"News app. Hey, thanks So much for being here, talked about this a little bit yesterday, and it's It's amazing to see what's happening yesterday. Kind of threw it out there. I like the political debate. I do. I love to argue in a fun way. Not in a in an angry way. And he gets contentious on social media sometimes, and you know, I get called out for it. By the bosses for jumping in a little bit too harsh. And I admit I get a little harsh on social media, sometimes. So we turned it around yesterday. We had a story yesterday about ST Mary's Food bank, and it's not just them. But the story was about ST Mary's and how they are thousands of Turkey short. For a couple of reasons and one of them being There are a lot more people in need this Thanksgiving and we've seen before. So I kind of threw it out there to the people that we just say that I disagree with on especially not just them, but the people on social media. Let's agree on one thing. We all can do something that here in our community, whether your person wins or my person wins or propositions or how it's working whether the president should stay the course. We're going to continue to argue. I'm not. I don't think we're going to agree on those things. But we all live in the same valley. We all love the place where we live. We all want to see people with full bellies on Thanksgiving. Let's jump in together, and sure enough, a bunch of people have reached out to ST Mary's and made donations, saying that they were listeners to the show, and I didn't do it. For that reason. There's nothing formal about this. I was just saying, Let's do something together. Just in the moment, and so many of you did it and yesterday, um Somebody donated Understand to me this morning, A donation from Twitter donated 400 bucks to ST Mary's provided 2800 meals. With his donation and it which it blew me away that we can disagree on so much, but we always confined common ground. And what a great thing that no matter where you are on the political aisle it we don't have the corner on charity. We don't have the corner corner on giving. So, um, you know, people say, and I don't agree with you about the election, but Great stuff. I can't thank you enough for jumping in with me for doing this. It was just a spur of the moment idea, So thank you. Thank you. Thank you Keep it up. If you can not just ST Mary's ST Vincent de Paul Circle the city Salvation Army. There are so many worthwhile organizations they're gonna overwhelm for Thanksgiving. Find one You love find one you trust do what you can when you can I say that because of this goofy story in front of me. I'm not a I'm not a big fan of celebrities anyway. Have some friends that are and they're great people, but the ones that just lived to be celebrities kind of hurt me sometimes. Mark Cuban, the owner of the Dallas Mavericks, the billionaire Was urging people to give money to food banks instead of giving money to the Georgia Senate runoff races. And John Legend. Got angry. John legend. The singer got angry because, he said in the long run, If the Democrats win that race, homeless people would be better off and I saw that story and I thought, you know, it's really funny that Someone can be so dug in politically. I'm not even go down the political argument of charity in one party or the other. But isn't it amazing that you've got a billionaire? That's encouraging people to give And you've got a multi millionaire that saying no, it should be for politics. At first, I was angry, and then I laughed. And then a part of me actually felt bad for this guy. If you are it and for any of us, and I gotta put myself and check a lot of times as well. If I am so emotionally invested in a political candidate or in a political issue, or in a political party, that it starts to affect my mood, and it starts to affect my outlook on life. Gotta get that in check. Um, there are so many examples. Off. What's more important, sometimes I am. Those examples when you start thinking about people that are seriously concerned about feeding their family for Thanksgiving. And How easy it is for us. To be able to just do something to ease that a little bit. For those people to someday get back on their feet, hopefully sooner rather than later. And have been touched by the charity of others that will then spend their lives giving back That somehow we allow politics or an issue or something to drive us to the point where we can't see anything outside of that issue. We see everything through the prism off that issue. Whatever that is. Race, gender, sexual orientation politics, whatever it is. You know, I go to a sporting event. I go to a football game. I love a season ticket holder with the Cardinals. I love the Cardinals. I love going to Cardinals games. If I am ever so devastated by a play or a loss that I get into a fistfight with an opposing player. I'm giving away my tickets. I'm never going to another game. I don't I don't understand it. We have an opportunity as a country like we did after 9 11. This cove in 19 thing has devastated so many people. It's not over yet. We have an opportunity to show who we are in a great way. And if you remember back in the day when, when Rudy Giuliani was making sense Rouge, Giuliani talked about 9 11 and said the worst of humanity was met by the best in humanity because of the outpouring of people that showed up in New York City tow work and to donate time and given up their vacations to feed workers at ground zero. It showed who we were. And you know, when I look on social media and people, I have no idea who they are. Personally, they don't know me either Accept what they hear on the radio, and we banter back and forth, sometimes a little bit vitriolic, sometimes a little upset..

