But the glare from the train's headlights obscured two mile post markers Brown was using to monitor his speed.

"In the giant L in the word. Lives to residents of Martinez, California are facing hate crime charges for trying to obscure a black lives matter. Street mural in Martinez, Nicole Anderson, age 42 David Nelson, age 53. You're accused of splattering black paint on the letters on July 4th. It is eight minutes past eight o'clock on Seattle's morning news, parking fees, transit cuts $700 million losses of the department transportation. We're going to see some changes to our transportation system because of this whole virus incident and Chris Sullivan's watching all the trends and I'm going to start with what's changing over here in the next couple of days, and that's with the parking fees in Seattle. The free ride toe pay to park. Well, that's over because paid parking is going to return to the city of Seattle on Monday, going to start at the lowest price possible. 50 cents an hour. Seattle Department of Transportation's Ethan Bergersen says the enforcement will return as well, but officers will be focusing on education instead of writing a lot of tickets. We realize it's a big change has been a couple months of free parking, and we want to make sure people have that opportunity toe know there's a change happening. Not that gotcha moment, hourly time limits and unpaid business districts will also start being enforced. Again. So that starts on Monday, Metro Transit just announced that it is going to continue to be fair, free through August. Agency says it will probably lose about $80 million in fair revenue this year as it continues the free rides. Metro general manager robbed. Gannon said earlier during the pandemic that the agency expects to lose over $600 million in tax revenue through next year. This is a staggering figure by any measure, or at least it is too public transit systems and necessarily we have been monitoring How we can absorb this loss and what it means to our service profile. Metro plans to cut services by 15% of the fall continues to look for ways to trim service while keeping primary routes open ridership still down at Metro by about 65%. Metro's financial head. John Risha told US earlier this year that the agency is on solid footing, but Get through these losses is going to be tough. We've got good policies. We've got good reserves, and we're ready for this. To the extent any organization can be. But now we have to do the hard work of really engaging with the community and engaging with the business is to make sure that the system matches their mobility needs and that's really the key. Right now. We've got to find out what the public really wants and what's really being used and then focus on throwing whatever services we can at them. And that's going to leave some writers out in the cold, But that's the reality. Sound Transit is in even worse shape. Ridership, still off 80 to 85% expects to lose 7 to $12 billion expected revenues over the next 10 years. It could be out of money to expand service and deliver on promised improvements by 2028. Shouldn't impact the light rail expansions to Linwood and Bellevue, But it could put a serious dent in making it to Federal way and Everett And as we talked about earlier in the week, the Washington Department transportation looking at a $700 million hole and projected revenue through next year. What's that going to mean to major projects like finishing up 5 20? We don't know, don't have a clear view of what that's going to mean. Good news is some of the projects that have been gone going and have current funding. Things like a comb A. J. B. Aleman I five. Those are going to be continuing. On fact, they're going to be some rampant lane closures through those two projects owns over next week, most of them at night and the ferry system it's holding on but barely mean the numbers are crazy here. I mean, the most popular route in the state of Seattle to Bainbridge run a major commuter run still seeing a 70% drop in ridership. Cielo Bremerton off 75 to 80%. We're starting to see some even more service reductions with limited crew opportunities. So yeah, it is. Ah, Everybody is bleeding cash everywhere When it comes to transportation, So will there be a big sit down to decide whether commuting from home is here to stay, and therefore we don't need to do is much lane, widening. The war provides many ferry runs. That's what everybody's had a transit agencies crystal ball. They're sitting there looking at that, and And praying that they come up with the right answer because we don't have an answer to that yet because we're not quite sure how long this is going to last and what the public is really going to do yet. Is it going to stay the way it is now? Is that the long term plan? And if that's the case, Yeah, they're going to have to look significantly harder of significant shift in the way we're getting around. And does that mean we no longer need to get whoever we no longer need to get the federal way? Or Tacoma with sound transit, light rail, so they don't know then That's the big problem, and it's really hard to be a planner right now, when you don't know what one or two of the major values in your equation actually are so, yeah, they're going to some tough choices to be made. But first, the public's got to make their decision. Long term and we just don't know what that is you Chris Sullivan. It is a 13 little bit of a virus Update here. Former Vice President Joe Biden travel to Dunmore, Pennsylvania talk about creating more jobs in American manufacturing. Also criticized President Trump is being all talk and no action. When it comes to covert 19. Trump is simply given.

