"Bruce, Saint Jeeves and Pamela Hughes. There's been a lot of discussion about education spending in the state of errors Zona teacher, pay per pupil funding, etc. Etc. We just had the governor last week sign a eleven point eight billion dollars state budget, which included new monies, four education. And with that new. But we have people out there saying that even with the new money. We are still in a bit of a whole, we are still a bit of a hole that new money was about one hundred sixty five million. Yeah. And we now know absolutely nothing to sneeze at, and it's nothing that Beth Lewis, who is with save our schools sneezes at, but she wants to put it into perspective as two hundred sixty five million. Sounds like a lot. But do you realize how big of a whole, we are in when it comes to per people spending in Arizona? She talked to Chad Benson about that last night, this week, we are forty six in the nation in per pupil spending even with the new money. And so when I can do the math, if we're four thousand dollars per kid behind. We got a million kids that's four billion dollar year that we're missing. Yeah. I know what the nutty number. I know it's staggering, I know nobody wants to talk about it. But that's the real truth. Okay. Billion dollars won't you talks about four thousand dollars for high that, that is to get to the national average on per people spending because we're forty sixth right now. So let's just put this in the twenties so in order, so in order to get into the twenties. We got to kick in another four grand per student at a cost of four billion that were missing. Pretty staggering pretty staggering. But that does not sound possible. What to get out of it with an eleven point eight billion dollar budget. Okay. When you say impossible, meaning that can't be a real number can't get you can't get there from here. I don't see. I'm just being honest. How do you fundamentally get there from here? How do you come up with an extra four billion dollars with, with an I'm going around with a twelve billion dollars state budget, which includes money for, for education in it? Here's what I didn't realize. So this was new learning for me. I am a huge proponent in public education in the state of Arizona. My daughter belongs to the public education system. My sister tea is a principal within the public education system here in the valley. So this is something that's important to me as a parent as a sister. And I think it's important to everybody listening right now because there's a huge impact on our overall economy. What I did not know is while right here right now. We rank forty sixth in the country when it comes to per pupil spending two thousand nineteen well, that's all because of the cuts came during the recession big recession the housing market crashed Arizona was hit, especially hard, and we slashed the state budget and educate. True. Right true. Yeah. Very true. That'll happen. It we're still leaking out from that whole. But, but you truly know the whole that we were in even prior to all of that. I did not know this that before the recession. In two thousand eight we here in Arizona ranked forty eighth in the country when it came to per people spending, that's when things were going well, actually improved from forty eight to forty six and ten years. And we've had a teacher strike because of it. We've had political upheaval. We've been thinking about all that's gone on. And we've moved up to slots. Do you see how I just listen? I realize I'm the skeptic. I realize I'm the cynic I just don't see how you will ever get to anywhere near the national average. And it's an example, going back at least ten years longer that the state of Arizona, does not prioritise education full stop period. Well, now it's not full stop necessarily period, because we have gone up, too. So I try to be the silver lining here. Okay. The optimist forty six I think we skipped over Mississippi, but that was awesome with incredible amounts of cutting that was done to the education budget. So can we get there from here, then that is a tough haul four billion dollars? But how do you eat an elephant, you keep making progress? Or are we ever going to get the twenty fifth? I don't think so. Okay. So what does thirtieth look like what does thirty fifth look like you know what I mean? So, so keep keep chipping away at it white in the good fight, because we need it. We need it here. In arizona. Again, if you just figure out the big average that we're behind the national average per pupil spending times, the number of students were four billion dollars.

"Bruce, Saint Jeeves and Pamela Hughes dog bites girl. This is a little more serious in that it happened at the Portland international airport where a five year old girl was at least in the words of her. Mom mauled. By a pit bull. Pit bull. That was allegedly an emotional support animal at the airport with its owner. Now, an emotional support animal very different than a service animal, and I I'm looking at the photo of this five year old little girl. And and yeah, I would use the word mold as well. It wasn't as though the dog just scratched her. I mean her lip is ripped open. It's bloodied. She's got a black eye huge streak of blood on her face. I mean, it it's it's graphic. It's disturbing. She was attacked. It should never find. It wasn't trying to make it sound bad. Gets you get. But like it should never have happened. There aren't a ton of details to the story. So I'm going to be up front with you on that. Because I think some of these details would sway which side of the issue. I call on. Here's what we do know, Bruce. The mamas filed at one point one million dollar lawsuit against the airport against the airline and against the dog's owner. The lawsuit claims that the owner of the dog should have known the dog was vicious. Okay. Little girl. Gabriella five years old waiting for a flight with her family when the dog allegedly attacked her. Now, according to the lawsuit the little girl had must had injuries were muscles tendons bones, nerve, soft tissue and her eyes phase eyelids tear ducts lips I mean, all surgeries all kinds of things had zero on here. In the lawsuits. The mom says the airline is a fault for allegedly allowing the woman to bring a dangerous dog into the gaining gateway ding area where the attack happened when the dog wasn't a trained service animal and wasn't properly confined now the airport has rules that if you have an emotional support animal it needs to be in a pet carrier like okay crate, this dog was not most. I mean, I'm making a generalization here because well it kind of fits. Most support emotional support animals that I've seen on planes or small, okay, they can fit under your seat in that pet carrier. Pit bulls. Don't fit underneath your seat. It seems to me like somebody gives work the system have to sit in the bulkhead because the dog usually has to lie down in front of you on the bulk at zero problem with that for a service animal if this dog has been properly trained and certified, and you have some sort of disability in this dog is serving that purpose zero problem. I mean, we have laws regarding that there aren't laws when it comes to emotional support him abuse that system fair enough a full stop. And if this person was abusing that system, that's one thing. But there is there is a certain amount of culpability. And I think most parents probably do a pretty good job of teaching their children. Don't just go up to animals and touch them. You're supposed to ask permission when I walk Bob the dog at soccer practice all the time. I am impressed. I will say I am thoroughly impressed with the young people out there, ma'am, ma'am. Miss miss can I pet your dog is your dog friendly? Can I pet your dog? And I mean, we're talking three four five year olds. They know it's been a okay so hats off to the little people out there. But also hats off to their parents. Yeah. So that is quite common now in this situation. Do we know? Fiber ask permission dog and the dog attack. It's not in the story. And that's what I'm saying. We don't have all the details was as little girl out of control running around the game. Mom and dad faces buried in technology, and she's over there. Now. Now. Again, we don't have all the facts of the story. But at the end of the day, you've got this little girl who's face just makes me wanna hug and kiss her. And she's just so sweet and my heart hurts for her. But who's to blame? And I think it's it's hard to make a clear distinction when we don't have all the facts. But I think that because I am cynical against the emotional support system for animals. Does it serve a purpose? Yes, I'm not negating that. But I think it is abused more than anything else. And so maybe that's what influencing. All right. But we wanted to know what you thought who's to blame. I overwhelmingly blamed the owner of this dog. I would say my larger percentage goes to the owner. But until I get more details. I don't quite know what kind of culpability the family and the little girl might have on all of this. Okay. So what do you think open mic? Here's what you're saying for Mesa who's at fault for the dog biting the girl. We're are for the dog biting the girl will use the society have decided that we can't tell anybody know anything when somebody says I'm going to register my tip -als motionless support animal. Somebody needs to go. No, emotional support animal. You're not taking into the airport because they are known to be dangerous. And is is this a bigger issue? Because it's a pit bull is this because people I don't know this to be factually true are pit bulls. More aggressive are they more prone to this? I have friends that say, no, that's not true. I have others to tell you. It's obviously true. Well, I think I think the reason why we're we're even having the discussion is because it has happened a lot you're going to have more incidents of pit bulls than you are with labrador retrievers, but a dog is going to be a dog at the end of the issue. I think the issue with pit bulls versus other dogs is that if a WaWa bite your arm. Wait, wait, what was the name of that dog Chihuahua save again? What I say wrong. I'm not going say if you keep making fun to hear that owns when I say. Yeah. For Pittsburgh for a Chihuahua. Maybe chihuahua. Chihuahua. To allow a sham while Jay. Wow. From. Anyway, Chihuahua very small dog. Bucci coach is gonna do less damage than pit bulls are powerful. Okay. Okay. So if it's the Pucci it's regardless of how aggressive the dog is it's the damage that can do if they are aggressive as opposed to Yip, it, you guess what your ankles if if if if the Chihuahua Chihuahua. This five year old girl, you wouldn't have that kind of damage to her famous. She would not have been into that level. Hi, guys. Lawrence. I'm driving hands-free. I think emotional support animals should be just like any other service animals have to be trained. Okay. Gilbert. I have a therapy dogs therapy dogs are different than service dogs and emotional support dogs, but a certified therapy dogs has an insurance policy on it. The incidences they are also trained and re registered every several years for their temperamental. I did not know that. I did not know that what I mean that sounds reasonable certain extent. You know, I've seen a lot of I say a lot I've seen it multiple times. When somebody's training one of these animals, and they have little vest on. And it says do not touch. This isn't this isn't here for your enjoyment. This dog is working it's training. And if you're going to need one of these should you have a minimum.

