Frustration is mounting over mail delivery delays in Washington. The problem has been lingering for months, but as northwest news radios John lobert he reports, there are no immediate solutions. In December, congresswoman Kim schreier sent a letter to postmaster general Louis DeJoy about mail delays, so have other elected officials in other parts of the country, a letter dated January 11th, the second and 6 months came from congressional members, Rick Larson and Susan del bene, neither are talking, but these aren't about missed holiday packages as mayor Luke hell you're in Lake city, Minnesota found out. In seniors who rely on medication through the veil that aren't getting it. Or it is business owners who are worried that bills are not coming in or going out. Staffing shortages may be at the center of this problem, but in the Larsen del beni letter there were deeper concerns. We also heard reports that USPS employees in these areas were asked to prioritize package delivery over other types of mail, even though our constituents reported missed paychecks, medication, court notices, and other important items. John loeber team, northwest news radio. Los Angeles voters will decide whether hotels and motels will be forced to act as a stopgap measure to reduce escalating homeless numbers. Chris Daniels traveled to LA to look into that proposal. Could this work in other parts of the country? No, it's a terrible idea anywhere. The facts are very clear. Global population has people with mental illnesses somewhere in the 25 to 35% range. Those people need help. And hotel workers are not trained to deal with that. Chip Rogers is the president of the American hotel and lodging association, and he says he knows if this policy takes hold in LA, it would spread. One of our great fears is that if the voters of Los Angeles were to foolishly pass this, no doubt that the supporters of it would declare victory, whether it's working or not. We asked Washington governor Jay inslee about it. Was that something you would support in Washington state? They just really haven't given any thought of that. But I do want to say this, look, we don't have enough physical structures for the people who live here. So it's not a matter of just empty hotels rooms. We have to build more roofs. We have to build more doors that lock to give people

"Hi, it's Ada. I'm here with slowdown producer, Micah. There will be new episodes with a new host in the new year. But for now, we are bringing you some of our favorite episodes from the archives. This week, we are returning to episodes that explore the beautiful ways poets approach death, the afterlife, and those spaces in between. I'm Italy moan and this is the slowdown. My father, stepmother, and little brother, all moved to stanwood Washington when I was 15 years old. I stayed in Sonoma, California, with my mom and stepdad. But I went to the University of Washington from my undergraduate degree, and I learned the language and landscape of rain. I have always loved the northwest, and I love that my little brother still lives in Seattle. It feels like a second home. After my stepmother died in 2010, my brother was living at college in Olympia, and my dad eventually sold the house and moved to California. Still, the northwest holds so many feelings of magic and nostalgia for me. In 2018, our read at the skagit valley poetry festival. I rented a car, and before I drove to the festival, I drove by the old house. I drove to the entrance to the pill check tree farm, where we used to hike as a family. I stood still in the Woods, and everything came flooding back to me. It's wild how a place can hold a feeling or a strong memory in such an intense way that it activates every sense in the body. I drove out to la Conner after that. The town with a poetry festival was taking place. And the drive reminded me so much of spending summers and holidays there. I remembered stopping for ice cream and provisions at the snow goose. A country market on the side of fur island road in Mount Vernon. Everything held some blurry teenage memory, and it felt like everything was happening all at once. There's something about that landscape that feels powerful in a spiritual sort of way. The extremes of the many kinds of rainfall, the fish that literally cross the road, so there are bright yellow street signs saying, same in crossing, along roadways that are close to streams and rivers. There are bald eagles landing in cow pastures or passing by with a fish. So many bald eagles that once my best friend tea, who visited me and stanwood started to say, oh, it's just another bold eagle. But after the months of rain, an in between the storms, when the sun comes out, it feels as if the landscape opens up. Widens as if someone has turned on the lights. There's a clarity to the world that feels both surreal and otherworldly. On that drive to the corner, I remember imagining living there right near the river, because it's a place that calls to me, a place that's alive with memories. I could imagine looking up and saying, oh, it's just another bold eagle. And feeling like I was home. In today's poem, we see a vivid description of that dramatic northwest landscape, and how, for the speaker, it's a place where the scrim between the living and the dead is thin. Sunrise through Mount Vernon, Washington. By Jasmine kalik. After beauty, I am entranced by the soft, dislodging of eyes. Blurs of cows, necks, sloping, lapped rainbows, colors, thinner than water and running. This is where I'm most miss. The dead. A highway pasture, bisected body, and always, I, am on the other side..

