April 30 Mike Freeman

"It from the good Thursday morning northern Colorado. Thanks for joining us here on Noko. Now I am. Tanner swint excited to be with you for another edition of now presented by PD energy here on thirteen ten kfi. Gay Ca Patrick doing the production work back there behind the bulletproof glass We've got a fun show in store for us here. Today we will talk with Troy Coverdale as always get the latest on some of the news around cove nineteen and just some of the latest news around Northern Colorado. And then we will talk with Weld County Commissioner Chairman Mike Freeman at nine thirty five this morning. That will be a fun conversation. And the one that we will look a week in review of the announcement of safer at work guidelines put into place by the commissioners What let's just review what happened and how it went down. And and what? His thoughts were of of how things Win about and how things played out for him. We'll talk with county commissioner again. Mike Freeman at nine thirty five. Then we'll get the headline that caught my eye in the last segment And work our way through that in speaking with a couple of business owners. Here in the area You know with this the safer at work guideline and this is where I wanNA talk with commissioner framing There's there has been confusion because there was a lot of support behind it. I think that a lot of business owners were in favor of the safer work Guideline put into place and saying okay. Yes why it's time we want open back up. We can do this safely if if other businesses can operate safely. We want to be able to have that chance as well. So a lot of support behind that but these business owners did express some frustration about the possibility of not enough guideline and not not enough idea of okay for restaurants and bars. What what what was that. What does that mean? The churches could churches start to gather in Weld County. There was just some things that these again. These are business owners here in northern Colorado. That they thought were maybe a little bit vague. So we're going to talk with Commissioner Freeman about that. I know that there have been There has been some businesses that went ahead and did open And those businesses. So let me let me get. This pulled up here This was out of the the Greeley Tribune And talking about the barbershop and this is of course the one the story that we talked about. Oh just a couple of days ago that was going to open on Monday The counter the the state called in the county called and then they called Dora and said it was okay to go. They were ready to. They were okay to to get up and going. They served about forty people on Monday. The barbershop did of course. If you're not familiar they are allowed to or they've got liquor license as well as a as well as their hair. Cutting license obviously and they opened up doors. Said Yep you got the go-ahead from you get the go ahead from the county go ahead. You're good to go this again. This story out of the Greeley Tribune Bobby Fernandez Hand Company. Greeley's the barbershop. A subject of national attention Monday issued cease and desist order Tuesday. I know there was some issues with that headline but the the fact of the matter is that that cease and desist order was not put in place because they were operating under the safer at work guidelines the cease and desist order was put in place because one of their licenses had expired They expired back in twenty nineteen and they had not had it up and ready to go again. And because of that that was they were issued a cease and desist. It was again not because of it was not because of the actual working of safer at work under the safer at work guidelines. It was because they had a they had a license that expired and so I know that was the cause of a lot of confusion. That's obviously one of the one of the main points in one of the main cases that we pointed to actually throughout this about the confusion between safer at work and safer at home But again just want to clear that up that cease and desist order issued by the state regular rating board Was because they found it an expired business license not because they were working under the safer at work guidelines in when when governor polls talks about the possibility of of taking licenses its Dora has ruled that. That's not the case. Dora has ruled that they will be you. You have the right to operate. Under under the county with those guidelines put into place by the county commissioners at this place at this moment in time. That's why you see Brighton Trying to fall into the weld county areas and we'll get an update on on if that took place we'll get an update along with some other things when we talked to troy coverdale again.

We're here with you. Thirteen ten K of K and thirteen ten K. dot com whole sports story in northern Colorado state in the country tune into the whole show weekdays noon to two and thirteen ten. Kfi Hey nine sixteen the time here on no cone. Al Presented by PVC energy. Thanks for joining me again. I M Tanner. Schwendt and really excited about the show today. We've got some of course continuing news and and again just to throw out there as we progress and as we get out of the the days of cove nineteen which we're approaching you know don't win it is but we are approaching. We're getting closer to that day. We're going to continue to provide news updates information on sports Information on on everything northern Colorado and we look forward to doing that so You know with the press conferences not coming every single day not going to have to see my face every single day as well and I know. A lot of people are excited about that joining me now. Up on the hotline is our news and Sports. Director Troy Cove and Troy We heard from the governor on Monday that we weren't going to have a press conferences every single day and then he had a media breakdown yesterday. It did because he he wanted to get out the Materials regarding increases in testing and the preparations that are underway to bring testing to all sixty four counties. And as of right now the plan is that or at least. The early portion of this plan that has gone forward would get materials into forty two of the counties statewide so that improved testing increased. Testing numbers can be picked up aiming for between essentially seven thousand and ten thousand tests per gay is what the governor is hoping to have take place in. Believe the number that we've been operating at has been around that twenty two hundred to two thousand seven hundred days at correct. Roughly three thousand. Yeah As as you know that that speaks to how few tests have been available for one keeping in mind that the state received a shipment of nearly half a million tests from South Korea here recently. So that's what's helping put this plan in into action to be able to at least ramp up. The testing for a majority of the counties across the state would have to imagine what county is going to be near top of the list to receive those tests With big plants. I absolutely as the outbreak there continues to have been the one that is the largest in the state at this point but there are other outbreaks at varying facilities throughout the region as well that are worth noting there have been cases at Aurora organic dairy that we didn't know about. Letrino foods reporting eighty employees tested positive for corona virus at the Greeley Facility as they get ready to reopen a portion of their Fort Morgan one while dealing with an outbreak. There as well. So we've learned that basically if it's a food production You're likely looking at their being. A number of cases unfortunately our friends a little further east of us down in Sterling but the correctional facility down there having an outbreak of their own. That would be the second largest outbreak in the state right now behind Jay BS as well over two hundred cases there as well and by the time you factor staff as well as inmates sets a a huge outbreak again gets into that discussion that we've had about line forcement and unfortunately the efficiency with which prisons and jails are are put together. That efficiency doesn't work in times of a virus moving through your population. I and that's the thing troy to consider. Maybe this is just where I stay on this but when I think outbreak and I think a lot of people think outbreak those are the type of numbers you expect to hear right. But the outbreak has been defined by governor polices two or more cases so with that being said landmark. There's Larimer county nursing home starting to see a little bit you know. And they've had seven residents and three employees testing positive With with one death so when we hear outbreak I mean it's still a varying level of of Number of cases. It could be from to all the way to like you said over two hundred. I think part of what plays into that. Tanner is that the expectation that there are a symptomatic carriers and so you don't know how many people really truly are carrying the virus or do have the virus and so it's easier to go ahead and label outbreak for a lowest number in a facility. Like that. Because you have the expectation that there are actually more cases that you don't know about and we continue our conversation here with Troy Coverdale the news and sports director here on Kfi and with that Troy it's another headline that seeing second wave of cove in Nineteen Hits. The a weld county lamb processing plant so again starting to see some of those Those repeated outbreaks repeated areas of concern with with the food processing exactly and one of the things that you have to think through with. All of this is an expectation for is that we are going to see cases on the climb once again even though we have started to move towards the safer at home or safer at work processes that people have put in place keeping in mind. We're now just a day away from retail being able to fully open again in the state and you know that the trends will be that there will be more infections. Start to get reported once again. Just as a matter of course in terms of In terms of the virus rebound effect I saw yesterday a headline where one of the Japanese islands after feeling like that they had it under control is seeing that second wave taking place now and it's worse than what the I was and so we've got plenty to watch for coming up here over the next few weeks and months still because of those concerns over that second process that second wave coming through right and when you talk about retail being able to fully open still with those guidelines is still with those social distancing guidelines that will open backup the in store shopping correct. That is correct. Yes yeah so. We're we're going to see that and again still gonNA be trying to keep the the number of people under ten and and Troy. No this is something that we've talked about in an excuse me. We had a lot of people Asking questions a lot of business owners asking questions about what guidelines they fall under and then the bar the barbershop it gets issued a cease and desist and it had nothing to do with the fact that they were operating. No well. It happened under the safer at work. Guidelines right exactly. Yeah had everything to do with a failure to maintain their business license through the state. And that's just that's miscue that if you're in a situation where you're looking to reopen it at this time and you're being highlighted because of your attempts to reopen in the midst of the political battle. That is going on between. Weld County and the governor ducks in a row. You you might want to have everything ready exactly. You might want to double check your own materials and make sure that you're ready for the long haul because something like that will come out and it caught him on Tuesday. Have you seen troy? Have you seen any other businesses That are opening or or have opened under these safer and guidelines or. Have you seen really? They're taking this week to Kinda ramp-up and then Get opened up a little bit later. On as we see more guidelines come out with the safer at work Policies as well Karl more down at William. More jewelers is Basically having one on one appointments right now that would be one that has re opened but is working at really limiting When people go into the store and and can take advantage. I had a chiropractors appointment yesterday. There's there's another good one for you because that was had been for the most part closed during the course of This stretch but much different situation walking in there yesterday than the norm as so you know there are businesses that are slowly getting back to at least operating just being very quiet about it in some ways and trying to at least ramp up some of what they can get going here on the early side talking with Troy Coverdale our news and sports director. And that's kind of what I'm hearing to troy is that They're waiting for more information. Because there's there's guidelines put into place but they're not very specific they were pretty vague and I think that's led people to again that confusion that we talked about. They're kind of waiting for some more information on the state level. Wouldn't you say it's pretty much set? The plan is in motion. This is what we're GONNA see until at least probably may fifteenth where maybe reexamining the potential for restaurants open and the idea being is that you ramp it up piece by piece and allow for a slow ramp to be able to manage and hope that that second wave then doesn't grow to a point that it becomes a stretch where you have to again shut things down and so doing so piece by piece the realization that you're operating on about a two week stretch every time that you wanna open something up more in depth a allows for you to at least try to judge the effects of what you've done this last time and and make sure that you're ready to go for that next one conversation that I had with with a restaurant owner here in north and Noko. They said even if they're able to open up to fifteen tables probably not even worth turning the lights back on at this point. And that's the key point that. I think a lot of people don't understand is that Y'All it's it's actually more beneficial to them from a financial standpoint to be closed when you are looking at the possibilities of having to only operate on a partial dining room opening because the numbers don't add up your employees outlay becomes more than what you are bringing in and it's an inefficient model especially when we're talking about a restaurant restaurants which are low margin to begin with. Yeah four to five percent on on that margin is what I have been hearing from some of these people that I've been talking with a lot of questions still to be answered in. It is not like as soon as they lifted opening. We start to be able to have a couple of tables. We're still probably not going to see a lot of these Restaurants opened another hard hit area. His breweries local breweries as well and I know that northern Colorado we talked about it on Newstalk last night. I know northern Colorado has a ton of those in our backyard and I think at last seen a closer to sixty percent of local burris are not gonNA survive this wave so it's going to be impacting people for a long time down the road. The brewers association laying off a lot of it staff yesterday just as a nother point That you're seeing with with the smaller craft breweries and the and the oversight that goes into those or in this case association just not able to maintain what their employee base was because of the fact that that the craft brewers aren't able to get going and when they're not going there association suffers as well. Yeah there's no doubt about that. Troy wanted to check in back on a national news that we we talked about yesterday. We were looking for an update on one of the few. You've got it in the case of the packing houses that we've been talking about and the executive order from President Trump. Did we get any clarification? Did we get another executive order coming down the pipeline saying that they will be staying open? No we have not actually rather surprising because there were rumors that there would be a second e o coming yesterday but it did not happen so as of right now the the executive order that is in place is more about guidance than it is about actually pushing the meatpackers to remain open which would be of course a huge negative for the employees there and for the moment it is just basically the same but oh here's some extra guidance thrown in. Yeah well I think that those businesses will probably take those precautions With their employees and continue to do what they can to keep those doors open for that bottom line is well troy any other news. Stories that we We missed that. We need to get out there now as of right now. White House doesn't have anything on the docket today will of course Monitor that Governor pulled US also not slated to hold a presser today Mike Tomorrow. We'll wait and see since tomorrow is again one of those dates that as we get closer and closer is a look at a reopen true. What are we going to do ourselves? We got no press conferences to watch. Why now we're going to welcome that with a With US I. Let's just say that I've got another zoom meeting sitting here in front of me to get involved with here and once we wrap up here we go all right. Troy appreciate your time this morning. We'll talk with you tomorrow and enjoy the press conferences yet. Thank you appreciate it. Thanks for coverdells news and Sports Director. appreciate his time this morning and those are those are conversations that are happening and those are decisions that business owners are going to be making and this next guy that we're going to talk to said plain and simple that he was not picking winners or losers he wanted to be able to open it back up and allow businesses that opportunity. But we'll talk more about. Are there more specific guidelines coming down what his takeaways a weakened review of the safer at work policies? WanNa say thanks to Jeanine Crop Insurance and Jeanine insurance up in old you WanNa talk to people who are local.

I'm Tanner's went very excited to have our next guest joining us and it's been a crazy week for a lot of people and I know he's one of them joining me. Now is a county commissioner chairman. Mike Freeman Mike. Thanks for taking time. It's been a week since the announcement of the safer at work policies or guidelines rather We can review what take me through. What the ensuing week has been like For you as county commissioner. You know it's it's been busy week and really what we're focusing on right now is Looking where we're going to be next week More counties is getting everything in place. All of our lobbies. We'll be opening on Monday. I'm obviously on a limited basis but lobbies. We'll be opening on Monday We've been doing. We've been doing every Wednesday. We've been after a board meeting. We've been live streaming up at the ability to to have a conversation with the public and so beginning next week on Monday with our lobbying open. We'll be we'll be going back to board games where the public can come into our boardrooms with You know we'll be practiced physical distancing and all that. We'll be doing public input on Monday Wednesday again Li- back back. You know boardrooms on the other thing that we're doing is Next Monday from five to six or we're going to be doing a town hall meeting with the Commissioner's To where people can They're sending out numbers kind of like like what Cory Gardner does or Michael Bennett or whatever regular townhall meeting where where citizens throughout well county will have the opportunity to to Listen updates on what's going on in the county and be able to call in with questions and so You we're just kinda continuing to move forward as A lot of the state reopens To tomorrow and Monday with with what with what you know even with the safer at home type thing you know the majority of the businesses not full bore not like they were February first but slowly get back to business not business as usual but but start to get back to work and not only here in Colorado but across the nation. You're seeing businesses began to reopen. And I think that's the place that we need to be and Mike those with so much confusion going around right now. I mean transparency is key. It sounds like you're providing I would have to assume commissioner that one of the questions that you're GonNa get is they're going to be more specific guidelines coming from the safer at work guidelines a couple of questions that I got from from some business owners. Some people around northern Colorado was We'll what about restaurants can they have people sitting down in them and then the other big one that I got was about churches and could they start to gather again have there. Have you guys put into place more specific guidelines for for those areas? Well you know I think I think the guidelines or the gathering guidelines are GonNa Continue. I mean you can't really have groups of more than ten people You know if you've got a big enough area you know it's Kinda like Safeway or whatever else if you've got if you've got a spot where you can have groups that are ten people or less You know or or smaller. I mean I think people should have can still be able to go to church praying. You're just not gonna be able to have a full church. Kinda like I think the last thing you're going to see come back in this thing is going to be stadiums and and those kinds of things. I know the Greeley stampede which doesn't have anything to do with US but Really Independent stampede has has cancelled for this year I think that I heard they were still gonNA do a fireworks. Show just not open to the public and so you're the things that are. GonNa be slow coming back or the ones that are involved. Big groups they groups together. The other thing that I see which I'm really excited to see the number of school districts including My son the tribune that Are Looking at what they're gonNA do for graduations. I think there's going to be a lot of innovative ideas out there. I know windsors is kind of planning. I thought district six and put together what they're doing for graduations For the for the Public School. I haven't seen anything on their charter schools yet like university in Frontier Academy. But I'm sure they'll get those in place I know windsors got something planned. I think a number of these districts are going to be starting to look at that being able to maybe bring the kids and keep the kids separate apart and be able to do graduation ceremony. So I think it's going to be a slow roll out on faith. You know once again as we go back from very beginning of this thing and you know I think I've said it all continue to say you know well. County didn't close businesses and we're not opening businesses all we did was put out some guidelines If people things and go there they need to follow guidelines fall. The governor's guideline part of the reason. The governor's putting out specific guidelines on on all these things that I think the goop gathering ones. You know that's something that doesn't make a lot of sense at this point to have huge groups getting together. I think only place you're seeing the huge groups get together as all these people that are protesting across the country. And I see there's another protests going to be in Denver today I believe maybe it's tomorrow You know protesting. Those people need to also remember. They should be physical distance. And then I don't really think they're doing a good job at that. Weld County Commissioner chairman. Mike Freeman a week after the safer at work guidelines were put into place in and wanted to see what the reaction that you saw was commissioner from from business owners. Was it an instant okay? Maybe we can start rolling on this. What was the reaction that you saw? What I saw was exactly what we expected to see. That is businesses starting to put plans in place starting to make sure that they would make the designs that they needed to do to be able to open and do things safely. And I think I think you're seeing that you're seeing that across across the work off well county where nobody nobody that I've ever I've talked to saying you know business as usual opening our doors. What they're doing is they're saying. Okay let's look at this but see what we can do to put in place to be able to keep our employees safe and to be able to keep consumer sake whatever type business that is and You know at the end of the day. employs are going to need to feel sick. Be Able to work there and the consumers are going to have to be able to feel safe but they're not going to go into that business so It's really inherent on the businesses whether that's a retail business or or whether or you know that's a hair salon or barber shop or whatever that is that Is now going to be allowed that it's now open and under safer at home to do that. We just WanNa make sure that people are doing that in a safe manner I think the interesting thing is the guidelines that two states now putting out and pretty much mirrored ours and so Which which I think. That's great and they slowly starting to put some different guidelines out. I've noticed a couple of coming out but I mean I think the guidelines of pretty much standard no matter what the businesses right and again. That's I've mentioned that. If you read through the guidelines between the safer at work in the safer at home Really the only difference as you put it is not picking winners and losers When it comes to what businesses are able to open I would say pretty much true. Yes and one thing that I wanted to get to as well. Commissioner is some of those some of those cities that are in between two different counties. Were speaking mainly of Brighton in Erie. How're those conversations been happening With with those split cities you know I really you know I. I don't I don't really know what they're doing in those cities. That's the interesting thing with your pardon Weld County and in Boulder County. We've also got the same situation with Windsor. Johnston Johnstown and Windsor both in County and in Larimer County You know I that. That's inside those municipalities. I just I don't know how they're handling at a free show they're not drawn a line On the county line. I think they're probably looking at At their guidelines and I I kinda I can honestly answer. What those municipality is. Doing that are in different counties. I just don't have that answer. I know there's a lot of a lot of questions out there for a lot of people and a lot of different things going on commissioner and I know that that has been In talking with some business owners a little bit of the confusion knowing what they should be able to follow. Do see in the coming weeks Things starting to get back more on the same page. Yeah I I mean. I really think we're pretty much on the same page all alone. We had a very very good conversation. All five of the conversation with the governor on Friday night and You know I think that For the most part I I really for the most part I think we are all on the same page. I think I think because at the end of the day is that said you know. We didn't closing visibly opie business. We're not telling anybody to go up in the business. We don't have the ability to do that. We're setting please saying here's guidelines talking with Weld County Commissioner Chairman. Mike Freeman and I know that there is a lot of misconceptions about those guidelines when they came out and I know that the governor reacted in and had some very strong words. Have you had conversations with the Governor? And if so what were those? What were those like like? I said we get conversation with the governor last night. And you know I think you know we kind of recent understanding to some degree that You know what four Thousand Square Miles I. There is no way that I have any idea. We've got a number of towns that don't have law enforcement. That are way out you know in his ORLANDS are welcoming. You know. There's I don't know what they're doing out there. That's going to be up to what they're doing they're but they're you know he can't. There's no enforcement. There's no possible way to enforce just like there wasn't enforced thousand square miles to go go out and make sure that everybody was staying in their home when we were under the state homewares. You know it's it's it's it's an unfortunate deal it's a great guideline it is. It is what it is and I believe people for the most part are doing doing responsible things and I think that's where we have to beat people up able to make responsible decisions. You Use Commonsense Commissioner. Mike Freeman and again a week after the safer at work guidelines put into place in mentioning that the county operations are going to start to come back in an old. That's a relief for a lot of people that maybe have been operating without that paycheck. I know starting to back up very exciting times at least with with still extreme caution but still a sense of optimism and you know absolutely I mean you know obviously well county operations have been have not stopped. They've been all the things we've got to be doing or continuing to do doing definitely can with online stuff and and that kind of stuff but there are certain things that There are people out there that can't that can't renew their license plates online. Don't have that ability. And so now they'll be able to come in and actually get their expired expired license plates. It'll all be by appointment only That can make appointments and come into the clerk recorder's Office beginning on Monday and start getting start getting the things business that they needed to do just to function in their everyday lives. And like I said our lobbies will be open on. They'll be limited we will somewhat. We've got we've got some hobbies that there's only room in the lobby for one person and and but we'll be putting those guidelines out for for each one and be to start getting things in the services that that citizens need. That weren't able to be done. You know completely online so or tell or by telephone and so Yeah we're excited to To slowly start to roll this back out and and to be able to On a limited basis let people come in and and their services that they need from all Count Commissioner Freeman. We appreciate your time. I know it's been a hectic week and we'll continue to be hectic but we'll continue to check in again throughout their those dates and times For any of those town halls for for our listeners that they want. Maybe they've got questions that I wasn't able to get to here today that you're encouraging them to join in on. Yeah so on Monday on Monday. from five to six. We'll be doing a town hall meeting. We will get that published out there as far as the the number that you can call in for that town hall meeting And then We'll see how that goes and it might be something that makes sense going forward. We welcome never done a town hall meeting before. So we're going to try this and We'll have a number of updates of what's going on with the county as far as our services what. Um How lobbies are working A number of the things that we've been doing is as you know. I mean which part of the thing that while county has done is we spent almost five hundred thousand dollars in PPA as personal protective equipment that we've distributed to first responders throughout will county As they as they call him a question whether it's a fire district or police departments from around the county meeting Pini. We've been acquiring that in purchasing the out and then goes to be able to distribute that to the first responders as as they need it. So you know we're we're doing a lot of things that To try and help with the first responders safety of the citizens of Weld County. And that's one thing we can do. Is We have to purchase that stuff and and be able to get it. Spread out around the county where it needs to go. So we'll talk about that as well. Commissioner real quick and I'll let you go here but wanted to point out to the The letter that you received You and your fellow commissioners received Believe it was Saturday last weekend from the hospital workers. Have you had conversations with those? Have you respond to that to that letter and had those conversations with some of those people In the hospital realm. You know we. We've obviously been having. Conversations of Dr Wallace has been having conversations as we continue to see where this goes. You know. Hospitals have not been overwhelmed. We don't want them to get overwhelmed. And so You know part of the part of the thing is we've also able to assist with some of our healthcare systems as well with DP and we'll continue to work but everybody together. I mean. This is a partnership we all work together. And I think we'll get through this together right commissioner. Thank you so much for your time this morning.

June 1st: Weld County Commissioner Chairman Mike Freeman

"From. Good Monday of Northern Colorado welcome in to no code now on tenor. Schwinn to your host Brian Kelly during the production work here on a fine I don't know it's fine. It's transitioned from being okay. The temperature's nice out there. Sunshine to home. My goodness can I get into the air conditioner a little bit excited to be with you here on this Monday afternoon a lot of ground to cover not a lot of time to do it, and we will be going into of the. The northern Colorado News that you need to hear we'll give an update on the riots and the protests that are happening around the country. You know we kind of broke this all down on Friday. In the first segment, we broke down everything, regarding George Floyd, and how it is all played out and paying out to this point. Really, that's still the base of where we're at that time. Line is the base of where we're at now. We're just adding more of the same on there. We'll hear some some different reactions from mayor. Michael, Hancock and And what his responses as these continue the protests all ready happening down Denver at the moment they have. They started about noon a little bit after today. And things are continuing to go south in some of these protests and some of these riots. May the mayor of Atlanta Kisha Lance. Bottoms had a very powerful message that we will play back for you here in just a little bit about the riots and looting. There is a difference that I. Don't want this to get lost. We're diving. Right into this here WANNA get your thoughts out there. The feed mill, hotline, nine, seven, zero, three, five, three, thirteen, ten, nine, seven, zero, three, five, three, thirteen, ten, or they all female through one, nine, nine six. I don't want this to get lost. There's a difference between the protesters and the looters and the riders. There is a difference because the protesters are the ones who are out peaceful. We saw one. In for goodness, Sakes, Lebron James tweeted it and said the media is not covering this. It was from a media outlet that he re tweeted it from so I. Don't know where that was coming from, but it was it was. In Denver where the entire group of protesters lay down on their stomachs with their hands behind their back, showing showing their sign of of solidarity. That's that's a protester. Right of a writer or a looter are the people that you're seeing bust, open shops and rob from people. Make no mistake about it is robbing from people and you know there there's There's a lot of different things going on it. It's so hard to stay caught up on, so we will. We will present all of that and much much more here. Like I said get to the Noko News. Well County Commissioner Chairman Mike Freeman will join me later in the program. We'll get an update about weld county, because a believe it or not Cova. Nineteen is still a thing and it seems like it's kind of been swept under the rug here lately, but we're GONNA, we're GonNa Talk With Commissioner about that. We're going to talk about the recovery. How things have been going I I? Know really this is one of those dates to June. First a this has been the longest shortest year in the history of the world we're. We're six. Six months in and I know there's been a lot of jokes about what's June going to bring and this and that well we're about to find out June versus the date that a lot of businesses are opening backup restaurants in particular. They took the weekend. They took the long weekend and got setup, and they're ready to roll, so we'll talk with Commissioner Freeman about that. And then. Of course we'll get to the headline that caught my but okay. Let's dive into this so if you haven't been paying attention, there have been. Protests nationwide from Texas to obviously ground zero in Minnesota new. York is the new hotspot that we're seeing right now denver even into, Fort, Collins obviously in California. They're all over the. They're all over the place. The National Guard being activated in a lot of different areas, president trump having to stay in a bunker last night outside of the White House after protests continued outside of the white. House last night, some of the lights shut off and and it was confirmed that they was confirmed. The president trump was in fact in a bunker last night taken to a bunker four extreme safety measures. This is starting to reach that next level You saw in Denver that the curfew was put into place, and there was a curfew put into place that was an eight o'clock curfew by mayor Michael Hancock for the last couple of days. Well, he is extending the curfew for city and county of Denver for the next four nights nine pm to five am, so he pushed her back in our in this coming from Chris Vander Veen at nine news but again that that That curfew from nine pm to five am to This is to stop the looting and the violence in the. Violent protests, not the protests, not the peaceful protests, which there that we're starting to see the media swingback around on and by me. I mean a lot of social media. Outlets even the national media outlets are starting to swing back around. Say Yes, it is kind of getting lost underneath, but they are still there. They're still there. My Mayor Michael Hancock spoke yesterday on what was happening in Denver over the weekend so again he. You'll hear them reference yesterday. He's talking about Saturday. He made this speech Sunday, on the thirty first talking about events that had happened the thirtieth WANNA. Play that for you right now. What happened was reckless inexcusable. And unacceptable. I WANNA be clear. Those who took part in the earlier demonstrations yesterday? Peacefully and with with respect for others and our city. Are not the ones. We are talking about here. We had three successful demonstrations yesterday where people express their outrage over the death of George Fly. Without any violent or destructive acts, so this is these mayors governors and everybody's coming together. Say let's draw this line. Let's figure this out where this line is. Because there are successful protests they it's. It's every person's right to protest. We saw this happen just mere. It feels like three thousand years ago, but it was earlier in May. We saw people out protesting this shutdown of the government and on the outside looking in. Let's just call it how it is. It seems like it's two completely different. People two different agendas two different backgrounds. It's everybody's right to protest. And that's what these these mayors in these governors are wanting to make sure is not lost is that they are not condemning the peaceful protests by any sense of the imagination. They're not condemning that, but these writers. These looters have lost that and again I want to a message from the mayor of Atlantic Kishan Lance bottoms. We're GONNA. Play it in a couple of parts for you here but let's go ahead and plays back because she had one of the strongest messages that I've heard so far above everything else I am a mother. I am a mother. To. Four black children in America. One of whom is eighteen years old. And when I saw the murder of George Floyd, I hurt like a mother would hurt. And on yesterday when I heard. There were rumors about violent protests in Atlanta deal with a mother would do I. Call My son and I said. Where are you? I said I cannot protect you. Black boys shouldn't be out today. Out Concern. Me An out care about where we are in America. I wear this each and every day and I pray over my children each and every day. So what I see happening on the streets of Atlanta is not Atlanta. This is not a protest. This is not in the spirit of Martin Luther King Junior. This is chaos. A protest has purpose. When Dr King was assassinated, we do this to our city. So some of these messages starting to line up right, you can hear the passion. You can hear still that grief in her voice as she addresses. What is going on in Atlanta right now and. A city that has historically been transcending with these different protests, the different marches that has happened and the the mayor again we're gonNA. We're GONNA play the rest of this here. The mayor of Atlantic Kisha Lance Bottoms. She came back. She continued on this this conversation it was she. She continued to pick up the intensity of what she was talking about. You're not honoring the legacy of Martin Luther King Junior and the civil rights movement. You're not protesting anything running out with Brown liquor in your hands breaking windows in the city. CI, killer Mike Own half the side so when you burn down the city, you're burning down our community if you want change in America, go I registered to vote. Show up at the polls on June ninth. Don't end November that is a change we need in this country. You disgraced in our city. You are disgracing the life of George Lorden every other person who has been killed in this country. We are better than this. We're better than this. As a city, we are better than this as a country. Go home. Go home. That's been the reigning sound clip from around the country today and Hopefully having an impact on on the people out there because there is a way to do this, there is a way to go about this. This is why a America has been the greatest country we've ever seen because we value this. Week value the freedom of speech. We valued fight for injustices. But it's not happening the right way in a lot of cases right now. And we cannot be remissed if we did not mention the ways that it it. It is positively taken place. You know their stories out there and and these are the ones that I'm going to continue to try and focus on The ones that I'm going to continue to try and share you know. There's the the story coming out that one of the squadron one of the police officers got separated from Squadron and protesters again. Protesters, not looters, not writers protesters. stood arm in arm and you're no harmful fell upon him. He was back behind. The line of these protesters making sure that no one harmed this policeman. You see different people dropping off waters for these police officers. We're going to see lot. The age of social media the age of everything now now now we're gonNA. Continue to see this. We're GONNA. See things that we never thought we'd see in America. Because we've got the ability to see it now. In like I said there's a way to go about this. And right now we're in a country that is very torn. But positive communication, and it starts from the top with our leaders. It starts from the very top of their leaders. But having mayors come together on the same front. Condemning this? We, all agree. The Derek. Chavez the murder of George Floyd. Should be in prison for the rest of his life. It's time to come together and have a conversation. It's time to have that conversation. But let's do it the right way. Noko now here for eighteen. The time we'll take a break, we'll come back on the other side getting to northern Colorado News and much much more. It's Noko now right here on thirteen ten KFI. BASS UNC bears target game coverage lives on thirteen ten, Kfi. AMAC into Noko now on this Monday afternoon four twenty one the time here. In Northern Colorado I'm tanner rang. Kelly my producer as always. So obviously this. The newsroom is just a crazy place at the moment, and it's been that way. It seeming seems like for quite some time now we're going to do our best to stay up on what matters to northern Colorado live from the auto collision specialist studios again. It's no co now when it get your thoughts out through the all female hotline, nine, seven, zero, three, five, three, thirteen, ten, nine, seven, zero, three, five three. Three thirteen, ten, or that ult-, feed mill, text line, three, one, nine, nine, six, three, one, nine, nine six. If you're a new TEXTER, I'll have to do to subscribers text. KF K. Three, one, nine, nine six, and we'll get you up and rolling all right. Let's take a look around northern Colorado starting first with the Colorado in in JC Marmaduke friend of the show here. Larimer county extends facemask requirement indefinitely. This doesn't really come much of surprise larimer. County and Fort Collins have been leading the way with a much more conservative approach when it comes to businesses opening back up, and in which fashioned that they are opening backup, but larimer county extending indefinitely now brings them in alignment with Fort. Collins Policy, so we kind of saw this coming county masks requirement calls for people to our face coverings inside most businesses unless the business can adhere to a strict social distancing checklist. Checklist it was set to expire on Saturday the same day. The county amended the order to remove the end date for cons extended the city mask requirement on Friday the county, also of the order to address the reopening of restaurants, an indoor gyms people are required to wear face coverings when they enter those businesses, but can remove them to eat and drink exercising. Carry out other activities approved by the health department, so I know that a lot of people hearing that are like. What the Hell is the point. If you're going to go in there, but it's it's those first common gathering moments right when I walk into a restaurant. If they're busy, then you're going to stand there and be amongst other people. That's the thought process behind and I know a lot of restaurants are saying. Wait in your car. Call us in a call in will say yeah. You're good to go. Come on, or you hold up. Wait a minute, and then they'll come out and get you, so that's the idea. Is that that initial first gathering point in these differ businesses is where that they they want those masks, being worn both Armor County and Fort, Collins, mask mandates are effective in Fort Collins city limits and people are expected to follow the more stringent requirement whenever multiple regulations conflict with each other that means fort, Collins businesses can't opt out of the mask requirement, but most businesses outside of city limits can do so if you're in Fort Collins. And you own a business or you're going into a business they are. They are more. Tightly Monitoring, they're more tightly enforcing. The use of the mask? And what that means going forward is that they're going to be the last ones coming out of this as well a in terms of the business standpoint in communities. This story continues here in communities that don't have their own face covering requirements including love and Wellington residents are expected to follow only the county policy. Municipal mastercards are intended to slow the spread of the coronavirus which we all know so this is. This is news coming out the Larimer county now extending facemask requirement in definitely, let's jump over to Loveland with the Loveland reporter Herald. We're getting around the news here in Noko Loveland brewers eager to try out the new normal Obviously, we spoke with Kyle Carbajal last week. The Wiley roots, and how things are going to affect, say with people saying that breweries cannot open unless they've got food that they can present and serve their love and breweries are are ready. Get Rolling. Most of levels craft burgers never opened restaurants with their burris. Because all I wanted to do was brew and Sell Beer, but in the past week. They've been scrambling to figure out how to. To make their tap room's more alike restaurants. That's because of what I just mentioned is the state of Colorado requiring a food service that they're gonNA Open Nick Calloway. Open, levels work Wednesday possibly the first of Levin's eleven burris to reopen. He said as all the reopening level and Baru tap room's ORCs. BAR is out of commission and people are sitting only appropriately space tables inside an on the patio. The new rules require restaurant Barista have only fifty percent of their normal occupancy, which we've spoken and those different patriots to be sitting six feet apart from each other. We're doing all table service. Calloway said we're coming to tables to get orders or people can take their order up to the register where new with this whole table service thing. It's interesting for sure you know we've. We've spoke with on brew. Talk on With our Brouhaha stop, we get a chance to go round to all these different breweries. Crow Hop was one that I. Love the guys over there love the guys at Crow. Hop Co. owner and header destined. Canard said Dort. Said door to to to owner Jim, stopped in recently and proposed a deal. The restaurant would provide a full new inside the brewery, and would deliver customers orders to the taproom, and it's patio We just thought it would be mutually beneficial because he's just a Burri and not able to open up and I'm restricted to the number of tables have in here. Edward said I thought let's expand. He can have full service and I can get more tables out of it. So that cooperation is what's going to really search you. You're going to start to see this. Take hold look. I visited a couple of places over the weekend and leading up the rest of the week. You know I've talked about this before. I believe there's a there's an innate human feature in us that. CRAVES craves being social, and it craves normalcy and it craze routine because sometimes I mean there's a lot of think about if you don't have a routine right, if you can't just flip flip ahead and say oh I need another drink. I'm going to the bar. It's new right, so it takes some time and I did see quite a few people that editor at a restaurant. That did have this in place. They had it where they were only allowed to. Either use their APP to order, or you can have it and they'd come. You weren't supposed to leave your seat I. I saw a number of people. Get up to go pay I saw that and I saw a lot of people. You know as soon as somebody that they knew walked in it. Come up and have that conversation. You know they were weighted. We waited to get seated. They sat us where they wanted us at. And that's that was all fine and good but it it was. It was one of those things that it was just you can't. We can't take that away and we're GONNA continue to see this. You know people are going to get a to get very innovative with how they are doing things with the patio seating and extending into streets, and and other things. You Know Governor Police tweeting out last week that if you live near a restaurant, you should open up to your backyard to them right, and that's not GonNa Happen Right. Maybe it is okay. Maybe I shouldn't say that I don't know I'd be calling my insurance agent before. Four I did open a backup, but that's probably not going to happen a whole lot. These circumstances are still in place. Even though we're seeing these protests, we're seeing these large gatherings. From a business standpoint in northern Colorado in in Colorado, there are still strict Cova nineteen regulations. And I know. A lot of people are fighting. They're trying to figure out how to do that, so be patient I will throw that back out there. Be Patient with people. Make sure you're not just diving and make sure you're not gonNA be overwhelmed or upset because this is all new stuff that they're working through, and they're just very excited to be opening. Backup I. Know that there's been phenomenal support for most of the the businesses. The restaurants Burris distilleries. Whatever the case is that have opened back up. There's been great support so far. Keep that up if can I know. There's no doubt about it. There was an economic toll that was that was felt by everybody, but if you can do it, support your local business support whatever the local restaurant distilleries. burry right now there those are that's all fine and good. You know talking about those love and Burris that are opening, but there's breweries that don't have that location. You know they're not right next to a restaurant. They don't have that deal, so it's GonNa, be interesting to continue to watch, but just keep that in mind. Support local as always nocona speaking of local people mark Larson State Farm. Farm Insurance Agency. He's been at it for over thirty years. Man, do they to state farm? Have some great deals for you right now? they're rolling back a lot of money on a lot of car insurance because of the cove nineteen. Nobody was out driving right so why not they're! They're offering some money back, so make sure you check it out Mark Larson State Farm Insurance Agency. Forty, eight, ninety, five West Tenth Street here Greeley or you can call him at nine, seven, zero, three, five, six, eighty, seven, hundred, nine, seven, zero, three, five, six, eight, thousand, seven hundred, and let them know you heard about them right here on Noko, now. All right. Let's take a break. When we come back on the other side, we will get with Mike Freeman Weld County Commissioner chairman. What's the county up to? Nowadays as we start to move out of post, cove nineteen, but I the bottom of the hour news and weather center. Whole sports story in northern Colorado state in the country tune into the whole show weekdays noon to two and thirteen ten KFI K. Hey. Four thirty six now here on no co now tanner Schwinn Kelly during the production. We're happy to be with you to start the week off. And like I've been mentioning, it's just been crazy. How fast this new cycle continues to change in just want to make sure we're staying up to date with the latest leaders here and our special featured interview. This afternoon is well. County Commissioner Chairman Mike Freeman Mike seems like. Just yesterday we were talking about all of the lockdowns and how things are progressing. Well it seems like yesterday or year ago. Depends on the depends on the day. Yeah, that's for sure. We kind of decided. That everyday feels like Monday tanner yeah. That's true. That's true and you'd never. It's a never ending, Monday at the moment, but hey, we gotta keep that positive attitude and and try and make Mondays the best So yes Michael let's get into this. Here's the county starts to reopen. Has there been anything that you haven't expected? That's been taking place, or is it gone pretty smoothly so far? I think it's gone really smoothly from everything that I've seen and heard you know. A number of restaurants are open. We've actually went out and eat at several of them. Trying to you know, continue to support local business and You know I, think the things are going really well. Yeah, there's no doubt about it, Mike, it's been. It's been fun watching things open back up here and and from the county standpoint I know we're starting to see city of Greeley Open backup, but are starting to open up a little bit more now and other as some really strict restrictions when different county offices were opening up. So. You know we're continuing to open more and more of you know are are obviously we're doing land use cases. We're still continuing to do physical distance, so you know you know keeping share spread out, but we're trying to do business as usual for the most part Some of some of the lobbyists especially for example, the clerk and recorder where they have tremendous amounts of people are doing a lot of stuff by -pointment, but you know we're continuing slowly. Get more and more opened up. Mike I. Did see as well There was a video up on the Weld County government. Facebook page Dr Mark Wallace you guys bidding him a G- A good retirement as he is elected to retire. Has that position been filled? Who is going to be taking that position? And how vital role will they be playing with the commissioners? Well, you know obviously, we have not filled that role. We we have Enron. People in place have great staff over there and we brought in some additional interim helped as we go through this, but we're not gonNA. Get in a hurry we'll. We'll take our time and make sure that we hire the right person going forward and you know I don't know how long it'll be. Be It'll take some time to advertise and and get things out there and do some interview so We're not in a tremendous rush. Fill that full-time we're we're. We're okay with the Enron people that we have in place moving forward, and as we continue to work through this, you know a Lotta the emergency. Stuff with Cova comes out of our emergency. Operation Center as well we. We have contracts doctors that'll be able to to fill the artist far prescriptions, and those kinds of things for a number of things that the health department does and so a while we're gonNA tremendously Miss Dr Wallis. He was here for twenty five years. I've known with Dr Wallace for close to twenty He's going to be very much missed, but I completely understand why. Why would want to spend more time with his family after twenty five years so I feel like we're in a good word in a good place, and we'll continue to run a very animal health department speaking with Wall. County Commissioner Chairman Mike Freeman he's are featured guest here on this Monday afternoon. Let's keep it on. Cova nineteen, a related to the county offering free cove nineteen testing. That's correct. We did today down at South. East walled actually tested eighty people today so those those results will be back in with twenty four to forty eight hours, and then Wednesday will be doing testing and Briggs Dale Friday and sufferings, and the next Monday at Southwest Weld and those are all from eleven to three on those days, and you can go to to the to the WW Dot Welt Dot Org to register for those tests. Mike Freeman Wall County Commissioner chairman. Mike obviously the the new stories dominating the headlines have been these these protests these riots. It's kind of been taking over so far. Very peaceful ones here in Weld County. Yeah, I you know I don't expect to see the kind of things that you're seeing across the country in Weld County. thank goodness I don't know. It seems like the rest of the country's forgot. There was a code the nineteen because I. Don't really see any physical distancing and going on at those protests with thousands and thousands of people, and it's not really protests quite honestly kind of those are riots. They're destroy property, and you know I'm all for peaceful protests, but that's a long way from what's going on across this country right now will. It seems like that that's been the message here. from from every elected officials that there is a difference in. That line has been crossed and a lot of these circumstances. It absolutely been crossed. And you know, and I think part of it is. People are frustrated. You know get that. They've been following all these crazy. Stay at home orders and all this stuff for up to three months, and I think they're just you know they're ready to get out and go, but they're doing it in a really destructive manner. Has the governor been speaking? With local officials it seems like governor polls. You know he was having. Weekly even daily press conferences has kinda gone a little bit quiet at least from the media front. has been in contact with with Weld County and local officials. Not To my knowledge, I haven't had a conversation living for close to a month. He has not been contacting us. Right Well County Commissioner chairman. Mike Freeman. Let's follow up with that. Is that you off guard especially with with the strict guidelines that he's been putting into place. No I'm really not surprised that you know that he's not wanting to talk to us. that's that's not surprising at all. you know I think that I? Think that I think they're still well out of frustration because you know. One of the biggest frustrations were hearing from this from churches, and not understanding why churches can't do physical distancing and opening it just like other. Candidate churches are extremely important especially in Weld County and so i. think that hopefully he's going to figure out a way to go ahead and continue to open those up here shortly. I wish I could do more about it, but we're still back to the deal that we didn't close any businesses. We're not open any business. We're just trying to put guidelines, so people can can operate safely. I think we've seen that. We've seen our numbers. Continue to go down I. Think we've had one. In the last eleven days in Weld County I haven't seen the reports today. So you know there could have been another one too since then, but that's where we were going into the weekend, so. Really Good, not that every Potala doesn't matter, but at some point you know we've gotta get. We've got to continue to slowly. Get businesses back open and and get people back to work. It's really important for a lot of unintended health consequences that come from from people, not being able to support their families as well well, and that's where I was just GonNa. Go Commissioner. You know we've spoken a little bit off air as well that there are the mental health aspect of this is something that I think has been a little bit overlooked. I think it's been tremendously overlooked I. Mean we've seen domestic violence calls of jump dramatically suicide. have been dramatically increase as well so there's a lot of mental health issues that go along with people you know going bankrupt and not being able to support their families as well as you know as just being at home, and not in their normal positions, not normal places, so as it puts a lot of stress on families as well. Commissioner Freeman. What's next for Weld County well? What do you see the next couple of months looking like the next six months the next year? Well hopefully hopefully as we continue to get through this, and and we continue to do do these testings and and I think that I think that will help us continue to see where the numbers are at you know. Hopefully we don't see any kind of of surges going forward I. Don't I hope we don't? But who knows what comes in the fall, but my hope is that we're going to continue to get more and more businesses open and continue to move back closer to normal. We've gotta get back to normal at some point. And hopefully we're on track to do that. And hopefully by the end of the summer we'll be there and I certainly think one. One of the biggest mistakes that we could make would be not opening schools in the fall. I just think that would be a disaster. I don't know how can ever catch back up if they're not able to go back to school so hopefully. Hopefully we can get this sorted out and we can get things back to our schools are open, and we can see some sort of normalcy by the fall commissioned that with the school opening with that fall under the state guidelines or or Do you guys as the World County Commissioner Board have a right to say okay? Let's and I know that this could be different than the the businesses, not opening or not closing but. Do you expect schools in Weld County to be open come August Well. I expect that they will, but once again you know that is completely out of the purview of the board of County Commissioners. As well as you know school board. They have their own. Independent government operation as well. They've got an elected board. Who higher, their superintendent and run their school so I think the individual school boards are going to have to make that decision in each in each district. it's going to be interesting to see for sure commissioner on a little bit more of a personal note I know your sports. Fan have you become. Have you become a NASCAR FAN? Or what have you been watching because I? Know there's a couple of live events that have come back. You know I've been watching I. Guess I've been watching a lot of sporting events I. think that's mainly on I'm not much of a NASCAR and I did watch a little bit of the race the one time, but you know Hopefully baseball's going to get back in place here around the first of July still open to that and I'm really happy to hear the. The NFL say that they're going to. They're going to run a normal season so hopefully as we get closer to the fall, we're going to see sports. Come back. It's you know that's one of the other things. That's probably helpful for a lot of people's mental health as well. Yeah, there's no doubt about it. Yeah, I know you're golf fan. Did you watch the match? I watched a little bit of it. You know that's kind of fun? You know it was. It was Kinda fun deal. I'm glad to see people being able to go out and do that. And that Sun so yeah I watched a little bit of it and getting into play a lot more golf on at least on the weekends, which I certainly enjoyed doing couture. Let's get Outta here on this one I, but I am GonNa. Make you. I'M GONNA. Make you answer this question here? If the Rocky Mountain showdown happens this year. Does see you beat. See issue or you pull off an upset. You know my guess is that we're their out right now. In their programs see us going to be a pretty heavy favorite in that game. Hopefully they get to play it but I you know I don't know you know on the hugh alum, so it makes it really difficult. That game does. Yeah, you're Kinda split down the middle of their. Commissioner appreciate your time as always look forward to catching up here real soon and and again appreciate the work and the communication that you've been passing along the county. Absolutely, thank you. You have a great afternoon. Youtube that is welcoming Commissioner Chairman Mike Freeman he's. See you above fan so I head to just head to see on that. He's still found a way to give me a little bit of a political answer. Though he gave me that Paul, give me that politician speech. He wrote down the middle. He wouldn't wouldn't.

College athletes working in there now I mean they've got so many different connections. They understand from the little guys from high school athletics all the way up to to to seniors who who have just had a hip or knee replacement, proactive, physical therapy and sports medicine all right. Let's take a break. We'll come back on the other side. The headline that caught my eye. We'll recap. My takeaways from this afternoon as well as set up the rest of the week. You're listening. Right here on thirteen ten KFI. Thirteen ten KFI preps radio is northern Colorado's home for the past high school coverage. Crack down. I can. Come back into no co now here on Monday afternoon. Appreciate, everybody joining us. We wrap up today's edition of Noko now. Excited with you again from the Auto Collision Specialists Studios. Special thanks to Weld County. Commissioner Chairman Mike Freeman for joining us this afternoon. obviously still some fiery conversations happening about cove nineteen. Of course, this is something that will continue to happen and I mean it's not just going to go away. I know it's not dominating the the news cycle like it was, but This is still something that really not a lot of direction still. Still on, you know the guidelines around but governor police not with the daily weekly press conferences which we expected right. I mean we would slow down a little bit, but it just seems like it's been a little bit more rapidly on the lack of eating on the numbers, and it seems like the numbers were coming out so fast and furious, and not a lot of positive. Numbers at the beginning right, and now that we're starting to see those numbers. I mean one death and eleven days here in Weld, county, that's. You talk about flattening the curve or whatever the case is. Whatever terminology you WANNA use. That's. Doing it right I mean one death and eleven days is pretty remarkable, compared to where we were at a mere months ago and you know people are out and doing things so it will be interesting to continue to watch how things progress as we continue to get more guidance how those bands will start to be lifted. In new new technology, right a new new studies and better data on cove nineteen. We'll get into well. Is there a cure? Is there one of these antibody tests showing? And there are good. There is good news about it out there. There really truly is good news about ways that the different. The different vaccines and the antibodies are happening and how they're how they're working, and it's going to be continuing to be encouraging news from here on out, but okay. I'll tell you what let's get now to the headline the my eye. This story takes us to Wisconsin. Yes, Wisconsin here Dr Richard High and the University of Wisconsin. Green Bay has been helping his lab. Rats find forever homes after his first and second year, students complete their introduction to anatomy courses throughout the courses, students examined things like Eckerson, exercise, music and temperature affect the anatomy of the animals and high Wisconsin public radio that many students actually form bonds with their rats. That's actually one of the things that I. Really think is a great outcome of using research. Animal's Hind said the. The students that normally wouldn't get exposure to care for animals really take on that responsibility in fact Hind said that more than half of his students in his class wind up adopting their rats every year. Animals which hines say are very intelligent and intuitive of human emotions quote they're very into human interaction and being able to have fun with you. She told W PR so I look. I'm not a I'm not a road guy there. It's not that bad. You know I'd rather have a mouse or a hamster Gerbil. Then, then a reptile I'm terrified reptiles snakes. Lizards yet don't even like to way. A FROG feels right. I don't even that's just a no go, but I couldn't imagine having a pet rat either like. I get it like there's probably something there that you like. Hey, guys. This is my rat from this class. That I took like I. Get I kind of understand it. But I mean almost more than half a dopson. I don't know. I don't I. Don't know about that one. It is that time of year again where I am running the adopt. Program Road high in the newsletter, the anatomy and physiology students have been working with laboratory rats over the year, and they have eleven females up for adoption that have been raised since they were few weeks old this year. They are particularly friendly and fun bunch so who needs a craigslist ad. You want a new rat. You can go to the University of Wisconsin while University of Green Bay Wisconsin, but. Apparently, she'd been doing this for over twenty years, so there's been that many people in the last twenty years that want a pet rat. which is a surprise to me? Before we bid you do on this Monday afternoon. Do want to say thanks to Janai Crop Insurance and Jeanine Insurance Terry Gertz Janine Freeman up in all.

