"Well this week. Maybe we'll find out That a few more salmon moved up the river from the gold through the Golden Gate Bridge, but I doubt it. I mean fishing in the Sacramento River in the Sacramento River has not been very good anywhere. So let's find out what the gatekeeper Andy Giuliano has to say about the salmon. Good morning. Good morning, Bob. We're we're trying to send him to you. Yeah, We're encouraging them to go upstream, but We're not very successful. Okay. What's going on? So it was S O it. It was a touch slower this week on the ocean. Sam and I would say I don't have any votes that scored any limits. Alien boats has got a fish a rod couple days it was below official rod Wednesday was kind of a dumper day. But yesterday it was right around the fissure on R. J on the Sundance He had seven for six guys, real nice fish, and we have We have seen mixed schools of fish, and we saw some Because wolves like 12 £14 fish one day And you know, real bright ocean, you know, break like coming in from the deepwater fish full, huh? And then the traditional sponsors. You know the big bombers of the plastic Battle Creek fish that we we loved to see to sew those air still here, but but they're still filtering and it was a good week. The commercial guys wrapped up their week. Their season down here, and the guys did pretty good with a real nice fish. Yeah. Um, you know, it's ah. It's hard to figure all the river fishermen are trying to figure out like if this is all we're going to give, if not been a good season, but there's so many different factors. And one of them's been water temperature for the whole year. Even in this time of year. Ah, those fish don't want to buy and they may go right by. I know the fissure starting to stack up in the American River up above there just trickling in. But all of a sudden there's a fair amount of fish up. There is that to run that just went by. We don't know. So Ah, But then you think of it this way, Andy, uh, the beginning of the season. Think of all the fish that were in the ocean. Everybody's getting limits will think of all the fish that have already come up. The river so we don't have that same pool of fish. So maybe one fish arod indicates there is still a lot of fish up there waiting to come up. I don't know. Where were you? I would you know, we've talked about the guy's fish and late into the season will be ableto Fish till November, November 8th down here. So I could see it certainly being late. You know, this is a decent fishing for this time of year for us, and well, you know, with great weather, and there's light on. You know, all the boats are light, so it's wonderful time to get out. But But you know, until it's all over and the dust settles, you will be able to go back and then look back of the numbers, but But it doesn't know it has been unconventional as faras what we saw some in the summer and that may have been as we've talked about all year about that all the southerly current that we had. In the in the late spring and summer and just pushing the fish uphill. Here and and a lot of those, you know, we couldn't go out after those fish because we're all shut down. Yeah. The department doesn't feel that feel that way with the rock idea. We've told them that we We didn't have two months. Iraq about fishing. We should get some of that back. But No, We're not seeing eye to eye on that one right now. Yeah, well, as I tell college graduates to Goto work for the department official wildlife now be careful, because when you go in there, you will probably be the smartest person in the entire department. But just don't act like them. Sorry, but you know what comes out of that department just is absolutely amazing sometimes And what doesn't come out of it is also mist so anyway. Yeah, it's hard, Teo. You know any anything that's out of the norm. Ah, it takes them out of their comfort zone, and they'd like to stay in their comfort zone. So That's why things crawl along at a slow pace. Sometimes when it's just good, common sense that we should do other things. But speaking of the rockfish and everything, How is that fishing? It's AH, it's as good as it gets. Really, You know, it's been really good all year and then now it's really come in to form with the great weather. Most days we have really good, calm weather. And most of the boats that were fishing potluck now switched over. There were still a few parlor trips on the schedule, but full limits of rock hard every day, and the guys were able to bounce around and look at different spots. And then a link Hard. You have to get a good group of guys on the boat, get limits of Ling Cod and if not the average and caught a ride there. So so, yeah, it's a real good partly as we roll into. Ah, Crab Carlos, which will start November 7, so the rockfish are really on the bite. Okay. Uh And I noticed that the link cod scores were going up and down, which which I think I mean, Ling cod move around a lot this time of year. Ah, I think they're there in their pre spawned mode now, aren't they? Yeah, we would. We would start to approach you know, get into that A lot of the scores would did depend on who's fishing form. How many guys on the boat or fishing form, and then you see if you have a swell You get a decent groundswell that'll send this forced down, too. But the guys are fishing like a frozen sardine or the sand dabs. More rock on the trip and then put those on on the sliding trap rig. And that's pretty automatic for Ah, Yeah, um Ah. What about Can you still go down and catch a halibut? Yeah. What a silly question. I know. I just felt so good when I just asked Anywhere you like. Change your like Chinese Karpel where they're everywhere, But, yeah, So the only thing I think flowing, the halibut fishing down. It's just a lot of people switched over to rock cod and then the guys trying to get their last. Last of the salmon there, but for the boat sufficient to get official Rod, maybe a touch better and mix in a little rock, cod, coastal rock, cod fishing and between the halibut fishing so Guy hasn't kind of have a better just really need to hell of it for a particular reason or what? You know there's no no reason why you shouldn't be able to go out and find out too. I just I say it over and over. I don't think there's any fish that ate better than the same day caught hell of it. Exceptional and just don't overcook what you know, don't overcook it and that and that could be, you know, but but you have very light delicate, much different than their last been halibut, The Pacific album, which is a heavier, but they're both really good flavor can't go wrong with the way You know Also, I want to ask you about stripers because there's more stripers showing up in the lower portion of the delta right now. Are there Let fewer stripers coming in on your bay trips. When they're fishing to be on. I would say the Upper Bay has been pretty good bread, Brooks brothers and sisters because spots up they're not so much in the main bay. There was a little run of fish. In the South Bay Mission Rock in some of the spots down there is actually a decent striper fishery. A lot of guys don't fish it but in the on the west side of the South Bay, so From the Bay Bridge down where the ball park is all the way down stick. Some of those old creeks there is less street, Mission Creek. There's a lot of bass that love that area this time of year. A few seats White T best in that area, too. So I just got to go got out there and put the time in debates really get all the live bait still continues to be exceptional. So And they're still bait in the bay..

"For yourself. The beginning of this week marks the end of summer and I don't think anybody is sorry to see it go by Bob Simms of the outdoors show. We even had a few days where we could breathe clean air and the fishing has picked up mainly because of the lower water temperatures in the Sacramento River. The real story is salmon in the Sacramento River, especially between Sacramento and Rio Vista and even point So for details. Join us right here Saturday morning. On kfbk. Hello. This is total Padilla From Greg Padilla. Bail bonds as you hear and read, Day after day in California with regard to criminal activity that is going on. You have to ask yourself why, From my vantage point there a couple of reasons. First and foremost anyone thinking that eliminating the need for people to bail out of jail by eliminating bail and using a zero bail policy as a tool to slow down the pandemic was a worthless and dangerous move. Having zero bill has, in fact hurt public safety, the victims of crime and I will say does very little Help people that are arrested by not having accountability to go to court. This is about having skin in the game. If people don't have skin in the game, the chances of them going to court are slim. When people bail out of jail, they and their family have skin in the game. So for those who think eliminating the bail industry will be a good idea. Take a look at what is going on throughout your state. Now, for more information, or if you find yourself in need of calling a bail bondsman called Greg Padilla Bail bonds at 446 Bond. That's 446 B o indie, or find us on the Web.

