"$1000 free wager for your first wager, Michigan and Virginia. Same thing True right now in Tennessee, where sports gambling has barely been legal for a month now, Ah lot of you still finding out in the state of Tennessee, fanduel dot com slash play and also Indiana, Illinois, Iowa. You've got Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Colorado, West Virginia fully 10 states. Now you can sign up in gamble at fanduel dot com slash clay again that sign up fanduel dot com slash clay. Okay. We are. I believe, Dub. You can correct me if I'm wrong. I believe we are now. 41 25 on the year If I'm not mistaken, is that correct? Is that our winning percentage? That is correct. All right. So we have given out I'm gonna do the math right now, which is always dangerous on the show. Let me see if I get my calculator of work. We have given out so far. 66 picks. We have 1 41 of them, which means our winning percentage right now so far in the season. With the out kick six pack of picks is a white hot 62.1%. All right, That is incredible. That means like this past week when we went 32 and one We won you money, but our percentage actually went down because we've got such a high standard that we have set right now. So 62.1% on the season so far play the music. And W Kenbrell these down as you hear them as we work our way through the out. Kick NFL six pack of picks. Alright lions at the Bears. It's a sad game. In the NFC North. Mitch Torbinski is starting Matthew Stafford's lions seem to have given up the ghost on the season. I like the under in this game 44 a half. We know how good the Bears defense is typically We also know that the Bears offense cannot score. I feel like the Lions have kind of fallen apart a little bit. I like the under 44 a half in this game double what say you? Well, I'm certainly not betting this over the way the Chicago Bears offenses looked basically the entire season. Turnovers and fanned and defensive scores or what could put this over. But not the offenses themselves. Yeah, that's what I was just about to say maybe a kickoff report return and the defensive touchdown. Maybe too. That's the only way I see this one going over. So one for one agreement here. All right. Indianapolis coming off of a tough home loss against the Titans goes on the road against the much improved. I believe Houston Texans under Romeo Cornell to Shawn Watson is playing really well, here's the problem Will four. Now out for the rest of the season. He has been the best deep threat for the Houston Texans for several years. I don't think that I like Houston as much as I did before that suspension instead, I think what we're going to see is an over 51. I think that what we've seen from the Colts defense. The past couple of weeks. Aaron Rodgers, Ryan Tannehill, both of them had success really kind of exploiting this this Colts defense that looks so good early in the year. And I believe we're going to see Houston have some success. Indianapolis will move the ball. Well, also, I like the over 51 in this one. The wolf Fuller suspension kind of concerns me because Houston, I think ranks dead last Running the football in the NFL, and that's how the Titans really broke down this cold defense. But I think if the Shawn Watson keeps playing the way he's playing because I gotta be honest, the last month or two. He's probably been the second or third best quarterback in the NFL. It's just the rest of his team is not very good that it's hard to take in under with Shawn Watson plan, so I'll go agreement hears and Philip Rivers look the Indianapolis if they can protect him, which I think they'll be able to do a decent job of Then I like their chances both teams to score. I'm going over 51. All right. Miami on the road against Cincinnati two, has been benched Ryan Fitzpatrick back behind the wheel. I like Miami to need. I might need a huge favor in this game. I think it's out to 11.5 or 12. That seems steep to me because I think it's gonna be a low scoring game. I love the under 42 a half in this one. Miami going up against Cincinnati. I like the under 42 a half what say you? Cincinnati has nothing on offense, and they returned to kick last week. I don't think they have any chance to actually win this game. If they have to score traditional fashion. I would like this under more of Cuba was playing, but Ryan Fitzpatrick, I think makes Miami's offense a little bit better. But last week against the Jets, that was a 22 to 3 game. Yep, I think that could be maybe the exact same score. He had 20 to 3. So I like the Dolphins, even though it's a big like I do like in the cover up that's playing my favorite play. But if I had another one, it would be the under. Yes. So I am on the Dolphins in Cincinnati, the under 42 a half. Okay, first three totals next three picking sides. Like the Raiders, Danny G and Roberto's team to come on the road against the Jets. They were awful. The Raiders were against Atlanta and I think that was a little bit of a hangover from the way that they lost against the Chiefs, and I think they will show up and I think that They will just run roughshod over the Jets. I like the offensive weapons that the Raiders have. I think they were embarrassed with their performance against the Falcons. The Jets have nothing left in the tank. I don't believe I like the Raiders minus 8.5 at the Jets. This is probably my favorite player the week because the Raiders got absolutely embarrassed. Yes. In Atlanta Coming off there really impressive loss against Kansas City. That's right. Everyone was hyping him up. There are three point favorites on the road in Atlanta. They get blown out. This is the perfect opportunity to buy low get a cheaper price on the Raiders, which I think that should be at least minus 10. So I'm going Oakland are excuse me. Las Vegas here over the jihad of agreement. So far, all right. The Patriots are going on the road against the Chargers. The poor. Whoa! Begun Stark cost Chargers on the season who can find ways to lose that? Even they haven't thought about before. I am going to take the Chargers, plus a point here Now, some people may say why, plus a point? Well, it's there. I could take upon the money line as well. I think the Chargers are going to beat the New England Patriots. The Patriots Five and six. I believe on the season not really been that impressive. They should have lost against the against the Cardinals at home now traveling all the way across the seas across the country. I don't think that I just flat out. Don't think Cam Newton has been very good. I know that Bill Bell attack against rookie quarterbacks has a lot of success. But I feel like Justin Herbert has seen everything at this point. I like the Chargers to cover the one and actually win this game out, right. This is a disagreement. For me. This might be the biggest Mitch mismatch of the entire year. Coaching watch coaching, realize Anthony Lynn verse Bill Belichick, Lynn and the Chargers, their two and seven In one score games this season, 13 and 22 since Anthony Lynn took over This is basically gonna probably get fired, right? I mean, yeah. I mean, last week was just a total abomination for the Chargers in the way he handled the clock and everything throughout. I can't bet on the chargers anymore. I'm taking New England here..

Interview With Shawn Van Dyke
"John thanks for taking the time to come and chat with us today. How's it. How's it going on doing great man. Thanks for having me. will you give us. I read your bio on your website. But will you give me in the audience of big picture of your background and kind of have to where you are now in. kind of. Give us the backstory. Yeah sir so by education and training or by just sending a lot of tuition money to the university of tennessee. I eventually ended up with a couple of engineering degrees. So i started my career in construction even though that might offend some people when this always used to be an engineer i make fun of engineers used to be one but i got a degree in civil engineering and then a master's in structural engineering and then went out and did the engineering thing for several years and then realized i don't really know how to build anything and i wanted to get out on the job site so transition from i'd say transition from engineering into construction. I really got laid off from the engineering firm. Heart was working for In went and joined project management team for large commercial contractor that. Put me out on large commercial sites Building all sorts of seven are really really like that Did that for a few years than my way. Up working for some architects and then for real estate developer Doing construction management so. I ended up traveling around the country building commercial real estate projects. You know big stores in the out lot developing out lots and all of that kind of stuff in that for several years. And by this time i was married had five kids now so the second kid was on the way my wife was like. I'm glad you're enjoying your job but You gotta stick around mean. I was on the road three or four days a week wherever the projects were so. That was my first business. Started back in. Two thousand five was a construction management and real estate development company. I'm here in knoxville tennessee. So as doing that work here locally then two thousand eight hit and banks were not lending money to real estate developers anymore So i transitioned from there and started a remodeling in general contracting business People these days called a pivot. I didn't realize pivoting at the time. I just time. I had four kids. Three four came back them So put the tool belt on and started a small construction company. Built it up from there and then one of my subcontractors might trim and melwork subcontractor young guy. We went to church together. His business was blowing up because he got into the high end. Trim and melwork work Market here in our area and typical difficult construction business owner great craftsmen horrible business person and he approached me one day and said man. Your i like the way that you run your construction business and everything's always organized I wanna talk to you about how to run a better business. So we met up for lunch and was talking to him about that and giving them some tips and tricks. And and i didn't know he was interviewing me at the time he said. Okay well i think. I need to hire somebody to run my construction business. Much mill work company and He's an acid yeah. I think you should do that. Because you're a horrible business person but you're an awesome. You're awesome craftsmen in great with the guys out in the field and the work was just unbelievable and he just said okay. I want you to do it. And so i thought i was like i got my own thing going on. I'm okay and he's a great salesman and he's like listen. You have a small construction company is gonna take you twenty years to get where you want to be. I'm already in those projects as a subcontractor we've landed some really high end stuff but this business that we just acquired meaning that the projects coming up he said it's gonna put me out of business doing these projects because i don't know what i'm doing and He he so he said I want you to come and run the business. And i thought i bluff bluffing okay. The only way. I'm going to run your business that you let me run the business. You run the field our on the business. But i'm i'm in charge of the business side of it. And he said no problem and he literally pulled out of manila folder with the entire business and it just random paper. Here's the business slid across the table and said you run it and went home talked to my wife and said this is a crazy idea. This is really stupid but my friends gonna suffer and he was right. It was an opportunity to get on some really into high level projects high end projects that i'd already always been wanting to do in such kind of step back and said all right. Maybe we should do this and So bit the bullet went on went. Joined that team as a as the chief operating officer and at the time we had six guys out in the field in within eighteen months we were at twenty two guys in. He was in debt and not making any money. And we kinda turn that around and and that wasn't all me. We had great team a great owner. That had a really good vision and i was just the execute and putting systems in place. Oh did that for about four years and then got another crazy idea saying. Hey what i've done with my businesses and now with this treadmill work business. I think i see the problem here. Within an industry. I can help a lot more business. Owners with systems. All i know construction. It's all i've ever done so after about four years of being the executive there. I left that that job and started writing books and and speaking at industry events and now it's four years later and i've been doing coaching and consulting work strictly for construction business owners since those back in twenty sixteen. So yeah right up for years. We've been doing this Before we move on but are you recommending to your kids. They go to college. You spend a lotta time in college. You said a master's in engineering of some type so talk about that for a second. Are you gonna man. You're gonna make mom hears this. He's gonna get offended. And it. Every time i say but m. i. encouraging my kids to go to college no not specifically i'm encouraging my kids to develop skills in areas that interest them and figuring out how they can make money at it now. Some of those things that some of my kids are interested in now will require them to go to college. But especially as we're seeing in twenty twenty man colleges change. They're still the same tuition rate but they're not allowing you to go on campus and all of the other things that higher said that here's where value is. Now they're saying nope can't come to campus. We're going to do all virtually. So i think the whole world has changed so but to answer your question. No i don't encourage my kids to go to 'cause. I don't discourage them from going to college. The i feel like it's my job as a parent when you're out on your own which i got four boys in a baby girl. I say baby girl. she's five. She's always going to be my baby girl. The boys they're on their own at eighteen. You better figure out how you're gonna make money at eighteen and if that means you're going to college then you know what i took me. I was on the five year plan to get my undergraduate now. Four year plan right but i worked the entire time and paid for most of my most of my college through work. They can do the same thing so And it looked statistically it takes most people at least six years to get an undergraduate degree and only forty percent of incoming freshman even graduate with a degree at all. So yeah do. I encourage them to go that path. Only if it interests them. Only only if that's that's where their future light. Hey you know. One of my kids wants to be a doctor yet. You probably better go to college. I have several of them that are interested in computer stuff in graphic design and other things and got my fourteen year old son this year to start working for a contractor and over the summer and he came home with more money and more cash in his pocket. And said yeah. That's what happens when you go work. And that's what happened with skill so

