Rv trip and we were fine riley. We made it work. We were able to end up getting into all the parks. Wanted to through cancellations. I had to call and bank on cancellations but a ton of people cancel. I mean what's wild is. Can you were mentioning the koa. You went to those full so we stayed at koa yesterday in grand junction. Koa holiday probably one of the more popular parks totally sold out. We got a cancellation so we got in awesome. But then i was amazed while we were there three or four sites empty they just never showed up. And so had you show someone driven and they would have been fine.

"I would like to start by introducing you to nikki. tomlinson nikki. Tomlinson is an icu. Nurse at great plains health which is in north platte nebraska. At one point in time we had a physician here that everybody knew really well known him for a long time. Then a family doctor for a long time. That was my lowest point I still get teary thinking about it That i've been a nursing for twenty years and that was actually my breaking point. I when he didn't make it i had to. I already had some time off scheduled in that couldn't come at a better time I couldn't get through the next day of work without breaking down for an hour Our every hour was that was probably my darkest time at work. My darkest time over and my last twenty years of nursing so that was a. I was hard and then seeing some other family and friends come in That have fought this. That have beat this. That are scared along the way and other patients. That just aren't making it. I've never seen anything like cova. There's i we don't we just don't know enough about it. We learn new things every day and it seems like things change every day and i it. Just that's the one thing. That's constant about covid fluctuate senate changes and we just learn new things all the time. And that's what makes it scary. I've been a nurse for twenty years. And i've never experienced out like this. It's we're working. Extra shifts were working. We do great as a team but the the stress the emotional stress the physical stress that it is putting on us being there for the patients. Which is what we got into nursing. Four we're the only ones that can be there for some of these patients that most emotional stress losing them. is just. I've never experienced anything like it before. So the emotional and the physical stress. It's exhausting absolutely exhausting. I don't know how we are getting through it. We are but. I don't know how what i'm thankful for right now. During all this time is my health. My fellow coworkers health and my family know my family understanding how many how i have to work the long hours and not always be home during all of this And adapting to a can't touch mommy when you get home or to run and take a shower and And their health.

She is going to recover the people who i'm really worried about. I'm thinking about even as we're going through our own experiences beyond everybody who's sick and suffering right now. Susan has been these past couple of weeks beyond the eighty thousand plus americans who are in the hospital right now with kovic. The most we've ever had mean beyond the people who are suffering directly themselves trying to fight for their lives with this thing that people are really worried about the healthcare workers who are all over the country right now. We're staring down both barrels of this without the kind of support that they had in the spring when this all started with this now just tidal wave of cases and hospitalizations and deaths all coming down on them directly and personally in a way that does not feel sustainable in terms of them being able to keep doing it and terms of keeping them back stop keeping them supplied keeping them at work keeping the american health system open and able to function so frankly not to be too blunt about it but so save abol people can be saved. That's what i'm worried about. Is our health workers right now in the strain on them this many months into it with things. This bad right now i mean. Here's the front page. Today of the atlanta journal constitution. And you see the mix there right. I mean politically. Of course the big news out of georgia is that georgia. This is this morning's papers.

Ads rethink traditional thanksgiving below that. There's the biggest front page headline in atlanta. Today it makes me shake with anger. That's a quote from a doctor who works in a covert war in atlanta talking about people blowing off the risk as the number skyrocket and as the hospitals get overwhelmed. You see their healthcare workers on the front lines feel. They are fighting a losing battle as public floats safety rules. That's georgia today. It's the same song up in minnesota. Today this is the west central tribune in willmar minnesota front page headline today. A plea for help. Hospitals are perilously close to running out of workers. It's one thing to run out of beds beds can be found in moved and bought but enough healthcare staff to take care of patients who are in those beds.

Positive is reportedly isolating hope that he doesn't get symptoms so far apparently doesn't god blessed and maybe the president's eldest son who has such a high profile in the republican party now and in conservative media. Now maybe that will have an impact on thinking about this thing at the white house and in the conservative media on the right maybe even if the president himself getting it didn't seem to light a fire under them. I don't know but as overwhelming as this crisis is we are avoidably at this moment in history where we have two huge totally unprecedented crises. Heading simultaneously the minneapolis star tribune.

