Some Black-Owned Businesses Are Turning To New Banks For Paycheck Protection Loans

"To help keep workers on payrolls. Businesses owned by black and Latino people were often at the back of the line. Those firms often had to wait longer for money, even though many were desperate for financial help. With a new round of business loans in the pipeline. Authorities are now trying to address that disparity as NPR's Scott Horsley reports like a lot of business sellers. Jennifer Kelly's income took a hit last year when the pandemic struck. She's a clinical psychologist near Atlanta, and some of her clients didn't make the adjustment to online or telephone counseling. Kelly, who has two employees applied to her regular bank for a loan under the federal government's Paycheck protection program. But she says the process was frustrating. It's kind of like trying to get the vaccine. They put my name on the list. And there they finally said, Oh, we all have anymore, And we're sorry that first round of P P p loans was exhausted In less than two weeks. Lots of businesses complained that banks were prioritizing their biggest customers. Bones were especially hard to come by in neighborhoods with a lot of black and brown residents When I needed them. They were not available to man, including. I'm not the big business, but I'm a small business and committed like with the fabric of America. When Congress okayed a second round of P P p loans last year, Kelly applied again. This time through a bank 250 miles away in Savannah, Georgia that specializes in working with black own firms. They were very patient through that entire process, and I didn't get approved for the loan, and I do hope that, especially in the small black banks will survive because We need to have those institutions that second bank Kelly worked with. Carver State Bank was founded 94 years ago with the goal of building financial freedom for its African American customers. 80% of its loans go to black owned businesses. Robert James, who sits on the bank's board, says he received P P p applications from around the country most looking for less than $50,000. Most of our applications are very small businesses individually owned gas station in the neighborhood or restaurants are people deserve a lot of credit for the hard work that they're putting in just to make sure that we get help to the customers that need it. The most According to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. Even before the pandemic, black owned businesses were more than twice as likely beyond shaky financial footing as white owned firms. CEO Janine Jake Oak of the Community Development Bankers Association, says that means the extra time it took for loans to reach those businesses could be costly. They had a lot less cushion to start with, which made them much more vulnerable when the economy went south. Authorities have tried to address the disparity in P P p lending in a number of ways. First they've made more money available. They also gave banks that specialize in minority and low income communities, a head start when the latest round of paycheck protection loans was launched last month. Finally, while the loans were designed to be forgiven, some black borrowers are suspicious, a legacy of the long history of discriminatory lending. So education is also important. Carver States, James says he tried to reassure African American borrowers they can use P p p loans to keep their businesses and communities afloat. I've heard a lot of stories of customers who were eligible for these funds, but didn't trust that there wouldn't be some sort of a catch. Craig Gordon runs a company that provides in home nursing care in Georgia about 30% of his business is on hold right now because many of his customers are wary of letting anyone even a skilled nurse into their home during the pandemic. With Carver States help Gordon's just been approved for a second p p. P loan. This will buy us probably three of four months, and I'm hoping that all of those vulnerable folks that we served by again will be well vaccinated. In the meantime, cordon says the forgivable loan will help him keep dozens of people on the payroll. Scott Horsley. NPR NEWS Washington

Jon Ossoff and the Rev. Raphael Warnock on the issues that would drive them in the Senate