Football Playoff Committee ranks BYU 14th
"Football playoff rankings were released this week. And unfortunately we I also again and I've been saying this for the past couple years about 70 years since AH college football Playoff has been in existence that this is completely flawed. The college football playoff is commit completely flawed, and we saw the specifically play out with one team and that's BYU. BYU. A 19 0 team right now ranked 14th and this week's college football playoff rankings. BYU fell behind 32 lost teams Georgia, Oklahoma and Iowa State and Cincinnati undefeated received a more favorable initial ranking at number seven. Despite playing One fewer game. Then then BYU. But I want to kind of hover over this larger point in this larger guess. Prentiss as it relates to the college football playoff for second And talk about why I don't believe we're any better off than where we were seven years ago. When the AP poll in computers and analytics were deciding the fate off the championship teams or who got into the national championship game. First off as it relates to be why you do I believe the committee watches any BYU games? No. Do I believe that showed In their ranking of having them 14 overall. Yes. Uh, the committee justified Cincinnati at seven because, they said They're a top 10 offense in the top 10 defense. And that's fine. But yet what was contradictory to be why you being at 14 is B y. You've got a top five offense. I've got a top five defense. And so what You see there and one small example of what they used the criteria that they justified to use one team like Cincinnati. They don't use that same criteria to justify BYU. BYU has a top five overall offense in the country. They pass the eye test. With flying colors. Offensively, they've got a Heisman type quarterback. They've got a really good offensive line. They've beat a ranked team in Boise State. But yet They pretty much showed the I think the greatest amount of disrespect that you could show to a team. On. I'm not saying that BYU is a is a top five team. I've been saying on this program for several weeks Now. I don't think Cincinnati or BYU is going to get into the college football playoff, and I don't think they're worthy of that, even if they do run the table. I think they're good enough to be a team that's 789 and hovers in the New Year's Day, six bowl game, But I don't think group of five team is ever going to get in until they expand the college football playoff. But what's so frustrating about the college Football committee? And why I believe it's so flawed is what is their criteria. That's why I think a lot of this in the college football playoff rankings released this week. It's a moot point. There's no set criteria. The eye test is what they tell us. What is the eye test? The what I hear I test. I mean, what I test means to me. To be completely different than what the eye test means to producer John Or you know what? What The eye test means to one evaluate of the college football playoff committee could be completely different than one. Other people look at it so flawed. It's the ward. I testes so vague. It's ambiguous On every year we hear different scenarios and different criteria about what they're looking for. You know, uh, the eye test, saying that college football teams In certain teams that get in and justified teams off of the eye test of where they're ranked, would be like saying, Well, you know what Hi. Uh, I'm married this girl or I married my wife. Because of the eye test. She passes my eye test. And that may be true for me. Like what I find attractive in a woman and what I look at it a girl. Is, you know personal to me, but it could be completely different than what Prio producer John looks at in a girl like I might like a girl who's who's blonde and over 6 FT. That might pass my eye test. But what passes Big John's I test our producer. John's eye tests might be a girl whose athletic and in short, I don't know, but that's my point. That's a direct correlation to when I I rolled my eyes When I hear the college football playoff committee say that we're looking at the eye tests this Georgia number nine overall, pass the eye test. I mean, they're the highest to lost team in this week's college football playoff rankings, and I look at them and I go. Wow Number nine That's a gift to Georgia. We know they're not getting into the college football playoff, but you know they don't pass the eye test. I mean, they don't pass really any tests. They've already got two losses. Their offenses looked anemic, and even last week when they finally got a quarterback to play and throw for 400 yards, and JT Daniels They barely squeaked out a win over Mississippi State of to win team in Mississippi State. So you know, it's frustrating to sit down and watch these rankings and when they release him, because every year we kind of Or I least personally, you know, bang my head against the wall. A about their criteria and about what they're looking for four teams on how they justify teams that make the college football playoff I mean, In Ohio State gives up 35 points to a top 10 team in Indiana with a dynamic passer and one of the you know, one of the best receivers in the nation. On and you know, they drop Ohio State away down 2 to 4 in the college football playoff. Um, you know, Clemson has has missed their last two games. Um, you know, they had a solid win over Boston College and lost the Notre Dame and they're ranked higher than Ohio State. Uh, you know to me. The only reason Georgia is in the top 10 is They have a little bit more cachet. Maybe a top 10 recruiting class because they got drilled. The dog's got absolutely drilled in their two losses this year against Florida, Alabama, so their defense doesn't even really pass the eye test. And that's the frustrating part. Two is Do we evaluate teams off of when they play those teams? War. Do we hold teams hostage for how team's progress throughout the season are given example like Georgia. Thinking in terms of strength of schedule. Georgia. You could make a case well, they've got two wins verse two top 25 teams when they played each other like when they played Tennessee and we know Tennessee is a bad football team. But we didn't know Tennessee was a bad football team. When Georgia played in a month and a half ago, In fact, Tennessee was undefeated. They were coming off an eight win or eight consecutive game win streak, which was the longest in the country. And they were right 14th in the country Now, I don't believe in that case in that scenario that teams should be held hostage, uh, because of how their opponent progresses throughout the season. But we don't know from the committee. You know how they have a hold Those teams in regards when they play them. You know when, when Georgia played Auburn, they were ranked and you know, all burn five into now, That's really the most valuable and shiny. You went on their resume, but These are some of the flaws in some of the holes that you could continue to poke in the college football playoff on why I think a team like BYU unjustifiably got the disrespect that 14 that they got quickly as we wrap up this
Lou Holtz talks Notre Dame and more
"Lua alluded to you as being a builder and again i go back to the interview which you had here in the studio with us and the obvious question from a person when you They asked you about the rumors you going to. Usc and you said usc is one of the three best jobs. And i said wait a minute. I know notre dame is one of the best. What's the third best job. And you said the one that i get and it turned out to be usc but the university of south carolina. And and i'm just wondering when you reflect back about taking over that program. Why did you take over such a struggling program. And what is it is allowed. Lou holtz everywhere. He has gone to be able to build success. What i foresee a we will not arrive. I think we had three offensive linemen on scholarship is all we had. It did have a quarterback and didn't have a running back to his per se. But you know you grin there you you just you try to fundamental you. Try to do the things that we talked about. Just you know. Build build the football team. And i have gone to six different situations in college and never inherited a winner and went to bow game no later in the second year with matter of fact after going on eleven we finished seventeenth a country next year and beat ohio state in a bowl game following here i think we finished loveth in the country. Beat state again on january one. But it's not because guy it's Coach it's all about the people. If team i mean it's about coaches and players. All all really tried to play their road and believe that you can do something. We read great fan support in south carolina. We were below eligible this year. We'd basically accepted a bowl bid and then of course after a little probably had with trump said in my last football game we decided not to go to a bowl game. I would've liked to vendor micro in a bowl game and yet at the same time within hayes and i'll have the same legacy Last was in clemson was involved. Refer also that's not a great legacy to have necessarily but it's a good football team. Many people coming back in. Like steve spurrier command. And you know