Pastor Russell B. Johnson Is a Recovering Politician

"With us now is pastor Russell Johnson the lead pastor at the pursuit northwest. I've seen many of his clips on social media. Russell, welcome to the program. You describe yourself as a recovering politician. Tell us about that. Yeah, it's an honor to be here. Thanks for the invite Charlie. Yeah, I spent about ten years in the public policy space and really kind of assumed that that is what I would give my life to. And God had other plans. And about my tenth year of working on campaigns and being a lobbyist and working for the state House of Representatives, God directed me into the church world. And we planted the church called pursuit 8 years ago. Just north of Seattle in a little town called snohomish, just opened a campus. I love snow home. It's gorgeous. It's funny. Yeah, it's a little town of about 8000, but, you know, we were seeing God really do some incredible things. And we just put a campus actually in Seattle two blocks from the University of Washington. And so we're just having fun here in the northwest provoking darkness and doing what we can to spread the light.

"My name is Jacob personally, I'm from northwest Arkansas. And but that's not the extent of your ministry or your work. You spend a lot of time in a far off distant land that people need to learn more about Armenia. That's true. Yeah, I spent 15 years in turkey, and then I've been the last 5 years in the country of Armenia. What work do you do there? So in Armenia, our main job is my main work is to mobilize. It's very similar to you, I mobilize people, young people, and the church is there to love their neighbors as Jesus taught us to. We need to love our neighbors as ourselves. And one of the ways we can do that is by taking Christian faith to Muslims. So it's really a lot of missions work, so I mobilize. I speak in front of audiences, and then we equip them, mobilize them, I'm a dean of a university for doing this type of work. And then we send them to the surrounding Muslim nations so that they can declare the gospel and plant new churches.

Malcolm Nance Discusses the Wayward Ukraninan Missle Hit on Poland

"This was obviously a huge relief this morning. The missile that hit Poland was probably a stray fired by Ukraine's air defense and not a Russian strike according to Poland and NATO. Yesterday, obviously easing concerns of an escalation. Just give us your thoughts. Well, first, you know, I've been in that relatively immediate area of where that strike. Where that missile exploded. A lot of activities were along the Polish Ukrainian border. And I did training out in that area, and we were under constant air raid alert. Constant air raid alert. And you know, these missiles take hours to fly to their targets. And they have to fly through several air defense zones. And each air defense zone, you know, has its own air control radars, air detection radars, and its batteries of surface to air missiles. And when you come into an area like where this hit, which is northwest of the city of lviv, those missiles had to have flown hundreds of miles to get there, right? To FYI you when they shoot those hypersonic missiles off of these bombers over western Russia, it's a 17 hour car drive from one end of Ukraine to the other. So it's a very long missile flight, even at three, 400 mph. It takes some time. So the air defense systems are waiting for you, right? And they try to engage you as far away as possible. In a 360° protective circle. And sometimes like this one, I suspect the missile went up, went to the east, tracked on the cruise missile, and one of them may even have destroyed the cruise missile, but they launch in Paris generally. Yeah. And the other one was tracking it as it went west and it just went stupid as we call it. And crashed into Poland. I'm glad that they're, you know, Russia didn't lose its mind and didn't try to do anything deliberately. I'm glad that it wasn't an accident. Because we need to tone down this whole, let's go to World War three stuff. Yeah. Because Ukraine, you know, was attacked by Russia. We all know that. But there's no need to really want to escalate. And then Ukraine is. I mean, when I heard this yesterday, I was like, ah, Putin's invaded Poland. Where does that sound familiar? I mean, because at first, you know, you didn't know what it was. So yeah, you're right. It's a relief,

Young Conservatism Is on the Rise

"If you've ever been to a pro life rally personally, you'll notice a lot of things that don't filter through the coverage as it's presented on the mainstream news. This is especially true with regards to the counter protesters. For example, you'll notice that the photos are always framed to make the number of pro lifers and pro abortionists look similar. In reality, the pro lifers usually number in the hundreds or even thousands, while the counter protesters genuinely don't make more than a token handful. Another detail loss to the media is the average age of the protesters. People advocating for pro life policies tend to skew much younger than their counterparts. You see high school students and large families with many children on the pro life side now. On the pro abortion side, you have mostly middle aged cat owners. Occasionally, you get a few disenfranchised man hating college age adults, but not children. Sometimes leftists are extra evil and dress up their children as pro abortion, protesters, with signs like you should have been aborted. Most people forget what your politics are. Find that using pro choice children is a weird flex. And an oxymoron. You would think that leftists would have a difficult time explaining they are pro abortion to their children. And the natural response of a child I'm sure would be, did you want to abort me? This reminds me of how Kim Kardashian allegedly explored a boarding her first child northwest. You would think leftist parents would define these conversations with their children to be well at the least uncomfortable. But no, to the left, the earlier kids hear about these things, the better. They should be pro abortion once born. The loft would have you believe that theirs is the movement of the future. That their ideas are fresh, that they represent the inevitable march of progress, towards an undiscovered country, where there is no place for conservatives or their ideas. Yet attending a pro life rally reveals the left for what it is. Geriatric, tired, confused, angry, and lumbering towards extinction.