"Goto wyotech dot CTU. 303713 85 85 is the telephone number and we're going to start it with pole in Grand Junction. Hello, Paul. You're on Broncos react. Great to be on and I'm going to take some of your advice. Never get too excited about A, uh, A win was devastated by the loss or two critical about a tough wind. It was a very good way. Obviously the Broncos have a lot of injuries, but that's true across the board in NFL way we've been in or out of place legitimate chances to win. Um people of it. So that being said, you know, we need to finish and I know these players getting paid. They know they need finished, too. And I just have a half. I mean, a couple of drops in the hands of that hurts, but we have the chance to put this game away. Even in the conventional way of just running the ball with three we have minutes and we throw up a deep mama. Sure, take some accountability. To how how I hoped we would lose a lot did well, like you say the numbers one great. You try to make up for drops. But then he's on the diagram of the play. I don't need to deal with that time. Yeah, I get that call. I get that that point and I probably end even in the past before that on the Siri's before that when He and Patrick were were not on the same page on the route. The Patriots got that first interception in the in the in the late stages, the first of those two I probably would have run the ball little bit, but But I will say this and this thought crossed my mind and tell me what you think we have. At the same time I've heard people if it works, it's a good play call. If it doesn't, then it's not a good play call, right. And so from that standpoint, yes, Pat Shurmur and the guys that the players, you know, obviously need to clean that up. But just from the standpoint of the play call we have heard How? Why are the Broncos just running the ball there in situations like that? Why aren't they doing being more creative? And why? And and part of the explanation was well, they're missing a lot of guys. They're missing some key guys, their backup quarterbacks in there. They don't have Courtland Sutton, you know? Well, now you have drew lock and you've been able to get some things done down the field. So I understand, I guess why the calls were made I probably would have called a run or to myself, but then again, I'm not. I'm not a coach, right? I guess it just takes me back to what was that a team where we have a chance to put away the Ravens and until you're even though we know not to get it. I mean, I'm Completely the other way back then, But then this time I'm complaining that we're throwing it, But I still those that we should around the ball, not heated up and walk around the play. I just leased. We could have taken off of a minute. And then it would help us a lot. Yeah. Good thoughts, Paul. I appreciate it and I on face value, and by that, I mean, just given this situation without Without diagnosing the X's and O's. And what coverage might have been in place and all the rest. I don't disagree that I also won't go to the extreme of saying it was a horrible call. This certainly the first one. There was a miscommunication, obviously, and and they're able to learn those lessons in a win, and I think there's That's Ah, That's certainly good If they lose the game, and I think Ryan pointed this out, then Yeah, then it's then it's different and you're It's just It's obviously a bigger deal. I'm not going to quibble, I I'm not going to I'm not going to say it was an extreme. I'm not just say it was a mistake because I don't believe that. I guess I would quibble with it a little bit, but I will defer And hopefully I just like the fact that the Broncos took shots downfield. I guess that's what I'm trying to articulate. I like the fact that they opened it up a little bit with their number one quarterback and weren't afraid to do that. 303713 85 85. Paul. Thanks for the call. We're going to sneak Bill in in Los Angeles. Hello, Bill Europe. Hey, Mike. Always a pleasure. Thanks for taking my call. Long time. No talk, man. This 2020 season is is really strange in a lot of ways, no doubt, no doubt. Obviously my three points on a question, So let me start out with the three points or Lindsey lock. Offensive energy defense is clutch the managed his money. Then my question So going to Lindsey and lock they brought energy. I mean, help Lindsay wass challenging and we have missed him with that turf toe injury. And what now builds great to see him back again today and just running like he always has. He ran with a with a purpose today. He really did. And drew lock in the huddle. And then coming out, injust, orchestrating often sure we didn't get any touchdowns but point of Patriots and Belichick and there's always tough to play there. So even to get a win 18 to 12, albeit AH, nail biter were special was really special, and I was glad to see that Defense clutch. I mean like this, she'll be. Harris threw the election defense. Three turnovers, interception, couple fumbles and come back to live 101 yard rushing. Awesome. And Alberto Crew are great catches, woman it down the middle again. I know it was mentioned earlier couple drop passed to the end zone. Hey, we're young team. Um, it's gonna happen and and that's and then grievance. McManus. Um, six field goals. I mean, ah Denver Bronco record, and we need every single one of six field goals and this guy's money. This guy is absolute money. I'm like that brings me to my question. The 17 days off. And due to the virus and rescheduling. Do you feel it? It will motivate Denver the rest of season or, well, then down due to the fact that we don't have a true by we do you think? Mike? Yeah, Bill I I appreciate the call. I don't think it's I think they just taken it is as it comes, so I think it's Kind of neither..