he. He's a guy that likes to win. And i think he can win earlier. I believe that in the bud by heart. I think he's an excellent coach. I think the players will respond well to them. And i think we took a the longest losing program the country and took it to a bowl game and he'll take it from there to the championship level when you talk about coaching today And i think about francs being fired after he won nine games and i think about the expectations that go along ty willingham of course sopa but notre dame in his first year wins his first eight and then what has happened to him recently as well. What are the expectations of football coach at a major program today. Well i've been figured that basically very very impatient but you know they. They want instant success. One instant gratification and want to go the top. That the trina goes to the university of louisville inherits a very very good football team. From coach smith went onto michigan state. Now goes between things that a tremendous job but You know feel air. And he has those great athletes. They have great success. Urban meyer. who. I hired at university of notre dame you know he goes to Utah has instant success and everybody sitting there saying well. Hey he can do it let. Let's go get that guy that can do it here that we can win immediately will You know having code having smith there your quarterback as a pretty good asset to have it set about where somebody also had success. And i am sure they they look at it and say well gee they came in and they were down and all of a sudden they one. That's what we want to do and everybody all the fans wanted to two things who's going to be the new coach and he will be the next quarterback i. It's unbelievable i. i don't care you. You want to become unpopular to hurry. Go for being the second team quarterback to the i team the anything too is if you think about it and i was thinking about notre dame just the other day what should be their expectation level and i know the obvious as well to win championships but if you look at the landscape of football today lou there's a lot of teams that are able to get outstanding athletes that don't have the same requirements to get maybe to get into school There's a lot of schools have reputations of putting players into the pros and what have you so having said all of that. What should be the expectation at notre dame today as far as their season and their teams year in year out when further. Joyce hired may at the university of notre dame. He said. I wanna talk to you about a couple of things. Basically not negotiable. These are not negotiable university. Notre dame we are need understand. This now isn't even before i was ever offered the job at you. Know we we. We will not redshirt. We will not take transfer from junior. College will not take a transfer from another school against need search chain core curriculum classes for years of english. Three years of math through calculus at center players are going to miss practice because of late classes or or or labs or tutors or things along that line. The players are going to live on campus. We are going to have great facilities. You have nothing to do with the discipline but athlete on campus We don't pay a whole lot You're not allowed to president of the university. Notre dame was the rule when say they gave the president rates once that they could give me a raise anyone on all that and he said with the we're expecting to compete for a national championship at least once every three or four years and I didn't find anything wrong with ed. And we did the head it. I think that should be their expectations. Not necessarily this year even next year. But i do think They expect Charlie wise to compete for the national championship. And i think he will. The same things are saying about notre dame they said about whenever procedure went there years ago. They said it. When i was there i remember my first year recruiting at notre dame. My aunt had us fifty eight to sixty year before. I got there in their last football game on national television and You go into a home to recruit a young man that have all these That have all these articles in there. About how Notre dame can't win anymore and the schedules to tough. There's all this. And there's all that. And i just don't believe that i i think you know. The sec schedule's pretty tough When i was at university dame might think at fifty four percent of games ever coach there were against a top twenty five football teams. But that's part of notre dame you play the best you know. We played washington when they're really good. We played tennessee. We played texas We we we played Miami florida played. Florida state You just that's just the way you did it at notre dame and I don't think it's any different now. I might be a little bit down right now but yeah. I think it's going to be fine but lou. Isn't it a little bit different. In the sense. That i used to think of notre dame and you probably going into a home where you know it was. I want this kid. The kid's gonna sign right there. It was like with john wooden at ucla. I mean john recruiting because everybody wanted to come and play for john wooden at ucla during those particular years but now the competition it. It's almost like well. We've got a pro passing program so if you're an outstanding quarterback you're going to go to this score that school i mean isn't the the mystique oh most of notre dame and not to their own detriment or fall but isn't it a little bit perceived differently today might be but i don't think necessarily it should be. I mean on tv every saturday. One time when i said notre dame we had fifty seven players active in the nfl. The next was penn state with thirty nine and third with southern cal with thirty eight But we we had to work hard. Recruit again we. We found uphill struggle. But here's the different. We could go to california and would we went after navigate. It was us usc or ucla. When would end attack between us. Texas tech today and you went into florida as a youth. Florida state miami and florida. You went into nebraska to be between you and the university of nebraska. You could go anywhere in the country and you would have legitimate chance to recruit the best athlete in that state but you would have to use the beat. The home state and you didn't always do that but when they start talking about well. Nfl i want this type of program. Notre dame's not a four year decision. Support here decision. What do you do in your football's over guarantee you're gonna play in the nfl with china education. You'll get what are you gonna learn. And are you going to be better prepared to go in there. You know i was watching Tonight on tv On some sports show where they had the ten major mistake officials made and one of them was grown bettas called tails and the guy said hatch. And i had to laugh because a whole time as notre dame the first thing i said the locker room before the game was we will call tales. We always called. This was a game. But i just think that You're still a forty year decision. Not a four year decision. You talk about the only thing that's going to change it from where you are today to where you'll be five years from now the books you read the people you meet in a dream a dream and the baby. You're gonna meet university in our day and they're going to be the ones that are going to be illness companies and being. Ceo's and they're going to be the leaders that those are the people you're gonna come in contact with and then you get him on campus. Let them talk to your athletes now. The guy that doesn't feel comfortable in that environment isn't gonna get isn't gonna fit well notre dame anyway and now there were always people that didn't want the discipline did want the the challenge. Academically didn't want to have to work that hard on their academics guy that they won't be interested in the university of notre dame necessarily but one thing i used to laugh about was you would read. You would read these top twenty two football players in america. What schools air considered and other day. It'd be listed on about eighteen oven. Maybe seven of them. We were recruiting because we couldn't get in school academically. But they would always put notre dame was one of their schools Florida not because it made them look good so to speak and I think notre dame will get back. I really do because it's a national school a special school. One of the thing that i think is the lou holtz legacy when it comes to football in. It's almost like parenting. In a sense. You mentioned about urban meyer. I think a barry alvarez a host of other coaches you must feel awfully proud of the the legacy of lou holtz from the coaches that went on from underneath year wing onto other programs either as assistance or successful head coaches as well. I've always felt that. I learned this from woody. Hayes have an obligation to prepare your coaches to become head coaches. I'd always explain why we did things and how we did it. the philosophy at center. I think we've made it look simple that everybody would come in and they go. I can do that. I wanna be head coach. But i went down. Visit very alvorada in preparation for the bogue. Gabi speed come down and one time we had about.

