"How big is this story. You got i think nationally covert and you got trump. Yeah covert and trump. I think and then also the how confused you are over trump. Right you know you gotta get your kenwood bubble. Now i love trump. You have to get out there and meet at all. You're surprised that he lost. I thought it could go either way but what you don't understand is the level of animosity among those who don't like trump. I mean. I know people who think he embarrasses their country globally every day and they hate him for that. I look at his policies in the success. There that's all that's that's not good enough for them and in fact some of them would disagree with those. Don't care with the french. think about us anyway. I don't care. But i i look at the failure of the policy and the american people people were crazy that over obama getting elected because so many of them saw that as us looking good slash cool on a global basis. That's more important to them than policy policy matters most to me because they has said it often that if he loses it would be his own worst enemy he caused it himself by his behavior and he caused it himself with his first debate with biden that was he had a chance to redeem himself and people looked at that and said now that feels that that's enough lost from self in the first debate i think possibly but there is massive cheating. Also i believe because you can't tell me that biden who conducted no campaign whatsoever. He was in a basement. Got about eighty two million total votes obama in two thousand twelve sixty five million. And you can't tell me. That biden was seventeen million votes better than Than obama and fact any president mean by but that many more seven hundred million and and it's because of mail in balloting and absentee balloting. I don't mail in balloting. Should go away except when absolutely necessary but the reality is you're underestimating the level of animosity. The people that hated him really hated. I really hated him. I mean they were gonna vote against him three and a half years before the election and all he did was compound their reasons day after day after day. If you're in that camp that's exactly what they saw. I ran some numbers in hamlin county. Because you know how many county voted about seventy thousand votes against trump won so much for biden and you would think that sharonville blue ash. Montgomery shall we say or republican areas. They voted for biden. Yes when you lose blue ash in montgomery as a republican. You're in trouble. Yes and that's what happened. I mean do you think these people that that cheated and gave it to biden just forgot to not all the other republicans win. They forgot to not let the republicans pick up the house. They forgot to not let the democrats take the senate. They forgot all the gubernatorial and senate races across the country. They just forgot about those right. Well now there was a lot of under voting happen. Which is they vote for the top ticket and no one else and that was the measure of cheating like in wisconsin. Two hundred thousand people allegedly based upon the thousand sixteen standard. The votes wouldn't have counted and this was on johnson seren couple of days ago. But i i don't know how it turns out but i know that biden is..

"And they then try to use public pressure to get you to not uphold your fiduciary responsibility. To the people that elected you will be standing up for that, too. I say in confidence, the moment is going to be issues. 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 that they would come back with the documentation of what we agreed on. Okay, So if it's this is the county and you're saying here, the county is not doing the due diligence there 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 man driving 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 incompetent. He's a good man. So was it delivered And when we agreed not a gentleman's agreement when we had agreements around last 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 it, so it 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 that they said they were fair. Fair enough, But But there's also an emergency ordinance that was passed here, too, that that essentially gave the county that land correct. We're talking about a lot lot lot 1 13 No. No, no, that that lot lots warning 13 that the city is saying we want tohave self determination on and build on. That's our land, 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. We're supporting the county onto our lot 24 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. Stop 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 it's 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 I 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 say this to a commission president in history House, too, is looking competent. 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 problema west on the other side of the river. Ah, 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 a 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 and 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. Um, 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 in the in the in the spirit of cooperation with our county partners, and 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 our city manager and the previous city manager in this council, we also have a fiduciary responsibility to our taxpayers as the county does, 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 is no fight. And I also want to again predict that the permits will be issues 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 that the city owns so that that's the way ever get this thing done because this is about how many times have we had a Ah, I guess came at loggerheads and we couldn't get stuff done. Agreed on the Lord and Lady like you want to have to walk away, they count Do whatever you want to do that. I mean the band shell. 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..

"You know, I don't support further shutdown. Personally, I don't know Most Republicans do not.

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.

"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.

one person controlling our entire food supply I think the America first store is the hippies would say think globally act locally is beginning to ring true to more and 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 that to educate folks really on why United States of America the best country in the world and why it deserved to be preserved and in times of crisis is when you see people overstep 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 as my foundation and every decision that I make and then talking about it to people about why it's important I think a lot of people think in a time of crisis is when you can waive that aside and and 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.

