"Things are rough today. Mister Flanagan send me a bad joke. I'm like all right here. We go and I've filled that request a few times and help them with their research papers too. The teachers are working hard rest assured and they are happy to receive the emails from parents and kids so stay. Stay in contact. And we're here for you so Mary. Kay Rebecca thank you so much for being part of the conversation and Jodi. We had one guest. We were going to I think it was the owner of CO owner with his wife. Julie of Great Harvest Bread. I think Dave is Ready on the line somewhere they do. David call on my line. David thank you for being with US. Great Harvest so you guys are open for business. What sort of challenges are you facing? And and and how are people connecting connecting with you all? I would say that challenge for everyone but We're we're very fortunate that we've been able to stay open throughout the whole crisis and the community just is that outstanding and it's been beyond the Northville community truly is Included PLENTY AETNA lie? Lavonia Alpi fi but The community you know they've they've called. They've made sure that they've come on in Major that Julian I are okay and and fraud. It's not only heart wyoming but it's just A testament to the fact that everybody just kind of galvanized through this through this crisis so specifically you know we think we're trying our best to say open We we definitely have seen impact on the on the business in terms of you know really three things that Julia talked about. In the first week is almost hourly by It's how how can we I keep going but really one of the things that can make us close and the three big things were the government mandates coming down from whitmer or any other establishment. I'll be a local authorities or Some of the food related authorities in the state so Darmon could closes or keep us open and then it's hard to go to vendors because very quickly on their star supply chain issue could get the product that we needed to be able to Make our sandwiches and our sleeves and our breads to stay in business. Then Lafley was the employees themselves We we have a a large contingency of elderly employees and then we also have some have battled through some medical issues and As at this point everyone is doing great nobody had any issues at all but Eight which represents Moore third of our team have self selected out of the bakery and God bless them. We're totally totally comfortable. In fact encourage it all the time for them to stay home. Stay quarantined But it does make the jobs a little bit more challenging but government sad world caves stay. Alton vendors. We we've worked out situations with them so they can drop their product and go Sometimes it's an icebox but but we get it and We can keep going and then employees have just been outstanding working Sometimes double shifts to to make sure that We can get the product out. The fourth would be the customers. But that's never been an issue throughout this whole ordeal. They're is like okay? Hey when can we jump product? Hey are you guys doing okay? I are are you making out? Yeah so the customers have never been an issue. Ross thank goodness so those are the ways. That's really impacting. The business kinda strategically thank you. David thank you and good luck in we want all the businesses in Northville and in northville township to survive this and thrive once. We're once we're back in action so I appreciate you being with us to share. Story is so what have you? What are your hours of operation? Now if people wanNA visit you Or visit you but again get in touch and connect so we've bonafide our schedules slightly so we're open six days rather than seven days a week. WE'RE NOT ON TIME. Sundays right now and were ultimate from seven thirty until six o'clock and we actually do have our lobby open. Although during the crush of Easter we are going to be closing it. we've worked with officials and we very quickly as everybody else's done Put parameters on our windows on our doors and then really on our floors to make sure that Social spacing social distancing is occurring. And we also make sure that there's no more than five people in our lobby But it's been going very well. Within the first couple days we had never gone to curbside pickup And this really encouraged us for obvious reasons to go to a curbside pickup. So we offer curbside in the front and the rear of our store The customers have really really welcomed it But then obviously with every single change you make. There's one more thing To think about which we've modified are now to where telling people please open up your Trucks because obviously for their safety and then for the safety employees want to minimize any type of Personal contact so we haven't curbside stray like everyone else we're Kling Kling Kling cleaning and then Craig's more We talked our employees daily to make sure that they're comfortable working. Obviously if they're healthy enough to work but It's not just a physical thing. Obviously it's a mental thing to want to make sure that that they're okay And so far. It's been working out very very well but You know we're open six days a week right now We find keeping that going as long as the three primary factors. Don't shut us out and Just very thankful to the customers communities artists. Dave thank you thank you for being with US I got. I got another question for Mary. Kay Murky Like I said I was. I was on a podcast yesterday for educators talking and the question they posed was I answered. I'm curious how you would answer it. what do you think the the government? The governor could have done better in the process of closing the school buildings. I guess I feel like the unless you had closed it before. We even had two cases announced that on March tenth in the evening we had the first two cases announced in Michigan and by Friday Northville Schools was oh so Acted fast in that regard and I think that would he likes closing schools when you talk about large gatherings of kids. That is the very definition of school. So I guess only the only thing initially is an initial guidance for though and and again it was just for two days But the idea that we could somehow reconfigure cafeterias and in a rival in dismissal in groups of hand that just doesn't work when you have twenty five hundred kids it as you know. North. Ohio so I I do think that You know we've tried. We've gotten communication and it took some time to get this executive order to gather. It's it's pretty temperate heads of by Again this is balancings wolves with businesses with with All the PCP needs and and first responders. So I guess in that regard I would just say we all need some grace because we're grappling with an unprecedented situation and I think everyone is is really trying to to act in good faith and of course as more information has come from the CDC and so on the social distancing is of the utmost importance and we're finding out more about that so again. I will have some lessons. Learned Movie Awkward But I I guess from my lands you know. They have to quickly. Pretty quick turnaround time for closing schools and in the interim period our kids learned to wash their hands and the all figured out how long it takes for twenty seconds to go by what saw. Let's get you twenty seconds. Yeah so I guess the Rebecca. Do you have anything to add so that near lands? Yeah the only thing I would add and I think Director modular would appreciate. This is that we are in the middle of a emergency. Deploying our emergency operations plan I think we're all going to go back after after this is over. Look back at it and reassess. What planning we had in place and what we need to to move forward. Yeah I it was a loaded question. That's how I answered to two is like I don't know what they could have done better and I think I think they're doing a really good job. I think our state is is doing a a really good job at trying to manage. This unmanageable situation. And I WANNA thank you all for everything we go. Can I ask a couple of words since the Chamber represents four hundred small businesses in this community.

