Fast Food Industry Is at a Breaking Point With the Labor Shortage

"Flying into Greenville Spartanburg international airport yesterday and flying over those beautiful mountains and all those trees. And it just feels good to be home again. And I made a stop like I often do at the Wendy's over unpleasant bird. And I drove up to the drive-through, pleasant, sounding guy says, welcome to Wendy's. We're sorry for the inconvenience, however, we are, we have a staffing shortage, so we're unable to serve you today. Have a nice day. And it wasn't a recording. He was at the booth. He was in the window there. Shooing people away. 'cause they can't get enough people to work at the Wendy's on pleasantburg in Greenville South Carolina on a Sunday afternoon. Now, a lot of homeless people in the streets of New York there's a lot of people trying to figure out how to feed their families. You think there might be somebody interested in working at Wendy's on a Sunday afternoon? Wonder what Wendy's pays. People can't find work? I mean, employees can't find employer, employers can find employees. People can find work. It's right there. They can't even flip a burger. On a Wendy's on a Wendy at a Wendy's on a Sunday afternoon. They don't have enough people. And I just can't get this out of my head. So think about this. They're paying a guy to tell the people driving in the because Wendy's doesn't have shit down service. My pal Joey Hudson reminded me that most of these fast food chains still don't let you sit down. Incidentally, what's up with that? Why are all these chains refusing to let people go in and sit down and have a meal? Is this pandemic ever going to end for corporate America?

I like the cat named my daughter Carolina so you could go either way for that right go right well. Thank you for a few minutes of your time this morning. of course we're living in crazy times And as someone who has been to a number of trump campaign rallies I I was in Orlando by the way I saw you guys. I was on radio. Row over there. in Orlando at the big kickoff Back last year seems like it was forever ago You know and you guys were in Charleston in Charlotte. Not Too long ago now. We can't even have groups of three or more houses affected the trump twenty twenty campaign. Yeah it's been a big change. I mean obviously you know how much the president loves to host the rallies. You're talking about and you know we're talking about tens of thousands of people that would come out to Just you the president but we are in a different space right now with the trump campaign. I think the good news is that broader scale campaign manager was digital director in two thousand sixteen and he really brought the campaign to a place where we are able to basically move to a completely digital platform right now. So we're hosting virtual events all across the country where hosting virtual town halls round tables were connecting with around a million people every time we host one of these events and that's great news. I think we'll all be really excited whenever we go back to normal and and get back out and campaigned campaign the way that we like to do but currently that's how we're doing it you know. I'm I'm at my home with my kids and my dog. My husband We live in New York now so obviously we are not able to to go into the office But but this is how we're gonNA live life for a little while and then we hope to be back to normal. You know that we're having the Republican National Convention in Charlotte This year so in August. We're hoping to be there and we're hoping that things move forward as normal but we're taking it day by day like everybody. It's a very exciting time. And you know with with this national emergency that we're fighting every day I it sometimes is hard to remember that. We're in in the middle of a very important election year and of course being here in upstate South Carolina. We're so looking forward to hosting people A lot of people in our area or volunteers Do you believe that An nope look. No one has a crystal ball. Do you think that we're going to be able to have that convention in Charlotte the summer? Well we're certainly moving forward as though we are. You know we have a great team that we put together I've been there many times to to work with our team on the ground. Obviously I was really excited to to get the convention in my home state and We're very hopeful that things are going to go forward as we planned. We have a very unique and really exciting mentioned Especially for a Republican convention. I think a lot of unexpected things that people really want to see. So we're hopeful. We're look we're going forward as though it's going to happen And we'll just have to keep our fingers crossed. I guess just with me on the ninety four five the answer guest line this morning Laura trump of course married to the present son Eric and a very vital part of the trump twenty twenty campaign. election Kobe Nineteen Laura has presented a lot of challenges. Things that we none of us ever dreamed that we would live in a time. Like this The president's been out front Literally holding to our briefings daily being very transparent with the American people. Can you give us a glimpse inside of what his Typical Day looks like? How does he keep the positive attitude? And and the the stamina has I mean these are long days for him and they are long days and I don't think we've ever seen a president day after day to your point. Hold these two plus hour press briefing. Stand up there every single question. Make sure that the American people have every bit of information that he can offer for them. I give him a lot of credit. It's not easy. There's no question who shied away from. He wants to make sure that everybody gets vital information. Look I'm still surprised that he has such a great attitude Whenever I speak to him husbands speak to him he really. I think is confident that we'll get through this as a country that will come out the other side and I think look. There's any person you want in the White House leading this country to make sure that we recovered from this on an economic level Bring jobs back into this country. Make sure people get back to work. It's Donald Trump so He did it once. Three years of of Donald Trump. We saw where we were as a country. We saw record highs in the stock market record. Low unemployment numbers at one point. I think we had a million more jobs than we even had people to fill them so He's confident he knows. We're going to get through this. Look where the United States of America. We've overcome so much in our short history. We will get through this together But I'm still shocked. By how he he operates every single day with a great attitude And and knows that you know. We're we're doing the right things to get our country through this as quickly as possible with me this morning trump and you're so right I am I just I. I feel like that. We're so blessed to have donald trump at the helm during these very trying times because He's done at once he can do it again in no one better and I think this just really Supports the case for reelection in November. Two because Look Laura I I think we all know that things aren't gonNA turn around is going to take a little time. I think is going to happen quickly. Because we had a great economy up before we headed into this Do you think that the Democrats I all you think? They're going to cooperate with giving the president what he needs you know. It looks like we're going to need additional relief. Funds a lot of industry hurting out there the the airlines I know were included in some of the initial funds but there are a lot of other businesses out there to it. Looks like that the initial funding is probably going to be depleted soon What's the attitude among the the trump administration on whether or not we're going to be able to get additional support? Well I certainly hope so I mean I. We would hope at a time like this that we can all put politics aside and do what we know is right for this country. Make sure that people are able to sustain themselves. Their families make sure the small businesses are closing in this country because of this crisis. We're in right now. That said you saw that the Democrats I'd to get real slick with The first round they tried to add in the green deal. They tried to get all kinds of ridiculous things. Put in the relief. Package and the president rightly called them on it and said this is not what we're doing right now. Look I certainly hope that When it comes down to it they can see past petty politics and see that they to help a fellow Americans and make sure that That people are able to get through this But I I wish I had a crystal ball at I can tell you that think that you know we should all look at this time to come together and if there's one good thing to take out of this other than spending a lot more time with our families that would probably otherwise wouldn't you can probably hear my kids in the background right now I think you know maybe we can put aside our differences for one. Maybe we can say it's not about politics about the bigger picture and is about all of us as Americans That sure is my hope as we move forward here and hopefully we see that happen because again there are a lot of Americans hurting out there. There are a lot of businesses. Of course that need help. I mean look the industry that I work in radio You know a lot of small businesses aren't able to continue advertising and we're going to need. Can you put in a good word with the president for the dog his ear? Don't worry one. Quick thing Laura because I know you're busy on Thursdays here on the morning answer we call them thankful Thursday because we like to spend a few minutes talking about the things that we're thankful for and in these these horrible times that we're living right now some of the challenges I it's easy to kind of get bogged down in the doom and gloom. But there's also a lot to be thankful for. Let me ask you a real quickly. What something you're thankful for on this Thursday. I'm just thankful to be an American. My husband and I were talking about it last night at dinner. Think about living in any other country right now. Think about how great it is. We can all even in a tough time like this. Gather around the table at night as a family. Eat dinner together. Come together pray It's really great to be an American and I feel like we're all so blessed to live in this country that We are lower trump. Thank you for your time this morning. God bless you and the entire your family the president of course Be Sure and let him know that he has a lot of supporters here. IN UPSTATE. South Carolina Western North Carolina.

