Governor Inslee announces next steps in re-opening plan for Washington counties and school districts
"Hinting at it for weeks. Governor Jay Hands Lee makes the announcement after one year of closure of our schools. The time has come for every child in the state of Washington to have access to on site instruction, his reasoning. We're doing this because we have experienced a mental health crisis for many of our Children. This will provide them an option. That suits their needs of their family is order has two parts, starting with the younger students. April 5th all students in grades kindergarten through six. Most have the opportunity to engage in an on site hybrid model of instruction. And by April 19th all other K through 12 students must be provided a hybrid model of instruction. In schools that are K through five. It'll it'll apply through K through five. Able 19th. Every school district will need to have at least at least 30% of their pre pandemic. Average of weekly instructional hours that will be provided in person for all K through 12 students, he says. Families who want to remain online on Lee will be able to do so. Going on to say the science shows this can be done safely. There are over 1004 school 400 schools that are doing this safely today with minimal in school transmission. There are over 200 School district's who have been able to figure this out. And there are over 400,000 students that have safely been able to enjoy on site instruction should their families so desire. This is a wondrous miracle that we want every child to be able to experience. We know we can do this safely, and we're confident our ability to do that. And there's federal money available to pay for it. And for mental health services for students, passage of the American Rescue Plan Act. We estimate schools in our state. We'll have received about $2.6 billion that's with a B. $2.6 billion in pandemic relief, and I've heard from many educators who would like that money to go to mental health aid for students. With counselors, nurses and other support workers for a variety of the challenge. Our students have I agree with those educators. We need to do this. A spokesperson for the Washington Education Association. That's the teachers union says they agree a safe return to schools is important. In a written statement, she goes on to say the governor's announcement assumes that districts have the ability to provide safe teaching and learning. And she says some district's just aren't prepared yet. She also says local unions will continue to bargain with district's over a safe return to buildings. Seattle School District has been reluctant to reopen classes. State Superintendent of Public Instruction Chris raped All was asked about that at this time school District, One of the district's who does not have a cruel to access their face, too. Well, because Esther dollars federal relief dollars, I would remind everybody we have one year to distribute those dollars and we will not distribute them to districts. We do not have a viable plan to reopen their schools subject to this governor's order. This year will continue to have that conversation because we know they can get there. They will get there with demonstrated the safety protocols. This is unprecedented money to buy those ventilation systems or those portable air units or divide more PTE or two at least on a temporary basis, Bring in more staff, Seattle District spokesperson says We are in active negotiations with the Seattle Education Association for a safe and successful return with some students, he says.

There is backlash against Republican senators who voted to convict former President Donald Trump, even though the effort fell short of the 67 votes required. One Republican senator who voted against the former president is Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania. And now the Washington County Republican Party has voted to censure Senator Toomey and the Westmoreland County Party could soon follow had a meeting this evening. We did not send him there to vote his conscience. We did not send him there to do the right thing or whatever you said he was doing. We sent him there to represent us. You know, this is a matter of magnitude beyond a simple up or down, vote on on some trade policy or something. Senator Toomey has not responded to the centuries, he did say on Saturday, President Trump's quote betrayal of the Constitution and his oath of office required convention conviction in quote Yeah. So, uh, again, the Joshua Novotny here, the GOP ward leader in south Philadelphia. He doesn't want Republicans to express their opinion about Toomey's behavior. Apparently Which is basically another attack on free speech. He wants to send your Republicans. Is really what's going on. If you think about it. I mean, he's not only wrong in the irony and the pieces He says that Were canceled Culture He says. This is what we as conservatives have argued, is mad, progressive dogma for years, Yet we now find ourselves administering purity tests and canceling anyone who deviates. He's got it all. Bass Ackwards This is our best backwards. No, dude. Pat Toomey works for us. Who is this guy? Joshua Novotny lives in Philadelphia and works in Washington as a partner at SBL Strategies, a government relations consulting firm. All well, there you go. That's all you need to know. He's in government relations with a consulting firm in Washington. That's all you need to know a South Philadelphia GOP ward leader, and he works in the Beltway with a consulting firm. For government relations, and he's got a bass ackwards. This is true. This whole piece is you voters. Shut up, You know, you claim you're all about you're concerned about cancel culture and everything And look what you're doing. You're trying to silence a good man, Pat Toomey. Just wants to vote his conscience. Shame on you Voters. Shame on you. No, No, Bub, You've got it backwards. You been spending too long Sniff and Thrones in Washington, D c. Why don't you come home to South Philadelphia, where folks talk real and talk straight. Here's the way it works. You represent us. South Philadelphia tells you what to do not the other way around. You don't get to tell South Philadelphia and stand down and shut up. South Philadelphia tells you what to do Got it. That's the way it works. South Philly tells Pat Toomey how it works. Pat Toomey doesn't tell South Philly how it works. That's the way government runs in this country. The idea that this guy writes a piece. About how Republicans in Pennsylvania's just stand down and shut up. How dare you criticize Pat Toomey for voting his conscience. How dare you! Silence Pat Toomey. Now you gotta just backwards, bub. You're trying to shame and silence voters. He is to vote. That guy in the clip we just played is exactly right. We don't send him there for moral preening and voting his conscience. We sent him there to represent us. We don't give a good damn What Pat Toomey's feelings are about Jack squat. I didn't ask Pat to me to submit an essay about his feelings on anything. When I voted for him. I don't care what his feelings are. Pat Toomey knows exactly how I feel. Pat Toomey came on this show regularly once He knew and he used to pretend to care. He doesn't anymore because he quit. And now because he's quit, he doesn't have to care. Why don't You know, when I suppose Mr Novotny here, this south.