"Some supports families underway right away so Since marched well We have served over ten thousand meals. I know often folks feel like there aren't families in need and Northville and and that's an emily. We have lots of folks that I are in need of support and so Really heads off to our food services and into everyone else that got underway Within a week rarely and appreciate the states for four funding meals anyone over the Under the age of eighteen and any student with special services Through the age of twenty six. So that's happening a couple times week. we also have deployed over Nearly three hundred forty devices Again our Hickok routines are managed in a way to to Knowledge the physical distancing. That's required so you've been able to get that down to a science and we also have a social emotional hotline that were able to establish that snap term. -mergency follow up at four. Just those folks that are reaching out meeting connection and and we acknowledge that our kids like we lost kind of the world as we knew it. Our kids Whilst that action was wall so as we moved into the next couple weeks really providing resources for parents and then hearing back from our parents and our teachers we step that up with a weekly learning plan in and also started Our teachers have been reached out families. And if you can imagine our world then getting used to zooming in and doing our business We're now about getting our our kindergarteners speak connected with and and what it needs to be part of assume conference so those were the kinds of things that have been underway really for the past three weeks and I know all of us out an ages But it's really just been a few weeks and with the governor's executive order. We were already shifting in terms of our planning or what that might look like distance learning and so were now in in that process of phasing are considering what that means for the rest of this year so I would say you know certainly Everyone is then Entirely understanding of the fact that these are important steps for that house old. You have our community By with the announcement last Thursday came one more loss. I mean the loss of the hope that we were GONNA get back together. No before the end of the school year so our teachers our families have been circling about exactly what their plan a look likely until to launch on. Monday and again. We're just starting with that whole piece of social emotional support each acting goodness with their teachers and then taking a look at at once. Meaning fallen appropriate for kids You know Monday through the end of the school year and just also need to acknowledge a kind of the heartbreak especially for senior. Sue or to graduation as we knew it and and The ceremonies that mark the end of the year and everything from Honors convocation to water wars so We're having to rethink those kinds of things l. And what right now. Our focuses on getting back into kind of a schedule and rejecting kids and families And then after that we'll we'll circle with our seniors than and create new ways To honor and acknowledge Regulation and their next steps and and do that certainly won't replace at was before but will create some new opportunities knowledge. They add we are committed to doing no harm to students in in this process of being separated from school so certainly Also went to acknowledge our families are in a variety faces. Any of our parents are frontline. Health care OP professionals And many of us will be impacted by loss and so as we move into our next trying to be very mad thankful of of how to support kids families are staff who themselves may be affected and in really kind of walking that line to realizing that we're never going to replace the classroom. This what we're doing here is nat a replacement for in person Class but that's sad we we do have opportunities. Enacting support learning at then Lend me do love and get back together whenever that might be whatever wherever kids are at that time as we're going to pick up and over there were certain that we're taking care of one another and and Filling gaps in learning when we get back together so Rebecca's then working Really on the nuts and bolts so If you have any questions now or she can tell us a little bit more about He and how we're getting ready for this next phase. Yes so what we've found. I teach at Frazier High School. And we're really really lucky and we were aware of the curve. We had a very generous community that passed a few bonds in last Just recently and then seven years ago. Every student in our district had advice K. through K. through eight had an IPAD. Every kid in the high school had a laptop and on the thirteenth. We're like okay. Some kids wouldn't take them home. We're like okay. Everybody needs to take their device home so we were very very lucky in that regard but still running into a lot of trouble because of this digital divide is really exposing itself. There's kids that just don't have wi fi access or internet or cable access at home or they are the caregivers they're taking care of younger siblings or I teach English twelve. I do Yearbook newspaper broadcasts in English twelve. I have four sections being twelve. So I've got one hundred ten seniors crying me all the time and and but a lot of those kids. They're working at grocery stores and they're working in in the food industry and sometimes their parents are out of work and they're pulling more hours now than they were when they to help support the family because they're the only one whose job is still a job right now and so there's a lot of challenges is there's a there's a one point five million kids in in the state and we need one point five million resolutions to the problem but the digital divide. Rebecca how how is Northville addressing the digital? Divide as as it. You know inevitably creeps up and becomes a challenge for for teachers and parents and students. So that's a great question and and one that has been weighing on all of our minds and Hartson energies as we as we come up with as you said a million different ways to serve a million different needs. I just just want to kind of circle back to the question you had asked me earlier in my mis teacher..