Firefighters Battle Massive Fires In Colorado
"More than two thousand firefighters are battling four major blazes in Colorado. Michael Hayden is incident commander for a wildfire in the northern part of the state we're working with the other fires right now trying to share resources we said just about everything we have out and recalling from resources all over the nation. Colorado public radio reporter Michael Elizabeth Sacrifice joins us from the town of Eagle that's near a large fire in western. Colorado. Hi there. Hi there. Thanks for having me on. So tell me exactly where you are what you can see what's happening there. I'm not far from Dot Sarah which was one of the areas on pre evacuation notice which means folks need to be ready to leave at any moment the Grizzly creek fires burning in a canyon nearby about a mile east of glenwood springs and this Canyon is one of Colorado's natural treasures. One firefighter I spoke with described seeing it burn as heartbreaking. This fire has shut down interstate seventy, which is the main east-west highway into and through the mountain communities, and this shutdown is causing major issues for businesses and commuters, and because of this is the number one fire priority the nation to try and get it contained and the highway has been shut down for more than a week already. So the number one priority in the nation. But as we mentioned, there's three other big fires in Colorado right now, what's going on with those? Yeah more than one hundred and thirty thousand acres have burned in total and a few hundred people are evacuated some from their homes others from campsites and trails. There hasn't been any structure loss yet firefighters are working really hard to try and keep that from happening short the playing. The penguins fire north of Grand. Junction is now the fourth largest fire in Colorado's recorded history and these fires are hardly contained all at this point and it's really smoky close to these fires especially. But around the whole state, the State Health Department has issued an air quality alert for the front range and surrounding counties, which warns that at risk folks especially should stay inside let children older adults in those with heart or lung disease. Yeah. I was GONNA ask how the pandemic is affecting all this. How what do we know about how covid nineteen may be affecting? Either the people trying to flee the fires of the the firefighters trying to fight them. Right, the State Health Department warns that there is an overlap the people who are most impacted by wildfire smoke are the people who are most at risk for the worst symptoms of Corona virus. The state said the meeting of Kobe nineteen and the smoke is quote a real public health issue. Some research has shown that exposure to air pollution can worsen the outcomes of catching the virus, and while fire smoke can irritate weakened the lungs and immune system making someone more susceptible to infection the state suggestion to stay inside to avoid the smoke they say is now even more important because it can also help stop the spread of Code Nineteen as well. What do we know by the way about what has caused these Colorado I? Let's see Mr with me. Start Your back high. I was asking about the cause of the first. Yeah. Going there under an investigation, the largest fire was caused by lightning. And right now in the Grizzly Creek fire, the canyon fire was likely sparked by a chain dragging on the highway or maybe a cigarette out the window at originated in traffic. But what's really fueling these fires statewide drought and heat, and we haven't really seen those monsoon rains just yet. Right thank you so much for your reporting. Stay safe. Appreciate it thanks for having me on. That is reporter Michael Elizabeth sacrifice with Colorado public radio.

Bureau of Land Management Defends Move to Oil-And-Gas Town in Colorado

Trump is actually doing it is administration is moving the headquarters of the Bureau of land management the Federal Agency that oversees drilling mining and recreation on about a tenth of all land in the US. The agency's main foot main office is now in a traditional oil and gas town in Colorado. Npr's Kirk siegler reports the new headquarters a long way from Washington DC. Like nine thousand nine hundred miles to the small western Colorado City of Grand Junction here. It's impossible to ignore. You are surrounded by federal public.

You can't help but notice when you walk in. This office is right next to the Colorado oil and gas the Kogo Office and I'm just thankful it's not a marijuana dispensary. There's no dearth of pot shops around here but the agency says it's also hard to find an office space where the industry doesn't have a presence. Grand Junction is surrounded by public lands. That produce a lot of oil and natural gas. You know frankly. Let's be real. The oil patch can always afford to fly to Washington and sit down with somebody in Washington.

Commissioner Rose Puglisi pushed hard for the relocation we have great relationships with our local field offices but ultimately we've learned that the decisions are made in Washington DC where they don't really even know where Mesa County is or the impacts of their decisions on our economy. Puglisi is a Republican but there has been some bipartisan support in Colorado Anyway for the relocation in part because the government is moving higher paying leadership. Jobs out here but mostly.

But he thinks that's by design.

