"We are here to talk a bit about the f thirty five fighter jet. The f thirty five gets a lot of our time and attention because it was supposed to be the cornerstone of the us. Air force's fighter fleet and because it was going to really equip the fleets of our allies. And it still will but it's costing the nation a lot of money in it looks like it will continue to do so in the future Last week there was a pretty fiery hearing over on the house. Side of the us congress Lawmakers are really as fired up about the cost of the thirty five as they used to get about the navy's littoral combat ship and several leading lawmakers. Say they only plan to fully fund the air force's request for f thirty five this year so lee. How is that a change in. why are they making it. What was really the tone of those hearings that you went to last week The democratic lawmakers in particular chairman donald norcross. He's the subcommittee chairman for tactical air and land forces from new jersey and democratic member. John gear mindy from california. Were both really angry. In previous years the congress has put in additional f thirty five aircraft over the budget request. But this year. They said that they're are going to stop that. In germany said if anybody suggests a up there will be one hell of a fight. And i don't propose to lose. It is how he characterized it.

"We saw an increase twenty twenty an increase of about twelve percent in sales in store. We were closed for three months. We started slowing down at the beginning of the pandemic. And then we had a close and emma reopened river slow and then people started coming out again and then sales went up. Tony and stacey seminar are the owners of depot records in lawrenceville. So you guys would agree that music fans turn to vinyl during the pandemic absolutely so what are they buying when they come to depot their lawrenceville. What our music fans buying. It's a mix it's sixty percent. Classic rock and forty percent newar artists a lot of the vinyl. The newer artists drop are limited releases and almost considered collectible and then on the flip side. We have a lot of people new vinyl that are just buying the classic rock. The pink floyd the led zeppelin's We increase in like yellow. That kind of stuff to stuff. That's been in movie soundtracks that people like and they're just coming into this at her this on the radio. I heard this movie. do you have this. The recording industry association of america has released his numbers and it says that vinyl sales are outpacing. cd's and tony. You were telling me off the air. When did this start. Twenty nineteen was the first time a vinyl exceeded cd of physical for physical media sales. I was the second half of twenty nineteen vinyl exceeded cd sales for the first time. And you as a record store owner attributed this to the the sound of vinyl or tell me what the appeal is part of the appeal. I believe is the warmth of the sound that you get from vinyl record that you just do not get from digital media. Part of it is physically being able to hold a record and look at liner notes that you can actually read on twelve by twelve sheet of paper. Does any of this have to do with it. Being kind of a fad. Or is it back for good. We thought possibly five years ago when we opened. But we may make a run of this for a couple years. i don't see it being fad. So you guys would agree that silver lining from the entire co- vid pandemic. Was that record. Stores local record stores like depot records in lawrenceville thrived. I believe so yes. We have I think part of it is as more people are staying at home. The way people listened to music is changing back to the way it used to be there. There's not as much get in the car drive. Throw something on your iphone now. People are actually making listening to music an event even if they're doing it on their own they're sitting in their living rooms.

"Them a chance to maybe he keeps a close close. Yeah i think so too. I think this is going to be with alabama. You have to get to thirty at least some probably forty and we know florida can get to their with with trask quarterback. So i'm very intrigued. By that contest and notre dame and clemson. Obviously this is a a a major till So i i personally think trevor lawrence who should be back. Even though in this era you never know about. I think he should be back playing with the team. But still under james a very strong squad as well and very unique. Acc championship game. I don't think we'll expected to see this. And we probably will never see it again But i'm very forts that contest. Personally yet it should be a fun game. I think a lot of people that are looking forward around to these teams because they played such a great game. The first go around. But but like you said. Trevor lawrence was going to be back. And that's a huge difference in this game They certainly have one of the better backups in college football too but i haven't traveled back out there. That's a lot of big games in his career and played in a lot of big games. I think it's gonna be the difference maker that sound levels xylenes to clemson. I think the more talent out the two teams The more team speed i think. Overall as a glimpse into one of those who think not playing notre dame anymore. You're not and you have trevor lawrence back quarterback that's too too big a manages. You didn't the first go round to really like clemson to win those. Yeah i think so too. And what's our nfl spotlight. We have a guy who is a found his way into the nfl and as offensive linemen and has made his presence felt in a major way. So who'd you select for. Our spotlight will former offensive lineman orlando brown a junior. He's dad courses. Nfl player for a long time He played a feature origina- remember talking to him as a senior his big transformation. He you've come as a football player. Even even as a senior in high school he was he was good that the he played football but he didn't play very well. He was out of shape. He could hardly get arly move. He admitted he's over. Four hundred pounds. Didn't have the looks of a football player. But he took it upon himself to lose some weight and he's a big boy still. Don't get me wrong. But these he worked hard to lose weight. What is in high school and he turned himself into division. One prospect by the end of this is high school period. Set for that wasn't even hardly play in and got out of shape so quick out of breath so quickly. He was impressed with the with the transition made in high school and the thinking continued to see that in high in college at oklahoma he got better and better all american and and then coming out of coming out of college overcame. Some adversity really a horrific combine performance. His speed was way down at the combine and drop him from being a probably the high first round pick and into the third round and the ravens. Really got steel there. He started every game as a rookie has just been a A big foundation player on that offense whether it's left tackle the right tackle a bright future with the ravens for for a long time and a along. Nfl career much like his dad. So just great to see the kid rise from from what he was much of a football player at all to the becoming. The top offensive tackles in or the last year and he had a pretty fun game this week. Obviously with with a high scoring game with the browns the right night from the the ravens offense and certainly Orlando's big part of that.

