And you might want to write it down since we're taking some calls, this last hour of the year, 8 7 7 three 8 one three 8 one one 8 7 7 three 8 one three 8 one one it is near the end of the year and I really do think you should have your input. I've got a pile of stuff here and I'm thinking it's so negative. No, I think we'll hold off on that for now. Let's just take some of you folks. Let's go to Caleb. Louisville, Kentucky XM satellite Caleb, how are you my friend? Hello, Mark. Hello. Hey, I just wanted to tell you this is my first time calling in and I've been listening to you for years and years. And I love your show. I really hope that you have a Merry Christmas and that you're you have a safe Christmas and I actually pulled over on the side of the road. I'm headed down to Florida on vacation, but I just wanted to tell you that you are amazing. You're very knowledgeable, very informative and hilarious as well. Christopher's song were that makeover because the song you played. Well, thank you, my wife, and my mother in law get very angry at me. So I know I play that at some risk, you know. But so what? I enjoy it. Caleb, I want to thank you. Be very, very careful in your drive What town are you headed toward? I'm headed toward fort Walton beach, Florida. I know where it is. It's on the east coast sort of northern, correct? Yes. Yes. It's a very nice area. So it's a suburb. It's really booming now. You're thinking of moving there? I would love to eventually. It would be a wonderful state to live in. You're not kidding. All right, Caleb, you be safe. Thank you, my friend. Let's go to Tyler. Grand Junction Colorado, the great K and Z Z, Tyler, go right ahead, sir. Yes, Mark. I just want to say God bless you for everything you do for us. Out there. And I told your call screener that I am a fishing guide out in Colorado. So I'm really familiar with what's going on with all the government tyranny from both the state and federal governments out here in the west regarding our voting access. To our lakes, I can't even hardly get a permit to guide on any of the lakes. I mean, I have two permits and by the grace of God living doing what I love, but they are systematically shutting down our lakes to voting access for all sorts of dubious biological excuses and they're putting up spike strips and locked gates, so we can't even launch at night or early in the morning when the fishing is still good. So it hurts my bottom line as a guide because I depend on getting out there early in the morning And. Here's what I look at this, Tyler. And more and more people are going to be affected. Their businesses, their livelihoods, their employment, their bottom line in terms of what it is they want to do with their lives. I look at the circle of liberty around us that Alexis to tug fill used to tell me, and it shrinking and shrinking and getting tighter and tighter. They keep telling us what we can do and telling us what we can't do. And they use they use climate change and the environment as an excuse to destroy like what you're doing and to destroy so many things related to it, destroying tire industries, they have figured out if you can regulate air and regulate water and regularly land, you can regulate everything. Nobody's against common sense regulations, but we're well beyond that. You know, this isn't 1912. This is 2022. And what people are trying to do now is because they're extremists, they're radicals, are to push human behavior out of nature. Out of nature. What guns and bullets are after, and taking boats? I mean, basically, if you make a boat, particularly in the ocean on the if you make a boat, if you're forcing them to go as slow as you say, they become useless. You know this better than I do. They can't use them. And they're not killing whales. It's a lie. Go ahead, I'm sorry. No. You're right on the money. It's all executive by really what, like you've always said, the unconstitutional fourth branch of government, the administrative state. And at the federal level, my great congresswoman Lauren boebert has tried to help me get a permit for the Colorado River, which is one of the biggest rivers in the United States, even here. And I can't get a permit because they say it's too crowded. And that's a complete and utter lie. You can go out there and count four or

