"All things considered from NPR news. Atlanta's Hartsfield Jackson airport is the busiest in the world based on the number of passengers who moved through it every day a number expected to rise when you throw in a little old event like the Super Bowl. I'll Atlanta hosts the Super Bowl on February third. City officials have of course, been planning for months, but those plans did not factor in a partial government shutdown. John Selden is general manager of the airport. He joins me now from Atlanta and the Atlanta airport. Hi there mister Salton. Hi, mary. Louise, how are you? I'm doing. All right. Thank you start here. How many passengers pass through security on a typical weekday at hartsfield-jackson somewhere between sixty thousand to seventy five thousand depending on the day of the week and business travel and holidays, but we run somewhere in that range. Okay. So sixty thousand and maybe a little bit higher. How many you bracing for for the Monday after the Super Bowl? So we're looking at somewhere between one hundred and five to up to. One hundred ten fifteen thousand people going through our check point on that Monday morning. So close to double what you would have on on a typical weekday very close to double or record to date. I believe is ninety three thousand so the conversations and the planning before the shutdown was significant and the TSA was going to bring additional canine to do screening and additional officers to do screening. How confident are you that you will have enough TSA officers who you do need to do the security screening the actually show up and be on the job that day? So Mary, Louise, we are concerned we do not expect, and I shouldn't say this. But we do not expect the full staff. There are many of these federal employees that financially have limitations of childcare and paying for gas. So that situation is critical to how many can actually show up for work pay their bills, stay in their homes and take care of their families. But we are doing all we can with our stakeholders with our neighbors friends to support these employees and do what we can to provide them the tools that they need to be able to come to work. Sure. I'm wondering though, when you when you described bringing in additional TSA agents who are not normally based in Atlanta. There can't be that many spare TSA agents anywhere in the country at the moment. Right. Everybody's dealing with with shortages. Well, the the TSA is doing all they can to to get a requisite number which they think they need to get here on the TSA agents will be on there. Government credit card. They'll be putting a hotel their food will be paid for. So those agents they believe we'll we'll show up and support the operation here at Hartsfield Jackson. You described passengers showing up at the airport coming straight from the game who are gonna weep for flights out on the Monday and the Atlanta newspaper. The journal constitution is reporting that travelers will be able to pass through security up to twenty four hours before their flight in order to spread them out. The plan. Then being what that they would spend twenty four hours in the terminal. That's correct. I mean that sounds like. It may be and we have eighteen hundred volunteers that will be badged that can get through the checkpoint and help and support our travelers that will be here in the terminal for an extended period of time. So how closely are you following politics in the shutdown debate in Washington right now? Follow it, very very very closely. It's on in my office. Twenty four seven boy Johnson. We wish you much luck weathering a Super Bowl weekend. Good luck. Thank.

"At the world's busiest airport, Atlanta, Hartsfield Jackson international, and this is the way they're looking at it in a worst case scenario, they think the TSA might actually not have enough people on hand to deal with the massive influx. And then the massive outflow of people on the day after the Super Bowl, and so far there's no contingency for that. But if you look back to what happened just last Monday at this airport, a three and a half hour, wait at the security checkpoint trying to get through with several of the lanes not occupied because we'll lack of manpower. That's kind of a worst case scenario. That's the nightmare that they're talking about at the airport. When is the Super Bowl now, February what worries third and so there's a lot of stuff going on the week before is people start to flow in for the big game. But you know, the real concern now is four that's what they call mass exodus Monday. That's when everybody leaves town and goes back to wherever they came from when they came to watch the game. And that's what they're really concerned about. Now by that time, the TSA and everybody else. Government will have missed a second paycheck and the further. This goes the harder. It's going to be to keep people in the security checkpoints to do the screening because they've got financial obligation staffed him, you shut down or not the moral of this story. I think is people are feeling so pessimistic about the shutdown. They're thinking it's not going to reopen the government in time for the Super Bowl. And that's you know, what a little more than two weeks away. So yeah, I think there really is a feeling that this is just going to go on for a long time and not only TSA workers air, traffic controllers and department of homeland security people they're wondering how they're gonna muddle through CBS is Pete combs, and this story tonight when it.

