Already dropped some of the cuts of her animal onto the ground and they have to be within the lines they do colons colons look and he's like is that in the right spot he's moving it not just adjusted them back up. She had a little trouble with the line. That she's she's a head that i don't know. Is that leg within the lines though. That's what we're going to have to score on that called. And i've seen a button i've never seen one there that oh colton. Is he folded under the pressure. The pressure is getting to him. He's holding gonna have to go behind. You gotta get going here. I'll look at her. Go down to three cuts. Did she drop one. Where's the other one around the floor. The league is not imposition. The judges have just informed me. That leg is not quite position. it's just. I don't know how to adjust and she's in time is right would we. We had a couple there. I see a correct animal dung by our queen as well colton in all seriousness. Colton had many more cuts to put right. There are many more cuts on a hog. There isn't land and there is a lamb and rate job. All he had left was was the neck. The snout the ear. He was trying to stick a hawk on the on. The snout part. And i it was kind of franken. I will tell you what colin you come back next year. We'll have it again. We'll get you can bring shelby back. We'll have the rematch. Everybody's going to we'll pay per view it. That was well done well. I'll bet you guys that was awesome. Well done colton. I gotta give shout out there. Combed bring that frisbee back. We'll play catch afterwards. Okay that'll work. Has county fair here. Today rely again We do want to get to this here before we take a break before we wrap up the show rather Let's go ahead and get to the know now. Week in review chris binary director reporting for nine news. I think we're getting close to that point. Honestly right now with dumb people in public health healthier. So they're asking that question is it going is it just an essence endemic is. It's going to be around for a long time. We just have to come up with ways on how to deal with it. And i think that's an interesting point because we're not gonna get to the point you know. Remember all the talk about herd immunity and getting to the point of unity. I think hurt him unique. Wait you are racist from the face of the planet not going to happen to learn to live with the and what does that look like. It is sitting really mayor. John gates here. People reported vip guests or upper reelection. This november cou city council members have disclosed that they are not running so there be two new members to city council and could be more depending on what voters think about Reelecting me and then re-electing brett payton in a separate war so could be what will turn over. Could be a lot. And that'll be the handsome voters. But but i'm certainly to continuing on knowing that There is an end date. And i appreciate that there is all. There's a time that all wanna step aside. But that is not right. Now windsor mayor. Paul renna meyer joining us with a big Big win for windsor Winner they're in full full scale operations out there it we we've had Studies done to show that it should produce about sixteen million dollars in sales tax revenue To the town as well as you know property taxes and other things. So i mean obviously the government That's a huge opportunity for us. But you know again. It's similar to our concerts in the park and our farmers market at our boardwalk park. You know we have several different things. That are engaged to bring people to windsor to have windsor regional. Draw mike freeman. The weld county commissioner. I have not had any conversations with the governor. And i you know i think that I think it'd be really difficult at this point for him to go back and reverse course You know he pulled back all these executive orders we all know. It's all about politics. Obviously two days before the all star game you had to get everything off so that he could actually fill a stadium for the all star game I just don't seem going back to mandate i think he is actually gonna start doing a little bit. What will county did and say you know what personal responsibility did hear him Just the other day that he was not planning on on on mandate going back to school. He's gonna leave it up to individual school district which guess what got the right thing to do with. Hope he sticks to what he's saying. That was the nocona week in review the last junior deputy. Mike freeman the commissioner swinging by as always brian. Thank you so much man. This is a this is a blast down here. I know we're going to kind of wander around after this and check some of the animals out things of that nature but that was that was a lot of fun. I had a great time. Thanks for inviting me.

Thanks for being here. Are you going to beat against that. He's eleven years twelve probably but he's already up there studying so i don't think that's entirely fair but nobody said life was fair. No this is cheat to win has been my motto through life. Pretty far too. It has worked. Well go so. I'm just shall we treat. I'm serving as twenty twenty twenty twenty one welcoming fair queen. Congratulations on the arm wrestling contests that look like a lot. I love it. I love it all right if i could tell you why. She's a norwegian as well. No girl yeah all right.

