"She, of course, Hamlin County's coroner, putting her name on the letter that has gone out to Cincinnati, public schools and well school boards. In this region, for that matter, asking for and pleading for universal masking in all schools, and that would be for staff but as well as Children because we have yet to immunize kids. Um and the infection rates are going up. There's no doubt about that. Kids are representing something like 27%. More than a quarter of all new reported cases and pediatric admissions. Pretend per 100,000 are up to record levels for them, too. So Something like 600%. I believe since the Fourth of July Now that's across the United States as well here locally, though, um, we're seeing the numbers increase in June, when kids weren't in school. Obviously. You had pretty much no kids hospitalized with covid, Um, just a couple weeks ago, 14 days ago That number was in the single digits eight or nine and now we're up to 70. And you can see that number starting to turn so certainly as kids are exposed. Um, they get sick. Now the chances of a kid still going to the hospital are very, very slim and a child dying is extremely small. No doubt about that. But as a parent to I would worry about all right. Well, you know, we're worried about the vaccine as adults, so I don't know what's going to do to me in a few years or a few months. What would covid do to you if you got it or what would covid due to someone in that age group? We don't know the long term effects of covid on a developing body. And at that point we don't know the effects of the vaccine under developing body and this is the reason why this is the last cohort to wind up getting vaccinated. We're not there yet with the research when it comes to vaccinating Children, because we don't know that we don't know what the VAX is going to do. That really means that we don't know what covid are going to do to them Long term. It's fair, right? So you know, depending where you stand ego Canyon, a mass. No mask. Whatever it is, I don't know for me again. My opinion really hasn't changed that much on this. Despite all this evidence, information coming that's always been. You know, you're a kid. As a parent, we I think there's a little bit of Maybe joy sometimes a little bit of penance there when we're like, you know why you're going to do because I said what happened because I said so. My entire childhood growing up is because I said, so That's all there is right because I said so. That, you know, do as I say. Not as I do kind of option when you're an adult in it sounds hypocritical, but it is that there's things that kids have to do. Adults don't and there's things that adults do. The kids can't. That's the way it is. You go with your kicked when you're that age, and so if we say Let's have a mask. Yeah, To me..

"If you have a family member that's mentally competent, or maybe mentally incompetent. I guess I should say You actually physically have to goto court to take their right to vote away now granted that is granted by the Constitution of the states. You know, we talk about red flag laws. We talk about those people are mentally unstable from possessing a firearm, very serious thing. You know, Should people who are mentally unstable have access to a weapon. The answer is no. However, there's the constitutional issue. That is a that is a right granted not by the United States but by God, according to What is written on that that hollow piece of paper in Washington, D. C. First Amendment right to vote all those things, But you know, there comes a time where maybe mentally they're on it. You're unable to do a bunch of things, and that would include vote. We have something like what? 600,000 voters in Hamlin County about 40,000 those voters Are of the age, and I'm not saying that everyone who is certainly not everyone who can't make a decision for themselves is above a certain age. I'm not saying but generally. Typically, when you get about 75, we've started diseases of ageing and the fact that we live a lot longer generally tends to play out when it comes to mental acumen. And so in that category, something like 40,000 people in an L. A County alone. Maybe not all of them, but maybe a number of them. It probably should be voting. You know, we have to talk about who shows up in who votes and who's smart enough to vote. And should we have a quiz to only allow the smartest people to vote in America? If this gets back to the debate about the electoral college, right? One of the reasons the electoral college was established. In order to obviously waiting states like Ohio, and in that way places left smaller states like Wyoming and Nevada. Places like that they have a vote in the election is well because of the electoral college, but also a part of that, too, is the electors. The individuals who the framer said should cast the final vote towards President Largely were put there because they were educated, smart people. They don't want stupid people like me voting. They wanted a that way. If if dumb people were promised a lollypop and said, We're gonna vote for this guy that way they could the archers going down on a knowledge It's kind of a fail safe. That's that's what the framers had in buying to protect America from stupidity from mass stupidity. That's where the that's with electric college came from. In that regard. Okay, well, who's mentally sound enough to make a vote? If you are ruled by a court incapable of taking care of yourself, and now you have to have someone do your bidding for you make your decisions for you and be appointed by the court by a probate court. To act as your attorney essentially Should you still be able to vote? Now We talk about every single vote counting and the people who shouldn't kind of right in the fraud and voter suppression all these things. And yet no one's looking at this element here too, And I don't know what the standard should be. Honestly, I'm just question because is you here is close to the election. And certainly after the lecture, you're going to hear about voter coercion and you're going about voter fraud. You get about, you know, I'm gonna have somebody on the next couple days. Talking about Opening up the poles. Two people make sure you have access to, but it's never been easier to vote. For God's sake. If you care about voting, then you're registered..

"What we do want is to make sure that the deal that we have agreed upon that they are codified and we're asking any county. Um uh, Representative is listening to this conversation. Let's stop the fighting. Let's stick to the deal that we've negotiated eight months ago there no problems and let's move forward. But the permits I believe, will go forward. And I think the men and women that we're working on it, we'll all keep going. Well. Here's the other thing talking to my people in the construction industry, not happy with this whole thing because you're impacting. I think 60 workers on site but but and probably 100 Oh, I don't know. 131 150 workers, All told, and that would include people behind the scenes. But here's the thing right now is the summer word peak building. Christopher Smitherman. That means that we are trying to continue Despite covert all the construction. People are still building stuff like crazy. What happens is this You can only manage so many jobs as a project manager, and now you got to delay here. It may screw things up another development sites and a lot. Now, if you're in business, I'm listen. This going here we go again, with the county and city not being able to get along in the message. Yen is in. This hurts the city and the county. Christopher Smitherman is that I don't know if I can trust to do business with Hamlin County or the city of Cincinnati. Why would I want to build something like I know Amazon's next world headquarters in Cincinnati, Ohio? If you guys can't get along in a shared concert venue, Ah, project Yeah, I wish it was. It's bigger than just a venue for us like that Lot 23 which is what we're discussing is one part of a bigger deal. And, you know, I would say baloney if you owned land that you conveyed to a group and agreed upon terms, and then that group Began to take actions on your land that you haven't agreed upon. And they then try to use public pressure to get you to not hold your fiduciary responsibility to the people that elected you you would be standing up for that, too. I say in confidence, the moment is going to be issued. Calmer heads are going to prevail. But at the end of the day, it's still isn't going to resolve. Will the bank's project as a relation along one in lot 13 which is our land? Will the county convey that to the city as they agree to eight months ago? And if that happens because there was so much pressure with the mayor to make that deal happen while commissioner Opportune was passing? It was a gentleman's leaves that they would come back with the documentation of what we agreed off. Okay, So if it's this is accounting, you're saying here. The county is not doing their due diligence. They're not following the letter of the agreement of the Gentleman's agreement or the written agreement that then why would the mayor or why would the city in this case, then used the incompetence of the former city manager? I think Patrick Tony Because he did not file appropriately once this deal was executed the city never. Ah filed the sale with Hamlin County Auditor's office, which is a fairly easy