Texas Lifts Its State-Wide Mask Mandate, Some Businesses Disagree

"As of today. Texans are no longer required to wear a mask. In public businesses restaurants included canal. Operate at full capacity without restrictions governor greg. Abbott announced the change last week. Despite objections from public health officials sarah self walbrook of texas tech public media joins us now to talk about the change in policy. Hi sarah good morning. I just explain how bad the covert situation is in texas right now. Yes the governor's new order ins mandates that had been in place since last summer at least somewhat helped texas. Is kobe situation. Abbott insisted there are fewer people in hospitals now and more people getting vaccinated although it is worth noting that vaccinations are taking place at a much slower rate than elsewhere in the country Texans are really split on whether the mask requirement should continue many think. It's too soon to not require masks but others say that wearing masks should be a personal decision and not a matter of public policy so now that there are no state restrictions on this it becomes a local issue right so howard different cities and counties responding one example. We've seen so far. I mean austin a local public health ordinance was established. Yesterday that will still require mask. Wearing the governor's executive orders specifically prohibits cities and counties from doing that. But austin city council in health authority found a loophole that they think allows them to no word yet on how the governor or other cities and counties will respond. What about schools. How how does this change schools. The texas education agency has allowed school board to decide what works best for their districts We've seen a handful that have ruled that mass will no longer be required but most districts are keeping their current rules in place through the spring governor. Abbott made his announcement last week at a mexican restaurant in lubbock. Which is where you are heard. You checked in on how that restaurant is planning to respond to the new policy. Which you learn. I did so. Owner rudy. told me yesterday that when he agreed to host the governor last week at his restaurant montelongo does. He did not know exactly what the governor was there to announce he had expected business capacity limits to be lifted but he was just as surprised as everyone. When the governor ended the mask mandate roselle has decided not to change how he does business so he's keeping his restaurant at about fifty percent capacity and will continue to require employees and customers to wear masks. He said it's up to each individual business and each person the responsibility for their health so really. This variety of responses is exactly what the governor intended with this new order.

At a high school in Lubbock, girls and boys that shallow water high school were given very different assignments during an exercise intended to explore chivalry with a medieval theme. While male students were instructed to show courtly courtesy, the teen girls we're told to cook and obey any reasonable requests from the males for chivalry Day.

Texas governor lifts mask mandate and allows businesses to open at 100% capacity, despite health officials' warnings

"Texas Governor Greg Abbott is ending coronavirus restrictions in his state. He announced this at a restaurant in Lubbock, where he also said businesses should reopen a week from today, Quote 100%. Now this is exactly what the CDC has said not to do and these public health measures early. Sarah self Wall Brick is a senior. Order a Texas tech public media and she was there covering the announcement. Hi, Sarah. Good morning. Practically What does this mean for Texans? So governor, Abbott said that starting next week, businesses will be able to open it. Full capacity and mass will no longer be required. He says he wants businesses and other entities to make those decisions. So, for example, supermarket chain H E B has already announced that they won't require customers to wear masks in their stores. So Abbott says, people should still do. It protects them. Right eye's rescinding the statewide mandate. So here's what he had to say yesterday. Personal vigilance to follow the safe standards is still needed to contain covet. It's just that now, state mandates are no longer needed. But did he explain why now? Dad, is it just that things are looking up across Texas at least when it comes to co vid hospitalizations air down even in regions like Laredo, and I'll Passo that have seen the worst of it. Vaccinations have gotten off to a really slow start here. Texas is obviously a big populous state, but less than 7% of the population is fully vaccinated right now, which is one of the lowest percentage is in the country. So you have mixed news case is going down, but vaccinations going slowly. How are people reacting to abbots announcement? It's definitely been mixed. So based on what I've seen on social media, I think a lot of people see this is a political move, especially after the fall out of the winter storm that thousands of Texans are still dealing with. I talked with a few lobby guides after the announcement yesterday because the mask me a date wasn't well enforced anyway. Dr. Craig Ryan with Covenant Health says We're sending the mask order may not do much. And he hopes that common sense prevails. I think that the people that have grown accustomed to wearing a mask and have gotten a sense of safety and security from wearing a mask will probably continue to do exactly that. Chris Bury owns a local restaurant is president of the Loving Restaurant Association. He hopes at its announcement will lead to higher consumer confidence. If everyone feels more comfortable and getting out and going out to eat and getting back to the quote unquote normal life, that's what we're looking forward to, and that's what we anticipated. Okay, That's how many businesses I would imagine might feel, But I'm curious about medical workers. The people who work on the front lines. Did you talk to any of them? I had. So I heard from one woman in particular. Christie Ginza, Who's a nurse practitioner who's been volunteering at Love Eggs, covert vaccination hub. Have a hard time believing the governor is taking advice from medical experts. He's put in labs and our economy at risk yet

"Always good when a major newsmaker joins the podcast. He is yarmouk kick elaine general manager of the columbus. Blue jackets Jahmil thanks so much for doing this. And i'm always curious about how deals come together. And maybe more specifically when deals and you know we know that there are other teams out. There obviously interested in pierre. Luke dubois in your mind. When was this trade over. Like at what point did you say. Okay i'm done. He's going to winnipeg jets by you. Gotta do your due diligence around the league and see what the interest level is and what type of options we have available. And we did that. We recommend order and you might make have to make a couple rounds a call system. Make sure that everybody who's interested. Got their opportunity to give their best shot and we did that as well. So it took a little while but You know we came to the conclusion there. After the last game that dubois played that we wanna do this sooner rather than later so we were pretty busy on friday working on that than saturday morning. We we were ready. And and now. We have patrick line and ross lubbock here. One thing that became clear to us on the outside. Is that you and kevin chevrolet off had discussed this for awhile that you kind of both knew that if you wanted to do this there was going to be the opportunity to do it. I'm curious caramel. How'd you guys known that you were each other's potential trade partners. If you needed to be we we had a good dialogue for a while and this is probably the best match right from the start. But as i said we had to do our diligence. And make sure that we've done our homework on every opportunity that might be out there and after we'd done that we return to talks with winnipeg several times and and wanted to make sure that all parts of the trade work for us as far as cap goes cash involved there other parts of the deal that we had to iron out once. We actually does hurdles. We were ready to pull the trigger on both sides. You describe what. It was like thursday night for us. I know what a incredibly competitive person. You are a lot of things. What was it like watching that. And can you talk about your discussions after the game that night. Internally internal talks always internal talks for me and a very serious about that but you know there are certain values that We have within our organization within our team in our locker room and we have a very demanding head coach who never compromised. Those values would never want him to compromise those values and i support him honor percent when he he does his coach in enforcing those values and it came to a point. Where were that wasn't a level of commitment to those values that was given by fearless dubois and that's why he was bent and i support the coach hundred percent on on that decision. Like i said after that. I think there's a little more urgency on our part to get this done and we're happy to move on with the two players that we like even if the trade hadn't occurred on saturday morning to the organization had pure luke dubois played his last game with the blue jackets. And what. I'm sort of getting at was anyway that he would have played saturday afternoon. No no you wasn't gonna play saturday but after that. It's the coach's decision on on all. He wants to handle the player. And there's no need to get into that but There's always a second chances and opportunities to redeem yourself as a player if you make a mistake or don't live up to the values that we hold strong ear but you have to show through your hard work in practice and and how you conduct your business in the locker room and within the team and I'm sure then. Our coach will always give him every player a second chance or an opportunity to show that. He's ready to live

