And let me tell you about a little story about a coach who started out at western Kentucky as an unpaid assistant, had an NFL career, had a good college career, too. It was actually nicknamed captain comeback when he was in the NFL. Did you guys know that he was actually nicknamed captain comeback? Because only we ever do. It was just come back. That actually exhibits the three C's that always talk about that it takes to be of another brother of the week man here on uncle Vijay's corner. You gotta be cool. You gotta be calm. And you gotta be collected, man. You can't just get a head of yourself. Can't be angry. You know what I'm saying? It can't be hot yet. What does he do from there, man?

Fresh update on "kentucky" discussed on The Horse Racing Radio Network Podcast
"That Kurt Becker was doing the voice-over for that U of L business program commercial and appropriate that we heard from him to start this show because our very first topic involves the second Kentucky Derby future wager pool, which opened on Thursday with breeders cup juvenile winner forte listed as the ten to one favorite over impressive maiden winner extra anejo, who opened as the second choice at odds of 15 to one, guys, which of those two year olds do you trust most looking ahead to next year's Kentucky Derby? Timmy? I don't trust either of them. It's just so early to think that we might be staring at the winner of The Kentucky Derby and a few days after we ate turkey. You know, start with forte. He's a more seasoned or he's got 5 stars four wins, three of them grade ones, but all three of those grade one wins is the juvenile, the breeders futurity, and hopefully he wasn't favored in any of them. He was second choice in the juvenile second choice in the British security fourth choice and hopeful. He won the hopeful by three lengths. He won the security by a neck, the juvenile by one and a half. He's tested, yes. But do I necessarily think that horse is going to be the horse comes the first Saturday in May. Maybe he will, but for right now, I think not. And the external, very impressive, one in that debut by 9 athletes for Steve, and the whole team, the Steve, and the windshield people. You know, they're gushing about this, or as well, they should after that debut, but off of one start, I'm sorry, I'm not going to take it. I'm going to be very happy to think that we haven't seen the Derby winner yet. Yeah, you know, there's a reason that all of the three year olds are three to 5. And so I'm lucky enough to have one on their cyclone mischief, which I always figure. I have two. I've got Zach clone misses, and I've got one that's not on there, so I got one of all the others. And it's hard this early to be picked. The best thing about future wages in my opinion is bragging rights if you have to hit it, that you knew it before everybody else. It's really not a good play, but it's fun, it's something to talk about. But I don't think I'd be betting my bankroll on either one of these sources or any future book at this time unless I just want something to brag about later. Dale, give us the give us the skinny on your horses. Start saving our money for them. I think, you know, this is a really good horse. I'm going to run this weekend and today at Churchill with Sacramento and mischief. I think it's very talented horse. There's so many good ones out there and there's so much attrition that goes along the way that you just got to keep them all together. I mean, it's good to have something to work with. And I'm fortunate enough to, right now, I step into the forefront. Do you get excited this early for a horse, a two year old that might be on the trail next year? Or do you wait and see kind of and you know when I get excited about is the training and to build up and the facts you've got something to work with. Psych having a great piece of clay and keep trying to mold it. I mean, it may never come together, but it's good to have it. You know, I've gone into the first of the year with no one I didn't have a good piece of clay. I had nothing to mold, but it's fun to have one that you can start talking about strategizing and what to do and just giving your start getting worried about keeping them healthy and all that stuff's a lot of it's a big part of why we all do what we do. Well, I know what I'm getting you for Christmas now, Dale. Big piece of coy. Play doh. Right. We can't go wrong with Plato. That brings up a very interesting point here, guys. Dale, you talk about the future wagers being a way to kind of brag to your friends if you get it right. You can say, hey, I got that horse back in the end of November at 30 to one or whatever the case might be. We see this in all sports, right? Future wagers are a big part of it. I bet a hundred to win on the Steelers to win the division to win the AFC championship and to win the super bowl this year. I'm going to be ripping up all three of those tickets and I'm going to look like those were sucker bets. But Timmy, how do you see him? As a future wager, a sucker bet or is it a good investment? Well, I think you can rip up those steeler tickets right now. Yeah. I think it's a SAP that myself because, you know, it's like betting blind because you don't know what's going to happen down the line with these horses. And, you know, I know only of one group of people that made a bunch of money on a future, but that was the funny side people. When they bet funny side, I even forget what the odds were, but they were really high. And they cleaned up, you know, God bless them. Good for them. But for the overall, I'm thinking like, I just think it's the dumbest bet in that we have out there because it's a blind bet. You don't know what's going to happen. Then you could bet that horse today and tomorrow, you might never run again. So to me, if you're going to bed it, yeah, it's great to swing for the fences now. And you might get a huge price on one of these horses. And you know, if there's horse continues to progress, there's obviously his future bed price is going to go down and the other 5 pools. So to me, I'm keeping my money in my wallet. That's not a real gambler's bet, but it's a fun thing. And I always say in this game, when marketed all wrong, it's not about winning money in this business. It's about being right. The people that play horses don't need the money, but they need that victory lap going around telling everybody I figured out that formula. No different with future wages. You're not getting you're not getting near two eyes, I wouldn't think of actually making it to The Kentucky Derby and winning. But it's a fun thing to have out there. It gets people started talking about the Derby early and if you hit, hey, you're a smartest guy in the room. Yeah, it comes back to the core of what this game was all about to begin with, right? My horse is faster than your horse. I'm a better handicapper than you are. I got it right and you didn't. I mean, that's at the very core of what horse racing was all about when it started. That was it. And it continues that way. And it's a great point that Dale brings up there too. All right, topic number two, the fall high weight later today at aqueduct is a throwback to a time when horses routinely carried high impulse in handicap races, which are now pretty much a distant memory. So was the sport better when handicap races were a part of it and should racing consider carting more races like the fall high weight that we're going to see later today. Dale, why don't you kick it off? First of all, I love to fall highway. Always been one of my favorite races. The first greatest guy I ever wanted was a small highway thing 95 or 96. And it's always been a house always stops a special race.