June 22nd: Commissioner Mike Freeman and Kevin Lytle

"How? Come. I act New Northern Colorado Command to no co- now live from the auto collision specialist studios. I am Tanner Schwedt with you on a fine Monday afternoon. After a long weekend, it was good one hoping it was good for everybody out there as well we've got a lot to get through got a couple of big interviews as we always do. We're going to start making our way through the rundown of some of these. Officials who are up for reelection we start first with Mike Freeman today, and we're. We're GONNA. Get to know more about these officials and exactly what they plan to do, if and when for some of them, they are reelected or elected into whether it's the commissioner. Role City Council whatever we have going on. We're going to start running through these hopefully. Get a couple on per week. so we start today like I mentioned with with Mike firm WHO's been a great friend of the show for quite some time. He is running for reelection this year, and so we'll talk with Mike. We'll talk about why what what exactly his credentials are and Go through. Get to know Mike Freeman on a little bit more of a personal basis. Then we'll talk with Kevin. Lionel Chasa provided a new update on the state of high school athletics. Come this fall and we'll let. Kevin describe it, but to be quite honest. It was a whole lot of nothing and I understand that. It is time for over sharing but this one was just a again. This was just a lot of lot of nothing in there, so we'll talk with Kevin. See if he interpreted anything differently than than what I did and We'll get his thoughts on that the Fort Collins Baseball City Championship. If you want to put that in air quotes and all they played on Tuesday of last week, so we'll get an update on who one had. How that all looked and as well as get a state of affairs from CS you? Kevin will come up third silent. We've got a special edition of the headline that caught my eye. This is going to be a fun one, so make sure you stick around at the end. It's it is a really good one, but I I WANNA leadoff today's show with something that. I know has been talking has been talked about a lot here in, Greeley, especially and it's the comments of. A DA staffer that happened on facebook over the weekend while I guess it was late last week that this happened. Jaden Watson Fisher out of the Tribune with the story. Here I'll run down this and then I'll give my thoughts on it. The Greeley downtown development. Authority played a staff member on administrative leave at expressing ill-will toward attending the President Donald. Trump's upcoming rally in Tulsa Oklahoma. That rally did happen over the weekend by the way with with the the. Event that had so much negative connotation around it from this staff member according to an NBA NPR report shared on Facebook, a judge denied a request or require physical physical distancing at the rally. Greeley Deiter trip downtown experience. Allison handling commented negatively on that post. in negativity is kind of a soft word quote God. They can give Cova nineteen to each other in quote Hamming said contracted the virus earlier this year she did go back and delete the thread, but it was too late. The Internet stays unbeaten quote. Unfortunately, the hospitals are not allowed to turn them all away at the door. End, quote. so this is just I mean this is just insane to me right off the bat. That's the first word that I WANNA use to describe this. Wishing that will, and in saying that for literally at Aziz that you were fighting and a lot of people are staying indoors for that have made great sacrifices for two. There's no cure for it so to wish that on a group of people that they would get turned away at the doors of the one place that could. Could potentially save their lives is is it's there's so many different words that I wanNA use, but it's sick. It is sick to to say that, and this is the same I mean. It's the same thing on the if it was the other side is some. If it was a Republican talking about a Democrat a group of people it would be I'd had the same reaction. We're all human beings. Are you kidding me I mean we cannot go at it from this angle that. If our political affiliations don't align then then I hope that you get Cova nineteen and can't get into the hospital TRICIA Kuenz Kim safer sand now. A member of the Weld Kenner Republicans facebook group told handling take the quote, Unquote high-road handling, said trump holding the rally. Cases continued rises COMP-. Quote completely disrespectful to our healthcare. Providers quote according to screen shots of the conversation Santos. She knew Hamlin Contracted Cova. Nineteen handling was in Santos, quote, thoughts and prayers despite their opposing political views. You're saying because you hate trump that you hope everyone that attends an event catches covert and has denied medical treatment that treatment that saves your life sand our road. That is what you wish upon them newsflash. We are not all democrats and spewing. Spewing this hatred to another political party, and the people that believe differently than you is so out of line, while handling is far from the only person that expressed concerns about the rally, a recent new. York Times article cited at Tulsa officials, asking for the event to be canceled amid one hundred eighty two percent spike and active cases in just a week. It was the manner in which she expressed those feelings that has drawn a backlash. Bianca Fisher the executive director. had. Hamlets, comments. Were quote completely unacceptable? And unacceptable and unquestionably crossed the line Fisher said, handling provided valuable work for the comments do not reflect the organization's mission or value rather handling statements impact how people view the DA? And this is the second time since the beginning of June agree, leader received criticism. It goes into talk about Kristen Zeta and what had gone on so anything I add to this will sound like excuses, and there is no excuse for someone in my position to wish anyone to fall ill just for difference in political opinion, hamlet said in the statement. My actions heard the DA in my community I've loved so passionately and worked so hard for over the last decade. Hope there's way to heal. The wounds caused by my thoughtlessness. Fisher says she and the DA board will determine how to move forward with allison handling. This is look I'm I'm a firm believer. In second chances I believe that people make mistakes I completely get that, but it takes about five minutes of research into allison handling, and into the post and the stories and the people around Greeley. To know that this is not, this is not a one time occurrence. This just happened to be one that that that crossed the line enough that it garnered this type of attention. There's been facebook posts left and right that have have had negative connotations. There have been posed that have affected here at the station as well. Regarding see, this is why we don't do business with you. Because of the political affiliation, the station was ten years ago. And the that type of recklessness and thought thoughtlessness. She said it herself. Is is not something you want representing an entire downtown, an entire group of businesses. Because that will lead to. Democrat Republican you look at it from a business standpoint, money's money. You want to be able to grow downtown. You WanNa. Make an inclusive environment for everybody. That's not how you do this, and this is not a first time thing. You talked to anybody that has has an I mean. How Italians credit those Friday. FESTS have been huge for downtown. There's no doubt about it. But at what point do those start to hurt? Do these comments to being in the news all the time. Or on facebook. Greely is still a small. We're growing like crazy just past boulder as the tenth or eleventh biggest city in the state, but it's still a tight knit community word gets around man. And when you have somebody in this type of type of position, making these types of comments, it's not only detrimental to the way. It is detrimental to the downtown area of Greeley. So, I will be I will be shot. I will be shocked if Alison handling gets her job back if if that's what they decide to do, the going to meet about it, but I just don't know in what way you can have someone who wishes who wish this type of ill especially when she had gone through, it wishes that on an entire group of people because of a difference in political opinion. It just doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me. But I rest my case. It's just something that I felt needed to be addressed, and we'll see at the end of the day. We will see what the board decides, but Again the the quotes good. They can give Kobe nineteen to each other Unfortunately, the hospitals are not allowed to turn them all away at the door. Words from Alan handling of the DA speaking about the trump rally goers for fifty four fourteen time here on Monday afternoon. Want to say thanks to mark Larson State. Farm Insurance Agency. He talked about somebody who knows the area marksman doing it for a very long time. He's got the best of intentions. Intentions he's going to help you and he's very very knowledgeable.

Larson State Farm Agency Nine, seven, zero, three, five, six, eighty, seven, hundred, nine, seven, three, six, eighty, seven hundred. Let's take a break when we come back on the side.

Collisions Specialists Studios Brian Kelly new in the production work doing a great job back there as always well. Thank, you said we're going to start this where we're gonNA. Start working through the candidates coming up on the ballots in the primaries here on before too long here in June, so we're start getting to know some of these candidates and we're gonNA start with somebody who's been a friend of the show, and well since its inception, and that is well county. Commissioner Chairman Mike Freeman, Mike. Thank you so much for taking some times afternoon and and speaking with us. Down, how are you today? I'm doing well. Thank you Sir and hope the same to you and well. Mike let's just get started I. Know that for a lot of people you know. We kind of forgot. It was an election year for a couple of months there, but I know that. I know that you've been doing doing both you've been running for reelection as well as handling the chairman. Responsibilities of Weld County Commission. It's been a busy year. Would expect it to be doing it during a pandemic on top of everything else, so yeah, it's a seamless group for months here. Well, walk us through it I mean how how have you walk that fine line of of balancing both the reelection campaign as well as as leading the commission to such uncharted territories. Well, you know it's always a balancing act is as you're doing this, but you know it's been a little bit different campaign this year. Because you know whatever been going on you, we weren't able to have the meet and greets, and actually groups together and actually do that, so it's it's kind of been a different kind of election process where you've just been individually. With people and and using more probably media, and you know between between radio stations and print media, and sending out flyers, and just trying to get our message out I mean so it has been different you know it's. It's not all that different I. Guess I was also. Sharon twenty sixteen when I was running for reelection, so I've been through the process before I'm. I'm trying to balance those kind of things. It's just a little bit different with with the whole covert teen wall. Right and you Mike You I. You were first elected back in two thousand twelve. So you've been you've been on the Council for quite some time here. What have you learned? And what have you changed? Since he was first elected back in twenty twelve. Well you know I get elected in twenty twelve. It's a huge learning curve, and so you know it's a learning process for a while, and you get to know you know all of the all of the moving parts and well county, and and believe me. There's a lot of them. We have a lot of. We have a lot of departments, but we have tremendous department has we have tremendous leaders in weld county to that run on the run departments and make sure that we do what we do in county, which is extremely fiscal, fiscally conservative. You know we one of the few. Few who, on the only counties that doesn't have any long term, debt or short-term Dad, no sales tax We continue to have a reduction in our mill. That'd be on the Levy set at twenty two point eight, and we actually give a rebate to fifty point eight, so that's a huge benefit to the property. Tax Payers Weld County and even as we see ourselves in any struggling times we're in great were Great Position Budget Wise in Weld County. We're actually looking instead of doing a one year budget. We're already starting to the process of doing twenty twenty one budget, but we're actually. Actually doing a three year budget of twenty, twenty, one, twenty, twenty, two, twenty, twenty, three to the able to balance the the the numbers that will have twenty twenty one, which will be really good, because we look at oil gasping at two years in the rear, those numbers from point, nineteen production, and be able to balance out over twenty, twenty, two, twenty, twenty, three to be able to keep us in a position where we continue to be able to provide all the services that are that we need to the Citizens Weld County, and in the meantime, not having to lay off employees for. For All employees ripping employees, so you know we're. We're in a great position and our employees. Our family and we're GONNA. Make sure they're taking care of well. My Commissioner Mike Freeman on the line on the all female hotline with us at the moment as we started to get to know more of these candidates now Mike I know you've been known around Northern Colorado for quite some time. Well County, and but your backgrounds come comes from farming and I know that farming has kind of worked hand in hand with his its oil and gas DC that partnership continuing to the next couple of years. Oh absolutely and you know, and that's one of the things that we worked really hard onto. Actually we introduced the bill and got it actually got. It passed the House Bill Fourteen twenty. One, which is the tax relief bill that allows allows property tax owners to be able to not pay the second half of their taxes until October first with a reduced interest rate instead of it being one percent. Percent Months interest, which is what is in statue is in statute. We got that change to counties can often which obviously well county did to make it one percent per year, which is a twelfth of a percent per month, which is a huge benefit to the oil and gas industry, but I believe it's even bigger of benefit to our Agra aggregates. Because the egg produce. You're struggling. Through this entire process, and so this is going to be something that allows are are ag producers, as well as well and gas, and also many other business owners to be able to. Have the casual they need to get their businesses back operating after this unbelievable economic down from the scene, and be able to sustain their businesses and be able to put off their their property tax payments for for at least a couple of months and give them up to date to get through that he you know with that said Mike as well. The we we continue to see weld county grow and diversify. emportant is it to keep those local routes that that forming and the agricultural feel and still adopt and adapt to the new businesses moving in. Well. It's extremely important balance, but know the thing the thing that I think we've always known is the. Agriculture has always been the backbone of Weld County and I believe that cultural will always be the backbone of Weld County. You know we see the ups and downs in the oil and gas industry. We've seen that over over over for a number of year, and we'll continue to see that I'm sure and we'll see oil and gas bounce back, but in the meantime agriculture and the and the many businesses that are directly related or indirectly related to agriculture are what make well county go, and so as we continue to see new businesses. That's great. We continue to do what we can bring business in and have the trained. Workforce in place, but but agriculture is extremely important and always will allow county speaking with well. County Commissioner. Chairman Mike Freeman about his upcoming re-election here in the twenty twenty year and Mike it's it's no secret that there have been moments throughout the Weld County Commissioner Board that the board members have always gotten along. How has have you grown from that? Some of those experiences that probably weren't the most positive. I think for the most part we've. We've always worked really well together. There was some there were some times when maybe we didn't see I personally, but that didn't change. what we were doing. As far as running an operating well the weld county that that never that never wavered and you know we're in a great spot right now. We've got five county commissioners that are on the same page doing a great job through all this and looking forward to continuing to make sure that we strong and stable Weld County and I think at the end of the day. you know well counties extremely resilient. We're GONNA. Come out of this and be stronger and better than ever before. Mike. What are you look back on and say okay. That's something that I'm probably the most proud of my work that I've done over the last eight years. Well I think. They're probably a number of my. I think one of the things that that I'm most proud of is. Is County Road Forty nine project of which you know? We originally looking at that? We were looking at doing that project over a ten year period, and we realized that that just didn't make sense that that would be an extreme hardship on people along that corridor to be able to do that entire. Entire project in less than four years to be able to put down forty nine in and what that has done for the infrastructure needs a weld county. That's one I'm extremely proud of now Mike. I do want to ask before I. Let you go here. Kristie Melendez is running against you What do you know about Christie, and why come time to vote? Why should people be voting for Mike Freeman? Well you know I know Kristie I. Think She's I think she did I. Think she did a good job as mayor in Windsor. you know I think that I think what separates I think what really separates the two of us more than anything else is I'm the only county commissioners that's running that actually lives in unincorporated Whoa County I. Think the my bag, background and business background as you know I grew up on a farm and ranch I formed and island crop insurance business we deal exclusively with the industry, and I think that that voice on the. The board of County Commissioners Room Important I. Think the other thing that's extreme forty. We go into as we go into these really trying times I'll also be the most experienced county commissioner on the board. I think that knowledge and experience and background is extremely important as we go forward as we go forward and come out of of this economic, this economic downturn and move forward into in the next couple of years we'll county commissioner chairman Mike Freeman Mike. Is there anything else that people should know? You WanNa get out there to our listeners ahead of election season. Now, I guess the only thing that I would say is you know it's been a truly an honor to represent the citizens of world? County since two thousand twelve I was elected in two, thousand, four and reelected in two thousand sixteen, and You know I I very much look forward to continuing to represent the citizens especially in district one, but but all of well county and and I. They're supporting their vote again this time. All Right Commissioner. We appreciate your time as always and we'll be looking forward to catching up with you here real soon. Get thank you.

County Commissioner, Chairman Mike Freeman a little bit more in depth as well, and it's been a fun show. We're GONNA shift gears a little bit here and go more up the sports alley with our well. He's on every week at this time Carolina'll the Fort Collins Colorado and Kevin we assembled our task force. Way Back when to figure out how high school athletics is going to be. Formed and how they were going to be played well, I do believe that you and I could have put together an update the way that chas put an update. On their light latest one from last week. Yeah to summarize. Nothing, yeah, it was. It was I didn't catch you off. Guard a little bit. Yeah that we're yeah. I think I was out for run or something of just saw you know thing on my phone with a tweet from this. Okay I'll check that out. Opened up Kinda read Etan say will damage the rest of their what and like you and I were texting I. appreciate that they're trying to communicate and keep people in the loop but shelly said nothing, and unfortunately, and but I guess also not surprisingly. We're all kinds of in limbo right now. You know it's GonNa mid June here so still plenty of time before the season's really would want to get going. But we're also getting. Closer to win decisions do need to be made I think everyone's just eager and. I, ask coach you know I talked to a bunch of coaches and ask them what they're hearing that, but just as often they're reaching out to me to see if I know anything because you know, everyone is just kind of in limbo right now. Waiting to see what's going to happen so I've been here. I've been here a couple of different things Kevin. I've been hearing from some. Well. Not only just coaches athletic directors as well that. We're not on the field yet. We're not using shared equipment, but we're gathering and working out in small groups. Then I see some and talk to some that that you know football teams that are out there running their formations running there where where? Where's the truth out there I mean? Is everybody just taking it at their own pace? Yeah it's really broken down both by county and by school districts, which I guess Kinda rolled together and allow ways, but Yeah, the are certainly some school districts where they've loosen the the rain. A little bit opened up facilities a lot more than others that that really haven't done that and so that's GonNa make the season does happen as planned there's. There's no doubt there's GonNa. Be Some disparity and prep for the season I. think that's something. everyone's GonNa have to accept I'll probably not like it, but but accepts because like I. Say obviously throughout Kover there. Some counties that have been doing well as far as number of cases and all that and others that that struggle more and that's GONNA BE A. A big thing both lean in the season during the season of you know what happens if there's a spike in one area, and and not in another so they I really is all over the map Jenner. He just nuts to me to see. This is the state that we're in we're we're even talking about you. Know how how they're practicing. And what style? Style of practice, and how could result Kevin? You know we talk a lot about Asterix with professional sports. College Sports not really with high school athletics very often because we understand that there is a bigger picture out there right than just the wins and losses, but think that this year could have an Asterik for for whoever the state championships are or for. You know if there's any records that aren't or are broken. What are your thoughts on that? Yeah I think it's GonNa. Be Interesting to see I. Think a lot will depend on how you know how the season really goes. You know like I kind of mentioned what happens if? Let's. Let's talk football just because that's an easy example Let's say you know well. County obviously had some big case numbers especially early in this, what happens if during football season well spikes, and they have to kind of shut things down for for a little bit and say loveland football was going to go play Greeley Central, but that games called off and. how do you know? Is that forfeit? Is that how that affect things and then just imagine if that's a playoff scenario, you know that type of thing happening, so there's certainly a lot that could happen. That would really make it very wonky. And then we talked records than the big one to me. Is Career records of? Obviously, screen kids just lost. You know full season so basically. It's GonNa be hard for kids to set you know accumulate a career record, and whatever it is runs in baseball the HA. You know what kids are going to. Have a three year career where you look at the number, and you do the math and go man if they'd had had that fourth year. Look at where they would have been so there's definitely going to be some of that. Those might be the most legitimate cases of Oh. Man, if I had one more year. Right you because we all know that guy that's like Amazon. Oregon pro of my knee, or whatever? That's stereotype, so this might be the most legitimate time for for the most legitimate Asterix Asterix out there I think. Yeah definitely a little different of a global pandemic, wiped out my season rather than I had a pioneer. Whatever right yeah, we're talking with Kevin Line of the Fort Collins Colorado we did know there was some sports that were played over in Fort Collins and some baseball that was played. The the quote Unquote City Championship was held last. Was it last Tuesday believe Kevin, who who took away the championship. Fun The team, the four city teams that played a round robin. They all played each other twice the six games than they played a consolation game, and and then the championship game and adds. As we all would have expected I, think from knowing the teams going into the season. That wasn't rocky. Mountain Fort, Collins met in the championship game. certainly the best two teams Africans actually beat them. beat the Lobos for. The the. So called City! Championship! They got a little trophy and all that I just laugh. I knew it was pretty good baseball to there's certainly some intensity and I felt It felt very real. There's a lot of fun to see that and like we talk most importantly, it was just really cool for the kids, especially the seniors to get one chance at least a little bit of closure to their season and and really. I think envious is being cast from around the state at Fort Collins for forgetting to do that and Kinda pull off successfully. 'cause I mean I certainly heard from some coaches, and and some just baseball fans high school baseball fans when they saw that was starting to going on man. Why why? Why don't we get to have this that way? So it was a really special thing for for the teams will and I think. Think that something. We can take away from it, too. Is I mean that's a pretty pretty quick turnaround going from from no sports to bang, let's play this tournament and two for from everything. You've been saying pretty good baseball I think that's encouraging for a lot of people. When we look at okay, the caliber of play that we're going to have when we do get going. These kids are for the most part. They're staying ready. and. They're able to pull it off. There were changes on. You had smaller roster numbers because they wanted to limit. You know how many people were in the dugout. Things like that, but I think the good thing when we're talking high school sports and when they're gonNA. Return as kids that age are pretty adaptable and obviously they're Kinda. That's less to in a lot ways so. They're Kinda able to roll with the punches better than than maybe some older folks like get stuck in there though so i. think that's GonNa be good whenever things really do start returning is they'll just kind able fall into. Obviously, they're going to be you know health and safety and injury concerns just from not competing for a long time. But really kids are. Kids are amazing that their ability to and I think that's GonNa play a huge role whenever sports are starting to return in force, speaking with Kevin Lilo the Fort Collins Colorado joining us as he always does. On Monday afternoon Kevin Ceus you now. Has there some student athletes back on campus? What can you tell us about well? You know the big story obviously. Is that football team over there? What can you tell us about how the football team starting to get back into shape? Yet they're bringing. The football team back has sort of the first team on campus. They're hoping bring other false sports and basketball back in. Early July roughly. About it in phases, you had yeah, okay one group after another, so you didn't all of a sudden have hundred. Players coming back for Collins that wants to try and start working out They have instead using the weight room. They moved basically the weight room up to the concourse. At Canvas Stadium, which is actually a really smart use of that space so they're working out outside I. I talked to player last week. WHO's been part of these workouts? He says yeah, it's you know it's good to be with. The team says. ow Pre structured how you go in the you know they don't enter through the building. They're basically never in the building or inside at all I'm using the outdoor elements in their favor, so it's pretty structured how they're doing it, but they have slowly phased in pretty much. The whole team for for voluntary workouts obviously is what they call it. You know how voluntary those are all right, but they had most team back now, working out like say in that outdoor setting you so so far. They you know that's obviously a positive for step. Kevin, as as you know, I, like to pressure you into putting numbers on things I like predictions I like 'cause I like to point back and say hey, look how right Kevin was because the majority of the time you are and I'm GonNa. Make you do this again if you will play along here, I wanNA percentage. Chance that high school athletics fully happen and I wanted percents chance the college athletics you know mainly football is that those are the big sports that will what what percent chance will they happened in your is? A great question I wish I. I, wish they. All say I mean football is the toughest one most high school sports I feel pretty confident about I mean like we've talked. We could go do the golf season right now. If we wanted and be safe and healthy with it, I think high school I'd probably put a. In, a seventy to eighty percent range you know college eighty percents to be optimistic. About that college football I put higher not because it's in any way safer allow actually in most ways always, that's harder to do than high school football, but the money is such a driving factor that college football I'll I'll put it up to eighty five. Maybe even slightly higher person on. That's going to happen. That's so fascinating because. I heard a lot of different opinions on it, and that's actually a standpoint. That I hadn't even thought of a view of viewpoint that I haven't even thought of yet. Was that money I mean? That is going to make up for a lot of the risk factors that we're going to see, so you believe that the money generated from from college? Football is going to be big enough that they're going to find a way to navigate the travel risks. which is what you were talking about why it's. It's safer to have high school athletics. There's not as much travel involved. You think the money's GonNa go offset that. I think it's the biggest factor right now and obviously that's. My can already fine, so I'm going to leave even more almost ethical debates about that of you know in some ways, college athletes right now are being used almost guinea pigs. With, going back to campus and start workouts and stuff there, there's a whole lot and yeah. That number changes all over. If you'd asked me that same question three weeks ago, I would give you away lower number and who knows three weeks from now. If it changes which way it will change I should say, but right now. I'm somewhat optimistic more than I was earlier. Earlier in the summer or and in late spring I. Guess we would call it, but we have the money in college athletics. All these universities there are obviously all struggling financially as is and without college football season it could, it could be catastrophic I have one coach. 'cause might be a little hyperbole. They said that if college football doesn't happen, then it's the end of college sports. Maybe an overstatement, but just the fact that that's in their head up to college coach. That told me that. In their heads speaks the the impact of a college football season. Right and I I mean I. Don't doubt that for some programs. It would be Kevin I absolutely agree well. I'll tell you what Kevin Lytle of the Colorado and he knows his stuff I trust him. He was right about the first initial CHASSAR report. I was wrong, so I'll tell you what Kevin. I'll give you a legitimate asterik next to those numbers that you just threw out there so that later on. If we need to come back and revisit them, there's there's a legitimate Asterik, therefore you. Out, certainly probably need to be changed them I. Just don't know it. Well Hey I appreciate you playing along. I tend to agree right there with Ya. I think there's going to be a way that we have that and well. We're going to have to start talking about madden games or something like that if if we don't have sports here before too long. Yeah we we need them from. Mental Health for you and I. That's for sure Kevin appreciate it, my friend. What are you what cooking on this week? Well I'm actually heading into quote unquote? Vacation Week I was supposed to be heading out for a baseball trip this week. Which does is not happening, but still take a little time off from work. There you go, man. Will you deserve it? You've been working your butt offer during all of this, so enjoy it and send me pictures of whatever golf course you destroy. I don't know if we want to see that. Ugly numbers. Wearing and all that stuff so. Keep that off the off the public. Airways right? Okay well. You can just takes it to it for me it. Takes me for my enjoyment, Kevin I. appreciate it, my man, we'll. We'll talk with next week if that's all good and we'll catch up with you then. Great appreciate. You thinks that is Kevin Lytle of the Fort Collins Colorado and. Appreciate his time while we were on Air I. Actually do have some a little bit of breaking news here I just saw that the Roosevelt. Rough riders head baseball coach Jared Cronquist is stepping down from position at Roosevelt, so jared cronquist. He's been around the area for quite some time. He coached at plant, valley as well and now he is wrapping up his career at Roosevelt after four years forty-six and twenty three record top three finish in their conference every year, three straight playoff appearance appearances excuse me and a top five finish the state and twenty eighteen, so jared cronquist, announcing that he is closing his chapter as the head coach at Roosevelt High School all right.

REShow: Mike Freeman, Laird Hamilton, and Gabby Reece. Hour 3 (03-26-19)

"Orig- is on demand. Your show your schedule. Fifteen minutes after ball dot com. Check out the casts at richeisenshow dot com. Hour number three. The rich Eisen show is on the air. We've had a fun. I two hours is back from a week off out of the chair hanging with my family. My lovely wife and our three children on vacation in Italy. As you saw my Instagram account with thirty two photographs posted over ten days span that calls Chris Brockman to mutiny, which our kind of outraged about it, very honest, highly caffeinated jetlagged, which is again the worst Jimmy Buffett album ever Kelvin Sampson called in from Houston. Cougar basketball getting set to take on coach cow and Kentucky in these sixteen. March madness returns on Thursday with the Sweet Sixteen starting with the double dip right here in southern California in Anaheim in the Honda center where Gonzaga takes on a Florida state Gonzaga wins Brockman is in. Deep trouble in his pool because he has FSU in the final four, correct. If Michigan loses I'm wearing clown makeup pretty much. That's true. Okay. For the first time and the five year history of the rich Eisen show bracket competition for those might be surfing for the first time on our live dot com. Replace to have you here. We're now your everyday you can watch us on B our live dot com every single day round the world as a matter of fact. We have a competition amongst the three of us. We've also now included my two sons, and if either and or Cooper beat all three of us than all three of us have to work right now Zan is in in second place behind you Brockman, and I showed him that tweet. You sent out from rich Eisen show yesterday flight. Oh, okay. We were somewhere over Greenland, okay? Or Greenland, and I showed him the tweet that he's in second place. And a big smile broke all over his face. And he looked at me 'cause I'm in last because I chose all of the shockers. Yeah. You. He was the first time betting favorites made it into the suites, gene, right time. I've ever right. So he looks at me and like straight outta CSI Miami like the most Caruso thing over his glasses. God bless him by little boy looks at me. And he goes. I guess all the upsets got upset. The only thing missing. Was the who screech from CSI Miami? Literally. Which I scared all the passengers. And again back from my the Italian vacation that I was on. And you said you put out a Twitter poll, did I gain weight on this vacation? Did you gain weight? Yeah. It's a little bit lost a little bit. Yeah. Stayed the same actually lost a little bit. Yeah. I stayed. I stayed exactly the way myself everyday walking so often it's also, you know, it's the clean food over there. It's clean only. Seven percent stayed the same. My nickname on vacation is the maintainers. On the maintainers. I on the maintaining which is the worst, Billy Joel. We're showing up. We're showing all of the Instagram. Feed took pictures of all this foods. They're amazing. The pizzas. Race. I'll tell you what you saw that. Instead of meeting me. I mean, he made fun of the peace. The NFL owners the owners meeting just voted to make permanent last year's kickoff. Rules that were done, you know, for much of them for safety rules and right? So they made them they've made them permanent waiting to see what happens for the rest of the ownership for a lot of the other instant replay related votes. What's going on there? And we figured why not to help us through all this on the day that we do launch on VR live dot com. Every single day heavily reports. Mike Freeman on the program. How are you? Mike. Of all the maintainers is a sequel to equal is that right? Where I go around. I go around and for people who have trouble maintaining I helped them maintain. You don't you don't hurt anyone you can just maintain them. Well, no, I do a lot opposite. Equal your opposite. You keep people alive because you maintain. But like that better. I you know, what? So without the vigilantism is what you're saying without the vigilantism. Out of his main thing. Well, it is a great nickname could be next thing. My fantasy team to maintain by the way. I'll be your avatar. I'll be your avatar. Certainly it's run the Bleacher report family now altogether. Mike, and you've been with bleach reports twenty thirteen when people were probably wondering what you were up to doing that sort of it has been really an amazing ride and others make this brief when Bleacher started it was a very unique idea. But a lot of people didn't know what to make of it. And then it took this dramatic turn towards a lot more journalism a lot more of everything. And now, it's you know, I I've worked at the New York Times Washington Post Boston Globe. Bells morning news. I worked at a lot of really good places. One of the best things I've ever worked. And because they really focus on stuff that I like like, really good journalism. Really good writing. It's been a remarkable ride and transformation. And I feel like this is just not to get all sappy. I'm going to start crying. You been one of my favorite guys, you allot of people in our business. My business come on your show. Just really like you because you're just a really good honest. Do that thing I'm gonna cry. Are you telling me to live long prosper together? Mike, are you telling me to live long and Prosser plaza right now than proper other reason, I love come on your show. Because you get my stupid Star Trek. Okay. Let's get by the way. Thank you. And again, we here are thrilled to be part of the Bleacher family and be our live and look forward to how we can all work together. So are they going to make any changes to the instant replay system? Do think to make sure what happened in the NFC championship game never happens. Again, you think that will actually happen over the next twenty four hours Mike with we're still waiting to see rich one thing, though, is I noticed been some reporting on this. And I've I've heard the exact same thing that Sean Payton as you would guess just one of my favorite guys in the league, by the way. Just really good smart coach who saints royally screwed lessen the playoffs. So obviously, some payden is still said about that understandably. He's been really passionate and vocal behind the scene about trying to get some changes done with that. There's there's always, you know, this you've been around long time is always resistance initially to certain changes to really change in general from league that moves Thomson very glacial pace when it comes to. Changing on many different levels and some of that happening now, I think there's just owners that sort of a little bit nervous about doing anything drastic. But having said that I think there's a lot of support behind. I don't know if it's going to be any changes are gonna pass or not. But I think there's owners realize that you need to sort of modernize the game and make the game advance as people's viewing habits as we can see very easily. Now if you watch game on TV what the proper coal is. Now, most people are so educated and a lot of the calls. You can see what's going on. So you have to account for that. He had his act like it doesn't exist. I know. But that's the thing. And I know, and that's part of the issue here where where one of the more influential owners John Mara says, you know, we shouldn't take the onsite ticket. Turn it into a fourth and fifteen play from either the twenty five and the thirty five because they're not the arena league to me that's out of touch and. Then you've got coaches who vote unanimously apparently at their meeting thirty two nothing to let some official that's already sitting upstairs. Make a ruling on a play that needs to be reviewed sort of like a sky judge like the af has which I don't like because I don't see a challenge flag. I'm sitting at home. And then all of a sudden, I think a play that doesn't get challenged is being challenged by somebody that buzzes in from some, you know, from underneath, you know, Zaid's chopper shop, you know, what? I mean. Like, that's what I'm saying. Like, we don't know. We don't see where this person's coming from. Let's just let the coaches I know they've got enough on their hands. But let them use a challenge flag. Keep the challenge universe. The same just to get. Right. Get you the third. You don't expand that. And that you if you do give them a challenge for something. That's judgment call. They get it wrong. Then penalize them yards on top of losing the challenge. And boom you make the last two minutes some. Sort of rule where it has to be a blatant call to have somebody buzzing from New York City, and then we have an argument what blatant is. But we all know what blatant looks like sort of like the famed phrase about what pornography is for the lack of a better phrase. I think we can all work this out, Mike. I think you just did. To stand alone. But the problem the problem is. The league and the one of the interesting parts of this is coaches used to always be the ones that were one of the move very slowly because they were more affected directly. They had to manage all these changes that owners gyms will put in place and coaches always wanted to move a little bit slower. Now, if you like the coaches are sort of leading the charge some of some of it is of Senate, of course, because if you lose the game the way to sank did that is brutal. But I also think it's what's what's on pay. Some of these other coaches are doing smart, it's really just sort of saying, let's keep moving forward into the modern into the twenty first century keeps the game interesting. Keep it moving forward. And you know, what they'll rich? I would say what the owners are thinking in some ways is is looking how popular the game is look at it. I mean, have we lost some viewers we have? But look at the numbers were getting look at how many people watch. And I don't wanna screw that. I wanna keep that going the way it is. And that's not an unfair argument. But eventually that stuff catches up to you. And eventually do have to adapt and keep keep just saying this is the twenty first century. Let's change some things up not gonna kill us. It'll probably make getting more exciting and it won't look like the arena league. And look like the NFL football that we love because they have NFL caliber athlete who make the game. Look as powerful as fun. And as graceful as it is top moment. It's left with our Bleacher report compadres, Mike Freeman. All right. Walk me through the way AirAsia is either going to make a decision on Kyle Amaury. Or if you think they've already made one the decision they they make with Josh Rosen. Like, I think this is a really compelling problem for them everything I hear is they're they're taking Murray. I mean, we're we're still a little ways out rich. And things change on a dime in everything in his league's draft. But they really like him. And I gotta say I is not much. Not like, I mean, he's five ten. So what I mean the way the game is played now that doesn't matter. He's really smart people know him and his family, really really speak incredibly highly him. I think eras Zona sees of this and thinks we need we need to get this guy. I I don't think they're convinced this regime coaching staff that Rosen is their guy. And I think they're they're more than willing to go with that number one pick with Murray. That's the way that's the way seems now as you know, the stuff changes crazily rapidly. But Murray has impressed almost everyone in the league that who was coming contact with him who's worked out. Who has really positioned they love him. So I don't see how the card was doing the ways. But crazy things happen in this. If they do that then they have to draft him. And then make an announcement that they've traded Rosen on the spot to to exact draft choices in that very same draft. Right. They've got to have something in their right hand. Jorda pull out the minute that they give his name to the Commissioner. Yeah. I think I think when when they do that I think Josh Rosen will be playing somewhere else. And then we'll be taking those people who like him. They think he's got a good future. So if it will there will be ways to make this work out and some teams will be very interested. And who knows it could happen before that. But probably something like very quickly, you you drop them or you trade Rosen, and then you're good to go. And I think that's the way I think that's the way they what they should do only because I think Murray has much much brighter. Future. Especially the way the game is played now his his mobility. I'm not saying he's like my Vic. I'm not saying he's fast, but he's very capable of just moving around in the pocket. He's great at this. The way the NFL is changing the way the NFL's plate. Now wide open not as physical. He's perfect for that. He that's what he does. And I think the the cardinal see that Mike thanks for the call. I many appreciate you being here on the first day MBR live from Bleacher report. All right uneasy to do one thing for me. I need you rich live long and prosper. I shall do that like I shall do that I'm giving I'm giving you this maintained. It maintained take care of Mike at Mike Freeman NFL right here on the show, and we will know the answer to all of that one month from this very day. Day one month from this very day is day two of the draft. So know all the answers. Okay. When we come back Laird Hamilton and Gabrielle Reece together, wait to hear what they are doing together, and they will be right next to each other right next to my set, and I will just make sure that the maintainers keeps a strong core throughout the next second.

Great to have here together on the rich Eisen show. They've been on separately. But together as a couple Laird Hamilton and Gabrielle Reece. Good to see what's going on your lives. It's going on everything. I think like everybody we're trying to raise our daughters. Well, actually ones in the real world, and once has a job, can you believe it? What is she doing? She's reading light are which is like radar. I know it's hold on the side mailman something. We did some because no choice. Okay. So we tell our kids you can actually use your brain to make a living if you'd like to Florida State University. Gabriel highly. To your kids want to be different. So just figured how can they be different than my parents? All do. Okay, laser mapping. Yeah. So we're. As the kids and see if they can try to be, you know, it's a crazy time, you know, you've got small children, and when your kids tell years a little bit younger. You don't understand? We don't understand like what they have to navigate. It. Coming up is very it is truly different than what we're dealing with. So we're we're trying to learn and grow and the middle daughter's a little more is hitting tennis balls right now like a like a crazy person. She can't playing eight hours a day out of her own choice. Bright, you know, and then the youngest one. She's she runs the show pretty much. Five year old daughter runs the entire show. This is Jay we go layered. I don't usually say this to somebody before I've truly gotten a chance to get into a conversation. But I've been in your pool. Yeah. On if you're where of this. Right. Your dog Hudson. Yes came when I wasn't there. They'd gone out of you. Alderman. Gets a little stranger with your wife. And the dog told you the story Chris. Nearly lost my life in that. Because you put a vest of magnets, or whatever the hell this vest pallet lead leg we've evolved since then. Now, we do it with weights you can set down gently and get away from the beginning days. It was vested tread. And you're like, okay. Yeah. Yes. Before the extreme performance training started honing a little bit. I got the game of thrones treatment, we all went through to blurbs like just do this. And we were like, okay. So this was what you have. Now. What started what you have now evolved to in your in your performance training? Right. Is that I got in the pool with a vest. You're not weights of let's go tread water. And it was by the way. Excellent core. Exercise can live fear is a little bit also. Yes, a lot of fear and also some cardio like I didn't know that. I was actually sweating now. Thanks before you were working out. You were getting cardio venerating. This is you can say to people that you you. Did it the hard way? Because now what's so great about is. Now, we have all this stuff. You can do. It's can be really ballistic easy on the joints. We've made it. So whether you are afraid of the water, not good in the water, not a swimmer or amick. We have something for everybody XP itself is just the pool is one aspect of it. So it's really breed moving recover is really the philosophy behind that training, and it has to do with mobility breath work. I it speaks to longevity. I mean, it's not and we can subject anybody to it. It's not just you know subject, by the way. Yes. That's what I got subjected to by the way, I was a boss in the recovery part after that day. I mean, but this isn't my gosh. You hit people they train, especially athletes, and you go can you recovery day, and they go you do nothing and learn is a great example of somebody who has had obviously long jetty and performance. And and it's like, no, you can actively recover you can do things to participate in recovery. And the breathing is a big thing. Because it's also I always say, it's free, and you can do it everywhere. And it's the essence of life, which is most important thing to to performance as well. So Br breath is all about breath right at the end of the day, we give it very little importance. I mean, I can take top athletes, and I I run them through a breathing routine. And they really great at breathing. And they can they're not great cardio cardiovascular think they are. They think they're that. Because they can run around all day doesn't mean that you really have optimum breath were can you drop me a name on on. I would never do that on who has come on. Hyperventilating me, I'm not gonna come on. But icing. He big part of what we do too. That's a great tool. Even I come over again for the ice. Yeah. We've we've. Oh, my. Was Hof say the noble force? Nobody loves nobody's. Like love the ice. You know it. It's you got a it's the the usual McCain before gaining all of that Laird Hamilton Gabrielle Reece here on the rich Eisen show. That's the extreme performance training over thirty years of of putting this together. And I was part of the putting it together X P dot com. Life rider, heart body soul in life beyond the ocean written by you Laird and Julian Bora, what is what's this book about why did you decide to write this book? I mean, you know, I think the reason why we wanted to write it is because we felt like there was some things that we could share with people that that they could benefit from. And I it I kinda got a little bit of pressure to write it, actually, honest. Just by some friends that were like. Just assume pressure in other areas not about the book. Okay. I have your Turkey get into that definitely three years different topic. But no. And so there's some philosophy stuff in there. And there's some the nice thing about the book is is that it's it's I mean, I'm learning from it in the process of of of writing the book, there's a lot of research on island islanders and sociology around islanders in how living on island influences, you and being connected tribal, living the notion of sharing not owning you know. I think it's I can say is an outside person. Who's inside that the great thing is is that being in the ocean and being in nature. I think has taught learned a lot of really important lessons that he can communicate the safely, and it's about everyday things. And so it's not about surfing. And it's not about like being, you know, extreme, it's really a simplistic. And sophisticated way. I think of how Laird looks at things pretty clearly sometimes that's pretty neat. It's available were all books are sold right now. How did you guys me? I was hosting a television show, which was it was called the extremists. It was one that I did after I'm TV sports and Laird was a guest and. After first communication on. Like was that nice to me in the beginning? And you know, I mean, come on television host pretty attractive girl. I was like any didn't everything he's like, oh, it's a gun for hire some blonde girl. And then after he was much nicer, and I think we live together. Eight days later, hold on a second we walk through it. So you interviewed layered for this show. And by the way, it was handled by the way that she was doing the activities of the participant Guinea and use the was hang glide skydive or drag motor bikes like you do here. She. Side of the dash right activties. And and it was show that really came out of MTV sports the original. Okay. I was listened. Most of my guests like your show, I had paint maybe two or three women over the years, all athletes, and they were all guys. So it wasn't like, hey, let's look it's a dating service. I was there to work and. Professional. Okay. And then that all went out window when I met Leonard. Literally that was in one thousand nine hundred five so interview over and then they'll know that works chain. No, no, I'm sorry. I don't mean. No cell phones. No. I'm just kidding. No brought me to play volleyball with Larry was part of a crew called strap. They sort of created this tow in surfing back in those days. And when it was flat, they played beach volleyball who knew and so they asked me like two days later. Hey, will you come in play? And so I was shooting a horse polo segment. I said sure they brought me over one of the wives. And then I need a ride back to my hotel. And there was there. And he's the only one I knew. I had a car. Is it that easy four wheel dry? Actually was. Four-wheel-drive kind of girl. Yeah. About yourself function took you twenty three years to realize that it just right now. They're no, that's amazing. That's very, but you know, what listen, you know, this because you're in a in a marriage that with somebody that you love and respect very much is I well, that's true. But you start to realize the grass is greener, and if you're with somebody that you really like, and you're tracked to and you respect, and you can sort of get through stuff because people have asked us, oh, if you ever gone through things, and I'm like, well once in the thirty of our marriage and once in the eleventh year of our marriage, but not that. I remember, it's of course, it's hard. It's not perfect. She doesn't recover what I'm saying. And the reason I say that is because I feel like we are really lucky, and there might be this idea that it's oh, it's so perfect. And I never wanna sell that. What I want to sell is. We have a lot of things going for us, and we work at it. And and also when you're with somebody that you really can be with you gotta take care of that. You gotta you gotta. You got to you realize that that the thought of not being together is just not that's not something that you ever want experience. You're like, I don't ever not wanna be with you. So being with you. I'm gonna do whatever whatever I need to do to be able to be with you. And just that's why we train so we can make I mean train so he can still serve, but I train really second. Try to be sort of a nicer human nicer you'd see work things out through your your exercise. Yeah, underwater. My wife's the same way as well. So are you guys competitive with each other now that doesn't know people do compete with learn why would I do that? I can't win that race. Do you crazy? Well, there's no way only volleyball maybe years ago, but I don't play volleyball anymore than that. And that ended with me reading the back of the truck all the time in my face. So is that how it was like, oh now, we're competing in the one thing that I might have a fighting chance. I mean, I can say this. He's a very talented athlete. So it's not going to compete with him trying to compete with her. You know with intelligence, I don't even try. Okay. Yeah. You're smart or mental doodo. Can you live in for me? Smarter than her. Okay. One was the last Laird Hamilton Gabrielle Reece here on the rich as a few minutes left. What was the last time layered Ueda pizza? Cauliflower piece of color pizza. Does that count me sooner? That would be me. It was pretty good. I'm I'm none alert. I'm talking about real like, you aren't. See you aren't like cheese. Yeah. Yeah. So you saw me like the real cauliflower? No, let's not trying veggie like a real deal. Okay. I would I would anyone. When I like known onto saying, I'm capable of eating him. I just I don't remember actually when the last time I, but I, but I would like I'm not some sort, no. Wanna be able to you know, you can't listen, I I don't think it's good to to have a system that is so fragile. If you throw a slice of pizza in there. Yeah. It reach having. I think you need to be able to sure if you gotta go somewhere in each something. And it's like. Same truck. It just you little water in the fuel might make a few little this fires. But you're still going. You're still we're still rolling. We don't we don't want. We don't need high. Wound, you know. Whoops. The fuel ratio was wrong. Boom, we blew the motor. I don't want. I don't I scratched not about ice cream. That's actually the one of the worst things you can eat. Nomination as we wanted eight real real real ice cream, which I mean with. Real raw raw dairy cow. No churn. It very some real. It would be that would be. That's why cream is ice cream because in its in its original state. It was the incredible now when you're. Anything labels? We feel like we're in denying ourselves. You've had is. No, right. No. Yes. I think he realizes what you have to you. Don't do it for a long period of time. You actually don't really miss it. Will you create what you feed you crave? What you feed that's the rule. So you know that if you're consuming. Yes, if you're consuming a lot of sugar sweet, you're going to be because people go you have sit willpower will actually I'm just craving. I cram other pre like at the end of dinner.

Royal, great, that's cranky. We're missing out is that it. How do I say this? He just wants to be. No. I think you're I do think you're missing a little bit. Okay. So I would like to be as as healthy as being healthy. Like, I have me replacement Leonard houses hip, he's surfing big waves were, you know, listen, it's I think for both of us.

But it's very those those very fresh ingredients as having though the food. Iran. Just looked he's a human being right? Learn Hamilton's human being we we think excuse me. I'm a human being his human being we're both mere mortals.

So I'm going to just take some yogurt and just go crazy on macadamia nuts. And I'm so fired up about that. What would it take for me?

Well, that's what he's gone, but he's got and he's fifty fifty five. He's I mean, he's driving fifty five. That's crazy. That's crazy. Also, our second ever guests wehre open. Toed sandals. And the first one was the defense in the fan. Well, also, don't forget we'll feral came onto Octo bers ago the day before Halloween dressed head to toe as Jesus with account with a with a with a dodger hat on because it was in the middle of the World Series loss to the Houston Astros. And he had he had sand. Somebody socks on. Right. He had sandals on. So. And Matthew berry came on. And we he borrowed socks didn't have socks. So. The White Sox. Those were called his shins and hit. No, he wasn't night sock. They looked on camera. Hey, I don't blame them. Hey, look. And again, the folks that be are live. You know, they're they're maybe just learning what the show is. If they haven't full-service, we are you come in. You know, you need a jacket. We've got a jacket. Need socks you pair shorts? We'll we'll give service you if you don't come with. Pair shorts. We once retired your shorts. You're you're you're you're longtime. They weren't cargo shorts where they. I forget where I was. And it was some cargo short retirement was one of the best things raised to the rafters. Go. It wasn't actually I can't wear them anymore. They're gone. I'm saying ripped in a very unfortunate place could have been repaired. Let's put it this way. Andy reid. Could've worn those shorts. In the coaches photograph. True. I mean, the man's spread Andy Reid. It's just like, okay. I'm gonna sit down and I'm putting one foot here. I'm put one foot there. And I'm saying cheese k take the picture, and I'm gonna take this foot and that foot, and I'm gonna get up, and then I'm gonna take another picture at the buffet table. All right. That is by the way, by the way. Here's the scoop with all the conversation. We've had about the replay in what what they're going to vote on how last night, they might they Sean Payton said that they were going to add. Interference interference or the ability to coach challenge. Noninterference call that should be inference. In other words, close a loophole that the NFC champ game. Drove a Mack truck through. Apparently, it's so confusing as to what they're voting on that they're tabling. This may. A vote was supposed to happen at seven o'clock eastern, four o'clock Arizona time where they are that they're just going to be. Let's get our ducks in a row and deal with this. In may interesting. What do you read into that? You know? I mean. What get shot down? It's all coming on right now the fourth and fifteen was shot down. No way. Oh, come on. That would have been great bombs still. We're still going to go out there and onside kick it. That's so mazing. Af it really really great. It's well done. Yeah. It's amazing. And the overtime rule is also been tabled. The rule is the Kansas City rule that everybody's got a touch it. At least once the problem with that is is that if you had a rule that just using the AFC championship game as a as an example, if you had a rule that because we don't want to have Pat Mahomes standing on the sideline with his thumb in his you know, what? And that's the end of his season. Didn't get a chance to touch it. And over time just because they lost a coin toss and the defense couldn't stop Tom Brady and deformed you're now new San Francisco pass rusher jumped off sides. That let you say that this will passes and that the Brady walked down the field and scored a touchdown. My question is is what the patriots have still been as aggressive to score. Touchdown knowing that the chiefs would get the ball, regardless. Would they have continued to try and get a touchdown as opposed to just get touched on the end the game knowing that the touchdown wouldn't end the game. Would they have called the plays any differently potentially? Let's just put a pin in that. Right. For sure the chiefs getting the ball second knowing they had a score touchdown changes. They're they're putting they're going. The patriots get the ball. I it's four and three from their forty seven yard line. They're punting, right. Correct. Because it's it's it's playoff overtime. It's not like there's going to be a tie your punning to live another day. And you're going to try and pin? Kansas City back you try and get him three and out. Now all you need to do is just go short field for field goal to win the game. Right. But kansas. Let's just put it this way. Kansas City gets the ball after giving up a touchdown fourth and three from their forty six. They're going for it. Because they have a different circumstance getting the ball second. I don't know how you change this rule. Even if Gant go the other way, the patriots get the ball. It's their fourth and three on the thirty eight they kick a fifty five yard field goal. Knowing the Kansas City gets the ball after they go for it to try to get a touchdown to make Kansas City have to get a touch. I don't think you can perfect the rule that they currently have in place that I like that if it's a field goal. The other chance team is chance to respond if it's a touchdown. Too bad. Stop them. Stop them. You gave up three third and longs. Stop them. By the way. How about the fact that gronkowski's last catch of his career was that big one that set up the only touchdown of the Super Bowl? Biggest play the game hands down is not even close second. Not even close second. And then apparently will find out later today. If the league is gonna vote on the instant replay rules or table at till may. That's looked the onside kick. I it's kind of what is that Elza? I know you've looked up before that a fifteen percent chance. Eighteen percent chance for an onside kick and that even seems high right out of ten of. I can't remember any big. I guess they're assuming in this offense of Dan age of fourth and fifteen is no big whoop. I mean, it's a significant chunk of yardage. But we've seen it happen. Oh, wait a minute. You remember the Fred ex that was four th the twenty fourth and twenty six twenty six. The Fred X the Freddie Mitchell play, by the way, my favorite, Freddie, Mitchell. Nickname from self was Sultan of the slot. That was my favorite one. Thank my hands for being so great. Oh my gosh. I say that every day. And then Bill Belichick said we loved every time. He was in the game. And they knew he wasn't going to do anything tomorrow show. Billy Corgan director will be on. He's got a new documentary on the biogenesis scandal called screwball. And so while we're just going to just take any chance of getting a rod on the show and just tortured flames Jose can't take will join us tomorrow as well. He's. Dave Roberts dodgers manager. Will join us tomorrow as well. Baseball round on corner. Thursday, the second official opening day of major league baseball. Well, the Giral. Zero opening day. Right. I still give me started by the way. Eat your oh tapping out. That was a very nice moment. With Ken Ken Griffey junior being there as cool. We'll discuss that on Thursday with big Mariners fan McCain when he stopped by person on Thursday four fifty two onside kick attempts were coming. Come on come on. Let's let's up that a little bit allied or Orlando. Magic senior vice president Pat Williams will be on Thursday show as well. Final police over there Christopher we're back yet who should the patriots play on the Sunday night football opener. Thirty seven percent Cleveland Browns. Thirty three percent Kansas City Chiefs. Well. And I think those two games are better off later on in the season. Let me see what the Steelers looked like right off the bat with Big Ben Antonio Brown. Elsewhere we talked about while you were gone who do you wanna see on hard knocks a lot of push for Brown's back back here at the raiders. Can we get grew mayall Antonio Brown? They are eligible in lock it. It's a no brainer in Napa. Peak. Rick red wine, which I know Mayock Lexa lot found as Bertha come on. How do we not get Antonio Brown? Mr. big chest and Murray as me.