BONUS - How to Grow Your Podcast with Colin Gray

"This bonus episode. I'm talking to one of my good friends. Colin gray of the podcast host dot com collins been writing about podcasting for over ten years. He's the creator of the popular editing software allah too and he recently published a book called podcast growth colin. Thank you so much for joining me on the show. Hey album thanks for having me on great to be here yeah. It's great to have you. yes it start. I just read the book. I love it. There's tons of actionable insights on how to grow your podcast audience. I guess i just like to hear why you and matt decided to write a book. Yeah actually i should give credit where credit student. Matthew put way more into this than i did so should really be here in the resume and lindsay harris real as well so hammond lindsay really lead on this and i contributed to so yeah i have to thank them for the reason we came up with the idea was really as we wanted to. We wanted to get something out there in the world. That was the next level podcasting so we the biggest question we always get launch. I'm sure that's the same with you as well album. Like people come along and see. How do i get my podcast out there in the world and ended disappear into the ether. And you you barely hear from them again. A next you know the podcast is defunct fallen off this fall by the wayside. This was really our attempt to answer that next question which people always struggle with which is how do i then make achieve those aims. I always wanted to you know how to make it work for me to grow that audience and i agree with advice out there. We have a lot on our website as well. But we really. We found that when we are working with people. When we're coaching people through takes just growth as a funny thing because it's long long-term espec- especially with podcasting. It takes a little bit every day. A lubbock every week a little bit on a regular basis is not one big thing. It's a little bit ongoing for a long term which makes it work. And that's really. The premise behind the book was the idea of just putting in as many different tasks many different activities as many different tactics. That can take anything from few minutes up a couple of hours but most of them are really short and actionable so that was kind of the idea behind it really to try and give everyone there one place to come to get as many different growth tactics the as as possible really will the book is broken like you said into dozens and dozens of these actionable tips and you explicitly right in the beginning. Say nobody should be trying to do everything in this book. Yeah so many tactics and it's very easy to see them and maybe get overwhelmed. I think he should do everyone. But really what you should be doing is flipping through and finding which of these i mean. Honestly they're going to end up being for you experiments. Do you want to try to see if it will resonate with your audience. Yeah absolutely and yeah. There's there's lots of different types as well so absolutely you could go in the way i see it working. Probably based as somebody picks up they have a flick through the pekka chapter. Possibly that seems to resonate with them. So something like. I am helping yourself by helping others or have we got here. We've got like user surveys of social media of communities that can thing so pick one of them even and actually just work through each of the tasks in that chapter one a week. And i think what a week we really well because it means that you've just got you've got your podcast making tame attack on an extra fifteen twenty minutes and you can do one of these growth tactics and start to grow and i think if you we we're we're not fans of hyperbole over the podcast kind of guarantee anything but if there's anything. I can guarantee if one of these tactics every week rebel year last by the end of that year your audience will be unrecognizable in terms of size and engagement and everything. So yeah i think. That's the intention dined.

Columbia Crest H3 Les Chevaux Red 2016 Review

"It's Dave from cheap wine finder.com again with another wine reviews. It's getting fiber that I decided to go red blend, which goes well with thought and I found a wine that delivers a lot for the price low. Do I have here? I got the Columbia Crest Horse Heaven Hills a shadow red blend 2016. The 2017 vintage is off too and they changed the label from 16 to 17 label is very dark for 16 and it's very white and light for 17s, you know the difference off. And so is French for horse Horse Heaven Hills is in the Columbia of valley of Washington office. It's east of Vancouver west of Walla Walla and like the northern banks of the Columbia River and when the first settlers got there, there's Wild Horses song. So you go nice bottles great place. And this is a red blend. That is Merlot sharath Lubbock and it's an assorted other than a regular hours, which I always thought was kind of funny while they don't know what's in there's like they don't know who knows. Another thing is it's been a no this isn't Ryan that's been aged think I found it for under $12 at Costco. It's under 10, I believe and it's been a note for 22 months French and American Oak. For wound 22 bucks. So, you know, it's winemaking is all about the details and near they don't know what the brakes were their birth don't know exactly what the time it was in Barrel. You know, Columbia compressed is a really it's a second label for Chateau Ste. Michelle out of Washington Seattle say Michelle's family wines of the biggest python Washington State in Columbia Crest has been around since the eighties. It's a second label, but there are no slouch in 2009 Dodge Reserve cabin or something on one line of the year and one spectator against every other line in the world. It was number one Columbia Crest mixed good lines and they're always on the top 100 list Best Buy off was so I was you know for me it's kind of funny cuz they didn't know what the grapes were inside other than the first really didn't know exactly. I got a clean it's not as if they're not taking care of business. Just they just don't really care about the writing it up. There wasn't much there. It was just let's play attention to the line and not worry about not what's written and it's a really, you know, it's like I said for under $12 and it's got a lot of flavor that Oak aging is something that you cannot duplicate. Inexpensive red wines have gotten really really good at give you a flavor that tastes pretty good. It tastes legit way. It gives you chocolate and vanilla gives you a lot of flavors in the one that you're looking for and there's different ways they do it. But the one thing they can't do and this has been off barrels for almost two years twenty two months around 22 months. You can't replicate that. There are something that happens to the wine after a couple of years in all the flavors of melding together as deleting the flavors from the earth. You can't replicate that you can put the flavor in but you can't replicate what time does 2-1, you know in the reviewer said if we on a 2017 is out now says the 2016 Under normal circumstances with an expensive red wine. You grab the newest one. I always got new. When you got one that's been aged for a while. But extra year doesn't hurt it off, you know, it helps, you know, they're drinking now wines. They're not really made to be put away, but that doesn't mean they can't be for a short period of time if you could take care of them and liquor store probably took took good care of them. So this is kind of learn those lines that goes, you know, it's a little bit, you know, like made like the more expensive wise just time is money. If it's you know, if it's in Georgia for two years, sometimes it might need almost 2 years of age in the bottle, you know, it's not a exact science, but that takes time and the longer it takes you to snow that one, you know money as long as it's in there and the harder it is to make an expensive one. And this is a value price line. Just the line. You should check out cuz it's not going to be the same old same old. I mean they're they're good red blends that are inexpensive or Perfectly fine, but here you got one that's from a single a VA from a top-notch producer that's got some occasion to it something that you can't replicate off with fancy science that only time can do and I think that's pretty cool. And that's it for me did like I said, we got more coming up keep it cheap and adios by

