"Know, I'm just wondering if this City council would actually do something actually do some action instead of just a lot of talk on the homeless issue. Would we be dealing with this problem right now? Where a man is threatening to jump from a bridge? That's got the US one of the three shutdown. Would we be dealing with that? My am I wrong to guess that it's a homeless person? I know. See that you do what I do, because that's automatically where my mind goes as well and it's. Unfortunately that really does turn out to be the case. The guy needs help are the AL needs help. We don't know the details, but apparently it's a distraught individual. My God. Always My gut tells me it's a homeless person. Yes, and I may be wrong on that. I apologize. No, it's it's It's natural to think that because that's that's the reality here in town, and plus, he's you know, get used to it. Here She is close. Maybe close. How long is this? Where they live? How long? I mean, how many hours design is one of the three had to be shut down? Well, I guess until they talked this per I assume they're trying to talk somebody down, so I I obviously until that's done, yeah, so They have got to be patient here something I mean, you know, usually, you know, I'm sure the city has a relationship already with this person. Yeah. You know what I mean? Whether it's AH, routinely dealing with the police are routinely dealing with mental health care called calls that that's very typical. Then again, not trying to just stereo top here was a homeless person that was shot last week sitting on that park bench. Yeah, and that's an at the bus station and weaken South Austin. We both kind of that's where our head went immediately and that we were in between. And typically, you know, we'll hear about someone getting someone getting hit by a car trying to call across 35. Typically, it's going to be a homeless person. That's the ugly reality. At one point where Boston go to demand that the City Council actually make some improvement, where the real signs of visible improvement on this issue for the life of me I will never, ever understand how they thought. That if we let these homeless people come out from the woods come out from Deep under the underpass is and wherever else they're they're camping and living that their situation would be will be better. I don't know what they're thinking was you and I have a different opinion on that. I don't want to go camping in the woods either. Well, I don't want anybody sleep into the voice, especially those suffering from mental illness and things like that. But, Todd, I'm sorry. I don't know how that situation was any worse than then what they're doing now, How is being under an underpass now or sleeping on a. You know, a median on on a mate. The road. How's that a better situation? I don't understand it. I not. It's a It's a worse situation. Actually, they thought they were being more humane that it was more humane treatment. Well, what we say all that part man sure that that bus stop last week. Ah, and what we're dealing with this morning. Get used to it. This is Austin because river well, as a matter of fact, Don. It was almost a year ago to date that the mayor took that trip to skid row to Portland to turn it, you know, to learn how they're doing things out there when it comes to homeless is San Francisco. Plenty years. L A think about that Ah, year ago from that trip, the mayor, What has he brought back? I think what he a problem has gotten worse. More people are dying that are homeless. More people are being victimized by the homeless in the trash. The capacity of trash is just going through the roof. Well, you know, Thank you. Mayor. Yeah, that's that's the results of his trip a year ago. No, I've lived here all my life in the city has more litter now than it ever ever has. It's just extraordinary to me and my sure I'm focused on it, but it's still dispose me away. And you would know. I remember the headline of him going out there. The purposes are recall was I want to go out there and see what's not working. Well, what he did without there to see what's not working out. And he brought those practices back. Let's squeeze in Blair checking in from Wells Branch this morning. Hey, Blair, Blair. Good morning. We're good having made you do what? I just dropped my kids off at the bus stop and, ah! They just got back into school. Wow, Esso, Here you are. You're now on your way to get you a pumpkin spice latte too. No doubt about it. What? Time's yoga?

