"From NPR news. This is all things considered. I'm Audie Cornish. And I'm Ari Shapiro in Phoenix police are collecting DNA samples from all male employees of a long term care facility a patient there gave birth to a child the woman's tribe says she has been in a persistent vegetative state for more than a decade. Stephanie is a health reporter for the Zona Republic and as e central dot com, and she has been covering this story, which may not be appropriate for some listeners. Thank you for joining us. Thank you for having me the facility where this place is called hacienda healthcare. Tell us about what happened there. On December twenty ninth. The Phoenix police department got a call that there was an infant in distress at hacienda Healthcare's hacienda to deal, Los Angeles facility. And when they arrived, they found that there was a woman who was incapacitated and she had recently given birth. The police held a press conference that you attended today. They are calling this a case of sexual assault. What else did you learn there? They are asking for the public's assistance. They said that this is the highest priority for the department, and they would like the public's assistance. But they're also have a wide scope out of people that they are testing for DNA samples, they wouldn't specify who. But it's they said it's a large number of individuals. Tell us about the condition of the mother what are you now? Well, the mother is still in the hospital with her baby, and they were both recovering. And she is a member of the San Carlos Apache tribe in southeastern Arizona. That's right. And the tribe issued a statement saying that they are working with Phoenix police on this case and the family has a lawyer they released a statement saying that the baby was born a baby boy born into a loving family. And that the baby will be well cared for. What has the response been from the facility that was supposed to be caring for this woman who was impregnated while apparently in a persistent vegetative state? Well, one thing we don't know is whether staff knew that she was pregnant before she gave birth. I mean, the police didn't get the call until the baby was born. So we don't know whether the staff knew or if they just found out, then we also know that the CEO who was in charge at the time when she became pregnant and gave birth stepped down on Monday. What kind of facility is hacienda healthcare? Well, the facility this woman was in is an intermediate described as an intermediate level facility. For people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Hacienda. Also cares for it's got several programs to provide medical and therapeutic services for medically fragile infants children and young adults. Obviously there are legal considerations. Here. Police are investigating. But there are also medical oversight questions here. This was a facility that was supposed to be caring for its patients and appears to have agreed to sleep failed at that responsibility. What what are the implications there? Well, that's a good question that we are trying to find out ourselves. It's part of our coverage and the police are working with several state agencies including adult protective services, the division of developmental disabilities in the department of health services, but we are trying to find out who is actually watch dogging for these vulnerable patients in these facilities. I mean is it just their family? Or who from the state is is watching out for them. And that's something we're trying to figure out and just briefly. How unusual is it for all the male employees of facility like this to be asked to give a DNA sample to the police? How how how precedent? Exactly, yeah. You know? I don't know the answer to that question. But I do know that they can compel the employee's to give their DNA they're asking them to do it voluntarily. But if they don't they can get a quarter and force them to do that. That was something that came out of the press conference today. Stephanie NS is a health reporter for the Arizona Republican as e central dot com. Thank you. Thank you. Democrats know, why voters sent them to Washington this year healthcare in their campaigns. They promised to protect the Affordable Care Act and the access to coverage that a guaranteed for many people many went even further promising Medicare for everybody. Now, the Democrats have control of the house. Those ambitions are meeting up with reality NPR's, Alison kodjak reports in her first speech, a speaker of the house last week Nancy Pelosi made it clear that she knows healthcare is why voters sent Democrats to congress in the past two years. The American people have spoken. Tens of thousands of public events were held hundreds of thousands of people turned out millions of calls were made countless families even sit little children are little lobbyist. Little log is bravely came forward to tell their stories, and they made a big difference there mandate she says to lower healthcare costs prescription drug prices and protect people with preexisting. Medical conditions on their first day. Democrats made their first move they voted to allow the house to intervene in a lawsuit to protect the Affordable Care Act. The house will join several state attorneys general and appealing Texas. Judge's ruling that the law is unconstitutional. Both with control of just one chamber of congress and with a hostile president Democrats power to influence health policy. May be limited congressman Frank Pallone is head of the energy and commerce committee, which has jurisdiction over parts of the Affordable Care Act in an interview he acknowledged that Democrats will likely have to settle for hearings and lawsuits because it will be hard to pass substantial legislation. You know at a time when the Trump administration is doing all this sabotage of the ACA. I mean, I think the focus really has to be on trying to prevent the sabotage and making sure the is strengthened according to Pallone that sabotage includes Trump's decision to stop reimbursing insurance companies for discounts. They're required by law to give to their lowest income clients and the department of health and human services change to the guidelines that allow people to buy insurance policies that don't carry the full benefits required by the ACA. I think a lot of it is not even legal, right? In other words it via. Hates the law. So he's planning hearings to examine whether the changes are illegal or I think if you do some good oversight and find out what the sabotage consists of then you can say, well, this isn't allowed under the law. And then you either take it to court or you, you know, try to get legislation passed I don't think we can underestimate how important that is when decisions that are being made our question. I'm an official have to defend them. That's Chiquita Brooks lake shore, managing director at Manatt health strategies. She says for the last two years, the focus in Washington has been on repealing the Affordable Care Act that energy canal shift to examining what the administration is doing and putting forth, other ideas and other proposals some of which might generate bipartisan agreement there may be some Republicans support for shoring up the ACA in the last Congress Republican Senator Lamar Alexander. Proposed some Bill to stabilize the ACA. Marketplace's Pallone acknowledges Democrats plans are much less ambitious than the Medicare for all proposals that many of his colleagues touted during their campaigns. I just think it's unlikely that we could ever pay us it. So I don't want to prioritize that that he says is the reality of a divided congress..