Just you know it's just so many coaches you enjoy it and that's one of the reasons why you wanna talk to me. Now's not because.

How different hospitals battle the pandemic to save lives
"Thanksgiving holiday arrives during an escalating calamity. More than one million people are testing positive for Corona virus every week. Now that is a high enough number that there is a good chance that some of your family friends or co workers. Among them. It's certainly been true for me these last several weeks if you want to identify and especially hard hit state, just throw a dart at a map because the odds are that any state you hit will qualify. This morning we visit three. Sebastian Martinez Valdivia is a K B A. And Missouri Blake farmer is with WPL and in Nashville, Tennessee, and Bram Sable Smith. Is with Wisconsin public radio. Welcome to all of you. Good morning. Thank you. Morning, and Bram. How widespread is this surge in Wisconsin, where you are? It's quite widespread, you know, by September, public health experts were really sounding the alarm about the rise. In cases we're seeing in the state initially were seen surges and cities where the university started located, but very quickly. The virus is rampant in communities. All over Wisconsin. As you know, Steve cases they're just the beginning of a covert search. So our hospital started filling up quickly. And maybe most concerned involves our death. Worried. We reported the record 104 deaths yesterday. We're losing about 52 people every day, on average and over 3000 people. Wisconsin have died of covered 19 so far, and I should also note we are seeing a slight downturn. Our cases are slightly our cases are dropping ever so slightly, But we're still very much at the top of the mountain and Steve the death rates very similar here in Tennessee. But cases are still climbing often more than 4000 Day. And As we found throughout this pandemic destined to lag those big spikes in new cases by a couple of weeks, So Tennessee's bracing for what could be to come because so far they're just has no sign existing of cases, letting up. Blake, over here in neighboring Missouri were in a similar ballpark in terms of new cases on deaths. But the really troubling trend has been in hospitalizations, which are high and continuing to rise on. Hospitals are really struggling with capacity and a lot of parts of the state. Well, let's talk a little bit more about hospitals or doing in Missouri, then Yeah, well, one of the big problems is a lot of the smaller rural hospitals that traditionally transfer patients toe urban and metro areas for intensive care are really struggling to find beds because those larger hospitals are already full. S O. For example, Cocks Health, which is in Springfield, the third biggest city here in Missouri, has expanded its hospital capacity multiple times over the past nine months, but it's still had to turn people away. Steve Edwards is the CEO there. So we will have added 147 bed capacity, which is probably bigger than the Average hospital state, Missouri, he says the hospital keeps hitting what it would have considered a worst case scenario every couple of weeks. But adding rooms isn't really the half of it the biggest challenge, according to Edward to staffing, so training staff to care for covert patients, and then the draining work of actually caring for them. So that's the crisis in Missouri, Bram Sable Smith, Let's go back to Wisconsin Howard doctors trying to keep up where you are. You know, October the state we converted our state fairgrounds into what's called an alternative care facility to handle the excess capacity. We have so about 89% of the hospital beds available in the entire state for being occupied right now, in some regions, that's higher. At the alternative care facility. There's only nine patients right now, though. That's in part because it's voluntary to go there. It's also because it's where patients will go to recover kind of after they've cleared a hurdle in their covert treatment. The idea behind that is To free up resource is inside the hospitals to treat on influx of patients. Researchers like ICU beds that are in very short supply here and brand that the corps of Engineers build alternative care sites here in Tennessee is well, but increasingly, there's a concern about having the staff to open them. And a big reason for that is that so many nurses and doctors air out themselves with Kovar 19 or because they have to quarantine Well, Blake. What are hospitals in Tennessee, saying about that? Well, they're really starting to sound the alarm. In a way we haven't heard for a long time. Hospital administrators have wanted to make sure people knew that they would be able to handle the usual patients along with covert, and that's just less. So now. Dr Katrina Green works in an HCIA emergency room here in Nashville. We're worried about what the delays and care will mean for our patients, and I am personally terrified in my hospital. Being full could result in someone dying in the waiting room. The situation has become particularly severe in parts of Texas as well like El Paso and love IQ. For now that they're able to transport covert patients to other parts of the state. But there's going to be a time likely when those hospitals air capacity to You know, I spent some time last week and one of the five covert units at the University Hospital here in Madison, Wisconsin, where I live. I spoke to Mary Lowe. She's a nursing assistant in the unit. She's been there since the pandemic began. This has been going on for a long time. And right now it doesn't feel like there's an end in sight. Even though there will be a time it doesn't necessarily feel like that right now. You know that unit as 28 beds and they've been consistently full and she says, it's it's exhausting and remember, the whole reason for shutdowns early on, was to prevent hospitals from being overrun will now in a lot of these states like ours, Those restrictions are long gone, and hospitals are now nearing the edge of that cliff. But political leaders are really finding it hard to go backward after lifting restrictions, months, Okay, granted, that's granted. That's true. But suggestion haven't some political leaders at least faced pressure to approve more safety measures. Yeah, There's definitely been pressure here in Missouri. The State Hospital Association actually sent a letter last week to a Republican governor Mike Parson, urging him to kind of issue one of those statewide mass mandate, saying the Wolf is at the door. But like a lot of Republican governors, he's rejected that call just to the north of us, though. In Iowa, the story's a little different. So Governor Kim Reynolds, there, also a Republican, was initially against the mask mandate, and she even said that city's couldn't issue their own mandates back in the summer, But she recently reversed course. I would have seen one of the biggest surges in cases and hospitalizations in the country per capita. I will has roughly half the population of misery, but it's almost in the same ballpark in terms of new cases. S O earlier this month, Reynolds did end up issuing a statewide mass mandate as well as some restrictions on public and private gatherings, with exceptions for some businesses and religious services.
College Basketballs Uncertain Return to the Court
"Myron medcalf has been covering college basketball for espn for nearly a decade. So my excitement. I should admit comes from a place of utter ignorance because after eight months of this pandemic after a cancellation of march madness. I have literally no idea myron what to expect from college basketball. At all this season in terms of the virus in terms of what's happening on the floor. All i really know right now. Is that both duke. And arizona announced yesterday that they are postponing their opening games. Because of covid and tennessee's rick. Barnes got diagnosed with corona virus. So let's just begin with tip off tomorrow. What's this all going to look like. Why i think that's the million dollar question college basketball a lot like college football. Most of the games are scheduled to be played obviously cove. It was a challenge for college football. I think for college basketball. That'd be magnified by about ten because you have more than three hundred team that are going to try to kick this season off. So i think everybody's just crossing their fingers and hoping for the best and not knowing what the head is on the theme of the three hundred teams. All kind of spinning. This roulette wheel is a lot to process. What are the protocols. Like the health protocols teams employers going to try to abide by this season. I think that's another important question and it's difficult to answer in that. There are so many different protocols by state by county depending on what's conference iran. I mean you're talking to thirty two different conferences. I'll give you an example. The american athletic conference. They're going to test three days per week during the season can't do a consecutive days. That's what ended up like guidelines. Recommend however at temple abide by the city of philadelphia's protocols which say they have to test seven days before competition every single day so you have even within conferences different rules and regulations. I've talked to athletic directors and california who are telling me that they still have to submit plans to their local authorities to get approval to compete this season. Forget host the team. Forget any of the other details just to be able to get back on the floor so you got see a lot of chaos unfold in the coming months so you are very clearly a healthcare reporter on top of being a college basketball reporter so myron explained to me what is happening in these. Pseudo bubbles where regular season games are gonna take place. One of them is an eleven day. Event starts tomorrow called bubble ville. Which has real dr seuss fives from what i can tell. What exactly is bubble ville. Well we're gonna find out but it's basically a bunch of teams all in one side of the megan sun in connecticut. Where the idea is you have everybody. At one location. There will be testing measures. Extreme testing measures with the goal being the kind of emulate. What you saw with the nba bobble on a on a somewhat smaller scale. They don't have the two hundred million dollars that the nba spent. Two resources are different. But i think their attempt is to mimic that. And when you're there there will be security in these hotels making sure that people are following protocols and then there will be specific places that you can and can't go. The challenge is going to be. Can you do that for dozens and dozens of teams and make sure that everybody's following the rules we saw the nba and the resources they put into that. It's a different different level. I think with college basketball in an attempt to pull this off for the next couple of weeks there are certainly some challenges attached to that. And there's already issues at bubble ville right. I mean the news baylor and some other schools have already pulled out of this tournament. Florida kobe issues. They pull out Baylor scott drew head coach. Their test positive announces that yesterday they pull out and then arizona state which was scheduled to play. Baylor in bubble veal. Says you know what we're not comfortable so you already have teams that have been moving things around an idea that i think we'll see throughout the season. How can you play college basketball with three hundred plus teams unless there is some sort of pseudo bubble environment

Atlanta - Social media thrilled with JT Daniels performance, but ponders why Kirby Smart didn’t play him sooner
"From dog nation. Social media thrilled. Jt daniels performance. But ponders why kirby smart didn't play him. Let's welcome in the author of that article connor. Thank you for being with us. First of all. Let's talk about the good news. I the fact that he played well for those who missed the game and it was not exactly the feature game of the day How did he play. I thought he was fantastic. Four hundred yards four touchdowns as the first georgia quarterback to do that since twenty thirteen for a program that has had lingering questions about this going back even pass through the twenty nine thousand nine season to have a performance like this especially when they couldn't run the ball. At all this was the worst rushing performances. One thousand nine hundred eighty six which is a total yards. Jt daniels doesn't play the way he does it. I think it's pretty fair to say. The georgia probably loses to mississippi state team numbers. Not that highly thought of coming into saturday. We're talking to kinda raw and lane kiffin alluded to that as well. Which is just a shocking statement. Is it not that we we ended up getting to this point for those who have not followed the vagaries connor of jt daniels. Do we know what the hold up was with him. in terms of clarence yeah so. His dad came out and made some comments today. You can read them a dog nation where he wasn't one hundred percent ready to go and august and even september. We know he wasn't clear to play in. That arkansas game came out right before the auburn game. Second game of the season and said jt daniels physically clear to play. Football games and reality is yours. Second game of the year. We didn't end up seeing him until the seventh game. We know he took that knee. Brace off prior to the tennessee game and practices in warm ups. But for whatever reason we didn't see him it may have been an issue of how comfortable he was in his knee. And the level of mobility that kirby smart was looking for that's something he's referenced. Many times based off what we saw on saturday that mobility was there the ability to make plays in really. I think the biggest question at least fans people who follow the program asked me or how close was jt daniels to what we saw on saturday back on november seventh when georgia played florida because if daniels plays like he did on saturday against florida. There's a real chance of jordan. Finds a way to at least made that game closer and possibly even win. It just truly amazing to think about how different this georgia season is and while they're having a better season than most two losses of Effectively out and georgia was expecting to be in atlanta at the end of the year and not watching on television or playing in another game. Just give us your your your read on the energy that has now maybe been brought back to a program that was seemingly dead in the aftermath of the florida game. It was a it was a mighty big fall from grace. Do you think this is going. Yeah people's energized. Even i think if. Jt daniels keeps playing away. He does. It is gonna keep people interested in tuned in the rest of the season. 'cause you point out. This is georgia program. Where going eight and two this year in a burst in the peach bowl. That doesn't do it for them. There was a lot of negative energy around this program. Losing the florida so for daniels will come out. Look good look like a possible at least certainly this season and potentially even long term solution at the quarterback position there for georgia. I think that's huge place. While again against south carolina and finishes the season out strong. I do think that can build a lot of momentum towards that twenty twenty one season when a lot of these skill players. That played really well on saturday night. Also come back to the storage team.
Indianapolis Colts beat Green Bay Packers Packers in wild overtime contest
"Note on last hour. We were talking about that Colts win over the Packers to things that stuck out to me for the Colts number one. An offense that isn't really built for quick strikes in comebacks came back from down. 14 points to win. Number two a coaching staff. Was able to out Fox the opposing coaching staff at halftime and completely shut down the Packers offense in the 3rd and 4th quarters. As the Packers had scored 28 points of the first and only three in the second half. So a great job by Frank Reagan that coaching staff I think that that proved that the Colts can be a difficult team to play against. If they win that division if they get to January right now, they are leading the A F C south. They're battling it out with the Tennessee Titans. I think that a win like yesterday and come back fashion of the adjustment that they made at halftime. Does give you some confidence that the Colts could be a tough go at it in January.