"Being here Just a few minutes left in the show. I want to say a big thank you to a few people. You know, it's it's fun to banter on social media. I love it. I really do. I don't take it seriously. I stand my ground on my on my beliefs, and so do the other people. And it gets a little contentious. I mean, you know, we say things and make accusations and goof around. But I put a call out just because of the story about the people of ST Mary's Food Bank, and it's not a unique situation at ST Mary's, um that there's a big need this time of year. They're down thousands of turkeys for the needs. They're gonna have. Part of it is, you know, people are hurting right now, and part of it is they have a huge uptick in people that are in need. So what? I put the challenge out and I'm not doing anything formal. It's too hard to do something formal right now with covert 19, But we're going to bring somebody on next week from ST Mary's to talk about it and the reason why, and I told you I've got an affiliation a deep affiliation with ST Vincent de Paul. They work hand in hand with ST Mary's ST Mary's is a phenomenal place. Same attitude toward people that give they want to make sure they're good stewards of the donations that they get. I talked about circle the city, which works specifically with homeless people, and and medical needs down. It cast that campus for homeless people downtown. I've been moved to tears literally to tears. Seeing that people now in such a tough difficulty. Financial time are still giving. And it's like we feel blessed because we don't have as much as we thought. It was a little precarious, but thank God for what we do have and so people have been giving more. And so I just put it out there finding organization, Salvation Army ST Mary's ST Vincent de Paul Circle the city find an organization this time of year and do what you can. If you don't have a lot don't give a lot. But if you can give anything Please do and specifically a couple of people on social media that I've argued. We argue with we say not nice things to each other all in, you know the spirit of banter. It's nothing horrible, but we disagree. First ones to jump in and say I'm doing it and they did it. And so we matched up s. So it's 100 bucks for me, 100 bucks from him. Someone else sent me a text message and said, I'm doing it too. And so, um, it's nothing formal. It's not a formal movement. It's just a reminder to each other that you know we're pretty blessed that we live in a great country. We're watching this election. It's contentious and covert 19 and it gets contentious. But it's a time where we're able to put all of that aside for just a couple of minutes. It's It's kind of like when you're at a sporting event. That when they play the national anthem, I can stand next to a 40 Niners fan and in unison, pay tribute to our country, and then when it's over game on, we're back to the game, but we're still unified at the base at the core of who we are. We all live in the same town. We all live in the same valley. We all wanted to be the best it can be and think about how great it is for us to be in a position where we can help someone. It's the greatest feeling in the world to feel like you can help another human being. And for me, it's a blessing to be able to give If you've ever been in a position where you can't give or you've ever been in a position where you had to be the recipient of someone else's kindness, you thank God for those people when you're in need But when you're in the position to give, it feels so much better to realize I am in a blessed position where I can give to others. So I'm not telling you who to give to how much you to give. I'm asking you to think about it. And if you're in a position where you can give Find a way to do it. It was simple. For me. It was 30 seconds online to ST Mary's. I was, You know, I made $100 donation to pace for 700 meals, um, pretty remarkable on their website, so ST Vincent de Paul is another one that I can vouch for. That squeezes every penny out of every dollar you donate when they say that they feed, clothe house in hell they do. They are such a huge resource for medicine for dental work for clothing for off food to people in need all over the state of Arizona. They have been for years and years and years, and I got to tell you that it's that there's such a great resource, so whoever it is whatever organization you can, I hope you will. We're going to continue to debate. We're going to continue to disagree. This election in Arizona is not over yet. It's close. I mean, there's only what 22,000 votes I think left account. It's close to being over. And when it is it is, but until then, we're going to disagree. Covert 19 the pathway out We're going to disagree the next four years of a Biden administration. If it happens, we're going to Disagree like we did about the Trump administration. I'm not giving up because it's not over yet, And I still want to see if my guy can pull it out. I don't want there to be stunts. I don't want them to the illegalities. I don't want there. I wanted to be just over with in the fairest fashion when it is will all move forward, And I'm looking forward to the fight. And maybe maybe if we can kind of join hands, figuratively in something as simple as providing a Thanksgiving for a family who might not have it if we work together on that. Maybe we can drop the gloves a little bit. And maybe not. Fight is hard toward each other personally, as we do when we stand by ideals. I don't know. I just I do like the debate. I don't like the arguing in the fighting. I don't like the division. Maybe this is one pathway to we're not so divided. After all. Who knows? Maybe I'm too pie in the sky about the whole thing, But it really was. It was great today to just throw it out there and have people respond. It was moving, So thank you to those that did And hopefully you'll be able to find a way to jump in and help in the future. Um, before we get out the numbers today for covert 99 9% rate of infection or positive testing rate, which is good yesterday was 22% very scary to people thinking we were jumping back again to that super high level. Well, hopefully it's going to stay below 10%. Let's kind of lower this. As people are starting to learn to manage covert 19. I think more than anything else, management of the virus is going to be the pathway out, and I think that should be the next message. We start hearing from our leaders about managing covert 19. We heard from Dr Fauci saying. People aren't in favor of a shutdown. He thinks we can manage our way out of this. Especially with the vaccine right around the corner for.