Texas Hospitals Battle COVID-19

"John Henderson President of the Texas Organization of rural and community hospitals. Thank you so much for talking with us. so tell me what if things been like for you? With covert nineteen, so in the early days of the pandemic are hospitals started telling us they were having a terrible time getting p. mask, and gloves and gowns enhanced sanitizer, and so we kinda became a procurement shop for our rural Texas, hospital and most of those supply chains that we would normally lean on were turned upside down, so we were working with nontraditional vendors and middleman like what were some of the channels that you were reaching out to? Your last. Well. The craziest one was a friend of a friend connected me to a guy he knew that had. Literally smuggled them across the Mexico border in had mask in A. Warehouse in east, Austin, and so. I went down there, and he offered me a Tequila shot and we worked out a deal. And from what I understand like distribution, you say destruction, but that was like you in a car. Well maybe not formal distribution, but twenty or thirty friends of ours that had called our office, saying. Hey, I'd love to help you make deliveries. Kind of created this daisy chain of volunteers across Texas where you know, we could get something to abilene and then a friend in Abilene. Get it on up to Lubbock Grammar out west Texas and the Permian Basin. And, then as we kinda develop and got better at it. We were introduced to people who wanted to help. A A really good example is a lady I met named Camilla all this who I didn't recognize the name, but she's actually married to Matthew mcconaughey. And they were great about getting US donated. Supplies, mcconaughey! Yeah. Hey. Yeah And I didn't realize when she said she had a driver ready that it was matthew with A. Truck full of mask ready to go to. Hospitals. And she said I have a driver. Eddie and it was her husband Matthew mcconaughey, who was like liver masks. If you need me to the threat, it's amazing. Talk to me a little bit about sort of how things have changed since the early days as we talk today, most areas of Texas. Are. Reporting Trans that are a little bit problematic and scary. Right because from what I've read and what I understand like Texas was at a a pretty advanced stage of reopening, and then his actually like walked it back. Early on we were will behind other states especially New York, in thought, we managed it fairly well. Most of that worst case scenario forecast did not materialize in March and April, but it certainly has since the Memorial Day holiday I think that actual coca cases in hospital admissions are like four times higher than they were at the beginning of June and I think for the first time over the weekend. We were reporting more than eight thousand cases a day. So it's it's all headed. Definitely headed the wrong direction, and now we've got a statewide mask. Order Oh so everywhere you go. You have to wear masks outside. Everywhere you go in counties with more than twenty cases, which is almost everybody. We're working to try to secure a stockpile ventilators that we can distribute around Texas you know as we see those flare ups and can help them deal with it. The thing that's actually a little bit scary to me is that the urban areas are at or near capacity which means that the rural hospitals are having to keep patients that are a little bit more acutely, ill or higher level of need than they would normally keep, so we're? They would, they would transfer someone who is really sick to a larger urban hospital, which might have more equipment resources. Things like that. That's exactly right. And they're doing that fairly well, but. In, they've got bed capacity. They're just stretched when it comes to staffing, primarily I think the state of Texas actually has sent twenty three hundred nurses to South Texas to try to help them because the hospitals her. You know bursting at the seams. There's been a lot of coverage about the difficult financial situation that a lot of hospitals are in right now. The things that they traditionally made a lot of money off of elective surgeries and clinic visits have been canceled and they've had to make big investments in equipment and staffing other things to prepare for the pandemic rural hospitals operate on a really thin margin, compared to other hospitals often barely make a profit with this surge coming in Texas. Are you worried that some rural hospitals won't make it? Oh, yes. I was worried in April that we might have a dozen rural hospitals close in, I would get multiple calls every day from rural hospitals. CEO's that were saying. We're on the ropes. You know we didn't have any cash and we were maxed out on credit before this thing started. Now we've got you know. Shutdown orders, clinic, visit, cancellations, and no elective surgeries or procedures in. We aren't going to make the next payroll soccer. We're GONNA close. Thankfully in April. They got some significant federal stimulus money that aimed ten billion dollars nationally that rural hospitals and rural health clinics that single funding alone saved half a dozen rural Texas Hospitals Oh. And so a concern of mine as we look at the whatever the next stimulus package be that if if conditions don't change and that doesn't move, then we could. Have you know more rural hospital closures. You could make an argument that like well we. We should concentrate our resources an urban hospitals and they can have like the very best everything. People can just get transferred. Well, that's that's the argument that urban citizens matter more than rural citizens and I believe every Tex Mex and some of these rural communities are literally. From a larger community, so I think I think Cova has actually been a pretty stark reminder of lots access to healthcare in hospital. Capacity Matters. you know I, I know that we wish we had some of hospitals available that have closed in the last few years. I'm wondering I. Don't know just like what your? Takeaway from this whole thing has been. Well. I think it's probably the most consequential six months in my lifetime, and and maybe the most the next one hundred days. We'll be as important as anything we've been through. A since April,

"On CBS sports radio Robert Lubbock here with yet this morning and I'm joined now by Nelson Figaro former MLB pitcher co host of amazing but true podcast and that's going to get into that they squabble between Major League Baseball players and the owners but first before we get into that specifically I want to get your thoughts on some I've been saying which is that to me it's kind of gross that this is baseball's only voice in this moment I I feel like they're you know they're definitely individual players who have said something but in the NBA there's this right just debate if you will going on about return to play or not the positives of returning to play and being able to contribute to the movement or whether it would be a distraction from the movement in in the NFL obviously the you know that there do you have J. J. watt Baker Mayfield all these other players who have who have spoken out the the the conversation that happened around drew Brees put it in Major League Baseball it feels like that sports singular voices about money right now what your thoughts on that yeah it's it's it really is a shame because baseball has the ability to do so much more and has done so much more and and a lot of different times of need of of of of where the focus shouldn't be about the money it should be about the joy of the game in the sport nine eleven is the only thing that I can remember where there was a work stoppage due to something that was beyond baseball right when when everything happened the buildings fell we went to war and I remember sitting there going what we do now it will be you know at everything had come to a stop and then when they started talking about bringing back baseball and it was the immediate we want to play of course because that's what we do it was we want to be at that distraction even if it's only for three hours of a day to take your mind off of the all the terrible things that have just happened the terrible things are going on because now we're going to war we wanted to be that distraction and playing the sport that we love right now we've never seen anything like this okay the coronavirus as worldwide taken the economy and US stronghold in a way like nothing we've ever seen so to sit around arguing numbers where people are expected to live off a stipend check of twelve hundred dollars for three months really is not the best look for any sport especially when the other sports are kind of just sitting back and and try to do more more it within their communities with every all the other things are happening now with racism and and and what we're seeing so it's really not a good look it's kind of showing the ignorance of the the baseball economy and how it's always been on the older side where they have sat back behind a different set of rules and things that don't really apply to normal businesses yeah I mean and when when you see what's what's going on publicly right now let's let's get your thoughts on on the actual resolution how much do you think this is negotiating and and being tone deaf in the moment by doing so and how much do you think we're going to see that this actually come to an agreement well I I think you if you look at the latest player stats the players alike you know what we want to play baseball order us to play baseball we're ready to play but the owners seem to you by saying that I think that puts the onus right now the owners of saying how much more do you want to squeeze out of it we understand their losses when Justin is always losses but owners of cried losses for every team that they've ever owned and at the end that's impossible can be a ten billion dollar industry and yet everyone is losing money with their teams so they've always cry that way no matter where they were on the playoffs scale where they were on on the national ranking scale as far as you know population in their city they've always cry that they're not making money they lose money every year so we've never seen the books on exactly how much money that is or how much money that they're they're making in TV revenue is sky rocketing through the years you're talking to some of the major cities major teams major market teams they're getting upwards of you know fifty million dollars just to have baseball broadcasted all around and those blackouts that normal people have to adhere to that's because because of some of that to me I think we're at we're at a point in time where the players have said we have negotiated in good faith from the beginning we said that if this season was to be played that we would take pro rated salaries for how many games play they want to play the maximum amount of games and I think that's the way baseball's always been as a reason for that is the reason of the season has been a hundred and sixty two games for so long it where every you know every other sport there's a lot less games baseball has been that marathon sport that goes so long from the spring all the way into the fall and that's what we loved about the game so now it will if you're what you're trying to do is shorten the season to kind of nullifies somebody extra costs that right hand then of course when you get to the postseason I love when the older sex but if you get to the postseason baseball players live on S. I could say that right now my I've had in my contract that said if I won the MVP of the World Series and make another you know fifty sixty grand but I'm not banking on that money that's not something that's it something that I could even have a possibility of actually doing most of the time you're sitting there as a player and these contracts were negotiated everything is already set in stone because that baseball has the ability to have these guaranteed deals and baseball players are pretty flexible I think body but it was very flexible he's been getting one point two five million for what twenty five years so you can defer payments no one knows even thinking about that so would like to set short term you're looking at damaging the sport because you're talking about billions and billions of dollars where people are struggling to make ends meet and paying their rent.

