"Police Chief J. Paris tells CNN affiliate W. W and the relationships are pretty good right now. He credits police officers being active in their hometown. It's easy to be mad at the police, but it's very difficult for the man. It's somebody that you know I'm on a first name basis, her says There is much work to be done. But it starts with police taking the attitude that they were here to work with you not against you. He says. In the wake of national rhetoric, it is also important for people on the streets to remind cops when they're doing a good job as well. Scott Kimbler GNN news It is the Martha Zoller show, and it's great that J pairs just getting national records in recognition on what he's doing. He's gonna be on the program with Rod here we tomorrow. I'm off again Thursday and Friday ahead, just this kind of juxtaposition of board meetings that happened all at the same time. So Rod's gonna be and he's got some great gas lined up for you. We're gonna talk to Abraham, mostly from the Stone Mountain Association, as well as the governor as well as Bill Crane and going to talk to Jake Paris. So we've got a great couple of days planned for you while I am going to be out of town. But I wanted to play that because it goes along with the Oscars, which nobody watched. I didn't even watch it. But Tyler Perry got the humanitarian award because he jokingly said he doesn't make Oscar worthy movies. But he has done a lot in media and he puts a lot of people to work. But here's this is about two minutes long, little over two minutes, but I want you to hear the whole thing. Because it's important that you do here's what he said in his acceptance speech. You know, when I set out to help someone, it is my intention to do just that. I'm not trying to do anything other than meet somebody at their humanity. Like case in point this one time I remember I was biggest about 17 years ago. I rented this building and we were using it for production. And I was walking to my car one day and I see this woman coming up out of the corner of my eye. And I say she's homeless. Let me give us a money judgment. I wish I had time to talk about judgment. Anyway, I reach in my pocket and I'm about to give her the money. She's excuse me, sir. Do you have any shoes? It stopped me cold because I remember being homeless and having one pair of shoes and they were bent over at the heels. So it's like, Yeah, so I took it into into the studio. She was hesitant to go in, but we went in. We go to wardrobe, and.

Okay, thank you for being patient and just hanging out there for me. Or good morning, al. I'm want to put in my two cents. I think it's time for you to get your own show at least 3 to 5. Well, that's ah, That's a conversation that maybe you need to have with Bill Main or some of the other powers to be, But, hey, I appreciate that, Kay. I really do appreciate it. Well, I'm in following you for a long time, And I know you have a show once before, but it's time for you to get one and come back. You know, every day But another thing I wanted to come in about was Stone Mountain. I'm just I'm sick of them. Everybody trying to change history. You cannot do that. And I'm gonna would like to know what you think about what you think I want to do this. Stop that nonsense. Well, when I first hard heard it, Kay, I said, this is this doesn't need to happen. We need to leave things alone that people are warning to change it all. Shape. Well, the proposals eyes I understand it. They want to put all the statues Confederate statues in one exhibit of one area and the the park on a 50 acre part rather than having them spread out. And they want to create an exhibit. As I understand. It called telling the truth. What, folks Okay, that we're we haven't lied about anything. Excuse me. It's just been, um We're trying to be politically correct and not And we were living in fear. I think a still about Well, they're going to come to my house and burn me down. You know, the whole point is, we haven't done anything. Until the last several years. Our E may be the last decade to really promote racism in and people will disagree with me on that, and that's fine. But you look at what the Obama administration did. You would think they would want us to to unite. As people of color, and when I say people of color, I'm talking about white, black, green and purple or whatever color the you'd want them to worry not to unite instead of divide, and Biden has continued that and it just is. It really gets to be really frustrating, Unconscionable Whatever. You see the Stone Mountain Association do these kinds of things or want of mourning. You know, they announced this yesterday and they is just doesn't make sense to me. I think a they need to leave the statues and monuments where they are currently I don't agree with this move. I don't have a great We're taking them down there. I'm moving or whatever, but that Carmen is there anything they can do it to remove the cars? Yeah, it's pretty. It's pretty tough. I I don't know that they will be moved removing the car, the carving, but that's that's gonna go will be coming down the road. If we don't stand up and be counted that is a national monument down there. So we just need to be very cautious and we need to be aware of what's going on or it'll happen happened before we know it. Okay, I'm I appreciate