"Radio network welcome back to Tennessee matters it's one of the most difficult subjects to talk about an even understand and it's been on the rise nationwide in many states including Tennessee were initially unprepared for the growth of human trafficking in recent years Tennessee has adopted stronger laws and increase the fines for traffickers especially child sex trafficking joining me now to help us get a better picture of where Tennessee as is Linda Smith the former US congresswoman for the state of Washington and founder and president of shared hope international welcome to Tennessee matters Linda very good to be with you will really appreciate your time on this Tennessee got an a in twenty nineteen is that correct absolutely for the third year in a row yeah Tennessee is number one best grade in the nation we're number one yeah I feel like we should you are number one we should do a dance that's fantastic so how far you yeah how far is he just a common fixing this problem eight three year are literally changing their grades this year we had ten states raise their grades that's hard to raise about an eighth tennis season a but I'm still has some things that need to be addressed for the survivors and some system issues but and we won't get justice if we don't fix those but for this year ten more states raise the great I think what's really interesting is when we start started addressing this issue there weren't even any laws on domestic money sex trafficking Amanda bought sex with minors did not go to jail they were identified as misdemeanors of anything and so when you look at the base law that we didn't have laws about that so every state now has a law on child sex trafficking and every state has a penalty for the buyers sellers facilitators and our training does that work with the children there's a lot of states like Tennessee about how that also so we're making a lot of headway I think the things that are shocking to me as some states are not following the great example of stopping the criminalization of these children they're still twenty states the rest the child or can research over the crime committed against them even though they have a law are they have a prostitution along with his old biases wall of discrimination that treat these young women usually and some boys criminals so Tennessee has been leading we send states to look at Tennessee's laws we write legal briefs on all the states we grade all the states and the states that her first a fact the other states so we applaud your AG's office we applaud your advocacy your legislature for the progress because it has been a steady steady drumbeat of progress that has been such a great example for the nation now just a little inside this is like grade school the forty one points of basics your basic law we will now issue a new template of a return of report cards that deal with everything from identification through the court process and procedures to the actually bring about justice so we want to assure the end of the day the child isn't or the use isn't real victimized in the system and that this victim of a crime is acknowledged all the way through from identification to trial as a victim and that they get justice never in court doesn't have to face fender in most cases but courtroom procedures lots of lots of things we need to do got to bring that about but we also have to make sure this nation we don't have these procedures that let buyers out spend out maneuver because they have the money and the defense the victim by there's a lot of states are still have provisions to some extent that allow an age difference or makes the child proof they have a pound disclose well they shouldn't have to do anything they shouldn't be re victimized and we have to make sure the dolls are responsible so you'll be seeing more more rules more adding to the report card and again and this is a very strong state we intend to work continually with Tennessee and hope that all of these looked protections that we still need in the system DOT Tennessee will lead in those areas also we are talking to Linda Smith the founder and president of shared hope international on Tennessee matters I'm very tough a difficult subject but it's one that Tennessee has kind of excel that over the past few years and it dealing with its child sex trafficking and now is this Smith you been working for a long time at this but at one point you were in Congress is that where you got the idea is to kind of start to do this well to begin with I didn't want to do any of this I did not even know what went on I was told about a group of children the insults for stocks in Mumbai India in between votes I got on the plane went locked privately funded was very confused by it and started networking services around the world for we have villages and long term restoration in about two thousand and six we were commissioned by the US government to investigate countries to take a look at the markets of this call trafficking market research we publish it we just said it's a demand driven market just demand and so it's on our side on shared hope dot org and you can go to resources you can actually find out and you'll see that we evaluated several countries in that I decided on America because I didn't understand for sure what we have I thought it before to cross borders what was I surprised what we found were middle school kids being sold American man it was a domestic market and it was the biggest numbers an indicator of trafficking that we saw now I think for that shocked the nation that means that our whole movement about domestic minor sex trafficking came about in that revelation to Congress and the research that we did for them and I also said that our states don't have laws against buying the kit for sex and even if they could use other laws they're not by the very nature of that huge wall of bias that says these kids are the criminals and in all the states we had the kids being considered as criminals in five states a little bit of something but it wasn't being enforced and the men were walking away in the kids room put in jail so a lot of this you feel were old laws on the books that were jazz antiquated and not really dealing with the new way that people were doing this is that correct I think it's it's it's a very very old so when you look I just wrote a history book is called invading the darkness and when you go back to the early nineteen hundred you find that they were trying to find it for the girls brought from the rural areas a lot of the advocates and it was working out of New York and Chicago and what you found was that they were they were crying out to save our boys and save our girls well it was for the boys so they wouldn't get disease in their folly for the girls it was for total immoral fall so they label them as one state trick them into the city to work in a factory or something once they got it into the resort which is four Richmond bought them if they were rated the men would walk away and these once young teenage girls in the villages or the rural areas now became a fallen immoral woman some states she could not even testify and throughout the country there was a flight for allowing her to at least be protected but in those flaws in a prostitution the person being prostituted the criminal so was in those times that night we based on much for long and so in twenty states we still have an old prostitution along that doesn't have any age definition managed or it says maybe for under fifteen they might give some kind of concession but now we have thirty states and DC could change that law they've actually taken the kids on the prostitution long totally ring mold any provision that would allow them to be re victimized in the court systems and are now working as is Tennessee on making sure from the moment of identification that those kids are protected I think the biggest issue that we see is where there's strong public awareness campaigns like you were doing today by recording are by having this program that we find people waking up identifying around on the issues knowing.

R. A.. welcome back twenty seventeen will be remembered as one of the deadliest years in Tennessee's history in the opioid crisis in that year Tennessee lost over twelve hundred souls due to opioid overdose at puts Tennessee and the ranking is one of the hardest hit states in the epidemic and the numbers continue to be staggering in twenty eighteen over six million prescriptions were written for pain killers and perhaps the hardest number to stomach the number of children born with neonatal abstinence syndrome that's basically where a child is born in drug withdrawal. there is a positive outlook in the crisis the new laws have helped but that's really only half the battle joining me now is doctor Lisa Pearcy she is commissioner for the Tennessee department of health welcome to Tennessee matters doctor fear see how large is the opioid problem in Tennessee the opioid problem affects every Tennessean whether it's family or friends loved ones or yourself one thousand two hundred and sixty eight Tennesseans died in twenty seventeen from opioid related overdoses I and so it's a problem that affects all of us in Tennessee all in recent years is been on awful lot of attention thrown at this epidemic and one would question at this point have we made any progress in really addressing it we have made a progress in addressing the crisis but you know that's been through a multifaceted effort one of those things is through changing are prescribing practices we've been educating prescribers and then enforcing those rules of marks prescribers to make sure that we're not adding to the problem from the medical system you know another thing we're doing is raising awareness of opioid abuse and waste that folks can get help and so we have made some strides but we still got a long ways to go well you mentioned awareness one of the new campaigns arrive understand Tennessee is involved in is called the Tunis he faces of opioids what is that Tennessee faces of opioids campaign is an exciting initiative that the department of health in partnership with the centers for disease control and prevention has undertaken to really put a face on the opioid crisis and what's the main goal and purpose of this campaign the goal of this campaign is to really say this affects us all in every county in every city in every part of Tennessee people don't really think that those can. things happen to me or my types of professions or my types of social class but that's the point of the entire campaign is to show that it does affect us all in many different ways on the website is T. in face of opioids dot com along with statistics and information or some very personal stories of people who have struggled with this crisis in some way how did you choose them we solicited all kinds of input for the campaign we've got people who have been affected personally by addiction we've got family members who have lost loved ones I we have professionals both medical professionals legal law enforcement professionals educators every person from every kind of walk of life is represented in the S. and that was to get a lot of different perspectives on how opioids affect each one of those people in their jobs and in their lives and it gives us a really broad understanding of the deep and wide impact that opioids half we are talking to doctor Lisa appears he she has a commissioner for the Tennessee department of health we're talking about the opioid crisis in the state of Tennessee in some of the ways the department of health is trying to help reduce the number of drug overdose stats what are some of the steps you guys are taking first and foremost our goal at the department is prevention and one of the ways that we prevent things in in any capacity but specifically in opioids is through education and a lot of people don't set out to get addicted to opioids they get addicted when they are had treated for medical procedures and even educating people on proper prescribing both on the physician side and on the patient's side educating them on the warning signs of what might be too much also education as far as it goes for treatment if somebody thinks they have an issue. to seek treatment and how to how to get help also we look at what we call harm reduction strategies so things that we can do if somebody does have an addiction issue and is struggling with opioid over use and things like overdose reversal agents and really ways to get people into treatment when they need it so is this part of the Tennessee together initiative. Tennessee together initiative was an effort first I started a couple of years ago and this is another iteration of that type of work it's separate from that but it is complementary to it Tennessee together it started out with some prescribing limits and some other regulatory changes and it really highlights the need for a multi disciplinary effort so we're hitting it from the medical front from the patient's side of things from the faith based and community portion it really takes all hands on deck to deal with a crisis this large so it's come a long way but it sounds like there's a long way to go what are some of the next steps for the program and for the department the next steps are to continue to educate of folks and make them aware of the issue we are continuing to promote our Tennessee faces of opioids campaign and actually still soliciting additional stories and the more stories that we have the wider audience we reach people look at the stories inside you know that really resonates with me and I can see myself in that story and and it internalizes it for them and help them to to seek treatment or or education even more so we'll continue with those efforts and all the other great efforts are there going on statewide the website again he is T. N. phase of opioids dot com if you'd like to know more there's a lot of resources at that site and a lot of information about the plans that the state has worked on how does all this get funded fortunately or unfortunately depending on how you want to look at it this has garnered a lot of national attention the good part of that is a lot of resources our resources are being deployed today as a both on a state level and a federal level and so there are a lot of grievance available and just says we've used for this for the centers for disease control but they're also state local and federal grants. being used to spread this message which is really important so be on the funding is there a need for help from people anybody who wants to contribute time or energy you know a lot of times people think oh well I'm not a counselor or I don't really know how to deal with this addiction but often times people that are struggling with addiction or have just gone into recovery need jazz some basic blocking and tackling help things like can you watch My Baby while I go to a meeting can you give me a ride to my treatment center in at you know bringing food over or just supporting people with a kind word or a Pat on the back can.