"On our news, 92 3 FM and the news Thanks so much for being here it is. It's Mike Groom had show way. Appreciate you being with us homos problem in Arizona is growing and it we have grown in the city of Phoenix in homelessness in a while, and there are a lot of groups to do a great job. You've heard me talk about them before. Because other major cities it's seen a lot more in Phoenix. It's kind of in an area of downtown In 500. People sleep every night in sleeping bags, tents, makeshift tarp shelters on the streets around human services campus in south of downtown Phoenix. And that's cast. That's this campus. That's downtown. But what covert 19 has done is this homeless People used to be able to go into a respite centre during the day and get out of the heat. They can't because of covert 19. They had to stay outside in the shade. Sleeping conditions used to be. They were packed together well because of covert 19. They put up chains and they made it harder so that people would distance and so the homeless camps are now spread out in a bigger area. People are distanced more And the reason why I'm bringing this up is specifically about covert 19, but about the problem of homelessness that is about to come to us. And I think we're going to start seeing more and more people, unexpected people becoming homeless, at least for a short time because of what covert 19 has done to our economy. We have put a moratorium on evictions. But that's not going to last forever. And although some people be able to cut deals with landlords and get their jobs back and climb out of that hole, we understand statistically, there will be people. That right now have homes that will not in the future, And it's going to make this problem even worse. So the story that I get this from is from a part of downtown where the business is say, you know, we've been We have been apart of this forever and really, the city isn't doing a whole lot about it. I don't think that it's a municipal problem. Um And I don't think, um, I think it's done by the private sector in a better way. I've been down to cast I I've mentioned before I friend Marty. It circled the city and what they're doing The great work they do, Andi just it's it's all privately funded, I would say, mostly privately funded. And to see the different holes that they fill when it comes to homeless people is remarkable and they deserve our attention and our support. I've told this story before that I had a cousin who was my hero. When we were little kids. He was the older brother. I didn't have. We spent summers together and and we grew up together until I moved to Florida when I was very young when we stayed in touch. When his mother died When he was in high school, he went down the road of drugs and alcohol, and he drowned his sorrows that way and became homeless lived in Vegas, where my his oldest sister, My oldest cousin lived, and when I would go in visit, I would always find him. He always knew I was coming and we would hang out. And he looked like a typical homeless person, but not not to me. He was just my cousin. And That for me became the face of homelessness. My cousin died in a homeless camp in Vegas. Whether it was an overdose or a seizure. He died. And so when I see the face of a homeless person, I know there's a story and there are people that love them, and now my cousin was homeless by his own devices. He caused the problem. He didn't want to fix the problem. He wanted to stay on the streets. But there are many people out there that want and need the help that we can give them. We're going to see families on the street. We're going to see more and more people looking for shelter and they're not going to find it. This is not a problem. It's going to go. That's going to go away without the help of people like you and me. And if you think it doesn't affect you, it does And it will. And until someone in your life touches you that's homeless until someone you know is without a home. You may be human. It may not be a problem that moves you. But there are people out there in the private sector that are working very hard to solve parts of these problems. Then there's ways we can help the three things we offer. The world is money, talent in time, and those three things we have the different degrees at different times in our life. And if you're involved in a cause that you believe in, I think that's awesome. If you're looking for girl Group of people to get involved with these organisations, whether it's ST Vincent de Paul Circle the city they're giving masks to homeless people. When homeless people are Covad 19 positive. They're testing them. They're putting them places that are separated, whether their pods or sometimes these old hotels where they're giving them rooms so that the Koven 19 problem. Would spread like wildfire throughout the homeless community. These organizations are making sure that doesn't happen. They're getting some basic medical care. They give them hygiene kits so they can have the basics of toothbrushes and toothpaste and a mask. And there's a lot of work that's happening to make sure that society isn't spreading covert 19 through the homeless community and at the same time trying to fill their daily needs of just nourishment in water. And maybe cure the problem for those that are looking, and many of these groups are doing a great job off, making sure that they can get off the streets. Whatever their issues are, whether it's a money or a legal problem that keeps him from getting a driver's license, a transportation issue a drug issue or a mental health issue, helping these people overcome these basic problems and then getting them back. Into a home and back into the mainstream of society. That's something that I want to be a part of, But I bring it up because in the coming months when covert 19 is over in the moratorium on evictions end we're going to see more and more people face homelessness. And it's going to be people just like you and me. And we could help stave that problem off right now. If we get involved find an organization that's fighting it and get involved. Nancy Pelosi unloads on the media coming up after the next hour. We're going to talk about her unloading and what she said in wide. Trading wealth is in place for you and your retirement, and they got advice for you. If you've been separated from a job for whatever reason during covert 19, and you still have money with a former employer in there for a one care retirement account, get control of those dollars. You want to have control of those dollars because if they close or sell your money could be tied up for a long time without your control. And then trading wealth is going to help you stay on track for retirement. What's great about this? Is there going to help you make sure that you're navigating the good times. You're prepared for the times that we were unexpected, and when it's time for you to retire, you have.

