"When it happens anytime another hour with Bob Laws Bury starts now on newsradio WAM eliminating. Thank you very much. I appreciate that. Good morning my friend. Thank you so much for tuning into the flat out. Beautiful Day for Radio Program. A cloudy kind of Humid warm way. I if I could for half a second. I want to repeat something that we discussed earlier in the program Simply because it like kicked me in the head a little bit last night you saw on the news. This morning. There was that pursuit of a of a tractor trailer started with a very simple A traffic stop in the village of of Leroy and the deal. Is that the dry. It was speeding. The the driver was uncooperative. And contrary in from the very start in fact as the officer you know they'll step up on the running board so that you can you know? Speak through the window to the driver. The driver took off with the Leroy officer on the running board he or she left For for safety thankfully not injured and But the pursuit was on and the Truck went to Batavia and then he went back to Leroy Anna. It came down. I would guess on route sixty three or something like that Nineteen or something into Livingston County where Livingston County Sheriff's Office took up the matter and where I think. A lot of has started listening on You know used to be was the scanner on top of the refrigerator Now we've got nap on the phone and listening along as this pursuit worked its way out Through the village of Agenda CEO And then over to interstate three ninety at exit. Eight and southward. It was a daunting is not the right word it was an astounding experience to be. You know an ear witness if you will to. What was transpiring. He had a stroke several Police cars in different jurisdictions with the truck apparently trying to ram them and As the vehicle. The truck eighteen wheeler was approaching three ninety It was very clear that he was firing at police officers. And you had police officers radioing in that yes. He's firing in. You know there are holes in my door and and to hear the coordination of this with the nine one one operators and you know. I don't know the voices of everybody but I recognized of course the voice of Sheriff. Tom Doherty of Livingston County and it became very apparent that sheriff. Doherty was not only in command of the incident. He was also in pursuit of The vehicle and It was doing a variety of of things in seemingly trying to kill. Cops is one of them. I live tweeted the event as was taking place if you are on twitter. It's at Bob. Lana if you look back at that but you had this running a discussion of how to handle this that and the other and and what was going on and the truck after having fired police officers many times gets on interstate. Three ninety going south and I'll be honest with you when it came into the village. Genesee on the first go round You know Mount Morris is the next town south and you know I am doing an inventory of. Where's my family? And if he should get on route thirty six and come this way where am I going to put my family To keep them safe. And what am I GONNA do? You get those thoughts in the in the back of your head or whatever. Instead he goes through GENOCEA WE GETS out on three ninety and you think well he could get off and come through here. And but What happened was he does a U. Turn on the interstate. He's coming back as he approaches the exit eight Sheriff Dougherty had deputies with rifles their It's a fairly long a shot. They don't seem to have been successful. He continued to drive negotiating the exit ramp in any headed back towards the village of genesee. Oh and You know as the Sheriff said a little after eleven o'clock last night in his A statement to the press Quote I was leading the stack. There's this long chain of flashing lights in the first one was car one though Livingston County Sheriff and there's a video which Surfaced in. You know first responder circles shortly after the event which. I tweeted out last night and posted on facebook. Which shows the Tractor trailer if you're familiar with with genesee. Oh is on route. Twenty eight just to the east of the village about where that mobile mart is on the other side of were tractor supply and Wegmans applebee's are and There was a you know a someone in the first responder community. Who's WHO's making this video and you see the truck coming. You see the train of a first responder vehicles. Police vehicles Behind it and then you hear steady pop of rifle fire and You you see then the truck of veer to the right and and go off the road and that of course coincides with You know the the call that that he was in custody you here at a certain point on the radio that he is a dead he's been shot including in the head and and as this was playing out my mind is thinking about the actions of the officers Is the command of the sheriff and the safety of the community and again most of us are you know lane and our beds or watching. Tv or some few are listening on the scanner. Where what's going on in here? Are these on the side of the. I think it's the fire trucks and genesee. Oh I think on the side of the firetrucks genesis. It says the defenders of the Valley and I you know love and appreciate no doubt the GENOCEA fire department. My son in law used to be a member there but Last night. The defenders of the Valley were Sheriff Stars and they They drew a line and last night and it was clearly that that that vehicle having started now to fire guns At officers was not going to be allowed back into the village of Genesee Where hundreds of families Were in their homes. Depending upon these law enforcement officers to protect them and clearly. The sheriff made that decision and He deployed his deputies. And on the tape you can hear them as they engage the truck and and they They defended the valley and God bless him. And that's one you know a big deal to you know to those of us listening to those far more significantly taking part.