I'm twenty five percent german tanner's vintages what name should we use it. As a w still. No i understand my i have married to german. Yeah great people. I mean yeah. Let's not clear history. Learn to adapt all right. Let's let's talk about your ancestry here. Let's go ahead. So what got you into this. You're from johnstown originally right and now you're over at cs you got you so excited to be a part of the world county fair. You know what. I'm going to be the damn queen well so starting now you can join for h. when you're eight a full fledged member but you can still be a clover. Bud one. you're five years old. So he can clover bud from five to eight then become a full on for each member from eight to eighteen and when i turned eight. My dad's like hey. We're going to get you involved in this thing that i did when i was a kid. I'm like okay. Bye okay i guess. I'll come and i went to a couple of meetings and like okay this this. They're kind of weird. But i mean i guess for people are kind of cool and then a few years later when i was sixteen i went on the cw after. Which is the seat citizenship washington focus and we folk we fundraise for three years and with that money. We go take a fourteen day long trip out to washington d. c. and new jersey. And all those places out there just to really get that history and learn about basically the founding of our country and all that amazing stuff and just on that trip with about thirty other four h. Kids on my little excursion. And i'm thinking well i actually really really cool like. They're not that weird. As i used to think they have stuff going on year round. That's actually really interesting. And i want to get more involved very year. I decided to run for welcoming royalty and i didn't get my first year but then i tried again the next year and i received the title of the twenty one thousand nine hundred while kind of fair attendant which is basically the same role as ellen. Emerson that right. They have this year and then i ran again and i got queen and then with covert i got my queen year relapse. So are you the first code world kennedy fair queen. Well i'm not technically a college student. Yes graduated from roosevelt high school in two thousand twenty. In the summer. I have to say on july eighteenth i graduated for sure is wonderful grabbers very next day. Actually i was elected. Serve on the to twenty twenty Colorado ffa state officer team as the state secretary on that as well thank you. Yeah so then. I took a year off college to serve as that position and working fulltime job at a legal office and so now this year. I have all my classes ready and ready to study neuroscience night business yes uses fall. Roosevelt ahead always had a great ffa program as well out there. Graduating apply valley. We know fence had the best one of the state but roosevelt was always a very strong program. Reservoir mr hopkins. He's been the adviser there. I think coming up on twenty two years constantly these. He's one of the most amazing advisors ever. He's helped me out so many ways. He's advisors are a different breed. That is for sure that is absolutely for sure. So did you show it all this year. Yes so i exhibited some projects into the not lon- livestock portions exhibited a leather working project. A roche not crochet a clothing construction and a drying picture. I got reserved grand champions with clothing construction and leather crafting. So that's pretty exciting. Very i might look a little bit different than the other two girls today. 'cause i've been waiting my pigs in all morning. I have three pigs this year too. Didn't make way unfortunately at the last minute. But i have one spot that i'll be showing tomorrow so i'm pretty excited about that. You know that's going to be so one of the questions that everybody asks me is like when he had a pet really at that point. Was it hard. When he knew the inevitable end for them was going to be. How do you deal with that. I mean my the thing that i've always said if you're not crying at the end you didn't do all right. That's good i cry every radio show. Id so that we're cry. During that's how he feels is two hours. Take a lot of crying. So you're going to see as you neuroscience What the hell is this. Thank you brian. Science is basically the study of the chemicals in the brain. So i wanted. I got a project with this one project. She's rover hands waiting for the evil scientists laughter coming from toby over there. Lv my senior project is like totally game. Yeah so basically. I'll be studying neuroscience learning about what makes up your brain essentially and that's just fascinates me because it looks like noodles. Doesn't it like it's just like what is this. But it controls every single action you ever take every member you'll ever have just everything in the first time that i really became passionate about neuroscience was when i went to the issue of physics expose and i held a brain there for the first time and i was just thinking like i have this brain in my hand because they had this anatomy portion of this little shop of physics and like this was somebody's entire life every memory every reminiscent of an action. Every emotion is sitting here in my hands within the neurons in this brain like that.