"Arizona's news station. KTAR news on ninety two three FM Bruce, Saint Jeeves and Pamela Hughes. He was going to be a force to be reckoned with if he had chosen to run for Senate. Former attorney General Grant woods announced today just a little while ago that he would not be running for Senate. One of the things that I'm not going to run as a democrat here. I'm not interested in spending the next eighteen months. Running against Democrats. So that then we can go against MC Sally and thirty days later early ballots. Go out that's in reference to being going through a democratic primary which he said in his travels and conversations that there were going to be we think we know of at least two other people at strong candidates in their own right? Mark Kelly and Ruben guy. Yeah. Who would be running for this the democratic opportunity to run against Martha mcsally for Senate. And that he didn't he didn't wanna get into that fight with them, which I you know, I mean, there's a part of me that I mean, I can't tell him to get into the fighting don't want to get into. But I find it disappointing because I think that once again, we have an example of another politician potential politician personality, whatever you wanna say who's not extreme enough and doesn't pass the purity test for either party, and we pressed grant on that. And here's how he reacted to fight is not with these. Guys who were looking to to ride or anyone else who may jump in? I may agree or disagree with them on certain things. But at this stage in my life. Okay. I'm not thirty years old forty years old miam- Bishen is not to be United States Senator. If it was I would have run a long time ago, they would have made more sense than my ambition is to is to serve my country to serve my state and to get people that. Don't respect basic American values like Donald Trump out of the system. That is not that's not what it would be about. We wouldn't be talking about that for the next year and a half. But the system is the system. The primary system is the primary system. It is what you go through. And again count me as one of the ones that's disappointed problem saying that the grand at that. He was unwilling to go through that process to get to the point where he could run for Senate and that's frustrating. And and we've seen this more often than not that people who are not on the fifteen to twenty percent fringes of the political spectrum either either side are left with no candidate that actually represents their values that we are the primary system as the political parties become more and more extreme leave you with two people who you would never want to be in the same room with you know, what we had Chris her stem democratic political analyst in to talk about this. And he challenged you. And I both Bruce going really like. I think he called us naive saying, it's always been this way. Wh what's wrong with you guys? It's always been you know, you've got to move to the fringe in order to win the primary and then you're supposed to pivot back. Right. Come more, centrist, as you go through a general, and he's right, it it has always been that way. But it doesn't seem like it's always been this bad. It seems the beginning to the left or this to the extreme. Right. There you go. I like extremes. No, no. And and the majority of people listening are not in the extremes when we go. Yeah. We we stand by. And we watched this process move forward and in two thousand twenty we're going to have a chance to vote again for Senate between what very well may be too extreme candidates with nobody actually being a centrist no-one actually representing the majority of. In that you'll end up voting against somebody who's opposed to voting for somebody. That's one of the reasons why I think we're going to an baskin's why Pamela censoring restore your feet inhumanity. Yes. Even Arizona Special Olympics team that's receiving a very special honor. It's a valley based coed basketball team, Bruce, and they were selected to represent the United States at the world special Olympic Games. Now, we've got assistant Phoenix police chief Mary Roberts coaches the team and says gosh, there are so many reasons this team is truly special in August the team they represented our stay there is at the US special Olympic Games up in Seattle. They went up they had a great time, but they didn't metal. She said though, that it wasn't long after Seattle that the international Special Olympics committee called them to tell them that her team would represent the entire country in the two thousand nineteen road games. And she says she thinks that has a lot to do with the way they acted off the court. She said their kindness to people there kindness tweets other. I think it had a lot of people cheering in the stands as well. As everywhere else. We were not the best basketball team. And you know, that I think that they selected us based upon our heart and our character. And that is why they're going to represent the United States at the world special Olympic Games Nabu Dhabi in March. They got a ten player squad here. All right for able bodied athletes. We've got six athletes with some disabilities. Gonna cost them some money, right? Ninety thousand dollars for two and a half weeks and Abu Dhabi you want to help out.

"KTAR news. Arizona's news station. KTAR news on ninety two three SM Bruce, Saint Jeeves and Pamela Hughes. It was almost a year ago. Yeah. March of two thousand eighteen is when we heard the story of a woman struck by a self driving car, but a lot of people said was the first time one of these autonomous vehicle. Self driving vehicles had actually killed a human happened right here in Tempe. Then we saw the the the grainy black and white video from inside the vehicle looking out. An Uber fundamentally changed some of its policies here. Because of I think it's important to point out that it was Uber because we still have a lot of Waymo 's driving around the the valley, and it wasn't Waymo further along I think in their self driving car technology, these are competing technology. Yeah. An uber. You know decided to get out of the game. Then eventually, but yes, we had last March a woman who was struck and killed in Tempe by an Uber car in the self-driving mode. The family has now filed a ten million dollar claim against the city of Tempe. The family of Elaine Hertzberg has filed a ten million dollar claim against the city pointing out the city installed a brick pathway in the median, even though people were not supposed to cross there that break since been removed. ABC fifteen reports to claim a seeking five million a piece for hers, her husband and daughter. She was killed last March near mill avenue in curry road. The city of timpee is not comedy. Getting because it's pending litigation. Yeah. I get why they wouldn't comment. Sure. But understand that. But there's a lot of questions about that. Well, there are facts we start with that the autonomous vehicle. Yeah. Did strike her. Yes. There was an operator. Would you? Call the person behind the wheel. Let's go with operator, but they were not driving the vehicle. It was in self driving mode at the time. Yes. The person was crossing illegally illegally. That's not an excuse to run into people, but they were not in a crosswalk marked crosswalk lit area. They were going across road. And when you look at the video pretty dark area, we're going to the point that I think if you were being honest with yourself a lot of us driving a vehicle that time. It might it might have ended the same. Whether it was a self driving vehicle or not had you not noticed this person in the dark crossing in the middle of a ball. Okay. But so there's ten million dollar claim. With the family is saying is. Yeah. Even though she wasn't supposed to be crossing in that area. Right jaywalking. I guess that kind of thing, but the city installed a brick pathway in the median. So they cut the median and put a little briefing in there. So that people could cross so does that does that contribute to the city's responsibility liability? Okay. Let's go with that. Because I think there's there's a lot of blame to go around. And and I'm not trying to be disparaging in blaming individual. Who is no longer with us. Well, she was partly responsible. Uber partly responsible. We learned a lot about the technology. They had on the car. How it was tuned down. The driver wasn't paying attention over bear, some responsibility greed, and all of this the the woman who who crossed in that part of Tempe with it being dark, not in a crosswalk bear, some responsibility in this. And now, you know Tempe does Tempe now bear some responsibility. Because. They had a pathway in the median, which would lead me to believe that. Yeah. Okay. You know, what this is something that I can cross and I can use does that now mean Tempe bear, some of the responsibility. Ten million dollar responsibility. I'm not exactly sure that. Attorneys are going to have to battle out. But the claim seeks five million dollars for the woman's husband and another five million for her daughter. I know. Of course, we can have sympathy. Oh, absolutely. And their loss is incalculable in the in the terms of dollars. I've I've just never gotten to the point when I watched the video. I've never gotten to the point that I think the the number one factor was the autonomous vehicle that was the number one factor. I think it was. Oh, okay. I don't think the fact that it was an autonomous self driving computer driving. Whatever you want to. That isn't the major issue too. It's the major issue for you. A pedestrian in the middle of the street in the pitch black not across. Okay. So does it mean you can run into not? And it's not death race two thousand you. You can't anthem and get points. That's not what I'm saying. I just keep putting myself if I would have been in the car at that point would I have been able to react quick enough and avoid a person walking in front of the car in a place where again as a driver you'd say, I did not expect someone to be walking there. Okay. So let's let's game theory that out a little bit. Let's say. This woman made the same decision. Okay. And instead of it being a self driving car. It was a regular, Bob. Okay. It was a wheel. And struck this woman and killed her. With a family Sobe suing for ten million. Would they have the same argument? Because here's the thing. They could potentially still have the same argument there arguing that by Tempe. Putting in a brick pathway median a median cut, they cut the median. So that you could walk across it without having. And by that she was pushing a bicycle remember. Yeah. By tempe. Putting that in did it signal like this is okay to cross here. And does that regardless of who is behind the wheel, or what kind of vehicle, it was is it the fact that the message the city sent to that woman and others who've probably used it countless numbers are times safely was the message the city sent its okay to cross here. And and what what responsibility did city of Tempe have to either market as a bike crossway crosswalk. Light it in some way. Because it can we giving knowledge it was dark in that area. Right. Yes. You know? I mean, there was wasn't underneath a street lamp it wasn't a well. Lit intersection. Nothing like that. I think because it's Uber. It this is why obviously why it's getting the kind of notoriety because we know how dangerous it is for pedestrians in the in the city of Phoenix were one of the worst cities when a right cars and pedestrians and an injuries and fatalities. We are we are uniquely bad at it for a variety of different reasons. So that happens, sadly often and ninety nine point nine percent of the time. It happens with a human behind the wheel. Sure, you know, when I lived off of what thirty six and McDowell I like to call it a transitional neighborhood. I would drive down McDowell. And it was like running the gauntlet with the amount of people just walking across McDowell. And I'm good. It's no wonder that so many people are hit by cars in Phoenix. But here's the deal if you decide to cross mid street without a crosswalk. That's a bad choice on your part. You have some responsibility in avoiding cars. But if the city sends the message that it's okay because they put a pathway in the median. Who bears the responsibility? I still think it's it's a shared responsibility. But what percentage I dunno again? It's something that the the attorneys and the city is going to have to figure out as the family of the woman who was struck by the self-driving Uber car last March. Yeah, has filed a ten million dollar claim with Tempe? I'm going up on a year for them. Now pay attention to that. Obviously the Super Bowl was less. The numbers say that seventeen million Americans whereas that did not show up at work today. Seventeen million Americans have the sniffles sore throat. I've got an earache boss, Eric, my I food poisoning. That's all the food point. Now, I thought food poisoning. Now, it's Margaret. Is what it is. And maybe a lot of them. Don't remember much past the halftime show. We're gonna talk about the halftime show as the jokes keep flying. But I think there's some solid questions. We need to ask about it. For goodness sakes. We're going to get to the bottom of it. Right after Bob McClay checks in with our top stories..