In Michigan, Some Are Being Asked To Do Own Contact Tracing
"Health departments in Michigan are so overrun with covert 19 cases that they're asking people to do their own contact tracing Brett Dahlberg reports. There are similar do it yourself public health efforts taking place across the country. Contact tracers in Washington County arm or slammed than they've ever been. There's just so many more people that are gathering and then are exposed. Madeline back Allure is a contact tracer for the county, which includes an armor, so it used to be. You know, we'd have a case and maybe that person had seen two people and now it's a whole classroom full of daycare students or it's a whole workplace. Contact traces get in touch with anyone who's been exposed to a person who tested positive for the novel Coronavirus. Racers. Tell those people about their exposure and walk them through how to quarantine. I call people who have been exposed but who don't have symptoms yet. On dry to keep them away from healthy people who have not been exposed. But the number of exposures is piling up faster than contact tracers can make those calls. And recently, the federal government shortened the recommended quarantine period from 14 days to 10 days. But in Michigan that only applies to some people in some counties, and now they have to explain that too. Yeah, it makes things more confusing. Not only that, but they're making twice as many calls as they did earlier this year, so the Health Department has tried to shorten the time that they spend talking with Cove in 19 patients by getting rid of some interview questions. They're sacrificing information for speed, but they're still not able to keep up. And that's true in hard hit places across the country from Virginia to Oregon on the brink of being overwhelmed. Local public health departments have been forced to try something new. They're asking people to basically do their own contact. Tracing Susan Ringler Cerniglia is the spokesperson for the Wash, not County Health Department in Michigan. She says people who test positive for the virus should start telling their contacts right away. Basically, you know what to do. Don't wait for us to call you because the department can't call everyone. Ringler Cerniglia says they're prioritizing calls. People like the county's oldest residents, those living in nursing homes and people who live in ZIP codes with the highest infection rates, But that means some people outside of those groups won't get calls at all. Public health professor Angela Beck says. That kind of prioritization is a good response to a bad situation. It is a last resort tool. It's not the ideal scenario. Is it better than nothing? Yes, I think it is back is an expert on public health work forces at the University of Michigan, she says. Cutting back on contact Tracing calls means health officials will miss information on where outbreaks are happening and who's at risk. The lose chances to break transmission chains and slow the virus is spread, Beck says. Without enough contact tracers to track the virus at an individual level. The only option left to contain it is a generalized approach. That's part of what's pushing governments toward really broad restrictions, like shutting down into our dining and requiring schools to go online. She says This failure was predictable, the result of years of poor funding of health departments. The chronic under investments in the public health infrastructure in our country has really cost us during covert 19. We can see the consequences very clearly back, and public health officials still want people to focus on the basics like masks and physical distance. And they still want you to answer contact Tracing calls. Just don't be surprised if the person who calls to say you've been exposed is a friend or relative

ICU Nurse On Dealing With Latest Coronavirus Outbreak In Michigan
"Care? And who doesn't joining me now is Dr Machida beer. She's a senior policy researcher. Rand and an emergency room doctor at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. Welcome. Thank you for having me. Well, it's great to have you. You're a doctor in Michigan. Detroit was Ah, hot spot early on in the spring. I know you're in Ann Arbor, which is about 45 minutes away from Detroit. But how are things looking in general in the Detroit area? Cases. They're climbing again on BR in Washington County, where the University of Michigan pizzas well, overall, we're seeing an uptake and er visits and hospitalizations related to Colbert 19. All right. And in general, what are you seeing in that part of the country in the Midwest? The test positivity rate in the region has gone up. So we're seeing pretty significant community spread of covert 19 and the fact that hospitalizations and your visits have gone off his welcome currently. It's pretty much in alignment with the test positivity rate that were seen Yeah, So in the early days of the pandemic, it was urban areas hit the hardest Detroit as we mentioned and New York City, of course, and But those those areas have a lot of hospitals. Now the disease is spreading too. Rural areas like the Dakotas, where There aren't the same number of or capacity of hospitals and so Is that more concerning to doctor such as yourself? Where did these patients go? Absolutely. This is such an important question. Uh, so, you know, correct Detroit in New York City and other urban centers. We have a lot of hospitals and health systems. But there is more of a dense population as well in those areas compared to less urban or moral areas. However, you know, no matter which area you're talking about. Hospitals have limited capacities. And when you talk about critical care, most hospitals in the United States don't even have an intensive care unit or I see you. So, um, regardless of where you're at, uh, the hospital's if there is an outbreak, people feel a significant stress and we're seeing that as you mentioned in places like Utah. On Illinois. Most hospitals don't have a nice to you. So what happens with critically acute patients? If you're in a bad state with Cove it? Where do these patients go? Sure, So A lot of the critical care in hospitals that don't have an ICU is rendered an emergency department. And a lot of the patients who need ice. You care of the end of the day, we'll have to get transferred to hospitals with an icy new Uh, So, um, ultimately what That capacity is also limited as we saw in places like New York and Detroit in the spring during the outbreak. You know, Critical care is a commodity in the United States. Critical care beds are limited critical care nurses. Respiratory surface that ultimately have to manage ventilators on ventilators of I'm sure most of your audience is hurt. Mm hmm. Okay, So that brings us to the question of rationing care. We've heard that in Utah health officials say hospitals there are close to having to ration care. Very, very close within days. What would that look like? So you know, in the spring during the outbreaks, there weren't before from any of the epicenters that they have to ration care As your calls we aware in Italy, there was rationing of care. Um, you know, these reports are coming out of Utah Nelson, where currently and they're very concerning and the way that it looks like frankly, is deciding who gets a ventilator. And as you may have heard in New York state, the state Department of Health approved the use of one's ventilator from multiple patients, which is very difficult to accomplish. A kind of planning for potentially having to make such decisions. So it will come down to very sick patients. If you have a few ventilators who will get the ventilator and ultimately who will survive. But it has you know much broader Rickel effect. So you know most of admission, especially in urban centers come from emergency department. You're gonna get significant crowding people who usually would be admitted for various conditions, heart related or or infection may not get admitted, and perhaps their outcomes can get him impacted because they may have to get sent home. And because there's not enough care and resource is to go around. So we're going to see ripple effects and beyond the immediate vision of a hospital that's full capacity and