They come to us and she doesn't want to go into right right or he doesn't want to go under facility. And i the fact they want their independence which can have a bowl yet right so the the other question wanna ask about is lee county keeping up with the growth. Everybody seems like they want to move to florida. It's it's getting crazy with With all the people that want to get out of prison states and move down to florida. And i think what you're seeing is to a certain extent that's driving up the rents me putting people in risk of being homeless. Because they can't afford. I believe that had to leave the area because they just couldn't afford that. The houses were being sold that they were renting. Because i get it. The owner owns the house can get a boatload of money. Okay but it is. It is tricky to find affordable housing county. Shortly is we'd put our first or second program together for audible housing. Every city needs to step up when i was in santa bell. We had affordable housing there. Every city needs to participate. The county needs to participate. Because what we're having is we also need to have that tool. Toolbox have affordable housing to get that teacher to get that nurse yet that my son moved out from orlando. He's now in cape coral. I understand exactly what people going through it..

When i was eighteen. I had full scholarships too many colleges and my dad had a alcohol problem so he actually thought the and mom kicked him out so we went from not really understanding. The financials of the house Probably and upper middle class family to obviously not having any income coming in the house whatsoever. We in much worst financial shape than we realize. Honestly the pressure. He felt drinking so we went from going on welfare going on food stamps sitting in a dock for ten days. It's the worst feeling ever. Have i believe my drive today at eighteen. Now at sixty two is drive. There's no worse feeling in watching somebody go to bed hungry. There's no worse feeling than sitting there and feeling like you might be homeless. I was fortunate to sit down with the banker at the time. come up with a plan and it worked. My dad actually got into a four years later on. Mom and dad lives to the day. He died in that house. So it's a great story so my heart goes out to people and don't want anyone to go to bed hungry. I went to bed hungry. I notice like so when people talk about homelessness. I wanna make sure we help them in any way possible. The county has the bob jeans. Triage some you know it is not full. You have to follow rules but you have the opportunity to go there. We're going to help you get clean up. We're going to help you go through whatever treatment program you need to. We're going to give you a bed three hot meals. Yeah the ability to. We're going to help you with trying to get a job. We have many programs like that and through.

You know if you're just some that has moved here and want to have a quality of life. think about a fertilizer. You put on your lawn. Think about you know and and make sure you're contributing to the solution not the problem and everybody has a role in this. And there's no silver bullet to clean in the south. There's no silver bullet whatever. Everybody has to take an active role to understand. How do i make the environment better. And my correlation wasn't about the science. It was the impact to the community from financial point of view that resonated with me scientists isn't something he an h. What are if you're a betting man. Wh- what would you say about whether or not the county is going to file a lawsuit against the federal government. I'm not gonna bet. We've got four other gentleman. I work with but we were all unanimously approved. The fact that we will use every tool not toolbox including whatever legal options available to us. Our work which staff will do whatever we need to do when it comes to clean water. I believe in what we believe in. And i am very passionate about it and i also have the benefit of being an office for fifteen years so the relationships the things that you see and i have more knowledge because of that but yeah this is an issue that i made a promise to the citizens lee county. I was gonna work on. Yeah and my promises word. Something i was raised by a dad. Obviously a retired marine. You know an interest you give someone your word you follow through on your word. So the The county attorney whose no nonsense when you watch him at the meetings mentioned about the endangered species act or i mean is a lawsuit just going to try and muddy up the waters if it happens just delay it and try and work on on getting a low some better or do you think this is dumb question of course but you know. Do you think there's something serious there that you could actually hang your hat on. There's always options and we'll obviously follow the science. I do believe we have many alternatives available to us. And i believe that most people when they feel there's an injustice sh you end up taking to the court system in what has happened during that process is. There's a compromise and is obviously something going along with that you know. I also have the habit. Unfortunately in the mark and the stereotype. We've sued water management district three years ago walk into lee county with five other mayors behind me and we sued and yet we lost that lawsuit but you know the outcome of that district changed the nfl issue which was minimum flow issue and we got more water. And that's what the objective should. I lose the lawsuit. Technically yes did we benefit from it. Yes got it. Worrell manatees dying. That's crazy isn't it. i mean is it.