And i get that same little nervousness. He get around him and you're like get a little tense and and they're better than some people say they're better than dogs at syncing that stuff. I'm not a fan. No i totally get that. I got on a on one. Finally it was about ten years ago. It had been a long time. I was a kid that i did. And i got on one and while riding it. I got that feeling because everyone says if you ride motorcycle you understand that. That's the same vibe. People get when they rice and it was very similar to that type of feeling when i was going. He is and i competed in a in a competition. One time on the back of it was an old old horse that we had and did what was the name of the. I don't even remember the name of the competition but competed in. It took place in a way we went but That same horse bucked me off. And i literally had to get back on. My dad would not let me leave. Until i got back on that horse and showed it who was boss and then took it back in and and i think that's part of the reason i don't like them either but i tend to but the one for me chickens. I hate really. I have a weird. They clearly out. So i walked in here. We're in we're in the exhibition hall. And i'm looking to all the booze some walking down and i walk in. I know they were sheep. Goats and everything to my left. As soon as i walk in all of the chickens that people are showing right there. And i'm like ticket steps of where i've no chickens.

Don't get after me on this one. But he was up top collecting. Hey doesn't look down and says coming down. It landed right on top of chicken right on the chicken and we heard a crunch and it was just one of those things. It was funny watching it unfold and we looked away in this chicken just lays there and he's just like looking at me like what the hell did i do. I'm dying laughing at this point. This chicken gets up. It just starts running around like is it dead. Is it brain dead or what is going on. And we left came back a couple of months later. That chicken was the exact same size that it was when he stepped on it but other than that it was completely find it just stunted its growth but a hearing him about of land right on that damn chicken. That was one of the funniest things that i'm like. That's for all those mean roosters out there. That's where you get after me okay. That's that's one of my favorite stories.

Mike Freeman was about the political dialogue amongst candidates you come from a communications background what are your thoughts on how some of these candidates from the local even all the way to the national to the presidential level have been conversing and the type of message that sends. Here the great thing about freedom of speech is you have the freedom to run your mouth. You also have the freedom to say the wrong things and KNBR be perceived the wrong way I know with the negative I know with many of the lies and much of the spin is not the way that I would run a campaign.

That I run a campaign I will speak more towards what I personally can bring to the table about my experience about my understanding of the issues about my understanding Weld County at edits people, I will not take up and slamming other candidate I will not try to bring negatives to the forefront I, think people tire of fat and I think political discourse needs to change in this country and and to sound overly combined with you.

Different residents of Weld County and the commission you guys have started some facebook lives that I know you've been doing well, how important is it for the.

"As our conversation Rolls on this morning with Weld County Commissioner Scott. Got One ask you about that Weld Recovery Fund because I understand there's a deadline coming up quickly. Various It is in the straight. To the chase rather it is. The thirtieth of September is is when the first trunch is is doing. Of course you'll remember in. Recently the cares act passed one point six, billion dollars to the state of Colorado Governor immediately took nine, hundred, sixty, million put an education two, hundred, seventy, eight, million of that initial one, point six, billion dollar grant was was given to local governments well-crafted qualified for twenty seven point eight, million dollars of that. kind of stuff we need thirteen point two to cover covert related expenses. Twelve point to that went out to on a per capita kind of allocation for him that we we came up with when outdoor municipalities we have thirty two of them in Weld County and of course, we've taken two point, three, million dollars we kind of have left plus some moneys that. DOUGHTY's have. Basically. Three million dollars has been stood up no well recovery fund. Weld recovery dot com is is the email address where you can learn all things about that well, recovery dot com and it again, it is the thirtieth fish timber. Do. That's good to know. All right. So we're six months into the pandemic. Let's talk a little bit about the county budget outlook and the economy and where we sing where we stand and. The prospects are going forward. Well I can tell you that our budget is in good shape. It's thriving shape that we saw last year but Weld County prides itself in if anything we pride ourselves on being a fiscally responsible county with