Supreme Court Rejects Ban on Aid to Religious Schools

"So we have so much to discuss. Let's start perhaps not with January 6th and the wait has been proceeding. But with the latest ruminations, noises coming from the Supreme Court looked as if a good decision is coming out with regards to choice and a certain coach. Yes, well, there was an important case yesterday that was decided that if Maine was going to give out money to people to go to private schools, they could not say, oh, but you can't go to a religious school so that religious schools and public schools had to be treated the same to get taxpayer money given them to aid them in going to the schools. This is the last of the anti Catholicism laws that were remarked about this because this is something that maybe younger generations don't appreciate, such it was such a big issue. JFK running for president, this potential papist running the government, but it was actually a lot of state animosity to one faith in America. And that was in my faith Catholicism. I was called a macro snapper. I'm a mackerel's not typical about all three of us. In the Midwest, I mean, there was great prejudice. Nobody wanted their sons to date me. I was a Catholic. It was very. Ward is a badge of honor. Ultimately. But this is the blade amendments. Explain the blame the Middle East? Yes. James G Blaine wanted a federal amendment to say that no public funds could ever be used for anything that has religion for schools or churches. Based upon the disestablishment clause at a perversion of the disestablishment club that, for some strange reason, a Catholic school is somehow a government distortion of the founding principles of the republic. Right, nothing with it religious could get any kind of government funds. And he tried it, but it failed as a constitutional amendment. So all

Dr. Joel Zinberg: Florida Handled COVID Better Than Others

"Doctor, there was a narrative in the middle of the COVID pandemic that we kept hearing Florida and other southern states, states out west, states in the Midwest are reckless. They don't do what New York is doing. I'm a New Yorker part time. I'm a Floridian full-time, most of the time. The difference between the two states for the last couple of years has been astounding and yet when you walk around and see masks everywhere in New York and vaccine passports required to dine and all of the draconian restrictions we saw on New Yorkers come to Florida, not at all like that. Wide open. People who choose to wear masks, find wear masks, but the mandates weren't as profound as New York or California, you looked at data, you looked at Florida, New York, California, and Illinois all states with multiple urban areas, Florida, fared as well or if not better than the blue states, correct? That is correct, correct? I mean, from the start, Florida has had a relatively hands off policy. They did recommend people be careful. They did recommend masks, but they said, we're not going to mandate masks. And at one point last May, the governor desantis actually said he was going to forbid mask mandates and vaccine mandates. Yet the states like New York, Illinois, California, which were very heavy handed in their various and sundry mandates did no better than Florida. And the biggest problem is that people are not looking at the data in the correct way. They're not taking into account age differences. Because once you do, you see that Florida did as well or better than those states. In fact, far better than New York State.

Is Biden on the Verge of Losing Hispanic-Black Base?

"Interim, we've been doing some research here about the black and Hispanic voting base, there's an article here from Paul bedard, Washington secrets columnist for the Washington examiner. It's headlined. Biden on the verge of losing Hispanic black base. So there's some new polling that's out of McLaughlin and associates, which is a GOP polling firm. But they are very good at what they do. So, you know, the pieces of fairly good job here in Paul bedard is a great columnist with the examiner. But starting at a former president Trump, we started seeing this erosion of the blue collar Hispanic and black voters. Now, much ink has been spilled much cable time has been devoted to the erosion of the white working class base. This is the if you want to say it's a JD Vance voter in Ohio and West Virginia, Indiana, in the Midwest, right? These are the former union die hards that would vote Democrat, the blue dot Democrats, but they would stick with the Democrat party. We saw that erosion with Trump. Now, much has been made of that move. But what's happening right now is I would call it a tectonic political realignment and we're seeing it because blue collar working class Hispanic and black voters are starting to trick, not even trickle, but to gush says Bernard. Giving Republicans not only a good chance, but a probable, likely slam dunk chance in both the houses of both houses of Congress to quickly lock down their own ruling

Well, I don't usually quote Tupac, but I might have to drop a few bars because Tupac, I think, famously said, you know, they got money for wars, but they can't feed the poor, right? And we're in that situation right now where literally I've got friends with newborns that newborns or babies, and they can't find baby formula. They're like, you got grandma's circling, you know, hitting up targets and walmarts across the Midwest across Pennsylvania. And we can't feed our own children. We can't prevent incursions on our own southern border. But we're going to spend 40 billion of your dollars and send it overseas to a war in Eurasia where there is no American direct national interest. That's your government. Right. That's exactly right.