You watch party last night, had a big crowd about half of the people in the room actually were completely new people never been to Republican party needing four, so, which which is goes to prove that the president has drawn a lot of new people into our party. So grow our party, we saw evidence of that and the elections here in two thousand eighteen here in South Carolina when we were able to actually beat Democrats by eight points on a straight ticket ballot statewide.

Mom Arrested For Confronting Bullies at Son's School

"Frustrated by what she believed was bullying her third grade son with fewer than three weeks left in the school year, an upstate mom, Jamie. Rathburne entered green by Brier elementary school, and confronted his classmates. She then left and was arrested three days later, she was charged with disturbing schools and booked into the rainbow county detention center before being released on personal recognizance bond. Ms rathburne, says that she regrets or actions, but remains concerned about bullying for her son, and other children, and that she's disappointed in the response. She's gotten from the green will county school district. Joining me for few minutes morning, Jamie. Rathburne, good morning. How are you? Good morning, I've been better. So. So this house like you have had better days. So MS rathburne, walk me through this, obviously, your son has had some issues there 'em. Bullying really is. That's a big issue in school these days, right? I think it is. I wanna losing kids less than right, the suicide. And it all boils down to go lee-ing. These kids aren't having the mental health they need to be able to deal with these difficult life situations that they come across. And if we don't provide the them the tools that they need now how do we expect them to function at nineteen and twenty nine in the real world? So your son was having some issues there were some kids bullying him at school. All year. And had you talk with teachers and administrators about this. Yes, we had several emails. I had several meetings, I had emailed, the assistant superintendent and anytime I had asked the superintendent about how to grow it at filing a formal an administrative complaint. The conversation got pushed to another topic another part of the conversation. And because you know, they're you know, there's been going on for long. So I'm emotional. And I don't bring it back to that point until I still yet to find out how to go about doing that. I still yet to find out and they're like, oh, we give you this information at the beginning of year. I'm like that's a long time ago. Do you know how much paper I have and just one year? You know what I mean? Full again, and how much time could it take for them to give it to you again? I if you need. So you so you weren't getting a response from the teachers the administrators they responded, but I don't feel as though they responded appropriately to nor it because they were the kids, we're trying to get a reaction out of him. And that's all s hard to do sometimes as a kid. I mean you can't just ignore boys. All right. So this was happening. You weren't getting the response that you felt like you needed. They weren't doing anything about it. So you decided to go over to the school this morning, and you went to his class and take it from there. Yeah. I mean, I decided to go to school and give them a piece of my mind, basically, and it wasn't right. And I don't know that I don't know what I could have done differently to get the issues in the spotlight because my son asked for help he went unhurt, nobody listens. Nobody seems to care when I politely asked followed all the rules and gave them all the sport support that they needed to be able to do their job in whatever capacity that they needed to I felt. And so I was just being told what I wanted to hear to get me out the door, and my son will come home the same day, and there would be more issues. I get wasn't a dress and the breaking point for me was when I told the principal expected, her at my exact words were expect you to handle this officially and effectively, or I'm going to be forced to file an administrative complaint on the hills meal, even the office from saying that they turned around. And retaliated what I felt like their tally Gatien all my child because all year long. They didn't do nothing to protect him. And now they want to single him out. The teacher follows them all day. They only allow him to play on certain equipment on the playground. You know, he has to say what the teacher at lunch, and then they tell him that the teacher is going to be with him for the rest of the year since he's an instigator. This is wrong. Top of that. The secretary went and posted she violated the child Privacy Act oppose impersonal information on Facebook about my child, and then when she was called L on it. The lead it, you don't think they're gonna try to cover that up. Coursing are. I'm not asking for jobs. I'm just asking them to do what I did you wrong apologize and work with me on funding better solution for all of these children.