no long-term debt no-shirt turn though no county sales tax hundred, Million Dollar Rainy Day Fund GonNa have to dip into a little bit of that. Here we have the next couple of years twenty, twenty one should be okay because you know oil. And Gas assessments run two years in a rear readers We expect to see a rather major drip drop rather in the gas revenues from it. Assessment rate will be down about one point, five, billion dollars in in the coming years. From a budget standpoint, we'll be fine. We asked our department heads to go out and find fifteen percent and expenses not people fifteen percent expenses. They found a fifteen percent and we'll be able to to constrict on budget there. Are No firms are no layoffs and our service levels they remain the same. It's just we kind of tighten our belts so to speak and and the way that we do business in and pandemic or not. I think it's a good exercise for government that tighten its belt to get out there and and find that fifteen percent but I'll cutting services. What kind of people? Let's find the money that we really scrutinize every expenditure and I'm proud of our department. Heads for for doing just that from a standpoint of Economy and weld, county of our our unemployment rate since it's seven point, two percent that's lower than the state average of seven point four percent. Still Jackie good that we saw pre code of course are are major economic sectors in weld county are are market-driven. They are agriculture their oil and gas The market always continues to be a little bit of sluggish with you on gas. Well, that's soggy. You became sluggish due to the markets and and due to what they were doing and. In in the Soviet, Union are told union man I just went back beverly. Well..

"As he simply going to let it expire? Look I am all. All for giving businesses I am all for giving consumers certainty as they move forward, and if a mass gives them certainty, then I believe in the business in their ability to mandate mask-wearing, if the individual the consumer wants to have certainty when they go out, and they want to wear a mask. I believe in that individual's right to make that decision I. do not agree with a government authority forcing you to wear a mask if I don't agree with it was. Some numbers here with Weld County Commissioner Scott James these numbers, and it's something that I've been pushing actively on this program. Cases are the scary numbers that you're going to see right headlines, commissioner. You've been in the media industry you know. Headlines always say it's trying to grab attention. We are a lot of media. Outlets are using big case numbers, and then just saying hospitalizations continued rise really that the fact of the matter is cases. Don't mean much. Is the hospitalizations that we need to keep an eye on? At my agree, we have seen an increase in cases especially over the last couple of weeks here in Weld County. And that is of certainly a concern now. Here's the tough part. What we don't know is the number ended nominators so to speak with all the different agencies doing testing. We're doing testing in Weld County. You can go to your health practitioner and get a test at Kroger. An an Walgreens I believe are doing tests. There are all sorts of people doing tests now. Some of these the individual practitioners you know the Walgreens of the world do not have to report a test given all. They have to report as a test positive, so if we see two positives come out at Walgreens for example, is that based on how many tests twenty two hundred two thousand? It makes a big difference than number in the denominator so to speak we. We don't know the number in the denominator are cases on the increase. Yes, but we don't know the number of people in total that have been tested, and it's frustrating almost disingenuous when you try to right policy around the situation. Well, you talked about really not having a plan of reopening. It kind of feels like that and I spoke on us. Either governor polls wasn't planning on issuing this just two days ago, or he was planning on issuing this and just flat out, said you know that the opposite of it, so you commissioner, you know the political affairs in the dealings of that. Does this just feel like something that in forty-eight hours? What? We should probably put this in place? I don't I don't proclaim to be a mind reader I do know that I. I've got the executive orders sitting in right in front of me. It certainly took some time to prep. Certainly, he has been hearing from his advisors Did he have an attention a couple of days ago I that in the press conference he gave. Think, this is from seven nine. This is the one where he said we should all wear our damn mass and wagged his finger at us. I believe that he said then. That I haven't ruled out anything I want to do whatever we can. That will increase mask wearing now. I'm not here to argue the mask is there is is amazing evidence out of the CDC that says that the mask is a good way to prevent the spread of Colon. Now we also know. Know that that individuals who are asymptomatic according to the CDC have a very very very low probability of of spreading the disease, so very for the diseases spread by people who are sick. People who are sick should stay home..