"Of this happening and just you know, you record your dives, I guess isn't with a GoPro. Yeah. Okay. So here's a clip from Well, that was awesome. Little detector was the only way I could get it, too. Not a problem. What did you find? What was that? Oh, that sounded like the camera that I found. Basically, when I was first starting, I had a lady reach out to me on Facebook. After seeing one of my videos, and she saw me return a phone back. Someone dropped it in the river while out kayaking. And she reached out to me, and she asked if I could help her. She lost a camera in the lake. It had some sentimental pictures, and I had no idea. It was over a year ago that she dropped it when she contacted me, but I went out there. We tried to find it and it was under directing five minutes. I was able to find it once we finally got the spot. And it had over 2000 pictures of her and her mother and her mother since passed away, and she didn't have those pictures backed up anywhere else, And it just meant the world to me that I was able to return that it was like the beginning of the addiction of wanting to help people get their lost valuables back. Oh, my gosh. That's an incredible story, and the camera worked. She could see all the photos. The camera didn't work itself. But the S D card where all the photos were backed up on worked perfectly. And I haven't found an SD card yet that hasn't been able to work again. They're extremely durable. So how do you go about finding people's stuff that they've dropped because I can imagine, especially in a river things Khun get carried far away from where they first are dropped or lost. They can be, but it's actually a kind of misconception because a lot of people think that's what happens is they just start getting ripped downstream and some items do like, obviously, if you dropped something that has a large with to it It's going to get grabbed by the current, but smaller things like wedding rings, phone's things like that usually drop to the ground, and they're so happy and because they're right on the ground, the current disco's over him instead of dragging him under. So what I try to do is tell people to pick a couple landmarks and try to line up where you are that way. When you come back, the water has risen or it lowered. You still know roughly around where you are, or take a big, bright colored rock. We're just a big rock and drop it near where you think you drop it that way When I find that rock I know I'm in somewhere the right vicinity and then I have different grid searches that I can do is well that I have basically a steak with a bright line and I'll stake it down and do bigger and bigger circles around it. That way. If I have low visibility, I'm still able tto. Make sure I'm going over new ground and I'm not searching the same spot over and over again. But your success ratio 90% right now. I've been extremely lucky and fortunate. Every time I can't believe that I find it and the people that I'm with can't believe that I find it and that's kind of what I love about. It is like Getting to prove my own doubts wrong When I get to that point where, unlike him, I'm gonna find this and I find it my guests. Thank you for not giving up. So are you deluged with requests? Yeah, There's beginning to be quite a lot. What I try to do is I don't really do first. Come first, sir. Because of how busy I've been getting. It's more of a I try to go in order of sentimental value things that can't be replaced with money like I can't go get someone's skateboard that they actually lost off the side of a rock or whatever over someone's wedding ring, you know, so I try to basically order him as most sentimental value and the ones they're most feasible that I can actually get to If it somewhere out of the way or somewhere in another area where I know maybe another diver likes to search. I'll refer them to them because for me, it's all about them getting the valuable back, not me, necessarily finding it for them. What's the weirdest thing you've had to Find that I was purposely looking for that I just came across either that I just came across the weirdest thing would definitely be a voodoo doll that was taped around Iraq at the bottom of the river. No. Oh, I did come across someone's cremations as well. The bag of ashes that I'm assuming was dropped from nerves when they were spreading it over the bridge. So I made sure to spread that the remainder in the river and then take out the plastic bag. But The craziest thing I think that I ever had to search for was probably the $17,000 ring that belonged to the man's late brother, and he lost it in the Sacramento River, which is somewhere where I tried to avoid at all costs. But because of where he lost it, I felt that I had a pretty good odds of being safe and it took multiple different attempts. But we were finally able to find it nourishes such an amazing feeling. And he was almost in tears. I was in tears and he actually donated the money for this metal detector. That's kind of pay it forward, The said. I want to make sure other people can have this feeling too and be ableto provide you a better means of being able to do that. And it was just such an incredible thing like you didn't have to do that, by any means, because I tell everybody that donations accepted, but they're absolutely not mandatory or expected. I do this just because I love to help people and If I didn't have the skill set and someone else didn't they could help me. I mean, that would mean the world to me. So I'm just happy that I'm able to do that for other people. That is really great. There should be more of you out there in the world. S So Is there anything you need? You talk about the Sacramento River, and I assume you don't want to go in there because it's dangerous. Was there ever a time when you made a dive, and and you were really afraid? The Sacramento River. I was definitely afraid 100% of the child that it's one of the only spot that you can have basically a full tree come out of nowhere, and you begin something without you being able to see it in time to do anything about it. But other than that, I did have a pretty scary situation. When I first started, I was going down and my tank started to slip out of my BCD and it started to bring the regulator back with it. So I had to kind of do a balancing act and float to the surface like mission Impossible. And, uh, yeah, It was pretty pretty nerve racking. But I've gotten hooked a couple times. That's never fun that I always have a knife with me down there. I won't die without a knife. But other than that, yes, just mainly unforeseen obstacles that can come at you in the current and then always the voter above you. It might be fishing and thinking. They hope the biggest fish I've ever caught. It happens to be you, so that doesn't happen. Would you ever consider going out into the ocean? I would, but I wouldn't want a buddy right now. I don't really have a buddy to go diving with. So before I go out into the ocean, there's just so many more variables in the ocean that could go wrong. It's never smart idea to go diving in the ocean. Without money. I would absolutely love to. How long are you going to do this as long as I can. It's weird. I've only been doing it for just over a year now, and I can't imagine doing anything else. Now it's just such a self satisfying being and I'm I'm having fun the entire time. And it's funny because people would be apologizing to me that it's taking so long to find a valuable And I'm like I'm good. I'm sorry that is taking so long because you're having to wait out the sun and wait or with panic. But yeah, I'd love to do this for as long as.