"The exception of some northern or some southern counties yeah long behind we get a more yeah so but everybody yeah that is hearing the show is under the jurisdiction weather service office go to their website find out which amazing information come back we talked about be right back the National Weather Service on Tennessee matter Tennessee back welcome to Tennessee matters we are talking with Chrissy Hurley from the National Weather Service office in Nashville about some of the severe weather bands that occur across the state at this time of year and one of them one of the biggest areas flash flooding and this is a yearly concern and it is one that you should take very seriously Christy how it how we've been faring this year with comparison to other years well you know this year I think there have been more flash flood finality at looking at a whole across the United States I'm here locally out in the state of Tennessee we've actually had four and and we have one in February not far by from Nashville so you know we've been when we get those rainy patterns and when those the rains come down very fast in a short amount of time you know that's when we can get in trouble and you know I think most of the people are almost over half of the fatalities have been people driving in two flooded roads and you know I've never ever grasp that concept because you would never drive across the road I had a wildfire going across that unless you know you had No Way Out right so why do we drive across roads that are completely covered with rushing water you know the only possible explanation it's not a good one is a lot of people probably see the water got up I got that that that mode the but that's not the case in a water situation right any kind of any inconvenience to turn around you know if you don't know where you are you gotta read load your GPS and figure out you know a different way to go and you know at night it's really difficult to tell if that road has a whole lot of water on it or can I clear it so you know I I think that is that is part of the issues and that's why it makes flash flooding so dangerous and I think your your middle Tennessee I think we we do some of us that have been here for awhile we pay attention the flights I think we definitely pay attention to them we you know we are more cognizant of them since two thousand ten but you know you still see people who are going through these intersections plowing through we have reports in February people going through close roads were barricaded their get out of their vehicle move the barricades go through yeah back out of their vehicle the barricades back so close the road backs that was nice of them and they go on their way it is it's really difficult on that you know we have a little saying turn around don't drown and we really start with young kids with that saying and I tell them all the time and I do school talks you know go ahead and tell your parents turn around don't drown because sometimes as adults I think we think all well my my S. U. B. can make it through there but I'm telling you all it takes is twelve to eighteen inches of really fast moving water to take your tires off the road and that's really scary if it's moving fast enough you will lose control of your vehicle would you say water rescues in vehicles are the number one flooding it related instance here yeah yeah absolutely you know not as you know there are people that time you'll play in the creeks and streams and that we've had you know issues within your hiking and that kind of thing but the majority of a flood in says are driving and you know I think most the time you think well the fire department rescue squad they'll get there but a lot of times the water moves so quickly yeah there's no chance for them to come rescue me well that that is absolutely stunning to think about when big that you would be that people would actually go out and from the standpoint of somebody else and save me I'm gonna make this bad decision and somebody else will come to my rescue they're putting their lives in danger to do that absolutely I think maybe you know we it rains here all the time you know we have to understand is we have heavy rain all the time so I think sometimes it just it just doesn't think again and unless you're thinking about me and you know I don't know if the road still there underneath that your big water your area or or why it or the the and the water is moving really fast you just sometimes you just don't think about it and then you get in a routine if it's the same way you drive every day you think why can make it and unfortunately I mean flooding is I hear in middle Tennessee you know here lately has been the number one weather related killer lease over the past what probably ten years so it was something that we definitely stress over you know we have flies we have tornadoes and then the heat is the third and relate as far as tornadoes go our season for that we get two of them a year we get one in the spring and one in the fall is there one that wins out on statistically the worst usually it's the month of April but it's a you know it mother nature's she's she's a funny one for us lately and over the last I think it was like six or seven years we haven't had any needs big time severe weather in our traditional screen tornado season I think that the biggest tornado mind when we look at the stats heads in July you know it's been a very unusual around here and it's only a matter of time it is what we always preach but April may and March our top three twenty no mind statistically since nineteen fifty when you average it all out our secondary season our fourth most active twenty a month is November we get this summer June July August is typically tropical are related educating tropical storm if you think back to hard being a September two thousand seventeen it was kinda decaying over here we had a couple of tornadoes in around Nashville from that so usually the summertime tornadoes aren't as strong as what you would see in the spring and fall so the tornado threat is one of them but a lot of people also with the summer months you get sunshine and eventually you get into some some very intense heat and that takes its toll as well yeah you know me in the past couple weeks has been pretty brutal as far as he eats and luckily we got a nice repeat now but you know she is one of those things that can really sneak up on you you know growing up in the south what we're used to the heat humidity you know the people complain about it but we're used to it but I'm telling you no matter how much you can get used to it you over exert yourself and you don't hydrate then you can go down here all very very quickly you can start with you know he exhaustion which can rapidly deteriorate to heat stroke and we saw here would do what he struck the tally in the news I hear recently with the football player the X. tightened so I think that is you know something that you gotta pay attention with you know the elderly children even out cutting grass if you're not you're listening to your body and and you know you know it's one of those days then you know maybe take it easy way to the evening hours early morning hours and make sure you drink plenty of water typically what are the hottest months for Tennessee well for eyes you know man it's usually July and August you know it seems like June was a really really hot around here but I hate to say that we haven't seen the full summer just yet we typically I think is like mid August is our peak heating highest temperatures and then I'm a tall G. the temperature starts to go down after that I think it's about like August fifteenth or so and then things start cooling off statistically so you know we've had years where mid September we're still hitting your night low nineties with a lot of humidity so you know July and August are really are months where you have to watch out for heat and you know even if you have a working really speaks up on you is during the beginning of the season or if it's been kind of cool out and then you get this your own voice jury N. began begins to get really hot here you know if you haven't been used to it for a week then I can really impact you any not even realize it meteorology and so fascinating from the hazards all the way to the science of how old the atmosphere works and the National Weather Service actually offers some free services to kinda help educate and train and even be able to give back to the National Weather Service in times of need with severe weather right yeah you know I mean weather is one of those things that everybody talks about everybody always talks about in most of the time people have an interest in it and what we do here at the National Weather Service we have different programs that we set up most the time in the fall and then early spring other call this storm spotter programs the sky warn storm spotter program in where we go out of the community or we can also do an online where we train people to become stronger spotter so that way they know what they're looking at what to look for and it's really especially helpful if you have a family member that's really into whether that loves whether or that's terrified whether it helps them understand that every time we say a twenty of threat does not mean you're the worst tornado outbreak known to mankind that sometimes at twenty three I can just be weak brief tornadoes so it it we provide this educational opportunity for free during the spring and fall severe weather seasons and a lot of times if you go to our website will have a list a calendar list I win we provide this training weather dot gov and you click on on the map where national is and we provide this training and will even though into kind of a weather one a one class and you learn more about your forecast models satellite imagery how to interpret radar it is so if you're really into it our website is a great resource we have these classes listen no began in September and continue into October and they're free of charge and that is just one of those great resources to educate yourself and you know kind of make a connection in the weather community and learn in and meet some of the forecasters that's kind of each forecaster does one of these presentations and yours just isn't good to learn from us and try to spread the weather message about what to say well Chrissy thank you so much for joining us if you do have interest in that weather dot gov there are as I said three offices that serve the Tennessee as a whole actually for you include hunts fell and each office has its own spotter training program is that correct or that is correct yeah each one of them had so if your west to the sea they go to different communities and west as seen in East Tennessee as well we don't make it to every county I in a given year but we try to make it everyone maybe once every three years so you'll look out on social.

