State lawmakers are getting a closer look at governor JB pritzker's program to prevent and end homelessness. There are more than 120,000 people experiencing homelessness in Illinois, and the goal of home Illinois is to bring that number down to zero. That, according to state homeless director Christine Haley at a House committee hearing. This isn't some pie in the sky that we can end the homelessness someday. When we say and homelessness that really means that we have a system that when people come into a homelessness situation that there's a resource for them on the other side and that we are very quickly able to connect them to that said resource to stabilize their housing situation. The governor wants to see a $350 million investment in the program for things like street outreach, rental assistance, more shelter and permanent supportive housing and a new initiative to help homeless adults find and keep a job.

"Was the night before Christmas and all through the house. Not a creature was stirring. Not even a mouse. The stockings were hung by the chili with care. It hopes. That saint Nicholas soon would be there. The children were nestled all snug in their beds while visions of sugar plums danced in their heads. And mama in her kirchen than I and my cap, had just settled down for a long winter's nap. When out on the lawn, there arose such a clatter, I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter. Awaited the window, I flew like a flash, tore open the shutters, and threw up the sash. The moon on the breast of the new fallen snow. Gave the luster of midday to objects below. When what to my wondering eyes should appear, but a miniature sleigh and 8 tiny reindeer. With a little old driver, so lively and quick. I knew in a moment, it must be saint Nick, more rapid than eagles his courses, they came. And he whistled and shouted and called them by name. Now dasher now dancer now prancer and vixen on comet on Cupid on donner and blitzen to the top of the porch to the top of the wall. Now dash away, dash away, dash away all. As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly when they meet with an obstacle mount to the sky. So up to the housetop, the coursers they flew with a slight full of toys and saint Nicholas too. And then in a twinkling, I heard on the roof, the prancing and pawing of each little hoof. As I drew in my hand and was turning around, down the chimney, saint Nicholas came with a bound. He was dressed in all fur from his head to his foot and his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot, a bundle of toys he had flung on his back, and he looked like a peddler just opening his pack. His eyes how they twinkled, his dimples, how merry, his cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry, his droll little mouth, was drawn up like a bow, and the beard of his chin. Was as white as the snow. The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth, and the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath. He had a broad face and a little round belly. That shook when he laughed like a bowl full of jelly. He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf, and I laughed when I saw him in spite of myself. A wink of his eye and a twist of his head soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread. He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work and filled all the stockings, then turned with a jerk, and laying his finger aside of his nose and giving a nod up the chimney he rose. He sprang to his sleigh to his team gave a whistle, and away they flew like the down of a thistle, but I heard him exclaim ere he drove out of sight. Happy Christmas to all

Sacred sites see development on this week's AP Religion Roundup.
"Sacred sites see development on this week's AP religion roundup. A church reopens at ground zero and a Jordan River baptism site may soon see a new village. More than two decades after a tiny Greek Orthodox church in Lower Manhattan was destroyed in the September 11th attacks, that church is far grander replacement open to the public this week. Michael sorrows helped organize the new saint Nicholas Greek Orthodox church and shrine. The national shrine completes the Trinity at ground zero. You have the museum. You have the reflecting polls, but now faith has been restored to ground zero. Say Nicholas is in an elevated park overlooking the rebuilt trade centers memorial Plaza. Olga Pablo says it has been a long time coming. 21 years, a lot of hardships, a lot of ups and downs, but we finally made it. Meanwhile, another building project is being planned on the banks of the Jordan River near the traditional baptism side of Jesus. This is worried some who want to preserve the area's character. Samir murad tears the organization planning the development. The baptism site itself is a Unesco World Heritage protected site. And will remain in its pristine condition as it has done for the past 2000 years. The Jordanian government donated about 340 acres of land for the development of the area known as Bethany beyond the Jordan. Tradition says John the Baptist, baptized Jesus here in what became Christianity's third holiest site. Many modern day visitors Don white robes and immerse themselves in the sacred waters, the development work will kick off with a sustainable village near the historic site. Later stages will see the introduction of botanical gardens, a bird sanctuary, and a wellness center. Historian Ian torrhen says preservation in the midst of development is crucial. Part of the listing is to preserve the site in its wilderness state, not turn it into something which is over commercialized, but to retain its spirituality. I'm Walter ratliff.

