think it's important that we talk about this. Is that this significant amount of money. A down payment on the future of you know of for the responsibilities that that have not been and those promises that have not been You know been been lived up to. And i like to say To my people because it is about hope and keeping hope during this this incredibly dangerous time of loss and and and of of public shelf within the midst of a public health emergency. And i like to see that we stay hilo river strong and and by doing that you know it is about maintaining those connections so using you know broadband us some of these resources for critical issues. The brunt keeping our elders connected We've we've purchased tablets for our elders to keep connected We have a a a long term facility that we operate under on on our community. And so we've used those are residents in the long term health facility. They weren't able to see their family because of the health concerns for over a year so we've had virtual visits for them and for those to our children as well. you know. we've well governor. If i can step in here. I'm sorry the lines getting a little shaky so forgive me for stepping in here. But but don t let me turn back to you here for a second. Because you know we've been talking a lot about things like physical infrastructure that the the money can go directly go to rebuild but The cultural piece of it's almost as cultural infrastructure for for a community spiritual infrastructure. Even to help you know strengthen and hold together and build a community. Is that how you see. You know these other pieces of the funding. Yeah i i see this in a in a much bigger picture and the significance of this Can't be here so tribal leaders are different from every other elected leader in this country. They also have the responsibility of carrying on culture and carrying out ceremonial practices. So that makes these tribal leaders have additional responsibility. Swells the responsiveness to their community. Needs the idea that we have. The federal government stepping in to be able to say we're going to fund the preservation of languages and other cultural components of your communities. It's recognizing the tribal way of governing. And it's also a complete federal policy shift and only in the last couple of years as this happened. The federal government was in the business before taking native kids in sending them to boarding schools to be taking away their languages and they were also in the business of being able to tamp down on cultural Activities and the resurgence of the federal government. Recognizing one the role of tribal leaders but also recognizing how important culture is. It's not just for the the the tribal leaders. This is america's oldest languages. The tribal governments are the oldest governments. And we have the oldest cultures in this country. And i think it's so important as a national treasure to be able to go in this direction for the federal government. And when you look at what happened in the pandemic the reason this is in there or one of the reasons is that the people who are most vulnerable were older language speakers and the people who tell the stories in our community when we lose an elder in to covid. We often lose a bit of that culture. I know in my community. The elders tell stories during our culture camp and pass long. Life was like you know from you know from when they were growing up and everything. It's valuable resource for passing that on so the significant of this. I think is really important to note well with that. I'm afraid we're out of time. But dante executive director of the nonprofit and afoa.

"Point, the American rescue plan and native communities. Could this be Transformational moment for indigenous people. Well, we'll start today with Dante does a Dario, executive director of the nonprofit Enough Oh, uh, formerly known as the Native American Finance Officers Association. He joins us from Washington. Welcome to the show. Great to be here Mega and also with us is Stephen Rowe Lewis, governor of the Healer River Indian Community, which is located next to Phoenix. Arizona. Governor Lewis, Welcome to you. Good scoop, Tosh. Good day. Magna. It's not gonna be here. It's great to have you both. So so, Governor Luis, if I could just start with you first. What difference Give us the big picture here. What difference will this $31 Billion in, um in resource is Make for native communities like yours. Well, this funding is historic level of funding for trouble governments, not just because of the amount of funding but because of the equitable treatment of trouble, governments and the acknowledge. Really is a tribal leader, the acknowledgment of tribal sovereignty and self determination that have played just a tremendous amount of of critical Support in our response to this pandemic, you know, in the early years Excuse me in the early days of the pandemic was missing for tribal governments was our federal partner. Our relationship is with the federal government. Sovereign tribal nations. It's a government to government relationship in until this year, the pandemic response was delegated to the states, so there were a lot of gaps and inconsistencies of all tribes. Were treated on We really we realized early on that we needed to be innovative and entrepreneurial to make sure our community Did not become a hot spot. You know, despite the state of Arizona, becoming one of the world's top hot spots during the pandemic two separate times during this, this this public health emergency, so this funding is timely. Because the community as you know, we utilize all of our funding from the cares act and this American Rescue Plan Act funding