"It's fifty one right now in Glendale weather brought to you by Howard air whether replace or repair, call Howard air. I'm Sharon middlemen on Arizona's news station. KTAR news. Arizona's news station. KTAR news on ninety two three FM Bruce, Saint Jeeves and Pamela Hughes. So have we officially moved off the idea that Mexico's paying for the wall. I think we've moved on that. Right. That's just not happening. It's not even part of the sticker chant anymore is it was two parts. We're going to build a wall built a part number one Bill Mexico's gonna pay for it part number to shut down the government for thirty three days because Mexico hasn't lived up to the partners to Mexico is is not paying for it. And he's not even the trade. That's not how trade works, by the way. Please don't expose yourself as an idiot by arguing leaving to in. Arizona state lawmaker to come up with an idea since Mexico's not gonna pay for the wall. No matter what why don't. We just have people who watch porn pay for it. What house Bill twenty four forty four from Representative Gail Griffin. She's Republican from Hereford, and it will require electronics manufacturers to install porn blocking software on all phones computers, or tablets and the only way to unblock it pain at one time fee of. At least twenty bucks that money would be used for several purposes the biggest mean border security, if you're if you're unclear we're Hereford is like the rest of us Representative Gail Griffin. It's think of it as a south east of Sierra vista close to the border. Okay. All right down there in southern southern Arizona. Okay. So anyway. Besides this is got to violate the first amendment. I mean, you can't do that. Well, you know, it's not even going to face those legal challenges violating the first amendment because. Yep. Representative griffin. Has yanked. It has killed her controversial plan to tax pornography to fund the wall. I never thought I would put like all of those words together in a sentence ever in my life. But wait for tomorrow. Group of words. And here's why she yanked it. Oh, well, besides the fact that you know, every media outlet in the valley was talking about it. It was unconstitutional, but how about this? What does this say? I'm ready. The language was submitted by constituent, and it's not going anywhere. So there's no story there. So so Representative Gail Griffin from Hereford. She didn't write this Bill and propose it a quote constituent. What emailed her this Bill? I have no idea. But I mean, I. No. But you've seen other written written. Yeah. You're going to be a lawyer to write these. That is ridiculous. Okay. So apparently, we are now just taking what Facebook messages from constituents and proposing them as law a Bill, you know, putting it out there to pay for the wall. Okay. Interestingly enough, then we have another lawmaker. Yeah. This is one. We we've talked about before you even called shenanigans on it at times. This was state Representative Mark Finchem does that of oral valley a Republican? He's got some legislation that that he proposed and pretty much. It's a teacher code of ethics and the teacher code of ethics came into play. Because in the wake of red, Fred and school shutdowns and things along those lines. He says he was being inundated by angry parents swatted who said that the teachers were trying to indoctrinate students, and they're talking about the politics and the class Hillary lovers, and we need to do something about it. It's like the education advocate from the classroom. God my constituents are clamoring for this all these people are coming out of the woodwork. I must introduce this Bill to restrict teachers from doing anything in the classroom. Do you know how many emails he received? Well, when I heard the story originally, I would have guessed zero. I I thought it was wrong. He met let let me rephrase that he may have received several emails, but they came from. Yeah. One person. Yes. The day luge the inundation of calls emails letters from quote, personal encounters that people had with teachers that brought him to bring this Bill forward was one person. Yeah. There was a public records request from the Republic for the end. They called culture they said. Yeah, they said that Finchem actually heard from one parent on the issue over Email. The message came after you know, he introduced the controversial Bill, right? So blaming it on a daily of constituents know again, it was made up a a made up controversy that he put a made up Bill for and then came up with a made up excuse for it. But a shock how refreshing would it be if our state lawmakers actually focused on issues that were impacting education in the state of Arizona like I don't talk about ending mechanisms for properly funding case. It's just too boring and people don't care about they care about taxing porn for the internet because you can understand that and get outright dumping serious. But if you actually talk about how education gets funded in the state of Arizona, if you actually talk about the nuts and bolts part of its born. You know, they'll, but it's. I'm not thinking important, and it's not boring to me because I've got a child in the public education system in the state of Arizona, as I know a lot of people listening right now do tax porn for the border wall. Just got everybody fired up just got him fired up. Now, you might have you might have peaked their ears a little bit there. But it's not going to happen. Again that stupid Bill was yanked. Thankfully ridiculous. Also finding out a little bit about what drives this is. Again. We're back to the fringes and the fringes are what drive things like this. This is not these are not mainstream ideas. This is not where the majority of Arizonans are at they don't believe that there needs to be a teacher. No majority of Arizona, don't believe that majority of Arizona's don't believe there needs to be a wall, and the majority of Arizonans don't want tax porn to pay for a wall. So these are just ridiculous. Fringe ideas that get that get put in there by these lawmakers because the fringes are who they answer to. I've never written a letter state lawmaker or an Email fringes, and I get where you're coming from the squeaky wheel gets the grease, but it doesn't necessarily mean it fixes anything. The the Bill for taxing porn to pay for the border wall. Again. Thought those words would ever be put together in one sentence? But yet here we are it was yanked. It's a bad idea. It was out there. We were talking about it. There's probably some backlash and it got yanked. We're talking about the Arizona lawmaker who was inundated by.

"On ninety two three FM, Bruce, Saint Jeeves and Pamela Hughes local story that's been making national headlines for all the wrong reasons, we're talking about hacienda healthcare, the woman who gave birth to a baby a few days after Christmas after having lived in a vegetative state for some twenty six years, obviously a criminal investigation going on to the sexual assault that took place. There's an internal investigation that is going on within the facility itself. But now we have two state agencies that are ordering hacienda. Health care to pay someone else to oversee operations if hacienda doesn't follow orders. It'll lose its provider status with Arizona. The order from two state agencies says the Phoenix facility must find a qualified administrator at its own expense in one week. That new hire must start with. A week after that translation, you currently don't and have not had a qualified operator for quite some time. So we're going to force you to find one in a week and have them in place within two weeks, and it's an order. It's not a request, and it's not an Agushi ation, but hacienda healthcare hasn't necessarily seen it that way. The board of directors saying they're taking this letter under advisement and considering the best possible option forward the best possible option forward, by the way is to follow the order because it is in order and Hocine healthcare. I just have to wonder if they're playing with fire here a little bit most of their funding comes from the state and they've they've already faced investigations on on Medicaid before. Now, they're sort of saying, well, we might do this. We might not do this. Here's the other question that I have to ask what's up? Why is the state ordering hacienda healthcare to hire somebody to investigate or to manage? Why isn't the state's stepping in and saying we're going to investigate and we're going to manage and we're. Going to take over. Well, the say can't because they don't have a license, and I have to wonder how does somebody get somebody millions of dollars in state funding, and yet at the same time the state doesn't have a licensing mechanism so that they can threaten to actually shut them down. Well, you might be surprised to find out that it was back in nineteen ninety seven signed by governor Jane hull where this is called an intermediate care facility. This is a place where where you've got individuals that may have intellectual disabilities that are receiving care those types of facilities are exempt from state licensing requirements. They don't need to have a state licensing requirement, which means there's no license for the state to pole. And there is no direct regulatory authority that the state has over hoc- into healthcare the power. Our the leverage. I guess you could say they have is the almighty dollar amount of money that the state pays for the care of individuals that they place at hacienda healthcare. And if you no longer place people out there facility that's going to create a tremendous financial burden. Hence, the reason why circling back they need to comply with this order. They don't comply with a third party operator. That money is going to be pulled and will the even exists until five pm today. The other thing I have to wonder is if you bring in a third party manager, you've already got a third party investigator in Rick Romley actually looking into security looking into apparently finances as well in saying that everything will be open to him. Do those two people clash in some way, Romney's got a job to do. And I think most people have faith in the jam that he's going to do because he's somebody who is established a long track record of integrity. But does this third party manner? Get in the way, and again, the almighty dollar here. Hacienda is picking up the tab for both the manager and for Romney's investigation, and even you're always conscious of who's paying you. So are there conflicts there that arises again, it's so shrouded and people want answers, and they're just not getting them. I also think that when we look at the criminal investigation here the longer this plays out. I think there's less likelihood that we find out who did this, especially if it's somebody who just wandered in from outside. Yeah. We don't know because security measures seem to have been lax. We do know though that every male staff at hacienda healthcare had to submit DNA. There was a search warrant that was issued by Phoenix police to get that DNA evidence to see if it was somebody who was actually working at hacienda who attacked this woman. So you have that going on? Now, we find out the state is also requesting that patients. Have S T D testing done in pregnancy tests done because Steve you remember when you heard that nine one one call that was released the nurses that were responding and called nine one one were shocked. They didn't know that she was pregnant, and so are there other patients that are pregnant are there other patients who have been attacked. That's what these tests are looking to get to the heart of I think anytime police investigated a crime, they always look at are there more crimes like this. And somebody pulling off more crimes like this. You know criminal goes out and commits a number of crimes, and they don't get caught. And when they do get caught you have to start retracing their stamps and look at what else they may have done. It would be silly to say, well, this is it, and this is all there is to look at and at this point. I would think that the patients families would almost demand that the there's a thorough testing. And we'd leave no stone unturned because we really want to know fully what's going on in this. Facility. Yeah. In fully understanding what's going on in the facility how much of that will will you. And I also learn I don't know Rick Romley doing an internal investigation like you said being paid by hacienda healthcare in that news conference that he held in. I like I like Mr. Romney I have worked with him in years past. And I think that he's a standup guy, but he's also getting paid by hacienda healthcare. And it appears though he was focusing or is going to be focusing on the security aspect of it. Well, the books be opened up where we know that there have been accusations of fraud in the past and just how deep are we going to go on the internal investigation is yet to be seen and again there and he's answering to aboard he's not answering to us the public. How much of that information is going to come out to us? And then you talk about the Phoenix police in their investigation when they held their news conference last week. They asked for the public's help. You know, if you know anything let us know in in one I hear that you know, I've been doing this job for a long time. It's helped me that like, you know, the may have hit a bit of a roadblock that they they need a little bit of a guidance. They need somebody to say something that leads them in a different direction. So I this is going to take some time. But in the meanwhile, you wanna make sure that the patients who are currently under the care of hacienda that they are taking care of that. They are protected that they are secure and that they're safe. We've heard reports to that. Some of these new rules are really making it more difficult almost chaotic inside the facility because a man for instance, any caregiver who's a man can't go into a patient's room anymore. They have to be accompanied by a woman and same thing with transporting patients. And so all of these people that are working in this facility. Now are the ones who are ultimately stressed out. I. Answers need to be brought to the table. I think people really want to know what happened here, especially because it's our money. Tax payer money is paying for the care of these individuals. Yeah. When you think about ninety two percent of haciendas income comes from patients with Medicaid now, if the state decertifies this facility, the Kanka license because there's no license necessarily to gang. But hacienda would lose that Medicaid in those access patients as well as government funding. That's the dollars. That is why I got to comply. They gotta get that third party in there. There's no two ways about it. They may say that they're considering and they're taking it under advisement. Now, they gotta do it. They want to exist in be here a year later, they gotta do it. Well, I got to restore your faith in humanity. We've had some heavy stories say there's been a lot going on here in the valley. We've been keeping you up to speed on. We're gonna continue to do that. By also, restoring your faith in humanity. That's coming up.