your call this morning. And I'm need to go to Tom before I run out of time. But I do. Thank you and Tom down in flowery Branch. What is on your mind this morning? I always enjoy when you're there because I'm pretty sure that you agree with what John Adams said, which is America will be A great nation as long as it continues to be a good natured way. Frustrated from that for generations now at exceeding warp speed, If I can use that urn, yes, that's that's this is the This is the operation works speed that the socialist Marxist Mommy traders have in mind other than what the president previous president had in mind. Book Operation of Speed Assed Far as Tracy Abrams Goto's We need we need more. Restriction. We need not restriction, but we need more. Um, security about the election and specifically when, um people Those are counting those absentee mail in ballots. There needs to be plucks and lands right across from that so people from both parties or just independent observers and be there When those ballots get opened, they can slide the ballot in a slot under the under the Plexiglass. I've seen those slots and auto dealership When they're doing business with the customers. You can slide the information back and forth, hold the things up so that the observers concede it. So if if that isn't done, and I I'm still not happy with With the with the situation as far as the ballots. Yeah, those mail in ballots and absentee ballots. And as far as Joe Bama, I've heard Obama. I've heard O Biden, but I like Joe Obama. I like that better than me. Yeah. And as far as his appointment, John Kerry, they're two peas in a pod. It's all about number one themselves and number two. The globalists taking over everything. They're both traders in my mind. Maybe that's too strong a word because they haven't been proven, but I think they betrayed not only the oath of office, but they betrayed their.

"An inordinate amount of chlorides sweat so literally. They the functional test to determine cystic fibrosis. They will Hooking hooking up to an and wrap his arm or his leg and towels and put probes on him and Just heat his arm until he starts sweating His or her until they start sweating. They'll collect that sample in the know. Run it and see how many you know what. The chloride levels are so after about four or five months of Lincoln just not thriving not gaining weight We finally said you know and I think in the back of our mind we knew but we wanted to see if there was if if that would be one less hurdle to cross but Finally we said we gotta do sweat tests. We've got to figure out if this and turns out sweat test was positive and Since the day started getting treated for CYSTIC fibrosis and taking the enzymes and doing the the treatments and Denver Children's Hospital is unbelievable We've we've had the chance to leave Denver a couple of times from job perspectives. And things like that. And we've turned him down because the ability and the relationship that we've grown with Denver Children's and So once we got him on a program He's really started to thrive at. I mean tapers like so I mean I you know I talked about it a little bit. I have a fifteen year old and a thirteen year old and you know I I remember before we had kids people always say oh you know the only thing that matters is the health of your kid and and I I truly know that you just have no comprehension of what that even even means until you know. I think certainly not a similar story in the outcome. But I remember when Ben my oldest was being born and we had an intern they said. Did you mind if the intern delivers the baby. And we're like sure and his heart rate dropped and the doctor realized that the cord was around his neck. And I mean I've just never seen anyone goes so quick quick and got him out and everything was fine but that moment of just absolute fear and and my my cousin's daughter had the the cord around her neck and unfortunately has just been a life lifetime of of disability handicapped And so that that was a near Miss. And and you guys are dealing with is not not with just one note with just cystic fibrosis. But then with two children with down how full House that impacted your marriage relationship your your outlook on life. And and I'm I'm GonNa tie this too because he started a charity Which I think is is phenomenal? One of the reasons I was so excited to have you on so talk to me about first marriage and then second what led you to that and what you've learned through that and what what the charities been able to help hope do I want you take that to start as far as our marriage goes. I think. Gosh you know you go through so many emotions. And while you're sitting there and your babies nick you and there's really and if you've ever been in a knick you there's there's not sleeping quarters for the parents like you're you're sitting in a chair. Nick pretty much lived and worked from this rocking chair in Lincoln Trim for the whole time we were in the nick. You and then pick you for that matter but you're just in disbelief almost and heartache. In everybody wants to help you. But there's only so much that they can do they. Can they can help you with your kids. Your other kids. They can make dinner for you they can you know those things but really. It's it's union husband or you and your wife that are in there together