Tehran I'm delighted to be here into Louise. I really appreciate when our authors teach us about our own history and sometimes that history includes troubling times until this book takes us right to the heart of what termination the threat of termination losing the ability to say that we are a sovereign nation. Your characters take us to this moment in so I'm set the scene for us a little on just how much it's impacted not only the characters in the book but of course your own tribal nation. What would you like to say about termination? Well first of all I. I BELIEVE. Termination was a long time in preparation. You know when you look back through the history of what was happening just before you see that there was a big housing Bob. Postwar housing boom so termination came out of The the narrative of dispossession The government really wanted some very large stands of timber and those were on the cliff and the menominee reservations and they were among the first terminated. So there was five that were on the first light and turn on the Turtle Mountain Chippewa Band of Chippewa was one of them. So it didn't come out of nowhere. There had been some plans in the making and they got the perfect interface with two houses of Congress under Republican control and also the President Eisenhower Republicans so they had a sort of a clear shot termination at that point and the person who is the commissioner of Indian affairs at the time was a guy named Dillon s Myer and he had presided over the incarceration of Japanese American people. Right right during the war. So we have this Guy Dylan Myers. Who's all set up knowing exactly how to he? He was going to relocate everybody right that was the plan. That's that went hand in hand with relocation and then there's Arthur v Watkins who who was Passionately for termination. He had grown up on Allotment land that went into tax forfeiture and his family. Got It so he. He's the other person the main person and then Then there's the people who suddenly got this notice that your tribe is going to be terminated or emancipated. The word was you. Get your freedom. That's how it was couched. Those are the phrases. Did that make you feel it? Being compared to this that you are now mandated. You no longer have to be a native. It's it's so it's so it's so of all of our times I mean this is the language that is used when Dispossession is the real motive. flowed out some high-sounding kyw principled words and let people think I mean. They thought they were going to pull this over a native people right and not. My grandfather had an eighth grade government boarding school education but he got it immediately and he and I think most people did but the the the kind of shock is that this kind of rhetoric would come out with the expectation that native people would not even understand that there was nothing to emancipate that freedom meant freedom to lose all of their their land and their their treaty guaranteed privileges as long as the grass grows and the river. Shell slow you know that those words would be would be meaningless because Both houses of Congress had voted to abrogate treaties that have been established since the very beginning of this country
50,000 Unvaccinated Wisconsin Students Head to School Amid Measles Outbreak
"Wisconsin status the was a measles free state we talked about it a bunch last week with kids going back to school fifty thousand students were going back to school here in the state without getting their proper vaccinations before doing so that is putting the state at risk according to some leading medical professionals here in the state with their the country is seeing its worst measles outbreak in thirty years more than twelve hundred cases just this year an ascension medical group Dr Robert kit says stealthy TMJ four have enough people immunized against something it will protect those that aren't able to be immunized whether they're too young or have other medical conditions yes that was the the herd immunization it needs to be between ninety two and ninety five percent of people vaccinated only one county here in the entire state that's Menominee county has vaccination rates of satisfactory levels yeah there's a there's a phrase called the wisdom of crowds but this is demonstrating the opposite what's where when you have that herd mentality protects the people who aren't protected yet people that can't have immunizations you very young children. I understand personal freedom I understand people have very strong opinions about vaccinations but I understand as well that you put the general population of all of us especially children were young volume of children the elderly people who are sick chronically sick at high risk. is that worth the price of this personal freedom and that's the decision we're seeing other states including New York and California say you know what we can't risk are. relations general health and they're putting really strict measures in place in Wisconsin we've had some freedoms associate with people's decisions to get vaccinated or not get vaccinated I'm sorry folks at some point this is dangerous it's dangerous for the public health of our state and its citizens and at some point we have to clean this mess up and that means immunization get your kids vaccinated I understand the personal side of this I understand people have concerns. medical health professionals overwhelmingly states. these vaccinations are safe and I think that's the wisdom you have to go out that's the wisdom of the crowd in that case the crown of of medical science

