"Is april fifteenth tax day. Except it's not the.

Luckily my colleague. ronnie. Mola is here to explain ronnie. Hey peter you know used to sit next to each other day after day after day and then the pandemic came and you went away to an undisclosed location somewhere north of new york city as it going up there colder than where you are but pretty good. It's colder and are your taxes any different because you because you live upstate. So for me. It's not that different Because i used to live in brooklyn. Now i've moved upstate within the same state so it's just a matter of you know just paying taxes where i live but to another state. Say like texas or tennessee. You might be a different situation. Why is up. Your taxes are generally based on where you're physically doing the work like where you're sitting in sweatpants and typing on your computer except in the case of these convenience role states which were these states that say hey we're gonna tax you based on where your job is located which kind of just like a whole wrench into how this normally works. So the convenience will states are states like new york arkansas connecticut. There's a they're seven of them and convenience rule states say that they're going to tax you based on where your office is where your job has an office not based on where you're physically working So that's obviously a big deal in the pandemic when a lot of people are no longer working Where their offices and they might be in a completely different state okay. I'm half following. So let's say you had moved to texas along with everyone else in technology. What would happen to your taxes for your current job at vox which is based in new york city since if i had moved to texas a state that has no income tax and it sounds like that's gonna be awesome because i'm going to get to keep more of my money because new york where my job has. An office is a convenience rule state. I actually still have to pay new york income tax. If my job had an office in another state say like tennessee or florida or any of the other non convenience role states i would pay taxes based on where i'm living in that case it would be texas.

R. A.. welcome back twenty seventeen will be remembered as one of the deadliest years in Tennessee's history in the opioid crisis in that year Tennessee lost over twelve hundred souls due to opioid overdose at puts Tennessee and the ranking is one of the hardest hit states in the epidemic and the numbers continue to be staggering in twenty eighteen over six million prescriptions were written for pain killers and perhaps the hardest number to stomach the number of children born with neonatal abstinence syndrome that's basically where a child is born in drug withdrawal. there is a positive outlook in the crisis the new laws have helped but that's really only half the battle joining me now is doctor Lisa Pearcy she is commissioner for the Tennessee department of health welcome to Tennessee matters doctor fear see how large is the opioid problem in Tennessee the opioid problem affects every Tennessean whether it's family or friends loved ones or yourself one thousand two hundred and sixty eight Tennesseans died in twenty seventeen from opioid related overdoses I and so it's a problem that affects all of us in Tennessee all in recent years is been on awful lot of attention thrown at this epidemic and one would question at this point have we made any progress in really addressing it we have made a progress in addressing the crisis but you know that's been through a multifaceted effort one of those things is through changing are prescribing practices we've been educating prescribers and then enforcing those rules of marks prescribers to make sure that we're not adding to the problem from the medical system you know another thing we're doing is raising awareness of opioid abuse and waste that folks can get help and so we have made some strides but we still got a long ways to go well you mentioned awareness one of the new campaigns arrive understand Tennessee is involved in is called the Tunis he faces of opioids what is that Tennessee faces of opioids campaign is an exciting initiative that the department of health in partnership with the centers for disease control and prevention has undertaken to really put a face on the opioid crisis and what's the main goal and purpose of this campaign the goal of this campaign is to really say this affects us all in every county in every city in every part of Tennessee people don't really think that those can. things happen to me or my types of professions or my types of social class but that's the point of the entire campaign is to show that it does affect us all in many different ways on the website is T. in face of opioids dot com along with statistics and information or some very personal stories of people who have struggled with this crisis in some way how did you choose them we solicited all kinds of input for the campaign we've got people who have been affected personally by addiction we've got family members who have lost loved ones I we have professionals both medical professionals legal law enforcement professionals educators every person from every kind of walk of life is represented in the S. and that was to get a lot of different perspectives on how opioids affect each one of those people in their jobs and in their lives and it gives us a really broad understanding of the deep and wide impact that opioids half we are talking to doctor Lisa appears he she has a commissioner for the Tennessee department of health we're talking about the opioid crisis in the state of Tennessee in some of the ways the department of health is trying to help reduce the number of drug overdose stats what are some of the steps you guys are taking first and foremost our goal at the department is prevention and one of the ways that we prevent things in in any capacity but specifically in opioids is through education and a lot of people don't set out to get addicted to opioids they get addicted when they are had treated for medical procedures and even educating people on proper prescribing both on the physician side and on the patient's side educating them on the warning signs of what might be too much also education as far as it goes for treatment if somebody thinks they have an issue. to seek treatment and how to how to get help also we look at what we call harm reduction strategies so things that we can do if somebody does have an addiction issue and is struggling with opioid over use and things like overdose reversal agents and really ways to get people into treatment when they need it so is this part of the Tennessee together initiative. Tennessee together initiative