"Asked for help from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Lukewarm in November station KU and C spoke with some of the unlucky travelers. Jackie king and a group of 14 Friends launched their rafts into the Colorado River in early May. The trip started smoothly, other than it being unseasonably warm. But when they ran into other rafters, they were warned. Norovirus was sweeping through the canyon. By day 9, one person in king's group was sick. Stomach troubles. After patient zero, it was one to two people a day going down. Our worst day was when we ran upset rapid. Upset is a huge roiling whitewater rapid, right in the middle of the canyon. We had three people go down almost instantly after we got through the rapid. People vomiting over the side of the boat just couldn't hold anything in. King became ill that same day. Her group had a military grade metal rocket box to use as a toilet. That's required of all rafters to store human waste from the three weeklong trip. And there's what's getting a lot of use. You're sitting on a rocket box in the outdoors in the middle of nowhere, hogging a bucket, and it's about as uncomfortable as you can imagine. King's group wasn't alone in its misery. Justice burkitt and his wife backpacked the canyon two weeks after king floated through. I would say about two hours after I started drinking the water from the river, my stomach was in tremendous pain. Like it felt like there was like a balloon being blown up from inside of me. That was like being overfilled. Both king and burkitt were part of what a new CDC report calls the largest documented outbreak of norovirus in the Grand Canyon backcountry. From April to June of this year, there were more than 200 confirmed cases, and likely a lot more that went uncounted. Sharon Hester is with Arizona raft adventures, which outfits trips in the canyon. She says a few of their guides got sick this spring. And it can be tough to keep germs from spreading even in the great outdoors. What they do is try to put them in a boat where they're the only one rowing or there's only person in that boat, or if there's someone else sick, it would be the sick boat. Where everybody would try to stay away. Hester says norovirus has been a problem in the canyon for years. The virus can live in the river's tepid water. And then easily spread among groups who all use the same toilets and eat communally. The CDC report says the virus can even survive in beach sand, where rafters set up camps, allowing it to spread between trips. As the number of tourists visiting the national park has grown and outbreaks have become more frequent over the years. Hester says raft companies have been forced to change protocols. Don't vomit in the river vomit in a garbage bag. You know, isolate people hand washing, you know, it got more and more strict, making sure the water was always purified. By the time janky king's group of 15 people got off the river, all but four in her group had come down with norovirus. Even with all of the stomach trouble, would it keep her away from another Grand Canyon trip? Oh no, no, I am chomping at the bit to go back down. And have a different experience. A trip where no one has to hug a bucket. For NPR news, I'm Luke runyon in Grand Junction Colorado.

"Are now visible. Is that a bone? What the heck? This system provides drinking water to 40 million people, and this reservoir is so low that it's dam could lose the ability to produce hydropower in a little more than a year. That's why in June, the federal government said states had to make unprecedented cuts to their use. We feel the urgency, they should feel the urgency. That's Tanya trujillo and assistant secretary at the interior department. She and other federal water managers said that if the states couldn't come up with a plan for those cuts by an August deadline, the federal government would take action to protect the river system. But last week, that deadline came and went and still no plan. While the federal government did announce small cuts for Arizona, Nevada and Mexico that were already on the books, it's still not clear what action they'll take to prevent the reservoirs from crashing. Our water users really would like to understand the federal government when they say if you don't take action states, we will. Well, what are the actions being proposed? Andy Muller is general manager of the Colorado River district in western Colorado. He says that even though the federal government hasn't delivered on their threat to intervene, they still could. The cuts they asked for were clear. Two to 4 million acre feet. But the threat of what happens if the states can't get there, still isn't. If you don't know what that threat is, it's really hard to be motivated to take action. A version to federal intervention runs deep along the Colorado River. Some state leaders say the feds should simply run the dams and not wait and to policy making. But as the crisis has deepened in recent years, others in the basin are beginning to crave federal leadership. I think it would be much more effective if the federal government actually in writing articulates a plan. John and singer is in charge of the southern Nevada water authority, which serves the Las Vegas metro area. When the states couldn't reach a plan, he pleaded with federal officials to take the reins and make hard decisions about where some of the cuts need to come from. The state's have never accomplished anything meaningful without a credible federal threat. In response to the charge that they should be doing more, federal water managers said they're going to continue working with states on a plan for cutbacks. No new deadline has been set. Catherine Sorenson, a water policy researcher at Arizona state university, says if the federal government were to take drastic action, it could alienate people in states that rely on the river. But if the feds don't take action, the risk falls on the reservoirs. No one wants to make this call, right? It's not enviable to be in a position of saying who gets water and who doesn't. Someone eventually will be in that position. Sorensen says, whether it's the federal government, the states, or the users themselves. For NPR news, I'm Luke runyon in Grand Junction, Colorado

