year Fisher has proposed using twenty seven million to help make up for forty six million dollar projected shortfall in the current year he's also furloughed city employees to save money council president David James there will be some hard decisions that the council is going to have to make the mayor will have to make and we will get through it together the Sherin James said they are not likely to support tax increases this year to make up any shortfall the metro council will begin holding hearings on the budget next week Suzanne Duval newsradio eight forty WHAS in Frankfort governor

indicating that he's either got a raise taxes a significant tax increase or reduce every single agency about our government if the the feds don't just help out to the city of Lobel not sure that that's gonna happen at me I would get a tax and there's so many businesses that are on the fringe of going out of business or already have that could be very very difficult that's the whites both the mayor and I think David and David James said as much in his cut that it's going to have to literally be the eleventh and a half hour and there's everything else has been done before they put a tax hike on the table and I I you know I give them credit for that because you know you know I unless you're just completely off your rocker you know nobody sits there and looks at the tax bill goes well Gee I like paying this you know so I think I don't think that that's a a political play either I think that was a bipartisan you know you can't tax somebody who doesn't have the money to pay a tax right you know that's a little issue of this coronavirus what I wanna bring up that other one that's a Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on a Terry show the other day indicating he would approve of the state's piling at bankruptcies it's interesting from the standpoint because there's now been some push back the only problem you heard death metal councilman jet president David James yesterday but also others the met mayor Fischer and others and of course there was Andrew Cuomo who I came out and said this about Kentucky because ms call these blues basically indicate these were blue state ballots many democratic state Beltre's Coleman who is a Democrat state the state of Kentucky takes out a hundred and forty eight billion more than they put it okay so he's a federal legislator he's distributing the federal pot of money New York what's in more money to the federal pot then it takes out his state takes out more than it puts it so there you go that's what Cuomo saying and of course he is a blue state we are red states generally with the senator McConnell and of the legislature except for the governor I I you know I wonder you know it's been pretty obvious that any regrets going to have a hard time in the race for governor but when you start taken enough talk to us some pensioners at here thank you tacky there are several but there's a five different pensions including at the teachers pension there's a a four hundred ninety seven thousand three hundred sixty one a Kentucky ends that are receiving some type of state pension in in the in the big whether it's a the could take your time system or the teachers or or or others I mean that's a significant of voting bloc when you when you when you start talking that way and so all of a sudden what we see a rise or change by that big of a voting block to make sure because they're concerned about their pensions I mean they really are after what the what the statement was yesterday so we'll have to see if that's going to have an impact on the this upcoming election you have any thoughts on it will it really I mean that is just I was kind of surprised by the way came out at least from center McConnell yeah I mean it's I think a lot of people are going to they're gonna you throwing ideas at the wall and I think to some extent maybe that's what the senator was doing I don't know I don't know him well enough to know which stop process the army there's that is the having municipalities go bankrupt is.

"Before questions were to begin their most important religious celebrations of the year mayor Greg Fischer declared that drive in the Easter services would be illegal to remove all doubt about his seriousness he also threatened to arrest and criminal penalties for anybody who dared violate his order and in an Orwellian twisty invited people to snitch on their fellow citizens he justified this by saying it was to save lives and the piece has many such examples happening all over the country and how these people are not gonna want to give this up no matter what the president says about re opening the matter even what their governors say no matter even what the Democrat National Committee might say something no matter what governor Cuomo might say no matter what plugs might say and you're living in Michigan when you're governor there I do have your papers Mr Limbaugh I'm just getting a quote if you want to yes I do and in fact I do have papers I do have papers we all have papers here in case we were stopped by the authorities but if you want to unite Michigan governor what just loosen the restrictions okay unite unite us that's all we're asking for so my father in law okay do you think her objective is I we don't know you know I think there's a lot of people that have a lot of questions now wait just a minute do you realize what an answer that is here what I'm asking you what do you think the governor of your state's objective is with all these restrictions in your answer is you don't know your I think the reaction was not she's trying to say why she's trying to sell save the state none of that it was I don't know what what Mr Lamar one night when I see that landscaping is banned in my state and then I see certain cities have people landscaping the city stuff and are like you know independent landscapers can't landscaper my father in law can't lay carpet in an empty house and then I see that they're really just doesn't seem like there's what's the clear goal here what are we trying to do like it got a lot you gotta give free thinking citizens back there there are rights and abilities to be able to govern themselves to make smart choices the exactly little people you know exactly and this this is what I think I think the guy that wrote the piece here is exactly right I think some of these people governors included mayors are going to have a lot of trouble giving up this this newfound power and you know I've got the magic words I'm just trying to save lives I mean who can object to that as an objective but this actually represents an over arching larger question that we're going to have to start asking ourselves pretty soon I'm not I'm odd I will wager many of you already talking about it with your families and we with your friends how many of you know so I just wanna go back to normal I just wanna go back to the way it was doesn't everybody want that don't you wish we can go back to the day before the shutdown was announced I do and how many of you have said over the course of years yeah I wish we could turn back the clock and go back