and and for us it was. I think we got mad. Probably a God a little bit but at the same time it was you yell you scream you cry and and then you realize gosh. What a blessing? Because then you watch your other two kids kids come in there and see their baby brother and and they just love him and it's that unconditional channel innocence. They you see through the child. Your child is all three of them for that matter. And Gosh you you just grow deeper and deeper in your faith in your love for each other in your left for your family and community because it's it really it. It took a village and it's still taking a village and we were so blessed by so many people people that came into our lives and have stayed in our lives and now we watch Lincoln especially really with his brothers and we watch the smile that he puts on so many people's faces. I mean he will walk down the hall and Jim. Hi Hi hi and everybody. I mean instant smile and so putting that into perspective I mean. Yeah it changed our lives at changed what we thought we were going to do for the rest of our lives and I think we can both say it changed for the better. Yeah for sure I mean First of all like the the the Nikki nurses the one one a Concrete thing that came out of the Nikki Nikki. Nurses are the most perfectly placed employees on the planet. You have to have a love in a passion for what you do to do that and So that was that was an amazing thing to see and like I said I mean alternately the blessings that have come out out of this have been much more than you know again. You have a child. That doesn't have any issues and you think that the sleepless nights are the worst thing in the world until you're continues away and you think it was that didn't you know just a blip on the radar screen So the hospital stay has become not a blip. It's definitely a good reminder of of where we've come from and and you know what Lincoln is through to get to where he is and and Jackson as well But ultimately I think you know again it strengthened in our faith and You know Aaron likes to say it takes a village in. It's a team effort. You know what we do on a daily basis is definitely a team effort. But it's Kinda like when Lebron took the cavs to the finals for the first time there's definitely somebody carrying the load right and It just amazing to me it just it. It's made me fall more in love with Aaron because of the way that she's taken on this and looked at it and said this is my purpose now. Lincoln is my purpose now fighting for kids with. CF is my purpose now fighting for kids with Down Syndrome as my purpose now to see her all the plans that we had and just say you know what is what I've been given uh-huh and this is what I'm GonNa do so to see that it's just been it's been pretty inspiring so so so the charities called down for a cure right so talk to me about when you started it. I know you have a lot of events So talk to me. I bought the charity. And and what it's been able to accomplish and what you hope. It accomplishes accomplishes long-term care started basically because of the village that we talked about a lot of our family members a lot of our friends want to know. What can we do to help or can we give money? Where can you know A lot up times. You know my families in mostly in Indiana errands families in Missouri so that distance Kinda keeps feeling a little bit separated but ultimately ultimately you know being involved in this my brother. My younger brother lives in Denver. Here and Jeff Williamson He. He and his wife have always always been dinner for us. They've been just unbelievable and I can't say enough about them but jeff night always talked about starting a golf tournament to Raise money for cystic fibrosis. Well when the down down centerpiece Kinda got added to the plate. We said how do we do this. So we started looking can into a nonprofit organization and when it was just. CF it didn't make sense. We just funneling money to cystic fibrosis foundation But when the down syndrome piece came into it we said Ah this. This is what we need to do. and we said let's do it and we didn't know what we're doing what we're getting into and Jeff came up and we sat down at the kitchen table and and we wrote a mission statement and and essentially the mission statement. Says you know down for a cure is here to You know help family. Individuals and families families who have been affected by. CYSTIC FIBROSIS Down Syndrome. Through education one through financial means and through events that can you know spread spread the outreach and spread the spread the word about these to these To lifelong notices. How how how? How common is it to have down syndrome and and CYSTIC fibrosis? And that has to be pretty area. We have literally found two other people in the world and when we say we Australia. Yeah and when we say the world we through the CYSTIC Fibrosis Foundation through the Down Syndrome Association Rocky Mountain Association and the Center at the Children's Hospital Hospital You know the doctor at the center and children's is ICON the Michael Jordan of Down Syndrome Syndrome. He's been involved in it for thirty five years. He said not once in his career has he seen both so very rare so so we. We've talked a lot about Jackson Lincoln And so as I think you know again apparent but you have a middle child brock and and No cystic fibrosis probably carrier. But just as an active is that is that fair and then And you know healthy. How how is that? You know. 