"Loose Memorial Drive. The better. Still at least forty minutes out of sandy springs report hundred twenty marks. So the Macintoshes of the city are getting ready for the Super Bowl hartsfield-jackson is going to spend another ten million dollars in preparation for this. The city's got you know, the anti-terrorist plan all this stuff. But if I can get the breaking news sounder longer. This is probably the most important thing to come out of Super Bowl Sunday. As far as preparations are concerned where is this coming from TMZ sports? Shoe shows you we all know what she shows are. Yep. Gentlemen's clubs. They have been granted the permission by the city to stay open till four AM January twenty eight through February fourth including clubs that don't serve food because apparently there's a blue law if you don't serve food you have to close by certain that the elders the city elders of the city of Atlanta said, you know, it's the Super Bowl was. Yeah, we're gonna pass we're going to let that slide. So all the shoe shows all the dancing establishments will be open till four AM that Super Bowl weekend. Again, January twenty eight through four February fourth you guys weren't here in the late nineties. No. And that was literally the premier attraction to the city of Atlanta. Like people would book conventions here just to go there. Just because of the establishments where you could see the shoe shows, the gold club was, you know, I don't know if you guys ever heard of the gold club used to be on Piedmont road. There was a big scandal. Because they were they did some dastardly deeds. But it was like the best known place to see shoe shows in the United States of America. And it was ripped club wasn't on the up and up. I think part of it was of what you hear debt for trials. So apparently, that's what they called it. Yeah. That's hilarious. It was like there was like federal indictments on this show. I think the biggest thing was. So I mean, literally, it was like just think of the most premier show place in like like, I would go there. And the only reason I did because we when my uncle cigar store, east supply cigars to that establishment. So the the general manager will come and pick up the scars like, hey, come see me. I'll get you in VIP. Right. And I would go with my buddies and have literally six dollars in my pocket and being VIP's with like professional athletes, Patrick Ewing. And you know, I'm there I can't even get a dance or a drink. But I'm just saying it was quite a quite an amazing time. It was such an advantage to for our hometown teams the falcons the hawks the Braves because out of town teams would come into play. And you know, the night before. They were there till four in the morning at the gold club. Anyway, the gold club in trouble. The biggest reason why I mean, they were doing a lot of stuff allegedly. But the biggest reason so let's say guy comes in from Omaha, Nebraska, right business trip, this convention insurance convention, he goes to the show, and you have to give them your credit card. I guess in like the VIP room, or whatever, I don't know. I never did this because I didn't have any money, but they would. Rack up the charges? Like sure they charged dudes twenty five thousand dollars on their card that weren't real charges. And they go ahead and dispute it tell your boss, you know, you're you tell your wife, whatever you guys wouldn't. They would just let it slide or write it off or whatever I think that was the beginning of the downfall of the goal club. But heyday trials, and it was it was crazy. Anyway, the gold club is gone. No more. But that was that was the main driver for the convention business in Atlantic because they would have conventions toward Georgia will congress center why why pick Atlanta over Las Vegas or Miami. Only because of the motley Crue talked about the pink pony. Yeah. Exactly. So that was like the mid to late nineties was the actually tattletale tattletale tells you the apex of of the shoe show establishments in in Atlanta. And now, it's good to see the city council embracing. Former routes of the city, you know, and and giving them away for the weekend. All right. Stay open for which I think is a good idea. If you think of the meat heads. They're coming to town like my friends, which we're going to talk about a second. So here's the I've got friends come into town. And I'm assuming they're going to stay with me because Deb showed me some of the hotel rates. All it's. Oh, yes. It's insane. I'll tell you how much people are having to pay for hotels. But here's what I wanna do. So I've got four or five guys maybe six that are coming to Atlanta for the Super Bowl, and I'm not getting him in the game or anything. I hope they don't think I'm buying tickets. But they have tickets. I don't know. I have no idea, but Nassau's catechal they're going to be here for like four days. And I need to do something with them. And these are four got well a couple of moving here to Atlanta before newbies. Four people that have never been to Atlanta. I need suggestions on what to do outside of the Super Bowl and outside of the shoe shows outside of the game and outside of the clubs. What do I what our must see.

"Meanwhile, we've been telling you this week about the long lines at some of the busiest airports because TSA workers also calling in sick in Atlanta, for example, passengers at Hartsfield Jackson international airport now being advised to give themselves three hours to go through security before getting to their gate. Here's the Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer of New York now is that Trump shutdown drags on more and more Americans are getting hurt. Public. Servants have been working without pay critical agencies are unable to perform their functions. Inspecting the food supply protecting our airports in prisons, preparing tax refunds, helping farmers small businesses. Get loans. Earlier today. Senators van Holland car-, carton Warner and sorry. Ben Holland carton. Warren Cain wrote the president urging him to meet with average federal workers who are being hurt by the Trump shutdown. President says he talks to federal workers. We never see him talking to anybody with the exception of the two people always appear on Fox News because their heads of the border patrol union. No one else. So I agree with my colleagues from Virginia and Maryland, let the presidency. The pain the Trump shutdown is causing he'd benefit from listening to their stories of federal civil servants were working without pay locked out of their jobs. Maybe then President Trump will understand the damage he's causing by holding these people hostage until he gets what he wants. Meanwhile, leader McConnell, Senate Republicans are hiding in the shadows. As if they have some kind of version two doing their job when it involves even the slightest break with the president. Leader McConnell and Senate Republicans seem more concerned with not offending Donald Trump. Then helping American families. I have three words for President Trump leader McConnell, and our Republican senators open, the government open the government, you can do it in a minute. Then we can debate border security, that's the responsible position. And it's the position the American people want the overwhelming majority of Americans support our position. And here's the amazing thing. Thirty nine percent of Republicans in the Quinnipiac poll supported the democratic position. Don't shut down the government to get the wall. Those comments by the democratic leader in the US Senate Chuck Schumer of New York USA today has been looking at the economic impact of the shutdown among its findings of the eight hundred thousand federal employees affected by the shutdown three hundred and eighty thousand have been placed on unpaid leave closed federal attractions, particularly the National Park Service means lost revenue as of last week, according to the national parks conservation association, six million dollars in fees have gone uncollected. And while the amount is not clear. The federal government is likely though interest penalties on late payments to contractors and two states. If payments are not distributed in a timely manner..