"Common. Hi welcome back to the daily post. Football friday podcast. Which things up a little bit this week with a college schedule especially locally being all over the map Literally we are going to transition to recruiting news and discuss some of our local talent making their college commitments. So we'll over the past week. See what have been some standouts. It's been a big hit particularly this week. It's been big for peach periods both former and current players albert jiang. Who was the county punter and kicker for for lines. Couple years ago he He committed a pin. He had been originally committed to army and it kind of changed his mind to pin in the early market. If he's got an army and as options he's gonna avi league where i think he'll do very well at penn and cody arcade fox off. Its alignment up therapy Committed central arkansas. But i think the most noteworthy news was a was amari. Mcneil bestiary senior lamis. He's big good six four to eighty five something like that. He's a e- committed the tennessee volunteers. This week is a guy that was recruited up there as a defensive laminated. he didn't even at all salaam. it has entire career. Peachtree ridge just started playing a little defensive line this year. And i guess the tennessee volunteers and coach pruitt is obviously. He's a defensive coach. Knows what he's doing Saw something that they really liked about a mcneil on defense and ended up offering him late in the process. And and i took that offer up tennessee. Chance to plenty sec. I think he's a. He's been a very underrated talent. The last several years. It's great to see him that opportunity and this week also wills a recruiting convention or a meeting that mill creek. I saw the article on prep sports. Dot com a. What was that event like. Especially during this pandemic and the change really into recruiting practices and approach to things. We've had to deal with in twenty twenty. It was the was the touchdown club with their annual college recruiting fair. It's a it's a win. It's hosted by the touchdown club goes but it's really the teams from all schools from oliver. North georgia high schools to come there. A lot of fulton county schools for site schools cop schools of the government is this event. It's very well attended by college. Coaches in the past. You'd see hundreds and hundreds of college coaches run through Recruiting when it gives an other kids. Another areas of the college coaches is largely smaller schools. You'll see some big schools in the travel They can come kind of a one stop shop to see that many kids at that many different schools and not have to do as much traveling around all over the place when their budgets. Not the same as Some of the sec schools in that sort of thing so it gives them a chance to talk with local coaches see video. Get a little more information. On inside on players it's generally in the arena and the and the civic center there and it's a it's a lot of people packed into a small place but of course with covert. It was a little different this year. They had to do it. Outdoors Mill creek the tents. We're kind of set up around the track which those the best they could do in that situation with covid and i. I think the other big differences. The college recruiting is a little different right now. smaller schools don't have the budget and don't law out of uncertainty. How spots seems going to have with gets coming back and that sort of thing so that the number of colleges attending was much much smaller than normally is but still reasonable number of teams and schools showed up over there to look at kids and And i think there's probably certainly see a handful of kids that found some opportunities coming out of the fair which should be a handful of kids can can find their way to college football program. I think it was worth having if for sure any other college stanton that you saw from this past week represented gwinnett. Well i think a couple that stood out to me. I think i think number one davis mills Former gs jason quarterback he led stanford to win over number twenty washington. It was the first loss for a season. For washington's a record on the season davis was twenty out of thirty passing. Two hundred fifty two yards and a touchdown all set a couple of runs and that Great effort by davis. He's having a big senior season. He's a free education into which is never a bad thing while he's out there and kid i wanted to mention will show Former oxford defensive lineman troy shutout south alabama and. He was a big reason why last week he had one enough sacks and continues to be a force on the defensive line for troy for sure and nfl spotlight. We'll have a repeat this this week with another guy. He's taking advantage of the opportunity to play in. Probably leading one of the hottest teams in the nfl to now only by plow spa potentially a division title lang almond from the nearest guy eligible clemson and played grayson here locally his kind of rebirth continues to it kind of got drafted in the fourth round in two thousand seventeen and a nice rookie season restaurant. And seventy four hundred seventy six ago and we'll like is going to be the future of the franchise and then The chance to drift saquon barkley. Who's just once in a generation type talent. They're running back so kind of push pushed to the back burner. He had a hundred seventy six yards a second year in the pros and the only one hundred rushing yards all of two thousand nineteen so we can get a lot of lot of touches. Their saquon getting hurt. He's gonna rebirth. This year is kinda showed. His value had a career high. One hundred thirty five rushing yards last week in the giants. Be a big sixty yard. Run in the third four. That was a career long so at his career. Along with sixty yard is your best. One hundred. Thirty five rushing yards is actually one of the three league nominees for the fedex ground player of the week. So like you said a breakthrough for performance one of the hottest teams of the league teams in league. He's he's a dominant. Football player was a great linebacker in high school. And he's doing it for a team that's on a lot of football games right now and that makes it a lot more fun.