"A well known Alabama author has died in the news at six. He's ready. A 1055 Wkrc Congressional district in Texas, which is basically San Antone Austin. Hill Country area, and I gotta tell you I know there's been a lot of folks moving in trying to California or Texas. I am surprised that a Democrat can challenge in this district. Because you would have thought that this was a Republican. A district is you could find. I guess that's changing. Well. It's the 21st Congressional district, which stretches from downtown on the North San Antonio fortune. He's on all the hill country. It is Greenlee conservatives right most district but it has a growing part of Austin, Texas, downtown and South Austin. This is the key Boston were dark, and there was the blueberry in the tomato soup as governor Perry for two. But it's growing the blue. They're getting bigger, so it's now making this district more competitive. We believe we can win. But we went on Lee with support and phone calls and door knocking and dollars, and I appreciate all the support. There's so many great donors out there. They'd give me five bucks. 100 bucks chip point dot com and I appreciate that. But we'll beat them if we outwork him. But let's just be clear. It is winnable by the Democrats because of how much Austin has grown, so we've got to get our message out there. We've got a bunch of ads up. You would love my first ad. I'm not sure if you've seen it where I have seen it where you were in the ball cap with a boy. Yeah, That's right, great, And we're talking to you because we're talking about not playing the game, and that's that's what I ran to do what I said. I would need to come to D C and fight for the people I represent not play the game to Washington. Not coming. You look, I'll call out Republicans. I'll call out. The president are calling out call out Republicans in Texas, the governor and others, But I'll also work with Democrats. If they'll work with me to pass, for example. Ppb Flexibility Act to help business to survive all of these nonsensical locked down, so that's what I want to tell people. I'm not a game player and I call it like I see it and and and, frankly, people across the spectrum have thanked me for that when I go back home. But how much will that matter? I mean, we're going to be in a race where folks we're going to show up to vote for or against Donald Trump. Nobody's actually for Joe Biden. And my concern is that the Democrats will show up to vote Democrat Without regard to. Here's a guy in Chip Roy. Who? Ah, got the deal passed for PPP that saved a lot of businesses. I mean, do you think that the district businesses will remember that? Well, I hope so. I've had a lot of great meetings. A lot of the restaurants like music venues hotel that sector and they're so thankful. And, you know, I'm working hard this week next week trying to stop Nancy Pelosi continued to politicize all this, and she won't bring these bills to a vote. She won't do her job. But here's the thing and I, I and I'm talking about businesses and so forth. And, yes, we're gonna rise or fall a lot on how well the president doesn't. Here's the one thing that I think is key. This election is about standing up for America, Yes or no? Do you stand up for America? Our founding our founding principles. Today's Constitution Day. Do you stand up with the veterans who have fought and died to protect this country to protect theoretical open, importantly, Do you stand up with law enforcement? Do you stand up for the 43 police officers? I said on the floor of the House representatives last night and the night before giving a speech about the 43 officers murdered in the line of duty. Are you going to do that? My opponent is not Joe Biden is not They're running to the shadows. They want to side with BLM antifa theywant to side with mob rule. They don't want to step up and stand alongside our law enforcement officers. My grandfather who is the chief police of Sweetwater, Texas, like great great grandfather, who was a Texas ranger. I was in the U. S attorney's office prosecuting bad guys. I'm proud of that. We shouldn't put bad guys in jail. Yes, we should have a conversation about qualified immunity and making sure that we don't have court created rules that, you know, make people be in jail. Who shouldn't be you and I both agree with that because we love liberty. But we want back guys to be in jail. We want our cops to be safe. We don't want long Listen on the streets, and Democrats are siding with lawlessness and mob rule instead of siding with law enforcement, and I'm going to have none of it. Shit. Roy is our guest. He is Thie congressman in the 21st Congressional District, which is set in tone. Austin Hill Country area. You know, I always ask Congressman and congressional candidates what the specific issues are in that district that are not the typical issues across the country, their specific to their whether it's the coal industry or sugar cane or What is that? What are you seeing in that district that you think is amplified more there than in the rest of the country? Well, it's going to be a little bit of reflection everybody, but there is a specific answer. In general. They're concerned about getting our jobs back General. They're concerned about getting through the virus. In general. They're concerned about love mobs and protecting our streets and in general, they're very concerned about securing the border. The western side of my district's about 90 miles from Laurie. Oh, so immigration border security and getting that right is very important meeting back to cartels. I hear that everywhere, but ultimately, I've got a bunch and Michael even your experiences off radio. You'll appreciate this, but I've got so many of the live music venues got Lucan Box. I've got the broken spoke of Green Hall. I've got all these dance halls a bunch of the bars stumps in downtown Austin. The folks in the whole country, the winery's vineyards, breweries, the distilleries. All of that stuff. They've been getting hammered by this over the top. Shut down, and that's what I hear Everywhere is open up. Do it safely. Pretty my dad 77, Michael. I had polio. He survived polio pandemic, but we didn't see him from Christmas to July 4th or my 71 year old mom. We took care of them, but we gotta open up. We got to get down. You're a cancer survivor. I mean, you're at a greater risk than other folks. Well, the thing is is having gone through cancer. You've seen it right? And you know the lights or the living and that we don't want to have people have suicides and mental health problems or not get cancer screenings or not get the help they need or not. Which is happening? Yeah, you're exactly right, which is happening. And that's what people are concerned about is getting open, getting her life back, do it safely. But let's get busy get busy living. That's what I hear everywhere, secure border, strong economy and get busy living and keep our streets safe and Democrats on the wrong side of every one of those issues. What are the rumors in D. C of things. Nancy Pelosi is going to try between now and election Day to turn folks against Republicans and in favor of Democrats. Although she continued to try to pay politics by jamming up votes who would actually make a difference in people's lives? So they, you know, the president can't get a success. She refuses to bring up a bipartisan bill to extend the PPP another few months to help these businesses survive. She refuses to have any kind of support the law enforcement on the floor of the House of Representatives. I was on the floor, showing those 43 who have been killed with a big chart said. Where's the speaker? Where is she? Why don't we hear what we were doing our job? Cause she doesn't want to give any political victories. Let me give you an example of that When I passed that PPP bill in June Dean Phillips,.