The Meaning of Racial, Education Equity

"I got to argue now with you about education, racial and gender equity. Let's start. What do you mean by equity Congress? And I'll let you explain it rather than quote the book. I mean, inequality of opportunity to have a dignified life. And my view of the country is one of the big problems is there's $11 trillion that has piled up in my district because of innovation, entrepreneurship, globalization, at the same time, we ship jobs, offshore, to China, millions of them. We ship jobs, south of the border, because of nafta. And a lot of communities in this country rural communities, communities in the Midwest, black and brown communities have been left out and their kids are being told to leave their hometowns, they don't have opportunity, economic opportunity. And so we've got to bring new economic opportunity to people and places left out.

"An experience where they are so. Is there a kind of a good balance. Would you say of finding and of experiencing and how much if you put it on a scale. Which would be the heavier weight so again. This goes back to educating yourself. About where your ancestors are from. Honestly i would weigh the experience a little bit heavier than going to the genealogical places. And that's because going to those places isn't going to give you that immediate connection to family. It's not going to change anything. It's not going to improve your relationship with those ancestors. It just is a place. It is a record experiencing the place where they're from learning more about the history and the culture. That's what's really going to connect you to your ancestors so explore those museums explore those locations explore the restaurants and the food and everything else and learn about where your ancestors actually came from as opposed to visiting the cemetery over and over again so enjoy your experience. It is a vacation as well as As your genealogical visit don't just feel like you have to take boxes and have fun right exactly exactly. It's it's a bad experience in the culture. Well allison again. I want to thank you so much for taking the time to talk with me so much. Good information and obviously the genealogy center at the at the allen county public library is an amazing tool for anybody who is beginning their genealogy research and a lot of it can be done online. So as you're thinking about where your family came from and where trip might take you.

