Moh NEWS A settlement brings a final end to the legal fighting over the city of Seattle's reversal on the so called head tax of $35,000 settlement resolves an activist lawsuit claiming the City council broke the state's open meetings laws. Repealing the so called head tax on big business is two years ago. The city admits no wrongdoing out of the settlement, which officials say cause several times less than continuing litigation. In exchange, the Seattle Times reports Arthur West has agreed to drop his case and release the city and council members from further claims. The settlement comes weeks after West one key ruling a state appeals court where his lawsuit was revived or being dismissed by a lower court. Hello. Neil Camo News. A new idea proposed to battle the homeless crisis in Seattle.

Of contracting partners like Reach chief Seattle Club, the Urban League and more this team will be exclusively civilian.

Seattle police officers who decided to leave the force because of the current cutbacks in their department have had some scathing things to say in their exit interviews, blunt and brutal, in their own words, Seattle police officers did not hold back their reasons for leaving the force. One retiring patrol sergeant would been with SPG for more than 20 years, saying I refused to work for the Socialist City Council and their political agenda. When asked what factors had a negative effect on morale in the department, one officer of says The council wanting to defund us and gaining ground doing that writers not being charged, even when they assault officers. That's ridiculous. Jim Puta is the Crimestoppers, director of law enforcement, which works with SPD is an absolute joke and a travesty.

Michelle Esteban has the update. It has been a voting frenzy, especially here in King County, where an estimated 90,000 people over the weekend voted early, and they used one of the county's 73 ballot drop boxes to cast their ballot. Now, more than ever, we all need to make her voice. It's hard for a voter Avalon bury her excitement hard to contain. I just think it's important that everyone votes early, so there's not like a backlog. On November 3rd and everything gets counted. I would say this is truly unprecedented. Ki county elections. Chief of staff Candle Hudson says county ballots started coming in late last week in years past, they'd wait till Monday to start collecting.

"They're drafting teenagers have Canadian Juniors and European legs and I had no clue who Ericsson Act was I only knew besser because I had done a story on them at a Caribou in Burnsville that we know the week before But to me, you know years later you look at it and and and you say our next turning into one of the top defensive centers in the NHL. That's good. But you know to me the point of of yesterday's story was just to point out that the goal gestures the one that's winning the battle right now and and so you know, and again, the point of my article was not to sit their. Old regime but it was just pointing out the analogy of of here we go. Besser scores the winning goal he scores a huge goal in game two at the same exact entity that Ericsson AC. I. Wasn't able to score and. All that I think is fair because we're back to the age old issue of getting the Puck in the net to this point and I will say this I feel bad because Eric's access just because Branca's from here like he's Never GonNa live this down and there's no way he can win that battle Brock Besser is you know he's flashy scores, huge goals and Ericsson everything he does a subtle and and if you look at the defensive stats, he was one of. The top defensive centers in the NHL this year. So he he does his job he's not expected to be the guy that's supposed to score like besser. But you know the reality is at best is always going to win that battle in the in the end of the day in the eyes of wild fans just because he's goal scorer in from here well, and and I don't think we we as much as I like to kid about our obsession with home grown talent. You can't you know diminish the other part of this is because the scoring issue is a theme that has been endless here, and so they're always gonna be people more sensitive to it. You show that you have enough of your own sharpshooters and scores emailer Tony asked Rousseau about walls is comment. He'd rather have eck over Besser talk about homer soda come on what is what do you say to that? Yeah I mean again, you know West West really appreciates the job that you'll eric's enact does and I think that West looks at you know sometimes a lot of goal scores like like brock is as if they're not scoring, what are they doing and I think that was the point that he was making it it just not in the case that at the timing that he I think he made the comment didn't help the best record right after their but but again, I mean, look your snack is a good player going to be a player in this league a long long time you know he's just not a score and he proved it again last night i. Did take out a line of my story that I will say on the radio that would would have been really mean but. You'll Eric's naked shown in the NHL that he can't score with his. Stick the proper way. So you know shooting pool cue is now can probably help situation but. I feel good though that you feel will your emboldened to give the more vicious comment on this show I feel like that that actually that makes me. Inside There was a real. It was a real cheap fabric. Really like Eriksson snack as a player and and it was just the timing of the incident, but you know what? You'll will act missing that goal at the beginning of the third periods is you know it's just like all those missed opportunity at the end of the second by the guys that are actually aid to score. So I mean, it was just one situation. So that became the focal point of my story and just again the fact that brock. Scored the winning goal and his at has become such a really good NHL player. You know brock besser stays healthy escort ton goals in the in the league. Last item to this point has the goaltending been good enough for the wild to actually be ahead in this series or has it been inconsistent? H-, how would you describe stay locked through all three games? I. Stay. Lights been fine. I know love to stop that breakaway on the second goal last night. But every other goal is, was you look on your? They were they were Bang Bang plays what about what about game to? Gain, too I mean the first goal stunk but but let look I mean that was a bizarre play. It looked like the Puck, the netting and wound up actually hitting Stanton pucks skips on the ice hops over suitor stick and then it's a nuclear at a perfect shot by tanner. Pearson. But every other goal in that game I thought was fine. This is to me not a goaltending issue and look the wild we're. Never GonNa win the goaltending battle in this series, and that was that to me is the biggest disappointment because Jacob Barker I think was highly beatable and games one and two but we saw early in game three hundred he was on his game and he didn't have to be great yesterday by any stretch but the way he controlled his rebounds and everything he he just looked looked awesome. So to me, this is not an. Issue and so. I. I can't tell you that. I'm privy to know WHO's starting in goal tonight if if they're not going to go with stay lock tonight, my gut says it would be. And the reason why is because they You know I don't think they had morning skate today they definitely didn't have a morning skate say because it was an after game afternoon game they took Wednesday completely off Tuesday was just a morning scrape skates or their last full practice for doom nick would have been last Monday where there is an extra practice that Canon has been in a believe every day. So tacking into me is the only other option today because he's the one that's been practicing I think it'd be pretty unfair for them to throw dude nick in here not having full practice since Monday betcha stay like bet you're right about that Step say like made some unbelievable saves yesterday keep them in that game save on Pearson the save on Horvat and this this series is all about the fact that there again, their inability not to score it's it's that way in every postseason by the Minnesota wild. All right. My My desire is to have you join US Sunday either to preview a winner take all game five or to review a short playoff run and to get on with the lottery and all that because the lotteries Monday right the lottery is going to be Monday Yup. Yeah it's the wild lose tonight. They will have a one out of a chance to get the number one overall pick Monday at five. PM NBC Sports Network. All right. We'll. We'll.