"Join us for a few minutes this morning on the morning answer. Welcome in how are you, sir? Joey, thank you so much for taking the time. I really do appreciate it. We'll we'll thank you, because I want to be sure that our listeners understand this up is kind of early for you. You're, you're out on the west coast. And this is live folks, when, when I asked Larry, to come on for a few minutes, I said, look, we can record this and he wanted no part of this because he wanted all of you in upstate, South Carolina, western North Carolina and northeast Georgia to know how important this is to him. Thank you for waking up early. Oh, it's my pleasure really in a minute, we're going to talk about your book a lot like me a father and son's journey to reconciliation. But before we go there, just quickly, you wrote an article week or so ago, titled Democrats twenty twenty the grievance party you wrote in 'em reading from it by density, politics. Democrats. Really mean grievances? The party leaders pushed an active that blacks Hispanics gaze at, Sandra are victims whether do inequality or sexism, racism or other ISM. Tell us about that. What what did you mean by that layer? The Democratic Party. It really isn't a collection of values and collection of principles, this question of people that are angry this, that, or the other that believe that the forces conspire against them, and hold them back or principal example, is this, I that the Obama pushed every single year that women make seventy seven cents or eighty cents depending upon the survey on the dollar compared to men for doing the very same work. Joey, if that were true, if you're an employer and you have a bunch of men, and you have a bunch of women willing to work for less money, you can pay them less and there'll be equally productive. You would fire all the men hire women and pocket the difference, yet, this is a lie that the Democrats keep pedalling another one is that blacks are subjected to institutional racism, it is simply not true. The Washington Post looked at about a thousand people who were killed by the police in the recent year, toured and fifty of them. We're, we're, we're, we're black five hundred of them were white there. About fourteen or fifteen black men, who were unarmed were killed by the police. And by the way, unarmed does not mean not dangerous. Michael Brown was not armed but he was dangerous. His DNA was found on the officers good. But there were twenty one on armed whites who were killed I defy your audience to name one. And that's my point if a black person gets killed, especially by a white cop incomes Anderson, Cooper income, banjos, incomes, Chris Cuomo. But if a, a black guy gets killed by another black guy in, in, in Chicago as happened over this last weekend. I think we're fifty two people shot in Chicago about five or six killed no body cares. It is simply not true that blacks are under seized, but the Democrats have convinced blacks at their victims, which is why they're now pandering and talking about reparations. So the Democrats are a collection of people that are that are aggrieved about this about that, about the other as opposed to the Republican party that believes in the principle of hard, work, accountability, and personal responsibility. Since you mentioned that I love to watch Prager you videos in the happened to catch one of you recently with Candace Owens, and you talked about the myth of police brutality and black men. And you talked about you, you said that these black men are more likely to be hit by lightning. That's right. I think when recent year there were three hundred people that were injured by lightening and lightning. Of course, there's not injured you demographically equally, but assuming it did blacks are black men are about roughly three percent or so of this population. That means aroun- around twenty one black men would be injured by lightening in any given ears. So you're more likely to be injured by lightning than to be an unarmed black man killed by the police. It is a lie. And in fact, a young black man is seven or eight times more likely to be murdered than a young, white man, and the young black man will more likely be murdered by another young black man. So that's what's going on here. And the problem is the lack of fathers in the home Joey around seventy percent. The black kids today are raised are brought into the world without a father and forget, about Larry elder, and all the other conservatives talk about what Brock Obama said about a kid raised about a without a father, Obama said, a kid raving on the father is five-time, like it'd be poor nine times more likely to drop at school twenty times more likely to end up in jail. We ought to be talking about what's happened to the American family in general, was happened to the black family in particular talk about your book, Larry with me this morning. Larry elder, his book a lot like Mia father and son's journey reconciliation layer. You write a hated Mahthir really, really hated them. I hated working for him. And I hated being around him. A hated it when he walked through the front door at home, and we feared him from the moment. He pulled up in front of the house in his car while the these are pretty strong words about someone's that. Well, they are Joey, and I've got two brothers and believe me, we all felt the same way, the only reason I thought my dad wasn't a criminal because my mom. Married him. And I love my mom. And I knew that, that must be something redeeming in him. Otherwise, she wouldn't have married him, but aside from that I did not like him. He would come home. He would whip us with the belt. That was his job. My dad would come in the house, and my mother would lay out all the things and brothers, not hit done wrong, and my dad will get the belt and you'd wail against us for this that and the other and I thought it was excessive now, fast forward, I started working for him. He started little cafe. I hate it working for him because when things go wrong, he would blow up enjoy you're talking about a little diner here. So people could hear your old man, yell at you. And I it was embarrassing now in fifteen years old. I love to tell your audience. I decided that I'm going to next time I'd had yells. It'd be I'm going to say see here, pal. You in me, Manoa model. Let's have a talk about this, but I was afraid of my father. So my act of defiance was simply to walk out of the restaurant, it was a full restaurant. My dad yelled at me. I walked out no one ever defied. My father liked that he came home. He was furious. He said, why did you leave? And I said for the first time in an act with a science to my father. I got sick and tired of the way you spoke to me. My dad recently was pocket. Pull out the ten dollars a day that he paid me bald it up. Threw it at me as I lay on my bed walked out of the bedroom, and my dad, and I did not speak to each other Joey for ten years. When I say didn't speak to each other. I don't mean how about those Rams. Do you think it's going to rain? I mean nothing. Avoid him because he worked late. I graduated from high school. Then I went to college in the east coast law school in the mid west, and I would come home, of course, to visit my parents, but I would make sure that whenever was in the house, dad wasn't there. This went on for ten years now I'm twenty five years old. I just got a major job with a major law firm in Cleveland, Ohio, I passed the California bar, the Ohio bar, I should be living large, but I can't sleep and I know it has something to do with my dad, not that I ever thought we'd be friends, but I call my secretary and I said, cancel. All my appointments. I'm flying to LA going to be there for a day or two and I'm gonna come right back. I didn't tell my parents, I was coming because I want my dad to prepare for this meeting that walk into the restaurant. My dad was surprised to see me. Of course. I had two big bags. He put your back in the back. Larry's no dad, I'm gonna be here five or ten minutes. I wanna tell you something, he said, okay, wait till we close. So I set for an hour and I sit now. Larry don't tee off on the man when he sits down just tell them a few things. He's gonna call you, an ungrateful son. You can call them and SOB. At least maybe you'll be able to. Sleep. So the man said down, Joey, and I teed off for half hour, I told him everything he ever did every slight every spanking, everything after half hour, I was out of ammo. And my dad looked at me, and he said, is that it? You did speak to me for ten years because of that. And I said, yeah. He's let me tell you about my father. Now, I gotta polish Joey, I knew nothing about my dad life, other than I made his mom. Once I knew he had no brothers and sisters. I knew he had no relatives because we never got any gifts outside of that. I knew nothing about it and didn't care. I didn't even like it to my dad told me about his life over an eight hour period of time as we sat there and these two stools, I eight hours for the first time I saw my father cry. He said, Larry, you know, your last name elder, I said, yeah, he said, that's not my father's name. I said, what, what is your father's name? He said, I have no idea. You never met him never met my biological. Father, whose elder elder, was some man was in my life, the longest maybe four years alcoholic who physically abusive to me and to my mother, and when I was thirteen years old. I came home and I started quarreling with my mom's then boyfriend elder was long gone. My mom sided with the boyfriend. Threw me out of the house pet said, nah. Never to return. Thirteen year old black boy, Jim crow south Athens, Georgia, at the beginning of the great depression, never to return home. I said, what did you do that? I walked down the street. I got any job. I could ultimately I got a job as a Pullman porter in the trains. He was able to travel all around the country, which was I opening for a black boy from the south and came to L A one time and thought it was sunny. People seem less less racist, more friendly, and my dad made a mental note. Maybe I relocate to LA someday. Pearl Harbor my dad joined the marines. I said dad, why the marines he said two reasons they go with the accident is that's what I wanted and second. I love those uniforms became a marine stationed on Quam. The bomb fell my dad returned to the south Chattanooga, where he met, and married, my mom to get him a job as a cook. My dad was a staff sergeant in the marines, he cooked for all the black soldiers so he can cook for e make anything. He can look at a cake tell you what a Joey. So he goes to the south works all around tried to get a job if a shorter. Order cook and he's still a wheel higher, any inwards on the ninety four five. The answer guess line with me in this morning.

And of course, Tuesday means that we check in with congressman William Timmins for our Tuesday with Tim congressman welcome in good to hear from you this morning. Good morning. Great to be with you. All right. I gotta tell you. I'm a bit disappointed here. Because I'm I'm looking through this list of the documents that's been requested by your colleagues over in the judiciary committee. They're it's pages and pages long. Here of owning request is almost like. If you if your names on on this list, you're nobody in DC. I'm disappointed. I'm not on the list. I don't see your name on there. Either congressman everybody else's name seems to be. Seems a big fishing expedition expedition, and it's gonna be interesting couple months. I'm honestly, and you're an attorney. What are they trying to get here? What what does Jerry Nadler think he's going to accomplish by sending out an and his truly it is a fishing an expedited and a wide net. He has cast. It seems that they wanna make this next election cycle about investigations and investigations. And I think that's not a bad thing for our prospects in twenty twenty I think that the president's gonna keep working hard. And we're going to do our best to get this country on track. And let them talk about degree new deal and socialism and Medicare for all and how to bankrupt our country. And I I like I like that that conversation. I know how ends up we all know how that ends. And you're right. This is probably good news is just a little weary. You know, we've been through almost two years now of Robert Mueller's special counsel investigation. I think it's we're gonna find that he found nothing. And and so now we were under starting another investigation here, and he just kinda wears you down a bit. But but you're right. I mean from pure political standpoint and going into the twenty twenty elections congressman, you know, it's probably good. For us because the American people just truly see who the Democrats are. That's exactly right and Robert baller. Didn't find it with all of the resources. He had congress definitely not going to either. So, and you know, I think it's important. Remember the mothers investigation yielded, nothing. They were number of indictments and guilty plea, but they were completely separate and apart from the purpose of the investigation which was to determine if there was collusion with the Russian government, which was not a good point. Good reminder that all of the the indictments had nothing to do with the purpose of the investigation. Congressman Tim also your house colleagues the Democrats in the house drafting a resolution condemning anti-semitism and they plan to introduce it on the floor. We understand later in the week over some controversial comments by freshman, Representative Ilhan O'Meara, what's what's the word on Capitol Hill. This. Well, they're just a number of freshmen that loved to talk as much as possible. And I've taken that produce that I'm gonna learn the procedures of people and the policies before open my mouth, and I've been reminded often why I've taken that approach and thank you for doing that. Because I listened to some of the things that some of the your freshman colleagues say I sit here, and I scratch my head, and I think truly did your the ger mama and daddy not teach you to sit back and listen before you speak. Well, between Ilhan, Omar, Rashid, Salib and. One of my personal favorites. A oh, see they really are the gift the keeps on giving that is for sure. And as you said congressman William Timmins, that's just has to be good news for before the Ribble Republicans going into twenty twenty. Yesterday.