R. E. C. and ninety two point one FM I'm glad Lewis you're listening ground zero Dave L. is with us tonight at ground zero talking about big foot course big put making an appearance on traffic cams in the Pacific Northwest now and certainly some interesting footage is compatible probably to the given Patterson film especially one particular image was released by the Washington department transportation of a big foot walking on a mountain pass being picked up by a traffic jam and and they were talking about what kind of thing scientists are looking for when you produce hair samples you gave us an idea because you always hear the you know the submit hair samples we always have the story well they're a lot like deer or they're like elk a rabbit or whatever and I you never get what they're looking for because you know it's like it's like you know well I've got big foot hair will okay how you gonna tell if it's a big for their weapons is something that's normal like I I was talking earlier about how they discovered that the yeti was sort of a hybrid bearer that is doesn't look anything like the Tibetan bears with something like the Himalayan bears but it walks upright if you look more like a hominid in looks like a bear and I thought well maybe if they discovered that yet he's are like that maybe big for like that how would they be able to look at some DNA differences are strange differences with the big fort how they determine it and another thing too is that look like for example you here's stats samples they say well I got scat samples so they're if they're that analyzing scat are the analyzing dietary habits of of the creature are there certain enzymes that would be produced it would be different from a regular animal what are we looking for their well okay let's start with scat scat has a very short shelf life for being able to collect any viable DNA it's almost like you have to be right under the you're collecting it is they they poop because the enzymes once they're exposed to the elements they could die off quickly so finding a DNA and a stool sample scat sample is almost next to impossible however there are certain things and like you said what is the diet of the of the crater and also are there you know specific things within this tool works got sample that reflect it's the way it digests food so if it digest food like a bare it's probably a bear if I digest like a human or has you know certain forms are certain things that we have within our skeptical then it becomes a little bit more you know something worthy of of discussion however most people don't go to that that link you know collecting of us got sample is one of the the least things that I'd be interested in how many do I just I just know that's one of the things they do collect and I one of the reasons why the skookum casted comes to mind where they had the back and the buttocks of a of a big foot to the cast of the mud and they were saying that the waiting what attracted is they would use like dole fruit that fruit left out forty beat the fruit and then it laid back in the mud and they got the cast of this big foot right but that was that's why I was asking about the scat was because what are we looking at for diet here are big foot Sasquatch omnivores or they what what do they eat mostly I yeah I'm pretty sure that they are omnivores I bet still in the speculation game we don't have a septic to actually analyze what their their dietary preferences are but it would just make sense that they would be more like a bear as far as the the diet goes when you know they eat both plants and animals for specific reasons and specific needs I certainly would have fish in L. are there there there's another question to what about bone abnormalities because I I remember back during investigations when I was younger bed they're actually bone Abner out abnormalities and some of the foot cast where you'd see that big ad that Sasquatch big foot can can they they actually get arthritic there are there are the big get the same type of bone disorders that we get I think your wrist hi am I may be wrong but correct me please the boss bird track yes worry though that definite abnormality and that was attributed to more likely a broken foot then a arthritic scenario okay well yeah that that's what Grover Krantz I believe determined so she was able to take that bone structure however and pretty much make a solid case that this was not a human and not a hoax so because the bones were where they should be for supporting a creature of this particular weight and size well see the thing is most interesting about deformities in feed and certain things but are normally talked about with big foot is that you can always tell if something's being fake because as they they don't go into detail but we look at something like the Patterson given film where you have a you know a big foot with harasses or you have you like the skookum cast you have the actual back and buttocks of a big foot the anatomy and much of the things that we as humans care about would be the same things we look into a for studying a creature that may be similar to us such as the Sasquatch and that's why I think it's fast for you thought we talk about this David Ellis was tonight eight.

"Votes ninety nine seven three with the side the winter we will get to that should the catholic church finally allow priests to get very if you missed the show yesterday text app a._p. two nine eight nine seven three all right so why is it that amtrak is still using trains are old and unsafe the towel go series trains running the cascade amtrak's those are those the same model that crashed and the said hey we found out those wheel units during a crash they fly like missiles And destroy everything in its path, and hurt. Her human being so car sevens. Graham Johnson spoke to Janet Mackin of the Washington department transportation. Hey, why are we still using those trains? We are working with Amtrak to acquire replacement equipment are there that many train cars lying around is at the problem. That is the problem is that there aren't spare trains, just in storage somewhere. That's a fair statement. And I offer thought experiment. If this was a trucking company in the trucking company said, well, there's not spare trucks, sitting around if it wasn't a government entwined entity like Amtrak. I don't think they'd get quite the same pass as they are here. Yeah. I don't know. I mean it's hard to my guess is that they wouldn't. But my guess also is that they probably would have been charging customers sufficiently so they could have upgraded their fleet crime. Perhaps they would they would. So I mean with Amtrak, you never know. I mean as the funny thing about Amtrak is that I am a huge believer in trains. I've traveled a lot in Europe. I love taking the train places. I find it. Absolutely. I completely not only a efficient way to