Weren't you in in Rotterdam so? Have you been coping without the prospect of any sort of live dies than well getting Easter? Now Joel tennis being canceled Irvine being cancelled. Yeah I had tickets for the first time and it's law it was council but hopefully out next year and we had celebration on on the TV last night and had some Swedish food and some cocktails to kind of raise a bit of a glass to what what never happened. But but yeah I think I think you were watching us. Well Joe. You're right yes I was. I catch Lubbock came. I'm going to hold my hand up here. Johnny Logan he comes on the TV and have no idea who he is by turns out. He's he's pretty much the go of of the on contests Mariah a bit. Like the Federa of of your vision life. If you don't tennis you you at least know the name federal. Maybe Johnny Logan could could be a bit like that but yeah. I was quite surprised. You shouldn't you've never heard of him. He's one well three times twice as a singer songwriter. Say He is the kind of the winningest person in in your vision. I guess you could say but yeah maybe actually we can do a European podcast as well. But let's let's go to tennis because we're going to be looking at the Italian. Upn and top eight movements. The happened in rave the last few decades. And perhaps I should lead on this one job because I'm going start with a moment featuring the man himself rapper. One of surprise well yes and listeners. And said he'd rougher bear with us because we all see you're not the end of the alternative Casey's season I mean let's be honest because light Madrid. Rome is Dallas. Hi I think he's one like what nine titles zero something ludicrously say is as as hardly a surprise to kind of see him featured this list say yes came. More is was the first moment. We're WE'RE GONNA be reliving. Well I thought we have liquor two thousand five. Which was you know I play horses and really where he takes. The kind of took it by storm. He won the first time. Yeah his first of nine titles. I think back in five and so he came up against Korea. Who at the time I guess was probably the most to stop ish claycourter of over air or at least one of them very face competitor for sure but the final was another five-set Masters Final five-set thriller? It was over five hours long. Which if you think about now if they were doing that consistently Austin Final Monte Carlo Madrid. That would just be insane. I mean I actually am believe that they used to do this to be called with the but yeah it was. It was a real ding. Dong to one of the better word. Joe Six four three six six three full six and then rougher one at seven six on a law set tiebreak but think about this much. Rougher was a double breakdown and fifth say. Who's three lockdown Sakaria? Really could've gone on us up momentum going away and one but I think really is kind of weakest point throughout his whole career was was his mental strength and he kind of collapsed that combined with with. Rafa you know. Obviously he's attitude his diehard shoot. Never giving up. He was on like a sixteen match winning streak at this point and say obviously he. He had a lot of belief in his game. And but I think Korea would be very devastated after this loss at I think. Actually in his post-match she interceded say this was one of the hardest defeats of his career. I think it was interesting to is. I think Korea probably getting into this matching gains clay season. Yeah he's probably thinking. I'm beatable on clay call. There is no one else out there better than me and who comes along on the Dow eighteen year old teenage eh relatively unheard of and I think this match proved that even when Korea was playing his absolutely best tennis possible. That was someone else out there better than him and I think he was kind of disheartened by that and I think this much great show us. You said mentally he you know he wasn't as strong as some of his other competitors or I think when you're three love up Double in the fifth set us really should be closing that match out and he wasn't able to do that. I think that's one of the things we might associate with a player who you know as brilliant as he is in Korea kind of on the mental side of things. I don't think you could put him up there with the greats and I kind of look at this match. I look at the two thousand four French Open final as well where he Gaston Gaudio. In the final game was five sets but again crucially he was two sets up. He was six love. Six three up was unable to close out the the match. And you know he's probably one of these as you put in the category of greatest players never have one. Ud wonder if if he hit if he had won if he had won this final in in Rome beaten Dow that would have given him the confidence indicate and reinforce that belief that he was and he was at the time the best the best clay court player in the world. I think obviously that loss against scout and then going into this match against Rafeh just his. His mental side of things just wasn't subscription. A Rafeh had beaten him in the Monte Carlo. Final just a couple of weeks before this so again he knew he was up against and he kind of let it. Let it slip away to be honest with you and Yeah so I just thought you know. Obviously this was this was a great match and it was symbolic because again you have this is like the birth of of Raffarin. His kind of play. Call dominance in this. Totally kind of pulsing off of his. You know the best steak or two at the time we had people like Carlos Moya one Ferrara Cowdrey. Kara in a sort of all very good establish trae which just as soon as Raff kind of started working his magic. He'd I guess it kind of became almost impossible. Perhaps to argue against for being the best. Geico

"But this was obviously based in Lubbock, but it does have that that statewide impact because the LTD says sixty two thousand dollars was taken from Lubbock ATM Lubbock area ATM, but that suspect or suspects stolen card information. Debit cards credit cards to withdraw money from two different ATM's belonging to two different Bank in the area. So how did they do to banks Worthing? And how did they do it? So this the Bank, and I happen to Bank and the information Eliezer thing is they believed that the card information was stolen through those cards skimmers that, you know, we talk about all the time on don't you'll sometimes see on on gas pump, or you know, in other any place where you're swiping your card. You're putting your car. It's kind of funny how that works any place. You swipe the card you're putting the card information that but in order to use the card you need to wipe it. Right. So anyway, that that's another conversation for another day, I suppose, but you know, they're they were basically taking that card information that you wipe and and creating clone card, and then using the you've been got a duplicate card that got somebody personal information on it. And and you go from there and people are are were were apparently. Feeling money from from ATM's? Now, the the reason why this was sort of on my radar as a state wide issue. Is that police were saying that there was they believed that some of the victim were in other Texas cities. They said that it's like police said, it's likely the majority of victims live in other parts of Texas. But and and the victims may Bank at other businesses aside from just the vista and the capital Bank ATM, so basically police just asking folks to to take a second review your Bank account, if you didn't go to the ATM, and you see it a deposit or withdrawal, more importantly withdrawal. Then you need to call your Bank, and and and call police, and I'll I'll plug the number here because we're because we're here, you know, six seven seven five twenty. Eight fourteen at the Lubbock police investigators when we're Tom eight oh, six seven seven five two eight one four believe that gets a hold of before jury squad. This is a federal case as well. The federal federal investigators in on the both banks putting out statements saying, you know, we we know this is going on where glad that no customers from our Bank or affected, they say, and, you know, the they reminder again to double check, your your Bank statement, we all need to be a little better about doing that don't we j you know, Johnny has the text of the day. There have been some text in than we've been having a fast moving conversation punch from the Varas and now west Rappaport, the Johnny texting in in saying weren't first capital in vista Bank. The two banks that were primarily involved in rigor dykes. I think separate situations, but still another PR hit right or could it happen anywhere. Could it have happened anywhere? Well theory could have happened anywhere. I mean, these were the I guess the banks that police were sharing about what were the two Bank. We don't know the necessarily the scope of this. And and that's one unfortunate coincidence. Yeah. One unfortunate coincidence. I love the way you put it re- with. All right. So, hey, we're still looking for you to figure out how you're going to be the one band the one man band in do all the writing shooting reporting. Then check in with the program.