"To your homeland it's natural that you're going to want to visit so we are going to Share some tips and a few things you should do before taking that big trip now back with me again. Is alison singleton. Senior librarian at the genealogy center in the allen county public library alison. Thank you again for joining me. This is going to be fun topic. I think craig thank you so much for having me so. I think the big question people have. When they're when they're planning this a genealogy tour is how much information do. I really need before i go. You need a little bit. Because when you're doing a genealogy trip back to the home country you really want to know where your ancestors are from so you need to actually be able to find that ancestral village or town or maybe even the home and in order to do that. You have to exhaust all the resources in the united states before you can jump the pond. Otherwise you're just gonna be wandering around aimlessly going while. I think they're from here. That is so so true. And you say find everything you can locally or in the united states before you go back so are you recommending that when you plan that trip to you know to europe or wherever it is you're going that you make contact with the local genealogist or historian and make plans to meet with them and maybe get some of their services before you really start to explore one hundred percent always use the knowledge base of experts when you're doing research like this otherwise you can get frustrated very quickly and what is the best way to find those local historians because so i know a lot about ireland and i know that in dublin. They have a family history centre attached to the epic immigration museum. So that's that's kind of an easy one to find but when you're going out from there say to a county or to a city or in a totally different country how do you find those historians genealogists those connections to help you with your next steps. A great resource is actually family. Search if you get onto their research wicky and look at the specific location. You're going to. They have a list of archives and libraries. So i would start there another thing that might sound crazy but get on facebook find out what research groups are in existence and there are some for every nationality and ask ask what other people are using utilize the resources people recommend. And i think you'll be happy with those. The facebook tip is an incredible. Incredible tip I i guess that's not even something. I would have thought of and reaching out to the people who know And getting that information. I think that you know in our conversation that we had in the last episode and going back to the conversation. I had with kurt earlier. It's very much ask questions. Talk to people. Find the people who know. Find the people on the ground and it seems that that that kind of is a theme. That goes clue through genealogy one hundred percent it's not a solitary hobby or occupation. It's very much about communicating with others and learning what you can from others credible now when you do take that trip what kind of documentation should you take along with you. Obviously you know you're you're going to be smart about it. You're not going to carry all the papers you're going to have it most likely in the cloud or pdf's on a computer or something. But what should you make sure you have. You should make sure that you have the immigration information if you can get your hands on it and then any of the documentation that gives the specific locations in the home country that you're looking for because sometimes these would would be maybe in different languages or Give a clue that. Maybe you missed that a local might actually see so. That's why you wanna have those documents. Things that can directly relate you back to that home country and putting it in the cloud or having on a computer is one hundred percent the best idea. If you're going to take a paper document take a photocopy. Do not take an original. I can't even imagine because you and if you do take the original. Don't check it. Oh heavens to betsy now for sure now. It's really easy to build up that ancestral visit in your mind to to going back to where your ancestors came from. You're going to feel an immediate connection. It's going to be amazing. And then sometimes it doesn't work out the way you imagine it to. So how do you keep from being disappointed. What tips can you give to people to to keep them. Maybe a little more grounded on their expectations. So they don't come away from a trip disappointed. Go into it expecting to learn and to educate yourself about the culture and about where your family came from not to feel that connection not to immediately go to a place and say this is where my family was and get those goosebumps whatever else. It's about having expectation of it being a educational experience as opposed to. I guess a soul experience i. It's something that you want to learn more about the culture and connect that way It it's very much one of those things where you don't want to really have high expectations if you have that moment where you got goosebumps cool but don't expect it very good advice and i think another thing when i've worked with people especially going to ireland A lot of their trip focuses on finding this finding that we you know on on monday. We're going to find the graves and on tuesday. We're going to find the house none wednesday. We're going to find this. And i feel like a lot of people when they plan at least their first genealogical trip. They're so focused on the find the find the find that they don't take the time to really learn.

Brightened <SpeakerChange> groom <Silence> senate juice. <Speech_Male> It's <Speech_Male> really interesting <Speech_Male> because quite <Speech_Male> often it <Speech_Male> is the nest <Speech_Male> which is near there. <Speech_Male> Close to the wedding <Speech_Male> venue. But <Speech_Male> it's a one room <Speech_Male> with a bathroom <Speech_Male> and <Speech_Male> sleeps to <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> the castle's really <Silence> popular. <Speech_Male> <SpeakerChange> People <Speech_Male> love their castle <Silence> line. <Speech_Male> But <Speech_Male> it really.

No i like that <Speech_Male> one. The best <Speech_Male> you know so it just <Speech_Male> it just <SpeakerChange> you.

"The midwest podcast this month on the podcast we are taking in the taste of the mid west and a really great way to do that is by following a food trail today. My guest tracy cocker the vice president of the butler county. Visitors bureau is also one of the creators of ohio's butler county donut trail. So that sounds like a really sweet trail to follow and something that is really. I don't know something to kind of take that. I don't know that the long tedium may be out of a road trip across ohio. Because it's a big state so tracy thank you so much for joining me today. Thanks for having me. I'm excited to talk donuts. How i think everybody's excited to hear about donuts as well. I don't think there's another food that that maybe makes people smile as much as a donut. I i don't know what it is about. It think it's the different variety and and all the unique things that people are doing with donuts. Now yeah. I always tell people that. A donut is a unexpected canvas for creativity. You can do all kinds of flavors colors type styles into donut in that variety is always fun is and you never know what you will discover so for people who aren't familiar with the state of ohio where is butler county located. Baller county is in south west. Ohio just between cincinnati and dayton so. We often say were the cream in the oreo cookie between those two areas. So it's a large county but we have lots of things to explore including donuts on fun. So where did the idea of a donut trail come from. Yes so that visitors bureau here. We're always looking for unique and interesting ways to highlight the small businesses of our community and oh six years ago more than six years ago. Now we had a little internal brainstorm and we realized we have so many artisan donut stores which is really uncommon. Because these are like small family owned places that are baking donuts in the night..