"For next year. And the projections are not quite as rosy as they were a few months ago, personal finance columnist. Russ wiles at the Zona Republic has some steps you might consider taking Russ. What are you hearing? Well, I mean, we're still in a growth expansion, Gordon. I mean, I don't think anyone not too many people are really calling outright recession next year, but the consensus from what I can tell and I'm starting to get a lot of these forecasts coming in, you know, growth might slow that certainly so we're not gonna have the tax reform jolt to help next year. Like we did this year. I mean, there's trade tensions interest rates are doing arising the stock market certainly seems a predict that thing will be stolen next year. So I mean, I think there's more caution certainly than there was acute months ago. All right. So you've got these five things worth heating as you say what's number one pay attention to your cash holding explain. CD's? Typical deposit money market funds. People haven't probably paid all that much attention to them recently ears because he'll go up and so low but now starting to climb a bit. So there are maybe reasons to shop around and also I think you just want to check those what really the safety of the stability of these products are for example, FDIC coverage you can get on CDs. But you don't get him on money market mutual funds, for example. And I I just think it's maybe time for people not to. Desktop these instruments that they've been using and pay a little bit more tension to say a short term bond funds. Some people say might actually outperform stocks next year. A lot of conservative. Investments are going to outperform stocks.

Real quick before we get out of here. There is a great article in the Zona Republic newspaper this weekend pointing out, you know, the United States is the one country that has really walked away from the Paris accord, very publicly we're technically still in it until twenty twenty but the president has made no more commitments to it. And here's the great irony of it is worthy only country actually complying with the Paris accord. We're not even in it. We're the ones actually making measurable rollbacks. Now, interestingly enough the. The Paris rioting situation. It's not just about the fuel tax, but the fuel tax release the impetus for it in a number of other clean energy issues related to the fuel tax global warming. For example, the French government now wants to increase taxes on cars, they impose new regulations that have taken a lot of cars off the road driven up costs for consumers really taxing people out of the ability to drive, but in addition to that there are a bunch of free market reforms in the business space that Macron has done that has also caused the right? So it's not just fuel. But that he actually is the primary motivator out there the fuel tax, and they're renewable energy standards and whatnot. They've imposed the media though is doing their best to avoid talking about those focuses on the free market reforms. And it's just it's dishonest. What we're seeing here is that the environmentalist left solutions for climate change, a are not palatable to most people and as a result. They're gonna have a hard time advancing their aggressive agenda and it bears watching the story. I don't have a ton of time to go into it tonight, but pay attention to the story, and how the media is not covering it. Honestly, Eric.