It was almost another world in January. than it is today, and you see you know with Co visited the black lives matter marches It's really been a strange thing to view I do miss policy side of it, you know. I spent you know more than you know twenty five years in well almost three decades working for members of Congress. Congress senators I was chief of staff. You know, and I kinda hearken back. You know I went through nine eleven. in Washington DC I went through anthrax, and shutting down the Senate buildings, and dealing with all health consequences that surrounded that and we're about our stop You know many of them. Young people who you know we're working on the hill and seemed are literally on a on a evening. We were told you know. Grab your personal items. you know, take home what you need to work on work shutting down the Senate buildings and they were shut down for a couple of months while they you know they sanitize the heart, and Russell and Dirksen Senate buildings after the anthrax. Yet we went through nine eleven where we had a plane. Go down the mall and go into the Pentagon and and and that so if kind of. In terms of what we're going through it kind of reminds me about twenty years ago. When in another capacity as as a member of senators, staff and chief of staff and taking care of people and trying to deal with policy. You know whether that was airport security that was hell. concerns It really reminds me and then you know going through the great recession and seeing the devastation I mean I know a lot of your listeners remember how bad it was in two thousand and two, thousand, nine, two, thousand, ten in Weld County. That we stayed in in foreclosures, businesses restaurants closing down. So you combine those two. It kind of reminds me a little bit about those two things and I do miss you know being involved in terms of coming up with solutions and trying to deal with that and You know we'll see. This is GonNa be I think this will be an election year. We really not experienced. Probably since all the turmoil back fifty years ago, during the Vietnam War and the protests, and all of that it. It's very reminiscent of nineteen sixty eight and. But we'll see but yeah I would be less than honest if I say didn't miss the political side of it. I am you know people call me. On occasion and ask for advice and counsel, and I try to give them I. Tell them the advice is free so You know you get what you pay for. There you go there. You go all right, but here's the sixty four thousand dollar question. I can't help but think you're going to be totally.

Just so much to cover, so you can stay with us. He Oh. Absolutely I mean I'm here for as long as you need me this morning. I'm I've got my cup of coffee and I'm.

Apparently there seemed to be well freeman wrote in an email. According to the trip the board is concerned about our communication message going Haywire again. A possible reference to confusion that arose after the health department issued its Public Health Order canceling events of ten more people. The order seemed to cause particular confusion to operators of childcare centers. According to email sent to weld health officials prompting and a denim as we. Well recall to that order Later that day and then there was the give and take Between the two of them now Wallace said we are requiring people to social distance in order to prevent future covid nineteen dense deaths and protect our workforce but You were actually quoted in this piece as well via an email saying that well. Perhaps that language was a little too strong. Not a big fan of government for scale I'm not a big fan of making requirements that we can't possibly in force. I would strongly encourage folks social distance. I strongly encourage that to this day but One is allowing people to utilize their their personal responsibility their freedom their their their their liberty to do what is right for themselves for their families for the communities for the businesses. I've said this many times throughout this pandemic the other is the heavy hand of government Heavy-handed can't possibly be enforced. Therefore I simply wanted to the language to say that we're not requiring that we are strongly suggesting now Mark Wallace for his part wrote in emails to other health officials across the state that he received pushback pushed back to his public health order. Did the Weld did the Board of Weld County Commissioners. Push BACK ON NICK. Wallace a couple of different points on that to in our meeting. And I think it'd be. It goes back to March seventeenth. I'm going to have to check my calendar to be. You'd be sure but but we had a meeting in the morning. Dr Wallace about this growing concerned about this this oncoming pandemic and he had talked about issuing that that that pandemic declaration and he talked about limiting limiting gathering sizes of groups to fifty or less that is what he communicated with the Board of County Commissioners then when we see his order come through it at ten or lasts and we said wait a minute. That's not what was communicated to us so that was Where we had that conversation there and Gail. I'm sorry I'm having one of