"The downtown is always been the community events parades festivals concerts. And you might not have an answer right now but I think I'll just ask the question So when the stay at home is lifted. Do you see Business as usual of. Ucs You the implementing still some some social distancing if we are able to to maybe do some of these events. That's a great question. Jody from our standpoint you want and do as many activities as possible. We just passed the Maryland. Christ Myself Barbara at the Giza Sam. Just past our activities all the way through twenty one on one event for having a downtown even did a couple exceptions to have even more we can shut down doubt downtown. Norfolk down every Against other venues we have a venue behind the city fall. We have a venue down really at Ford field. We're GONNA be using more in the future and even at north downs in the future as we have a heart down there and down by the Plant we own that agreement space. So we are. It's a great question we are going to stay with. The policies and procedures are direction from the state in County We would like to get up and running in assist. Bring PEOPLE IN UNITED. Talk to we've had to push back the start of the farmers market and pushed back some different things. But I would folk. I don't think it'll ever be like it was before norm will all be a little bit more careful on things but I would like to try. I think we as a city liked. Try to get going as quick as possible but number one safety of our citizens is our first concern but we just approved Two exceptions have a more vents. Brawley downtown than we've had in the past and we're trying to open up other venues. I think it in the weeks to come. Jogi that will come in to the forefront. But nope we're very supportive if we say no limit there's some a yes we are the town for. North local norcal township really know buying some of these events. So we're GONNA to you support. Thank you all right Brian. Another question so you taking using our time at home. I've been doing a ton of yard work and in my city. They're not picking up the yard clippings yet. What about track? What about trash pickup? What is going on with trash pickup? And what's going up with the yard clippings because I see Brown's why should I I am this week? It is a city situation. It's waste management. Had So many people sick that they don't have enough drivers for the trucks so we have postponed. It was supposed to start this week for our yard. Waste into go out. It is not a city. It's a situation. They just don't have enough capacity. I think that will be lifted in the next couple of weeks. We are rating from communication from Waste Management. So No it's not the city or the township. What have you timed? It is the capacity. We would rather have our garbage picked up first priority and then eventually you know our yard way so great question because it's been so nice in everybody has to do something everybody's outside out there at this point in. We really have had in the past because people are doing earlier so that. That's from our standpoint. Bob might have another just to just to give you the information from the township. We have a different Service we have. Gif F. L. G. F. L. is picking up yard waste for the township because they do have the capability and the driver. So far. They're picking up everything Yard waste the recyclables in garbage so just for township residents just know that they can go ahead and continue to do that. Do the yard work and put out the waste point just for the city. It's Delayed probably a week or two Pat Sullivan's on here he give you more information. Are you there? I am here mayor. Which you said is correct. Waste Management is temporarily suspended. That service again. We hope it's just a short term two or three weeks situation if it goes beyond that We might look at them. Alternative Ride that service or we might give Jeff Allen Tall and see if they wanNA come over here and pick up yard waste row. I'll be happy to pay them to do it. And was there anything else you know after we went through the beginning. Anything that you'd like to add to that one jeeter chime in just to you know. Thank the township in the community for the great partnership that we have here I don't think we ever take that for granted. We know we've got a good thing going. But when we have a situation like this it's it's really good to be part of that partnership and We aligned our shifts in the police department to work with the township and were paired to back each other up either. Want a short handed. And that's a great thing and we appreciate that just some of the more mundane services that That we provide that Are changed like everything has changed. In this way. Shit you could still do business with the City Hall. Even though it's close to the public you can make payments electronically. We have information on our website. And tell us do that. Or you can draw payments off at dropbox. There's any situation that you need address that you can't That you can't instinctively online clues. Give us a call at City Hall one of US Call. You back in Get that taken care of The mayor covered the garbage in yard way. Situation Building inspections have been limited have been limited to What the state says things that are considered essential to the sustainment of protection of life. So it's really necessarily like weather proofing. The building or utility hooked up or something that's safety related and again call our building apartment if you have any questions but that kind of service is limited right now as are a lot of our permits that we issue We have you one hundred units senior urban building Allen terrorists in the city. And we're very concerned because that's a you know it's you know vulnerable population so we have We have limited Visitors to that building and I know Barbara Morowski Brown one of our Council members helping with the providing groceries to folks. That don't want to go out and go to the store. So we have made provision there to protect those folks as best we can and yet still provide the services that they need to get things in and out of the building we also We have a huge air road project planned for this summer and one of the first things they wanted to do was replace water main and shut the water off so unfortunately even though that's very necessary work We delayed that because at a time when everybody's home needs to wash their hands Several Times a day. We didn't WanNa have to shut the water off so we're going to maintain that position through the end of April. It goes beyond. That will have to think about you know. At some point we need to take care of that vital infrastructure. So we'll have to make about every service that we provide impacted right now. We're trying to figure out a new way to do all the things we have to at. Would you date folks on voter registration for Northville In terms of what the absentee voting The question was posed earlier in the township answered about City clerk being availa township clerk being available what what his vote was Northville. Doing so are voters can be prepared for August and November. Know I wouldn't encourage you to E Mail Clerk Diane Massa on that sure there's a way that we can Make ballots available or get applications to people so that we can riding that service but I encourage them to contact the courts. Ops THANKS EXPAND. I appreciate the update. Gentlemen thank you so much so Maryland prices you and Barbara's with us and Patrick you guys are part of the city government as well.