"Welcome back text message a please ask draft about your shoes I just saw this too late on sorry yeah we have those we are technical issues that should be our eyes filled will get a fix for next week now we've talked about the shoes a lot in fact today during the the whole ordeal filling in and in doing some work with Bo Matthews and Trish is al yes actually recorded that on Thursday in Trish brought up my shoes in called me out on it because she follows me on Twitter and apparently wanted to do some research some opposition research in doubt check out check out the Jews and yes we made fun of me for not wanting to get shoes and I got the fat feet in their flat and their hairy and the I got all these issues with my feet so now finally I got some different shoes for so I thank you for following up on the shoe saga indeed thank you for that how are we gonna do here you know the post dispatch put an article out I gotta get Brad young in on this because I don't know what legally speaking can be done about this but man one thing that is at least encourage gene in the city of Saint Louis is that corruption is not in style there's a lot of issues when it came to corruption and you know they're still issues in Saint Louis now the question is to what level if there is any when it comes to corruption or is it just I just terrible politics or is it just terrible all given into social cues or is it plain to what the donors want you to do whatever it may be or trying to just use defensive in nature of things in order to gain popularity but as we now over in the county you had Steve stinger in jail now based on the issues surrounding him and rightfully so now there's even more dirty ness that starting to come out and Jacob Barker over the post dispatch posted this up in this is excellent work this is like award winning work so let me read some of this for you and here's the headline sing field donated as seven hundred thousand dollars to staying here much of it through a fire district non profit now keep in mind that's a big no no when it comes to campaign contributions are the money the can't candidates or in this case political office holders you got to be transparent in the way that this is put out so if you're gonna donate money to someone if you're gonna funnel it through a bunch of other agencies and then eventually trickles down to them as a way to try to get around the disclosure or the paperwork of it all because you don't want people to know where the money's coming from that is a huge huge huge violation and it's something that's been going down for a little while it is something new this is been done under the sun but to this extent county it in as seven hundred thousand dollars now we're finding out about it and Steve state you're still in jail he should still be in jail you know what I would love to talk to Brad young about this on the net to try to get him on the show tomorrow night I want to know if we can just stockpile a little more on top of this and keep them in jail even longer let's just add some more charges on to this because if the more we find out about it so here's we're at right now in all all read this it is a very confusing story it's it's something that I'm gonna have to get broken down in other ways so in October two thousand eighteen a campaign committee that was helping then county executive Steve staying or finances political efforts reported at two hundred and fifty thousand dollar donation from a nonprofit that supports fire districts okay it it's didn't really come from the fire district nonprofit came from great Saint Louis a nonprofit was president is an operative for the St Louis based philanthropist in political donor Rick singer field now he's the name that you may remember from better together trying to merge the city in the county the big financier behind that why would he want to secretly funneled money to the person if this were better together would work out to the person that would be the new metro made here that's interesting I think you can come to your own conclusions but I'd like to hear the answer to that my conclusions and of course me just wondering as I'm playing through this my mind why would he want something like that well number one that the big question is was he using it to pay off Steve staying in order to call and get behind this sort of thing number two was he going to be the rich financier behind it soul let's say he's the one that wanted this better together is he the one that wants to pull the strings by de facto be he would he be like that the mayor of that all would he be the one calling the shots as he be the one paying off you know there's all kinds of the questions here not as an elected official but as in I can just throw the money around so I can do what I want to have a guy there's a lot of questions is that what was going down here I would definitely want answers now the there's no getting around it this needs to be investigated so the interesting thing is during the whole depositions and such you found documents which the stinger even admits we give me a lot of money like seven hundred thousand so the post dispatch to the investigative work and they were able to put together all the pieces of this puzzle and by golly it adds up to seven hundred thousand dollars it's a very detailed article which I think you're gonna have to go see for yourself the other post dispatch posted it but you know came like some sure is gonna be digging deeper into this this this as Kevin clean written all over it I don't say so myself so says the true source of the donation revealed in November two thousand nineteen state disclosure filed by the political action committee sheds more light on all sing feels operation was able to final about seven hundred grand to stingers political efforts it raises questions about the disclosure why was maybe your look later now organizations try to conceal that why is that you know we know that he pled guilty that pay to play scheme was this part of it how does that play into it this is not look good in think about this I wonder if they been dragging their feet on the city and county merger with the board of freeholders is the reason why that's happening right now because they found this information out we've been trying to figure out how to deal with this considering that this is going to get out there and it's going to be known that the people are not going to trust us in this process so how that money made its way to stinger still a mystery until recent disclosures one up there so these donations came in two thousand eighteen first a stinger fought for political survival in the August primary operatives for with sing field lined up support for the better together city county merger is this a you know all the way that he saw this as a last ditch effort to stay in power a stinger had been a Luke warm on the idea about the county executive two thousand fourteen support was crucial thing feel funded effort pave the way for the plans in January of two thousand nineteen in the better together efforts stinger would become the first mayor in the combined government da da da da Daddy draft okay so then it goes on initial some of the other ties to a people that were involved with this I gotta tell you this is such a complicated deal a complicated deal this is what I can make of it he put money into a bunch of different organizations and eventually funneled its way back to Steve stinger and he's the one o'clock to this money in order to try to make it so the disclosure wasn't there he didn't want the people to know that all this money was going there is a probably indicated the motivations or at least the you know if you want to use the term quid pro quo I guess you could what would be expected in return there's even through the lanes of the sea of the days leading to the victory they give money the carpenters union honored in seventeen thousand dollars would show me victories on mail bags in the sport is staying here they also gave last minute checks the stinger and then they mention too that in order to try to pay this back by October the funds moved the thirty seven thousand dollars to a new committee looking at this one in increments of five thousand dollars or less so they didn't have to trigger large donation alerts on ethic regulators totally on ethical so I got I you know this is not a good look and corruption being out in Saint Louis that's a good thing people are tired of this they're fed up with this sort of thing they're distrustful this is the right way to be skeptical when it comes to government so you know what flush all this out if you're someone as honest in your someone is trying to do things the right way and this is just another free bit of advice for mayor light a gruesome because she seems to at least run things on the up and up and all disagree with their on these political issues but you don't get this impression that she's corrupt all right you don't get that with her I'm going to just throw out this free advice to her right now do what you can you got to take a strong stance on this sort of thing and say were flushing out all corruption we're getting this junk out here because there's no way we'll get anything done in this region as long as this garbage is happening so get out of here you got it got to be more forceful I want to see that Bryce the line a lot of these things I want to see your more forceful with the circuit attorney's office they say this is garbage we got to stop this okay we got it if we're gonna move far we're gonna fix this sort of thing you gotta take harder stances on these issues are right especially if you're not on the take all rights as the show that you're not part of this is distancing yourself from this garbage are I think it's very important for three six seventy nine hundred that's the number overnight