"30 on the AM dial 93.1 on the FM dial, which I listened to all the way over the Sierras the other day. Um Salmon fishing today opens up in the Upper Sacramento River above Red Bluff up to the barge pole and up to the Deschutes Road. Bridge and fishing has been mediocre. They're OK. They're waiting for more salmon to come in. Hopefully, they'll have a good day up there in the Feather River in the lower sections of the feather River there being plagued by the same the same trouble that Most Sacramento River lower Sacramento River fishermen have announced warm water temperatures but up by the after Bay outlet after the after Bay water on the low flow, cold water mix just below the after be olive.

A bright fish rob Reimers of rustic Rob's Guide service joins us now to talk about it. I rob Good morning, Bob. So, uh, we're still waiting for more fish to come in, but it seemed like The I know That's not big crowds out there, but the guys that are out there putting in their time. I guess it would be safe to say they're getting an occasional fish. Yes, exactly. You know, we don't have a lot of fishing there by any means, you know, But you know if you go out there and fish, Castellan, maybe too, you know. Trip and, you know fact that I've been fishing four times this season, and I put fishing about three out of four times. So that's not bad. You and you have you have you had a couple of hookups at another time. Yeah, I know the one time that we that we Ah, didn't get anything we get enough that day, not take down or nothing. So you know, I just kind of letter Let her rest for a while. And I'm not there yesterday, and we got to take down. Want one produced a fish. It was a beaut. Too nice. Big face up on the money. It was a really good night. Wasn't everything It was. Oh, it was. You sent me a picture. It was just a cz bright as could be. Yeah.

You know, like a day before it's up in when we caught it. Just waiting for you, Rob. Waiting on if you know I'm waiting and they're waiting, right? So what you're doing? You're Aah! You're anchoring. And Ah described the water. You're Rick. I mean, I mean, there's this type of waters all up and down that section, a river, but ah, you and I talked recently about how fast that water used to be at the head of the Shanghai Ben Rapids before it watched out few years ago. Yeah, you put out a flatfish or quick Fisher, Brad's or something like that. On that thing was, I mean, it would been your rod over. It was working so fast down there. Um, um, course it wasn't deep a cz. They came out of that riffle. What is it that faster a lot slower than that. Well, they're here. It's a lot slower. Last year, it was pretty free. Fast. It was, you know, a couple feet higher than what it is now because we have so much water, But you know a little fast last year that We got to the point there family hook a fish. We get filled the anchor off until after we couldn't hardly get it up to the boat, You know? Yeah, hooked up so but they're here. Ah, it's a little slower than normal. But what we're thinking is kind of a little bit about. You know, the deep hole. We call it people going nine TV, but you know, down below. They have the runway East and West runway and then it comes up. Into the flat there, and it's only like about four feet deep fish going to, you know, keep movement through there. And then if you become the whole they're going to kind of drop into the hole and I stopped there for a minute. We are I noticed that you also got that fissure on your The Brads plugged the You develop the Dragon glow. What? What's it called again? Yeah, Call Rob Dragon glow. It's one that I came up with. You know, we had You know, it's such a good double glow is such a good Lulu and that dragon fly lower than get a staple for so many years that, you know, I decided I wanted to combine the two and make one really good.

I think everybody is getting a little tired of hearing. Dr. Yeah, Yeah. You know, I'm sure everybody is. You know if there's people that they're saying they're not, And I think they're not being honest, So, yeah, you know, Yeah. So you're are you putting it with your Brad? You know you have that flap in there that you can put a salmon filet or two under whatever. What do you put in the flap? Oh, I don't That's on the cut. Plug, Not on the killer's. Oh, that's right. That's right. That's right. Are you using a sardine rap? Yes, I am putting a cap on the belly, You know, kind of split it and put it around the front hook and And tied on there. Ah, that's working pretty well. You know good sardines are are hard to come by. What are you brining years or doing anything to jazz them up. Yeah. Put you use coasters, all what? I used to live about a box of salt a couple years ago from a bookie. You know, it's the same salt that they used, Mr. You know, salt water for saltwater fish came It smells like the ocean. You know, I cut my filet tonight before and put on that salt on it. Yeah, but it said overnight kind of cutting them up and get some good. Yeah. I kind of got brought up thinking any kind of regular table salt or kosher. Saul is not the thing to use you want to use like rock salt? Or our ice cream salts the same thing as rock salt. Ah, just to keep any odor. Any additives from being a detractor. What do you think about doubt? Yeah, well, that's true. I know. A lot of people do use rock salt, but kosher salt. Supposed to not have any added in it. You know it. It would be okay. But I've heard that you know, you go to any pet store and buy a box for that. That's what they make those color. That's gotta be the best because it smells like the ocean. Yeah, That's a good point. Good point. Talk to me about what's going on at the Lake Orville with the salmon mirror. Yeah. You're still getting fish up there. Not really. Quite a lot of it Used to be. You know, a guy go by himself again. His land. A couple diving off there, You know, between one and two limits and, ah You know, you'll get a couple hold over in there. You know, it's still well worth going, but it's not quite as hard as it was in the springtime. Well, it's hard to get a cz excited about it when you have these big, fresh fish coming in just a few miles away. Yeah, yeah. Yeah. Put the lake on the back burner and you know, we Only get to this time of year. But what I don't think we should mention and the after Bay itself is putting out some decent steelhead buddy of mine deal.