"Sixty percent are Jon tester style candidate lost twenty five percent to seventy five percents. But to be fair. Yeah. That wasn't just you're Bernie Sanders was in Lubbock, right? Your tester was in seven different counties. One of which was Lubbock county in that just a sliver. But the thing is is when you talk to the when you talk to the party faithful and party faithful are always the people who are going to be all the hold on. Let me just because what we're talking about his drew Landry right now. Okay. The tests candidate, right and everybody knows that that district is takes tech terrorists in it. Takes six rural counties to devastate. Right tech terraces in everybody knows anything about Lubbock. He might be listening. Suddenly tech terrorists. A lot of tech administration. A lot of tech professors much more nuanced area in just two. It's like a peace symbol. It comes down nineteenth university to Indiana intakes out like a peace symbol out on the south loop. And then takes in three counties to the west three counties to the east, right, but okay that for context go ahead to me if I'm. Lubbock county democrat. I'm not looking at sixty percent versus seventy seven because those districts are weighted in in a fashion that don't lead to the sumptious that might be being made. Well, I think that some people in Lubbock might look at this and say well are Bernie Sanders. Style candidates did so much better that where the party needs to go. I would argue that. Instead, we need to be looking at Beddoe and look at how Beto did statewide, and we need to be saying that here within the rural metropolis of of Lubbock we need to be fashioning a candidate that can win locally more in the style of a better Rourke, then perhaps a Bernie Sanders or Octavio always want call her Octavio detail because huge Houston Astros fan and Octavio doto tell with Astro. We'll see what whatever. I o c. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. So anyway, but yeah, I would like to see us move in more of a of a moderate direction. I don't think there's any secret to that. But at the same time, I do see why there are people in within my party that are more of the far end on the left. You know, a lot of people have been getting left out in this economy and. And even then it just like, I'm literally rolling my fingers through my hair is say this. Yes, you're my head saying there are classical democratic issues public education agriculture. Yeah. Medical access to health care. Right. The classical that you could run on run on strongly unabashedly in leave the Cussing to the side leaves the flag kneeling to the side and gain a larger audience. I one hundred percent agree with that get anything else we need to get in with you how I mean. I could talk to you about politics for hours. But but no there's nothing you'd have to miss a couple of your commercial breaks or something we can with. So how often do you guys meet in? If people are interested in joining in with the Lubbock county democratic process how. How can they do? So well with any to do is they need to go to our website or you can find us on Facebook Lubbock Democratic Party on Facebook. And just messages, that's easiest way we meet quarterly, plus a few more meetings throughout the year. In fact, we've got a meeting next Tuesday at seven o'clock if anybody wants to show up it's over the Democratic Party headquarters is over behind target on the south loop useless there in the little office park. That's there. So just cross to the south from the science spectrum right right right directly behind the science spectrum and fifty s fifty yard line. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Well, John Gibson. I appreciate you coming out and fill in some difficult questions. I wouldn't expect less from you. But I appreciate you doing that. Thanks for having me. I think that you're willing to talk about issues in ways that others aren't in. We appreciate your time going to get into a quick break here. About ninety seconds.

"Run campaign. He even ran ads from this radio. They never asked me for permission. But they ran ads. Yeah. My show about what a disaster. She was right. No. I saw the ads. No. But that shit that was identity politics get away from the identity politics. Let's get character, competency, and charisma. Let's get candidates that have those characteristics. And who cares if they're black white Christian, Muslim, Brown, Latino, whatever whatever is praying. At the Lubbock county or Lubbock sitting, you know, if they got character charisma incompetence more power to them. Let's get them regardless of their gender. Any of that kind of stuff? We need candidates that have those qualities, and so part of what I have to do is is I have to identify those people in our community that have those qualities that also have the same values that we have in the Democratic Party, and we need to you know, we need to be encouraging those people to get involved and growing those people within the democrat. So you just said you personally speaking is that not a feeling within the the mainstream of the Lubbock county Democratic Party. No, that's not what I'm saying. I'm saying that I'm giving my personal opinions. And I'm not speaking on behalf of the of the party proper. You've had meetings since the election. Sure is that a fair sampling of what you're saying. No, that's that's my. Personal tirade that. I just went on. Yeah. That's not. So then I would think you as chairman or saying, hey, guys, we've got to begin to appeal to the middle. We have an opportunity here. And maybe that is or is not being hurt. Lubbock is a very unique place. It's it's it's a. Lubbock presents a number of challenges. We had one candidate in the last election who was dyed in the wool Bernie Sanders. Democrat we had another candidate who was more of a Jon tester much more conservative democratic candidate.

"We have local politicians that I don't believe are in the same class as Robert Duncan. And so therefore, it is the it is incumbent upon the local Democratic Party to hold our politicians feet to the fire and say, look when you go to a league of women voters breakfast, and you say that we don't really need to pay attention to renewable energy, for instance, when for crying out loud who said that. One of our one of our three put it that. Okay. One of our three said, we don't need to be paying attention to renewable energy fossil fuels is is where we're going to focus our attention. Okay. That's fine. But that's that's just. That stupid. I mean, Lubbock has more sunshine and more wind than probably anywhere else in the country. And why are we not going to go and pay attention to renewable energy in this area? The reason why that's important is tucked any millennial, and they're going to tell you man, my future's at stake. You people aren't paying attention to global warming and my future's at stake. And I wanna party that pays attention to environmental issues. Well, democratic party's gonna be paying attention to that. And but here locally, we're going to be holding our local politicians accountable win. They don't engage in that politics. A place, for instance, and pay attention to renewable energy here. Fossil fuels. You know, if you're down in Odessa fossil fuels are important fossil fuels aren't important in Lubbock county. That's we're the we're the pump jacks going low accounting. You don't see any what you do see your win meals, and we need to be paying attention to renewable energy here in this county. So anyway, like, I say. And I think that one primary function that we need to be engaged in is holding our legislators feet to the fire and making sure that they are engaged in politics place. The other thing is is I'm a generation xer. I'm assuming you are to somewhere in the. You know, my generation is nothing more than a placeholder for the next generation the millennials are gonna come along. And what we're seeing you. You had the the professor from tech last week that was talking about southern politics. He didn't talk about generational politics. And we were in the middle of a generational shift. Where a lot of new issues are coming up with millennials that need to be addressed. And one of the things that we need to be doing here. Locally is we need to be recruiting good candidates candidates. That are have character charisma, and competency, you might have seen Claire mccaskill have the interview on. I think it was dateline couple months ago where it was like the exit interview. And and a lot of the people in Democratic Party were pooh-pooh in her responses because she's more of a conservative democrat, and she was complaining about the Democratic Party saying we pay attention too much to identity politics, which I would agree. We do we need to get away from identity politics guards. What in what regards? Do we pay too much attention identity politics? Just speaking personally and not on behalf of the party. I was a supporter of injury white. I thought it was silly for the for the powers that be done in Austin to look at the at the ticket and go. Wow, we got a bunch of white, you know, bunch of white man on the ticket. We need to go out and get somebody who isn't a white male. Well, you know, we saw what happened with Luba Valdez just got a bum. Steer ward him, the texts monthly round of the poorest run campaigns. But still within thirteen points, and I will concur with you there chairman why? Still within thirteen points. She still came within thirteen points at sixteen points. Well, no, I mean, she got trounced by thirteen points, L K. Well compared to Wendy Davis. It's pretty good. I mean, that's my standard there. That's a last serious quote unquote serious candidate. And I appreciate you corrected me..