thing to do, But it was overlooked during this whole process, and now they're using that bit of incompetence is leverage. My good friend Patrick Gainey is not in confident. He's a good man. So was it delivering the old on hold on, hold on. And when we agreed, not a gentleman's agreement when we had agreement around lots 1 13 23 and 24 25 When we had those agreements altogether, the city manager believed that the county would do what they said they were going to do. And so he wasn't incompetent on his party's just way. Want the music. Then you build. We've had that discussion. We're not going to revisit it. We're thankful that, uh, that the citizens and organizations are paying 100% of the money for building the music venue. And we all understand that the music then you will not be successful without the park. I predict to you that the permits will go forward very soon and that I hope that the county will finally convey the agreement that they said they were going to do eight months ago. And if any county commissioner comes on today, it's important. I think that you asked him. That question completed deal, but they say if they were fair, fair enough, but But there's also an emergency ordinance. It was past here, too, that that essentially gave the county that land correct. We're talking about a lot, which lot lot running 13 No. No, no, that that lot lots one in 13 that the city is saying we want tohave self determination on and build on. That's our lead, and I'm staying at the heart of it for us. We just want We want 23 bill with the music venue. We support the garage. We support the music. Then you being built were supporting the county onto our lot 24 or 25 were just ultimately saying the deal that we cut eight months ago. Let's make sure that we follow through on it. And I think this is a nice shot across the bow of the county. Not moving forward and building things without finishing what you said you were going to do it, and that's where we are. Christopher Smith and Vice Mayor Crystal Madam and share economic growth development about 20 other Ah, other committees and the guy's got his MBE or his hands full. He's got a family to worry about. He's got a private business and Now he's embroiled in this whole thing to come. Another try to try and make sense of what the hell's happening here And still you like you're listening on. I still don't know. All I know Is this the takeaway for the typical voter Chris? The typical taxpayer of Hamlin County. The typical voter in in the city of sin tonight, a taxpayer there, the working man working women All they know. Is this this regardless of what numbers? What lots. What was said what was unsaid and the fact that remains is that You guys again? The city and the county. I'd say this to a commission president in history have to is looking confident in this case. I think the takeaway is and I think it's a fair one is you're going OK, I don't know We're going to get the permit soon or whatever, but there's a work stoppage and it slowed down. Meanwhile, northern Kentucky continues to build that music venue with promo west on the other side of the river. 1 may look at this and go. OK, Chris Smitherman. You're not Mayor John Cranley. But I would ask Graham with this question said, You know, you weren't a proponent of the streetcar You did some things to hold up the streetcar as much as possible. So you could go. Hey, listen, I didn't support it. But this is what you get is the same thing happening with the concert venue, except there's no competition for a streetcar. There is competition with the music venue because we're in a race an arms race with northern Kentucky as they build their venue. Any delay is an advantage for northern Kentucky. If I'm a voter in a taxpayer in Cincinnati, I look at this and go. Why are we doing this to give Khun Northern Kentucky, another feather in their cap? Yeah, I agree with some of that. You know, there's been a longstanding struggle, I would say, um, 15 17 years ago if we could do it all over again. We probably wouldn't combine the land the way we did it. And But we did it in the end in the spirit of cooperation with our county partners on DH, So everything you said, I believe politically, um the county might be. I don't know if this is true, but might be Using all the things you said as leverage because of of the optics of it all. But it doesn't take away the fact that our mayor John Cranley and out city manager and the previous city manager in this council, we also have a fiduciary responsibility to our taxpayers as the county and so it's not a big sticking point, if the eight months Eight months ago. The agreement that we all said we were going to sing Kumbaya the music thing he was going to go forward, and those contracts were going to be signed. Listen, there's there is no fight. And I also want to again predict that the permits will be issued and we're going to move forward. But I would tell you we're gonna have more struggles if the county continues to position itself. Around land back to the city. Only so that that's the way ever get this thing done. Because this is about how many times have we had a, um, I guess came at loggerheads. We couldn't get stuff done. Agreed on the Lord and lady like you want to have to walk away County do whatever you want to do. I mean the band feel I don't know. But the Bangles deal, which I had nothing to do with is also a part of this drama. That deal is the worst deal. Right by ESPN by Wall Street in the history of the United States of America, right, And so surface parking.

I think I'm speaking for most Republicans voice say that I think there are ways to balance about economy that needs to get back on its feet. With health and public safety. So I understand those concerns. You know, I don't have any inside information about what the governor might do today. To the extent that he would ever listen to a local party hack like myself. I would urge you not to order the shutdowns. I'm not a fan of those, but I do you know? Look, I I am Cancel that. The president is very supportive of wearing a mask, very supportive, social distancing being safe, taking good precautions. But you know, in terms of a total shutdown of our economy, we cannot allow that to happen. We need to balance these two thieves. Two things, and I think the shutdowns very candidate. I don't want to get this wormhole, but the shutdowns can do more harm virus, says Mike Again, Alex around to fill a chair.

"On a farm and ranch in Hamlin county South Dakota from the time she could walk she worked beside her dad on the ranch when I worked with horses and cattle and maybe that's what gave her a little bit of extra common sense she's now serving as south Dakota's thirty third governor and she joins us now hello governor how are you hi Glen I'm doing good it's it's a it's great to have you on I want to go over what you announced on Monday and what you're doing and why this sets you guys apart from from everybody else we are calling yeah we did we announce the first statewide state backed clinical trial of hydroxy quote when it's the we really desire to go on offense against this virus so we partnered with our healthcare systems leading the a clinical trial will be Sanford health but we also have two other systems within the state of South Dakota that are participating as well to make sure that we're getting a wide swath of individuals participating in this trial so it will be the first ever statewide one and one that is status helping to find and facilitate that one company virtually eighty to ninety percent of our doctors in the state and up to a hundred thousand people throughout the process so I were focused on making sure that we're not just dealing with taking care of our people but also putting a research and to make sure we have a long term solution to help fight the fire and what made you decide to do this the I mean if you look at the press everyone is is down playing hi hydroxy clerk when well we have a healthcare system Sanford that's world renowned for their research abilities and and they've been working in several different areas to have that kind of capacity in our state is a real gift to us and I was watching what's happening across the country in everybody reacting to the virus and not being proactive to really make sure we're getting in front of that that we could give a therapeutic to folks so that they didn't necessarily have to hide from the virus they can get out there and fight it off and make sure that they could get back to their daily lives as well so for me it was it's part of the solution you know we're doing some you know recommendations to folks to follow CDC guidance and we're also making sure that we're using technology to do contact tracing but then having the ability to have this drug trial in our state for such a wide percentage of our population allows us to really go on offense and go after that and make sure we have an option for those individuals who do get sick when I heard about this that you're going to do this last weekend I knew you were going to be dragged through the mud by the press Washington post didn't you know pull any punches on that if they gave the gave the expected response they said that you were the one who said there's not gonna be a statewide ordered to stay home it's the individuals not the government should decide and now you've got a meat processing plant with four hundred people that