"Mexico border crisis. Former New Mexico governor Susanna Martinez tells Fox News the Democrats are beholden to the far left. She says they should come to the table and agreed to President Trump's plan for a border wall. You're never more than fifteen minutes away. From today's top stories on Arizona's news station. KTAR do. Arizona's news station. KTAR news on ninety two three SM Bruce, Saint Jeeves and Pamela Hughes. Well, a story that we've been covering since the outset the incident the rate, I don't think there's any way to describe it that happened at the Hussien healthcare facility here in the valley when an incapacitated woman gave birth to a child on December twenty ninth yesterday. Phoenix police held a press conference where we learn. Some more information got some new details and some let's call some clarification about some of the other facts of this. I didn't learn a whole lot from that news conference. I was still here at work listening to it when Tommy Thompson of Phoenix PD except to the microphone, but I will admit it did seem a little different in that much more even real to have the police describe what happened back on December twenty nine th listen for yourself on December the twenty ninth twenty eighteen at approximately three forty two pm. Phoenix police officers responded to a call of an infant who had coded at a long term care facility in the area. Fourteen hundred. East south mountain avenue coded is a term and a radio call where someone is in distress. Having trouble breathing. Or unconscious now when the officers arrived, they found that a woman in her twenties was incapacitated. Some of asked what that means. This woman was unable to move. She was unable to communicate. In other words, she was helpless. But she was incapacitated. This woman had delivered a baby the baby was in distress. And that's what the original call came out as now the woman and the baby were transported to a local hospital. And at this time, it's my understanding that both the baby and the mother are recovering a lot in there that jumped out to me to be honest with you in we got a little bit of this in our show yesterday. A prior to that news conference which did change things for me one. There had been reports of she gave birth to a healthy baby. Boy, originally, I that's what we were holding over lining. If anything in this horrific story you and I were holding onto and I know so many people listening was that. Okay. You know, what the baby was born healthy. Where do we go from here? We come to find out when you're listening to Tommy Thompson there they responded because of a call of an infant who coded. Yeah. Right. This is a child who's in distress. That is what brought a Thorndike's to the hacienda healthcare, which then to me begs the question if that baby had in fact been born healthy would we have ever even known about this? When the authorities have ever even known because who would have called to tell them. What would they what would they have called and said we have a baby here. Zone. Nothing's wrong with the baby. No, we have we have a woman who is incapacitated who obviously has been sexually assaulted because she just gave birth to a baby. That's what the call. Or when you find out that this woman is pregnant give you knew we did. Learn some other some details don't and and they're relevant only because you want to get it. Right. The woman is twenty nine years old the woman who gave birth. She has been at this facility for twenty seven years. She's too was a victim of near drowning when she was three years old. So she has been in this facility since the age of three. Okay. Okay. As her mother who lives on the Saint Carlos reservation Indian Santos patching Indian reservation, east of the valley became her legal guardian in two thousand nine when the woman turned twenty as part of the legal guardian. Procedures. You have to get annual medical exams and reports delivered back to the court. The doctors last check the woman April sixteenth of two thousand eighteen eight and a half months before she gave birth. They reported nothing does seem convenient to you. I mean, come on it takes nine months to bake a baby. And they just so happened to check her two weeks potentially into that pregnant. I I don't know. I don't know what that is evidence of conspiracy of. I don't know. As you're talking so much of this just does not pass the smell test for me. It really doesn't. And the fact that that baby was not born healthy that it was a distress call that the baby had coded changes a lot for me. And yesterday at that same news conference. The question was asked are you investigating a potential cover up from hacienda healthcare? Here's what Tommy Thompson. The Phoenix PD had to say right now, we're investigating a sexual assault. That's what we wanna do. Right now. And again wherever this investigation takes us. We're prepared to go forward with it. Okay. So a non answering they're prioritizing, and I can acknowledge this priority will be that we find who the perpetrator of this crime is right? I think that as this the story in this investigation progresses. It's gonna take some time. The fact that they have asked the public for help leads me to believe or they don't they don't have a lot of at this moment. So where this ends. And how this concludes it's gonna be a while before we find out the government shutdown may not be affecting you directly. But it might be affecting you more directly shortly and some questions as to the government workers furloughed or not being paid..