"Is lee county. What are some of the programs that are in place. Lee county is doing four clean water. So here's slad. I asked so i mean we have been involved in a very aggressive program called. Don't feed the monster fertilizer program gay. We advertise work with the city of santa bell. We're trying to look at this. I'd like to see the times extended for fertilizer. Have it stored in june where there's a blackout period and go to november because dot coincides hurricane season. Right now we obviously habits starting in july going through the end of september so we are very aggressive and making sure. You don't fertilize during that period of time. Because i live on a canal and if i fertilize it's just going to arrange going to washington now. So we do that secondarily. The county has done so much acquisitions with land called twenty twenty okay. The two thousand twenty program is a significant piece to having less development last development has less problems in strain on the water system so they do that storm water runoff very active in that process. We're trying to make sure we identify where we can and how we do the other says filter marshes you go through that process to make sure we're having as clean water as possible and we're looking at areas that we can improve upon. Make sure we do. But you know here's the fallacy in this whole discussion when you talk about what a quality so we all follow something called the tm deal total daily maximum load. It talks about nitrogen. Well what's going to happen to the total maximum daily load. And we're doing these local projects is it's going to be totally just offset and worse when you have all this water coming that the east coast should be taking. We're taking so the water quality products were working on our significant and most people don't realize the millions upon millions of dollars that the county spent ten is an area that we did. We thought could be a solution and part of the solution for c. forty-three visit ten million dollars. Acquisition paid for that. So when i look at the twenty twenty program when i look at fertilizer stormwater runoff and fertile and when it comes to septic tank of those are the things we're working on water quality so i don't go to washington and say please fund these projects. Yeah here's what we're doing. We walk the walk and talk to talk. And i did that on santa boswell. I don't think like when you watch a county board meeting..

"It's ever been. We actually have a wedding list, and everyone is literally wanting to come aboard and they want to serve. And in this day and age when you turn that TV on and you see everywhere, USA Their problems. Thankfully, we don't have that here and we don't we have law and order and what they do have is a sheriff in administration that stands with them and back them and allows them to do their job. You know, Sheriff. I get home a couple of times a year, and I hope someday I get to meet you. My brother speaks so highly of you and I appreciate the time on the air and from everybody in Arizona. We want to thank Lee County for stepping up and sending people to do this a united we stand. That's why we're a great country. There's no cost. You can put on saving lives and protecting lives. And we're there together. All right. Thank you, Sheriff. Thank you. That is Sheriff Carmine Marcelino from Lee County, Florida, My hometown and very I just a great A great sense of support for law enforcement for the rule of law. I'm just glad that they're doing this. It's unfortunate that we're sending the call out this way. This is a federal issue. I'm glad that he said that it's not political, because I don't believe that it is. I think the issue of border security in Arizona is one we all share. There is a complex issue when it comes to, um, when it comes to all things to do with the border, we understand, and I totally understand that there is an absolute need for comprehensive immigration reform. I think we need to do a better job with our immigration system in this country, but What the sheriff's talked about it in the huge percentage rise in fentanyl coming across the border and methamphetamines coming across the border, but also the couple of 1000% increase in sex trafficking that's coming across the border. It affects not just Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, California. This is something that affects us nationwide and so securing the border and sending a message that we will is something I think that is a strong message that needs to be sent. Number one. But we also after sending that message need to do something to solve our immigration issues. I agree with that wholeheartedly, But, um, I am thrilled that people are answering the call. And maybe others will. No one is looking for a battle. And I mean a real physical battle. No one is looking for a war. What people are looking for is security and our police agencies in border towns are suffering and being overwhelmed because they don't have the firepower, and they don't have the manpower that the cartels do. And so our state is stretched. Then we have the border strike force with our highway patrol. But having other people here that are saying we understand this is a national issue is encouraging. So a big thank you to Sheriff Martino from Lee County in Florida, and I'm very thankful that he took the time out to come on this morning. In a moment we talked with Gato since the Big Q poll question of the day. And then we will talk about President Biden and the tax plan with one of our Arizona's own congressman Schweikert. All that's coming up in just a few moments. First, Let's talk about trade and wealth, You know, trade and wealth has been around Arizona for a long time.