"The trolley scene, the simple trellis that you have a fruit tree growing on it. Whenever we have a chance that people can ask the gardeners question and we share with them how easy it is to do that. Cis turns something that they may want in the garden to pull water, cold frames, they may not have seen that before or thought to include in their garden surrounding the garden with putting brick in some way like maybe a wall or a back wall. Those little things means a lot and of course just the planting arrangement of the cell. It's not at all formal. It's very random to see all the different combinations where nothing is really coordinated. You know, they think, yeah, I can do this. And they can't. Did you ever have that moment in the garden where you're just in awe of where you're standing? All the time. It does happen in the garden, especially the upper garden, but I'll tell you when I am looking at the gardens and talking to the gardeners. And when I go from one garden to the other, and I walk across that Bowling Green and look at that house, I just can't believe that I am here. The house is so beautiful. I often think that it really doesn't exist. It's just a backdrop. So every day I'm in awe of the beauty of this property of the landscape that Washington created 250 odd years ago, how honored I am to be here to maintain that for him. What is the visitor experience like? Now for years ago was kind of a kiss of death for children. It wasn't anything at all for them to really look at and get excited about. People touring male Vernon took about two hours. Today, people come for the day and sometimes even come the next day. There's so much to see and do. We have so many activities that people can view, such as the blacksmith, the baker, using an oven to cook bread, people at the pioneer farmer site in costume, the gristmill distillery, that they're just incredible to see a millwork and to see the discovery where whisky was made. It's really amazing. And then the tours that we have, we have slave life tours. We have garden landscape tours. The museum and the orientation centers are so well done. People can come spend whatever time they want, but they are going to go away having had an amazing experience of an 18th century site and learn much more than they ever would have thought about the life and times of everyone here at Mount Vernon. The washingtons, the gardeners, the visitors, and the enslaved. It's an amazing experience. How is Mount Vernon touched you?.

"Short, he's the best hired servant I've ever had. And what makes it even better is that he says he has never been happier. I think that's really wonderful. And certainly rings true for me for being here at Mount Vernon as long as I have. My life here as the gardener has been a very happy experience. What did the garden go through between Washington's death and until the time is bought by its current owners? It started to fall in disrepair rapidly. Visitors accounts have been occurring since Washington lived here. People visiting in a right near diaries or letters to friends, which is tremendously valuable to us, for that is our Polaroid to the past. Washington died in 1799. And visitors in 1801, 1802 are saying that it's deteriorating. It doesn't look anything like I did during Washington's time. So things just started to fall apart a little bit. You didn't have the money. You didn't have the dedication, maybe, to do as well, not to say that work wasn't being done and things weren't being cleaned up as best as possible, but definitely it was noticeable to visitors that it was in a bit of disarray. So in the latest association purchased the property in 1858, things started to change, of course, quickly. And of course, Mount Vernon is in their hands today and it's a beautiful, beautiful site. Did they buy it from the family? They bought it from John. I got seen Washington the fourth Washington that owned the property before it was sold to the ladies. It cost them $200,000 and with that they received 200 acres where others said you should take everything down, but the mansion because that's all that's important. They made the decision that they wanted to keep everything. That was there during Washington's time, which was absolutely the right thing to do. We have all the outbuildings. It's an amazing opportunity for visitors to come to see in a state, a plantation, as it was during the time of the owner. Are there new discoveries being made through modern archeology and research or you feel like you've reestablished everything there? No, there are new discoveries all the time. It's amazing..

"Had a wood door on the west side of the structure to keep afternoon sun coming in. It was too hot a glass door on the east side to allow morning sun in. It had shutters that close very tight so that the winter time when you got whatever heat you could get from the solar energy, you could close those shutters, retain the heat overnight. It was heated by a stove roam on the opposite side of the structure, the fire pit was quite low and that hot air and smoke would go underneath the slate floor in the greenhouse and then rise up along the back wall and out the chimney. It was very efficient. It houses semi tropical plants and citrus trees in the winter, not for them to continue to fruit so we had lemons and limes and all that just to keep them alive in a winter time. And all these gardens haste combining beauty with necessity. How did he accomplish that? The one garden that really does that beautifully is the upper garden or pleasure garden. He wanted a pleasure guard. He wanted the aha moment when someone walked into there. It's a ten foot wide path, edged in boxwood with this greenhouse at the end. He was concerned, though, in that he didn't want to lose a lot of space to the growth of vegetables, which were still the most important plant they grew on the property. 18th century horticulture said, look, George, you can do both. Plant your vegetables and then surround them with the border of flowers. The border could be three feet, 5 feet, whatever you so decide. It's the border that's actually the pleasure garden. So you're really not losing that much space to growing vegetables. How did Washington change his gardens to enhance Mount Vernon's natural beauty? He adopted the naturalistic style. There are four key elements of that. The curved line is nature's gift, management of surprises, random planting, and hidden barriers. Now, if you can do this for a thing, you're well on your way to a wonderful naturalistic design..