'cause obviously all attention really is sort of on number one and three how. How does brock do it? How do you humanitarian his parents? How how does Brooke a adjusted adapt and then what are you seeing brock? Brock is a lot like his daddy. And he's got a huge heart He's also a little crazy But but he. I don't know that he really gets it. But from day one He's twenty two thousand eighteen months younger than Jackson. And when Jackson started his vest he got it age too so he he'd do his best and and then he had stepped up to the next size so then Brookwood wear Jackson's old vest with nothing. Hooked up to it so he wasn't shaking but that he would put it on and they would lay on the couch and watch cartoon together and he will still even with Lincoln now. Lincoln can watches the wiggles and elmo Hen Brock. We'll go over. And he will sit with Lincoln while he does best and just put his arm around him and he just wants to love him and he's just a very good supporter. I mean the poor kid has had go through. He's had to sit through doctor's appointments. And they go to. CYSTIC fibrosis appointments. Every three months and they are three to four hours long and he sits there and he's patient and he's he's he's just a good pig brother he has no idea what wait he has on his shoulders up but I think I think God knew in that he he would be the one. I think the most telling the day after our for the night of our first golf tournament We had some some folks over and were just blown away by the success of the tournament and it hit me kind of like when you just ask the question about brock. Oh Gosh And everything was Lincoln and Jackson today and so we just put brock too bad and I ran up there and I I kinda grabbed him and I said hey man even though your name's not on this here just as big of a part of this exactly what Aaron said. You have no idea that way you have on your shoulders but your warrior and you're made for this and you're going to be unbelievable and he looked at me and he said that's really nice. Daddy they gave me hug and so we had a houseful of people. And I'm outside on the porch boohooing and but that's that's just the attitude he has you know One of the first things we were told we found out about. CYSTIC FIBROSIS WAS DR was on his way out. He was retiring. And he said this disease. Aziz is going to be what you to make and looked at in the ninety. Said if you tell your sunny sick if you tell her sunny can't have you tell your son he's got a problem that's what he's going to believe life but if you treat this as a part of everyday life he's GonNa run and he's GonNa Laugh. He's GonNa Swim. He's going to do things normal. Kid does and probably the most sage advice we could have gotten at that time because as we we didn't know what to do And that's kind of how we've tried to take an approach with it Obviously Jackson those. There's some limitations limitations and things he can't do and You know we remind him constantly one of the analogies people give if you WanNa know what it's like to have cystic fibrosis get on a treadmill..

"mountain association" Discussed on WGN Radio

"The conversation live whenever a story changes on Chicago's very own seven twenty WGN. Brian neutered on seven hundred twenty WGN here. So six thirty his Blackhawks hockey. You know, we've been paying a lot of attention to the partial government shutdown in the fact that eight thousand federal employees are out of work and people who have contracts with the government are starting to suffer. Now reports a TSA agents are calling in sick so much bad news going along with the shutdown part of that bad news. Of course, the national parks in the National Park Service and the parks being filled with litter and the porta-pottys overflowing and just trash and graffiti and national parks in dire need of help. And it's nice to have a good story. A feel good story. And that's why when I saw the story of Mark Nolan and his daughter Erica, I thought to myself, I gotta talk to these people. And so here they are on WGN. Mark Erica, thanks for joining me. Welcome. Thank you very much. We appreciate your having us. So we gotta ask first of all how how old the young lady? Are you ten years old ten years old? Very good. And you go hiking a lot in the great smoky mountain national park with your dad. Yes. I do. Okay. So Mark you guys you guys, go hiking. You live right outside the park, you go hiking there all the time. And the other day you decided you're you're in a Facebook group about hiking, the smokies, which is great. I was looking at the group today. A lot of people with terrific, pictures and stuff and you're out there with Erica. And whose idea was it to start picking up trash, or is this something that you guys do all the time when you're out hiking. You know, like you say, we do high quite a bit very avid hikers, and we love the smoking. So were there at any time? And you know, this all really started a few days ago. We actually had finally had a day that we would get a little daddy daughter time doesn't happen a lot but the family typically heist together. So we have my wife myself in an Erica. And so Thursday Erica had the idea that we should go hiking and