"Sir. Back to the morning answer with Joey Hudson ninety four five the answer. Visit our website ninety four five the answer dot com like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter at talk non four five. It's seven fifty on a Tuesday morning. And that means it's a Tuesday with Tim owns a congressman William tenants from the fourth district. Welcome in who's good to see you yesterday at lunch at first Monday was at not just a a wonderful meeting. Daily. Good morning. I thought Senator Graham did a fantastic job. I'm so excited. He's fully supporting the president on this upcoming battle. We're going to have over immigration in the wall. And I just think he's going to be a good day. And I'll tell you congressman what just really warmed my heart was to see the room. Literally packed. I mean, there was not an empty chair anywhere. It was just encouraging for me to see that many conservatives in the room supporting the Senator supporting us appointing our president, but engaged, you know, interested in what we're talking about. I saw it again last night. Congressman I went to the Greenville county GOP's meeting last night again in overflow room. Was just tells me that that people who are concerned about the direction our country's headed conservatives Republicans that that we're ready for this fight if we need to take it to that degree and to be involved in our process, and that has to be encouraging to you as well. It is Joey and I hate that. I couldn't be at the green accounting party last night. I had to come back to DC. I got a big day to day. But you're exactly right. We're fighting for the direction of our country. And the the left is really just got some crazy ideas. And I'm up here. Doing my best to keep them in check and try to get back on track. And that is a big job to keep them in check. Congressman the American people. Of course, it is a big day. A we'll be watching the present tonight the state of the union and we've been talking some this morning congressman about our expectations. What we expect the president to say did nine, and what that message is tell me what you expect to hear from the president tonight. I the going to give a very positive message of opportunity the direction of our country shifted drastically the last two years the tax reform Bill has created economic prosperity deregulation has well businesses to invest, and we just made a lot of big strive. But we really have come to an important. I it's a turning point. It is it is whether we're gonna fix emmigration system secure borders together or whether he's gonna go it alone. And I think he's going to speak of compromise. A coming together to to fix this problem in the way, it should be or allow him to just declare an emergency and secure the border unilaterally. I don't think we've got a choice anymore. I think it's either congress secure the border, the president is and I way we're going to order the talk with us in her gram yesterday. And he was on my show with me earlier this morning and any made. An interesting comment to me because you know, he said that actually the president does not have to declare an emergency that, you know, the center center Graham, seems to think that the president can just like he deploys troops down there that some money can be reallocated within the environment of the fence. And and just go that women what are your thoughts on that? Does the present even have to declare an emergency. Or can you just take some the money that's already there from the department of the fence? Has spent a lot more time with these legal issues than I have. But I do think that regardless of how done the president has the authority to do it. And I probably support in doing so should congress. Not. Yup. Now, do you think and I asked the center of the same question to, you know, we're talking about this deadline if every the fifteenth and the present said Sunday with Margaret Brennan that he was not taking off the table, you know, the idea possibly another government shutdown, but I don't know that there's going to be any different outcome. I don't know we can expect a different outcome because it appears the Democrats have have dug in. So what is the answer? Well, I think that Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer have dug in that. I think that they're blinded by their hatred of the president a lot of my freshman colleagues. And a lot of Democrats just think that this is off a bit confusing. Five point seven billion dollars for worship thirty is a drop in the bucket, and it is badly needed objectively. So if you look at it from a policy perspective, there's really not a lot of question as to what the right thing to do is going forward. But I just think there's the personalities involved that are making it really challenging to find common ground and find solution. But there is a group of legislators that have been meeting over the last week, and we'll continue to beat and hopefully they can find a path forward. But one way or the other we got us ajar border and congress just has to do its job. I think the American people are tired of congress not doing its job. And I'm doing everything I can to