"We'll have some tips in about twenty minutes. The regular season is over the bowl matchups are set. And now, we have weeping and gnashing of teeth over which teams have been left out of the college football playoff. Plus a call to expand the format from four to perhaps eight or even sixteen teams sports columnist. Greg more at the Zona Republic says too many people are having the wrong debate first off. However, he says the university of central Florida undefeated in two straight seasons has a gripe that merits consideration since it has not been invited to compete for a national championship. Greg. What we have look what we've got is a playoff system where teams from the largest conferences have an opportunity to compete for the national championship. We've had this playoff for five years now and in five years, we've never had a school outside of what they call the power five conferences with the exception of Notre Dame. But everybody recognizes Notre Dame as part of the ACC for a lot of different reasons. Plus Notre Dame's just Notre Dame table that for a second and consider a school such as UCF. Well, nobody beats them. This is the second year in a row they're kicking everybody's tail and they don't have an opportunity to compete for the national championship. And is that not unfair on its face. Okay. Then the other side of that argument is actually, but do we really think that a school like you? A school that doesn't compete at the highest level of college football competition could reasonably compete with Alabama could reasonably compete with Clemson could reasonably compete with the larger more traditional powerhouse school. If a school such as you Boise state before it Utah before it wants to make it to that top tier do they need to prove that they're a dominant program rather than just a flash in the pan. Great team. Now, those are the two sides of the argument, and I've got thoughts about what we ought to do with that. Okay..

It is. You know, no surprise messages are almost overwhelmingly negative in all the races. The Senate race in particular has been pretty ugly from the start and people here have seen it across the board for us. This is a little bit different. Just in the sense that we are in increasingly politically, competitive states. So this is something that yeah. We've seen politics get ugly for four, but it didn't, you know, carpet bomb us this way.

This has been a significantly sharper increase over the last midterm election was at the measurement. Yeah. It's compared to the midterms even compared to twenty sixteen. We're seeing a lot more action than what we're accustomed to. And I think it's again, a reflection of the state's growing political value on board. Arizona used to be just a solidly red state. It might still be a red state, but it's a far lighter shoe these days Democrats he'll pretty optimistic about their chances in a number of house races. Again, the Senate race is really too close to call. And so we are just, you know, inundated with these ads overwhelmingly negative and in a lot of different races. And a lot of different corners of the state can the lower ballot candidates actually get airtime. They squeezed out at times by the the Senate and governor's race. You know, I think that they can they can get on. The fact is that they don't have as much financial horse power to do it. So at any price, they would've been relatively low octane campaigns. We have a Democrats running for example in each House Ways. They are challenging that's new for us, and these are some low budget affairs. We even have Republicans running in places where they don't normally. So they are at least contesting races. But again, these folks are pretty far away from having TV money at any great quantity anybody's saying that the saturation or perhaps consistent negatively can actually work against a candidate. Or is it TV is king and candidates are going with it. No look people universally negative advertising. But the fact is it does sort of help define your phone didn't so people still do it.

