The moral barrels are definitely going to fill up. On all the rest of the the pipelines coming out of the box. I think that's where and this is. Where i sort of position myself of explaining the stuff that i think that the if you're watching the reduced production in wyoming and produced a couple hundred thousand barrels today in wyoming. But that's gonna decline so you will have less production wyoming. You're not gonna have so much of a decline in production colorado because of a federal regulations but really just because of a police regulations and the legislative pro- zone secular issues for so that's and that's been declining. Production is going to decline and sort of continue. So there's some you know you're going to have you're going to be able to do that. But released will county should secede from colorado and join wyoming. I was my county moffat. County was this. I think we're on like cnn. Longtime ago maybe two. Whenever the seceding thing was going on ten years ago whatever mike the town the county our from was the county. That was like on cnn. For wanting to secede and just because we touch were like we border with wyoming and so they just wanted to be like yep. We'll set a little little rectangle on the bottom to reserve for the decoration. Because i i'm going to bet if you put if you put it to weld county residents they want to be.

"Yeah if anything fasting. We'll have the exact equal opposite of fact so the. Yeah you make a very good point. I think that's a. That's a very good analogy. I wanted to ask you about something. I had worked for this piece this morning at six thirty five. A pretty in depth piece by alex bernez in the denver post basically making the point that are county level covert restrictions are not just data driven. They're not binary but politics come into play. Would you agree or disagree with that assessment. No i don't don't simplify colleague politic. I called a video allergy. It might ideology what's it my for is proper consent of the governed is the rule of law is proper. Sortation of authority is is personal responsibility for me. That's a principle. that's that's an ideology matter of and so if one principal becomes politicking in this gentleman dies then so be it but it's deeper than that. Now we've also had this conversation before We've been down this road before that. The state has threatened withholding funds to weld county Other counties a previously as a result of your stance on these seemingly to some degree arbitrary restrictions and my. Gosh we didn't even as i said to commissioner kirk meyer on friday. We didn't even make a courtesy stop in orange. But there's been counties. I believe it was moffat county When they had this. Same conversation with joe ryan and other officials down there in denver saying well. Yeah you want to move into level read but you think maybe we could go to orange and they were told yes indeed. That's an option. But meanwhile back to the question. No funds have ever been withheld from weld county. But are you concerned that there might be retaliation i'm that becomes a matter of politic and not a matter of of how do we join together and truly combat this this virus I'm concerned they sent an email and several months ago. As i'm sure mick..

"Designed to be data driven and binary if a county crosses certain thresholds that indicate worsening spread of covid nineteen tougher restrictions. Follow via that order unenforceable though it may be from the state but data in interviews with county health officials and political leaders throughout colorado reveal that the dial system turns out to be well highly negotiable delivering citizens and businesses. Well a patchwork of regulation snuffed make your head spin right informed partly by data and yes partly by politics. Now you could. Ostensibly run errands in two counties with roughly similar virus metrics and well expect different levels of protection because of the differences in relationships between the state and local officials in those counties. Low board of weld county commissioners. Let's just say that well. They have quite a robust relationship with the governor and Joe ryan who is director of the colorado department of public health and environment. Let's just say they've been known to butt heads now. The rules are different not only for retailers but also for other businesses schools and private gatherings so as we talked about the state recently revised its cova dial to create a new not quite stay at home level of restrictions. That's the new level. red level. Purple was added to the top of the dial. Now cholera just to give you some context here. Colorado's department of public health and environment. On tuesday named fifteen counties that moved to read on friday. This past friday five more were added late thursday to include weld county reaching level. Read just yesterday. And as i mentioned Larimer county will move to level. Red as a five pm on tuesdays on tuesday among other things that means that within these counties there's a suspension of in person donning and heavily restricted capacity inside of offices in gyms among well a veritable slew of other requirements. Will work through those on this morning. The revision of the dial to create level read was it self indication of the elasticity of the rules. Kind of fungible it. The state had strictly followed the dial. In recent weeks. Many counties would already be under. Stay at home. Orders by revising the dial well. The state protected counties from a full lockdown.