"That was interior. Secretary David Bernhardt touting that we're getting more energy out of less land. What he isn't saying. Whether the L will definitely move its headquarters to Colorado or when that could happen. Republican congressman got tipped in hopes it does happen. And he joins us now. Get morning. Congressman. Good morning. Good to be with you. Thanks for being on with this. Of course, I'm biased. I love the idea of being on the western slope in grand junction. I'm sure you like the idea as well. You know, we do we've seen a tremendous effort made by the community over in grand junction to be identify infrastructure to make sure that a move by the OM to the west would be workable in grand junction. The beat the best location. The governor though, has said that Denver is the most likely site, even though he would prefer it to be grand junction. Why not Denver? Well, we wanna make sure that when we're having to be and being closest to Hawaiian that they're managing in a good central location for Boyens throughout the west grand junction of the obvious choice. We're making sure that we've got infrastructure and play community is reached out to the airlines in terms of being able to make sure that we can get flights that are going to be necessary to be able to get. Back to Washington to all the efforts being made in grand junction. And we hope we'll be able to get good bipartisan support to be able to promote that with the secretary. Hey, congressman on that note, are most of the people, especially the western governors, are they great with the idea of feel good about it? Even if it may be isn't into their state, at least that it should be westward because the land is out our way makes most sense to have the Bill out here where the land is there was obviously movements that were going on in Utah, Wyoming visited with Liz, Cheney on it. They've loved to be able to see it there, but we're a good simple located in Colorado for all the lands. And I think when we look at the location in grand junction that's going to be the best spot. Can you quantify what it means for jobs? And for the economy there, in grand junction, able, I appreciate you bringing that up when we talked about the economic recovery Denver metropolitan areas been doing great. But a lot of our rural areas of continued to struggle for just now starting to see the real economic. Momentum going on to be able to bring the west that provides economic opportunity in our communities would open the door actually for some other agencies fish and wildlife perhaps to be able to move out west as well. It'd be narrative away, and that they have to manage our communities could use that type of support and something that will encourage and I'm assuming dove tailing off, what April said a better use of resources to from the government, because you'll have, again, people here, managing the land, better use of our tax dollars in the process. You know, I think that's probably one of the big concerns that has it really been addressed. Because when we're working really using the resources wisely, just adept in between Washington DC, and we're deal. I'm lanes primarily located which are in the west, the scoring creating opportunity to be able to get some cost efficiencies and better results for the people who live there as well. Congressman, we're going to run at that. Thanks for the few minutes. We got with you. Thank you property owners in Stapleton can start voting today on whether the development, should get a new name, members of Stapleton's master community association have a month to return their ballots. The rename Stapleton for all groups supporting making that change. But says this vote may not reflect everyone living in Stapleton right now, we're talking live with board chair Lewis stone, accor-. Good morning. Good morning. But we're, we're people aware of, of mayor Stapleton's history before, this voter was this brought to their attention about these connections with the KKK years and years ago. Off and on actually since I think the late nineteen nineties, there have been folks in Denver, who has brought up the history of Benjamin stable than I so I would say that it's something that is probably folks who currently live in the community today since since Stapleton. It's actually a lot of a lot of residents were not necessarily Denver native. They might not have been aware of the history of Benjamin Stapleton. And so there have been groups most recently in two thousand fifteen black lives matter of fifty to eighty fired the neighborhood to make folks aware of the clan history, and the connection to need. Benjamin Stapleton membership in the Klan but it actually goes back much earlier than that. And that's actually how the community declarations of the masterpiece unity association actually have that process or how to change that community name mess. Because in the early two thousand folks brought up this issue. And about a community name that is connected to a clansman. And so that, that's why there's a provision in between declarations. You know, was from folks bringing that issue actually from the very beginning of this community. We also heard a lot about it when Walker Stapleton was running for governor and kept getting brought up. We've read that your membership. Your association includes homeowners who are primarily white. Do they have the same version to the name, Stapleton, their black counterparts would have do you think? I think you would have to ask the community members vote is about it is. Yes, I think that demographically Staples in property owners are majority white, but also I, I am not a black property owner. I am a mixed person of color, a property owner and I see this issue, even if it doesn't have personally affected me I take seriously. The folks who said that this disassociation of this name is harmful to them and hurts them. And so, you know, as a neighbor and trying to be good neighbor, I wanna listen to people's concerns. And so, I think that's the demographics of, of the neighborhood do not necessarily determine the outcome up the votes. She's with rename Stapleton for all board chair list on this. Thank you for your time. Thank you. Good to have you those ballots go out this week, we should know in the next month or so, what that community decides to do with the name nine forty eight.