"To kitten as a name of affection by which Ken Ramsay had referred to his wife early in their courtship. As for horses, mister Ramsay made no secret of the fact he wanted to win The Kentucky Derby and therefore wanted to race horses with an affinity for dirt. But kitten's joy was bred to run on grass, given that his sire was Irish champion el Prado, his damn had won on turf and his maternal grand sire fan had been a group one winner on the legendary turf courses of Europe.

The Power of State Legislatures
"Debbie and I have been talking about the power of state legislatures to address issues in particularly election issues. I mean, look at this. Look at the not just GOP dominance in all these states, but it's the degree of dominance. I'm just going to read very quickly Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, West Virginia, Wyoming. And again, those are the states in which Republicans dominate both houses, but the margins are huge. Look at Wyoming. The Senate Republicans 28. It doesn't surprise me in white. And the house. 55 to 5. 5 to 5. But look at Texas, honey, Senate, 19 to 12 House 86 to 64. So I mean, you're not talking about one seat or two seat. You're talking about decisive majority. What Republicans say in these states go? Yeah. Those.
The Last Election
"No one cracked the code explain what you mean by that. So basically, of course, what happened here is that ultimately they did have a better performance. The Democrats have every right to claim victory after what happened on Tuesday. I hate to say it, but it's true. But as you said, it was not because of abortion. It was not because of January 6th. It was not because of our democracy, election deniers. They love to throw those phrases around. And it wasn't because of president Donald J Trump. You look at some of the things here, if I wanted to go through these real quickly, just the abortion issue. I mean, let's do it. Let's take them one by one. All right, with Dobbs, right? They immediately made this the number one policy issue. Abortion abortion, there's going to be a wave of pro choice voters. That clearly did not happen. Now you have a couple of states that ultimately pass measures to enshrine abortion in their state constitution. California, Michigan, Vermont, deep blue states, obviously that was going to happen. Then you had red states Montana and Kentucky vote to shoot down pro life measures. But the interesting thing here is when you look at Kentucky, deep red state, right? It's shot down a pro life measure by 5 points. And yet on the same ballot, senator Rand Paul, one of the best in Congress, gets reelected by 24 points. How does that make sense? When those voters crossed over to vote for his pro choice abortion loving Democrat opponent, it would stand a reason that that's what would happen. Same thing in Montana. They shot down a pro life measure by 6 points. But the Republicans all dimensional hold, both of the state, congressional seats, again, wouldn't one or both of those flip on that pro choice way. Clearly what happens here is that like with the Kansas pro life measure earlier this year, these voters are absolutely single issue. They will come out, vote on abortion and go home.

Kentucky Supreme Court weighs future of abortion access
"It's a defining moment for the future of abortion rights in Kentucky as the state's highest court Here's arguments today over a sweeping abortion ban put in place by the Republican led legislature The Kentucky Supreme Court hears arguments over whether to temporarily allow clinics to perform abortions while the main case works its way through the courts University of Louisville law professor Sam markison What's at stake is really the only realistic path to allowing abortions to resume in Kentucky It's the first legal test since voters in Kentucky and three other states signaled their support for abortion rights in last week's midterm election by rejecting a ballot measure aimed at denying any constitutional protections for abortion The justices indicate that they are giving a lot of weight or even some weight to that outcome that would also bode

Election Updates for Kentucky and New Hampshire
"We're just waiting for some of these things to come in. I'm here for you. I'm here to try to monitor what's going on. We're in the gubernatorial race. If you look at the map right here, scroll over to the state there that has a gubernatorial remarks to it. It's just right now in New Hampshire right now, oh, it's only four votes in. So it's insignificant. They only have four votes in the Republican. I can't even see his name. What is it? That's a weird name. Chris Newton who is winning. Let's go up to some of the other races and look at them. Let's go up there and forget the house. Let's go to the Senate. Let's see anything that happened in Kentucky. So we got Kentucky results here and it looked like Rand Paul is ahead. There's only been about 4700 votes counted Rand Paul has 76% of the votes over Charles Booker in Kentucky. They got a long way to go in Kentucky. He's not even close. But right now we have, who is Rand Paul, we have Rand Paul winning in Kentucky. Let's go to New Hampshire up there at the top and see what New Hampshire got. A New Hampshire only 5 votes in right now. New Hampshire got 5 votes and all the votes have gone to what is that?