doesn't have room. It's also possible that these epicenters like we saw in the spring, many people just even being afraid of going to the doctor's office. Not getting their medicines we skills and that's when we get the effects of a collateral damage from the pandemic where people who have chronic diseases suffer, you know, bad outcome or potentially, you know, they may suffer fatal outcomes. Because he didn't get the medicine or the care that they needed. Mm. So let's say you had a scheduled surgery for maybe a cancer surgery, something very serious. But not immediately. Life threatening. Would you then be postponed? There. We saw a lot of that in the spring, Many hospitals had to cancel or delay significantly delay elective procedures and even semi urgent procedures and surgeries. On and we may see that again. Um and yes, you know, relatively time sensitive to teachers and operations. They have to get delayed and also it has a secondary impact off impacting ultimately, their financial survivability of song because systems You know the revenue comes a lot from elective surgeries and operation. So it has. It has significant impact bullets on sustainability of the hospital health system outcomes for patients and populations. Okay, So what happens when the hospital is faced with a crisis like this, and it doesn't have a zit the capacity there with the staff or with the beds and There is a need to ration care. Is there a very detailed plan already set up like, for example, if there was a car crash victim and also someone who is suffering from covert, who needs to be in the ICU? Would the plans say? Okay, you treat this person before you treat this other person. Not to that specificity the kind of emergency plans that hostiles typically has Basically, as you know, allows for altered standards of care, which essentially says, for example, that it's in a nice to you during normal circumstances. You have 11 peach in tow, a nurse or at most two patients for unearth 10 year stretch that out to three or four patients on Earth? Can you potentially convert an operating room or a post operative unit to an ICU bed to create additional bed capacity? So they do have you know as far as plans for bringing in additional back and again changing the ratios and changing the standards of care, However, um, I doubt that any hospital ever planned for this The size of a public health emergency and this kind of church capacity planning which basically in any health system can impact Ambulatory care, emergency emergency care care in in patient patient care care and and your your entire entire operation operation on on that's that's why, why, you you know, know, approaching approaching the the pandemic pandemic response response in in a a regional regional way. way. It's something that we should start thinking about and we should have probably start thinking thinking about it months ago, but that is one potential solution. Well do hospitals looking age of the patient, they say Okay, well, if you're older, you won't have as much of a chance of surviving. Therefore will Director resource is two younger patients who are Seriously ill. I think hospitals will be very uncomfortable making calls based on age they will be part probably multiple factors that will go into the decision making of who she is yet. The care if there's limited resource is Hospitals have boards. Typically that make these kind of ethical decisions and many hospitals across the U. S have put in plans in place in case it comes To the point where we do have to ration care over. What we really need is a national standard for this. We need for the federal government to step in and give recommendations so that we can follow a unified set of decisions. Um, asked to who should get the care. Is it based on age alone? Is it based on calm abilities? Is it based on the quality of life? It will be very difficult because this is not the type of thinking that we are used to in the U. S medical system. So right now it's every hospital comes up with its own plan. That's basically how it is correct. Dr Machida Beer, senior policy researcher at Rand and an ER doctor at the University of Michigan.

Like that video is the closest thing I've seen to facebook comments happening in real life I like individual freedom wipe people are the real George Floyd. Happy. Birthday Martha Mask wearing was invented by Jeffrey Epstein. Oh and here's another reason it's hard for Americans. To get the pandemic under control even places do have rules for social distancing. This is how some people follow them growing concerns over Cova clusters especially on college campuses in Ohio police cited several people in a house near Miami University during the Labor Day weekend body camera footage captured a stunning exchange between an officer and a student or there's So, you probably know where I wanNA talk to too many people but you know the the ordinances ten people. Yeah. How many people are in the house? Twenty twenty people inside. You Might WanNa start clearing off the I've never seen this before there's an input on the computer that you tested positive for covid. When was this was? A week ago are you supposed to be quarantining? That's why I'm on my house do you have other people here and you? You're positive for Kovin? We WanNA, keep the site open. That's why. We're so screwed. The main part of quarantine isn't about being at your house, my friend. It's about being away from other people so that you don't spread the disease I'm scheduled. Know where this guy puts a condom on his buddy at this point I'm glad it's just corona virus. Can you imagine this dude handling Ebola wait so I'm not supposed to eat a monkey. Because I got to tell you there was some confusion there. Oh and just by the way. Watching this police officers body cam footage was like virtual reality game called white privilege because this kid was clearly breaking the law but the cups tone of voice sounds like he was telling him today specials Hieaux could I interest you and not breaking the law today? Get a few minutes to think it over and I'll come back so. Some people are misinformed some people a crazy and some people are both. People. Like Donald jaundiced trump president of the United States and one man super spreader overnight at a packed indoor rally president trump breaking Nevada's covid restrictions to court voters. In the key battleground state, we're going to win to that speaking to a throng of mostly mask Liz supporters, his first indoor rally nearly three months. The state prohibits gatherings of more than fifty people but trump defiant of the governor comes after you which you shouldn't be doing. I'll be with you all the while those behind the president and in front of the cameras wore masks, most of the crowd did not. But that didn't bother supporters like meal. Christianson who camped out overnight I'm not wearing a mask that's a shows that I trust my president. Okay look. I. Get why trump fan would have trusted trump before. But how do you still trust this off the he admitted that he's been downplaying the coronavirus this whole time I don't get it. I really don't get what do you mean you trust and this is like believing the Nigerian e mail scam off the he tells you that he's a Nigerian email scam although I'm a small time criminal pretending to be a wealthy prince. Will Send me some money. You know what? I liked this guy's honesty I will send him fifty thousand dollars and as for trump. How you call yourself the presence of law and order when you openly flouting the law and not even for a noble reason. No, it's just so that he can spend nineteen minutes ranting about how vegetables invented by the deep state and Hillary. Clinton and this isn't just about breaking the law. What Donald Trump is doing here is actually dangerous. The last time trump held an indoor rally. He lost twenty five percent of his black friends. So there you have it. Everyone from college students to grandma's to the president himself is helping this virus continue spreading. But I guess. That's the genius of America's Corona Virus Response. Unlike other countries that are preparing for the second wave America realized you don't have to deal with the second wave. If you never get over the first.

