"Displeasure welcome james. Martin davis back program drenica attorney and i. We talked the other day about this lawsuit where some of the gretna parents of girls killed an anaerobic crash. A couple of years ago are suing sarpi county. strikes me as a non-attorney as as as a tough a tough case for them to prevail but i want to get it professionals view. What's your view of this case going. Well you're right on. I'm in a tort claim which means that you have to file a claim first and then you withdraw claiming your filed a lawsuit. You don't get you don't get a jury. It's tried to judge if you get it that far but it's a very difficult case particularly anytime. You're sue a political entity United tytler jury and then the burden of proof is pretty heavy particularly in this case because you're sewing the county supposedly for perot design. That's theory that holly hardly ever flights i mean particularly when you have the the people involved were doing ninety miles. An hour and a caddie road and You know there was alcohol involved. So it's it's really uphill battle and then and then to go again and say that they wanna find that five dot cap on constitutional. I mean that's i mean it would be easier to to turn an alligator into a vegetarian that it would get the supreme court to overrule the cap that that's a matter for the legislature first of all so that's probably not gonna go anywhere at all and then the question is whether or not it's premature because you've got to have case with five million dollars to challenge the cap you got three young teenagers and probably no disrespect spetember the family. You know that's not going to be worth five million dollars. I had that Yeah the seward bus x. Case against the state a few years ago and there was a poor barricades and stop signs in the wrong place and that was only with the half million dollars for a seventeen year. Old kid you know. So The cap is is an issue. But the real issue here. And i feel so sorry for those parents and the family and friends of those girls but again it's it's an uphill battle you have to show that the cause of the accident but for the poor road design the this. Actually it would not have happened. And that's just not the case I think the state is self insured and the cases. I've had you know against the stage where i've collected You know they have the self insured county will have some insurance but you have to have experts that are coming gonna take come in and testify. that within a reasonable degree of festival certainty. This accent wouldn't have happened except for the poor road design. And you know. Roads aren't designed to handle traffic county rose particularly at ninety miles an hour. I mean it's it's pretty simple. I mean obviously. The families are distressed. And they want to Do something you know about the deaths of their children. And unfortunately you know i mean. I think it's it's a gesture but it's probably a futile gesture at santa. All the way around let me ask you about one. Apparent legal angle here where where. percentage of blame is assigned At one of the young women. I believe who's Was killed and whose parents are suing was not did not have alcohol in her system. So that come into play in in other words would they do this on an individual basis with girl. You know yeah. Yeah the east one that would be a separate jet judgment not a verdict. Because it's a judgment was it's a it's a rendered by judge judgment for each one of them again. The alcohol really only relates to the driver in terms of the cause so they certainly have a cause of action against the driver. Who was if she was intoxicated. You caused the accent that doesn't carry over to the county. Cause of the accident was was a driver doing ninety miles an hour. Who may or may not have been intoxicated so the tax occasion relates to just the driver that the passengers The fact that they were drinking it really is irrelevant. Unless the fact they didn't have their seat belts on. That's a mitigating factor. What about Yeah but we're talking. James martin davis here for a minute. What about this I understand the insurance company would be the ones defending the the lawsuit on behalf of county and insurance companies are well known for settling and making things go away. Do you think that's likely here now. I don't i mean because they're not gonna wanna pay out a lot of money when the the sick probably could win this an emotion for a summary judgment. It's remember it's going to be tried to judge the judges handle these cases all the time. And they're gonna be able to recognize of bona fide case from a a case where they're trying to stretch the law It's just a it's just a case. Where as tragic as it is that that the driver is responsible the fact that they were going ninety miles an hour and and there was an taxation part of driver that that's that's caused the accident. I mean cody rhodes no matter how you design them You know are geared to to handle ninety mile an hour traffic. I mean go cart. You could argue that no roadway because there are no ninety mile an hour speed limits you know but especially accounting you could but i mean for example like ashby something other than this for example. I had a case for a million dollars against the state when on highway six. It was a row two hundred and four street. When were all that construction. What they did there is. They put the stopera stop signs in the wrong place. They had barricades obstructed your jassam oncoming traffic barrels. There and we had experts. Were able to show that there was negligence. They're just like and then do it. By saxon case there were contractors involved in hours State involve if it's no different here. I mean there aren't any barricades wasn't obstruction of justice. I mean i. I how do you. How perfectly ensure a row zion to be out of present safe. I mean it's roadster there to stay handle traffic. I mean the the design is for that purpose obviously can't building hazards but yeah county. Rose highways car does drive itself right. Jim thanks appreciate the analysis. And i i. I suspected that was approximately what the situation would be. That's somehow torney james. Martin gyms out broken bow trying first degree murder on broken. Bow gotta get back to the courtroom..