That was my priority to be next to him so as much as much knowledge as I could work my tail off over that time. I firmly believe the people the mentors the open doors for me but I also believe that the work that I put in a reason I prioritized learning and growing reading soaking much. That could from other people that that got me to that opportunity to VPN for years yet. No THAT'S INTERESTING. I interned here cast source going Messier Year of college and the one thing that one of my professors stuff in the whole time was taken as much as you can your first few years. Like ask questions asked for feedback. Any meeting we go in a laid on me. A good idea wrong did yawn. Did I say something to the settling weighed on me? And now you take that and learn from that will make the stakes again. Of course yeah. I'm probably made a ton of data. Have up there. But that's the only way you're GONNA learn grow from that end. So do you. Now being where you're at here you see we have the sales team right behind you instill in them daily. I certainly tried to try. Yoga would say do or do not tribal Yoda. I'm trying yeah it is something trying to instill in the young guys in and I really try and build a mentoring program here with with our culture I get it. I don't think it's new. People say millennials want to be promoted. I WANNA be promoted quickly. I I wanted to make more money but also learned the value of of having a mentor and and being open to feedback in in criticism. In one of those guys it was a senior down executive in Frisco and I started Matt Goodman us with the NBA for awhile now. He's with New York F. C. N. N. So hope good. He listens to this. It gives me a call because he'd be proud hit always. He was granted Colombo tactic. And that's something that we learned sales. You're at a meeting. And you can't overcome an objection. You're not sure you finish it up in The Hague. Flip it like. Hey I'm the sales guy talked me how. How do any feedback and what what? Connive Tom and I love that. Still try and use at Colombo tactic today because I was a young dumb sales guy. I was learning a lot. I'm still on. I think about the mentors. The people I look up to their more advanced in years and so. I want to ask them for feedback. How could I have done better? What learn from the process. I'm going through after this. All listen is podcast on people. Critique me so that I can. I can learn August. We're human fright. We all make mistakes. We don't WANNA make the same won't twice and we want to learn and we want to grow our marketing team director. Marketing just laughed. And we're looking to bring someone new on and sense the fear no marketing department and I went to them in and we sat down last week. And we'll talk through the Vision Time Line World K. And reassure them I said. Hey It's okay to make mistakes. That's how we grow. You grow from failure. I was listening to something this warning. I think about you working out. You're going to the gym. You go to failure. Because that's how you adapt and grow and if you never WANNA push yourself. You're not going to get stronger. And so on our staff doing that and marketing team butts evaluate. Let's take time to look back at what we did. Evaluated BE CRITICAL OF OURSELVES. Allow other people be critical of than to step to learn? What can we learn from that in step three is improve apply improve and we all we all want to do that and here trying to have that that safe environment? Where our young sales guys over here our marketing team. Whoever it is can be comfortable learning that way. That's incredible. I mean that's invaluable to everyone in there like you can't teach that anywhere else. You can't get your story anywhere at a Ford Office said somewhere else. You're just applying doing tasks. You're getting that true mentorship and you're the face of it. You're if you work hard. If you take all this information if you learn for people and you get feedback you can be where I'm at and nets. There's nothing humble saying Allie. It may not be selling your rubbing off. You're trying to impact their lives and I love that. So that that other aspect of yourself in what you're doing is education and networking. So you're being the community. You're begging giving back and like you mentioned with private schools churches in the area as with other business schools. Why is it so important to you? Is it another aspect of? You're just trying to touch as many lives as possible. Yeah it is so important as I said it goes back then people side and and I love seeing people be successful on and again look back and me as as a young boy as a young man or the whole lot of insecurities. I never knew my father and so I needed people to believe in need to invest in me to give me opportunities so that I could start developing myself. Confidence in early on it was baseball coaches Continue Baseball coaches through college but then some business professors and they believed in the guys like Brent stelle accused my boss in Frisco an he's gone on to have a great career in sports. John Davis was just with him at national sports form. A couple of weeks ago in John's with Kentucky Kentucky Derby now still inspires. Maybe more than anybody every time. I get with him he he starts rattling off all my successes Illinois. Reduce ME INSANE. How awesome I am. I said John I don't need you. I'm trying to guy you know like like no. I failed a lot to along along the way but people like that invested in so I can be that to to other people certainly our staff here by love it. It's one of those things I think we understand life is more than just the daily grind the daily grind. It's it's important I enjoy. I enjoy that part of it as well but we can invest in other people. There's so much reward and we can give back. There's so much reward in that that that we try to do that year in and I'll add on it is trying to create that culture. Where again partnership with William Jessop University? A small school just north of here and want to give their students opportunity to work with their marketing department. Hey help us. With our social engagement help us with their email engagement in our segmentation. I would have died for that experience when I was in college. That's that's awesome and so to give those students that exposure to our staff and then I try and meet with them a couple times a year. I started off telling my story. Hopefully maybe inspire them in a couple of them have reached out to me. I want to give time to those college students because somebody gave me that time in certainly here with with with the river cast organization will have a limited amount of time. So you can't be everything to everybody but I certainly try and identify who the leaders who are people that for me and who wants to learn grow and that's GonNa give some of that time too. Yeah now let's say I mean from what what you're saying what you've been through your whole life there's community there's getting back there's work ethic mentor ship and you're living biologics from a even from when you were younger to now it's truly playing out which is great to see so now. Lewis that's endless river cash. Yeah all right so there's two things one coming off championship where we have the season honor. We're looking forward. It's Oh man. That's that's the that's the question everybody's asking it. Let me let me share this great September Seventeenth. Twenty nineteen just have to be my fortieth birthday. That happened to be the day. We won the AAA National Championship. I was recognized as Pacific coast executive of the year. What day to cap in awesome year? I'm GonNa Forget that day right and so it internally so our our staff they'll they'll joe like down from here you can't improve on on that but but no it is exciting. Even even this morning at the gym some giants fans come up to me and like came at were excited about the river. Cats teams secretly. I think there's a lot of excitement about Rt. Maybe a little more than the giants this year. We have a great team but everybody knows even busy stocking the covers it taken that step back and I don't know if they've come out and said is the rebuilding year but everybody expects add in. We've seen the astros cubs. Red Sox had do that for a while the Yankees in for a couple years back and now they're they're competing in so the giants are doing that but they've got a lot of talent coming up in so when we look at a roster. There's some excitement about the play on the field Burundi. Tiny our coaching staff. Hobart we've got are a lot of our coaching staff coming back so should be a lot of continuity for time to go down the spring training in a couple of weeks. See the team meet with the coaches with the giants in a better idea of what we're GonNa have certainly a a lot of anticipation going into the season. Yeah that's incredible when you're going into it with obviously you have your idea of what your personal you have your bubble players who may make the giants who may not players maybe double a triple from a marketing standpoint. How does it work? Not exactly knowing who your Rosso Julia Roster is going to be. It's it's a challenge the modeling side. We always take the approach of. Let's let's talk about community. We've done a lot of that today. Let's talk about our mascot and and really focused their on the fun and the entertainment so that way no matter what players. We have no matter for winning national championships over. Not We're GONNA promote the fund the entertainment I mean in the Minor League Baseball to escape from reality. We talked about If we can be safe clean fun and family friendly affordable people are going to continue to come out the telling story on that is while NFL NBA MLB attendances declined lash remodeling. Baseball's hall was. The only league was the only sports organization to growing attendance until something. It says it's more than MTV is about the fun and the entertainment so from marketing perspective. We love it when we if we get joey barred or Elliott Ramos. This year will will promote those guys a seam. Here I but in the end you know it's always going to be about the join the fun come be part of what we're doing here at the newly named Stuttered Health Park. Yeah well that's it so I know you have taken since you've come to this organization. Major substitute prevent gauge at John did take it to the next level on us off. Actually you guys just continued on another element in Van Engagement. What are you bringing? What are you looking to improve if someone comes to a game not just watching a game? I'm bringing my kids. I WANNA go have him takes a BP run basis or whatever. It is what you bring to the table that I love. You want that love. The river cats going back to it starts at the top in Susan style mentioned her our CEO majority owner for many years. She was the wife of sports executive and she was raising two boys and they love going to to ball games which choose the one taking her sons two games in so cleanliness as a mom. She wanted to make sure the facilities claims. She didn't want her young boys running around in dirty messy place. That's where safety comes into as a mom she wants. Make sure she feels her boys or save when when they're at a at a facility but she also understand the game may be a backdrop. It's about the family time connecting together. It's Abou a mom taking a breather. While her kids can go play on the playground or Mama. Dad Can enjoy cold beverage and they know their kids are having a good time rolling down the grass berm. So it's about it's about those moments in so that's what we would try and do here nets a piece of fan engagement thanks. Sports teams can lose focus on digital so much right now we focus on social which important were coming out with a community for social social campaign where we don't WanNa be..