will not only see the community and other tribes through the pandemic will help us to put the tribal infrastructure in place. Should we be faced with a similar situation in the future, but also addressed the disparities that have been persistent for decades and longer, right? And so that's the thing it it's it's actually much more than specifically coded Covert specific If I could repeat myself, they're spending um Dante Desiderio, let me hear from you. I understand that you actually advocated on behalf of tribal governments for the inclusion of this $31 billion in in funding. Tell us what you think. What a difference. It will make. I think one of the things that can't be stressed enough that you heard from Dr Mars and Governor Lewis on the idea of the The past plays into this and a significant amount. The chronic underfunding by the federal government has been going on for generations and that chronic underfunding had consequences during this pandemic. So Indian country had higher infection rates and higher death rates than any other population in the nation, especially early on in the pandemic. So the amount of funding allocated to tribal governments and the American relief plan It won't solve everything, but it goes a long way and being able to address some of these social and economic disparities have been laid bare during this crisis and give you a couple of examples. One is the inadequate funding for housing. We have the highest occupancy rates in housing in the country. When a pandemic hits and you have multi generational housing, and you have a community or Indian communities in general that have higher social interactions. It could be devastating during a pandemic and the other part and I know we'll get to this a little bit later is the Indian health service has been chronically underfunded. So any surgeon all means that we're at capacity pretty quickly, So we had to really scramble and get really creative. So some of the funds that have already been out and trying to give us some support for the impacts were good. What I think for this conversation more specifically, the American relief plan. What it does is help us not just deal with the impacts like we have been in trying to organize Thies crisis centers to take care of our people and protect our people. But it's going to help us recover and hopefully come out of this crazy time. More prepared, more structured. And you know, the hope would be that we also have more diverse economies. And just on that last point, we rely on economic development. For to fund our government programs and services because of this chronic underfunding by the federal government, So it's a goes beyond just an economic downturn. It's an economic and a government downturn. It's a funding crisis and our industries are a huge part of our economy in general in Indian country. Is in the hospitality space. So tourism, hotels, gaming and all of that heavy completely shut down, completely shut down. So you had in Indian country is multiple crises that we're hitting the economic and the health care so going forward. In the American relief plan. There's this idea that One is going to be a longer time period, which is which is very hopeful. There's a bit of infrastructure in there, so the idea is that we're gonna build out be able to be in a position to protect our people have more diverse economies and really look for so so I want to. Actually we're going to spend some time really diving into details on some of what this $31 billion is marked for for native communities. Cause it's really interesting. And, um, you know, I want us to collectively learn what difference this could make in all as in many aspects of life, But before we do that, you mentioned sort of this historic underfunding. Can you talk a little bit about like previous spending packages that had that were passed in what? The seventies and eighties? I mean, how does this compare? I don't think we have to look that far back because there hasn't really been too many historic spending packages for Indian country. It zah reason that tribes during the Self determination Act during the 19 seventies under President Nixon, of all people went towards self determination for tribes..

"Garret is off today. This is that Martin would be here today and tomorrow. I know Gary Garrison Town somewhere, but I've always tried to figure out what he's actually doing when he's not here. And my theory today. I had a theory. A couple of weeks ago he was playing in the Masters that turned out to be fake news. My theory today is He's a declared himself. Governor elect Well, not now. President. They know that I think I think I think I think guard Eric. I love listening to carry it a long time, and I think there it is very cut some very strong opinions about how the state of Arizona should be run, and I think he's declared himself Governor elect. This is the process of forming the Arming his state statewide cabinet. Uh, I don't think I would ask Governor. Yeah. Governor Lewis to be governor elect to be Louis. Um, is I'd like to be in charge of elections like to give them the million machine. Yeah, Keep them Dominion. Rashid's there. Put me in charge of elections. Why am I laughing? Why the heck of my laughing ever? This is funny. None of it's funny because it's like when your when your Children were little and you actually catch them with their hand in the cookie jar, and they have a cookie in it and stuff all over their face. Have you been taking the cookies? And they say no. Your hands in the jar. You got chocolate all over the face. Um, well, there's no evidence, no evidence, no evidence. So, you know the problem with the mainstream media also election security and fraud