Biden Wants to Shut Down Coal
"Joe Biden was the best surrogate ever Republican had in the United States over the weekend as we head up the election. It's election eve. I'm Hugh Hewitt inside the beltway on November the 7th and the year of our lord 2022 and the numbers look just dreadful for Democrats and getting worse, RealClearPolitics, battle for the Senate 48 considered lockup for the Republicans 44 considered lockup for the Democrats in 8 pass ups. I don't think these are toss ups, Georgia, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire, Wisconsin, Colorado, Arizona, Nevada and Washington state. They don't consider Ohio competitive anymore in North Carolina. Those are off the map. Ron Johnson is going to win by half a dozen points. I actually had an anonymous senator senator who remained on his tummy. They're looking at 55. That would mean they get them all, and either Washington figure Colorado. That's what I assume they mean is that one of those is too big of a lift, but they get them all. Because it's just run against. And then Joe Biden went out and just helped us out. He helped us out a lot on Friday. In Pennsylvania when he announced the end of coal. I'm not just Pennsylvania, by the way. There are congressional races in Kentucky and Ohio, other places that use coal, other palaces that dig Cole for the places that chip call when he says we're shutting down all coal, what he's doing is shutting down railroad trip. I mean, just destroying the economy, cut number one, Joe Biden. In oceanside, California on Friday. From wind and solar than it is from corn oil, literally cheaper, not a joke. I was just and so are you going to accommodate that transition? I was in Massachusetts about a month ago. On the side of the largest old coal plant in America. Guess what? It costs them too much money. They can't count. No one's building new coal plants because they can't rely on it. Even if they have all the coal guaranteed for the rest of the existence of the plant, so it's going to become a wind generation. And all they're doing is you're going to save them a hell of a lot of money. I'm using the same transmission line that transmits a coal fired electric on. We're going to be shutting these plants down all across America. And having to be shutting these plants down all across America.
Kasey Funderburg: The Canceler Who Was Cancelled
"Was a sideline reporter for the university of Tennessee, volunteers, the football team. She was also a reporter for the vol network, the volunteer network. And she was very good at her job from all indications. What is she 26 years old? And she's out there, she's living her dream. She's worked all of her life, her 26 years to be a sports reporter, a sports journalist. Well, anyway, on Fridays on Friday, they announced that there was going to be a, there was going to be a basically a black out at the football game for the Halloween game. And what did that mean? While the team was wearing these dark uniforms with the dark Pfizer's and the idea was to go dark mode. Against Kentucky, very intimidating. And so anyway, some guy who likes to troll people on a social media and ESPN has been suckered by this guy, a lot of folks have been suckered by this guy, and he suggested that the Tennessee fans should blacken their faces for the dark mode game. In other words, they should go blackface. Well, Casey Thunderbird saw the tweet and she went after the guy, and she said, oh, this is disgusting. How dare you? You shouldn't be saying something like this. This is bad and she rebuked the guy and called him out. Well, it wasn't too long after that. When people started going after Casey thunderbirds, previous tweets. And they went all the way back to the year of our lord, 2013, and the year of our lord, 2014, and they discovered that Casey Thunderbird actually used racist language on her social media pages. And faster than you can say lickety split. We found out that miss Thunderbird no longer works at the university of Tennessee, her

Johnny Depp Is Not Beautiful Anymore!
"ALF back then. I go, you got to go. You got to fucking go, bro he was a junior. I was a senior. I said, you got to go. And he left. So suddenly, out of nowhere, I'm watching scorchy, and they're sooning out sitting in my living room. At the old drunk and sexy and silly, you know, how it goes. And I'm like, well, what do you want to do? Do you want to look at some baby pictures of me? I was thinking of anything I could do. Hey, look, look at these. I was bringing out baby pictures. I was bringing out, I mean, guys, I did all I could to keep I'm sorry. I did all I could to keep her interested. And we're on the couch together. I'm finally alone with Sue and eno. It's now 1980. We're no longer freshmen. We're seniors, and everybody wants Sue. And she's in my house on my couch, and she's letting me hold her against my chest and kiss her head and kiss her ear, whatever the fuck. But I didn't go further than that. Apparently, her contact lenses were bothering her, so he took them out. We put them in some kind of liquid that she had and then that didn't work. It all ended badly. But the point is, she was right there, so when I think about these kids who were talking about cheating on exams and wearing headpieces, I'm like, you idiots don't even know what you're missing, man. You're missing your old Sue Nino. What are you doing? Put the fucking hats away. Go flirt with someone. I mean, am I the only one that has memories of that kind of stuff of people just, you know, blowing your mind and having. To be with them and then actually one day they're there with you? Oh my God, I'm not going to spoil it, but we saw a picture a few weeks ago of Sue and some girl who went to high school with and, you know, they don't look the way they used to look in 1979, but neither do I, so no harm no foul, speaking of which, I'm sorry, but listen, guys, as much as I love Johnny Depp. I'm honest enough to say the music he plays with Jeff Beck is God awful. And I've been gone up against a lot of people online who have taken to call in Johnny God dad and saying, oh, he looks so beautiful. No, Johnny Depp, Johnny dep now looks like a Johnny Depp in personator. He looks awful. I don't know. You know, I don't look like I used to look when I was a kid either. So I'm allowed to be critical here. But the drinking and the drugs and the bullshit has caught up with Johnny Depp. And it shows it's like that old adage. You die what the face you deserve. And Johnny has his now. Okay, that's it. He may have been a beautiful soul. He may still be a beautiful solid spirit. I don't doubt he is. But Scott with how beautiful or handsome he is now. He doesn't. He's not. So so many pictures and imposing with relatives and Kentucky or some shit. And while that was a really cool gesture, Johnny Depp doesn't look good anymore. None of us do. You know, you can still love him. As, you know, we've allowed Pacino or old Jack Nicholson or old Warren Beatty, but stop acting like Johnny Depp still belongs on the cover of Tiger beat. And stop what this new term, God dad. What is that? You Johnny Depp fans are starting to sound like Britney Spears nuts. Who, by the way, is back on Instagram and was rolling around naked in the sand on some beach sandy vagina is back and to hell with whatever her teenage sons want. She doesn't care,