REShow: Guest Host Kirk Morrison and Mike Freeman. Hour 1 (03-20-19)

"Orig- is on demand. Your show your schedule. Fifteen minutes after ball dot com. Check out the casts at richeisenshow dot com. Welcome in the rich Eisen show. Kirk Morrison filling in for it. He still on vacation enjoying himself as always, and I'm just living through rich as he's taking pictures. He still thinking in Rome and all over the Coliseum. The guys are still here. Rockman Bill to fold. Yeah. You guys still hear about posting nothing, but work picture. Bitch jealous that we're here here working. I mean, yeah, no worries. I'm I'm sit in. Hopefully, I'm doing a great job in keeping the seat. Nice and warm for rich when he comes back from vacation. But today is Wednesday of the the big sports week. I call it because it's the eve of the college basketball tournament NCW tournament and last night. I got a little taste of it. You know last night. I got a little bit of taste of the I four you had two games last night. I can raise my hand. And now tell everybody I am all in two in the tournament. Doesn't count. I went tipple tough last night in temple loss to Belmont last night eighty one to seventy and in the first game, I'm excited about it was preview fairly Dickinson. And I'm like, okay. I'm gonna go with preview because I watched him play in tournament game last week. So I was like I got some familiarity there because I watched preview and in last night, they had a great first half but fairly Dickinson. They came back in the second half. When it game eighty to seventy six fairly Dickinson gets into the tournament. Now think they take on Gonzaga in the first round. That's that's what you get for winning the first four adulation regulations urine. But guess what you gotta go play against zags. And Belmont, congratulations. You now get the play Maryland. It's always fun. When you start off the tournament that way 'cause you watch some of the pageantry of just college basketball and for me last night. I went Owen too. But I thought that there were some comments last night after that first four game from fairly Dixon. Head coach Rick Arinda who really to me kind of put a lot of people out there on notice to say this is a tournament. Not just about one player. Take a listen coach Gregor into. Kids that are watching this tournament. I know you wanna watch John and you wanna watch all the great ones. So do I. But the these are the heroes these the heroes the kids that are like the people watching TV that get better every day. That's why March to me is is mad. It's man. Yeah. It's mad madness. But I get it coaches on point with that one. Like this tournament is really going to be all about Zayn. And how far do goes? I mean, how many people right now are filling out brackets and everybody just going do do do do do do all the way to the championship. I don't have duke'll winning the championship. I actually have another team. I'll release that team. Probably either later I can do that later today because the tournament does start tomorrow, and I can let you know who I feel will win this year's NC double A tournament. But I thought he was correct in his assessment. There are some other great players. And I know we'll have Fran for show at the top of the hour. And I would ask him the same thing. There's going to be someone. Who steals our hearts remember last year? It was UM B C, Maryland Baltimore County and going into like, okay? Who's this school? And all of a sudden they went a game. They knock off Virginia. Like, wow. And they became the darlings of the tournament. Right. So who's going to be the darling of this tournament? That's what it's going to be all about and on black coach, you know, horrendo- was able to let everybody know it's not about Duke, anxiety or some other great basketball players not one and done guys guys who have been here three or four years. So we get a chance to really see tonight. So I'm excited as we have two more games tonight going on. I forget which have tonight. It's the North Carolina central versus North Dakota state. So that's the next I four game in Saint John's Arizona state that we get a chance to see those two guys clashes. We get ready for finally the real tournament starts tomorrow. This is kind of what I love about the tournament because if temple and Belmont are playing a Tuesday game. January that doesn't get a second thought from ninety five percent of the country. The casual sports fans are not tuning in to watch fairly Dickinson and prairie view. However. Yes, mid-march comes around. It's a game. It's a great game. And suddenly with four minutes to go. I'm locked in watching this Belmont comeback. And it's just phenomenal. And that's the beauty of March. It's the glory of March madness and what makes this tournament. So awesome. Because no one is truly correct. Like yesterday. I was so excited strong about my picks on temple you. Our we go baby. And I'm watching that game early on because I I wanna make sure I gotta gloat like if I was correct. If I came in to no, you probably would want to turn this off. Research for tomorrow. So who do you like tonight? So I can bet the opposite. Feel bad. You know what? So I'm a big Chris Mullin fan. Grope a warriors fan. So I gotta go with Saint Johns. Okay. Hopefully if out there, listen, but no Saint John's and in North Carolina central versus North Dakota state. I think I may go North Dakota state always feel like the senior Laden teams. Always find a way to make that comeback at the end. You gotta find a nice low pay. So I'm North Dakota state and Saint John's tonight, that's that's my pick. So you can pick against me. You'll probably be correct. So but other news last night. Again, James harden, John ascended to Cuco to players gonna come down the stretch to the MVP of the NBA now Janas didn't play last night. But James harden accomplish something else to add to his MVP resume already. He's scored thirty points this season versus the other twenty nine teams in the NBA just sick everyday. You turn on the television as hard and doing something pretty crazy. I'm not sure that everybody out there knew that. There was a baseball game last night or last night or this morning. I guess over in Japan over at the Tokyo dome. That's right. The seattle. Mariners beat the Oakland A's nine seven last night or this morning, depending on where you were in the baseball opening day had no idea I'm not gonna lie to we had Jeff pass it on yesterday. And we were talking about the big news of baseball was about the Mike trout deal. Right. But we're likely there was an actual game last night between the Mariners in the as and I ask you guys are you into the whole opening day somewhere else, you know, in a different country, different continent, and not you know, here in the US have that first actual game. This is what I'm talking about major league. Andrew was on Andrews Donohoe's, Friday, and must've called major league baseball stupid like dozen times. And it was a little harsh regard to some of their new rule changes and pay supply issues. But this is the dumbest thing ever like major league baseball opening day is an American institution baseball, America's pastime. What are we doing? What are we doing? This should be celebrated of it should be a whole day of opening day after March madness after you know, our final four like major league baseball. This should have been celebrated this overnight, and no one no one knew it happened. I get the breaking news to me. I had no idea. This was going on. I had no idea. What up in the morning? I'm like oh nine seven. What does spring training? No this was March twentieth. Yeah. This you're growing the game. You know globally. I get it understand it. But for me opening day is always sacred. And I get it. You want to grow the game? But I'm used to knowing that the first game of the season is me going out skipping school hanging out with my parents or my dad and going to a baseball game watching twelve hours a baseball on one day because it's opening day. And it's so exciting and everyone has the exact same record and the exact same chances of winning the World Series not anymore. Not anymore. Watch that gave. Starting at March March and fan. So we got that baseball to cover. We've got some Bill newsy finally weighs in on Ben Rothlisberger. But I think the biggest news coming out of yesterday. Was there was these rumors Laker rumors once you when you hear Laker rumors is like all of a sudden they start the manifest and you start throwing fuel to the fire. But I guess there was a big fire extinguisher in terms of putting out of a rumor or fired because Doc Rivers the head coach of the clippers pre-game before his team took on the Indiana Pacers yesterday, he quickly extinguished those fires take a listen to Doc Rivers pre-game. Oh, we gotta get ready. We gotta here we go. Doc, Rivers pre-game. In this right now. Magic Johnson are very close friends as you know. And that's what we are. Good friends. I have great respect for him. But the whole history of everything Steve bomber. And I have had a we have a great relationship. And you know, this summer we decided to extend my contract, and he did something and I'm going to throw this out because I just think it's worth saying because it tells you a lot about Steve he did something that I don't think any owner would do he gave me an out. Where I could opt out the summer if I wanted to. But you know, it was like we wanted to test each other make sure that we thought this was the right fit. We thought everything would work, right? But we wanted to make sure and as my dad said trust everybody, but cut the cards, you know, so it was one of those things and then early in this year, we both decided let's in this thing take this out extending it make it a longer deal. Doc Rivers that was pre game yesterday before the clippers took on the Indiana Pacers in which they won that game last night. I don't believe him. He's still going to be the Lakers coach fifteen one on outta here. He basically put it out there. I am not love me. Imagine your friends, but I am not going to be the coach of the Lakers. We see I worked for a great ball. And Steve bomber the owner of the clippers. But to me that was breaking news. Base. They look we we talked about it. There was I had an out in. I didn't really want the out. I think what it was was that. Hey, look, there was a plane that we're going to get rid of some stars going to make some trade. We're going to do some things on which you're not gonna have probably the roster that you may want. But let's just see how it goes. And they start winning and they start winning and right now in place if the playoffs were to start today, you know, how we always say the clippers will be the seat and right now, they're the better team in Los Angeles. And with all these rumors circulating float around. I applaud Doc Rivers for just basically look and doing it before a game. This wasn't post game. This was before his game. Say look, I am not going anywhere. I'm staying right here. So another blow to the Los Angeles Lakers team in which while LeBron James comes you think you've got it figured out and yet now back to the drawing board again. So we could talk about that throughout the show in terms of who else can coach the Lakers, and this crazy thing we're talking about. Other coaches, but they still have a coach a place right now. Yeah. But only for like three. Yeah. Well, speaking of coaches in waiting there's a coaching coaching weight, and he's actually the coach in Cleveland. The NFL franchise Cleveland Browns. A lot of people aren't talking enough about him. But one guy in particular Hesam critical thoughts about him. That's one Mike Freeman of Bleacher report he'll be joining us.

You want to recognize good price? When you're ready to buy New Year's car. Visit truecar enjoy more confident car buying experience. Okay. So we mentioned this yesterday little bit with the Tonio Brown signing with the raiders. And then Bontes Burford signs last night. And just the raiders general. We're talking hard knocks. Right. Who do you guys want to see on hard knocks this year? So we got the raiders and the giants they are eligible. They're one of the five teams eligible the other three are, you know, not as sexy as the raiders giants. Let's the Browns in their everyone's talking about them even though they did it last year. But of course, acquiring Odell Baker Mayfield pretty kitchens, we'll be Vernon all the personalities they have. And then let's put the Steelers on there. Just because they're a constant drama fill team and the team that everyone I think wants to see year after year, but they'll never do it. Let's put the. Patriots on their raiders giants. Browns Steelers patriots? Okay. I'll I'll go first with I want the raiders I want that autumn win. I mean, the Tonio Brown vaunted Bertha CT dynamic right now two guys who played in the bitter bitter AFC north rivals. Now, become friends. I wanna see that. Did you guys see the picture over the weekend, by the way of keep to leave and Michael Crabtree outside of a skate park. No picture float around. They actually were you know, Fran guy who took his chain on the field and Michael Crabtree have made up. So if those guys could make up thinking Tonio Brown involuntary birth watching them play out on hard knocks. I would definitely go for that. And I'm rank those later so when we go back to the guys which teams that we can definitely see on hard knocks. But a guy who will want to I would love to ask. And he's joining us now, Mike Freeman of Bleacher report. Look, I I saw you tweet yesterday Mike, so I caught a no you want. But is this truly the team that you wanna see for hard knocks? Is it truly the raiders what you guys the first of all queue up their raiders now? Now already been orders already that Augmon. Here's the autumn window auto Cocco raider. Yeah. Really fun. Interesting team of a sudden where you have until Neo Brown. And then you have the guy who knocked until new Brown. This team, which is crazy Gruden is always an interesting to watch. I've been sort of stunned at how mayo has been able to come in there. I mean, just it was always fun guy to watch a really knowledgeable guy. You knew he knew his stuff but going to that franchise and working with Gruden who has got his really set in his ways. And I'm not think saying and didn't wanna do any. Of course, he did these moves strike me as a very sort of very solid football moves that are building a foundation that are looking forward that are really to me. A lot of them are moves. Whereas when Gruden was kinda running the show, they things seem more chaotic, and it seems like mayo his bought a sense of solidarity, a solid footing to the franchise. Not all their Ricky move some of them. I mean bringing perfect is risky. But they are. I think some of these things are really. Mart. So there's not even number two three four five on this automatic. There was a report yesterday. The analytics company said that the raiders move of trading. Khalil Mack Lascher was the move of the year. And what some of the moves the raiders have made this off season. Whether it's by trade or free agency, you start to see sort of the foundation being built. And now you see the vision in front of you are have we finally gotten past the trade of Khalil Mack last year. And y'all see where the raiders can be moving forward with these first round draft choices. Repre great question, and the answer is a little complicated. I I don't know if you ever get past trading a guy who would go to Kogyo. I mean, he was good in right? But he goes to Kogyo and is just like out of this world. So do you ever get past the guy trading guy like that? I don't know it's but a lot of the answer depends on what happens in with some of these future picks what they do with them how well they draft. I mean, I've been really impressed with them. I think they've done so far. So it's sort of bodes well that they'll be able to draft. Well, but I get real getting rid of Khalil Mack was one of thought. One of the craziest moves and dumbest moves I've ever seen. And but if they can turn it around and get some how get some kind of franchise quarterback or get more players not gonna get a Khalil Mack is so unique and special, but they can use these picks keep building foundation, and I never thought and. A million years ago. I get on the Brown. Right. So the doing things that are to me. I mean, getting Cleal MAC was not to me, not smart, but they're doing they're making up for it in a lot of different ways. And and to me, some really smart ways, you know, the the when you look at just the landscape of the NFL right now, it's been the big trades. Right. It's been you know, teams I feel like okay, we can contend, and I say I start that by saying the Browns last year, go seven eight and one and everybody was like to throw a parade and this year, they make the big trend. Now, you know for a guy like oh Beckham junior. Obviously Baker Mayfield going into his second season. But in reading your column on Bleacher report, I think we aren't talking enough about the head coach without the prior experience. Not just as a head coach Mike, but even as an offensive coordinator, he didn't have the experience. And now you're asking him to kind of lead these men like how difficult a job does. Freddie kitchens having front of them. Well, you you played in the league you've been in a locker room. Right. You know, what it's like it. It's a place of very strong personalities some strong than others some in some locker rooms more stronger than others. But I think what we're seeing with the Browns is that's going to be there's a lot of personalities in. They're the two primary being the the quarterback in and Beckham. So how does a guy go in and do that it is not a long history of very young or very inexperienced rather guys going locker room where there's a lot of strong personalities, and immediately succeeding that you may have to see you have to just be patient with him for a little bit. And and allow him to get his footing and get the respect of those players. And I know there's people say you should do with the coach says that's not how NFL works anymore. Sit in the nineteen fifties. You have to really get the players to buy in. And the players they believe in you. I mean, you live this, you know, this you can't just walk in a locker room anymore, and and twenty nineteen and said do what I say, they gotta believe in you. You have to convince them that's the way the sports world is now, and this is gonna be the challenge for him. He doesn't have a track record the fall back on. He's not so on Peyton going in there. He's not Bill Belichick going in there. He's a guy that I think the offense they really like him Mayfield likes him. But he now has to work with the whole team, and that's gonna be very tricky for guy with with very little experience. But they end up being. And I I know it's crazy back any believe say what's going on my mouth, they could be a Super Bowl contender. I can't even I almost pass out when I say that. I mean, it's true though, they are loaded and that is going to be his challenge is not just getting the buy in. But getting all that talent to work together. And. Going to have more talented draft. So it's gonna be they're gonna be really fun to watch with Bleacher report columnist Mike Freeman joining the rich Eisen show Kirk Morrison filling in for rich, but what about the saga or the soap opera the reality series of the Pittsburgh Steelers. I mean, it's you getting the comments of on Bill just recently talking about, you know, the organization wants to win but been rothlisburger wants to win his way we knew there was drama within the organization. Terms of some players in the way that Ben Rothlisberger is leading. How do you see this team the Pittsburgh Steelers kind of overcoming all of this the shadows? And in doubt of some of the players who have now left the lock room. How do we look at the Steelers review them now? This is a this is one of the big stories entering the next year. The all season next year is you know, in Tokyo Brown, isn't there to blame things on anymore? Levy bell, isn't there to blame things on anymore? This is now officially without question Rothlisberger team. So how will this go? And it's going to be interesting because you you Antonio Brown was a convenient foil for a lot of people. I'm not saying agree with everything you did. I didn't. But I always thought the criticism of him was was was way too harsh same Levy on bell. They're not they're gone now. And I I'm interested to see what happens when a team loses that kind of talent. I mean Tonio Brown is best wide receiver in football. Levy on bell to me was the best running back in football. That is. A lot of talent to lose. And and essentially one or two years. I mean what how does it team recover from that? And Ben isn't back not like twenty three. So this is gonna be really interesting to watch. And how would you choose to react to not living off of until Brown being double teamed? We know Connor had a good year. But he will he be able to be healthy the whole year. We'd be able to stay healthy and do come close to Levy on bell. Maybe can maybe can't. And what will bend look like these? There was a lot of questions in Pittsburgh. And I think the fans are going to be surprised to see maybe not maybe they won't be. But a lot of people who just don't get that that kind of talent doesn't come along every year. You don't get into oneal Brown's a year or Levy bells all time. Turn to your losses into twenty two yard games. That is a hard thing to find in the league. And they just lost two of those guys. So let's see how that goes which reports Mike framing join the program here. Rich Eisen Kirk Morrison filling in for rich to think about this though. Mike cut throw you for a loop here. The last quarterback to beat the Steelers in the playoffs was who. Ooh. Last quarterback steals in the playoffs. Yeah. I'm not sure who it was Blake Bortles in the divisional round. Looking at how how soon we forget how soon we forget that Blake Bortles beat the Pittsburgh Steelers in the last playoff appearance. And now we fast forward to Nell. Blake Bortles is now the backup to golf in Los Angeles. I was reading your piece a little bit earlier in. It's one thing people like why why Blake Bortles would you sign him? But when you think about it, isn't this the right move for guy. Like, Blake Bortles. It's perfect to me. I mean, I know that your initial reaction you just great point out. Blake Bortles was he was seen as pretty good by the league. And he just completely fell off a cliff, but he was seen as pretty good. And he's now going to situation where there's no pressure on them. And you can see what McVeigh did with your golf was pretty remarkable. I know jerk off did not have a good SuperBowl. I get that. But oh year golf was really good. And a lot of that is because of obviously him, but also because McVeigh so maybe McVeigh can do the same thing with Bortles. I mean Bortles has looked so bad last year, but he can turn it around. And there's no pressure on him. He's now the backup and he's working with some really good offensive talent. So it's not it's pretty I think it's a pretty good move by the initially. I was like this is crazy. But then when you talk to people around the league about it, if it was pretty smart, and I think is a pretty good move to. You know, Mike, I do want to get your thoughts on what the New York Giants are doing because it's are they rebuilding. Are. They not are the I in a quarterback or they not they just trade away. Odeal Beckham junior for you said Antonio Brown is number one. I don't know where we put kind of Odell Beckham Z three. I know he's top five, but you try to trade that a way if you're the New York Giants as we try to look at the vision of where this team is going. What are they need to do upcoming in this draft? Is it drafting a quarterback in the with the pick that they have early on at six or do they sit back and wait another year under manning? What gives here? It's a great question. And I think a lot of people have no clue the giants doing. I mean, it the moves are making make no sense. They get rid of Odell Beckham for what seems to be just a just purely out of they think he's a headache. I don't think he really was. Right. But they think he was so you get rid of him, and you bring it in older receiver and golden takes a lot. Right. But that doesn't make sense you keep a quarterback who was clearly on the downside. He bought it to Super Bowls. He's had a really good career. But he's not the same guy. He's on. He's he's going downhill pretty fast. Now, they draft draft a quarterback some of that can make sense. But they're they're doing things that to me really smack of just getting rid of guys. They just don't think personalities mesh stuff trying to figure out ways to make it work. I don't think Odell Beckham. Was that much of a headache? I mean, he kicked a net punch the wall. Who cares? It's not like he's out getting arrested. Correct. Doing crazy stuff off the field. And he went on a boat one time. So it's to me. I was a lot of that was over blown thought the giants completely overreacted with him and got rid of. I mean, if he's not to three he's definitely top five. I think he's more like two or three that's second third best receiver in the league. And they got rid of them. I don't understand when teams it just doesn't make sense to me. When teams get rid of these star elite players and don't get as much return. And it makes no sense to me. I don't understand what the giants are doing. But if they get quarterback of good quarterback, it can help salvage at least some of this speaking with Bleacher report columnist Mike Freeman here. Only richeisenshow Kirk Morrison filling in for rich. But last question for you might because this. More of a sensitive topic in terms of Tyree keel in the Kansas City Chiefs, you know, right now the investigation is underway on what's, you know, going on our alleged to have happened with Tyree Keough if you're the Kansas City Chiefs in everybody's kind of putting them as a Super Bowl favorite in terms of getting to the game and possibly winning. If you have to lose out on tyreek hill for you know, I don't know six games games. If anything does come out of the how do you view this team now without probably one of the best weapons in the NFL? Well, I'm it's it's a really as you said, it's a really crazy sensitive topic. Right. And I hate to break it down along football lines, something potentially devastating. But this is what we do for a living. This is a sport we cover what we talk about. I think if there's some type of punishment for hill. I it would it would change the dynamic there little bit because he was is. Was whatever we're gonna say he he is a he a really remarkably talented player who can transform a game in an instant because of his speed. And that made that offense very very scary. And without him. It's still good, right? I mean that quarterback is incredibly talented. But if they do end up losing him if that doesn't up happening it takes away an element of for them. That was really that that that made defenses really nervous because he could on any single play at any time. Just just score. He was he's that fast. He's that good. But this is gonna this whole case is going to be interesting to watch. It just does not sound good. Yeah. From reading it seen from afar. Don't know. What happen? It may not maybe he may not. Have done anything. But you there was an element. There's some truth to saying that do you give the guy the benefit of doubt what he was up from previous incidents. So this is gonna be very very interesting to watch. It's going to be another one of those stories watching L. What's as you know, the NFL season? Never ends the season goes forever. It's going to next year. My man it's going to start with the raiders hard knocks there. And the raiders. Can we get the writers music again when we're talking? What what? Yeah. Like del tufo NCW tournament to mass. That's what he's worried about trying to pick out his brackets, Mike Freeman Bleacher report columnist predate the time as always my man. Appreciated love love what you do love. What you do? All right. Thanks, Mike, Mike Freeman Bleacher report columnist there. I think he hit it. I think it's it should be overwhelming. The raiders should be the team. So we'll get that update on the poll question. We're revisited again for people who didn't hear more here on the rich Eisen show. Kirk Morrison filling in for rich.

Santana drives the opposite way hit pretty well. This one. Designed to be. One of the other way where grand slam ring yard. We'll go back to the rich Eisen show. Hurt Morrison rich and dominion, Santana homerun will grand slam and I was his only hit at the game, by the way one for five. But the one that he got was the probably the most important one the nice little round-tripper. Everybody coming across the there was a baseball game. I guess you can say when's day warning Wednesday late Tuesday night. There's another one at five thirty five AM eastern time tomorrow same thing. It'd be the Mariners against the as again. So for those who are Jones for some real baseball. Yes, they're still spring training going on. But there's a real one that counts over until KIO. So got to revisit the poll question again because Mike Freeman came on. He says he's all in on the raiders for hard knocks. Let's get an update quickly on the poll question. Yeah. He said there's only one choice we got five which team. Do you want to see on hard knocks this year? Raiders giants Browns Steelers patriots raiders running away with? The right now sixty one percent Brown. Second twenty percent. So I got raiders one Browns too. I want Steelers three. Okay. Okay. If I had a choice patriots giants ago patriots for in the giants at five, you know? I'll just all. Cameron's Dave Gettleman twenty four seven. So we can know what actually he's thinking what the actual plan is in New York. I feel he won't tell us. So we need to see it a hard knocks camera on ally. Manning everyday like what we get out of that. You know what I mean? Like, we get all the what we just boring. No because we get a bunch of means, you know, the face just don't you? Make him breakfast. Spill some milk face. Coffee too hot. Yeah. I want the raiders though that that'd be fun. Because I I think Mike is kinda right? It's the only way plus I may get some get some run. Might get a little run getting a little Ron pop in pop in you know, in. I mean, raiders alumni weekend might go SCO come down. So they haven't the first weekend of training camp. Okay. So I'm going to find the camera say you've obviously participated in many of those can you walk us through what that's like who comes back. What legends? Oh face. So you get raiders legends. Obviously, you're going to get you know, Willie Brown, you know, free Linton. The cough. You get first of all I it's it's guys who I watched growing up. So you get you know, like a Calvin branch. You know, what I mean, you get sorry cliff branch I'll play with Calvin Calvin zone, but cliff branch, you get those guys you get who else man like writer legends. Ho Jackson show Jackson has not showed up. How long you may get how to come through. But he's he's probably up in Montana at you know, at the over at his cabin hanging out a little bit guys who Plunkett, probably roles talk. It will roll through goddess. I mean, literally, it's Kim Brown. Probably every Brown may come through. Now, we haven't seen Marcus Allen there yet. But he make. I mean, honestly, there's this first of all no one does it like the raiders Ashley, I mean, there's other alumni groups around whether teams is great. But like for me because I actually grew up in Oakland was born and raised that we do go to these. You know, this this weekend. Remember where the weekend is at first of all the raiders training camp is in Napa, California in wine country. So you go to this beautiful winery, the best backdrop and all these great wines. And all of a sudden, I see like all of these football cards come to life. You know what I mean? Like, literally just one. Wow. Okay. That's Jim Plunkett. That's well Willie Brown you see things like art shale, man. These are all the guys who I grew up watching novel sudden walk in pass me, and now Jon Gruden will be kind of conducting the ceremonies a little bit. So it's going to be fun to try to see if the hard knocks may be capturing some of those moments. We'll try to find my way to a camera actually seen. I I never participated in a hard knocks actual, you know, the taping in terms of my team. Sure. But you know, me covering the Rams here in Los Angeles. I was there in that Jeff Fisher year. Right. And I watched you know. Of a practice or two or three with the hard knocks cameras around everywhere. It's you know, maybe until tufo how many cameras on an average. Do you think for HMO for that? They got him a planet. So you don't see a lot of them. So they use you know, when they're in those glunz. Yes. So that you don't see him in the Mike just hidden. So those guys are natural. And then they of course, having fallen around and they're Mike up for all the field stuff. But it's problem guessing, they're probably up in the thirty or it might even be more. I could find out exactly all worker. That's something. When you were that, you would have been interested in or thought was cool or maybe more of a distraction. Oh. I think it may have been a distraction in the beginning. But from the guys who I've always talked to they said at the end of the day, it's not necessarily distraction once you got into a week or two and to train and can't you kind of forget all about it. But it's always weird that we watch the Super Bowl. Right. And we always get the audio and the sound of everything, and I don't think any of the players realize how that they're Mike. The you know what I mean? I think they get we get forget it the the raw emotion of playing an NFL game or even just at practice. I think you just are. So caught up in focus on your job in that moment. But you don't know your mic up because I've been miked up four-game before I know, but you gotta make sure you let other players on the team. Hey, good. That's the signal. You got a pet. So if you ever see guys in an NFL game guys walking he's going to beat the test. No, he's not doing LeBron. Silence. He's actually telling everybody. Hey, I got a Michael hot mic weight. And so you were with falling the Rams covering the Rams aren't hard knocks were you there for the Jeff Fisher famous. We're not going seven to nine speech. I was not there for the seventy ninth speech. But I was there for the don't touch thirty. Oh, yes. He said a practice. I mean, this is when Gurley was coming off that rookies outstanding rookie season and that was during the high style offense offense two thousand sixteen high school offense. And you know, you don't you didn't touch thirty m eal was tiger lilies team. And and it was the first year. You know Rams returning the Los Angeles. It was a lot. I mean that whole entire season was kind of. And I think they caught Jared Goff not knowing knowing. Roseline east and sets in the west. And so that's how you knew how old he was because he had never heard ice cubes on. The ice cubes. So forgot what soggy actually was but growing up. Honestly, I learned that from ice cube song before learned from school the sun rises in the east, but a sets in the west. Amazon west. West up. But I think it's gonna be good for the raiders if they do get. I mean, honestly, you know, Roger Goodell the NFL they they want to kind of not only expand the brand, but that raider shield that logo right? Get ready for Las Vegas is just kinda just it produces everybody. It's also awesome. As the raiders is one of the worldwide brands of the National Football League. You know, think about the five teams you think of when you think of the NFL the Cowboys and the Packers and the Steelers patriots of kinda made their way in there now. And it's the raiders there's raider fans everywhere raider nation is a real thing as you know, is having them on hard knocks. I think would just be outstanding it's brand recognition and kind of I say brand recognition because tomorrow is the opening day of the, you know, college basketball tournament, and I have no idea some of the players that'll be playing no idea, but it is brand recognition for me. Duke, right, Kentucky, Kansas North Carolina. Now. Syracuse brand realization for tomorrow. And I kinda me defined a player to follow. Fran for shila. He'll join us to the top of the hour. He'll give me his player to watch. As we kept down and get ready on the eve of the college basketball tournament more here. Hurt Morrison filling the retirement show.

In ohio. I'm Ed Donahue with an AP news minute. President Trump is now in Lima Ohio. Tank plant is nothing like it in the world. You make the finest equipment in the world. You really know what you're doing the president likes what he sees at a tank plant in Lima wanna get into them. But then I remember when a man named cockiest got into attack. And I remember he tanked when he got into the tank tanked episode, we tanked like that. So I said maybe a little bigger than him. I think earlier at the White House the president said that he believes special counsel Robert Muller's report should be released to the public even as he called its very existence ridiculous. The president is said let it come out. Let people see it. He told reporters at the White House. Let's see whether or not. It's legit Muller is expected to present a report to the Justice department any day now lining the findings of his Russia investigation. I'm donahue.

May 15th: Troy Coverdale and Weld County Commissioner Mike Freeman

"Okay welcome in to no co- Now I am. Tanner went. Thanks for joining us here on a wonderful afternoon excited to be with you in a very fun. Show plan for you here today. We'll talk with Troy. Cova News and sports stricter haven't been talking to him every single day. But I do want to an update as governor. Police had a press conference at one thirty this afternoon. We'll have troy give us the latest from the governor's office Some sad news coming out of UNC as well that we will get to talking with Troy. Get just get an update around what? The news cycle has been like over the past week here for Northern Colorado. Then we will talk with Weld County Commissioner Chairman Mike Freeman as we start to see county open. Backup as we start to see. Businesses started to open backup. WanNa get his thoughts on how he thinks? Things have gone so far and ways that he thinks that they could improve And I know one big question that look that I want to ask the commissioner and I will ask. The commissioners can restaurants open county and if so at what what degree and? We'll talk with commissioner about that as well and of course we'll get to the headline that caught my eye. There's a good one coming up in the later on in this program again. We want to hear from you. Text us in that feed mill text. Line three one nine nine six three one nine six or you can call us at nine seven zero three five three thirteen ten nine seven zero three five three thirteen ten and we'll get to all of those and much much more. Let's get right. Underway here with a story coming out of the Loveland reporter Herald Greeley based J. B. S. USA is donating to corona virus. Relief efforts again this coming out of their loved. One reporter Hell. J. B. S. and its sister company. Pilgrim's pride said in a statement Wednesday that they will donate two hundred million dollars for hunger relief and broader community development efforts in cities that have meat packing facilities. The two hundred dollar million or two hundred million dollar program is on top of one hundred million dollars that J. Pilgrim's pride have said they already spent in worker safety measures and fifty million dollars in bonus in bonuses to facility workers as well so I know that there's been a lot of questions about the operation that. Gps is running and the way that they are handling things and right now trying to step up and make that big move though. I mean two hundred million dollars just a insane amount of money Going to these different facilities in different areas that have facilities in them and It's it's just huge. It's it's such a big donations. So J B s Doing what they can to provide for those areas that have been impacted in the they're they're operating in That's a large sum of money so Kudos to S. for that Another headline that I wanted to get to here. Colorado is running out of money to pay out. Unemployment claims. Colorado is is like we just said running out of that money. State Labor officials said yesterday they expect the trust fund us for jobless benefits to run dry in late. June or early July. That's not that far away so far. More than four hundred fifty thousand people in the state have filed for unemployment since the pandemic started wants the state money runs out. Colorado can borrow from the feds to pay benefits. That deal is in place through twenty twenty that of coming from thirteen ten. Kfi DOT COM. I look one of the things that one of the topics of discussion that I wanna just mention briefly that as I talked to some of these local business owners restaurants or elsewhere That they're worried and studies have shown that they may not have the money to back off of unemployment. There are people that are making more money off of unemployment than they would be able to than than employers would be paid out to some of these employees. So that's something that we're going to have to watch out for as we transition off of this and as we transition out of the Cova nineteen pandemic days is. When will we see that turn back? And when will we see the unemployment unemployment rate and obviously we're starting to see the number of people filing for unemployment slow down but we talking about the amount of money that we can pay out for unemployment. When does that start to dry up? When did we start? Say Okay. It is time we're GONNA have to. We're GONNA have to figure something out. So that's a possible scenario. We'll continue to dive into studies that produce an talk about that same result along the way and continue to talk about these unemployment claims and how they're going to impact business not just right now but in the long term as well again here on Noko. Now I'm tanner swint. We're talking Cova. Nineteen at the moment and this was something that I found very very interesting. Barstool sports is a popular media outlet and they dive into much more than sports but their president their CEO the founder Dave Portnoy Coming out with a very Interesting take on what things are working and how things are working right now with the Cova Nineteen Pandemic. You know you you. I heard a lot of officials saying we have to flatten the curve. Flattening the curve platinum curve. Latin mccur. What flattened the curve means and your graphs and there's graphs all over the place. Saying we have to flatten this to flatten this. We have to fly in this well. It's really transition to. We have to find the cure and he wrote he. He raised some valid points throughout. And I just want to throw this out there. It was it was Tremendously wild popular tweet. That went out from Dave Portnoy of Barstool and his his whole entire point was just that it was they think he referenced that we were on a six hour flight and they kept saying yet six hours six hours six hours will land and six hours and then five and a half hours in here like we've got four hours to go and I think that was a pretty good analogy used by by Dave Portnoy N. look Portnoy's definitely been controversial. He's been the way that he handles things. The ethics Four Barstool Has Been called into question many a time but he just raised the question winded flattening the curve turn into finding the cure two hundred and fifty five thousand likes on this on twitter so this is something that kind of took off and I thought it was worth spending some time on because he raises a valid point now. I I don't have any answers. I don't offer any answers I just offered this. When did that transition happen? And really when it started happening is when we started to open things back up and for the most part we haven't seen a spike. We have not seen this tremendous spike. Backup we haven't seen any of the the horror story numbers that we've seen now. Look there are terrible. Tragedies that are coming from this. There's no doubt about this but speaking with business owners that have been putting everything that they have Everything that they own everything into a specific business. We're talking to three decades or heck. Maybe it's somebody that's just started to chase their dreams and they say look. What kind of life is it that I wanNA live? If I have to start from scratch again what does that mean? A new restaurant owner just opens up and get underway. Just finally starting to make the turn starting to things are starting to look upward for them. Then all of a sudden they're forced to close in stay closed will do. They want to go back to being a chef. I mean these are stories that we have to talk about the mental health of these people along the way here not just in northern Colorado but across the nation. And it's it's a legitimate concern. It's a legitimate concern. That some people when we come back out on the other side of this and they just wash what they just worked for get collapsed because they weren't allowed to open from the state or whatever government agencies are saying who can't open that's a that's a tragedy that is a tragedy. No we're talking lives. But we've proven right now. The whole time was to make sure we had enough hospital beds. That's been proven if you want more proof going go and rewatch the the conversation from Coffee with the chamber. Margaret Carson from NC MC the executive director over at UC health. They've got beds. They've got space. So when did this transition happen and why he know the white part? I don't know if we can. We can blame either side. I mean more than I'm more than happy to point fingers at both sides saying this. All of a sudden became a politicized agenda and to me when that started to happen when it started to get political with it and push their agendas a new returned and we had turned the tide just a little bit because we saw humans had this innate ability. It's this instinct jewel reaction to come together when we need to and he saw that when the first at home orders wanted to place. It wasn't a problem. You didn't see protests. You didn't see we understood for the for the betterment of people. We had to stay home when things start to become this politicized battle. You have to start to wonder. When did this happen? And for what reasons did this happen? And I think those are all fair questions and aid questions it will. We will see play out. We will see the answers to eventually but right now it's a fair question asked because you look at it and and I'm not. I need to be very blatantly clear. I'm not about to compare this to the cold or the flu but there's viruses that we don't have cures for viruses that are worse for some people than other people that we don't have cures for but we don't we don't quarantine and I know this is a b. This is a new special beast. Because just how contagious it is. Don't get me wrong. I think that this is a severe. This is a severe virus for some people but now we are locking things up until we find a cure. That's a year eighteen months down. The road can't do that. That will outweigh the the the disasters. The tragedies of that will outweigh the tragedies that we see from this virus so winded flattening the curve. Turn into find the cure. I'm not sure but this is why we have. The show is to talk to some of the people who maybe have those answers and we'll continue to gather information gather news on the subject before we take a break here. I do want to talk about one of our great sponsors Jeanine insurance and Jane Crop Insurance offering complete coverage for your farm and ranch weather. It's your crops or your property. It's Jeanine insurance and J nine crop insurance. Get a hold of Joe. Janine Freeman at Crans. Nine seven zero eight three four eleven sixty I know. There's some hailstorm starting the pop up. Maybe you want to get those crops protected Jeanine Crop Insurance and for Terry Garage Insurance. Maybe just got questions about policies. Maybe he can find it cheaper policy with better coverage for. You never know a can't hurt to ask. All you have to do is call nine seven zero eight three four two thousand nine telling me heard about them right here on no now. Let's take a break when we come back on its side. We'll talk with Troy Coverdale News in sports director and We'll dive into some of the biggest news stories around northern Colorado. All that and much much more when we come back on the other side. It's no co now right here. Thirteen ten KFI BEST UNC. Bears targeting game coverage lives on thirteen ten. Kfi K Welcome back into no Cornell KANTER SWINT. Thanks for joining us. Brian Kelly doing the production work back behind that bulletproof glass happy with you with another addition here and let's get joined by a guy that we've talked with a lot over the last couple of weeks and I think just kind of been missing. The sound of his voice troy coverdale the news and sports director here at Cave K. Joining me troy appreciate you taking some time on this Friday afternoon no problem. I don't know that you really are missing. But you know well. Hey you know come on now come on. I got to roll with it. Troy Lot to get to of course and there's seems to be more and more news command. Let's start first with Governor Polish and his presser today at one thirty I would imagine the La the hot topic Issue was of course meeting with President Trump on Wednesday. You know what actually that was. A that was a low item on the totem pole of this afternoon for the discussion. Because of a couple of other stories that have broken out. The first was reported by nine news last night. You have a representative from Douglas County. Who is calling for George Brock Ler the DA in that judicial district to look into the reporting of deaths from Corona virus from Cova Nineteen and the allegation that the Department of Public Health and environment is falsifying death certificates and so this representative is asking for a look into it and potential criminal charges police a address that this afternoon stating that's out of line George Brookler also addressing that this afternoon that now is not the time to get into investigations along those lines. The other is a story that is going to have everybody's attention for a while a murder over the weekend that occurred in Denver and the suspect happens to be one of those who was released before his sentence was do what he was scheduled to be out in August They gave him early release. Because of Corona virus running rampant throughout jails and they have him now back in jail after allegedly committing murder. And so those were the two stories that wound up actually having pulled. Us attention this afternoon. Well and Hey Catch me surprised because I figured that was still going to be the topic of discussion. Let's dive a little bit more into that Troy. You talk about the releasing of of inmates because of covert nineteen of that. I mean you talk about a controversial topic. There's one that could be spent hours on. But again he was looking at potential release already in August and that is one of the things that when you get into the discussion about this. You're not talking about someone who was wanted or was serving a murder sentence at the time or rape sentence or something that is it hands officer right right. Yeah and so and so the expectation that you would be dealing with this person back in jail on a murder charge you would think that the percentages would be small but unfortunately it didn't play out that way and This may be the the the first case while we know it's the first case in the state it may be one of the first few cases nationally of what of this happening Because for the most part most of those that were released were on very low level issues specifically drug related issues. Come to mind and heck in Colorado in if it's a if it's a pot conviction Nitin for crying out loud it ought to be off there off of their sentence anyway but that's another argument for another time. The the fact of the matter is is that a lot of people will seize on this unfortunately and it's not going to help political discussion going forward right. Talk with Troy. Coverdale News and sport stricter here it gave and I want to get your thoughts. I went over the story yesterday. But from everything that I've gathered the conversation between Governor Polos and president trump seemed to have gone pretty positively The seems like there was some good Discourse between the two and you know Governor pulses one of the few democratic governors. That has really thrown a whole lot of Barbs bad commentary about the president his way. So does it surprise you that it went surprisingly well. Well you have to also remember that That us is a guy who has a bit of a Libertarian. Streak in him and so From a business standpoint you know while they both made their money different ways. There's at least that understanding as well between the two of them having been businessmen before getting into the political side of things and so I think that that may have helped some of their understanding as well All told the meeting itself went about a half an hour. Pull us a noted that he spent actually more time talking with Dr. Deborah burks a related to Cdc related stuff in the end. The task force's stuff Then he actually did in speaking with the president that day in DC. But you're right He. He's not been one who has taken the opportunities very often. He took that one Sunday to to voice his opinion on where things were with the president and since that point he has not been very critical. I think part of that though stems from police in this moment is keeping his mind where it needs to be from his viewpoint and that is being sure to be focused on the task at hand and that is the recovery from this and overcoming what it is done to not just the state overall but the economy and more writing and really. I mean there's no doubt about it here The Weld County Commissioners. Some of the. You Weld County leaders have had their issues with Governor Polish. But really he's the only blue worthy only blue state that has started to open back up We were ahead of some of these other states and just a little bit longer of a process so Those are those are things that do want to throw out there. As this becomes more politicized it seems like people are trying to take stands on both sides but Governor polls really he eats pretty far. Been down the middle so far and how he's been handling this and I think all you have to do in in taking a look at a situation is recognizing that he said that the state would open point and it did granted not as fast as some would like it to be or as full as people would like it to be but this is a process and one of the things you've brought up in the in the last segment that we haven't seen surges. Unfortunately we are starting to see some surges in places where they did take that pace a little faster Texas. The last three days has had more cases than they had had throughout the entirety of this matter over a thousand new cases reported each day in Texas. And so that's a bit worrisome. Going forward and it points again to why the discussion has been about trying to take this process. Slow and and push to just being able to to move along at various tempos to try and overcome this and maybe not have it be such a severe situation coming off of it as it wound up being severe going into the situation right and by by surges. Try meant to the to the extent of things getting overwhelmed. We know we're going to see that uptick again right. We that that's relatively certain that we're GONNA see that. As more tests become available on his more activities started take place But to that point yes You know and the other point that you you talk to you. If you want to talk about how it's been down the middle you talk about California closing things until August. You talk about what Michigan are Pennsylvania's doing as well and so you look at Colorado. It's been kinda right down the middle with how things have been a handled and how things have been really looked at Not Not just from the governor but from everybody involved no and you're you're absolutely right and and I think a big part of that is the the recognition that to be able to do this as a little politicized as possible. The governor recognized that it had to be a bipartisan effort. And I think for the most part it has. There have been extremes on both sides that want different things done and they haven't panned out that way but in the grand scheme of things he's he's been pretty middle of the road with it and I I think that everyone. I think that most people can recognize that to talk with Troy. Coverdale our news and sports stricter here at Kfi Troy. Before I let you go do want to talk about some somber news coming out of the University of Northern Colorado. Young assistant coach hired. Just in February. Two Ed McCaffrey. Football staff passed away overnight at the age of twenty six and just an utter. Shame that that we won't get an opportunity to better know. Zach Hof power. Who had played at Stamford with Christian McCaffrey? And had that was where the McCaffrey family had gotten to know him. And I know that Ed was very pleased to have him on the staff and was looking forward to having him work with the safeties this season and and be able to guide a young coach again in his first real coaching opportunity. He passed away overnight and we do not know the reasons yet as to why that panned out that way but condolences. Go to everyone involved as it was one of those things that this morning is kind of a slap to the face a reminder of the reality of everyday life again in and unfortunately it comes at a at a very tough time as it pertains to UNC as a whole but in the athletic department as a whole because things are are so at this point shelved and it is an unusual situation to be in. But I know that Aaron Ralph had spent a little time watching practices before everything shut down and and he was speaking very highly what he was seeing out of. Zack as a coach and really liked the attitude that the young man brought in so it. It's disappointing Absolutely and and you know the to be able to that as a team when everybody's gone has got to be a tough situation to. If you're Ed McCaffrey and it just adds one more thing to what has been a very challenging time in developing a football program. No DOUBT ABOUT IT TROY. Thanks for letting US know and again our hearts and our prayers go out to the family involved and again appreciate your insight on that and appreciate your insight on everything involved. Troy. We'll talk with you next week. Have a great weekend and we'll talk with you then. Sounds good thanks. That's Troy Coverdale News and sports director here at KFI and Christian. Mccaffrey tweeting out to yesterday. Having gained an angel and I lost one of my best friends in the world. He went on to give a dedication to To the coach as well so Prayers everybody involved in that difficult situation and and again I think troy Spoke on that pretty well all right. Let's shift gears here. Let's get back into the swing of things let's Take this break when we come back on the other side. We Will Talk. With a Weld County Commissioner Chairman Mike Freeman but first. Let's get the bottom of the hour. News and weather center. Why Sports Story Northern Colorado state in the country tune into the whole show weekdays noon to two and thirteen ten KFI K? Come back into the program here on a Friday afternoon. Tanner swint right Kelly. The production work as always want to hear from you. Call us on the feed mill hotline nine seven zero three five three thirteen ten nine seven zero three five three thirteen ten or Texan that that Kfi Tech signed three one nine nine six three one nine nine six great conversation there with Troy Coverdale excited about this next guest as well. It's been a minute since we've got a chance to talk with them but joining us now. How Well County Commissioner Chairman Mike Freeman Up Online a commissioner? I know it's been a while but I'm sure you you've been busy as always been pretty busy today doing well. Thanks for joining me. What you've been up to commissioner. Yeah well you know We're just continuing to. We're just continuing to run the county. We opened our lobby here week or a week ago and as we start getting opening up we've Gone back to having means in public actually getting back to doing some land use cases. I think we had forum on Wednesday. So we're actually trying to get back to somewhat Business as usual but but business more as usual I guess absolutely and has this been has this week now after a week of digesting everything and had seen how they're going to feel like a little bit of a rhythm was hit from what not just from what you guys are doing but from what you're hearing across the county. Yeah I think so I think people are starting to You know slowly open open businesses and slowly get back to work. It's going to be a you know it's going to be going to be like flipping a light switch but we're slowly getting things back going and I think that's a good thing. As as we continue to move forward I think we'll continue to see more and more businesses able to open Hopefully most of them will come back. I mean we're still hearing numbers that somewhere between maybe thirty and maybe even forty percent of businesses that were close will never reopen which is which is really sad to hear but you know hopefully those numbers on quite as bad as as what we're hearing and and be able to get their businesses back open. Commissioner you're talking about these different businesses Reopening and I'd be remiss if I didn't ask I've been asked this question. I'M NOT SURE. How many times can restaurants in Weld County Open? Well you know I as I said from the very beginning. Welcomed didn't close businesses. We're not opening any businesses What we're doing in Weld County is the business. Owners are making decisions for themselves. County Health Department. We'll be Doing what they've always done. And that is as businesses do open a restaurant's open they'll be doing inspections for food safety procedures but We won't be enforcing We won't be enforcing the governor's unenforceable orders. If the state wants to enforce those orders their order they can enforce it. Well in with that of one of the questions that I've had is. Has there been any examples of I know. The governor made some pretty big threats early on and it seems like to me through my research and through hearing through different things that Dora is actually ruling on the side of the local government. Is that the kind of the thing that you've been hearing as well. Yeah that's pretty much what I've been hearing you know I don't know how many I know. There's a number of restaurants Actually probably more than we know that are opening well county. I don't really know for sure but You know I think that As long as as long as as long as they're following the The other things which is the deal and physical distance in things out. I think they're they're probably operating just to safe as if you're in King Super Walmart or anywhere else where. There's many more people than than are going to be in a restaurant. Appreciate that commissioner. Haddad's I've been asking that question as well so I had to ask you that as well and one of the things that I want to talk about as we continue our conversation with commission chairman. Mike Freeman masks. This is something that I know that there are even people inside here at. Kfi are confused about okay when I'm in Larimer County. I've gotTa wear one here when you go into a business here in northern Weld County. Is it the right of the business owner? Is it the right of the individual who's going into that business well if obviously if it's the right of the business I mean it's an individual business owners? If they want to require that their employees were mass. They certainly can do that if they want to. Require that They're not going to allow anybody into their business without wearing a mask. The business owner has the right to do that. Well I appreciate you clean that as you know. This has been confusing times for everybody and it seems like there's been there's just people starting to get out more a little bit more often and excitement about it so just wanted to clear some of that up. Commissioner you talked about some things starting to get back a little bit more business as usual. You continue to see these steps being taken. Where hopefully but sooner rather than later we will be back to our normal. Well I know when I don't know when we get back to the normal that we saw you know say January I I think that will continue to get closer and closer to normal. You know I guess I guess I'm the ultimate optimist when it comes. I don't really WanNa talk about a new normal. I talk about normal but I do think that That things are probably going to be changing for. Probably maybe forever going forward. I think you're probably going to see as we've gone through this. More and more businesses realized that there are some things that they can actually tell work with and maybe that makes more sense than in some situations and so. I think you're I need. You're going to see some of that going forward as well with more people have the ability to work at home. If that's a choice that their employer and the employee wants to make I know that You know some employees really like kind of working from home and some absolutely hate it because they you know they're maybe they're not maybe as motivated and it's really hard to to maybe from your kitchen table be as productive as when you're actually in an office so I I think I think all of those things are things are gonNA get sorted out as we go forward and and and see how how different businesses operate you know in the future. Well in one of those things that in speaking with you leading up to it and then commissioner at large Kevin Ross as well the virtual town hall or the phone townhall seemed to have been a great success. Is that something you guys are considering doing more of in the future think we probably will? When we did the survey at the end that deal I think ninety six percent of the people who responded to poll said? They liked it and would like us to do it again. So Yeah. I think that it's something that we would certainly look at going forward. And it doesn't even have to be in a time of the disaster or pandemic or whatever we're in I think it's something that would make sense from time to time to actually do that. And be able to actually get Information after the citizens of Weld County so I think it was very successful completely. Agree with you as we continue talking here with Commissioner Chair in Weld County Commissioner Chairman Mike Freeman and and Commission One of those big industries. We've talked about it and I think it's worth getting back to a little bit. Here is the oil industry. We're starting to see things creep back up in that right direction. Do you see as as with everything. It's going to have a big impact. How do you see the oil industry in Weld County recovering from this? You Know I. I think they'll industry will recover. I mean they You know The oil industry we've seen the ups and downs in the oil and gas industry. I don't know how many times we saw a downturn in two thousand fifteen we certainly saw downturn in two thousand eight I think that You know it's going to take some time partly because because of where we're at still as with with the demand down where it is but as we continue to see businesses opening we see demand increase and I think what you will see the oil and gas industry come back. I know the the prices come back a little bit. There's some predictions for you know getting back. Maybe into the forty or fifty dollar range by the end of the year and so Yeah I believe the oil and gas industry will be back. They've got they've got way too much infrastructure and two minutes money invested in Weld county to not come back when when the price is right. Well Commissioner one of the things that I one of the questions that I've had for quite a while is that this is unprecedented times. I know that's such a cliche word point But how have this group of commissioners come together and work through this? You know the not even mentioned that it is an election year. And there's so much other factors going on. But how how? How is this? Commissioner Group worked together you know.