Andrea DeLong-Amaya, Women Working in the World of Plants

"We continue cultivating places. Women's history month interviews. Were joined this week by Andrea Delong Amaya director of horticulture for the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center at the University of Texas. At Austin it is also the botanic garden for the State of Texas Andrea has been on staff for over twenty years and has more than thirty years of experience in horticulture. She Guides fifteen staff members in the design and management of nine acres of Native Plant Gardens. Two hundred and seventy five acres of natural areas and in native plant nursery. She teaches classes in native plant horticulture and writes and presents on her passion for the field widely. She spoke with US late. Last autumn to share more about the history and work of the centre including it. Being the legacy of another extraordinary woman ladybird Johnson Andrea shares. Her own enthusiasm for this field of work. Welcome Andrea Hi. How you doing? I'm great how are you wonderful? I'd love for you to start by describing describe the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center as visually as you can for listeners. Who may not have been there. And then we'll talk a little bit about your specific work there Andrea Sherr so we are in a South Austin and in the middle of Texas. We're in a part of the state that we refer to as Texas El country or the Edwards Plateau which is a beautiful beautiful part of the state. Of course Texans will say every part of the state is beautiful but I WANNA say text. The central Texas area is particularly beautiful especially in the spring were really renowned for having excellent wildflower displays including the Texas blue on it which occurs all over the state but the central Texas areas particularly flora for us in the spring. And so we are like I said in Austin and the site that were on is a public garden where about two hundred and eighty five acres. I think we actually added a little bit more In the last year or so and it's a public garden where we feature plants that are native to the state of Texas. That's the site now. The organization is bigger than that But the gardens here. We're demonstrating hell different. Native plants can be used in different kinds of landscapes different kinds of styles. We have collections of plants. From different parts of the State we are the Botanic Garden Texas. So we're trying to increase our collections to represent other parts of the state as well as the central Texas area so we have about nine acres of cultivated gardens and then we have a sixteen Acre Texas Arboretum of trees So those are the horticultural areas in then. We have natural areas in The other parts of the the property And that the natural areas also include some research areas. We have some Areas where we're doing Land Management prescribed fire treatments and different kinds of land-management to see how that influences the vegetation. Yeah we can talk more about that. If you're if you like definitely definitely I will i. I would love to get into some of the specifics of each of those areas you just described but before we get there. Describe your your your job there what it entails and may be the trajectory of your twenty years there. Andrea. Yeah well. I started as a gardener appropriately and really enjoy working outside. I mean I've always been interested in being outdoors and that goes way back to my childhood is probably most people who have an affinity for the natural world That usually starts childhood so I grew up doing things outdoors with my parents particularly with my dad. We'd go camping or canoeing. And I remember having a field guide of of wildflowers weeds that surrounded our area where we lived and that was great. Fun everything from astronomy to birds and lizards and insects. Just everything is so interesting And I just find that the more I learn about things the more I'm fascinated and in awe of the natural world so that's just started early but it's just been a long a lifelong interest in learning more and observing more. I mean I laugh. We have a big picture window at our dining room table. And that's our TV. We don't have an actual electronics of the Inter House. It's overlooking a garden and pond and we just sit there and watch the animal antics and what's blooming and it's great fun and it's a nice way to slow down in our fast paced world That's a that's a big part of what I think. Nature does for me and for a lot of people So you started as a gardener. What year was that Andrea and then tell us about the progression of your rules at the Center Which clearly you progressed in because of your deepening curiosity and ever expanding knowledge base. Yes so I started in December of nine hundred ninety eight and Worked as a gardener I've guarded in most of the areas that we have in Under cultivation over the years and at some point we had Position of gardens manager was available so I moved into that and then I don't know maybe fifteen years ago I transitioned into the direct report culture and Unfortunately that means a little bit less guarding than I used to do. But it also gets me in a higher level of designing decision making which is very exciting and allows me to have more influence over some of the bigger picture things that are happening And then overseeing the natural areas arboretum and the nurseries also been pretty pretty fun and adds different interest to what what I'm looking at. Yeah so talk about Before we get into the specifics of some of the programmatic areas and display areas there and then the research give listeners. A history of the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center when it started what it's original mission in scope was of course the wonderful woman for whom it is named and by whom it was founded in its original iteration and So that that people have an understanding of just how much bigger is then. A Garden appreciating wildflowers. Because that is a fabulous mission but it's it is much bigger than that so we're very blessed to have had the visionary Labor Johnson as founder. She founded the wildflower center. Initially as the wildflower research center. The National Welfare Research Center and that was an endeavor that she took on with her friend and actress. Helen Hayes which a lot of people don't remember that part of of the history but it's Kinda Funny Mrs Johnson didn't feel like she had enough name. Recognition Systems of Helen Hayes. And so her mission right from the beginning was to really