"Why did you think that now is the time to run an office and run for. Us senate well. My whole life has been about service. I'm pastor served beneath baptist church. But i've been engaged in these fights from that copay for years i've been fighting for healthcare access and affordability for years standing up in acts of civil disobedience demanding that we expand medicaid in the state. I've been fighting for voting rights at work alongside. My friend stacy abrams. We registered through the new georgia project. Which i chaired. Four hundred thousand new voters in the state. I've been standing up for the dignity of workers and they're ready to share in some of the prosperity that they've created and i think my passion for these issues emerges from my life story someone who grew up in public housing down in savannah. Georgia wanted twelve number eleven and the first college graduate my family so my success as a result of hard work but also grants low interest student loans. Good public policy. I know the difference that good public policy meetings and as running for the us senate and so in your campaign running around the state. That hasn't voted for a democrat for president since ninety. Two and president-elect. Joe biden is on the cusp of perhaps winning the state of georgia talk about one. Why president-elect biden's message seemed to resonate in georgia and what impact that has had on your race and also talk about what you've heard on the campaign trail because i can imagine you went all around the state. You didn't just stay in atlanta campaigning. No that's a good point. I've been moving all across the state. And you know that. That's important jonathan because there is this narrative in georgia politics. There's atlanta and then the rest of the state and so i'm from savannah southeast part of the state. But i've been on a bus moving across the state dropped by small towns like america's george Cuthbert georgia down randolph county. And the people are surprised. When i show up and i'm surprised that they're surprised but they say to me that they have not seen a candidate show up in their town. Which is interesting to me. Because i'm running to represent the whole state rule and the north and the south. And i'm getting to see first. Hand the concerns that people are having and what do people concerned about. They're concerned about healthcare. They're concerned about the fact that they want to make sure they don't lose the coverage that they have that coverage is affordable had eight hospitals close in this state largely because we refuse to expand medicaid is the unnecessary war that the republican party has waged against president obama who no longer in office and the people are the casualties in that war. Their hospitals are closing in these rural areas devastating rule healthcare and also taking away jobs. And so i think the people voted the other night when they voted for joan by. And when david purdue failed to get a majority of his voters even though he's the incumbent and i finished ahead of kelly leffler even though she's the incumbent that people are voting for unity over division and chaos there voting for healthcare they're voting for a livable wage and the ability to retire with dignity. They're voting for the best in the human condition and the american spirit when you're out on the campaign trail though in those parts of georgia that perhaps aren't hospitable to a democratic candidate. What kind of response are you getting. What are you hearing from those voters. I think people appreciate the fact that you're willing to talk to them. And that's my orientation is not a strategic political decision. Quite frankly part of what running gives me an opportunity to do. Is to do what i would normally want to do. Anyway and spend time with talking to people who don't see the world exactly the way. I do one of the things that disappointed me. About the fact that we're living through this deadly and tragic pandemic is that i had hoped earlier in the campaign to get across the state and drop into some of these wednesday night bible studies. I'm a passenger after all and they're people who don't share my politics but we read from the same book and there must be some values there must be some common ground. There must be a place where we can talk about the things that we actually agree on.

How monkeys played an instrumental role in the development of polio vaccines

