"The asphalt gets up to 150 degrees in the summer. It's flat, and there's no drainage, so it flash floods. So these units gonna go up in about half an hour each on be sheltering people the same day that we arrive on site to get people up out of these tents and into something that is safe and also dignified. Yeah, they spoke with Kay I CBS Austin Patrick dealer. He's the pallet business manager. He says. Each pop up shelter has heat A C. Electricity. It could be built in a matter of minutes and very cool. The units go up in about a half hour each sheltering people, though the very same day they arrived on the site. I love this. Now. They say the fund raising to build 200 portable homes, which will service traditional homes, and it's going to be privately funded $2 million Capital campaign. They're trying to fill that out. And the only reason that this group is able to do this. The only reason that this group is able to put so many people into Ah, tiny home shelter it there at the Esperanza community is because the city of Austin has nothing to do with this. The city of Austin couldn't do this. If they were even part of it. It would never even get off the ground. And again. This is a $2 Million Capital campaign. What is it? What we paid for that first hotel, which I think we pay seven million? Yeah, we paid seven million. I think it was us Four people staying there. Yeah, yeah. This is very cool. They offer two of these little structures. One is 64 square feet, the other one's 100 square feet. It's enough for someone to, you know, be able to stretch out at night and sleep and then I guess, you know, put their cod or sleeping bag up during the day, and they've got bad in there, man. It's like I saw the inside of it's nice, and it's Zagreb play. They could lock the doors when they keep so their stuff is not stolen. Give a little dignity so little cottage it is and air conditioned, heated. Very, very efficient. They're designed to last about 10 years. Esperanza, by the way, Translation means hope I am I right about that. Hope, hope so. There you go. That's kind of cool. But you're right was that is that the same location that was camp rat there for a while that you know the space that Governor Greg Abbott provided. I think it is the very same location. And think about that they're doing there. This group has done more for the homeless in Austin, Texas, then this city council has done in decades. It's his example What Alan Graham's been able to do with with his facility over there, and, yeah, it's much more efficient. It's gonna happen a lot faster. This is great and a hell of a lot cheaper. It's great. Yeah, it really is not the most ideal situation for any human being. But it sure is a whole lot safer and healthier than you. No living under a bridge. We had another tent fire. Yesterday morning under I 35 I think it was at 35 2 90 or something like that. Another fire. You know, someone probably had a fire lit in their tent trying to stay warm or whatever the deal, Wasps. Yeah, you know, come on that that is far from ideal. Is this ideal for a permanent situation? No, no, but it's It's about 99%. They're good God, it takes some safe and warm and dry and and healthy, clean. It's called the other one's fun. Look that up real quick, the other one's foundation and has been you know, they've been on site since August, providing services for those living there on the kind of help do some community building activities. You know the folks, they're out there, The people that are living there the folks that live there are actually helping us, you know, set these homes up and what's their goal? I mean, Well, the goal was to get people out of the elements. They say, sometimes the temperature out there on that asphalt where they have tents set up on pallets. You know, get to be about 150 degrees is terrible. The other one's foundation. I would assume there's a donation button on their Web site, right? Yeah, and yeah, it is. Let's see, it's two found. Dot or g'kar that zoo strange, but but anyway, yeah, If you just Google the other one's foundation, they are a non profit that provides extremely low bearer barrier employment case management and humanitarian aid to people experiencing homelessness in Austin, Texas, you go, so check it out. Yeah. I mean, I love this concept. Uh, I don't know what the city thinks they're doing buying these hotels that the net Now they're having to retrofit to make work with millions and millions and millions of dollars were $2 million for this project is gonna house and your people. I think the City Council's looking ahead. You know, they keep on restricting businesses. They wanted to go to 25% capacity of these restaurants. We may have. We may have a lot more homeless people in our kill homeless community very soon, as result of the City Council's action, See, this is gonna be a lot of We're appealing to the homeless as well, because they can have their own little space versus you know it. I assume at those homeless hotels, they might have to double up with somebody else. And you know this is this would be a lot more appealing to me. That's for sure. I got you, man. Listen a little place. It is 6 24. You could jump in here at 51283605 90. Yeah, the state run homeless camp there in Southeast Austin. It's getting ah, Syria's of new tiny homes. The other one's teaming up with the Seattle based company to get him all built and Donald Montgomery lives in the camp. He tells Kay Xia the tiny homes they're huge upgrade from just, you know, a flimsy tent. It preserves human dignity. It helps keep the mess down. It's just a very much a win win. I believe the plan is to construct 202 100 of these tiny homes for the camps. Residents. It's estimated about 150. People currently live at that state camp. Yeah, that's Esperanza. I think that's great man. How do you to you? And once again Mayor Adler Gracchus are stay the hell away from this man. You guys would just screw it up. Seems everything you touch. You just screw up. We already gave you $80 million to deal with the homeless. But yet the problem just seems to get worse and get bigger. Yeah, it's the fund. What are we going to see a return on our investment in saving lives and giving them some dignity on our streets? I don't know It's hard. It's hard to think it's gonna happen when all we see is a problem that's getting worse. But This would change. This would change something for somebody overnight. Very fast and again. They get these things up in about a half hour. I think they must be kind of prefab to preach constructed in a warehouse somewhere, and then you know, it's easier to set up right. But, yeah, they're actually using the folks that live there to set him up. I think that is also very nice. You were listening to the best of Todd and don on news, radio, K O B. J.