"Baseball this afternoon. Three. Oh, five start at Washington. I'm Tom Ackerman. Kmox news time is nine. Oh five. Hey, let's go on in Washington DC or maybe going on because attorney general bar has decided not to show up at the House Judiciary meeting, and we'll talk to major Garrett are CBS Washington. Correspondent about that in about. Oh, fifteen or so minutes, maybe a little less than that. Also this morning, Dan Farrell. Our main man at Busch stadium talking about the upcoming deals for karnal fans. We have a fantastic wine line. That's ready for your perusal at about ten of five this morning the Stanley Cup. Yes. The Stanley Cup is going to visit the studio today, and we're going to also I don't know talking about the legend behind this thing it there is one that's the NHL hall of fame only for display purposes, but this is the Stanley Cup. And it's got a lot of fascinating stories to Charlotte. Jones is the treasurer for the city Saint Louis and she announced this. That she's going to increase all pay where rather the minimum wage at the treasurer's office will be fifteen dollars an hour. Fifteen dollars an hour to work in the treasurer's office. That's the starting pay now. And she will explain her thoughts later this morning on K M O X. The Saint Louis post dispatch today is responding to critics maybe this program because it was earlier this week when we had all star panel Burgess Jones. And Ernie trae Kaz. Tom Sullivan, Brad young. We're all talking about the stinger indictment and resignation. How the post-dispatch actually endorse Steve stinger last fall? After Jacob Barker of their staff had two years of reporting in the Saint Louis post dispatch all the problems with the stinger office. And it was well chronicled in this paper the gray lady here in Saint Louis the paper's editorial staff endorse stinger, and then as now people are still scratching their heads. So the paper came out and this morning, they said they had to do it. They said because for example, many people have said, we'll just don't doors anybody if they're if they're all fools or creeps don't endorse him. Well, the Saint Louis post spach pick stinger there on record for doing that. And and even there's a letter to the today. Greg power says when given a poor choice don't doors anyone. Absolutely. Well, the post-dispatch said withholding an endorsement altogether was never an option because readers were demanding some direction. You think so? Oh, poor me. I go to work every day as an accountant, a lawyer, a doctor, I am a teacher. I'm a high school principal. I am a professor I am working in radio RAI own my own small business. Please post-dispatch Etro page to tell me who to vote for. I really can't figure this one out. I read your stories. I read about how this guy is giving out contracts and grants only to the donors, please help me figured this will on out. Boy, I'll tell you what. That there is an inflated sense of self importance at the post dispatch editorial page, withholding an endorsement altogether was never an option because readers were demanding some direction. Let me ask you this. Is there any evidence whatsoever that the readers of this paper were asking for an endorsement? Is there any evidence that the readers in the city of Saint Louis, for example, followed the endorsement of the post dispatch when it endorsed Antonio French for mayor he came in fourth place, right? It is hilarious. Who do they think they are really anyway? And this is the page which is a and separate from the reporters for the paper. Okay. But so who should be blamed for Steve Sanger getting into office, the editorial page this morning blames the unions. It says union leaders who campaigned hard and massively. Who can paint who campaigned hard and massively contributed to Steve standards campaign coffers are the ones who most oh county residents an explanation. Let me repeat that because I didn't read it too. Well, the first time I acknowledge Steve stinger eek deniro win union leaders who campaigned hard and massively contributed distinguished campaign. Coffers are the ones who county residents and explanation not us we endorse them. We don't own explanation. These these union leaders, they're the ones, and you know, what maybe so. But when you make when you do something foolish like endorse Steve stinger as this paper did. And then it's your column. Trying to explain that the only appropriate thing to do to say is I blew it. We really dropped the ball on this one Saint Louis, please forgive us. Instead they. Try and focus the attention on somebody else. Poor form poor form. Not stand up whatsoever. Now, Chucky be in the two thousand sixteen election said the Donald Trump could not win. There's no way that he would run the board and win those five key states. And guess what? I was wrong. First thing. The next day. I was wrong and ever since whenever comes to political predictions. I always preface it by saying, hey, listen to me. I'm the guy who said Donald Trump could not win in two thousand sixteen egg on my face, bad prediction, it'll live with me for as long as people care to listen, whatever that's all there is to it. And when there's something like this when Steve stinger runs for office, and your paper has chronicled all of his illegal activities for two years, and you still endorse them the only thing for you to say is I am very sorry. We frigging blew it. That's all there is to it. Now as for staying. Under. Jacob barker. Today's paper kind of outlines again what we've been talking about. I will say we've kind of had this. Thanks in part to the reporting of the posts batch. The cardinal creative was at the center of all this cardinal, creative was a John Rallo corporation Rallo is an insurance guy when he couldn't get the insurance contracts. They gave him some money staggered did in exchange for his political support. They gave him some money one hundred thousand dollars just to thank you very much for your support. Steve stinger said now, I wanna get you a hundred thousand dollars through Sheila Sweeney and the Saint Louis economic development partnership. And this was to extensive -ly market the county right after Ferguson because we had a black guy in the neck in our national image after Ferguson. So let's market the county. So they give them the money through the Saint Louis port authority to do that. Instead, it just goes into Rallo pocket always gave twelve thousand five hundred dollars to circus webby, then he gave thirty or twenty five thousand dollars or so to John cross a political operative associated with congressman clay. They did no work for the county. But they got the money. I think we'll see those indictments coming up soon. That's my prediction. All right. They're more heads that are gonna roll. Because this is not me saying this is outlined in the forty four page indictment. So Steve Sanger's decides after meeting at Sam steakhouse with circus webby, and John Rowan that Rallo has to be paid off. Now, here's the deal, and I'm starting to feel sorry for stinger because he could go away for sixty years. I think he'll probably get ten to twenty something. Like that. Right. He'll cut a deal. He'll go to away for ten to twenty. He's got two kids there two and three years old. And here's what he's going to miss. He's going to miss the first time they hit a T-ball. He's going to miss their first day go into kindergarten. He's going to miss if they're Cal. I think he's Catholic. They're going to miss it. First communion. He's gonna miss there. He's not going to be there to help them with their homework. He's not gonna be there. They're not going to sit in his lap. And he's not gonna read them at night. He's not going to have those fun little trips to Ted Druce or six flags to the beach. He's not going to be with them on Christmas morning when they open up their gifts. He's not going to be with them on their birthdays. When they blow blows out the candles, and I I wonder was it worth it to get the money to John Rallo. You gave John Rao one hundred thirty thousand dollars. So he could pay off some guys who did no work for the county. Felony charges. Was it worth it? You're not gonna see those girls again for ten years. Oh, they might visit you in prison on their birthday. That's possible. It's possible. But what are you gonna do? Put your hand up to the piece of glass, and they'll put the hand up to was it worth it. So John Rallo can make some money. So you could become county executive see Steve stagger. Had a pretty good year. Remember that went tax income is income was released when you remain like seven hundred fifty thousand dollars. He's living in a million dollar home. He's got some money. He was making some good money as an attorney. And so he decided to give all that up because he needs the power being account executive. So he can cut ribbons with better together. Why why not just as an attorney keep your nose clean make some money and have a nice family life. What the heck heck was going through his mind. Oh, well, I wanted to get John crossed the money wanted to give circus Welby twelve thousand five hundred well, I hope they're happy because you're not going to see your kids. That's really sad Chucky be Thursday morning on the voice of Saint Louis around the corner. We've got major Garrett with us. Major Garrett CBS Washington correspondent chief Washington.

I guess this was it was kind of a surprise yesterday. But not really a surprise. I guess Steve singer had been under investigation for well. Over a year at least, but the indictment came down quite suddenly at least the news breaking to us yesterday morning. A grand jury indictment of county executive Steve stinger states that he orchestrated a series of sweetheart deals for businessman, John Rallo, while sending so-called bag boys to collect donations to three different campaign committees if found guilty he could be facing up to sixty years in prison overall, Charlie what were your thoughts on yesterday's news as vents unfolded. Well, the first thing was, you know, you had no bail and he's the one guy who could afford cash bail. And he's he's out on his own recognizance have talked Brad young about that. He's going to join us next hour. But yeah, it's been so clear, you know, the the indictments really have not been much different from what Jacob Barker has been reporting over the last. Eighteen months two years something like that in the post-dispatch, Jeremy colour as well. And you know, that I thought that they'd be looking at the Gleaner brothers. That's not in it. It's really this creative consulting with someone by the name of s w now identified by the posts batches circus webby, the former Saint Louis alderman who also went to jail for about five years, and he got Steve Stenger together with this John Rallo who wasn't insurance guy had no expertise whatsoever in marketing, but then he got one hundred thousand dollar contract to market the county, even though he had no experience there. And then it went up to one thirty and apparently the extra money went to some guy named J C identified as John cross while to learn more about him. So I don't think this is the end of it because there are other people who also did some illegal things like taking money and making bribes were you surprised any thoughts there market? Were you surprised that Sanger resign so quickly? I don't think I was, you know, look, I think the writing was on the wall. And there was preparation for that. I'm actually surprised maybe it didn't happen before the indictment that they were waiting for this. I think Charlie's right. I think there's more to come the federal prosecutor yesterday indicated that I think one of the more interesting aspects of this is who wore the wire or was it a recording device in the room. Because clearly if you read the indictment, and you see the conversations it's more than just text messages. So somebody, and I think that people have a theory on this. But I won't implicate anyone right now was certainly recording these conversations, but I do think that you're gonna have maybe more people that could be on the hook here. But here's the other thing. I think in Charlie I'd love your perspective on that. I'm not letting Sanger off the hook. I'm not saying any this who is legal. But what I am saying is I think people look at this from the outside, and they say, wait, a second people write big checks to politicians all the time. What do you think they want in return? Of course, they want something in return in politicians always say, well, we don't do that. Of course, this is all on the up and up is stagger. A situation where a lot of people do the same stuff. Stuff. But he's the guy who got caught I think I think a lot of people wonder about that too. But what they have here is the quid pro quo. Now, you mentioned the wire, you don't really need a wire iphone, let's say Sheila or somebody just recorded something, right? Just press play on their iphone. Yeah. Yeah. Right. Yeah. The movies have the wires. But it's really just simple. Or you could just even leave a dial a number on a phone, and then just leave it open and you're recording on your own answering machine while someone's talking. I mean, Debbie could be recording us right now effort, though, I mean, they're they're accidental. Well, it could have been recording device from the feds. You don't think about this? Don't forget in June of eighteen Sheila Sweeney was saying that someone was found her and she goes back to county government. And she says to Tom Malchow who was insecurity. I believe there and Bill Miller and Jeff Wagoner, I'm freaked out someone's following me, and they look into it. And according to believe, it was Sam page and Ernie traces in a county council meeting about a month later, they say, it was the feds. So the feds were onto her it appears in June of eighteen and so if they were they then start talking to her she gets information. And then by the time they start talking in late last year about the lobbying contract with John. Well, I guess capital or a company one is now been identified by the post-dispatch is John Barr. Jay, who's a lobbyist, and you know, Steve stinger saying to Sheila Sweeney, come on. You got to give them this contract. Give him the contract. Well. She's already cooperate feds. She's recording everything he's saying by that time, you know, he's late to the game. How did he not know if during a county council meeting in July of eighteen the members are saying the feds are following Sheila? Why is he still pressuring her to give contracts to his donors? I I guess he was very confident. Although as soon as he hired Scott rosenbloom didn't everyone in the newsroom, go, right? I'm thin happening now. But to Mark's point I think most people assume if you're gonna start giving big money to a politician, you expect something in return, which I guess is why I've always been confused as to why giving millions of dollars to politicians equals free speech because don't we all know that they want they want something in return. But you gotta prove the quoque the quid pro quo. As Brad says Brad young now, there are other cases like John Gaskin at the end of beliefs EP he gets money from Rexine field. And then he starts working with the N double ACP. Ep to endorse better together. But he's not an elected official and the state statute says that as an elected official you cannot receive anything of value nothing value in exchange for official action. All right. We have to take a break here. But when we come back, we're going to just talk about this situation for one more one more quick one. But this was my favorite cut of the morning because I don't think the turmoil on the county council is over yet because they nominated Sam page to be the interim. And anyway, here's your cut of the day. Chairman CEO page. It's eight forty one K every morning..