It does make sense. I starting back in nineteen eighty two. You know right there kevin. Why are we so fascinated with the macabre. I think we're fascinated with it because we're all scared of death But it's a it's a way to have a safe distance and focus on and Study death for lack of a better term but be safe about it. It's an it's such an interesting thing as we're recording now in chicago. Right now is the oddities and curiosities expo at the mccormick center downtown I have a good friend. Who's going to that. I actually i mean it sounds really fun. We had plans. Or i'd be there right now.

So i was on a advisor. Council for crystal bridges was called arden fusion so the thought process around that was finding activities in coordinating events for young professionals people from twenty one to forty years old to do outside of work where they were for walmart. J. b. hunt tyson or any of the suppliers or where they on their own business helping them connect to the community and a good friend of mine. Julian brown and i served on that in our organization together and then she was vice chair persona so she asked me if i would join the board there and kind of capitalize on some of the ones we had at crystal bridges and as far as expanding our outreach to a younger audience and as well as getting sony into spaces that we haven't typically gone to a m- around north west arkansas right. Yeah no and. I think that's great and you guys have done a great job. You invited nicole. And i to an event i think it was like the first sonal event Since the pandemic started that they had the walmart center and it was nice. I mean we were socially distanced and spaced out but it was so nice to be in an audience and listen to music exactly. I mean it was great. It was fabulous was nice so that was where we announced our madden season. So we'll continue to have our masterworks programs at the walton arts center but we also have more programming outside of traditional venues of looking forward to this upcoming season for what a conductor paul hossan and rally. Nicholson having a more executive director in store for us. Yeah no it's i think it's great in and then you're you're also on. I think is still on the board of single parent scholarship fund which has changed. Its name yes so we are On the board for the single scholarship fund in northwest arkansas so we combined with the bitten county organization so it's one organization that serves madison carroll washington and bitten counties. Shout out to tyler clark yet. Will you engine use me too. And then i had him on this podcast and we did an episode early on about the single parents cowshed on and he told some amazing stories about some of the families whose lives have been changed because of this program for sure. Yeah so we help students who are within two hundred twenty five percent of the poverty level. I'm go to college and we give them a twenty five hundred dollars scholarship each semester. For those who are ten either a two year four year degree program as well as we support people who are in involved in trade school so everything from welding computer programming bike repairs coming up as well as cosmetology and programs like that as well and the healthcare industry so we have a lot of avenues to help me. People move from a poverty to prosperity when thing that we love about seeing within organization is how our recipients over time become donors and advocates for the program and we have great alumni association on. Were pass recipients help mentor current recipients and help them along their path yet. I mean. I think the program is is highly integrated. I mean tyler. And his team do a great job at. They're they are really all in and what they're trying to do now that they've kind of combined forces i mean that's it's the sky is the limit for those guys. Yeah so definitely gonna have a big impact on north west arkansas for the future. Yeah absolutely absolutely so now. you have. You've actually had a chance to experience number of the different companies. I mean you you said you work. You worked with tyson wing now. Did you also work at walmart. So yeah was with walmart for five years and then i moved over to sam's club okay. Three years ago. And it's part of the same organization so so so talk about that just your experience coming to north west arkansas and working and we talk about the big three. All the time and the big three is tyson j. b. hunt in walmart. You know three fortune. Fifty companies with walmart being the biggest the biggest employer in the united states. I'm one of the largest companies in the world and rightfully so their thumbprint is on north west. Arkansas you know a lot of ways. Yeah we're talk about just your overall experience coming here and being affiliated with those different oriented organizations and what. It's like because i know a lot of people from the outside when i tell them i mentioned bentonville or are mentioned. North west arkansas. They say oh walmart. And i like yeah walmart but it does so much more to it. What was what has your experience been like when you think about these companies and what they represent here in this area so they definitely give back to the area number one not only from an economic standpoint but from a philanthropic standpoint. There's a lot of passion for their customer and investment in their associates or team members that they call it tyson they both are very competitive but also focused on being agile and nimble and adapting for the time. So you've seen tyson experiment with a meatless proteins. And for a while they were involved in some renewable energy sources and then you seem walmart or relapse five to ten years expanded footprint in the digital space sure taking advantage of technology. I think that's what's key. Both companies have a founders mentality. But you also see them adapt for the time so that they are able to last for generations to come And continue to to Press yom elope against the competition. Yeah and there's some be competition. They are mayor especially walmart yet. Gins with a and ns within. That's that's amazon for those of you. That did figure it out. So but i gotta say that the more that i learned about walmart in what its potential capability. What it's capabilities are what its potential is. I wasn't so much sure that amazon would just have. It's way i think walmart is kind of figured things out. And they've moved forward and they keep bringing in new people and great talent. And so what would you say to people that are really thinking about coming here to work specifically at walmart but but also at at sam's or j. b. hunt or tyson. What would your advice be to them before they step foot into the state i in terms of learning more about what this place has like sure. I