"Our next guests grew up 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 Michael and 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 yeah we did we announce the first statewide on state backed clinical trial of hydroxy complained we really desire to go on offense against this virus so we partnered with our healthcare system is leading the a clinical trial will be Stanford 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 dated helping to find and facilitate that one compass 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 fires and what made you decide to do this the I mean if you look at the press everyone is is downplaying hi hydroxy clerk when well we have a healthcare system Stanford 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 hi 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 a 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 allow them to really go on offense and go after this and make sure we have an option for those individuals could you get back 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 added to give 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 article completely inaccurate and it doesn't surprise me because I've seen it a lot not just in 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 at the national security issues so that would have not impacted that issue but you know the coach 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 grave 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 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 process processing plant but outside of that how many how many people are sick in your state we have a less than a thousand positive Colvin 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 neat 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 our resources there to be proactively testing people isolating them during the contact tracing to contempt Allan's cell the rest of our state is doing very very well I 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 told 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 healthcare system so that's been my constant message to the people of South Dakota and that all the control of 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 have 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 a meat processing plant were times I want to get ahead of something that I think could be damaging from the other side the conspiracy theories are this is a remake pre processing plant that had been sold to China but the and I know that there have been stories and you know old people have 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 as 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 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 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 it happening outside the plant the plant is on pause right now are we seeing a girl thing 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 development there there sometimes two to three generations I'm very closely living together so a lot of that spread is happening at home in the plant in particular has a few I think seventy different languages spoken added there's thirty thousand holding you up there so you know there's it's a unique situation that that I think are you know people have been 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 I have a positive 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 Gaston who is a guy who watches the cattle auctions and he 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 are and and we have it's the largest it's the largest pork plants in the country is it not it is very large and and it feeds other plants that refine the products even more at the 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 hog there and then adapted and that you know right here in American child 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 would be coming through this plant that's just absolutely if not even a factor of it the food is wonderful and it will be safe for people to eat 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 enough it becomes more and more efficient it also allows for players to manipulate the market and the quite often 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 and because it's important we grow our own food at this country we 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 the diversity having five hundred and fifty different producers that feed into the one plan if they reported because of diversity and it it 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 store is 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 it's about the importance of this country are what makes us special of the importance of the constitution what powers it gives to

"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.