"And reviews are always appreciated. Dean why did general George Washington the first president of the United States garden? Well, he really gardened for necessity. The earliest gardens were called gardens of necessity for health and survival. Of course, the most important plant to be planted within a garden where vegetables, something that you are going to have at the dinner table to eat. Vegetables were huge to him, even during the Revolutionary War. He wanted to make sure that his troops were getting as many vegetables as they could whenever possible. I would not actually call him a gardener, per se, but for a year and a half, he became a designer, totally redid his country seat from a very simplistic design to one following naturalistic design principles. Then that landscape were for very fine gardens that he oversaw. What story does the mountain garden garden tail? That tells the story of a man that wanted his gardening world to be complete, I would say. He had a very small Botanic garden, which he fondly called his little garden, when he was here on site. He was typically doing that work himself on his knees, planning seed and seedling saplings. He kept such good records in that little tiny garden that we were able to recreate that quite nicely. His earliest gardens were a fruit and nut garden and a kitchen garden, but when he changed his design, the kitchen garden remained as it is, the fruit nut garden became a pleasure garden with vegetables and there as well, which is kind of an interesting combination. Hey, out of vineyard for a while, but the grapes failed, and that became a fruit garden and nursery. The nursery was for plants that he could grow to plant other areas of the estate, and also to grow things just for collection of what is today's mission for the garden. Today's mission for the garden is interpretation. We are trying to share with our visitors what life was like in the 18th century. Why these gardens were important, certainly after 1785, the gardens took on a new role, which was for people to come when visiting George Washington to be impressed with what he had created here at Mount Vernon. The story of gardeners themselves, the gardeners at Washington hired through the articles of indenture. Also, the enslaved gardeners that worked with the professional gardener to cultivate till to harvest. It's a great story. It's one that we thoroughly enjoy telling, guarding really hasn't changed much from the 18th century. So when we're out there digging in the earth, we think of those gardeners from the past. Today's visitors, how do they respond? I'll tell you what, when they come through the gates and they get to the Bowling Green gate and see the house for the first time. That's exactly what they were expecting to see..

George Washington Knew 'Home Is Life'
"The whole process around Washington, though, leads us back to Mount Vernon. It leaves us back because he always, you know, from reading what I've done on reading and studying and going to Mount Vernon and others. He always had this idea that where he that home was his life. That was, that was his world, but when he would go out to serve, whether it be in the military or as president or others, it was always to come home to Mount Vernon. Is that what you got in your research before we get into some of the business issues? Very, very much so. And you know, he, I also sort of gave us the idea of the citizen legislator. He gave up power twice, both when he was when people tried to make him an emperor when he was victorious with the Revolutionary War, but he said, no, I'm going home. And then he was sort of drafted to be president and went home from that. But he really made Mount Vernon into a show plays an Anna place that, you know, was like, what they might even call an incubator today in venture capital terms with so many business enterprises.

John Berlau: George Washington Made an Art of Reading and Questioning
"You know, industry John, I want to talk about it because you're very well schooled as well. I mean, I've been to, you know, as my dad was said, I had more degrees than I probably understood. And I get that, but you know, the one thing though, that I think is missing, and if you don't mind jumping in here, because you said it, he learned by reading and asking questions. Is that a lost art in our and I'm going to jump to today's one? Is that a lost art in our world today? There are a lot of people who still read and ask questions, but as I say in my book, George Washington entrepreneur. Available for sale at Amazon and whenever wherever books are sold, I'm talking about to talk about books. This is he made an art of it. I go into one of the examples in my book about how he wanted to build a greenhouse that they had greenhouses back then, even with the lack of electricity, building material, but it was some greenhouses in Europe and a few around America, but it was very rare, so he would ask everyone he knew and Virginia and they mentioned some people, Catholic family, the carols and Maryland, so he wrote to them. He wrote to the widow of a farmer who had built a greenhouse and she knew a lot of herself and she corresponded with him, Margaret Carroll, so that's the thing.

He was a member of the fifty third North Carolina infantry who fought in the battle of Gettysburg.

After he recovered, he deserted the confederates and joined up with the third north, Carolina mounted infantry which fought for the union. The unit was known as Kirks raiders after commander Colonel, George Washington. Kirk. After the war Mos- returned to North Carolina got married and started a family his wife Mary passed away in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety. As with many older civil war veterans, they would often take younger second wives especially during the Great Depression as their pension was considered a source of stable income. In one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, four at the age of seventy eight MOS married his second wife Alita who was twenty nine years old Mohsen Alita had five children. One of them Irene was born in one, thousand, nine, thirty when Mos- was eighty-three.

She received her father's pension of seventy three dollars and thirteen cents every month from her father's death in one thousand, nine, thirty, eight to her death in. Twenty twenty.

In Two thousand eleven at the age of one hundred and ten American Frank. Buck was the last surviving veteran of World War One in the world to pass away. Demographers estimate that the last veteran of World War Two will pass away sometime around the year twenty, forty four.