try to understand an unlocked the secrets of wildfires in native plants and understand how they grow and that was the original research. The the wildflower center did at that time and so that was a nineteen eighty two so the organization started back. Then we moved to our current site as a public garden Before it was more just a research site with some portables but it didn't really have botanical garden kind of exhibits. Someone moved to Our current site in one thousand nine hundred ninety five that was really a big focus of making the space Amenable to guests and having exhibits that people can interact with and having educational programming and really elaborating on that when she first started it. Why we'll just remind listeners? She was of course the first lady of the United States and she Had A as firstly. She had some remarkable initiatives to beautify. I think was the word that was used then. roads and highways across the country and she was taken by the wildflower diversity there in her home state for good reason. Because it's a pretty remarkable native flora. Will you talk a little bit about that? And and why people thought this was not just a pretty project but was worthy of deep research. Even at that time so yeah. Mrs Johnson grew up in a rural setting and without siblings so she was a long time so her best friend is. A child was outside Just the outdoors and I think that was what what instilled upon in her the scrape passion for the for the natural world and then as she became first lady She really had a great influence on President Johnson in terms of Passing legislation one of the things he's known for is the beautification. Act The highway beautification. Act and getting billboards off of the roadsides and cleaning up roadsides and planting wildflowers and the way I understand it you know we talk about it is being beautification and she knew at the time. She was very savvy that at the time. She knew that that was a word that would engage people. The public secretly I. I've heard that she felt like that was actually kind of a word and that it is she. I think she understood. It was deeper than just beautification was away to connect people with the idea that she

"In south Austin they have received similar code violations the city's website says even if you bought that home with the garage already converted it's still your responsibility get a permit well we got homeless folks on the streets again violate the law and set up a home under a bridge or in a park or in the front of a business even pull up in front of that business yeah I get this guy he bought a home and fifty years ago and now he's facing fines of two thousand dollars a day yeah exactly that's ridiculous whatever that whatever the actual specific issues are but it is ridiculous our our code inspectors at that board right now do they just not have anything else to do well they're doing their job you would think they're just doing their job I'm not mad at the coded for yeah they're just doing their job that they were hired to do making thing that was in the overall scheme of things it just seems kind of odd what also seems like those issues would have been brought up at the time of of sale of the house when he purchased the house that that would have to be addressed actually before the house was even soul yeah if they really want this man to do is Celis house is the enemy of the people he lives in a single family home and that is something the city councils already said single family homes are the problem so is a they occupy too much George would rather have a four plex on that property is what the city says they're clearing the way for that with the the re write of code next yeah that I've actually heard the Greco sars in meeting say single family homes or problem it's interesting to think that we could this be the future of code inspector showing up at our home pointing out things that that are going to be very expensive for me to take care of and it might be just cheaper for me to go ahead and sell the house I mean if the house is yeah I mean I think that's what it is because we think about if the if that garage is not not up to code and if he has to make it up to code yes to hire somebody to make it out code yeah which you know with all these new culture yes what grab bars in there you gonna have low thresholds things like that the wheel chair store I like that in the future he may not be able to afford to fix at night that that's in that that is not out of the realm of possibility at all that the he will possibly have to sell the home that is absolute a lot of people do sell their homes for that very reason you know maybe they had a whole that might not be code related but I know some people that that have sold their homes for poor is like yeah we've been in this house twenty years things are start to go wrong you know I have to replace that replace that right you know what we're just going to sell it be better for answers yeah let's get out here yeah exactly yeah yeah reopened to re era you know that is from you know that a city councilman right I'm not quite sure what district he is in I think he thinks his his home he had all kinds of additions to it and didn't get permits over the years and the city crack down on him I'm not sure if you got if you got all that fixed in time or not yeah but he was on the city council just for living in a living in the home full code violations I mean I don't have to tell people just because you own a home doesn't mean that you can necessarily afford to fill exit one major things happened yes if if you got a Cup code violation that involves apparently an entire building I don't know what the specific charges detached garage a detached garage I lived at home I used to with the detached garage and you know what if a code inspectors saw that thing in there that we had yeah eight no way that any aspect of that what a passcode low sketchy law well we had a washing machine that empty if you doubt the backyard what was wrong with that was old school that's old school yeah yeah just empties out the backyard that's all that was old school gray water yeah there it we could have been confronted with the same thing so it's this is to me this is this is kind of they're going after low hanging fruit here yeah I think so yeah anyway speaking of homes this is from the Austin board of realtors the Austin metro set another record for home sales of twenty nineteen finishing the year with thirty three thousand eighty four homes sold in that intersects amazing also at a time when again they don't want us living in single family homes right isn't that our city let me not people ought to talk about the affordability issue it sounds like it's affordable so it listen somebody's mind is all that's the thing that's in the in that that's that's what what our mayor talks about we've got to make the city more affordable which are just words he saying because he there's no that made no he doesn't there's really no motivation to do that is there because everything's going incredibly well other than our homeless issue here in this town the economy's going crazy home buildings going crazy home sales are going crazy what would the motivation be to make the city more affordable yeah it's apparently for thousands and thousands of people it's quite a force you're listening to