That was on tuesday and then we'll have the news boys on wednesday wednesdays going to be more proficient concert with adam meiji and then we have thirty eight special on a thursday chris janson on friday they kind of are one were headliners is going to be. Nellie was willie. Jones nelly nelly concerts can be kind of interesting. Two o'clock evenings can be two o'clock. That will jones will follow as full concert after that and then we hope those people who come for the nelly concert will stay on the fairgrounds because we have on our free stage We have a chase beckham. and so we're we're really excited about the land. We think that saturday is going to be one of the biggest saturday's we've ever had 'cause you start with entertainment at two o'clock and you don't finish up until seven thirty at the free stage was chased back so it's really exciting and then on sunday. I don't wanna send solo sewer short but on sunday. We have darcy lynn farmer. The ventriloquist will be here sunday. That's going to be an afternoon. Show coming family. Show three o'clock in the afternoon really good interest in that to read all the tickets. We just we're able to take the accident. We had booked for twenty twenty and them all over so we ray will now some people other taking their money back. Some people want to keep your tickets so it really had a jump. Start on selling tickets because some people just want those checks and keep them and it really roll forward nicely so so. We're very excited about the entertainment. All we have a lot of things happening are free Free stage two. We have a hypnotist ron. Diamond getting all sorts of other free events on stage the people's bank and trust for stage. That's fun i i like that. There's a mix of of the the paid. You know kind of marquee events but then you have the entertainment around the fairgrounds as well. Now when you're thinking about things to do at the fair obviously that comes a lot of walking a lot of eating what other what other things are. People going to find within the state fair obviously a lot of commerce. Maybe lots of of things to learn about Things like that we we call it and it's a huge event for for the state of kansas We call it a kansas largest classroom. We end up having twenty fourteen thousand students on on the fairgrounds and they can learn from everything about the go to the birthing center that we have They can go to the dairy parlor. They can look at our pollinator gardens all sorts of things as a great learning setting in environment and we have now designated building for education center. And we think there's just gonna be all sorts of exciting things happening there of. We always have new competitions twenty nineteen. We had a butter sculpting contest and that proved to be very bored. I guess people get a pound of butter stuff out of a merger. Exactly how that works and we also have a beer brewing contest as well which we have to have an advanced so those are things that again we had between nineteen people always fascinated with the large draft horses and we'll have a draft horse parade while also have some activities involving the draft horses barrel racing in that gun thing. So that's going to be really unique. And i think that's going to have appeal to him to a certain part of our audience and then of course we have to Kind of our light days and so what we've done is is four dollars after four on tuesday and thursday if you wanna come out after school or bring your family out after school. Four bucks invasion. We think that's going to be very important. Rosza gonna do some. We'd not have done before as a pub crawl Thursday evening abandoned. They'll be able to hit the various of beer vendors and try some craft roosevelt author. So it's fun thing. Of course every event like that needs of ascott. We've got ike the bison our new mascot for the kansas state sphere fear and traveling around the state trying to encourage people to come to the state fair. But i the vice is going to be new. Hope y'all all over the the Real excited about that as well. so again there's countless things to do at the kansas state fear. I think i'm just listening to you. Talk one of the things that has really struck me is the kansas has more. I i wanna say almost western culture to the state fair then you find in fairs that are further to the east you. You mentioned You know bulls and bull riding your vice in and a few other things that just really really struck me as having kind of that wild west feel to it and i think that that probably makes the kansas state fair quite unique for the midwest as well i certainly are are resurrected cultural and we have we draw heavily from the western two-thirds of the state to the state fair so there's a lot of agricultural interests. There's you again you all sorts of things. You have the governor's cookie jar. Somebody cookies ins judge being the best and we give that to the governor and then there's largest watermelon largest pumpkin. All those kinds of things. Roy celebrate celebrate. Kansas agriculture. Things have changed a bit in kansas. I'm sure they have every place. One time. He saw the state fair really signifying the end of the the fall harvest but a fall harvest continues through october pre planning of begins in october. So it's kind of a pause maybe between the.