"In many blue states for not protecting and nurturing homes and he's not wrong about this the president from pilot this he said it's a disgrace how the governors handle nursing homes is a hundred percent sure I. forty some percent of all deaths in the United States happen interesting homes here is from going after governors for how they treated nursing homes which is not his fault that would be the governors ball we're using every tool at our disposal to protect our nursing homes from outbreaks these are the disaster of how badly some of the governors handle nursing homes it's a disgrace what they've done what the governor's what some of the governors have done is a disgrace our seniors are very special people all of our citizens are special but our seniors would have to take care of our seniors okay so he is correct about this now where the Democrats to open up a gap is in the idea that trump was unserious about this thing and that Democrats were serious about this thing and this is what you're saying Joe Biden trying to draw contrasts around the issue of mask wearing okay so that there's all sorts of conflict of whether masks should in fact be mandatory but they should not and this is a serious question the reason it's a serious question is because it's mandated by the state that means the policing coming arrest if you don't wear a mask well who's gonna tackle you know we've seen in New York that build lodges not willing to you know follow through on the courage of his convictions and actually have people tackled in in the open because they're not wearing masks instead of sort of people going by announcing he should wear a mask for the socially distance and other people on the right are very much anti mass because they believe that this leads to a perception of the new normal in which are all expected to wear masks I don't think anybody really believes that long term rather be wearing masks I think what people believe is that for the moment in order to prevent heat spike of the spread Norcross all get back to business we should probably wear masks to protect the most vulnerable particularly when the most vulnerable are

"This is weekend edition on WNYC. I'm David I it sounds like the premise of a future HBO drama set in New Jersey more than a billion dollars in corporate tax breaks for companies linked to New Jersey's top powerbroker, George Norcross and his family attacks break program that was carefully crafted to benefit this on elected boss, his business partners and clients of his brother's law and lobbying firms a first term governor criticizing the program and taking on the most powerful political operation in the state from his own party WNYC launched a series in partnership with propublica this week called the real bosses of New Jersey, we are joined by WNYC's Nancy Solomon, who is reporting the series along with Jeff pellets. Hey, nancy. Hi, david. So would you watch that show? I want a job writing that show HBO call me this four month. Invest. Instigative reporting project focused on tax breaks that went to companies that agreed to invest in Camden this tax credit program. This is a statewide program. Why the focus on Camden during the Christie administration? The tax program was changed, and it ballooned in terms of the dollar amounts companies received in the form of tax breaks. A Bill was passed in twenty thirteen the gave Camden special advantages with very specific passages in the law that gave a leg up to very specific projects. Researchers at Rutgers noted when they looked at the program they saw these outsized tax breaks and came to learn that the economic development of thority called them the Camden alternatives. Now, we know Camden is the hometown and base of operations for the Norcross brothers, George and his business partners got tax breaks, several clients Philip Norcross, his law firm got them as well. And congressman Donald Norcross received campaign contributions. From some of these same companies on Thursday. These tax breaks were the focus of governor Phil Murphy's task force a group of New York, lawyers who are experts in prosecuting political corruption and white collar crime the governor's really taking this fight to George Norcross. This is something new and different for Trenton. Isn't it? Nancy, Norcross has been able to grow his power base and his personal wealth for thirty years. He runs a political organization that is extremely good at what it does. He picks candidates. He raises a lot of money for them. He hires top knocked political operatives, strategists and media people. And then he holds those elected officials together their power comes from sticking together. So you can't get a Bill voted on in the legislature. If the Senate president doesn't allow it and Steve Sweeney. The Senate president