stuff. You know, like like this guy Bernstein called Bernstein. You know, he's like, Wow, There's nothing going on Trump's No good, Rob, you know, so this gives guys like a dinosaur of news journalist, You know, I mean he's way beyond his time. But You know, he comes from because of a generation with, you know, they caught the Watergate burglars. You know, the burglars in the Watergate actually caught the guys in the freaking headquarters. Okay, You're trying to find out what went on in these voting machines. It's a little different today. Yeah. You don't have the photographic evidence of Joe Biden that his laptop hacking into something changing votes from Donald Trump to himself. Okay, You're not gonna get that. Okay, so since you're not gonna get that So, as I was saying, you can prove crimes by virtue of mathematical anomalies. You know, like like embezzlement. Okay, That's an anomaly. Hey, wait a minute. With the money Go. It's missing. Or it was supposed to go on to this account to this account of this account. You know, money laundering, You know, I mean, there's all sorts of stuff here. So Was mentioned in this guy Russell Ramsland. He's got a company called Allied Security Operations Group, and he's basically done a real deep, deep dive into these Dominion. Systems. Not only the Dominion systems into these systems in general So, uh, The reports are that he's got hard evidence of voter fraud. From an analysis of the 2018 election logs. And all the way up. To the election this year. And he said, this is this is this is not about trump or buying. This is about the reliance on the system for a free and fair election, and I agree with that. As much as I want to see Donald Trump eat certified as the winner. But the important thing is making. I have Russell Ramsland, saying how easy it was actually changed votes. There's no security on the machines and they are. Our election data is held in Germany as well. Part of your story. I'm psychic. You are somewhere you are amazing. Started talking about him. The next thing you know, You get him? You are something else. I got something. We'll continue on. Whoa! So anyway. He's looked and traced the spikes, okay? His team has been studying the voter data from Michigan, and they found it in four specific counties. They were folks bikes that showing votes mainly for Biden. He goes, We've gone back Trace the spikes we've seen where they were cast primarily in four kind of looked at how long it was took the cast Those votes. We looked at the equipment that exists all of those locations by serial. I mean, the fact of the matter is We can't see any physical way possible for some of those votes to have been in those kinds of numbers because they just don't have the equipment to produce it. Evidence. Proof. There's no evidence. No, there's no evidence. Oh, I didn't see I didn't see it. I didn't see Electra. I didn't see the guys stealing the votes. I need to photograph E. Only the live video. By the way, this live video, I guess from them pulling Well, the big central place in Atlanta. Like as Lin Wood, the attorney, there is that's a fighting T O get to the bottom of what happened in that election. He he tweeted out this morning that he's got that he's they subpoenaed the video from the Secretary of state Had this whole section of video that surveillance is going to surveillance cameras show what was going on. And I haven't seen it yet, but I guess that's coming up. The other thing is, when is that lawsuit going to go in? The Trump campaign. People said it was gonna put it in Monday or Tuesday.

"All right, we'll close up the short more of your phone calls. 808 590957 just went Wikipedia's only source he could find quickly on that mission. Guinean term and Michiganders and our car was right. It was Abraham Lincoln, who coined the term Michiganders. On and he did it while he was serving as a representative Congress for the WIG party. W H I, G. So they could make a speech against our governor Lewis CASS in 18 48. Hey, was long time governor of the Michigan territory and he decided to run for president. On a popular sovereignty platform. Let basically would have allowed states like Michigan to decide whether to legalized slavery well, Lincoln accuse Democrats of campaigning On Andrew Jackson's coattails by exaggerating their military accomplishments. So you had that battle going on. So it was Lincoln, who combined Lincoln was upset at Lewis CASS, obviously, and he combined Michigan with gander and formed the nickname that made cast he thought sound foolish. Like a goose that he came up with Michiganders and over the years it's been Michigan drawer Misha Guinean, But right now, most people use Michiganders and, Ah, various polling that's been done shows that people prefer. Michiganders to anything else. So there you have it. There's probably more than you wanted to know about all of this. Just got a note from producer Chris ran like I wanted to. Ah, Take a look at this record. Teo, a machine Department attorney general sent out an email. A G Nestle shifts focus to long term care facilities. Violating executive orders. We're going to go arrest seniors now. That obscuring You and the other feeling. I'm going to go out and arrest our seniors. Yeah. So they're going to they're going to focus on long term care facilities. Violating executive orders. Where's your concern For the safety of these people? Why shouldn't that be listed? Number one? Why should we not be talking? Attorney General gets out? If I should be not I should be not be talking about The mishandling of the patients who were sent Two senior living facilities, long term care facilities by our governor ordered there And people with Cove. It Had to be