are sick do you want to respond to that at all well you know that articles completely inaccurate and it doesn't surprise me because I've seen it a lot not just in the national press but even here locally with details being left out of articles but you know that the pork processing plant that we do have today that the hot spot that we have an outbreak going on there is a critical infrastructure business regardless on if I had chosen to put a shelter in place order across the state of South Dakota that plant would have been up in operating because it's such an important part of our food supply and and frankly having it running as a national security issue so that would have not impacted that issue but you know the post decided to not use the fax and and run with an agenda that that I think is unfortunate for the public I think it's a great disservice to our public when they don't tell all the facts because they're misleading them and creating this fear culture and at a very important time to discredit people that are scientists or doctors or researchers our elected officials during a period of time when we need to rely on the fact that they have information and have access to information ought to do that at an important time like this one literally is the difference between life and death I think it's a shame do you have because there are those cases for the meat processing processing plant but outside of that how many how many people are sick in your state we have a less than a thousand positive coal bit nineteen cases in the state of South Dakota about three hundred of them are recovered but but the vast majority of the cases are are tied to this meat processing plant and in that county that's affected so we have over five hundred cases that are tied directly to that incident there so we we also are coming up with more positive cases because we're aggressively testing in that area you know we put all of our resources there to be proactively testing people isolating them during the contact treating to camp out down so the rest of our state is doing very very well R. and we'll get this one under control and make sure that we're slowing down the spread but I think what I've constantly had to remind the public is the science of the virus tells us we can't stop it so we have to use the facts that we have in front of us just to slow it down so that we can take care of people in our health care system so that's been my constant message to the people of South Dakota and that all the control in the world is in their hands that that they have a personal responsibility to make good decisions to take care of themselves and their families and I've I will do all that I can to partner with them but ultimately that responsibility does lie with them so before we before we change subjects I want to stay on the meat processing plant one more time so I want to get ahead of something that I think could be damaging from the other side the conspiracy theories are this is a way to make pre processing plant that had been sold to China but the and I know that there have been stories than you know old people are been saying all its Chinese me it's not Chinese made its all American made is just owned by China but have you found patient zero yet has there was there anyone in the factory that had traveled to China or somebody from China the travel to the factory or or not do you know what we do know who patient zero is because we obviously have identified every single person and have been working with them in the state of South Dakota that did test positive we do not have any ties to China from this outbreak at this plant and I think that you know this is a this is a plant that originally there was a couple of positive cases but a lot of the spread that we're seeing is happening outside the plant the plant is on pause right now are we seeing a groping cases but a lot of the folks who work here to deliver our nation's food supply you know they live in close quarters they've got a lot of family members and neighbors and housing developments that are there sometimes two to three generations I'm very closely living together so a lot of that spread is happening at home in this plant in particular has a few I think seventy different languages spoken added there's thirty seven hundred holy you up there so you know there's it's a unique situation that that I think are you know people over and blaming blaming the plants and I win a lot of the spread is happening outside of the walls of the plant and that's why we are have a pause going on to put up mitigation measures inside that plant and then also do an education process with a lot of the folks that work there I have a guest on who is a guy who watches the cattle auctions and you know he's he's really big in the cattle industry in people with knowing the average media person would not but he's he just issued a report recently that said that we are we have plenty of cattle there's lots of cattle coming up ready for auction but there's no slaughter houses there there were no processing plants to to get this meat from farm to table how concerned are you about the the food supply when it comes to meet well a small disruption in the system has huge effects across our food supply chain and that's one of the reasons that this plant is so important this is a pork processing plant but it's the same in the cattle industry and and we hassle it's the largest it's the largest pork plants in the country is it not it is it's a very large and and it feeds other plants that refine the products even more that end up on your grocery store shelves so we have five hundred fifty producers you know and a lot of them South Dakota producers that take their hogs there and then all that food and up you know right here on American shelves to feed feed folks each and every day and you know the virus does not travel through food products so that is one thing that I think we have to really be aggressive and telling folks as they get concerned about the food that would be coming through this plant and that just absolutely is not even a factor the food is wonderful and it will be safe for people to eat but I mean I think in the cattle market to we see a lot of manipulation are there some investigations that need to happen with our packing industry and control and alliances get streamlined another becomes more and more efficient it also allows for a few players to manipulate the market and the supply chain and that's why I've said for years clan and I haven't known you for years but I have said for years that it's important we keep family farms because it's important we grow our own food at this country never want another we never want another country to control our food supply because then they control us and if we have one or two people controlling the whole supply chain or in the exact same situation so this this diversity having five hundred fifty different producers that feed into this one plant is important because of diversity and it it's same with them making sure that we do have a national security issue taking care of because we don't have one person controlling our entire food supply I think the America first stores the hippies would say think globally act locally is beginning to ring true to more more Americans right now it is I think there's a lot of things that are ringing true to Americans today it's about the importance of this country are what makes us special the importance of the constitution what powers it gives to the people and to the states and to the federal government and I've decided that every opportunity I have I'm going to use it if you educate folks really on why United States of America the best country in the world and why it deserves to be preserved and in times of crisis is when you see people overstaffed and grab power and we're seeing that in so many places of the country and I took an oath to uphold the constitution of the United States when I served in Congress and I took an oath to uphold the constitution here in the state of South Dakota and I'm constantly guided and and using that.

take any action you think it's necessary I think that when our constitution and foundations become even more important yes that helps yes wise decisions based on facts and based on science and not be manipulated emotionally into making poor decisions that are for the benefit of the people you know it's a it's amazing to me you're a you're exactly right on the here when the constitution matters is when it's popular to do the other thing it was also amazing to me that people have flocked to the government taking more and more power and they do you have been such an out liar and been hammered by the national press because you gave I think some of the you've given some of the best statements of anyone in this crisis talking about the rights of the people and it's up to the people to take care of themselves has it been shocking to you to be on the receiving end of such backlash for just for standing up for the American principle no I would say it hasn't been done I mean I think I I I came from this morning to be I want to be a farmer and rancher my whole life my whole life kind of got turned down when my dad was killed in an accident but I you know I served in the state legislature I was in leadership here I went to Congress for eight years I got a good education on the divisiveness of politics and the national media.