Kfi Math thanks before thirteen ten KFI preps radio is northern. Colorado's home for the past high school coverage. It's been a relatively positive week here. Things starting to turn around. You know when I'm talking when I'm talking less less cove. Nineteen the better right. That's what we're all hoping for. Is that sometime soon? This will be a distant memory. And we'll be able to gather at our bars and breweries in a restaurants and raise a glass to know more Cova Nineteen and. I'm sure that they will be here before. Too Long We've got a double dose of headlines Comma so Let's start with this first one. Just coming in here in this Ryan our producer rank. Elia pushing me. This story here long struggling. Jc Penney filing for bankruptcy so of course JC penney just a nationwide chain is now bankrupt as corona virus. Crushes hopes for a quick turnaround. Jc Penney weighed down by debt and battered by the Krona. Virus has filed for bankruptcy this. Just twenty eight minutes ago according to CNBC They've been struggling for a while. We all kind of knew that this was kind of the final nail into the coffin for JC PENNEY JC. Penney again filing for bankruptcy So as we do here you know we don't want to end the week. We don't want to end the show on bed. No right we want to end on a positive note and here is the headline that caught my eye. Anonymous donors pay off millions in students head before her for four hundred low income college graduates. This is something that has been at the forefront of a lot of conversations when talking about Cova nineteen. Are these college graduates here in the year. Two Thousand Twenty more than four hundred college grads were left overwhelmed. California College grads. I might add We're left overwhelmed with joy and surprise earlier this week after they were told that anonymous donors had paid off their student debt the unidentified benefactors pay off the debt by donating more than eight million dollars to students rising above a San Francisco based nonprofit organization that helps send low income first generation college students through college and provide them with personal guidance mentoring internships and career guidance despite how one hundred percent of students are from low to moderate incomes and sixty two percent are living below the federal poverty line however the average Grad finishes school with eight thousand dollars in debt Quote here with student. Loans increasingly becoming a financial burden as are a is grateful for the opportunity to facilitate relief to our hardworking alumni. Who have Become highly productive members of the workforce nationwide said as are a CEO Elizabeth Davonte. Who informed the grads of their relieved debts in a zoom call? This week that had to be the happiest zoom call anyone's ever been a part of I mean four hundred students just debt free from what The work that they put in I think that heck if I could trade walking at college graduation for for Debt Free I think I would. I would make that trade Kimberly Armstrong road. Three hundred thousand dollars in law. School debts is just one of the. Sra students who has now been freed from the financial burden? Thanks to the generous donation She told KPI it's shock. It's amazing it's a relief though literally. It's a weight lifted so another good deed done by some anonymous donors paying off a millions and student debt for four hundred low income college graduates in Colorado. Well done my friends.

What's new last night? watched episodes one and two of the last dance. Did you watch live? I was asking all my friends. This was this something you have to tune in right at six Pacific nine eastern to be involved in the online chatter. Did you watch live? Christopher is this the first time we've met? No one was back in the day before just before Chris Became a sensible responsible human being a father. Father Father of children can't father of child masculine child. He started a named Cage. Bom Strong before you found Sarah Tana. Da Lovely lovely wonderful woman on Planet Earth Mother of Your Child Gauge and did Christopher. You spent Sunday nights in my home on occasion often watching Sunday night football often. Suzy Shuster my wife would make sure that you were taking care of yes. Food drink all of the above on occasion. You might have met a nanny or two in my house. I don't know what you're talk. I just went there. I don't know what you're saying do you think do you think at six o'clock Pacific Time? Yesterday I was able to settle in front of that television. I asked all day. I plan to do this all to do you think I was able at nine eastern six o'clock Pacific Time to settle into a chair. Drink in hand and watch the latter dance on time. Do you think I was able to do that? Chris I zero point zero care to answer the question that that to me yourself. Christopher no I don't I I didn't either I didn't either. I was just wondering just wondering it seemed like 'cause I had to game of thrones feel to it where you needed to watch it as it was happening. It had the feel of a sporting event the contrary getting around a television set to take in a sporting event to gather as we are going to do for the NFL draft. On Thursday night. It had been. When was the last time the country did that? Even even I mean you could say. I'd like to say the combine on NFL network but but that is still such a hard core event for so many people to grab. Was it the Super Bowl? I'm serious where we were all washing event together where people who aren't so hard core sports fans or they heard about it and want to see what it's about superbowl. I tried to get my kids to sit down and watch. I tried to get my kids to sit down and watch the documentary. But they were too busy on this. Infernal game roadblocks on their ipads okay and And then they eventually came in and wanted to see and Susana were. We watched it together around forty minutes and it wasn't too bad. Yeah that's about around here when we were able to settle down together and you know. She grabs a drink. I grabbed a drink. We sit down. We watch it and and I was lamenting. I want my kids to know. I said to Zander my oldest eleven on Mike. I want you to know who Michael Jordan isn't. He looks at me over his glasses. Dad because he's beginning to start thinking a little bit of a he looks over. His glasses goes dad. I know who Michael Jordan is. And I'm like you know what Michael Jordan is but do you know who he was. Fred okay. He's not just the guy who's shoes your you like to wear. And so I was lamenting that. My kids were not there until the Cocaine Circus was mentioned. Yeah and then. I heard that I was dying. It just as well Kevin Clark who's GonNa join us on Thursday's edition of the rich. Eisen show right around this time on draft day had a brilliant tweet. Did you see his tweet off during the show? I didn't want to be in truth. I think it's been like almost eighty thousand times are. That's how brilliant. It was talking about Jordan's rookie season when he was with Chicago and he knocks on a door during I guess preseason exhibition season. He's hearing people on the other side of the door and opens the sh be quiet and they opened the door and he sees what's going on in their head and he mentioned how the Bulls the called it. The cocaine circus Mike said lines on this side. We women over there now. I've roadblocks isn't so damn infernal you know Go ahead read. Kevin Clark's tweet from the ringer. Every member of the eighty four eighty five bulls watching and they're living in right now is explaining to their family that they weren't in the cocaine certain. Were not part of it. I don't know became the unfrozen Chicago terms your your term rails. Confuses Me Talk? I mean there were no locomotives ringling brothers. I don't know what you're talking about. Also the best part was. Mike said he didn't drink then. And then during the interviewing critically through three faint. That was a full fist at Tumbler. Next to hand had about a ten inch cigar or fingers dude is is. I saw God bless eighties things Goatman. Just sit back for my self deaf. I mean just take Bourbon whiskey or get one of those cigars. That's about a foot long and yeah and I'm going to sit here and I am in a slag on Jerry. Krause as long as I possibly can and this will we'll talk about the end of the top of the next hour as well when NBC an audience joins US Jordan. Said you know prior to this. That he wasn't gonNA come out looking like a rose he did. He was that people were going to kind of think. He's a terrible guy. Yeah based on. I would think on the way that he drove a lot of his teammates. Crazy or got on their case or was particularly mean spirited in getting on their case or was particularly tough to get along with his teammate. Because he doesn't suffer fools and this is why so many hall of fame. Athletes aren't coaches is why Phil Jackson's coach Phil. Jackson was not a hall of fame. New York knickerbocker. He was an important part of the Red Holzman championship years. But you don't see hall of fame players becoming coaches because they don't suffer fools gladly coaches. Don't obviously but hall of fame players not your saint player for a reason you're talented. Yes but you have a fire that Burns within that is unrivaled not everybody has the same mindset as a hall of fame player in that might be the difference between being great and hall of fame great so Jordan. I was expecting to see practice sessions where he was particularly Difficult and we did see some of it and for those who don't for whom this is the first time you're seeing this stuff. You might be sitting there saying Oh is just being like. Kobe was towards the end of his later. Tenure that we saw he was getting all over. Everybody will coby got that from yes Jordan. Sure did because he was emulating Jordan. And I'm sure Jordan was telling him stuff like this is the way I've got this mindset young squire and Kobe's I feel the same way and I'm going to do the same damn thing because I have multiple rings can fill up one hand with the rings that I have so I saw that last night and I'm like okay. I was expecting this but the guy who comes across the worst at least one fifth in is Jerry. Krause general manager of the of the Bulls. Who was the guy who did put the team around? Jordan didn't draft Jordan. It was rod thorn who many fans might recognize the deputy commissioner for all the years that David Stern seated the stage to him after he got booed like crazy in the first round of NBA drafts and Rod. Thorn would announce the next round but Rod. Thorn was the general manager of the Bulls who as they quickly walked through. Draft Night Chemo Lodge number. One overall can't can't argue with that. Certainly since they you know they they you need a big man allows. You is one of the best. That's ever played a hometown. Guy went to Houston Iraq and then the blazers. Well we already have drexler there. Yeah and let's get Sam Mbui. And as everyone point out nobody saw Jordan becoming Jordan but when Jordan fell to the Bulls third overall. I turn to Susie. As we're sitting there watching I said Jackpot Jackpot. That's one hundred ninety nine th overall for the Patriots Jackpot. That's what everybody's hoping for on Thursday night in the NFL Jackpot. You don't know right now. It's pulling out one armed bandit at the draft and it comes up maybe comes up. Jackpot. You won't know for year two or three or four from now but damn and you learn about Jordan fast. You learn about him fast Chicago. You knew he was something special. They said you know took like two practices to know. He was the best player on the team. Took all of two weeks to know that he was the best player in the NBA. Or TWO MONTHS YEAH. He said he found his stride in the third game. How about that Bob Knight soundbite that they pulled when he was before played in the Olympics? Bob Nights that he's the best basketball player. He's ever seen coach for Thomas. Oh come on his resume right. I mean wow call Jordan. The best basketball player he's ever seen in that was before. Michael Jordan played a minute as a professional basketball player. How about Rod Thorn pointing out that he? He was fortunate that the draft happened before the Olympics. Because if maybe it happened after the Olympics maybe Mike goes number one Houston or Portland. Definitely takes him at number two. I thought that was interesting. But Jerry Krause comes across as a guy who You know is is the heavy here. You know figuratively and literally how they would make fun of his weight. Make Fun of his height and a guy who it appears could not get over despite despite building the team around Jordan that Jordan needed to have and I'm curious as to the lineage of how Phil Jackson got hired that I'm sure is going to come because what we're about to see I think in the next two episodes is the bad boy. Era OF DETROIT. Who were I believe? If I'm not mistaken Chris they were the last impediment in Jordan's career with a bad boy. Detroit Pistons and no doubt that was it because after he vanquished the Detroit Pistons and the Jordan rules which was beat the crap out of them with whomever and also put Joe Dumars. Joe Dumars Pretty. Damn special of a basketball player. Who didn't get the credit because he wasn't Isaiah Thomas and he didn't beat you up like Lamm Beer and he didn't beat you up like Mahorn and the rest of those guys who I despised man. I hated aided the bad boy pistons. They were great. When I was in college they were a great villain for the NBA. My Gosh and what they did is they really. They you know and the rules that you see now that you can't you know you can only use your forearm on people. They had to reverse what they set in motion that Pat Riley then brought to the Knicks which was beat. Everybody up in Miami too but the bad boy pistons were the last impediment for Jordan and then we got past them. Look to the point where you know. I'm sitting there with suzy again. She's hearing my my monologue during this whole thing you know when they show They show Jordan winning national championship. Making the shot as a freshman. The final shot is a threat a freshman and Of course it was against Ewing's Georgetown Hoyas. I mean literally standing in Ewing's way every step of the way Michael Jordan and then Jordan went and played baseball. Charles Smith stepped in the way. Or something you know. I mean I not going to go down that worm hole but I just again Jordan was in the way of everybody up until up until you know. There was a period before Phil Jackson. But Jerry Krause put the team together and Jordan himself will point out you know. Hey I can only do so much like say dropped sixty three against the celtics. That was amazing. Still lost the game is still lost. The game like Mike said he's great friends with Charles Oakley even to this day he said that trade kind of helped us get over the Hump a little bit by getting a big man. Bill Cartwright bought but Krauss did not draft Jordan. He did not draft Michael Jordan. And I think that was the reason why he was so upset. Deep down throughout this entire tenure of all the championships of not getting the credit and never had the respect of Jordan and it seems like it was born out of the fact that Jordan had that minutes restriction placed on him when he was coming back from his injury in your two guy who will never let Echo Burnham once it's over burn him once it's over but I will say this and Bj Armstrong's coming up in our third and final hour of the show. And I I WANNA ask him. This Kraus was really only when it came to give pippen that contract and not renegotiating it and and all of that he was only doing what Jerry Reinsdorf wanted him to do and Reinsdorf in that beautiful suit look good can sit there and basically told pippen not to sign a contract but when you sign a contract. I don't hear from me again right. How's that Jerry Crisis Fall? He's only doing what Reinsdorf told him to do. Reinsdorf said at one point. Suzie turns to me and she's absolutely right. And I'm wondering if you all out there had the same fun when Jerry Krause says fills not come back as coach after this year wants to step in and say no what. I'm you know I think was the reason Phil came back in ninety eight at all. Well Poke Waikiki Jerry. Reinsdorf tell krause tell Tim Floyd to stay connected stay. Why can't to rebuild Gold Down with Phil? And why can't pip? And be part of the rebuild Jordan can still be on the back end of his career. Stay here Jordan's GonNa wear forty-five twenty-three for as long as he damn well pleases Pippen's GonNa stay here. Let's pay him. And let's figure out Jerry how to put everybody else around with Phil two in the same way that I guess craft stepped in and said we're going to trade Jimmy Garoppolo and we're sticking with Tom Brady in the same way that they couldn't figure out how to keep Brady this time. Why is cross to heavier completely and totally? There's still an owner of the team right. I can't wait to see how the next eight shows pan out on that front. 'cause it's bizarre. It was bizarre. Then I remember then it was really weird as it's now been reminded now held you not keep that team together. Could you imagine all of this taking place now? Oh my God. That was my thought. Imagine Bob Kraft after the Patriots. Beat the Falcons telling Bill Belichick. Hey Bill even if you go sixteen and Oh this year you're not coming back. That's essentially what happened. Well if Brady was still there. Yeah yeah it's crazy it's crazy I mean we'll we'll dive into that a little bit more The top of the next hour and then B J Armstrong will join us In the third hour of this program he wasn't in much of last night's Broadcast but We will see from him and hear from him later on in our third hour of the show up until then we're going to be very draft heavy. I'll be very honest with the. Nfl draft is coming up on Thursday. Night Jordan Palmer GonNa join US right before. Bj Armstrong e is the throwing coach of Joe. Borough do you know who else he has been throwing a lot or or had spent a lot of time with I imagined before corona virus at. Don't worry I will just billion on it Jordan love so Jordan Palmer Will be joining us on this program. Top of hour number three. Those are the quarterback class. We all know borrows go where he has. Where's to land? And then of course Jordan love out there too and how about the news that Joe Judge. Apparently facetime interviewed Justin. Herbert what's that all about? Come on giants. What the hell would joe judge be doing on the phone with Justin? Herber Mike Florio is going to be first up on the NBC. `send broadcast pro football pro. Football talk the He is on the show. Top of hour number two but right now turn phone lines and find a friend of the program and a friend in general And one of the best that bleach report puts out there for sure to give us all news and information. And there's a lot of talk about. Oh del Beckham potentially being on the move still that that rumor has been out there and it seems to be gaining a bit of steam and talk about that and the rest of the NFL draft. That's coming up front bleacher. Report Mike Freeman. How are you Michael? Very good my man I I I gotta say What you do with the draft and think jus I mean it's really amazing and I just WanNa make sure I got that. You haven't said that to yet it's Mike you do. And it's very appreciated and the What we'll Beckham ever be. He may never be training. But it's it's this stupid rumor that won't go away. Why why do you think why you think that rumor won't Go Away Mike? It's because some of it is because When I spoke to people about it and some of his because they don't think he's a perfect fit not all sets they think he's not They don't think Baker Mayfield's that accurate passer and that will tend to frustrate back on and that chemistry isn't quite there. You saw some of that. Some of the kids live with lacking last season. That's because they're so new together and that could really improve this year and they have a real head coach this year so all of that could really dramatically changed very quickly. But it's just it's this feeling and I think it's a wrong one wrong one Ritz. That Beckham can get along with anyone. I don't think that's necessarily true. I don't think he's that bad. A Guy Everything he's a hard worker. He's very talented. He does but he does this. Perception in the league that he is a troublemaker and can't get along with people and they think that's situation there is explosive potentially. I don't I'm not sure I don't know I just. I feel like he gets a little bit of a bad rap but I also think that there's some truth to it that he's not a perfect fit with that quarterback in that offense but this is this is a big year. We'll see this year. What happened Mike? Freeman and bleacher. Report here in the rich Eisen show. And you know what Yeah I I know. He screamed at Kicking Nets. Right and we all know right that he was part of the famed boat. Crew The days before a huge playoff game giants last playoff game that they played in Green Bay and then punched a hole in the wall. Etcetera so on and so forth but again. I've heard the same thing to Mike that that his teammates love them and that they get a big kick out of him and that when when he scores and he makes a big play that just there's few players in the NFL that come when they make a big play can lift the entire team so the question is what what what are you. Hearing is supposedly the bad mix between him and and Mayfield. It's not it's not that there's kind of personality class. It's just that Baker Mayfield have some problems with accuracy. And there's well he will be able to get better at that and just connect with tackle That's the big issue but hitting would you hit on. There's is dead on about his teammates in New York. A lot of the players really liked them in Cleveland. A lot of the players really like him. He's very well liked in that locker room and appreciated. And what do you when you talk to teammates about him? Is I've done repeatedly they'll tell you. I think they'll tell you. Hardy works and how supportive is of people around him And how the media sort of blows up some of this stuff but yeah this is this is going to be. I think constantly around because of Beckham's personality it is explosive and the belief that he's not a great fit there That will this. Season will determine where that goes where that goes. This year will determine that browse team could be really good. They got talent So it it could be. This season will determine where where and when Beckham where he goes how long he stays in Cleveland. If he stays for a long story short top I guess you could say that the the annual Video remember every team used to have like a video that would come out for the season. You know The browns going in is this Brown's team could be really good and then then the video coming out as the browns team could have been really good And then that's the issue So what do you think the odds are that this guy does get traded? It's got to happen. One would think in the next seventy two hours right. You've got to be able to take whatever you whatever you get in plug it right into a very deep draft certainly at the wide receiver position. Well I think the odds overall are pretty small I think the BROWNS WANNA give this a another season and see what happens when you have a really good offensive system. Give give those to back in the Mayfield more time together and then see. See how. That goes You just don't want to really just give up on a guy like that so quickly So I think the odds of small but when the browns say. There's no way we're doing like don't believe that teams always say that he's always say there's no way we're trading this guy and then they turn them so not necessarily with the browns say though. I tend to believe them. It's more just they don't WanNa they think this guy's really good and they wanna see what happens with one more season With them together and see how that goes. And if it's what I think it could be then he won't go anywhere for a while but if you see that lack of chemistry again It could be an issue enough to say this real quick rich one of the things that's happening now is we saw this a little bit twenty thirty years ago ten years ago little bit where teams were very hesitant to trade star receivers. They were just. They just happened to me. Randy Moss got traded. You saw some of that You saw Terrell Owens change teams but teams were still hesitant to do it because of the revolving passing game. How important receivers Warren? Now there's so many good receivers. They're not as afraid anymore. They're they're they're willing to get rid of Houston's a little bit of a different situation because that's situations crazy but still there you'll you'll see that they're still teams teams. That are saying I'm not as married to great receiver. I will take a chance with cheaper draft or free agency and it's been like that and it's changing The receiver still obviously shoes because the passing game is so big in the NFL. But they're not as afraid to make a move with some very talented as well. I think maybe that is because Wideouts maybe start to viewed as as running backs not in the fact that you know that once you're past the age of thirty you've outlived your usefulness You know although there are some we've seen Emmanuel Sanders make a nice signing even come back from a blown out. Achilles of at the age of thirty continuing to do what he's doing but we're seeing guys come out of college and just get things done and get them done fast and this. This year's group is really deep. Mike Freeman here on the rich. Eisen show running backs. We've seen what running backs can can be coming out of college and that makes running backs even in their second. Contracts Somewhat fungible replaceable. So what's the scoop with Leonard? Fournette here in Jacksonville Clearly I think that this is the the whole concept of him saying let's go get Cam. Publicly is just the tip of the iceberg for this team and net. What do you have for me on this Front Mica? That that that situation rich has always been a little bit tenuous because for that you point out a good example. Let's go get him That's not optimal for team. They don't want you say let's go get this guy when they decided we're going to go with another guy When that speaks his mind. And there's there's something bigger though. The Jaguars are rebuilding their completely restructuring. That team and We talked about the receivers. There's there's still a belief that the running backs are not a a key part of his game and not as much that you can just going back to what you said which is dead on how receivers can be used as running backs you can just throw quick pass out to them dump it off to them and they can be devastating for more devastating than some running backs. It's not in every case. Obviously there's great running back that that can do a lot Christian. Mccaffrey can do a lot. But the receivers are can can function in that role. The tight ends can a lot in that role so teams just still look at backs and I think that was this way and say we can find someone that we like more. Maybe cheaper that we don't that we believe in and we're cool with and we're going to focus on the receivers and the quarterback and backs replaceable. That's that's what's happening Jacksonville over the least sure I just think for some reason I don't know what it is. The Coughlin's gone now. But I just think that both both sides are kind of sick of each other. I don't know you kinda get that sense with son right. Yeah thousand percent and There's a there's a couple of players Jacksonville who have and and the team. They're sick of each other. There's other players on that roster and the thing about it is I. I'm a huge Jaguars. Guy I love that organization I like that owner a lot. I like the way it's run So I think they what they're doing is I. It's risky because basically starting over. But I like what they do. Overall as an organization. I love that city. I love that area And so they're just they're deciding this is. We're just going to move on from these guys who may not want to be here and we'll and we'll build our own franchise where we want to build it and if you don't want to be here if you talk to being here welcomed by you later and I think what they're headed thinking God as one of the obviously he's one of those guys you think he will be heading out. I mean because there. That's that's something that bears in mind before we see the draft. Play out this weekend right He. He is definitely one of guys at once. I mean he's basically he's basically said it So not basically so. I think he's yeah. You'RE GONNA see which I think there's there's a couple of these situations to really watch. He's one of them some situations in Jack with the Jaguars Maybe Beckham but I doubt it and a couple of other guys and a couple of situations where Do you could see trades and moves. It's always this way with the draft. But it's really sort of shaping up that way this year and and I would just really watch the Patriots. I always say this every year patriots. Always we always say they're gonNA make some kind of big move. I just had been speaking of people around the League who find it hard to believe the Patriots when I go into this year with those quarterback militants offense. They just find it hard to believe that. That's what they're gonNA do and they're not thinking like five years down the road. They think the Patriots GonNa make some Kinda big move quarterback so watch them and and the I can't find anyone who thinks the bengals are not GonNa get borough that no matter what they're offered they're sticking with him. They think he's the kind of guy that can energize entire city. So unless someone does like Mike ditka entire draft type deal. They're not moved. They're not budging either so there are a couple of things that are fixed. A couple of things really watch and like always as you know this draft something. We never planned on. Unexpected will definitely happen well. Let's let's dive in a little bit on the Patriot thing because it's so intriguing. Obviously because it involves the Patriots and Belichick and Brady and what happens in the next step and so on and so forth. You don't think has impressed in behind the scenes enough to have the Patriots. Just say we're all in with this kid. You don't think that's the case. Nobody believes it might be. It might be what I'm saying. People don't believe it. I mean I have tremendous respect bells. He's the best coach ever do it. That organization is to me just my opinion the best history of the League. You're GonNa see though what it looks. Life is like without Tom. Brady I mean he he you know you talk about a tide lifts all boats. I mean he was a phenomenon and he'd better that organization in every way he rely they relied so much on him. Obviously with the passing offense. Obviously the office but he impacted every corner of the Organization. One Guy and so what? I'm what I'm saying is teams are saying you're going to go from that to what you have now Anyone who follows brady would have a hard time but this is particularly really brutal transition and no one believes the Patriots are going to do this. They just don't believe it now. The Patriots and Bell Is. He's a very confident guy. He may say yeah. We're good with this. You may roll the dice and that that the odds are that's probably what will happen is no believes it. Because how does a guy go from Brady to to this and not really thinking more about adding more talented roster at that position and taking a chance with something moving up with some of his players and draft this year or really good so this is more a question of they? Don't believe it but don't take is that Kinda Guy. Belting is the guy who will say I like him. He's impressed us. We're GONNA roll the dice. It's just a no one really. Mike Freeman bleacher. Report here on the rich. Eisen show so you know we keep talking James and and for good reason because James. You got the guy threw for five thousand yards. And he's got a big arm and he seems to have turned his life around and has his head on straight and his Done and you've got Cam who is a former first overall pick who was entertaining an iconic in Carolina as. He said he would be But I don't know why I'm just keep sitting here so much mike and thinking once borough gets drafted. Dalton's gotTa go somewhere. And that's when Dalton is going to start coming into this mix and he might be the one that gets the GIG in Jacksonville. Obviously J. Gruden's there so on and so forth. I wonder what you think about that quarterback Carousel Going into the draft totally agree with you on all that I think Cam Newton Has Gotten one of the roles deals and that I've ever seen a guy who was physically just battered. His whole career organization walks away from him And there was this perception in part of it is because of the Times around now That it's hard to just get a real hardcore physical guys because it's just what we're facing but There's there's fear. His his health has his is his body breaking down. I think whoever gets them? We'll get a massive steel I don't feel as strongly about James Winston. I feel that way very strongly about. I think he's got another really strong. Really impressive chapter two right and whoever gets them whoever gets them is GONNA get a huge bargain But I think I agree with everything you said. I think teams are going to go with Andy Dalton I And we talked about some of these things that can happen in draft. This is one of those things will probably will see some type of deal in the draft so team that doesn't necessarily you mentioned the Jaguars. That's the possibility there are other teams who don't get drafted player. They want so they go for Dalton and then after that or guys like Cameron and after that has James to make. It's I agree with you. Cam I mean you. WanNa talk about a chip on his shoulder and his foot. I mean you know right. He's got the chip coming in and he's got he's still Cam Newton. You know what I mean I I. I know he's not going to plow people through you know on third and short anymore unless he unless he's he's back healthy and I know he does have such a Canon Armitage airmails people about. There's just something about I mean. He's still Cam Newton and he'll put fannies in the seats. I'm just interested. The CHARGERS HACK. Nab such a need for somebody like him. Maybe they're sitting back waiting if to it drops to them and then come out with to a than to a check the box of futures. Now come get your tickets. Everybody knows who is. He's a delight so on and so forth. Maybe that's what they're waiting for with the charges. What do you think well you did on? I think One of the big things with Cam. I think there's a lot. There's a half dozen teams. That are have him on their radar and are looking to see what happens in the draft and some of these dominoes will fall into drafts and some of them may not until that after but. I think he's one of the dominos that could fall because I do think I the way he's been at times portrayed and treat it as always wanted me but there are teams that no he still has a lot left and there are teams that look at him and valued him and think he's very very good still so it's just that some of them just aren't there are willing to make a move now because they want to really get a good look at him physically And also they want to wait and see what happens with quarterbacks in the draft but eventually those there's teams out there that are sort of waiting watching him monitoring him and they're gonNa make some moves maybe for younger plan draft but There there he has a lot of interest. There's a lot of teams that really respect him. Respect his game respect him as a guy respect his work ethic all of that so those teams out there. I just wish he had been. I mean look this happens to the NFL the big boy league. It's brutal at times way guys are treated as brutal at times. I just wish he was treated a little bit better more respectfully because he deserves it. He's earned it. He's been a really good player in this league a really good citizen in his league And there's still again resist a lot left there. He's still got some game last one for you. Mike Freeman Your best guest By the end of Thursday night Who's Got Herbert? Who's got to and WHO's got love by the end of the night and if you think there's a fifth one x maybe I think the dolphins still get to I think the Patriots Have Herbert and I don't I'm not I'm still not sure where that's third guy goes. I still like love to New Orleans. they have a guy that could be a future. Qb But Love is a perfect kind of Sean. Payton Guy So I think this is going to be a whole lot of shocks with the quarterbacks. I gotTa Tell You Herbert to the patriots as a shocker. How how you connect those dots. And how does he wind up there? I think he say you think he's the twenty three or check actually makes a move because he does have a ton last day picks and he does have A lot of late Friday Third Rounders but other than that. There's not much capital to get up to where he might need. Get the Herbert. Did the the odds of it are slim right? Yes but it goes back to what we were saying before I just the people I really respectively find it. Hard to believe that he's going to go into the league into the season with what he's guy and thinking. GonNa make this year. You make a big move so but the odds of that. He just may not have enough to do it. He may have no interest in doing it. Just kind of what people are saying. That's what they think that this is the year he finally makes really huge move. He probably won't. It's just not what he does in general but if he's GonNa do it. This is a year So so I say that sort of knowing. The odds of that are slim. But there's just I've been. I've been really talking to a lot of people last like five or six days pretty intensively and that's sort of one of the big standards I think the Patriots GonNa make some more for TV And but but odds are it's GonNa go pretty straightforward like who? You think was going to go where that's what will happen. I don't buy I don't buy. The dolphins are interested in to real. I didn't get for the headache. Pat All at all. I didn't go for that head. Fake at all. But you know the Joe. Judge Joe Judges Interviewing Herbert by Zoom. That one was that one was like what now on just left me the head scratch. What are the giants just putting it out there? Hey were sitting there at four. If you want. Herbert you might need to come to us. I mean what what was that about belt faked. I felt like Jim Kirk Star Trek doing likes to corporate might Managua Google. Okay Google Google. That felt fake. That felt like some kind of poker. Move that that's like three chess but no one's falling for not I mean sure the corporate might just for people to know I. It is It is just a total fake. It's easy right but the Kobe Shoe. Meru is to is to game the system to cheat to get what you want. So maybe that's that's that's who who's pulling Kobayashi. Meru and in in the draft reaffirming air cattleman is try. Gentleman is flying Kobe. Meru but it's coming out to see a fake chorba. My all right everybody. Google those things make sense. Mike live long and prosper man. Thanks for joining appreciate it.

So get in while they get good on the phone front eight four four zero four rich. I'm wondering let me just throw this out because I'm trying to recover from the Patriots Getting Herber. Well here's here's why I don't think this is gonNA happen. Okay because Bella check as you know thinks universally he is. He's not just he's not just in his cave in he he may not know. The Tiger King is okay. I understand that you may not know that. But he doesn't live under a rock and I'm wondering if he's sitting there thinking and I'm wondering if other coaches might be thinking that the season may not go off on that the way things look right now you can't you. Can't you know what he knows for sure but the season may not go off on time? It may be truncated. One thing for sure is that whoever's drafted is not going to be in the building for awhile all right that there's not going to be on the field. Ota's there's not going to be face to face schooling and that may be a reason why Bella check wouldn't go with a raw rookie in two thousand twenty that what you need for the rookie to be ready right now in the NFL. When you draft a rookie quarterback there's two things there's two paths. One is the bengals path or maybe not really the dolphins path or the chargers path. Because you can sit there and and and let them wait. You know you want to chill and you got fits magic thrown in windows. He has no business owner into your the chargers. You get hurt or two and you got Taylor sitting there. Let him go and you could sell your tickets by saying. Hey you know when we get to play football again come on out and see to see Herbert bengals zero. That's it. It's Joe Boroughs team. We know right. So you got the team that draft so high and they get the surefire prospect. There's no competition it's him or you get the team that takes some body and is able to sit them for a little bit because you got the veteran and the kid can push the veteran out if the veteran goes you know what two and five right but if you're a team like the Patriots and we're sitting there thinking well Bella checks not going into the season. Brian Overlook what he looked like. Instead of a through pick six against the jetzt he performed so badly that Brady was pulled in that blowout. Victory went back in right. And they signed Cody Kessler. Two days later and we didn't see you steady and was like What Paulie from from a godfather? You won't see him no more. You won't see him no more so you didn't see him anymore but a team that does have an opportunity for a rookie to start and they may need them. They may not they could be like the chargers and the dolphins drafted high hanging out. Let him get up to speed. And in their as your franchise guy eventually but in order for you to have a rookie. Go ahead and START FOR THE YEAR. You need that guy to get in a camp wing it around meet his teammates. Get some sort of report going and that's not. GonNa Happen Right now and I'm wondering ballot checks like Yeah I. I don't know if I'm going to trade all the way up to get this guy for what from we come back in twenty twenty one I again? I don't know if that has anything to play into it. I'm just this total supposition. Just throwing that out there. Chris why would you trade all it? They'd have to package together. Pretty much ninety eighth all the way down to move up from twenty three to the spot. Where Herbert might be available? Five six overall okay. So there's a report John Lynch we're GonNa talk to this week tomorrow. I just on the NBC. Essentially have two first round picks forty niners the teen and thirty one report that they're looking to move out because they have no picks in the second or third round okay. You think Herbert's their thirteen. I don't look at Lynch. Lynch is draft from three. That's except for hold on a second. That's three room a seemingly party Holland. That's eight six screen three phone. One of the more than six screens is a computer. Looks like is that a Leroy Neiman version of the catch on the wall. No way it's definitely looks like a libra right. That looks like it looks like Dwight Clark reaching for the ball is that a Leroy Neiman. Dwight Clark catch painting on a wall. That would be amazing. That is you didn't notice. The painting in the background is that Leroy neiman boyfriend's brother by the way by the way it looks like it there's no Leroy Neiman near zero guys compared to like get them in his like you've come home from college and your parents turned your room into storage exactly and they took everything off. All posters are off the walls gun. You're not coming back. You don't say more. This is where you're just stay a night or two. Yup that's not gonNA worry. That's that's a newman. That's a newman painting. That links room is amazing. Setting up your right Mike. There might be a screen officers. Seven seven seven top right. This is what I would have. I would say bottom right screen. That's that's why I said set seven screens on top. Like you said top right to the right of the Newman Painting Neiman name and that may be another one that might be Owen. Hold on a second speaker. I think on and say it's Lynch's on the on the show tomorrow. We'll ask him so it's take the computer. Take the system. Clearly that-that mouse if you will is to control all the other coaches clicker. Okay all right take fell. Y'All take the three phones. Take the screens. Take the cost of everything parole together that that painting might be double the cost. Oh that's an original ruling. Oh yeah by the way. That also might be a one of one. Wow Oh it's a power strip right there on the left and nothing's plug in where on the left. We on the left plugged into that commerce for the phone or a cellphone cellphone comes. Implants easy access. Well phone IPAD IPAD stuff like that by the way that looks like a that does look on the To the left looks like a corner of another laptop. I mean I'm not GONNA lie. This is a this is like a product placement. I mean that's amazing and there's no. He might have double digit screens. There's there's no paperwork. There's no nothing BASELGA. There's no parallel. There's no no there's no. Vino Vino now. John doesn't need the notebook when you have ten screens in your house by. Maybe we got to stop here. We gotta do this. Nbc Essay. Because you know this is some of my. This has been an unexpected bit of joy in my life is is comparing and contrasting everything. All my gosh of all the draft draft setups. I can't get enough please. Gentle magic take a photograph of what you got me by the way my Home Office. Right now is there's stuff everywhere the home. Cam Nice already. I guess we're ready. Yeah School of like Nice. I like the NFL football. That's top setup. That's what I'll be doing. The draft fon live on on a laptop and doing in that corner and my other corner is where the bristow got different. I've got different drop points in my office. I've got different sets. One corner of the desk is the is the draft a thon and the other corner of the desk is what is what they're shooting directly for. Nfl Network Okay. What's the rappaport news? Joe Doug with tells reporters connect with Jamal Adams after the draft contract talks. Well he wants to keep Jamal here for a long time guest. Who going to be able to talk to about that. I've been told Jamal Adams is our Second our guest of Co host on draft Thursday night dion. Him and him together on Combine. Sunday was amazing for the corners. But there you go. That's what I looked like right now. And that's what probably Kevin Hart looks like right now on. Dion looks like Sanders Claus. He's got he's got a whole letterman beard going on huge in gray and just really wanted. Us career pick sixes. Maybe caught in the beard like soup that that right now not at all. Great wait for Thursday cannot wait for thirty. That's what I'm telling you. It's going to be ago when everyone's like wire that. Why are they doing this? Why are they doing this? Y Z. Nfl doing it's why does it force them to do it? Because of two things one we all need it into the most adaptable organism in sports is an NFL team. Quarter to quarter. Snap the snap game to game week to week month to month year to year right. Take a look at the the setups. The general managers have John Lynch John Lynch was one nine is one of the first teams to not be able to go into their facilities so that was considered. I mean the niners at one of the teams that had a competitive disadvantage to the teams that were sitting in their war rooms. Somebody's able to sit in their war rooms because it wasn't a shelter in place in their home city or home state and now everybody's got to be sheltered in place the NFL's like look if one team gets to use their war rooms the other teams can't that's not fair everybody go home. Look at Lynch's Senate the Senate. He might have ten screen the phones by the way. This is our clubhouse leader right. So far I'm by the way the branding branding impressive presses easy clubhouse this is like tiger ninety-seven subtract when you're right it said. Dv Sport on the Monitor. That is for place that's to go back and watch it does for Prince there and not even Garoppolo. That's how clean that is. That's amazing impressive. Are you saying Garoppolo's on the trading block?

July 2nd: Election Recap Tanner chats with Gail Fallen and Weld County Commissioner Mike Freeman

"From. Specialist Studios? Host Tanner Choice. Thanks for joining us. What will be a busy busy day. I got a lot of things to Get to obviously the election happening on Tuesday eighth. Colorado did their job a lot of people getting out to vote looking like some records. You're going to be broken. for the amount of ballots turned in so well done exercising that right to vote and. Some surprising races that we'll dive into Gayle, fallon of mornings with Gail will join us in the second segment to kind of recap where we thought it was where we thought things were GonNa land, and then compare where it is. I know there are. A couple of questions will. There was one very tight race that will dive into. It was not quite close enough for a recall her a recount. Excuse me, so we'll dive into that get a bigger picture of what this means for November. Remember these just the primaries and it seemed like that this was a heated race for a couple of seats but as we all know you know especially. Some of the Weld County Commissioner seats those are those are going to go republicans, so this was the really big battle, and now we'll see come November. Now you're not gonNA. Hear any of the candidates say that, but really that's what we're talking about, so we'll dive into that with gale film also joining us, we'll be Mr. Mike Freeman, the Weld County Commissioner chairman as well as the Republican nominee for the World County Commissioner Seat for district one at coming in November, he defeated Kristie Melendez on Tuesday. Evening. We'll talk with Mike about about well. Well what's next and who's going to be joining him on that? Commission panel We've got that and then the headline that caught my eye. We've got some encouraging news, but first. Let's get into it. It is the and news around Northern Colorado beginning well yesterday you need a hunting or fishing license to hike in Colorado. State Wildlife Areas this coming from John Mayer out of the No. Hikers. Exploring caught does designated state wildlife areas will be required to have these license There are two reasons for this new policy. The management of State Wildlife Areas is funded through the purchase of hunting and fishing licenses for the purpose of conserving habitats and wildlife related recreation, so to generate money state law requires departure wildlife just separate its funding sources for both wildlife area and state parks which are funded by park passes. There other reason has to do with growing visitation numbers. This is a quote from. CW spokesman Travis Dunkin. We're seeing unprecedented use of our public spaces. Interstate wildlife areas that is affecting our wildlife in these areas. I don't WanNa. Say I'm discouraging hiking, but I'm encouraging folks to look up. What the intended use of that property is they do go on to a an example here in example is the Mount Evans State Wildlife area west of Evergreen every year when we opened the gate for that wildlife various start letting cars through. We see all the wildlife. Wildlife Disappeared Dunkin said they get driven off from so much traffic from so much human us. That's one example of the kinds of things that are happening around the state so I. If they do go on to say that look if they catch out there hiking, you don't have a hunting or fishing license the bad. They're going to educate you I would. This is a sweeping change. I mean this is big for a lot of people that that are going to go hiking so. If. You're caught out there. You don't hunting or fishing license. They will educate first and then start to implement fines, and such a little bit later on so remember if going hiking in Colorado state, wildlife areas gotTA. Have that hunting or fishing permit? love and firework stands. See Increase in sales this year I could've told you that without without reading I think everyone is buying more and more fireworks. At least what it seems like from the different neighborhoods, and all of the big booms that are happening across northern Colorado, but this coming from the Loveland, reporter Herald in the lot of on Eisenhower. Boulevard and North Denver Avenue across the foundation. Search Seve hail soul fireworks for Greeley based to Bradley Fireworks. This is his thirteenth year running the ten in the business has. has been going well this year. He said so far. It's been really good the busy stays are always July third and fourth. He said, and it remains to be seen how many people will arrive this year? But you're not the way too long to get the fireworks because they have a shortage of products this year. more and more firework shows have been canceled. The city's annual firework show in Loveland at Lake level and Liz starting to lead more people to go and take matters into their own hand. Go and just get the go. Get their own fireworks, so they don't have to miss out on the The Fun usually we would sell two hundred of those packs this week and I've got about six of them left. He said if they run out. He won't be able to get any more so I definitely recommend shopping early. He said, and so there's it's all over the place I mean you drive around for just a couple of minutes you see these firework stands. In just about every parking lot, then look the other thing is like people they I mean they are looking for a sense of entertainment. There's still things that are open a lot of the stuff that were normally doing whether. It's a concert on the fourth of July or the stampede or Cheyenne, frontier days, or whatever it is, that's not happening, so people are finding a way to amuse themselves and keep themselves entertained, and it seems to be that a lot of it is fireworks this year. There are some that go to benefit booster clubs and stuff like that, but one man who said that he'd never fires before came to the stand with his grandson, and bought four hundred dollars worth of fireworks on Tuesday Boyd said so customers have also said they're buying their own fireworks because they don't want to go to. The city's fireworks display at the ranch the city usually had a fireworks display at Lake Levin, like we talked about, but it did get cancelled as well. Keep in mind to the Greeley. Stampede will actually be there still going to. To hold their fireworks show they are discouraging people from coming to the park to watch it. They go so far up in the air. Just get on a good vantage point. You'll be able to see it, but they are letting. People know that they do not want people coming to the actual park to watch the fireworks that'll be taking place on a Friday or on Saturday on the fourth of July. Obviously one of the thing. I want to throw it out there as well the shoebox parade. We'll be happening for the Greeley stampede. That will be released on their facebook page at nine am on Saturday. Yours truly co hosted the event with with Haley. Frederickson the missile Rodeo Colorado. She did a great job with it as well, but if you WANNA, see me, make a fool out of myself more than I usually do. Check it out there. It's a really good I've seen some of these floats I. Think I've talked about it. A couple of times really really engine. You know creative and some good ingenuity coming for people on these folks there shoebox prayed and the shoebox and they're decorated all crazy. You can see like there's even like some seven eight year. Olds that submitted something on my I couldn't have done. Done that so very impressed it'll be good, it'll be fun to watch this as well. Nine o'clock on Saturday morning, the shoebox fourth of July parade from the Greeley Stampede Wanna get your thoughts all feed, mill, hotline, nine, seven, zero, three, five, three, thirteen, ten, nine, seven, zero, three, five, three, thirteen, ten, or you can text into that KFC text line at three, one, nine, nine, six, three, one, nine, nine sixty new textures.

This was something that I talked with. Kevin Lionel on on Tuesday. And the we had live sports back in Colorado right, and it is the Korn Ferry tour that is taking place over at TPC Berthod and it is some of the pictures that Kevin Lionel has been able to grab so far. He's following it along so obviously. Fans aren't allowed down there, but It's just been fantastic watching this story and following along with Kevin after day one there were seven players. Tied at the top of the list so seven atop the leaderboard after the first round, they played today. Obviously no nothing yet on the. scorecard nothing yet from Kevin up on the Colorado. Seven players all shot a minus five round of sixty seven on the nearly eight thousand yard, course on Wednesdays, the largest collection of first round leader since two thousand twelve on the Korn ferry tour. Korn Ferry. Tour. Golfing. The Korn Ferry tour isn't something you're used to. It used to be the web dot COM to her, so it's it's nuts, this is. Air Every time I see yardage on this course, it's just insane to me. They've got a seven hundred yard par five like that's just on like the long ones on normal courses like five twenty like ridiculously long and seven hundred yards on this. No, Sir, not me I! I'm no I just I. Don't even know what score I'd put up on that, but I would. Would like to go down there and play it, but so that is no co news before we take a break, let's say thanks to mark Larson State Farm Insurance Agency Man I know you talking about a guy that's ready and hoping that the UNC bears are going to be able to play. He is a UNC bear through and through. He is an avid supporter. Because he knows Greeley's been a part of it for so long and just a really really good guy, and that's what you're talking about with insurance you want them to. Have your best interest in mind. It doesn't matter of its life home or auto. Even though they've got those rollbacks going on right now, you WanNa make sure that you're getting out there I.