No has been in operation for nearly four years located here in the upstate of South Carolina seen CMO produces competitively priced high quality manufactured. I'm with the goal of meeting. The needs for all types of shooters from competitive enthusiast who the big game hunters. In addition to Alamo in their twelve thousand square foot facility. They have the area's only indoor range, and I'm proud to say that CMO is one of our new local business sponsors hero ninety four five. The answer. You're going to be hearing a lot about this. Great local business located at eighty to eighty seven Ashra highway in bullet spring, South Carolina. I s Leslie Harold the owner to join us for few minutes today. Lesley's good to have you as part of the ninety four five the answer family. Let's talk for a minute about how you became the owner of CNC ammo to give you some prior history just to see and see Indo range was prior in law enforcement and started remanufacturing munition company from a house as a side job mas- working law enforcement. You have to have a side job to make. Meet. So that's what I chose. I enjoy to do. It is a hobby in the hobby eventually turned into a career for me. I'm so started that that business about six years ago manufacturing munition opened up a retail store and Calvin South Carolina. The Masek it location in Greer both small locations. Small clientele on the road a lot doing gun shows. Travel from Tampa, Florida to Indianapolis Indiana out west fours, Tulsa, Oklahoma house. There's lots of traveling build net business kind of building that brand. Then have the opportunity to purchase an indoor shooting range bomber formerly. It was called the fire in line in this business wasn't you know, a very popular business. So to speak not it was the only indoor range bomber county. And to this day is still the only indoor range soon allows presented with this opportunity and looked into it for the first time and in a past. They were asking too much for what they were offering and about six months later. I was reapproach the the purchase and they dramatic reduce the call. Of it. And so I looked at it in a wife about it and made a decision to purchase it and did so in October two thousand seventeen so mealy I changed the name because I wanted to customer base that the prior owner had to change dramatically, very small customer base. The places wasn't the most popular place to go to initiate be. You know, those nothing in Cherokee county, no indoor inches issues. Those lots of customers that could have that weren't there. So Millie changed the name and changed all aspects of that business in Jalan operating one from a training aspect from price in the biggest customer service. You know, when I bought the place in October two thousand seventeen was twenty seven members total when I bought the place currently and included members being a four member family, which I thought was extremely low after about a year in I think we had over three hundred memberships I think we're currently sitting about. Three hundred and fifty memberships that's not including members. That's actually memberships. Whether it's a member of Warner four, Leslie one of the objections. I sometimes hear from people as far as having guns in their home. As is they're they're just afraid of them. They're they're prayed to have them around for their kids to be in the house. You hear of accidents happening a people getting shot accidentally because someone just simply doesn't know how to handle our talk with us a minute about what you guys CNC ammo do is force firearm safety. I mean safety is huge when it comes to farms. You know, you just don't turn sixteen and start driving vehicle. You have training prior to doing so anything that he calls great bodily injury. You're going to have some type of training in respect to that. So in in our huge is mentioned earlier about accidents happen with arms will accidents going to happen. But most of these accidents can be prevented with proper training with the owner standing of of how to properly use a firearm, Leslie. Herro with me today, owner of CNC ammo in bolan springs and improv new part of the ninety four five the answer family here. You're gonna be hearing us talk a lot about CNC ammo have a wonderful facility over on Asheville highway and bullying springs, Leslie, Wednesdays a special day CNC talk with us about it. We'll every Wednesday is laid as at the SEC and no range, and that's all day embedded with that means is they get to to come in and shoot for free on Wednesday. And it's huge for that. Because if you imagine yourself and look at the whole Jon Rao of the gun industry is a very masculine dominated industry. So if you if you take a female in just enter them into that, they're gonna feel somewhat overwhelmed, basically, the same thing if we walk into a candle shop, we probably don't have as a man don't feel the most comfortable. So we want to invite him to come in to feel comfortable and just to make sure they're going to understand. We're we're going to you know, work within through the process. And better system. And whatever ways we can, you know, we offer training we offer individual training as well, as, you know, small training or advanced training as will. But when these females come in, you know, were, you know, lot of times were one on one with them if they've come into a range of never shot. We're not going to simply put them on the rains say have good day. We're going to spend that time with them with no extra charge in make sure they understand the safety aspects of shooting. So we tried to emphasize this on weekly basis on this day. Now, Liz Lucy, and c MO you guys produce custom ammo, tell us the significance of this, and why would someone need their own custom ammo? Yeah. We produced a solid. Copper self defense. Mccall the Essex p this is actually kind of two lines. It's one of the self defense in one as a hunting ground and we've done lots of testing through ballistic gelatin and lots of rounds or. Inferior for what the company advertises one thing. That's that's very important defense ammunition is the penetration. If you have over penetration in a self defense, ammo, you know, you're liable for that. But when you squeeze that trigger, you know, God forbid, you have to squeeze had triggered you're responsible for where that bullet goes word ends up. So if it exits the, you know, the perpetrator you're shooting and hit someone else you may eliminate a threat, but you just created a liability for yourself. Also, Leslie, another service that you provide is CW P classes, we all know the importance of having that CW people talk with us about the process, and and how and you have the classes we host a C P currently every other weekend, we cap it at fifteen we we have room to do more. I think it's important to have that good ratio for instructor to students, and what we offer our class is all inclusive class, it's sixty dollars for the class, which include your fingerprints, we feed you lunch today the class and afew complete that class. You actually get a one month range membership and the importance of this of the of the CW p is just because you have a firearm just because you know, how to use it doesn't mean you're legally able to carry this thing anywhere.

"It's Saturday February second, and this is weakened pulse. I'm Joey Hudson. Your host each Saturday. We gather at twelve noon to talk about places to go people to see charitable vents and everything in between right here in the upstate of South Carolina, western North Carolina and northeast Georgia. Glad to have you long on this Saturday. The Phoenix centers vision is very simple, the help people live free of the harmful of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs. I work within our community and prevention treatment and recovery from substance use disorders by offering affective enforceable services. You know, we've been having this discussion over the past few weeks about the introduction of the compassionate Care Act. Again this year by Senator Tom Davis and other supporters in the South Carolina general assembly with other states having passed similar legislation. We're set to have a pretty spirited debate. Probably over the coming months on legalization of marijuana for medical purposes. If you will now for families who have had loved ones who've experienced addiction issues, they usually. We take exception to the argument that marijuana is not a so-called gateway drug those who support legalization dismisses claim saying this not addictive joining me today in the ninety four five WGTK. Guests duty owes Tanya Fokin berry Tanya, you have a very personal story detail. Let's talk for a minute about your experience with marijuana. Well, might spirit says have my youngest son at the fifteen started these marijuana to relieve anxieties, I have three children that is my youngest my medal. One did a little bit of marijuana with some discipline. He kind of responded to that and kind of respected the fact that we didn't tolerate that in the house, and he he pretty much didn't do it. But the youngest one did not the older one didn't never mess with any of it to my daughter of didn't didn't never to marijuana and this stored when your youngest son was held. He was fifteen when he started smoking marijuana. And at what point did you realize that he was Spearman with marijuana? I knew that he was kind of having some issues at school. So we actually had gone because he had anxiety. He had gone to contras. So the first time he smoked marijuana. Don't think I knew that he had because he was trying to alleviate the anxiety. He was having after we started with the psychiatrists. He started with prescription medicine which helped a lot with the exiled. But it was a little after that that I noticed that. I would catch him smoke marijuana for parents who are listening today Tanya, and I don't have children so on don't completely understand, you know, a fifteen year old being able to buy marijuana. And that's disturbing to me that it's that readily available. How did he get this? How did he learn about smoking marijuana? I think all the kids in school really know about marijuana. They know where to get it. I think it's very easy to get. It's probably easier to get than. Anything else that there would be for them? Lots of kids sell it in school. So they can kind of get it for free. But I think they're I it was always kind of amazing to me. But that's what my kids would always say the easiest thing to get. Let's talk about Thomas story because a like so many stories that we hear started when he was fifteen and Cup having issues. He would get better and seem to have control over it. And then something would happen. And it would get worse. I mean, you guys tried different things. He he had rehab at one point, right? Yes. He dad when way had caught him smack marijuana. We would try to discipline him. And he wasn't when he first started math smoked with friends the concern that ended up being as he was smoking it by himself. He would he actually started smoking in our attic to me a while to kind of figure out that that's what was going on. He did have a job. He really liked his job. But he decided that you know, smoke marijuana. Your little too tired to work too. Much much more fun to be higher than it was actually go to work. So he ended up losing that job kind of quitting the job because that ended up being the bigger thing is to smoke marijuana. And then is understand. There was just a real really horrible event in Thomas live is friend. Yes. So after he went to rehab the first time I will kind of back up inside before we went to the rehab because we were drug testing him. He knew that he would test positive. So he started seeking out other things that would not show up on drug tests. So of course, the kids his peers would off obviously tell him what works. So there was a spice or k to that. He actually started doing which kind of led him to that first rehab when you come out of the first we happy was doing pretty good after he came home on one of his friends that he was pretty close with and also ball from had been arrested many times, you'll find that a lot of these kids have been arrested multiple times, but because of the age of eighteen. It's it's private, and there's no I don't wanna say consequences. But you know, there's really they can get some fines and do some community service. But this friend of his had just turned eighteen and had been arrested a couple of times, and he ended up committing suicide. And it was it was very devastating