Punters who had placed approximately two and a half $1 million in winterbook wagers on the horse were sorely disappointed. As was trainer O'Brien, who remarked, we thought he could walk on water. It would be 11 months before saint Nicholas Abbey returned to the races and he did so with a third place finish in a minor stakes in Ireland. One journalist commented that the return was hardly worth the wait. Another declared that the now four year old could no longer be backed with any confidence. But in these very next start in England, saint Nicholas Abbey won a group three stakes by 9 lengths, and then on June 3rd, he notched his second career group one victory rallying down the stretch under jockey Ryan Moore to win the coronation cup at a mile and a half at epsom.

What's the sort of structure of the holiday celebration? We really looking forward always to have that time of the year Christmas, but we start already earlier, especially in Belgium and hall, we have the 6th of December that a lot of people don't even heard of. You have sent the class. We have central class. Are we celebrated both in Belgium and in the Netherlands? Yes. And that was a little maybe a little bit more innocent of the class. You remember when the synth arrives from Spain and it comes on a boat and it's an Amsterdam and a canal somewhere. Yes, in Belgium, we used to tune into Dutch television to see Nicholas arrive on his steamboat from Spain and it dates back to a story about an ancient bishop in Spain who was very benevolent and then it got 3D through the centuries turned into somebody who rewarded good children which, of course, parents exploited very quickly. So when you were a child, you watched on TV, saint Nicholas. Oh my God. Actually, who took the steamboat from Spain? Writing in Amsterdam. And I was official welcomes for saint Nicholas he also had his servants with him black Peters. The black Peters, yeah? Yes. So this was his sidekick, black Peter. Black Peter, that's right, yes. Who basically, the scent on the night of the 5th December into the chimney, so they covered in the dress in renaissance gear they have these velvety breaches on. And they have a huge bag and a whip, which is for the bad kids. So they come and take your bad kids from your home. This is terrifying. I remember I can tell you story livable my childhood. My mom and dad used to play this very well. I was kind of, I wouldn't say obnoxious kid, but anyway, I was kind of hard to handle and he always would run that time of the year. I was very, very, how are you saying? Terrifying. A little because the arrival of black matter. She would tell me he's coming and he's going to come and covered with black suit and with a whip. Oh my gosh, I was totally afraid. You're a good little boy. I was a good little boy. Just for that. Parents use saint Nicholas day, December 6th. Yeah. Is that what it is saint Nicholas day? And then if you're good kids, you have some presents. You get rewarded at what you do on the night of the 5th of December. You put your shoe out because those years ago you get tiny presence. You have your shoe and what you put a carrot for saint Nicholas's holes because they come over the roof, saint Nicholas seat on a horse, black Pete on a mule with a big bag and a whip and then they'll come through the chimney and then they'll give the food to the horse in Belgium also put a trappist in the shoe most beer. Monastery beer to reward black people. See a bright black Peter with a little beer. To not use his whip on you and hopefully next day you find presence because if not the fine charcoal or you find twigs in your shoes and somehow the next morning, black Peter Drake the beer, the beer is probably gone. My dad would usually be very happy that he probably drank it. Remember when we had no carrots? I'm talking about some years ago, but carrots is not really a vegetable that was grown in the winter. We put some sugar lumps in it there. Okay. Because horses like sugar. So the reindeer didn't come, then it was coming from Spain and with his horse and on the 7 day and no win for the kids. And I remember my mom going to the local bake during the week we didn't notice his kits, and she would make an appointment and then the local bank addresses up as saint Nicholas. The dress up as black people. They rattled chains on the shutter so you terrified this children under the table. We were sitting on the table. I remember that. The same comes in and you know the voice from the baker. And he opens the big wide book with all your sins so you believe this is true. He knew you. He knew you were like oh God, New York was a very local at the time. The size of town. Okay, so that's December 6th. And then there's a couple of weeks where not much is going on or what happens. There was a time that don't you think Nina that sonic loves was actually a bigger party than that Christmas because they were presents. And then when Christmas, Christmas was more the religious movement family and much more in church was much more the birth of Jesus and it was the religion and you went to master the nightmares. I wasn't a choir, I was acquired. I didn't get presents when I was young for Christmas. And saint Nicholas. And now it's all changing. In the closet still there, but not as much because they have the big dinner and then you have the presentation. On the tree. Let's talk about the Christmas December 24 December 25 celebrations in Belgium. What would happen typically? We do mostly every year. It's like 24, we are invited with our families, the night before Christmas. We have a great dinner. We get the gatter, and we open our presence at midnight, at midnight. Yeah. Is that after church or regardless of church? It depends. If you go to the midnight mass, which usually started on 11, you'd be out midnight. Did you go back home around midnight half past midnight and Daniel open your presence? So kids are staying up pretty late on that. Oh yeah. It's great. Every time. It's so fun to talk to both of you about this because you're both lighting up like children here remember what it brings back memories. I thought it was a fantastic time.