"Arizona's news station. KTAR news on ninety two three FM Bruce, Saint Jeeves and Pamela Hughes. So yesterday, we had a town in Colorado that for over one hundred years had a law on the book that you couldn't throw a snowball somebody else Grinch and there, and you hear about some of these like crazy laws like in mobile Alabama kit spit on the sidewalk on the third Tuesday. Weird. You know what I'm saying? Right. Well, New York City sees severance Colorado says you can't throw still volunteers here hold my beer that they are currently debating there is a Bill introduced, and they will be voting shortly on a Bill that would make it illegal to text or send. Sexy pictures to someone else. Without prior consent. Yeah. We'll dance around this one a little bit for you guys show. We know it's illegal to flash someone right? Like the old trench coat. You know, right. You see the movie? Not only would the ad. I know, but but the yelling would also I assume that's part of it. Okay. Got you. Well, now, there is this Bill that they've introduced this week by one of the councilman there in New York City. There would also make it illegal to send unsolicited. Okay. Graphic pictures to someone either via text over the Email social media. Okay. I think I understand where it's coming from the idea that people are being exposed to these things unwarranted. But here's the problem. What's the problem? But there's a variety of. All right. What do you want to start? The the the wording of it says it would be a misdemeanor offense to and I'm reading the quote to send an unsolicited sexually explicit video image to another person with intent to harass annoy or alarm, the other person punishable way up to a year in jail of thousand dollar fine. So what if my intent is not to harass annoy or alarm, what if my intent is to encourage them to go out with me. How do I prove how can we create back-up like, okay? So you encourage somebody to go. I'm not. Do that. But how do you prove my intent was to harass them? Yeah. Well intent is tough to improve. Oh, my intent was I really thought that they wanted to see pictures of my private parts. Just going to let that hang out there for a little while. But basically, it's okay to do it. If your intent is you want to have a relationship with them. Now, I think what this is getting at is the receiver. All right. Whether it's dude or it's a check that's getting sent these picks. I thank God married, and I don't have to deal not in this world now, but I have girlfriends who are single in this world dating app. Yeah. Now back say. You met people at the bar you actually. Face to face. They were friends of friends. That's how I met my husband use a friend of a friend. You you actually saw somebody. You look them in the eye you talk. Whereas now a lot of this is just not online. I get that. I totally get that. But what I've heard from my girlfriend's is there are times, and it actually happens. Disturbingly a lot. Yeah. That they get these pictures sent to them. I'm solicit on solicit giving knowledge already. I don't wanna see this. So I'm trying to maybe if we need Monica Lindstrom, meet legal analysts. So am I am I protected in New York City f if I send an unsolicited passer of my privates? But I add to the bottom. My intent is to arouse your lust. I have to state my intent my intent is for you to be so attracted that you want to go have dinner. What you see what I'm saying? How it is. But it again it comes back to the receiver. Because if the girl you're sending that to Bruce. Oh my gosh. I can't believe to arouse their loss. Okay. I'm just what is the legal? Disclaimer I need. By saying, and I'm gonna use you as the I'm okay with her as uncomfortable as so you send at once, and you don't necessarily get a response. Your intent hasn't changed your. Is. Yeah, I'm trying to browse. That's the ladies. So you send one you sent to you send three you send four inches like enough already. This is a line of harassment that so we need to have in this law. This New York City, we have to have a specific number of naughty picks, you send before it becomes harassment because is the first picture harassment. It can be I think I think it can't be listen, I'm not looking for these pegs. I don't want these picks. Inflaming people from doing it. I'm trying to point out the absurdity of the law and trying to understand first off trying to glean what intent is but play along with me on this. So they're saying you need to have affirmative consent. We've heard that before. Like, you can't you can't have relations with somebody unless both parties are sober enough. And if can have acknowledged, yes, we we want to do this that in of itself is is art. So. How do you prove affirmative consent? She said she wanted pictures. No, I didn't. Okay. Now what? Because one of the arguments he made, and I thought this was interesting. Let's say you have a bad breakup. And you've got some pictures sitting around in New York City, you go. Hey, look, this guy or this girl. Let's be honest has been sending me these pictures. What do you mean we were in a relationship, you send you one of these pictures? We were flirting. No, I wasn't. Okay. Yeah. You could pull something reaching for that one. I think that how do you prove of permanent consent? So as I'm reading this though. It's dealing a lot with airdrop. So on your iphone, you can airdrop things to one another right? If you've got airdrop turned on. Yes. You don't have to send it things like phone to phone immediately. Are however that technology was and so this is kind of like an anti airdrop long when it comes to these kinds of pictures. I it's incredibly hard to trace these airdrop style. Messages sent in public. So they're just being airdropped to people which okay? That's problematic. But I I have airdrop setup where like only people. In your contact list. You can only get it from friends. I would never get these random stranger could not airdrop you a picture of anything, quite honestly inappropriate. And I I can't get anything from them that. I haven't asked for like unsolicited. Yeah. So maybe I'm kind of coming over to your fence. A little technology is infinitely more complicated than any New York City lawmaker is ever going to do it again if the intent is to stop people from being harassed. Okay. Great. I I'm not against that. The idea though, that you're going to throw people in jail for a year and a thousand dollar fine for sending nudie picks seems a bit a bit too far. I hear what you're saying man and on the surface that makes perfect sense. I would just offer without affirmative consent. Sorry, but I would offer you this putting yourself in the position of being a single woman who. Lives by herself. Sure talking about one of my girlfriends who is constantly receiving these kinds of messages. It is it's intimidating. It's feels harassing. I'm going to be uncomfortable. I'm going to be the pig in the room for just a quick second. Because it works the same way for guys, right? You can block that person. You you technology exists where you never have to get another message from you can unfriendly every one of the social media sites. Yeah there. But after you get the first one, and you never want to see it again. What the hell do you still continue to have some sort of connection with them is that fair? Yeah. And this again is talking about airdrop where people are just air-dropping pictures to strangers where they can't remember. Yeah. I never thought I never ability people to give it's on your phone. You can say I don't accept airdrop things. So the technology exists to protect you from this. I don't think we need a law. Like, just stop. No, yes. Nancy? Now, I'm going to help you that's not necessarily kids today. Get off my lawn. Oh my goodness. Are you heading out on vacation? Are you tired of posting all those pictures on Instagram having to stop all.

"Forty seven right now fifty nine in Scottsdale. Weather brought to you by Howard air whether replace or repair, call Howard air. I'm Bob McClay on Arizona's news station. KTAR news. Arizona's news station. KTAR news on ninety two three FM. Bruce, Saint Jeeves and Pamela Hughes. Monica Lindstrom in for Pamela Hughes in that's real helpful for this next segment because Monica Lindstrom, being our KTAR legal analyst was present at a at the hearings involving a lawsuit a lawsuit that was filed by the Republican party in the state of Arizona against specific county recorder's alleging. And don't let me tell you the law Monica alleging that. Verification of signatures from mailing or dropped off ballots was not being done uniformly in all fifteen counties. Yes. So apparently, the procedure is when you mail in those mail in ballots, or you drop them off you have to put him in an envelope. You seal the envelope, and you sign it. And those signatures all have to be verified. And that means that they have to reach out. They I look at the voter registration to see if the signatures match if they don't then they have to reach out to the voters in some way, shape or form to cure, the ballot or to verify it on the back of your mail in ballot next to the signature it asks you to put your phone number, and it says for verification purposes. I'm paraphrasing. But that's why you put your phone number on the back because if they try to match them up, and they go these don't look anything alike. They would call the the lawsuit alleged that there were different standards to news determined just it's called curing, the ballot curing means. Can we also use the term validating? Yeah. Same thing. Okay. So how do you validate it, and what's the timeframe to validate it within that was the whole argument behind the lawsuit? That was the argument, and they said that if violates due process and equal protection if you don't count certain ballots, and if you just kinda throw others out, or if the counties are inconsistent with how they're carrying or validating. So once they cure validate that that signature is all good. Everything's great. Then they can actually open it and take the ballot out and then count that ballot. So that's that's what all this lawsuit or the entire lawsuit. Was we got to a remedy now? I do want to make this and these are these are. Details but they're important details. You may have heard last week. It was half a million. We're down to a couple hundred thousand ballots are yet to be counted. You've heard that that is not what this lawsuit was about about that huge number. This lawsuit was about a subset of that number at one point. We heard maybe a total of five thousand ballots that were still in the process of we don't know if the if the. Signatures matchup. It's it's literally like one percent of the in or dropped off ballots had a signature issue. That's what this lawsuit was about. Not about the ninety nine percent where they looked at. What you're? Yeah. You're right. It was about the ones where the signatures didn't match needed to cure it. And what was happening is in the fifteen counties. Not all well, every county was doing something a little bit different. Maybe two or three counties were doing the same thing as each other almost by accident. There was no uniform consistency Maricopa panel in the rest of the county should all be following the exact same procedure when it comes to curing the ballots. That's what's fair. That's what's consistent. That's what needs to be done. That's what the argument was about. Well, we walk into court or I should say the parties walked into your there. It was a packed courtroom standing room keep aware sitting in the jury, and there were so many parties in lawyers present, and there was even more on the phone. So the longtime. Just to get through roll call. And then to go through everybody's position. So they walk in and one of the first things that the GOP plaintiff's state is that the parties have reached a settlement. Which was surprising. Okay. We've reached a settlement. Good news. And so they ended up reading it into the record because they literally just reached the settlement right before the hearing. They didn't even have time to put it down in a pleading got it. So the settlement was each county recorder defendant. That's all the county recorder's all fifteen counties must permit voters to cure the early ballots until five pm on November fourteenth. Okay. A week after the election, basically weaken a day. So now, we have a deadline five PM this Wednesday. Everything has to be counted by then everything how and I'm going to ask questions, and I don't know. When we talked to Adrian fondest, America county recorder. He said he was following procedure in doing this there appeared to be a dispute it's not a conspiracy. It's not cheating. It's not voter FRA people use election of voter fraud. Now, as here's what it's substituted for I don't like the outcome of this election. Therefore, it's no there is not even being being alleged by crackpots. Don't get me wrong. But there is no voter fraud going on. Is there a state law that governs? This is this settlement alone. Does this now become policy for everybody and end does it need to be made into law? That's a great question because settlement continued on with this one last line. So the entire settlement was only two lines. Second line is cure. Remember they're supposed to cure early ballots until five pm Wednesday Kerr means the same governmental acts taken prior to the general election to allow voter to confirm their early vote. Here's where the consistency in the real world. Right. Here's what was happening. For example. Maricopa County was calling people or maybe physically going out and finding them and asking them if this was their ballot panel county was maybe just reaching out to people via Email, okay? And not calling them or not really they didn't respond. They didn't count your has gone through. So and I don't know exactly what he was doing. But they were argument was they were all doing a little bit differently. But. The idea is that at least they were trying verify because Adrian Pontes argument was America's McKenna recorder. We tell people you have until seven PM on election day to either vote in person more drop off your ballot. So if somebody drops off their ballot at six fifty nine. How are we supposed to cure it validate the signature in one minute because the Republican party was arguing in some cases that if you have it verified by seven PM on election night. You can't go verifying them afterwards. And from my reading of the law in the secretary of state procedures manual for elections that that's not that doesn't have to be done. It's all ballots have to be received by seven PM of election night. And then the verification process can be said, the lawsuit was filed to make sure that all the counties were consistent and that every ballot was counted. Well, the settlement allows every ballot to be counted. But did nothing for the consistency across counties because they literally said go ahead. And do you still can't you been doing whatever it is? You're doing as long as you are making an attempt. We don't care how you go about doing. The only consistent thing was the deadline. And so there was a lot of us kind of shrugging our shoulders like what good was this? And in fact, the judge even said, you know, what the what happens with the rest of the allegations. Inhere and the GOP plane stood up and said, we don't really care this resolves this election. And so if anybody else hates doesn't like the way this inconsistency plays out, they can file another complaint later, and then another attorney stood up and said, well, judge this is front and center in legislators minds. Now, they're all aware of this. So surely, I kid you not he said, surely the legislators will fix this. He's that's in the court records. It is. We mean the name of that attorney boy does he live on different planets. Yes. Uh-huh. Sure. Did physically restrained. My female allowed. They won't fix it. And stop calling me, Shirley, okay? The two things that are going to happen. Interesting. So votes are containing to be tabulated per Aaron law. We still have a day or two for different county recorder's all fifteen counties to verify signatures. If there's an issue. Yup. I tweeted it out by the way at Bruce St James it is by the way, Bruce St James, it's not a parody account despite my tweets. But I did tweet out the link if you're unclear if you're dropped off or mailed in ballot was received in tabulating, the win you put in just some of your personal info, I sent the link from the Arizona secretary of state office, and I just did it for me, and it was received and tabulated easy, peasy lemon squeezy. So if you are unsure you still have a little bit of time to figure this out because you can actually call right? You can say, hey, how come you didn't count mine yet? And they might they'll probably be able to find it and give them a little bit of time. And you can try to cure it at Bruce Saint James, I sent the link for that. Okay. Saturday Night Live caught a lot of flack last week for a joke a joke. They made about a disabled veteran. Did they make it right? This week. We'll talk about that after Bob McClay checks in with our top stories..