taken by these nursing homes. Just shocking stuff, but we ignore the facts as usual. Ah, that radical left side That's run by our two authoritarians. And, you know, I used to think that den of the message Was. I used to think that she was doing this on her own and that the governor was going to be upset at some of the things she was doing. But it's become clear over time, hasn't it that the two of them work hand in glove? I mean, they might as well be AA The Siamese twins. Really? Because they share the same the same view of how the state should be run, and it should be run in an authoritarian style by them under their wishes. So that's going to continue because the attorney general says it gets we're going to send more people to ah to nursing homes and the death toll will go up because still The highest percentage of deaths come from nursing home residents about 1/3 or more of the deaths from Cove. It are from nursing homes. Okay, let's go to. Ah, Troy right now, Gary. Here on the Frank Beckmann Show Gary on the line there. Yes, He's their area, Frank. Thanks for taking my call. Pleasure. Um, yeah. You know what the governor said really opened yesterday because I'm not White Christian mail and as a Christian What do you think My position is on racism and bigotry and hatred and my parents were developed Christians and to you know, No, She tried real hood not to say we waste What would buy? You know, I don't have any bias in me and I'll tell you why I went to Bloomfield Hills School system. Hey, there's a lot of money there pretty much, everybody there was quality. The kids there were Indian kids. Asian kids, black kids, white kids walking up and down the hallway now, where's the bias there? Where's my white privilege? It is very easy to just accuse you of that, though, isn't it? It's very easy to just throw that out there and and not worry about whether it sticks. To somebody else you've never met. And that's what the governor and attorney general are are in the midst of doing right now, and they're basically you know, Here's the ironic thing, though, when you really think about it is his racism is AH is another morning thought against somebody else's skin color, Basically right. It's a short term explanation, but I think pretty pretty accurate and what it did matter. Yeah, it doesn't. It's I don't see it practiced. I really don't And I'm sure there are there are cases of it. But how dare she stand up and accuse every white person in Michigan basically of being a racist. That's that's a pure There's a lot more stealing your life than your skin color. No. That's right. And you have you fought to create that. You're absolutely right. Yeah. Everybody has on DH has control of their own destiny in our country. Hey, appreciates call. Thank you. So very, very much, Gary. And Ah, we'll head out into Detroit right now. Super see days on the line. Great. Maybe whether soup how you doing, pal? I'm pretty good in yourself. How you doing today? Frank? I'm doing fine today. I don't have to listen to the governor called me a racist against Well, um I'm going to make sure call earlier next time, but Most definitely on the opposite side of your opinion. Wait. Hold on. Hold on. Hold on. Do you think I'm a racist? Frank, If you let me finish what I'm saying, is you just days, everybody. She didn't say everyone, so the only people should be offended. Are the ones that are Racists. Now, here's the thing. If she is doing it for political reason, then that would mean that if she gets the black vote, which I don't think she's doing for political reasons, But let's just entertain your ideology, and she's doing it to get the black vote. She's going to lose. Don't buy votes. She's going to offend people just like he's offending. So she's not going for political reasons because she would get the backpack. She would get the black vote and that she would lose. Ah, lot of the white vote. Thea think she's She's doing it for. The right reason. She may be off a little bit here and there, but at least he's trying. But here's the thing, though, to Frank, that what I want to talk about schooling. One lady called up and she called herself talking about what minorities need What we need. Let us decide what we need. Let us decide If we want to send our kids to school. Let us decide if it's safe, safe, safe enough for our kids and our people in our household. You don't speak the African Americans. You need more African Americans calling in on your show. Most definitely to give the right perspective from African Americans way don't discriminate in anyway. African Americans, white people, Chinese doesn't matter whoever calls calls and they're given the same chance to get on the errors. Everyone else So you have no problem there and look if our audience don't don't speak for African Americans, people please do not do that. We're going to pick us up, but we'll hear from, you know you should I totally agree with you. You should speak for yourself. And you know, people don't have a right to just assume what you feel and you know, but it's tough. When you got to understand they're supers. It's tough for for people. Well, you just say for whites OK to put themselves in the shoes of somebody who has faced that kind of discrimination because The most far we have not faced it, okay? I'm not talking about discrimination right now Talking about the schooling thing that I mean, we we need more laptops in the homes. Oh, yeah, I do. But I don't believe that We should not rush the kids back to school. We want to make sure it's totally safe. Now we have a vaccine. It's on the way. So let's not rush people. Let's not just rush our kids back to school, so I'm with the governor right now. Let's give.