"In the nineteen forties. America was under a constant threat from polio. A disease that had a then unknown cause and devastating effects especially in children. It spread quickly through unclean water and unwashed hands leading to symptoms like nausea fatigue. Fever and a stiffening of the body summers especially saw surges infections particularly around swimming holes leading to post polio paralysis and in some cases death on average thirty five thousand people were disabled each year. According to the centers for disease control and prevention president franklin delano roosevelt was among the most notable people to get the condition putting a face to a still uncertain disease. A vaccine was desperately needed as scientists learned about the transmission process including the fact that anyone could be a carrier in the next few years rival scientists jonas and albert sabin worked with teams in their labs on two completely different vaccines. Sabin worked on an oral vaccine. While sulk created an injectable vaccine that using a kill version of polio in the book polio and american story. David m ocean ski writes about the urgency of work. During the time quote. I talk there was reason to hurry the year. Nineteen fifty two was the worst polio year. On record with more than fifty seven thousand cases nationwide the headlines screamed of plague season and polio time. Twenty one thousand victims suffered permanent paralysis and about three thousand died from the very beginning of the polio epidemic. Monkeys were considered to be essential for research before human trials could take place becoming the unsung heroes of the fight to defeat the disease was through animal research that scientists i discovered that there were three strains of the deadly disease. The monkeys were purchased at a high cost from india and the philippines and shipped to the united states. Many died in transit so the national foundation for infantile paralysis now known as the march of dimes began overseeing their import in nineteen forty nine. A foundation established a special facility known as ot farms and rural south carolina to process the monkeys arriving from abroad oak tree farms operated in the picnic colony a beaufort county in coastal south carolina. Originally called the prichard bill primate center. The forty acre or sixteen hectare tract of land along. The river was called by local newspapers. The ellis island for thousands of monkeys from india naturalist john. Hamlet had the job of finding a space for the primate center. That was both connected to deep water ports and airports but also remote enough for neighbors the area he chose closely approximated the natural habitats of the monkeys with its abundance of shady long leaf pines and a mild climate. The monkeys were originally brought into savannah. Georgia one of the region's biggest ports and taken by truck the thirty odd miles or fifty some kilometers to the farm. When air travel became more popular they were flown by a london and new york before travelling by train to the low country. Once they arrived at the farm veterinarians treated the two thousand or so recess and sign a mogus monkeys before clearing them for transport to research facilities around the country. The monkeys spent twenty one days. Getting acclimated and eating a special diet was scientists carefully monitoring their status many went to sell nukes facility in pittsburg and sabin in ann arbor where they were given vaccines to test the vaccine. Strength against the three strains of poliovirus a few locals were aware of the research that was going on at the farm. Despite rumors of people encountering the animals we were unable to discover any opposition to the research facility perhaps because it was not well known and also because opposition to using animals and testing was not very common at the time in the united states. The movement against animal testing didn't pick up steam until around nineteen eighty in any case. The farms purpose wasn't permanent. Once sox polio vaccine was deemed a success and released to the public in nineteen fifty-five the work of qatif arms was no longer necessary and the facility closed in nineteen fifty-nine saban's oral vaccine came into use in nineteen sixty one the foundation that had established the facility. Its attention to reducing premature births. The monkeys found new homes and labs across the country. According to a former employee named louise crawford things at the farm were left just as they were including the monkey cages. A caretaker kept the grass and plant life at bay. The lab was locked up ready for someone new to take on the important task of preparing monkeys for research but that day never came in nineteen eighty the land and its contents were sold to development group. The lab equipment was donated to a local school science department while a farmer claimed the former monkey cages for his own animals. Today acreage along. The river is mostly residential and privately owned thanks to south and saban's vaccines polio cases of plummeted from three hundred and fifty thousand nine.