From the US attorney's office for county government. Yeah. County governments under a federal investigation. And we've been saying for quite some time. You know, look, it's just the donors have been getting these contracts, and I guess. Federal authorities have been reading the same articles. Let's go to Brian. Hi, brian. You're up to bat. Thanks for joining us this morning on chemo ex. Hey, brian. How you doing just fine? Thank you. I'm a retired air force. Colonel twenty seven years in the service, and I can tell you for virtually all of my career. What what vice president Biden has done in a CNN TV numerous times on YouTube is considered sexual harassment in the military. You just don't touch people period. Is that clear as a commander if I were to do anything close to what he's done? I would not be a commander very long in my career would be severe seriously back. So that's just my two sets. Yeah. Thanks a lot for the call. I think it's fair to say though, that military and civilian rules are different. Now, maybe the civilian rules should be similar to the military rules. I actually liked what speaker Pelosi had to say. She said what you have to do is pretend you have a cold. And so when you shake hands keep long arm distance stay away from people don't invade their space as if you were experienced a cold that actually is pretty good advice. I think hey, David you're on Campbell ex. It actually pretty good advice. I say all right. Dave's listening to his radio and not his phone. And that happens. Don't forget everybody when you call four three six seven nine hundred make sure you listen to your phone. Okay. I want to get to another topic. That's out of right out of this morning's paper. And here we go. New York Times this morning, Adam grant saying. Don't ask kids what they want to be. When they grow up the question forces children to define themselves in terms of work. And grant writes a column I I don't know if it's on psychology or raising kids or whatever, but I've seen his byline before and generally applauded, but now he says his first beef with the question. Hey, what do you want to be? When you grow up is that it forces kids to define themselves in terms of work. Actually, I disagree with that. It is not asking to define themselves. You just ask him. What would you like to be? When you grow up. When you're asked what you wanna be. When you grow up, it's not socially acceptable to say, a father, a mother or a person of integrity. That's what he writes. I disagree. If a kid said that I'd say, that's fantastic. Hi, what do you want to be? When I grow up when you grew up a father. Hey, good for you. I don't think it's socially unacceptable. He says this might be one of the reasons that many parents say their most important value for their children is to care about others. Get their kids believe the top value is success. Well, you got to pay the bills. The second problem is the implication that there is one calling out there for everyone. Although having a calling can be can be a source of joy research shows that searching for one leave students feeling lost and confused. Yeah. It's true. Life is difficult. You know, pursuing a career getting a job being a success. But he says don't don't let this on the kids. Don't ask them. What do you want to be? When you grow up. He also says if you managed to overcome obstacles, there's a third hurdle careers rarely live up to your childhood dreams. In one study looking for the ideal job left, college seniors feeling more anxious. Stressed overwhelmed and depressed through the process and less satisfied with the outcome. Well, that's possibly true. Today's college kids are anxious stressed overwhelmed and depressed. But would they rather have lived through the depression or World War Two or any other part of American history for that matter? Finally, he says, and again, this is this article he says don't ask kids what they want to be when they grow up from this morning's New York Times, by the way, he's a psychologist at the at Warton. That's the business school at the university of Pennsylvania. He's the author of originals. He says asking kids what they wanna be leads them to claim a career identity. They might never want to earn. Instead invite them to think about what kind of person they want to be in about all the different things. They might want to do. You know? I think that life is so good that we're making a problems. Now. According to the New York Times is columnist Adam grant, the problem is that we're asking kids. What do you want to be? We thought that was a benign question Ono, you're causing anxiety. And you're suggesting there's only one thing for the kid. Well, no wonder society is so messed up because the last time you saw your nephew. You said. Hey, what do you want to be? Cowboy astronaut ballplayer that was a very harmful question. And I hope we all feel hope we've learned a lesson today from the New York Times, very instructive. Okay. I'm gonna take a break here. And then come back with your phone calls and don't ask me what I want to be. When I grow up. Hey biggies is closed today because we're saluting a great restaurant tour all day long. Mark Price the owner biggies passed away last Friday after our nine year brave battle with cancer. And boy the the wake yesterday acutest on gravity was just jammed and I got there about three o'clock in the afternoon. And they knew that there would be many fans and friends and family members. But I think they were little. Overwhelmed with the number of people who showed up is very difficult to find a parking spot and the big parking lot. And this is just the three o'clock. This was before people got out of work, and I will say true form. The biggies team the waitresses and others all dressed up and they were kind of tailgating in the cutest parking lot. And I said tailgating at awake. And they said this is how we do it biggie style, you know, a biggies this kind of a family. It's I've often said it's kind of like the cheers bar of Saint Louis where you walk in. And everybody knows your name. Well, I'll tell you what today they're laying duress Mark Price who since nineteen ninety two has been on Watson with his brother Brian's. Dad, Wally and our thoughts and prayers are with the entire price family at this time. They're closed today. They'll be open again tomorrow tomorrow. They'll have the Swiss chicken soup along with the best fried chicken in town. And then on Friday the Lenten specials from Jack salmon, stuffed flounder New England clam chowder tuna on croissant. And as well as the pasta broccoli and the two Tamari in many other less specials. So again, our thoughts and prayers with the price family, Mark Price. We hardly knew ya. Ablett's fans.