"There's no one to call except your inner strength and your own relationship with yourself and your abilities. Yeah, that's such an interesting frame, right? Because if you think about probably the most intrinsically rewarding moments of life are also the moments where we are most present in what we're doing, and then you think about what you just described, you know, when you step in the water, you have to be there. It's not about because if you're not, you're going to get tossed around. And you may end up in a bad place. But as soon as you step out of that environment, into the car with the protection to life with the protection, we can basically pay to buy enough protection to not have to be present in almost every other part of our lives. And you wonder, on one hand, what are we actually buying ourselves into and out of? I completely agree with that. Even having a phone conversation, you're checking email, checking Twitter and checking Instagram. We are constantly padded if the phone conversation is boring. We have all these other means to entertain ourselves, but in the ocean, again, that really goes out the window. And it's that it's that safety net coming loose from you that I find so liberating. And I think that's another reason why when you're surfing or when you're swimming, or body surfing, freedom, or whatever, you are in that exact moment. You're not thinking when you're on a wave, maybe when you're waiting for ways for a half an hour, you think about work and all that. I've come up with my best ideas and those situations, but when you're actually on a wave, when you're within this activity, you are locked in to that microsecond of a moment, the entire way. And I think that that absolute focus and presence, at least in my life, and a lot of other people I know is really lacking. We're not going out and hunting for our food now. We have to be locked into that moment. When is the right time to or at least a lot of people aren't hunting their food. But I think that this is something that allowed humans to evolve is to have pure and utter focus on a moment. And so much as society now is built on not having that focus. No, so agree with that.

"Come to you outside today on a beautiful morning up at red rocks park overlooking the city just stopped buying climb the steps. What is one of the most gorgeous stunning concert venues in the world. Also one of the most beautiful places to photograph in the world which is kinda why. I'm here on the show today. We have an interview so big. It didn't fit into one episode. I have been a fan of photographer. Bob wick for years bob might have. What is the best job in the country. He takes beautiful pictures of america's public land's specifically bureau of land management land across the west. You may not know bob wick by name but you have almost certainly seen his work so as an amateur photographer myself. I was so excited when bob agreed to join us and talk about his remarkable career. Which oddly enough doesn't even officially include photography as part of his job description. So this is a two-parter this first episode is all about bob's career and how the bureau of land management has changed over the last thirty years and this is also video episode. You can find it on youtube or facebook there. You will get to see some of bob's best work as we talk about it. If you're listening to this podcast app that supports chapter markers you will probably see pictures as we go as well. But please don't look down if you're driving And then next week we're going to do a bonus episode diving into the nitty gritty of outdoor photography for photo geeks. Like me but first. Let's do the news. Interior secretary deb holland was here in colorado last week. Talking about a couple of bills that we have featured here on the podcast that includes the colorado wilderness act sponsored by congresswoman. Diana get as well as the colorado outdoor recreation economy act or core. Act from congressman. Goose and senator michael bennet but the main reason for the secretary's visit was looking at how to fix the bureau of land management headquarters remember. That's the building in grand junction colorado. Where a grand whopping three employees who were at the old headquarters in washington. Dc eventually moved after former interior secretary. David bernhardt effectively and intentionally broke the agency. Even today there are fewer than forty people working in that grand junction office. There are about eighty open and unfilled positions. So something is not not working here at all and the solution is a pretty obvious one to us. You just have to admit the whole thing was a failure. It was designed to force career expertise out. And it's time to rebuild the agency headquarters back in washington. Now it's understandable. That folks like senator bennett senator. John hickenlooper want to keep jobs in colorado. Even if it's just forty of them so secretary holland came out to grand junction to listen to be element -ployees to listen to members of the community before she decides what to do next and of course the bureau still doesn't have a senate confirmed director has not had one for four and a half years now but we are finally getting close. The senate energy and natural resources committee last week deadlocked ten ten on the nomination of tracy stone manning to run the bureau that vote said it to the senate which voted fifty to forty nine on tuesday afternoon to move her nomination to the senate floor head back one episode for the background on the really absurd character assassination campaign that is being waged against tracy. But i think there's another takeaway here that everyone needs to consider. The fight here truly is not over what tracy stone manning did or did not do with earth. I thirty years ago. The record there is clear. nothing new has come out..