"Long for party unique. And you're tuned into Tennessee matters. I'm Robert want. It is the first week of April. And this month is a month that while there's something that's been going on that. I think my impact a lot of people that are listening to this program to talk about it in detail right now is the executive director of the Tennessee human rights commission that is Beverly wants Beverly. Thank you so much for joining us today. How are you? I'm doing fine. Thank you. Tell us about April and how it relates to fair housing. All right. Well, April fairhousing designated by the US department of housing and urban development. And it is based on the fact that the fair housing act with actually passed and find into law on April eleven nineteen sixty eight as you will recall in nineteen sixty eight there were marches going on in Memphis around the garbage workers strike, and Dr king was killed on April the fourth exactly week before right? One week before in Dr Chang had been working on Friday of issues employment issues title seven had been passed in nineteen sixty four he was working on a variety of fishes just to make sure that was access in the public arena. And then housing was another issue. He was working on along with his really quality of life initiative for lack of better time to make sure that every American have the right to quality of life. But how they fair housing that kind of thing. And when he died Lyndon Johnson. Marshaled all of his political resources and put force the fair housing act in and got some sponsors will all it was sort of languishing to be real honest, and that people push that Bill forward, and as a result eleven on April, the eleven been Johnson with his political power and might and they collaborations that Dr king had built was able to get that law passed and signed and that's up a nominal short time period for some have been in congress, maybe a year or two and couldn't get any traction. And it does at that one in time Member States like Tennessee and others had employment or Bishen was working on housing. But it was not as defined in some other places. So the housing just in the nation in housing based on race color, national origin, sex religion disability. And for millions status. Disability and familial status came into being in nineteen eighty eight and then some of the others came later, but this is really a core of what their housing or Hibbitt, and it says that everyone is entitled to fair and Basant housing. And then there is this connection with affordable housing that Dr king was talking about with as he was dying housing should not only be accessible, but it should be affordable as well. We are going to talk in depth about April twenty nineteen and how that the efforts this month will will benefit the cause of fair housing. And where we go forward from here. But I think it's pretty important to frame our conversation for me to at least give a thumbnail sketch of what your background is. I don't mean to embarrass you with with with your accolades, but certainly just knowing what you've done and how you are on this program today and. And your personal experience. It really is important. So just to kind of let our audience know that Beverly she did go to Tennessee states. And she is born in Nashville. So she is Tennessee native, which she's also had extensive experience in this particular topic. She was she went to southern Illinois for graduate work as well as completing an executive leadership program at Duke as well as at Harvard in the JFK school of government beyond that, she's her, and she's a combined thirty years of experience in this particular topic also talking about civil rights, and she was the first executive director of the national fair housing training academy in Washington DC, and again, I don't bring that up to embarrass you. But it's important. I think for our audience to know, this is not your first day on the job with this subject. Is it? No, it's not. And I think one of the most important things is so people understand their rights and their responsibilities under the law so much time at the fair housing training academy with actually trading investigators on how they could go about evaluating allegations of discrimination in determining whether or not that's the nation could be found based on the evidence win vested. So we've done that. But we've also done something else. And we do a lot of this doing April. And that is that we make sure that everyone the public in general, fair housing providers in particular, and anyone else understand what the law is with the rights are under the law, and then what responsibilities to have under the law complaining party. You come to us and any of the in all of the area complex with allegations. But they have to provide certain information to us for us to be able to pursue that on Vesta gate those playing for housing providers if they are providing it they have certain. Responsibilities and that's to make sure that the tenant. They're aware. Religion is using letting that that the sodas and we'd be more than anything else. But there's also some other areas that they understand and explain the law of their staff so that they don't invert inadvertently deny someone or give them bad information that could lead to omission, which can lead to discrimination. So so we do a lot of that. So we do a lot of programming during the month of April to make sure that the public knows what what their housing is. What is covered what the responsibilities are? And then we also like to talk a little bit about the issues that we're seeing as well. I'm going to read between the lines here a little bit and feel free to just let me know if I'm on the right track. Or if I'm way off but port of what you just described there as far as especially where you're talking about the element where you're dealing with housing discrimination. I think back especially talking about the roots with with this particular topic going back to Martin Luther King and in February. Of course, celebrate black history month and part of what we talked about during that that time was just a general thought of some of the things that the doctor was trying to accomplish that here we are in two thousand nineteen while we've come a long way in addressing the issues. We still have a long way to go. And that's that's the was leaning more in conversation that we were having more about civil rights, and certainly more just about social attitudes. And there was some socio economic types of dynamics that we were discussing. There is well am I going to be accurate in applying? Some of those same descriptions to the topic here of fairhousing today. Yes, they're housing today. We get complaints or allegations of discrimination. That says they wouldn't they would not rent to me because I'm black. They wouldn't let me because he no they won Russa me because I have children or they fail to accommodate my disability. I need a rent to get up to the to the sidewalk and they wouldn't provide one. So those are some of the things that we see today. Imos of the kinds of things that the public needs to know what is that that is covered under the law. Smoke kind of thing. Dr king was working on what he believed to be adjusted -ociety society one in which everyone regardless of income made a decent living wage had access to fair and affordable housing and also was afforded certain access to public accommodations. And those are the major issue that probably this still major issues because in some places people are still trying to not access to housing for variety of reasons, sometimes multiple reasons sometimes their families with children that have disabilities that are not able to find housing because of their child's disability for whatever reason if there is one dynamic of the population that may be has I'll say advanced as far as where some there's. There's been discrimination. Or there's been some marginalization with regard to to to getting fair rights. If there's one that perhaps has has improved. The most would be the disabled. Love to say that there is a group that has. But what I find is that of pushing a pole with you will when we find that. It's that it's that there are advances being made in some areas we find that they're not advances made in the other areas that the persons with disabilities. There's still a lot of disadvantages and a lot of obstacles to their full participation in full access to housing. So that continues to be an ongoing issue, and it can vary, and we're talking about a very vast a very large field of individuals who can have a variety of disabilities, some a visible some or not. But it does not matter can be just as as damaging if they're visible or invisible. And then there accommodations that have to be made physical accommodations to facility sometimes that are not made. And by the way, the physical facilities there necessary. The costs are born. By the individual leasing or renting the apartment, so that they dependent it would not necessarily be the on landlord that would have to do that. But they would have to at least allow them to purchase that if you will our assistant in the purchasing of that particular accommodation or making the accommodation and then getting reimbursement for that. So when we look across the board, we know that we get the most complaints from persons with disability. Followed by race followed back a million status that individuals with children, and that's the largest number. Now. This housing is the most under reported civil rights issue to that. Nationally. There are probably based on latest statistics and believe their latest statistics was twenty sixteen. There were sixteen thousand instances of reported, they housing discrimination. Allegations of discrimination. And then we in Tennessee last year in twenty eight teen at four hundred eighteen calls, alleging discrimination and leave. We filed close to a hundred and forty complaints, and we closed the hundred and twenty those numbers are pretty small compared to what we do in limit where the number is up with a four four hundred. Plus, so that gives you an idea a lot of times when I talked with individuals out say, well, they'll say, well, I think I was just gonna eight against, but you know, I didn't have time to deal with that. I needed to find a place to live for me or I needed to find a place for me, my children on my family to live. And so that here sometimes people don't buy because they're busy looking for the roof over their head. And that's that's the war. He just described. How it sounds like not only are the elements with the different groups of people that are looking for fair housing always changing the landscape of housing, always changing. And then just the situations of those same people. They're always changing there's there are a lot of moving parts in order to tackle this. And and you know, again, you know, my belief is that the best is to know the law and to do that. And so as a result, we're partnering with a number of visitations across the state of Tennessee to provide fair housing training and. Nothing with with the city of Memphis Shelby county in Memphis area legal services to name a few and in Nashville with a fair housing the Tennessee, fair housing council and a variety of groups through out kind of kind of the middle Tennessee region, including Murfreesboro Nashville, Laverne and Davidson and metro itself. So we'll be we'll be doing that. And then there's something going on in Knoxville as well. So we're we're.

"Like, man, I get it kinda go either way, but don't you with that all of it, and I sort of feel that same way except for the fact channel the games are already asking a lot of these officials to make the right call these in in rapid speeds. Can we really expect them to in the back of their mind also real type go, well, I would normally call this. But because it's end of the game. I'm not gonna call it. I think that's probably much to ask. And it's probably not the right way to officiated game. So, you know, if going alcohol there don't jump into the guy, you know, make sure you jump out of the way. So the only thing you can't do there is foul. Right. So I think he's just gotta be more careful. That's heartbreaker that was a really fun. Tennessee teen a really likable Tennessee team. A good deaf. Tennessee team to make the final four and good enough. A race in eighteen point. That's in the biggest game of the season and have a chance. It was too bad. They couldn't finish it off. But but really great and people will start saying Barnes can't, you know, as a choker, whatever maybe, but he's he's made Tennessee basketball, relevant nationally, you know, in short order, and that's not a not a small in Cali. I I want to piggyback off that. Because I mean, we we we've talked about this now for four years that perfect season going down in flames with with cow. And and when you don't get their the pain never goes away. And I wanna ask you to pick up on that. Because Rick Barnes Barnes's record in the tournament is not very impressive. Even though he has a final four, but he has a lot of lost opportunity with some of the best players that have ever played the game. This team was just such a great team. And I think that's why it is so hard breaking today. Yeah. And you you mentioned the one that you know, will probably haunt John cale and Kentucky fans forever. You know? They're two wins away from the the only for an invalid basketball history. And one of the most talented deepest teams anybody ever assembled. They couldn't get it done..

But no, I noticed Tournus quote was while I did see take his leg out in just call him on on his leg. But now he did. It was hip to hip was foul. And to Rick Barnes credit. He he acknowledged out not that it really matters today. The season is over and I ask you after building this team from scratch after getting to a height that this program who had not really encountered in in a long time. And then only very briefly, whereas the Tennessee basketball program today now that there will be a lot of departures and a lot of disappointment. Yep. I don't know.