would definitely encourage them to do their research. Know failure in the top five cities to live with the university. And all of its arts. The way i describe arkansas or north west arkansas. People who don't live here randy is. It's kind of like a suburb without a city. So you have the events cultural events. You have good schools. You have recreational activities for your children. You have a relatively low crime rate and a lot of prosperity jobs and growth. But you don't have the hustle and bustle for the most part that comes with the city. So traffic is definitely improved here. Over the last five years with the expansion of i forty nine. So it's a it's a great place to live. We plan on calling it home for years to come and scrape place to raise a family but if you whatever your interests are you're going to be able to find it within north west arkansas short. Great restaurants Monoculture activities. I'm as i mentioned a couple of times before and then you might surprise yourself and find that. There's things to do here that you'd never knew would be interested in so you think about the bike trails or kayaking or things along those lines that you might find out that this is something you have a passion for and not only do. We have great restaurants. But if you're into libations there's lots of microbreweries and a here northward circle. There's a little bit for everybody and what you can't find here With the direct flights to a lot of major airports everywhere from new york to la to miami dc chicago dallas. You can get to what you wanna do relatively quickly and then when then a five hour drive of here there's so much history especially when you look at the events of the last year and a lot of people going on an a journey reeducate themselves about other parts of american history and wine to know understand more about the civil rights journey. So you've got little rock which is only two hours two and a half hours from here and you have the the little rock nine museum. And you've got up the road. In tulsa you have the greenwood arts district and our the tulsa race massacre happened. So there's a lot of street exact by wall street so there's a lot of history within three and a half hours from here that you would not maybe be able to get to as easily if you lived on the coast. Yeah and he's even just up the road up in missouri. There's even the site for the george washington carver museum and i think it as his childhood home. Yes childhood home. But there's a lot of lot of history and information that so. Yeah i mean you've got joplin when when you think of music in so i mean there you yeah you in. You're scratching the surface. I like to tell people in northwest arkansas. Wow you know getting out of a you know since the pandemic is decreased the number of flights but that will go back in time but the nice thing about being a northwest arkansas's. You're three hours from kansas city. Good barbecue up there. Five hours from saint louis good barbecue hair. Four and a half hours. I just did the strive to memphis great barbecue memphis less than three little rock less than five just a little under fire under five to dallas. So you can get three two. Okay caesar you can get you know you're not you know not too far away. That was the one thing. I had a concern about for those of you that are. Nba fans like man. We're going to miss out on mba. But but no. We've made a couple of trips down. Okay seen to see the thunder play. And it's actually it's a great facility. Great fan base down there and Gotten a chance to see some some good team come into town. So there's you know there's that in you've got the be okay center and tulsa and and then of course all the stuff that you have right here in our own backyard. We've got the amp we've got this brand new. What's the golf course program. That's right there off top golf off his right there next to the app and you got some outstanding people i think i i think i've seen them. Dave matthews band has been there. Twenty one pilots. Jimmy buffett coming hit. Bowl's coming seasonable. Yeah i mean there's just a little bit of everything right here in north west arkansas. So speaking of our music and arts and you've exposed me to a lot. I i mean i grew up going to the museum. I mean i grew up right outside of new york city. So you mean the moma was not. There's nothing for me to go there on the weekend on saturday or the guggenheim. Yeah and that was it but you know one of the things that i have enjoyed here. Immensely has been crystal bridges. And you'd like you said you've had a lot of involvement with them and you brought me to a lot of events we've seen some great people speak bear to bryan stevenson ryan stevenson. We saw the piano coupole. They're not couple. But there may the piano anderson in a row anderson row. They were there and they were fabulous. I actually that happened like right before the pen over those happened. Like right before a democ- south and i've been back one time since the pandemic but he acts it's just nice. I mean crystal. Bridges is is a kind of special place it is what they've done and the one family now walton had done. There is just amazing. I remember my son. Spencer was writing a report about crystal bridges. I think he was like an third or fourth grade now. So what are you talking about. And then we went to it opening weekend. A few years later runs totally blown away with what they had to offer. And and the level of works that were on display there and then they continue to update in an invest in the arts Not only visual arts erm visuals but we seen Jason moran his wife alicia hall moran to an amazing talent. i think they've had cheech marin. Come and speak so not only with the artists but they've had some Amazing guest speakers that have come crystal bridges absolutely ear and what was that Black artists that was The tightest kofar. No the other guy he came there. We actually met him we. We saw him speak but then he had his exhibit there with the afro pilkin Hank willis thomas lewis tom. Yes yeah he's doing some great work in in brooklyn right now and just a piece. That was commissioned by the city. I think for that area there but yeah he's an outstanding artists but we we have so many original works of art for sure there at crystal bridges. And i'm just like ads. It's kind of nice. Yeah rosie the riveter and you kinda go people just when you tell them all this like not north west arkansas. And i'm like yeah rob. No i think i got See jeff koons speak with my friend. Wendy jean bennett. And he's the one that did the gold heart shaped balloon therein the eleven restaurants so these are world renown artists We're lucky and and Bust have here north arkansas absolutely and it's only gonna get better. I think it. It really is and i