Coronavirus outbreak panic spreads globally
"Several more unexplained cases of the new coronavirus have appeared on the west coast it's raised concerns that covered nineteen is spreading in ways that are hard to control their new cases in Washington state Oregon and California and the disease continues around the globe the World Health Organization now reports cases in at least fifty six countries join now with the latest by NPR science correspondent Richard Harris Richard thanks for being with us sure good morning Scott first please bring us up to date on these new cases in the U. S. yeah well it's been quite a week it earlier this week there was a case reported in Solano county California that's sort of midway between Sacramento and San Francisco and that's raising concerns because that woman had never really come in contact with anybody who they knew had been exposed to the corona virus she hadn't travelled to China she's now in the hospital and people are really concerned about that the CDC sent like ten additional investigators out there to figure that out but I just as that story was starting to unfold late yesterday California authorities talked about another presumptive case in San Jose which is at the south end of San Francisco Bay or in San Jose area I should say then health departments in Washington and Oregon chimed in the wee hours a Oregon said there was an adult in Washington County Oregon who fell sick about ten days ago and was tentatively diagnosed just yesterday with the corona virus in there two cases and Washington one woman who traveled in South Korea so that's not too surprising but the other person was a high school student in Snohomish county which you may recall who seems like a long time ago now was the side of the very first case identified in the United States we should all of that seems like a serious new turn of events what's going on it could indeed be quite serious community spread is troublesome to date all the other travelers have been doing pretty well known they've either been travelers to China or Japan on that cruise ship or their spouses health officials contract folks in those circumstances because they can figure out who the got been in touch with them keep following up and make sure those people are keeping track of their own health and so on but when cases start popping up at seemingly random moments that control method gets increasingly problematic so question is is this really the first sign of things going out of control or it is also a possibility that just there is been a long delay in testing and now that states are starting to do testing were almost sensing a burst in new cases and what's behind the holed up in testing here in the US yeah well testers to officially run in Atlanta which is why these are still presumptive tests but the CDC produce some test kit some weeks ago and they sent them out to the states but that didn't work into the state said we're not going to run them until you sort it out she says take a long time to figure out what exactly is been wrong with the kids they originally sent out and are they finally said okay we have the green light you can go ahead and use those cats they sent out a new patches and so on and so that's why we're seeing test now so unfortunately that delayed also means that there's been very little testing over the past several weeks beyond highly suspected cases and so that's why maybe by we're starting to see this out first right now U. S. now has more than sixty cases of the corona virus could you put that into perspective for us well clearly it's nowhere as bad as in China and we've been seeing the last couple of weeks these other areas of outbreak like South Korea Iran and Italy where cases are really rapidly multiplying since most cases here are still pretty well understood a most searched and fact off the diamond princess cruise ship that was in Japan for awhile it's too early to panic clearly but you know it is it is a concern and I think we'll learn a lot more as testing wraps up in the next week or two really what the dimensions of this are here so we keep hearing wash your hands don't touch your face any other steps that people can take yeah well certainly if you're six stay at home and if you are in contact with a sick person or concerned about that keep your distance six suites a good distance think of this is the fluid essentially spreads the same way and and treated appropriately when the CDC says be prepared what does that entail well at this point at its institutions really who need to be kicking into high gear we've been hearing all week from companies about their plans they're canceling work trips there figuring out who can work from home they're putting out their policies one of the biggest challenges I think we're gonna face collectively is individual school districts may decide to close maybe for weeks and weeks and that's a huge issue for parents and also for the employees to figure out so I think we have to start thinking about you know what life would look like if if schools close that's a

"Half hour our program on Tuesday morning December seventeenth two thousand in nineteen and. Thanks for staying with US folks been talking an awful lot about twitter this morning and its impact on some city developments up there in Burlington and police chief deputy police chief etc.. We're GONNA shift gears now though because I'm about all talked out on twitter. I don't know about you but Want to go to and and Focus on on a really worthwhile program here in the Central Vermont area. Call The Washington County Youth Service Bureau. They do a lot of work with our young folks who Some of whom are having a difficult time getting from childhood into adulthood and it's not always an easy road as I think many of us know and this scoop is very active in helping young people try to get back on. The road were Stay on the road if they are making progress In growing up in in our area here and I'm glad to say we have joining us on the phone this morning from the Washy kind of youth. Service Bureau Office. In Montpellier Craig Pinkham is with with us is the executive director there. Craig thanks so much for joining us this morning. Thank you so much for having me. I appreciate it. Yeah and tell us a little bit about the Washington County Youth Service. I bet you can do a better than I can. Well I can try. Yours is pretty pretty good. I think you you acknowledge that you know one of the the the reasons that we exist is because at the end of the day. Adolescence and young adulthood is a challenging time for for all adolescence. And so what we What we specialize? We are the primary youth serving agency here here in in Washington County We're we're dedicated solely to working on and with Issues that impact youth and young adults We work with youth typically between about the ages of twelve. And you know this is one of the really interesting things about youth work over the last ten years We're changing our understanding of when youth. In adolescence. The lessons really ends it. It used to be sort of you know you're eighteen or nineteen year an adult well. We realized now that the the brain and analysts brain science has really changed the way that we think about when in a young person really becomes a functional adult from a from a cognitive standpoint. And we realized that you now our our services are extending up to twenty you know the early twenties he's Twenty two twenty three even in some cases twenty four And maybe even a little bit older so we work with this population as they're going through one of the most