Low-cost sensors help Savannah, Georgia, track flooding

"Twenty seventeen king perma flooded parts of savannah georgia and many people evacuated but once they left they had trouble getting information about how bad the flooding was. Where if it was safe to go back and part of that was because there was only historically one noah tide gauge reading water levels essentially on the entire georgia coast and certainly not at the neighborhood level or street level where we could see what was happening. That's georgia tech computer. Scientists are russell clark. His team is working with city officials. And chatham county emergency management agency to fix that. They've installed about fifty low cost sensors on bridges docks and canals. Our objective is to monitor as closely as we can and as extensively as we can the water levels across the chatham county area paying specific interest to critical infrastructure things like bridges roads neighborhoods. The sorts of community resources typically have not been well monitored or well observed the real time data is available online and as c. levels rise and storms become more extreme.

Onion Domestication and Improvement

"We're going to talk about domestication again of a unique vegetable and when you ask people what their favorite vegetable is very few people say the onion however it's hard to think of vegetable or plant item for that matter. That has a more ubiquitous place in our culinary universe. It's you know the powders. The the the the basic parts of onion are important flavor in many different things that we consume and i think about just about everything i cook starts chopping up and onion so i wanted to pursue. Where did it come from. How did we get it. Where is it going. And so we're speaking with dr mike heavy. He's a he works with the. Usda agricultural research service in madison wisconsin and also as a faculty member in a department of horticulture. So welcome to the podcast. dr heavy. thank you so much. This is really cool. I think i actually got to see you. Give a talk once. And i can't remember where it where it was but i think what did you ever give talk in savannah georgia at the national onion association meeting. Yes i did about four five years ago. We had a joint meeting between the national onion association and then all the research community. I think we met there. Yeah that's i seem to remember that. Yeah i think. I may have asked you at the time too. If you'd be a guest on the podcast and just takes time so. Let's talk about onions. Like i mentioned before it has such an important culinary value. Where did it come from end. Do natural populations still exist. So the onion like many of our grain and vegetable and fruit crops was domesticated in central asia specifically iran. Turkmenistan afghanistan that area and it spread from there around the world and is now consumed in produced on every continent except in artika. There are still the most closely related. Wild specie is called alien babalola by and that grows naturally still in the kopech. Dr region which forms the border between northern iran and southern turkmenistan. And so the wild relatives still exists. There probably was in prehistory was more widely distributed but We can still find alien. Below by inet area oval ovalles. That was a discovery or at least a characterization by vavilov the species is named after him. Allie taxonomy in the former soviet union named this wild species after nikolai. About by batalov. Okay i never remember seeing so much about his his expeditions into places like iran. Turkmenistan you that he was Know prolific in that area. So but that makes sense to when you talk about the species of wild onion. I know that even here in florida there are things that they haul a florida. Wild onion and in chicago is named by from indigenous peoples term for stinky onion. So are these related to the major culinary onions or are these some kind of distant relative first of all the alliens. The genus of onion is distributed around the northern hemisphere and here in north america. Most albums have a seven chromosomes whereas onion and garlic chai have a basic chromosome number of eight. So they're distant relatives and we can't cross them with onion but they do have unique flavors in many places there still collected in consumed but really are very distantly related to the onion that we know. Have there been any efforts that you're aware of to domesticate those regional varieties that are grown with the seven chromosome ones that are growing around. Say the native united states. Yes you do find him showing up. Sometimes farmers markets different species out west in the california in the rockies. There are numerous albums that can be collected in consumed but to my knowledge. There's no effort to really Breed them in and develop some unique flavors or production characteristics from them so the primarily just collected so when you talk about the actual album that was used that is the forefather of the modern onion. Who was really the first to domesticate that they would have been probably nomadic tribes in central asia most of the central asian republics of the former soviet union onion and many of its wild relatives naturally exist and probably these people's started collecting him in eating them initially and ultimately i feel Asexually propagated them. Much like you would. Shall it today break apart. The basal plate planet and then i think probably seed production at conscious breeding occurred later but it would have been nomadic tribes in central asia tens of thousands of years ago they mostly use it for food flavoring or were there other potential uses of onion now. That's an interesting question that has been quite a topic of debate. A couple of things may have played an important role in the domestication of onion. One of them is that Because it was an editorial form is a perennial grows every year. It sprouts very early in the spring and many of your listeners may grow chives and the green leaves of tribes. Come out very early in while alley. That's true as well. It's not a good source of vitamin c. But it does have vitamin cs. I think you could think about a nomadic tribes taking advantage of that early green growth of the leaves in the spring as a source of vitamin c and potentially other vitamins and flavorings but the taste is also has to have an effect. I think and. I wonder if maybe wasn't important to mask off. Flavors maybe for some ranson meets or different foods that may not have it have an off taste and that maybe the early domesticated is used that straw salt pungency flavor compounds in the album's to their benefit.