during our conversation, I mentioned, so we're about the shutdown. Let her know what was going on with the shutdown, and you know, as we were discussing I let her know that, you know, there's a real need for the winter to be picked up because they stopped doing all those things, and you know, it was kind of a collaboration. But really more idea of, you know, why don't we just take a day away from our hiking? Which is normally what we do. Why don't we drop our backpacks and head out and pick up some trash bags and see what we can do to see if we can make a difference. So it was really it was really herreid. It's something that we do typically. Anyway, you know, whenever we're hiking where we always have a, you know bag on our backpack picked up, you know, water bottles in that type of thing. But. It's not as often that we actually just stop and take old days at a time in order to get to pick up the trash instead of the hiking. So yeah, this one is really really more idea than mine on this one which a great idea Erica. So when you when you start hiking with your dad, did you find a lot of trash right away or how how the park look having been shut down for a while. Fine. But we've got up to laurel falls channel. And then it started getting really trashing look disgusting. Did Lauren falls tells is one of the more heavily traveled trails in our national park. Probably the most traveled trailing our national park, a very touristy trail as a lot of a lot of people. So we had actually started in a couple of different areas and a little disappointed almo- almost. The head of it was kind of a it's an interesting oxymoron we were disappointed trash to pick up. But at the same time, we'd just as soon not have the trash though, we've got scouting out. And when we ran across wall. All's we knew that we would be spending some time there because it was it was really terrible. It's it's amazing to me and having been in the smokies, it's such a beautiful place. I can't understand why people feel the need to leave their garbage. Erica is as a ten year old. Do you look at adults and just shake your hand? Go. You guys are kind of dumb to leave your garbage everywhere. Yes. I do. I don't blame. You. I I do the same thing. I'm sure your dad does too. So Mark how does it work now with the with the parks being shut down? When you go there to hike are there. Are there signs are the gates to the parking areas closed? How does it? How does it work? You're seeing a lot of both, you know, right now, you're seeing signs everywhere. Signs, indicating you know, that all trash receptacles will not be emptied feed. You know, the restrooms are all closed down with signs indicating that due to the shutdown domino act of lack of funding. The dose of Phillies are shut down. There are several places that gates are actually up. So you can access those parts on but for the majority you can access most anywhere in the far right now. But you know, how it looks is what we've been another today we went back out, and we were taking care of another area of our of our part with another group of friends have been inspired to help clean up as well. And you know, you're going behind, you know, you go up to the restroom facilities that are usually, you know, they're not blameless restroom facilities by any means. But there are typical national park usually clean at least in their usually Queen and well stopped. And now the doors are locked and just today, we went behind the one of the restroom facilities there, and it was just an abomination the amount of use toilet paper. And you know, you spin in hygiene. Gene products, and it was just absolutely terrible. So we made sure we we picked up every last little piece from that and moved on to the next spot. So it is getting you know, it's something that I think that it's important for everyone to know that, you know, the the litter pickup is something that needs to happen year round, you know, every the year whether we're in the middle of a shutdown or not, but it's just really being magnified right now, you know, it's definitely increasing right now with with the shutdown. I don't know if it's just a, you know, people being spiteful, and maybe making a protest by throwing their litter down or they're just you know, really just that that non aware of what they're doing are two hundred firemen. But either way there's still lots of work ahead of us for sure. And for people who are wondering, you're not you're not affected by the shutdown. You don't work for the National Park Service. You're just you're just a dad and a husband who likes to go into the national parks because you live there. And it's a shame that you're having to come across this kind of stuff it really, isn't it? Yeah. That is correct. We're not at all expected. You know, personally, you know, financial or anything like that. Job wise because the national park, you know, my wife, and I work in tourism just outside of the national park. So you know, we see that. So we see the people that are coming in. You know, let's, you know, our national park receives ten million plus visitors a year the most the national park in the country. And you know, so there's always like I say, there's always a need. And you know, there's a rarely rarely a moment that we're in the national parks that were not leaving with someone else's