How many months have you been on the job? Oh where am I so Way To start with a bang. Yeah yes it's been interesting So it's certainly interesting dynamics to deal with as as you taken on the new position My co-host for a couple of my podcasts. And My business partner Matt. Fox's with a as well but so Bob Todd What's going on a- at the township level The covert nineteen. What what concerns are are there that you guys have that you're trying to care for the people of the Northville Township's well thank you for giving us this opportunity. I WanNA thank you and jody. Especially for doing this podcast. This gives us just yet another source to reach out to our residents in addition to our Websites are social media and so forth. Where we've been trying to post updates the things that are going on in the township I've been a hosting I'm glad tides with us because I'll give you a little bit of an overview and then tied will give you some specifics. I think that will You'll find interesting but in terms of the you know in terms of the township of I guess the first most important thing in his air there's crisis arena is at at like to at least assure residents that everyone at the township is doing everything possibly that Janet do two things and that's keep residents safe and also to continue to provide essential services so those are our main goals of operation. Obviously the most important as our police in our emergency services through our firefighters and frankly they're handling an incredible number of calls there are front line a reverse freeze finders and those are the folks we need to really protect and I WANNA thank chief. Fire Chief of Brent Segel because he's been instrumental in obtaining You know the personal protection equipment. We've commonly referred to that as PP without that are first responders or not protected. And we'd have to see service so far. He's able to arrange in obtain those along with our police chief Paul Pennies and I'd like to shout out to him and thank them for all the work that they're doing. We're still in operation. We're GONNA try to stay in operation as long as we possibly can to As long as this crisis continues I would say this that we really really do need at this time. The public's help I know that there's all kinds of speculation as windies this Peaking when this thing is GonNa peak whether a week or two weeks or whatever but it is critical now if you look at some of the statistics which I will give you for the county as of yesterday county had three thousand two hundred sixty seven confirmed cases and one hundred sixty two deaths. The township has forty-six cases and three deaths as of yesterday. So this is. This is a critical toll this heat's climbing every day. We don't know how long it's GonNa go on. But I know that it's inconvenient for people to stay at home and it's an aggravation not to go outside. But we really WANNA keep the distance and the social distancing and try to protect Our first responders so that they don't yet in infected in. It's easier for the the emergency services folks because they've got everything but we get a tremendous number of of calls for our our police and a Lotta Times. They have to go to houses and they don't have all of the equipment that they need because the calls are different they're not in ems medical Paul. So I'd like to Just do a couple of other things. Let you know that. What's going on in the township. Which was your key questions. So I didn't want to take too much of an introduction but give you an overview we have closed the township to the Public. We then closed the township to our voice. Everybody is working remotely and we've got Our Director Marina Moran Fred Chat Treasurer. Working to make sure that all the services continue and checks get paid and an checks get issued to pay bills etc etc. So we doing all that and then you know. I don't know how it is with the city and and so forth but we still have to deal with all the normal Issues or Clark is still operating and you know. We have several elections and none of those none of the Deadlines have been postponed yet by the governor. So we've got an August election for all of the all of the people of the township are up for reelection and we have a millage election. So there's going to be a lot going on here as soon as As soon as we move on the parks and REC to tell you we've closed the Parkson. We closed the parks and REC. We've closed the the playground equipment yield so that people can't get gathering areas but we've kept open our Pathways Walkways and encouraged people to go outside and do that. That's kind of consistent with what the school district did. And we appreciate They're working in concert with us I would say this that we are keeping transfers recordkeeping transportation open for seniors and will keep those as long as we've got drivers so that's an important point Our local businesses one. Quick thing I want to point out that happen just Friday and I got some confirmation today in a conference call with the county is that they had a loan program for small businesses but it was limited to had ten million dollars and it was limited to businesses that were in low income communities. They just expanded that so it will go to our communities. They've added another four million dollars to that and it's going to be processed through T. CF bank With loans up to fifty thousand dollars and the filing deadline is now extended until June thirtieth. So that's great. News for our local Local businesses. So where's.

"We are here with. Jodi Humphries Executive Director of the Northville Chamber of Commerce to talk about the events and programs in the coming year. I'm excited so Jodi are coming off a very busy twenty nineteen with the new decade upon us. Let's talk a little bit about what's ahead for the chamber in two thousand twenty. Maybe you could start with Some of the new programs. You've got going on. Yeah so we You know the more we were interviewing and meeting with new members. We discovered that they're getting younger. They're younger than I am. That's for sure But then they were requesting. Is there a special group That could meet forty and under and we didn't have one so we decided we needed one so we have fuel which is future Leaders of something. I can't I can't remember what the acronym for. But it's kind of a cool logo. So fuel is our forty and under networking group and they've met As of when this airs probably three times. So we're kind of letting them frame how they want that group to be so Lindsay who's our My assistant and Associate Director of the Chamber is closer to forty certainly than I am. So she's leading up the charge and she met with the group and Gave Him idea what we've done in the past with other groups and but going to let them decide where they want to take it since you know. We believe they probably. There's a lot of similarities but also with that group they've got their own ideas and the way that they want to communicate with each other so I'm excited to see what they come up with. But I definitely believe that healthy organizations need to to span the demographics so Yeah our boomer. Group is kind of leaving us and they're becoming more of our public consumers And then we've got the millennials and the next group coming on board so we've got a good mix so Yeah excited about that. So is this a group? Are they kind of meeting in the morning or they meet after? Fm The start in the morning okay. but again they could end up doing happy hour hours or whatever. Kinda works for them so I know you know the first meeting. We had the chamber But then they were going to go over to amity co working So they've been there and then we'll see where they go from there but it's definitely up to them and how they wanna tackle it so again. It'll be fun. That's neat to see this new energy. Yeah no those of us but in the workplace for a long time tremor right. are widely veterans So we bring that to the table but you know I remember remember back in the day when you first started out sure right eyed and bushy tailed and we're going to take on the world. So that's what they're doing so it's fun to see them. That's great work. So that's great. Do you like that part of of Meeting with these new businesses. Because they do and they are. They're at all different segments and ideas and what they're doing exciting. Yeah very very exciting and you also have. Is it see it support it? What that. It's kind of a little branding opportunity. We did in it and I kinda thought of it when I won't name names but was talking to kind of a major business in town and they have three big locations in Northville. Am I going to say who it is? But and they will not participate in anything that we do. So I Kinda Got Mad. I was like really you know you're okay. Maybe from a business perspective. You know you're so big. You don't need our marketing arm or anything like that. But what I've always said about the chamber is every business should be involved with their community and I think that's the one of the best things that we do. Is