"On. Newsradio wham eleven eighty the backgrounds. Welcome back and I hate to Belabor this matter of the A tractor trailer Chase through a genesee Livingston County's last night but it was Again one of those deals I I and I don't. I'm not sure how to express this because I'm not exactly sure I feel Emotion the same way others. Do you know and and and you probably feel the same way we. I don't know you know our all wired And I don't cry Under any circumstance the only time I feel an emotion that could choke me up. A little bit is Typically when I see some duty done some act of selflessness. Or whatever else like that but last night is I listened to these And again I. I don't know all the voices just two or three And I think it was primarily may have been exclusively the Monroe County or check that Livingston County Sheriff's Office But as I listened these individuals in an ad be understood the best I could. What was transpiring in what they were speaking of each in their own way I had one of those things where almost choked up Touched by the capability and professionalism People who at the end of it all To protect our lives were risking. There's you have a deputies Calling in that yeah. They're they're they're both holes in my car door and as this is going on every voice is calm. It's earnest it's a focused but Calm and professional and As you know decisions are made And I go to my twitter feed and not that I was great at it. But you know I just tried to transmit what was being said to folks out and about but you could see as well. Decisions are being made That are life and death and again. I was tremendously impressed with Sheriff Dorothy Anyway I'll event. Maybe we'll be able to speak with him later there. A lot of other things going on In town for the fifth consecutive night. If I'm counting correct well Saturday Sunday. Monday Tuesday Wednesday for the fifth consecutive night. There were mass disturbances involving violence in the city of Rochester. Right and you know they fatality. The the the slaying yesterday was a large gathering That turned violent and that was before the large on Clifford Avenue last night. That had the poor officers the Rochester Police Department Running a wild There is the the Rochester Police Department in Certain Ways. It's public communications. Effort is very good. And what that certain way is that in the overnight the commanders on duty I think are very very good at responding to media inquiries and they are wonderful people in the local news media mostly there. The producers of the assignment editors at the television stations. And they're awake through the night they're keeping track on things and they're doing a good job. I admire them in what they do. And they'll make these little. You know sent an email and the policy of the police department. Is that when anybody makes an inquiry under that setting everybody gets the response and So you wake up in the morning. And you'll see through the night in effect where various commanders have responded to the inquiries again primarily from the television producers and and folks and there'll be subject lines but there was one from Lieutenant. Umbria No Last night and the IT and I'm not sure the there's nothing these words sort of grabbed me. I'M NOT SURE WHY. But they are simply murder at dewey and McGee Murder at Dewey and McGee and that situation when funny thing with cops the word murderers used seldom..

Lakes region are meeting the metrics of meeting the benchmarks Are are going to be reopening here Tomorrow I just expect it will be a A guidance document or some sort of Okay or what have you? Or here's the messaging from Albany. From one of the governor's press conferences. Likely today how. How is the county doing all the counties counties in good shape as it relates to all the metrics so we follow the county of Livingston specifically in addition to the region so all of those Metrics are quite Our they need to be as far as if you look at those as the gauge. For whether or not you're able to to reopen we just ask people continue to you know be be mindful of the best practices. I know it's a pain in the butt to have to think about a mask wearing and then people aren't used to it but basically I wear mine to come into the office when I potentially in closed quarters and then you know when I'm working on my desk I'm not wearing it. Go to the Emergency Operation Center wearing to come in and out of people.

"Between the crosses row on row the Cray wrote each metal Livingston county poppy is two feet wide painted red and fused atop a green iron stem of varying heights connected to the ground by Barings that'll sway when the wind blows when completed this spring the flag will cover one hundred ninety five by eighty five feet white concrete flag stripes between that make handicapped accessible rose perfect for wondering and quiet contemplation it's a monument designed to inspire awe but the process has been just as important as the product when I first presented the idea I said I'll do this project but with the stipulation I want that turns coming into the school being shown how to use the equipment and create their own poppies I could have done under poppies but it's not about me the significance should be them being recognized for their service and so this does that every poppy is designed traced caught molded welded and painted by the individual a dog tag on each identifies their name dates of service and any other information deemed particularly significant then a unique totem welded into the center or on a panel adds a personal touch only made one for his father a veteran of the Canadian airforce sold his poppy is a maple leaf there's all sorts of really unique centers in them stars one his uncle was a pilot and he put an airplane there's one with the VFW and one with an American Legion emblem I've built five copies one for a friend and roster all family members three of which were World War two veterans that's where a band common teacher's aide at the mount Morris sposi center and the metal trades program he's assisting only with the monument I'm also a veteran of the United States airforce and New York Air National Guard they all were slowly losing family members were slowly losing a World War two vets and Vietnam vets I'm proud to say I'm a veteran and sociais what's the organizations as one of them they emphasize self generating veteran involvement has been the incidental key to their monument success doctors were coming from other counties I am here to make a poppy they get so hooked up with their PP here and as soon as we got in the shop other veterans that have been coming regularly they could see that there was a deer in the headlights they just court let me help you this is where we start and we go from one step to the next veterans helping other veterans to create this monument and I wasn't doing it the finish is going to look great but really that was the most impressive part of this whole project creating a poppy gets the veteran or family member in the door but the greater service is they're inviting veterans into a space where people want to listen there were some nights that we were head over forty veterans which was almost too much because we're limited with the equipment and space but they all work together and and they shared equipment they share their time the share their stories then they came back