R. like it was freaking neck or back in the days of the late nineties when I lived in east walnut hills when people would be cruising out in about getting their free gone in the middle of the Sunday afternoon into the evening which was just a big annoyance it was not with the health issues and the contamination in the infection risk that a lot of people all of us are dealing with right now with this coronavirus issue in law enforcement downtown effectively you know T. are having to deal with that as a result of Friday night with idiots and morons call thing in their faces and their faces and everything else I think it was a a joke laughter gag people not taking it seriously which I guess is always a concern and always a problem but the inconsistency of messaging going back just a couple of weeks doesn't help so it does look this is challenging for all of this and it's not that I have a lot of places to go and things to do but I personally like the idea of being and I don't like leaving the house I'll be honest I mean I'll go to the park I walked the dog I go on I got to get out I got a hunt and gather I gotta go to the store I don't wanna go to the store and yeah I've had people there like will will people are gathering to many things that's why there's a shortage of stuff that's why they shorten the hours closing stores at night and disinfecting and cleaning and restocking and there's some truth to that and then you know maybe you've already heard all these things this press conferences maybe we'll hear from Mike to whine a little bit later he yesterday tweeted any said he hoped that they wouldn't have to have a press conference today if something changes I don't I don't know what's really change they look at the science they look at the updated numbers they're getting worse hopefully not as bad as expected they say next couple of weeks thousand new infections are more to be done there's a lot of testings IT issues in shortage issues in Intel you test everyone you don't really know where we are in challenging does this make sense to you how do you feel about everything right now and I'm not wearing by the way because I've already had messages about this were people you shouldn't have the M. a N. ninety five mask you should share it with people in need the N. ninety five mask that I have or not the super duper Mack Daddy ones but they are listed as a ninety five a couple of them and I I'd had them when I was doing some scraping of paint and working with some insulation issues around the house I don't think anybody wants those that are a little bit older and what I have when I've been out in public and I got some stairs mostly nods in this is the interesting thing I had to go to the store the other day and I saw this in action taken a picture but I was just trying to get my crap and get the hell out of the store let's try to get called on it touch anything were particles of bin or anything else but it's weird there were people wearing masks in the store they're shutting some stores limiting access to like twenty per I was at Walmart I think the twenty percent capacity is what they're allowing people in now one in one out it's like going to a club or something back in the day when I don't go to clubs now so much notice but and then maybe even directing traffic is one way in and out of miles city to keep that distancing issue of six feet ten feet I I like it for distance is good I don't anybody close talking the lot of the stuff is is happening now and I I saw a guy with like a skeleton mask for like the stuff my aunt was making giving the nurses she's in Kentucky and helping those around her and I was joking around I got they got a couple but they hate you first I got hate mail because I said to my aunt's mass was skeletons and skulls on them might make some people nervous I couldn't imagine having a nurse over top of me actually I can but that's neither here nor there if I was in need in the nurses over top of me trying to provide medical attention or a doctor I see they like skeletons a mask I might freak out but on the other hand help me if I needed is all I'm trying to say and they were in need of mass otherwise I I have a sometimes I had I I was gifted over the holidays and I lie I got a couple of them they're sort of you can put on your head but you can put him around your neck and I think they're called slouchy or something like that it's like a tube and then you can sort of put it up to cover your face but I'm in the store there's a guy and he's got a skeleton mask in he's going through and I'm thinking about it just a few weeks ago just a few months ago if you walked into a store and you had a mask on they'd want you to take it off let alone one that had skeletons on it looked arguably Intimidator somehow like you you like you were shifty now we want to wear masks just the irony in the straightness of the strangeness of the world we're living in right now what do you senior you wearing mask are you intending to he did now are we on the right path then I got a lot of questions couple lines open standing bow coming up I'd like to hear from the ladies as well

"If it's snowing outside you can always enjoy your weekend inside I'm all about that about an hour ago there was a hearing in Hamlin county probate court to determine if there should be a trial to decide if councilman to my Denard should lose your seat on council she is you know is facing federal charges extortion bribery and a group of registered voters yesterday filed a lawsuit in probate court saying she should no longer allowed to be to decide issues facing the city that she essentially needs to get the hell out and that was filed yesterday by attorney Curt Hartman who joins me now again on the acute hearing centers dot com hotline he was in probate court this morning I believe are in accord with judge Ralph Winkler for a status conference current welcome back and happy how are you thanks for having yeah no problem so the status conference today what was what what were you looking for you obviously had filed this yesterday in court what what what happens is a status conference what is that our coverage today and it's kind of you know this is a unique process or really use process in terms of just wanna get a tan the rather quickly make sure where we're going and they will do so he both parties the city solicitor's office with the pair and the attorney for Mr than art will present they have been served with the complaint in the summons so every those pulmonary matters have been taken care of Hey and ready to proceed further that's the main thing that we got dressed today that subject matter all parties there are other attorneys back on March ninth braided basically on initial hearing figure out the remaining issues one issue that came up and just raise that with the city with this you know this kind of work the solicitor wears multiple hats in terms of who she represents and all that and whether or not they're gonna be able to proceed forward with this case and wide approach hello better than patient Mister nada in our capacity in the council member so the city solicitor indicated that they're assessing that the situation as well affecting the impact or implications of the pending federal criminal case and how that might impact this case so nothing definitive on that front but those issues are out there would be should be addressed by March ninth to March so today's stands confident with the city solicitor as opposed to her her personal a defense counsel right our motion offense county okay all right he does that individual that did the lawyer there for her offer anything and make a statement or standing relative to well what things that we need to know about what he's a com not much any of the games is one area of static he acknowledged receipt of the complaint on her hair out and that's pretty much it from from her side you know the focus right now I think that initial hurdle the dresses but the city solicitor's office they have problems too thank you got to do well first they got to determine that in statute whether they would proceed with the case but if they are going to proceed with the case they also got the site are they really that person to make that call at the prosecute the case will still be responsible prosecutor need to come when you expect an answer on that is it that the March error error or to be in the next few days I think will be the March ninth hearing date that could be closer now publicly something earlier this hour to my just simply says he's resigning which I I think it's probably the best option at this point correct and I'm just trying to get men to make a point that that you said you know I read the newspapers I understand you know that that kind of all she could make a decision by next week and he said you know it's true for Billy's eyes not that he was saying he should or shouldn't how about if you were to resign that that would make the case in this portion of the of the matters Mr Nardi go away her attorney who represented didn't really same bopper down on that at all like it's kind of something you're talking not only did I get that that that question or issues out there I've been kind of knowledge yet that the reports out there I didn't didn't say yea nay she's inclined one way or the other not attacked by one of the top of the news position as well if you're into them and no let's say you're on the other side of this thing you filed a lawsuit but let's say your help you you're working for a team in art in this case is there an advantage to drag this thing else for her personally the hell with the city but as far as personally goes is there any reason why she would drag this out our attorneys and say Hey time is on our side let's make this thing go on so we can cut a better deal I don't have enough information really to say one way or the other I mean it's a personal call that you don't know what all actors are going into our personal calculations so without that information it's just a guess work what do you think happens next week let's lay out next week because they said okay we'll we'll have a decision whether she steps down continues the fight sometime late next week but what what do you think's gonna transpire Monday through Friday next week well I I think those assessments are being made by internally with the best in art and her attorneys as I would expect them to be made just kind of evaluating you know okay thing where we want to focus our energy can is that the person is there space we can address the issues I mean so it's kind of weighing all the factors in and how you wish to proceed and charge forward I managed gonna long weekend for that's today is not a weekend tomorrow will not be a weekend holiday for Denard income but I'm sure they're going to be burn the Midnight all trying to figure out what to do here right right I think if we are serious matters this is estimated to be made on the spur of the moment I think you know it needs to be a deliberate that caught out process that she got a good legal counsel for that and programs available