is a very close ally of George Norcross once told me Sweeney, sometimes even asked for permission from George to put. Bills up for vote. The Norcross political machine has been fighting governor Murphy since he took office. And now the gloves are off this isn't about policy or political differences. We are witnessing a raw fight for power. And frankly, I don't know who's gonna win Norcross often makes the argument that he has to play hardball because otherwise south jersey gets none of the state's resources and the power is focused in the populous north. It's certainly true that he has built such a potent political operation that it has wrested control away from Hudson. Essex county's in the north. You know, Newark Jersey City Hoboken, this is where the state's concentration of voters are Norcross also points out that the tax breaks weren't going to Camden or Atlantic City to very poor places that needed them until the law was changed. I think it's fair to say that Norcross in his voting bloc in the legislature have flown under the radar for the. Average north jersey resident I don't think most regular folks are aware of him in the power politics that are play. But I hear from people all the time that they're frustrated that parts of governor Murphy's agenda that they like like the millionaire's tax or legal marijuana haven't passed. Legislators will talk about how it's about policy. But now they're against things that they were four just a couple of years ago. And there is one other interesting change going on the women's movement that flipped the Republican congressional seats last November. I saw several of those women at the task force meeting in Newark on Thursday. And you know, they stood up to Steve Sweeney over redistricting in January. So this is new and it could be what really drives change in Trenton. Well, as you explained there is political peril for all involved is George Norcross in any legal jeopardy. Well, this is where the task force comes in. They've already made a criminal. Referral. And all that they've said about it is that it's related to unregistered lobbying on the twenty thirteen Bill that changed the tax incentive program. We don't know what law enforcement agency they made the referral to or who it's about. But at Thursday's meeting they spent a lot of time talking about changes to the Bill made by Kevin Sheehan. He's a lawyer Phillip, Norcross, his law firm, Parker mccay in Philadelphia. But they never said that's who they're going after the task force also detailed what potential crimes may be involved with nine applications that ultimately resulted in those companies getting tax breaks. They're looking at the threat to move out of state, and that if a company made a false claim saying, you know, we can't business is too expensive to conduct a New Jersey. We're leaving the state that if they made that claim with a lease saying we're going to move to safe Illinois via it could be subject to federal mail and wire fraud charge. There was no question after this week that the task force is investigating the tax breaks connected to the Norcross brothers. Maybe could you talk about George Norcross response to your report in a statement. He thanked you for detailing the massive undertaking involved with helping to rebuild Camden future. So I guess he liked your story is his tongue appeared to be firmly planted in his cheek on that one I interviewed him for a story. And he says we WNYC and and the governor's task force are misinterpreting the law, and that companies moving to Camden. We're not required to provide a threat to move out of state to get the tax break. And he says he's invested three hundred million dollars in Camden. So he's got a lot of skin in the game. In the next three to four months. You'll be another twenty five hundred three thousand new employees being relocated to Camden, which is going to create opportunities. For goods and services to be purchased by companies that are are in Camden ready, and those that will become part of Camden, Norcross, also says everything he is done has been for the benefit of Camden. He's a major philanthropists there. He is transformed Cooper health hospital. And he believes the way to help one of the poorest cities in America is to locate more companies there, and that's what the tax program has done. All right. So is Camden seeing benefits are the tax breaks. Helping the residents of Camden. The fairest thing to say is the jury is still out on that one. It's possible that what Norcross says is true that as more businesses located in the city that will lift up the economy of the city, even if those businesses aren't hiring a lot of local workers, the residents of Camden, and the truly devastated neighborhoods that make up most of the city arts seeing much affect as far as I can see I interviewed about a half dozen community activists. And here we have a piece of tape from Columbus Kelly Francis. He's the chair of the local and AA CPI chapter not moving into Canada. And they do not shop these save candidate. They come in at nine, and they leave the Camden downtown at five o'clock town the school district in Camden recently announced it's closing to more schools and has a twenty seven million dollar deficit. So, you know, the city has a long way to go. You can read the entire story. And listen to the two part radio story and CR chart that details all of the Norcross related tax breaks at WNYC dot org. WNYC's Nancy Solomon. Thank you for joining us. Thanks, david..