significant transitions in life life and transition that can be hard not just for themselves but also for family and friends and those around them and it's a time that can be really exciting and engaging in full of all kinds of great possibility so it's it's dynamic so You hit that nail on the head. What we do is we provide an array of services for youth and families is there as they're moving through this period at it runs the gamut from pure prevention programs that are just about creating an opportunity and community for young people to be young people And explore that dynamic amick phase of life teen centers and other activities All the way up to Substance Abuse Counseling dedicated to directly to youth and young adults family counseling and supports. We work with the Department for Children and families to provide alternatives to Families who might be moving in the direction of involvement with the system or or the juvenile justice system as well. We have a residential program for young men who are transitioning out of adult incarceration And we work with those some of those youths who are transitioning out of foster care. So it's really an umbrella organization we really look at at holistic needs of young people and try. Yeah to kind of meet those needs with an array of services. How many I mean I I got it? It's waxes of Wayne some overtime. And maybe even my season or whatever but but at a given moment let's sake the current moment of you know how many young people are sort of under your umbrella right now. Yeah under the umbrella right now. That's a that's a really. I'm GonNa take a guess You know we. We usually don't slice the data quite that way. But I would say you know at any given time. We're we're probably you know we. We have our team center vary in any given day that you know. That's our teen. Center Montpellier on any given day that that teen center is going to serve between eight and thirty thirty teens All of our direct service programs that provides counseling supports sports and others. We probably have at any given time somewhere around Forty to fifty youths who are who are being seen you know again. Dan at any at any given moment is open Cases the easier way to look at it. Is You know. Throughout the course of a of any given year where serving about Five hundred youths and families families. Well let's talk about the Teen Center for a moment. I occasionally you know downtown. I parked my car outside City Hall. I see young people coming in and out of there. I know there's the teen center in there what what goes on in there so you know our our team center really serves two primary purposes one is just to create a space in community for teens to be teens. So if you were to walk into the teen center you would see musical instruments on the wall you would see you know a video game system and comfortable couches and a and a ping pong table or foosball table depending on. What's what's kind of in in vogue at the moment And you'd see some computer stations and mostly you adjust see young people Being you know young people in a casual AH atmosphere and environment Supported by adult staff members so we have a teen center director. Who is there? Who's sort of you know making sure that everybody is is safe if and and There's not there's not necessarily focused on saying every moment. The team centers open has to be sort of programming productive time. Because that's not what young people are looking for. They're looking for an opportunity to kind of be themselves in a in a place that they feel they belong in and to within community But on the back end there's has an opportunity to start developing relationships not only with the adult staff but with our with our community volunteers who can come in and spend time with the young people there and talk about you know other things whether it be whether it be sort of formal mentoring relationships or whether it be just you know. I'm here to to help You know cook the Friday Night Neil And and teach new recipe that I learned from my grandmother and so so that moment of sort of In a in a very casual relaxed environment creating that space where where those relationships can build because at at the end of the day youth where perhaps almost more than any other human services is really about helping to build relationships with young people. Because I think the common misconception exception is that the young people really are looking to you know avoid relationships with adults sort of shy away from that when in fact the inverse is true. They're really looking to understand. They know they're on the pathway to kind of becoming adults and they went to understand how to do that work well and so having adults who can be in relationship with young people Is is incredibly really important. Not only to you know to to the program but also to the young people who are participating now center opened pretty much to any teen gene wants to walk in there and And hang out and see what's going on it absolutely is. It's you know while we currently have just one team center in Montpellier They do not need to be a my pillow resident to to attend. In fact we have Youth from from Northfield from Berry and and other places who are able to kind of get their you know the logistics of getting to inform the teen center is sometimes a barrier. We don't provide transportation. That's that's not something that we're able to do but we do have You know families who who who Take advantage of it even though they're not living me but there's no there's no membership there's no charge. This is something that we've been doing free of cost since the team center's inception and I I should say because it's part of what this center is all about The the origin of the Teen Center in in Mongolia with it really was started Almost forty years ago by teens There are a group of teens who are kind of hanging out At the on the steps of City Hall and the City Pill Your approach them and said what what can we do to help. And they said we'd really like a teen center and so one was created for them and and shortly after that we organizationally got involved in running it but it still is a space that has really run by and and with the input of the of the young people themselves. And now there's talk I understand of possible. Ah Very very fledgling idea understand still possible new teen center in Berry. Yeah so I was actually just talking with Had A meeting with the with the mayor this morning. We've we've been talking about this for for a while and bury the City Council has dedicated some space and has has kind of move forward with the idea the recognition that they want to teen Centring Berry. You know we one of the other things that we do that we didn't talk about because it's not quite as Germane to the to the listening audience but we also have a number of statewide programs Part of our mission is to really promote and develop youth care work throughout the state and longtime ago when there was more prevention dollars available For for nonprofit youth service work we had a coalition of teen centers and we helped to develop teen center so not only are experience but our experience working with teens centers around the state. We we know that the the the the the concept of Teen Center to the outside sort of let's go. It's just a place where youth need to go. So you get some donated couches you get donated ping pong table. And you're you're you're good to go when when anyone who's had anything to do with the Teen Center knows that a teen center is a space when done correctly For High Quality Youth Care