"Have on the air with us. John Gibson who is the Lubbock county Democratic Party chairman people take offense to. Democrats being called democratic they to say, the Lubbock county democrat party talked to us about parlance there. I have no idea where that comes from people. Tell me that Rush Limbaugh is the one that started that I'm old enough. I remember the world before Rush Limbaugh. And and back whenever I was in college, the professors would complain about that sort of thing. I don't I really complain that it should be called democratic or democrat both. Okay. Because unlike what a lot of Republicans believe when you go to college, and you're in the political science department. They aren't all raving liberals, you've got conservatives in the political science departments to and I would have conservative professors that would insist that you call it democrat, and I'd have liberal professors, call it democratic you insist on just whatever comes out of my mouth grad democratic I get some of my some people will will correct me at times because I happen to make the mistake of saying. Democrat at times, but democratic Democratic Party. I I don't say democrat party at that sounds kind of silly. I would say Democratic Party. I mean, but it's it's semantic quibbles. I don't I don't get caught up in those kinds of games. Yeah. Okay. So I tried to get you caught up in that game. But you stiff arm there, John Gibson. But you are an attorney sure. Yep. Okay. What do you practice worker's comp? Okay. So guys mostly guys getting injured out in the oilfield. I've got an office. No Desa, and I spent a lot of time out. No Desa, but I love Lubbock. And this is where we raised our family, and this is where I wanna live. But yeah, the injuries the work is out in out in the oilfield. So so, but also you run out of DFW as well from time to time. Yeah, I've got an office in Fort Worth too. So okay. That to say, we don't have just some schlumpy sittin here. You know, it's not like it's not like there's a guy who just ran for Democratic Party chair who doesn't really do anything. I mean, you're an accomplish your accomplished within your profession. I'm. I'm blessed to have good clients that have given me some good cases and had some good success with that. So what's the way forward? John. Are we going to see the Democratic Party because you know, I say this all time we rave on in the program in always say, I'm non adherent. I'm not a devout adherent, I vote Republican, but I'm not a devout adherent to either party. And I think a lot of people listening program. I'm thirty nine people who are younger than me who if we go through and we look at the demographics and who's listening to the podcast. I think it'll show that the not devout adherents either in. I think a lot of people are wondering what this Lubbock county Republican party do. Now, we can critique Beto all day long. But in day moss by less than three points. Does the Lubbock county Democratic Party look that is cute run further to the left. Or run more to the middle. You know, I don't know with respect to the state party. I can tell you that here locally. I think that one of the reasons why I got elected was because I am more of a moderate. And I think that we were elected win. I think June. I think okay. So this is before all the November hullabaloo area. Yeah. But anyway, yeah. Here. Locally the problem that we have is. We've got thirty percent versus seventy percents. I mean, that's just the fact and we can slowly over time road that thirty percent or erode the seventy percent and gain numbers off the thirty percent. But what the Democratic Party here is primarily right now as a watchdog for the Republicans. And so yeah, I want to see my Republican legislators do well because I live in this community. And I like you I'm somebody who believes in the politics of place, and I want my Republican legislators to have success for the south plains. You know, Bob Duncan. I know Bob Duncan. He's a he's a good guy thought he did a really really good job state Senator is pointed at his campaign side. Yeah, you've got you've gotta sign here. There were times when I disagreed with what Senator Dunkin might have have, you know, legislated. However, I appreciated the fact that he was a statesman..

"There's things like I know that millennials like to drop f bombs right and left, and it's cool for a millennial to do that sort of thing. But you know, it doesn't cost you votes to clean up your language. You don't lose anything. But you see that more as a liability to him than the flag stands prompted when you're only talking about losing by three percent. Every little thing counts. You know, you're talking about something with the flag that might have been a a a it's one of the things that you're gonna make a break you, and I don't think you're gonna get a whole bunch of Republicans to go and say, oh, you know, what I'm gonna vote for Beto. Because now he's or because he's taking a position with the fruits of the flag that I like that's the hard core. Okay. You're talking about the interest people. I think for the interest people you get some little a lady in Arlington, Texas, for instance, who's about. To be in a nursing home. And she hears this drop an f-bomb. She may like him. She may go boy, he looks like like, you know, Bobby Kennedy, and I like that guy. But then he says something that offends her will then she's not gonna vote for it or maybe post. Yeah. Exactly. Yeah. Pose? And and that's just sit you got west of I thirty five where he struggled. I think there are some people within the Democratic Party who look at it and go, well, he didn't get enough Hispanics out. Well, okay. Yeah. That may be one factor too. There are all kinds of different things that could put him over that three percent fresh oil. No, no one single factor. Did it for him? But there are a number of things could have tweet. My view is Hettie tweaked that children fit four county tour and heady cleaned up his language a bit. It would have helped me to make the case for him with with my contact with the people that I regard well in the circles that I run if you've got somebody who's out there dropping f bombs it gets really really hard to go to church and say, hey, this is this is the guy you need to be supporting people are turned off by that. Even though they may like the message, even though they may like a lot of the things he saying it's hard to get over things like that. Yeah. So John Gibson who is the Lubbock county Democratic Party chair. He came in this role. How John e been here since ninety three. So a lot of millennials. You could say I've been here longer than you've been alive. Yeah. But you came in. Roll hal. I sometimes question that myself. I have always been politically active in the sense that in the local people here know this. I was the youngest person ever elected to a countywide office in the Harris County GOP Harris County Republican party that was back when I was in college, my wife, and I were married at the time. When did you get elected to I was the I was on the candidate selection committee. Okay. So like, we've got this guy that we recruited run for district judge there in Harris County that he went on to become attorney general, and and you may know him, Greg Abbott. He's now in the governor's office. You know, that's one of our recruits Ted POE who was recruited for run for judge. And then he was congressman Dan Crenshaw just took his place. I think I'm I'm terrible with names in Crenshaw thinks dozen the patch cabbage. Anyway, did that head sort of a falling out in the sense that? It's the same thing everywhere. I think with the GOP too far to the right? They get a little bit. Theocratic all or you know, you get into these kinds of things where it's just pretty hateful and ugly. And I didn't like that. Anyway, came up here for law school American meal, shoe gal, and she insisted that we come here for law school and bought a house. And so that tied to Lubbock to where I wasn't going to leave and my wife has happy with that. And then in the meantime, I really wasn't really excited about the Republican party here in town because it seemed to be the same way what I'd encountered in Houston and was voting democrat democratic because that was where my values seem to be going..