"So I know that you have done work on lumberjacks, and and their place in Wisconsin life. So I was wondering if you could tell me how did lumberjack celebrate Christmas. Yeah. Well, officially you weren't allowed to have have a drink in in the camps. Although I have talked to a number of old timers who were in camps where cook would sometimes make reason Jack. Get raisins and sugar and have a little distillery. But, but you know, curse the the old time logging that was done in the late nineteenth and early decades of the twentieth century, in some cases, even beyond. But generally during that time was done had to be done in the winter. Because then the the ground would be frozen you could make ice roads, you could use sleighs, and you could you could hall that timber with with oxen or horse mostly horse teams and the northern third roughly? Yes, yes. Yeah. Pinar as it was sometimes known and my hometown rice lake was a farming and logging town, and so when I was growing up there was still a lot of Alzheimer's around who who had worked in the woods. A lot of them. Wore long underwear and wool year round. Sometimes we would have some sneeze. Some snuff tucked in their their cheek or something like that. But not when they were singing though. No, well, I don't know. But, but you know, they would go into the woods in in the in the winter and would be there really until the spring break up. Maybe if they were close to home, some might actually get away for Christmas, it's self but Saturday night was often a time when they would have a party because they wouldn't work on Sunday Sunday would be a day, maybe they do laundry, or you know, so darn your sleep sleep a little bit or something like that. Cookies. Well, the cook the cooks the cookie cooks cookies. Yeah. They'd make pie and sugar cookies and treats, yes, you need you need that to sugar burn off. But a lot of them came from traditions where there were winter customs of neighborhood, self entertainment. You know, the there were a lot of Irish in the camps. And they had the the Kaley kind of a house party where everyone was expected to sing a song or play a tune or dance a dance or play a trick or fiddle music primarily or they have other instruments to well, initially, Phil, but later on there might there might be a button accordion or even a good guitar by the early twenties, or but that was kind of at the tail end, but a lot of the singing was was acapella unaccompanied, and then fiddles for jigs, reels and types, and I've never heard of pipes in they'll lumber cash. Our monaco's. But the Irish had this Kelly tradition. There was a French tradition called the VA which fundamentally means the evening, and these were like rural traditions there were these nerve region traditions of you, the bucking it's kind of a mummy or masking tradition where you go house to house in disguise and usually end up at the last place where there might be a fiddler or something and you have a dance. And then you know for for. Menominee dif- different Elgon Korean People's. There was a tradition of winter storytelling where you could you could tell a story when the animals were hibernating or they they migrated. But there were also a lot of so-called Indian fiddlers in step dancers who played played fiddle tunes jigs reels with sometimes so called Indian tunes that he might be symmetrical. And and there were kind of relationships between some of the the step dancing or like when you process wild rice. You you have to kind of put on moccasins and there's a little pit with line with. Dear height or something. And you after the rice has been parched. You kind of dance on like stomping, the grapes, but it's kind of separates the the grains from from the chaff, and there's a kind of a djing action as well. And so I I don't want to press that point too much. But there were a lot of native step step dancers as well. So in the camps. A lot of entertainment and French French people came with traditions of improvised song as well as fiddling as well as this kind of foot foot percussion, and we'll hear some. And so let me I'll tell you a little bit about this. This is from from Barroga Michigan. And this is a field recording in the UP is in the UP. And there's a there's a French an old French settlement there and Alan Lomax went there in nineteen thirty eight and he made field recordings. And I went there about fifty some years later, I. I knew about supposedly who made the recordings although I found that Alan Lomax misspelled most are about half of their names editor at heart. So I I wrote a piece I wrote something to the local newspaper with the background information. I had and I got contacted by a bunch of people. And so I was able to go up, and I found photographs I've found the children of people who recorded I found people who had been at the recording sessions that makes thirty eight and they had never heard these recordings. So I was able to play them back and one of the people I met was was the son of the person we're gonna hear now Edward king. He was a recent emigre. Didn't didn't come through customs? There was no border wall between Canada, and he just came over over who just walked over. Because there there was work. And there he was in the camps. And this is a song. It's it's based on a well-known Quebecois song called leisure. Dhillon the New Year's day fundamentally, and he uses that tune a little bit of a theme, but he's kind of. Improvising. A saying I'm looking at your portrait. But it's winter in his damn freezing the weather. I wish I could trade for some beer. I'm like a clock with a broken dial. I don't have any money in my pocket and goodness. All the snow, and he's he's kind of. Improvising. This I think they're having a few drinks you hear some of the audience and you hear his foot foot percussion. It's a long song will listen to a little bit of it. Okay. Great..