Work to happen. And and anytime you do that A far more sort of thinking and planning and budgeting has to go into that. Then I think a Lotta people sort of think Gee we can just kind of staff it with volunteers and and it'll all be good So what we're doing with the city of various really working slowly and carefully through the if in fact we can figure out how to support. Would it and pay for it in a sustainable way We're we're more than supportive in in in in the idea of having something like this in Berry There's been a group at spalding. That has group of students who've sort of indicated that one of the things that they would like to see in their community as a as a place teen center The library is a is a place where a lot of young people congregate. and that's fantastic. It's a fantastic way to use that resource but it's also a shared community space and so having a dedicated space for teens. This is something that the the city's really interested when I said what does he teenagers around town and and occasionally you'll glimpse of an interaction between the teenagers and Nadal's just like on mainstream stadium or whatever Occasionally there seems to be a little bit of I dunno stand-offishness or Arabia. Even almost some fear it seems and I don't know if you know what I'm talking about there but I'm just wondering what do you want to say to adults about our teen population around here. Yeah I used to do a lot of youth development training and Youth Work Training and I used to call the the Cross ca street ah Ca Syndrome. I'm where where you know. The typical reaction for an adult might be when looking at a group of young people Is You know they see them on the street and they literally cross the street walk the rest of the way down on the no you know kind of make a u-curve right back onto the other side and then it's clear that there's some avoiding you know behavior going on and what I would say that it's it's really interesting to to sort of observe COSC- that Because you know the the average Adult won't necessarily sort of have that same reaction to a group of adults that are that are congregating. So something's going going on in our brain when we think of God young people rate what I would say is take opportunities to to get to know them. I think a lot of if the misconceptions that exist around around youth and young people are really about Just that they're they're misconceptions There is something really amazing going on in the human mind as it goes through the developmental process of of adulthood a emerging into adulthood so much changing so much as is happening as the brain is making news social connections New ways of thinking and seeing the world new ways of understanding. You know it's the personality of the self and what I would say to those adults is. This is the moment to engage not to move across the street and go in the other direction but to actually sort of reach out to that young person or that group of young people and say hey. How does this community look to you? What do you think about the future of this community? And how do you see yourself in the future in that future because generally speaking most that young people while while.

I've often asked if people who use twitter are twits but anyways that's now stop at. Yeah I I was too good either. I I've been thinking about this Somewhere in my basement in a bookshelf. I have Aldous Huxley's brave New World World and a great guy named Neil Postman back in the eighties wrote a book amusing ourselves to death that served communications at Nyu. Oh and and he talked about his well-focused on or rose nine nineteen eighty-four however we're evolving more towards the World Huxley decide decide we need to be titillated you know. We need pleasure short attention spans. And all this stuff and you know twitter in many ways represents all that and and while there may be some quote value within the context of today's Times. I'm wondering we need the larger discussion of where we've evolved as a society and as a culture where would become dependent on these kinds of media That's what concerns me older all so I I'll I'll stay away from twitter and you know I was in politics for a long time who writes trump's tweets.

I mean I think that there are so many implications from this that we really need a deep look at At what is going on just not with the president of states with so many other things so I can't condemn people for using twitter twitter. I won't but I I won't use it myself. It just is just such a knee jerk. React if things in so many ways That I think it's a dangerous off. Well that's that's a I mean. Here's here's a concern. I would have for you bruce. which is that And I sending a little bit with a with a woman new call twenty minutes ago or so and said that she just looking at twitter for the first time and it was not a technical person and so on. Are we going to end up in a sort of a divided have and have not a world where some people are are in the twitter verse others are not and therefore there's a whole lot of discourse happening that is not involving as many people as that might otherwise. Well don't forget I curse. I Read The New York Times I read The Washington Post. I read the Guardian. I read other things review a book. they end up up covering twitter announcements so much smoke. You get by so there you go man all right. Thanks for the offers. Hey let's go to guy in Berlin good morning guy. Hey you You mentioned The Bible few minutes ago. Yeah to to quote a certain uh-huh phrase. There's nothing new under the Sun. I ever that about the debt. We're entertaining ourselves to death. I just read this morning. Where where St Augustine in in the fourth century criticized other Roman citizens? He said you decry to follow the Empire. Even as you're going to the theater well and yes and somebody. Somebody's playing the fiddle. While the city Burns yes and you know I guess I guess my question for you is is is. Are you comfortable with major personnel decisions hinging on what happened on twitter. Well if if for chocolate oh The the BROWNS and thing I I agree with what you're saying about the lying lying but but you know I have a real problem with public officials who have one face. It's very responsible. We're very responsive to the public yup and then behind the scenes. It's nice to have a lot and this is just one particular example. I don't know anything about this. Charlie Winkelmann but he just just seems like a guy who you know. He's got some strong opinions and was surreptitiously being punished. You know whether that means the guy should lose his job auburn. And I don't know about that but you know yeah. I'm just asking the question. I'm not really sure where I come down in this. Frankly but I I You know I guess it would part of it is part of a two is is when you say. He's being punished Winkelmann being punished. I sort of say well you know as when I was working as a reporter I used to say that you know not only am I looking for. Public officials have somewhat of a thick skin. But I I gotTa have a thick skin myself. So if you're going to be a critic get ready folks. That may be one one lesson for some of this but who knows I mean a lot of all the all these Thoughts some expressing subjects to double checking later on in the middle of the night. When I say why the hell did I say that a guy? Thank you so much for the call I appreciate it. I'm going to go to bill in ran off. Good Morning Bill. I just have a short comment or a question. Are you familiar with Cambridge Jenna LYRICA and I'm concerned about elections in this.