those senior moments of I forget happens to the rest of us but that that was certainly a concern when we were told one thing and another thing came out and in order well and in past conversations and I appreciate the clarity that you've provided on this because I fell into that semantics trap The Weld County Board of Commissioners did not close businesses. Therefore they could not reopen businesses. But it goes to the point of we are in now time of a very delicate balancing act where we are attempting and again. It's not a one size. Fits all equation across the country attempting to take the economy off of life support in the time of covid nineteen and very carefully very methodically? Very cautiously Reopened businesses not only across the state but indeed across the country. Now there are those that would say. Well Oh those. So Evil County Commissioners. They're just all about capitalism at the expense of public health. But that's not in my humble opinion. That's not the case because it's a balancing act hat. Scott you just had one hundred doctors on Tuesday. Send a letter to President trump saying that if we don't manage the figure out a way to reopen there could be catastrophic consequences in terms of our collective psyche. It's absolutely not. The case is as far as as we'll goes you'd had mentioned that that it takes different forms across the nation to take different forms across the county. What is good ingredient? What is good and Evans may not necessarily be good in south westworld and in the heart of district that I represent if you've looked Johnstown there twenty five cases and that's cumulative we have no way of knowing how many active cases there are nonetheless so so you take twenty five cases. You compare that to Greeley. What's going to be good in? Greeley is not necessarily good in Johnstown is not necessarily a good in Fredericton. Firestone I mean this is the epitome of a local government who that we should look to to to control. This thing have had the opportunity to talk to a several small business owners restaurant owners being particularly hard hit by the covid nineteen related closures. One restaurant or I spoke to set. Frankly even if a governor police issues those new guidelines for Restaurants mother among other businesses to reopen. I believe it's May twenty fifth. If I'm not mistaken well she is still somewhat concerned about the safety Not only her own safety bit indeed that of her employees ease and that customers. Well that is a business owner choice as to whether to reopen or not. And the we've talked to to some degree about The dueling orders. We have the safer at home order. Of course they should by Governor Jared Polis and that was Countered by the Weld County boards safer at work order. But they're still seeing a guidance guidance. Excuse me yes see. Senior moment. My apologies guidance guidelines. Okay thank you. Continue to call me on that because the orders are kind of mood. They're not enforceable anyway but the bottom line is this. A lot of restaurant owners are still a little hazy on what that looks like coming to the Board for some guidance is my understanding. What additional guidance are you able to provide To a restaurant owners at this point in time I the the guidelines that I would suggest they follow the ones that are published by minded. The restaurant associations We have looked across the spectrum of businesses across business sectors. And you know. The automobile dealers association are standing up Ways that they feel that automobile dealers can get back to where we know. The Colorado Restaurant Association has done Gomez work on putting together guidelines. That are are are great thing to be followed by by the members of of their Of their trade sector so so restaurants I would suggest look for to the restaurant. Association's for that it goes back to this for me Gail. No one knows better. How to innovate then than somebody? That's actively involved in that business. We put out the general guidelines. Hey here's how this virus travels you know we've heard it from everybody to the wd p. h. e. to the Colorado Department of Public Health Environment to the CDC and they're saying many of the similar things these are the guidelines. These are the ways that this virus travels per se you as a business owner. Nobody knows better how your restaurant operates than the restaurant to. Nobody knows better how Jim operates than the gym owner. Those we looked to those industries to do it. American business does best. And that's innovate. Find a way that you can operate in this new era a coded and and have that communication have that conversation with your consumers for. Let's go this is Scott and certainly do appreciate your time on Scott James Webb County Commissioner. Back to this piece in the Greeley trip by Trevor. Read Wallace decided to retire after a private administrative meeting with the Board of County Commissioners April twenty fourth he told the commissioners in an e says Trevor Read. It's unclear what happened at that meeting. As though minutes were kept notice was made to the public. Did Mark Wallace retire of because of what could be construed as being a