"Popular warehouse stores there won't be for lack of trying surprise a growing suburb north west of Phoenix has put on almost a full court press to attract COSCO's business more from gen Fifield city watchdog reporter for the Zona Republic. Jen, give us a little history. Well, it's starting to back a few years ago, they hosted a reached they'll survey asking people what kind of retailers they want in the city and Cocteau came back overwhelmingly more than half a residents replied that they wanted one. So it all started from there their first of their shenanigans started with when they took a picture with signs and balloons a few of them were literally jumping off the ground congratulating Cosco being number one on their most sired retailer list all escalated from there very quickly. Like how else what else has happened? Won't they need a postcard and send it to surprising. Was she? Cosco thing wish you were here. They be the totem pole literally constructed totem pole of top retailers and put Cosco on the top and sent them a birthday card, and then they decided to throw an entire birthday party for the retailer with Costco cake, of course. Wow. What's with the obsession for the folks who live in surprise, Arizona? Well, I mean, people do like Costco in a lot of places. But I think it's the fact that they do have to drive a lot of places and surprise they live about forty five minutes from central Phoenix. And they'd want just access to that store in their own town. Wow. Costco, must be scratching its head thinking boy, you know, if we go to surprise, Arizona. We could charge like twenty five dollars per gallon of milk people pay for it. Because they worried about this. Why not how how could they maintain? Silence. When there's been such an effort made for them. Don't ask me. I even tweeted at them. I sent them a list of questions that was pretty ridiculous. I asked them they turned thirty five this year. And I asked them how it felt to be middle age. I ask them what they wish for for their birthday stolen. No comment from them. Wow. We're speaking with Jen Fifield city watchdog reporter at the Arizona Republic part of the USA today network. Can she's written a piece entitled and Arizona city wants a Costco, so bad that it through the company a birthday party? And she's talking about the city of surprise, Arizona. City officials feel like they are on the verge of getting Cosco. Perhaps the economic development director says that they're closer than ever which is going to cause even more speculation on Facebook live at monitor this almost daily. So we'll see and they're not I think you pointed out there's there's there's one kind of in the region, but not really close by. The closest Costco to surprises about twenty minutes away for a lot of surprise residents. In the neighboring town of Glendale that's too far for a lot of people go. Thanks, jen. Jen Fifield city watchdog reporter for the Arizona Republic. It is thirty minutes now after the hour.

You need, to vote but unfortunately sixty two of those polling places without a quick were not set up and ready for. Voters, on Tuesday morning now it sounds like there was some sort of miscommunication between the Maricopa County recorder's office and a contractor they were using to actually set up data quit meant a lot of those machines We were told weren't even set up or plugged in and connected to the internet service to be able to accept voters. When polls opened at six AM you would reported that the recorder's office who handled this process they, knew about these problems beforehand they were trying to. Deal with it overnight why did they. End up still. Using these machines? If they knew they weren't working well they were working. At most of the sites, why they didn't implement some kind of backup strategy for those sites that. Were set up is something that we've been asking along with a lot of other questions they kind of went radio silent on us yesterday so we've been trying to figure. Out was, there a backup plan in place how long did it take for all of these sites to open we were. Still, hearing from voters that they were having difficulties in being asked to fill out provisional ballots which a lot of voters don't like to do because. It means that it won't actually be Counted until later in the week that can't be automatically counted like you expect it to be when you go to a polling place right of course is it clear. Yet who is to blame for. This whether it be the the government or. The company that created these machines both of those? Entities are trading blame bright now the, county recorder has said that he takes full responsibility but there was discussion that you know it was the contractor who failed to send enough technicians to set all of this equipment now we got our hands. On the contract between the county and the company. Yesterday and it does appear that the, section of that contract that talks about? How many people should have been available to set up the equipment? Could have been read in two different ways and it was in fact read in two different ways by both the county and the contractor now why a discussion hadn't occurred prior to Monday in which Everything was confirmed that's one of our big questions as well so. Just just one less thing we heard from some voters. At the top who were unhappy with the situation is there now concern that this could erode. Trust in the system in advance of very important November elections It. Is definitely something that is concerning to voters. There will be a lot more people voting in November we expect and there is some concern that voters might, be frustrated or not trusting of the process to something that we're talking about across the country, right now Jessica Obame is Maricopa County reporter for the Zona Republic Jessica thank you for your reporting thank you.