We connect business with community? Sure and they weren't budging and I thought you know what I think. People need to know and recognize those businesses in this community. That not only are smart enough to take advantage of what the chamber can offer but are also supporting the chamber And what we do for the community in terms of the fourth of July parade the farmer's market those big iconic community events that the chamber manages and presents and the reason we can do that certainly because of our membership so we just created a new little brandy in that says see it support it. It's a decal we've asked them to put that In their Businesses and so for the public when they go out there. You see that you should give them Atta boy. You know maybe a little extra here and there but I just think that that you know we've always had decal that said your chamber member with the year and I think but I really think this kind of I think maybe some people don't realize some of the things. The chamber does in terms of those community events. That's probably true that's probably true. Yeah really do love the right. A huge parade of any community. You've got ahead. So yes we've been kind of passing them out and we'll be giving him new members homes. Great Yeah is a profile. A little bit too keeps it out this my anger that creative moment well there you go and all good there so let's talk a little bit about maybe a couple of the upcoming events. I know there's something in March isn't March madness. You're doing a little get together. We're at the sports okay. A little networking event and that came about because last year we had a net. We're working event and I wasn't very smart because we had it on the evening of the first day of the NCAA basketball tournament. Probably five people there and I thought well Duh. I wouldn't I wouldn't either so we just thought well this will be fine. We'll be over the sports stand's starting at one till about five and so Sam at the sports. Dan is going to be a great host. And we're going to hang out and we've just invited Oliver Chamber members to swing through just by down with us And we'll watch the games and just chit chat meet each other and have a good time so I'm looking forward to it. That sounds like fun and then of course in April I think April fifteenth. If I'm not mistaken the very always popular state of the community luncheon grass. Yes I always say. Who'S WHO OF WHOVILLE? Everyone shows up. Everybody is so true. So the community gathering yes. It is so we're going to a new format this year. You WanNa talk about that. Yeah sure I don't think that Mary Kaye or Brian or Bob. No it yet but We're going to change the format so we're going to give us questions and I'm GonNa give them let them pick six questions and then we'll make sure that each of them get for sure. Get to those questions and then we may open up. Open it up for some people but we'll be we'll be kind kind of monitoring the time of sure they'll the Gilgit to certainly address like I said those things that they see important in one present but we'll be able to to manage that event a little bit because it's just was going too long and I think people appreciate that so yeah that'll be good so again it'll be Bob Are Township Supervisor Bob. Knicks and Brian Turnball our new mayor and then Mary Kay the Chevron tenant against sure but yeah I mean everybody shows out almost I almost feel like it's like Seeing the first robin it it really is a sign of spring round. Who Truly is and it. Kinda kicks off the craziness to two of what's to come out of what's to come so let's move on from there. I am then you know the the people the Chamber lives become very different after that. There's lots of going on so besides all the membership stuff That's happening We'LL START IN. May with the program which we you know has a special place in Oliver Hart and you get you get props for that. Because you're the one who brought the idea to US And so what we started. What do we do? We started the first year with what thirty two. Maybe I think and I think we're up to one hundred and fifty all mike. Gosh Yeah Yeah so I think we have just a couple's probably by the time this airs. We won't have any space for this installation. So they'll all go up may first downtown up the whole month of May and then we'll have a little reception For the families and friends which did lash. Yes which was really nice. Ever we brought in a The Birmingham Community Band have a patriotic concert. Remember it was free thirty four degrees. It was freezing. Everybody hunker down. Yeah well here where we are now which was sure realize workshop but he just had a great time. Yeah it was really Nice Nice it was. I think what I liked about that. Was that was multi generational absolutely saw maybe grandma or GRANDPA and the daughter and the son and the grandkids and if we were lucky enough to have the person actually being honored which I think I think we had one just had a veteran. Yeah family brought him. It was wonderful and a lot of a lot of emotion there. Yes talking to the woman who had done it for husband who had passed away but she was so proud of him and just talking about him and we were all getting you know teary eyed but So yeah we'll kick that that's a great way to kick off. You know really are are crazy. Events seasons absolutely that'll be may and then followed closely on that will be the farmer's market Another fan favorite in the commute absolutely and the farmers market just so folks know is in the same location. It's always been at. It's not movie or no no. It's that's where it's at you for clarifying. Yes yes we get the question of the day but now we will It's going to be there that hours it'd be it's eight to two It became pretty obvious that our vendors were were just about ready to pass out by the time we're getting three and I think people forget the market might make might start at eight but I have vendors that. Get there at four thirty in the morning. Yeah we have vendors driving from grand rapids from Alpena. It's a long day for them. So just you know and we spent the last hour just trying to keep people on site because we we require vendors to stay till three yeah and the market is pretty by that point. Yeah. Our peak is like eight to noon. And the drop saw you get you know. It's just as long day so it'll be eight to two besides that it's it's going to be what everyone loves the same absolutely. We all look forward to him for sure. Yeah you WanNa talk a little bit about Do you WanNa talk a little bit more about branding or anything else that you're doing new website last year. We did the new website which we really need to because it was it was awful. It didn't have any bells and whistles so we went and put a chunk of change downing at some bells and whistles and so it's fantastic. I mean are I've always said that north chamber is kind of A. It's a hybrid. It's the Chamber Traditional Chamber. It's visitors and Convention Bureau and it's an event marketing firm So our website covers all of that and I think it's probably has more information about the community than any other website so it was good portal into north Lutely absolutely And so I think that's great for members because our members are on there with the directory and they've got All of them have In Click on the business name. And I'll take you to that page and we've actually offered at enhanced web page where they can add even more information pictures video media more descriptions more links to their website so that that kind of upgrade their social presence Through US so. I'm really happy about that so I really love everything about it. And then there's the boring stuff the no one wants to hear about but the back of the house stuff sure. For the Chamber Scher streamlined. We have a small staff so we were. You know something that was taking us. Five steps now takes us to on a super powered yeah And then the other thing I think you know for all of us who are really small. Small businesses is to get with tech the technology. You have is always changing. You're always seem like you're always trying to as soon as you get it. It's obsolete easily show when we signed up with this. It's called groped zone chamber. Master is a national company so anytime something new hits the market there on it which is yeah we were you know one of those things where we get the website done by somebody and then that was it. Yeah in so. Meanwhile you know. The world is spinning spinning. Were already behind. Yeah so really happy with that. So I think that sets up the chamber for the future well and it looks great in the navigation on it is great to. It's very easy to find things and it's easy for us to go through a web designers or anything right. We can very user friendly. I know when I first started. I've been here fifteen years. We had a website where we would. We would have to type up what we wanted on it and email it to this person who was working out of their house and they got to it in a week we were happy event was over. Yeah Yeah I mean you know..