"Saturday January nineteenth this weekend. Pulse. I'm Joey Hudson. You host we gather at twelve noon, every Saturday talk about places to go people to see charitable vents and everything in between right here in the upstate of South Carolina, western North Carolina in northeast, Georgia. Glad to have you along today. Be sure and visit our website ninety four five the answer dot com like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter at talk non four five. Joining me on the ninety four five WGTK guest line. Jeffrey k Smith author of some of my favorites. Rendezvous in Dallas is assoiation of John F Kennedy. The fighting little judge live in Tom's of George C Wallace the wizard of the saddle Nathan Bedford force and one of my really big favorites. Listen to me, the brief life and enduring legacy of buddy, Holly, Jeff good to have you has been way too long. It has always good to be with joy. Yeah. Appreciate it. Last year. You graciously sent me a copy of what at the time was your newest family affair the Rosenberg espionage case. Sorry, took me so long to to get around to reading it by gotta say once again, you nailed it. This is the story wasn't too familiar with it. But you brought it to life is the real life spy story. Tell us about what it really is a real life spy story. And this warned that really polarized America in the early nineteen fifty and as well as much of the world, and it really tore a family of Sunder, the testimony of a brother and a sister in law against I sister and brother went to prison and the sister was ultimately executed people often forget that the fear of communism so-called, red minutes. So in the nineteen fifties. Was akin to the fears that we have today of radical Islamic terrorism. And you know, I it was some somewhat Tom Lee. I guess you could say, and again, this book was initially published a last January, but but the last couple of years we've had all this talk of of Russia and Russian collusion than the interference of a foreign government within our political system. You know back when this story unfolded is a similar atmosphere. All you know, we had government employees having to sign loyalty of we had the passage of the Smith act, which established criminal penalties for persons advocating, the overthrow the American government. We had congressional committees investigating any suspicion of communist activity, and as you mentioned this story has literally brother testifying against his sister who ultimately received the death penalty because of it when you were writing this in researching this did you have in mind that that the the factor drawl any. Correlations between some of the discussions that. We're having now on a possible Russian on influence in our lectures, and our government when you wrote this. Yes. I think there's certain parallels. And of course, as you. And I both know history tends to repeat itself. The, you know, read minutes really began in August, nineteen forty nine when the Soviet Union detonated their first atomic bomb. Well, ahead of the time train predicted by the American military intelligence experts and that really triggered the fear of Soviet subversion. And really precipitated the red scare and it also occurred during the backdrop of the Korean war when communist North Korea invaded democratic South Korea. Ultimately, nearly two million people were killed in that war and leading thirty six thousand Americans. So the climate was very right for perhaps fear trumping reason during the red scare. Now, you point out that the Rosenbergs were the only defendants who were sentenced to death one. You think that was the case? Well, I think that the federal government, namely, the Justice department wanted to send a message to anyone who potentially might have been a spy for the Soviet Union or Wisconsin inviting becoming a spy for the union. You know, the Rosenbergs were the only two people ever executed for espionage at a time. When United States was not at war and Ethel Rosenberg was only the second woman in history to have been fake security by the federal government. I having been married Surat who was part of the conspiracy disseminate ABRAHAM LINCOLN. So, you know, obviously like you always do a tremendous amount of research when you're writing these books was there a political role in this? I mean were the Rosenbergs guilty. Well, that's a lot of what I leave for the for the reader to to to think about in the contemplate themselves a lot of questions that are brought to mind by this book number one where the Rosenbergs guilty. The answer is Julius Rosenberg was most certainly guilty Ethel Rosenberg perhaps was guilty by sociation without being directly aspire self. You know, the second question did their alleged crimes warrant punishment by the death penalty? One can argue that either way how much of a role politics play in this apparently a significant amount. How much of this was a government sanctioned frame up, and how much of the trial testimony was perjured certainly bay. The green glass the brother of Ethel Rosenberg as well as wife offered perjured testimony. And there's some. They were coerced by the prosecution, and so yeah. Well, you can just see how something under that climate how it could have gotten so out of hand and politics is very strange at times. So wonderful job is always a truly when I again, I wasn't that for millier with this story. But once I started it, I literally could not put it down. And as you know, I'd had the book for about a year and just had not gotten around to it. But when I read it, and then I reached out to we gotta talk about it because it's a great book. And I always enjoy reading what you write on our ninety four five WGTK guests lawn today. Jeffrey case myth, author of many books and local physician here in the upstate of South Carolina. You've you work on another one as you always are. So let's let's kind of tease this. This next book. This can be coming up soon in of course, we'll visit on it as well. Yes. This will be my fifteenth book in bringing history alive series, and it's actually in publication right now. And we'll be available very soon, and it's entitled prelude to war the presidency of James Buchanan, and as many may remember cannon was the fifteenth, president United States who preceded ABRAHAM LINCOLN, and historically he has been viewed as the most ineffective president in numerous historical polls. And I went into this book with a question. Okay. Was he really that bad of a president or the disadvantage or misfortune of being one of the book ends to a mortar? Abraham lincoln. And I think the readers will find the answer that question some of both. Yup. Jeffrey case Mitha, tell us how if a listener would like to purchase, particularly the family affair the Rosenberg espionage case. But any of your books was the easiest way for them to buy them. Really to route. They are available on Amazon dot com and Barnes and noble dot com or people can go directly to my website, which is WWW dot new frontier publications dot net.