are you recording my her sister in making that decision either yeah I would think so attorney Curt Hartman filed this suit yesterday on this morning and acute hearing centers dot com hotline there is a status conference hearing this morning in judge Winkler's court and probate and again the reason why probate it is in play here because it has to do with that a I was in it obscures statue that allow this to go to because most people here way probate does not deal with will in the states and how the hell is this given their mother thank you to tell that we filed this under specifically because it goes to program so the following what the lawyers right now and the part of the larger came up a little bit today you know she has a right to a jury trial and so she wishes to participate in the probate court you would have a right to plant a church so that's all that you know that's part of the due process that she absolutely the title too right but but then you're also talk about dragging this thing on indefinitely too because now we're talking at maybe months or a year well not the probate court to the statute says visit the missile here which will be the main parts nine yeah the car within ten days and then the trial the car within that date back so this would be a good just you'd be empaneling a juror rather quick in this thing to say but I guess in a sense I'm thinking it's more like a a criminal or civil trial but in this case it's a probate one so it the wheels of move a little faster it certainly is interesting in some of the I guess myopic areas of law here but obviously that means to an end because that pushes the Denard issue fat and into the bottom line is I think the taxpayers and citizens energy group me Kurt deserve a quick up or down on this thing a quick resolution because I don't care what anyone says that the business of the city it's difficult conduct business when this axis hanging over all the subsequent members of council that yeah exactly and that you know that was the concern of Mr Miller are not going to do that you know they came to us and it sure doesn't provide recall doesn't provide critical mechanism I think that you know they would thought these were serious and grave up charges and the evidence against again enough is there something we can do and I'll give a shout out Brian private terming the attorneys I work with cake you know I've located the statute this is probably applicable beyond the the circumstance that city charter doesn't address the issue the general simply provide the means by which it could now be addressed that's good lawyer and write their body has some good Lauren current legal read have a great weekend thanks for coming on the show but I appreciate how good we can do well there take care Sir try to give an update on that too there's a little hearing and be heard from Kurt here what's going on and now of course it all is is in the camp of tonight in art at least in this point I don't know is is March ninth two late that would be the next hearing date I hope that something would happen here and it may be as early as Monday or Tuesday I haven't heard any word on this but I would think just looking at things the optics of this are not good follow on social media somewhat there's a lot of people wishing to my did not all the best I wish to mind at this is not a personal thing some political thing for me it's it's an honesty thing and especially when you come out and you you thank everyone on social and say thanks a lot of you sent my way messages prayers hugs all that stuff thank you to everyone who made a conscious decision allow me due process before casting judgment judgment is so easy I don't know if she's guilty or innocent I think pretty strongly if I were to guess she's guilty simply because of the evidence in the case and that motion presented by the federal bureau of investigation you know if this were a case where it's he said she said if it was a I don't know a Republican member of council against to my Denard and he said this he said that okay that's that's different right that's testimony that is an accusation where as in this case you have things like Natalie conversations recorded you also have telephone conversations recorded you have text messages and other electronic communications there that are were gathered by someone who is working directly with the federal bureau of investigation that's a pretty damning case there to get out from under to explain that away would be like moving a mountain she deserves the opportunity is no question about it the opportunity to explain these these allegations but it's not looking good right now further more to say that the city of Cincinnati is being held hostage would be accurate and I think the thing I can't get past in which she talks about Hey you know what don't judge me judgment is so easy well this is the same to my dinner and I think this is the that to me this is the critical thing that should tell you everything you did now regardless of where you stand on the issue and take away the emotion take away that she's a black female take away the fact that he's a democratic away she's in a gang of five all these things that you stand for that her her personal beliefs are surrounded by a strip all that away and just look at the fact that she's elected lawmaker okay what when she issues a motion on January eighth at the same time she was willingly going and talking to you shouldn't have any money we know that that's a fact we also know when she went on vacation when she didn't have any money so she got money from somewhere when she didn't have any money and when you come out you say in motion relative to Evans landscaping M. creating fake minority business with Doug Evans is in prison for twenty one months because of the city should be he should be the Huber said you have to exploit these situations you deserve federal prison time but relative to to my Denard when you come out and and declare a motion following the Evans landscaping case and say this and I'm reading from her own words her words I direct the city Cincinnati review and edit sections in this bill because it would allow the city to suspend a person or business from receiving city contracts are participating in city procurements when they are charged with a crime that if they're convicted would be the basis for their being the bard meeting she's what when it suits her she wants it to be about not being a judge this is a judgment free don't judge me how dare you judge don't judge.

"Commitment of the taxpayers Hamlin county do you feel obligated to go back to them for permission to spend the money well you know so if you mean beyond what has already been committed to by the taxpayers yeah I know I do these things differently than the situation with the sale price for basic services which is just like you said you know to do the basic work of the county through the courts in the jail when we're talking about these kinds of assets where outside of the scope of the kind of the mandated services of the county I do think that the taxpayer has to be asked the question is this something that you want to invest in just like it was done with union terminal it's just like was done with the stadiums because these are things that are really outside of the basic work the county now also John Cranley said when we voted that five year incremented sending a guest in March that it ended in March and that Cranley also thought that should be going back to the taxpayer instead of those on the commission simply extending it I know some of you to referendum probably they're not going to get the signatures but none the less why did you put that back on the ballot instead of making citizens go through a referendum well it's just what I described his cell that county is woefully underfunded through the sales tax much lower than every other county in the state of Ohio particular appear counties in so we are just trying to do the business of the county and provide a coordinated nine one one system provide deputies in the court rooms provide chairs patrols provide the court system places for kids and elderly folks in this community so this is what we do as a county and so I feel like it's my job and people like me to do a job to make sure that we are doing a good job of that if it were something different like union terminal for instance that's very different from idea and that obviously should be put in from the taxpayers but I do basic county services is something that I was elected to make sure happen and so you know that we are still under funded by where the sales tax because the state tax and and you know as you said the sales tax is not performed as predicted here we find ourselves in a position and other counties dead and and they also took direct vote to increase the amount of sales tax and so that is what we are also doing in Hamilton County policy question gonna let you go is the success or failure of the bangles on the field is that a factor in your decision making well you just heard Tom talk about the economic impact of the bangles and so I know there is some relevance to whether or not they're winning or losing but but I think that there is an economic development impact no matter what to the positive and so you know that's something you know we would have to evaluate but but they they have an economic impact whether they're winning more lives so even if the bangles staying they still generate a hundred fifty million dollars a year even when they stink and if they got better might be two hundred million dollars a year I am what I I would love for them to get better will do well yeah yeah yeah going to get better yeah AJ green is not playing Sunday so maybe not even about an hour ago he said he can't play so they are now but I lastly because you're a policy maker Tom's a lawyer and I love lawyers you know but how is it a deal with Katie and Troy in my car they like because the perception is different in reality sometimes someone is perceived a certain way when they're not that way at all namely me but none the less how is it how is it you too how's it actually talk to them have you encourage them to come out to meet with those who pay the bills to actually engage and explain things like Tom just brought up these are things that are not in the public domain things you have said the best advocate for the bangles would be Troy would be Katie would be might somebody to come out which they will not do media interviews to say this is why it's happening this is what's going on why don't they do that well I can answer for them but they have done some public statements related to the agreements that we've had recently and so I don't know if that's it I haven't been around as long as some others so I don't know if that's a change in course but they end up public statements to try to explain their position on things and you know I I do want to say that the renegotiation that we did through the demo you that Tom alluded to is a really positive step Sir taxpayers and the bangles were an equal party to that so my experience