"The mike groom head show Appreciate you being with us today. We're going to get Teo just after the top of the hour. We're going to talk about More anti police sentiment in our community that kind of make me shake my head and wonder what the world's going on. We're going to get to it in a moment. Let me remind you whether it's so you've heard us talk about partnering with the Venus Rescue mission. ST. Vincent de Paul ST Mary's Food Bank, is doing a big drive for water. Koven, 19 is impacted everyone and one of the things that people aren't very aware of is that with covert 19 the way it is and the homeless population there is a campus called Cast in downtown Phoenix. I talked about circle, the city and the other organizations. But what usually happens is they make room for homeless people indoors to congregate to get out of the heat during the hottest part of the day because of the distancing regulations and covert 19 there isn't a lot of shelter for homeless people, which means more of them are outside, so the need for water right now is bigger than it's ever been. So ST Mary's food bank is doing a drive they've got. They've got a location at 31st Avenue and Thomas just south of Thomas. They've got went out. Surprise. You've got ST Vincent de Paul Circle the city all of these organizations. That are already out there helping homeless people. If you think about it while you're out grocery shopping and you have the means to do it, grab an extra case of water, drop it off at one of these organizations and just help them hydrate the homeless people. It really is a simple way to help people keep people alive during these hottest days of the summer. Mom and it really This is something that really is going to save lives. So if you condemn it, please do it. Mountainside fitness failed to stay open. They challenge the governors and they went through the courts Court said. No, they've closed down. They are going toe, Tom Hatton, Hatton said. He's gonna pay his employees through the 27th because that is the day that this shutdown is expected to expire. Now, whether or not the governor carries that longer than July 27th. We don't know. But Theo's fitness and life time fitness were two other groups to other fitness clubs. Chains that were also opened for a short time asleep one or two of their location sighted. And then they closed down as well. EOS and Lifetime are saying they're working behind the scenes with the governor's office. Or at least that's what the story's air saying to come up with a plan where they may be able to reopen before the July 27th deadline. Now, that would be very interesting to me if they were able to pull this off because in speaking with Mr Hatton, and in a press conference that he had he had been trying to work with the governor's lawyers in just that capacity in finding a way to come up with new protocol that could keep the fitness industry open, give people a chance to work out. It's going to be 120 degrees. Steve and I were talking earlier this morning. It's only happened three times in Arizona, where they've recorded temperatures over 1 20 It happened back in the nineties early 1990. Then it happened twice in back to back days in 1995. I remember that because that's the year I moved here. That was my first Arizona's summer 1 2121 on those two days. I think it was actually two days in 1990 wasn't I thought one day and night if I thought it was night, two in 95 looking, but I think that was we set a record that that summer for days over 1 12 or something. It was my first Arizona summer. And I was working as an electrician's outside. It's almost impossible. I don't care if you get up in 4 a.m. It's going to be impossible for people to get outside, getting a run. Get in a workout or a hike and those that are trying. Even the seasoned veterans and hiking and other things are finding themselves physically unable to do this. So you're going to really need to find a way to do it Be creative, and so the fitness industry for people's mental well being, not just only our physical well being is going to be a necessary thing. There's gotta be a way to give people the ability to get back into the gym. And blow off some steam going toe workout in and it I think it's essential to your well being. And this isn't something frivolous to other people to the people that don't exercise regularly. I understand that I get it. But for the people for them, it is the physical release. It is the mental well being is the way they escape and what it does for your physical and emotional condition. It's already well documented of how good that is for people. There's got to be a way. Toe work in these industries and be able to open these facilities again. And I'm hoping against hope that this is what's gonna happen, and I'm wondering how this is going to To play out because according to the story that I have in front of me, they're saying that they're talking with the governor's office. This is lifetime Indios in a plan that may allow them to open before the 27th with new protocol. And I'll be honest. One of the safest places I feel is when I go to the gym. You know, when my gym opened, I'm in a different and unique situation because I work, you know, and one on one training. And there's never anybody in the gym, but the trainer and myself and but the even them the extent that they were going to this is a very when I say very small in comparison to the large fitness is it's a smaller Jim. But they've got stations with the spray and the sanitizing spray and wipes. They have somebody that's constantly mopping the floor and it's just it is the cleanest place except for a doctor's office that I've been in. There's got to be a way to get these doors open again has to be Just after 11 o'clock. We've been talking about anti police sentiment that's been permeating everything from our school system. Tio two different events. There's one more That really just I looked at him and I shook my head..