"Guess what day? It is be a pop quiz on Wednesday, picking them. Now. Wednesday stays great day. It's the most anticipated hour of the day is here. Welcome to upstate live with Joey Hudson, your source for the big trending topics and the stories that are about default through the cracks combined with great guests and free wheeling audience participation buckle up. It could get rough eights upstate live on ninety four five WGTK the answer to President Donald Trump postponed. His state of the union speech. According to house speaker Nancy Pelosi, that's exactly what should happen and allow or speaker over to the White House today miss Pelosi site security concerns and suggest the present wait until the partial government shutdown in before coming over to Capitol Hill address joint session of congress. I've got an idea Madam speaker if you're so concerned about security why not just give the president of money needs to build the wall. So we can all feel safe. Most observers of yesterday's testimony of William bar in front of Senator Lindsey grants. Senate. Share committee agreed that he fared pretty well, Fox News reporting that Mr. bar emerged without a scratch grape or bruising knowledge in yesterday's calm, respectful atmosphere was totally different from what they saw during the Brett Cavanaugh hearings on more on that in just a minute next week January twenty second voters in the state Senate district seat six that the that's the seat that William Tim's bake aided on being elected to represent the fourth congressional district. They'll cast her vote in a special election to fill the remainder of his term there. Three candidates councilwoman. Amy, Riber Doyle, Representative Dwight losses and businessman Jeffrey stringer outta ask. All three candidates jomie for few minutes this week on to talk about why they should win your vote in this special election. We're going gonna start that today. Jeffrey stringer is a native of north Greenville county is raised in the Blue Ridge community after graduating from Blue Ridge high school earned his degree in international studies from the universe. The of South Carolina, and while in college became very involved in Republican campaigns and as worked behind the scenes to help elect Republicans at all levels of government, Jeffrey and his wife Elise. Tucson Stendhal and Jones at least serves as the pastor of redeemer Lutheran church in gritter Jeffrey, thank you for taking a few minutes. We after need to be with us. Thank you, Joe. If you're having since you have been involved behind the scenes, so to speak helping other candidates all these years, how does it filled anoth- at your name's going to actually be on the ballot on January twenty second. If a lot different it's been an eye opening experience. When you're handling a campaign behind the scenes, you don't get to hear lots of things that are on the front line and talking to different voters while have been trying to get my name out. There has been a very much eye opening experience, you really get a good feel of what the issues are how they're feeling it their everyday life. How how the government is affecting them. And how they would rather have the government stay out of their lives rather than rather than the as involved as they are. Now, I'll think that's probably an overall feeling we all share that in this case less is more. So just this week Jeffrey governor, Henry master released his executive budget with an emphasis on education tax relief and public safety. Obviously the legislature muss put their final approval on this. If successful in this special election, you'll eventually cast a vote on what you believe should be the state's spending priorities talk with us for a minute about the state budget. And what you believe those priorities should be obviously right now, we do need to make education a priority. The school systems are struggling and a lot of it is because teachers are worried about testing testing testing of the students, and this is in the public school system. They're worried about all the administrative red tape they need freedom to actually teach there the children in their classrooms rather than having to worry about you know, what is what is the next thing. That's coming down from new administration. I do believe that the teachers in our state should receive a pay increase, and we need that not only to attract new teachers, but also to retain the teachers that we have I've actually heard. To because of the class size. There have been some teachers that have said I would rather have a smaller class where I can focus on the students to rather than have have a pain crease right now looking at the budget, and we have this big reserve. I don't quite understand. Why? They have just now addressed this issue as far as education goes, I know that just throwing money at the problems not gonna help we're twenty four th in the nation in student funding yet we're fiftieth in in the results. Sure firm education. So yes, we do need to pay the teachers more. Yes that surplus will help but at the same time we need to really rethink what we're doing in the classrooms. I think that school choice is a big. Is a big thing that will actually help competition on the public school side. I'm in favor of school choice, and you know, about eight years ago. There was a well written Bill that failed getting through the house by one vote. And actually Republicans were the ones that did not vote for that Bill that the died in the house, and it was a well written Bill. It was sponsored by some local politicians that were very much in support of school choice. But you look back in if something like that could have made it through eight years ago, it could have potentially affected where our public school system is now in regards to to our our testing to where we're are standing in the nation. We wouldn't be behind Mississippi. Right. Yeah. I gotcha. There yet. Let's move on. We we there lot of important issues. Of course that our state is facing. Just this week. Senator Tom Davis introduced a compassionate Care Act. He's a Republican Beaufort. This was a co sponsored in the house by Representative Peter McCoy, Senator Davis says this is about doctors and patients deciding what's in the patient's best interest. Not politicians not law enforcement. You have a personal story. Here you have a personal interest. I in a child talk with us a little bit about this whole issue. And it's gonna be a big issue this legislative session of legalizing medical marijuana. Whatever you wanna call it talk with how this affects your household. Well, my oldest son Tyndall was my wife actually went into labor is seventeen weeks with with him. And by the grace of God and him working through doctors. They were able to stop the labor in save both his life and my wife's live too because they said that there was a fifty percent chance that she may have infection. And it could not only be her life, but that both of their lives. So she went into premature labor. They were able to stop it. She was on bed rest for four months in the hospital. Our son was born early. He was born at thirty one weeks and spent some time in the intensive care unit came home, you know, we thought we had a very healthy child at and we did he was doing well. And then about when he was three years old we discovered that. He was having seizures called absence seizures, basically, we thought he was Spacey, and he was just had these blank stares. But in reality he was having seizures that were actually affecting affecting his brain. So fortunately, we have good doctors. And there are some medications out there to help control the seizures. But there has been research done that the medicinal cannabis in the way, they extract the oils. Is very effective in keeping those seizures at bay. He's maxed out on some of these medicines. So, you know, we're as he grows the potential is he could have more breakthrough seizures we've met parents that have children that were having ten seizures a day. They actually moved out of state to states where medicinal marijuana was legal, and they were recommended that treatment by their doctors. And they had kids the head tin seizures a day. And then they were, you know, going down to like three Caesar three seizures a month while so it isn't affective treatment for not only that. But my father has Parkinson's disease is been shown to be effective treatment for Parkinson's disease for cancer patients who need to keep up strength through continuing to eat getting protein in their system while they're doing chemotherapy radiation. You know, it it is shown that medicinal. Quality can help the nausea where they can continue to eat and keep their strength. And they have a better chance of beating that cancer. If they if they can do that. So I am in favor of the Bill the way it is written is a very conservative Bill compared to other states, and it is going to be very regulated. I'm not on board with recreational marijuana. I just want to make that clear. I mean, this is a completely different ballgame. And I believe that if it is well regulated. If if Lohan forcement is onboard there have been some concessions made in this year's Bill to help fund law enforcement and help actually education drug education for students. So I think the way the Bill is written is very very good for the state of South Carolina, and is also not something that could be misconstrued as we're bringing in recreational marijuana likes them. Other stage done. So so you would be in favor of the Bill as Senator Tom Davis introduced just as wing ES as written. I'm in favor of that Bill, and we just have just a this time goes by quickly Jeffrey so have just a few minutes left. Here's I want to kind of wrap a couple of questions together. Here roads infrastructure. You know, do we have the money that we need Greenville county is is the wealthiest county in the state, we we're sending a lot of tax dollars to Columbia that are being sent to other counties talk with us a little about do. We have the money that we need for our roads and infrastructure. We raised our gas tax just recently and is better way for us to to to distribute the money more equitably, I think that we do have the money now, especially with with the gas tax increase the usage tax increase that we had. You know, we we were operating under nineteen eighty-seven numbers when we increased that a couple years ago. So so we should now have the money that we need to keep our infrastructure up to date and repair where the repairs need to be made. Now as a county, we should get our fair share. I think we should get our fair share. But we also have to think, you know, we have a lot of. You know, we have a lot of trucks going from Greenville to Charleston to the poor things like that. So we also need those, you know, those roads that take state funds to maintain to be kept up as well. So while we need to keep our fair share. I think there does need to be some some of that money going towards other parts of the state that directly affect Greenville county with me today Jeffrey stringer, he's a candidate in the special election for Senate seat six in Greenville county, Jeffrey, take a minute just to to tell our listeners while they should be casting their vote for you January twenty second. I thought long and hard about running for this seat. And I've wanted to get my name in and as an elected official as a candidate for years. I feel like I have a lot to give back to the community. I am a very conservative candidate. I'm pro-life. I'm pro second amendment. I'm very fiscally conservative. I think that we need to look at spending before we take a look at increasing any kind of tax. I'm very much antitax would very much rather see fees or taxes associated with with usage rather than just across the board. I feel that what I bring is a free spur fresh perspective. My other two opponents are both elected officials. They've been elected officials for a long time that they they have their own perspective. But for me, I'm a very conservative voter. I have some different new ideas, and how we can fix an address some of the issues in our state, whether it be education, or whether it be the pension crisis in those are the reasons that I feel like I am the best candidate to take my voice to Columbia for Senate district six. Yeah. Jeffrey, thank you again for being with us and spending a few minutes of you with us. Thank you so much sure. And plan to vote next week January the twenty second special election Senate district number six in Greenville county. So should President Donald Trump postpone, his state of the union speech? That's what house speaker Nancy Pelosi. Ask him in a letter to White House today. We're in. Talk about that in just a few minutes. Eight seven seven two three five nine four zero five year.