"Rights Bob pray. Course. A former US congressman representing Colorado's seventh Congressional district and vice and ranch in rancher in northern Colorado. But he writes incomplete Colorado page to there are many reasons to oppose proposition one fourteen a radical plan to introduce grey wolves and western Colorado via ballot box biology. But he goes on to make what I think is a very cogent point. Not The least of these reasons is the fact that gray wolves are already here eight forty now thirteen ten Kfi a thirteen, ten KFI A. dot com northern Colorado's voice mornings with Gail. The Auto Collision Specialists Studios. Mr Pray. Welcome back to the show it's been far too long. Great Charger with you again, Gail I've always enjoyed our interviews over the years Oh as do I. Alright. So let's talk about the ballot box biology. I love that turn of phrase. Well. And it's I. Think Inappropriate Trays Year let let me remind your listeners. that. We've got a wildlife commission and they're very expert one. The governor appoints them there. I, think there's a bipartisan requirements and they can't be all Democrat or Republican depending on the time. But these guys. That the people that have a farm this commission over the years. have. Earned a reputation and I'll underline earned. because it has them, they do a very diligent job of trying to figure out what's the best way to protect our precious wildlife in Colorado and our environment and the people who live here and interact in that environment as well. I say, they are widely recognized as the experts four different times gail. Over the last about thirty five years I think. Four different times this commission with different makeup, of course, over that span of time. This commission has looked at the issue of Wolf Reintroduction in Colorado and each time even after spending over a million dollars in researching the subject. Of, all four times have come back with the same conclusion and that conclusion was no. They oppose the reintroduction of Wolves Nice not good enough for some these environmental activists. who think they know better? So they bring forward a ballot initiative. That's why I, call it ballot-box Allergy. They're smarter than the scientist smarter than our experts, of course, and they and they give us this hocus pocus about how it's going to somehow. Restore our environment, complete our environment make all things well, and you know it's always a nirvana kind of experience. Yes, the experts tell us no now the as you pointed out. the wolves don't really need an introduction they didn't. They just kind of ignored that that that politeness if you will they came here anyway, they came here anyway we've you know. We're at we're Jackson County. So we're just less debut a bit up there right on the continental divide with our Bison ranch. And one of the first things we learned when we when we moved there about twelve years ago. Is that wolves are already there I mean you you hear them. We've seen them on our ranch, my son Eh one, maybe fifty yards away from him. He's out repaired fast one day. And they are apex predators absolutely there. Is You get there's vicious as you get. I mean, Think About Mountain Lions bears which we already have and we know we have a problem with Evan and even in residential Colorado, we had problems with coyotes and. you. You haven't seen anything yet until you see, the the the viciousness of these Canadian Grey Wolves which they. WanNa introduce here. So I if it really is confounding to those of us that would have to deal with this and and that brings up. Another bit of. I'll be polite and say the irony of all this this was an initiative really driven by by California Money George. To. Hell. Hell soccer right. He's still George Soros Funds, organization called the Tide Center in in San Francisco. That's where they are headquartered and they dumped over three hundred thousand dollars into this thing and initially just to to get a petition signed, get it on the ballot, and of course, went where the low hanging fruit you go in the Metro Denver area where there's a lot of people. A lot of people who think you know you say environment they say, where do I sign right? So he signed these petitions. But as you ring the ballot initiative. The wolves are going to be introduced from the Sixteenth Street Mall in downtown Denver, of course. That would be quite a site. Yeah. I mean about as far away from downtown Denver and. Boulder my my my my nearby boulder where I grew up. They're going to be the the petit the initiative actually says. As the Department of Wildlife has to introduce them in western Colorado. They're already there if you've been reading the paper. Not. Only do as locals up. They're not there. They've been there for a long time now the Department of Wildlife. has confirmed that there's a pack it's It's. It's stakeout their territory in moffat county The recently ones have been cited ingrained county. There's reports even in Larimer County, of of wolves, which is no surprise to those of us again, we've been living in with. Them for a long time and and these packs they tend to procreate right? Well. There's a couple of things that wolves you're really good. They're really good killing and eating, and they're also really good at at procreating. They've they multiply maybe not quite like rabbits pretty close. Let me give you a for example, this isn't just theory that isn't just me