So the indiana state fair. Is you know it's kind of that contamination of the year right where things are are starting to wind down from summer and we're ready to flow into the fall but the thing that i noticed when i was doing my state research is that the indiana state spare lasts a good week longer than most other state fairs in the mid west and i thought that was a really interesting. Is there a reason for that. Well for the past few years. We've been a seventeen day fair. We have increased it to eighteen days. So it's not that much longer. Because we are closed mondays and tuesdays. This is a new fare format for us this year We added an extra weekend on the front end of our schedule and that was purposefully. We wanted to kind of spread out attendance and we know that people are most likely to attend Over the course of a long weekend so we added that we can For guests to enhance their experience. It also allows us to kind of refresh the campus on mondays and tuesdays at some new programming turnover. And just keep everything fresh and exciting. Some folks can come back and.

You don't of course you gotta play up on the plan on the dairyland surf classic which they started in nineteen eighty eight So you know through word of mouth and the you know the surfers kind of have their own thing and they go back and forth between florida and california and going to mexico and you really build up the reputation while the more they started talking about it and the more they got to know all the other surfers and surfers are tight. Knit communities stick together. They started bringing people. Here's kind of labor day weekend in september. let's kind of like unofficial gathering so people started showing up. they'd horsemen house. They'd sleep on their couch.

You'll also find what my family enjoys. All these ledges all these cliffs nelson kennedy ledges state park in the northeast side of the state has where you can walk through caverns and there's rock formations. That are four or five stories tall. And you're going through on top of below just incredible experience and that's nelson kennedy ledges state park in northeast ohio And then when you get out into the northwest side of the state. It's a much ladder area. And it's a long way kyrie when you get to the real north toledo. The industrial area on mommy bay state park is incredible and known for birdwatching. Especially this time year. The migration of birds many of them that are going to get into they stop along lake erie on the ohio side before making that flight over the laken people come from all the to watch warblers and another incredible birds right there. Mommy bay state park now. One thing that people might not associate with ohio but that you have plenty of is islands. We do the the lake. Erie lens to us a fun. Very fun island. That's known for its restaurants and his live music. Aken a good time. And that's put in bay on south bass island then. There's also a very a little more casual a very enjoyable kelley's island that has Some credible beaches right people don't often think about islands and beaches in ohio but Right there on long lake erie and you can take.