"I I remember coming out of Clemson really didn't know much about, you know, who's going to be my agent, I made a I bought was a wise decision with the representation of what's going to happen in my next career. And and that was a hard that was a hard lesson that I had to learn. But but once season was football was over one of the things that I did. And certainly my bride ally Loretta made a big difference when I retired from football. One of the question was we're we're gonna make a home. And you know, I wanted to move to New York, and she she made the wise decision that we're going to move back to Clemson. I was gonna have chance go back to. School. But I was going to we're gonna move back. Clemson because that's where most people love me the most. Yeah. And and it and it helped me to make that transition from the applause from the crowd because one of the things that you can't get used to is that once your career is over the applause go silent while and one of one of the hardest thing for athletes, especially guys like that played at Clemson where the fan base is amazing, and you got from eighty five eighty thousand people whatever. And and and those people are just great, and it's just a great group of people to be around. But once that applause, go silent, you gonna need other people that love you the most they help you to make that transition back into what what I would call. A world where your second half of your career starts, and that's the most important career. Sure. Yeah. Perry you have done quite well after your football Correa. Very successful, speaking career, motivational speaking, and you you're still helping people you're you're helping change people's lives you help raise money for ministries and other nonprofits is as you're asked to speak at various functions. But it all leads back to Clemson because that's why people still won't to hear Perry Tuttle because of your connection with Clemson. And how does it make you feel to know that that it still goes back to Clemson because of that catch and your wonderful career some thirty plus years ago? Yeah, I think that's a great question. You know, one of the things that I've I don't know if you remember receiver name Jerry Butler shorter, but his senior when I was a freshman and Jerry gave me some good advice. And and he says he's a period, I want you to stay this. When I was a freshman. He says when hip paid member asked you to go out for dinner go, and you get to know people that are older smarter. And and they they wanna help you, and they wanna be kind to you. And that's what I did my four years at Clemson. So whenever games were over or during the during the summer, I spent most of my time spending working with members of if Tate, and they made it easier for me to come out of football. And but but but the other thing is is is that everybody is gonna make the state and one of the things, you know, I had my goals, and I had my dreams coming out full ball. And I realized early on that, you know, the people who hadn't made any mistakes or the people that really has constantly worked for other people. And I wanted to work for myself. I wanted to. Be entrepreneur. And so it gave me an opportunity to come back to Clemson. And I failed at a couple of things. But today, you know, find myself because of Clemson, and because of the brand of tiger, Paul. I have stay close. I've tried my hardest to be a great embassador for Clemson the city of Clemson university the football program, and you know, they're guys they're people like coach for Jeff Davis. You know, Bill Smith, and those guys has helped me along the way Neo Cameron was a big help to me. And and is it it's made. I mean things haven't gone perfectly. But, but I can just tell you other than my face and Kreis Clemson has probably been one of the major parts of my life that has made things..

"The observation that you and your nineteen Eighty-one team. Maybe for the first time made it okay for a small school in Clemson, South Carolina, small southern town to think big just like like, you said I mean back then you didn't think about Clemson as being a football powerhouse. And Jane made the observation that you may. Made it. Okay. Your team made it okay for Clemson. And Clemson fans to start believing that they were national champions, and basically opened the door for these thirty plus years later for coach Sweeney to lead his team to a national title, and maybe another title tonight. Probably correct. I mean, certainly if you've never been there before it's always hard to get in the first time, then then maybe trying to repeat, but all of them are hard. I'm terribly hard for anybody to play for a national championship. And and you know, we we wishing the best luck in their game. And what they're gonna do. And tonight hope that they come with winter. They got a lot of work, of course. But you know, it can be done. And and we look forward to watch it. And I think probably eighty one team did. Do some things to make make some things possible here today. Yep. Coach four in just a few hours. Of course, the Tigers will be taking the fill to once again be facing the crimson tide. You've been in that situation in these big games. What is coach Dabo Sweeney doing right now? What's he doing with his players to prepare for tonight's game? They've done everything they can do at this day. There's nothing you can do now that worry about what's going to happen. Once you start playing. That's the pair that have we have plenty of time to practice and go see you game plan and do everything that is necessary to get your team play the very best. They can play. You don't expect any anyone either team to play bad than they expect both of them be fully motivated and the wa- once in a lifetime opportunity so both motives are gonna play hard. So, you know, all you can do right now next year, they all get on the bus and get them get to the stadium, right? Day coach, Danny Ford coats. What has changed in coaching since you were calling the plays back in the eighties today. Well, you know, that's the one about a lot more than than we did back in eighties. There was no one though in all this back then on now, and they're probably a little bit more gifted at at quarterbacks in receiving because all these passing leagues they have in the summer. They been a lot of time in catch the football. So I would think that that the throwing the football biggest part that more and more changes as far as you know, how hard you work in the white problems. And and they that I would say that they got a lot more nutritionist, and they know more about the correct food than we did back in our day. And you know, we had we had a cafeteria, and they said what they said, you know, now, they got all these supplements and everything else, but I mean, it's got to be a little bit more scientific than it was. Back at day understand that coach Ford after you left Arkansas you came back to Clemson. And you've called it home ever since what's special about Clemson, South Carolina to Danny Ford. Where most of my family was was was raised here. You know, and and they have been here most of their lives and most of my friends were were in here in South Carolina. I spent more time and and here at my lifetime that age and than anywhere else. So I you know, we had to farm here. And it was part of Dale with Clemson. And and certainly enjoy it and it still enjoy it to the day. So, you know, the reason we came back here. It's because of her friends and our families relationship with other people, sure. Yeah. Other than winning the national championship and the other just the huge success that you enjoyed while at Clemson. What's one of your fondest memories of that of that era? Most of most is most important. It would be the players. You know, you remember them feel call today and still see some of them had a bunch of Colin which is happy new year merry Christmas. And all this kind of thing..

They intimidate not only, you know, with happened back at home in Clemson on campus with our friends, and they're they're classmates, but also thinking about, you know, their families are coming to watch them Ryan west coast, and it's an incredible scene as a credible feeling and to most people surprise a really really nervous about just the first play. What's the? A first place going to feel like and be like and and once the first place, especially whether you own defensive offense. And whoever gets the corn tossed will give the the advantage of. Okay, now, it's just a regular game. So basically after that I play you kinda settle in. And you just kind of get into the game, then and you kind of forget that the crowds even there. Right. You forget about your parents forget about the, you know, the whole crowd and knowing that even though they know that it's a big game. In every snap matters. It becomes a game. It becomes what you've been prepared for. And and after the first hit after the first cats, the I throw the first tackle. Now you start to settle in on. What have we been practiced to do and the playbook the playbook now comes into play of? Okay. This is just a regular game. Let's go play it right back in January of nine.

And and why that's the invitation where, you know, college players get you invite certain all star games, and I was invited to the hula bowl and about three about two or three days into I was actually on the beach in a why and and and and by the way, I don't think very few black guys need to be laying on the beach, by the way.

If you remember Mark zero German at the time was playing who's just finishing his career with Southern Cal. And how out that I was on a cover, Marcus. I was laying down, and he took that magazine and threw it on my chest. And what he said to me, what do said to me was you know, he's so used to uncover Sports Illustrated. Right. And but he said a country bunking like you total on the cover Sports Illustrated. I saw I saw this picture. Right. And of course, that was back in the day when you didn't have any cell phone. So it wasn't where I can just pick up the cell phone. Call my mom or my family, or so I I got up and scream, and I wouldn't run into my hotel room and picked up the phone call collect to my mom and soon as she picked up, right? She started screaming, I sorted screaming. We was because they knew before I did. Oh, yeah. And it was but that's how found out. Yeah..