perfect for wondering and quiet contemplation it's a monument designed to inspire awe but the process has been just as important as the product when I first presented the idea I said I'll do this project but with the stipulation I want veterans coming into the school being shown how to use the equipment and create their own poppies I could have done under poppies but it's not about me the significance should be them being recognized for their service and so this does that every poppy is designed traced caught molded welded and painted by the individual a dog tag on each identifies

step to the next veterans helping other veterans to create this monument and I wasn't doing it the finish is going to look great but really that was the most impressive part of this whole project creating a poppy gets the veteran or family member in the door but the greater service is they're inviting veterans into a space where people want to listen there were some nights that we're had over

3 Things To Know Around Detroit

"The city of Detroit is one of ten American cities to join a new. National program meant to figure out how to help residents make more money and improve their economic status. The initiative is funded by the Bloomberg philanthropies the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the bomber group, which is led by former Microsoft CEO and Detroit area. Native Steve bomber the program goes for eighteen months. The plan is to test ideas, that connect low income residents and affordable housing to opportunities for more income and provide services that help them become more financially stable, the goal is to make affordable housing throughout the city and access point to city services. This is a big deal across the United States as the likelihood that the current generation, earns more than their parents is declining, especially among the middle class and poor. The program came out of a recent survey of American mayors, who said economic issues are their biggest local challenge the results of the twelve million dollar program will then be shared across the country. Other cities in the program include Lansing, right here in Michigan. New. Orleans, Louisiana Newark, New Jersey and others separately. The bomber group last fall issued sixteen million dollars in grants to eighteen Detroit area. Nonprofits to help children and families in poverty. You've heard of hell Michigan, right? It's an unincorporated town near paint ni in Livingston county. It's famous for its road signs a tavern and stores selling, souvenirs branded with the community's name now a California youtuber has purchased the whole five acre commercial property, and officially renamed it gay hill in protest of the Trump administration. Elijah Daniel says the move is in protest of the Trump administration's decision to not allow US embassies to fly the gay pride rainbow flag during June for pride month. He also says the only flags it will be allowed to be flown. Our pride flags, though. That's apparently just joke. And no ban is actually in place on other flags. Daniel is a comedian and musician, who has around five hundred and eighty thousand subscribers on YouTube. He's also the owner of an LGBTQ cannabis business in Los Angeles in two thousand seventeen he participated in hell's program to become mayor for a day, but was promptly. Impeached. He has a video, documenting the experience, titled I became mayor and banned street people from my town, all in lower case letters, Daniel tells NBC news. He is trying to engage his young audience in politics. We picked an interesting place to do it gera-, because hell Michigan in Livingston county. That's deep red country there man. Let me tell you. So I gotta ask, like, how does one by town. I didn't know you could do that because it's on Inc. There is no it's not really a town. There's no village council or or or township board of trustees or anything. It's, it's I think it's sort of unofficially called a hamlet. I mean it's really it's, it's have you ever been there? No. It's so it's like five acres. It's kind of it almost feels like a theme park at this point. There's like I think there's a mini golf course. If I remember correctly, there's a tavern. There's souvenir store. There's technically ally berry. It's right near the banks of the Huron river and everything it's really pretty there. I mean it's beautiful surroundings. It's out near the Pinkney state recreation area. So it's. It's heavily wooded everything. But it's it's not really a town. Do you think we should do the show at hell? Hamlet. We'll keep that one into consideration. The conservatory in bells reopening nearly a month ahead of schedule. The one hundred and fifteen year old Anna scripts, Whitcomb, conservatory reopens Wednesday after a number of structural repairs water head severely compromised. The twenty one foot steel trusses that are original to the building the new trusses used galvanized steel, and they'll be more resistant to the weather the project cost two and a half million dollars. It was paid for by the Michigan DNR and the Ralph c Wilson junior foundation. You know, I'm really glad to see this project happen. I have some so many memories of this place because my grandmother was a member of the o botanical society, and she would drag me around, like ten eleven twelve years old, hauling pots, and plants and all kinds of stuff around that place. It's such a such a cool, little facility, not just the, the public property. They've got all those greenhouses as well.