was an effort first I started a couple of years ago and this is another iteration of that type of work it's separate from that but it is complementary to it Tennessee together it started out with some prescribing limits and some other regulatory changes and it really highlights the need for a multi disciplinary effort so we're hitting it from the medical front from the patient's side of things from the faith based and community portion it really takes all hands on deck to deal with a crisis this large so it's come a long way but it sounds like there's a long way to go what are some of the next steps for the program and for the department the next steps are to continue to educate of folks and make them aware of the issue we are continuing to promote our Tennessee faces of opioids campaign and actually still soliciting additional stories and the more stories that we have the wider audience we reach people look at the stories inside you know that really resonates with me and I can see myself in that story and and it internalizes it for them and help them to to seek treatment or or education even more so we'll continue with those efforts and all the other great efforts are there going on statewide the website again he is T. N. phase of opioids dot com if you'd like to know more there's a lot of resources at that site and a lot of information about the plans that the state has worked on how does all this get funded fortunately or unfortunately depending on how you want to look at it this has garnered a lot of national attention the good part of that is a lot of resources our resources are being deployed today as a both on a state level and a federal level and so there are a lot of grievance available and just says we've used for this for the centers for disease control but they're also state local and federal grants. being used to spread this message which is really important so be on the funding is there a need for help from people anybody who wants to contribute time or energy you know a lot of times people think oh well I'm not a counselor or I don't really know how to deal with this addiction but often times people that are struggling with addiction or have just gone into recovery need jazz some basic blocking and tackling help things like can you watch My Baby while I go to a meeting can you give me a ride to my treatment center in at you know bringing food over or just supporting people with a kind word or a Pat on the back can.

"The exception of some northern or some southern counties yeah long behind we get a more yeah so but everybody yeah that is hearing the show is under the jurisdiction weather service office go to their website find out which amazing information come back we talked about be right back the National Weather Service on Tennessee matter Tennessee back welcome to Tennessee matters we are talking with Chrissy Hurley from the National Weather Service office in Nashville about some of the severe weather bands that occur across the state at this time of year and one of them one of the biggest areas flash flooding and this is a yearly concern and it is one that you should take very seriously Christy how it how we've been faring this year with comparison to other years well you know this year I think there have been more flash flood finality at looking at a whole across the United States I'm here locally out in the state of Tennessee we've actually had four and and we have one in February not far by from Nashville so you know we've been when we get those rainy patterns and when those the rains come down very fast in a short amount of time you know that's when we can get in trouble and you know I think most of the people are almost over half of the fatalities have been people driving in two flooded roads and you know I've never ever grasp that concept because you would never drive across the road I had a wildfire going across that unless you know you had No Way Out right so why do we drive across roads that are completely covered with rushing water you know the only possible explanation it's not a good one is a lot of people probably see the water got up I got that that that mode the but that's not the case in a water situation right any kind of any inconvenience to turn around you know if you don't know where you are you gotta read load your GPS and figure out you know a different way to go and you know at night it's really difficult to tell if that road has a whole lot of water on it or can I clear it so you know I I think that is that is part of the issues and that's why it makes flash flooding so dangerous and I think your your middle Tennessee I think we we do some of us that have been here for awhile we pay attention the flights I think we definitely pay attention to them we you know we are more cognizant of them since two thousand ten but you know you still see people who are going through these intersections plowing through we have reports in February people going through close roads were barricaded their get out of their vehicle move the barricades go through yeah back out of their vehicle the barricades back so close the road backs that was nice of them and they go on their way it is it's really difficult on that you know we have a little saying turn around don't drown and we really start with young kids with that saying and I tell them all the time and I do school talks you know go ahead and tell your parents turn around don't drown because sometimes as adults I think we think all well my my S. U. B. can make it through there but I'm telling you all it takes is twelve to eighteen inches of really fast moving water to take your tires off the road and that's really scary if it's moving fast enough you will lose control of your vehicle would you say water rescues in vehicles are the number one flooding it related instance here yeah yeah absolutely you know not as you know there are people that time you'll play in the creeks and streams and that we've had you know issues within your hiking and that kind of thing but the majority of a flood in says are driving and you know I think most the time you think well the fire department rescue squad they'll get there but a lot of times the water moves so quickly yeah there's no chance for them to come rescue me well that that is absolutely stunning to think about when big that you would be that people would actually go out and from the standpoint of somebody else and save me I'm gonna make this bad decision and somebody else will come to my rescue they're putting their lives in danger to do that absolutely I think maybe you know we it rains here all the time you know we have to understand is we have heavy rain all the time so I think sometimes it just