Nine, seven, zero, three, five, six, eight, thousand, seven, hundred, nine, seven, zero, three, five, six, eighty, seven, hundred. Let's take a quick break. We'll come back on the other side. Gayle Fallon for mornings with Gail will join us. Let's recap this election when we come back. It's no co now on thirteen ten Kfi am. Best UNC bears targeting game coverage lives on thirteen ten K. F. K. Four, nineteen the time here on no now hope everybody's having a great a Thursday. wanted to dive into this election a little bit more and through that well we bring in the expert, the one that follows it. Very closely the expert on that she's done it for a long time. She's great at it. That is mornings with gale and Gayle Fallon up on mill hotline. Gail thanks so much for joining me here. Well. Hey, there tagger I mean tanner played golf with you that seven hundred yard par five. I know from personal experience. You'd Eagle it. No, yeah. You haven't been on the program in a while, but you don't have to try and butter me up like that. Come on, come on Don. Good Golfer. Gill appreciate that and I'll tell you what. I was on the golf course on Tuesday evening. Actually when some of these election results started to roll in well, let's start first with what we both kind of thought was going to be a tight race, and that was for Weld County Commission race between Kevin Ross and Perry Buck. We spoke and thought that it could be close. Flip a coin. Maybe that's not how this turned out at all. Well, you know it's funny because I am rather a Awang, because you're well aware a trend watcher so I was watching a lot of things in this primary election as far as what will November look like voter, enthusiasm, voter turnout, but. To your point, it was a good night for most incumbents, most incumbents as long as they were running for the same seat Kevin. Ross was the exception, and that was a huge surprise for some not so much for others, because typically an incumbent and Kevin Ross did a great job stepping in filling that at large county. Commissioners see as a result of John, Conway's or early retirement announced in early January, Yeah Kevin Appointed by the Weld County Council to that commissioner at large seat, in February did a great job has great experience as the former mayor of eaten brought a lot of that skill set to that seat worked very closely with don warden, but I think what really surprised me. The outcome was was. We did think it was going to be pretty much. Up between Perry Bach and Kevin Ross, but what surprised me was the margin by which Perry one. Yeah, it did me as well and look I. I know he wasn't your usual incumbent in the sense of he didn't have a full term in there, but Gail. I thought that that the appointment of him over Perry back in January was going to carry a little bit more weight with voters. It didn't appear that way. Well, I think that goes to Harry's longevity long standing reputation as a politician, but not your typical politician Certainly you know in the State House, a woman of integrity and character. And a true to her word on numerous issues that she worked on, she also had a former. Weld County Commissioner Sean Conway's endorsement, but both of them have such a big part for Weld county that it was just a tough choice, but once again I think it went to her work in the legislature and adjust the fact that she is so well known throughout county. That was the tipping point. Yeah, I saw an interview with Kevin Ross the day after the election, and he handled it with grace, he handled it with poison, and and this is a guy that we're gonNA. See Back in these races. I would imagine relatively quickly. I certainly hope so because he brings a lot to the table with his experience, and I certainly hope that we haven't seen the last of Kevin. Ross something tells me I agree with the Tanner on that point we have not. We're talking with mornings with. Host Gayle Fallon talking about the primaries that took place on Tuesday obviously the other one commissioner Freeman will will be joining us actually here in just a couple of moments, but Three. Mike. Freeman had a very worthy opponent in Christie. Melendez that one was. Maybe even a little bit closer than what I think. People anticipated, but Mike still won that election. Haley any surprises there for you, gail now I don't think so I think you know once again. When you look at the makeup of the well bore county commissioners, and they're numerous accomplishments over the years certainly Mike. Freeman earned that right to run for a third. Third term, but once again we were talking about so much political talent in Weld County. When you look at for example Kevin Ross when you look at Christie Melendez and once again not to be repetitively redundant, but I can only hope that the former mayor of Windsor Christie Melendez that we see much more of her because she took on the post office and she won. Yeah No, it was interesting That was one that I. Think a lot of people had that feeling that commissioner. Freeman ahead had done enough that that he was going to get that third term, but I agree with you. We'll probably see Melinda is back in some of these races as well Gail. Let's jump. Where do we go go larimer county? I WanNa talk about Berber Kirk Myers raise. Well, you know overall I. I want to get back to that point that you had made earlier talking about You know right off the top of this afternoon talking about that A lot of people getting out there to vote. surmising that this probably going to be a record setter, you are absolutely correct. Sir, this as secretary of State Genyk. griswald deemed Tuesday's election turnout, the largest for a non presidential primary in Colorado history with more than one point, five seven million people casting ballots, representing forty five percent of ACTA voters, and that's a trend that you also saw in Larimer. County is more than one hundred eleven. Thousand people cast ballots in Larimer. Forty seven percent of actor, active registered voters and a while I don't have the full breakdown in weld. Seventy. One, thousand, four, hundred twenty nine ballots were casts handily beating the returns in both two thousand, sixteen and twenty eighteen, and that goes to voter enthusiasm, because one of my big questions tanner just being so immersed in just well, the sunshine ribbons and rainbows and lollipops it is. These days. I am the mistress facetious right forced. I couldn't help think that after all this nation has been through not to mention just all the uncertainty and the Topsy Turvy, nature of all the restrictions and guidelines as a result of covid nineteen I was thinking voter turnout might be down well. That was not the case and I can't help but think that's going to be a bellwether for November because people are not turned off if anything, they're fired up right well, and you look at it and it's kind of. To use a sports analogy, we were Kinda scrimmaging. The political parties are scrimmaging each other, Republican and Republicans running against each other. We haven't even a quote. Unquote taken out on the enemy at. Regardless of what political party you're on so that I mean I. Think you're right. This could be a massive election. Come November one that you know there's a lot of there's a lot of things up for grabs that could have some pretty significant play on the political standpoint of Colorado absolutely absolutely, but back to that district twenty-three seat. Barbara Kirk buyer handily beating, Rupert Parchment Let's see Barbara Kirk buyer, fifty five point three one percent, according to the latest Ballot data coming from compass well, county, clerk and recorder rivard parchment at forty four point six nine percent, no surprise there, because once again as we spoke of Perry back. Barbara Kirk Mayer has quite a distinguished and long history in a weld county politics, so the fact that she won that nomination, no surprise whatsoever well, then the other one, I think of note as we continue to recap some of the elections, and what happened Tuesday evening in the primaries well. We gotta talk about Former Governor John Hickenlooper and His grace I. In his race, he pretty handily beat the Andrew Romanoff now were shaping up for what could be well, just an epic showdown between Hickenlooper Gardner Come November. Yes senator! Gardner has long been. Kind of in the crosshairs at a number of political experts, talking heads, saying that his seat is among the most vulnerable seats as a you know a a freshman senator, but here's what's fascinating. John Hickenlooper well. Basically what would have done better in his campaign? To subscribe to that old adage, that less is more because unfortunately, his gaps got him into trouble, but he won by twenty points I. You know over Andrew Romanoff because he is running as a moderate oh, but don't be surprised if he were to be elected because he will take a hard left, but I was Kinda surprised that he won by such a handy margin because of all the gaffes but I guess it kind of goes to you know the pucks attorney Joe as I call them now, Joe Biden. I guess the gaffes. Don't make any difference anymore right well. I'll tell you what to Gail I mean that. It's name recognition, and in the amount of money that is going to get pockets. Yeah, the money that's going to get poured into this. I mean there was a lot already spent on these primaries. I saw report that they're talking. Upwards of a million dollars You know possibly more for this race between? Hickenlooper and Gardner Yeah and they'll probably only beginning started, but on the upside for Senator Gardner John Hickenlooper former governor. John Hickenlooper surely has given him Griss to four the political ad. Mil So these these ads are going to get really down and dirty. No, they are for sure and those debates are going to be fun to watch as well Gail. What were some of your big takeaways? Maybe that we haven't got to yet statewide nationwide I know you've been following along. Even even on the bigger picture set of things well, the bigger picture is I think something I already alluded to again. I was looking for overarching trends across the country. And in the state as well and I. Think one thing that we know for absolute sure is that voters are really riled up and they are going to show I think one thing that we need to watch in Colorado I know in Larimer County. The Democrat turned out was higher than the Republican turn out, but the wildcard here the unaffiliated voters who tend to vote Democrat. Yeah it's IT'S GONNA. Be Fascinating to watch and Yeah I. Mean when when you have all of these these people turn it out. It's it's going to be hard to predict Ogeil to and and I point back to even twenty sixteen. When president trump won the presidency. Every stat that was thrown out there every number was incorrect i. how much faith do you have in the polls in these numbers that were about to see come? November, from I mean are the are the local races going to be a little bit more accurate than the national races. How how much stock should people taking these polls? We're about to see. That is a very very good question because I've been following the pull it down a primarily on the national level, and I've been following it not with a green, but a pillar of salt, because I find myself going back in time to Twenty Sixteen Wendy Hillary. Clinton was the heir apparent to the presidency, and we are seeing something very similar. There can't figure out if people are just giving pollsters a run for their money. Are they active voters? Because the poll example determines the overall. Of the poll, whether it's worth worth a dime or not, and so you got to remember, too. We are four months out from the presidential election day in politics is like a year and a lot can change between now and then. Look looking forward to looking forward to getting it over for being real honest gayle. These election years twenty twenty was supposed to be an election year, and we knew it was going to be a long year because of that, but you throw in a little bit of covid nineteen, you throw in a little bit of protests on their and man. We've had a long one. Well. You haven't had any days. What are we gonNA talk about today, right? It's been sensory overload. It's kind of like drinking from a fire. No, it's more like drinking from Niagara Falls, yes again so much coming on, but one thing going on, but one thing tanner kind of interesting, if you ever heard of senility, being part of a presidential campaign and It's it seems like every day on the news. Just something new that I've never seen before or heard of so That's why you got to pay attention to those local media outlets radio. Oh, absolutely all day long sure that covid nineteen. That's another good point because we are seeing spikes in cases across the nation. We're seeing those who re opened Many of them Republican led states reopened a bit more broadly that others are now kind of retrenching and closing things down. We've seen a spike of course in cases in Colorado and tanner, you and I have talked about this endlessly the the importance of making the distinction between. Between the number of cases and a spike in hospitalization rates, which unfortunately the mainstream lane stream media fails to do because it doesn't fit. Their trump really screwed the pooch on this one narrative. Well, there's so many numbers that you can dive into and in. We dove into him I feel like maybe a little too too quick into this. Because it was just a such a small sample size now we can really see it, but you're right, Gail. That hospitalization number is still under five percent, which is really the target, and we're holding steady there, so when you talk about spikes and stuff. He talked about the actions of the governor on. Monday, or Tuesday I believe was when shutting down bars and nightclubs again, right? It felt a little preemptive It felt like maybe it was. It was a move that was okay. We could see this if the fourth of July weekend is as big, so let's take a step back. Really the the model that he has implementing. Colorado standing in a much better place than a lot of the other states around the nation, oh absolutely absolutely and the point that I think you. And I have both been making okay fine If we don't want to be shut down again because you know that card is not necessarily off the table, it's up to us to exercise commonsense and do the right things and take personal responsibility. Yes, there still is a pandemic, and we can argue about the constitutionality of all of the so-called air quotes, guidelines and restrictions had fascinating conversations morning by the way with wowed county attorney Bruce Barca. Who is not? Not playing the waiver game as so many other counties are in order to placate the Colorado Department of Public Health and environment and the state, but that aside it's up to us to make sure that the state stays open couldn't upset better. Gail anything else that we missed from from well from I guess from Kobe nineteen all the way to the election and everything in between there I think we covered a lot looking forward to that next round with you. Though yeah, for sure we'll, we'll continue to get you on and next time. You don't have to lie about my golf game to get on the program. Come on, you're welcome. Thanks so much tanner's certainly appreciate it. Thank you so much. That is Gayle. Fallon mornings with Gail. Appreciate her time on that program six to nine every morning. Gail will be back at it tomorrow and so look the turn out was something that I was GonNa dive into as well Larimer County, just ridiculous I mean forty seven percent of active registered voters that is so high for primary November is going to be nuts, so I hope everybody's geared up. GET READY FOR POLITICAL ADS because they're coming your way, and they're going to be coming in full force four Scher, but. Well, we got one round out of the way I'll tell you what let's take a break. When we come back on the other side, we will have one of the winners from Tuesday's election. Weld County Commissioner Chairman Mike Freeman, coming up next but first. Let's get to the bottom of the hour news and weather center thirteen ten KFI preps. Radio is northern Colorado's home for the past high school coverage. Math thanks before mass shooting. From. Specialist Studios. It is no co now. Brian Kelly the production work I am tanner swint. Let's dive right into it. Our next guest on the ult mill hotline is Commissioner Mike Freeman, commissioner congratulations, thank you tanner. Excited obviously, you've been a great friend of the program personal friend for for well for years now so really excited that you will be running again and be serving weld. County of course it's not a foregone conclusion. You do have race coming up, November correct, I. Do yeah, the general election in November so You know and we'll take that seriously as we do every election it's. It's a little ways off probably start getting. Start you know. Start worrying out a little bit further down the road. Because you know what's going on right now and we'll county right now willing. We spoke on commissioner. It's just it's so interesting this year it's an election year, then everything else. That's going on the world. It's been nuts. Was this election well? I guess for lack of a better term more stressful than ones in years past. Know absolutely was more stressful. For one thing obviously you couldn't. You couldn't run the. You couldn't run your campaign like normal years. You weren't able to go out and and actually go door to door and visit with people like we've done in the past, so you know we had these days a little bit different this time, and so any election as stressful I mean it always is I felt like I always felt like because infringing shape as time and come to County Commissioner I. Think I've done a pretty good job. Job As county commissioner, a heck of a lot of support out there and I think based on the results of the election, and that was proven once again. Take us through. What was like final hours right before those polls starting to hit, and the numbers started be I mean. How nervous are you sit and have a glass of whisky? Calm the nerves. What? What does that look like for you? You know it's really it's pretty nerve wracking, and as we were sitting there, looking at the numbers they The turnout was was really large this year for. In the other primaries you know the last two you know around around fifty five hundred total votes, probably in one and this time we were up around fourteen thousand votes in district one so you know that was very a little concerned about the huge turnout, and but as it turned out I guess I think maybe people I don't know I think there's a lot of reasons for that down. Obviously, the population increase in well county the fact that independence could now vote in this in this primary election, which they couldn't in two thousand sixteen in my last Mary and and and also probably the fact that you know a lot of people are. Are Staying at home more and so they took more time to fill out the ballots I i. don't know, and then I think the other thing is. There was a lot of money spent in house district, Forty Eight and House district, thirty, three, both of those races. There was a lot of money spent on my commissioner. District is coverage as part of both of those two house district so I think all of those factors played into the turnout. Yeah, well, it was good to see people getting out there and exercising their right to vote. Obviously, there's going to be a little bit of a change in the commissioner council there as Perry buck defeats Kevin Ross. You've known Perry Obviously, she'd been around political game for a long time. What are your thoughts on her? Getting introduced If wins the general election in November to this well County Commissioner Council well. You're right. I've known Terry Long, Time I've actually known Perry since we were kids. So you know had the opportunity to work with over a assigned goes along, and obviously I look forward to working with very high You know I respect Perry a lot I think I think she would tell you that. The feeling is mutual and very much. Look forward to working with her. Come come next January. Yeah, there's no doubt about speaking with weld. County Commissioner Chairman Mike Freeman after a win on Tuesday evening. Over Christie MELENDEZ and welcome Mr you've got one hurdle out of the way and still focusing on running this county. How as well county looking at? How are we doing throughout this We're still in the middle of pandemic here. We are, but I think we're doing really well in Weld County. had one fatality in Weld County in the last thirty days. you know so You're still seeing case numbers go up, but that's a lot of that is because of a lot of increased testing. I think the other thing that you're seeing is you're maybe seen? You know more people gathering maybe more younger people that Maybe we're getting exposed to it, but you know. Know we're not seeing we're not saying anything that concerns as far as hospital. Numbers are fatalities, and those are the two numbers that really would worry me is as I said hospitalizations, and the Taliban is not so much numbers I was just we were. We just had that conversation actually on the program that the hospitalization rates still under five percent, which that's for the for the entire state but That's still pretty damn well doing pretty damn well. It's it's really low. In fact, you know I think part of it is you know, and that's one of the concerning things off that'll is. They furloughed a lot of employees because I mean they need to get back to doing the things? The other things that hospitals are there for and they're. They're getting back to doing that, but you know the under the underlying circumstances, if something like this, all of the other things that just kind of get overlooked or don't get taken care of 'cause, a lot of health risks as well and so That's also concerned. Commissioner one of the big questions that that I've been asked, and that I have for you. Is this budget weld county has always been very good about having no short-term or long-term debt. Zach GonNa Change after the recent effects of covid nineteen. No it will not. We're in really good shape in Weld County You know we've always looked at. We've always looked at oil and gas as a bonus when it's there. We've always planned for that. The one thing that we're doing a little bit different is normally as we're getting ready to our budget and here starting like right, pretty quick here we instead of just doing the twenty twenty one budget we're actually doing the twenty, twenty, one, twenty, twenty, two and twenty three budget, combined reason for that is, we're going to have surplus money in twenty twenty one because the oil and gas is two years in arrears, so we're looking at We're looking at the oil and gas in comes from two thousand and nineteen. We'll get paid and twenty twenty one, so we'll be able to take that and use the the tremendous bump that we have there to be able to spread it out over twenty, twenty, two and twenty twenty three We won't see any services decline. We will be furloughing no employees we will be not. We will not be risk any employees we will continue to provide. Provide all the services that are required in Weld County and every employee in Weld. County's job is safe. That's music to a lot of People's Ears Weld County Commissioner Chairman Mike Freeman. speaking of the oil and gas industry. Obviously, it's A. It's a question that everybody has a real gonna see that come. Eh, a certain point, or do you think that the the glory days, so to speak of oil and gas in weld county are behind us. Now I think it'll be back in fact, I'm sure it'll be back I. Mean we've seen? We've seen the ups and downs in the oil and gas industry more times than any of US care to remember two, thousand, eight, two, thousand nine. We saw tremendous decline two thousand fifteen. When we saw the price drop, we saw big. We saw big drop inc.. INC comes back. the oil and gas industry is is so heavily invested in weld, county they have so much infrastructure so much capital They'll be back. They're extremely resilient. And at the end of the day we can talk about renewable energy for all we want. I'm fully supportive of renewable energy. You know we've got more solar farms and more. And more energy and law county than any other county and state that being said, oil and gas is extremely important to not only well county, but the state of Colorado and this country I mean the reason. We worked so hard to get to a SPA. We were energy independence so that we didn't rely on countries that hate us to be able to get this and be able to do the things that we need to do in this country, so l. in doubt, I have fully believable prices come back away now somewhere in the mid thirty I think it'll continue to come back and as we get everybody back to work. Work and we get people back out. Demand for for own gas products. We'll go back up again, so I'm fully confident it may be the end of the year may take till the end of the year. Maybe the beginning of twenty twenty one that I think we'll see it bounce back. You mentioned the the price right now. According to oil price dot com right at forty dollars right there, so it's it's leveling off right there. Commissioner final a final question for you here. was there anything that shocked you from Tuesday's election anything from the primaries Kaci off guard or any of the races that you care to comment on. The one race, maybe that surprised me more than anyone Scott Tipton losing his losing his primary race for in the house. Laura Laura Bogert Winning that I think that was a shock to a lot of people. That one really did surprise me. you know other than that? I you know who knows. That's the thing I i. don't know how you can be I. Don't know how to be surprised when you know it's not like there's any Poli or anything in any of these races and I thought. Everybody thought everybody did a good job. My opponent worked very hard You know it just wasn't meant to be for this point. I thought both Perry Buck and Kevin. Ross worked extremely hard You know it's unfortunate that It's always unfortunate that somebody has to win, and somebody has to lose, but. You know the voters have spoke, and we will move forward, and we'll become even stronger board of county commissioners going forward. Excited about that and then your your friends well Barbara Kirk Myra winning her primary. That's that's really that is really good news. Barbara Cook Meyer is. Is You know she's just a tiger? When it comes to what's going on and and I guarantee you, we need people like Bob, Kirk mired down in Denver to stand up to the governor of the state and she won't back down to anybody, so that's extremely. That's a big win for Weld County in the state. Of Colorado, we'll commissioner congratulations again and go. Hey, maybe this weekend. The fourth of July relax hit around a golf or something like that. Take a deep breath until you until you're back at it. Fight for this county. Absolutely thank you so much, thank you. That is well county. Commissioner Chairman Mike Freeman with a big win in his primary election again, two-time incumbent. We kind of thought that that was going to go the way that it did, but you never can be certain when it comes to politics, so congratulations again to Weld, county commissioner Mike Freeman and again I. DO WANNA throw it out there. That was a very well. Run A by Christie Melendez as well proactive physical therapy locations in Eaton, and in Greeley they're up and going as you heard a commissioner Freeman, talk about these hospitals needed to get started again on some of these quote, unquote surgeries.

Which you guys! Got A lot well. The first thing that I'm going to start off with. If you all didn't know their at. The Nation is divided if a lot of racial tensions that bubbled over from the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis Minnesota This happened last week. I believe it was on the twenty seventh when a officer. Held his knee on his neck and you know fatally pass away was nine minutes. The police officer Derek Shaw then Shogun whatever how you say his name. He was charged with third degree murder as well as manslaughter. And he's currently in jail, but they have set a bomb for him at five hundred thousand dollars with no, no. Restrictions on that. Can Travel. He can do whatever it is that he's needed to do. It's not said he has posted by India. But I kind of Dow that they would tell us if he did because it's a concern for his safety, so but I also think that's public knowledge, so as of right now from what I rag, he's currently still awaiting unless he's able to put up for collateral. But You said Zip two thousand dollars yeah yeah. All right now there has been a call. That the chargers are not enough. Call to have more of the officers charged, and now the result of that the nation has burning there has been about twenty nine states where there have been protests happening silently you know and violently so. The Minnesota July Pol a new person. His name is Keith Ellison. He's a black man. It looks like he's going to be a taking over prosecutions in George Floyd's death. The governor actually transferred the investigation after Minneapolis legislators said they lacked confidence in local prosecutors. So basically what you're saying, is you know your justice team is flu Gezi. That's pretty much what the same. Though, why? Why is that okay anyways? Former Minneapolis. Okay I'm sorry George Floyd. Theft was on May twenty fifth now. Governor Tim Walls announced Ellis's appointment as lead prosecutor shortly after. The Hennepin County prosecutors said he asked Allison to assist in the investigation two days after ten members representing Minneapolis in the State House, asked walls in a letter to transfer the case. He said unfortunately our constituents especially constituency caller have lost faith in the ability of Hennepin. County Attorney Mike Freeman to fairly and impartially investigate and prosecute these cases. that he's spoken extensively with voids who had asked that allison take over the case and they were very clear. They wanted the systems work for them. They wanted to believe that there was trusts. Alison he's a Democrat Democrat. He represented Minneapolis in Congress from two thousand, seven to two thousand nineteen. He said repeatedly that it was too early to answer questions about the case, but he said that he had an excellent conversation with. Freemen and we'll be working together. Which Freeman I believe was a former. Prosecutor that was on the case. You know. He seems like he's very optimistic, but he also. Accusing police officers for misconduct, including homicide and murder is very difficult, and if you look at the cases that have been in front of the public in the last many years, it's easy to see that that is true. He said every link in the prosecutorial chain will come under attack as we present this case to a jury or a fact finder because. Unfortunately. We still have to go and see if there's enough evidence to charge them with any new charges that they have not already been charged with. Before you continue with the story of A. CJ of embarking Cologne. But so. Just just the way I feel about it in this my take on it as of black man here in this country at the age of fifty five years old. Like I, said before it would seem like especially for a job like me. Fifty five I should be underneath the category of Non Threatening Black Man. That is not the case here. Now. It doesn't matter how old you are at the Black Man. The Babylonians. These white folks are not looking at us. As a race, they look at us, ask. Actually to me like Non Union. Of. This officer was named Derek was last name Sandy. Sheldon Show in with the five hundred thousand dollars. Bond of the shave. The state of Minnesota has dropped the ball completely on this one with firing this office. It didn't make sense. This man was act wants. This murder was committed should've? been a locked in jail. No bond no bail. The district attorney before we continue on with the show, the attorney Mike Freeman Babylonian a WHO misspoke anyway at his press conference. He could tell that this man is pro police. He's pro- a Derek Shobin. He does not. Touch the black community as at all the the move, the ellison in as a district attorney, I mean the the attorney general in this case was a good move. But the stadium before we continue what what started, the state of Minnesota should be completely ashamed of cells from the way that they act. There wasn't pre-act. Wasn't reactive at all this situation, and that's why this country is going to Burr as cynic before you continue on. With the looting. And folks running entity stores. Pardon me. Adult. Kentucky I don't condone part of me is like you know what that's not a good look that we run into these stores. And then there's a part of me that says you know what. Burn burn the whole thing now. Because because honestly. All, we go through all the names of all our blacks in a in the last year the last five years. That's been. In a murders by the police department and has been done. Some of these police officers have even been found. Not guilty with in the ones have been found guilty. We have to have videotape or like the young man that got shot in the back in Cleveland by the police officer when he was running away. We had that on videotape. Thank God we had. Tell my whole thing. Is this before you continuing store in? This like we talked about the new norm city. We talked about a new norm with the colonial. Vows the cocoa. Will guess what America this might be the new norm. When the Babylonian police officer who's racist from is all to his GRANDPA blow to his great grandfather back to colonial days back to the civil war days with racism in that family for generations the. I'm to of status, but not that I am not sorry to say that the next time you kill african-american with this man. Even. If, he didn't even resist arrest. That's your me on his neck in murder. This man, please believe me the next time this happened. Let's burn his country. Downside. Sater's I'm hurt. I'm angry of said I have three sons. One is a twenty three. One is twenty nine and one is thirty six, and I'm fifty five and we're all in the same situation. We could get killed out here at any given moment. Yeah so now here's the message. You kill one of us again. We burned down whatever we got burned out. I am so sorry to say I'm sorry to say this is going to continue. Going, Down now because people aren't stick up, it is what it is. You can't get away with this all the time, so you know what? We have the. The corona the viruses out here now. We've got a number of hours the viruses. Officers you kill? LAKME and we go into. This country every single time. Continuous. This is the next time. What! Is the. Next. Victim. So you know what that's it this no one. I. Don't WanNa see. African American pre show wet were enough they're talking about. Everybody calm down. No, no one. No all calm down. Calm down this thing now. I'm so. This is what it is that this is a new role. To. The family of George Fly. They also hired a former New York, city medical examiner. His name is Dr. Michael Bayden to conduct a private topsy. During a press conference Benjamin crump. Stated that they've spoken recently with the district attorney and they're going to be taking custody back of George Floyd's body, and they're going to bring in Dr Michael. Bayden or form an independent autopsy because they said that they've seen in previous cases such as Eric Garner's case that the people who are working with the city for these autopsies come up with things that are they feel such an illusion? Had most recently been performed at autopsy on Jeffrey Epstein at the request of his brother, and he also testified for the defense of OJ Simpson. Now, this is coming. After the initial autopsy report found that force and Floyd's health conditions. They said contributed to his. Demise they said there are times, revealed no physical findings that support a diagnosis, traumatic asphyxia or strangulation. Mr Floyd. Hold on hold on stop. With, just saying is going to my core. It's it's very upsetting. How you will sit and say that they will underlying conditions that caused this man's death in his Babylonian state of Minnesota when we all can see visually. This man is being murdered right in front of our faces. Dan Tell me. Because maybe he had he was diabetic. I'm just throwing that out there with A. That that caused his death. Continuous any day. They said Mr Floyd had underlying health conditions including coronary artery disease. Hypertensive or spying underlying health underlying problem was. He's a black name. Lack man. That was his condition. This is continuous any. They said the combined facts of Mr Floyd being restrained by police. His underlying and that's why would you say the combined the facts of being restrained by the police? He wasn't being restrained. He was married out. He was being. You know suffocated. See the video before that he got out of car. They talked to. They put them against the wall and they put coast on. This video yesterday I think it should be the bank because you stationed is video because it was from high, they beat him up to the even got even. GOING CAR! Police Vehicle Ridiculous. They, said the combined effects of that his underlying health conditions and any potential intoxicants. In his system lightly contributed, says death now. They don't even know if there was any toxic in his system. So why would you even put that in there, right? Because they're trying to make it seem like it was you know? Better for. Offers no idea what was in system. You had no idea they don't have toxicology reports, but what? Would you say that 'cause? He was regardless of what his underlying conditions may be. He was alive before the police stopped him and. Worded when police leppin. and. That's the backs. Yes. It's you so hopefully. This ends handed autopsy. More. You know, say something different. You know hopefully you know regardless it's it shouldn't have happened the way that it did. Matt's the problem. It should have never happened in the first place. Whatever the case wise you had war! You had him restrained either put him in the police car. Take him downtown. Booking. What we do or let him go. Them very simple. I. Traded doesn't have a talk to a couch. I know that that that's how it should go. In the whole thing about this is that? Followed the procedures in this of him. A A. Gel? That would have been the right thing to do this. Man Derek the police officer. Is So races to his core that he took the police procedure through that the window because the man already had eighteen nineteen violations throughout his career. England shouldn't even never been a police officer in the street in the city in the state of Minnesota needs to be held accountable and liable. BEEN THERE! And now that you put him in this deadly hallway killed him. And you got A. Eight minutes and people are. Yelling at the Punahou solves into. Let them go, and this man is yelling for his mother. Got To sit here and tell me about. Maybe they might be some underlying conditions. That might cause his dat now. Of Soda needs to. Reevaluate the whole Babylonian policies, because is going to get ugly if they continue. Business as usual. We are not standing with us no more. No. Any. It just keeps unfolding. Hole then they hit us. Would the nerve? To hit us what you think that's GonNa pacify us with a third degree murder with manslaughter. Slap on the wrist because. Yet again, that's to be just what we do it, and then maybe we will upgrade the charge. This is the second degree murder charge. He didn't wake up in the morning. There's been wake up and. Said I'M GONNA. Go out there and kill George and he didn't say. Even though he was racist to the core. But where he had his knee on his neck. He disregarded a human beings like for seven minutes. It is not may have to go, or manslaughter is if I'm not at you and I take a rock, and just throw it in the air, but hit you on the top of the head and you die. That's manslaughter. Case now used intentionally murder. It's seven minutes. He had seven minutes ago. You know what? I need to kick me off with this man's neck right? He's GonNa die. He knew it, but he was a so much rage because his racism from his grandfather that he couldn't do it and those other officers around them, who has still have been charged yet. China. Keeper fires going into. Day get charged. Wasn't. With that 'cause I don't want nobody charge. No I. I'm on something else. Officers get. Charge Of other type of time so. charged. City. Even as you grow up. Type of thing. You as Attorney General William Barr, says peaceful protests are being hijacked by far left extremists crews with. William Bar you kiss my black ass? I could say that I'm a black man. A. Zoo so on. The Administration Thought of kings of Deflection I don't want hear outside people coming in and burning up the place I will black men and women up being killed on a monthly basis, but Babylonian police officers. Outside is coming in, you look. Outside coming in. Stockton collected, or what's really going down I know that's the first statement that you're gonNA come out and relieve. Outsiders outsiders. Outsiders now. The attorney general should be coming now, talking about drafting some type of new bill for police reform. After lease. You'RE GONNA. On. You WanNa come out and tell us about what we already know as. We know them far left. Groups is out there. We seen with your own resort means. Say. He stated on Saturday a groups of outside radicals. Agitators are exploiting situation to pursue their own separate and violent agenda. He set in many places.

HOUSTON NEW YORK, Pensacola and more demand justice. They're also saying. Protests have come up in land in Toronto, so it's really become a global. hopefully the message is not being lost on deaf ears. The issue here is racism in America. It's not even about these. Taliban goes from there all the way down deeper choose. To healthcare to school lane to housing markets to everything every week, we only just last year passed a law, saying that it not to discriminate against African Americans and their hair. Something that grows out of our head that way. All the way around the border, so we can't wait just police brutality. Stop being so closed minded. That's understand what people are talking about just arrest. This is so much more because it seeps into everything of. The. into the whole system, so people have to get. Lease got I'm not too good, the march. I'm I'm always the one that would go out there and get hit with a bottle when my head. I'm one of those guys. I would trip and fall in. Love you. Know.

Is Based on, not only racist views, but it's also based on corruption once they politicized, and people really want to understand how the police force got started in America to understand where it is where it is today because. I. Mean also have none of us read Lord of the Wise. About these kids that were stranded on an island and had to rule themselves. Basically. When you give any person. Which you know about that book. I. Actually read it when I was eleven twice. Being rigged about you go ahead. But because it's basic psychology, you put anybody in a position to make them think that they're better than somebody. They're going to abuse every. Town. So you out police that are told you are no more uncared black Chinese Y. You're going to enforce that because ain't nobody around when these cops are out on their beats and their boy, their partner, all their in Dan supposed to. Protect their life who they tell everything to who they see more than their families got their back. Simple I don't care if your wife's black care. Whatever whatever? Whatever? That's how it's going down. A privilege. Of. Middle physically that these Babylonian officers, these racist officers filled that they can get away with everything out for Shaw in the society that we live in real time that these officers, the white officers know through history, even in the last recent three and four years that they're co workers, killing black men in the street, and they still go out. DEMOC Shabas knew about all these other black folks has been killed by right offices throughout the last are is. Atlanta's drop on this planet yesterday, and still knowing all this information.

We looked into each other with I. Contact and his sole said. Don't shoot and that's the only reason why I'm here today. But if I was a right in a white woman would have been. Happy. New. Thirty years. As a civilian! and. How the window? Treatments of. A Straw? Man It's what. Will GonNa. Take notes you know. You know and and they and they know. Being a member of the makes if all. Black Man. He was. In that. By its, involvement. Once again. Joe Hudson, so. You know what it is what we go through so. We will continue. We ought to. Listen and that's another thing. That's another thing for me. I have a twenty three year old son I have a twenty nine. Thirty six. This is affecting. Bobby has a a twenty two twenty, three twenty. When you will, so so this is scary to all of us, but all angry with all his all. We go, listen bless you. Bless all. Continuing you. Want. He's one of them. He wants to. Do to the protests. What they are doing is. I'm sorry target. As. As. Protests and like I said I. Don't know why target. Or being targeted. I. Don't know targeting targeting. so much and target that everybody talking for I think it was. I think it was just because target was one of the big box stores that got. Right rank, and then everybody just ran with it. But. They said that they are heartbroken by the death of George floor. Causing across the country, At this time, they said they've made a decision to close a number of their stores. They said they anticipate. Most stores will be closed temporarily. On top of everything on on. Base that our focus will remain on our team members safety helping our community. They said employees will receive up to fourteen days pay and are allowed to work at other stores. This, comes after target stores were looted. Again, oh, did I say they plan on closing one hundred and seventy-five of their locations? Ours but also. No that's it sorry I was going to see something. Is Weird that do the cocoa. Couldn't shutdown target. A! A lot of people out there. And you know what I do, sympathize with UCLA and and Bobby, and even with myself. We have elderly folks in our family. An elderly folks need them medication. Are Burning down the whole situation. That's the one thing that I would say that. We need to be mindful love that there are folks that sick in Shuten, and now they should burn everything. Please keep in mind that. Our elderly needs the medication, but I do like I'm not condoning. I'm cosigning anything. But some of these folks went I hiding communities of different cities and started burning all doubt. Be. My Of. Shut in because they need medication. And ensure that they need it, but I also think it's true. You know also to the point that RJ said about. You know the copying shown and stuff like that like people need to see I think it's important that people jazz continue. Talk to speak out to call out. People who are being working and people who are acting like they don't know what's going on like I. Feel like wearing a nation right now. Where every or we were where everybody felt like everything needs to be politically, correct everything needs to be. We need to include all people. We need to do all this and all that and that's a great idea. A country that's based on race that started off with racism. You can't just set people free and say okay. You're free. And segregation than segregation and every and everything. They've never on time. Nobody's ever say you know I. Did this and that was racist and I'm sorry like nobody's saying anything 'cause I. Get it your guilt. You feel bad because your family may have been a part of this. Because your y that this happened. But. You can't just say well I. Think so everything's okay. because it's we're. Not. Everybody wants to protest at. Everybody wants to come out, but if we if we all felt this way, why are these things happening? So it's because you want. Because, everybody wants to come out and be by the police. But obviously it's not because we're at where we're even the white people that are protesting you don't know when you go into work the next day and you ask me you can be protesting George, voice and then tomorrow.

They get the get employed by holy. They're already races. It's facts. You gotta take. A because of their. and. They messed up. That's what the years to that happens.

How many times can we say in the last three years that you've seen or heard? A story of a black officer killed in a young right boy? You don't hear those stories. For no rank. Justified so?

Yet it was no, it was quite enlightening to see a lot of young kids down there. Because you know the generation now they're predates lacks A. Lot of things. That they don't really care, so I was shocked to say the least when I got down to see so many young kids disappointed at the same time that it wasn't more black people there when it's our 'cause we're fighting for. So that kind of disappointed me. I was happy. There was over fifteen hundred people there. You know. It was it was a few times. Where almost got low rowdy, you know, I do have on my on my live.

All matter blue lives matter F. This F. that and it was another bigger black guy. Walking his face, it was like you say it again. And I'm like. I want to put the camera. or at-bat. He kind of took his little white ass over there less. Guarantee you that. Well good thanks for observation. So. Listen. I do have there is A. There is a pre the inner protests going on in east. STROUDSBURG Pennsylvania. POCONOS EVERYBODY! Yeah. That's the POCONOS. It's going on today. It's going to be at four o'clock. I don't know the individual personally. That's throwing it. But it was on facebook. They're going to be marching from Dan's Berry car. If anybody knows where that is and the on street in Stroudsburg. They're going to be going from there all the way to the courthouse. We think on seventh. Street STROUDSBURG so. A lot of people are getting together Protesting for me because my sister did it in Orlando, it got a little rowdy down there she was. You want rally you want, you'll get this. And this is a peaceful protests. Keys Fall. People probably have their kids out there, so we'll, we'll wait. We know kids man. He? Kinda was like ooh. Okay, craft, initiative see you know you know when you babies. No. Is just that you never. Listen People WanNA bring their kids. You should be able to get your kids to safety, but.

About the piece, this man is dead. Are Stressing. Proud that. Go on with. The POCONOS and shake it up then they are your hold on all those. In. That, don't even allow the black man to have an event and we got to go through all the red tape I mean fitness. Trying to throw a party in the Poconos at talk. Telling me, what type of music that I shouldn't Clemmie? At my own event and paying rectal, the place and Role that. And you sit there and tell me you'll shop. You can't play this certain type of music because I own establishment. Averages the age of thirty five to sixty five years old, and all these folks make fifty thousand dollars a year, and you've got the nerve enough to say that to me in the Pocono area up into apple years. Lena kids home. Show Hobby show Sydney Ball. Coach off. Like, those that probably the first time that have been so speechless. About stuff that Gonna I I don't have anything to say. I'm scared of what I might say or holly might affect. Me and my family I have a been a twenty eight year of fun, so it kind of disappoints me that this is all still happening. all I can do paintbrushes brothers every day. And my cousin made of when you have somewhat when it happens to the family in that it has been used to go to my cousin. It was really hard and. To show you. A partner holidays. When she said that people should have white people in a bat. Getting need a shouldn't walk. It's me that we are people. They should be in the front line and they should be controlling things over. Little Rowdy, and then that that the COP. Out Home everybody. Be. For you. Live here you I listened. But humming the. Peaceful rallies. We have to go through. I mainly more of this black, white or black folks in front that. Bologna's in the battle. Komo news is this has got to stop this. Swing it out for people to heal us as the league knows. It there's no number is just just gonNA happen. Should be a little peaceful because violence show Hugh. You. was. There's no more nearing. They hear him. Taliban give birth. They here in this man wall brutally murdered a black man. This no more no more of that. Whenever they do it again. We burned out more cities. That's it. That's the North Bay can get up and do this. This man who murdered this. George Loy. In real tap and real time with Sean he knew all the other incidents that's been going on in the last three years with. White officers killed. He knew that he knew that he does he like I said you didn't jump on this land yesterday. And it's a all of that. He still murdered a black man because of because it is racism racist person. So to do the peaceful protests. I get it but things that'll be shaken up a little bit. That's all I'm saying like. This is not. A. This is coming home news. At a certain point? Okay. You can shake them up but as A whole still got a little chip. Because they have to see it, and it comes feeling, but place on the. Say. I said when I when I when I. Was Trivial God bless. God Bless Goblet and I know he's not coming outside for the rest of the year and I get it. Unless you godless. We love the. Buck sexton. Attribute this to is even if you take police brutality out of that right. Just think of the hundreds and thousands of people stories that I personally cover. The gun deaths that we have had in America. That's everybody massacres. Sandy Hook Connecticut Elementary. Children. How hold on? Hold on, you're absolutely right. and has no hold on. And no was. No laws. No? Sir Reform. For. So you know what you people want to protest. Knowing you. People want to burn up. Find Joy. Some people want to pray fine to I. Say you do everything because. It is the way it is. Because they want that way. Millions of Americans are killed every year by gun violence and they have not done anything. And they say no okay so. I guarantee you every black person in America as a blackboard. I bet those damn laws. James then maybe. Won't be. Too, many of them are in jail or thrown with dumb charges. Qualify for it in the first. Thing. Okay, so he's. Not Making. It worse by. Like I was saying. Whole Realm. You're not in it like I was saying before. With. Know, how feel about guns? And the gun laws in the gun lobbyists in the NRA. Take all the guns away from everybody and this country. We're the only country on earth that every police officer has got to walk around with a gun. In London and England England and France and Spain, and all these, even in the Soviet Union Japan. The police officer doesn't even have a gun they got. Special units of police that have guns. You.

Calling It Quits, Book Club Finale

"Ladies and gentlemen welcome to the right time bomani jones listen on the e._s._p._n. App at buck as podcast ashtrays review. Let's give us five stars you wash ause. I'm inclined to believe you are hater <hes> coming up on this episode of the right time. Dwight howard is a laker again. Uh we still trying to act like serena. Sharipova is a rivalry and also wrap up the right time book club with mike freeman author of jim brown fierce live of an american hero but i verse yeoman. Andrew luggage quit his job the other day. I'll see that no no. I mean retiring yea yea but he just went out there and quit his job. I'll blame for quitting his job but he went out there and he quit his job of and here. He is by the way saying that he's about quit his job. This certainly isn't how i envision. This plan this but i'm gonna retire. This is not an easy decision. Honestly it's the the hardest decision on my life but it is the right decision for me. I have to say i have been amazed by the level of judgment that people have had about andrew lucked deciding that he was going to retire. It seems pretty clear that he had talked to all the people the relevant parties and let them know that this was coming. I think he wound up being done a disservice by whoever called adam schefter and put that out there before luck himself had the opportunity to share the news because i do think that that created a bizarre set of circumstances where they're playing this preseason games on the sideline the people in the stands know that he he is retired but he hasn't had a chance to say it so now he's as out here getting booed and it it was a lot there and i think it put him in a bad place and i know there's been a lot of speculation asian as to who it was that leected i mean i would assume that it would be somebody from the cold side. I honestly have no idea but i do think that they did him wrong by putting putting him in that situation where his last memory of walking out of that stadium as a player even though he wasn't in the game but his last memory walking out of that stadium as a player is going to be getting booed by fans fans who seemed up until that point to love them a lot and to hang all their hopes on him and then it is berated him basically on the way out and and the thing that i find strange about the judgment is is andrew. Luck owe you money because when people own me money and they make decisions that either like cost cost them money or interfere with their ability to get money. I immediately think to myself so when you give me my money right but andrew lucked an omi- me money gave his andrew local you know he does not all right you think he owed anybody in a stadium money 'cause. I don't think he owed anybody in that stadium money eight oh you money. Why do you care if he goes to work. I personally have a spectacular level of respect for anybody who has lived their lives in such a way that that allows them to wake up one day. Look around and be like you know what. I got to do this no more. I quit not coming back anymore. Why are you not coming back 'cause i. I ain't got to do this. No more i remember this was in two thousand thirteen. I guess it was around march april somewhere. There must have been march all right and i. I didn't have a full-time job at the time but i was doing like you know around the horn appearance and stuff like that. I'm doing those two three four times a week depending on when he was so i didn't have a day day job but i still have work to do but i knew i was going to be getting a job soon and once i got the job it was gonna be real consuming as you know what i'm just not going to do around the horn or anything anything else for a month and that month turned into two months you know why because it was so good not having a job but not needing the money it was fine. I was doing all right. My expenses are pretty low. I need an assessment. I ain't even go nowhere for the most part. I just sat around my house. I'd wake up. I'd take a shower. I sit down on the couch and watch t._v. All day long all day long. I would not here chasing. No dreams here like wow. There's all these projects. I wish i had time to do hell now. None of that you know what i was doing. I wouldn't go into work no more. That's what it was and i remember i went to. I went up somewhere. I used to go aradio stays as you do some work at and i just went up there to see some people and i was there and the woman who was working in the desert asked me what i've been to and i was like i've just been sitting at the house doing nothing often and the look of jealousy and like jesse. She was mad at me but like she really looked at me like yo. I really wish i could just sit around the house and do nothing because the whole reason she was showing up at their job and sitting at a desert because she had to as you look does not have to do that. There's so many due to our in this league right now who have to do these things they have to keep going <music> out there subjected themselves to the physical abuse because for whatever reason at that moment they cannot let the job go whether it be because what the job does for them on the inside how it makes some feel how it defines their existence or simply because the rent do like adrian peterson. We're out of money about agent stores where adrian peterson people money now we know why it is adrian peterson peterson gotta keep coming to work say anything else about angela. You know you money so you don't care if you go to work. If people to care of aging peterson go to work he apparently owed them money and so one of the greatest running backs of all time is is gonna keep dragging himself out there trying to get deb rid because he needs it. Andrew luck looked around and just said to himself. I don't have to do this anymore. Therefore i am not going to do and what he talked about that i've found to be interesting just the idea that he was basically like you know what he may football. Oh ball sound like he made football sound like making your bid gave to you. Make your bed every day. I do okay. I've grown over time to be more bid maker in my life. Having stretch where you live with a woman will make you more of a bed maker right that became more more of a bid maker but my problem with being the bid maker before was very simple. All do is get back in it like like like oh but to get back into bed now. That's not the greatest logic in the world to us but we're talking about making your bid man while i'm just going to straighten his thing right backup. Just get back in and ain't nobody coming over to see this. They felt like it was just a presentation. I ain't doing it. That's what football sound light to andrew luck. Were basically with these injuries. He was doing doing the equivalent of getting out of bed making it up only to get back into bed again and what the bed was for him was getting his body cracked repeatedly. I'm hurt. I go work really hard to get back from being hurt and rehab is a miserable process or anybody who's been through it. They know oh initiatives like regular people rehab god forbid what it is but he's cats out here playing on a professional level aim at i get hurt 'i rehab and then you know what happens happens. After our rehab a comeback out here and i get hurt again and so then i go rehab also i can come out here and get hurt again again and he said all the time made him a miserable person very unhappy just how it felt to always be heard to always physically a be in pain couldn't do it anymore so he does now. Why am i gonna keep doing this and he said that <hes> and this is before this made this point before that he dealt with those injuries before and what he had to learn was how to define himself outside of football he went and got married. You know and all the things that come along with that and he realized like a man. I got a life for myself that is outside of playing football and playing football is causing me unhappiness and i have these other things that make me feel better. We'll i'm going to go ahead and do those things. I got bread. I got my money. I'm straight as released released today. I'm good as released a my money so i don't have to do this. I'm not going to do this. I can't understand why that is something that everybody in that. Stadium would applaud because every single one of those people wishes they could walk in today job and quit every single one. How many allied your job right now. How many are truly job because you wanna be dead job and i'm a in that include by the way some of y'all who actually love your jobs who really really really enjoy your jobs. You're at de job because for some reason you feel like you have to be at that job. Maybe you stack and for the kids college foreign right. Maybe you send him money back to your parents. <hes> maybe you just single and brogan decided to keep a roof over your head whatever it is but reason you go into work. Tomorrow is because you wanna come back to an air conditioned home after you get off work. Andrew luck is go come home to his air conditioned home but you know what he ain't got to go to work. No more is is that not the american dream. I remember this dude. I was jim riggleman. He's been a manager of the washington nationals and he was trying to get an extension engine. They wouldn't give him an extent that pointed outperformed anybody's expectations and they told him they wouldn't give him an extension. You want an extension east quit eleven but went to a hotel bar posted up and start drinking with people and taking pictures and everything else you need this. I don't is that not the dream. Tell me how that is. Not the american dream lies over me. I can tell you this right. I work. I'm a pretty decent money. I get my stack on right and it's a little tricky given me because i get my stack on but i'm single and i don't have children and i don't expect necessarily to be single and childless forever which means i probably need to give some bread but would you crazy. If you don't think i sit around here day what mike cash out point right like what is the point that i can walk away from this if i want to not because i don't like my job but i mean the point where i can look up and i can say i don't have to do anything i don't want to do it. That's what i'm saying that. I don't have to do anything that i personally do not want to do. Most of our lives are dictated and governed by the things that we have to do with capitalism after all. That's the way most of our lives are dictated now. Man andrew luck reached the point of what freedom is in this capitalism awesome which is i don't have to get on the hamster wheel anymore. I don't have to be part of the rat race anymore. I can move on own with my life. I admire that and are also admired for him. Just from talking to enough former athletes about how hard it was for them to retire and how hard could be for them to find definition in their lives and defined meaning because so much what they done have been poured into football because they get to the places that they got to require such a single minded focus like such a lovely myopia that what do you do when it's done. What do you do when you walk away. Like who are you. If you're not andrew luck franchise quarterback who are you exactly and these are the questions that a lot of guys as struggle will with answering struggle with figuring out because their value to the larger world has always been dictated by the idea that they are football players and you looked around and was like i'll letting maybe that's my value to do the larger world but i got a little world that i care a lot more about dinners outside world and now i am going to focus on this little little world. That's what i'm going to do and that is truly legitimately. One hundred percent admirable and i think something that people ought to consider they think about this. I ain't heard of football player. Call him a quitter yet. I ain't heard anything from the guys on his team referring to him <hes> as any sort of a quitter yet only people that seem to have anything to say about him in that regard are people who don't play football aw that's it people who don't play football like even seeing a former athletes talk this way about look not football players but i'm just like oh. What are you talking about like. What what is this idea of. Love is a competitor and they're like the ultimate competitor is as a kid sterling works at indiana who like he's always been very good to me but he was like yeah. I think a firefighter is the ultimate competitor not andrew luck and i asked this question. What is a firefighter competing against. That's that's that's not really a competition right like the firefighter eight hundred dollar winsome lose them. No no no no no. That's that's not what this is like. Yeah we get it being football player. Maybe not as important to the universe is being a firefighter. The high end of the risk of being the firefighter may be higher than the high in risk of being football player however engage. You let me know if i'm wrong here because i don't know what that many firefighters but i know that when i be watching stuff if they show about firefighters you see a whole lot of clips at him sitting around playing cards waiting on a call and how football works in a slow day working football means somebody's gonna be hitting your kidneys throughout his injuries andrew leggatt at that point the lacerated kidney and by the way people love to talk about. He had a lacerated kidney. He was peeing blood after the game. What the hell did you think a lacerated kidney meant like. I think people his love the idea. Get down here talking about he was peeing blood after the game he said peeing in blood again. The dude had a lacerated kidney. I know what lacerated means. I know kidneys. Do i understood there. I was probably blood in his urine. Wouldn't that hard figure out didn't need walk you all the way up to that guy's just so you know but dude at a torn on labor room now this thing they couldn't figure out what to do with and everything else man that sounds arthur sounds arduous that sounds difficult that sounds miserable if a man and be able to take that moment and walk away saying that sounds like a hero because that's being dramatic but that sounds like a man who exists with a level of freedom both financially and with his own mental constitution and with his own personal confidence within himself that sounds like a man that i think most of us wish that we could be he like because that is a man who secured himself secured his place as pockets of secure with both. I salute him for that now with that in mind this thing about ourselves here for us right now. Community gave a name for they.