"South Austin, the price tag will not exceed eight point six million dollars. Eleven twelve west Ben white boulevard is the location. That's just across been wide boulevard from the Saint David south Austin hospital complex, well that fulfills one of their requirements. They wanted it close to medical facilities. They also wanted it close to public transportation. I would think that there's plenty of that in that area. Yes. Yes. And the city says this will not be like the arch downtown. This will be different concept think of the arches more of a situation where people get a room or a bed for a night. And then the next night, there's a lot of turnover you may have a different group of people in there. This is kind of a more long term type of housing, so they get counseling help from people and then move on to more permanent housing. And they say there won't be any loitering allowed around this center, and it should be up and running by the end of this year at that current office building, which was built in one thousand nine hundred eighty two right there on Ben white boulevard. Yeah, they're looking to let it house about one hundred beds, which, again, is Mark just said, would be more of a long term thing instead of just one night or two nights or we have a guest with us to talk about this. He is a pastor in south Austin. Who is the pastor of sunrise community church, right there at Manchester? Just south of Ben white Mark kill blink is with us on the Mark and Melinda show, pastor, good morning. How you doing today? Good morning, Mark. Hey doing just fine. You are involved in this issue. In south Austin, what do you think about this concept that the city is planning to roll out right there on Ben white boulevard, a new homeless center? Yeah. I think it's a good move from broad scheme as the as the city's homeless population has grown, certainly we've outgrown our capacity, for shelter amongst all the different places that can't shelter people in the city, this doesn't really get us anywhere close to a total sheltering solution. In fact, it will make moves incrementally because we're also at the same time reducing the number of beds that the arch downtown, but I think keeping it as a housing has a housing focus. Shelter is a good move trying to bring integration into the way that, that homeless treated is a good move. But, but I think there's still, you know, probably there's probably not going to be more than a drop in the bucket for most people who, who have issues with homelessness, either from humanitarian direction, or just from not wanting to see them around. Yeah. We saw the thousand seventeen data showed about seventy five hundred individuals temporarily. Homeless throughout that year. And then you think that this is only going to house a hundred individuals. You're right. It is just a drop in the bucket. Yeah. When you think about the cost per person of what that's going to cost the city, two houses hundred people you start to really get picture of, how difficult of a crisis, we're looking at, and I think it points to the fact that we need a more comprehensive solution from the top, that's, that's more that it's more than just a solution for hundred people, but we need something that's much more integrated the citywide and, and robust than than what we currently have, or even what's being proposed some of the camps that now exist under the overpasses on been wide and other locations have been drawing, more and more. Attention, have you visited some of those camps and talked with people who were living there? Yeah. Absolutely. We do a lot of work all over the city. But this is our primary area. And so, yeah, we know most of the folks that are down there, some of those folks are people that, are, you know, trying really hard to get together and they're very short term. There's other people that have been there for a very long period of time and, and some of them who wants to get services and some of them who just kind of wanna stay where they are. And I think it's not clear from this proposal is how people are going to get selected for this. So I, I think it would be presumptuous to say that, that this particular shelter will help reduce the number of people in this particular area. It'll be interesting to see how much in criteria works. We're talking live with pastor Mark hillbilly of the sunrise community church about to the city of Austin, which is on its way to buying. What is now an office building on Ben white boulevard and converting that into a shelter for the homeless in Southall's Austin, they hope to have that finish by. The end of this year. So you have met people who are homeless now and they've indicated they would probably move into some kind of his civility were to be available. You know, I think the majority of homeless people would move into a facility as long as it worked out for them. I think there's multiple issues with the shelters that currently the especially with the arch one is that obviously there's not enough room for everybody. But the other issue is that because of the kind of crowd that it attracts anytime you've got shelter. You've got hangers-on m people who kind of move with the network that you've also got a lot of drug traffic from people who are trying to take advantage of, of people who are in that situation. And you've got also a lot of other peripheral things that are part of part of being being part of a homeless community coming out of a place where you've been in trauma, situation, which was homelessness is. And when you're coming out of that, I think there's a lot of issues that not only causes for, for residents, but also called issues for other homeless people. And so a lot of the reason that people are in the periphery of