"All right. Thanks for joining us everybody. We're talking major Garrett. I think today unless he's on a plane heading to Atlanta because he is going to be broadcasting or podcasting something casting from the Super Bowl saw. He tweeted a photo of himself. He's flying coach CBS Washington correspondent flying coach. He should be flying first class, but we'll get into maybe it's not as own dime. Okay. We'll find out speaking of your own dime. I saw this Anheuser-Busch now AB inbev wants to expand. They say seventy five million dollars in the su- lar- brewery. So it can make new products and retain jobs this by Jacob Barker who covers these matters for the post-dispatch the they're saying they'd like to put in seventy five million dollars. But they also want a break on their taxes personal property tax. They want to sixty five thousand dollar property tax break. So just I'm just. Saying again, it's it's great to have them here. No doubt. And I love that tour and psychotic. And we're a beer town. All that and more. I would just say if we're talking about this the last half hour cities and towns, do you bend over to give all of these tax breaks right now, the corporate tax break has been pretty substantial thanks to the Trump administration and Republicans in congress, you're going from what a high of thirty nine point six to about twenty percent corporate tax. And now you're going to quibble over sixty five thousand dollars when you're AB inbev. Probably you probably spill more beer on the floor, then sixty five thousand dollars. But that's how these things work. And then we wonder gee, how can we don't have money to pick up trash? I'm just saying I want to go all socialist on you. I just don't like the crony capitalism. If you wanna forget every forgive everybody's personal property tax. Like Chucky doesn't have to pay personal property tax on his car from Johnny land off. That's fine. Everybody can get that break. But just because you're big you get it in the little guy does not we've talked about this before Andy, Cranston. Does he get a single tax break? I don't think. So he doesn't get one. He runs crown candy kitchen, not one. He's iconic. He's legendary he's got a good business. Four three six seven nine hundred eight hundred nine to five eleven twenty mail was not delivered yesterday. What happened to that credo despite what what is the post office credo? Neither wins the dark of night. Freezing coal. We will deliver the mail while they didn't yesterday. Now it was very cold yesterday. So schools were called off. But now they're called off again today. I'm looking outside. Why? Did you not have a chance to find those gloves? Our daughter's school has been cancelled two days in a row, but they went to a retreat in Belleville. So actually drove further yesterday. I I'm not figuring it out. And now we also have this discussion last hour that people can't get to the voting booth on election day. Now, aren't they open from six to seven or six to eight? They're open pretty early, and then they close pretty late and people can vote absentee who's the person who can't get to the to the voting booth. Now, my friends who are disabled don't want to be told they can't get there because they can. And they will maybe it's the person who's working two shifts. All right. Can you vote absentee seems like a lot of people do an increasing number every year. Are there other locations? You can't get to on Tuesdays between six and eight can't get to the grocery store can't get to the gas station where else I I'm just not convinced yet. I think that apathy is the real reason people are not voting. I I don't think it's a lack of access. Generally, speaking, four three six seven nine hundred eight hundred nine to eleven twenty in our little monologue today. We now go to Oklahoma City were they now have a seven sleek streetcars on a four point eight mile loop. They opened them up last month. And this is from the Tuesday Wall Street Journal now they didn't go see we've got our new little street cars to our trolley cars are ours. The old fan old-fashioned vintage ones. They went sleek, very modern. They look like bullet trains, but apparently they're not that fast because Levi pack thirty five who conducts as best as monitoring for an environmental company rode the streetcar three times on a recent day getting to and from the job site and his lunch hour. He wasn't impressed with the pace. He says I'm not sure if I'm a fan yet. Maybe they go a little bit slow. But in the first month people have taken more than one hundred. Thousand rides. Some are using the streetcar to get to mid day meetings or as part of a daily commute. Still others are writing it for the novelty the city will begin to charge a dollar per ride February second Saturday, by the way, they did this without a penny of federal funds. This streetcar in Oakland. How come they did this with federal funds, and we we use federal funds? I dunno since nineteen Ninety-three. The city is invested one point seven billion dollars in so-called metropolitan area projects it kept investing after the nineteen ninety-five. Bombing of the Alfred P Murrah federal building which killed one hundred sixty eight people projects have included a downtown arena convention center, new schools, a library senior wellness centers by trails. A whitewater park canals with river taxis and. This one hundred thirty five million dollar project a streetcar system it was funded from a voter approved temporary increase in the city's sales tax. What else is new? So it one hundred thirty five million dollars. What was our ours was only fifty two million dollars? I believe so they really went hog wild on that one to the phones we go John good morning. You are on camera. Rex. Hi, john. Yeah. They got a I've got a neighbor complained about everything and he ever vote. It's not that he can't he's the boss of the place. Our polling place where we go to vote at a block and a half from his what role that far it's from. It's from his home block and a half from his home. You got any can't find the time to vote on Tuesday. He can't ever find time to vote for anything. No matter what it is always find time to complain about. How the election turns out? Well, there is that let let me let me point out. Okay. This is kind of unusual for people in talk radio to understand. But there are individuals out there who have no idea what's going on aside from their daily lives. I mean, they have great jobs. They make money. I'm not saying they're out. I'm not saying they're on drugs or they're disconnected. They just don't follow current events. You ask them who the governor is the governor could sit next to them. They'd have no idea the mayor as well. They they've they could never identify a state Representative or state Senator or congressperson. It's just not what they do. They don't pick up the paper. And if they do it's for the obituaries of the sports section, and by the way, I'm not criticizing these individuals. They just have other interests they might be into bird watching or exercise or raising kids. They're just not gonna follow the muck in city hall in the state house in Washington DC. And so those people. Choose not to vote which I think is a legitimate option. You all don't have to be following this twenty four seven some people do but other people do not now, let's say someone doesn't follow. Do. We really want them to vote because we say, oh, it's really a good idea to get everybody out there to vote. Well, what if you haven't followed the issue tall? You know, we want you weighing in who's the better candidate for assessor? Well, actually, I don't even know that..

"Realm for the Roman Catholic for everybody. Who's had their suggestions? Okay. This is interesting. Jacob Barker in today's Saint Louis post dispatch takes a look at the money. The city has given away in property taxes. Recently last year the city reduced its coffers by thirty one million dollars through property tax cuts. So the solution merge. Get some of that money out of the pair. By the way, the Saint Louis public schools last year, thanks to these cuts. They lost nineteen million dollars. Now, why is the city having issues? Well, a lot of people don't think the schools are good enough. Why are the schools? Good enough. Just last year alone. Eighteen point nine million dollars lost tax abatements. Can you imagine how many teachers and counselors and programs? They could get for nineteen million dollars. Then there's also the tax increment finance projects, which are going to divert three hundred sixty four million dollars in future revenue, according to controller, Darlene greens report. Three hundred sixty four million dollars going to be lost to the city because we've said to people who have projects. Hey, you want to build a grocery store, we'll help subsidize it you want to build an apartment complex and one of the top zip codes around the central western well, subsidize it, and then we wonder we don't have money to pick up the trash where the money go. The money went to that guy. Who's building the apartment building on north kings highway overlooking forest park, which they should be paying us to build with property on forest park rather on king's highway overlooking forest park. So you get a sunset over forest park. And they had to subsidize the developer to do that. Makes no sense to me. But now people are saying the in the region's problems are that we don't have one government. Maybe the region's problems are that the largest city keeps giving away. The candy store. I have in front of me exhibit A this is called an assessment of the effectiveness and fiscal impacts of the use of development incentives in the Saint Louis region. Final report from the east west gateway council of governments and they take a look at the numbers and local governments gave away five point eight billion dollars in public tax dollars to subsidize private development. But period was that. Last twenty years. Private development has been subsidized by more than five point eight billion dollars over the last twenty years. I'm sure some of those projects are worthwhile. And they're in areas that really need incentives. Not all of them. And we wonder CHee-hwa why don't we why is the sales tax so high. Well lot of these projects have been subsidized. So we still need the money. Let's pass it onto granny who pays sales tax three one four four three six seven nine hundred eight hundred nine to five eleven twenty last night. The news hour on channel nine took a look at edible marijuana. We'll give you that information next on the voice of Saint Louis away..