"LLC operating through a pair of companies called Milwaukee passenger rail and transit oriented development is working on a privately funded rail system using existing rail owned by Canadian Pacific and Union Pacific freight. These are existing freight lines and bombarded is going to be operating the trains, which are just going to run on these lines. There are going to be twenty three stations. From century city. Out to north avenue. Heading to Miller Coors. Miller park the Menominee valley, the intermodal station the Milwaukee lakefront Bayview. Oklahoma avenue. And then down to the airport. We energies while we're tosa the regional medical center Elmgrove Brookefield west Alice state, fair park. New Berlin Waukesha, the Milwaukee county zoo Mayfair mall and north Wildwood tosa are all part of these stops, basically, every major location in southeast Wisconsin. And I apologize. If you live somewhere that isn't on this line. And you resent me, not calling you a major part of southeast Wisconsin. The funding is going to require one point five billion dollars to get this off the ground. Rayle investor capital is going to account for about three hundred million dollars. There will be half a billion dollars planned from real estate investment capital. Fifty five million from partner and local land contributions. Private equity will pick up thirty five million dollars. And then there will be a half a billion dollar construction loan that will be. Applied for I I'll be totally honest with you. I don't know if that loan has been applied for or approved. I have to imagine a project like this doesn't go in when it's looking for one point five billion dollars. You you never wanna say half a billion dollars is peanuts. But obviously that's something that I think the TS would be crossed. And the is would be dotted. If now this project is ready to go public. It's also going to rely on fair box advertising parking last mile connectors to turn a profit. And the real estate. I'm told is is kind of going to be separate this is sort of a separate entity. And this is why this was divvied up into two different companies. But this is it this is what conservatives have been saying if public transportation is to work if there is a market for rail. This would be the market. I mean, this is what people have been saying. If there is an appetite for light rail in southeast Wisconsin is this is going to. This is going to connect all the points of interest. The major problem with the trolley. Of course, is that it connects nothing that goes around in a little circle because that's all mayor Barrett was able to afford sixty million dollars from federal grants subsidies, whatever sixty million dollars from local taxpayers one hundred twenty million dollars that doesn't buy you an awful lot. And a lot of that cost was sunk into the construction of the line's construction of the track getting the infrastructure ready and set this is a major undertaking. So where this project thinks it can save money. And in fact, a lot of money is by using essentially leasing from Union Pacific and Canadian Pacific, these freight train lines. Let's go to Dave in Walla. Toe says we take reaction to this proposal. How are you doing? Dave good. My first thought was this is awesome. To leverage existing facilities, if a structure resources, I mean, that's that's thinking creatively. Write beautiful. I also like the idea of the real estate vision because you're you're actually going to use areas that would have very little value. Otherwise. So you know, that also is a plus the only negative I'm seen immediately is it's such a cluster when trains move westbound screwed up toes elm, girl. I mean, I would like to see maybe the government get involved in put in some bridge work. You know, maybe go over track because I got a feeling the schedule. You know, the day would be rush hours. Right. When it's at its worst. And I'll I'll say as somebody who has been late to taking his sons to violin lessons waiting at that Elmgrove trade. It was it was honest. I had to call the violin teacher and say, yeah, I'm sitting behind a train here. So I might be like that is an excellent excellent point. And what is this going to do to existing traffic patterns? I would not wanna see bridge work done. I would not wanna see because quite frankly. In the area of Uber at in the era of private car ownership being what it is. There is already a limited ridership base. There is a limited number of people that are going to take rail that are going to take trains. I I think this is going to a very specific audience here of people who work downtown. People who want to go to Miller park for a brewers game. And they're gonna take it in maybe as a novelty, they ride it in to the zoo. It isn't going to be the question. I always have. It's the same question. I've had with the trolley is they're going to be enough ridership. That's going to be able to justify the cost. And what happens if it starts operating in the red? What's going to happen? We already know that the trolley is never going to be able to exist outside of government subsidy. It's never going to be able to turn a profit on its own this project because of where it goes, obviously seems a whole lot more forward thinking and a whole lot more fiscally sound. But you have got a whole lot of cost associated with running rail that and I'll be honest with you. I've been aware of this project being in development for a couple of years now and have sort of been keeping tabs on it just kind of hearing things here. And there about what's going on. And always kind of coming back to the same question. Of