"Play for you guys is incredible stab at now. You have this platform to where you want to see them. Go to the majors. It's an accomplishment for you. It may be bad because you're losing your star player but you have to let go because at the daily that's the end goal for all guys. What is it like with a player you have on it in a credible prospect? He's shown for you. Guys that you have to let go is a bittersweet like you see the giants the next week is a bittersweet feeling. Lawsuit Guy. But he's in the majors so it's like yeah. Yeah it's it's certainly bitter sweet but again we we know our role in we know the giants are their job is to put the best team on the field as possible and we know that that means that our role. Here's provide a great facility for these players to work out to provide an environment where they are comfortable and and they're able to learn grow as as best. They can in so widely baseball so interesting because were separate organization. We're not owned by the San Francisco. Giants they make all the decisions on the players in we. Just try to provide the best experience possible while while they're here we try to get to know them as young men in find out to your point what they're interested in what their goals are. Hopping WE HELP THEM WITH. Try and work with our coaching staff to understand what they're trying to accomplish. They're trying to do in. Swing can help them as much as possible. In the end in the end the player does want be here in Sacramento. They they WANNA be in in San Francisco and so that that is interesting but along the way you get to know these players than in last year. We want Triple a national championship a first team in history to win three national championships so that was an awesome ride. And we got to know those guys. Vote is bittersweet when when they get caught up in but then you want to celebrate with them. Because that's a lifetime goal on final back. I mean the eight year old might yourself really wanted to play in the Big Leagues? Heck my forty year old self still wants to play in the big leagues so you remember that you want to celebrate with with those guys and been blessed enough to keep in contact with with some of them or if we go over to a giants game connect with someone named before after the game and just see how how things are gone and check in with them because they're certainly that that human side that that drives a motivates all of us yet for us and then the Aspect to it is being in the minors. There is more of a shuffle than the major so especially around trades. Either trained through the gums Assurance crazy from the inside. What is it like intern trade season? It's busy it frantic Hof. There's a lot of anxiety it's stressful. In any again the players know to in and they know they may not be here in their talk with her agents trying to figure out. What's the best situation for them? They're trying to have conversations I do love it about San Francisco. Giants said he'd try and be very transparent with with their players and even last year when they went through a transition at the top of the baseball operations side a new model came in and we had three hundred twenty one transactions more than one hundred hundred more transactions than we had the year before and sometimes it just meant a Called for a spot star or or just to fill a role but then he was being sent back down two days later. That's tough to deal with. You want everyone to go up and stay to someone. You're not sure what's going to happen with trades and free agency. You're not sure how you fit into the teams bigger vision and then you're used to one way and then a new regime comes in. You're you're moving back and forth. That was tough last year. And we have more than eighty five guys come through Sacramento and so our goal. How do we get to know won't make me comfortable? What else remember times where you know guy was opening outset back down and just having conversations with them about hey man like what does this mean how you doing it again. Just trying to be real real back. So that's that's that's a big piece of it. Yeah and impact the mental side of the game because going through trade season going up down being in a whole different city. If you've never been there it's hard for baseball player to stay mentally intact. Few Baseball itself is a mental game. You're not their mental. You're not hitting you're not feeling well. You're making errors like for you guys. Is that something you focus on saying Kabo yet? We think about that. I think the giants do a good job as well. So every year the giants will have all their affiliates need winter meetings so we can talk and communicate get to know each other so that way when a Guy Clinton gets called up from double a party the GM. He'll give me a call and you'll shoot me attacks and be like. Hey Great Guy. Here's a couple of things and so that way when the guy comes up I know a little bit about it and I've got that connection. I know the relationship. He had partying in AA or mark in single is San. Hey San Jose we get a lot of their guys. This the more we can communicate the more comfortable we can make the player feel No you got. You're going to be good here. We can laugh at job with them. That's a huge part of it. Even in the clubhouse we try and keep some continuity with whether it's it's paint on the walls or carpeting they see from Spring Training Single-a AA AAA all the way to San Francisco. So some of those small things in here we try and keep it loose and again it was funny we were. We were close. We're close to one game away from from a Clinton a playoff berth in Twelve Games left in our season last year. Guys start to tighten up and we lost five in a row in doubt creeps in and it was it was agonizing because when you're one game away you've got champagne ready to celebrate. You've got to have the plastic. So guys are walking by that in the clubhouse in it's all under getting tight because they see it dissipating in summer one morning. I among away in Daniel who oversees our baseball operations on a car. Clubhouse guide has a look enough. Like we've got to break this up. We gotTa have fun is so we started talking and kept going back to Major League in remember in that movie. They had a certain goal in the clubhouse and every time they would win a game they would take a piece off of this goal. I won't go into too much Listeners remember that in a major league but we took a similar approach than just had some fun with one of our pitching coach. Steve Kline Call. Him is declining. I'm going to have some funnier expense. We got one game to go. And we're GONNA take a major league approach to this in it. Just be goofy and so sure enough when when the players came into clubhouse in a see what we put up this. This funny picture are pitching coach with one game left than they ever started laughing and having a good time with sure enough and I remember I said. I know the rules of baseball. We're also talk by suggest what we're talking about work lynching tonight had entire front office staff is two guys stick around for the game. Were throwing a party. Meet me in the club in the ninth inning. We're going to celebrate. We're GONNA have beers in trying to go down in celebrate with the team so I broke all the baseball rules. But guess what the guys were loose. They were cracking up. They had fun. We won the game. We clinched a playoff. Berth and it was a whole lot of fun celebrating. No that's also nets. That's part of the unwritten rules baseball. There's mccovey you do whatever it takes to get your TV Lewis. Maybe the baseball Gods will get me this year. Now we had to change something. That's it will. I mean Dell last year it also Getting back to you and your story tenuously you weren't interns and then you got to. Vpn three years. Yeah Yeah Ours. Finishing Grad school at Baylor and finished my degree instead of writing along paper. I chose to do an internship and started doing an internship with the Memphis redbirds and I remember the end of that season gave chase their GM two times chip what you WANNA do today. I WANNA be a GM by time of thirty five. I think I was twenty five at that time so I was the old intern. Most of the kids were twenty one. Twenty two coming out of college. So you'll internal set a specific goal and David Chip. You can do it. I believe in you and so I think it's important stopper. There's important people believe in you. I tell you who you are so often we look at Man. We see our faults in our screw our doubts but they have someone say across the table from you like Dave in him being the GM in looking in the eyes chip you can do it. You're going to be successful. That was powerful in that was motivating so went from there and a new phone when the run team. I need to learn the revenue side so I took a sales job in really fell in love the Frisco rough riders Mandalay baseball and and their approach to relationship sales and having a systematic way to go through it. I enjoyed it. I fell in love with it in a lot of success so I was promoted quickly and have the opportunity to leave the Frisco rough riders. Some of the other folks there had left to start a new ownership group Tacoma rainiers and they were trying to build new ballpark up there and they asked me to go up the VP of ticket sales had a brother in Seattle. Love the idea of of a new challenge. The idea of being a part of building a new ballpark so I jumped at that opportunity in in so yet went from being an intern to VP. In less than three years of the here too I worked my butt off. I think outside you before I. I used to be pretty humble. I WANNA say a lot but I think I think people need to hear that message. I missed wedding friends. Buddies were that college buddies. Were getting married. I Mr Weddings. I couldn't take vacation. Couldn't afford to take vacation. I moved to Texas my fam- moves in Chicago. I was on my own four law that but I didn't want to take time off from work. I knew I knew I was put in a great spot. Had great mentors around me extra time when when John's bolster will come into town in speak on the president. Mandalay baseball that time I asked to go with..