"Wants to go back to D. C deserves it. Plenty of other people I talked with around Grand Junction also want the headquarters to remain here like resident D stance. See, I just loved it. We Would have the opportunity to have them here locally, and I think it truly makes more Sens. But others weren't so sure. Like Miranda Purcell, she'd heard the arguments that moving BLM headquarters out West would benefit the public lands the agency overseas. On the flip side, People said. Well, all the decisions are made in Washington, so it's putting them out here and I'm moving on from the conversation. So I don't know which one I agree with. One thing is certain Moving headquarters here is an economic boon to the area worth about $9 million a year in jobs alone, according to the Grand Junction Economic Partnership. Diane Shrinky heads the city's Chamber of commerce. That economic impact for us really, at this point comes primarily from those jobs and the and the multiplayer of those 40 plus employees. Multiplier, meaning the money the BLM employees would spend on goods and services that support other jobs in the area, and things have been challenging for the town. It used to rely more on the booms and busts of fossil fuel production, which hurt the community for years after the 2008 recession, But now, Shrinky says, they're diversifying into manufacturing and tourism. And they survived the pandemic in okay shape. I'm glad that I've actually seen our community in Mesa County survive the covid pandemic economically, much stronger than a lot of other places, and that has not been the traditional history of our community. It's not just people in Grand Junction, who went headquarters to remain. Colorado's Democratic governor, Jared Polis says he doesn't agree with how the move happened. But he wants headquarters to stay now that it's there. Aaron Weiss, with the nonprofit Center for Western Priorities, disagrees. He says the headquarters should be closer to lawmakers and other agencies. Everything BLM does involves interfacing with the Fish and Wildlife Service with the park service with the Department of Agriculture, which oversees the forest Service. But maybe there's a third way so the government doesn't have to choose between D C or Grand junction while I realistically a split, um, probably makes more sense.

I'm Madelyn Beck for marketplace. You know, Sometimes you make a promise with the best of intentions, but then Events just conspire against you. Such is the case today with me and this program and inflation been trying my darndest not to overwhelm things. With inflation stories, but we'll get the latest reading on the I word tomorrow morning when the Bureau of Labor Statistics graces us with the Consumer price Index for June. May, as you might or might not remember, showed the biggest annual increase in consumer prices 4.9% in 13 years. And here is why I'm telling you this housing is part of the CPI consumer price Index and housing prices have been rising like crazy as you know. So you think you might see that reflected in the monthly number, But the shelter component of inflation, as it's called, has actually stayed pretty steady for the past decade. Marketplaces Amy Scott went to try to figure out why To understand how the BLS measures housing inflation. I went straight to the source. I'm Steve Reed I'm an economist and the information analysis section of the Consumer Price index program at the Bureau of Labor Statistics. How's that for a government title reads job is to explain the C P and the data behind it to the public, he says. The goal of the CPI is to measure changes in the cost of living over time to do that. It tracks prices for a bunch of different things like gas, groceries, clothes and housing. The overall housing category includes furniture, appliances and utilities, even lodging away from home, But the biggest component is what we pay for our primary residents. The price of rental housing is easy. The index looks at changes in monthly rents, but most Americans own their homes, and that's where it gets tricky. When you purchase a home a large aspect of that purchases as an investment aspect. It's not a consumption aspect, and we are trying to measure the price change for consumption. To do that the bureau uses a calculation known as owners equivalent rent. The idea there is that if you're living in your home, your cost of sort of consuming the shelter provided by that home is what you're foregoing by not renting it. To somebody else. The CPS estimates owners equivalent rent by looking at actual rents for comparable homes in the same area. But remember, housing is just one item in that basket of goods. And because it takes up a bigger chunk of most of our budgets, it carries a bigger weight in the overall measure of inflation. Real rents and would be rents make up about a third of the C P. I to come up with that weight. The BLS surveys us about how much we spend on the items in the basket, including rent. And for homeowners. That's where we have to ask this question. If you were to rent your house. How much could have rent for seeing as how most homeowners probably don't spend a lot of time thinking about renting out their homes, they guess You may think all that guessing is why some economists have a problem with the way the CPI measures housing inflation. It's always around 2.5%. Regardless of the economic conditions. Jiro Yoshida is a business professor at Penn State University, He says it's not the guess is it's the hard numbers, the ones based on actual rents that distort the inflation rate. Renters who stay in the same place for a long time typically only see small increases every year. But when they move out, rents often jump a lot for the next tenant. Yoshida thinks the C P I has too few of those renters in the mix. That appreciation rate tend to be underestimating the reality because that survey misses the huge adjustment. Between long term tenants. Yoshida and some colleagues created a different measure of housing, inflation based on new leases, and voila. Between April and May We have 8.4% annualized inflation. That is significantly higher than 2.5%. CP I rent And if you plugged that bigger housing number into the overall CPI inflation in May would have been nearly half a percent higher. Not a small thing If you're on social Security, and your cost of living increase is pegged to the C P Or if it determines your annual raise at work. The BLS has tweaked its formula, but not enough, Yoshida says. And if you're wondering how all this measures up for the Fed, it uses a different index, which Yoshida says also underestimates housing inflation. But we've done enough for today..