mean you look at the arts when you look at the the museums and and just there's a little bit of everything to do and then all the activities that are going on now you and i ride a live on the trail and it's just nothing to just jump on a trail somewhere and go right out. Twenty twenty five miles. And you know you're never get on a road now you don't have to worry about getting hit except for some of those intersex. Where if you don't yell clear it. If you don't wait for the light invite could run into a problem but you know it is quite safe in and there's many so many trails to ride both ashphalt trails as well as gravel and off road mountain biking. You can't does. there's just so much your yeah absolutely. So what what is your what are you. What are you bullish about in the on the future of north west arkansas. So i i think you're gonna see Continued shift to being tech hub. An incubator for other businesses. I think that You'll also see an an increase investment in Biking and cycling and then i'm excited about the arts corridor. That's coming to fatal. yeah you know. Hopefully in the next ten or fifteen years where you have a large arena for concerts. That'd be nice. I know going malefic are gonna see john legend in tulsa which is only ninety minutes away in september. But it'd be nice to not have to make that drive right but Yeah i think it's going to be a continued focus on business whether it be tekere or retail and then the hartson than outdoor activities. Yeah so i mean. We didn't even mention the northeast. Arkansas natural the myrlie baseball team here. Yeah can't forget them. And you know i do wanna give a shout out in in the only reason why i'm bringing this up is because it you know i've talked about it before but i wanna give a shout out to the good folks at the children's hospital that's right here. Some renew hostile. That hospital did not exist. When i moved here in two thousand fourteen. But it's here now and My youngest son had a pretty bad bike accident the other day the day before we recorded this episode and I was really concerned. I thought he broke his leg. We ended up over at the emergency room children's hospital and they were just absolutely fabulous. They really were. I mean granted. We're in the midst of a pandemic right now. In healthcare workers are overworked. They arm at a high level. And and you know that personally but but it's just I gotta give a shout out to the children's hospital here in north west arkansas. Prior to this being built the closest children's hospital would have been little wrong and so it's something that we actually have a children's hospital here and then with some of the recent announcement that alice walton has made about the plans to to more opportunities for for learning in the medical field arena. That will you know we're gonna have a much more robust community of medical practitioners in the next five ten to fifteen years in this area and so you know there are good things happening here because that was a that was another concern. We moved here from boston. I mean it's like come on you know tops. The tops cities with great healthcare. And that's you don't think about it till you need it and we're straight up healthy but things happen and it's nothing like a bike to bring it to the emergency room and caused you to say. Oh my gosh my know my child or am i gonna be okay and so yeah i just just a shout out to those guys and for people listening to this aren't from year and i've talked to you in the past and others that are thinking about coming here. We have the infrastructure. And if we don't have it it's in the work that's the easiest i mean. That's the way that i can describe it. It's definitely in the work young. So you know my wife. And i joke all the time about a couple of retailers that we would just lament. We wish were here. No arkansas. But they're not far away and on top of all that we pretty much can get most of what we need and even even seafood stuff like that you come out on the west coast. East coast seafood. There's some good seafood places here where you can order stuff and get it the next day. I would be remiss if i didn't mention my One of my peers. Dan by food for sam's club. He does a really good job. Give them a try. Listen trust me. The sam's club no joke. The sam's club seafood section is to be reckon they've got some great stuff and the sushi People don't realize that sam's club sushi now they didn't do sushi before but those folks cut that sushi in it looked so fresh and it's good. Yeah so definitely recommend most do all. The sam's half that. I think we had that an about two thirds of her clothes. Okay yeah so. I would assume that. All the sams in north west arkansas would have they do. Yeah okay yeah ness the other thing too if you're coming here recognized that like walmart and sam's specifically they test out all the stuff that they're gonna do and roll out and other places. They do a lot of that testing ear. So you get you get first crack at it. You get the first experience. Like i had never heard of neighborhood walmart and before i came here i was like what is that and it was like you. Come here and it's like it's a little walmart right in your neighborhood. Like i have when i was there last night and it's convenient and it got a little bit of everything so you know i should get them to sponsor this no seriously though it's good stuff. There's a lot of good things whereas yeah we'd love to hear a like i said we've Been here seventeen years in its home. No pressure on my kids for grandkids in the future. But hopefully we'll be here for for quite a while and there's definitely a lot to deal like i said there's something for everybody and there's there's not pretending for connect with what you're familiar with and also an opportunity explore new things. Yeah absolutely i love and so we can end on that. But before i let you end i do wanna put you on the spot if i had to put a gun to your head and i said you could only take me to one restaurant. I know it's hard. Because i know you know a number of people that have restaurants. Aaron you go to a lot of different places. I do by Gimme your top three three so top three restaurants so i'm going to pizza so that account as one so giraldi for all the all of you from the northeast who complain about not being able to find good pizza here northward circle. Try giraldi down in downtown. Feb office center street also would stone and then My neighborhood spot as tim's pizza and then for can't go wrong with rights barbecue mitchum barbecue a couple of times on stores a great shout. What join right and his team are doing. Yeah they either got two locations. They have a location. That's right up on the trail in bentonville So yeah no. And they're barbecue sauces on point.