"St Louis. Thanks for joining us everybody. We're talking about a possible merger between the city and the county. It's an idea that has been floated by better together and leaked to the Saint Louis business journal, my theory as to why it was leaked at this time. There was Jeremy colour. Jacob Barker were working on a piece on the Saint Louis port authority that apparently concerned the port authority so much that they started releasing comments about it in advance of its release. And I wonder if those I it was not very complimentary of the county executive Steve stinger, and I wonder if Stang or someone and by the way, this rank speculation, I don't know this to be true have no evidence. But I wonder if this was released to be a decoy so that people would pay less attention to the port authority story that Barker and colour had and more attention to this. I don't know one problem is many people do not have a subscription to the Saint Louis business journal, including members of the media, and they can't get beyond the firewall. So I think a lot of people have not read this story about the possible merger of the city and the county for if they had I think it would be the number one story on every. Television and radio station. Don't you? I do. I mean, what what affects us more in Washington around the Rio Grande border anything any nothing as much as this right here. We're talking about one police department for the city and the county now overall one police department would have officiency because you'd have one police chief in that ninety or so right, Tim, well, but you can also be too large. I did the accreditation for the New York City police department and Chicago PD those are examples of two large. So you don't want to get that big because the bureaucracy takes over at that point. So I think medium is is good. You do gain those efficiencies. But when he gets too big you lose a lot of them. Well, it's a lot of scholars support for what the j just said. And that is the bureaucracies get larger need is called the levion Levi. Anthony affect that. So that is not more efficient. It's less efficient. While also we sometimes think that. Bigger is better because we hear about abuses in the is small north county police departments where the hamlet has fifty residents something like that. But recently four police officers were indicted, not by. Not not not officers for a small hamlet like champ or Westwood. But by the Saint Louis metropolitan police department, which is the largest police department in the state. So it's not as if being big is entirely virtuous and small is evil. Right. And generally when it comes to police services, not as much the administration, it's the patrolman on the street. So if you actually looked at wanted to look at the police department says stainless county and look at response times and the response times of the municipal police departments to the time, they get a call, and they they get on scene are much faster than most of the larger departments in the area. And if you just joined us folks were talking about the possibility of merging the city and the county it's going to be we are told on the ballot and twenty twenty statewide ballot. So everyone in the state of Missouri who votes will decide the future of the county in the city for some reason. And there would be one police department with one police chief, there would be no more county executive there would be a mayor. And by the way, these offices will be based. In downtown Saint Louis now, they have not talked about merging the fire department's chief, Tim Fitch. Why do you think that's true? I believe it's because the fire unions are very strong. And I think they just as soon not deal with opposing the fire unions. That's my my best educated. Guess and there's a lot of disparity between the some of the districts in their pay rate Perry. Disparity. So if you're going to consolidate those and have to they're certainly not going to lower the pay they're going to bring up those other departments or there's other districts to to to the higher districts and the money's not there. You can't eliminate the earnings tax and keep adding things on every place else. How about you? Dr jones. Why do you think schools weren't included because that's the third rail of reform at the local level people very much value local control of the schools, not simply in the Saint Louis area, but throughout the country, and if you start to talk about closing down all of the school districts, then you're going to get a significant amount of opposition from a wide range of sources if we're better together. Why wasn't Saint Charles county included in all of this? It's a tradition here in the Saint Louis region. And it's not a good one is to ignore the fact that Saint Louis city and Saint Louis county are no longer as much a part are the share of the overall region as they once were there less than half. And so Saint Charles county is not nearly as much as the table as it should be on these kinds of discussions when I got here thirty years ago. Saint Charles county hit about three hundred thousand population Saint Louis city about four hundred thousand and now it's reversed indeed and was less than three hundred thousand when you arrived in it's now you're right approaching four hundred thousand hey, let's take a few phone calls at four three six seven nine hundred eight hundred nine to five eleven twenty. I I would just like to hear what people say what kind of reaction you have to this story. And that is that the county and the city will merge about fifteen months after the twenty twenty elections. If voters in the state approve this there's gonna be a statewide ballot. And it's going to be funded by Rex. Field. And it's according to the story in the Saint Louis business journal, Saint Louis city and Saint Louis county would be one with one mayor no more county executive one assessor one prosecutor, and there's one other one police chief as well. So there are many many applications, and we'll take a few phone calls. Just to kind of get your reaction to this Warwick wars anybody talking about this yesterday when you're sworn in Tim Fitch, absolutely not. Really no comments whatsoever about this. Where did anyone ask you? I know you feel the questions from the press after did none of the press asked me about it either. All they asked me a police budget cuts, and what my relationship would be with the county executive. They didn't ask is this not an issue. I don't maybe they get they're up against the firewall business journal. You know, it's not like reporters are paid handsome salaries like the old days. So it's possible. They don't pay for the firewall could be what do you think Terry? I think indeed. While the business journal is a very well respected publication its audience is a fairly narrow one in terms of the size and scope. Yeah. I mean, it's an active probably affluent audience some guessing right up say business sympathetic audience. Yeah. Right. Absolutely. Do does anybody in the room have any concern that all of this is put together by a group called better together? God love him, wonderful people. They extensively surveyed in conducted studies on whether it would be better to have a county and city merger. But by the very name of the organization, didn't they show us their hand early on in other words, how how unbiased can they possibly be if the name of the organization is better together. Yeah, charlie. I don't think that this plan should surprise anybody. They've pretty much eliminated the municipalities in this process. Not wanting us to be part of the process as they develop this plan, which they said they had town hall meetings while they had town hall meetings. But again, if you take that into account, the percentage of people that actually participated in those, and it's a very small percentage of the Saint Louis residents actually had input in it. This has been their plan all along I think to come up with some type of huge structural change. And I don't think they wanted to answer some of the questions that we would have been able to raise going through that process. Let's go to Sean online one. Hi, Sean, you're on camel X. What do you think about merging the county in the city? Good morning, gentlemen. How are you? All great. Thank you. I mixed emotions about it on one hand. I agree that there should be local controls or school districts. However, there is such a dynamic such a huge difference in the way that policing across our region has been implemented, and we have in my opinion way too, many, faith Dems, and wait too many extremely well to shoot a police the small municipalities in which they call overlord their powers, we can create significant existences if we've had an across the region, and I'm gonna say, you know, and you may not like that like the LA county police department where they have different districts different wars different precincts, but they all run at a much higher level at a much lower cost. Interesting call thanks a lot for joining us. Sean. What do you think Tim? What did I think that one was coming to me? Well, you are the former Saint Louis county. Police chief you have been on accreditation panels. Now, your member of the Saint Louis county council, he mentioned the LA county police department. There's no such thing. It's the county sheriff's office. There's an elected sheriff that runs that department. So he answers directly to the people much different than a police chief would now again, I've been out there. Many times did accreditations not of the sheriff's office, but of municipalities in L A county the bureaucracy. There is unbelievable many issues misconduct, particularly in the jail LA county. I think it's a bad example is my point. Yes, you do gain some efficiencies. But I go back to what I said earlier, you can't be too big it if Brentwood wants to have its own police department as professional as well paid. And that's what the citizens want. Who are we to say that they shouldn't have that? That's their choice. That's their decision. Well, I will say I lived in Brentwood for years about ten of them. And we did get to know members of the police department and the chief at the time and. And I wonder if there's a chief that's based in downtown Saint Louis if you'd still have that access and familiarity, I dunno Terry, you would not in. That's why citizens prefer the local approach. In addition, those things where we knew need efficiencies of scale like a single information system, which we have with the regional Justice information system. The major case squad. We have an effective single air force for Saint Louis county. Saint Charles county in the city of Saint Louis. City of Saint Louis, please we have achieved that through collaboration cooperation gotta take a break here. But when we come back, we'll get to more of your phone calls.