conflict when it came to the messaging between the board and Dr Wallace in his capacity S Executive Director of a Weld Department of Public Health and environment to questions make sure I answer them both. But let me you have a question but I want I want address. Mr Reads asser occasion. Mr Reed needs to understand exactly how Colorado Sunshine Laws Work and administrative. Meeting does not need to be noticed and administrative meeting. We do not have to keep minutes the ascertain I find quite frankly insulting and if you're going to be a journalist. I would ask that Mr Reed for just just check up on exactly what the Colorado Sunshine Law says secondly to to Mr Wallace's Dr Mollahs Retirement. The man who worked in public health done an incredible job for twenty. Five years Dr Wallace I approached the chair of the board of County Commissioners Mike Freeman and his commissioner coordinator. This year is commissioner. Steve Moreno They were both in the hallway. Doc called Mike and said Hey. Can I come over and visit with you for a couple of seconds? He came over at that point in time. He said You know. I'm tired and I would like to retire. And and of course. Mike's Reaction Admit appropriately. So along with Commissioner Moreno was well. Let's have a conversation. Let's let's further talk this through and we spent the next couple of weeks talking with Dr Walter About About how much we want to keep him around Dr Wallich game conclusion that you know what I I want. Time with my family and well county is very proudly always said family first and so therefore we simply cannot We wish him well as he retires. Because he has been an absolute icon in weld. County would've comes to to to public health. Was there any sort of forced retirement? Was there any sort of conflict? There is not It's it's interesting again. I don't know how much time I have. I know you're up against a break here but I would like to to address Doctors take an oath of office not office but they take an oath. The hippocratic oath do no harm doctor. We want Dr Wallace. One hundred percent myopically focused on on covert and how it's defeated now if you truly want to take the absolute safest route defeating covert you. Lock people up in their house but I took an oath to uphold the constitution of the United States and we have since learned. I mean particularly in New York. That wasn't necessarily true You had people under lockdown contracting covid nineteen and so there there is a balance. We want Dr Wallace. Absolutely one. Hundred percent myopically focused on defeating the disease and then folks who are elected to positions like myself have to make those difficult decisions about. How can we not only combat covert but not killing Economy.

"weld county" Discussed on NoCo Now � 1310 KFKA

"Thirteen ten. Kfi The whole sport story in northern Colorado state in the country tune into the whole show weekdays noon to two and thirteen ten. Kfi K walk back into Noko. Now I'm tanner Sh- went in the special edition and that may have been the fastest hour of my life. Joining me is Gayle Fallon Mornings with Gail resuming tomorrow at six. Am In gale house. A lot of a lot of information that we just got to tell you what we packed a lot in in that first our boy a lot of valuable information as news is breaking fast and furious. There's no doubt about it and I did. I'm getting texts and questions about what? What could these ramifications be know? And there's going to be those right off the bat you know rumors flying around and about how is governor? Police going to going to all those things. And I'm still texting back and forth with Commissioner Freeman here. And He. He fully expects that that governor polls will try to a intimidate them Y Weld County with a maybe sanctions of taking away funding. But there's no there's been none of that announced yet. Obviously this is brand new information So so we we expect that there could be a push back from the there will be state push back but gail what are your thoughts on on the ramifications of what could come down from today. Well I am working some sources. Some anonymous sources as you are as well Via text this morning or there you go. There's your this morning this evening. Go right but Yeah my understanding is this is from a pretty reliable source that the governor is threatening counties. That don't obey that. Do not obey the safer at home order with financial sanctions. So that backs up your source as well right and I know I know for a fact. There's been nothing specific so far in what it would look like or how that would look like and again. This is a pretty quick response from Weld County saying we're not going to be. We're not following the state guidelines. We're going to allow us for everybody so we could very well see Gale some of these more rural counties. Start to fall in line with what well done. I think that the commissioners are setting some sort of a precedent at least and there should be counties that will follow well and I think that we have seen that in the oil and wars with the passage of Senate. Bill went eighty-one Weld County saying no. We won't back down there. No stranger to a tussle with Governor