"In studio with us. We have John Gibson in. He is the Lubbock county democratic chairman preciado him making time to come out with us here. John gibson. Your your debut here on the show, tell us how your I'm doing good. I was on the road yesterday. And I missed your show has Daniel the millennial gut near the new digital studio. Or is he he's working on his working on? It is em- process right now some things to do in and out. Appreciate you checking on the progress of the show Daniel is in process, and if he's listening let that be motivation to Daniel that listeners are wondering what your progress is you got the ipad over there. Yeah. I need some the second generation. I have no third. I have no idea. I think it's the second. Yeah. I'm terrible with names. And so it helps if I've got notes. Yeah. You got twelve inch. That's when I run the program off of okay? Yeah. Got mon. But I got it in the a defender there. There by author box because I don't have young children or you don't have young children. I do so. Okay. So there there's a point of mutual concern. John weather people going to do let me give you my breakdown. My breakdown is that in you, disagree with me as you may. I think if Beddoe Rourke had not taken some unprompted unnecessary stances. He could have become the next you Senator now people read into in because he lost by less than three points. If he hadn't taken the stand that he did on the flag and kneeling at the flag. Then I think that he could had a lot more people come his way. But that was easy Pickens. Ted Cruz ran as ruthlessly in west Texas in rural regions of west Texas during Sunday night football, Monday night football of a a veteran who. Lost his legs stand for me. Stand. For me took a lot of cues that made me wonder is running for president as a run running for Senate. But we're guardless of that he still lost by less than three percent. I would think that as a chairman of an I'm just gonna say, you're chairman of the eleventh largest county in Texas. What your folks feel like in what you alike is the way forward, they're given the progress unprecedented progress since the state went Republican well first off I think there's a difference between what Beto did. And what some of our local candidates did. I mean, we gotta be honest locally. We didn't do probably as well as we would have wanted to given the fact that but oh made the showing he made you talked about Beddoes success or lack thereof barely missing out. I don't think there's ever any one thing that causes a politician to lose an election. There's usually multiple factors. I have complained some about this with respect to bed. Oh, I think that had he done what what's called the hero's journey. You do hauteur and fifty four county tour and got all these different counties. And then you come out of it, a new person you come out of it. And you say, well, I visited the cotton farmers in lamesa. And I learned this about. About this. And so now, here's my new policy point on this or I went to the timber farms and east, Texas, the sawmills, or whatever you come out of that. And you change your policies somewhat. You don't have to change a great deal, but you change somewhat that would have been beneficial. I don't think the the whole standing for the flag, and that sort of thing, I think that that would have cost him votes on the democratic side had he changed positions on something like that. But the chain. That's my question though. Joe that's just he didn't change. No. He took an unprompted stance. Right. And it it excited a lot of people. I don't think you can fault him for that. I think there's there's a lot of people on our side that were really invigorated by his stance. But I'm saying that had he gone and taking a taken a stance after doing his two hundred fifty four county tour where he says okay now, for instance, I'm gonna go ahead and vote for the farm Bill, even though the rest of democratic colleagues aren't vote for the farm Bill, for instance, that might have gotten him some. Or favorite west, Texas, didn't right? But he didn't. That's what I'm saying. Okay. You know, there's things like that..

"It's going to be a conversation Thursday, John Gibson, who is chairman of the Lubbock county Democratic Party gonna be joining us. What's the way forward? A lot of folks who are interested in listening to that is in John Gibson in studio. Get him just a moment. But here's one where we when the kickoff today, the atheists in the city of Lubbock gonna give the invocation. On Thursday night at the Lubbock city council meeting. This from Casey be d Lubbock read some stories. I like kacie b slant the best because it sets me up to hit some T-ball home runs here on the program. Dateline Lubbock, the Lubbock city council agenda Garner's some attention at times. But this week. It's not for what's on the agenda tool. Be speaking during the usual time of prayer known as the invocation. It was announced last fall at a local atheist group would be given would be giving the invocation sometime in January of this year. And now is set in stone that members of the atheist community of Lubbock that's an official group. I've not looked up on Facebook. But it's the atheist community. A Lubbock will be speaking before the city council. Members this Thursday. He'll be led by their communications in public relations director, Tracy benefit. Now, let me go out on a on a branch here in say, I bet she doesn't get paid very much as I say about liberals in the city Lubbock the chairman in studio may disagree with me more aborigines in Lubbock than there are real liberals. And I would think even the less atheists in Lubbock, but Tracy benefit to do the invocation. Quote. We know there's a lot of people in our group who have lost everything when they come out as atheists. So we want to de stigmatize what it means to be atheists said benefit benefits said she will use the time to invoke ideas, invoke invocation. Invoke ideas. Quote, we are most mostly going to be talking about how we need to come together. As a city, we are the friendliest city in America eight that's what's on the billboards can't descru- Benfield there. We need to think about every minority in Lubbock in thinking about how we can work together. So. So every minority is being carried under the banner of the atheists getting the I don't know what how minorities I'm sure if I reached out to a few of them. They would have a problem with being represented by the eighth easiest, but that's what benefits says we need to be thinking about every minority in Lubbock and thinking about how we can work together. The option of having an atheist give the invocation was announced back in the fall. This has had mixed reaction. Now, listen, it was announced back in the fall that the option would be open. I think. In call me whenever you may. But I think the con- the constitution of these United States gives that option I think that that was announced like way back in the eighteenth century that that option would be open quote. It doesn't really stick within the definition of an indication because it is calling to someone else. If you don't believe there is someone else than you're speaking into the air said Jeff MC Reich, pastor of wrought city church. Jeff mcbride. Following local politics as I do fancies himself on being a political thorny on all things. God centered MC right saying that they're just going to speak into mid air. But I don't know how wrong he is there than I wanna read the rest of this. And we'll break it down benefit explained that an invocation doesn't always mean. Prayer quote. Most people are familiar with a prayer being an invocation, but in invocation doesn't mean prayer those words aren't synonymous an invocation simply means to ask someone or something for help mayor Dan pope emits, it was even a little confusing for him. Quote, first question was I really don't understand who atheists pray to but the more I looked into it. My intuition is that constitution protected their rights in the end. He hopes the community finds a way to accept it quote. I think part of west Texas of part of the west Texas value system is that we are not judgmental. We take care of our neighbor. And we love our neighbor, whatever they may believe they Theus community of Lubbock will give the invocation coming up on Thursday, forty eight.