"Know. What do you think the song is saying to us. Don't ask me that. I wouldn't even begin to try to interpret prince's lyrics. But i feel like one of the things i love about this song is you feel his sensitivity in a completely different way in a quiet way. What you remember him quiet rambunctious loud. How do you remember him when you like. What is the image that comes up in your mind the most when you think of him now. I think i've been laughing at me all the time because he used a role is is just like. Oh my goodness randy. What next now. What are you doing now. What are you making me do.

"And what i thought was particularly odd. There's actually a piece in the racing post today. And it's nicky henderson. Look i've i've done. The i gn is horrible. Side line ridge with brandy. I've done that. And i've done that sitting beside him at a preview and sundown. Look nikki. nikki. He he was asked about this because he used to train vita rock and he. He said that it was a mega shock. And he said that his wife sophie had to consoled the staff member who had cared for that horse as she was in bits now. Well done the racing post because that's incredibly important that that's put out there because in ad no point. Did the bbc shine allies on. Who's look who's looking after these horses. The care and attention that is given the low of that is given to these sources. What he what he went on to say was the film set out to do a hatchet job on racing and while they may have achieved that to a small degree they didn't really carry a lot of ways. It made everyone in the sport though. Sit up we need to take some of the points put forward in the program and we've made good progress in lot of fronts. But we have to be absolutely certain about traceability of horses when they leave the sport. Now that's a subject that you've brought brought up with the horse who was involved in the grand national irish grand national. Tammy's help and what the bbc portray is mysteriously five years later actually said here's tammy's hill and they show a horse standing there now. Nikola can you explain to me. Please how tommy's hills chip for from the irish grand national from five years before got into this sources neck and how this horse was being portrayed and they did this. The bbc did this. I five years later. Mysteriously here's the horse at the slaughter. Having already been killed various. Explain that to me. Is i'm going to suggest the the actual scenario off irish grand national day and then five years later in a in a british slaughterhouse on irish grand national day tummy tail is a full fence. I think as the ten clearly goes at the whole would be no less than ten minutes would suggest on irish grand national day The horse would be humanely destroyed. The races almost instantly because there is no diagnosis to make. Although the fact the leg has gone on three legged horses don't exist so the horse is without doubt destroyed the irish crime national. Do you mind uncertain. Sorry just because we have a lot of new listeners to the show and i know a lot of people are gonna listen to this because they want they want answers and they want to get a clearer picture. The first example. That comes to mind when i was on talksport. Talking about this with chaban is Saint nicholas abbey and the fact that he had a terrible foot and leg problem and we'll more sedate him. They had him in harness. They spent probably close to a million trying to save his life and they had them there for a couple of months. It didn't work it just didn't and the the thing is we. We are literally living in a year. Where a young woman was killed. While riding a racehorse. I have a friend who was writing an x ray source whose wife was writing an x ray source. She fell off the horse and It wasn't until she got to the hospital that they realized do not move..