"And one thing. That's surprising is although we we hold the Lewis and Clark expedition in such high regard today, it only became popular relatively recently like fifty years ago, or so I think when these men return they expected like a hero's. Welcome right. And it just never really came and Mary weather Lewis. In fact, his death has been a source of much speculation. But one very plausible one is that he kind of spiraled into despair and self doubt. And that he alternately took his own life in quite outlandish fashion walk through. Yeah. Well, so Thomas Jefferson himself had reported that Lewis is family had a history of depression, bipolar disorder specifically, and that he himself Lewis had been suffering from this condition. Himself since he was a child, and here's a quote from article on history dot N, D dot gov, where Jefferson says this governor Lewis had from an early life been subject to hypochondriac affections. It was a constitutional disposition in all the nearer branches of the family of his name. It was more immediately inherited by him from his father while he lived with me in Washington. I observed at times sensible depressions of mind, but knowing their constitutional source. I estimated their course by what I had seen in the family. This is really interesting because this idea of mental illness having such stigma it's still around today. Sure it hasn't gotten that much better. So back in these days is certainly wouldn't have been something you would have talked about. But yes, he suffered from these great highs and great lows, and the story of his demise goes like this. Oh show. Also mentioned just injury Jack that he his rediscovered letters show that he had written his will before the journey, and he also attempted suicide. On the expedition, but was restraint. Good. A good thing. He had his broS around him to kind of hold him pull back from the legis FO's. So what happened? How how did he has a way? So the story goes like this. He had booked himself a room at an end Attaran and he shot himself. But that didn't take because I guess, I don't know maybe this little musket balls. Those those guys always discharge properly, maybe just didn't wasn't a deathblow. And so he did it again. And that didn't quite take either. So he decided to go to sleep. He went to sleep and he woke up not dead. And then he apparently ran out into the hallway and said, quote, give me some water and heal my wounds and all the guests were freaking out. And he went back to sleep and then woke up and someone witnessed him quote, cutting himself from head to foot. So it took about twelve hours of time. Two bullets a little bit of sleep and a blade for Lewis to finally die. And that is like some tortures of the damned kind of stuff right there. Because Lord self-inflicted is is the belief, right? This was at the Grinder's stand. His on the notches trace and believe he had one gun shot in the head one to the gut and said he ran out and scared the hell out of everyone Nashville newspaper reported that his throat was cut. There is one complicating factor here money that he had borrowed from guy a major Gilbert Russell to complete the journey was missing. The plot thickens. The plot thickens and Thomas Jefferson, as you pointed out along with some modern historians generally accepted, the idea that Lewis died of suicide, but there's still a debate. There's still people who say it was homicide for. One reason or another that is pretty fascinating. It does seem like the groundwork was laid for him having already demonstrated suicidal tendencies, but this whole missing money business. The only muddies the water, so he might have spent it because of the historian Paul Russell cut right completely believes this was suicide, and he has a pretty detailed take down in the murder slash robbery theory. He says Lewis had a lot of debt. He was a heavy drinker. He may have been using morphine and opium. He was running late preparing the expedition's journals publishing he just couldn't get a romantic partner. And he was on the outs with Thomas Jefferson, their relationship was going downhill, so he's saying that it's plausible that Lewis given his history right has his own mental struggles he's saying it's more plausible that Lewis eventually took his own life..