"Stay closer to tyson and and also fade bill and when back then when you look at the diversity numbers on on the internet. It was the difference between one percent and three percent. And you know we had that concern with how. How's michael going to adjust north west arkansas. Come in from columbus georgia and where we think we moved. Here is sophomore year and when we left her when he graduated. I think in two thousand seven he was elected prom.

I have several friends that have their children in their in their and it has been a life changing. I mean this is like the sun subtlest infomerrcial friends karate studio but it has been life changing that kids that were very you know just kind of like inward focused and not really not really outgoing. Just changed by being able to kind of find their inner strength through martial arts and he does a great job of it. I've seen videos of some of his students breaking boards with their hands with their feet going to competitions. And really just as we like to say wrecking shop and shot out to michael felix in into all the great work that he's doing here in northwest arkansas with adults but primarily with children really changing their trajectory and just changing their attitudes about things that were very proud of him though. Absolutely absolutely and you have two other kids and spencer down charlotte charlotte and charlotte's at the u. of a. and spencer. i. I've i've got a chance to know those guys even spencer watch arcades a couple of times and so you know we've had a chance to kind of meld our families together and your beautiful. I've shantelle and my wife. Nicola are very good friend. I really good friends. You know they they hang and they model together. They do all kinds of stuff together. They have found some simpatico in terms of cool stuff to do. Yes most arkansas. A good fit for sure it has been it has been so so continue on in terms of you talked about kind of finding your lane if you will. How did you end up with Becoming joining the board of sonar. So i was on a advisor. Council for crystal bridges was called arden fusion so the thought process around that was finding activities in coordinating events for young professionals people from twenty one to forty years old to do outside of work where they were for walmart. J. b. hunt tyson or any of the suppliers or where they on their own business helping them connect to the community and a good friend of mine. Julian brown and i served on that in our organization together and then she was vice chair persona so she asked me if i would join the board there and kind of capitalize on some of the ones we had at crystal bridges and as far as expanding our outreach to a younger audience and as well as getting sony into spaces that we haven't typically gone to a m- around north west arkansas right. Yeah no and. I think that's great and you guys have done a great job. You invited nicole. And i to an event i think it was like the first sonal event Since the pandemic started that they had the walmart center and it was nice. I mean we were socially distanced and spaced out but it was so nice to be in an audience and listen to music exactly. I mean it was great. It was fabulous was nice so that was where we announced our madden season. So we'll continue to have our masterworks programs at the walton arts center but we also have more programming outside of traditional venues of looking forward to this upcoming season for what a conductor paul hossan and rally. Nicholson having a more executive director in store for us. Yeah no it's i think it's great in and then you're you're also on. I think is still on the board of single parent scholarship fund which has changed. Its name yes so we are On the board for the single scholarship fund in northwest arkansas so we combined with the bitten county organization so it's one organization that serves madison carroll washington and bitten counties. Shout out to tyler clark yet. Will you engine use me too. And then i had him on this podcast and we did an episode early on about the single parents cowshed on and he told some amazing stories about some of the families whose lives have been changed because of this program for sure. Yeah so we help students who are within two hundred twenty five percent of the poverty level. I'm go to college and we give them a twenty five hundred dollars scholarship each semester. For those who are ten either a two year four year degree program as well as we support people who are in involved in trade school so everything from welding computer programming bike repairs coming up as well as cosmetology and programs like that as well and the healthcare industry so we have a lot of avenues to help me. People move from a poverty to prosperity when thing that we love about seeing within organization is how our recipients over time become donors and advocates for the program and we have great alumni association on. Were pass recipients help mentor current recipients and help them along their path yet. I mean. I think the program is is highly integrated. I mean tyler. And his team do a great job at. They're they are really all in and what they're trying to do now that they've kind of combined forces i mean that's it's the sky is the limit for those guys. Yeah so definitely gonna have a big impact on north west arkansas for the future. Yeah absolutely absolutely so now. you have. You've actually had a chance to experience number of the different companies. I mean you you said you work. You worked with tyson wing now. Did you also work at walmart. So yeah was with walmart for five years and then i moved over to sam's club okay. Three years ago. And it's part of the same organization so so so talk about that just your experience coming to north west arkansas and working and we talk about the big three. All the time and the big three is tyson j. b. hunt in walmart. You know three fortune. Fifty companies with walmart being the biggest the biggest employer in the united states. I'm one of the largest companies in the world and rightfully so their thumbprint is on north west. Arkansas you know a lot of ways. Yeah we're talk about just your overall experience coming here and being affiliated with those different oriented organizations and what. It's like because i know a lot of people from the outside when i tell them i mentioned bentonville or are mentioned. North west arkansas. They say oh walmart. And i like yeah walmart but it does so much more to it. What was what has your experience been like when you think about these companies and what they represent here in this area so they definitely give back to the area number one not only from an economic standpoint but from a philanthropic standpoint. There's a lot of passion for their customer and investment in their associates or team members that they call it tyson they both are very competitive but also focused on being agile and nimble and adapting for the time. So you've seen tyson experiment with a meatless proteins. And for a while they were involved in some renewable energy sources and then you seem walmart or relapse five to ten years expanded footprint in the digital space sure taking advantage of technology. I think that's what's key. Both companies have a founders mentality. But you also see them adapt for the time so that they are able to last for generations to come And continue to to Press yom elope against the competition. Yeah and there's some be competition. They are mayor especially walmart yet. Gins with a and ns within. That's that's amazon for those of you. That did figure it out. So.

