Listen, the district name change debate rages on and now trustees are looking at changing the name of Sidney Lanier high school. Okay. Yeah. Much like the case of Ronald Reagan, high school board member says that linear students and staff members are overwhelmingly against the name change. Now, the board may vote for that change at the end of this month and estimates show that change in the name of that high school would cost about three hundred thousand dollars, you know, that sort of thing. And then what are you have once you do that? Well, I guess you have a non-racist named campuses. I guess that's their alternate goal. But it's changed. Absolutely. Nothing. Other than trying to race a piece of history, which is never good. Well, it gets a handful of people that want the name changes to vote for you. If you're a school board member, that's all it is is just pandering to old Austin Knight's want that named changed. That's all it is the kids don't care. The kids have no idea who the hell Sidney Lanier areas. I at all, I don't know. I just can't rewrite the history, man. A no you can't racing is something that did happen. It did it at the time that it all did happen. It's because it was the way it was then in what people believed in what they were fighting for or fighting against or whatever. And that is it like it or not those things are very important to the overall big picture because it's how we got to where we are today. And but when you. Here things like this. You wonder is this where we wanted to end up. Yeah. Yeah. I got you. All right. Good. I be anymore bag. Yeah. Going to update you on the sobriety center, commonly referred to as the drunk tank and Austin, well, it's celebrating its first six months of existence and during that time alone, they have actually they say helped more than one thousand patients just a little more than one thousand drunks taken there by the police we can do better than that never center is also gearing up for its first south by south west, which brings you know, literally one hundred thousand people plus to town lot of drinking going on. So they doubled their staff. They're getting ready for more people. Do we'll be apprehended for public intoxication now from September two thousand eighteen to February twenty nineteen the city of Austin and Travis county, they say because of the sobriety center saved taxpayers three hundred and thirty five thousand dollars in emergency medical services and law enforcement cost with more than one thousand diversions at the sobriety center. Now that's a little bit of misinformation from the press release of the sobriety center. Because it does cost one point seven million dollars a year just to operate. So they didn't say anything. Yeah. They haven't saved anything yet. Still got to pay for it. Now, when we divert one point seven million dollars worth of people from the police jails, and our hospitals, maybe we can talk about that the sobering center's executive director her name is Rhonda, Patrick, and we got a chance to talk to her about this six months of sobriety center. It's been busy as you might expect given Austin being quite the entertainment destination for folks we. Served over a thousand people as of this last weekend. And we continue to see, you know, our utilization steadily climbing, which is kind of expected for you know, new your first year out. We of some of the the cost estimates that were given to the to the city council to the Commissioner's court to really talk about why we needed a submarine center. Just from a cost perspective and remand those numbers again looking about at the numbers of folks that have been transported here via law enforcement and the number of folks have been treated via EMS broke that out. And so, you know, just based on the numbers that we use several years ago. We're looking at cost savings around three hundred thirty five thousand dollars today. Now, we asked her about any surprises in the first six months of the sobriety center. Who are we taking care of their at that facility? There was a lot of assumptions built in about who would be serving, you know, intoxicating kids from down off the, you know, college students at sixth street or persons experiencing homelessness, and and you know, a lot of potentially a lot of people out of account, and what we're really finding is that most. The majority of the people coming here are folks that live in our community and reside in our community. Their there. You know, a small percentage ten percent our students, probably twofold, why that's happening. A lot of there's probably a lot of missed opportunities. And then our persons experiencing homelessness is is really less than fifteen percent as well. And I again, I think that that's just a some potentially missed opportunity. So we were what we're coming to find is that we're not having a lot of visitors here, it's mostly people who live here reside here shelter here. And that, you know, we're not we're not we're missing some opportunities around students in some in person who are experiencing homelessness and how we can better serve down. Right. So they're looking for ways to actually expand and grow the sobriety center. So they can take care of more drunk college kids and more homeless people. They want wanna make it bigger. It's interesting that they're looking at they're not getting the amount of homeless that that we. Thought they would. But they see there's an opportunity. There is operatives. We can lurid. More customers. Interesting. Yeah. That's a it's an.