trashing. It's it's expected. And you know, we also understand that a lot of times, you know, sometimes the trashes left behind could be something innocent, you know, perhaps a water bottle falls out of someone's backpack. Or you know, a a child drops a candy bar wrapper. You know, those things happen. But you know, what we're seeing right now is there's way more than just that out there. You know, it's very blatant. You know, you just lots of trash right now. So the good news is just in the last couple of days since we started our our cleanup efforts. There's large groups. I I'm hearing of you know, twenty from another hiking organization, they did probably fifteen miles Arroyo late today. That we were with and we took care of another section, and you know, now, I'm starting to hear reports of people that are going out hoping to find some trash and already we're making enough of an impact where they're coming back with their trash bags empty because you know, there's been other groups that have found the head of them and on a heading cleaned it up. So, you know, we're getting great response. I'm really really impressed by the community right now. Everyone seems to be you know, pitching in right now. And it's just great. Well, and that's it's needed. And it is great. And I know I'm reading reports from other national parks around the country that some private companies in the areas are starting to step up. But they're saying listen, the money isn't going to last that long for us to keep doing this. Have you seen any of that around the in your area? Yeah. Definitely, you know, so the first week or so of our shut down we had a couple of organizations that are already organizations here in the smokies are friends who smoke even the great smoky mountain association that they were working together to keep the facilities open. So they were still doing the trash pick up. They were still having the restroom facilities open. But. After a week, or so, you know, they're funding starts running low and they have other commitments as well. So they had to start falling back than that. And that's when everything really started seeming to get out of hand, they were related an amazing but nominal job keeping up with it for the first week. But like, I say, you know, funding only last so long and at some point they had to start pulling back as well. So now that we're into the real thick of it. You know, it's really a right now, it's really left on the shoulders of, you know, the volunteers that you love the park and are willing to get out there and spend their afternoons and evenings and mornings, or whatever we need to do to to get as much of that litter up as we possibly can Erica, if you could if you have a message for everybody who's listening, and they're they're going to visit a national park or just around here. They just go to the forest preserves. What were you? What would you tell them? Oh. On the ground and pick up any weather. Larry, see? Right. Bag or chaska and go because there's they do have a lot of trash cans around. You know, as you said, Mark, sometimes it's an innocent thing. You don't even realize it something fell out of your pocket. Some people some people. They don't care. Yeah. Erica what what greedy in third grade. Fourth grade. Very good. Are you back to school tomorrow? Tuesday. Oh tuesday. You get an extra day off one more day. One more day. Very nice. Well, listen, Mark. And erica. It was great to talk to you. You're doing great work. Congratulations. I hope more people pay attention to your story and start doing the same thing. You guys are doing because these national parks are unbelievable resources. And if we, you know, if we allow them to fall into disrepair bad things are going to happen. So thank you very much for what you're doing in the smokies O'Brien. Thank you very much. We really appreciate you picking up on our story helping us get the word out because there's litter everywhere, it's not just the national park. So hopefully, we can inspire someone, you know, just walking down the sidewalk if you see something on the ground line swoop down pick it up and pass it in the trash up. We all do a little bit. Now. None of us have to do a lot later. Exactly. Very nicely said, Mark. Thank you very much. Erica, thanks for jumping on. I appreciate it. Thank you have a good evening. Take care guys. All right. That's mark. And Erica Newland there. I saw their story today. It was hopefully, you're inspired a little bit too because if you've ever been to the smoky mountains, or if you even if you're walking through one of the forest preserves here or any of the national parks. I'm always amazed. When I see all this litter, always always amazed. So it's I is it that hard. Do you live in squalor at home? That's the big question. I have if you don't live in squalor at home. Why would you wanna leave, you know, stuff outside man? So congratulations to them again. Kudos to marginal. And his daughter Erica who came up with the idea. Ten years old. That's we need. That's the future right there. That's we need people. We need these kids. Who are we need to listen to him? That's why we need to do. All right. Let's do this. Then I got a beef. Oh, always little beef about one city being named a better nightspot than another talk about that on the other side WGN bears..