to an America where there seem to be a little more cultural risks bag that used to be a whatever and they hate the left you'll catch her back you can go back because he can't do it because we didn't have to reactivate slavery and all that so I'm here to tell you if you're thinking about going back to the way it used to be you're going to have to adjust your thinking you're gonna have to reorient your thinking because it isn't gonna happen we're not going back to the way it used to be we have for example doctor Fauci suggesting that shaking hands never happen again as a means of stopping the spread of the flu and many other communicable diseases now not with the force of law but Dr Fauci is suggesting there are people who are suggesting that we may always have to have masks at the ready whenever there is the outbreak of a new strain of flu or such as this a new virus that we've not heard of there are people who are going to say social distancing needs to be maintained for the rest of time restaurants that used to be able to see two hundred will now be allowed to see no more than one hundred we will not have table tops any larger than four we will not be able to put tables closer together than or as close together as they used to be any number you can think of your own examples and there are going to be people who will it will be very medallist got hold of this I mean that they already have the environmentalists are already happy as they can be because the environmentalists are saying already that the shut down of our economy has proven we can stop the destruction of the planet by shutting down the evils of capitalism we can shut down the use of fossil fuels and in the process we are still able to keep people fed without them having to go to work by virtue of government spending I. E. socialism so the environmentalist wacko crowd is already privately laying the groundwork for this as emergency behavior to save the planet the pressure to maintain aspects of this shut down and the limits that it has enforced on the behavior and the general ability to move about by the American people is going to be a maintained its gonna be advocated to be maintained to some extent by many people and some of them are going to be able in government now I can give you a counter arguments to this if you go back to the civil war Abraham Lincoln suspended a whole lot of the constitution in order to preserve the union and I'm sure that there were people back then worried my gosh are we ever going to have the bill of rights activists and of course we did the country was able to resume because of the character and the morality of Abraham Lincoln but it's all dependent on the character and the morality of people in charge of things the end of this shut down it before this happened the big argument America was over socialism communism versus capitalism in the Democrat party had fully thrown in with the socialism side of the argument that was their objective they tried to destroy Bernie Sanders campaign because he was too open about it but what his ideas I never disputed his ideas they never said Bernese ideas are wacko they existed burning can get elected on these ideas meaning they now country isn't socialist yet they know therefore it's going to have to be forced on people they know therefore that something like this enables them to force it on people they're not going to want to give up the opportunity the shutdown is presented so when the shutdown is ended when the economy is quote unquote re open fox a new battle begins that we are all going to have to engage in and we're all going to have to be very active in supporting and that is a return to free market capitalism because free market capitalism is going to be said to be the primary reason this virus got to us in the first place can you wait that of course I am the inaction of the lazy and self absorbed Donald Trump how many of you think let me just put it to you how many you think let's look at what's been canceled spring training and the opening of the Major League Baseball season canceled and no target date to resume there been some people who maybe maybe rush we get over the fourth of July Major League Baseball has been thrown out nothing official the closest thing to official that we've had some baseball as the Major League Baseball Players Association the union I think we'll see you again suggesting that games be playin in Arizona in empty spring training stadiums how many do you think there will be a major league baseball this year even if it's just a month or two how many do you think that it will happen how many of you believe it cancel Wimbledon they have canceled the British open golf tournament the Augusta national golf club is not totally K. they have a rescheduled the masters for November the PGA USGA rescheduled the US open I think for September October I'm not sure which that such that the PGA championship some some professional golf to the majors have been rescheduled how many of you think this is a big one how many of you think there will be National Football League games this fall in the stadiums with fans Brian you think there will be do you believe that organized team activities will happen this spring they are showing up do you believe that there will be training camp for NFL teams opening in July and August as usual you're shaking your head now do you think the hall of fame game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the data is kept boys will be played August sixth in canton Ohio with fans in the stadium August the sixth you do therefore you believe the NFL season will open on time with fans in the stands fans in the stadium that is your snorkel a boy's van is nodding his head in agreement you think that's going to happen okay god god god god god let them why I'm not suggesting it's a matter of scaring anybody I'm I'm sure that scared a lot of people I mean I'm just asking do you think it could be could happen are we got up the question really is is somebody going to re open its economy in time for these kinds of things to happen you think yes there you have it Mr Shirley says probably opening next month some of the some of the governors want to open these Democrat I grew a major qualm all sorry governor Cuomo wants to re open these northeastern numbers what a real just yesterday I mean just last week all my god well it's horrible it's one zero I got now they want to re open less than a week what happened they're out of money fox they're out of money all right so let's see what else you think Wimbledon can change your mind and re open decide to reply if there is a re opening of the the by the way the U. K. and I don't know how valid that the UK so they may be shut down the rest of the year they're people condition to stay home and watching Sky News all day for years anyway so and I'll throw some Boy George videos up there you can keep the UK population pretty much mollified occupied see what else could I ask you about that and look at the clock I have to take another break but we've got lots of the other side of as we always do so sit tight we'll be right back at the.