Savannah residents nurture young trees in vacant lots

"Savannah Georgia is famous for its trees graceful live oaks griped with Spanish moss shade many of its historic streets. The city's trees are not only beautiful.

How a Law School Dropout Builds Profitable Companies Using Virtual Assistants with Ravi Abuvala

"Ravi say what's up to fire nation and sheriff something interesting about yourself that most people don't know what is going on fire nation. Thank you guys for lending me your ears I've been listening to this podcast for quite a while now, and it's a little surreal experience to be on this end of it. So this morning I'm thinking I listen to this for very long time and I'm like I. Know John's GonNa. Ask Me something that a lot of people don't know and like any online digital marketer. Open Book and so I was like what? So I'm going to share with you guys on that literally one person this entire world knows and it's funny I'm bringing it out on this block Seo but about a year ago in July of Twenty nineteen, I had this weird edge and I ended up actually selling all of my stuff in. Florida about a week including my caller just junked it and I moved to. Spain and I lived in Spain for about forty five days and I was just hopping coastal city council city working on businesses, work my clients, and while I was in a coastal city. In Spain I'm not GONNA say what? So people don't look up when I'm about to tell you my walls in a coastal city in Spain I don't drink. I drink a few times a year and I was out at this pretty cool jazz club and I was like two three in the morning, which is in Spain when they're just getting started really and there's a brawl breaks out right where I'm at at the bar or ordering a soda at the Bar and just abroad but breaks out right next to me and ends up at, I. Try to break the brawl up the police come. they come up to me I speak decent Spanish because I've lived abroad for a while but not good enough to get me out of the situation I I actually end up spending the next three and a half hours in a drunk tank and a small jail cell in a coastal city in Spain and it took him a while to you if I had to give my find my password and it showed all that stuff and I finally got out of it and The only other person that knows someone that met me the next day and they wonder why looks so off By parents don't know nobody knows that stories. So yeah, I'm on our convict in Spain. Okay. Well, this is only a couple listeners. So fire nation keep it to yourself here like not a big deal. So. I WANNA start off on a little bit of a somber notes because as I shared fire nation during the introduction, we're talking about barshop way to millions but in many of us have dealt with some one in our lives that we love who dealt with some form of this but your Dad Ravi had stage four cancer. So talk to us about that and how that situation. Caused you to throw it all away. Awesome questions. So whole life was going to be a lawyer and that was that was the goal was law school was the number one priority, and in order to be a lawyer, you have to take what's known as a law school admission test and you had the really score highly on and if you WANNA go great law school which I did. And so I took a year off after graduating from college and I was about to start studying for this also emission tests in about three days. After I graduated I, got a call from my dad who lives in Atlanta Georgia. I was in Florida at the time and he told me news he was diagnosed with stage four lung cancer and like John Says, you know everyone here has experienced cancer somewhere the other, but it's like when it's yourself or someone as Close Your Dad, it's a whole different experience and kind of threw me. For a loop and so I ended up packing all my stuff up moving to Atlanta. Georgia, and for the next year I would wake up at four am workout until five. Then from five to eight, I'll be studying for this law school admission test than about eight to five I'll be doing Chemo and radiation with my dad every single day. Monday. Through Friday and then when I got home at about six, o'clock, I'd be studying until eleven midnight every night back again on a law school admission test. So it was quite a surreal experience. I'm really really blessed to say my dad's been about two years in remission. So just actually visited him in Savannah Georgia, two days ago I was just seeing him but what it really did open up for me was. How fragile life was I was kind of going down around that I think somebody else wanted me to go down and I read a really awesome book called the subtle not giving of an economy I was just like, okay I'm doing this for all the wrong reasons and I decided you know what I took the law school admission test spent eighteen years preparing for it. I actually scored in the top ten percent of test takers in the United States I got into my dream schools, top schools in the nation. and. Then I said you know what? I'M GONNA go work at a talion restaurant down the road and try to figure out this entrepreneurship