spout off because I think this is a dumb initiative. This is some of what we now have a fact. In nineteen eighty five nineteen ninety five excuse me twenty five years ago. The Clinton administration over the objections of folks in Wyoming Montana and Idaho. The Clinton administration under Bruce Babbitt Secretary of Interior introduced wolves these same ones that they would introduce here. Canadian Grey Wolves which by the way we're not a native species here we have what was called the Kimble way back when we did not have the Canadian Gray Wolf which is beggar and even more vicious. So so they introduced force forcibly introduced thirty five. That's it in in the Frank Church wilderness in Idaho on coffin specifically about the Idaho experience now. So, introduce thirty five in hopes. This was. Lewis Davidge plan of eventually getting Kim breeding pair established. Well, they sure did. Today there's not only the thirty five. The minimal estimate in Idaho is that there's at least fifteen hundred. Instead of a pack of wolves. They've got eighty to a hundred and they don't just have them in the Frank Church wilderness they cover the entire state, of Idaho. They've now migrated because when you get it, would would got a big enough population established a new pack. They just keep moving on and moving on and moving on and we got him in. Colorado they moved likely from that Wyoming introduction. Recognize stateline county lines no. The Idaho of thirty five wolves are now. over fifteen hundred, they're not only all the whole state there also in Oregon Washington and California. And and still lumine they. ISSUE THIRTY FIVE THOUSAND HUNTING PERMITS every year. In Idaho. They've got the government officials in airplanes for part of think it's the USDA department some division of it. That are up in airplanes trying to hunt and kill the wolves from the air shoot 'em. They allow trap in which we of course don't come around not anymore. And even with all of that, they can't keep up with the population expansion. Of these critters. So what was once supposedly a a wonderful thing from the environmentalists perspective that something that needed to happen Now you've got the wolf that is despised and being hunted down and killed itself. So nobody wins This is. The classic. You know the road to where is paved with good intentions. and. This might sound good to some people. But again, we've already got him. And what we haven't talked about. Gail you and it is the.

"The Auto Collision Not Specialists Studios Colorado residents will vote in November on a ballot initiative that calls for the proposed reintroduction of gray wolves to the state proposition one. Oh seven! This is a citizen initiated measure would direct the Carton Colorado Parks and Wildlife Commission to develop and oversee a science based plan to restore wolves to the western part of the state this morning by Kevin, Crooks. Professor in the Department of Fish Wildlife and conservation, biology and director of the New Center for Human Carnivore Coexistence at Colorado State University professor Crooks. Thanks for taking the time this morning. How are you I? AM great this morning i. Think. I would be the mistress of understatement by noting that there is plenty of Robusta discussion conversation debate dissension on this issue so last question I why the move to reintroduce grey wolves back into Colorado right well, that's a good question and you're right. That's not an understatement, the. Arrivals to the state is highly contentious and and hotly debated. Know for some context wolves where native Colorado they're actually white, widespread throughout the state, and all all major habitat types from the mountains, the praise of the desert but they were radically aided by Predator control program sponsored by the government in the early nineteen hundreds, and were the last wolves were killed in state in the nineteen forties. So it's looking like wolves might be part of Colorado's future. It's unclear, but there is the ballot initiative, but also you've probably seen the recent news media articles. Of the confirmations of a small group of Bulls up in northern Colorado, so if there is a handful of wolves here and there might be more if the ballot initiative passes so in terms of why people are pushing for the reintroduction me our team at CS. You and our team is comprised of wildlife biologists like myself, but also social scientists who study people and they conducted a public opinion survey last year asking Colorado into the. Question if they're supportive of Wolfer introduction and survey, respondents showed strong support for reintroduction and we asked him. Why are you supportive? And they gave a variety of reasons some. Said they wanted to somehow restore the balance of the ecosystem by returning this top Predator other people just wanted the opportunity to view view or here wolves and maybe increase tourism. Some people expressing emotional connection to wolves or some kind of moral argument about you know as humans that. Involves so it's up to humans to restore them. But you know that was the majority of people, but also people are strongly against it as well fewer people, the people who are against Whoa free introduction into surveys, they more frequently brought up threats to livestock. Impacts on big game and and people and pets. How do you view those impacts when it comes to the potential impacts on livestock, and