"Line is Larry Gaddis. He's a Williamson county tax assessor collector. Hey, Larry, just real quick your thoughts on the things are going to be voted on this week that has to do with property taxes at the capitol. I'm sure you've got some thoughts and opinions on all of that. Yes, sir. Go ahead. How are you doing guys? Good. Great. So, you know, the whole one percent sales tax thing concerns me. Now, I've got a, you know, the these bills are ever changing. So they're going they might be going to conference committee and get changed out of that. So what you see today is gonna may end up to be something different tomorrow. But you know, what's been reported on is that HD three the school funding Bill is going to lower school taxes by proximity four cents or the maintenance operations that and so four cents on a three hundred thousand dollar home is about one hundred and twenty dollars. That's ten dollars. A month is is a huge property tax relief that the legislature is going to bring you ten dollars a month and a one percent sales tax. You could easily have been in extra two or three hundred dollars a year on on that additional one percent of show. Hey. Really failed to see the savings. They're actually going to be taking more money out of people's pockets. I I think in the long run, and what's not being addressed. And and this is where the voters has to come in. And and talk to the governing body that the only way they need less money is to spend less money. So that that's not any of the conversation. That's being had is how do we spend less money in government in general right now, the state is just gonna take more of your money and make the schools take a little bit less of your money. And that's frustrating to me because it's it's not helping anybody. They're still going to be the same amount or or more money coming out of your pocket. If you live in the state of Texas, and it's very frustrating. I it feels like you're robbing Peter to pay Paul. It's just a shell game. This one category may go down but a couple of other. Categories are going to go up. And that's that's an assessment. I haven't heard others say that. Yeah. You may save ten bucks a month on your property taxes. But you'll spend hundreds of additional dollars a year with the sales tax increase of one set. That's a good point. Larry, do they think we're too stupid to figure that out? Well, did they believe so? Yeah. And and unfortunately, they're going to break their arms, patting themselves on the back bringing you properties, actually. And it was going to ask you, how do you see this playing out? But but in reality, it could all change a lot this week. But once you go to those various conference committees. I mean. It could there. What you see on the table today may change probably not going to change drastically. But it it will change the minutia the details of the bills. So we still don't know exactly where this is going to end up, and and I'm actually about the park my truck here in Austin right now making with a state legislator about one of his bills and gonna talk to them about tweaking it a little bit to make it a better Bill for for all Texans. And we'll we'll see where it ends up. It's going to be interesting. All right. Larry gaddis. I appreciate you. Thank you very much for calling the show that today. Good to hear from you.

"Welcome back to the MC weird news podcast. We are continuing to talk about some strange news stories, and we are going from a giant tubs of macaroni and cheese to a sheriff who's using cardboard cutout deputies to fight crime. Sounds great. According to the Williamson county sheriff whose name is Robert Choji. He is partnering deputies with cardboard cutouts to deter motorists from speeding. The sheriff has tweeted a video this week show in one of these fake deputies and the deputy is standing there pointing a radar gun at oncoming traffic. So the deputies it's not like a out in the car. No standing there. Okay. Which seems way less probable, but. Yeah. Lift likely to be believed were easily see when it's outside the car. It's not a real person. Yup. You would think, but according to the sheriff it is a creative way to solve a problem without really working. Really working the problem. I mean, that's true that yeah. You went for cheaper route. And he continued to say when you're going twenty thirty miles per hour. You see the silhouette your mmediately breaking in slowing down. I guess and this reminds me I think it's I wanna say it's super troopers. It's the beginning of some silly Cup comedy where the guy puts like a mannequin in the Cup in the front seat of the car and goes off fishing, but it's still a cop car. So the people like slowed out, and I'm like, I bet this does actually work, but you would think you'd at least want to hide a little the fakeness. Yup. I mean like you said he's not really working the problem. I'm gonna put this cardboard here. And we're going to go off and play canasta. We'll be back. It'll be fine. We'll be fine. He said that well the cardboard deputies are not going to be filling out any quotas. They do appear to be deterring speeders. He has recently tested them in school zones with real deputies who were stationed nearby and he said we didn't get one speeder. All these people were breaking before they got to the cutout, or as they were approaching the cutout, although I do feel like if I saw that I would immediately pass the cut out and then just speed up out of spite. Well, I'd be rubbernecking. Wait was that a real person impossibly caused an accident? That's true. Not not a Cup Cup. Not at what was that? I could see that. That'd be stopping to be like what the heck? Yeah. It's like at least take, you know, like an old car, you don't need and put it somewhere. So that where people where the card normally sits to deter speeders, right? And then you need anything. And we only see the car were good. I think that would do the same problem. Maybe they were short on cars. That's possible. Cut outs would be cheaper though. Who makes cutouts of cops. Like don't know. What is the company, and what are you normally make these four people who make the Elvis cutouts? I'm hoping it's not for like sheriff deputies who are short of people like sheriff departments that. We don't have enough officers. Let's just put out cutouts. Also, this is not just like the silhouette. It's like a full it looks like a sticker like full print like they took a picture of someone. Okay. So it's not even just like one color at got an I would hope it wouldn't be one color. That would not be believable at all. Yeah. I mean. Oh from a fire like maybe someone I don't know. Anyway, apparently, it's working for them. So good on you feel. This is going to be like the people version of those als that they put on building. Get used to it. So it doesn't scarecrows. It doesn't do anything. Any more start hanging out with the cutout? It'd be like, oh, I know the cutouts going to be at this corner from whatever to whatever. So it's fine. I can speed. This covered corner. We're good. Yeah. We'll see. Also, another story. This is not about police now, this is a firefighter so kind of related, but it is for a much happier story a firefighter had faked a fire at his own house. So that he proposed girlfriend. Okay. Yeah. Find proposal happy. But I'm starting to worry about like public service of young people trope. What are you doing? This all happened in November. And apparently just as this couple was preparing to host a holiday party. So man talk about stressful time already for some reason..