it just doesn't think again and unless you're thinking about me and you know I don't know if the road still there underneath that your big water your area or or why it or the the and the water is moving really fast you just sometimes you just don't think about it and then you get in a routine if it's the same way you drive every day you think why can make it and unfortunately I mean flooding is I hear in middle Tennessee you know here lately has been the number one weather related killer lease over the past what probably ten years so it was something that we definitely stress over you know we have flies we have tornadoes and then the heat is the third and relate as far as tornadoes go our season for that we get two of them a year we get one in the spring and one in the fall is there one that wins out on statistically the worst usually it's the month of April but it's a you know it mother nature's she's she's a funny one for us lately and over the last I think it was like six or seven years we haven't had any needs big time severe weather in our traditional screen tornado season I think that the biggest tornado mind when we look at the stats heads in July you know it's been a very unusual around here and it's only a matter of time it is what we always preach but April may and March our top three twenty no mind statistically since nineteen fifty when you average it all out our secondary season our fourth most active twenty a month is November we get this summer June July August is typically tropical are related educating tropical storm if you think back to hard being a September two thousand seventeen it was kinda decaying over here we had a couple of tornadoes in around Nashville from that so usually the summertime tornadoes aren't as strong as what you would see in the spring and fall so the tornado threat is one of them but a lot of people also with the summer months you get sunshine and eventually you get into some some very intense heat and that takes its toll as well yeah you know me in the past couple weeks has been pretty brutal as far as he eats and luckily we got a nice repeat now but you know she is one of those things that can really sneak up on you you know growing up in the south what we're used to the heat humidity you know the people complain about it but we're used to it but I'm telling you no matter how much you can get used to it you over exert yourself and you don't hydrate then you can go down here all very very quickly you can start with you know he exhaustion which can rapidly deteriorate to heat stroke and we saw here would do what he struck the tally in the news I hear recently with the football player the X. tightened so I think that is you know something that you gotta pay attention with you know the elderly children even out cutting grass if you're not you're listening to your body and and you know you know it's one of those days then you know maybe take it easy way to the evening hours early morning hours and make sure you drink plenty of water typically what are the hottest months for Tennessee well for eyes you know man it's usually July and August you know it seems like June was a really really hot around here but I hate to say that we haven't seen the full summer just yet we typically I think is like mid August is our peak heating highest temperatures and then I'm a tall G. the temperature starts to go down after that I think it's about like August fifteenth or so and then things start cooling off statistically so you know we've had years where mid September we're still hitting your night low nineties with a lot of humidity so you know July and August are really are months where you have to watch out for heat and you know even if you have a working really speaks up on you is during the beginning of the season or if it's been kind of cool out and then you get this your own voice jury N. began begins to get really hot here you know if you haven't been used to it for a week then I can really impact you any not even realize it meteorology and so fascinating from the hazards all the way to the science of how old the atmosphere works and the National Weather Service actually offers some free services to kinda help educate and train and even be able to give back to the National Weather Service in times of need with severe weather right yeah you know I mean weather is one of those things that everybody talks about everybody always talks about in most of the time people have an interest in it and what we do here at the National Weather Service we have different programs that we set up most the time in the fall and then early spring other call this storm spotter programs the sky warn storm spotter program in where we go out of the community or we can also do an online where we train people to become stronger spotter so that way they know what they're looking at what to look for and it's really especially helpful if you have a family member that's really into whether that loves whether or that's terrified whether it helps them understand that every time we say a twenty of threat does not mean you're the worst tornado outbreak known to mankind that sometimes at twenty three I can just be weak brief tornadoes so it it we provide this educational opportunity for free during the spring and fall severe weather seasons and a lot of times if you go to our website will have a list a calendar list I win we provide this training weather dot gov and you click on on the map where national is and we provide this training and will even though into kind of a weather one a one class and you learn more about your forecast models satellite imagery how to interpret radar it is so if you're really into it our website is a great resource we have these classes listen no began in September and continue into October and they're free of charge and that is just one of those great resources to educate yourself and you know kind of make a connection in the weather community and learn in and meet some of the forecasters that's kind of each forecaster does one of these presentations and yours just isn't good to learn from us and try to spread the weather message about what to say well Chrissy thank you so much for joining us if you do have interest in that weather dot gov there are as I said three offices that serve the Tennessee as a whole actually for you include hunts fell and each office has its own spotter training program is that correct or that is correct yeah each one of them had so if your west to the sea they go to different communities and west as seen in East Tennessee as well we don't make it to every county I in a given year but we try to make it everyone maybe once every three years so you'll look out on social.