Beginning the test for this vaccine for this experimental immunization developed by modern along with the date with the National Institutes of Health. Savannah, Georgia, Speaking of Georgia was the first trial site to get up and running there going to be over a dozen across the country for the third phase here, according to Madonna. Now, what's gonna happen is volunteers that get the shot. They're not going to know if they're getting the rial vaccine or the placebo, the inert jab in the arm after two doses of the shot, Then the researchers will look and see which group experiences Mohr infections. As they continue running around doing their their normal things, and especially, they're going to be looking at areas where people are part of the trials, and these areas are experiencing the bumps. The increases. In Corona virus. Certainly Florida Georgia, the Carolinas. You've got the Sunbelt States. Texas, You've got Arizona, California.

And we're gonna have one vaccine that is going to be a stand out or we're gonna have multiple Mac vaccines from multiple companies that are going to have a high degree of efficacy. We shall see. But clearly we need a vaccine that works. And then, of course, if it does This would this is historic folks.

The Year Without a Summer

"The heat of summer is well and truly here in the Northern Hemisphere, the hot humid days just won't let up and living in new. York City I continue to be frustrated that central air conditioning is not as ubiquitous in homes and businesses, as it is in most parts of the southern United States where I grew up. Then, of course, it's always been substantially hotter in those southern states, although with climate change, the northeast is heating up more and more, but that does make me think sometimes. How the heck did people survive before? Joining especially in those very hot climates, farmers ALMANAC A few insights nothing to mind blowing people would take day trips to swing holes or up. To cooler weather, they kept windows and doors shut at midday to keep out hot air and delayed cooking or baking. Until the evening they ate refreshing. Cool treats and was available in homes, blue fans across blocks of ice, the biggest factor most likely however was it simply wasn't as hot as it is now at least in terms of extremes, quoting farmers, Almanac, the extra ordinarily hot summers that are commonplace today were virtually unheard of fifty to one hundred years ago in fact, seven of the top ten coolest, US summers on record occurred nineteen, hundred and nineteen fifty and quotes. There was one year however over two centuries ago now that it was a lot cooler. Eighteen Sixteen Aka the year without a summer quoting farmers. ALMANAC referred to by many names, including the poverty year and eighteen hundred and froze to death, the year eighteen sixteen was literally a year without a summer across much of the northern hemisphere throughout not only North America, but also northern Europe and parts of Asia in exceptionally cold summer, featuring killing frosts in July in August crippled food production crop failures in food shortages were. Were so widespread that rioting and looting became common in the United Kingdom and France on this side of the Atlantic. Many residents of New England and the Canadian Maritimes froze to death, starved, or suffered from severe malnutrition, as storms, bringing foot, or more of snow, hit hard during May and June. Many others from the region pulled up stakes and move to western New York in the Mid West where the cold was less severe. In fact, the year without a summer is now believed to have been one major catalyst in the westward expansion of the United States and quotes Nicole may have been less severe in the southern and Western us, but it was still highly unusual on July fourth eighteen sixteen. It was forty six degrees Fahrenheit in Savannah Georgia. For the record this year on July fourth and Savannah, it was ninety degrees. So. Why did this happen? It was due to one of the largest volcanic eruptions in recorded history Indonesia's Tamboura. The volcano erupted on April Fifth Eighteen fifteen, continuing to up for a week and killing nearly all of the twelve thousand residents of Tim, Bora as well as almost all plants in animal life on the island, quoting the Paris review, countless tons of volcanic. Volcanic ash circulated in the upper atmosphere for years after the events blocked out sunlight and lowering average surface temperatures globally in parts, of North, America Europe temperatures dropped by more than eighteen degrees. Fahrenheit there was snow in New England July and dark rain clouds swept over Europe throughout the summer months in Hungary reports of Brown snowfall, tainted by volcanic ash and quotes. Understandably many thought the world was ending that the sun was dying. It's really fascinating. Though is some of the cultural ripples that this massive event caused. You may be familiar with the story of how Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley was inspired to write Frankenstein as part of a spooky storytelling challenge when she percy shelley and Lord Byron and friends were holed up in a villa in Geneva. One stormy summer turns out. It was this dark, thunderous apocalyptic. Apocalyptic summer of eighteen sixteen. The crew had gone to Geneva, both to ride out the unusually rainy summer, but also to escape their various dramas in England, being stuck indoors for so much of their trip Lord. Byron challenged them all to write ghost stories to entertain one. Another Mary Shelley wrote Frankenstein which would set the stage for all of science fiction to come? Also among the Geneva Villa guests was Lord Byron's personal physician Dr John Polidori. Who wrote short story for the challenge called the vampire, and this story is often credited with the birth of the Modern Vampire Romance. But those genre defining publications aren't the only cultural institutions to come out of the summer last year of Eighteen, sixteen among the mini shortages across Europe was a crucial shortage of oats which led to the starvation and deaths of countless humans and livestock, including at least ten thousand horses, not counting how many were also slaughtered to save money or become dinner German? Baron Carl Dreyer's and inventor in student of mathematics started trying to design a man powered form of transportation, while historians agree that he was inspired by the weather based os shortage. He also saw a need for an alternative to horses as crucial for war. Quoting the Paris review his first designs for human powered transportation involved complex conveyor belt, driven four wheeled vehicles, but raises breakthrough came when he turned his thoughts to balance drawing on his experiences, skating on ice ponds drains, put his faith in the power momentum and front wheel, steering to keep a two wheel vehicle rate. This idea became his love, machine or running machine and quotes, and this running machine would become the modern day bicycle. All of this makes me think about how many things will change or be invented from this moment that we're living through. And of course there's a lot of things we're already seen, and we're likely to continue to see some big cultural shift, but like who, out there is writing the next genre defining novel that people will still be reading two centuries later. Who's inventing something that will be innovated on for decades before becoming a ubiquitous ordinary mode of transportation. Maybe won't be those types of things specifically, but there are surely ideas happening and things being created that we won't realize the impact of for decades

Atlanta - Savannah mayor hits back at Kemp for overriding local mask mandates: He 'does not give a damn about us'