Arizona's news station. KTAR news on ninety two three FM. Bruce, Saint Jeeves and Pamela Hughes now, it's not. Yes, it is. And it shouldn't be oh, it's starting to look like it just had a conversation about leftover Halloween. Candy, my friend, but it is going right into fruitcakes. Well, I had a corner house in my community that went all out. I mean all out for Halloween. It was on mazing. I love how people are decorating for Halloween. These days. I don't but I enjoy those that do and they took it down this weekend. Tobruk was like leaving the community to go grocery shirt. I'm gone for about an hour and a half. Or so I come back. The Christmas stuff is up. Really? They went from Halloween decorations to Christmas decorations. You know, they missed thanksgiving in there. Right. I yeah. I know and then you've got the king of Prussia mall, which is a huge. Yeah. Yeah. And two days after Halloween. You know, what showed up now Santa Claus? Santa claus. Was there? What? Yep. Yep. The big man and red looking to see who made the naughty and the nice last and a lot of people are saying it's too soon is too soon because you've got some radio stations even right here in the valley flip the switch and start playing Christmas music all the time like they play it sooner. And sooner and sooner we're gonna start in July pretty sick. Right. You know, what I think it happens every year? You've got that Christmas creep every Christmas creek. This is great. But the thing I it was a person. But go ahead now, go to Home Depot or you go to. Oh my goodness. Sam's Club of had Christmas stuff up for a while yet Christmas creep, but keeps creeping earlier and earlier and earlier because they know it's about selling stuff. Yeah. And I think, but I think this year. And maybe it's just me. You guys can either cosign on this ticket for yourself or say, no, I'm out of it. But I love Christmas. I love Christmas. And I love Christmas music when it gets to a certain point in time. That's all I listen to. And the reason why is because it makes me feel good. It reminds me of being a kid reminds me of growing up. It reminds me of when life was a little easier. Now. We all are kind of looking for that. So I think a better time and the easier time. Okay. Well, let's polarizing time. And I think like maybe right here right now, given the fact that tomorrow is an election day. We're seeing more and more stores. It's about money. You're right, Bruce. It's all about buying stuff. Right. So, Costco, and Sam's Club and Michaels and tell you absolutely decorations and sell you trees and whatnot. And I'm not there to go buy things right now with with the holiday, and I'm not looking to decorate. There's a halo effect is what you're saying. But for me like, you know, what I I my name is Pamela. And I've already listened to some Christmas. And the thing is because it makes me feel good. And every there's so many things out there right now that stress me out with the political divide with the news with like, I'm looking for something to make it easy and make it happy in it's Christmas music. And I think that that's for a lot of people. I'm not alone, folks. And I I struggle with the only Christmas to begin with. But last week I saw the nutcracker movie. Yeah. Which has Christmas seems to it in cracker. Sure. And I saw on October thirtieth. And there's just a disconnect sitting there before Halloween watching a movie about Christmas that I know is going to be playing around the Christmas season and going now, it's just not Christmas and even on Facebook over the weekend. I saw some of my quote unquote, friends who have decorated their homes, they're inside. And they've put up the Christmas tree already the shot. And who are you? And again, I think. It gets back to there's just this feeling surrounding the holiday where it's easier. It's nicer we're a little bit more civil to one another. Again, it takes you back to childhood. And and I think that that's kind of what's going on. Do you agree? Do you disagree? Six zero two two hundred two seven three three Christmas creep happens every single year. It seems to be exceptionally early this year with Christmas Santa Claus is showing up at the mall with some of my neighbors.

"Arizona's news station. KTAR news on ninety two three SM Bruce, Saint Jeeves and Pamela Hughes. So we had the first last televised debate between the two candidates for Senate here in the state of Arizona, replacing outgoing Senator Jeff flake, congress woman Cureton cinema and congresswoman Martha mcsally whoever wins. We're guaranteed to have the first woman ever to represent Arizona in the Senate right thing is pretty exciting is in and of itself. Historical joining us right now on our KTAR. Newsmaker line is stand Barnes valley, political consultant and stand thank you for joining us the day. After the debate night treasure. It's going to be on your show, both of you. Yeah. So you watched it like the rest of us. Did you are a political consultant, I'm assuming that you've spent countless hours with candidates in rooms, prepping them for debates mock debates, how to respond to this and the other knowing that there is a certain script that is followed in debates. What did you see last night winner? Loser. Anything out of the ordinary. Yeah. I I enjoyed it. First of all as a as voter as a citizen, and yes, I see it through different lens because I've been there with people that are doing that. And as former state Senator at my own minor version of those kinds of things I I get what it feels like to be up there on the stage. When both candidates did was play their part. They played too tight. Both both of them had a debate. They wanted to have what I mean by that is here. Cincinnati bell wanted to be that semi robotic completely in control of her emotions. Calm person on that stage and Martha mcsally wanted to be in the enthusiastic, energetic, self-described fighter that that. She came across ads on that stage. And so I think both of them actually after the debate felt like they had a good night. Yeah. And that's an injury interesting phenomenon. But I I do think that's that's accurate. Now, STAN you said that they both got basically what they wanted. I'm wondering about the end of the debate. When Mick Sally as you said, what's an enthusiastic fighter, and she starts alleging treason against cinema. Is that really the impression that makes Sally wanted to give or did she get a little emotional and out of control? No, I think Mick Sally got exactly what she wanted when that debate ended. And if by holdup is evidence a and b that on FOX cable and on CNN cable and on KTAR today. We're talking about this very topic that that kissing sending about once upon a time flippantly provocatively said, yeah, go ahead. Yourself out and fighting the Taliban, and and the way that can be used in two thousand eighteen when when you're running for the United States Senate is powerful. And this is a good day for Martha mcsally that we're talking about this topic and reminding people that that Kirsten. Has been a provocateur. And what does that mean as a future US Senator? What does she really believe in? Will she behave in that manner? Did she ever say such a thing? And how do you explain that the old saw in politics, you guys both know if you're explaining you're losing? And. Wanted to get away from that topic as soon as possible even today, she wants office up at we're talking to stand Barnes valley, political consultant, and certainly he's worked with a lot of candidates over the years was an elected official himself other than again, looking at it from my my way, I fought Martha mcsally did a good job and per strategy of playing to a Republican base or dare I say, a Trump base, and the fact that Trump is coming to endorse her this weekend. She brought that up in there. She's aligning herself with Trump. She's voted with him. I want to say I saw the ninety seven percent of the time. But cinemas still is trying to play more of the middle. And by the way, the numbers are there. She's voted with Trump sixty one percent of the time. She's hardly. And feel free to argue those Dan, I don't think they're ends of the spectrum. I think they're actually closer to the middle. I don't think they're fringes both of them have represented. I mean, we had this beautiful situation. We're both are female both sitting members of congress. Both from swing districts. They're not from east valley. Andy Biggs territory, and do whatever you want. They they're both from swing districts. Yes competitive, and they both is has congress people as congresswomen they have both voted. All sides of the aisles. And now they're having to bury some of those votes run away from some of those present themselves in it in a different manner. You you touched on it. You were close to it. Both of them both of them think they're path to victory or you say this the mic Sally thinks your path to victory is that Trump coalition and cinema. Thanks, her Pap, the victory is to not upset that Trump coalition. Take all the Democrats and Republicans that don't like Trump and people that she thinks she brings to the table that respond to the independent label and bundled those together and that makes fifty percent plus one, right? And so that's why they both got what they wanted last night because they were talking each to their own constituency, and they both are satisfied with that. So did anybody make a mistake? Did they have a misstep? Did they say something they shouldn't? Have said we you've said they've done a lot that they wanted to do. They were very successful in that. I'm wondering if there were any any what is what is it a gaffe is when somebody accidentally tells the truth? Yeah. I like that. There's no there is no gaff. But I think the thing that's not getting talked about enough that you guys kick around is is is the non verbal that took place. The verbal is what we all think is happening. A nonverbal is what's really? So what did you say? Stan I saw I saw a different Kirstin cinema that that that was with the Arizona Republic described as almost robotic nature stepford like overtly com. Even dare I say affected. I certainly would argue I could make the argument that she was very scripted. Yes. She didn't script. Nelly that she just didn't show any human emotion. I don't think she didn't. She didn't have a normal range of motion in in in that debate. I think she overplayed that above it all scripted super poised in control. I am. So it's interesting. Around because you got yours on all the I think Martin Sally on the side Kim across like. True believer on person. But she also might have come off a little like she didn't have control emotions a little angry little too excited too much emotion. Okay. So can go both ways. I think that's I think that's very fair analysis. Thank you very much. Stan Barnes valley.