ridership. Let's go to Steve in cut. You're on the Danone Donald show. Hi, steve. My understanding is death the bus of already subsidized in. My question would be what problem solved solve the buck. Doesn't already accommodates fully. That's an excellent question is this going anywhere that the Milwaukee county buses, don't yes. I mean, it is going out to Walker County. So it's going out to the city of Waukesha. It's going out to new Berlin. It's going much farther west, and I believe a bit farther north and northwest than the county bus system would go and up Steve hung up. I guess you just wanted that question answered. But that is also another question. In terms of transportation in the era of private car ownership and we had over the past five or six years a revolution. In transportation known as ridesharing where when people don't wanna take a car. I don't need to take my car to a train station. Hop on a train and then go to Miller park. I can push a button on my phone and within ten or fifteen minutes. There's going to be a car at my door delivering me right to the front gate of Miller park. That's the fundamental problem. And that's the question. I always have in my head when talking about public transportation public transportation, generally is a good idea the theory behind it is great. You've got people moving it causes less congestion on the streets. If you're a believer in manmade climate change, and that we've only got a decade to save the world. Okay. It's better to have one thing. Belching toxic fumes than a whole bunch of things on the road. But in practice rail is somewhat of a dinosaur because of the affordability of cars, and now the affordability of not having a car even in a place, like southeast Wisconsin where the population base is so spread out. This is why I was so vehemently opposed and most conservatives were so vehemently opposed to the trolley because you don't have a centrally located population to make it work. There aren't enough people living in the direct vicinity even with the proposed expansions of those tracks to ever get this thing to turn a profit. And if it's ever anything more than about a dollar, nobody's going to ride because it just isn't worth it. And that's another thing that this is going to have to consider what is the price point at which a they can turn a profit. And be ensure that ridership is strong enough that a dip in it isn't going to be calamitous. Let's talk to Todd in one. I Todd you're on the Dan O'Donnell show. Hi, Dan, appreciate through taking my call. I have a question for you. Does anybody? Remember a light rail heavy rail tracks that was fifteen twenty years ago from Watertown to downtown Milwaukee with multiple stops in between. This was tried for a period of six months it after six months the average ridership per day was only fifty people to obviously the cancel at all project. Right. I don't see any difference with what's being proposed here. That's just standard rubber tire transport couldn't improve on instantly. Well, here's the difference that I'm sure the company would say is look where was the other one going? Watertown. Right. Isn't that big population base? What's that? Multiple stops in between did where were the stops. I said where were the stops? Like, do you remember offhand? I don't I don't I only have a vague recollection of this because because it didn't last long, and it was so relatively long ago. The counter to that. And that is a legitimate concern. Todd. That's that's a huge concern. And that's the biggest concern that I have is ridership is interest is the fact that you're not just competing with the bus line. You're not just competing with me in my minivan, you're competing with Uber. You're competing with lift and you're competing in the future with any offshoot Uber actually just announced that they're going to do. They're going to do a relaunch of their self driving cars, that's something that you're going to have to contend with in the future the proliferation of self driving technology while it's probably never going to be a total takeover. There's always going to be people who enjoy driving. I'm one of them. Then again, I really really really like being on my phone all the time. So I mean, my commute I have a grand total of about a forty five minute commute because I live so close to the radio station. So I would probably never. Invest barring a move in self driving technology. But if you've got say. A forty five minute commute. You could be incredibly productive in those forty five minutes, if you're taking a self driving car, if your competition is something that you can walk into put down your briefcase take out your laptop and get forty five minutes of work done with no stops. And you go door to door through a system like Uber or your own private self driving car versus a system in which you've gotta take a car or an Uber, whatever it is to wherever your nearest station is wait for the train to arrive, then it makes several other stops along the way and a forty five minute commute door to door. Actually turns out to be more like an hour and a half. Now, I'm not saying that this is what this specific project would be. But this is the fundamental problem with mass transit, it's just quicker. It's more convenient. If you're taking your own car. I mean, that's that's the. Ultimate reality. But these companies involved in this project clearly have a belief that there's both an appetite for private rail. There is an appetite for mass transit, and that there is a market that would be able to sustain this very ambitious project. Tony in mosquito. Hi, Tony, you're on the dano Donald show.