McConnell Spends Donor Money on Lisa Murkowski Over Kelly Tshibaka
"Instead of using that money towards the right pickup opportunities in Nevada and I was on and elsewhere He's spending millions in Republican donor money to defeat shabaka to get Lisa Murkowski elected these two Republicans Once a punitive Republican that would be Murkowski she's a fraud Which money can be used elsewhere And now why is he doing that Because she is a McConnell I shall do exactly what McConnell wants That's the bottom line That's all he cares about as himself Quote we request the Senate leadership fund immediately stop attack acts against Kelly shabaka and discontinue all support of senator Murkowski district 9 Republicans demanded And the resolution went on to demand Kentucky GOP leadership censure their senator from meddling in Alaska's party affairs while the minority leader abandons up for capturing the majority While he controls the Kentucky GOP see McConnell's an insider is a sleazy old school closed or insider He's locked up the Republican Party in Kentucky with a few exceptions He's locked up the Republican Party in the Senate Through special interests and money and threats because he's been around forever And he's using shabaka as a is an example to all Republicans who would dare challenge the people he wants

"If you crossing this morning you noticed that the traffic pattern has changed If you're headed northbound the right and left lane is the right left lane a mess you up here. Left lane is for seventy five. The right lane seventy one. That is my fault. I got ahead of myself on that. Well it's it's it is a. It's not confusing though. So you have to pay of your lane picked before you get on that bridge and you know where you're going or else you're gonna have a an issue because you cannot change lanes on the bridge It's much like when they were doing some of the work. I say it was one of the two seventy five bridges. They were kinda handed thing. I think it was like by kellogg. Larry like you had to be on the right side or else you couldn't get off kellogg so it's very much like that. You have to be in the right lane when you call or the lane that you need to be. When you're crossing the thing that this also means that fifty seven fifty percent complete so at least we got that going for us And it will still be working on it all the way through november. But hopefully they'll get a good ahead of schedule and get it done. You can all who can pray. We just newbridge we need. We need Some fixes in said the president came out game last week with the president being here They came to mount saint joe university last week to host a town hall He expected expressed his Commitment to fix the bridges.

You know really really cares about that bridge. So hopefully he also praised ohio. Senator rob portman in doing all the stuff that he's been doing in a bipartisan infrastructure. Bill that they're trying to pass through congress right now so you know get gave love to the other side you know. They really are trying to do this. Bipartisan manner so because it just makes sense like are a lot of infrastructure around our country. We care about our bridge but all over the place things need to be fixed. A little side neared about the that. I i mean i was little freaking out because i was going down that fc cincinnati game downtown. But the traffic wasn't that bad. Because i wasn't used to seventy five and went down seventy four so it avoided he avoided. Kat crossed the bridge. You know i don't. I don't think they'd wanna take that big heavy heavy limousine thing across the bridge. There might have been a little bit of a security risk so but it also helped with the traffic. it didn't to terrible now. Not terrible and certainly. This is an ongoing discussion. Not only for the maintenance project that will take you through. You know through november but potentially you know the further bigger discussion about what's next fingers crossed will have an answer Okay so the sad part of the Headlines today's podcast it behind.

You bringing you news today but this first one is gonna feel like you've heard it before yup governor bashir is urging vaccinations kentucky is giving about a thousand new cases of coveted every day over the course of the last week and it's all because of this delta areas so for those people who were vaccinated. That's great no remember. Vaccinations that you won't get cova. Just means it will be as bad and maybe maybe research shows won't spread. It is easily now. The governor shot stopped short of imposing. Any sort of mandate against mask mandates or the life but what he's asking is just he is urging anyone who hasn't been vaccinated to get vaccinated so he quoted scott gottlieb the fda commissioner under former president trump who said if you're not vaccinated and you've not already had kobe expect to get the delta variant and expected will make you the second she will ever be in your lifetime so it's not like it. If it's a win you will get. It is that prevalent and so Just keep that in mind. What he wants to do with the rest of us want to do is keep the state open and keep everything open schools business and otherwise and to do that. Vaccinations our biggest biggest key. So we're gonna continue on with the debbie downer to that out of the way we can talk about the fun stuff. But the prince sprints bridge..