"Is food biggest part. It's not like they can come to you and say well. I did this for three months. I'm great I'm Outta here. Now how do you? How do you get our route to clients and say this? Is this a lifestyle change? You really have to do something. It's the hardest part honest with you. The first question they asked me is. How often do I have to come? That was my next question. How badly do you want this goal quickly? Do you want to achieve it and so it really comes down to putting in the effort and the money now to save yourself from a lot of heartache. Later on in life and I'm just I just see it every day. You know my own parents. They're you know in their early seventies now and they're really struggling a lot of back pain and It's something that can be prevented and unfortunately just like anything in life. You know your career. You're not going to become the boss overnight. It's not going to take three months. It's going to take twenty years thirty years and I'm not saying it's GONNA take thirty years to achieve your physical status that you'd like but you have to put in. The work has to be every single day. Now are there things that you can give to your clients that they can be doing when they're not at your at your center when they're not working with you absolutely it. It does depend on their fitness level. I should have to make sure that they're not going to hurt themselves right on their own. So if they're a beginner I'll usually start with some stretching do on their own just so that when they come see me through a little bit more mobile and they can move through a greater range of motion without pain And then is they become. You know a a M- a more experienced lifter. Then I can start giving them a little bit more homework to do on their own if they if they want it. Sure okay now for those. That are athletes. Oftentimes you here. There's not a warm up period before people will start running or playing tennis and that often is the cause of injuries. They just jump in without any kind of warm up. Do you see that. Not only injury. But you're really limiting your body's ability to perform its best The warm up is so important. And there's different kinds of warm-ups depending on what you're about to take part in the physical activity by to take part in but if I'm if I'm going to the gym man I'm I'm GonNa be lifting a substantial amount of weight. I WANNA be able to fire on all cylinders show and the warm up is not only important to prevent injury but is it will allow me to to lift more efficiently effectively. So there's it's it's a very important part of the piece of the puzzle right and it's important to learn how to do a proper warm up as well sure so before we wrap up. Let's just go back a little bit to talk about the nutrition piece because you are also a nutrition coach. So is this something where you talk to your clients about proper nutrition. Proper eating what they need to be doing more. You mentioned we don't hydrate enough. We probably are consumed with processed foods. Which I'm sure isn't doing any of us any favors. There's we're in the age of information right so you can go on the computer and and in. It's a great thing because we have so much information at our fingertips on the other side of that. It's a double edged sword because for people that don't know any better it's hard to sift through all the information because not all of it is well thought out and well researched information and so. I have a lot of people coming to me asking about this diet. That died this kind of cleanse. And before you jump into a diet that's really going to restrict you. It's important to have a solid foundation. I if you're not able to eat just whole organic foods then starting to restrict this that and the thing is really GonNa make it difficult to to to eat that way long term and so what I see. All the time is people will jump into some really restrictive diet and they'll cut cut out all these things and they'll do it for a while until they just can't do it anymore. And then they'll bounce back and then they'll put on more weight than they than they did before and so. My approach is long term sustainability. So it's finding out most people don't even have any grasp of what the every day they have. No idea what they're putting in their bodies so it's all about becoming more aware of what's in your food. What are you eating and then learning how to make healthy choices and a lot of the time? That's all it takes and then once you can start doing not consistently again. It has to be consistent. Then they start seeing the weight kind of starting to drop off as easy as that really is well but consistency is consistency. Sort of all across the board. Absolutely I mean with every few could put yourself over the edge in one weekend. You know you've worked so hard money and then you're like well diets out the window for the weekend. And then you know you've kind of put yourself you created a caloric deficit is is what we call it. And then over the course of today's you've reversed that and then we're back to where we started so I'm not saying that you can't go out and have fun from time to Time. But if if your goal is weight loss than you have to be consistent with keeping not top of mind at least for a little while until the needle starts moving okay and once you've achieved your goal weight then we can you know become a little bit a little bit more relaxed in in what you put in your body but there has to be an effort there otherwise. It's just never going to happen. Okay Well Amanda. Thank you so much. Thank you sharing your story. And how can listeners reach you at iron journey fitness? Yeah you can.