Jared Polis and so wouldn't surprise me whatsoever to see other counties as you said Tanner follow suit with Weld County but the thing that just is so incredible to me is once again restoring to the people their freedoms and their liberties our constitutional rights and that is exactly what the Board of Weld County. Commissioners has done With this saver at work Move on their part to go into effect. Of course this Monday. I April twenty-seventh and this is the first announcement there's going to be in the next twenty four to forty eight hours. There's going to be so much information coming out on this. And I know you'll be having a ton of experts on a lot of those elected officials again but the word that you used about governor polls and trying to intimidate the Weld County Quarter Commissioner Board of Commissioners. Excuse me that was the term that that Commissioner Freeman said they they. They will try to intimidate us. But it's not gonNA work You know I mean if past performance is any indicator of what the future holds. I can't help the think that the board of County Commissioners will say. Nah If governor Jerry pull us does try to take retaliatory action. It's going to be interesting as we were in the middle of a special edition of Noko. Now I know we'll be back personally and O'CONNELL beyond from nine to ten but gayle fallon with mornings with Gail six to nine tomorrow morning. We'll be unpacking a lot of this. But the the main takeaways that there's GonNa be way more information being introduced but these guidelines are allowing all businesses to open with guidelines. Set following the social distancing and really following a lot of the safer at home safe home guidelines gail but it's just not selecting which businesses get to adhere adhere to those. Yeah and I think that is what is so significant because we saw for example the protests across the country we saw the protests in Denver. Because they got to the point where far too many of us were saying. You know what you are encroaching on some very sacred trusts our constitutional rights our liberties and our freedom center. We know that the government God Love Him They're kind of like a camel with the nose under the tent. And sometimes you give them an inch. You don't get that inch back. In fact you lose a mile right. It's I know there's a ton of people that have questions about it and goodness gracious. There's a there's a lot to unpack here gale. I'll open it up to you for for some final thoughts. Final comments on what we're seeing with this safer at work. Guideline that is being implemented effective. Monday April twenty-seventh in Weld County. Well once again when I so appreciate it about about The Board of Weld County Commissioners Commissioners issuing this safer at work initiative which will go into effect April twenty-seventh apparently apparently reportedly well any or could be called conjecture Two the governor's Chagrin is the fact that once again. It's up to us to make this work. Be Responsible and again. Tanner like you. I don't WanNa get all preachy. But y'all know what to do it's just exercise common sense if you want to get back to any semblance of normalcy and do it quickly as quickly as possible. Of course it's going to be very faced process. We understand that we know we might not get back to whatever. The new normal is going to look like for months but the bottom line is it's our decision. It's our choice. Not The government's and you know tomorrow on my show I would love to hear from you as the consumer from you as a business owner on the heels of this news from the Board of Weld County Commissioners. What you think about it. Because I've heard from so many business owners small business owners that are struggling in weld county throughout the state around the country The bottom line is they are. They're on their last legs aside and the only way they can survive. I mean they're they're they're digging deep. They're borrowing money from everybody taken out loans and the only way they can survive is to get back to work and they're happy to do whatever it is. They have to do to make it work. Now there's no doubt about it. And that was the whole premise. Of how the Noko? No now show started is has our business is going to be operating. Because we'RE GONNA get another wave now that that I know tonight they're gonNA start implementing hit. This is how we're going to do things. This is how we're going to go so again that. Kfi text line or whether it's gail show my show. Whatever the case is three one nine nine six you can text. The text line were shared between the two of us. Have some answers for you released. We'll We'll pretend that we've got some answers or or talk to somebody smarter than US right. Ooh That's what I do all the time. That's my claim to fame mine. People smarter than me and that's not hard to do that as well. Gail. Thank you so much for tonight. Thanks for being flexible. Appreciate it. We'll hear from you tomorrow morning at six. Am So thank you for. Thanks for joining US joining US tonight. Absolutely right back to you. It's been a pleasure thanks. This has been a special edition of Noko now for all the updates.