"Thursday morning at seven hundred WLW S. today I had on Julie at this on who is an opponent of the a lot in school I've never I give the things once fascinating to me because of the size and scope in war had especially in in suburbia often talk about Cincinnati Hamlin county and don't pay attention in the burbs in like in love is a beautiful place I've been there I've been there many times in the neighboring in a neighboring town and in November voters are shot on a massive school of the issue of customers about that twenty Bucks a month for a hundred thousand dollars with the home they own and answers all the levee failing the school recently cut seventy two jobs and have more is gonna come up transportation pay to play all that good stuff if you'll shoot it down again next month in March and Amy Krouse isn't studio this morning she is the superintendent of Loveland city schools on the acute hearing centers dot com hotline Amy good morning how are you good good good to see you thanks wow I never get superintendents coming in the morning I'm here in my office now I am if it's the other way around when I was a kid you had a different experience and my heart's beetle faster anyway just about a lot and I'm not about me let's talk about this the first task admittedly well it was one of the biggest I've ever seen when I came on the ballot one oh my god be your past ten low Loveland's passed at ten in a row I think up to that point was was admittedly that mistake putting that big an issue on the ballot so the intent was to complete the full master plan for our facilities in the district court early that was an over reach for the community from affordability Sam points a so we certainly had to regroup significantly after that defeat November right so in the past decade in this is something the no opponents than the opponent to love you brought up yesterday is that in the past decade even some like twelve teachers but tend to administers along with it with that and at the same time enrollment in Laughlin continues to decline or is in decline right now so for those that look at this and go while we're paying middle managers upper managers we got ten new administrators declining enrollment what's going on here is that is that on face why people should vote for this let me I know you're pushing the levee but I'm saying people see that go way too much blow here how do you justify that it was a true it was it isn't true so far what did that sort of a the danger in looking at a single piece of data you don't always get the full story so no different data different people are coded different ways to the state but the truth of it is when you look at from an organizational chart of administrators of district administrators and building administrators with a net gain of three over the ten years okay most of those are repurposed positions we had teachers doing supervisory roles but when mandates from the state to increase that teacher evaluations we had teachers become administrators and re purposing some roles such an actually negative three okay so but a neck and a three inch shrinking all is it a mandate does this is this top down management at the problem here because you have the state telling you you have to have these pieces appliance and so it is so it's it really was re purposing so in the case of to those repairs so it's not it's just simply changing job title out in order to make sure that were compliant with mandates from the state we from from a pupil administrator ratio if you look at the top ten school districts in the area on the news report we're right in the middle of having you know a lot more now we're not we're not top heavy from an administrative standpoint we're not top heavy from a pay standpoint salaries standpoint right right okay and in that makes sense to the people look at go head to the district's ranking reading administrators all those flats yeah okay but but it's not growing like you used to me and I think the boom days or it I live in Mason I know about this you know you start to see it slow down because you can only go so much that in and I think voters here that in that's that's important important thing to get out to as well one of the other allegations was eleven city schools your first year Amy you spent three times more than your predecessors and the yeah and then on top of that after this big levy as well one of the complaints is Hey you know we've got a problem paying as long as it's right size but more importantly we need a line by line where is this money going in the complaint is that you haven't been transparent outside the answer so are you familiar with open checkbook from the heart yeah I was on a founder looking open checkbook dot Gover dot org yeah yeah I know so so so all line items are available for I think we've I that was a problem our customer community to increase transparency our goal is to put I think the treasures goals but ten years up I think we're at five it takes awhile to redact that and get all that up so all those line items are there the year of the increase there was an increase of on an eight percent increase in spending that year attributed to healthcare premiums agenda today if there was anything at look at ten twelve percent increase in health and ten percent increase had been zero for three years which is amazing because I think we pay ten ten percent more months here I concerns were part of a consortium to try to control those Raszyn right region right so on that note though too I I you know look at those statistics because the cost you had is it also because you came in and their things well they they hired me to do a job here and I need to expect the here's a changing hard me to make sense twenty fourteen there was a levy twenty fourteen the levy was past five point six miles was passed in twenty fourteen to do exactly that increase increase opportunities for students increase AB resources for science technology support resources