"Three FM Bruce, Saint Jeeves and Pamela Hughes. Do you? Remember the twenty first day of September. This is the song for today earth, wind and fire. I saw something. This is the fortieth anniversary of the song. September. There's another song we could play today to not going to play. Now. We're not. No, no. So. Good morning. Bruce. Happy birthday. My name is PJ. My birthday was September nineteenth. No. Your birthday was today. I don't tell happy birthday we can also play happy birthday, Bruce. Okay. So question for you, though that when it comes to games around the house. Do you? Let your kids win specifically, Pamela. You in Chris let Riley win at things like board games. Okay. Our houses little unique back in the day when we were playing like candy land and chutes and ladders wiza- we little girl. Yeah. You know, what you wanted to have fun. You wanted to be engaged and participate, and so yeah, you know, it's sometimes you kinda you know, fudge it a little bed, and and let her win now though in the money would just now it's been the last couple of years. She's a pretty smart cookie. And she's gotten better she's been practicing. Well, but I mean like my husband is totally in the board game. Like weird board game. Yeah. Like like Avalon, and all these other crazy games ticket to ride whatever it may be. She can Pete us straight up soldiers that good now. There's no mercy. No, no, no. You earn it? And she'd probably been earning it for the last couple of there's something to be said for that, especially in I'll grant you age appropriate. And gosh knows I don't know what age appropriate. It'd be like, you know, you're playing basketball. You don't need to be Dunkin on. Yeah. You know, I do video. Maybe think of it. I showed you video the other day of, you know, those like daycare centers for like little kids. And what would you say they were the kids the kids four five years or five year? Yeah. They had like one of these indoor, you know with a with a with a padded floor like the romper room typing, and they had a basketball hoop. Yes, they did. And the guy who was watching the kids daycare worker was dunking on these kids left. They'd go to take a shot. He was. It was hilarious. There was over dribbles two handed dunks. He all these little kids in a five year old who's going to shoot. And he just came over knocks it across the room. Not that's the way you get exactly. Not in my house. You gotta teach those kids you think life is not about winning. You're going to have to earn. It. You should earn every one of them. Yeah. I don't know about every one of the five. Our radio is pretty phenomenal again. But yeah, I think it is age appropriate. Now, you don't let your kids win. They've got to learn to lose. They've got to learn to lose with grace. And I think that a lot of adults still need to learn how to lose with grace because they're sore losers. Maybe they didn't learn how to do it properly when they were a kid. You're not always going to win somebody has to lose. So I'm all for teaching them that. Yeah. You know, what you are not the best at everything. And this is this is a teachable moment for for parents or godparents or uncles when you're you're dealing with kids that there is a reality to it. You will win it some things and you'll win because you were good. You tried hard. And you'll lose it other things even if you did try hard. Yeah. You're not going to be the best that everything. And that's okay. And then you're going to survive, and so am I out of line because I just never let the kids win. Well, I mean again, I think it's age appropriate age appropriate now. Now, I'm at the point where now you earn it kid like, even even. Hey, I'm going to race you to the mailbox. All right. Let's go. I'm going to beat you. Oh, no. You're not, and you gotta hustle hustle. 'cause you're. Hi steffan. She she's getting a little faster. There's going to be a day where she beats me. But I am not looking at that date. We asked you on the open mic line six zero two two hundred two seven three three. Should you? Let your kids beat you at all..

"News station. KTAR news on ninety two three SM Bruce, Saint Jeeves and Pamela Hughes. Actually, it's MRs Hughes and Mr. urban who are holding it down right now. Does that sound weird? That does sound weird. I've always been in Irvine when somebody says Mr. urban to me, I don't care. How old I get it. Just sounds weird. I always rejected. I always say just call me. Steve just call me by my. I don't don't. Yeah. Okay. But I know you have a son way when he was a little bit younger and the kids would come over to the house. What do they call you? I don't even recall number. Okay. Yeah. I I think they never got any direction. So they just say like Zack's, dad. It's it's funny that you say that. Yeah. Yeah. You know, or the same for might be with kids. Do they would they would not know my name I would say like at a football game. Hey, so and so great play. Thanks, Devon's dad, even Bruce. I've met his mom several times. And I don't call her Annelies. I call her missus BRUCE'S, mom am. I this is versus mom. How are you? This is BRUCE'S mom, and it's become our thing. I just I there's a certain level that I'm uncomfortable with calling people by their first names. And and when I grow up I was taught to call people Mr. and MRs their last name. And so there are people when I go back to Pittsburgh, and, you know, my dad's buddies come over, it's, you know, Mr. Crawford. Hi, Mr. Crawford. How are you? I don't call them. Ed, MRs Mr. Crawford. Sure. And you can always tell the kids that have been drilled though, there's always one or two kids who who go they walk up, Mr. Irvine, you know, and they're they're very very formal about it. Because mama said you will respect the adults in the room. Well, the adults in the room, though, the level of respect that they want appears to be changing, Steve, and you have more and more adults that are saying that's cool. Just call me by my first name, and it's happening in the classroom. Maybe not the high school level or the junior high middle school elementary school level but in college classrooms, so we gotta take you to some Ottawa schools up there in and Canada, and you've got a professor at the university of Ottawa on. And it is also a professor within the education department who was saying, you know, what you've got that teacher student relationship that is changing and it's changing in a way to help ease the tension in the classroom. That's kind of an inch. Way of putting it, but more and more educators are kind of giving kids the option. Do you call him? Dr do you call Mr. or do you call them by their first name, and they're just kind of leading up to the students comfort level. Yeah. I don't know how I feel about that. I guess it's it's really up to the individual teacher one teacher chimed in saying, it doesn't matter what the teacher is called respect is really shown in their behavior and their character in how they conduct themselves in the classroom, and the respect that they have for the teacher, and you have to instill that regardless of whether you give them a title or give them a prefix or not, and I tend to agree with that a little bit. You know, the prefixing in calling somebody Mr. or MRs it's just sort of the tool it sets, the tone the moment you walk in the room. But ultimately, the teacher really still has to be the one that guides everything absolutely in parents are the ones that have to guide their kids as well. But there is a difference is most definitely a difference. And I take a look at my house. And while I'm very close with my daughter Riley. I'm not a friend. I'm her parents. And when my friends come over to the house, my friends are not her friends they are authority figures. And so while I don't require her to call my best friend Colleen MRs Pamela Davis. She does call her miss Colleen, and she doesn't call him, Mr. Pam Adidas. She calls him mister, Mike. There is it's so casual, but it is still this level of respect, but everybody's raised differently. And while I wasn't raised in the south with all of this, sir. And ma'am that southerners are typically race with it is a word that comes out of my mouth when there is somebody of authority or respect. And we had Colonel Frank mills said in here at one point in time this morning, and I referred to him as, sir. It's just it's something that I think once you get to a. Certain level is warranted. And I get called out all the time for it. Stephen facts during the primaries last week, we had secretary of state Michelle Reagan on and I was asking her a question. I call her, ma'am. It didn't go over. So. Well, it's of funny. I'll play it for you right now Utah. Tell us a little bit ma'am about the edges male. I am not at all. Audits respect, and I get I get it all the time. When I call somebody start a man like, I'm not all don't call me. Don't call me, ma'am. I don't mean it in a mean way. But people do take it that way, I used I've used the word survery as a rule in a couple of situations. Once when I was coaching my kid's soccer team. And I'm yelling at the wraps, sir. That was a terrible call and the other the other one is anytime I'm pulled over. I'm pulled over, sir. Absolutely, sir. I don't believe I was going that fast, sir. But what are you? What do you do in your home? Do you? Do you require your children to use full names, you allow them to use only first names or do you do kind of like a hybrid like we do in our family with like, you know, miss Colleen we asked you on the open mic line six zero two two hundred two seven three three. Here's what you're saying. Across the valley. This is bell from Goodyear. And I think it's disrespectful for a young person to call someone by their first name, if they're not don't have permission when you talk to a teacher, you say miss, and when they come to somebody eighty two years old when they're at the doctor's office instead of just calling them by their first name, you should at least say miss and their first name is Aaron a Phoenix with my son. You call me, sir. She be old enough to drink. Erin. Even respond back to him as sir. As a former respect his mother calls her, and then his teachers, I think it's just funny that you you have all these different takes on where it used to be pretty be pretty straightforward. It was you know, Mr. urban and MRs Hughes, it was pretty straightforward. There was no bending of that rolls. If I called Mr. Crawford Ed outta gotten slapped upside the head. I mean, what are you doing that is Mr. Crawford to you? But we're getting that hybrid. And and and I use the hybrid of MRs or Mr. first name and some people don't like that. I just got a Facebook message here from a listener who says I really dislike the Mr. insert first name if you use Mr. and MRs it's the last name. To each their own. But it just shows you how language and expectations of all. I am never going to call my mom anything. But mom. I never use her first name feel so weird. The only time I ever do that. Steve my dad's name is Frank y'all know because I've said it, but that has come from the many years going dad that he dab dab, right? And then he turns around, and he looks at you like, okay. If that's what it takes for me to get your attention. That is what I'm going to use. It's effective. All right. Hey, you know, what it has been a long week? We appreciate you sticking with us here. I do it. Every time the end of the show and at the end of the week. I think I've got a really good one for you. It is restoring your faith in humanity. And it's coming up next here on KTAR news..