Yes how you feel about that game. I'm not sure how to feel about it yet. All i can i think of is the sports illustrated cover with gnashing howard is now this is going to be fun and i've seen a bunch of different different reproductions of it where it's like oh insert alex caruso if anyone knows who else greece him as he's like balding twenty something guy in dwight howard of the front run. It doesn't spill a good future. I just want to point out to you. That dwight only played nine games in washington last year but the year before he played eighty one games charlotte played late thirty minutes a game and averaged seventeen and thirteen in those nine games he played for washington. The average thirteen points nine rebounds in twenty minutes a game. He has averaged a double-double for every season of his career. He is a surefire hall of famer. He is a guy who while he wants. The ball does not need the ball in order to be effective effective. He is a dude. That does a bunch of the dirty work that a lot of people don't want to do while playing in the n._b._a. Like his ima- dwight howard his never averaged more than thirteen shots from the field so he can be out there playing with a bunch of other dudes. I it's hard to find a guy who's as good as he's been was long as he's been who does is now require the ball in order to get things done and nobody likes him but what's weird about the fact that nobody likes him. Is nobody ever calls him a jerk. They just don't like him. He is the ultimate. Try hard and try hard. Art is very very difficult to deal with on a consistent basis but people don't like him to the point where he assigned a non-guaranteed non-guaranteed deal with the lakers where he got lectured basically by anthony davis rajon rondo couple of other dudes on the team to to let them know what they expect of him and basically what they won't tolerate of him. The way woes termed. It was quote he's been warned unquote and i need you to stop and think about what i just told you rajon rondo who is not always been the best like person in all the other places he has been is coming in explaining to somebody how you gotta act so other people might like you. Can you think of anybody literally anybody who has been in this sort of situation because normally the argument is as long as you can ball as long as you could produce people will put up with all kinds of stuff that you are willing to do to white howard's biggest problem ah they he tries too hard and they let him know that will not be tolerated. What that's where he is. Oh by the way this might be a great pickup because again when we talk about the actual basketball part of it what is the argument against against picking up to white as a basketball player. They were gonna try demarcus cousins out there before he got hurt again and i don't think there's any argument to be made at this point that demarcus cousins thousands would have been a better player for the lakers dwight howard in large part because demarcus cousins requires the ball so much effort will be a lot of shots left of the people the lebron anthony davis out there to why come here set these screens crash these boards protect the rim. No this should be like if you're a lakers fan usually be looking at this and being like yo our basketball team just got better except people disliked white so much they they can't even think about it in those terms i i still have to argue with people about whether or not dwight howard four-time defensive player player of the year probably should have been a fifth time because he got a job that year they gave it to tyson. Chandler is a hall of famer. It is so like really really people will argue you into the ground explain to you. I need to see more from white before i see whether or not he is a hall of famer. How in the world is that possible and just so you know. Basketball reference dot com does a hall of fame probability calculator they add in a whole bunch of different factors based on the history of people getting into the hall of fame and they then said for white alright is due i to hall of famer according to their metric dwight howard it's probably hall of fame. Probability is ninety ninety nine point three ninety nine point three percent. That's the likelihood of dwight howard get into the hall of fame. Wjm based on his resume ninety nine point three and i still got people out here like no dwight. Howard is not a hall of famer. Just 'cause was y'all don't like him now. I always been kind of dismissive of some of the distasted people half white because i think a lot of basically still win back to the van gogh anything thing which i thought was a little bit low from hawaii but in the end of the world to me how stan got over it. I really think this is going to be a big deal for anybody. Else's stand god over now. Everybody bitel state. May i what i didn't realize that time though was kobe was not the only person that is really disliked. This dude really really really really really disliked. This dude and it's gotta be confounding for dwight. 'cause all white is trying to do was make y'all like him as his program from the beginning. I'm just trying to make thank y'all like me and looking at the white like bro. We don't want to like you. We're not interested in liking you. We don't want to like you so house is going to go for him with the lakers right. Although walkabout dwight dwight left the lakers they haven't made the playoffs since dwight left. Orlando took a long time before they made the playoffs again in the rockets had some up and downs ups and downs after white left there but it wasn't like they suddenly got better because he wasn't on the team is is a legitimately league good basketball player right and even the numbers that he's putting up now this is after that terrible back injury and it hasn't quite been the same sense but he's still been a more than serviceable visible n._b._a. Player and nobody likes him. I can't think of a comparable situation to this with him. Like i feel like dwight. Looks up and see somebody's other dudes like. I think what tim tebow ultimately i._t. N._f._l. Player wasn't good but like as a personality analogy is a persona of sorts. I think that's the white saw himself as being right. He was gonna bring jesus in everybody's life and all of that stuff. Nope didn't work that way away dingo that way for him at all. He just wanted to be the nice guy that everybody light whose smiled who performed for everybody and then one day everybody right. He looked up and was like yeah. We don't find this to be funny anymore. We just don't we don't we don't we're not. We're not digging like we used to. We're here for you think part of it with white his jealousy. I'd imagined somewhat but i think i mean there's a lot of guys in lead to be jealous of. You know what i mean. Whoa i guess my point is that do i can eat like fifty. Candy bar still looks like he does. That's a great point. That is a great point. I think you you know what do i figured like his thing when he was earlier. I'm just a big old kid and being a big old kid. I mean now. He is thirty three years old old. Don't go over the same way. People don't dig it like that and he never quite adjusted you remember. He did the lead jenkins article. You know everybody did the lead. Jenkins redeem myself article will. He did the lead jenkins article. That didn't work because people just did not want to hear that do win out there and talked about i. It's a cut his parents off because they were hitting up his pockets. He actually talked about the fact that you know. Do i came in talking about jesus but he got all these kids you know we're trying to reconcile his upbringing with the fact that he enjoyed having sex and trying to deal with it everything they came along along with that. I mean like he did everything. Y'all just look back like we will rock rocky like that. That's all. I just can't think of anything like it. I'm not i don't even know how much judgment i have for other people in the fact that they feel that way about him because everybody seems to feel that way about him except for me. I just can't think of anything. That's close to it but i'm telling you there's a good chance that this is. I'm not saying this thing that puts the lakers over the top but the lakers got a lot better by getting dwight howard. You're not concerned about spacing at all with the white on floor. I would be no more concerned about him and spacing mcgee. That's a fair point. You you know like that's that's that's it so the other reason i am not that concerned with him on spacing is that he can still get out there and play in the pick and roll so if if he was playing was like to stand on the block and wait for people to throw the ball okay then i think we'd have a problem but he's going to be coming out there on the perimeter to help these guys and spray you know run into the rim and then if there's not there at the rim than going somewhere else now i like it. I'm not saying this is going to happen but this turn out to be a very significant free agent edition having him could really make things different for the lakers and all there is supposed to talk about is how much people don't like dwight howard. Damn homie gabi do much of the tennis. I do do the much of the tennis okay. Thank you struggle. He's guy. There might be a tennis fan but i wasn't sure out really know people's names like that though i would some event <hes> in new york last week it was a nike. Did it was queens of the court. I think they called it and it was a a lot of women's tennis players and they set up <hes> at this park on house in six and they had a lot of kids there who were tennis players they filled up the crowd with them and they got to come out and they had the chance to lay hit balls with <hes> the players they ate. It ain't gives you rita came. First cerita waves rena dipped but after did they got hit balls with all kinds of players who have won grand slams whose names i don't know they were rattling off resumes but he's women. I guess she won wimbledon. In two thousand seventeen gene or is he the three time grand slam champion dan mullen who this is and they say that name i never heard an outward walk and eastern european woman that i had never seen like like american interest in tennis in their way is just kind of waned as we don't have that many american tennis players left that are like at the height in that way although we've actually actually we've got more of them than i think credit forces interesting. They're disproportionately black. Maybe it has. I have no idea but anyway i went out today event and you know who the people were. Amryah sharipova was there. It wasn't a rousing ovation gate. It wasn't a rousing ovation as let's just say. The crowd seemed to be much more serena crowd than maria crowd. If i'm with you a is one of those one of those situations but anyway i saw him out there <hes> and then then after that the draw came out and we had sharipova and serena williams playing in the first round now the game was going on during a birthday dinner. I went to the bathroom at some point and i saw that the score was one one in the first set by the time dinner was done serena beat her six one six one and as that last game is in progress on watching sharipova or one of the game's over the last one but watch sharipova job and she's got the ball and she's doing driven ball before she serves. I dunno dribbling the right way to put it but whatever i say things as i know so she dribbling getting ready to serve and and you can just see it interface. I think she wanted to cry and i'm not saying there's like oh boo view of saying this like literally like she wanted to cry. She looked miserable israel. She looked as though she was being embarrassed in front of the world and so here's thing for me clearly some of y'all out here love maria sharapova and i noticed some of your love maria sharapova because you have to love maria sharapova in order to try to sell this idea the idea somehow the maria sharapova and serena williams are rivals just because sharipova beat serena a couple times like fifteen eighteen years ago literally like a couple times like fifteen years ago and i even like a couple of times. It is literally a couple times. The the like fifteen years ago is guessing because i'm not sure the exact timing on the dates all right but offer that somebody fight decided that this was a rivalry what has happened in that rivalry sense. Serena has beaten her nineteen gene straight times nineteen straight times. Sharipova has not taken a set off serena in breath ten years ten years et gave me. If i'm wrong didn't serena give it a blues at the olympics. I believe so two two thousand twelve olympics six love six one out at wimbledon and the olympics six love six one and you know whose fault it is y'all's fall. It's y'all's fault because serena wooden have the doer like that if y'all one out here trying to act like like somehow they were arrives the need to present somebody to have alongside serena williams as a rival. That's why y'all in this situation. Asian serena beat anybody else nineteen times in a row. Is there anybody else that she is. This consistently dog walked in the way she maria sharapova pope. Do you think that that is strictly about the way that their games match up because wash sharipova. Maybe a little overrated. She has five grand slam titles and she has won the career your grand slam right like she's not annakournakova or anything like that but she out here getting dog walked by serena every single time. Why 'cause y'all just don't. I don't know how to act if y'all act right and behave with some level of rationality when it comes to things then this woman had to dog wall every time she come out here but majok keep trying to make this a rivalry therefore she out here fighting back tears because she knows she going get embarrassed to get and she has certainly added to this. There was that time that she talked about. Serena williams is being somebody who dated people's husbands or boyfriends or whatever it was and everything else. You shouldn't have said that. You should have said that. The audio was gives you more dog walking and as he was out there doll right snatching about at least come on over here just talking her right. Now we go in this wait. No no no no no sat trying to eat. Stop trying to eat implants over there. They go mess up your stomach. We go in this way dog wall because we needed to came up with some phony only notion of a robbery lease tiger woods and david duval people gave up on that early halewood tiger and phil people gave up on that this one people we'll still try to halfway make this into a thing like i shouldn't have all been no worthy. This arena sharipova will play in in the first round of this tournament. That shouldn't have been something. I even knew in the first this place but i knew people kept trying to make it a thing and then they think you both doll walk had to be done. Do i have to bring up. The the games are just having a laugh yeah. Eh do i even have to bring up like the uncomfortable part of this that all of this is centered around race ace. Every single bit of it is centered around race like the contrast is so staggering <hes> serena williams being serena williams being where serena williams from looking like serena williams looks being built the way the serena williams built and being as good as serena williams is on the other side by sharipova who basically looks like the woman that can you imagine emerged from the caucasus mountains right who had this career where she has made way more endorsement money. The serena williams has he's been treated far differently by the tennis press them serena was never and don't forget the fact maria sharapova got caught cheating and then came up with a cockamamie lie about. I thought thought i could do this even though she was taking medication for years that you're only supposed to take for six months at a time <hes> but i feel feels like he has eight is directly but it feels is always they needed some white woman to hold up as a competitor to the dominance or someone who is on his similar plane as the dominant serena williams and they got somebody. That was a couple of times. It was like oh man. We finally got it and people just walk away from it. It was still holding on that damn tight they just could not walk away from it because they needed somebody to be on the same level as this black superstar tennis player that they had and i was kind of interesting to think about because they're always was this one person you could have put on that same level if you wanted to you know her sister who is somehow become wildly underrated over the years it a name maria sharapova sharipova if it is but we forced it and we forced it and we forced it and then again sharipova the things you say that get you in trouble. <hes> do you remember that game was about how she didn't wanna. Gotta get muscular because she wanted to still look feminine and all that stuff. I remember i mean who do we think he was talking about. What do we think that she was talking talking about and that stuff on its face doesn't seem so bad but you have to remember the the racism that's around. Serena williams. Honestly now is not not nearly as loud as it was. In the previous decade right like that was back when you had host of prominent morning radio show in this country talking about those women and calling them apes like with no compunction just like just like being honest straight ahead we even honest is the wrong way to put it but you understand what i mean read by this literally calling the monkeys calling them gorillas like all of those things doing that and nobody got fired for that. Nobody lost their job for doing that. This was just the way that they were treated and they were discussed in public and again that being juxtaposed against maria sharapova. I don't know fully how much sharipova riposte consciously was playing into this but she made a whole lot of money by not being serena williams like that was her selling point was not being serena williams and let me tell you something that we learned over the years and we damn sure saw this last dog walking. She danced very no serena. Williams james ben no serena williams before shingle beano. Oh serena williams later and she ain't no serena williams right now. She is not those things she is. Maria sharapova and it is cool. Let her be maria sharapova but she is not maria sharapova of the sharapova serena williams robbery there is no such rivalry as i've said many times before this is a rivalry and the way the globetrotters and the generals have a rivalry they and i- rivals they just play all the time and that is the case that we have had here and it has been uncomfortable over over the years but the only thing that honestly has made intolerable is watching serena dog walk her every time. Did you see the tennis channel tweet tweet during the match that said us cohen. Maybe this time will be different. Serena cohen no sereno takes. It's the first set six to one. It got like two and a half thousand likes and that i saw a bunch of people sub tweeting and being like who exactly is us in this right. It's so insidious right like soul subtly thrown in there and worked in there and that way and seeing this is the thing that gives me gay. Where's maria sharapova from russia. Uh where serena williams from south central los angeles. Yes the united states out here rooting for russia like i think about that for a second like that tells you everything and if there's ever been a great frustration i've had with the way the williams sisters have been treated. My good buddy lawrence always makes his point. He was like the greatest story in twentieth century. American sports is the story the williams sisters and he has a great argument behind now. You have to fully spell it out for you but when you really think about where they came from where they wound up the fact the people didn't want them there. In the first place all the different things these women have done with their lives in the outside of tennis and what they've managed to pull off this is one of the most amazing stories and like <unk> a decidedly american story writes rags to riches types they out here hitting tennis balls out a shopping cart incompetent because their dad had a vision and he was going to raise two great tennis players and gang bangers rolling pass being like oh keep up the good work and all of this stuff and they got to wear they are a y'all here rooting footer russian lady who ever you happen to be though what how people about waving at u._s._a. and f- flag and everything else y'all here rooting for russia uh against the most american story in sports that we could think of people holding up russia as a rival to american dominance when the hell did y'all start art doing that an answer. Is you started doing that. When russia looked like this and a miracle looked like that it's y'all's fault serena be make girl cry all right. It is the finale alley for us here on the right time booklet. Thank you so much for everybody who's read. Everybody was sitting questions. Everybody who has contributed <hes> you can check us out again at the hashtag the right time time book club in case you want to catch up and our book this summer was jim brown fears life of an american hero by mike freeman and with that in mind signed joining us today on the show is the author of the book. Mike freeman mike man. I i wanna tell you why i chose this book. I read the book when it came came out and i used it when i taught a class at duke a few years ago on the black athlete in america and i found it to be very interesting and very even handed but part of why i wanted to revisit this. This book was with our changing attitudes in public about matters particularly about violence against women and domestic domestic violence that jim brown. We've known this about jim brown for a long time just taking it as part of the jim brown story but it was kind of interesting to read bag now as our sensibilities of kind of change but the jim brown story stays to say you know well. I i wanna thank you for doing this. A lot of appreciated is really just terrific that you do this so thank you first of all and and one hundred percent correct it's it's changed our sensibility of have changed dramatically and you know the one thing looking back on it. The book is hasn't word hero in it. I don't know if i will use that word now. In fact i probably wouldn't in fact sherwood. That's how much i think things he's have changed and you bring up a good point that we always knew this about brown. <hes> and this goes to i think the fault of of men and how myopic we can be an even men who think they have some sort of understanding up domestic violence who think of themselves as good men who think of themselves as men that sympathize and empathizing protect the woman and they'll circumstances but even men like us think of ourselves that way have huge holes because we're men because we're taught by society of certain way and and even if you are open minded and think a certain way in our in our progressive yours you still have a huge hole so in the book i talk about y. Call me a hero but it was looking back on it. It's just there's no way i should have done that and and everything that's happened since i wrote that book has dramatically altered our society also how we think of things and ultimate how i think of written this book it's i i love revisiting it because it makes a look back on it and you rarely get times on life to just sort of look back on something and say i'm going to correct this. I'm gonna think of it this way. I think of the differently and that's what i've done with this book so appreciative of you for that but it's it's their parts of it that look at i go. I would have done that very differently. There's very few books. I've written. We're done that or columns or there's parts of my life. I like to revisit but there's very few books and things have written that i revisit because i'm like this is how i feel field and sincere heart but this one of a huge one of those times. I wish i did not use that word. I don't think he deserves it. <hes> and i think there are there are aspects aspects of him that are absolutely great but i mean and just real quick like if you look at jim brown's life <hes> you know we're talking about the one domestic violence that's part of it and the there's another part of it that is just to me just looking back as a stack. I mean jim brown goes to syracuse and is a very openly pro proud african american man who was when he goes to searchers. He was told that he couldn't date white women why he was there. He played lacrosse. He was he was a he talked about racism openly to people on campus to other people he was shot in any way about being a proud african american man he goes to the browns late fifties early sixties n._f._l. Still has quotas unspoken of but they were locked in place that you can only have three to five like players on your team's brown railed against that publicly not privately not he did it publicly and helped. He helped change that policy very slowly he goes to hollywood. He's the first first black action hero. He fights for the rights and talks again. Openly about black people not having opportunities in the movies he goes to l._a. Brokers peace between gangs. He probably saved not not in not underestimating in any way he probably save hundreds of thousands. Lots of gang members like this jim brown. We're gonna listen to him. He brokered peace house. You'd have met his house. I can't even look at the jim brown now and i got kenny any recognize him. He doesn't look anything like the guy that's spent years of my life studying and writing about and think of him a certain way way. It's i think what years do they fade. Sometimes they change this for the better or sometimes it seems for the worst brown is just all over. I mean he's hard to really just put into any kind of categories always been that way but especially now i mean this is the picture of him with connie west in the white house. It's just staggering. I mean i can't people listening. I can't have enough how dramatically different that is from thirty forty years ago with jim brown <hes> so this book sort of to me just sort of <hes> it's one of the things it's sort of an example of how we all change enj and how times change and how some things sort of stay the same sort of we we just don't recognize him anymore for <hes> and this is this is examples. I mean it's just crazy so something's happened. Wrote the book but it's this is one of those examples you know the term hero and you did explain in the book. It was a very provocative thing to do in the title but i also thought it was very intellectually compelling at the time that he came out because like i've said for a while now we got a. I don't know what we're gonna. Do is media when jim brown dies because there's no simple encapsulation like there's no paragraph that you can write that spells this out and so at the time of the writing and i also thought it was interesting to me in reading back the book having now read it in about ten years the tone that you took when talking about the things they the the violence against women those things you didn't really you didn't pull any punches like you didn't in spare him. It wasn't as though you wrote it just like we did this one thing but yeah whatever like i thought you were very direct about it but we did treat that as just kind of part of the narrative heritage because that's what we've always done when it came to jim brown and i don't know like jim brown came around now i don't think we would be it would be possible to do that in that way. Which would then be interesting. Because what would we then say about. The unquestionably great works that he did. That's a really really smart. Point and jim brown came around <music> now <hes> he. I don't know what it when he when he arrived on the scene especially when he got to the browns obviously dramatically atika different america and and he was one of those guys that's all all the racism and was like screw this fighting it. He thought it very publicly. <hes> not just with words but with deeds <hes> he started the was later called the black economic union that picture that connectivity with him and then who else cinder <hes> all a bunch of the black star athletes at the time <hes> they were defending muhammad ali decision not to go into the draft that picture <hes> people should go google if they're no no i'm talking about. It's it's a beautiful picture but it's all because of jim brown jim brown organize the whole thing. You've got all the black athletes <hes> there to defend mohammed ali. That is a very powerful thing all the things he did <hes> like that. We're very very powerful but i don't know it's different times. It's hard to just go to draw a straight line <hes> but it he now. I don't think the jim brown with his domestic. Violence history would would be able to exist. You wouldn't have the power to do it which is ironic because <hes> we we didn't give domestic violence and of weight and in some ways we still don't but especially when he was coming of age and the and not giving the domestic violence that weight allowed him to be powerful allow them to be very powerful strong black man and now we do give domestic violence that weight as we should we condemn people who committed it as we should but that also would weaken the jim brown today and it has so when you bring up a really excellent point about how we describe him and how we write about out him and with that what their core graph a couple of graphs would look like it would be all over the place because they were part of him that were absolutely great and there were parts of him that were absolutely dreadful and and then between most of us are like that not to those extremes but most human beings do some some things that they're not proud of and things that are proud of and things that did really well and they don't do well but he was he was those those those extremes on both i mean he was polar opposites and he would do some remarkably brilliant smart aggressive things to help people of color and then he would do things that undermine that but i don't think the jim brown today would have the standing to do that with his domestic violence history so it'd be a completely different. Jim brown l. today but he came along at the perfect time for him came onto the perfect time for sports professional sports for the civil rights movement he was a he was an an athlete who understood how to use his power of an athlete to to better the positions or try to the positions of people of color. He understood that impressed it so it was a different time for him. No question and it's all wrapped up in his refusal. His uncompromising nature's refused to apologize all all of that which leads to the positive things but of course then compounds the negative like i was thinking about this when john newcombe of for pitcher of the dodgers died <hes> not too long ago and i and i read something about him that i did not realize that he had savagely beaten his wife while he was the player he was also a raging alcoholic and but you could find the quotes of him saying i was a drunk in an awful man then and i did awful things and that's not the deepest sentence in the world but that's kinda the sentence that people need to hear and that's something that jim brown could various busy at eighty years old at this point could very easily say as i did some awful things but he has denied all of them and i. I don't think there's a i read probably ninety nine percent of the stories ever written on them spent years that was so much of the research is reading reading stuff about him and about some of these really horrific incidents and i don't if i remember correctly. I don't think i ever saw him. Apologize wants. It's on about any of that. <hes> going back two decades ago when he was he had these issues he was on trial and in cleveland wants for it's for domestic violence for salt <hes> he going back all the way back then. I don't think i ever saw him say you know i'm sorry i shouldn't have done that. I don't it's not it's it's all the strengths he has <hes>. That's is one of his greatest weaknesses and i think it's a weakness of of your person who can't don't have introspection. Look back at your life and if you're a public figure publicly say that what i did was wrong <hes> and when asked about that's that's a you know an inherent weakness to me. You need to have introspection. You're not going to be perfect and you look back at your life. You try to get better and make things better are he. Doesn't he didn't do that. He's unapologetic in every way. Some of that is beneficial. Some of that is really bad. I mean you know you do some of the things he did. You just just say i shouldn't have done that. I'm sorry but he will not do that. I don't think he's ever done that. I may be missing something but i don't think he's ever done that and he never will. I don't think till till his dying day. Will he ever do that. It's just not his nature. He sees it as weakness and more within anything what he wanted to be about was dominating dominating culture dominating the era dominating the football field dominating the locker room dominating women <hes> that was who he was he is he's unapologetic for it. It's one of his weaknesses but that's who he has been his entirely one consistent part of him. We talk about all these different ups and downs. He's different polar opposites. The one consistent part of <hes> is not apologizing and just moving forward and just just bowling people over <hes> so that's who he's always been. I think that's who galway's be juxtaposed against his belief in his own honesty right because that's what he's one of those guys that brags who's honesty's his big thing but the thing he's not to be able to be honest about as himself and one of the things about him that i i always found really interesting was just the how he took what he did on the field and just took it off the field <hes> in every aspect of life like on the field he really enjoyed just beating the crap out of people and people have taken their best shots at him at him keep going and he took just vicious shots. If you look at some of the tapes he would just say i mean it is just so much smaller than him but it would be like four or five guys taking the shots play after play after play <hes> sometimes five for six seven eight shots in one run. It was crazy so his thought was. That's how i'm going to be off the field off the field. Take always wanted. I mean he could be a little thin skinned sometimes but mostly he was tough and he he decided i'm going to be tough and no one's gonna get to me. Knocking apologize not gonna do anything but be tough. That's who i am and and on the field officer work really well off the field of work certain aspects and it didn't work in certain aspects of it was virtual now. I think i was always curious about when you were writing the book. What did you come across in the process. They really had you like wow. I had no idea this until i started doing the research. It was a hollywood stuff. <hes> you know we look at when you look at movies now. There's like people of color that are stars all over the place. <hes> i mean people inherently know this but it was just when when he came about it was just stark the lack of people of color in hollywood not just on screen obviously the screen how racist hollywood still was when he got sure and the the interracial kissy had with record welsh <hes> one of the first it was a huge deal <hes> but it was what was what made it really significant and what made jim brown in hollywood really was just how <hes> he was the first black action hero but he was just the first guy that would openly and constantly talk about race and you know like you talk about race. Now people why race shut up about race <hes> and you're sort of people try to back you down and and keep you from talking about and do and then much much more hostile a he didn't care and he would he would do interviews with with hollywood media and talk about then inequities in hollywood and and the other thing is he made a lot of movies movies <hes> he made a good dozen movies and and one of the things that really surprised me the most that they were all bigtime profitable he made movies and people went to see and people went to watch them a lot of people did and they were profits while he's able to keep making taking them he was able to just would people really liked him. They liked what he wasn't screaming like his personality like they use a tough guy <hes> so that the hollywood part of it really really surprised me wasn't anything because i knew he was in holland. I didn't know what to that extent. I didn't know he was he was that well liked by particularly african american movie goers. I didn't know any of that and that really really stunned me because there was very extensive so i didn't i didn't i didn't i know about any of that. I mean some of our know about a lot of it and he was. He was very very powerful player in hollywood. It's done you know the hollywood. Stuff is tied to an n._f._l. Story story that's out now with andrew luck retiring suddenly as he did which was shocking but can you give people perspective that you got into in the book of just how shocking days it was to be like hey man. I'm over here making dirty dozen. I'm going to stay if you if you take andrew luck and multiply. I buy like a thousand. That's what it was in the n._f._l. Itself in the league itself people were <hes> just absolutely stunned around. He was dominating the league. He was young. He had at least another five years. No one saw it coming. You didn't really tell anyone about a really he didn't tell the browns about until very late <hes> and he was he was as dominant force in the history of the league as you'll ever i see and he left at the at the very height of it and he went and when he retired he's shooting the dirty dozen the movie and he's standing in. There's the scene of him when he's talking about retirement or any standing from this prop tank and he's talking about i don't need. I don't need football. I got the m- i save up my money honey. This is bigger. I can have more influence doing this and at the time that wasn't really people thought that was just dumb. Why are you leaving. The sport. It wasn't football wasn't obviously what it is now but it was still very influential and the way he was dominating it so much people i thought going to the movies like that was stupid and of course he was because he's a very smart guy. He was to head of people he saw how he used his influence in football to change things and to draw attention to race relations. He thought he could do the same in hollywood bigger scale and he was also ahead of his time in terms of the physicality the toll on his body he he was before people were even talking about this stuff talking about concussions head injuries the long term effects x of football and he was just didn't wanna do it anymore and that way it was a lotta as the head of his time but that way also have time he understood and studied but it did to the body he he just really took it to heart and just said i'm gonna make movies and at the time it was just i mean what what happened to andrew luck. Now is nothing compared to then. It was a huge national story than all across every aspect of the culture from news to sports to hollywood to everything there was a monumental thing what waiting to and if people thought that andrew luck they were entitled to andrew luck entertaining them. God knows what they thought. They were entitled to from jim braille. I gotta say i mean i. I'm really shocked anymore. I'm sure you're not either like we've seen a lot of stuff. The entitlement people have towards look just just like that. He just done me. I know i shouldn't be you know and i know i shouldn't be stunned. I still like people blowing him. People saying think on. I'll just be blunt. Usually i see that with african-american athletes how people think they own them right this is this is one of the first time i saw with a white f. and and it was still i've seen it before title spill stunning just watch people people think they have some sort of control or should have some sort of control over the life of an athlete like you watch them and you see them on sunday something you think you have you control them and they don't do what you want then. They're mad at you that i mean. If you really just thinking about that in a vacuum it's really unbelievable arrogance stupid but that's a lot of people think <hes> and brown again when he when he did it they were there. Were a lot of really the angry fans <hes> you can imagine some of the things they were saying about brown and the and and he didn't care and he just walked away he didn't care and he you know in retrospect he still considered by a lot of people the best player of all time and he's still has other marks in the culture and society and history. He obviously made the right decision because he wanted to do his body but you also made really services because he had an impact on multiple fronts he wasn't he never saw himself as just as a football player so and so for someone that can change or talk about changing things and he's able to do that in hollywood too so in the end. It was a smart decision eight. Oh i kind kind of wrap this up. I want to at first. My thought was asked questions so they would do. We say about jim brown now but i wonder if the ultimate lesson is we gotta learn to say more things about people pull because we were like we're not going to get that core paragraph. That explains what he is like this. This is a guy who in retrospect when it comes time to sum this all love is going to be like hey go ahead and eat. This is my take off really really good point and i think the way to answer that is <hes> <hes> in our profession sometimes nuances missing <hes> sometimes we depth dismissing with brown. You're going to have to sort of say some really uncomfortable things while pointing out all the great things they're going to be multiple fronts for to write about with him and have been for decades they will and they will continue to be that way he will he. He hoped defined national football league. He helped define what you mentioned a black actor yup to find those things he also helped <hes> define in a lot of ways or point out our weakness when it comes to addressing domestic violence. I think that's changed a lot. So now we're armed especially men with the sensibilities so when you look at his legacy sensibilities that we didn't have twenty years ago we have now it will cast his is legacy in a completely different light and they won't be very very good things and very very bad things and your point is really well taken because that that's okay i mean and not the domestic violence for obvious isn't okay but are addressing the weaknesses of human beings is what kind of what you should do when when you're doing these types of evaluations of a guy i mean this is this is how you address a multidimensional person because most people that way multidimensional he's very much that way so it's okay to talk talk about an encouraging talk about his weaknesses because humanizes amin humanizes us <hes> but it it. That's gonna be his legacies legs. He's gonna be very very complicated and and someone's going to be very ugly and somebody's gonna be really remarkable but this is who he is. He's always been dan. This is jim brown this is this is the guy who helped define a league of define the sixties and seventies of hollywood <hes> help broker peace between gangs help do all these different things and also had this really ugly side so all of that's going to be accounted for. We'll all be talking about that forever. All of it comes into play and that's where it should that is mike freeman. Check them out at bleacher report.

"This is mornings with Kale. Fueled by Great Western petroleum only thirteen ten KFI Colorado joins other states today moving a very cautiously very meticulously into a phased reopening of the economy. We have a governor. Jared Pulisic safer at home edict going into effect today as we do well counties safer at work guidelines and it's interesting because we're gonNA work through this because you probably not g scale. They're totally different. They're really not totally different. And in fact what seems to separate them as a phase two reopening of a retail you so called non essential businesses throughout the state separated by about four days. But I'll get into that. But meanwhile there was a letter that was sent to the Weld County commissioners by a number of health executives throughout northern Colorado. They got that letter on Saturday. And that's sparked some conversations and some interchanges between the Weld County commissioners and several of these northern Colorado health executives. Meanwhile you had Weld County Commissioner chairman. Mike Freeman responding to inquiries from Greeley Trib just yesterday headline out of the Greeley Trib piece by Trevor Read. Where all working together Weld County? Commission chairman response the letter from local health care leaders and Well County Commissioner Scott. James will respond as well when he joins us this morning at eight. Oh Five Butt Weld County Commission chairman. Mike Freeman in response to that letter said Sunday that county leaders and healthcare leaders are continuing to work closely to keep county residents safe as Cova nineteen continues to spread on Saturday. Six Northern Colorado healthcare leaders sent a letter to the Weld County Commissioners in response to their safer at work guidelines will paraphrase that letter courtesy of Trevor read in the Greeley trip in the letter. The healthcare leaders say they're concerned about the county's safer at work a- guidelines guidelines don't direct businesses to open and that is just of utmost importance. It can't be over emphasized because as many of the Weld County commissioners has have said publicly. They're not reopening businesses in Weld County. Because they never closed businesses to begin with all they've done is issued guidelines very similar to the guidelines that we're seeing in governor. Jared Pola says a safer at home initiative all the guidelines that we know in order to flatten the curve stop the spread of Cova nineteen so the guidelines do not direct once again. I'm talking about weld. County safer at work guidelines direct. Any business to open. Instead they give a set of recommendations similar to practices at essential businesses that have stayed open through the states. Stay at home order. Which again expired. Yesterday as the governor safer at home order goes into effect today to open business too soon and without a unified plan could spell disaster for local healthcare systems northern Colorado health care leaders warned in this letter the resulting deaths. The letter said we'll be tragic. The rezoning strain on healthcare. We'll be overwhelming if we open too soon and the virus spikes to we have enough healthcare workforce staff our facilities to staff The alternate care sites housing. Those who are ill enough equipment to support. The Patients Freeman for his part Chairman of the Board of Weld County. Commissioners said he didn't disagree with any parts of the letter repeating once again. The county government officials aren't opening any businesses just as they did not close them. The guidelines are simply there for business owners who will open up as a Colorado enters it. Safer home face today. Some retailers will be allowed to reopen Monday for curbside pickup opening further to limited numbers of in-store customers on Friday as long as the distancing followed Freeman said that some businesses may reopen in a way. That don't follow statewide public health orders. But that enforcement isn't possible against our against or cross. I should say Rural Weld County. Interesting Freudian slip. Their enforcement against I think there are a number of businesses especially in these smaller. Towns said Board of Weld County. Commissioner Chairman Mike Freeman that are going to reopen anyway and there is no way there is absolutely no way that we can enforce or be out in four thousand square miles and see what's going on in all these communities health care leaders in this letter pointed to weld's high case rates and number of deaths as a reason to follow unified guidelines letter states in our hospitals. We have never before seen numbers of patients relying on ventilators to stay alive. We have additional covert nineteen hospitalized patients. All of whom could de compensate very quickly to then later level care or death. All of whom are indeed facing weeks of recovery Freeman. Trevor read that the greeter. Excuse me yes trevor. Read out the Greeley trip that the commissioners have been regularly briefed on such situations. He went on to say we know what the concern is but that being said we got to be realistic. And again it bears repeating the safer were guidelines are simply guidelines not not a mandate that you as a business owner must reopen. Your Business. That's your discretion. That's a decision for you to make freemen went on to say we're going to need to be smart. We're going to need to use common sense. Healthcare leaders in the letter asked the Commissioner to reconsider that safer work plan when county. Commissioner Steve Marino spoke at length with Karston one of the One of the healthcare executives that signed the letter spoke with Karston on Sunday morning according to Freeman. My understanding is That while County Commissioner Scott James who will join us at eight Oh five. This morning had a similar conversation with another healthcare executive but according to Freeman banking that conversation that he had it's very important to make sure that healthcare and government leaders are on the same page. Freemen went on to say this is not as it's being painted in many sectors of local media. This is not an adversarial position. We're in this together. We're all working together. Freeman for his. His part said. He's frustrated by the mixed signals. Coming from the governor's office as salons and Tattoo. Parlors are set to open Friday. Though general distancing social distancing of at least six feet is still recommend it. Everything is about social distancing. He said I don't know that I've ever seen any six foot. Needles are how you can cut my hair and say stay six feet away. But that's what's in his referring to governor jared police. That's what's in his new orders. That are coming out so I think we just need to continue to follow guidelines and try to keep people safe. Such businesses will be required to follow strict safety guidelines. According to state official so far those guidelines do not appear to have been publicly released. What's that GonNa look like particularly in in in a tattoo parlor? Spa is a such A. Let's see Freeman said county. Officials will continue to work on preventing the spread of the virus. Reminding folks to practice physical distancing. Stay home if you're sick or at risk and use common sense. He concluded in this interview with Trevor read in the Greeley trip. We all learned to wash our hands from the time. We're five years old so we need to continue to use commonsense sense. Let's get through this thing and keep everybody safe and still be able to figure out a way to operate businesses in a safe manner. But here's where there's a little bit of a hitch in the giddy up because though The Weld County Commissioners did issue that safer at work policy just last Thursday. You have the city of Greeley and the city of Evans exercising their right to choose and declaring their support for the safer at home policies by the way we are going to check in with Greeley Mayor John Gates this morning about that at eight.

All right so as the state transitions from the stay at home. Order which lapsed yesterday to be replaced by the statewide does safer at home. Order issued by Governor Jared Polis. Well everything is not as easy as it might seem this as the weld. County commissioners just last Thursday in tandem working with Dr Mark Wallace at the Weld Department of Public Health and environment issued their safer at work suggestions guidelines. So we've got A statewide order. We've got a county guidelines but even within counties well there isn't agreement this as the city of Greeley and Evans have opted to follow the safer at home guidelines as opposed to the safer at work guidelines. So how is this all going to look well? In general this according to a piece by Kevin Dugan out of the Fort Collins Colorado and even with the loosening of restrictions to some degree gatherings are still limited to ten people or less social distance. Things still very much a reality. You gotta stay six feet apart. Mass should be worn in public places and businesses at risk populations such as people sixty five years of age or older those with compromised immune systems underlying medical conditions. Should still say home. Stay home except except for essential errands. Now Governor Jerry. Police and state health officials have laid out a schedule for reopening businesses. And I just want to because you're probably feeling a little bit whip side by everything that you've heard how the Safer at home and the Safer Work. A guideline suggestions. differ. Yeah THEY DO DIFFER. But they are fundamentally the same. It's just a matter of timing. We'll calibrate that this morning and again it's not a mandate. These are not enforceable orders as the governor readily admits. Now I would condone The thinking that you still want to exercise some good old-fashioned common sense and do what you need to do as cove in nineteen. It's still very much with us again. It these are not mandates. It's your decision in Weld County as a business owner if you want to reopen your businesses your business using all the guidelines that you are so well aware of because his Weld County Commission chair. Mike Freeman said. How can we reopen businesses that we never closed to begin with paraphrasing there but you get the drift so under pulses order? Today retail stores considered nonessential under the stay at home order can indeed began curbside pickup services. Real Estate Showings may resume but open still not allowed. Friday may first retail and other non essential business services. Just love how we're picking winners and losers. There may open for in person interaction if implementing mandatory practices for their type of business. What the heck does that mean and see? That's the problem that we are dealing with as that. We have these over arching guidelines but when it comes to specifics well on your own. Aren't you personal services? Such as hair salons may open but must follow. Mandatory safety practices elected medical and dental services may resume with a safety restrictions. Monday fourth commercial offices may open but under restrictions. Monday may fourth so when you look at the difference and I understand that a week makes a difference again at that in terms of being able to effectively track the true number of those infected with cove nineteen in Colorado. I understand that but again that seems to be just another difference between the safer at work versus safer at home in which the safer work says. Yeah as a business owner if you're doing things the right way here the guidelines to follow. Here's what you need to know. It's up to you in a free and fair open market economy to utilize the necessary precautions. Make sure they're followed. Make sure their practice and reopen your reopened. Your Business in effect today in Weld County. But what we're talking about here is a matter of seven days. That's why I keep saying all of the precautionary steps when you take a look at the safer at home versus the safer at work. Principles are in full effect. All right to be continued as seven thirty.

They close it down last evening saying that that will be closed for a week. And that one's one that none of us were even thinking about. You've got the Latino planning really as well but No issues there at least have come to light so We'll keep fingers crossed but it's In the midst of again the larger scale issues related to the food production across the country that were battling Corolla virus in in production facilities throughout right.

B S Troy The ongoing tussle enter into a new phase throughout the state of course as a governor Jerry. Police's safer at home guidelines. Go into effect today. This has the stay at home order expired yesterday Weld County of course Just last Thursday coming out with their safer at work guidelines apparently a letter and thank you very much for passing that along. Better from a number of Healthcare executives northern Colorado went out over the weekend Saturday. I believe it was To the Weld County Commissioners and. Let's just say well. The conversations continue and they probably will continue for awhile especially given that. It's not just weld county. That is dealing with the changes. That come from the governor's safer at home proposal as you see most of the Denver Metro area extending stay at home orders through the League again and into next week as opposed to Moving towards an idea. Such as what Well County has elected to do one of the things that stands out is that we're talking about ongoing processes and how to best time for those and in the midst of this pandemic. Nobody knows really the right answers. On how best to time for any of those and so it becomes a rating mess of rules and regulations that nobody really is prepared for Even with the governor's announcements last week. His safer at home plans that the items that are listed on it didn't come out until six o'clock or until six hours after the stay at home order effectively was done. So you've got plenty of issues that are out there and everything moves quick and at a point where patients may be better. And that's going to be something that we'll have to really keep an eye on Brighton Being one of those communities that's got right in the middle of it because they are partially in atoms and partially in weld county so something across the street from One business may open the other. One may not have voiced. You voiced that concern Last week when we were talking about the safer at home versus the Safer at work policies that we could well see kind of a patchwork quilt effect. Indeed that's what we are seeing within weld county. The size of the city of Greeley city of Evans have opted To follow these safer at home guidelines one of the things that you're always on in crisis management is to speak with one voice and that debate right now is whose voices that that should be speaking Is it the counties? Is it the governor? Is it the federal government? And because of the fact that you wind up with these patchwork of rules is a prime example of Of why you need to be speaking with one voice. You need to have one policy in place to try encounter confusion and even liquor stay at home orders and I know that the Weld County commissioners are on the process of claiming that the government the governor's specifically picking winners and losers against this confusion. There but at least you know you're you're getting up point where you can understand where the process lives and there was a coherent point being made about. Stay at home orders going forward. Everybody was operating under the same rules as it pertains to individuals. That Kennedy's all of it again. You may not like how it was implemented. But they're least were the rules in place and it was a plan. There was some sense playwright. And what's interesting to me troy and we're going to talk with. Well County Commissioner Scott James One of the recipients of that letter that came out from those northern Colorado healthcare executives on Saturday but once interesting is what I keep hearing over and over again is that they don't disagree in principle with Governor Jared practice. It's more a matter of our police. I should say governor Jerry Police. It's more a matter of how it's put into practice and I would just like anybody I would like to know to why the selections of Certain retail stores were allowed and others were not. I'm going to assume that as much as anything. It was the matter spacing when you're talking. Smaller retailer has one love in Fort Collins and Loveland just as a point to bring up may sell some of the same things that Walmart sells in terms of cleaning supplies and the like stores are much smaller square footage. But you know what I've noticed I mean it's not like we're protected by magic bubble in the big box So called essential stores. Because what I've noticed when I have ventured out is the number of people it's like. Have you been living under a rock for the past six weeks because people that almost brush right by you and that's a whole `nother matter that personally your tate's me greatly that it's a general view of well? I need to worry about this. And it's a well. I have my right to go out. And do you know the the problem is starting acting air starting posing on other people's rights as because my rights end where your rights begin bottom line especially in a time code nineteen exactly and and too? Many people aren't remembering that and too many people aren't taking that into consideration. And you know it it. It's just like this argument over whether you should wear a mask or not. Well I got wondering amass because it's not going to be do anything to protect me. It's not about protecting you right now. It's about protecting others from you because you could be a symptomatic as thirty percent of the folks are that are walking around with covert nineteen. No they don't always a pleasure always a great discussion. Look forward to continuing it with you tomorrow. Thanks so much and be well. Thanks Gail Seven fifty three now thirteen ten KFI K.

April 21

"In the good Tuesday morning northern Colorado. Thanks for joining us here on. Noko now presented by PDC ENERGY. Where community truly does matter. We're excited to be with you again. As we are every weekday from nine to ten I am Tanner Schwinn. Mica Patrick Dune the production. We appreciate him doing some overtime. Of course he is the producer for mornings with Gail. That program runs from six to nine every morning. So if if you're looking for more news on cove in nineteen and and more fun interviews and interviews with experts. He tuned into that show every weekday from six to nine. Obviously we've got some big news coming out yesterday that hey in do. I get to say that I was right on this. They are repealing The stay at home order or just letting it. And as it rolls off April Twenty-seventh we need to figure out how to run the marathon. Now that we've run the sprint said Governor Police yesterday this coming OUTTA CPR dot org. It was it was an interesting. It was an interesting conversation. I suppose. An interesting Press conference with Governor Police yesterday. Obviously a lot of good things were said but One of the quotes stands out as I hate to break it to you but the easy part was the sprint. Now we've got the marathon of course Governor Polish is talking about how we absolutely do need to get up and get the economy rolling again but at the same side. We still need to be able to take these necessary precautions. And take these social distancing and continue to wear the mask but They article continues poll. Speaking from the governor's mansion in Denver said that the state isn't able to test enough and investigate confirmed positive cases to relax social distancing very much yet cardo still having trouble getting supplies he said and he. I mean he can dinner. I it's safer at home is going to be the new slogan for the next wave of what we do here with the covert nineteen changes so safer at home will be The new catchphrase. You'RE GONNA start to see everybody Talk about and and all those elected officials discuss whereas they touch on cove in nineteen. And how things will continue to roll. But I know as we've been talking about for quite some time that People are ready to get back to work. And this is what this is going to allow Allow people to do at least some people to do Poll says we can't lose sight of the fact that our job isn't finished. Your job isn't finished. Not by a long shot hole as he outlined the new rules for businesses that would maintain level of social distancing that are much higher than normal but that are greatly relaxed from the way the state has operated for nearly a month He goes on retail curbside. Delivery eighty retail. That wants to do that. That starts immediately. April twenty-seventh police at other retail would be allowed to open may first with some restrictions. So we're going to see some stores open backup some of those retail stores. Where they can they can deliver you believe and we'll We'll talk with tobacco. Vail her news and sports structure. But does that mean that You can catch right outside to we'll We'LL CHECK IN. On all that large workplaces starting may fourth will be allowed to open at fifty percent capacity and are advised. F- symptoms and temperature checks for workers as they arrive Police at his own goals his own goal for bars. Restaurants and clubs to reopen would be mid made but that he'd have to wait for data on the effects of other changes to make those decisions so We know that this disease this This Corona virus will be with us That is not something that that has been debated by any means but And this was a little bit of a surprise that came out this early. I guess to me. No we're only Six days away now. He did it a week. Early but One of the things that they were really one of the drums that they were beating was the fact that they thought that we needed to have a vaccine. Or some sort of Some sort of preventative care for Cova. Nineteen that just didn't happen and he police governor polls accepted that in. That was a little bit of a surprise. I thought that that would be though the thing that would hold Hold up any social distancing relaxing or any Stay at home measures. That might be the one area that could hold things up but it ends up not being the case As of Monday as we talked with yesterday and we'll get the updated numbers today but Colorado head over ten thousand cases with nearly two thousand hospitalized. So this is a Colorado has definitely been impacted by this. We've stuck to it. We've got another week now. It's going to be interesting to see how people handle this this upcoming week because I would have to imagine their thought processes will if it's done on Monday. What is one extra day of going out going to do what it? Why can't we just get a head start on us? Jump Start and so. I'm sure that is a thought process from for many people but the the thing that this does. Four local businesses is that it can give management and it can give those decision makers time to get a plan of action. Put into place. How is this going to look in terms of how they're operating how our business is going to be operating Is it going to be full capacity? I if you can wear a mask we'd be wearing a mask will you be making it down Mandatory for employees to wear masks. We'll you do it in shifts. There's a lot of questions in and there's not one uniform answer for everybody. There's just not because every business is so different that there is not just one standard answer and that's why the week of preparation will be good. It's this is presented by P D C Energy. Were community truly does matter. We're going through. What the new orders will be what things are going to look like in the matter of mere weeks We'll talk to our coverdale coming up next. We'll also catch up with Weld County Commissioner chairman. Mike Freeman I know. He's he's been talking a lot about this and voicing his his thoughts on some of these matters and wanted to get him on and get his take on the State of Weld County and how what what will county is. GonNa look like Really really I mean the big news yesterday right that that it was it was so bizarre. Was that oil was under a dollar. A trading at under a dollar A. Yeah and that's what is it doesn't make any sense right and it doesn't make any sense to a Lotta people and that is a big time community impact. When we I mean we know the oilfield has a great role in Weld County With the money that is brought in and the jobs that are created and this is troublesome to see that so this is why. I know that this is part of the reason that the governments are starting to reopen things and starting to get things going because the economy at this point. We're starting to see things that we've never seen before and when that happens that can be cause for concern And this is look I again. I I know it's probably not a real popular opinion but I think that governor polls has done He he didn't extend the state home order that a lot of people were probably anticipating him doing the April twenty-sixth deadline. I think that he's handled this at a pretty respectable way in a pretty respectable position. Now the the questions that are GonNa roll in now are also going to really impact. His handling and how things are going to be looked at with the money. That's coming in the federal funds where those going. What are they actually getting distributed to small businesses? Where does this stay at? Look I? That's that's going to be conversations. Those are going to be conversations for down the line but as of now you know. I think that we've got in got out of this. Relatively quickly and now the safer at home guidelines are going to take place and so just a quick bullet list. No gatherings of ten or more schools will be to remain closed. Bars and restaurants will be to remain closed medical and dental services resume with precautions offices. Fifty percent open with strict precautions There's obviously like those guidelines I talked about and and the most important thing and this is this is where he he spoke on this. I believe it was last Friday and I could kind of see. The writing on the wall here is when he talked about the vulnerable population and and them needing to stay at home. Because that's he started set those guidelines and it seemed to me to be the hint that they're going to start to open up to the greater number of people the greater population and allow More people to get back to work and get back out there and start rolling but I do want to. I want to continue to push and I will continue to push in and get that out. There is that just because a stay at home order has lifted does not mean that the disease is just gone. And the and I actually saw from Ben Shapiro mentioned this that just because the curvature flattening that doesn't mean the number of people who are going to get infected with cove nineteen is lower. That's not what that means. And I think there's a misconception out there win that curve flattens a means that not as many people are getting it all at once and that was the whole goal that was the was so that our Our hospitals our healthcare system did not get overrun and mission accomplished so far and we will see what that looks like on the other side but so far the stay at home. Order and the social distancing measures are hospitals did not get over on In fact that they've they've operated relatively smoothly for all things considered and worked still going to see this. This is still going to be something we live with. This is still going to be something that is among us and we still need to take those necessary precautions. I want to get your thoughts on whether Well on on anything. If you WANNA to me about how you see your business opening backup next week. Nine seven three three thirteen ten nine seven three five thirty thirteen ten or you can text in to the KFI text line at three one nine nine six three one nine nine six. We'll take a break here when we come back. We'll talk with our news and sports director Troy Coverdale for the latest on cove in nineteen the sports scene and beyond. We're here with you thirteen ten. Kfi In thirteen ten K. dot com get. Your Day started right with up-to-date news weather and sports mornings with Gail six. Am to nine. Am Weekdays on Thirteen Ten KFI K? Nine twenty time here on no co now. Thanks for joining us on this Tuesday morning. I'm tanner swint and again those restrictions that we kind of anticipated starting to roll off doing that. Now we've got some details on how governor police is going to reopen the state and joining me. Now up on hotline. Our News and sports director Troy Coverdale Troy. Was there anything in the press conference yesterday. That Kant you off Guard not necessarily I really felt that he handled about as well as could be expected given the situation. I think what maybe people may view. As surprise above everything was that it does hold different The the initial plans which were for the need for testing On a much larger scale than we currently have to take place for the four those regulations to come off and that testing kind of got pushed to the side As we go forward I think that that's the the real interesting part of this as we Keep an eye on this now. Going into the taking down of the stay at home order. Yeah and I think that this may have some people off. Guard that Governor police a little. I don't WANNA say aggressive but more on the aggressive front and getting the economy up and going he's seeing the impact. This is having on on the entire state. This is not just Colorado even places that that haven't gotten as much conversation. Georgia comes to mind the announcement yesterday thereby their governor Brian Kemp and they're going to in get themselves involved in an aggressive resumption of the economy a very aggressive one in some ways and they're similar in terms of what was announced yesterday though. Georgia will allow for a few more things than what Colorado well restaurants in bars reopening comes to mind so we'll have to keep an eye on just how that plays out not just here in Colorado but in other locations. This is what you get with. The governor's being in charge and not be federal government being in charge of when the stay at home orders. Come off the boards right but it does make sense as this conversations have been had time and time again. Wyoming's different than New York and Colorado the different than Texas and so on and so forth Really kind of surprised. Pleased with just how? I think that we talked about the him rolling these off kind of the way they were put on. It seems like he rolled off maybe two two phases as he's leading the large companies Go back to fifty percent of their normal of their normal workload But Troy you mentioned the restaurants and bars. It's looking like it could be another couple of weeks before Those start to even have the consideration of opening and when they do More likely than not going to see some strict regulations put into place there a couple of things that will keep an eye on in. That is what does that do for in terms of the unemployment aspect of things As PEOPLE GET REHIRED BACK. Are they going to be rehired back here in this two week? Stretch you're going to have some redesign going on at restaurants you're going to have some maybe new training that needs to take place in the restaurant business as well because of what we're going through with corona virus and so at that point will we start to see some of that The the unemployment side of tail off as people get back to work to set up for that stretch. Two weeks down the road where the restaurants bars might reopen. And there's the key phrase to it is might. We don't know for sure that that will be how things play out bought. That's what we hope will play out and so do the business owners hedge their bets and elect to go ahead and start to rehire their employees. Or do they wait and see what exactly is going to take place in two weeks down. The line will and if governor stays true to is Guidelines and how he's been announcing these probably should see some sort of announcement in a week or ten days with with when it comes to the restaurants as he gave a week's notice on the state home order extent are not happening anymore troy. That's the word I'm looking for there but So should be another week before we see something on that front but troy. This is in the wake of us. Hearing about painter health having to fruit to throw some furloughs out there is quite a few hospitals are starting to furlough some people in the non cove related areas. How much of this is tied to folks not wanting to tie up the emergency rooms? All of our discussion about what emergency rooms and hospitals were having to deal with in terms of covert. And how many things that were taking place. We already knew elective surgeries. Were not taking place. They were barred by these orders that the governor has put in place. That's not changing just yet but we will probably start to see that begin to take place again because of the fact that you are seeing hospital space now be different than what was originally forecast. And that's where the furloughs come in and for those who have been paying attention the fertilizer because of other hospital areas where those surgeries aren't taking place and so it's not a necessity to keep those people employed for doing the for doing that work. It's a very fluid time. And and it will be intriguing to watch and see just how fluid even those furloughs may become a with moving forward as the elective surgeries become again. A part of what could take place on a day to day basis the economic recovery. This is going to be fascinating to watch and I know. Hopefully for a lot of people is that it's going to be faster than expected when when it comes to reopening of a lot of things troy but yesterday we saw something crazy happened with the oil prices and and. I know that there's just a lot of uncertainty right now. One of the things at play with oil prices going negative yesterday. Of course we're coming in on the end of a month and that's where storage wasn't issue or is an issue is how this plays because People are needing that delivery of or have to have the delivery of their oil that they have already purchased in so storage. Wise is an issue because during the stretch where Russia and the Saudis specifically. Were haggling over. Just what their oil prices per barrel we're going to be the. Us government was increasing. What it held in Strategic Reserve so now we find ourselves with very limited reserve areas. And that's a big part of why those prices yesterday when under the under the even mark because there's just no storage now at this point and the companies have too much oil and not the storage to put it in for themselves. That's going to be an issue. Not just you know coming up on. May but that's going to be an issue when we get to the tail end of May and look towards the June contracts and how they play out and where storage may be. It's going to be an interesting watch. No doubt yeah it is as we talk with our news and sports director Troy Cova sale in and if you are wondering it is back up in the positives today. Just a lot of people impacted by that here in northern Colorado and again troy. Think that's going to be the the issue here is how Hainault is. Some businesses are going to be up and rolling. And how long is this economic recovery? Going to take? How long are these guidelines going to stay in place? Did Governor polls indicate? Did you get anything from that? Press Conference yesterday that wind. Will we be able to start to have these large gatherings people anxiously looking forward to the stampede? Cheyenne Frontier Days of those big public gatherings that happened over the summer. We're going to learn more about that in a couple of weeks when we start talking about the restaurants and bars again as well because that would be the point where they have another two weeks worth of trending to get an idea how people are doing with the social distancing and with wearing masks in public and all of the factors that we are basically on our own in terms of responsibility to take care of now and we will be keeping an eye on that. I do know one event that will have an announcement coming up at the top of the hour this morning. That won't be taking place and I won't tease that. Because of the fact that that announcement was embargoed but you know the the fact remains that still an area of uncertainty for any event that comes up during the summer. That we look towards. Yeah there I mean. That's that's where a lot of people are right now with running those and unfortunately those big events take a lot of planning and preparation so. I know a lot of people are waiting on that troy we. We've been talking in really the deadline that are not deadline rather but the date or time period that we can point to is saying things probably will start to get open back up is maybe mid June. Is that still where you're you're landing? That is kind of where I'm looking towards absolutely Because of the fact that we are still looking at so much of a wait and see approach in terms of our trending and I think that that's what everybody is going to be doing for probably another six weeks. Wait and see. It's an unfortunate way to have to look at things but that's where we are right now given the adventure that this has been talking about news and Sports Director Troy Coverdale and Troy last question for you here. I wanted to see what you've been hearing with this economic recovery. The the terminology that I had been hearing was the possibility of of kind of being like a slingshot. This disease holding us down and then as soon as we start to roll these off that that with the great state that the economy was in. Maybe to see a significant resurgence in a hurry but the longer this drew on no the more of an impact it made on people. What are the experts saying that you've been hearing? And what are the reports are that you've been hearing well and that's going to be a huge question and what I've been hearing really does vary. I've put most of my faith in this discussion into what we saw. Take place following the nineteen eighteen Spanish flu and the big thing that stood out in many ways that communities that held onto their health orders for longer actually have the rebounds when they did reopen. And so we get back to the argument of. When's too soon and wants to late and I don't know that anybody has a good handle on that answer other than looking back at history at this point so I'm hearing from both sides that it's going to be this and it's going to be that and I don't have a good handle on it and that's because everybody really for the most part doesn't have a good handle on it themselves and yeah it's it's it's trying times interesting. Time whatever adjective you want to use? Troy appreciate your time as always. We'll catch up to you later. Thanks Troy Coverdale News and sports director here at thirteen ten KFI. And and yeah. I mean I know. People are watching those oil prices very closely. I know people are are anxiously. Awaiting the arrival of J. B. S. Up and going again for the trucking industry for the agricultural industry There's a lot of people I mean. That's not even mentioned the restaurant industry Who I know I mean. I know that they were Hoping and and really looking forward to possibly reopening or or at least having some measures relaxed And I know that they're going to be no trying for another couple of weeks here and so Again continue to support those local businesses.