"So i moved home from law school and i jumped in with dad and i helped cover the bases. I had like a minor in biblical studies at that point. My undergrad degrees were history philosophy. That kind of business. So so i helped out. I'm not sure. I was any good at it but helped cover those bases and was around church a little bit. Did one more round of that. But i understand this a little bit more because i got some real questions here so i went to seminary A good seminary one. I probably didn't have any business. Be an ad. I was definitely bringing down the average scholarly ability level of that place i went to. I went to trinity in chicago and That's where a lot of things really clicked being around that historical academic christian tradition where the bottom line of every class was not believe it. More be better behaved. Vote this way and just none of that game. The bottom line of everything was the a better scholar. Have more eyes. Wide open. Faith or not faith. That's where you end up and that stuck. That was that was the thing. That really stuck was the okay. I seen what it looks like to have modeled for me. Academically honest eyes wide open faith with varying degrees of an understanding of the threshold of on this issue or that issue. And i felt like i had permission at that point to to find my tribe and think really honestly about this stuff and not worry about letting people down. I took another church after my first graduate degree. That went very very badly.

"Goes over the bureau of indian affairs but also in terms of land the bureau of land management and national parks and there's a fraught long history around indigenous lands and public land's end have someone that is quite sensitive to that history understanding at and wanting to really put i think questions of environmental justice and climate justice in and have that really be guiding The department is such a remarkable change from having an oil and gas lobbyists in charge. Which is what we just got past So this is a remarkable great. I hope the great date for public land's end for native people Throughout the nation. And i've i find her story quite inspiring frankly more than most cabinet picks for sure. I mean what do we think that. So i guess if there was one knock on on how it is that she doesn't have a at least to my knowledge of the same kind of administrative experience over large agencies. That say marty walsh. We'll have a toyota labor. Let's say or or or others and You know in not matter. But i guess what i in wondering what what can a. What do you think in a concrete fashion. Having somebody like halid add interior like what could that achieved. Yeah so like. I said earlier in this conversation with with congress not making lots of changes in environmental policy. Lots of changes get written and the administration of those laws and so in that respect Cabinet secretaries kellyanne. Ask for new rules to be made. This happens every administration so she can oversee those sorts of things change how the endangered species act might be implemented or national policy. Act may be implemented I suspect based on what i'm seeing that relocation of the bureau of land management grand junction colorado. That could be reexamined to put the head of the om. Back in washington dc Closer to other administrative units that is important to cooperate with So i mean a cabinet secretary cannot do everything. It cannot pass cannot pass laws in congress but from identifying budget priorities to identifying rules that can be adapted and changed. I think that that's a lot and there's also just served the symbolic effort to move one. The biden administration's big goals as they call it the thirty for thirty. They're trying to get thirty percent of the land protected in some form or another by twenty thirty so having an indigenous person ahead of that i think is really a useful in someone. That's involved with Green new deal sort of legislation and Trying to stop make as many dollars out of the public lands As they can't which is not the mission of our plan system..

Coronavirus infection rates continue to rise in the U.S.
"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. I just hope it continues. But she's thankful for is her own health and the fact that her family doesn't have this. The family hasn't gotten it and she hopes that continues. That's what she's thankful for. Last night. i talked here about my own experience being home in quarantine. I tested negative. But i've been taking care of my partner. Susan while she sick i just wanna say to. Everybody reached out and was so nice. Response it was overwhelming. Actually was really kind. It was had to pick a word. I would say it was boolean to me and susan. So thank you everybody. But you know susan i will be are going to be okay. We are coming out of this. She is coming out of that. 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. They finish their recount. Yesterday showed once again. That biden clearly won the stage that set the stage. Today for georgia formerly certify its results and of course that's significant news. We'll talk more about that later tonight but but look at. What else is sharing the front page with that. Huge political news right see. Stay home for the holiday. Georgia state health official. 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.

The president's eldest son and namesake. Donald trump junior has it as well he has tested. 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.