with the bangles is that you know they they're they're priority is to win but also eating experience for fans and so if if we can work through that to the benefit of the taxpayer and get them to pay for a tax I mean so you know that's kind of where we have landed so my experience with them is not as negative I think as what happened in the past three hours keep working with Troy in Katy new generation they're gonna own the club at some point the future and if there's a new relationship is going to have to be involved with the bangles leadership itself to convince us they're not long suffering taxpayers and season ticket holders they don't see a product on the field because unfortunately what they do on the field leads and everything else that happens what this town was like in nineteen ninety one ninety two is completely different than what it is today and I just encourage them to have a little more PR and actually come and talk about it and do a better job communicating why is valuable to have them here I think that's what will you pass that on to only that the combat well there hi Denise tree house thank you thank you thank you she's the president of the commission Tom go ahead no I was gonna say in terms of the bangles as Denise was saying it's one thing on the field but I can tell you in the office and when people talk about the commitment of the bangles to this city when you look at what they just did within the last six months the thirty million that basically could have gone into their pocket they said could do two things with that money county please go over in a choir that seventeen acres and now we're going to turn that into green space and we can use that for tailgating and it will be used for park purposes and special events and all that in addition to that we're gonna put off for a good seven eight years major potential major renovations to the state okay so for for the taxpayer and understand that the county owes the bangles thirty million dollars in their pockets and so the bangles said don't give us the thirty million use it for other county purposes right and so you look at that and that's a long term commitment by the bangles to say go and do that that's going to improve our city is going to prove the front yard to the city in terms of the stadium just take care of it so we don't have riverfront stadium again right we don't want the fall apart like it happened before and so they did both of those things which right now it's in excess of three hundred million that the taxpayers here in Hamilton County saved all are not paying maybe never pay it buddy if they sign up for long term after twenty twenty six now go into the deal somehow but you would hope that that the taxes that sixty two percent approve back in ninety six and said build these new state hello now encourage him to do that so I want to know I think well yet sixty two percent of people saying doing that to keep our our professional teams here and then if you said all right now are you gonna take care of those stadiums which means you also have to update them all right do across the country that's a good investment because it has a return if they want to be a lot easier Tom they would definitely it would help if I am much better moves on Sunday we got to run thank you very much bill coming in he was on and she was on the cute hearing center dot com hotline newsradio seven hundred WLW and now a moment with any finger it's time to bring back on and enjoy life he's the kind that

"And we have taste of Cincinnati. The highlight the kick off the summer season, I think is says a lot about where cities had to despite the dysfunction of allege leadership. Because at the end of the day, you know, at it's about me, and it's about you, getting doing our jobs doing what we're supposed to be doing handling our business and then cut loose and having some fun and is dysfunctional as things are not just here in Cincinnati and Hamlin county but hell look, what's happening in Washington DC. We are still getting stuff done. The economy despite the drop in the Dow days still humming along, because we remain optimistic that we can handle our business. We can do what we're supposed to do. We go to work, we pay our taxes. We raise families we live our lives. We interact with another ninety nine and a half percent of the time. We're all cool with each other as it should be. Unfortunately, five percent of the population or half a percent of the population are criminals and politicians. If we can get rid of that group, we'd be great, right me.

So you know, as often said it's ninety nine and a half percent of us that are right. That are the good people. It's a half a percent of people that are clowns.

"Decrease year to year Hamlin county heroin coalition issued alert that seven people died this weekend from overdoses in Hamlin county, another fifteen where admitted and treated and fortunately live, but there's been very very very busy week for first responders. We have not seen this in a while joining me on seven hundred wwl w is Dr Alexa, Marco. She's our corner here in Hamlin county and Dr Mark good morning. How's everything warning? I bet it is. I mean, all of a sudden, it's been quiet and we saw I said, the trends are starting to decline a little bit when it comes to heroin and opiates and. Fennel deaths, and all of a sudden, bam, we have this, what happened. I think things go up and down. We, we don't start really paying attention to spike here there. And unless we're seeing a trend and overall since last year we're down actually not last year. But since twenty seven last year we were down about a quarter a little bit less than a quarter this year. We're on pace maybe lightly in numbers. And I recently attended the annual highest corners association meeting in Columbus, and we were all talking about that. In fact, we were across the state. Everybody's seeing about the same ratio reduction, so about twenty twenty five percent overall reduction in overdose deaths since twenty seventeen we did talk. However about the number. Of different overdoses that we're seeing mixed with sentinel. Cocaine meth allotted different. Most of the overdoses are not just one drug, a there are so many mixtures combinations out there now that if you're buying drugs, on the street you have no idea what mixture you're gonna get. What might be in it? And until we actually get into our lab and tested, and we couldn't tell you by looking at it either. Again, these are trailing indicators too, because I believe you're saying that there are a number of people who died is well in the last week, and you're not quite sure yet, if you suspect it to overdose, but we don't know. Fully so those numbers are continuing to be updated. That's why we when we report them, we report them as suspected overdoses until we actually duty on top, and then run the toxicology on the body fluids. We can't confirm that. And there have been rare occasions last year, when we think it was actually a couple where we thought they were overdose stuff, but it actually ended up being natural due to Kodiak reasons or, or other reasons, but not that they didn't have, you know, legal drugs in their system, they did. But the cause of death appeared to be natural most of the time, though, are suspected overdose deaths are really bad. In fact, there have been a few cases last year, the year before where we thought they might be natural then toxicology came back and you know, positive for lethal amounts of, of elicit drugs. My doctor likes me some ARCO, Hamlin county coroner this morning on. The hearing centers dot com hotline and talking about the spike this weekend, and the number of heroin and opiate related deaths as well as people presenting what the overdoses who didn't die as well spike in two you mentioned you're talking the with the other corners to which, by the way, that sounds like a hell of a convention tunnel apps. You. Boy. What they do the case reviews right after dinner on Saturday. That sounds about the stories later at night. Get pretty good, though, after a couple of cocktails maybe doc. Stories stories or any different nights during the day. Party. So this, you're sitting on is there something that's is more communication, that we have that we don't know about relative to other heirs because this was not exclusive to Cincinnati. It's happening, state Columbus and Cleveland and elsewhere to in his at sharing a coalition of sharing information back and forth, so you can see trend statewide. How does that work we? Well, we all share information, and we're constantly in contact with each other. And we also work with our federal partners. The DA the US attorney's office the FBI, and we're trying to do is work in conjunction. 'cause obviously you know drugs. Don't stop at the county borders and their traveling through our area with the intention of going to other regions in Ohio, Indiana and Michigan so, so forth. And sometimes we're the first ones to catch him. Sometimes they pass through. We don't. Catch him in there in Dayton, and Columbus. And we do talk to each other, because a lot of times, we're finding the new fennel analogues. We share that information with the other lab so that they can look for it because, you know fee don't look for something. You're not gonna see it. So we share that information. In case we haven't we haven't seen something they have. And it's, it's really useful to have that constant communication, the other thing, too, is when we have a spike in certain area like the car fan, though, we I saw it, it was actually originally reported out of Pennsylvania, and then we thought coming down seventy one basically from the Cleveland at area Akron, Franklin. And then the following weekend we saw the spikes. So, and we had already been forewarned by our buyer colleagues in northeast Ohio, so we, we constantly sure. Formation. And, and it's very helpful and if somebody has a quicker faster more efficient way to test something we share that information as well. And I mean bottom line is, is that when somebody discovers something, killing a lot of people, we try and disseminate that information to as many of the first responders long, and health care people as we can so that everybody's prepared now this weekend. That number of fifteen eve is that you were emergency room visits, that you were talking about that was actually within a twenty four hour. So that was from, I believe six AM, Saturday to six AM on Sunday. So because otherwise you think will fifteen over, you know, if you consider a weekend, Friday thirties, money, that's not that many. But in a twenty four hour period. That's why the alert went out for us, having seven overdoses in a weekend is actually not that unusual that, that's incredible. So when you see these patterns, though, of, of overdoses isn't a predictable data pattern is at a much like the way to look at the forecast, we generally know that weather moves from the from the southwest of the northeast. So we can see the clouds coming in, if it's storming in Indianapolis and Tennessee tech down that way,.