"Call today beginning at twelve ten that's an interesting one. And I hope he doesn't I've been a big supporter Foxconn. A lot beyond Foxconn. It's happening. Across southeastern Wisconsin across the state. And I think it'd be very detrimental to the progress that we've already seen from that project and other people, disagree and. Interesting to see where the conversation goes, Jeff, Jeff, of course, noon to three right here in WTMJ before the break. I was talking about this agreement yesterday between the state governor Walker. And potentially allowing the force county pot Awada me to reduce their payments state by up to two hundred and fifty million if a new casino cuts into their tribes revenue, of course, we remember back to twenty fifteen I think the date was in January. Yeah. January twenty third governor Scott Walker officially rejected a plan by the Menominee tribe to build what would have been almost a billion dollar hard rock hotel casino Kenosha, and I was supportive of that. At the time. I think lots of folks in that area were supportive of the governor on that date said they were they were not gonna go forty and form the federal government's bureau of Indian affairs. They were not approving that application for casino. And that was after like a year and a half of negotiations trying to big to build that complex in Kenosha ten thousand jobs, potentially tourism, not to mention the great community investment. So since that time there's been a lot of behind the scenes stuff and this latest agreement again limiting that exposure to competing casinos. And and the impact on me, I think potentially, and I don't know that this will happen. And I'm not saying there's gonna be an effort to build new casino. But it does raise the eyebrows and say something seems potentially could happen there. Now any future casino proposal would need approval the president's. And of course, the incoming governor governor, Tony who will be sworn in January now on this change, Puerto Artemis attorney general Jeff Crawford said he looked forward to finalize his deal with federal regulators. Doug, Cox, chairman of the Menominee nation. So he was unfamiliar with the powder. Wadi me agreement and needed to review how it might affect any future. Manami proposal member they were the ones that were pushing for the the hotel casino project four one four seven nine nine one six twenty mortgage talking. Text line texters weighing in from the ninety two. I would absolutely welcome the Seminoles and the hard rock venture in the state of Wisconsin. Whether it's independently or through a joint venture with an incumbent try the level of professionalism efficiency and customer service. They concede those provided second to none. Hopefully Albanian the game of the current casinos in the state, and I've been a lot of these casinos probably almost all of them. And they're very well done. All the tribes. Do a great job. I think they support a lot of their their members with good well-paid jobs benefits as well. I think it provides an outlet for folks in Wisconsin with joy gambling legal gambling. And so that I have no problem with. I think there is a place for it. Given the dynamics that you're seeing in southeastern Wisconsin. The fact that folks are they were willing a few years back to endorse. This idea. Could we see a return of hard rock or another another brand? I think absolutely. I actually when I was mayor of Okri, I pitched hard rock after the governor shot this down to come back and and build a restaurant somewhere in our community. Because I thought that'd be a great first step kind of initiate the community with that brand. If you if you don't travel to Las Vegas or some of the big cities across this country. You may not know that the presence of a hard rock restaurants. And I thought, you know, that's that's not a bad day. Now a bad way to kind of introduce the concept. They never followed up on that. But I think there's interest there. Mike from Waukesha says that would not support another casino. I enjoy the occasional gambling entertainment. But too many people blow their paychecks trying to hit the jackpot, Justin. Let's see. Here's why can't read this one. But he's a very enthusiastic about a new casino. I think there's potential here. I'm just curious about the timing of it. Fact of the governor before he leaves office, and he's you know, roughly what six weeks away from. Leaving office before governor elect Tony takes over the fact that they would have got this agreement done limiting that that liability of the one tribe versus the other impacting within at least within the thirty mile range is pretty specific language. And I think it suggests that maybe just maybe something could happen here. Will it happen? I have no idea. But I know there's enough interest from people who like casinos. And if you have a mega casino of the kind that a hard rock could bring you similar to the one that we have here in Milwaukee. That's on every level. That's very similar to what you see in Las Vegas. The games offered. The the luxury of that building incredible restaurants. The now the hotels that are attached to it. And just think about the jobs from the two six two I live in Kenosha. I would be better. If if the if the government were to get another casino Cassini were robbed a virus that that's a common feeling that people have that the that the governor by not taking advantage that situation at the time. Did rob a lot of people of employment? Again, the promise was ten thousand jobs, potentially as we know with Foxconn. Those types of stories are pretty rare four one four seven nine nine one six twenty still chance to weigh in. Should we build another casino? Does this agreement by the state governor Walker? Limiting the liability to two hundred fifty million dollars. Maybe signal that there's something potentially could happen there. Of course, it has to be approved by the president and the Indian affairs. But I I think it's a good idea. More of the show next. He's pretty with you on this Wednesday. Happy hump day right here in WTMJ. He calls every Smith..