travel. It's a delightful way to travel when you have a good rail system and Amtrak continually thwarts that notion, it frustrates me. Endlessly, because I really do root for track and one Amtrak to do well, but at every turn, I mean this. It's difficult. It's difficult to figure out. What is always wrong here, but it's always been wrong. I say, here's my supposition. This is my theory, Mike. How's right out in the white paper later, put it on the white board. They have access to money at all times that the government subsidies, I think our Amtrak's biggest enemy. There's a lot of people who love on-track Amtrak. They should take the, the Acela aligned back east the Acela corridor. The millionaire corridor cut that off into separate business. Those people will pay cash money to ride that thing it is, there's no better way to get around the eastern seaboard. I've done it. The planes, forget it. The drive in forget it the train rules in that in that environment. And then out here, it's just a completely different varmints a divorced two, and then maybe just have to make money then you don't sell nine dollar fifty cent hamburgers and lose money on a nine cent hamburger. Yeah. But I mean the, the, the, the commercial freight rail lines are heavily subsidized yet work better. So I don't know that it's the government subsidies. Right. I mean, because everything the entire Bill. Building of the rail network in America was one giant giveaway. They know this. It was it was. There's never been anything like almost world history how much land was given away and how much how much the subsidies the, the rail industry had to get started and become vast. We have torn some of that up and it's unfortunate. We have streetcar lines all over Seattle that we have. We currently have payment over right? Yeah. I mean this is the what we did with rails. We had it, and then we gave it away. And now we're not committed fully to finding it and getting it back where it should be. I would be a big fan if the government cut out subsidies but prior to that heavily subsidized Amtrak to get it up. Correct safe on the quarter between here in Los Angeles, or between Vancouver BC in Los Angeles dynamite, then pull that money away and let Amtrak exist on its own, or find somebody who can do it. So in the spirit of common ground, I can go with you. If they do that on the east coast. I just don't I do not see a use for them on the west coast other than pleasure travel. I that's just me and I think they're so easy, while someone easy ways and. I just take the Seattle to Portland run. That was going to save six minutes. And that's where this accident came about. We asked earlier in the show, and we had this discussion about our driver's licenses, according to this or the top hardest wants to get in the United States of America. The hardest. So we asked on the text line, and main, Tracy, we have a lot of people failed their driver's licenses. Listen to the radio station just to let you know, Tracy Taylor. I did the first time and you heard what happened to me. Right. And you do you remember why you failed? Yeah. I, I ran a stop sign. Yeah. Yeah. I. That's pretty good. I did to California. Stop. I was like, oh, I thought you knowledge this off sign with a polite bow got it. All right. Well, listen to these guys. This is from the text line, and white people failed, their driver's licenses test, the three six oh, I failed mine, because they didn't turn my wipers on fast enough. There were literally ten drops on the windshield. That's chintzy. That's almost as bad as my guy saying, I was over confident from the six five oh, I came from L A, y'all up here, scared, and timid. The Blake could not agree more. The blinkers not a request to heads up upcoming. Yeah. No, the problem with the Blaker is not even that not a request. The blinker is also treated in this area as a celebration of going around the corner. Put it on. Like, look, what I'm doing not maybe an advanced warning of what you're going to be doing. But rather just to enjoy the moment and get yourself a little extra attention, by the way, sometimes it depends on where your drive. There's also the blinker is I'm gonna turn one day. I'm, I'm fixing the turn. All right from the two five three. The instructor said, I quote you pass, but it never passed anybody into I try while to six on the backing around the corner. Both wheels went up the curve back Dale. Who does that move in real life? I mean or like the three point turn come on. You know, three three point turns all the time. Really? I guess it's a city thing. Well, I mean, yeah, if you're driving in the city you kind of have to you have to go around. They'll put you do your turn back up, and then you do them. If you're you turning in the city using a three point turn once or twice a week except where I grew up, Mike. I grew up like Spokane is Modesto Washington state realize when you guys park on your lawns. You don't often meet to make an I was going to talk about. I was gonna talk about flipping a blank. You know what I'm saying? Don't you? Oh, well, that sort of four to five I went through an intersection with a yellow light on, and it turned red right across the line. He had be complete the test for practice. Then he just failed them on the spot. Don't so cruel four to five. I the only time I failed my driver's license says, when I was done with all the skills tests on the way back to the licensed center, I failed to yield to oncoming traffic while making a left turn the light, that's deadly you right? There are a menace, right? I hope you've saved your so that David of Lakewood failed twice. I got hit on the parking on a hill and not turning the wheels, and not having to hands on the wheel on the steering wheel criminal four to five. I got one of the last driver's licenses in the state of Washington issued for farmers, fourteen and driving a week truck. All did you have that California? We didn't have that in health. Actually, let me back that up. I am they had it, Nevada. I don't know of had it in California. I certainly wasn't a farmer. So I was, I would have. But in California, you could ride a moped. They have this weird sort of exception on motorcycle licenses for something small, like a moped and you could at fourteen right a moped. Yeah. And my on regular public roads, my friend, roar was not only named roar, which everybody knows is a cool name. He got his licenses fourteen because he could drive in the farm. But it could drive in Washington today. Tracy, this one's for you for the three six so I failed by driving tests by performing a California stop about three blocks into the test. I develop bad habits by driving since I was thirteen and my friends grandparents car that we borrow. I just I will just say this. My step dad taught me how to drive. Yeah. He knew came to a full Scott. Ever ever ever. And I kept saying, well, wait a minute,.