"The city of Sacramento is very interesting to me. I can't really figure out it. Honestly you go here you see a heart for you go over here and you see a new shopping center. That's coming out like they're really trying to improve the overall feel of Sacramento. So I am Initially dreamed to Sacramento. You know it's it's funny. This'LL BE I. Think my seventeenth season in Minor League Baseball and a fifteen that. I've that I've worked for when I look back at some of the early days. Two thousand one. I think was my first internship when I was in college the Sacramento. It started in two thousand. And it was just man's team is awesome in in Sacramento and refused later. I was finished in graduate school at Baylor and looking for opportunities. And I was doing other internship with the Memphis Club. And there's a lot of animosity towards Sacramento towards the river cats. Because of how good they were in that they were doing things. So well and in Memphis was really good at that. Time IN NEW BALLPARK. Same time is Sacramento. But just couldn't keep in Texas in Tennessee and then and then Tacoma Washington and and Sacramento always you know one of the top teams beat a midwest kid always wanted to get out of the snow and Away southen in West so I always thought that in California would be a great place to be and really up in Tacoma. I got to know the owners the savage family. The owners of the river cats a similar league meetings in I started seeing why the team was so successful. You know having a family owned small business in Hollywood to be great and what they did but they wanna make a huge impact on the community sort of seeing some of that secret sauce in that intrigued me in a year later when when I finally said. Okay we're GONNA check out you know seriously what's going on down there. My wife and I flew down for an interview. She's northwest girl. Thought there's no way she. She's leaving Seattle or Portland. We got down here in the sunshine and and the people a feels. I don't know for me and forgive me for those of You. That are are from south Southern California that may be listening. But I had this L. A. Thing in my mind all of California I didn't realize northern California is completely different in just a gem of a place in a hidden secret in Sacramento. It's completely different than San Francisco's as well and so for us. We Love the outdoors. You know. We Love Nice warm weather sunshine. The you know we're recording this seventy three degrees out at the end of February two beautiful day. We'd love hiking we love. You know the the wine culture the culture around here so close to Lake. Tahoe on my drive home in the evenings. I can see the snow covered. Mountains surreally is the best. Everything's that's a long answer but it just gives you an idea of of always knew the good things were going on on the business side in swords out here and then when when my wife and I came to experience firsthand and we we fell in love with the community the people in everything that the Sacramento has to offer. And I think there's there's something to be said about that. An organization like the river. Cats come in you guys are here in Sacramento. You call yourselves. A was a high profile. Small Bits yes in so that people have access to you access to the players. They can feel that they can get to know them before they may take the step to the next level before they really just developed more in their careers while also being successful in being in their backyard. What that community feel for you guys being Sacramento in your eyes. What you what is the value and the impact that you're bringing city as the river and Jonathan Oman? If I could go back and tell my backstory first of all I if I go back I think my background. I think my brings typical. And and I've learned more atypical around. I need to share it now. Hopefully by sharing I can inspire other people. But but when you when you hear you understand why community and giving back is so important for me in in wine. Love Marley baseball so much in cycle backyard. I grew up in a single parent. Family home on welfare. My mom came through a bad in and wanted to pursue her her education in in. So you know in prayer and because of her faith she she said. Hey I'm going to pick up and move part three boys to Burbenay Illinois small small town about an hour south of Chicago away from family She didn't have a job she'd been a stay at home mom but she believed in education so so she she took on school loans in debt so should go to school during the day. And this is Undergrad. This isn't this isn't a higher education and then she was cleaning toilets at night in warehouse. Try again's means so. I think I was five years old at that time when we moved from Ohio to a small town Illinois the youngest pre boys. I never had anything. New was all hand-me-downs stuff in oftentimes shoes. Maybe a size too big but my my brother had grown up on so I got him next in and it was really our church and teachers at school with food drives for our family did clothing drives. They saw what my mom was trying to do. They saw a need. My brothers and I had been so at that point just realized anything any opportunity to escape. That situation was was great. So sports was an outlet for my brothers and I. I ended up playing sports and having success spores and was able to play baseball a small private school holiday Nazarene University in such a blessing in if you fast forward. My Mom completed her degree. She got the school she started working there at olive head. They paid for her masters and her doctorate. Our family has nine degrees for the price of one in Wales brothers working on a second doctorate. It'll probably be ten degrees for that price of one. My Mom's become the first woman vice president in that school's history so it's a great story. What is was finishing school. College trying decide what I wanted to do. I knew I love baseball but I looked in the mirror in realize at five nine one hundred and fifty five pounds. My career was any quickly on a bigger better. Figure out something else to do it so I turned to an internship. The cubs and white sox wanted insurance in January. Because I was playing baseball I could start until May or June under the a single eighteen Kane county cougars outside of Chicago. This said Hey will come up here. We'll put you to work. I started working in Minor League Baseball and I saw the family friendly affordable opportunity it provided people to have that excape That my family was looking for. We grew up. I got to know that the GM they're pretty well. I I would ask him questions as often as I couldn't learn but his job and I saw how he had he was able to impact the community to the platform that the team put him on in. That really intrigued me in so when when I think about Marley baseball on the opportunity we have to impact our communities to to give back always have tickets more portable than than the movie theater. I I love that because it resonates with me and how I wrote and I want a young man young woman that that was my shoes growing up to be able to go to a ball game in how good time I want that single parent mom to be able to take her kids out. You know. Maybe it's only once a year but but that's that's an important opportunity for them to get together and spend that time together and so that that just fuels you know what I do and again back to. The family owns a river cats again. They've gone through trials as well in Susan our CEO. She lost her husband in two thousand nine and he told her. Don't sell the team. You can do this I just. That's the beauty is is. There's there's so. There's so many stories behind the people running businesses in in sports teams in it. I'm trying to more and more. I'm trying to tell the story of of of the savage family in the way I grew up again trying to inspire others to help move people in this community to to share their story and do more. Now I love that. There's there's the one thing that resonates as you're sitting in your chair right or you're out at the ballpark and you can see that night. You may see this young boy walking around the stadium and you know maybe he got in. Maybe a family friend etiquette or he added