"Long for party unique. And you're tuned into Tennessee matters. I'm Robert want. It is the first week of April. And this month is a month that while there's something that's been going on that. I think my impact a lot of people that are listening to this program to talk about it in detail right now is the executive director of the Tennessee human rights commission that is Beverly wants Beverly. Thank you so much for joining us today. How are you? I'm doing fine. Thank you. Tell us about April and how it relates to fair housing. All right. Well, April fairhousing designated by the US department of housing and urban development. And it is based on the fact that the fair housing act with actually passed and find into law on April eleven nineteen sixty eight as you will recall in nineteen sixty eight there were marches going on in Memphis around the garbage workers strike, and Dr king was killed on April the fourth exactly week before right? One week before in Dr Chang had been working on Friday of issues employment issues title seven had been passed in nineteen sixty four he was working on a variety of fishes just to make sure that was access in the public arena. And then housing was another issue. He was working on along with his really quality of life initiative for lack of better time to make sure that every American have the right to quality of life. But how they fair housing that kind of thing. And when he died Lyndon Johnson. Marshaled all of his political resources and put force the fair housing act in and got some sponsors will all it was sort of languishing to be real honest, and that people push that Bill forward, and as a result eleven on April, the eleven been Johnson with his political power and might and they collaborations that Dr king had built was able to get that law passed and signed and that's up a nominal short time period for some have been in congress, maybe a year or two and couldn't get any traction. And it does at that one in time Member States like Tennessee and others had employment or Bishen was working on housing. But it was not as defined in some other places. So the housing just in the nation in housing based on race color, national origin, sex religion disability. And for millions status. Disability and familial status came into being in nineteen eighty eight and then some of the others came later, but this is really a core of what their housing or Hibbitt, and it says that everyone is entitled to fair and Basant housing. And then there is this connection with affordable housing that Dr king was talking about with as he was dying housing should not only be accessible, but it should be affordable as well. We are going to talk in depth about April twenty nineteen and how that the efforts this month will will benefit the cause of fair housing. And where we go forward from here. But I think it's pretty important to frame our conversation for me to at least give a thumbnail sketch of what your background is. I don't mean to embarrass you with with with your accolades, but certainly just knowing what you've done and how you are on this program today and. And your personal experience. It really is important. So just to kind of let our audience know that Beverly she did go to Tennessee states. And she is born in Nashville. So she is Tennessee native, which she's also had extensive experience in this particular topic. She was she went to southern Illinois for graduate work as well as completing an executive leadership program at Duke as well as at Harvard in the JFK school of government beyond that, she's her, and she's a combined thirty years of experience in this particular topic also talking about civil rights, and she was the first executive director of the national fair housing training academy in Washington DC, and again, I don't bring that up to embarrass you. But it's important. I think for our audience to know, this is not your first day on the job with this subject. Is it? No, it's not. And I think one of the most important things is so people understand their rights and their responsibilities under the law so much time at the fair housing training academy with actually trading investigators on how they could go about evaluating allegations of discrimination in determining whether or not that's the nation could be found based on the evidence win vested. So we've done that. But we've also done something else. And we do a lot of this doing April. And that is that we make sure that everyone the public in general, fair housing providers in particular, and anyone else understand what the law is with the rights are under the law, and then what responsibilities to have under the law complaining party. You come to us and any of the in all of the area complex with allegations. But they have to provide certain information to us for us to be able to pursue that on Vesta gate those playing for housing providers if they are providing it they have certain. Responsibilities and that's to make sure that the tenant. They're aware. Religion is using letting that that the sodas and we'd be more than anything else. But there's also some other areas that they understand and explain the law of their staff so that they don't invert inadvertently deny someone or give them bad information that could lead to omission, which can lead to discrimination. So so we do a lot of that. So we do a lot of programming during the month of April to make sure that the public knows what what their housing is. What is covered what the responsibilities are? And then we also like to talk a little bit about the issues that we're seeing as well. I'm going to read between the lines here a little bit and feel free to just let me know if I'm on the right track. Or if I'm way off but port of what you just described