"Words on Twitter from the mayor of Savannah, Georgia. It is officially official wrote Mayor Van Johnson last night. Governor Kemp does not give a damn about us. The mayor's tweet came shortly after Georgia Governor Brian Kemp signed an executive order banning local governments from requiring masks that put a finer point on an earlier executive order prohibiting cities and counties from taking any action that was more restrictive than what was ordered statewide. And so amid rising cases of Corona virus throughout Georgia, existing mask mandates, including the one in Savannah, are essentially void. Mayor Van Johnson joins us now Welcome to the program. Thank you so much. I appreciate the opportunity. Well, I'm sure you know. Governor Kemp has said he strongly encourages mass. He wears one in public. But, he says requiring them is impractical and unenforceable for local business owners. For example, he says, mandates are a bridge too far. How do you respond to that? I respond to it by following the science, um, is issue about public safety about public health, or is it about convenience? Right to the west of us all. The state of Alabama now mandates mask in South Carolina and in Florida, they live up to them in the palate ease to decide whether the mandate mask And even today, the White House when asked about a nationwide math quarter on the White House is leaving that decision up to localities. So again, I think for us we are in the fight for lots were trying to get past Cove in 19. It's going to take all of us firing on all cylinders, working together to be able to make this happen, and we know from the sides from the CDC, which is located in Atlanta. That wearing mask is a part of the three pronged approach to be able to slow down the spread of this virus. And you made mass mandatory in public spaces and commercial establishments there in Savannah on July 1st, you were the first in Georgia to do so. How hard has it been to enforce has not really been hard to enforce because Again. Our goal here was compliance, not enforcement. So we've given out over 1000 mask and anyone who wanted a mass before we will write a ticket for anyone. We would offer him a mask. And so our visitors, our citizens gratefully took a mask on and therefore no ticket was required. The goal of this again. It's 1/2 people to wear a mask and again we have with 15 million visitors come to our beautiful city every year. Some know some don't know again. Our role is to make sure we educate and make sure we provide a mass that they are a compliant. Governor Kim's office sent us a statement here at NPR calling your mask mandate illegal since it is more restrictive than what's mandated statewide. And they said there's no evidence you're taking action to enforce what is required statewide, including social distancing. They say you haven't stopped unlawful gatherings in your city, for instance, How do you respond to that? Hey, I think again where we're really focused on the wrong things. Um, The reality is that science is very, very clear. We're all doing the best we can during these very hard type again. Social distancing per his order is filled with 50 people. I believe and again, people are out. Things are open and people are gathering. Um and begin our ability to enforce. It is limited because these unfunded mandates from the state level the government could put order out there. But he's not giving us a resource is to help us to enforce those orders. So again, we're doing the best that we can again. This is really about the wearing of mask. This is about being able to keep people safe decides has been absolutely clear. On July 2nd government, Kemp said himself that he was not going to stand in the way ofthe Savannah's mandatory mass corner. Yet here we are two weeks later, and he's issuing something specifically and the only one in the country. That specifically, um denies cities and counties the ability to be able to take care of their citizens. And to me that's unacceptable and we're almost out of time. But quickly. What now for Savannah, will you fight the ban on mask mandates? And in the meantime, what are you telling residents of your city? Well for us. There's nothing to fight a CZ. Where could we were concerned of Savannah's mass mandate is still in effect. We still have legal standing. We believe the government does not have the authority. Um And so therefore we continued to enforce it will enforce our current mask order. Even if that brings you head to head with the governor. Again, the governor do would he have to do? We will do what it takes, and we believe we have not only legal standing, but we have the science behind us to Dolly demonstrate that an emergent condition exists in Havana in Georgia. I'm going to stop you there. But thanks so much. That's Mayor Van Johnson of Savannah, Georgia. Thank you. And since we spoke with Mayor Johnson NPR has learned that Georgia Governor Brian Kemp has filed a lawsuit against Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance bottoms to block her city's mask wearing requirement.

"Speaking at uh at down in savannah georgia and a a gynecologist a and a professor gynecology at the medical college georgia i told me how she says seeing so many young women now uh who say you know i've i've never experienced an or chasm is there something wrong with me something wrong down below and she does all the things that gynocologist would do uh ultrasound and all and in every case she told me the woman's totally normal yes at the promise the men yeah they have no idea how to interact with woman they've come to regard a women as aides to masturbation essentially uh and the irony of this permissive era in which we push girls and boys to be sexual before their time is that they have no idea how to do it right rushing things doesn't make it better makes it worse so they really lose out on healthy sexual intimacy when they're older and you know i think about the development of a healthy sexual identity and i think that you know one of the things you know parents tend to forget an even physicians to an and particularly progressives in our culture is at the sexual identity is complicated and it takes time to develop you know we're fed this well if you have feelings for this person or that person that defines who you are sexually was not true because you're sexually daddy is very complex and it takes years to develop it's not a simple issue and to really what you're saying is when we sexualizing girls at a very young age and i think this happens with boys to but a little bit differently we really robbed them of that healthy sexual identity that the development we robbed them of the development of their healthy sexual identity but what you're saying to is we robbed them of a healthy sex life later on in life because it is just mechanical.