script the other ten dollars. He could be in your shoes one day and that's at the end of the day. That's the most impacting. If you could go out give this gin. The time of his life for one night even like that's going to impact the rest of his life. Accusa ballpark here's enough to think about whether it's bullied in school whether it's people making fun of way whether it's you know they don't have food for dinner like dread the game. You're watching them over here going to love it and now he can be inspired as I want to do this for the rest of my life. So is that really. What fuels you? It really isn't certainly a piece of. I'm aligning times. I said I wouldn't selfish dead on Gra motives. You know. It's it's fun doing what we do. But but you're pointing the end. It is about the people again when I'm asked about the best and worst part of my job. The best parts of people come here with big visions. Big Goals just like I did that. She those goals in. Maybe it's been promoted here or maybe we help them to go somewhere else. They've got a great opportunity yet. We don't want to hold them back. The worst part is is when people don't G. Those those goals for one reason or another and they leave here maybe disappointed in or maybe we asked him to leave in. That's reality is as well. But that's certainly the worst part but the highlights to your point I love it. I'm thinking through. I've had schools. High School asked me to come speak to some of their at risk kids. I love it I love. Share my story with them. I love to try and inspire them because I see so many of them were hoping there is and again if I can keep that hope going if I can help them come up with a vision for their life. Then that's awesome in the end. I'm going to be excited about that. Our Chapel does a good job every year. He'll work with at risk kids in. We've we've had conversations where he'll bring three or four groups out and I'll talk to him but then we also some the players who may have a similar story. I them the opportunity to share their stories with with these young men and young women as as well. So that's really is a driving force in very fulfilling part of job. Now that's good. I WANNA get into your business accomplishments on in a second but there's one thing that goes into what we've been saying that's the players if you haven't gotten into so you can impact the fans again back else. The true another aspect of it is impacting. The player lives. We were giving them this platform to be seen by thousands of people nationwide and take that next step to get to the Middle East to get the San Francisco giants. Now if there's a blockage to trade he could still get up there. You're impacting these players. Lives in. That's something that goes doesn't go unnoticed. But like you think of it. As a baseball player has everyday great or most of them come from bad bedrooms allowing come from other countries Dominican anywhere else to where Comey in Sacramento..
A Sneak Peek of the Wild & Scenic Film Festival
"What is the wild and scenic film festival? It's it sounds like a bunch of hippies drinking up in Nevada Vada city. You're not wrong The Wild and scenic film festival is a opportunity for filmmakers and activists from around the world to come together to tell the stories that they care most about About protecting the environment. And this is your first podcast so low right you. You had all the equipment you went up you. You didn't know who you can exactly interview. What was it like Well it was exciting I did lose my phone with all the recordings on it for a period of about twelve of hours but luckily thanks to the The kind hearted people in Nevada city. I was able to get my my phone back with all these interviews. So crisis averted so Nevada city is like the heart of the like eighteen fifties goldrush right the forty niners that that's where everything happened is amazing when you go there because it looks looks like this old gold town. That's right it's it's right in the Sierra foothills in it it does look like and feel like in some ways that you're going back in time and and Melinda The Executive Director of the South you've ever citizens league tells us a little bit about Nevada city and history in the ways in which the Yuba river in particular has really shape the town cool so his Sarah talking with Melinda booth. Who's responsible for bringing this huge festival together every year? Uh So this film festival is now in its eighteenth year and it's an environmental an adventure film based festival here in Nevada city and Grass Valley California. So we're we're in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains about halfway between Sacramento and Lake Tahoe and we had some beautiful snow last night. Blanketing our town. But it's sunny and melting and we're ready for the eight thousand people that are going to come to our small foothills town for this. Annual event. So South River Citizens League we affectionately refer to ourselves by our acronym circle was founded back in nineteen ninety-three and a bunch of concerned citizens came together when dams were proposed on the South Yuba River and they decided that's not what they wanted for the river in their community and they banded together and fought those dams over sixteen years. It was a sixteen year long fight but they were ultimately successful in protecting the river by by achieving California State designation for wild and scenic status for thirty nine miles to the south you bought which permanently protects it this community really is all about the Yuba River. It's an economic driver for us. It's a place of renewal. It's a place of recreation. It's habitat refuge. It's definitely one of the most scenic rivers in California cornea and you have these beautiful smooth granite boulders. You have these emerald waters you have deep pools. It's relatively warm in the summer and it's a magical place. There's more folks who enjoy the river naked than clothed but. Tell us a little bit about the film festival. I see that the Tagline is where activism gets inspired tired so back in nineteen ninety nine. One circled did achieve that wild and scenic status for the river they were to crossroads and decided You know they achieved what they set out to to do. And so then the question was okay well organization done. Did we reach our goal or is there more to do and they quickly realized that. Gosh there's so much more to do. Circles mission is to unite the community to protect and restore the river. And there's lots of work to be done year round so we're focusing on that mission throughout the entire watershed so from the headwaters waters up at sugarbush ski resort if people know the area that's near the headwaters all the way down to the confluence with the feather river in Marysville the founders of the film festival were very very forward thinking and realized if they could create something that could create a sustainable funding source to help the organization that would be a real help to achieving in our mission and so wild and scenic film festival was created. It was of course named after the win of wild and scenic status and it started as two nights heights and one venue back in two thousand and three and it's grown here in twenty twenty to take place in two towns. We have venues and grass valley and Nevada city. It's five days as we have ten film venues. We have activists workshops we have celebrations. We have virtual reality lounge. We have an environmental art exhibition. There's really a whole lot. Outgoing on does the film festival travel and are there ways for people that live elsewhere to enjoy the festival and enjoy these films. Yes so we kick it off every year in January January here in the foothills in Nevada city grass valley in January but then we hit the road and we take these films on tour so you might see a wild and scenic event near you we have about two hundred and fifty events annually reaching more than sixty five thousand people with these inspiring stories and you can search for an event in your area and if there's not one you can be a host so what we do which I think is really incredible. Is We're actually partnering with Environmental Organizations. Really any kind of