"Right, So now you're up to date on some of the some of the big stories of the day. We'd love to get your reaction at 51283605 90. Get traffic and weather straight ahead and the rush Update Coming up at 609. The Austin Independent School District is pushing ahead with in person learning set to start Monday, October, the fifth and the union president for a SD employees. You said last night that hundreds of teachers they may not show up at all. During a virtual event last night education Austin gathered with teachers and parents and voice their concerns and questions about returning to in person learning. Teachers are committed more concerned. We have human beings and we're worried about our own families is what one kindergarten teacher told told that meeting a clear rudder, telling Kay Xia news about this and Apparently Kim Serifis, the teachers union president, says 850 teachers are prepared not to turn toe work. Are they paying attention to the numbers? I'm wondering, Are they are they are they choosing not to stay in denial and just stand there? Stand their ground. But I don't know what the personal situation is. They may have a weakened immune system or live with someone. I have relatives there taking care of. But he says about 850 or prepared not to return to work, but added that the union was working together with the district superintendent, and they hope to have a plan. At least some some steps to address. You know, maybe Monday and Tuesday. The district is committed to staying engaged with us on on a daily basis. So I'm not quite sure what they want. Well, Kin Serifis once all teachers working from home Until we have AH, vaccine, I guess now. Campus doors will be open to students at 25% capacity Monday for two weeks, and the superintendent said the district fell 5000 students short of their projected enrollment, which means as of now, There are enough teachers for in person students. By definition. We're overstaffed, she says. We have more teachers than the number of students we have. So they're prepared as of right now, But if 850 don't show up, it could be. You know, it could put the district in a pickle. I guess we're good. Yeah, You could jump in here on this, especially if your teacher we'd love to hear your reaction. 51283605 90 Todd and don show.

"At this time. America's listening to Fox News. NewsRadio Ko BJ I'm Patrick Osborne and topping Austin's news. Also, public health reported earlier this week, an apparent flattening out of Travis County's number of new hospitalized Cove in patients. And, according to Mayor Steve Adler, the latest UT model indicates that trend may be legitimate but not guaranteed. If this Israel if we have the median Who would show us basically, you know, leveling off at this point in time, But other warrants were the very beginning of this possible recovery. And we won't know for sure how consistent that trend will actually be for another 2 to 3 weeks, which should reflect our current behavior is right now. Boston Public Health plans to have a New cove in 19 tests. I'd open up on Monday and flew a villa at the football stadium. Testing will be performed from 8 a.m. to noon Monday through Saturday, and Austin. Public Health expects to be able to test about 300 people daily. And the Hays School district out with its plan for the new year, The first day of class won't begin until September 8th, the day after Labor Day, and for the three weeks that follow all classes will be online. But after that parents will get the choice of whether or not they want their kids to return to campus. And this afternoon. Lots of Sun. Hi 99 degrees. I'm Patrick Osborne. Get Austin News on demand at news radio k LBJ dot com. Market there, live local and they're talking about the stories that matter to you Share your opinions with Marc Melinda at 51283605 90 Now. Here are Mark and Melinda. How you doing, Melinda? Doing well, happy Friday to you. How are you? I'm great. Thank you. Yesterday at this time, Melinda and I were talking about The near panic situation that some parents might be feeling getting slammed with the news that the kids were going to be starting this school year at home Online all the time, and some of the Austin TV stations have done a very good job of it. Following up on that reaching out to teachers reaching out to parents. And what do you think? How are you going to manage this? Yes. Yes. Kay Xia News. 36 is one of those. They talked with a single mother of three and hers. Your young They're all elementary age. Yeah, And she is ah, another that works in the restaurant industry. So trying to do the best she can, and she said, You know, one of the things that I did do with the kids being in school as I set my schedule. So that I could be off in time to pick them up because I can't afford this out of school care, right? Right? And she's representative of that group that we were talking about yesterday. The parents who have to leave home to go to their job. They can't work from home and now they're faced with this predicament. What do I do? Can I get three weeks off at work? To stay home and start the school year. In this case, Nicole McNeely is the single mom of three young kids and she talked with K e X A. N The trouble started back in the spring. When we went into lock down, she said. I couldn't even afford the Internet. At that time. She said. Yeah, we're struggling. I finally had to fess up to the teachers. We don't have Internet It hit me pretty hard, so eventually had to fess up to their teachers like love. I didn't have Internet You know, I couldn't afford after school care, so