A new era begins for the Boy Scouts of America

"There's an interesting story. That's been unfolding. I want to say for the last couple of years where the boy scouts of America changed their name their now known as BSA, right? And they're inviting girls to be part of the BSA the boy scouts, and we have girls from Livingston county as the first female scouts to join the B S A troop, I've got some questions about this particular story and checking in on our phone line. Now, the scoutmaster of this troop three ten in Pinkney, Michigan Heather Hudson. Now Pinkney is known for cheese to be sure as we stopped going up north on the I seventy five to get some. But now you kind of made news being the first. Scouts BSA with girls in it. Give us a little bit of the background as to how this unfolded, and what kind of impact it's having up there. And to those who are members of the troupe. Well warrant. Things are kind of exciting here in picky. We're all really excited about the new true. And I am hurt or assistant scout master with troops three twelve. Which is our linked true. So. A couple of different models. There's a all-girl troupe or you can have a link to which is the way we're doing things. So we have our three twelve which is all blade troop. And we have a troop three ten which is the all girl. True. We share a committee and are chartered organizational breath as well as yes assistant scout masters and all the troops trailer and all the gear. So for us troop three twelve it was an easy transition to make the decision. Start the girl. True. We had many. Well, there's girls right now and of them they've all had siblings. Either in a boy scout troop right or in our troop, specifically three twelve and they were watching what their brothers were doing things are. Well, the things they were doing and the places they were going, and they decided that they wanted to be a part of that. When the question I have and keep in mind, I'm the father of four daughters. But why wouldn't they want to be? And I know you were involved in scouting with your sons, but why wouldn't the girls wanna be in girl? Scouts. What is it about? The boy scouts are. Now BSA that they want to be part of. Well, like, I just said. These girls have been watching her brothers were doing right and the do the scouts BSA program. And maybe these girls are also in girl scouts and yet. They have also chosen part of the scouts BSA program. So it's really no different than them to saying they want to be part of a basketball team or volleyball team some of them on the swim team. It's all about choices and what they wanna do. And so some of the things that we've been doing and that your all the girls receive a nice from our the Lynch through twelve so we've gone over nice safety. How to whip infused rope. How to certifier safely? These are all things that the girls wanted to do. And they've been doing them in our meetings made them working at meal plan going Campo to do the shopping. So there. Campout just a really great program. And unfortunately, I don't know. What the girl scout program has to offer because I'm not part of that program, and I just know all the wonderful benefits at the scouts BSA program has to offer the one thing I saw suggested that the only thing for example, girl scouts couldn't. Get is a what was it? They kind of a leadership role and become what does that special thing in in the boy scouts were. They could become the eagle scouts go right there. That was the only thing I thought that girls couldn't achieve is be getting that eagle scout. Does have a gold award. And we in the boy scouts has the eagle scout award. And so now the girls that join starting your first in two thousand eighteen will have that opportunity to get the eagle scout award as well. Let me I was looking back and and recalling a story that I saw on good Morning America was two years ago when the boy scouts of America decided they were gonna change their name to BSA, and that they were thinking about having girls joined the BSA, and this was the breaking story. And I just and I know you mentioned, you know, a lot about the girl scouts, but listen to the breaking story that good Morning America ran about two years ago when this announcement came out, but leaders of the girl scouts are outraged in a strongly worded statement, they condemn the boy scouts move to include girls, telling ABC news the boy scouts. House is on fire instead of addressing systemic issues of continuous sexual assault, financial mismanagement and deficient programming. BSA senior management wants to add an accelerated to the house fire by recruiting girls. Girl scouts generate half of their annual revenue needs through those famous cookies selling two hundred million boxes a year, which generate almost a billion dollars in sales. No word if the scouts will attempt their own cookie franchise now, what what did you make a necessary thing that was like a two two years or so ago have there because obviously everybody was not on board on this decision for girls to join the boy scouts or the BSA. Oh, go ahead. No, you go ahead. Okay. It's interesting. You know, hearing that I just know what the scouts USA has to offer. And you know, I'm proud to say, it's a wonderful program. And that that's something that these girls have chosen to do. And you know, and I I don't really understand why everybody wants to, you know, make decisions for other people or tell these young ladies and their parents, what's right for them. Or what's not right for them. Or, you know, what type of program they want to be part of all I know is the scouts BSA, you know, once women and young men to join scouts BSA. And they're also, you know, backing them in any choices that they make join any type of program that they would like to join. So I don't really pay much attention to the media because a lot of attacked skewed one way or the other all I know is our cheap is really happy the parents and pick me you're really happy and everybody's proud of their sons and daughters, and it's gonna be a great achievement. When these girls reach the