Trees Are Key To Fighting Urban Heat, But Cities Keep Losing Them

"Yesterday that low income areas of major u._s. Cities are often hotter order than wealthy neighborhoods. It's the finding of an investigation from n._p._r. And the howard center for investigative journalism at the university of maryland today we look at one of the best ways to beat the urban heat trees american cities are losing nearly twenty nine million trees every year. Many are struggling to reverse that trend that includes louisville kentucky which compared to its surroundings has been getting hotter faster than any other u._s. City n._p._r.'s mega anderson reports. Any hagler is walking down her block in park divall a lower income neighbourhood on louisville's west side. It's lined with single family homes and well kept tidy yards. First of all is my neighborhood and i love love it even without the things that i would want to have here things like trees. She points to a small scraggly one in the grassy patch running down her street. That's the the median right there. They've got a tree in there but it's one tree. There's another small tree behind it and there are parts of this neighborhood with more trees but overall data shows the canopy here is about half the city average. Hitler says she thinks trees were just not a priority park. Vol used to be the site of a massive asif public housing complex that was demolished and construction started here in the late ninety s c after twenty years. If we had thought differently about the design zayn we might have put more trees here across louisville wealthier neighborhoods have as much as twice the tree coverage as low income areas many of which are communities of have color jad daily is president and c._e._o. Of the nonprofit american forests he says that pattern is often the case nationwide. If we show you a map the tree canopy in virtually any sitting america were also showing you a map of income and in many cases were showing you a map of race ethnicity in ways that transcendent calm trees aren't just pleasant their key to fighting heat view live in an area and cities that seeing more extreme heat days but you don't have tree covered a cool down your neighborhood. The can literally be a a life or death issue according to an analysis by n._p._r. In the howard center low income areas of cities across the country tend to be hotter than their a wealthier counterparts. Those areas are hotter in part because they often have fewer trees and that heat can take a toll on health. Here's daily the folks who are least likely to have air conditioning to whether heatwaves the folks who are most likely to have preexisting health conditions that put them at greater risk from those heat waves aren't getting the benefits of trees between two thousand nine and two thousand fourteen forty four states lost tree cover in urban areas according to the u._s. forest service and when it comes to trees many low income areas are already starting at a deficit cad stanfield executive director of louisville grows a nonprofit that plants trees says it doesn't have to be that way. He took me to saint james court in old louisville. It's a boulevard famous for its stately victorian homes and an annual art art fair but we were there to see the huge lush canopy towering over us. If you were to look at an aerial view of this wouldn't look too dissimilar from forest the trees reese shade us almost completely stanfield says it's a reminder of what's possible if trees are part of the plan from the beginning for anybody that plants trees in a city. This is the the goal this is the dream. This is what you hope to create in the cities but even if trees are in the plan maintaining them takes money a lot of money me this year tree maintenance on this street which is about a quarter mile long will cost around twenty thousand dollars according to the neighborhood association the city has planted planted and donated roughly five thousand trees annually since two thousand thirteen but it loses about fifty four thousand every year according to its own assessment too invasive species a._b._c.'s natural disasters and urban development and louisville is facing a thirty five million dollar budget deficit. They've cut funding to emergency police and fire fire services. Mayor greg fischer says he'd like to plant more trees. We've got it wrestle with this great. American challenge people want everything but they don't want to pay for anything. When it comes to planting tens of thousands more he says city government's not going to be able to do all that by itself. He's counting on nonprofits and other institutions to fill in the gaps at the university of louisville's environment institute researchers are trying to make the case that trees are a must have in city budgets jets. They're starting to study called the greenheart project and will plant full grown trees as tall as thirty feet in three square mile area in louisville. The five five year study will measure how the health of hundreds of participants changes and compare them to a nearby control group in short. They're testing trees the same way you test the new drug. The idea was to run. This project is a clinical trial but instead of giving pills we plant trees irony. Bhatnagar is director of the institute food and he says beyond cooling city down studies have linked trees too much more better air quality better stormwater management lower energy costs lower levels levels of stress even a longer life but naga says you can't always isolate trees as the reason those things happen. Everything's remaining the same the trees in it what he says cities have divorced themselves from nature and now he wants to show what happens when you put nature back in meg anderson n._p._r. News.