of course that all important interface interaction one talk about the center there as well. For Coexistence because you know once again, it's something that we need to be concerned about but livestock humans and pets. You know it's interesting, wolves. Bring out such strong passions and people. There's a lot of apology about wolves. We have a long history. With wolves and so misinformation as widespread I think on all sides of this issue. That's what we're trying to do with. These educational materials just released. It's just to try to get science based information out there to facilitate more productive conversations. The livestock issue is definitely I would say the most contentious one we can gain insight from other states with wolves, so for example up in the northern rocky. Mountains in Wyoming in Idaho and Montana. Studies show up there that wolves, killing livestock depredation on livestock, a small economic cost to the livestock industry as a whole in the rocky mountain region, but both can have substantial economic and emotional impacts. Impacts went for individual ranchers when wolves move in and attack or kill or chase their livestock, and those are real impacts that are important to consider because it's going to be those individual producers that bear the brunt of the cost of wolves, and so we're interested at CSU and developing strategies to prevent or reduce those kinds of conflict between wolves, some livestock and that's one of our focuses. For the upcoming year or two, what about the interaction between Wolves and human humans? I mean again. This might be a misconception on my part, but it seems as though you got one lone wolf in the state, just kind of hanging out in North Park that was back in summer, twenty nineteen. Pack you referenced. In well pack of wolves, appearing to be living in Moffat County, but I my perception is that they're kind of loners. Well they're you know they're actually social animals, so we'll in packs, but then individuals will once they grow up if they can't.

"It's here and now North Korea's top diplomat in Italy and his wife have disappeared from the embassy in Rome and are reportedly seeking asylum in the west this is according to South Korean intelligence officials who briefed lawmakers the BBC's James Reynolds is in Rome and James what do you know about when North Korea's acting embassador chose Gil vanished. And where he might be the reports were getting stressed. These reports the first ones coming from cells suggested he was last seen at the end of November. So at least five weeks ago, those reports also say that he has requested asylum. We've put that to the Italian foreign ministry and has replied by saying each not aware of any asylum requests from him. So the moment we simply cannot answer the question where is he? So is there any reason than to believe that something more sinister might be going on that he could have been kidnapped or killed or any other? Option. Certainly no reports coming out from solo from South Korea about that. And bear in mind, those news papers in so, of course, extremely well. Connected with this kind of story, and the fact that they haven't broke us or run any of those stories tend to suggest perhaps that's not necessarily what they're thinking. But nevertheless, it is a very interesting question. There is a forty eight year old man, and his wife, he has been the acting embassador to Italy, a pretty senior role a role right to the heart of the west a role in which he would have had to deal with the food and Agriculture Organization a vital link given North Korea's. Unreliable food supplies. We don't know where he is. Are we hearing anything from North Korea? Not that we've seen here in Rome and bear in mind. That's not particularly surprising because North Korea. Wouldn't I think necessarily give any kind of commentary on what clearly for them? Maybe a very very embarrassing story. And therefore the developments have been picked up and reported first of all by the south, South Korea, and embarrassing story for what particular reason, this is certainly not the first defection if it is a defection from North Korea. Because essentially a country like North Korea doesn't want defections why from each point of view would anyone want to defect country, which of course, is a pretty good country. The fact that there are defections there was a senior defection twenty sixteen in the UK is, of course, a blow to the prestige and the reputation of that particular state, we can't yet workout what has happened. But it's very clearly he's no longer reporting for juicy if it is discovered that this North Korean diplomat is indeed seeking asylum in Italy, Italy risking anything if it grants it. I think that's something that Italians will have to deal with when it gets to them. Very clearly. They did make a protest in two thousand seventeen after Italy expelled, the then ambassador in protests of nuclear tests by North Korea. So Italy has taken steps against North Korea. Which is why Mr. showed the man who has disappeared became the acting ambassador whether or not Italy wants to get more involved in asylum. Whether or not Italy feels that perhaps South Korea, which is a coastal welcoming home for many defectors wants to take that on is entirely unclear at the moment. Okay. The BBC's James Reynolds in Rome. Thank you, James. My pleasure. To colorado. Now, we've heard a lot about the economic benefits