Accidentally Trashed, Thawed or Expired: Reports of Covid Vaccine Spoilage
"Of covert vaccinations picks up, So do the reports of doses going to waste and it's more than just a handful here and there. We're talking 300 doses in Lee County, North Carolina. 1000 doses in Palm Beach and in Tennessee. Nearly 5000 doses have gone to waste. In the last month, Blake farmer of member station to be PLN in Nashville looked into it. Most clinics or experience to giving vaccines but not ones that are so precious and so sensitive to temperature that definitely have been losing since Sleepover. This pressure, Beth Ann Wilmore manages the covert vaccine inventory at a community health center in Franklin, Tennessee. Nonprofit clinics in the state started receiving shipments a month ago. I was definitely waking up in the mill a knife. Wondering how the temperatures were doing and they get okay. I hope it's good. She knows the horror stories one from a county over happened Just a week ago, The local school district received 1000 doses for a teacher vaccination event, but they were put in an unapproved freezer. The temperature sensor on this shipment gave an error code and out of caution. They were advised to throw them all away. It hurts my heart. Dr. Lisa Pearcey is the health commissioner in Tennessee, which has seen one of the country's biggest spikes in reported spoilage. But it's one of the risks in having so many places to get the vaccine as a way to increase access. There are now more than 700 sites across the state. It definitely raises the level of Concern when you have more partners, particularly partners that aren't under your direct control. In Knoxville, 1000 doses were thrown out, apparently confused for a shipment of dry ice in Memphis. The county was slow to disclose that nearly 2500 doses were allowed to expire on several occasions. Local health director resigned, the state has stepped up audits and cold in staff from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to monitor. There's so many opportunities for doses to go Bad in Florida workers turned the power off to a fridge in Connecticut. A fridge door just didn't close and Dr Kelly more of the immunization action coalition says a little spoilage is expected. Would be more worried if I saw reports of zero doses. Wasted transparency is the real concern. You want to see some waste because that means people are paying attention and that real world accidents happen and that they're being responded to properly. You could just don't want to see negligence. Reports of spoiled doses still come too far less than 1% of the total, even in states with big losses. There is hope that mishaps will be easier to avoid. With the newly authorized Johnson and Johnson vaccine. It can last in a normal refrigerator for months

Board eighty thousand votes separated My primary opponent and Mr Rooney and so I said that's a big margin the make up a difference of so I I saw Lee County as local way to make a difference and I didn't like the direction that The commissioners have been taken the past several years. Which direction is the focus is on growth and development and not on health and wellbeing? The water. The water issues are just across the bay here. Though the The the green blue-green algae the red tie issues and and I've been to a lot of different Protests and meetings about the water issues and joined the collusive water keepers because I think water is a bigger issue than just growth. Growth is going to happen no matter what and they haven't been managing that very well either. You're not you know contributes to then more water problem. It's not managed well and we're just GONNA add insult to injury we need smart. Growth is what we need already.

The county was celebrating that they just bought more land to is that. That's that's a nice gesture. I've seen a lot of conservation. Twenty twenty money's being spent to administration and not buying land compared to the other counties sixty seven counties in the state Only twenty percent of our county has been conserved for for For preservation other counties. It's averaging thirty five to forty percent and we've got a lot of big green spaces we need to keep those and and keep the bluewater as pristine as we can get it so you do. You agree that county. That government should own so much. Poverty is is to prevent to prevent people from developing in other ways to do that. These that can be placed so yeah just like by mining rights to mine underneath. I end or or or drill You can also have easement on top of the land to just keep it as either cattle or agricultural purposes rather than putting sixteen hundred houses on it just makes you say hello to our daughter.

They remain the same. As the silent Rio Grande kind of directors out. They'll over that twelve hundred plus mile route in Texas. You know from El Paso to Brownsville the river wash sand and the yielding desk Ligi soil kinda inevitably gives way to this new influx. Now, that's always gonna be that river.

And and we know that putting them in livestock cages like we did in the past is not the answer.