"News station KTAR news on ninety two. Three SM Bruce Saint Jeeves and Pamela Hughes So, this weekend. I was having a conversation with a friend of mine has. A construction company general contractor he was telling me kind. Of the good and the bad you know what things are going pretty well up there it's really hard to run a, company. These days because things are going really well prices go through hard to find employees etc and that. Kind of lens into a bigger discussion that the economy, seems to, be doing, pretty well and, some of that is driven by our consumer ISM the stores the malls the online shopping people. Are buying stuff and you know what are spending accounts. For about two-thirds of our economy so we, gotta spend in, order to keep. Things booming we keep hearing the. Economy is doing well. Wages are up unemployment is down good times are all positive, things they, are positive things and when you start to see some some stories like, Macy's for instance Macy's was closing a bunch of stores in the last couple, of years but they have these like epic Comeback with. Us shares up sixty percent this year the the second. Best performing, retailer in, the s. and, p. five hundred right now they're only trailing Amazon right wow that looks pretty good when you. Hear about WalMart well they're doing a lot of things. Over there at WalMart they're becoming a formidable, player in the, like the mobile. Online rivaling data Vam Assan trying. To compete with them. Right Home Depot and Lowes they're also seeing a lot of, sales because, people are doing things on their home remodeling upgrading this that and the, other so we're spending like crazy And that's good. For our economy but can the good times last yeah there is there is conflicting data out there I think that would be the fairest. Way to put it yes all of the things you just talked about solid indicators that people are, buying consumer goods or. Shopping they're paying for vacations But we're putting. It on our credit cards Pamela we're putting it on our. Credit, cards we have confidence that we can go out and shop and put it on the visa MasterCard. The AmEx but now We're, seeing more and, more, Americans defaulting, on their credit cards also their their car. Notes that have we overextended, ourselves so when it comes to the economy that they look at a, lot of indicator so yeah Macy's doing well. Lowe's Home Depot all those types of things are good indicators but on the negative side you gotta look at the amount of time that people who are, purchasing a car are, asking to pay it off so those auto. By, borrowers are asking for more time to. Pay the car instead of like three years or four years asking for five or six, years, you also. Look at Those with the poorest credit card records the the, subprime borrowers yeah their credit card debt, increased twenty six percent now. I'm going to make the assumption that those people with. The the worst credit card record also have the highest highest interest rates and so. You see, the double whammy, with, that that, they are paying probably a higher interest rate. On their credit card than, you are I have because they have they don't have a strong a, credit but they have this belief this confidence. To go out and buy things flat screen TV's and vacations in Mexico or whatnot and they're having trouble paying it back like is this the first crack. In the dam Pamela We've heard that. You know economies this is not credit or listen I don't give presidents credit for the economy or don't give them blame the economy is. A cycle we've seen it go up we've seen it go down, it has to do with a variety of factors okay that's just the reality of, it, and if you look at it, over long periods of time you'll see it looks like a wave has peaks and valleys, okay Are people starting to default on credit. Card debt an, early indicator that maybe we were a little bit overconfident maybe we that as good as things are because we hear about cutting taxes and, business doing well but is it not getting. To, people they felt good about it. But their paycheck didn't actually change we're not there yet I give. The argument, that you're making, but we're not. Quite there yet I think a. Lot of people will go back to like recent memory two thousand seven. Two thousand eight when the. Economy just went bust and. People were foreclosing on their. Homes or walking away from their homes and losing. Jobs. And it was a tough time. Rock bottom yeah the tough time we're not there we're not, there because I want to give some perspective on this so. Yes This is the seventh straight. Quarterly increase on the, amount of people defaulting on their credit cards so for seven quarter straight almost two years people are more and more defaulting on their credit cards that's a bad thing and it kind of plays into what you're saying like is this an indicator but, this is where you gotta bring in some of the numbers, because people might think okay well that was kind of an indicator you know getting into two thousand, eight when some of the early indices? So right now the credit, card default rate is at three. Point six five percent. Two's pretty low in two thousand eight, at the height of all hell. Breaking loose default rates were above ten percent okay okay so while we, are defaulting more, than we have the previous quarter the previous the question is is taking up it is taking up but I think that this is showing, us that we're far from where we were. And, we can rain at in in. One place that they're saying you can rain at in is by. The revolving Debt now the. Revolving debt is what, you're talking about with the big screen TV or the Mexico vacation where you put it on the credit card with the intention of paying it off hanging up down the road but you don't you You pay in a moment cetera revolves revolves you find something else, to spend money. On And that. Dad, the revolving debt month over month is at the, highest we've seen since nineteen ninety-five again I just see a lot of these. Things happening and. I don't think you need to be a Have a crystal ball to say these things can't continue to exist in the same world what is it going to take Pamela in Europe Dave Ramsey a disciple you are a graduate, of financial peace university what is it going to take for these people with this. Large, amount of revolving debt to fundamentally change the way, they look about shopping and keep this in mind Here's here's the dirty little secret and all this What's what's If Americans suddenly have, an epiphany everyone out there, is like you? Know what I don't want to end up like it did in two thousand. And eight I'm going to start paying off my credit, card debt and we're going to. Stop shopping you know what. That means our economy takes a hit because it's based on you going out and buying things you can't afford and putting it on. Credit cards like there, is a there is a that's not my. Problem damned if, you do if you, don't argument I don't subscribe, to that but that's the people that already have. The debt if buying things that impact. This, negativity well I mean you're paying. Off debt so you've. Already purchased there's always going to be people that are buying things even though I do not have a. Credit, card. No no not even one with with reward miles, for. Said airline I don't have any car that I buy what I can afford and pay cash. For it I'm. Still consuming I'm. Still buying I'm just living within. My means my point is That is a epiphany for many. People that is a. Learning thing what is going to happen for the tens of.

"On ninety, two three FM fruit Saint Jeeves and Pamela Hughes Little little Bob Seger for you I love me some Bob Seger. I, am so excited because here's a concert. I ever went through my life is okay see. I wanna go see him in concert they had to reschedule his concert from last. Year it's going to be very fifteenth next year and and. I go see Seger okay my mom took me because you couldn't find a babysitter side, that's a great reason to take their cash I think. It's a pretty safe conduct to I go see Seger you go see Bob. Seger. And he doesn't play night moves okay what's going to happen. I'm going to be text do you know Obviously. You don't care That song was released in. Nineteen, seventy six carrots Stuff that like. You know I my dad, raised me listening to I, love me some senior the. Concert I wanna see I. Wanna hear night moves should artists be required forced should they be forced to disclose, what songs, are going to? Play before a concert an artist like Bob. Seger I don't know. How many albums he's had it's been a lot he probably has hundreds of, songs I'm going to. Assume in and to him the songs are, important if he if you go to a concert how do you guarantee that he's going to play the song that you want, to hear you getting knowledge that in a room. Full of ten thousand people at a Bob Seger there's a bunch of people that have a favorite Bob Seeger. Song and he. Can't get to, all of them I get it I get it but I also think that artists like j three of the Bob Seger cousin item I'm. Into my eighth, album now we've got a few more songs to go like there are the heads Okay what Like. That Just, fired off which is a great song A good song because he journey and granted I know that, like? Journey, of, today is different. Than journey right. Yes sir cover. Band going you, don't hear don't stop believing Here's the thing and and this is. I don't like live concerts I don't I, don't go to any of them anymore it's just for me the, experiences different and I've been to a couple thousand of them, I? Don't, need, to see anybody. Ever again get. Off my lawn I've dealt with artists, and understand where. The, artists come from this and it, basically comes down to people more and, more going to? Big concerts and these bands not playing their hits anymore they're playing their new music which is why most bands go out and tour it. Used to be to quote. Promote an album well Kevin Kevin road into a journalist and he was complaining because he says you know what I'm a casual nine inch nails founding dimensional after paying several hundred dollars for. Tickets for him and his wife nine. Inch nails in play the big hits like this one. Had like a whole didn't play had. Like what kind of, league play closer audience member have a perfumer. Does not. Play his hits as a casual fan wants. To hear the hits, the casual fan pays the same price for the his concerts seat. Is the die hard fan I think that, like download the song Okay I don't go too many concerts because I have been disappointed. Grant I know you got a new. Album you're gonna play the new. Album and if I'm coming to your, concert then I should probably download the album to be a little bit familiar with. It but in the grand scheme of, things I like. You I like your band because of your. Hits that's what introduced me to your. Bank so when I get, there I wanna hear. Them I think it's difficult for artists to. Begin I've had the. Opportunity I've talked to some of these artists and some get it and some don't now when I say get, it some of them do. This, reluctantly I've never met an artist from snoop Dogg to. Incubus, wow that's a. Rain I don't know if it's that bigger, age but I Pop hip hop and I worked in alternative yeah yeah okay okay so kind of you know my my big bands if you will in those since I. Never knew one of them that liked doing quote unquote their biggest. Song at every single show you've heard. That song and just like you..