"We are talking today with Jennifer fry township planner for the charter township of Northville. She is also a member of the north of Chamber of Commerce board of directors. So Welcome Jennifer. Thank you first. Why don't you give us a little bit of your background and tell us what you do? As the township's plan my background is in urban planning and landscape architecture. I went to Undergrad at Michigan State for Urban. Planning and then a master's degree at you for Landscape architecture and urban planning it was a dual degree As a township planner I really do all the day-to-day township planning activities meeting with residents meeting with developers answering questions I think the best part about my day is never the same day twice so But really anything that gets built or any regulations relative to township development are the types of things that I work on I also certainly work closely with our engineers and our building officials and in those kinds of people to Really help people through the process because A lot of times. It's it's new to people so we spent a lot of time helping people get through. The process shoe will something. How long have you been with the township? How long have you been the township planner seventeen years seventeen years and you grew up here You homegrown girl. Life has come full circle so well and and on that note What are the most transformative changes you've seen in the towns townships since you really started your tenure? Don't really. It's the amounted development in the westward expansion of development When I grew up here and played soccer we played actually at six mile and back which at the time was lapping fields Now it's stone water subdivision and I. I joke every think about every time I drive by the at the time when I was playing soccer. I didn't know where I was. I could have been South Lyon I could have been right and it was all dirt road. But now it's really the geographic center of the township so Just really the amount of development for relatively small township Typically townships in Michigan are twice the size of north township. But Norfolk and Plymouth We're actually one township at one time. And then they were split. So where a half township. So when you think about it in terms of the modern development that we've had for half a township it's really really a lot of it sure and just for the record. How large is the township is seventeen square miles? Seventeen months okay. So what are the most exciting projects that are currently going on in the township Probably the most exciting. I'd say is the project at five miles back. It's called the village North Feller. The van as we call it for short It's a mixed use project. It was a former state of Michigan. correctional facility on an operational for a number of years and through the state they surplus it in the township acquired it and then they went out to bid for requests for proposals and we had. I think three different ones that we vetted through the process and ultimately went with the Project that we did but we are looking at a true mixed use development in the city certainly is more familiar with those kinds of projects but the township. That's kind of a new thing for us We didn't necessarily want to replicate anything in the city but we did want to have options for residents to have close proximity to goods and services and to be able to walk and the connection to the park without was really an important one as well so that's been exciting for us to work on the component of it that Just reviewing right now. It's been approved but it's in the construction stages is a four storey Office UPSIDE APARTMENT BUILDING. Okay and it's called It's interesting construction. It's a wrap project with means is they're going to have a four story. Parking structure in the center of it and then wrap all residential units around it. So you won't see the parking that you would typically on the surface for you know almost three hundred apartment. Units is going to be Hidden in the middle. If you will. And then there'll be some surface parking around the perimeter but that's a very Unique design in a very Structurally is pretty significant departure from our standard project. So I think everyone is a township looking forward to being involved with that one too. So what else is also in that particular project in addition to the apartment so we have single family residential? We have one hundred eleven single family last. It's under construction now. Maybe a third of them are occupied. I believe there's a town home component with sixty four town home units Than the apartment. I think those two hundred eighty three and then. The last component is commercial right at the intersection right now. There's two multi tenant buildings that are under construction One has from Williams is a tenant. Okay five guys also coming to that location that'll be popular and then I watch There's a new one. I agree I have been more more exist so so yeah then there's also a Hilton home to a hotel. It's under construction right now. So if you drive by you'll see the block foundations for that. And then the future faces also Provide for a specialty grocery store in a free standing full service restaurant pads so well we don't know yet what grocer it is I think we've hoped for a lot of things but I think as the developments are to be occupied. It's GonNa be a little easier for a potential tenant to see why that's a good location. Sure for that. But some confident we'll get one We just don't know who is going to be. Okay okay Are there other developments on the horizon? Things you can share with us. Are there other things that are are popping up in the town? Shaam so long corridor the five mile quarter. We've branded it. The MIT see the Internet. Michigan International Technology Corridor. Sa- Joint Project with Norfolk township on the north side and then Plymouth township on the South side of the road. We probably met for over two years in our Committee has become much larger. We also have representation from the state from the county. Dt Energy and it. See and that's important because The users that were hoping to attract to that Are Large energy users? And in the past there's been problems with people making a commitment to make an investment but then the energy legs significantly farther behind and it it. is detrimental to the time. Line so We've been working with. Dte In it see. They have acquired a three Acre parcel from the township where they're going to put a substation and plans are underway to do that so We're we have capacity for a few projects to keep Online until that happens but then going forward we really see that that is going to be a means to provide energy for all of those users. The first user that is Norfolk township side is John. Ding they've constructed about a thirty thousand square foot office space to story other not in yet but they're very close to being in They do have plans to expand that building and then they have another site next door that they also own they may build or add onto or Maybe at a lake partner over there so I. We're excited to have them. They think they're ready to move in there. Just waiting on I think Phone lines sure now Going in the other direction standard Cooper has is is. They're moving along. It looks like it's getting close to completion. Pretty yes I believe they wanNA start stocking and you're going to get the go ahead to put in their furniture and start Doing the fittings inside of there. I think first quarter is what I heard. They hope to be in. Okay Um but yeah. They're they've done a lot of their their landscaping. His in everything was done in the fall. It's just really been working on the the interior stuff so so yeah that's GonNa be. I think about four hundred employees at that location. So that's IT'S A. It's a neat looking area. Yeah it's interesting now. To hear office design is so different from sure how it had been in the past and just put a lot of effort into group spaces and open areas and meeting spaces and huddle areas. They call him insurance thing. So yeah I think it's going to be a really cool place to work You've spent several decades in municipal planning. So could you talk a little bit about some of the biggest challenges? That are facing municipalities. Today whether it's township or a city or village or Certainly financially But the state revenue sharing and changes to that I think that's a struggle for a while I'M A. I don't know all the details of that but I certainly know that that has impacts to communities and it has to the township One that I am more familiar with is Getting people young people interested in the trades in the professions So for example building officials. I mean they're just not they're they're getting ready to retire and they're not Educating or people aren't going into that profession whether they don't know about it or you know so they they really see that as a knowledge drain. There's the it's There's not a lot of young people coming into it and I think that is going to be a concern concern because there's always going to be buildings there's always gonNA be inspect absolute was always going to be those kinds of things A lot of our Mechanical inspectors are retired from previous community are working here in retirement. But there aren't. They're not seeing. The young people going into those professions so hopefully That gap will decrease and people will start at least to know about it. I don't need a Lotta people know about those. I mean as professions People that might not be interested in maybe more engineering. The architecture the law those kinds of things but they're really good jobs and do really technical jobs sure absolutely suspending of challenges Roads so this is a point of discussion or contention throughout the community not just in township but but throughout the entire Northville community at and many others as well. So are there plans to address not just road conditions but congestion because there's more development comes in there's more cars on the roads. So how how do you deal with that? Or what is the unfortunately? I'm probably not the best person to ask about that All of the roads in the township are underwent counter extinction so while we get a lot of complaints We really don't have an ability to fix or plan or expand roads. We work with Wayne County we. We are in contact with them. A lot but You know they have their constraints as well So it's it's and they have a large geographic areas not just the township that Wing County is responsible for responsible for hundreds of communities throughout The county literal vying for small pots.