of legalize marijuana. Colorado has brought in one point five billion in state revenue since two thousand twelve but the new laws are putting one job in jeopardy. Their marijuana sniffing dog. It seems sniffing dogs can't be taught to unsnapped for marijuana. Now that it's legal and in one case in Moffat county, Colorado marijuana sniffing dog named kilo alerted handlers to search vehicle, but what they actually found was something else and judges later ruled the search illegal. Let's find out why. And how that's affecting other pot sniffing dogs like to low who lives in nearby rifle. Colorado with his handler police officer Garrett Duncan officer Dunkin welcome. Hi. So too low knows how to sniff out and find marijuana. And by the way, he's an officer. Correct. Yes. Yes. Yes. So interesting officer that this has become a problem because cases are being overturned one that we're reading. About in a dog named kilo. Well, the reasoning is is because people do with marijuana being legal have a reasonable expectation of privacy for that particular odor. When we talk about dogs in the way, they work, but dogs are locating an odor that they're trained to detect the case up in Moffat county the courts brought up the fact that will wait this dog is trained in marijuana. So how do we know he didn't indicate marijuana? I don't believe that they actually found any marijuana. They actually found some drug paraphernalia with residue of meth on it. But the court ruled that defeat been smelling marijuana that's now legal the United States, Kim court has ruled that when officers have probable cause to believe that there's illegal and in this case, what issues substances such as drugs inside a vehicle if we've built up probable cause we can search that. We'll sue where the dogs considered probable cause. Before the recent ruling in Moscow county. Right. It sounds like judges now are saying, well, wait a second. We don't know if they were really probable cause. Because if they were smelling marijuana, that's legal. Yes. And then that brought into question the dogs that are currently trained on marijuana. How hard is this for departments to you know, as we said, you can't just tell too low to switch to just methamphetamines. You know, it makes our job a little more difficult than with the recent ruling they're wanting dogs that are trained in marijuana before we deploy them. They want us to have more reasonable suspicion that there might be something other than marijuana there. Right. So again, you can't just rely on too low. You also have to have some other reason to have gone into somebody's truck or car or whatever something other than to Lowe's knows which is why we understand that officer to though will be retiring soon. Yes, he's he's ten and a half. He's been with the department since two thousand ten the question that was brought up when we were deciding on how to replace to was whether we wanted to train those dogs on marijuana still. Yeah. And do you know, actually, we made the decision not to because it's not as practical? To have a marijuana sniffing dog on the road anymore. Well, and those towns that seem to be replacing their marijuana sniffing dogs are training the new dogs only on heroin or ecstasy but not marijuana. So that again, these dogs can be reliable reasons for them to take action. Sounds like to Lowe's had a good run. I'm sure you're going to be missing him. I'm kind of a rarity. I actually own him the department doesn't. So no matter what he's coming home. With me. It is expensive to buy these and train these dogs thousands of dollars for some towns. I'm sure it's not that easy. No. And actually in our scenario. It wasn't. We actually got to low because of me, I went out I purchased him as a puppy. I got him trained the department was able to pay a few dollars. So that we could get certified. And now that we're looking to replace him. We don't just have an extra ten fifteen thousand dollars dogs green without any real training can be five to ten thousand dollars on top. You have to add on the time for training and getting certified in that can add on another expense at a lot of departments, such as, you know, rifle because we don't have that kind of money. So we actually had a local four H kid named Carter Falk. He came to us and offered to help start raising some funds. So that we could purchase a new dog. So Carter was instrumental in helping get us to new dogs that will be certified in January to take tools place with terrific is will there be some sort of retirement ceremony for? For too long. We're actually going to have a retirement ceremony. One of our local little theaters the theater here in town on January twenty fourth and what will you say to two low about his contribution to Lowe's contribution to our community has gone not only from locating drugs and getting drugs off the road. We do a lot of public relations stuff in the schools kids. Love him. Parents bring up their kids. We get to talk. What's his biggest bust? His biggest case, drug wise. His biggest was before marijuana was legal eight pounds of marijuana. The other one was a kilo of methamphetamine well officer Garrett Duncan we would like to salute officer to low against soon to be retiring and wish you well. With the new pups that Carter folk helped bring to the department you just you just never know what you're going to have to deal with enforcement retiring marijuana sniffing.