"northwest d. c." Discussed on I am Northwest Arkansas

"Folks and welcome to another episode of. I am northwest arkansas. I'm your host randy wilbur. And i'm excited to be here with you today. Have i got a great guest for the podcast. This individual is actually a very dear friend of mine. Somebody that i met early on when i moved here to northwest arkansas. We ended up attending the same church. And you know for a lot of folks that may or may not understand this when you go to a place in. They're not a lot of people that look like you when you see people that look like you. You tend to gravitate towards them and connect with them right. And so i'm always explaining this to my friends and especially my wife friends and i'm just like hey you know it's when you go to a place and they're not a lot of black people you tend to stand out and so one of the things that i was always concerned about. When moving to north west arkansas was what was it going to be like as a black man in north west arkansas. Raising my kids in north west arkansas for my wife as a black woman. North west arkansas. Not that that was a bad thing. But it's just. It's just the reality. That african americans have to think about when they moved to a new place especially a place where they're not the dominant or the primary group of people there and so coming from new england specifically boston where there's a huge african american population is a huge west indian. Population is a huge very diverse. Population of all types of people from all walks of life is very interesting and so coming to north west. Arkansas was certainly a game changer. And it was definitely different and Anthony my guess. Anthony sunlen had kind of helped me through this process. As i've been here now almost seven years. I can't believe that and i love. I've loved every minute of my time here in north west. Arkansas have nothing but great things to say about my experience here just as a human being but even as a black person. I've had a great experience here in north west arkansas and so i've told people all the time that this podcast was the podcast. I would've wanted to have listened to a four. I relocated here to north west arkansas just to learn more about the area and what it's like and so without further. Do i wanna welcome my good friend. If any some to the. I am northwest arkansas podcast. And now we'll say before. I let him speak. And i'm holding his mouth before i let him speak anthony's name has been mentioned multiple. I i can't even keep track. I should probably have a counter. For how many times anthony's names as been mentioned by mutual people that have been on the podcast mutual friends of ours and others and he's the real reason is the reason why i've had a lot of really outstanding individuals on this podcast and i mean i could go on and on the list of names. I was trying to make a list. But i lost track but but you know i would say the folks from a sonal where anthony is on the board and and what will. I'll let him talk more about that. But without further do anthony sunlen. Welcome to the podcast. Thanks renae it's great to be here today looking forward to having a conversation in just chopping it up all right now. Well you know. I mean i'm just going to keep a real with you. You know you listen to the podcast. 'cause you're always sending me text messages or i like that episode or if i don't hear from you for a week i know maybe that episode wasn't for you and that's fine because not every episode is meant for everybody right. That's why we say the where. The intersection of business culture entrepreneurship in life and saw everything. All those topics may not float your boat but some of them do needless to say. You've been a huge advocate for me for the podcast and and and and you know a dear friend. We ride bikes together. We we've got to experience a lot here north west arkansas together and i'm very thankful for that that we were able to meet like that. I didn't know you from adam before i moved here. North west arkansas. So that's the cool thing and now you know we're we're good friends and so people ask me well. Have you made friends here. And i'm like yeah. I've got several friends. I talk about you talk about one of my newer friends been clark. And there's of course marks y who could who could never forget mark and he's another individual. That's been a real big cheerleader of mine. And a proponent of this podcast and somebody that has made so many introductions for me but but anthony you have. I'd love for you just to share with our audience a little bit about your superhero origin story. Because you've actually been in northwest arkansas for a while you're kind of like an. Og you're not from here but you've been here for a little bit. No you're exactly right rainy so we my family and i moved to northwest arkansas. In two thousand four so going on seventeen years this november mood appear with tyson foods and my first visit to northwest. Arkansas was in nineteen ninety-five. When i came up here for a microbiology class at tyson was conducting up here and i can tell you in that. Nineteen ninety-five today. The areas changed drastically. Am i think when i first visited here. The holiday inn convention center was brand new. And so we've had the lot of growth in the area a lot more restaurants diversity. A lot more cultural events to do. I mean it's great place to raise a family and we'll talk a little bit more about that but yeah glad to be here. I'm from. I call san antonio texas home. My dad was a social worker in the military so we moved around every three years. So i kinda call myself. A citizen the world because we spent about three years in the philippines. I kinda exposed me to a lot of different cultures and when you move around every three years you learned to make friends wherever you go and kind of lean into the things you have in common rather than your differences. So it's kinda helped shape me to where i am today. I think you've done a good job of that. Because like i said i mean. I'm always amazed at the people that you know. And and you certainly don't let grass onto your feet and you get out and you get involved in. What would you say was the was the thing that kinda put you over the top with regard to north west arkansas. When you first got here that allowed you to acclimate to this area. Fairly quickly so for me. It was just finding things to do outside of work hamson. Fortunately i build relationships at tyson. For the i guess twelve years before we moved up here and knew a lot of people in the area. I'm having come up here to the corporate office but making sure that the family was able to get connected so headline good friends to help my wife find employment. She's in the medical field. And then our oldest son michael was really involved in or and still is involved in martial arts so getting him connected in his activities and was very important to us and when we looked at schools.