I made sure I was off work by three o'clock. I can pick them up. I took him on a bus took him home was asd got to do to help someone like me? So She is wondering what is a I s going to do to help somebody like May. Yeah, in this sense of well, we have. But Chromebooks and hot spots. There you go. Okay. Well, that may solve or help with one problem not having the Internet. How does that help with? What do I do with these kids? Why I go to work? Because I have to goto work? Yes, these air three young kids totally unsupervised all day while Mom is at work in a restaurant people who tend to have more privilege and opportunity eating mad at things. They have nothing. They don't even know nothing about. Innocent study. Why don't you just work from home? Change your schedule. Some people do not have that, as she said, privilege or opportunity to do that they do not have jobs that will allow them to convert. Too remote. Working that word privileges popping up a lot these days, isn't it? Yes. And I don't I didn't take that is negative is negative. As the connotation has been attached to privilege these these last few weeks I took it more as you do have the privilege of doing your job from home. We're not every job can be done that way. Not like. Oh, well, you're privileged. All right. Here's here's another sound by this is Nicole McNeely talking with K x A N. Now you're making me feel bad and throwing these high numbers of child deaths that me that hasn't even happened. So you know, I have to take Making her feel bad, throwing these high number of child deaths at her. She is saying, and you're making it. To me feel like I'm willing to risk my child's health. Over providing for them financially. You're putting me in this thing you're throwing out all of these? No. These high numbers of kids dying when we haven't had that actually happening, too. Mark that true R Thio reinforce that That is a real thing That could happen, she saying. And so you're making me think that by sending my kid or wanting to send my kid to school, I'm sending them off to their death. And that was earlier this week when our Austin Health Authority Dr Marcus Scott, said 1370 kids could die if we put him in the classroom and up to 10,000 teachers could die. If we have everybody go back to school in the classroom, so I get where she where she's coming up with that she heard that it was pounded out through the news all week earlier this week when he made that projection You can jump in here and join us with your thoughts. 51283605 90. You heard her. Ask the question. What is the Austin School district going to do for me and others who were in that predicament? How would you answer that for this single mother of Mom? She works at a restaurant. She can't stay home. And so right now, it looks as though she's going to be leaving her three young kids at home all day. And she wants to know what can be done for me. Yeah, And she answered a question. I'm seeing text here. Why am I spending tax dollars to help people with their kids? She said. Look, I realize the school's not baby sitters. But my kids being in school gives me the opportunity to go and work during those hours to provide for them. In other words, she's not on welfare sitting at home, right? She's working exactly. 51283605 90. Call us or text is How would you answer the single mother? She's posing the question. What is the Austin School district going to do for me? And that means the taxpayers. That's that's the real question. What are you the taxpayers going to do for me? 51283605 90. We also have another angle on this. CBS Austin His loaded located. Some parents have already gone to work trying to answer this. They're in the same boat, essentially right. They have to leave home to go to work. They can't have one or They can't have one of the parents stay home from work work from home to watch the kids, So they're putting together something called pods. Yeah, they're small pod, So it's a small group of kids that are around the same age. Basically the same grade in calling in for Someone to come and teach their kids while they're out, and some are saying OK, well, we'll rotate out the parents. They all meet in one place and they teach if they're able to do that, work it with their work so that one parent could be there at all times or some are just going ahead and saying, OK, we're going to hire certified home school teachers and One of the teachers. She offers it at their home. The parents dropped the kids off at her home. She does the learning with them. The parents pick them up. This is Nicole Romero, P. Chez, the person who is kind of heading up one of these pods. She is a certified home school teacher. I actually run in my coop. Hod my microscope out of my home. Some cool ass air groups or pods are forming with the idea of a teacher coming and doing that for them, so they're hiring the sitters, nannies. Teachers, tutors forming that community gives us options that we didn't have when we were just by ourselves. I mean, and they've even gone as far as like to put a little card together that says risk so that you can have groups of kids together. So like if the parents are not ever leaving the home they're having groceries delivered or picked up, And they're like, blow level. So all the low level kids and then you have those that Parents have to goto work, so we'll group those kind of kids together Interesting. There are a lot of families, though, that cannot find the money in the family, But at the last minute to go with this option, all right, we'll get some of your comments coming up just ahead. Here.