"You got the pothole crews tried to make our ride a little bit smoother in in most scenarios, you hear a story about a pothole it's typically not a positive thing. It's how much damage has been done. It's people the flat tires and vehicles out of alignment. Not this particular story, this this is a story where potholed may have actually saved a life. How about that? Gretna fire and rescue that's outside of Omaha. Nebraska. Were dispatched to help a fifty nine year old man whose heart was racing to work. The squad had a twenty minute drive to the emergency room and at one point the patient's heart. They said was beating at a rate of two hundred beats per minute. But during the seven mile ride. The ambulance hit a pothole. Medics told the hospital is relayed by the Omaha scanner that the jolt of the pothole. Converted the patients racing heart back to normal. Now. I'm thinking this must be one L of a pothole, right? That was quite the jolt. It's rare. But it is a well described phenomenon. According to the doctor, he he wasn't a physician on the case. But explained how the jarring from the pothole could be so helpful. One way to treat a rapid heartbeat with an electrical shock. Classically? What is what you see on the television? Right. The paddle someone saying clear, and then the big jolt. It turns out you you can do that with pot all these is. The fire chief declined to talk about where the pothole was located. So that the patients privacy wouldn't be violated. Friends of the patient, though, said he's surely gonna be looking at puddles. A little differently. No, I would imagine.

"And text line is open right now for one four seven nine nine one six twenty and you might be thinking about your plans for spring to get this underway. And. Judge. We mentioned some of the trends for outdoor living. What what are some of the things that people are requesting? I don't think this is a new trend, but outdoor living spaces are huge. I think Kyle can second beyond that a lot of people are taking their kitchens and dining areas outside. So you're actually creating rooms outside in it's hard to think about that on a day like today, but possibly a month from now both Kyle and we're going to be on the phone quite a bit. Because as soon as the weather breaks the phone starts ringing and people are thinking about landscapes kitchens are hugely right now. How elaborate are those outdoor kitchens? They can be pretty simple or they can be very elaborate. Really just depends on how are you going to use it? Some people will just have a nice kind of built in grill with countertop planking on both sides. And that's it. Some people will go to the extreme of having a sink swatter brought up there. Warming worming areas off to the side ice chests refrigerator. So can you can you can do a lot and it can be pretty elaborate or simple to this is the recommendation to use different forms of stones at different kinds of stones in that setting in a lot of times. We'll try and match the house we mentioned it before. So we can veneer the structure with the exact same stone. So it it visually ties in perfectly to the house. And it looks like an extension of the inside being out, and then also can provide Gretna granite countertops. I would highly suggest granite countertop outside and we have we have for ours. We do have granite that. We got from hawk fifty years ago. And it still looks like brand new. Yeah. And I'll Josh gone on this too. But you know, Granitz much better. It's much better surface. It's not it's not going to absorb the stuff. You have going on whether we want to admit it or not we tend to make a mess outside when we're grilling primarily the guys whether it be the rings from their beer can or the spill barbecue sauce or drop abroad or a hotdog or burger on the counter. So granite countertops are going to be by far the most user friendly, and the least amount of maintenance we've got a number of different options. However grant, it's going to perform the best it's going to hold its color the sealer on the top is going to perform really well. Like, you said if there's any kind of spills wine, whatever it's not going to penetrate into that stone in and change the color, whereas a lot of the other limestone products, which are great products, but they just don't perform as well outside is counter top material it and it's easy to maintain. Like, you said you'd absolutely wipe it off and looks good as new now. What about the installation of how important is? Is that when you're working with stone? What what are some of the things you have to make sure it's done? Right. The first time the base is probably the most important. I would I would say you have to make sure that you have a nice solid base for whatever stone are using to sit upon or be built on. If you don't the weather in Wisconsin could could ravage it it could just destroyed. So you need them have a nice. Blanket of stone underneath compacted to to make sure it's when we solid. And that'd be probably the most important thing. I would think drainage is also important to you never wanna have water issue. You never wanna have water next to structure the possibility of it interacting with the structure to make sure water is not not part of the equation. But how how do you make sure that you don't have that water problem that you do have the good drainage? Well, you know, when our when are foreman are building a patio where I was looking at pitch to have make sure we have proper pitch away from the house and off the patio. So that that above ground is shutting the water away. If you if pitches is tough, and you'll have a lot of high to move water across sometimes we'll use drains in the heart skips built into the stone