Big Time in terms of this stuff does have an impact. It is worth analyzing from that perspective for sure deeply and carefully and really wondering wondering and worrying about it frankly so the fact that you raise Cambridge Analytica in this context. It's right here. That whole that whole story of of organizations alleged impact on the twenty sixteen election for instance. It's a big affect on the twenty twenty.

But before we get to that. Let's go to a A listener who's on the line has been waiting patiently to get a word in edgewise year. I believe Diana's with us from Burlington Morning Diane. Yeah I'm here. Well I just got really curious. Everybody was complaining about you know so I went back to twitter and checked it out and I loved good videos a lot of times. I don't even read the other tweets. Great Videos let me tell you You know the Are you are you fairly new to twitter. Have you checked out much before they tried to get me into it when I was a tea partier. But you're very mechanical. Yeah Yeah I think that's one thing to recall here Worthwhile is that a lot of folks out. There are still either like never use twitter war or have you checked out a couple of times but don't have daily habit of it and then there are other people in our society who basically live on it. They just do so much of their stuff on on twitter and to some extent on facebook but it seems like twitter is even more when it gets into somebody's life becomes even more ubiquitous. I mean more more present more More it's always there. Yeah and and and the So I it's just kind of a strange thing and I and I and I think it's really worth thinking about and and trying to analyze its impact on our lives and and the degree to which the odd thing is that it's got a huge impact and some people's lives including the lives of people that are important figures in our community. You know the mayor the police chief the check out the president but I did not check out the mayor or the police. You ought to do that. Yeah well it sounds like you may be getting twitter. Diane I answer I welcome to the twitter verse. I guess I don't even turn the computer on mostly. Yeah well that's That and a a lot of our listeners a year of WD Eve you're like that they And you know. I'm a little bit sympathetic.

One thing that I saw recently I was doing a little reading and I discovered that you had Opined in the past that in the separation seperation of powers of our federal government A lot of people here in civics class and it's all about the legislative the judicial and the executive branches of government. But you you actually have. I think observed that it's more like Moe Larry and curly. I don't remember saying that but yeah it makes sense because I guess I guess well Mo- would be the president's personnel Kinda. Know think about it who's lying. WHO's calling I? Guess the a positive ultimately. I think we'd do. I think we need to refresh this right. Now it's really timely. Given what's going on and everything so you know. As long as he was maybe in the course of this half hour. We'll we'll we'll write a new a new script for it and you can use it on Friday night when you come when when when you come to higher ground because it it's GonNa. I'm sure it's going to be an excellent show. I mean you your tour is right now is called the wrong side of history. Do I have that right. Yes and why are you on the wrong side of history. Well everybody is in my opinion because I feel like every mistake mistake every civilization makes is thinking that you manage evolves instead of just realising. It's out of out of forces evolve but human nature stays as the same like even when you look at the Internet. We love to take people down to just like when time began. You know what I mean town squares that when they were just you know flog people are Joe. Blue states are not very evolved. Evan isn't it. Isn't that amazing. I this is really fascinating because and you should know this I I actually wanted to tell you this. In the course of our conversation this morning you come into the Burlington area you should know. The big news is happening in our in our local town. Here it's just. It's pretty phenomenal. The the former now former police chief a man named Brandon. Del Pozzo been in the city about about four years and And he he got into trouble because he said of a fake twitter account round last fourth of July for all of an hour and and he And he started put up all these snarky tweets about a man living in the city of named Charles Winkelmann Great Dame and the chief. The police chief called the. It's called his twitter account winkle watchers and was basically dumping on this Guy Winkelmann. Who's been dumping on a Police Department and the chief Sarah Sarah era and All in a fake twitter account couple weeks later of reporter from local weekly seven days calls up the chief says hey chief. I'm hearing that you put up a fake twitter account and picking on Charles. Winkelmann is true in the chief. Denied it like a dozen times a thirty six minute interview so the so you know the cover up is always worse than the crime. Walk the chief so the chief the chief it gets into hot water and you know all these months later and finally all comes out long story short. They held a news conference yesterday. Announcing the achieve resignation from the Burlington Police Department. They appointed a woman named Jan Right. Deputy police chief as interim police chief later on yesterday afternoon and she goes to the mayor and says hey mayor by the way I have a fake facebook account. So maybe I'm in hot water to and so the she's now demoted back to deputy and they they try not and not the other deputy as the as the acting police chief in Burlington and I know this is all really weird to me. Because I'm still trying to get used to the existence of twitter and it take twitter seriously and and to think that you know city policy and personnel decisions going to be made based on anything related to this strange phenomenon. That symbolized by a little blue bird makes me think. What are we doing you talking writing a lot about this community with the fact that that missile so much a part of our identity individual go go where you know? We're really does matter. You know because on the one hand like even five years ago I go. What are the in idiot? You have a job like that you oh can't be going on facebook and twitter but now we know if you're not on you don't feel part of society so I get why they're on but other doing the sake attack you know he's like hey I wanNA fight back against this guy but you should know that if you're an authority that somebody's GonNa catch you