Also, Peter Mayer, he his family just got a personal invitation to the White House ran to the White House. But to the funeral for President George Herbert Walker. Bush was recently in Kenneth Burke, bunk Bart visiting the Bush family, so we'll check in with him about that. Tomorrow, we are going to carry the funeral from the National Cathedral live on Campbell exits in the ten o'clock hour are scheduled guest Curtis. Joseph. Is gonna come down to k Molex? I'll interview him and then that'll be on Thursdays show so of Curtis Joseph on Thursday, but he is in town today and tonight, you can meet cujo at the Spencer road branch library in Saint Peter's. So that's fantastic. The hook the book, by the way is an extraordinary memoir. Yes, of course include his playing days, but I don't think most people understand at least I did not the abuse. He went through as a kid. In fact, it was so bad. I couldn't sleep on Friday night go into Saturday. I just couldn't stop thinking about. I had no idea. And I I don't know how forthcoming he's going to be because this is really difficult stuff. So cujo tonight at Spencer road branch, nother hockey book out and then tomorrow night, he's going to be the enterprise centre before the game signing actually signing might be more interested in the game. We'll find out so okay. Lots of phone calls coming in it looks like it's ladies day. I think there's one. Childhood expert after another calling it or maybe they're calling about Kareem hunt. But everybody we're going to get to you. So be patient. But everybody also be brief and to the point. So we can get to a lot of callers starting with Donna, Donna, the premadonna. Well, I don't know about that. But I have a definite opinion on the play pin issue when a working parent puts their child in a daycare situation, they aren't expecting. They're expecting more than just someone to to keep them alive. End of the day. They expect them to to care for them and to nurture them. The only reason you would put a lid on a play pin is. So you could put a child in a room close the door and expect that they would be in there and not get out of the play pin unless you're assuming that the child is already old enough to stand off. Yeah. I think there's no there's no acceptable. So yeah. That would be that would be appropriate. Honestly, it it sounds really backward. Very backward and not appropriate in Maplewood, Missouri. You know, I I wouldn't think it would be appropriate and third world country. Frankly. Sorry, sorry. I could be wrong. I don't profess to be an expert at parenting or child rearing far from it. Julie good morning. You're on kmox. Julie. Good morning. I am a seventy year old grandmother, and we raised six children, which has special needs. And never did. I put something to contain my child in the place where they slept. Yeah. It is a dangerous dangerous practice, and I just I vote. No, absolutely not. So I agree with the caller ahead of me that when you pay for daycare, you expect nurturing sure not expect that well. Yeah. It was an unlicensed daycare facility, and we do have them here and people want that that's what people want apparently. However, she we have legislation to prevent people from putting plastic lids on top of play pens. The woman has not been charged with any crime. Now when the police got to her house, they say that they smelt they smelled alcohol on her breath. She claims to be Mormon who drinking the night before. Hello, kevin. You're next on KOMO ex. I agree with the previous two. Interesting. Why would they what is like empty milk plates? The baby. In that case, we're not sure yet because the infant apparently flipped on its. Either stomach back back to stomach and they're they're still investigating that caused a death. Kevin four three six seven nine hundred eight hundred nine to five eleven twenty in other news today. We'll get to more phone calls momentarily. There's a story, but Jacob Barker in today's post-dispatch taking a look at the Saint Louis county port authority in a deal that it made with an organization headed up by John Rallo, R A L, L O and Corey Krista Nell and the whole plan was to give land to these two and in exchange. They would develop it, and they promise that they would get three hundred jobs in a fifty million dollar deal. The latest proposal from them after they bought the land from the county is that it's going to be. Twenty-five jobs in seven million. So they went from three hundred jobs. Their original proposal to twenty five fifty million dollar project to seven. Rallo happens to be a contributor to the county executive Steve stinger who oversees the port authority, and some people have alleged look he's rewarding the port authority contracts to his donors, and in fact, Rallo who's an insurance man got the contract for a hundred thousand dollars to promote the area post, Ferguson. Even though he's an insurance guy had no marketing expertise whatsoever. It was completely beyond and then mysteriously the proposal went from one hundred thousand one hundred thirty thousand and what he did get was a column written by Mantell Williams. With Typos that was published. I think either Huffington Post her MSNBC something like that. Folks, we gotta keep our eye on this. This port authority seems to have some certainly questionable dealings in Saint Louis county. If you have given money to the county executive there's a chance you got contract from the port authority or a deal again. The original plan three hundred jobs in Welson fifty million dollars now down to seven jobs, not seventy five twenty five jobs three hundred twenty five three hundred jobs to twenty-five. So there's that. Okay. I'm going to take a break here. And then when we come back, we're going to continue our discussion of President Bush who died, of course over the weekend. And there are some who are saying, you know, what one of his legacies for the worse is Willie Horton. But there are some aspects to Willie Horton that I think have largely been forgotten or maybe never disseminated in the first place. So we'll get into that on the voice of Saint Louis Charlie Brennan, inviting you to join me for a great vacation in September. Actually, a wife is going to be going along as well. We're gonna be taking Oceana cruises. Sean is very well known for its outstanding food starting in Stockholm and was stops in places like Saint Petersburg Russia will be in Helsinki, many other Baltic cities and there were heading to London at the end. It's going to be a fantastic crews, and.

"Credits and by the way he bought the property at about seventy percent higher in two thousand eleven. Two thousand twelve than it had sold for in two thousand and seven before the recession right right that that's one of the questions is. Is you know why why the price went up so much, they reported is about sixteen point four, million back. In that was in two thousand eleven, and two thousand twelve back in two thousand seven when the CR g and play, Corp, affiliated. Entities bought it, it was reported as about nine point six billion so at the height of the market it. Was actually less than during the days. Of the worst recession. Since the depression right right and you know and really it was. Just. Two parties that had worked closely together who signed all the paperwork I mean. There there wasn't, a Bank there, was no appraisal the law did not. Require an appraisal to report this To the state for tax credits. So does he get the tax credit before you even develops the property because folks we failed to mention after the guy got nine million dollars in state tax credits which is the, equivalent, of. Cash right well you can sell those tax credits you can sell them probably for about ninety five. Cents on the dollar something like that I'm like yeah he hasn't developed anything they're they're it's it's still an empty parking lots and without. A football team can't even tailgate on them anymore so okay, laser gentleman here's what happened a fella, Paul Mckee. We've talked about him before buys a, piece of property at seventy percent more than the property had sold for five six, years, before. He gets a, fifty percent tax credit on the sale of property plus commissions and interest and other fees so. He gets a nine million dollar tax. Credit from Jefferson City. That's nine million dollars he hasn't done anything there yet And that's that's. A really good business that he's Well. The that program is is no longer with us the. Distressed area program did sunset in twenty thirteen, soco there are no more of those tax credits but you reported before this is the only time he did something like this because you did a story. Earlier, on what was, called the BUSTER Brown, building yeah the I. Mean that's the reason this this all came up you know this this transaction happened back in twenty eleven in two thousand twelve and with with recent issues that both the city and the. State and the attorney general have have brought up the attorney general's filed suit. To recover, some tax credits on a different transaction This has. Come up because it shares some similarities chiefly that it was seller financed and that the values reported to the state are. Much higher over just a couple of years over appraised value and over appraised value okay? So, has there been development at the BUSTER Brown building. No the BUSTER Brown building no longer exists that was. That was one that the city had to, acquire for the project the national geospatial intelligence agency and that is part of the reason that the city found out about some of these other transactions when. They, were fighting with, that property owner over, eminent domain and the. Price of the building that they were going to pay they got access to all these documents from mckee's company and started seeing some of these seller finance transactions that raised questions would it. Be fair to say that for some of the buyers of this real estate The buyer. Is in better position the higher the price, of the land the more he or she has to pay for it in this case he Paul Mckee the better financially he is which is. Of course the opposite, for the rest of us if we buy? Home for, fifty thousand dollars that's better than buying a home for one hundred thousand but in this case because your tax credits depend on the price of the property by you're better off the more the more money the more. Money. You supposedly spent on this new property well I mean? If, it was a a normal Bank-financed transaction. Not necessarily because he would still owe money on that he would only beginning, fifty percent of the value. In tax credits the difference here is he's just writing I owe us and not putting any money down initially and there are people that that he has past relationships wet so as I pointed out in the story some of. Those I owe you some of the notes that he signed over to the people who used to own this property our. Past do so the question is are they going to take the property back I mean Are, they going to get paid back do, they care that's really interesting Jacob Barker from the batch. Thank you very, much for sharing, your thoughts with us today really appreciate, thanks for coming down to our radio station today to explain some of these details thanks for, having me Charlie all right folks what do you think..