organization who want it to host a festival in their area so that they can raise awareness for issues in their community and raise funds for the work that they're doing so it's a really cool partnership a way to get these films seen inspire more people and really Increase the groundswell for the environmental movement. As a whole I love that Can you give us an example or tells Tulsa story about maybe the most inventive or unusual way that people have brought the wild and scenic film festival to their community. I love it when people do outdoor screenings screenings. It's really great so we have some folks in Florida with their shoes off toes in the sand. Watch these films at night outside so one of the cool things about living in Sacramento obviously is the Sacramento River. And I've always had this dream of going being from reading down to the sea. One of the cool movies that you've got to see them super jealous about is cold the Sacramento at current speed and these guys go in that story story which is a teeny little boat and floated down and you go to catch up with them. Tell us about Tom and Mitch. Thomason mentor great to me. They really exemplify the film festival which his in many cases transforming what we might consider to be ordinary people. That didn't you know. Set their careers to be filmmakers or even necessarily activists who fell in love with place and wanted to tell that story to others. And that's exactly what happened with Mitch and Tom. They would go out occasionally with each other with their wives on the river and in came to be Really compelled by the river and wanting to protect it and so they made this film Which ended up winning the twenty twenty people's Choice Award a really beautiful film and Really Beautiful Film and story and I thought it was special to that. Of course the Sacramento River flows through Sacramento so we've paddled on it and Goes through the very place where a lot of decisions about water in the entire state are made so just a lot of Nice different connections with this one. Sara Fest Out Utah With Mitch Dion and then with Tom Bottles who made the Sacramento at current speed. Which won the People's Choice Award The wild and scenic Film Festival Mitch starts by explaining how the idea for the film was launched? A was just looking for a place to row my boat down a river. I Love Rivers. I really like my little dory boat and I live in truckee aunt kind of stumbled on the Sacramento as a place to do some overnight trips without having to drive halfway across the country to Utah. Colorado or Idaho so Several years ago my wife and I didn't overnight trip on a section of the upper for Sacramento where we through our bikes into the boats camped overnight and they invite the shuttle back up to the car and we had so much fun. And we were so enamored with with what we found down there that I started doing longer trips. and Um Tom and I done lots of adventures together. But we've never took advantage Jeff. Our professional lives. He's a videographer and has made lots of films so I started telling her friends. It's about the project down here on the Sacramento and Tom's ears perked up and he said found sounds very well. Maybe you should make a movie of IT and So just hopped in my boat and Loaded up with camera gear and some food and crackers and smoke cheese and took off below reading and Started in a two week journey down the SACRAMENTO Some of which I done before and below Qaluza all the way down into the Delta was was unknown unknown you. I know that people navigate this piece of river all the time but whether we could actually row it and make it out there we really have. I've no idea all heard that the winds were extreme down there that Might be a really difficult journey. And Good Luck. What is it that you wanted to share with people the Sacramento River? The big thing is this water belongs to all of us and people may not realize that it's public domain. It's the water is supposed has to be managed to use for the use that's most beneficial to the most number Californians and you know we know that's a simple concept and after after that everything gets really complicated because a lot of give and take in tug of war but we need to be wake watch. What's happening attention to what's going on Out there because it belongs to all of

"What American interest in aboard John begins with the news that a three point one K. F. C. K. yeah I always take interest when the politicos get together and say they're gonna fix the homelessness problem first of all my my observations I I think that's a laudable goal I like to fix the homelessness problem Phil but it's a different goal is a different issue I should say then what's up playing out now adjacent to the state's capital. and this is criminal behavior it's entirely different so now that the solution for this I has a as expressed by many in the political world is we've got to do something to get dad get the price of rents down so people these people won't be homeless that is not what is causing them to beat up grounds keepers is simply not the case you've got to deal with the behavior it in and if you look at so many different trend so many different destructive influences perpetuated by human beings in our society it is the the core is the behavior. and that that nothing could illustrate that point more clearly than the topics of yesterday and today. he sees an equal why in the end the American and Sacramento rivers add to unacceptable on healthy levels and grounds keepers of the state's capital part being beat up by people who may who again their part they're they're homeless I'll stipulate to that ed there's probably other things about him they're pretty clear to they probably have a criminal history there probably have abuse issues they're probably right handed for heaven's sakes but that's not the issue that needs to be changed and be ideal of homelessness could be addressed effectively but that's not what's causing this. get your calls check in with the rob in Sacramento rob good afternoon welcome to the conversation thank you holding on Sir. I I do I share thanks good I I heard about you know what you're talking about there's one there's one more chapter I think that should be included I lived in cabin cruiser boat all of the the Sacramento River and lived in the marina and. one thing that they well the Coast Guard told me is like you had have a certificate showing that you dump your tanks from your boat right. and there's people well I'm a great you know. you have you have to dump your illegally dumped a tank and have a stiff get on board you're both saying you dump your tank and there's people that live on a boat in arenas and hit on the hook which is when you're anchored out rivers and yet they have this ticket saying that you dump your tanks. some people do doctor take off their boat. right into the river going down to dump tank yeah and that is a big issue so you know you said that they want to test the water they needed the Coast Guard need to test the check on this ticket for you not be dumped their tanks because a lot of people don't think it's right on the river yes about observation of course many many state recreational facilities rivers lakes. Hibbett overnight does stay on boats on west thirty quipped with the necessary facilities to ensure that people are not contaminating the water love it I'll be as delicate as I can with it and that's a legitimate point I appreciate that but it also that at the end again if that's the case that's again another violation of law that's contributing to the problem I don't sense that that's as big as this this the behavior of the people who are actually living at on an adjacent to the river because it's a new trend new dynamic that seems to have increased the the problem in the water so again I want to look at the behavior of individuals on this what you identify is in fact a behavioral issue not a it's not a function of somebody being homeless project called very much check in with that John in Rocklin John good afternoon welcome to the conversation. okay good afternoon Josh Goodrich argue I will talk to you years and years we used to work at the same place down here at G. street welcome.