"And welcome back to the northern kentucky. Spotlight right now. We're gonna talk a little bit about financial planning. We're joined by tom. Perez and sean chadwell of premier planning group and. tom and sean thank you guys for being here today rooms. All right i'm gonna lobby a super softball question. Tell me what a financial planner does. What are some things that we may not realize that a financial planner does he will also off. So get sean chadwell. And you're the big thing we thought with. This question is is so many people. Go straight to the thing that can fisher commercially. Probably seen at some time. You have five hundred thousand dollars a month and that's what we want to try and get people away from the are so many components to financial planning. It's not just managing money. A lot of it is you know. How do you protect yourself. How you get injured how to protect that On if something happens to your life. How do you protect that. There's a lot more other areas versus. Hey i've got half million bucks or about one hundred thousand lots you know. You haven't zero dollars if you have income. There's something for us that evaluate in talk about in trying to set you up on the right financial plan. It's not just managing go ahead. Looks like you had in the even at that point. I think a lot of what we do is helping people be consistent. you know. it's obviously different accounts in ways you can save money and so on and so forth but A lot of people just need a knowledge. Say you know every year. Make this contribution or do this. And i think there's That's that's definitely soccer that's overlooked. I think our industry marketed itself around investments in return and things like that people get stuck on that. But to shawn's aren't there's just way more to it than that piece. Obviously that's a great point that you know. A lot of people will hire a personal trainer to get more fit or we'll hire on someone to know whether it's cut their law. Whatever they're expert in and somehow we are not like that with financial planning so for those folks who have those obstacles overcome like on over. I wanna do this just yet for either one of you. What do you tell people. Yeah i think it's really taboo industry because money is you know it's not everything but it's really one of the only things that people keep track of and again with i think marketing artistry is all about you know money and how much you have and if you don't have this much or someone in blah blah blah and that's true for some firms it is irs but you know i think it's really there's no time like the present and if your you know thinking about or considering it it's at least worth talking to someone siga if it's a good fit in no making decisions on from there versus doing nothing back in a year five years or whatever it saying. I wish i would have done that or i should have done. Yeah i grew tom in one thing. We always say is if you have it started. You're the best time starts now. Yes if you have it saved or you haven't really started some sort of consistency. Today's today so you know there's no point to weigh in doesn't matter again. A lot of like thomson. It's a process and getting some good habits a lot of times to get you on right track. Let's talk about small businesses and one of the areas that you guys like to talk about a small business. 401k plan so tell us what what we need to know about that we've seen in. The industry is at least the adviser standpoints. it's typically. it's an older person industry. A lot of people like us cohorts are in their fifties or sixties in what ends avenue with small businesses is set of a 401k plan and typically the owner of the businesses. Someone's client so they're adviser sets up their plan for their business and there's certainly nothing wrong with that but what ends up happening over time is those plans are neglected to make sure that they're cost effective to make sure that their design is updated based on employees. How you know if they're adding employees if their employees wages are growing And there's also a fiduciary component to that but what we've seen is that there's a lot of changes in the 401k. Landscape is far as pricing and things like that is concerned so what a lot of companies do is when they set up these plans and they kind of forget about it. Is there in a product that's outdated and they're paying more than they should have or should be in their employees with plan. Participants really are not getting the help that they want. because you know no one's really servicing that plan in those participants so We use that as a really big focus area in air opportunity for small businesses. Where if they haven't looked at it in a while behooves to do that. The other thing that we're seeing to recently it is. There's an increased focus on fiduciary responsibility within these plans from the investment standpoint to make sure that they're performing the way that they should have you know in comparison to alternatives. And things like that. But then a lot of companies to also don't realize they him in administrative fiduciary risks. Where if they're not say depositing contributions on time in things like that. They're liable for that. A lot of companies. Don't understand that and a lot of small businesses they don't have an hr infrastructure and things where they can handle that and you know i think some people do think about it where well outsource said. What's it gonna cost me in the side of the but they also realize what they're not doing that they don't have an expert doing it in someone enter business who's not an expert is doing in. They're paying that ursa staff you know. There's a lot of components there were. We're seeing it where there's huge opportunity increase decrease the cost and lower their their liability. And so shaun for you. You know we think of 401k's when you think of benefits that's a that's certainly one of those top. Come to the top of my. But there's you guys say is welcome overlooked employer benefits. Have you discussed as well. Yes any of our clients prospects if they work at a company that offers multiple group visits ripe tom. They offer group life insurance. Maybe they offer group. Disability insurance long-term maybe a short term it. It's really reviewing those benefits in seeing. What did they have a within what they have you. Which one should they take advantage of because some of them may have cost. Some of them may be picked up by the employer. This really going through and saying hey this benefit through your group at your age. Am what you're getting at. It's a great benefit. You shouldn't take advantage of this or it's a they give you this benefit in. It may sound gray but we dive into actual details. It's something we should go. Look outside and shop around and maybe get a different provider or different option. I'm in a big when we look at in office very important is protecting your income in looking at long-term disability. So it's more likely that someone's going to have some sort of in that space in lots of employers. Have some sort of group product moon you dive into those details. They say devils in the details. It's so true with long-term group disability. So we really like to say. Hey here's your actual benefit in sometimes supplemented or having to do something to go with it because it may not be enough coverage of may not have a good definition etc so much to think about. I know you probably bringing a lot of questions in people's minds so if they're interested in getting in contact with you tell us where you're located in how is best.

"Bring them in that one when you work especially with a higher level executives What what are the things that they're looking for. And what are what are companies looking for in hiring top level executives. It's a great question. It's changing a little bit too. You know in terms of the candidates. We are seeing the past year a real movement towards wanting to do work that has meaning and purpose. And we're hearing that so often from candidates you know i have spent my pass twenty years doing this job and i really wanna find more meaning and so the the flip side on madison employers need to really think about articulating and demonstrating to employees. What their mission is and what their purposes and you don't have to be a nonprofit organization to have a mission and to have purpose you know a gallon partners. We say all the time we come to work to strengthen leadership teams and elevate the talent in our communities. That's a real mission that we get behind and feel very strongly and we're not a nonprofit organization but we still can do that important work. But i think it's important organizations to articulate bab really ensure that employees understand it so that they don't feel the need to change jobs. Sadly the buzzword right now is flexibility employed are not offering flexibility are seen employees. Not coming back you know. I've had charleena say to me. We told when coming back in may or june and employees of push back and said you wanna come back and so you know the past year has taught us that not only is remote work work well and we also. We're doing our jobs and having a lot of success and so we're seeing more organizations ever before allowing more flexibility and employees is wanted. So as can't it's are looking for. New opportunities. flexibility is the very top of their list. salaries are going up to As talent becomes harder to find companies are going to have to pay more to get that top talent and then organizations who want to retain employees they need to really assess their their salaries of their alad. Make sure that those individuals are compensated fairly and stay and speaking pretension You were mentioning a away that that businesses can retain those a- those laptop level voice through. What you guys have their partners call. Gp elevates to explain what that it's at gp elevate is a leadership development program that's really specifically designed to take high potential leaders and prepare them for executive roles and so that was a need that we saw in this market that really wasn't being specifically filled. And we're seeing that a lot of our clients and others are using the program not only to develop skills and their high potential leaders but as a retention tool to really show their top talent. Were investing in you. We want you to stay. We want you grow and be with us for the long haul.