"Acquire someone like that So that could be. That could be an interesting move. They have obviously a lot of flexibility. Lot of moves. We made but definitely going under here anything else on the thunder entities teams in north west vision moon. I think this might be another like a team like thunder that her the some. They're young guys like the doored. Are the bazeley zad. They're going to be playing really really.

Nance to the blazers. Okay lowry market into the cavs and the bulls getting a first round. Pick and i believe about their jones junior. Yeah i i think the first thing was at marketing wanted to be traded or he wanted a fresh start somewhere else right. I think where he was going to get more minutes. I think cleveland is a good spot for him. You know you have your young guys with colin sexton. And gary's garland is a coro-. They signed jared allen too big contract so they have pieces there right. Evan mobely obviously so. It's going to be a good fun young team to watch out there in cleveland. I think this is a underrated. Pretty good pickup for the portland trailblazers nano. We'll talk about players. Union a little bit but i think just the versatility the athleticism the links..

Basically like a version of our federal congress in the legislature was house of representatives and a legislative council. Vote okay the legislative council.

"Sometimes you basically have to like drive through connecticut some parts of new york. Oh yeah all-time exc faster Better known as the northwest ordinance. It provided a path toward statehood for territories north west of the ohio river encompassing the area that would become the future states of illinois. Indiana michigan ohio wisconsin and parts of minnesota. I mean that's a lot like if a couple of states give a little bit of land we got one two three four five and a half states at and like not small states like another. It's not delaware. We don't six delaware snow the seventeen eighty seven ordinance sought to revise thomas. Jefferson's seventeen eighty four were by designating the territories as one district which fell under congress's jurisdiction. I love that it's like all we can do reverse each other's ordinances And that set and like and like figure out the post system. That's what we're doing. Seventeen falls energy for. We were very tired. Very in addition to the information about real estate and estate planning the seventeen eighty seven ordinance also outlined general process for acquiring statehood. Okay interesting we love how you become state we really do The first federal congress renewed the northwest ordinance during its first session in august of seventeen eighty nine but after obtaining that amounts of land from france with the louisiana purchase and from spain with the purchase of spanish. Florida policymakers were forced to adapt the northwest ordinance to suit their changing needs. I mainly yeah. You've you're getting so much land. You gotta have a process and this is the only thing that we have that the process process yeah. Although the northwest ordinance remain a primary model congress passed a series of enabling acts that granted greater autonomy to territorial officials while providing a path to eventual state hood. thing. That's the thing there's a path there's a path to statehood it's been established for hundreds and hundreds of year yup yup and there's like lots of details in the ordinance about like the various stages to be coming estate bullshit but of course they are. What the u dot s dot without some bullshit like legit hazing like it's like we are. We are fraternity. That's exactly right. That's exactly right you probably. I don't know that you've read through the notes yet. But you are ex- you hit the nail quite on the head. I always have my finger on the pulse. Lean when i don't read through the notes prior to record. It's the sexism in that is Racism laced throughout the northwest ordinances. Just you know. It's just not be it last. Just obvious classic classic. So we're going to talk a little bit about the details of the ordinance so like lizzie said earlier legislation such as the ordinance of seventeen eighty four in the land. Ordinance of seventeen eighty five had only said that the territory would some day become stained by some day. You had not time. Now you hang on somebody usually easy you stay on the line and an operator will be with you as sui shortly yes. We're so late. Imagine writing these of legislation and being like. Oh i don't wanna have to figure out when so. Let's just put a placeholder at some point. So that's greasy sunday sunday. It said these two former ordinances that territories could become states and described how the federal government would sell the land to private citizens I've iran we couldn't get land. Sounds great let's just sell. It ought to like the rich white dudes. That's for sure because we can't have land. Thomas jefferson nathan dane manasseh cutler and rufus king. Great names great great. I mean a lot of heavy hitter. Names her heavy hitter great stage names monastic outlier. And rufus king. I mean jesus. I love that yummy yummy. They usually receive credit for the ideas behind the northwest ordinance. So thank you. Bless bless bless according to the act of the territory would have to progress through three separate stages of