for mental health supports reading all of those things so we implemented a plan to do those at those additions and are proof points so that we make great accomplish whether there's something else to be said this is kind of the weeds are going to get too detailed on this because most of our people listening are living and Lovin but I think it's you know you listen as you go wow that's that's a big ask here property taxes are huge issue will get none of that to the notes of also that just a second Amy Krouse cheesy school superintendent in Loveland asking for more money and and shot a levy in November which is a huge one this one is a bit more temporal getting to that in just a moment but I guess part of the two of you know there's there's technology there's there's those things too that you have to adapt right Sir so twenty fourteen when that **** was made for increasing access to technology teachers are so using overhead projectors you cannot you know what really yeah absolutely so we we were we were way behind leaven it off had operated very frugally for a number of years and it it was at a support from the community to really invest as things and making sure kids had commensurate opportunities not trying to stir passerby is something that we're not but really just commensurate with me how you know report containing a so your grades clubs schools are great they are now we've yeah we've made significant improvement right right Amy to the other thing is and I'm about you know kind of broker dealer the talking to a Julia to sob yesterday he was steadfastly no on the levee issue the ask is you try to broker deals say Hey can you ask for six point nine five mil this time around I think and and they so well anything under six is doable is there room to negotiate their wives a hard was it hard fast almost seven millibars is six can you get can the two sides get someone so we did it we did include our community and trying to make a decision about what would make sense in March we put together a group of community groups and ask for some I spent two nights with them and ask for written feedback and for people gave no mileage and only one person give a millage that was even and was under with out of the range of six point nine five everyone was between six point nine five and as far up as a point nine file suggestions or recommendations to the board really feels like they did hear the recommendation as far as making a change from March eight we can't the auditor are you that board of elections certifies that right and we feel it's critical to protect that the work that we've done and and have our finances in order for next fall all right just doesn't pass then what well this is a passing export for next fall we we don't have a clear view of what our finances were be for next fall so we would have to make additional cuts right now we feel like the **** with the reductions puts in the commitment of the board to reduce expenditures put us on a trajectory to reduce their spending and still protect the investments of the community from that last levy and the programs that we put in place and this is the address of cells because that was the problem the first levy that that found was that you asked for this operating as well as track facilities in it was a it would cost eleven the billion dollar straight think as a number eleven billion per taxpayer year and it's just it was a bridge too far Sir so facilities will have to be addressed at a different date we have the board just on Tuesday nights did work to develop the Planning Commission so the people can be part of the solution as we put applications online we want to community groups to do research and find innovative ways to address facilities to help us like it off finance yes to talk about community engagements and for an arson experience and how do we do those things and affordability tax base in Loveland is tricky we have we have hard work ahead of us affordability will continue to be a problem doctor AT cross the the problem too is also that Loveland and and it's unique because it's such a beautiful coin better my community there's just bursting at the seams now I drive downtown a cross that bridge six likes later I'm able to actually get in the Loveland you know your Bon furniture is right there and it's a beautiful building we got bishops quarter there the bike shop there's there's so much night life and things to do when it's family oriented to get the bike trail all these things the big problem of course is he is the tax bases yet you have a lot of mom and pop you have a lot of residents you don't have big industry there and that's really the the the robot for you guys and right so in ninety two percent of that of property tax falls on our residential property owners in in other school districts where they have a commercial tax base that shared a so again affordability is going to continue to be a problem for level school district we're gonna have to address that together that's a tough thing I will give you credit the because I was looking at that at the website as well as look at all these numbers I don't know half of the map but it looks like there's on information the the point is it the state auditor gave you guys I think the highest rating as far as transparency goes took dance the point you know I'm not as first use inside but I the no people on yesterday in Juliet say the problem is there's no transparency in a scene in a a yet the state auditor said you guys are perfectly transparent so what what what's to be fair what's the crime so I I like and it's you know looking at in an individual pieces of data F. I see your tax returns I I may I can make a judgment if I see your monthly check stubs I can make a judgment and if I see your budget I can see I can make a judgment but truly it's the whole package together of how you tell the story in the situation that you're in so you know we we certainly try to provide as much information.