"And so you get if you're bringing a takings claim, you get this kind of double whammy so that you can't get into a federal court basically on the on the takings claim, and it's not merely as they're this sort of exhaustion piece, but you get you get left out altogether, right? And then zipper, strong piece of this. Well, just let me just add the super strong piece. It's not clear how often this has happened, but certainly the possibility has been flagged and it may be. Happening where you get removal, the federal court, and then instant lame. Lampson kelly. There's no way that. Okay, that's so the idea here for the for the for the listeners who are not steeped in fed cords doctrine. The idea here is if you are sued. In state court by person asserting a federal question right that that the case arises under a federal law. And in this case it would because you're a student at claim under the fifth amendment which provides that you can't have your property, take him without just compensation. Then the defendant can remove it to federal court because we have a sort of policy questionable. In my view, I believe the policy saying federal courts for federal claims. And so you're saying, I see you in state court saying, hey, you make me, you're making me let all these people into my family graveyard. You've taken my property from me and you haven't paid me anything. I see you in state court. I, the defendant, I removed to federal court so far so good. And then I say, under the rule of Williamson county, this case must be dismissed. Correct. That seems a little mess. So even just as just as Rier said, you know, maybe we can just fix that problem was sentenced to say, you can't do that. You've sort of waved your Williamson county argument. If you remove. Yeah, that seems right. Yeah. And operation by waiver there seems appropriate. And so you know, that's really interesting because you know, I guess I would have thought that, and I guess this is you could come at this on Williamson county grounds or you could come at it on the what? Is it the the San Remo hotel? You said? Yes. And then there's this other pathways through that in some ways looks to me maybe like the most plausible route that the court will take partly because as best I read things doesn't take it doesn't take much of a change things. It seems like something that's already there and that is just to bring the case in the first instance in federal court under federal question jurisdiction. Right? So that would be the that's the simplest way through. It doesn't require getting rid of Williamson county. It doesn't require getting rid of San Remo hotel is just to say, well, look, if what you're concerned about here is a federal forum you can bring this because that's how, oh, I see jurisdiction. Works. Yeah, I see. So you would you would bring this suit in federal court, asking the state to give you the just compensation right in the same way that you would have in state court and will there's no necessarily Williamson county problem with that because yeah, I'm saying, you know, it's a question of standing. I think you're about to deny me. You know, my injuries imminent, you've taken my property for compensation, doesn't seem to be forthcoming. So I my, I'm, I've got this concretely particularized injury that is imminent and I'm suing in federal court about it. And if you wanna pay me some money than the suit has over if it's if it's a fair amount, and if you don't will litigate whether it was taking in federal court and and you ought to be able to bring the state law piece of that in federal court because.

Let's go somewhere in Austin and talk to a woman with a beautiful name, Cheryl. This you're on the air. Good morning. And what's on your mind today? Back to often. And I'm wondering kind of tree to plant. In my yard, this kind of colorful and fast growing. Well, let's see if you wanted it for shade as well. Yes. Okay. 'cause there are some lower growing things like flame leaf MAC that'll just blow your mind with their fall color, but the best of fall color. I think would be the Texas red oak, and you plant the Shumar or the tech census, the Spanish show a lot of people call it. They're very similar the main differences that you typically see the shoe marred red oak, go straight up like a post. And then and canopies out beautifully in my gosh. And really for an oak tree. They're fast growing. I think you can for a long term big shade tree that's one of the faster growing. Now. There's another good tree that gets really good fall color. But I'd have to categorize it as slow growing that would be the Chinese to stash and. Of course, the native cherry tree grows like a weed very fast and gets yellow fall color a real yellow color. Texas ash would be another one. Now, the fall colors, not so brilliant. But it's pretty it's kind of a rosy color. But I think from my money the red oak if you've got room for a big oak. That's be much. Yes. Yeah. Okay. All right. Very good. All right. Yes, ma'am. Welcome back to Austin. Let's go to south Austin for our next caller, Janice. How are you today? I'm doing great. Thank you. What's that? I I can really large hot. And I feel them some organic potting soil. Electing soil. But what I'm finding? Whatever composition that soil had it is repelling water. So when I go water. Percolating just going to the side of the pot. Not going. Well itself. Okay. What should I do to amend that? Will you almost have to soak it so kit. So there's two things that could be happening either. The the they got real dry at some quite and the the soil has contracted from the edges of the pot. And so it is just running down the side, and your only hope there is to really soak it like put a dish under it. But if it's been out there, and it's getting all this rain. You know, it could be just two full of water, right? The other thing is if it is completely route beyond like that plant's been in there, a real long time and the roots are so thick in there. It will not absorb water. So that's some stuff to check. Well, these are planting pods are about four feet tall. So they're huge PA. I know it's not a root issue and their new planting. So I don't know what I was thinking. Maybe there was the competition of that soil. Well, if there is a lot. Yeah. If you've got us soil that has a lot of peat moss. Senate once peat moss gets dry. It is very hard to re wet and once it gets real wet. It's very slow to dry out. So, but if you bought a local, you know, manufactured potting soil, that's supposedly good. Then I'm not sure what's going on. But a four foot tall pot full of dirt was a little plant in the top of it. It's it's going to be a little bit problematic. I probably would have tried to get you to fill up. Most of the pot was something like, you know, recycled plastic bottles or rocks, or even chunks of styrofoam something where you only are putting in a couple of hit the max afoot.