the city is. Because they don't want to deal with the trappings of the downtown homeless population, whether it's because of violence or drug use, or whatever that that's happening downtown for them. They would rather be more industrious and be out in a in an area where it's less populated in the and they have better access to resources well, in this says that they're going to try to have no camping or congregating outside, you have any idea how they would go about implementing that to make sure that this doesn't become another arch situation. Yeah. I think I think the, the logic that they would probably say to that same logic. They're using to kind of redo the arch as, as we're speaking. The change at the arches as we are going to be that they're only going to be serving people who are staying inside. And the theory is that if you stopped using your facility and shelter and day resource center than the day resource center crowd, people were kind of, you know, leave and the theory here would be that there's never going to be at the resource center as part of this operator day, resource centers are oftentimes, the places where you see congregation for people who are coming in just for daily services. And so if you can keep people in five acidity, great, one of the reality is when you're working with people who are who are in the situation, or people who are coming into recovery as you a lot of people who smoke and so no matter what your shelter is, if you don't have a place to kind of let people outside that the smoke and kind of move around the city, I think you'll. I think it'll, it'll not work, and so they're probably going to have to create a situation where people can move around people can go outside and smoke, and that's probably where you're gonna have your greatest opportunity for, for them, interacting with a with a kind of a network of people outside of the shelter and whether or not, they can keep security at that places is kind of, you know, a question that remains to be answered. All right. So pastor, it sounds as though you see this as a small, but overall very positive step in dealing with this issue here in Austin. Do I think it's a good thing. I think it's probably moving in the right direction. Anytime you can integrate all the different pieces that people need to get off the streets. That's the best solution because you treat the whole person and not just one aspect of their of the situation. But again, it's, it's a very small part of, of what is needed in Austin, which is a comprehensive solution that provides integrated care to homeless, and also addresses, the housing crisis that actually underlies, the whole homeless crisis that we're doing. All right, pastor, thank you so much. We appreciate your joining us. And we may touch back with you later on for an update on this. Thank you so much. Thank you guys. Have a great that. All right. You too. That's pastor. Mark hill. Blink. He's the pastor of sunrise community church in south Austin on Manchester just south of Ben white boulevard. The council is scheduled to vote this Thursday to approve the money, eight point six million dollars to buy what is now a commercial office building at eleven twelve west Ben white boulevard and turn that into a center for the homeless. Let's talk about that. Let's talk about the money here for a second eight point six million to buy, the Bill the building, and then they're also saying it maybe cost about two point three million annually, just to maintain it. And then you talk about it's only going to house a hundred. When we have about seventy five hundred on the streets. Yes. I think a lot of people would go. That's a lot of money for one hundred people that's barely going to make a dent. Granted I you gotta start somewhere, right? Yeah. So, so it's a good start. But again when you look at the money there, you're talking about over ten million dollars right up here front first year and for the money for one hundred individuals. Big number. I grant you that it is a big number the appraisal district of values that building right now at roughly three million dollars, so they maybe they won't spend the whole eight point six million to get it. But or they might say, but it's our city council. And they showed in so that they can ensure they haven't this, and the, the number they're using for the annual cost to keep it running does sound high as well. A two point six million dollars a year just for operation and maintenance that sounds high to me. You're thinking about one hundred individuals. Yes, you do the math that, that is quite a bit of money per person. However, I am willing to say, let's give it a try because we have a rapidly growing issue in south Austin with these camps under the overpasses, and they do need to take action. Some of these people want to get off the streets. They would like to have a place to go. So I'm willing to give the city, the nod to try something go forward and see if this is a positive step for south Austin. I don't mind them going forward. I just wished when you're looking at this type of amount of money that it was going to help more individuals. It was going to put more of a dent more like two fifty five hundred. I know the amount of space, you're talking within double triple. And so, so would probably. The cost. But I would like to see go even further if you're going to do something, let's dive in and do it and see if it gets the response that you're looking for. And if so then, you know you can move forward with other centers like this. You want him to go big five hundred thousand. Yeah. Vegas, john. They say all right. I think part of the equation is the, the city is feeling a sense of urgency. There've been a lot of complaints about these homeless camps. And people are saying, do something, and that, that's a legitimate plea for help from south Austin, so they take gypsy here and they're just trying to get something purchased and up and running remember, they were initially looking for vacant land, where they could set up some kind of a tent shelter camping shelter, and they said, no that that's just not going to be possible. So now they're saying let's build an existing by an existing building and converted. All right. Here are the numbers. We want to hear from you at five one two eight three six zero five ninety can call you can text us with your thoughts. Details are limited so far. We're sharing everything we know with you. Yeah. And I know people have a lot of questions, a, you know, one of those in, he addressed it a little.