"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,.

"The city. The Hamlin county the county of Hamilton three CDC three CPO are two d to the port redevelopment authority Cincinnati USA convention visitors bureau, even your mama was there and announcing their accepting proposals to build a new six hundred room hotel at fifth and Plum that is going to serve the Duke Energy convention center because the existing hotel that serves the convention center. The millennium is ghetto af joining me on the acute hearing centers dot com hotline is council person Amy Murray. She's a chair of economic growth. This is in her purview. I think this is in your purview. Is this your purview? Definitely my purview. Love saying that word purview. That's a good word, isn't it? Purview. Great word purview is a good word. How you doing? How's everything? Just fine. No it word. I really like running amok for some writing muck. A muck to seems like that's a good word. I'm running amok with reckless abandon just frolicking. If you will a Halloween movie, I love all right, there you go. Words. So would you agree that the millennium is getaway? Now, I was in their few years ago in the lobby meetings some people and had the guy had cocktails, and I seemed okay there was ice in liquor. So I was happy. I didn't I never stayed in the millennium. But I from people I heard of stayed there before said it literally is getaway. You know, I think I know one of my favorite words ghetto af. So I think what the millennium what we're hearing from a lot of people that have stayed. There is the rooms are just not where they need to be. And so it's impacting our ability to get conventions. You know, people that are looking at conventions three four five years in the future. Come and look, and they are the hotels and see where they want to stay earned. It just doesn't stack up to what options are in other cities. It's really hurting our ability to attract bit conventions here, and that helps everyone in the city when you have the conventions come here yet the spending on you know, on restaurants on catering on the hotel. It's critical and we've really gone down since two thousand seventeen I think we had thirty seven large conventions and last year, I believe we had twelve large and part of it is this. We don't have the hotels base in one hotel. We have great hotels downtown. But as far as able to track those big conventions, it's hard if you don't have one huge hotel convention hotel. Well, let's look at the dynamics of that there's something like five billion dollars the money on the table here when it comes to conventions, and what they kick back to the local economy in the occupancy tax revenues part of that too comes from the big hotels like the millennium. And so when a thirty or your budget with the county occupancy tax that derives from that to as well. You're talking about leaving a lot of money on the table here. When when you go from thirty conventions to twelve all because the word gets out, and no one wants to stay at this getaway hotel accurately, and it impacts everyone in the industry because you think of all the service workers there that are not working or not having extra hours because we are not getting these conventions. So, you know, the city has looked at it and the port authority and the convention and visitors bureau and said we have to do something. And I know that we've been working with the millennium or the city the county different parts have been trying to the millennium to improve to do whatever we can for that hotel to get to the level where it needs to be to be the standard of a convention hotel in our city, and it's just not happening. So I think everyone has looked okay, we need to go to plan B, then because just saying here and not having a major convention hotel. Just gonna continue to hurt us in the future. What are we doing relative to Columbus and Cleveland? I'd imagine we're well behind them in this well in Columbus has some huge hotels attached to the convention center. They're just building another one thousand room hotel attached to the convention center. So you're right obvious often when we're competing against other hotels and other cities were competing against Cleveland and Columbus because if someone said, okay, we're going to go to the mid west or high. Oh. Oh, either the cities we're competing against and I think we have so much to offer as city. I mean, our downtown, you know, just Lytle and interesting, but we've got to have a place for these people to see that they want to stay right. Amy Murray on acute hearing centers dot com hotline smart, and she's the chair of economic growth for the city, and we're talking about the announcement yesterday from pretty much every big agency, and maybe even developers Cincinnati that they're going to break ground at least put up for proposal request proposals to build a new hotel at fifth and Plum, which would serve the convention center in overshadowing the millennium who doesn't seem to be doing anything and on that no two. I'm looking at a statement from the hotel. Let me read it and brief Dehere here. Amy, and I'm sure you've seen it before we have been proud good corporate citizens of the Cincinnati community for twenty years where we have provided safe in clean rooms at affordable prices. We welcome the opportunity to engage in meaningful and productive discussions on ways to our hotel can continue to be supportive of the long-term vision. And vitale. City of the city of Cincinnati. It sounds to me if I were just going from that release that they've been trying to work with you guys. You guys have not reached up to them to try and come up with a solution. Who's right who's wrong here? Yeah. It would seem that way. From b but but the issue is this has been a problem in the city for a long long time and we've been trying to solve it. And it's not, and you know, that was our one hope that millennium could help fall that. And what's interesting to me as you're the millennium is a great name and hotels and other cities have flagship properties, but that's overseen here. And we're not there's no plans for renovation. There's no plans for improvement. So the city's just got to say, you know, what you can stay then run as a hotel, but we need a world class convention hotel. And you're not stepping up to do that here. So long have you given them? I mean, how long the discussions been going on in reality with the millennium about fixing. I have been going on five years. So it has been going on for a while. And it's interesting. My sister work at the millennium maybe twenty years ago, and it was a different hotel, then but you have to be able to keep it up. And you know, when when these people are coming to look at convention the pros at this the scouts that comes to these big convention. You know, they're looking for five six years out for pros at this. And they're going to look at everything and say as my group going to be happy to come here and stay at this property or out of new property in Columbus or somewhere else. So we have to be able to provide a more number of rooms in one hotel and other great phenomenal hotels downtown, but we just need that one big anchor that will help lift everyone up bring into inventions, and they'll say it all the hotel also, well, I if it's got to be attached to the convention center as well. But in Columbus, for example, they have several hotels that are touched would that mean that if you did this project Amy Murray that that crosswalk from? The millennium would be blown up. John cranley take a sledgehammer to that thing and destroyed symbolically across the streets of Cincinnati or just simply leave it there and let the free market, then decide. Cranley will do but often we let their free market decide on things. But I think what the millennium so our with the new hotel. So they're looking they put out a request for proposal. And if Plum so the parking lot, that's right there in the port authority has taken control and acquired it last year. And