I M Tanner Schwinn Makiko Patrick. During the production work and again encouraging news the the restrictions stayed home order going to expire on Sunday. And we can start to take the necessary steps to Reopen Weld County Northern Colorado and. We're very much looking forward to that and continuing to To push to get our economy back to where it was as I was mentioning we were. We were rolling and and I know this was a major setback but I look forward to see how everybody bounces back. If you have a plan of action that you want to let us know about feel free to text into the Cave Creek text line. Three one nine six three one nine nine six joining me now on the hotline very excited to have him as well Commissioner Chairman Mike Freeman Commissioner. It was encouraging news. Coming out of the State Office yesterday Janner. It certainly wasn't charging news. I mean I think that I think we knew that we needed to get to this point. I think we're glad that we're finally to the spot where we can start reopening businesses. Um You know at the economic the Economic Situation Moran on. Obviously there's still a health issue. We've got to continue to go forward. do things in a safe manner do things Follow your physical distancing. Do those kind of things but I think that I think what we're we were at this point a while ago. And we're certainly ready to be in this position now because it seems to me that if you can figure out how to Run Grocery stores and pharmacies and Walmart and all these other things liquor stores In a safe manner other businesses can also do the same thing following those same kind of deals and I think it's time to quit picking and choosing winners which businesses can survive in which ones can't and we need to get back to the spot where we're letting everybody have the chance to survive. We Know Mike. I think quite frankly. I'm not sure if that stayed home. Order would have been extended how much people would have complied with it. Well I think I think that was the problem. I think the I think the telling thing from the governor yesterday when he was talking about his stay at home order he essentially says it was an order. That was unenforceable in the first place. Which to me. It's more it's more of a kind of pound your chest and try to get people to do the right thing and maybe we realized that the way to get people to do right thing is realize give them the opportunity to do the right thing and they will do that without being an order being more of this safer and only when you need to do the right things and if you're in a vulnerable situation if you're elderly if you have pre existing conditions then you need to be even more careful and probably continue to stay home but let the people in the businesses Do what we're great outing. Well County and that's individual choices and make decisions that make sense for all of our citizens who you know and I think that fire that I mean I can hear from you and I know there's a lot of business owners of that same fire that gives me hope that as we roll things off the we're gonNA come back. We're GONNA come back very strong. I believe we will. I believe we will come back. Very strong I think the longer we stayed in this the more difficult it was going to be to come back I think if we would have gone another two weeks or another month or whatever with with the orders that we were in before it would have been maybe a lot of places impossible for some business to come back but I think where we're at now. We have the ability to come back strong. And I very much look forward to hearing law county talking with welcoming Commissioner Mike Freeman and and we're going to get into the carries act here in just a moment but Mike first of all. How are things going to open up with this? First wave of openings with government buildings so that's a lot of questions about that people have will the DMV start. Open our operations going to look at the at the county level. Well at the county level is you know We pretty much been Most things still open just lobbies close. So we're going to be doing the same thing we're going to be slowly opening lobbies in a way that you know. It's not going to go back to full capacity. You know. Maybe you've still got to be able to have the physical distancing so you're going to be doing the same kind of thing too where maybe I think. A reasonable place to look at it in the beginning is fifty percent capacity. So you're gonNA start to allow some people back into DMV but you're not gonNA have lobby packed like it used to be at one time you're going to you know you're going to set up so that we can do the things that keep employees safe and keep citizens safe and still let them be able to to do the things that they need to do to be successful and while county. Do you see the long-term changes getting sticking with the DMV in operations like that with limiting the number of people in their DC. This being by long-term I mean. I'm talking months possibly a year until vaccines found or do you believe that this is going to be until all the restrictions are rolled off and and then large public gatherings can start to take place again. Well I think we need to just take it one step at a time. I mean I think we start to open things up slowly. We see we gotta have. We're still have to pay attention to the data you know as we see. Numbers increased dramatically. You'RE GONNA have to relook what you're doing. I mean I think there isn't any doubt that is you. Start to open things up. You're going to probably see a little bit. You're going to see some more cases you are. But but that's okay because I think at the end of the day you gotTa Balance. There's a balance here between Making sure that absolutely nobody gets sick and factoring in what those risks are and figuring that out just as we've done with everything else you know throughout this country. I mean one of the things that we talked about it. You know if you WANNA stop all traffic accidents. You set the speed limit everywhere. Five miles an hour. Well okay but that makes absolutely no sense. You've got to balance the risk with where you're out on the other side of that and I think that's where we're going to be going forward. You're going to be balancing the risk. You're continuing to look at what we need to do. And I think you're slowly going to open things back up more and more. I don't know if that's a month out or two months or three months out but I am not willing to talk about a new normal. I think at some point. We're going to be back to normal. Well into your point Mike. The the hospitals have not been overflowed like the like that many were expecting to so they've still got some capacity all right. Let's shift gears as we continue our conversation with Mike? Freeman the wall Kennedy Commissioner Chairman I know that You along with other commissioners and other counties around the state have a been worried about the cares act and how this money is going to get distributed We were not very happy with what we originally saw. It came out where the five largest counties over five hundred thousand would get their share in the state with the rest we've been working very closely with CCI and with the JBC to get in place so that that money does get distributed the way that it should be. I think the ABC understands that and agrees with that. And so I think as we move forward I feel fairly confident that you know these. These smaller the rest of the counties are going to get there as well. I mean I mean there's been a lot of money spent in a number of counties including here where we bought and you know we purchased a lot of P P that we've distributed to two local first responders and whatever also I mean we're spending that is counting money too so these local jurisdictions don't have to do that in at the end of the day we need to get that money back into be able to continue and help What's going on with all with all of our first responders and pal and whatever else and it's only fair that that money gets distributed all way across the state as it wouldn't as as it was intended by congressman. The cares act was passed. You mentioned that when it was first released this is what came out Was it was it? An oversight was trying to plant and its sneak this through. What was the reasoning for it? Being distributed how it was when this the cares act was first released here in Colorado. You'd have to ask the governor. That question he's the one that released that originally I. I don't know what his thoughts were on that. What was his. What was his attitude? win you guys started to push back and when counties around the state started to push back. I think that I think that it probably took a lot of pressure from CCI and the JBC and of course you immediately responded that You know he would look at it and and figure out what was fair I I. I don't know what he was originally thinking you know. I can't speak for the governor. I realized that there's a huge. There's a huge fall off in the state budget as well. But you know we're all in this together. whether it's the counties and municipalities as well as the state and we've all got to work together To to make to make us come out at the end you know in the best way possible. So you know you can't be that we're going to pick and choose winners and losers again which is exactly what I believe. We've been doing with businesses since we originally started the stay at home owners. That's what we're doing. We're picking and choosing which businesses can succeed and which ones are gonNA fail and we need to stop talking with Weld County Commissioner. Mike Freeman and and I know that this has been trying times and I know that this has been Crazy Times for a lot of people and and hopefully we're starting near the end of this. Mike what are the things that I've been talking with Mayor Gates about yesterday and and Town of Johnstown Council members. And I know there's a lot of local financial aid because the more like a kind of like we talked about with the cares AC. Some of the financial aid from the federal government has state government has not been distributed as we were expecting Do you see any resolutions or anything. from the county for local businesses and financial aid to through the county. Well so through the county what we're really doing is working very closely with upstate and business retention and we've put Additional two hundred and seventy five thousand dollars into the Enterprise Fund. The difficulty with with Weld County. Is You know unlike the chamber in Greeley or different municipalities. That can go out and what they're doing great working together unfortunately Coun- We've got thirty two municipality right difficult to distribute that in a way that makes sense. That actually is going to do anything. That's going to benefit this. Because at the end of the day a five thousand dollar grant to a business is going to save that business. What we need to do at the end of the day. I think all rolling well county is to make sure that we have the guidelines out the things in place to continue to open businesses. Get people back to work if people back employed. And that's the best thing that we can do in Weld. County is get business operating again versus trying to figure out how to distribute small grants to businesses throughout thirty two municipalities. Well Mike appreciate your time this morning. a lot of great insight and again encouraging news and it seems every time we talk more encouraging news. Are you excited to get your mind off of this a little bit on Thursday night and we maybe can talk a little bit of Sports with the NFL draft? Yeah at least at least that's GonNa be one thing. That's the only thing sports related. That's new for a very long time now. And you know hopefully Hopefully we're going to get this figured out and we're GONNA and we're going to be able to see sports. Come back at some point. I realized that in the big picture Sports isn't that big a deal but on the other side of that you know. Here's the other thing that we got going on. It's not just the economics things. It's it's the mental aspect of this and and what that's doing to people that are just you know Frustrated and tired and and and just need to be able to go and do things that they're normally used to do at some point and and you know sports is Great. Release for that as well to take your mind off of things that are going on that you can't control so yeah very much. Look forward to getting back to to the normal to the normal operations not only in Weld County Colorado and across this nation. Hey Amen to that Mike appreciate your time this morning. Commissioner and We'll be catching up with these soon and Thank you for the great work that you and your fellow commissioners are doing and we look forward to talking soon. Thanks Tanner thanks welcoming Commissioner Chairman Mike Freeman and a lot of good points there. I mean I know. And you knew that this was going to be the approach from the Commissioners and and from Weld County that it was time to get things reopened in time to to start rolling an answer. Start getting things back to the normal one of the I'll get into some takeaways that I had from Commissioner Freeman to interview and on the other side but a lot of great points there a lot of great information.

Open nine fifty five. The time closing on nine fifty six. If you've got any updates go ahead and give us call nine seven zero three five three thirteen ten or Texan that cave text line at three one nine nine six three one nine nine six wanted to get to a headline that caught my eye today. four twenty marijuana party busted in New York City over failure to maintain social distancing this out of ABC News. Police in New York City broke up a four. Twenty Party of course April twentieth being yesterday. Party in Manhattan on Monday. Not for the weed. But for failing to maintain social distancing under the novel Corona Virus Pandemic according to the New York City Police Department. I can't believe I'm even reading this article on officers with the. Nypd were called to the party. After receiving a tip that the Revellers were not practicing social distancing a temporary requirement in the city to help curb the virus spread. Police said they found people gathered on the third floor of vacant commercial building In in the flat iron neighborhood of Manhattan at around wait for it. Four twenty pm smoking marijuana and not staying six feet away from one. Another thirty eight people thirty one man. That doesn't make it. That math doesn't add up thirty eight people. Thirty one men and five women Were issued summons a summons for criminal trespassing according to police. There were no citations. Order specifically regarding social distancing police said in addition to marijuana found at the scene pills edibles money and bottles of bootleg alcohol were also found and recovered So this was something that had been planned through social media and they followed through on it but I think myself along with just about every other person out. There would never have thought that we would see a marijuana party. Busted up for standing too close together. That'll do it for us here on no co now. Dan Patrick show coming up next.

A truck driver who allegedly drove into a crowd of Minneapolis protesters has been arrested and charged. Authorities in Belgium and France have arrested twenty six suspects in connection with the October two thousand nine hundred debts, a thirty nine. Vietnamese immigrants discovered inside a refrigerated truck Essex England. Finally in Tennessee authorities found the bodies of two children while investigating child abuse case. This and more coming up on sort and scaled daily. A truck driver, who was filmed driving to a crowd of protesters. Minneapolis is in custody and facing charges. Fox News nine identified the suspect as thirty year old. Bogged Shirk Oh. The incident happened around six PM on Sunday during a protest against police brutality. But Turkey was accused of driving his truck around a roadblock in order to reach a section of I thirty five, which police closed off to vehicles and were protesters had gathered. A thirty say the trickle deliberately drove the truck into the crowd at a high speed. Fortunately no injuries have been reported among the protesters.

He was assaulted by some while others protected him until police arrived on the scene and took him into custody. Patricia received treatment for non-life threatening injuries before being booked on suspicion of assault. He's being held without bond. An additional charges against him maybe added as the investigation progresses. So far, please do not know the motive for the attack. The New York Daily News reported that Jerko is private contractor for Kim advantage. Authorities say that the companies cooperating with the investigation. In, related news from Minneapolis Governor Tim Walls announced on Sunday the he's appointed State Attorney General. Keith Ellison as a lead prosecutor on all cases stemming from the death of George Floyd. forty-six year old floyd died on Monday. May Twenty fifth after being physically restrained by three Minneapolis police officers. One of the officers forty four year old Derek Chevette was filmed as he presses, knee and Floyd's neck for nearly nine minutes, refusing to ease despite the pleas of the victim and witnesses. On Friday Hennepin, county prosecutor Mike Freeman and announced charges of third degree, murder and second degree manslaughter again Shaaban. Freeman emphasize this was the fastest prosecution of a police officer in the state's history, but received criticism from many who called the charges and and light and the progress of the investigation to slow. On Friday the GonNa received a written appeal from Tennessee representatives to transfer the case to ellison. The letter stated quote. Unfortunately, our constituents, especially, constituents of color have lost faith in the ability of Hennepin county attorney Mike Freeman to fairly and impartially investing prosecute these cases. On, Sunday, governor walls mentioned that in a conversation with family they to asked him to appoint Ellis into lead the case. The. Governor said that he understands the concern. He also stated quote, time and time again. The system works perfectly well as it was designed to deny those rights and denied justice, the communities of color prosecuting police officers for misconduct, including homicide murder is very difficult. This decision is one that I feel takes us in that direction and the step to start getting justice for George Floyd. Our. Next story brings us to Europe. On Wednesday authorities in France and Belgium announced the arrests of twenty six human trafficking suspects in connection with the deaths of thirty nine Vietnamese migrants who were discovered in a refrigerated truck and Essex in October of two thousand nineteen. The suspects were arrested early. Tuesday morning and a series of coordinated raids. On October twenty third two thousand, eighteen, thirty nine bodies were discovered inside a refrigerated truck near the port of Essex in England. Investigation eventually determined that all the victims were Vietnamese citizens between the ages of fifteen and forty four. Many of the victims came from impoverished villages and are believed to pay traffickers to smuggle them into the West. The thirty one men and eight women that is a result of a combination of lack of oxygen and overheating inside the enclosed space. Arrests followed in England and Ireland. Twenty five year old Maurice Roberson. The driver of the truck pled guilty to thirty nine counts of manslaughter in April. The investigation revealed that some of the migrants entered the truck and Belgium. The Belgian prosecutor said on Wednesday that they quickly established the route. The immigrants took inside Belgium. Threes in Belgium lead to the arrest of thirteen suspects of which eleven were Vietnamese citizens and to our Moroccan citizens. Searches executed in Brussels safehouse also found five immigrants. The Paris prosecutor said that the investigation in France uncovered a large human trafficking operation which provided emigrants with local housing and transportation to the next destination. The operation was behind the refrigerator truck and had been operating for months transporting dozens of immigrants from Southeast Asia to the UK daily. The suspects face up to fifteen years in prison, if convicted on human trafficking charges as well as a fine of up to one hundred and fifty thousand euro per victim. After, the break authorities in Tennessee recover the remains of two children while investigating a child abuse neglect case. Now for our final story of the day. Police in Tennessee have recovered the remains of two children while investigating sixty three year old Michael Gray senior and his wife sixty year old Shirley and gray for child abuse. The first set of remains was down Berry in the backyard of the couples residents in ten mile in Rhode County. The second set was recovered from the yard of the former residents in Knox County property owned by their adult son Michael Gray Junior. The KNOXVILLE news reports that the investigation was launched on May twenty second. A passer-by called police after finding one of the couple's adopted children walking alone by the road and ten bio. The caller told dispatch that the child had been dropped off and didn't know where he was. Deputy County Sheriff's Office learned that the greys moved at ten mile in two thousand sixteen and lived there with four adopted children. Deputies returned the child home and reported the incident to the Tennessee Department of Children's services. The, following day Michael Grayson your came into the. Office, in Kingston, and said that he had a fifteen year, old boy locked in the basement, and another child buried in the backyard. Michael Senior waived his Miranda Rights and gave deputies written permission to search the ten Mile House. Surely also wave rates. According to the arrest affidavit, the home smelled like urine feces. They found a fifteen year old boy in an unfinished basement, which was partially and not wired for electricity or for running water. The was also covering garbage and human and animal feces. The fifteen year old was the oldest of four children, children and based on a search warrant, told the deputies the he'd been confined to the basement since two thousand sixteen as punishment for stealing food from the Pantry for four years. He's only fed bread and water. From multiple sources investigators learned that in two thousand seventeen, an eleven year old girl was also sent to the basement as punishment for stealing food. Like the older boy, she was only given bread and water for sustenance, and he told them that she died after a few months. When questioned gray, senior admitted that girl died, and he plays for body and cardboard box and eventually buried her in the backyard. A search of the yard found human remains. The remaining children, two boys and a girl were not spared. All three were described as stunted in growth. One of the boys was regularly punished by being locked in a wire dog cage in the basement and tell the grace built at designated concrete isolation room. This room was three feet by four feet under the stairs on the first floor. Surely claims that the children were being home-schooled, but according to the deputies, two of them had no formal education, and we're in fact amazed by what our refrigerator does when they observed one of their foster home. During the investigation, detectives learned the prior to moving ten mile. The grease resided in Knox County and home owned by their adult son Michael Gray Junior. Ray Junior told police that his parents printed the basement of the property for eight hundred twenty dollars a month and lived there with a five adopted kids. The oldest of Greece Children told detectives that another boy had been confined to the basement and starved when they lived in Knox County. When the child disappeared, the greys reportedly told him that he'd gone to live with another family. A surge of the backyard recovered remains of a boy who is believed to have died in two, thousand, fifteen or two, thousand and sixteen. The Arrest Warrant says that the grace never reported either child missing. Michael Junior denied having any knowledge of the abuse. The deaths are the burials. He told investigators that his parents told him that both kids had been removed by. And went to live with different families. Michael Gray senior officer. His son was unaware of any illegal activity. However the authorities disagree and accused grade junior of being fully aware. The search of the ten Mile House Don a text message from junior to his father, sent on March, Twenty Fifth Twenty twenty, which said quote, Hey, twenty, two blank and blank on the census I. Don't know if they share Info with the IRS. Investigators maintain the great junior claimed both deceased children as dependence on his tax return for two thousand nineteen. Michael Gray senior, and surely and grey have so far been charged with two counts of aggravated child abuse to count of especially aggravated kidnapping, three counts of aggravated child, neglect and one count of abuse of a corpse. So far, no one's been charged children's debts. However, this is expected to change once. The autopsies have been concluded. Before, we go, we have an update came recording of the show. The results of the independent autopsy of George Floyd performed by Dr. Michael Baden and University of Michigan. Medical Schools Director of autopsy and forensic. Sciences Dr Alicia Wilson have been announced. On Monday Dr Baden Dr Wilson announced that the results of their independent autopsy showed the Floyd's death was quote a caused by his fix due to neck and back impression that lead to a lack of blood flow to the brain. The results of this examination contradicts the results of the autopsy conducted by the County Coroner's office, which released their own findings on Mondays well. In hip and county autopsy report. They stayed that Floyd's death was. A homicide caused by cardiopulmonary arrest while being restrained by law enforcement officers. Dr Michael Baden who was New York's medical examiner. From Nineteen, seventy, eight to nine, hundred, seventy nine, and has conducted many profile autopsies, including Eric, Garner and Michael. Brown stated that Floyd was in good health before his death, and that the video of his death she'll the compression to his neck and back area nearly. Dr Baden's stated quote when he said that I can't breathe. Unfortunately, many police are under the impression that if you can talk, that means you're breathing. That is not true. Dr Wilson stated that toxicology reports and other examinations are still ongoing and acknowledged that says they conduct a second autopsy. They did not have access to Floyd's tissue samples in their original state quote. We feel that those items changer alter the cause of death with mechanical physio. Prior to Dr Baden in Dr Wilson, announcing your findings Ben Crump, the lawyer representing the Floyd family stated quote. The ambulance was a hearse.

July 20th: Tanner talks with Weld County Commissioner Mike Freeman

"How Long. Good. Thanks for joining US Here on Noko now said it'd be with you I am Tanner Schwinn. People like to call me. Ryan on this program, but I M Taylor, swift rank Kelly doing production work as always excited to be with you here. Nice long slowish weekend I will say which is always exciting when you can have slow weekend, it's always a good thing especially in the new cycle now a days. It's just been ridiculous but excited to be with everybody here. On this Monday afternoon and well. We're going to have a fun show for you here today we've Got Weld County Commissioner Chairman Mike Freeman joining the program a little bit later on and well I. Don't know if you noticed, but there was a story from the well county government saying that well you know what we walked through it on Friday. Talking about how the commissioners are not going to be enforcing the statewide mask mandate. A one of the one of the questions that I have for the commissioner and I. I kind of already know what his answer to this is going to be. But I won't I won't obviously speak for the commissioner but. This just puts the the control back in the hands of not only the citizens, but. The businesses because I've been in a couple of businesses already this this week, and after what came down last week of the statewide mask Mandy, and though there's been some that have absolutely enforced did and there are some that had not so that's the whole idea behind. This is to to give the give the businesses the option to either enforce it or to not enforce it and it looks like well to me from where I been in I. Want to get your thoughts on this call, the female hotline, nine, seven, zero, three, five, three, thirteen, ten, nine, seven, zero, three, five, three, thirteen, ten, or text into that feed motech sign at three, one, nine, nine six. Most, are going to enforce it. It was it was probably an eighty eighty percent twenty percent mix between those that were enforcing it. Those were word. The corporate for lack of a better term chain stores I don't. I I went. I went to Buffalo Wild. Wings on Sunday evening actually and had my mask on saying up front I'm looking like. Well. There's nobody I mean. Obviously the people who are getting up from their table to go to the bathroom and stuff. We're wearing them and I was like okay. That's fine, then clearly like I. Don't need to be wearing this sorts of mine office. I got closer to my table and sat down. Then on my I use the restroom while I was there didn't put it on nothing, but then on my way out I, had somebody stop me and say she was. She yelled while I was walking out and said when I just me, but the group I was with. We need you to wear your mask. Next time you walk through here, Mike Ma'am we just paid you in repaid the server in like I've said I. I tip very well when I go out, but. Our experience here is done were walking out so I just I said, thank you. And I walk away. So it's interesting how it seems like most of the corporate owned the the. Bigger companies are GONNA enforce it which makes sense right because they've got locations everywhere, and the rules are varying everywhere, but my question to commissioner. Freeman is You know we had this argument. Lay Back win about opening and closing things. We had the we had the state telling us. No, you can't open your business until Friday you know for barbershops. There's a Tuesday in an Friday start date. And it was like mom and dad were fighting a little bit, and and you know the state government said No. No, no, you can't. The county government said yes. You can then Dora the Department of regulatory agencies, said Yeah, you can. Who now believe? And so want to talk to you. Commissioner about this Scott James said last week that this was going to be tougher do. Not Override. He didn't use the term override, but. Public Health orders are recommendations. This statewide executive order is a mandate. But now you've got in weld. County is not the only one Assadullah was county. Jump into this as well saying that they're not gonNA enforce it either. But now you've got these people jumping into it and going against. What does it mean? What does it all mean? So? We'll talk with Weld County Commissioner Chairman Mike. Freeman coming up about that as well, but Let's get to news for Northern Colorado. The Colorado Capitol Cleanup begins. I don't know if you remember this. Because Twenty Twenty S, this is the fastest slow year in the history of the world, but we didn't have some riots and wait. Some damage caused to the Colorado capitol. Has Begun, but it is scheduled to cost more than one million dollars and last until Winter Colorado has begun cleaning repairing state Capitol building after damage that occurred during weeks of protests that followed the death of Ford at the hands of Minneapolis, police officers in May the department, of Personnel Administration says the work is expected to cost more than one million dollars and last into winter. Cruise began washing away the graffiti on the building over the weekend. The DEEPA said it began cleaning the capital. Because although demonstrations around the billing continue, vandalism has subsided enough that headway can be made on the repairs. This coming out of the Colorado and by Jesse Paul. Courtesy of the car at Sun. This is an interesting one because. Yeah. We're talking about a million dollars. So do you remember when I was making it very clear that there's a difference between protests and riots. Dole's that caused damage or riots. Protests peaceful protests that every American citizen has the right to do not cause damage. They start conversations. They respect. Buildings they respect property. And they infect change. These were not that. One million dollars think about that. Guess who gets to pay for that? That's the tax payers. Congratulations people who destroyed the community that they quote unquote love to. Make a message. Uterus Const your community one million dollars. Trust me the peaceful protests. Were much more listen to. They were much more paid attention to. Whether, you believe the media, the mainstream media that says that you know obviously all the protests coverage. It was the peaceful ones that enacted change. Because when it comes to change this substantial, it had to be rational thinking. That's who calmer heads always prevail right? That's exactly what happens so one million dollars to start. This started started over the weekend. Let's go to the Tribune. Wildfire Burns two thousand acres in. Weld County State and federal firefighting aircraft called into campaign flames this coming out of the Tribune and Bruce Finley flames, devoured, grass kicked up smoke around homes and oil and gas facilities near the intersection of well, Kenya roads, forty, nine and twenty two forcing fire departments to call for Air Support Sheriff's Department spokesman. Joe Moylan said This was something that I saw even an eating over the weekend. I looked a little bit back to. The South and I'd like that cloud or that smoke well, it was smoke. State authorities deployed to single engine tankers and two large tankers equipped with infrared sensors. Federal agencies deployed two aircraft coordinating fire suppression work, multiple drums of slurry, made of snuff flames by seven PM authorities deemed the fire contained ground crews were dousing hotspots a couple dozen homes were evacuated. The fire destroyed a farmhouse and shed authority said they weren't sure what sparked the fire, but we're looking at the possibility that lightening strike lightening striking dry grasses storms move through the area. That is I mean. It's a massive air. It's a massive area that it burned. Moylan said obviously. It's a large fire with multiple agencies involved were trying to get to aircraft in the air. The command team is on seeing. They're trying to get everyone organized and working together. This thing contained, so they did get it contained. They got it done in A. Timely manner to say the least, but you know two thousand acres that is a bunch of ground, and you saw what a lightning storm we got lay even on Sunday we got some more, but over the weekend it was. It was a little bit rough with some of the lightning fight flying around, and what has been a? You know when you look at it a dry year for weld county. Okay, let's go to. Let's go to this out of the Tribune as well. Weld County retail food inspections. Let's dive into this because This is always interesting, right? This is by Tamara markered. So the three requirements are pass, reinspection, required or closed so as we look across their Alberto's on Eleventh, Street garnering a reinspection required cables. CATTLEMEN's chilies coyotes all past. L. Charro as with a reinspection required the everyday store international. House I hop. JB's King supers Ellen see bar noodles and company Outback restaurant there. They're all past in Evans. There was just a couple that are having some reinspection required culture, a restaurant, and vp a FA- Boba, which the owners I know less pronounced. Fuh is because I went there once not to this one, but a foot down in Denver actually I'm. Not Not, my cup of tea, I guess I will say if you like noodles and you like that type of food. It'll be up your alley, but not for me. You heard me talk about last week as we continue the news four Noko. Chevron announces five dollar deal for Noble Energy Colorado's second largest oil and gas producer Chevron side in a statement that noble energy provides it with low-cost pay, excuse me proved reserves and attractive under undeveloped resources and offshore assets that will strengthen the company's position in the eastern Mediterranean. Acquiring Noble Energy will also enhance chevrons US unconventional shale resources with proven assets on three hundred, thirty, six thousand acres in the Denver Jewelsburg Basin. This is. Obviously I had this conversation. And how many times, but the oil industry is hurting, and you're going to see more of this. You're going to see these big deals made. You're going to see these. These deals getting struck as well, and this is a big one. I mean we're talking about the. Layoffs I, mean extraction, oil and gas just had to laugh sixty eight employees so now, Chevron, housing deal with Noble Energy, the agreement calls for acquiring all of Noble Energies, outstanding shares in an all stock transaction for ten dollars and thirty eight cents per share Noble Energy Shareholders received about point one one nine one shares of Chevron for each noble energy share the total value including data. The transaction is thirteen billion dollars, so we're talking. We're talking cash and we're talking bank that we the the common folk don't know what that means. I mean thirteen billion key. Wrap your head around thirteen billion dollars in April. Chevra in April of twenty, nine, thousand nine. Chevron was set to acquire anadarko the largest producer in Colorado in a deal vowed at thirty three billion dollars when Occidental Petroleum started a bidding war occidental acquired Anadarko. For fifty seven billion dollars, so this gives you a little bit of a grasp when I talk about. When I talk about the amount of money and the amount of jobs that that the oil and gas industry affect think about that. Fifty seven billion dollars for the largest oil and gas industry the company in Colorado. That's just nuts. Let's go now. J., B. S. increases, wages and changes Jane Watson fish out of the Tarim. J. B. S. workers in Greeley will receive a wage increase effective immediately. The corporate office announced Monday if you remember. Just a couple of weeks back there was a walkout some J. B. S. workers just left because the union said they were being grossly underpaid. The new base wage the guerrilla plant is eighteen dollars per hour, and the maximum rate per hour is twenty four dollars and sixty cents according to the press release, these wages are some of the highest in the industry From the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics confirmed the companies claim so. Big News for J.. B. S. there four nineteen the time now let's take a break. We'll come back on the other side and we'll get well county commissioner chairman. Mike Freeman on the phone. Don't go near. You're listening to no co- now on northern, his voice, thirteen ten KFI. Bass. UNC bears target game coverage lives on thirteen ten K. F. K.. Them in to. Go now. Got Some severe weather happening out there apparently flash flood warnings. That will we're hearing. See! This is why this is why I'm not a meteorologist. Told you I I looked at. It looks like it's going to be all north of us so anyhow. That's where we stand right now. That's the news for Noko. Obviously, we'll diamond some more of these bigger stories a little bit later on, but this was the story obviously that the broke last week and one that is well. It's garnered national attention, and it seems like I. Give Him Credit for Welcome to commissioner. Chairman Mike Freeman stands by the rights of the Constitution, and they did again here they will county commissioner board did again here with this executive order and joining us now is commissioner Chairman Mike, Freeman and commissioner. This one had a little bit more Well I'll just say a little bit more power behind it in terms of the executive order coming down from the governor. Can so how are you today? I'm doing well Mike I. Appreciate you taking some time. I know it's been. It's been a stressful couple of months for you. Well it's been stressful couple of months or four months for for everybody I mean. This is a stressful time with with covid nineteen out there and you know we acknowledge that we acknowledge that there's an issue and we acknowledged that It might be a good idea where mass and certainly encourage people to do that if if that's what they feel comfortable with, and we're GONNA continue to do that in that way. Yeah, and so you guys. Obviously you guys meaning the board. Have decided that the executive order from governor pull is is not enforceable. What are your thoughts do this? Well part of the reason. We think it's not enforceable. Because the governor went on TV several times, and so it was, it was unenforceable back. You said he wasn't going to issue mass because it was an unenforceable order. We agree it is unenforceable and there's no. There's nothing tied to any statute. I think that's why the Sheriff in both the Weld County I'm. Well County County immediately came out and said that his law enforcement. They were going to enforce it either. Because there's nothing there's no statute tied to it. There's no law place. Right and this has been the biggest a debate. Well, not the big debate. I think I asked debate, my be the MON style the biggest debate that we've had, but with that being, said the executive orders. that's been a debate about whether the constitutional or not. We still haven't seen a ruling on this, but you guys state a couple of statutes back you up. Well and I'm not an attorney and I don't pretend you. Spark was one of the best county attorneys in the state of Colorado and he is the one that that. You know went through the statute and they gave us. was. Why was unconstitutional on enforceable? So he say this not enforceable, but this really again Mike leaves it up to the rights of the business, which is kind of been your message all along. Absolutely a business has every right to require in their business. They have every right to that and I myself just like any other commissioner on. If we go into a business replies masks. We wear masks. I mean that's the appropriate thing to do. What I'm not going to do is tell a business owner that they must I think one of the other. That I've got is as we as we go through this and we start looking at school. This is where my real consistent stars become, and that is you know it's one thing to wear a mask to go into Safeway for fifteen minutes or twenty minutes I have a real concern, and I think help it for several real concern over whether it's a good idea for a kid to wear a for six or seven hours, and not breed any new oxygen, not really breathe clean air in I think there's some health risk without as well. And that I mean obviously leads straight into August and the start of school Mike and this is one of the. I mean everything seems to be the hot button topic along the way, but school starting backup is another one of these things. The governor has put a thirty day expiration. This mandate do see that being extended. You see that just expiring after thirty days with a strong recommendation by the governor's saying to wear a damn ask. Why did you see this ending? You know I guess I have no idea what the government to do. My expectations going to do the same thing he's done with almost every other executive order, and he can only issue and his mind and an executive order for thirty days, and then when he gets close to the end, he just he just extends the executive order, which would be my assumption, but I have no idea you know I'm not the governor. Governor I have no idea what would thirty days so I guess. Wait and see well county commissioner chairman. Mike Freeman a Mike. Obviously, this was big news. Right off the Bat, right? It seems like every time somebody. goes just a slightly different direction. It gets blown. Way Up, does it make your job harder going against what the state is doing and If so, how does that impact your decision making? You Know I. Don't think it makes my job harder. you know I I was elected to represent the citizens of World County. And will continue to do that and do that in ways that also I was also swore to uphold the constitution, so of the United States and the state of Colorado in charter and I believe that I believe that that's what we're doing. We're we are. We have continued to not take Kelvin nineteen lightly. We've continued to put guidelines out to try and keep people safe and we continue to. Do that and we will continue to do that. And and like I said you know it's a recommendation to where matheny CDC's change their mind, a couple of times on this back and forth so the World Health Organization I. Don't think anybody really knows for sure, but what I do know is that at the end of the day? personal responsibility and personal associations or what this is based on is the county commissioner will stand up for those rights and continue to stand up for those rights one I know that is hurt across, not only Colorado, but across the country as we start to try and get things, back into a right direction commissioner any conversations happening between. Your Commission and the governor. No. We have not heard anything from together. Have you reached down? Now we have not. Just wondering about that because I know that. There's been a couple of other counties to follow along the way our last last question regarding this Commissioner is was the board in complete agreement about about making this ruling, saying that at a local level that this is unenforceable. Absolutely. This was a five. Oh, decision, We were all completely in support of this decision. Will County Commissioner Chairman Mike Freeman. one of the things that I think commissioned you and I have had this conversation before on an off here, but I mean well carries. Numbers you know as much as a as a game that the numbers turned into, but the the big conversation they were talking about his hospitalizations and deaths will count. Numbers are among some of the best in the state when it comes to those two categories. Well that's correct. I mean we are Um. We have very few people in the Hostel County with Kobe. we haven't had we got one for. The last forty eight days. I think those are great numbers, and and I think that as you can see more and more test, which we're seeing more and more tests performed. You'RE GONNA. You're GONNA see more and more positive cases, but but we're just not seeing we're not seeing the impacts on the seriousness wasn't I started so and I'm not a doctor. I, don't I don't know if mutates and becomes maybe more contagious for. I don't know I. Don't understand I don't think anybody really. Has Anybody asked those questions? I, can look at the numbers. We get the number a on hospitalizations and catalyses, and like I, said we've had once. In the last forty eight date. County Commissioner Chairman. Mike Freeman What's your message to those opposed to starting school back up in the fall? I think I'd just think that would be the wrong thing to do. These kids need to be. You could. You could possibly lose. An entire generation of kids are not in school and learning You know we. We know for sure that their the least vulnerable. At least at least that's what all the experts say for whatever it's worth, you know. I think that There's a lot more. There's a lot more to this than than actually just learning in school. It's it's you know it's. It's kids being able to associate with each other. They're mental health. They're all of those things have got to factor in all of these things are being impacted by kids, not even school That's obviously a decision that individuals. Across. The state is gonNA is going to make I was on the school years and The station as a school board. What's in the best interest of the kids in that district and they're in Every district is not the same. There's a huge difference. A school district in. Colorado or Grover Colorado than in downtown Denver so I think each school district is going to have to evaluate. What's in the best interest of the kids in their district in how? People say you future safe and keep the kids safe and yet still give kids the off. With that being, said commissioner you in favor of it, these offering online classes for students. Yeah I mean I think that I think online can work in some in some places. I think it's really difficult to expect first and second third graders to be able to learn online, and that's. That's really when you were in the most important things in life I mean. That's when you learn to read. And all the things that go forward to be able to make your productive productive citizen at some point and I think that's extremely difficult. Attention Spans and busy parents to be able to expect of kindergarten or a first grader is. Actually, learn on. Little County Commissioner Chairman Mike Freeman. Let's shift gears just a little bit here, Commissioner. Talk about the oil and gas industry there was an article that came out in which a lot of the top oil and gas heads in the state have said that the legislation is killing the gas industry. There will gas industry more than Covid nineteen What what's your take on this? And and how do you see We've had this conversation before, but I think it's worth reiterating. How do you see this bouncing back? Well obviously the biggest concern, the biggest issue, oil and gas bill one eighty one. There's no question with the oil and gas. Industry was in trouble with Senate bill one eighty one before we ever knew what Cogan was Obviously, this is impacted is impact, but at the end of the day the impact from the Cova really on oil and gas has been when people were staying at home, and the demand was the album supply was up, and until you got people back to work and back in the need for. For for that that's that's the impact codes. Nineteen had, but really the biggest impact of Senate Bill eighty-one Weld County Commissioner chairman. Mike Freeman Commissioner? I know you spoke on this a little bit, too, but I mean obviously some of the decisions as the chairman that have been made by the by the county commissioners have received not only statewide attention, but national attention talk a little bit about your role as commissioner, and as a person of being in limelight so week about where we are with cove nineteen. Well. you know you put yourself out there when you when you selected the physicians make decisions. You're obviously not gonNA. Make everybody happy Really you know, the chair We're all five of US or equal. We all have an equal vote. Really we've all chair is And and you ended up carrying you end up at the end. the spokesman more often than. Than, when you're not but the one thing, that's the one thing that I will say is every statement steamed for me is not a statement of Mike freemen's beliefs, or the statement held the board as before chair when when something comes from. Is GonNa be half of the board of County Commissioners. Well I appreciate that because I know it You've had quotes thrown up. From you either on you know the statewide media as well as the National Media and and Commissioner Something that I'd like to have you speak onto. I'll get out of here on this one is the rhetoric of this whole thing has changed from. We have to keep hospitalizations down to making sure that we are tracking the cases. What is your take on the coverage of this? And how the rhetoric has changed from either regardless of political party, but how the rhetoric changed about covid nineteen. Well I think if the end of the day as as I've said many times the more people you test, the more the more obviously positive cases. You'RE GONNA see I. Don't think that is the issue. I think the only two issues in my mind or hospitalizations and protect. And as long as we keep those down which. Way Down in Weld County. They have been in well county. In fact, we actually hit our peak about April tenth in Weld County and have been on a steady decrease in both those hospitalizations and tally, since then so that's the number that that's the number that matters to me. It's not number of cases because you could eliminate number of cases by just not testing, and that doesn't make any sense. We need to have when you see what's out there. And get ten percent of our population tested were now somewhere around twelve or thirteen percent of all county citizens have been tested you're still running around that number of around of all test of all tests conducted somewhere around four percent somewhere between three and four percent in positive, which is a very small number especially when you figure that most of the time. Time you're testing people that had symptoms or felt like there was a recently passed, and we're getting passed out a little bit now or because open work tests are available to anybody whether they are non. They just WANNA get. That's great, but the number of cases to me is not the back. The number of new cases is not an issue. It's hospitalizations and. And I think that's the narrative that we need to work out. And that's the I know commissioner as well as what you guys are. Pacing your decisions off because those numbers although confusing, it does seem like there's an underlying There's an underlying resource to decisions being made from. If you're looking at the right set of numbers. I would agree with that I. think that's what's driving our decision. All right commissioner eighty the else that we didn't get a chance to touch on I. appreciate it very thorough conversation I appreciate you taking time and joining us as always. I know there's more tough decisions to be made along the way, but. I. Speak on behalf of all welcome and thank you for what you're doing. Oh thank you I really appreciate it all right. Commissioner Mike Freeman We appreciate your time. We'll talk with you real soon. Okay, okay sounds good thanks, thanks, that is well County Commissioner Mike Freeman. It is Great here in front of him, but you gotta just wonder like from, and that's why I want to ask that question. It's like from from the psyche side of. Okay like Mike Freeman seeing his name. run through the mud and a lot of cases, unfortunately at the state level I I've seen people that are doing it saying that. Yeah, I go to UNC which lands inside of Greeley which is inside of Weld County okay thanks for the geography lesson, but also like saying that will. This is doing this this and this. What Weld County has done is left to the business or left it to the to the group. Poor whatever you want to go like see. The UNC staff gets to make that call still. WHETHER THEY WANNA follow the state wide man. Mask mandate which I guarantee you, they will. And, they want to prevent those tests. That's up to them. But if I'm also an auto body in, and like you, said Ault Colorado or peers, or eaten, or wherever, and I'm dealing with one person. You know every thirty minutes. The mask mandate is unenforceable, but it's also it's A. It's also not allowing businesses to be able to make those decisions so I appreciate. Freemen's thoughts on that Oh boy four thirty nine two time now we need to get a break here. We'll come back on the other side. Will dive more into this and we'll also talk about. Some of those numbers that Commissioner Freeman was talking about as well but I. It's no cone outlets department, our news and weather center. Thirteen ten K of K really Fort Collins and Loveland. preps sports in the UNC bear. Thanks. Welcome back line the. Specialist Studios I. AM Tanner. Thanks for joining us on this Monday afternoon. And we appreciate you spending time with us as always. We've got a good week of guests lined up and a lot of well, a lot of information to be get passed out there to all the people again live from the auto collision specialist studios. It is a no cone now This was the the big news that was shared. Today is that the state has officially a warning to Larimer county about its variance so Larry counties receive notification writing from the Department of Public Health and environment that is variance to state orders. Help slow. The spread of new coronavirus could be revoked because of increasing case counts case counts. Not Hospitalizations anything like that. The county health department said Saturday the Lamoure County has been operating under a variance to the state, public health orders, allowing increased capacity at restaurants and breweries place worship, public gathering sizes and graduation, since May twenty third, because of its relatively low case. Count your member that this was the The talk of northern Colorado was that. Well County never received variance. In case you're wondering they have just ruled on the side of saying. We're GONNA. Leave it up to the businesses. We're GONNA. Leave it up to the individual. They never received various, but it's been operating almost similarly. To Larimer County and Weld County have for whatever reason I'm not gonNA pretend to know a ton about these numbers and I'm GonNa. Pretend to know about how the human interaction has been going amongst people. Welcome numbers have not been going up? We saw a sharp rise early. You have a lot of e central quote. Unquote is central businesses and workers up here in Weld County. But you don't see the rise now. What is that about? But LERMA county receiving this this warning? The variance allows restaurants and bars operate at fifty percent of maximum occupancy up two hundred seventy five people and outdoor seating areas rather than state maximum of fifty people, including staff, said Katie O'Donnell She's a spokeswoman. For the Lamoure County Department of Health and environment, it also allows for public gatherings of up to fifty people rather than the state limit of ten and events in worship services with groups as large as a hundred and seventy five people in spaces where social distancing can still be maintain the state's current public health orders limit the of people for events and worship services to fifty percent of the capacity of the room, being used with the maximum fifty people per room. The county variants also allows graduation ceremonies which we've seen happen. A couple of times the various require the county to meet certain benchmarks or risk having resented the approval letter from. Jill. Hunts Hanger Executive Director of the State health departments of the various automatically resented putting the county back out of the current state wide order, if it receives reports of more than twenty five new cases or ten percent of individuals tested on three separate days in a fourteen day period, there are fifteen or more new hospital admissions of. With presumptive positive previous, Zac, give positive cases on three separate days in a fourteen day period, if the two major hospital systems in the county banner and UC health or treating more than sixty five patients for Kobe nineteen. O'Donnell said Saturday that the variances have not been automatically rescinded despite the Kanye reporting a single high single day high of thirty seven cases, July, twelfth and thirty first on both excuse me. Cases July twelfth and. Fifteenth and July sixteenth through contact. Tracing the county is tied. Many of the cases counts too large gatherings around the fourth of July holiday. So, yeah! I mean I mean. Take it what it is. But allaire county is in risk of getting this resented, so my question is is if this does get rescinded. How are you going to tell your that? How are you going to go backwards on that? That's a tough message to have to deliver to people. The county health department a two week, mitigation plan by Monday showing how will decrease stabilize case counts? O'Donnell said she also said the plan must show strong community, enforcement and clients for face coverings, social distancing, and making sure businesses are following the required guidelines. quote from O'Donnell is it is always the hope of L., C., D. H. E. Olympic, county, Department of Health and environment that there is no rollback in businesses or not closed again and county, but there relocation of the local variants from the state would not give the county a choice. We've seen that here in. In Weld county to be false. There is a choice depending on the local governments side. We've saw plenty of weld county businesses open when they're not supposed to be with no ramifications with no problems afterwards. That's just not. It's just unfortunately not factual now. If you're following the state mandate then, yes, absolutely, but it doesn't seem like there are. There's more bark than bite coming from the state office at this time now will that stay the same? I'm not sure, but at the moment you're seeing a lot more bark than bite coming from governor Pulis when it comes to talking about. The the variances, and exactly what's going to be happening with the people that loses them together learn county successfully reduced cases back in May and June and our response has been a model for the state. Said Tom Gonzales the county's public health director. I know that we will regroup in reverse this uptick, but in order to do that, we must all take seriously and be diligent with hand, washing face coverings and social distancing. We must lower case counts to keep our businesses open this coming from Kelley Lyle of the Colorado and You know it's just kind of interesting it's it's so strange to me that larimer county sitting there like that well Kennison here I'd with with the different variances. And won't counties. Cases not not take up. Cases maybe but hospitalizations and deaths like we talked about. That's those are those are the stance that we need to be following along with? That's not happening in Weld County, but it isn't. Lara County so does that mean what does that mean does that mean people down here have finally had enough, and it's like okay. We can't stay inside for this long. There's a lot of different ways to look at it, but. Not sure what the best way to do. It is, but all we know hospitalizations. And deaths or the to stance to be wary of live from the article, especially studios, it is a no co now proactive physical therapy locations in eating and Greeley sports hopefully right around the corner. If not I know that people are taking this time, because Hey, work looks a lot different for people. Still there's still some people who are working from home or have a little bit more downtime, and they're getting their bodies. Taking care of that can include those reconstructive surgeries to help the need. Help the ankle to help the hip whatever it is, but don't waste it. Don't wait that surgery. It's expensive it hurts. I know I use to physical therapy had to go back in. Practice physical therapy, though they'll get you better than you were before. They're gonNA.

This coming out of seeing in in University of Oxford vaccine is safe in induces early immune reaction. Early results suggest. I obviously I like to keep the format of my show, but probably should have opened with this because when you talk about the corona virus I need to be reporting on the good news just as much as the bad and I feel like I've done that and I feel like I continued to try to do this. This has just been just a slammed packed show that I. Want to talk about this. Little bit later, but still preliminary results of a phase. Trial of coronavirus vaccine developed by the University of Oxford suggests that is safe and induces that our immune response like I said the vaccine provoked an antibody response within twenty eight days in a T. cell response within fourteen days according to release from the medical journal the, Lancet, the trial included over a thousand people eighteen to fifty five with no history of cove, nineteen took place in five UK hospitals for able to late May. Participants received the cove, nineteen vaccine or I'm not even gonNA. Try and use the act at the actual Madison, the medicinal word for that. But here's a quote. The immune system as two ways of finding and attacking pathogens, antibody and t cell responses that's vaccine is intended to induce bolt, so it can attack the virus when it's circulating in the body as well as attacking infected cells. This is from University of Oxford Professor Andrew Polar D-. The study's lead author said in a statement.