"Out of the river. And even if you're a small business person, even if you're a medium size business person, you watch the antics and the nonsense it's occurred. It's driven this away in caused this to happen on the Kentucky side of the river. What winds up happening is it has deterrent effect of? Anyway, you got to be really serious to want to do business in Hamlin county in the city because it's so damn hard to do it. And I guarantee today Denise three house. My friend needs is going to be on with Willie at twelve o'clock today, the president of the Hamlin county commission, and she's going to say, well, you know, what we're going to move forward with the project. I have a choice. We're going to double down. We're going to do this. And the question is going to be asked about government, and and all of this nonsense when it comes to copy and with the city's doing in the fighting me, well, it'd be the city's fault. And then you talk to somebody from city council in the council safe nuts counties fault, and it's like two petulant five-year-old's fighting over a lollipop. Meanwhile, stuff's getting done in Kentucky. And I'm having a flashback to when I first moved down twenty years ago because that's the way it used to be nothing would get done on the Ohio side, and we'd go and have fun. We'd buy our liquor or tobacco in our entertainment and Kentucky. Remember those days if you're around long ago, that's where you'd go to have fun new part in a Levy that was it does he only show in town. And we'd go, well, why can't we have this Ohio side? And then eventually eventually despite all this. We it took them a long time, but we got the banks going, and I think in large part. Yeah. The banks, but you also had the redevelopment gateway quarter in downtown Cincinnati is booming. And now Kentucky feels like they're left out. So does Kentucky. Do we're gonna do this ovation site. We're gonna make it like our own version of the banks, which is great it's competition. But I'm going to predict certainly the next ten fifteen years as he stadiums. Get to be thirty years old that pendulum's going to swing the other way. And we're all going to be going back to Kentucky like we did twenty years ago. Something's gotta be done about the city and the county enough already enough of this nonsense. It's a it's a bunch of crap is the city controls the city or the county controls the city, but you can't have this continuing on forever and all this fighting because nothing gets done it in despite I shouldn't say that you're going. We'll slowly you just said look at all the development downtown could you imagine if we had northern Kentucky's leadership and the way they do things running things in Hamlin county. Do you do you think that the city and the county would be what thirty million dollars in the red each? The answer would be no. I would think that they would be flush with cash if they could streamline it make government efficient. That's good for everybody. It's good to do business you'd have more business than you know, what to do with the the population would continue to grow. Am I only want understanding how the this dynamic and how stupid it is? And how territorial everything is when it comes to the city and county government because this is a prime example right here. There's no way in hell it should be happening. But it is then good for northern Kentucky. What good for me, and you 'cause I could just as easily drive my car my truck across the river like I did twenty years ago to go have fun. I go to reds game and go to Bengals camp amount of concert. I got river. Ben, I got PNC pavilion. I got the new ovation site. And what's interesting about it is if you're the promo west people, you do Bunbury and all these ex. Where do you think these young acts that they want a book at the concert venue at the banks are going to go. Are they going to go to northern Kentucky? Or are. They going to go to the banks. They're going to go northern Kentucky. Because promo west is the one is is the entity that books all their shows elsewhere across the country. That's who you're going to deal with. They don't care if they're in the Ohio the act doesn't care if they're on the Ohio side of the Kentucky doesn't matter. They will deal with who they're used to deal with it. It's built and hey, we're going to book you in Pittsburgh in a book you can Columbus. We're gonna book in Cincinnati. It's one stop shopping. It's officiency whether it's government or private industry works best. When things are streamlined. Enough already with the BS enough five one three seven four nine seven thousand eight hundred big one pound seventeen we've got to blow the system up because it's detrimental, we are succeeding. We are we, you know, we're we're succeeding in spite of our leadership seven hundred seven hundred wwl w yeah. What couple.

"That as race for transit. We're not doing. So in such a large Bashar that we put us also in anti competitive from an economic development perspective because putting making us the highest tax counting Ohio's not good optics. You you want to track generally, we tend to be more fiscally conservative here. But I guess that's the way government is turning over the last number of years is to spending more money or increasing the burden of taxpayers have to fund. People who buy stuff have to fund I in I think for most people against him too. Well, it's sorta it's the streetcar it's it's a boondoggle debacle in his is this money going to bail out the streetcar think that's ultimately going to be the cell. You're going to have over voters tied. Poor tune Hamlin county Commissioner I think he's always coming on the show this morning and doing the hard work of the people. Thank you very much. I appreciate having the time in the voice, and you do a great job appreciate the compliments and likewise tiptoes nice to be on a Monday. But I will say this. As certainly as a county has turned more blue. We are seeing the amount of money being spent going up for the taxes going up to were handling county will be the highest in the state of Ohio this past hard to fathom. But that's what's going on.