so, you know, this is ideal because often in your center city, you don't have that kind of space available. So it's great that we have that space available directly south of mentioned center. So it's right there perfect location. So I'm really glad that we have all these groups are getting together saying, let's do something here. So now we need to see what proposals. We get from other hotels from developers and what we can get. But this would absolutely be a game changer. This would be a game changer for the city of Cincinnati for us being able to attract convention, I really excited and hoping that you know, we get some great proposals. We'll be able to look at them and move forward. And then two and a half three years. We're going to have a world class hotel there. And as I said people are. Booking convention years in advance. So this'll be great because it will help us start to be able to put out convention starting. Now what you're saying is in the next couple of years. We went from thirty conventions last year two years ago twelve last year this year on pace we'd probably be down to six by the time. This thing was ready to go. We'd maybe down to a handful of conventions. And these are what you consider the large conventions that are four hundred beds. We do just fine it because we have enough hotels can support that. But when we're talking about just he's big conventions, and those are the ones that really give Taliban you're downtown area. I mean, you can imagine. When you have ADT thousand people fifteen hundred people coming what it does for the restaurant, everyone in the city. So this is a issue that we've got to get solved tried to do it, you know, with hotel that is currently there, and it's just not working. So hopefully, you know, the millennium will say, hey, this other hotels gonna come in better pick it up. So that we can be competitive that would be great that would be wonderful for the entire city hotel. Options. But we can't wait. We can't wait around. We've got to move on it. You can't it's gonna move forward. Here you give them five years, and they knew and and it's interesting to me that a big hotel ear will come in Amy Murray and build something, you know, six seven eight hundred maybe thousand room hotel, adjacent to the convention center and see the opportunity to make a lot of money there in the millennium has an existing structure. Probably be a lot cheaper to remodel at them certainly cheaper to remodel and then build a new one. But, but they don't want that and businesses a funny thing, I guess they have a prime opportunity here. If I if I looked at and said, well, we're losing revenue here because people are staying at the hotel. Why would you do improvements unless you're just happy filling it up with people who aren't going to conventions and people looking for a budget hotel downtown. Yeah. I I don't know what they're looking at their owned by a company out of Singapore. So it's hard to deal with corporate headquarters because it's so far away not that close contact. But, you know, hopefully, they'll see that another hotel maybe coming and say, you know, what we're gonna do what we can do we really want to compete for that business, which would be great. It'd be wonderful to have two big options right to have that in in the city. So hopefully, soon this thing gets going here too. When there's going to be a lot of bids. I'm sure a lot of interest in as well. In. We'll see some growth as far as the revenues come from hotel motel rental nights as well as food and everything else in it all goes back. Remember, there's like thirty. But I think it's like thirty percent occupancy tax, right? It is pretty high occupancy tax early on if this hotel does get built some of it will go back to help the infrastructure around that area, and it will really transform because if you think about it right across from our convention center, we just have this surface parking lot. So that's probably not the best use of that space. So this will make very dense and really give you know the area and I'm really excited. I hope that we get some great proposals. And hopefully, it helps them Eleni and pick up what they're doing. And we'll have a great, you know, bunch of tells right around the convention. To the millennial hotel because it's ruining everything. Well, you know, you've said is a business person. I can't understand why they lost opportunity if there's no opportunity to think it's declining in Cincinnati. And there's growth because they're building other hotels. I guess at west and elsewhere, and you don't wanna be in Cincinnati. Yeah. Yeah. Then just say, hey, listen, we're out, but but don't act like you're the victim in this whole thing and the free market will say one other final point here. And I almost forgot this to when this whole thing broke Willie's. Good friend, Joe is not allowed to come on my show when Willie is not a year. No, it's it's it's an unwritten rule here at seven hundred wwl w that's Willie's Bobo or maybe he's Willie's Bobo. I'm not sure or Willie's his Bobo more likely. But nonetheless, the the word here is that Joe Diener said he was going to look into a public nuisance declaration towards the millennium hotel. What's the status of that? You know, Joe had made that announcement that he was looking into it. So I don't know if they're still looking into it. But we haven't heard anything sense nothing has happened one way or the other. So it was probably one of those things that get someone's attention. I would guess, and I don't know if they got the attention we've been trying so, you know, by having this huge competition coming in the maybe that's what's going to do it. I don't know. Usually if we're me, and I. Who am I right? But if the prosecutor the biggest county in the area goes, you know, what I'm thinking of filing a nuisance declaration against shutting down your hotel because it's a nuisance property. When the lawyers get involved in there like there's no way he can do that. It's still get my attention. If you're on the right? You don't wanna be on the on the radar of a prosecutor or the legislative buddy? Absolutely. So you know, it just doesn't make a lot of sense and ends. I said we fix this for a long time. There's been a lot of people are working to try and fix this problem. And so it just came to you know, what we're going to have to look at another solution..

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?.

"Areas of this from what you talked about from prescriptions and making sure doctors are doing the right thing to to prevention to law enforcement to actually creating a system of care and and we've just scratched the surface so getting back to the drug part do the pharmaceutical companies step up and take any responsibility at all for this well i had two piece of legislation that noone agreed with this year one was having lockable vials for opioids leave in the pharmacy and there is always the over the bad love who was going to spend the extra eighty three cents for bottles and and and that was that was difficult and then we just had national prescription take back day saturday right and six yeah in but in it was wonderful but we ought to be to take our drugs back or prescriptions back to the pharmacy of which the came from at anytime i can't we well it it there's there's stipulations in the law federal law about security i think we can overcome those but it's one of those things that the time has not come yet and you can take him back to a place of law enforcement or probably fire stations but more more likely the like for instance in hamlin county you can take back into sheriff's office but i it's just one of those things time hasn't come yet we continue to work on it's just it's just flooring me that i don't know that this has raised its ugly head again and that it's a problem and we haven't even talked about math i mean another sphere will clinch down on heroin and meth or grow but i will tell you that the nosy pharmacists bill a couple of years ago the sir head.