As are you guys in. This area is one that is insular. We like to stay here. People don't like to leave. How it you know how you guys approach a job market that you know first of all has that going for it and i think is going for it but also a really robust Kind of just very indifferent. Businesses as every or every community has been northern in particular. We really run the gamut for mom and pop shops all the way up to fortune. Five hundred's yeah and that's worked really well for us because we work in a wide variety of industries whether it's nonprofit or manufacturing or sales and marketing. hr finance. it runs the gamut so for us that the market has been fantastic for that variety but from an employee perspective. Think what this is going to allow us to do is to perhaps draw even more top talent to this region. You know more employers. We talked about flexibility are allowing employees to work from anywhere. So wouldn't it be great to get more top talent here living in our market you know. Engaging with our businesses pain our taxes going to a restaurant in our wonderful arts offerings here but they can they can live here for a really reasonable salary and have a great career.

"Afternoon and welcome to the northern kentucky. Spotlight on catherine niro alongside. Jeremy schramm the marketing and communications director from the northern kentucky chamber. Jeremy we could say that it is international. Say and it is but maybe more importantly birthday in your house. Yes it's my little my little four year old. She's now a four year old. She's a abbassi four year old but she's cute international women's day of earth. Celebrate all women and actually do have a lot of great headlines coming your way coming up in just a little bit. But first and foremost we want to thank our sponsor. Cg our title sponsor and see group insulting digital sponsor making the northern kentucky. Spotlight happen Forget to those headlines. So jeremy just ahead you know there's one thing that has Maybe increase more than most during this last year of fun and this and that is our reliance on alcohol and That's what we're talking about today. Coming up just a little bit. Yeah we get to hear from one of the oldest family and spirit shops in northern kentucky. I am excited. I love cork and bottle. They always have such great selection. And it's i. I love going there because they can help. You find what you're looking for. And they have the best bourbons to sometimes. It's interesting also not just regular birds but dusty bourbons and tom naira talk about it coming up about how we kinda change what we're buying during the pandemic interesting. It's interesting trying to a little bit new. That's coming your way ahead. But we want to get you caught up on the headlines for the week here in northern kentucky. None are bigger than the covid vaccine so Right now we know. Actually these numbers came out at the end of last week so this is probably even higher this point but right now more than sixteen percent of northern kentucky of already had one shot nine point two percent are fully vaccinated against covid. Nineteen those numbers if you just compare them simply to cincinnati. They're almost fifty percent better than cincinnati And so this is really an effort by the northern kentucky health department the statewide kobe hotline kroger all of that with a regional center down the northern kentucky convention center really rolling. People through is incredibly organized. If you worry like lots people it is so easy to get in. And out of. And i'll tell you they know exactly what they're doing down there. So first and foremost the supplies still isn't reaching the demand but it's getting better. Here's the best part. Kentucky is expanding the sites so not just at the convention center for independent pharmacies. Have other places as well. They're explaining providers explaining doses so the federal government says. If you want a vaccine you will get it. We will not run out. It may take to get to it but if you want it you will be able to get it. Johnson and johnson's vaccine is a northern kentucky hours. Well it'll be distributed starting this week. That's the one shot vaccine madonna adviser. Which are two shots. A restaurants gyms in theaters are now and several other industries to about fifteen other industries. They are able to now go to sixty percent capacity. Fifty that number may increase as well And if the trend continues. I know parents are eager to hear this childcare. We'll go back to the regular groups is whatever that wasn't your place by march fifteenth. That's next month. He says certainly good news there around good news and you know we're in the one category which includes like most of northern kentucky. I know we've been getting lots of questions at the chamber. Like how you qualify. Who's qualified and you know. They have a list of the health department. He's been out their list of the generally who who's qualified and we didn't even think the chamber was qualified but we were And the and the really the way to find that is on the cdc's website they have like the breakdowns and we are in that normal Cdc's one see category And the chamber qualify because we do a a publication that's a periodical in the business journal so In the way that it works if if you do one of those functions inside that come inside your company it doesn't just mean just that person in the company means the entire company so it's like if you produce a periodical inside your company and your whole company because everyone supports that so A lot more people are qualified for onc- than you think so You know it's a good thing to kind of get out and start making a plan to get back. Aided so we can get back to normal and get get that that coveted herd immunity when we look to that and like you said you know the the supply. We don't have nearly the supply. We need for the demand. But that's gonna switch very quickly. So it's time this of start thinking about how you're gonna make the plan to get your thing and and be aware and the best the best resources the northern kentucky health department's website to find out where all those locations because they are like you said changing drastically all the time all being said it. We've been in this for a year. Now it's it's it's rough. It feel like it feels like it was just always march right. It's just career. So the governor. And the lieutenant. Governor coleman mark the anniversary in a ceremony and frankfurt. Because you know we in kentucky we've lost almost five thousand people to covid which is just it's it's dreadful really The cases are on the the good news though is the cases are on the decline to health officials are Reminding us That masters and hand washing and social distancing. You know that's all still very important. And and like i said make plans to get that vaccine. You know i. I saw that. The numbers continue to drop. We were under five hundred. I believe for a day of new cases. And that's it's still a lot. It's still way higher than we want it to be but we are solidly in the orange now in northern kentucky. So we're we're moving forward and it's not going to be much longer to keep that masking up. You only got do another month another few months. Get that vaccine. And then we're all going to be back mean the cdc released new directions for if you've been vaccinated like you can go see some if if you're visiting with a family that's been vaccinated and you've been vaccinated massacre social distance or any of that so we're getting close so close one of the great stories that has come out of the last several months. Is the cross town tip off if you're not familiar with that. It's when xavier and uc fans are going back and forth where you know a xavier fatally the thousand dollar tip and then a you see families with thousand dollar one tip and it goes back and forth. We'll the city like we wanted on this action to. This is pretty cool. They're asking you to do with tip. Challenge between dixie heights and loy not get a kit goes to dixie highs in my husband went there so i think i know where my allegiance is lock but the idea is if you are the city of earlier even if you're not take a picture of your receipt with whatever kind of big tip you wanna leave. Yeah it could be a thousand dollars or it could just be more than you would. Typically leave uploaded to the facebook page there. In the city order facebook page and the whole idea is the service industry professionals are going to get a little bit more money. This is kind of a fun back and forth thing to do so the city of erlanger kind of taking the lead on that. We'll see who comes out on top. Dixie or lloyd. Speaking of helping those restaurant employees. We've got the This brand new thing that new restaurant. It's new riff restaurant relief fund. And what they've done is they wrap or Sold some bottles of fifteen year old bourbon. Now they had eight hundred and ninety six bottles and they sold out in like two minutes like it was like turn it on and they were gone. Yeah and they were som- for for a good amount so they were able to raise a lot of money I think they will be given out one hundred thirty eight thousand two restaurant and Service industry employees on both sides of the river now. The ohio restaurant association is handling their The ohio side but the kentucky side. we've helped New roof kind of create a little warm And if you are a restaurant employee and you've been hit from the pandemic getting laid off reduced hours that kind of stuff. We want you to go apply and we're giving two hundred. Three hundred dollar grants on an northern kentucky side The website you go for that is in kyi chamber dot com slash new relief fund at that will take you right there and you can fill that out and If you know somebody's in the restaurant industry or you know somebody who owns a restaurant wants us in out to their employees. Please.