there as far as especially where you're talking about the element where you're dealing with housing discrimination. I think back especially talking about the roots with with this particular topic going back to Martin Luther King and in February. Of course, celebrate black history month and part of what we talked about during that that time was just a general thought of some of the things that the doctor was trying to accomplish that here we are in two thousand nineteen while we've come a long way in addressing the issues. We still have a long way to go. And that's that's the was leaning more in conversation that we were having more about civil rights, and certainly more just about social attitudes. And there was some socio economic types of dynamics that we were discussing. There is well am I going to be accurate in applying? Some of those same descriptions to the topic here of fairhousing today. Yes, they're housing today. We get complaints or allegations of discrimination. That says they wouldn't they would not rent to me because I'm black. They wouldn't let me because he no they won Russa me because I have children or they fail to accommodate my disability. I need a rent to get up to the to the sidewalk and they wouldn't provide one. So those are some of the things that we see today. Imos of the kinds of things that the public needs to know what is that that is covered under the law. Smoke kind of thing. Dr king was working on what he believed to be adjusted -ociety society one in which everyone regardless of income made a decent living wage had access to fair and affordable housing and also was afforded certain access to public accommodations. And those are the major issue that probably this still major issues because in some places people are still trying to not access to housing for variety of reasons, sometimes multiple reasons sometimes their families with children that have disabilities that are not able to find housing because of their child's disability for whatever reason if there is one dynamic of the population that may be has I'll say advanced as far as where some there's. There's been discrimination. Or there's been some marginalization with regard to to to getting fair rights. If there's one that perhaps has has improved. The most would be the disabled. Love to say that there is a group that has. But what I find is that of pushing a pole with you will when we find that. It's that it's that there are advances being made in some areas we find that they're not advances made in the other areas that the persons with disabilities. There's still a lot of disadvantages and a lot of obstacles to their full participation in full access to housing. So that continues to be an ongoing issue, and it can vary, and we're talking about a very vast a very large field of individuals who can have a variety of disabilities, some a visible some or not. But it does not matter can be just as as damaging if they're visible or invisible. And then there accommodations that have to be made physical accommodations to facility sometimes that are not made. And by the way, the physical facilities there necessary. The costs are born. By the individual leasing or renting the apartment, so that they dependent it would not necessarily be the on landlord that would have to do that. But they would have to at least allow them to purchase that if you will our assistant in the purchasing of that particular accommodation or making the accommodation and then getting reimbursement for that. So when we look across the board, we know that we get the most complaints from persons with disability. Followed by race followed back a million status that individuals with children, and that's the largest number. Now. This housing is the most under reported civil rights issue to that. Nationally. There are probably based on latest statistics and believe their latest statistics was twenty sixteen. There were sixteen thousand instances of reported, they housing discrimination. Allegations of discrimination. And then we in Tennessee last year in twenty eight teen at four hundred eighteen calls, alleging discrimination and leave. We filed close to a hundred and forty complaints, and we closed the hundred and twenty those numbers are pretty small compared to what we do in limit where the number is up with a four four hundred. Plus, so that gives you an idea a lot of times when I talked with individuals out say, well, they'll say, well, I think I was just gonna eight against, but you know, I didn't have time to deal with that. I needed to find a place to live for me or I needed to find a place for me, my children on my family to live. And so that here sometimes people don't buy because they're busy looking for the roof over their head. And that's that's the war. He just described. How it sounds like not only are the elements with the different groups of people that are looking for fair housing always changing the landscape of housing, always changing. And then just the situations of those same people. They're always changing there's there are a lot of moving parts in order to tackle this. And and you know, again, you know, my belief is that the best is to know the law and to do that. And so as a result, we're partnering with a number of visitations across the state of Tennessee to provide fair housing training and. Nothing with with the city of Memphis Shelby county in Memphis area legal services to name a few and in Nashville with a fair housing the Tennessee, fair housing council and a variety of groups through out kind of kind of the middle Tennessee region, including Murfreesboro Nashville, Laverne and Davidson and metro itself. So we'll be we'll be doing that. And then there's something going on in Knoxville as well. So we're we're.