NoCo Now Weld County Safer at Work Announcement

"Well Command special edition of Noko. Now I am tanner swint. Thanks for joining us. We are interrupting regular programming as there are some some big news coming out I'm also joined by Gayle. Fallon of moorings with gale gale. Thanks for joining me. Que Tanto second to be with you and Also joining us. Let's jump straight into it. We've got big news coming. Commissioner Chairman Mike Freeman joining me as well Mike. Thank you so much for joining me This afternoon glad to do well. And Mike Listless just jump straight into it Just some big changes coming in and big announcement from the wall. County commissioners absolutely Well at the spot where we are We're in preparation for the gradual reopening of businesses across the Crosswell County You Know County and the public Department of Public Health and environment. I have probably still said it's safer Taper Work Best Practices. Empoisoned businesses We you know we understand the need to start to reopen businesses and get our economy healthy again. We wanted to provide some guidance and best practices. That will help. Employees Errs and business owners. Do that in a gradual and responsible way. So that's really what this is about. It's guidelines to be able to slowly start to open businesses to get businesses back operating to get employees back to work but do it in a safe and responsible manner so this is nothing. Consider close to saying we're going to be business as usual. I like it was on February. First isn't a gradual reopening of businesses It's crucial businesses reopened gradually and responsibly. For the safety of their employees and their customers. No-one said expect business to be offering a full capacity for a while. But it's important to business at least start the reopening process so we can get back to work in Weld County with all that said. Sorry there with all that said The big takeaway right is that this is not limited to specific a specific businesses. Not We're we're This will be for businesses in general open across Across the board We will be putting out And we're working with the health department on specific guidelines for You know for different. Different sectors Different specific guideline looking at at as every business a little bit different specifics Business sectors for example Restaurants nail salons Whatever it just different ones. I think the health department is looking at seven or eight of these or I don't know how many will actually get to a win. They'll be out but we're working with the health department to get specific guidelines that are that are more generalized to an individual type industry to mention her Freeman. What this go into effect The same day as Governor Policies Safer at home initiative go it will be going into effect on April twenty seven. Stay on April twenty six and this will begin on April. Twenty seven quick. Follow up here. Do you expect any pushback from the government on this decision and if so in what form do you expect that to come? Well I mean I think the governor has been pretty clear all along that his orders are unenforceable and so he said that would stay at home order. That was pretty interesting when he gets to the end of that he says Oh. By the way none of this was enforceable anyway I think you made it very clear that he expected local health departments and local counties to figure this out and they would be the ones enforcing it. So you know at the end of the day. All we're doing is putting guidelines out. We'RE NOT TELLING BUSINESSES. They have to open or or anything like that. It's going to be up to businesses and IT'S GONNA be up to You know ninety five percent of businesses or well county or just tallies so municipalities are GonNa have to make a determination whether they're okay with that or not or their law enforcement is okay without or not what we're simply saying is here the guidelines to allow businesses to reopen if they choose to do so in whatever jurisdiction that is I think part of the reason we're doing this. Actually the main reason we're doing this is I think we're I think we're just believe is completely unfair to to pick winners and losers we been picking winners and losers in the state for the last six weeks or however long. It's been We we made a decision not ask. The governor made the decision of what was essential business I have no idea how you determined that. Pot shops are essential business but those were included in that. What we're saying. And then he comes out with this new thing he's still picking winners and losers who can open and who can't and what we're saying is we're going to treat everybody equally and fairly across. Weld County Business Systems. Talking With Weld County Commissioner Chairman Mike Freeman about these safer at work program that they're putting into place Mike. I know that there was also conversation with all of the mayors in Weld County and their feedback was taken into account as well. What was that conversation like with With the mayors and was there any pushback from from mayors not specifically necessarily but to not do not release his. Keep these safer home. Act from the state level in place. There was not You know I think individual mayors are are looking at what what they're gonNA do. I think one of the things one of the main questions that we got from. Mayors this morning was you know what about what about our our senior centers and those kinds of things and our answer to that was you know. We're not gonNA specifically tell you how you need to do that. You need to understand. Though that the most vulnerable people are the elderly. So you're going to have to figure out a way if you do those kind of things we're not putting out any kind of of direction on that. That's not that's not a business anyway but That was some of the questions that we got some that and it was kind of like you know that it's a personal responsibility. If you can have I know that that seniors are getting really frustrating. If you have a way in your senior senator that you can have small groups come out and actually have a chance to socialize and still maintain social distance. It's probably really good for the health of those senior citizens but please remember that you're looking at the most vulnerable population when you do this and do it in a careful and responsible way how refreshing to hear that. You're actually trusting The people of Weld County to be responsible in an era of covert nineteen to keep doing the things that we know. We need to do. So that we don't see a spike in cases in Weld County. But I can't help but think commissioner Freeman. This had to be kind of a tough decision for the board. As you're walking type line tight rope as well. So many elected officials are across the country between public health and safety and preventing further compromise to the weld county economy. So what was the tipping point for you? What what made you decide to enact safer at work? I think the main thing you may decide is we are all hearing from so many businesses across this county that They are not going to survive if if they're not able to be able to start to go back to work. We're looking at unemployment numbers. We're already hearing. The thirty percent of these. Businesses are not going to be able to reopen the longer. We continue to do this more businesses. We'RE GONNA put out of business and and we just state that we think that the other thing I think was the tipping point in that is if we figured out how to responsibly. Be Able to go to grocery stores go to Walmart. Go to liquor stores. Go to pot shops. Go to convenience stores do all of those kinds of things that I think we can also responsibly figure out how to open other businesses whether that's nail salons or whether that's barber shops or whatever that business is we can responsibly. Figure out a way just as we've done with these other businesses to continue to do that. Keep people say keep the employees safe and keep the customer safe and in the meantime Let's get business. Started back up in Weld County Commissioner. Mike Freeman joining us here. On no co now announcing that welcomed businesses will be able to open up back for business with measures being taken starting on Monday. Commissioner of one of the things that was in governor policies press conference from just yesterday was he did allow. He did say that that that local governments will have a say in this. He did however put the stipulation that if governments were to loosen the regulations. They had to go through the Colorado Health Department. Has there been that contact with the Colorado Health Department and if so what was that like there has not been and we are going to rely on. Wealth County Health Arvind to make decisions in Weld County. Yeah all right yeah. I knew I knew that was one of the stipulations and I know that That he's been putting that into place and that kind of goes back. Did you see that? The you see the car health department making that contact and saying that this is what these are the guidelines. The Need to happen. Well I think we're back to where we've been from the very beginning with stay at home or anything else. It is entirely unenforceable from the state level. It is enforceable by the local deflect by the local health departments and I think the governments the governors made that very clear that the enforcement is going to be from local control. And so we're taking that local control and saying this is what we believe is in the best interest of Well County Commissioner Freeman. We've talked a little bit about these guidelines that you're putting in place is safer at work that goes into effect of course This coming Monday. The importance of continued best practices when it comes to hygiene handwashing and hand sanitizer social distancing. How do you plan to communicate the ongoing importance of that well? We're going to continue to do what we've been doing. All along and has continued to everything will be on. Our web page will continue to put facebook posts out We're going to continue to have conversations weekly conversations with the mayor's which we've been doing for the last three weeks we've also Then Doing at the end of our board meetings on for the last three weeks on Wednesday since we haven't had public in the building instead of having public input we've been doing a live streaming we have conversations with the public we've been taking questions at Www ask the commissioners dot com. And we've been answering questions during that time. I think the other thing that we're intending to do is we're in the process right now of setting up a A town hall meeting Next week sometime where where all citizens can connect and have a conversation with. The commissioner's So we're GONNA continue to be out in front of this. We're going to continue to keep our citizens informed in the best way that we can which is social media and our webpages. Um We're GONNA continue to work with the with the mayors throughout Weld County and local businesses. I'm sure we'll get a number of phone calls from businesses with questions We're we'll be happy to answer. This question is the one thing we're not going to do is specifically tell you how to run. Your Business. We will continue to answer questions on guidelines but every business is going to have to make the determination of what works in their business and I think it really comes down to the end of the day it becomes a trust between the business and the consumer the consumer feels that what that businesses new and they feel safe going to that business they will and if they don't then they won't and I think it's GonNa be up to the business owners consumers to To be able to do that Mike How long do you this safer at work practice these guidelines staying in effect? Because I know it's hard not to look ahead but the Greeley stampede June. I've been getting a lot of questions about that does this does this help. The chances of having really Stanford or do you see this as more short term. Let's just getting starting to reopen. Well I think this is. The good thing started reopened. And more. You know we're going to continue to look at the data and hopefully we see things continue along in a positive way. And and as you move forward you'll be able to open things up more I think that you know I can't speak for the stampede but I I think I think the stampede is going to be an issue because I you know I think everything that you're seeing is right now. You'RE NOT WANNA groups of more than ten. That eventually as we move forward moves to fifty moves to fifty. I'm GONNA find it highly unlikely that you're going to see huge gatherings whether that's in stadiums or or you know arenas or those kinds of things probably for a substantial length of time you've probably until there is a vaccine or or some kind of You know Wait a key to eliminate the disease so I just. I don't see those large gathering things anytime in the near future but I like I said I can't speak for the stampede week I I don't know what they're gonNA do for sure and make these guidelines that are in place. We're talking about him. I know the press release just went our issuing a one as well but really looking through these. They're really not that far off of the the the order and the recommendation from the governor but again just not picking as you put in there Winners and losers to sum it up for the guidelines. It's really a lot of common sense stuff of of keeping yourself healthy. You know I I. I've been on your radio station times over the last month or so ten and I think the one thing that I've said every single time and that is If you're vulnerable and you don't feel safe stay at home if you have symptoms or your six stay home and at the end of the follow the physical sneaky things and most importantly of all do what we do. Best in wealth ninety use common sense that the keyword. That's the key word of the day. That's the keyword going forward use common sense and I think that we can all get through this in a way that makes sense and also be able to go ahead and operate businesses and and get people back to work and get businesses back operating and Let's let's let the guy would you've got away? The risk on both sides and the economy is a huge risk as well as as well as the COPA team. Absolutely Commission for him. I know you and the board have been working very closely with Dr Mark Wallace Executive Director of the Weld County Department of Public Health and environment. And as you put this safer at work measure Together and put it into effect. I can't help but wonder did you have the conversation. And are there concerns that as we ease restrictions were going to see a rise in the number of cove nineteen cases in West County that. That's a really good question because you know I think part of part of what we're seeing is I think what determines the number of new cases simply based on the number of people. You're testing so I to me. It's not the number of cases that are nearly as important to me as as as the other numbers which are hospitalizations infidelities and those numbers have not been increasing. Those numbers have been fairly steady. I think I think over the last I haven't seen the new numbers out today but over the last three days there's been to the towel from covert nineteen hospitals or not overwhelm I think we're in a good place with that and I think that I think we're probably going to see more positive tests. I just because we're doing more testing they're doing. They're doing a number of tests throughout the county as you do more test. You're going to have more positive result but you're also seeing a tremendous amount of negative results in those steps as well. I think no it absolutely is my and as we talk with Commissioner Mike Freeman as the the county commissioners make the announcement they they are implementing safer work best practices for reopening businesses. All businesses will be able to open on Monday with With guidelines. Put into place on that commissioner. We appreciate your time today. Is there anything else that we may have missed that you want to highlight with this? Guideline I think that pretty much covers it. I just want to throw that out one more time for anybody with questions out there Please please send it to us. And asked the commissioners that will dot com. We'll be compiling those questions and we'll and we'll get them answered but I think at this time Just gives people You know get get businesses over the weekend Friday and over the weekend to kind of prepare for whether this is. I'm sure that there will be a lot of businesses. That are possibly not ready to open on Monday. Maybe they won't open to tell a week from Monday. But they're gonNA need to do at their own pace their own speed but with the ability to use these guidelines in a way that keeps their employees safe and keeps the consumer safe. I think that's the key to this whole thing absolutely commissioner. Appreciate your time on this evening and I know we'll be talking with you soon and again. Thank you for joining us. Thank you guys thanks. That is Well County Commissioner chairman. Mike Freeman is letting US know the safer at Guidelines that are going into place and Obviously big news because that means Everything at the moment and got it. Got A text here. Does this include restaurants open being open? It does but again it's still staying in those Those ten people or less kind of those guidelines Gail let's take a break here when we come back on the other side. We'll jump into our thoughts and and kind of breakdown lot information given thereby commissioner Freeman. We'll get our thoughts and our takeaways highlight some of the important things there in the first segment and then we'll actually get with the mayor. John Gates later on in the program as well. Don't go anywhere. You're listening to no co- now right here on thirteen ten. Kfi Get your day started right with up-to-date news weather and sports mornings with Gail. Six Am to nine am weekdays and thirteen ten. Kfi Back into a special edition of no co now. Thanks for joining us here on thirteen ten. Kfi I am tanner. Swint Grand Gayle Fallon with mornings with Gail joining me as well a lot of informational a lot to unpack. That will have to get through with what Commissioner Freeman. Just let us know about the safer at work guidelines the first question and engaged. I'M GONNA open this up to you as well. I'm getting I mean I know there's a ton of questions we're going to get through but the first questions I'm instantly getting are what about bars. What about restaurants and there is still a little bit of gray area right but it's like this at least allows them to say. Hey we can. We can open it up to a certain amount of number and it looks like they're trying to stick around ten people or fewer but that's the first question is bars and restaurants. Because I know people are waiting ready to do that. Oh my goodness yeah. We've been stuck at home for far too long and again as you said. There's just so many details in that so much to get through on if I'm not mistaken tanner. This is up on our website right. Yes yeah we just released it. We've got press release with with along with the actual safer at we're guidelines as well. Yeah and a lot of the guidelines are things that you already know things that you are already doing here is what I so appreciate about all of this. The Juxtaposition between the Weld County Board or the board of County Commissioners with their safer at work initiative and governor jared police with his safer at home plan. Both of course unveiling this Monday. Yeah there's there's no doubt that that was that was purposely entitled this and. I think it was a coincidence standard. I'm you know I'm not going to have my conspiracy theory. I think we're going to look at the facts here and the fact of the matter is that along with most things the Weld County is is ready to let let the businesses decide. What's best for them? So we're going to continue to gather more information on this but gail my main takeaway is that they're leaving it to the business owner. They're leaving it also to the consumer because consumers feel safe right. You won't be going to these places it's up to you instead of okay. We get it. We're in uncharted territory. Where we're in untravelled waters. I mean however you want to describe it and we were willing to take a little bit of guidance until it got pretty onerous at some points. Course wasn't like what we saw in Michigan with Governor Gretchen. Whitmer who was saying you can't buy grass seed and you can't buy garden hoses no boat of it has a motor for. Heaven Sakes but what I love about this is the government is no longer picking ASA Commissioner Freeman said winners and losers because when it came to well those who were essential and non essential. Well that always kind of stay. It was just a kind of a sticking point for me. Yeah no it did it. It rained through. And and it's completely you know that's that's it's completely fair as we continue talking here on. Nocona about the eighth or at work a guidelines put into place by Weld County and as. We're working our way through. This was released right when we came on air. We were lucky enough to break this story and get Commissioner Freeman on right out the bat but the wording here unless y Gail. I'm going to get your thoughts to the verbiage. Try to limit group gathering sizes indoors to ten or less even when ensuring social distancing. So I mean to me the the were there is try. We'RE NOT GONNA WE'RE NOT GONNA bust your chops if it gets over that Indoors try and limit to that at ten or less that also opens up Patios for restaurants. What does that start to look like? So there's a lot going to be a lot of follow up questions but that's the verge that I point to talking about. Bars and restaurants is try to limit group gatherings yeah when it goes to our personal liberties our freedoms our constitutional rights. Well let's just say they were in place seriously at risk and the thing that I love that the Board of Weld County Commissioners has done here said okay. We are not going to tell you you're safer at home if you're not sick. Bottom line is use. Commonsense continued to do social distancing. Continue to wash your hands. Don't go to work if you're sick. And they're leaving it up to us to exercise the amount of responsibility that we have to to keep things on the right track. And that's what I think. A lot of people have been been asking for and looking for and the L. A. Welcome sigh of relief from a lot of businesses. I know that. And that's the main sticking point again is that you still have the right. That's what you know and I'm not going to get preachy on this. We're going to provide the facts. But that's what this country is built upon is right to choose and so if you if you still feel like you're at risk and you still want to take these necessary precautions. Keep doing that. Because it's not like any commissioner Freeman even said it's not like we're going to be gathering in thousands of people crowds or anything like this. It's just being responsible and still giving people the opportunity to keep the business alive absolutely and you know whatever. The normal will be whatever's the new normal will be well that remains to be seen but at least thanks to the board of well county commissioners were moving in the right direction. Yeah we'll talk more about the guidelines will talk about what we see the possible repercussions could be coming down from the state office. What this all has but next we want to talk with Mayor John Gates. He'll be joining us to go through. What city of Greeley is going to be doing with this as well? So don't go near you're listening to know presented by PDC energy right here on thirteen ten KFI thirteen ten K. K. preps radio is northern. Colorado's home for the past high school coverage. Welcome back into no co now special edition here on thirteen ten. Kfi thank you for joining us as big news coming out of the county. Commissioner's Office of the safer at work guidelines coming into play Gayle Fallon morning mornings with Gail joining me as well and I'm getting a lot of tax asking about a lot of specific businesses. What does this mean for restaurants bars? churches was the next one and actually did Just get a did confirm with with Commissioner Freeman is that those specific guidelines are being worked on that. They should be looking for those soon. So there's GonNa be more information coming out but we just wanted to get out there and get ahead of this and joining us. Now is a great friend of the station is mayor. John Gates Mayor. Thanks for taking some time and joining us. Obviously this is some big news set to go and release throughout Weld County of businesses being able to reopen on Monday. It is thank you ten. Okay Oh good evening by the way it strikes me as odd to be talking to you both in the east. Good morning exactly good morning. Yeah no good. It's good to be with you. And yes. This is definitely that news coming out of well. County Saturn in well and. That's exactly what I wanted to go with Mayor Gates when you had this conference call early this morning. I know that this is when these conversations really started to expedite really started to fly. What was the kind of General Reaction? Right off the bat when this even this proposition and talks this happening Started to take place you know. I was not able to make the call the commissioner said with weld mayors. I had another commitment. I did speak to all the commissioners about two thirty six after noon. A believe I've not read the order. It actually just hit my email and I was just starting to read it when you call Having spoken to the commissioners I am aware of what's going to be in the order and And and have a general context. I have not had the opportunity as of yet to converse with any of our city council mayor gates. I can't help but think just based on the content of our previous conversations in the morning and Mayor Gates will be joining me Tomorrow morning as well. I think we decided on what thirty five right God. Here's what I wanted to ask. You know it's funny as we have endured all up the changes all of the upheaval in our lines and well the compromise of the Weld County at Konami. Of course the global economy the state's economy The bottom line is that we hear this mantra over and over and over again this We are together apart. Well I find it very reassuring that you have the Board of Weld County Commissioner saying no we are together we will get through this together and being together and exercising good choices were not picking winners and losers. Very much agree with you. You know the fact is that what officials are having to make tough decisions than ever during this pandemic and the commissioners made a decision that it was likely very tough on. You know I've been involved Eight years as a city councilman and then third year as mayor. And and and I would say as I think almost any Elected officials especially in about two deficient leader. Which say the decisions we've had to make during this are far greater than any of the others that we've had to make so I'm guessing the commissioners made a decision. That was a very tough one for him. And and the key to your to your question. Gail is that. There is not a one-size-fits-all model to address this situation and I think the many many people when they hear what the content of the Commissioner's border. They're going to believe that they've just opened the floodgates and really that's not accurate I think they have Espoused much what I have done both now and on my social media page that we need to do this. Slow gradual responsible with a high degree of common sense. And and that's really what they're saying and I'm guessing when I digest disorder when we hang up that Reading that won't change my opinion that in any way shape or form speaking with Mayor John Gates here mayor of Greeley. And you're exactly right this. This order that comes into place of these guidelines are just giving everybody the opportunity to work businesses at a safe and a in a responsible distance and doing those things responsibly mayor in some of our conversations. We talked about how people really did. We followed the guidelines and followed what was put in place. It almost seems like people are itching to get going this leaving it up to consumers and to the individual on if they feel safe to attend these things Really think that this will probably be a positive move and could possibly see other counties following along with this I think. With a high degree responsibility and commonsense ex exactly right the commissioners conversation with me earlier revolved around the fact that many businesses may not be ready to reopen Many citizens may choose to not patronize businesses. Quite yet. Because they don't feel safe and that's going to be one of personal opinion and folks exercise whatever Came in and they want to in that regard so I mean it's it's slow paced. I think I think rushing local businesses and haphazard fashion Will Not be the responsible way to open things up. The commissioners agree with that and I think we have to give our citizens The ability to utilize commonsense and make decisions for their cell for themselves about what they think is safe and what is not safe. And I'm guessing the restaurants that maybe hold a hundred or going to recognize affecting next Monday. They're not going to allow nor do they want a hundred patriots in that. Restaurant situation. That would cause more community spreads so it does. It revolves around personal responsibility. And I think that that's a factor of the commissioners orders going to say when I have a chance to read it here. Well I can't help but wonder. Shouldn't it revolve around personal choice? Isn't that what this nation's all about it it it absolutely should. I mean it's You you take the issue of You know wearing masks to very long time that our communities will told not to wear mass and then they became a priority and in my ventures Where I need to be out in public. There's sort of a mixed bag about those. That are wearing masks. And those aren't as long as they're not An executive order by governor which they were not there are certain people. That aren't going to wear masks and that's one of personal personal opinion personal pleasure. Yeah there's no doubt about it mayor gates as we continue to talk about the safer at work guidelines and and again. I know that there is no game plan. There is no playbook for anything Married you see it with the chance of when you get to go through these guidelines. Do you see The city of Greeley making any adjustments to personalize what might fit the city better. Or do you see this probably in your conversations with the commissioners that you're gonNA fall right along with this and and this is going to be the guideline for city of Greeley as well. No it's too early. To tell I think the order Is actually going to be or is in fact countywide which might take that discretion where for municipalities honoree debit. There are. I know they were able to listen in with the Commissioner Chair Freeman The issue of maybe community REC centers came up. And I think it's a in my conversation just a short time ago city manager. It's not anticipated that we're gonNA open our recreation centers right away And that would of course outside the order. But they're going to be some discretions that municipalities will be able to Lavon regarded and on some may push back on the order. I just don't know at this point there. It sounds like a nanny we may maybe having some technical glitches there with Gail. So I know commissioner a Mayor Gates. Thank you so much. We'll get her reconnected here but I know that there. There are a ton of different people out there that have so many varying views on this that this guidelines really just again it all goes back to the right of people to to choose whether they want to use these businesses. And that's been one of your messages all along as well. Yes yes it has I take. I think that our our residents will be cautious and And you know that the outcome may not be great if they're not cautious and I think the commissioner talked about the fact that they don't want the hospital counts to rise and nobody wants anybody to be to be sick as a result of these decisions so I think personal responsibility will be great way to move forward gates It's interesting because that technical glitch goes to the question that I was going to ask you. I know you like so many others have been well. Telecommuting using zoom for meetings and it goes to the question once again personal choice personal responsibility and I wonder if When you look at the city council I imagine that you'll Kinda poll city council member and say. Are you comfortable comfortable doing meetings again? And if not will. They had the opportunity to participate via zoom. Yeah that's A. That's certainly something haven't had the opportunity even think about it. point It's it's my anticipation that we will continue to do our meetings. We assume that it's actually. I think we have the bugs worked out. It's pretty functional. But that's certainly a decision that that our city council and many other governing bodies bodies Mike Way Moving forward We can in fact pretty well. Socially distanced on our diet The issue becomes Council meetings which may generate a large crowd and it would be hard to socially distance them and they could really actually have more involvement in immediate via zoom. So Y- that's that particular question isn't super high on my list but I just put it on my list because it is going to be pertinent discussion. Move forward absolutely mayor. Thank you so much for your time this evening and I know you'll be back on with gail to go more in depth tomorrow morning and once you get a chance to work your way through these guidelines but we as always appreciate you making yourself available for us. Thanks for having me on. Have a pleasant evening. We'll talk to you tomorrow thank you. This sounds like a plan. That is mayor John Gates and kind of sounding like he's right in line with everything. I don't think there's really would. There wasn't really going to be any doubt about that. But I'll tell you what let's take a break here on. Oko Now we'll come back.

Kfi K walk back into Noko. Now I'm tanner Sh- went in the special edition and that may have been the fastest hour of my life. Joining me is Gayle Fallon Mornings with Gail resuming tomorrow at six. Am In gale house. A lot of a lot of information that we just got to tell you what we packed a lot in in that first our boy a lot of valuable information as news is breaking fast and furious. There's no doubt about it and I did. I'm getting texts and questions about what? What could these ramifications be know? And there's going to be those right off the bat you know rumors flying around and about how is governor? Police going to going to all those things. And I'm still texting back and forth with Commissioner Freeman here. And He. He fully expects that that governor polls will try to a intimidate them Y Weld County with a maybe sanctions of taking away funding. But there's no there's been none of that announced yet. Obviously this is brand new information So so we we expect that there could be a push back from the there will be state push back but gail what are your thoughts on on the ramifications of what could come down from today. Well I am working some sources. Some anonymous sources as you are as well Via text this morning or there you go. There's your this morning this evening. Go right but Yeah my understanding is this is from a pretty reliable source that the governor is threatening counties. That don't obey that. Do not obey the safer at home order with financial sanctions. So that backs up your source as well right and I know I know for a fact. There's been nothing specific so far in what it would look like or how that would look like and again. This is a pretty quick response from Weld County saying we're not going to be. We're not following the state guidelines. We're going to allow us for everybody so we could very well see Gale some of these more rural counties. Start to fall in line with what well done. I think that the commissioners are setting some sort of a precedent at least and there should be counties that will follow well and I think that we have seen that in the oil and wars with the passage of Senate. Bill went eighty-one Weld County saying no. We won't back down there. No stranger to a tussle with Governor Jared Polis and so wouldn't surprise me whatsoever to see other counties as you said Tanner follow suit with Weld County but the thing that just is so incredible to me is once again restoring to the people their freedoms and their liberties our constitutional rights and that is exactly what the Board of Weld County. Commissioners has done With this saver at work Move on their part to go into effect. Of course this Monday. I April twenty-seventh and this is the first announcement there's going to be in the next twenty four to forty eight hours. There's going to be so much information coming out on this. And I know you'll be having a ton of experts on a lot of those elected officials again but the word that you used about governor polls and trying to intimidate the Weld County Quarter Commissioner Board of Commissioners. Excuse me that was the term that that Commissioner Freeman said they they. They will try to intimidate us. But it's not gonNA work You know I mean if past performance is any indicator of what the future holds. I can't help the think that the board of County Commissioners will say. Nah If governor Jerry pull us does try to take retaliatory action. It's going to be interesting as we were in the middle of a special edition of Noko. Now I know we'll be back personally and O'CONNELL beyond from nine to ten but gayle fallon with mornings with Gail six to nine tomorrow morning. We'll be unpacking a lot of this. But the the main takeaways that there's GonNa be way more information being introduced but these guidelines are allowing all businesses to open with guidelines. Set following the social distancing and really following a lot of the safer at home safe home guidelines gail but it's just not selecting which businesses get to adhere adhere to those. Yeah and I think that is what is so significant because we saw for example the protests across the country we saw the protests in Denver. Because they got to the point where far too many of us were saying. You know what you are encroaching on some very sacred trusts our constitutional rights our liberties and our freedom center. We know that the government God Love Him They're kind of like a camel with the nose under the tent. And sometimes you give them an inch. You don't get that inch back. In fact you lose a mile right. It's I know there's a ton of people that have questions about it and goodness gracious. There's a there's a lot to unpack here gale. I'll open it up to you for for some final thoughts. Final comments on what we're seeing with this safer at work. Guideline that is being implemented effective. Monday April twenty-seventh in Weld County. Well once again when I so appreciate it about about The Board of Weld County Commissioners Commissioners issuing this safer at work initiative which will go into effect April twenty-seventh apparently apparently reportedly well any or could be called conjecture Two the governor's Chagrin is the fact that once again. It's up to us to make this work. Be Responsible and again. Tanner like you. I don't WanNa get all preachy. But y'all know what to do it's just exercise common sense if you want to get back to any semblance of normalcy and do it quickly as quickly as possible. Of course it's going to be very faced process. We understand that we know we might not get back to whatever. The new normal is going to look like for months but the bottom line is it's our decision. It's our choice. Not The government's and you know tomorrow on my show I would love to hear from you as the consumer from you as a business owner on the heels of this news from the Board of Weld County Commissioners. What you think about it. Because I've heard from so many business owners small business owners that are struggling in weld county throughout the state around the country The bottom line is they are. They're on their last legs aside and the only way they can survive. I mean they're they're they're digging deep. They're borrowing money from everybody taken out loans and the only way they can survive is to get back to work and they're happy to do whatever it is. They have to do to make it work. Now there's no doubt about it. And that was the whole premise. Of how the Noko? No now show started is has our business is going to be operating. Because we'RE GONNA get another wave now that that I know tonight they're gonNA start implementing hit. This is how we're going to do things. This is how we're going to go so again that. Kfi text line or whether it's gail show my show. Whatever the case is three one nine nine six you can text. The text line were shared between the two of us. Have some answers for you released. We'll We'll pretend that we've got some answers or or talk to somebody smarter than US right. Ooh That's what I do all the time. That's my claim to fame mine. People smarter than me and that's not hard to do that as well. Gail. Thank you so much for tonight. Thanks for being flexible. Appreciate it. We'll hear from you tomorrow morning at six.

August 31st: Weld County Commissioner Mike Freeman and Director of Reporting at 9NEWS Chris Vanderveen

"Northern Colorado never stops neither do we This is no co now presented by Shanin nation-states. Here's Tanner's went. Good Monday afternoon northern Kinda well command to the out of collusion. Specialists Studios. I am tanner Sh- went in. This is no cone our Ryan Kelly doing the production work as always and man to we have a loaded show for you today about four twenty, fifteen minutes. We will have a Weld County Commissioner Chairman Mike Freeman on the program to talk about what's going on and what are you doing back there what is what's going to the lights are messing all up already come on our right? Of Mike, Freeman on to talk about to give an update on the county where we stand from an economic standpoint, as well as Govan kids back in school as we continue to see a couple of schools. That are having to quarantine parts of their student body and their teachers as well because of positive cases. We'll talk with Chris Vander veen about US some trouble down in Denver again. The CDC released a statistic today and it's been grabbing headlines and rightfully. So it should saying that only six percent. Of the deaths label covid nineteen were purely just Cova nineteen. So that means ninety four percent of the deaths. Were had other other symptoms. This is what I in and this has just been going crazy I mean people have been sharing this and you get one side saying well, this is this is ridiculous. Everything's still shut down this which I tend to agree with but that's not point here. You have the other side of the saying you got to protect everybody. which is also true. But let's dive into that a little bit and we'll talk more about it with Kris Vander veen the director of reporting from nine news but this goes to the point. So again, reading more about this at WBZ. Dot Com So, about six percent of it. So what what was sixes six feet away six percent that would have been that's only about nine thousand Americans. That is the only cause. or no underlying health conditions that have died from this. Okay that seems I mean. That's a lot further off than what we've the total number that we've been seeing which is one hundred and eighty, three, thousand deaths. So what does it mean? What does it? What does this mean? So the actual wording from the CDC says for six percent of the death cove nineteen was the only 'cause mentioned for deaths with conditions or causes in addition to cove nineteen on average there are two point six additional conditions or causes per death. So that means that they had something else now was it cove nineteen push them probably right. But again, that's not where was it like severe case of diabetes that death was imminent? anyways we don't know and we probably will never know. I think that where this goes and I think we're now that we have all this data and it's starting to change. And you're starting to see corrections. The argument to be made here is that okay. Now tell me why we're not just quarantining the at risk and that's where I think a lot of people are are at you know. We get the covert Israel cove is dangerous to a select group of people. And that group of people when when ever have we quarantined the healthy we never have. Because that's what you see. Economic Star. You see no economic growth. You see a ton of mental health issues from this because when you're healthy in a disease that that as it is the only the only illness, the only know underlying conditions. Kills about six percent of the total Wesley Nine Thousand Americans. So you're gonNA see headlines like this that are going to go all over the place only six percent this and and well, ninety, four percent of. Those people still died from Cova nineteen but they had underlying problems. Yes. This just circles back around to that bigger issue of why did we start with? Corning everybody and why instead of that courting the at risk so we're going to dive into that more. We'll talk with Kris van veen. We've got our poll question up. Nancy Pelosi thinks that Joe Biden president trump shouldn't debate. What do you think? WanNa hear you nine seven zero three five three thirteen ten, nine, seven, zero, three, five, three thirteen tanner Texan that KFC text line at three, one, nine, nine, six, three, one, nine, nine, six, and he new textures you can subscribe by Texting Kfi to that number. So go go and let me know what you think on that people chiming in early we'll get to that. But first, let's get to news for Noko this coming out of the Colorado, and by miles bloom heart a loved one woman shoots a neighbor over parenting dispute. It's crazy. It was happened at a an apartment complex Ryan's looking at me like, are you kidding me? Yeah, she's jailed on suspicion of attempted first degree murder after police say she shot a neighbor multiple times Sierra Marie. Kelly is the thirty six year old. They lived in apartments across from each other. Thira apparently did not like the way that the twenty four year old female that she shot was. Liking, how she was raising your child over parenting child the pro. This is what the preliminary investigation revealed a new as the victim and suspect our neighbors. The victim was parenting her four year old child. So Kelly who also faces allegations of first degree assault on the case does not have a previous can criminal history Colorado so just I mean. It's just absurd. How does this get to that point? I? Mean it's one thing like I mean kids it and how parenting is a sensitive issue right? Like you don't want people jumping in and telling you how to raise your child I get that but. For it to get that escalated I mean there's going to be more details that come out of this I know but how can you be so upset about how someone is raising their child that you would go and shoot them I mean unless there is abuse going on or something along those lines. Then that's a completely different story but this, there's no mention of that. So we'll we'll keep you updated on that but that happened on in loveland over the weekend. The camera peak fire right twenty, three, thousand acres, and a long way from containment officials say we knew this was going to be we knew this was what's going to happen. We knew that the they're working right now it's in such a unique area that they're just working to prevent structure damage and obviously loss of property for people who live up in the area but we're not gonNA see this number go down anytime soon, the weather has helped a little bit. It really has light precipitation higher humidity. There is a little do and frost this morning. which was crazy right? I. Mean I was just out of nowhere boom it hip not mad at it at all but it's GonNa Start to slow the movement as a long ways but. They're talking here with Russ long out of the Colorado and he wrestling's an operations chief with the National Incident Management Organization, and he says, we don't anticipate showing containment on this fire in the near future so. Going back same rhetoric. Same thing that we've been talking about we're probably not gonNA see containment on this for quite a while and you're going to continue to grow But as everybody I mean you can just walking outside. You can start to see the moon a little bit. Now I you know you can sort of see these stars and and it's it's starting to clear up just a little bit. All right last year this coming out of the Tribune women for trump rally drowns over two hundred supporters to Greeley. This from Tamar remark ARD this happened on Forty Seventh Avenue by Weld County Garage, and they had some really key names you know talking and trying to organize this. Show you know some rally some some enthusiasm for the group. Barbara Kirk Meyer was there of course she had some really strong words in regards to the people that were there and shaming to. So a couple of the quotes here bide needs to come out of the basement Kirk Myers. said, that's one of the excerpts. Our president loves his country and he will build it back to a great economy Kirk Meyer proclaimed this election will decide do we save the American dream? Do we save millions of jobs? Do we pro protect law abiding citizens or will Joe Biden in the radical left destroy America? So this kind of This kind of starts to put it in the light and it was a conversation that it was having Audet right before we came in here was Is this the most important election in history and I I tend to say, yes, because you've never seen any, we've never seen anything going on like this from co vid. This pandemic from protests after George Floyd in every state. Every state United States we haven't seen that in forever maybe ever. The social injustice, the riots, the the the explosiveness of where our country as I say yes and so that's one of the questions i WanNa talk to Mike Freeman about on the other side is. Has He. Seen an election like this is this the most important election and what are the ramifications if if things don't. Don't go smoothly. Because that's a real possibility i. mean these candidates could protests the outcome and they could go through all of that but So in poll question is Nancy Pelosi. Doesn't think that these guys should debate Charlotte chiming in a lot of yeses I mean. This is clearly something that they're they're wanting to see. But let's let's play I what Nancy Pelosi had to say. I wouldn't I wouldn't legitimize a conversation with him nor a debate in terms of the presidency of the United States. Now, I know that the bind campaign thinks a different way about this but I just I thought what he did in the. Two Thousand Sixteen was disgraceful Stalking Hillary Clinton like that I was disappointed that the press say go back to your station. You're not here on this stage you you have your own podium she has hers. So I think that he'll probably act in a way that is beneath the dignity of the presidency he just every day but I think he will also be little what the debates are supposed to be about, and they're not to be about a skulduggery on the part of somebody who has no. Respect for the office he holds I don't think that he should dignify that conversation with Donald Trump you can have you asked any questions both of them just take their own stage for any number of. Conversations about any subjects hold them accountable what are they proposing? What is their vision? Where does their knowledge? How are we going to get it done? How do they connect with the American people? But that'd be a conversation with the American people not a an exercise at skulduggery. Thank you all very much. We'll. That's what. She's pretty much saying have a debate, but don't have it in person like don't have them. Together let the people go and and trying to rummage through this world of media with so many different things going on. The, what she's asking for is a debate. Also, skulduggery might be my new favorite word I didn't know what that was. It's underhanded or unscrupulous behaviour trickery. So she used it twice, which was impressive Richard saying, yes he believes that they do need to debate Charlotte is jet jet yes Thomas. Yes and Brady saying yes as well. So I, mean, that's just I don't see awaited this the. That Biden could do this and not face. Tremendous backlash from it. Because it would look like he was running at this point, it would look like he was running from president trump. And he can't afford that at the moment. He cannot afford that he in a time as critical as this people are looking for that strong leadership. And if that's the case if that was something that. Biden would be doing. All man it would not look good and let me be clear on this to that. Biden has. To debate president trump but Nancy Pelosi who was probably at as of right now, the the most powerful Democrat. Saying that had I mean it's got ramifications she knew what she was doing. Joe Biden plans on debating president trump. Three debates scheduled between the two. President trump pushing to try and get one moved up before the early voting period. So that people before they can go and cast can here at least one debate between the two. But the early voting period isn't going to change a whole lot of split ticket voters minds because they're gonNa away and smart voters will wait and hear out the debates they'll hear out what happens and then vote on on. November third. So I don't know how big of a difference that much of a difference that will make but that's what's going on. We'll continue to keep you updated on the poll and what people are are, what are they saying you want to get on the conversation we're on facebook it's just no co now on facebook right four, nineteen the time. Let's take a break. We'll come back on the other side While County Commissioner Chairman Mike Freeman joins the program right here Noko now on North Dakota's Voice Thirteen, ten K of K. It's party northern Colorado's fourth thirteen ten KFI K.. The Block Party Wednesdays from Ford, at ten PM. Welcome back into Noko. Now presented by the Jeanine agencies four, twenty, four, the time on this Monday afternoon I m tanner Schwendt. Excited to be here in the articles in specialist studios. It's been a minute since we've been able to catch up with Weld, County Commissioner Chairman Mike Freeman but Mike is on the line now and commissure. We've got kids back in school and we've Kinda got back to some sense of normalcy. How is the county looking right now? Yeah. Well, good afternoon tanner. It's great to be back on the show. Yeah. It's great to see kids back in school You know everybody all the school districts are you know doing things a little bit differently they're not all doing the same thing, but you know that's their choice. That's why they have locally elected school boards to make the decisions in their school district. So but it is good news to see kids back in school It's really important that they're back in school it. It's it's such. It's such a devastation tha to not be there. The learning that they missed by not being there I don't think these kids would ever catch up if they didn't get back in school and get that Opportunity I. Know You served on school boards throughout your career commissioner what was what was take us through what you would imagine some of these school boards were talking about I mean, obviously, there was no right answer. There is no way of pleasing everybody but what do you think these decisions came down to and Have you seen any plans maybe that have worked better than others so far? You know it's it's really it really does come down to one size doesn't fit. All you know is one of the things that was most frustrating to me when I was on a school board and and that was was passed in Denver that you know one size fits all and it just because it makes sense in Denver doesn't mean that it makes sense in in Colorado or Cortez. Colorado. So you've gotta be able to have school boards and superintendents working together with their community do what makes the best? What works best for that community and and all these communities are different in these small communities maybe have A. Lot fewer kids in the district and whatever, and so they've got to be they've just it. It's a lot of hard work and and and a lot of input with with You know the the board and their parents and the community to just look at what makes the most sense, and that's really the role of the school board and I think they do I. Think they just do an outstanding job doing that and figuring out what works best their particular situation? Yeah. There's no doubt about it and I think there was a little bit of uniformity. In the aspect of having some at least some remote learning possibilities But obviously, we see smaller school districts able to get those kids back into the classrooms and I don't think. June really overstate. The importance of having some sort of social interaction as different as it may be these kids needing some sense of normalcy. Well well, they do and and you know, and the thing about it is you know maybe maybe at a certain age, you can make some sense out of being able to do things online learning. But I find it extremely difficult to believe that kindergarten first grade second grade third grade. Sure. That that that can actually happen in a successful manner online The attention span is not their parents are busy. They need be with other kids and they need hands on teachers. Teachers do an absolutely phenomenal job, but they need to be able to see these kids and look them in the eye and know and know what their struggles are and I just don't see how you can make that happen online. We'll county commissioner chairman Mike, Freeman joining the program commissioner obviously economics, and how the Economy The weld county economy's been doing is is at the forefront of a lot of people's. Attention right now, and I just wanted to give you a couple of minutes here to talk about where we sit as an economy Ariza as a county rather and how you see starting to pull back out of this thing. Well. I think we're I think we're starting to come back obviously You know it takes a long time to build an economy up and you can shut it off in a heartbeat and then it's GonNa take a while to get back to where you were before. It's not like just flipping a switch and so I think that businesses are are beginning to recover. As we continue to move forward. I think people are more comfortable about you know going out and and actually doing business and eating in restaurants and I think it's one of those things. It's just GonNa take some time, and I know we've got a lot of businesses that are still struggling. We're probably going to have a number of businesses that that don't successfully navigate. This and that's extremely unfortunate. But you know I think that I think we're on our way on the road to recovery and and as we can you know as we continue to go on you know we're continuing to see some positive tests you know every day but we're still sitting in the same place we've been for for a while we. That Tooth Potala in Weld County since July first enforced since June first. So we haven't had we haven't had for talent in a while and I think that's good. That's good news and and obviously we're not overwhelming hospitals and that's also good news. So but you're GONNA continue to you're gonNA continue to see positive tests that's just the reality of the situation. Like we've talked about really tests are not the. Subject of concern we're talking about positivity rate an hospitalizations really the key factors here. How do we look ahead stacking up with the the rest of the counties and the the rest of the State House Weld County doing I what fight economic recovery, but as well as as number of cases and excuse me not number of cases but number of hospitalizations and number of fatalities we're doing extremely well, and we'll county we I mean we like I said we've had to Talibans in Weld County since July first. So we're doing we're doing extremely well. In World County we're continuing to monitor twelve hospitals, the twelve hospitals all the way from San Saint, Anthony's north all the way up to Greeley. So there's twelve hospitals well, county citizens may maybe in and you know and we're seeing we're seeing numbers in the range from fifteen to twenty five people total in those twelve hospitals you know that with covert. So we're doing, we're doing extremely well on both of those cases, will county, commissioner, chairman, Mike Freeman joining the program commissioner on Sunday we saw something Kinda cool. Happened it was. A women for trump rally happening on forty seventh avenue Obviously, you might consider her a dear friend Barbara Kirk Mar had some strong words. What did you take away from? I'm sure you've read the article at least heard a little bit about what happened on Sunday what are your takeaways? I think that's great. I mean obviously know women have have a real reason to support Donald Trump I mean he actually got the unemployment for women. The lowest it's ever been You know he built a strong economy for women as well. I i. think that you know more power tool and I support them one hundred percent obviously obviously on a huge huge trump supporter at this point in time we need to continue to go forward and and and get reelected so we can continue to have a strong economy and we. Can have safety and we won't be funded police and all these crazy things that are coming out of the socialist side of the other party and so That's really that's really what this election comes down to the on. Do you want a free United States of America where you were you have the individual ability and right to do what the constitution says or or do you want to look like a socialist country? Well, it commissioner I don't know if you saw this but this was actually our poll question today Nancy. Pelosi coming out and saying that if. She was to give advice to Joe Pine she would say not to debate, and we know that debating is is such a critical role in all of politics from from you know you the school board all the way all the way up. So what are your thoughts on on Nancy Pelosi's claims to not have debates happen for this election? Well, I'm I'm sure that it's in her best interest in Joe Biden's best interest to not debate because you know that he's not gonna he's not going to stand up very well, donald trump and the debate. However you know if I were the American people and there was a candidate that refused to debate because he's afraid to go out and actually talk about what his ideas are, which I don't think are very popular across most of this country that would be reason to not support somebody that refuses to debate but I'm not surprised that not only Nancy Pelosi the but a number of other people in the Democratic Party or suggesting not debate because it's probably not gonNa work out very well for him. Commissioners is the most important election we've ever seen as a country. But. I believe it is I believe it is I believe it I believe if the other side wins the United States America's we've always known it will cease to exist on on on very serious about that. When I say that we have got to we've got to have a country that supports law enforcement but doesn't raise taxes through the roof that doesn't destroy the economy that doesn't ban fracking. That's extremely important There's a lot. There's a lot of things in in. This in this platform of which essentially was Joe Biden essentially being overrun by Bernie, Sanders that except on a socialist platform for for the future of the United States of America, and that is that is not going to be something that the citizens are going to enjoy Weld County, Commissioner Chairman Mike Freeman Commissioner. We appreciate your time as always anything else that the people of Weld County in northern Colorado need to know about how what the what the commission is doing at the moment. You know I think that we're we're moving forward. We're just getting ready to start into our budget process here in the next in the next couple of weeks and looking forward to putting that together over a three year budget processes. and the reason we're doing that is because we know we're going to be in good shape and twenty twenty one but we're going to use the excess that we have there to be able to bridge the gap at twenty, twenty two, which we know we're going to be way down on oil and gas production because what's up twenty twenty and hopefully get us. Into Twenty twenty twenty three when we start to see oil and gas production coming back and twenty, twenty, one oil and gas is always in two years to your rears as far as property tax revenue. So you know I think that we're in a position where fortunately we're not going to have to cut any services to any citizens in weld. County, We're going to be able to keep everybody employed in Weld County. We won't be having any any layoffs or any rifts or anything like that. So I think that once again, thanks to this board and previous boards and and the expertise that we have in our staff to be it'll have extremely fiscally conservative. Kinda keeps us in extremely good financial shape the. Best financial shape of any county in the state and we will continue on that track. Well, that's I. Mean that's always encouraging to hear commissioner and you know one of the things real quick. If you've got a minute here, one of the things that I wanted to talk to you a little bit about you reminded me of it, we're talking about the oil and gas. Governor police has come out and. Issued a cease fire from both sides of the oil and gas industry no more regulations going into place but there's also a committee that starting to form an end going to start making some decisions on that. How do you see this playing out? you know I think that your I think I think it's wishful thinking that you're not gonNA continue to see ballot measures against oil and gas it. It's just the nature it's it's in the nature of the environmental left that they will continue that they will continue to do that and and I think that as we saw with with the Senate bill. proposition one twelve, it was defeated across the state sixty forty, it lost in Weld County by a little over seventy five, twenty, five people support oil and gas. We need to have that I mean we wanted the whole point of this thing was to become energy independent and not rely on other countries that hate us why would we want to go back and the other direction and rely on other countries that hate us and the and the? The mere thought that we could actually be completely renewable energy at any time in the future is just preposterous especially when you actually think about it, you can't make solar panels or wind towers or anything out else without fossil fuel. So we still need oil and gas production now can we look at having some renewable on the side? Absolutely in the further we go without the better but we need to be honest with ourselves and know that fossil fuels extremely important and we need to stay energy independent in this country won't county commissioner. Chairman Mike Freeman Mike appreciate your time as always look forward to catching up with the again real soon. Downs get. Thanks Tanner. Thanks that his Wolf County Commissioner Chairman Mike Freeman. some strong words there and and and again, this is something that everybody's feeling I mean, no one is immune to the feeling of this this election and what's going into it and it's got it's got a lot of people's emotions really really high four, thirty, seven the time we do need to get a break. We'll come back on the other side talk with Chris Vander Veen Director reporting from nine news This is no co now presented by the J nine agencies. Let's get to the bottom of our news and weather. Center. Code now. Weekdays at four northern Colorado's voice. Thirteen ten KFI K. Back in this Monday afternoon out of collusion specialist studios. Obtain Schwendt. Ryan Kelly doing the production work as we continue to roll on I told you. We got a couple of VIP guests here. So let's get straight to it. It is Chris. Vander veen director of reporting from Nine News Chris Obviously, we saw cova numbers and the six percent. What is it with six in this pandemic six feet away six percent air? Some big headlines making way with the covid nineteen numbers and the the change that CDC made. It is I will. I'll be honest with you. It is frustrating frustrating number that I've been working on throughout the day. Because while to the simple appearance, that six percent something to CDC's putting out the suggesting that only six percent of the the total number of deaths. Caused by cove it, it is a gross mischaracterization of the numbers and I. think that's a that is a flaw that we need to address and doing that in our newscast later on today. But this idea there's there's this thing floating around they may be only less than ten thousand people have died from covid is is not how this works and I talked to Leeann Kelly who is a medical examiner down in Colorado Springs you know Passer County and he's sort of been at the. Forefront. Of Kobe numbers and I talked him for story today and the subject of the story is just just hold on a second take a deep breath and realize that you know maybe what you're reading is a mischaracterization what's going on will and I think people are sometimes so desperate to see good news and this would be good news in some sense of maybe this isn't as deadly as I thought. But but like you said that the mischaracterization people are still dying from Kobe have the underlying. Diseases that come along with the underlying problems that we've been saying from the beginning are going to be especially vulnerable to cove in nineteen, and it's not just a small percentage of people that are vulnerable. If you start to look into people with the in this country, and this country has a problem with chronic health conditions, it's close to half of the country is vulnerable to some certain chronic health condition that makes you more vulnerable to serious complications from covid. So that's sort of the issue and then Dr Kelly talks about this today this idea that like. If you think you're vulnerable chances are just going on math you may not be and there's loads of people, millions of people in this country with asthma with diabetes high blood pressure with heart conditions that put them increased risk of dying from covid doesn't mean that everyone's GonNa die doesn't mean we have to scare the heck out be absolutely not but let's be realistic about the numbers the numbers do say and with the numbers don't say well and I think that. I think that's an incredibly fair point along the way I, think you just see people blowing up headlines about the the six percent but again, this raises the question and a year I are in position to answer this. But this raises the question of why Cortina everybody instead of the people with those underlying conditions. But you mentioned a little bit a lot of people have those underlying condition. On these are legitimate questions, I think that we can ask are are we going to far as a society in limiting interactions and I? I'm not gonNA fall on either side of the argument here but I do believe that it is okay for the public say, Hey, wait a second. Are we pushing this? So four that were causing an impact, it is having an adverse impact, a larger percentage of population economically mentally those are legitimate questions that we can ask, but it's still you still got a base it in the truth and what's going on. Chris Vanderveer director of reporting from nine news of course, the numbers for Colorado just came out. We tend to be a pretty good pace. Pretty good track is as we have seen over the last couple of weeks. Yeah what's interesting is that the positivity rate and I look at a lot of I I look at the three day average repository remember positively is something you WanNa keep a low five percent and why as of today and I'm GonNa, look at my own numbers and make sure that I'm getting the precise number but we are at two point zero, seven percent for the three day average, which is very, very low. In fact, it's the lowest we've been since the start of this should we continue that number you wanna see go down and because it's very close to two percent. That's really where you WanNa be right now and that's incredibly good news as we talk about what's happening in the state and most of the other numbers, the hospitalizations and everything that come along with it should fall without as well. Correct. Yeah. I noticed there was a small increase in hospitalizations nowhere near that would cause any sort of panic or alarm really at all but you would expect because the positivity is so low that you would expect to see the hospitalizations really sort of stagnate where they're at right now are in fact, go down I would expect you'll see that throughout the week. Good news again when you look at it. Any way you look at it in Colorado that is good news Chris. We saw some more writing happening early in the weekend Friday evening in Denver What's the latest in the status of the riots and the protests that have been happening over? I think you're GONNA have a sort of watchful eye from not just us in the media, but from the police department and from people that are protesting some people that are protesting for for systemic change and some people are just protesting because they want to cause mayhem, and so you're gonna see that sort of behaviour i. think we saw some some problems in near the downtown area just east of downtown area on Friday night. A lot of that was expected. There's a lot of chatter online about what may or may not happen I. Think you're going to see that continue in the days and weeks to come, but you know lots of people sort of. Saying, okay. Where's this go and what does it all mean? You need new responses for many key political figures in terms of the the difference between the protests and the mayhem mention Oh, I think you're seeing more of a tendency from certain politicians particularly those on the democratic side to open up and say, look what we're. There is a difference between protesting and rioting. Now, what it all means is certainly up for somebody who's listening this determine on their own, what what they all mean are they being A sort of are are they trying to be legitimate and what they're saying and truthful or is it just that they're trying to pander to a certain particular? Whatever you can sort of make that judgment for yourself. You're seeing more of a tendency to particularly here in Denver because of what happened a week ago the mayor himself was coming in strongly said, look this is not okay. Property damage is not okay. You saw that more of a shift particularly on the democratic side within the last week and I I would expect that to continue as well. Chris Vander Veen Director of reporting again with nine news joining us here on no co now. Schools opening back up, and we're already seeing some having Cortina particular cohorts along the way. What are we seeing across the state? What are you really seeing you dig in because I know this a big story with a Lotta People I. Well, here's here's a couple of things I think you need to pay attention to when it comes to schools. One is that when you have That sort of closed down. You may have a great or small section of a great. That is quarantining doesn't close the whole school that is in essence how the system is supposed to work that you don't close the entire school because you've been doing coordinating and you haven't keeped cohort a for example, mingling with cohort P. and therefore somebody gets sick or needs to be quarantined in court a, it doesn't impact covert be. That's a good side. What I think is going to be challenging for schools moving forward is that can you keep it within control? Do the plans that you sort of setup in in? July and August do they really St-? Do they really help you out as? You start to see more cases or does your system start to fall apart and I think that's going to be a real challenge as we go into September for a number of schools in the state can they stay open with more limited cohorts that have to be quarantined but not close the entire school if they can do that, there will be some success, but that's going to be a huge challenge for schools that are open right now keep in mind my own daughter goes to Denver public schools she is not back in school she still she's learning remotely and they're they're not even talking about going back until October at the earliest. Yeah. It's been fascinating to watch talking with even. Political figures here, northern Colorado, the different decisions made by the school board's there's no easy answer. It is a tough daily decision and those numbers are going to change on a daily if not hourly basis and how they respond to it, and how quickly they can respond to. It is going to determine if they continue stay open or if you're going to start to. See Pockets and watch for that over the next week or so do you start to see some smaller schools or schools in general? I selected schools start to close down go back to remote learning or can the next week or two weeks go by without seeing a lot of that we're in a room that really really tough area right now where you expect to see. Will what's going to happen the next two weeks? I believe will be pretty pivotal in terms of how goes in late September and early October Kris, Van Arena director of reporting for nine news. Chris appreciate your time as always. Anything anything big that you've been working on it you can share with us. The game last night. Holy Cow.