patio. So. Artificial watersheds where you're kind of you're sending water to the drain and and then underground getting water away. So again, installation, right? Kyle. Absolutely. I and we actually host do it yourself seminar, which is typically on mother's day weekend this year. It's actually me down in our Franklin location on twenty seven th and Ryan, and it's probably the least sexy part of it. But the base preparation and excavation like Kyle was mentioning is absolutely critical. You don't see that necessarily? But that is huge when you're doing any kind of landscaping is the excavation, and your base preparation so that you can get that proper pitch. Get your water away from your house as well as get proper drainage. And again, that's a lot of the behind the scenes stuff that you don't necessarily see in the finished product. But that's gonna make it either perform really well or not perform well at all retaining walls to Libby, many different options stone there, but drainage is is huge with retaining walls as well. So as base, but whenever we whenever we find failing retain, walls the. The reason why they're usually failing because of drainage people have not put the provision behind the wall to take the water away, the freestyle cycle, Wisconsin all just freeze and push the wall out and blow it out, basically. So drainage is critical. And if you have if you do decide to have a retaining wall put it what's the lifespan of something. Like that. Could if it's if it's done properly it's done properly with the proper base, improper drainage fifty years. Plus, I would say, yeah. If you drive around the Milwaukee area, there are walls that have been here longer than Colin. I have been here, and again, it's just about proper installation. Improper drainage, so water is the enemy to all landscape projects you want to get it down and away from paving or from your walls because it will inevitably make those things fail. Josh is here from hawk with stone tile from seasonal services. You may have some questions on the accurate mortgage. Talk and text line at four one four seven nine nine one six twenty.

"And because that is no longer part of the equation, maybe evaluation of some of these Pera mutuals gets affected. And now they need to make a decision when they're gonna continue to invest. In the current business model, they have or they want to just, you know, clothes shopping. So to a smaller player, the big big home run, you know, grand slam for -tunities will be limited. Now that this referendum's pass. Our guest is Jose Felix T as former member of the Florida state house of representatives. Now one way to keep a casino license in Florida is to maintain a para mutual racing license by law known as coupling casino. That already has power mutual license. Can also couple it with a casino license by offering a certain number of live races throughout the year for the larger outfits like Tampa Bay Gulfstream live racing is very much part and parcel of what they do. But it places like Hialeah Oxford Hamilton downs in Gretna. They offer match races with two horses often of questionable background and class in order to satisfy the requirement with a minimum of effort. I know because I've. Seen a lot of them in person. What will this Bill have on these smaller casinos as they try to maintain or grow these now even more precious casino licences? Well, I'll separate the answer. So first of all not only was a referendum on expansion of gaming. There was also a referendum on dog racing specifically and that referendum disallowed or outlawed agreed to Florida. So now, you're absolutely going to have it appeared issue between the pair of mutuals themselves or some para mutuals like thoroughbreds and the quarter horses and the high lies those from times are going to have to stay coupled while the green hound from times would be this is going to change the business environment. Some would suggest the greyhound of attributive b. Anymore advantageous position to vessels dollars? There were putting into greyhound racing into marketing and expansion of of their footprint of now at this other referendum has passed on top of that. Maybe some of that gigantic opportunities of former greyhound para mutuals had is somewhat limited. I would imagine that though this amendment passed. What would be grandfathered in would be the number of slot machines, the seven para mutuals of data Broward have though a lot of these mutuals only have seven hundred fifty two thousand machines. They actually are able to have up to two thousand per state statute. I am not an expert on the referendum though. I did serve on the constitutional revision commission, but I will tell you the way I read it. It's just to me that they do not need to ask for permission to go above the the. A number of salons that they have right now so long as they don't cross at two thousand sloshing threshold. So if I was I would start expanding those law machines as soon as possible, but for the places we mentioned Hamilton, Oxford Gretna highly highly has slots, but the others don't do you see them pushing to try to allow decoupling as the greyhound tracks are now getting they've been pushing for de-coupling forever in order for for for company to happen. One can make an argument that you would have to amend the current seminal contact which governs the state's gaming footprint because it silence to whether or not you can or cannot decouple and in order for you to do that you need to make a lot of other concessions just because of the nature of the legislature. Give a hundred twenty members in the house of forty members in the Senate when it comes to gain. There's a lot of parochial interests. You have a lot of communities..