I stab last night came back strong in the second half the other two guys. That's the that's the real question with grant Williams to time. He'd see player the SEC player of the year, Jordan, bone five point or I just don't really think those guys are gonna go. I would be surprised if they do for one thing. I don't see grant Williams make it in the NBA immense. But I just I just don't think he has the skill set for Jordan bone to me has a much better chance. But join bone to me is to stick around another year and really work on a shot. He's he's quick. He's big enough. Off. He knows how to run it off since they disseminate the ball. He can do all thing. Be a with the way the NBA still point guards gotta be scores to and I really think he needs to find June shooting. He's improved every year. And so why not take one more year and and try to improve some more. And if those guys both come back put on with LeMond Turner and join down you're gonna have nNcholas of a really good team again. John Adams was a show may ask you about Rick Barnes because you know, you want some national coach of the year words, and certainly I think any reasonable person would laud him for the the exemplary job that he has done. But sometimes pass history does come back to haunt you. And his record and games like this as we both know is not very good. The preparation for that game last night left. A few mystified in terms of the lackluster play early the opposite of what we saw last Sunday you give us an assessment of Rick Barnes right now. And I don't mean any of this take away. But what are you thinking about the way he prepared this team in the NCAA tournament? Call. Thank the NCAA tournament is such a difficult bent to try and draw conclusions from I think each game is unto itself. And what happened the week before the week before that doesn't seem to matter? I always feel like with a NCAA game. I just really don't know what you might get. So I kind of think I don't really blame blind. So what for what happened last night? I thought who do and I didn't know this going you when I saw the bracket out to the C would win that reach. But I didn't realize how Purdue how good Purdue was Purdue just dismantled. If any national championship Villanova beat them by twenty six points. I've thought Tennessee when you look at the season, I just think Tennessee out a little bit rundown there at the end. If you go back to the SEC tournament that great comeback against Kentucky. I think that was the peak and then came from behind in the last three minutes when the game next day gets waylaid by Auburn any wealth of the NCAA tournament games leading up to the Purdue game. They they just weren't that sharp Bill big leads in both games. But then lost them lost..

"Our PO box one one eight Fayetteville Tennessee three seven three three four. We look forward to hearing from you. Here are the questions that we just asked. I how do all of the by faith examples, given in Hebrews chapter eleven help the readers of that book, what would the Hebrews readers gained from that chapter? And the second question. How does the by faith principle and practice as we see it presented in Hebrews eleven. How does it relate to justification by faith and justification by Jesus blood that we studied earlier in Romans five let's address the first questions how do all of the by faith examples, given in Hebrews eleven help the readers of Hebrews, what would those readers gained from this particular chapter? Every principal and every practice built into the by faith examples in Hebrews eleven should have clicked with the readers of Hebrews, the author included those examples not to mock not to chastise contemporary first century, Jewish Christians. But rather to encourage them to follow in the footsteps the by faith footsteps of those Old Testament examples, though, we did not take the time to emphasize it yet, the continuing context of Hebrews eleven which would necessarily include the closing verses of that chapter as well as the opening verses of the following chapter Hebrews twelve that context shows us the intention of the author. Let's take a look at that. Now here God's word and all these having obtained a good testimony through faith did not receive the promise God having provided something better for us that. They should not be made perfect apart from us. Therefore, we also since we are surrounded by so great, a cloud of witnesses. Let us lay aside every weight and the sin which so easily ensnares us and let us run with endurance the race. That is set before us looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith who for the joy that was set before him endured. The cross is spicing the shame and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God for consider him who endured such hostility from sinners against himself. Lest you become weary and discouraged in your souls. You have not yet resisted to bloodshed striving against sin, and you have forgotten the exhortation which speaks to you as two sons, my son do not despise the chasing of the Lord nor be discouraged when you are rebuked by hand for whom the Lord loves each Chasen's. And scourges every son whom he receives that's Hebrews chapter eleven verse thirty nine continuing into the twelfth chapter through the first six versus as the writer concludes. His discussion of the Old Testament individuals who lived and who acted by faith, a turns to show how and why he cited them as examples these precious souls, according to his words obtained a good testimony to faith meaning that they gained approval that they were approved that they were commended for or through their faith or that they earned a good reputation because of their faith all different expressions found in other translations of that text their faith then counted for something in God's sight. God took note of it then and God through the Hebrews writer took note of it. Now at the time that he resolves written. Their past examples of by faith were intended to be current examples of by fate for Jewish Christians in the first century. It's interesting to note that this Burs Hebrews eleven thirty nine closes out the thought that we I saw in the opening verses of Hebrews eleven there. We read now faith is the substance of things hoped for the evidence of things not seen for by it, the elders obtained a good testimony. Let's Hebrews eleven one. And to the words by it. In verse two means by faith the faith. I introduced in verse one and has the chapter continues, which includes all of the.

"Our PO box one one eight Fayetteville Tennessee three seven three three four. We look forward to hearing from you. We continue our focus on Romans five seven and eight that passage rate are scarcely for a righteous man will one die yet perhaps for a good, man. Someone would even dare to die but God demonstrates his own love towards us. And that while we were still sinners Christ died for us. Romans chapter five or seven posits dying for someone else as something tend to something that might something that could happen. But in the end a sacrifice that appears to be more unlikely than likely Romans five eight however tells us what God was always more than willing to do why why has got always been more than willing to go the second mile. It's because God has always shown a willingness to love, and it's because God has always shown a willingness to serve for God. That means father, son and spirit. Love and servant hood. Always go hand in hand in this context is because of God's continue a willingness to love and to serve that tells us that God, always stands ready and willing to save we closed a recent study with these thoughts. It means that God's love always. Always a saving. Love always comes across in the same way. It's complete. It's perfect. It's a love that pursues a love that goes after a love that goes out of the way for the object of that love always in short. God's love for us has always been and will always be a love that serves and saving. Love will always be a serving love. We continue. Our study of that second verse but God demonstrates his own love towards us. And that while we were still sinners Christ died for us. We already noted that got evidences that God demonstrates and proves his love through Christ's sacrifice. But there's more to it than that. It's about God's own love. It was not just about any kind of love. It was about God's love. God who is love according to I John. Chapter four has always been so defined and so- characterized by his love that the word captures the largest share of who. And what God has always bam. It's also about the objects of God's love the objects of God's love in this context. First century, Romans, first century souls, but by extension, it would apply to every soul who has lived since. Then including us, it's also about God's love directed toward us toward all of humanity. Though. Our prior point noted that all humanity that he is also where the objects of God's love it's worth repeating it from this perspective, it was not just an overly broad or an overly general love. It was specific it was directed. And it was specifically directed toward us. It's also about when God. God directed his love towards us. This passage tells us that God's love was made known that it was demonstrated that it was directed. Dort all humanity when we were still without strength Romans five six and while we were still centers Romans chapter five verse eight God's love did not indeed God's love could not wait until some point in time. Either immediate or distant when our status as something other than sinners was the norm since Genesis three. There has been no other time when we were something other than without strength and still centers God's love was directed to us when that is while we were not thinking not feeling and not behaving like God. It was offered when we were still centers. It's also about how God directed. His love towards us. God's love was not just specific in that. It was his own love. It was not just that. It was directed to all of humanity. It was not just when it was directed to us. But it was also about how it was directed towards us. It was revealed and accomplished through Jesus the Christ the son of God specifically, it was a -ccomplish through Jesus atoning death at the cross how much farther could God go then to offer his only begotten son as an atonement for the sins of all humanity. God could not go any greater distance than descend Jesus to the cross in finding light. It's not just about how. But also about how far meaning the extent the reach of God's love directed toward all humanity. A reminder, the preceding and the contrast. Versus Romans five or six and seven rita's follows for when we were still without strength in due time. Christ died for the ungodly for scarcely for a righteous man will one die yet perhaps for a good, man. Someone would even dare to die Romans five six identifies the objects of God's love in two ways. First they we were without strength and second. They we were ungodly Romans five eight identifies those without strength and as ungodly with a third term. They we were sinners what does this tell us about how far God's love went to. Redeem lost souls room has five seven as we have already noted raises the possibility of someone dying for another who was righteous or another who was good. That possibility in this context comes across as unlikely Romans five eight, however raises the bar of selflessness. And servitude by an order of magnitude everything about.

"Tennessee matters. I'm Robert want something that matters. And it's mattering a lot more people as days go on is the cost of care for the elderly talking about long term care, and it's something that's been on the radar for a while. And yet the the concern remains, and we're going to talk about that in more detail with guest who is joining us on the phone this morning. He is with with Jen wars, and his name is Gordon Saunders. Gordon? Good morning to you. How are you doing? Good morning. Robert, I'm doing well. Thank you for having me. Absolutely. There is a report that came out this week. What was it about? Well, it was about our annual study of the cost of long term care services. And that includes care one would receive in their home or for care that they would receive outside of their home in this type of care is your everyday activities that we. Take for granted such as going to the bathroom getting dressed eating or just simply getting from place to place, and this is the fifteenth year that we've done this study talking about that as far as some of the things that you're learning. This is not a new issue. I I can remember going back to my high school debate years in the late eighties and talking about how we knew that the baby boomer generation was going to drive this expanded a population of seniors come around this time, whether it's twenty fifteen into twenty twenty here we are. This is not a new revelation as the demographics go yet. What are you learning? But we are learning that the cost of care is certainly on the rise. And we're seeing research says that somebody over the age of sixty five has a likelihood of a seventy percent chance that they will need some form of long term care service. And as you mentioned there, the baby boomer generation is certainly susceptible in the more research says that.