"Back over my own. Kansas travels and looking at the tour guide the travel guide and things like that. It made me realize how much i still haven't experienced in kansas. And how much. I really need to get back there but if people are thinking about planning a trip to kansas in twenty twenty one what are maybe three highlights of a that are coming up for this year. That maybe they should consider. I'd say the twentieth anniversary of the santa fe trails happening here in twenty twenty one. Great stop is mahaffey stage Stop in historic site which is in olathe kansas. It's actually the only open remaining stage coach. Stop from the santa fe trail. You're going to go there. You can see experience. What life was like on the santa fe trail and stagecoach travel also council grove which is in the flint hills. As they they have great santa fe trail history. There there they have some festivals going on One of them. I think start july sixteen through the seventeen. There's a gunfight that'll be happening in some reenactments there'll be some famous old west folks wandering through town. There's going to be live. Music and food great bend. Kansas also has many events planned. there's actually a website. It's like two hundred santa fe trail anniversary. Kansas is where you can see it. Just a slew of events happening across the state exciting. Yes i know you said name. A few another one would be medicine. Lodge peace treaty. This is a festival that happens every three years in a huge huge event so eh taught First starts off with this large reenactment. Like i say largely not meant like it's a large professional reenactment It starts off You know it has the tribal indians. Kinda has some lewis and clark a reenactment parts. There's some wagon. Travel there some cavalry rescues. But then also just a part of the three day event. There's an intertribal powell. There's education about native americans in the plains. Tribes there's rodeo. There's parades every morning. I mean this town really puts on a big show and that was in a double check the dates on that one. That one is september. Twenty four th through the twenty six and Happens in medicine lodge. Which is in the beautiful gypsum hills of kansas. And if i can name one more Kansas is home to the walnut valley. Bluegrass music festival. It happens in winfield. Kansas in it is the third weekend in september. And i can tell you this event you have generations four generations that have gone to this festival and it is centered around bluegrass. But there's a lot of people that have gone there like. I'm not the biggest bluegrass fan. I go for the experience. There's people that camp out a month in advance or month total before the event they have this thing called the land rush in. That's when everybody is rushing to the campgrounds and throughout the day you have your main stages you also have. It's also the world championship of flat guitar. Picking that happens there but also the magic comes at night when people are being in you. Have these set campgrounds. They'll have their names and they all have little stages on and you can see a merging bluegrass artists. It can be four in the morning and you might see a twelve year old boy picking his heart out there like. Oh my gosh. I can't believe i'm experiencing this and then winfield itself is fun There's a bunch of trails and outdoor activities to do while you're there for the festival Cool foodi stops. There's a cool winery. That also has live music on the weekends. So those would be my top three for twenty twenty one and you're you're looking to travel to kansas those all just sound credible. I don't know it again..

"Like susan. A you like state park. That is a little more difficult to get to and probably not as many hiking trails as i task. Yeah so it's actually a national park. It's voyageurs national. Park is kind of unique because actually over. A third of the park is only accessible by water. So you can paddle or rent a boat or bring your own boat. But it's really meant to be explored by water It's kind of located central minnesota along the border with canada. So it's also true northwards experience that you that you wanna have here in minnesota. That's you know that's one of those places. I think that people don't realize number one how vast it is and number two how dark it can get both voyagers national park and the boundary waters canoe area are certified as international dark sky places. And that's that's a hard certification to get because we have so much ambient light from so many things. And i find that to be really exciting. Minnesota has not one but two dark sky areas a huge designation for those both to cheese relating for stargazers or if you want to chase the northern lights. It's a great opportunity here in minnesota speaking of chasing the northern lights. How often do those show up. And how north do you actually have to be to see them optimally. Yes so you can travel to norway or alaska or any of those places. We also have the northern lights here in minnesota from between around october to march. And you look has to be on your side of the start. The skies have to be clear but really the northern border lung canada up the gun flint trail near grand marais cook county. Also were grandma says and then voyagers national park in the boundary. Waters are all airings. If you're lucky you can chase them and hopefully get a glimpse here in minnesota and minnesota has something that most people probably know about with national parks and that's like a stamping system or something like that right. Can you tell us a little bit about the minnesota state park club. The passport club is an awesome way to explore. We have seventy five state parks and recreation areas. I've been fortunate to live in a number of different states than i can say that minnesota state parks or some of the best that i've experienced in so you earn a stamp at each of the different perks that you visit kind of forces you to try out some new parks or explore new areas and bonus you earn free nights of camping as you hit milestones along spelling your passport so it's just a really fun way to get out and exploit the state that is really i didn't know about the three campaign. Minnesota also has some really great off..

alaska norway canada Minnesota seventy five state parks march both each two dark sky areas three campaign grand marais cook county third park club two minnesota one of those northern border central around october one