And then people said, wait a minute. I wanna cut the cable, but I still need to get my football. Well, we seems to be the question that we've been getting a lot in my Email box. We've been answering on the side we've been getting calls here on the big show. So I thought we'd spend a little bit of time here between all of your great phone calls to talk about the best way to get football. Now when it comes time to talking football. I will admit that. I'm probably not the football expert that you had hoped that would be. Joining you don't be so hard on yourself. You've two favorite players marshawn Lynch. You were so happy when he came back to put some. Yeah. Okay. Who's the other guy? Cam Newton Cam Newton. Yes. You know, what I should remember that? Because it's it actually sounds like a country music singer. Here. We are Cam Newton with all the country hands by angst. Listen texts. He's a good football players. You pick too. Good player swatch. Okay. So when we talk about first of all we want to stream the NFL the big enchilada sure how many different options. Do we have too many? And that's a big problem. I was talking to my Mike about this a couple of days ago is that there's not one source to get everything that that's the problem it, really stinks and law. There is one source and its cable television, but that's not streaming. And if you're cutting the cord, there's even if you wanna pay money, even if you wanna cut your cable Bill down, you can't find one place that has everything the contracts right now. Or with FOX CBS NBC ESPN and the NFL network. That's five networks. Okay. So you're going to have to find a streaming service that has them all if you do get fined CBS and NBC on an antenna, then you will get a majority of the broadcast all the morning games on Sunday all the afternoon games. So let me back up because you're getting confused right now. Okay. So is there a place where you could go or you could figure out to say, okay? I like to cause a lot of people. Most people are are they only like certain teams. Sure. Okay. Maybe it was a team their hometown team or as a team that they grew up with Wright or college or whatever. So is there a place where you could say, I mean, we should invent this. If not where you can say, I like these teams these other teams that I follow and I watch. And then this is the service that I need to know because the way the NFL does it is regional broadcasting and national broadcast. So one game a week will be a national game. So sixty five to eighty percent of the country will get that one game. Okay. Then the other three games will be your regional games. So here in Phoenix as long as the cardinals were sold out. We would get the cardinals most likely through wait there. So there's the game has to be sold out before its broadcast locally within a hundred miles of the stadium. Wow. And if they're not Warren tries they are well dang being a cardinal's fan through the entire nineties. We had to become season ticket holders. We want to see the team play because they never sold out. And then once they moved hope where she bought tickets to moving wrinkle in time somebody has to watch it when when they moved to the new stadium, they sold out all the time. So that hasn't been a problem here. And they're thinking about getting rid of the blackout rules. They've lowered the percentage of south to call it a sell out. But still no the broadcast networks. Don't let you pick. And choose what game. So is this when a sell out his at eighty ninety percent eighty five percent of tickets sold? Okay. All right. So it's only because I interrupted just wanted some clarification. Okay. So so now, so we have you. So you have different regions you have national. And then you have different days of the week Thursday nights for the Thursday night games. And this is so confused. It's Thursday night's big games like Sunday. Or is it kind of like, yeah. We'll watch move products pretty bad on Thursday night. Tubby honest with you. All right. Those games will be broadcast on the NFL network for the first three weeks of the. Season then they will simulcast from week four on on FOX, which is an antenna and the NFL network also on Amazon. Oh, that's interesting. So if you're an Amazon prime member Amazon for video for free and the game will be on Amazon video at best Thursdays. Correct. Okay. Sunday night broadcast on television. So again over the air antenna for Sunday night football. And then Monday night is ESPN only. And so you have there's no way to get ESPN for free. Well, there's one way and I've been arguing with people whether it's free or not because I watch Monday night football my cellphone because I paid for my cell phone. No matter what. But since I'm a Verizon customer, the NFL app is on my phone. So that says this where you get the games. Correct. All primetime. Do you stream the game to your big TV? You cannot. Oh, wink, wink. So you're not the app does not allow chrome casting. But if you are in YouTube can hand in hand figure out a way to get it on your television. You can't but chrome casting or apple casting is not allowed on the NFL. But you've figured out a way. Sure is it difficult now it's just a couple of cables, Mirroring, Mirroring instead of casting. Oh, that's easy. Yeah. But they don't