"I'm Richard Hake. When Phil Murphy became governor of New Jersey. He immediately took aim at Chris Christie's massive expansion of the state's tax break program money flowed from taxpayer's pockets into a black hole. I Murphy ordered up an audit. Then a task force to investigate at the center of the inquiry is one point six billion dollars in tax breaks to help rebuild the city of Camden and bring a wealth of benefits to New Jersey's most powerful political boss. It's part one of our yearlong series with propublica. The real bosses of New Jersey WNYC's Nancy Solomon reports the mayor of Camden was scheduled to make his annual keynote speech before business leaders and real estate developers in the nation's poorest cities. But instead he introduced a rarely seen but powerful man, he is a businessman a healthcare visionary philanthropist, and one of the strongest advocates this city has ever had the silver-haired insurance. Broker does not hold elected office. But he's known for exercising. Power behind the scenes chairman, George Norcross third. Norcross offered a forty five minute defense of his good deeds in Camden, shedding today. The state tax breaks that have drawn private investment to the city the construction early completed by these companies is about one point four billion already. So it looks to me like the stake out a pretty good deal. Norcross gotten a good deal to an examination of the program by WNYC and propublica finds that at least one point one billion dollars out of the one point six billion tax breaks. In Camden, went to Norcross, his company, his business partners and political allies and clients of his brother Phillips law firm records show, Philip Norcross, his law firm, Parker mccay and his lobbying company Optimus partners represented at least six companies that received Camden, tax breaks and his brother Donald a state Senator turned congressman was a co sponsor of the twenty thirteen Bill that made it. Possible. Rob Duffy of New Jersey, working families and advocacy group says it appears Norcross helped to create a law that directly benefited him. You have an unelected insurance executive who's in charge of the dominant political party New Jersey, and it looks like he's used that power to enrich himself and enrich his friends and enriched family taxpayers should be outraged. That's because ever since the rules were rewritten in twenty thirteen they are funding. Some of the biggest tax breaks in state history. It was meant to create jobs says will Irving of Rutgers University who co wrote a twenty eight teen review of the program that was mandated by the legislature. What raises eyebrows is the difference between the cost per job of the other awards, most comparable to other states except for Camden. Whereas these were significantly higher by orders of magnitude. The researchers found a subset of thirteen Camden tax break. Wchs with an average cost per job of thirty four thousand dollars a year. That's three hundred forty thousand total over the ten years of the tax break per job. At least nine of those thirteen companies in that subset had varying degrees of connection to George Norcross. But Norcross in an interview with WNYC and propublica says, they're the ones taking the risk my partners invested three hundred million dollars champion, and almost all of that is coming back to them Norcross in two business partners.

But now, welcome you all to the first public hearing. This is the task force appointed by governor Phil Murphy to investigate the tax break program. The hearing began with testimony from a woman who had worked for a company that got a tax break to remain in Jersey City after threatening to move its jobs to either New York or Florida and with regard to the application, what was put in the application that different alternatives out of state alternatives are being considered out of state alternatives being considered correct?

Pigments that program is intended simply to encourage people to move to those cities. That's it doesn't contemplate or you thinking about moving out of state. We'd like to stay in state, but Tim Walden. Who's the lead investigator on the governor's task force says that's not consistent with the way the interpreted or administered the law records show the approved the application from Norcross, his company based on. The company's assertion that one hundred fifty seven jobs were at risk of leaving the state in a lengthy response. Just yesterday evening Norcross said the company considered moving to Philadelphia because they already had one hundred staffers working there. But he said he and his partners would rather be in Camden tomorrow. We look at how Norcross and his two brothers helped convince the state legislature to rewrite the tax program in the first place.