"And and this will be done the same. But you have to engineer the entire scope of you think maybe thirty six on thinking prompt thinking, probably at least thirty six million. So where would that money come from? Well, there in lies the biggest question of a mall. Now Jimmy must supposed to give money to the expo center. Must supposed to give it to Woodrow. Will you? You're not you're not going to give money to the expo center. Again, let's reiterate not one trying to get some private money out there. Now roads roads will will probably by necessity of force us to go back to the to the people of Lubbock county and say, look, here's our plan. And and I do think I think the people of Lubbock county are really good if they know that you've got a plan that you are going to work the plan, and it's going to be long term to meet the needs of Lubbock county for the next again twenty five thirty years that we're just not going to put bandaids on roads. Like we've done. We've we've just and you know, you drive down any of our county roads that have had a lot of traffic. I tell you where I live. I live in the county. I I don't live in the city of Lubbock. I in fact, I'm the first county judge in almost one hundred years to actually live outside of the city limits of loving, and so I'll I'll. Tell you county roads are very important to me because that's where I live. I live on a county road. And so I wanna make sure that our county roads are well taken care of. But I also know that roads are a vital to our economy. They are farmers. Gotta get their goods in and out of these fields. Our roads are vital to our to our education because we we've gotta get our kids to and from schools, and you know, every time we've got a bad weather day. You know, the school system comes out and says, I we're going to start late but buses can only run on the pavement, you know, things like that. So I I've got to make sure that our roads are are in good shape. Because it's it's it goes directly to our economic development. It goes to our education. It goes to. Our safety our sheriff's department, our EMS units, if they can't get to you know, you call nine one one and our in our EMS can't get to you. Because the roads in disrepair, you're going to die. And so I would definitely wanna make sure that our roads are in good shape, simply because of the public safety aspect of it. So an an, and I do think the people of Lubbock county will see it that way. They'll see that this this is this touches all of us. And it's very important for us in this county to make sure that are we are you talked about Cooper being the third fastest growing district in Texas. Lubbock county is is a high growth county as well. I think a dozen people a day. Well, we're looking at the census numbers we took the census in two thousand we're gonna take another one here in twenty twenty. And it's likely that our population has increased twenty five. Percent from from twenty two thousand two twenty twenty twenty five percent. We've got twenty five percent more people coming in and moving to end win. They're moving to Lubbock county. A many of them are moving out into our rural areas are are small towns like I and and shallow water booming. So is this in accredit, Chris with this question is this the precursor to a big roads bond package that you're gonna look at the target areas. Based on the work that the county is done in a master plan included with Cooper to put together a package for boaters to consider in the next year. Again, I if we do, and and that'll that's not just up to me, but the entire Commissioner's court. If we do it will be comprehensive..

"We've recently within the last year hired a public works director, Jennifer Davidson, and she is at an engineering she is sharp and the county the the commissioners kind of charged her with putting together a comprehensive roads plan for Lubbock Lubbock county has never had one. And you're right j. I mean, where was the master plan it didn't exist. So she has spent the last basically last six months seven months putting together a comprehensive roads plan for Lubbock county what we're looking at. And and when I say comprehensive not just talking to the the roads crews that we have that worked for love county, but also meeting with every single independent school district in Lubbock county, all of them Lubbock, ISD Cooper friendship. Shallow, water Slayton Roosevelt. Idle new deal wolf Abernathy, even because Abernethy school district. You know is in Lubbock county as well portion of it so meeting with all the the independent school districts meeting with all the communities meeting with the chamber of commerce's in in all of our small towns. So what we're looking at is putting the other and asking this question, where's the need? Where do you see? You know, you guys are the ones that are out on the roads, especially the bus driver. Vers of I they're the ones that are out on the roads every single day where our needs where do we see growth happening talking to developers? Also, you know, asking are our developers in town, where are you going to be building in the next, you know, ten fifteen years, and so she has put together, and and it it's not complete yet. But is very close to be completing and through that comprehensive rose plan, then we will have a snapshot be able to look at Lubbock county's needs for the next twenty twenty five years. And so I'm very excited about that. So the answer to your question Jay is we've never had a master plan, but we do now. And so that will give us an opportunity now as we go forward to not just piecemeal a particular road. But look, which which roads are now colle- that need to be upgraded to asphalt which asphalt roads. Need to be upgraded to? From two lanes.

But I'll say the these issues are going to be ongoing. And if you do have an issue, please con- you can contact the the bankruptcy court. And I would I would suggest you go there because this is this is going to be a long time to solve. Yeah. I think I think we're looking at probably the next at least two and a half years before they'll be able to kind of unravel all this. And then try to make some people whole I don't think anybody as an individual will ever be whole because of this. But we'll see what happens, but this is going to affect Lubbock in its economy for for a while. Good question. Eric let's move over to what BJ and others are talking about. And that's roads in Lubbock county is in I got I'm gonna speak from two different camps here. The roads in a lot of roads people complain about our in south Lubbock far south loving, we call. That's that's what people might call. It Lynn county. Well, that's where our high growth has been. And of course, you know, we're we're talking about the if you look at from school district. It's Cooper school district friendship school district those are high growth soldiers, and there's a lot of housing that's being built on. Then you've got some discrepancy from inside lupin outside the loop. I think what I hear inside the loop is where was the impact study on all these two lane roads that should be five lane roads. Even people live in central Lubbock whenever they go out far. South are amazed at these tiny two lane roads with potholes d three feet into the shoulder. But at the same time, you know, there's this, you know, we kind of have like a farmer ethic in west Texas, a lot of times of well, you decided to move there. And you knew with the roads look like that's number. One and Woodrow road comes up number one there. I wanted to get into the particulars. But on the whole where was the impact study whenever all this growth was underway. And where is a master plan in has anything changed since you've come to the hill. When I was elected, of course, finally elected after the runoff in may. And I knew that I would be the next Lubbock county judge because I was unopposed on the November ballot started meeting with with the folks in Lubbock county kinda see where we're at..

"It was in ballot land. It was in the ballots gives me maybe get grandfathered in maybe. And there there in lies. The maybe I think though going forward let's just not count on that. If that money does come to Lubbock county, and we put it toward the venue. Then maybe we can put it toward expansion or put it toward upgrades or put it toward of some. Operation, but but we're going to have to build a facility just based on the hot and you're going on the assumption of hot. So let's talk about this in in June. You get your first idea of what what the revenue could be nice correct in. So how far out, but we'll we'll get. We'll we should get actually we should get. That's when the money actually arrives in Lubbock. We should know what we're going to get probably within the next. I would say thirty days. I hope okay for the first quarter or beyond for that for that long term projection from the comptroller. This is what you're going to get for, you know, year for your one through year thirty oh, so you think by but April, you might know what that number is going to be through year thirty that's my hope. Okay in then. And then I can take that number to the bonding companies to to those who would loan. Us the money to to build the facility. Okay. So wait. We can't this is one of those projects that you can't just pays you go. You know? I mean, that's that's ridiculous to think that we could do that. I mean, we're going to have to go out and get a loan to build it. You know, we can't put two thousand two million dollars a year into it. And okay. So this year, we're going to do a two million dollar that allow us to you know, clear the lot the next year. We're going to you know, put up this beam. So no, no, we've got to go out and get alone and in order to get that loan. I've gotta know how much money I can expect. And then that will give us the opportunity then to go to the designers, the architects the land. I mean even land how much land do we need where where is the best location to put this facility in all of that land with a contingency right now. No understand. No, no. It's not.