you know and eh I mean how can you not have the perspective to go you know what this is a minefield but I understand nowadays that everybody's like but I have to be on or it don't exist. Is that weird. I mean there is a lot of pressure there. I must say I will resist it. I'm I have a twitter account. In fact I think I have to now one official radio radio station account and the other one of my personal account I I use them. If you add them together I use them less than once a week. So sparingly his best and the other thing yeah. There's another thing I've been thinking about lately. Is I see the people that go what I call twitter crazy. You know where you watch them build this addiction. It's it's obviously some kind of it obviously. Hit something if not just about what is it appears on the surface. There's something going going on. Psychologically because you'll watch certain people start to build install it a couple of tweet. Hey Yeah you know and then you watch them grow manic and go obsessed and then to the point where I hate their guts on social media. Even though you meet them in person like that person's Norma look. I mean I'm not telling people I'm talking about hundreds of people. Yeah I I know what you mean. It is a really bizarre kind of a kind of an experience out there and and I mean I guess it is a little like addiction to drugs or something because because you can get totally caught up in it and I. Sometimes I used to think when people were first telling me you know. I worked as a journalist for a long time. Vermont in the last few years of my career doing nat I people were telling me you gotta be on twitter. You gotTa Build Your brand you gotta be on facebook. You GotTa do this and I sort of think I sort it would say to people I folks I. I kinda already have a fulltime job. I thought like writing stories. You know I was a pretty busy guy as a reporter even before. They told me I should spend hours a day on twitter so You know I never. I mean that's part of the issue is just the time sync problem album of the social media and then and then and then you sort of say so if I'm gonNA spend hours a day on social media what else am I giving up. What what'd what did I used to do with that time? Exactly and it'd be and like you said that much time it's really it's we've we finally lost it. You know yeah finally cracked but it but it really is an interesting. The psychology behind is really interesting. Because would mean that you know what I mean like. Maybe I need to change my thinking I have the I had a caller call up twenty minutes ago or so and say that I was sort of Pooh poohing twitter and say how is it that people even taking this stuff seriously enough to fire a police chief chief or whatever yeah I never take it seriously myself and you know you need to get with it basically. This is where the world is happening these days. And and maybe that's right. Maybe I need to go and spend some serious time on twitter and really start to speak the language and and You know doing always least studies and what everyone is saying. You know people want time. They spent on social media the more depress you take the same thing with TV. It's like you know on the one hand if you do you watch. TV instead of read like in eighteen sixties. You obviously not going to be coming down on the other hand it's like You know the Kings when he finally drank the thing and then he became popular again. You remember that parable the king. The town's insane and it's like so if you didn't watch TV and you're just reading in nineteen sixty seven making all these references and you. I don't know what they're talking about because you don't watch TV. The same thing happening with social media. I guess you know where it's like. You have to drink the wine and makes you mad right now because Yeah so in a way you're even though you're right the smartest move tell you right now just drink it with the rest of us that that's what it is. The Cup keeps coming fast. I keep going and finally one of these days all okay there we go. Every agrees is not nobody. Nobody thinks healthy. That's for sure. Yeah well I mean it must be a way to await a navigated it that We're we're in. You can still have some kind of a balanced life. I don't I don't know exactly Well I just I just go on and make like ironic you. The statements all day. I never I never. I never say anything sincere in my in my years on twitter since you and I wanted to go back to that from one because you see me. That's a really good point Colin and it because I think a lot of people regard twitter as a place to just engage in kind of goofiness and and and frankly as probably a good reason that people need a place to go and be goofy and if twitter is going to be serious twitter is going to be regarded as this major. And I guess you with this president and it's now a place for international statecraft and national national policy setting and etcetera economic the economic. I mean we we a new stock markets with a tweet. I mean that's just to me is like what and a so so if twitter is going to be that then maybe we need yet another social medium idiom call snark or something where people can just go on kind of ragged each other and have fun. You know how you're all elements like that already. uh-huh yeah I know but they need to be sorted out better because I think people don't understand that I mean all going on I. Could you imagine this police chief. He's got this guy in town name. Winkelmann who's of crack and he goes on crises called winkle watchers and so far we're having fun just like the very name winkle watcher sounds like he's trying to the fun right so all of a sudden. Now it's as big serious thing where you lose your job over it and he also lied about it later. which is you know again the cover of course lew Lecomba the cover up worse than the crime but but it but still I just I think we all I personally need to get used to this idea? That hat that twitter is is something to be taken seriously right after the show. Go on there. I'M GONNA take down my fake twitter account which I've been calling at Real Donald Trump. I don't know if you knew that one but I'm only kidding folks it is it is something something very strange changing society with all the stuff. Yeah it really bizarre. It's really really bizarre. And you are I'm sure you have you been to the Burlington area before. Oh Yeah I was there a couple of years ago addition as you can I call you back because I have another call. I have to take on this other line at nine. Oh all right yeah. That's cool let's let's let's let's let's go ahead and we'll we'll we'll do that. Thank you very much.