"They're really tight. Skin was all of course fair enough i could. Let's see what religion i am. Hello got an email here. My small dog is fearful of most humans. It's kind of like a chihuahua right <hes> <hes> he will not allow people to pet him. He's fine with our immediate family and a handful of visiting friends but <hes> in general he just barks at people and then runs away. <hes> doesn't show any signs of aggression but <hes> he's a. He's a barker into runner. How do i begin to adapt him to to others without forcing someone on him we've had friends <hes> corner him and pick him up and i don't think that has helped <hes> and he won't take treats from the hands of strangers yeah so how do you how do you get a small dog a like more people well. The the dog definitely has a bad association at this point. We don't know what with that is. Maybe it's just the dog's personality. Maybe something bad happened. We don't know and <hes> but what you need to do. Is you need to counter condition him. You need to desensitize awesome now. There's a key thing in there so you won't take treats right right but he might take a treat from you and <hes> whenever you have a problem like this. You need to get leverage so if the dog ugh won't take a treat what do you do. You have to make them more hungry. See so what you should do and there's if it's an adult dog. There's no harm in having him skip a meal once a week the food for a week one meal on awake now one clarifying okay so tuesday morning tuesday morning you don't feed them. Every every day in the morning will only feed him on tuesdays. No walk with me so i'm this particular tuesday morning. Oh you're not going to this one day. Okay so you don't feed them. You get home from work. This dog is hungry mrs meal now you expose him mm-hmm now personal now so what you do keep the dog on at least we can't run away. Don't let someone cornerman pick them up but when someone comes around now how often retreat something you don't normally give a little piece of hot dog or cheese or something he's hungry or now you have leverage because the dog will respond to the strongest stimuli in the environment to strongest longest stimuli is fear. He's going to run away. The strongest stimuli is on hunger. He'll take the treat hey if you take the treat then you've just replaced his previous previous understanding of what that encounter meant and you replace it with something else you inserted your own definition of that that encounter which is positive because he's getting a treat once he once you've done that a few times then the dog will start associating people with something more pleasant got it sure dog only gets those treats during those encounters like you're a genius remember to feed him on wednesday and the rest of the week. Okay okay if we have to and and then the next week try it again yeah yeah till till he's dealing with people and it doesn't have to be on tuesday. People are thinking oh you can only train. The dog on tuesday heard tuesday at the best day to train your dog. That's when the records used to come out but for the sake of jamie's understanding outstanding the story i had to pick a day had to kind of oh all right hi good morning. I'm getting sick.

About you know, the I just wondered I had a conversation with a couple of people who were talking about what was happening the border, and it was just it was just. Just unreal. Unreality? I had person talking talking to. Well, they'll never let these people across the border because they don't have blonde hair and blue eyes, you know. And you know, I have blonde hair relies they weren't confrontational. It was just like some something they had taken for granted, you know. And we're trying to convince the. People went on to say, I'm Mike Obama who is trying to bring us together. Trump using you know, racial hatred to drive us apart. And I just thought you know, I had lived the border for years, and I saw the reality of that. Which is you know, a war zone with a hundred thousand people dead and this last. Spillover slots, and you know, it needs to be. But I I question is is this like a mouthful read books indoctrination or projection transfer us on such psychological factors associated with. It was this. Yes, means it's mainstream media misrepresentation because the mainstream media, Mike as you may or may not know never talk about the million plus legal immigrants, we allow into this country from all over the world. I wouldn't care to hazard a guess as to how many of those folks are blue eyed blonds, or what difference it actually makes as long as they are people who agree to enter our country legally, and they do so in over a million a year and have done. So for the last eleven or twelve decades in particular back to the matter is this is not a racial issue. This is a human issue. Mike. Oh, yeah. There's no doubt about it. You know, the issue that I have with it when you know, they don't really talk politics. That's as though this is so such such a delicious so delusional. You know, the situation with the border has nothing to do with any. You know, it is the propaganda that the left mainstream media and the games are pushing. That's right. Reality.