"WJR A lot of that forty thousand plus classic cars out there on Woodward with over a, million, people lining each side between Ferndale. And Pontiac and the mayors. Are with us from Ferndale Berkeley Birmingham in Royal Oak mayor Mike foreign What? What, was your first car that you. Own. The first car owned was a five speed Chevy? 'Send Ringo. Was that considered to be a kind of car that you would maybe drag race on Woodward on Friday and Saturday nights Warren I appreciate the question No comment okay wait any laws that you may have broken now, have expired That is true I. Guess. The statute of limitations I know mayor Coulter's a? Lawyer so Yeah. We're over there in Ferndale but let, me test your your your your, Royal Oak history as, long as we're on that subject. The city incorporated is a village then is the city, I think in, nineteen twenty one why was it named Royal Oak mayor for a well in a nutshell we had some explorers here vetting out this, land that was once kind of swampy out on the horizon came a giant oak tree and. It reminded the explorers of the great Royal Oak over the big island in the Atlantic, and so that's how we. Got our name real and it was territorial governor Lewis Cass who is serving these expeditions and I think that. That tree that large oak. Tree was. Located were now the present day intersection of. Crooks, Rochester and main would be that's. Right that's exactly where we have a placard there unfortunately the the. Tree Couldn't survive. You know you know another century and but we do, have a plaque, there and we you know we're proud of our history here as well and we're proud of the fact that Royal Oak even prior, to the automobile was a major stop along the way for trains you know going back and. Forth between Detroit and Pontiac and you know we've always been sort of this transportation hub, so to speak in the. Meantime what about the costs the amount of money you spend versus what kind of do you have you figured. Out the income generated by. The million. Plus people who line Woodward avenue what that. Does, to your economy You know that's. A great, question I mean certainly it's a positive impact in you know the math is always challenging for anyone to really. Figure out, and you know there's a cost. Of having a good time and we we love to celebrate our automotive heritage. Would love, bringing in, showcasing what a great community we are here in. Royal Oak and certainly there's a cost to that but you know all good things have a cost and the. One thing we can't put a cost or price on. His public safety I know you brought. That up, before and hats off to all the agencies working along with word to our, Royal police, department and fire department you know the number, one priority is keeping people safe and and I just like a quick PSA for everyone out there you know we all have. A and, safety it's all our responsibility and just make sure you know, cruising in good times go together you know cruising and alcohol. And cruising and, reckless driving don't so, let's make the job a little easier for all the men and women? In uniform keeping a safe today and what about you mayor Andrew Harris there in, Birmingham what was your first car Actually. Warrant a Chevy trailblazer which I will say that I use to drive up and down Woodward from Birmingham to. Detroit to attend a Wednesday law school so go go. Back a few years there Well. And that's. Certainly a good transition because Chevrolet is they're? Pretty much at the end of what old Woodward when it meets new order that's been kind of their area where. They show off, the cars I. Think what was it a couple of. Years ago I, saw a Camaro maybe the first Camaro they put it, under glass to show off the the history of it that's exactly right right at. That there's a triangle yuck grassy area there as you said we're. Woodward meets old Woodward in once again this, year, that will be our. Sevi- display until, you'll see all kinds, of historic Chevy vehicles I don't know if my Chevy trailblazer is going to be there you can see old Chevy Camaro you mentioned yeah no doubt about that. And and we we talk about Birmingham Birmingham Was part, of if I'm not mistaken we're talking history here part of land that was ceded. By native American tribes to something called the United States government and. The treaty of Detroit I think it was, in, eighteen o seven you. Recall that history, mayor Harris there in, Birmingham I have read. About that history in addition to the. Other a major events we talked about earlier in the, interview today this is actually our bicentennial Birmingham the city was founded by John hunter in eighteen eighteen of course we're in twenty. Eighteen, now the city became incorporated in nineteen thirty three but this is our bicentennial celebration year you get the I. Remember talking one person years ago, but there's always going to be one or two mayor Coulter there over in Ferndale that are very unhappy with the dream cruise again it's only one, day. You got a million and a half people coming in generating. A lot of revenue costing the is a little. Bit too but they they're upset or some are because it it hurts their business on a Saturday on the third Saturday in August every year. Mayor Coulter well yes and I say war. And I'm really impressed by your knowledge local history Well Thank. You And, sure it's, you know all the festivals that we do here in Ferndale we actually do quite a few of them pose an inconvenience to some folks to businesses. And others but we have found over the years if the attention that it brings to, our community the visitors that are bringing in then come back on another day after they discovered something in Ferndale come back on another weekend to follow up has has more than offset, that inconvenience but sure you can't put out an event. Like this all right near the festivals that we do without some amount of Your first? Car mayor Coulter, I learned, to drive in a nineteen seventy-one Pontiac grand prix big bucket seats big engine a lot of fun you know what now that you mentioned the grand.