"Jacob? Barker is in the house with the post? Dispatch, has been there for four or so years is, a pri- abroad grad of university of Missouri journalism school I. Presume my correct that's right hey good, to have you, on Cam wax on our program anyway for the first time and you do take a look in today's paper at the ballot issues there are a couple of them three of them I think that, involve county council, functions that are, in front of the county voters on this primary day and some people are. Wondering okay are these still relevant are or have the judges throwing them out or, exactly what's going on can you give us the, executive summary here well two. Of them. Are are definitely on the ballot and there's there's not a lot of questions. About him yet one of them would give, the council, the, county council the ability to hire, their own, lawyer because some Of them question whether they can get independent legal advice from the county, councillor Peter crane who statistically supervised, by the executive. Branch and Steve singer yeah that that's a fair question so you've got the executive branch the county executive, Steve Stang or he's got, his. Attorney but the county council kind of like the legislature doesn't have a legal counsel so this? Measure would allow them to hire a lawyer? Right, right when when they're at odds with the with, the county executive and the county executive branch which has happened. A lot recently and there are so, there's no legal, dispute about that particular measure not not right now Then the next question, like if, Ernie trae does some outside legal work and he's a member of the county council but let's say he works for. A. School district that's outside the, county some are saying that he should, be removed, from office for. Doing that and I think that one of measures addresses, that yeah it would it would change the, definition of employment I believe it, is? In. In the county charter to match. The state's definition and that's an attempt to clarify some of the issues that have been brought up where you know perhaps councilman trae kissed did violate the. The, letter of of the wall. In terms of doing some you, know just a, couple thousand dollars really of of work, for out state school districts and that that has become an issue yes so. In this particular case I know you don't share your, opinion, but. I I'll share mine trae is is working for the county as a councilman but he's, doing contract work as a lawyer I think for. Other school districts right yeah he he did in, the past I believe He. He practises employment law I believe that's what. Was involved and it was a couple of I dunno which school districts but couple of them. Out state where he he got a few thousand dollars in legal bills. I would not see that as a conflict but I could see if. You were one of his political enemies and we're. Trying, to get. Him out of office you might use. That loophole maybe okay so that would be on the ballot is that those. Two are on the ballot and they're good and they're fine yeah I mean they were challenged but, a judge ruled late last month that those were okay it said one was confusing and that's the, one that, deals with campaign contributions in the county and and there's another couple of there's another measure in there that would give. The. County more authority to move, money around in the indicating budget without, approval of, the county executive. Okay so let's take a look at those campaign contributions, they would limit it limit the campaign contributions, to I think twenty six hundred, dollars? An. Election cycle yeah yeah and then. You couldn't Campaign contributions if you wanted a contract with the county with within a certain window yeah yeah that's what it says and. I. Think that's an reaction to the county executive who's. Gotten as you've reported about three hundred sixty five thousand dollars from the Gardner brothers who got the. Contract. To. Redevelop north west plaza One, judge a cannon gave. The county executive twenty thousand dollars after which he was appointed to the bench and we could go on with other examples some people said. Hey there's too much money being spread and your colleague Tony messenger had a column. Over the, weekend show that wreck Sinfield gave one hundred sixty thousand? Dollars. On one day to an effort to support the county executive in some way yeah I. Mean he he? Made. A connection with with some different donations I mean who, knows if that's what that donation was really four okay so let let's let's. Find out then that that issue may or may not be relevant is, that correct yeah so when the judge made his ruling in late July he said that that measure, on campaign contributions was confusing and was going. To he couldn't, strike, it from the ballot because it was too late Okay. So basically election authorities in. The county were instructed so if you vote in the county. Today you'll see a little flyer on the polling booth that says disregard it's proposition for disregard this proposed charter amendment but the council members of the council filed a notice that they were going to appeal that judge's ruling on Friday so they. Are arguing that maybe your. Votes might count if their appeals ultimately successful so you could vote on it it but we just don't know what's going to happen as a result right right all right and. There's. No penalty, for voting on now you can't get in trouble for. Voting all, right okay so there you have that now let's go? Back. To the weekend edition of the paper the post-dispatch when you had a story taking a. Look at Paul? Mckee. Who had basically taken advantage of a state law that, allowed him to get some tax credits like up to fifty percent of the. Amount of money he spends on property it was distressed area land Distressed distressed area land assemblage tax credit yeah it's DA l. as some people call it and it allowed him, and I think only him To be able to amass land and, then. Get a tax credit for fifty percent of the price of the property. Along with interest and some real estate commissions and other matters right so let's say he bought a piece of property for, a thousand dollars he, would get a, five hundred dollar tax credit and. That tax credit can be used to offset his. Obligation estate taxes or if he doesn't oh state, taxes he could sell that tax credit so it's real money that we were giving away and when it came to the so-called bottle district which probably when you were in grade school Jacob discussing quite a bit on this program because everyone was really enthusiastic that north of the Edward. Jones dome there was going to be this, bottle district? With, go kart, races and DisneyWorld who? Knows, what else they're never came to fruition but Mr. Mckee kind of. Bought that property didn't he Yeah he says he. He bought it the the the thing we honed in on is that when he says he bought it he there was there was no cash down it was it was seller finance so it's not like he went out to a Bank and the Bank said hey this is a, good. Deal we're gonna lend the money for you to pay the sellers the. Sellers basically let Mckee right an IOU to them and they reported the price and the thing is is the sellers had, worked closely with Mckee, and other projects, in north park it's Larry Chapman. Of CR g which is kind of the development. Firm related works closely with Klay co the big, construction firm so Quaco and CR g sold property to Mckee but they didn't take any money for it well they eventually did but not until Mckee got the tax credits year later and sold them and then he made a payment so he gets fifty percent of a his tax..

On our program as an advocate for the disadvantaged and he ran the circle of concern food pantry for years I. Think plan is now. Retired but he and his lovely wife left their car after attending ten thirty mass on Sunday morning at Saint Matthias church that's in Lima township right is that near Rivas. Barracks So anyway on the windshields, he, says, was, this flyer any Senate to me apparently. Ron Ron, Maha is, running for state, rep and he, is a Republican I checked out his website looks legit he's. Pro-life and he's got a lot of positions that are typical. For Republicans and here's what the, flyer says though Ron Ron Maha birth name but some Abraham Rama birthplace unknown highschool unknown work unclear dozens of public. Court documents suggest he's. An. Apartment slum Lord religion Islam Meet but some. Rama on ninety fourth district Representative he might have come to your door asking. For your vote but ask about, his, past, or his name and, he squirms he privately boasts. Of his, campaign strategy. And, that is to tell mosques to flood voting booths to, undermine, the, election So and it's not signed by anybody this flyer it's an anti Muslim flyer that was. Left Sunday we understand from. Mr. Keenan on the windshields of the. Cars during a Roman. Catholic mass now I don't, hold anyone accountable because I don't know who. Did this but it would be nice if the representatives of, the archdiocese would apologize for this or at, least for that perish you got a parking lot someone's. On it distributing anti Islamic stuff I wouldn't say apologize just decry the flyer There's no room for that churchgoers should not come out and see. That kind of hate our. First of all people shouldn't be spreading. That and it shouldn't. Happen on church property He says you won't see any. Of his signs this year's that. Because he doesn't think he needs you to win no the. Candidates and then they show a mask on the, flyer and they call it theocracy so Yeah there we are in two thousand eighteen I don't know who, spread this for all I know could be an inside job but it's ugly. And Very very disappointed very disappointing to see that, now, I'm told that's not that unusual as a matter of fact. Glenn in his. Email to me said.