want to promote that. Well, we should not talk about that. That's why I'm not just bring it up. I didn't. I just I just was wondering, but that's the promises others. And I was talking about this that Amazon should I think will be the company that steps up and gets the contract everything. What about all these other companies like sling? I tried sling for awhile because they have the NFL red zone, which is basically all the day games that start in the morning and go to the afternoon before the Sunday night game. They go in and out. Go to all the games if the Steelers are. About to score a touchdown. They'll head to the Steelers game all but Minnesota's gonna score to they'll pop over there. Okay. And they'll seamlessly transition through all the games that is available through sling. So I thought I would give it a chance. And I mean, the quality is for me. Just wasn't there. I rather mirror. My phone. Are there any services where you can watch the game after the fact and pay for it not pay for it? No, okay. The NFL have this thing. Just locked up. You can buy the NFL pass on the NFL dot com. And I believe that's altered through NFL mobile the NFL app, but it's the day after you have to wait for two hours after the game happens. Don't go online. You can't go on social media, even before social media. There was a cardinals game. I taped like ten years ago. I went to a midnight movie that got out at two thirty in the morning as relieving the parking garage. Be attending goes off. How about that game? We lost the writers. I'm like, really? Clock in the morning getting so excited. Okay. So if you're a real football fan, you're gonna pay the money. I mean, how much is it going to cost you get your football? I mean, if you really I mean, I'm talking about like a bonafide football fan if you are in an apartment or in a place that does not allow you to have direct TV, then you can stream the NFL Sunday ticket which is four hundred dollars for the entire year. That will give you the entire year the entire season or the entire year some week one to week seventeen. Okay. The entire season because once the playoffs start direct TV doesn't have that contract. The playoffs are hot and other networks. Not easy. You really have to be a football fan. Yeah. Absolutely. Or you have to say, I'm cutting the cable, but I'm still going to have to come out of the pop my pockets, not going to be free. Now what happens what's happening with the Super Bowl because that's CBS gig. Correct. So the you you could always stream the Super Bowl, you could get it on an XBox or PlayStation, or any tablet or phone app. You could get the Super Bowl you had to sign up for an account and log in. But now you can just open up the app this year press play in the Super Bowl is going to be streamed live everywhere and were they playing it this year's Super Bowl. It's a good question. I forgot and who's in it. We don't know yet. If we knew that. Gutless Cavs waiting for you to answer. Like I have a pick though. I think it's going to be Atlanta who lost in week one. But I think it'd be Atlanta in Houston and in Houston. That's my that's my pick to nice. Where'd you break minds think alike? So it's is football growing. Or is it decreasing in favor with a low ratings are coming down. So the first kickoff game that we just had last week is one of the lowest opening season games when it comes to broadcast ratings. But does that count people were watching on sling people that are getting on the NFL app? No. So the broadcast numbers are down. But are the people who are taking in football down. I don't think so you just take an eight we're all just taking it in different ways because you know, the because there are a lot of fundamental shifts that are happening right now. Absolutely. But if you look at what happened is pass off season FOX just signed a five year contract to pick up Thursday night football and simulcast it they outbid other networks. So they Amazon and the NFL now we're all in it together. But FOX's producing everything, and they're paying to be able to have all of those rights who makes the most money in football, the NFL brand money. Okay. But I mean who what's the what's the team the team the most success Dallas Cowboys America's team most valuable brand then who makes who was the highest paid player highest paid players now Aaron Rodgers he's the quarterback of the Green Bay Packers. You just signed the richest contract in the history of football. I believe it's gonna average twenty eight and a half million dollars a year or what thrown a little football around. And he's going to get it in like three checks in the next like nine months. Wow. Okay. How do I be real estate broker to date him? And then who is the least paid the least paid would be veterans that have been the league three or four years, and they don't have a rookie contract or rookies drafted after the third round there in the four hundred thousand dollar range four hundred thousand dollars a year, you make two hundred jeeze if you're on the practice squad, which means you never dress on Sundays. You never play. You just are there on the practice. That's not a bad gig two hundred thousand dollars, and you don't get hurt and has a full year. There's only seventeen weeks. That's okay. I'd take it..