Another European Christmas
"A lot of the essential components of our Christmas celebrations originated in Germany. They gave us the Christmas tree. And MM Silent Knight. Let's start the hour to see how our friends Fabian. Reuter Caroliina Marburger. An hoeger Zimmer are enjoying the season in Germany Fabien Caroliina holder. Thanks so much for sharing your Christmas with us. Thanks for having knocking. Yeah so when you think about Germany Americans think about Oh Tanenbaum. That's German German. Isn't it a Christmas tree. Let's think about back when you were children. What are the memories? Carolin- tell me about the Christmas tree and how you decorated my favorite thing. Actually is that we always back in the day to day. It's just our family but back in the day all our friends come to our house and we went out to cut the treats and we still do cut the trees ourselves back. The old tradition is actually because I come from a region where the forest is owned by the Duke and so the tradition actually is surprisingly. It was the proper thing to do. You stole it. That was what was expected. So no no you have to see the dentist proper Christmas tree steal the tree from the Duke. Yes and then we bring it home and it would take a full day and everyone's efforts to to decorate it and of because natural candles. Of course that's natural candle holder. We still lex. You also cut the Christmas to L. together with my little daughter's with that solution to go out it and of course now we buy it. Did you not there anymore but I remember back to my childhood lot of secrecy is involved. Someone got the tree. Put it up. But we can't couldn't see that because it was kind of hitting it was like levintv similar like the living room would turn into the Christmas Room. Two doors is locked. The door is not there so living was actually no go zone zone so basically whatever goes on in terms of you know putting the Nativity scene or you know decorating at creating the tree. Getting all the stuff on there into candles. Dennis done behind closed doors so only then when like maybe after coming from Church then you were allowed a little bell rings acting thinking and Daniel would come in and everything was there like the cans were late and that was like the first time we kids and still. That's what we do still under that you've of creative. The parents create this wonder for the children's and that's all I see that's still in the eyes of my little daughter she comes. Dan knocked out. What happened it? Tree is decorated his presence. The Kendall's the real candles on the tree. We've Kennel sedate at something. Where the fire extinguisher nearby bucket of water? Water Fabio near Childhood Memories. Have the tree the candles. The Real Campbell's very important but for me the the Christmas season really always began with December six with the morning of Saint Nicholas Day. Oh Yeah because that is the day that Santa Claus drops by for the first time to tell you whether you have been good this year. Not Give you little inkling a little hint and so the evening you would put your shoes out and then go to bed and the next morning i the Santa Claus or his assistant have given you hint. If you've been good child. Santa Claus is left possibly chocolate or even little gift in your shoes. If you've been bad there's a lump of coal but do you have time then to make good before Christmas this come between December. Because I'm a very good child. Important about that is not only put up when you have to shine to shows I you gotta work for that. uh-huh yes otherwise. No no failing and then did you normally have some good news or bad news and six personally Always made sure would have good news so I tried to be have before December six. This is one thing that transcends borders the kids are being extorted and frightened being the good kid. So you're not you're nice and what about music or movies or TV specials In America we have certain you know cherished specials In Germany as a child or your kids today well of course it is the Christmas songs that we expect to sing in church the silent knight that everyone else things of course in any language but in its original form. And it's the most common Christmas movie that we watched one of my cherished films. That is a check East German production of nineteen seventy-three offer Cinderella Three Cinderella from Reno and it is one of the most feisty Cinderella's there isn't a thing in the world and wait a minute the most charming three that's for sure and this is produced by communist East Germany and the Socialists wanted to check you. How could this be that? The Communist governments would partner and producer a Christmas. Everyone needs fairytales. Yeah they they produce wonderful ones did have an agenda or was it just a political agenda. It's just it's a very we've very strong Cinderella and like some of the more Vegas silent ones when it comes to traditions also music like for us. It is important that we sing together. Like it's not just like report on a tape and there's like bing crosby going on now it's like the old traditional songs that we used to sing and we like to sing and when we come home from church differ thing we do is on Christmas Eve. We get together and sit in one room just candles in a hand and we sing as a family together the Christmas song and if we really want to do it might kid wants. Do We dance around the Christmas tree. It's kind of weird but it's still lives on. These traditions are still there. This is great to know that it lives on. I've been in Nurnberg on a very cold night with a group going from square to square and into the Church courtyard and Kendall it and singing these songs with Gusto. And it's just beautiful to hear the Christmas carols that I grew up with in German. The Silent Knight was originally in German. I mean Americans probably think it was written in English but no that's a translation steal enough right