"On. It's a program called to business. We had a little bit of a budget. Leftover surplus and we asked the board. What do you want to do with this money. And mark and his peers around the table said we need to get involved with schools. Business leaders need to get engaged with schools. We have got to get these kids earlier before they get out. And so that started as a pilot initiative last year where we had twelve hundred students across the state goede businesses on wedneday tour those different career pathways that were available and now this year in in lieu of kobe. All virtual program and we've got thirteen thousand students already in the first three weeks of the of the program we're going to host it all year long and other program. We run as our workforce recovery program. And so you know kentucky we've been hit really hard by the opioid epidemic by substance use disorder in in what we find is that it really really hinders our workforce participation and so in the last eighteen months we've trained about four thousand business leaders on how to update their hr policies and practices and how to be recovery friendly and fair chance employers in the past three four months. We've recruited six thousand second chance what we like to call fair chance jobs for individuals that come out of incarceration and get them meaningfully. Engaged back into the workforce. Alaska certainly not least we have our talent pipeline management program which pulls businesses from all across the state together by regions to mark's point if really easy for us in frankfurt To look across the state and say this is what needs to be done but quite frankly the magic happens in those communities if you believe it or not. We've talked a lot about other things. Besides cove and workforce bill all. We're talking about. We talked about bourbon and bourbon but one of the really cool places that we got to go see was the theater house. It's such a great business down there and covington and an interesting one too and got to go on site and see the see the thing. So let's take a look. We do have a retail shop in covington four hundred west third street so you can stop by there and we're we're here one six on on the daily one seven through the the halloween season and We're open on saturdays as well. But beyond covington we ship all over. So we are products have been featured in things like rupaul's drag race and on disney cruise lines a universal studios cleveland cavaliers cirque du soleil We have people like just in the past week. They order for fabric of our lamaze are used for making purposes and scotland. So we'll ship lemay there. We may ship We've shipley blank guns and stage weaponry to as far as Australia so we we really ship all around the world and we while we are open to the public. We have a large I'll say institutional and business bases. Well you know it is time to start thinking about what we're all going to do. Once this pandemic is over what we're gonna go see. I know i've been thinking about that. Everybody you know in the beginning of the year is like okay. What are we going to do. This year of vacation is happening. And but here's the deal you don't have to go far to have a really cool vacation. So we learned that first hand from tore with us us northern kentucky. They've got this great idea. Visit himself on the beeline kentucky's version of the bourbon trail. And and do this safely sip responsibly. That's what they like. Say randy and teeth daniels have a way for us to visit the stops on the be safely while also learning about the history of the area and tasting some really great bergen along the way. Yeah on my my list for two two hundred seventy one get vaccinated and get on one of these tours. We're focusing on the northern kentucky. Be line and craft stiller's There are quite a number of distilleries of large and small That are both under the katie or the kentucky dissociation or the or the kentucky bourbon trail The five distilleries in northern kentucky. Our new riff a second site spirits. County distilling and then Old pogue distillery and so really. That's that's where we're beginning our focus. We're were based at another kentucky. And the ideas for us to be able to get people from point a to point b or really from point a to point b c and then back to a crite in a safe way. Our our motto is a sip responsibly. And so that's where the transportation kind of comes in and it's an certainly big focus for distilleries because they want people to be safe to. And so this is a neat way to get people from their homes to the to the northern kentucky beeline and really experience Distilleries on the be liners such great history. The northern kentucky chamber offers tough moms leadership and professional development opportunity programs like our women's initiative professional series and regional youth leader helping to retain talent in our region we offer dozens of events that qualify for sees like hr one hundred and leader cats and don't forget about leadership northern kentucky with more than fourteen hundred alumni. Who are now. The how many organizations across the region learn more anki white team dot com leadership and professional development. It's what we do. So i mean i grew up in the area and I don't know about you but you remember. The old janis twist in lithuania. I i love that place. When i was kid i used to go and get the little key for my birthday and stuff. Yeah i think we're up here. But my husband did and he has one of his very first keys and then my kids got them for years and years and years just drove by the old johnny stories. Hey yeah and so. It's and it's a great thing because of business kind of came into their and took that over. Now you're not getting toys anymore because it's not toys but it's blair technology group. They have all kinds of great technology. They've rehab computers and Do some really great stuff as far as recycling goes And we're gonna hear some more about them from when we interview them just a couple of weeks ago but the inside is a lot different so no longer. Is it filled with toys now. Filled with computers in in different electron ix with that Blair technology from so. We are a computer.