"On the woman courtroom at ten o'clock today as well. Hell was gonna break loose in there with a gang of five texting Email scandal will get to that a little bit. I though a guy has been sentenced to three months in prison for conspiring to distribute heroin laced with cardinal in attempting to then murder a witness. He believed he was going to testify against him, which is just part and parcel for the opioid epidemic here in the greater Cincinnati northern Kentucky, Indiana. Air in northern Kentucky in Indiana area heroin overdose deaths declined though something like twenty percent year to year from twenty seventeen to twenty eight and went from five hundred seventy two years ago to four forty last year, which is amazing thing and something new they're going to try which is gained popularity at west and Seattle and Portland and elsewhere. It's called LEED law enforcement assisted diversion, which finally we're getting some common sense when it comes to trying to help people who are addicted get off of this stuff, and it's a five hundred thousand dollar grant we received it's going to go to hire more bodies. But Hamlin county commissioners today are going to vote to approve this diversion program. And joining me on seven hundred w w talk about that is Newtown police chief Tom sign is also head of the Hamlin county heroin coalition. Good morning chief. How're you doing? Good boys. A lot going on in there. Yeah. A little bit today. Little bit today. Thank god. Your last name is it young or Denard or sitting failed or? You could be having a worse day. But we'll save that for a little bit later on. I know. We just had an issue in November were voters went to the polls and resembling defeated an issue that would have called for more lax enforcement of drug crimes because then the notion is nationwide and not so much here in southwest, Ohio. But you know, we're locking people in other states, as you know, Tom sign in for the low level drug crimes. And that's what this this issue in November seek to remedy. We don't really have that here. As I understand it. The drug courts are are pretty lenient, or at least maybe not forgiving, but but more likely to put people into version this is doubling down on that. Which I think is a wonderful thing. We don't want to lock people up or addicted. We want to get him treatment. What does this do? Yeah. Well, you talk about issue. One issue one had its own issues with the constitutional amendment. But a lot of people Greek with some of the some of the sentencing reforms some of the probation reforms, and this was the brainchild of top balance of the task force and quick response. Went down to a conference in two thousand seventeen in Atlanta. Brought this back this lease program work with Commissioner tree how chief of staff Alexander coalition coordinator, Emily manning, and they worked so hard on this for a couple of years, and like you said got a grant, and what it's gonna do is one of the districts in Cincinnati is going to be a pilot program for this and was low level offenders that are going into jail, you know, a day or two couple days or a week or whatever it may be can we instead of taking them to jail deport them to treatment. Ultimately, you know, said in your intro. You talked about the supply side going after the dealer, and it will work on demand site. We've taken this approach from the coalition. It's gotta be both. And part of that is we can't just keep sending these people that are addicted to jail, obviously. Addiction. You can't punish addiction out of someone. So can we get them treatment? Give them a longer term care about being you get them off the drugs, you get them back into society. They're paying taxes, and they're not doing some parochial crimes. These are low level offenses, you could you communities all over the country. How a program of like this like you said Seattle's got it in those communities if it was to expand could decide what the crimes of prostitution low level thefts those type of things instead of clogging up the jail with that send them to treatment. Get them care. It could be used for mental health along with addiction. So you know, what I think about the talker. Some this morning here. Law enforcement is working on a we're the ones that are tasks for trying to solve both addiction mental health, poverty, all these social issues. And I think what we're trying to do is a coalition is instead of long horsemen trying to handle all this can we be the link to the professional built up that infrastructure. So we get some of these social issues that caused crime police response and get them help in Seattle. They're doing I guess, right. Is they will refer these individuals to counselors to to case managers, right? Social workers in the like that that drill down and try to figure out what the hell is going on. And then get them in the support services, which is great. We've got the case managers, but do we have enough support services here in Hamlin county and Cincinnati and northern Kentucky to be able to do this. Or I think that's something we've been working on we've got to build up that infrastructure and the case manager importantly for this. But we're looking at case managers for addiction can relate start off in hospitals. Can they borrow some along? This is a long term mental medical help condition, and we can give that support long-term. We have a better chance of success. So can we get people to help them guide through the system of sticking someone in jail. And he's sitting there for thirty ninety days get out in the right back to what they were doing before we have a system and infrastructure setup case manager that get someone that long term care one of the programs that this is working on. And we're working on addiction site is re entry Rian she's doing a tremendous job of trying to get p. Get out of jail staying with them for twelve months. Give them support given job working on job resumes. We have companies will hire people with addiction. And if they fall off as long as they get back into treatment, they'll continue their job. So we're working on infrastructure. We're not there there definitely needs to be more done on your structure side. And that's what we're trying to do. Can we get funding to build up the systems case manager, can we get the support for the re entry? So they can continue this program. This is the system we allow people to fall off. And then we're kinda surprised when they go back to jail so thinking, no, let's revamp this. Let's redo this this make sure we get that long long-term or give people a better chance to get jobs and get off the drugs and in a lot of crime the supply look down it'll have a benefit on the backside. We just got to be patient and build up the systems, but no UTA. Point is very valid one that we got to work on. We have to do a better job and not just building up systems, but connecting all the pieces together. Yeah. That's exactly what it is chief Tom signing on the show this morning on seven hundred w l w and we're talking about this new program that they're hopefully at Hamill county. Commissioners will vote unanimously approved this program. It's a diversion program. Pre arrest diversion program for those who are addicted to Fenton all car. Sentinel and heroin and opioids rather than going to prison. It would be a diversion program in which you're teamed up the individual be teamed up with a case manager who would then get them and direct them to the resources needed. But you know, the real issue, here's the resources. I just was the king again, a mardi gras twenty nine thousand nine raises money for wonderful organizations, like Bethany house, welcome house. Chronically the money. We raise so far to date over two million dollars. It goes to buy meals for these homeless kids lives gives homeless because of the opioid epidemic because their parents are caught up in the opioid game. And it's heartbreaking to see all their money. Basically the feed these kids year round comes from one singular van a year in the mardi gras thing. And you know, when you put that in the context, we're going to have probably more people into the program, we need more for warm more money resources devoted to those agencies and agencies like that they're going to help people get their lives back together. There's no room laughed at the lockup for people who are low level drug offenders. However, if you're a law and order type of individual, I don't know how you cannot have a heart and go, you know, what we know that these people are committing crimes because they got to feed their diction, and they don't want to be in the situation, but which type of offenders would not be eligible for the program though. But it's going to be the level of offenders. That'll be eligible the prostitution or minor offenses and again. Some of the programs throughout the country. The jurisdiction sets up what it is. It's not going to be the the violent crime. And when you're talking about this is one of the things would issue one that you're talking about the sentence reform is look at the people we have in jail. The vast majority are digestion or addiction issues alone. Those minor crimes that were attached to that thing is let's keep the people who are violent those people. You know, we've talked about this before I spent ten years on swat in the copper twenty six years and people get upset about someone overdosing or by time cook, I get I understand ballot probation. But what about the drug dealer that we arrested seven eight nine times? What about that person that commits a robbery in we had an incident Newtown twenty years ago, where person get out on manslaughter robbed a store and shot the cork it why was that personnel? Why are those are the people that I won jail those violent offenders repeat violent offenders. And like you said the low level crimes which often are connected to a mental health issue or a addiction issue. Let's get them into treatment build up another system that allowed them to do that mental health systems. We we act like this doesn't impact us. It does look at the incident enforce park. Look at this. The incidence with addiction mental health and addiction and poverty impacts us. All you're talking about those those groups. You work with. Here's what's stopping, you know, this more than anybody else, you're constantly begging and borrowing just to survive to get food on the table for people and get them the services they need. This is what's wrong about this? We need to build up an infrastructure system that takes care of this. So it's not the police doing this everyday just trying to intervene or tool. Our biggest tool we use in law enforcement is jail. That's not gonna work on his issues. And I think from a coalition standpoint, you're seeing these incredible people working as a group, we gotta find a different way to do this. It's not just jail the answer. Can we get different avenues different tools to people? If we can do that, we have a better chance of reducing the impact of addiction, eventually mental health already all these other social issues that were we have a better chance of solving them. But you're right. We got it build up his infrastructure, you shouldn't beg and borrow for this. This is an important issue. It impacts. We should have those systems in place. Nurse should be a steady stream of funding for exactly chief. We do this every year. It's a you're welcome house centers, homeward bound and Bethany house and. Appreciate it. It goes. But they've got to count every penny. And I'm not saying yes right flush with cash, but there's so many other programs out there too. And these are just homeless kids in the area looking for meals and a lot of those victims essentially are caught up in the drug and not themselves, but their parents, and they're really here, you're affecting here to me. It's the kids right is here. You make a decision for whatever reason it is to start using opiates, and you get addicted to this thing, unfortunately kids are in play. And so there's so many horror stories, I'm sure you can relate to involving the children. These are the ones that we're trying to save particularly the families and the kids right, right? You're doing incredible work. And that's the thing that people don't see the everyday work. And it really is you're begging and borrowing constantly for whether it's cat or your your organizations or any other group that's out there trying to deal with addiction the poor part of the families the kids the begging and borrowing every day just to get enough to keep going. We should change this around which taking money that we save from jail system. And that was kind of the issue that was erased behind this. You want again attached to a country?.