government so it set up ways that like basically help them set up government over time but it was like heavily restricted and then like had to be approved by congress so in the first stage congress was responsible like the federal congress was responsible for selecting the territory's leaders. There would be a governor. A secretary and three judges the governor and judges jointly select laws from already existing states to create their territories legal code so like they were just like high Delaware what how. What did you do about this thing. And then law. They could make it a borrow them. I imagine all of these higher up positions the governors and the judges were not Inhabitants of the territory. So it's literally plucking somebody from virginia and throwing them into ohio or am i incorrect. We're going to go through. I think they all had to be from the territories okay. Spyglass that road pricing me because it does it does sound like they would just like grab whoever and be like. Hey go ohio for six months gas. Get the setup ryback. But i also feel like you know. It's not like a for sure was a democratic process. They were probably like hey. Do you know who's really great in ohio. This guy john. Do you know him museums john. John john john is great. John is great on be governor. Because you know. We really well. With john john which on yeah return. Having john john in there is exactly think would really help you know. and it's like worse case scenario. We can always turn to. John rand it'll be. It'll be fine and john's brother. Jim also great. Oh my god. Jab jab jab jab. Loved jim jim so they had to use other pre existing state laws and then congress reserved the right to accept or reject all selected laws. So it gets them but the nails they also had to go to congress would be like is this okay and we did like you Get one hundred percent in congress could be like you failed. Go go read it love it. The governor would have power over the militia and native american matters. Oh uh-huh uh-huh Hey he could also select law enforcement officials and judges for the lower courts so the governor was really like a mini president resident.

We can't just be responding reactively to these extreme weather events this type of event. Although it's shocking to many people was very predictable this is how climate change is going to impact us and so what needs to happen. Is the infrastructure needs to be upgraded before these things happen. Not unlike what happened in texas with the deep freeze where the infrastructure. There can't handle the cold weather same here and that's expensive and city officials and others don't want to fork over the money to do it until after a crisis happens but we need to change that thinking what kind of infrastructure upgrades cities need to be making.

"Welcome to true mysteries of the pacific northwest stories of people places events often obscured by the mrs of time. I'm your host. Ken crumb did you know that. All of america skyjackings only one remains on solved. You know which one does name db cooper mean anything to you on november twenty four nineteen seventy-one a passenger using the name. Dan cooper hijack northwest orient airlines. Flight three oh five headed from portland oregon to seattle washington after threatening to blow up the plane with a bomb. Cooper demanded four parachutes and two hundred thousand dollars fearing the worst northwest airlines agreed. Once the ground seattle cooper let the other passengers and some of the flight crew off the plane and had the money imperatives brought on board. The plane refuel took off again. And at ten thousand feet. Cooper jumped from the back stairs the boeing seven twenty seven into the pacific northwest night. He was never seen again to this day. It's one of america's greatest unsolved robberies or skyjackings but thanks to a recent book. One of the most promising leads is actually fairly new. One kenneth peter christiansen a former northwest. Airlines employ was never really a former suspect in the dvd cooper case but now thanks to the book into the blast. By robert blevins kenny christianson has come to the forefront of possible suspects. This case has never been closed by the fbi. By the way. And says i would say i'm ninety percent to ninety five percent. Certain to christianson was d b cooper. He worked for the airline. He had a paratrooper training background. He had the opportunity. He had a lot of unexplained spending within a few months after the hijacking. He lent his best friend's sister. Five thousand dollars in cash to buy a house then. He used another sixteen thousand dollars to buy another house for himself. As far as i can tell blood and says ken. Christianson had one life before the hijacking and a completely different one afterwards. Okay when you look at the numbers you definitely start smelling something fishy. While working for northwest airlines. Christianson never earned more than five hundred and twelve dollars a month. That's a month which even in the early one thousand nine hundred seventy s didn't go far yet. Within a few months of the skyjackings he suddenly had a stash of cash to throw around. So why didn't the fbi take a harder work at christianson. As a suspect author blevins chalks the oversight up to three preconceptions. The fbi brought to the case.