Certainly kobe is going to be the big headline for twenty twenty. But in just a couple of minutes here. We're going to be looking back at some great things that happen over the course of twenty twenty. You know a lot of podcasts. Do best off episodes at the end of the year. This is not a best of episode jerry. No because all of our guests are wonderful. People sharing great things happening in all over northern kentucky. And so just ahead.

Cg our title sponsor nc consulting as well our digital sponsor we thank you for supporting us and also for a supporting a those of you listening and watching right now for supporting us throughout the year and into twenty twenty one so as we look back at some of the wonderful guest that we've had you know it was interesting in locating back some of them some of the podcast snapshot of where we were at the time. So you know for several weeks. I know the chamber really partnered with them. Horizon community funds and tried to help a bunch of local restaurants. I know we're in the process. It's still helping them even now. Yeah yeah you know. We like to eat. We like to eat on podcasts. Eat and drink so that was really really fun. I mean that was some of our Some great great things watching the community come together and like support these restaurants and you know so much has changed since then and Here we are in in the new year. And that's where we start. We're going to start in two thousand twenty one with all this you know. I i really like this. This idea of not necessarily a best of but kinda showing all the great stuff. That still happen during really. Really turbulent time and then just there's a light at the end of the tunnel like this vaccine coming out back when you get the chance but you know so we can all be together and we're going to look at some of the stuff that we talked about in all these great things that we are going to be able to do like once we can all start getting back out in the public and i. I'm i'm super excited for for what's gonna come this year. Yeah and some of those great things that happened in in. It's hard to believe in the middle of a pandemic. New businesses were opened but there were dozens and dozens if not hundreds of new businesses that open over the course of twenty twenty and you know we focus a lot on small businesses over the course of the year but again it's the ones just opening the bit. Need that attention as well. So your opening a business in two thousand twenty you have to have a certain mindset for that and it's happened more often than you think. So that's what we're going to start back at northern kentucky spotlight guests from two thousand twenty with a new gaming venue. Indoor outdoor food hall and bar concept as well as a new look for newport on the leading. Lock the new stuff. I stop newport gaming northern kentucky's newest casino.

October before the igloos and heaters win but You can still get out there now. And it's a really great spot that you need to check out in covington. The crowd great.

Let's explain how this works because you've got individual food vendors and drinks and all that good stuff. Yes so a lot of people when they come in. They've either been walking around.

That a lot of people in covington just don't have due to the the tight homesites and the nature of covington's architecture so when you come to covington yard you walk through a shipping container. That was a one time. Use shipping container from china and we re purposed it as our entry feature as you walk in then you see the artificial turf on site and we have multiple food vendors that are available from lunch hours into the evening hours.

What blair does yes. Castle still here and fully functioning. We still can send the keys al First birthday club to come. Get your poisons and stuff but the inside is a lot different so no longer is filled with toys. It's now filled with computers in in different electron ix with that Blair technology so we are a computer refurbishing In that is you know when you when you hear refurbishing computers. You might bank of a used computer and and it scratched in an doesn't look great and it's just a you know a cheaper version new but that's not really what it is at all It's a full manufacturing facility down here and in it's actually called renewed computers now so When you hear renewed it doesn't have the bit operations of of a used so when when we sell it. It's only tested Fully cleaned it. Look brand new out of a professionally atkins boss and in if you didn't know it was a used computer. Knew it and you wouldn't have any idea the quiz it looks brain you know and i know we had just been talking about the fact that you know with kids and students of all ages going online for learning this year and really into next semester. A lot of them a lot of parents grandparents are kind of scrambling for computers. That do basically just what they need to do. And there are a little afraid of that. Refurbishing refurbishment word. So why should someone looked toward a renewed computer as opposed to granny new one that we get that question a lot and for the computers that were selling versus new The people who are going to use them at Or for their office or something Our computer was the exact same thing that the the new computer do. For instance every computer in our building that used Including the one right. Now that i'm line is one of our renewed computers so you wouldn't tell the difference Unless you're doing something you know high power that you need the top of the line computer which must be were not Our computer will will work perfectly fine and you'll never notice the difference so the students can use You know all the google tools that they need you can use excel powerpoint In all of that and get it at a much better price for a lot of the concern about getting a renewed or refurbish computer. Is that if you're buying it from a big box store. There's no one to call and say. Hey this doesn't work that may be the beauty of buying from from somebody like you.