"Like, man, I get it kinda go either way, but don't you with that all of it, and I sort of feel that same way except for the fact channel the games are already asking a lot of these officials to make the right call these in in rapid speeds. Can we really expect them to in the back of their mind also real type go, well, I would normally call this. But because it's end of the game. I'm not gonna call it. I think that's probably much to ask. And it's probably not the right way to officiated game. So, you know, if going alcohol there don't jump into the guy, you know, make sure you jump out of the way. So the only thing you can't do there is foul. Right. So I think he's just gotta be more careful. That's heartbreaker that was a really fun. Tennessee teen a really likable Tennessee team. A good deaf. Tennessee team to make the final four and good enough. A race in eighteen point. That's in the biggest game of the season and have a chance. It was too bad. They couldn't finish it off. But but really great and people will start saying Barnes can't, you know, as a choker, whatever maybe, but he's he's made Tennessee basketball, relevant nationally, you know, in short order, and that's not a not a small in Cali. I I want to piggyback off that. Because I mean, we we we've talked about this now for four years that perfect season going down in flames with with cow. And and when you don't get their the pain never goes away. And I wanna ask you to pick up on that. Because Rick Barnes Barnes's record in the tournament is not very impressive. Even though he has a final four, but he has a lot of lost opportunity with some of the best players that have ever played the game. This team was just such a great team. And I think that's why it is so hard breaking today. Yeah. And you you mentioned the one that you know, will probably haunt John cale and Kentucky fans forever. You know? They're two wins away from the the only for an invalid basketball history. And one of the most talented deepest teams anybody ever assembled. They couldn't get it done..

"It was definitely a foul. Dan, another aspect of it. He costing Edwards is really close to the outbound. But he would I mean, it was probably an inch for its. But no, I noticed Tournus quote was while I did see take his leg out in just call him on on his leg. But now he did. It was hip to hip was foul. And to Rick Barnes credit. He he acknowledged out not that it really matters today. The season is over and I ask you after building this team from scratch after getting to a height that this program who had not really encountered in in a long time. And then only very briefly, whereas the Tennessee basketball program today now that there will be a lot of departures and a lot of disappointment. Yep. I don't know. How many Portuguese there will be? I mean, you'll lose Admiral Scofield us lose Cala. Like, Dan six eleven post gaffe Scofield's kind of been down at the end of the season at a waffle. I stab last night came back strong in the second half the other two guys. That's the that's the real question with grant Williams to time. He'd see player the SEC player of the year, Jordan, bone five point or I just don't really think those guys are gonna go. I would be surprised if they do for one thing. I don't see grant Williams make it in the NBA immense. But I just I just don't think he has the skill set for Jordan bone to me has a much better chance. But join bone to me is to stick around another year and really work on a shot. He's he's quick. He's big enough. Off. He knows how to run it off since they disseminate the ball. He can do all thing. Be a with the way the NBA still point guards gotta be scores to and I really think he needs to find June shooting. He's improved every year. And so why not take one more year and and try to improve some more. And if those guys both come back put on with LeMond Turner and join down you're gonna have nNcholas of a really good team again. John Adams was a show may ask you about Rick Barnes because you know, you want some national coach of the year words, and certainly I think any reasonable person would laud him for the the exemplary job that he has done. But sometimes pass history does come back to haunt you. And his record and games like this as we both know is not very good. The preparation for that game last night left. A few mystified in terms of the lackluster play early the opposite of what we saw last Sunday you give us an assessment of Rick Barnes right now. And I don't mean any of this take away. But what are you thinking about the way he prepared this team in the NCAA tournament? Call. Thank the NCAA tournament is such a difficult bent to try and draw conclusions from I think each game is unto itself. And what happened the week before the week before that doesn't seem to matter? I always feel like with a NCAA game. I just really don't know what you might get. So I kind of think I don't really blame blind. So what for what happened last night? I thought who do and I didn't know this going you when I saw the bracket out to the C would win that reach. But I didn't realize how Purdue how good Purdue was Purdue just dismantled. If any national championship Villanova beat them by twenty six points. I've thought Tennessee when you look at the season, I just think Tennessee out a little bit rundown there at the end. If you go back to the SEC tournament that great comeback against Kentucky. I think that was the peak and then came from behind in the last three minutes when the game next day gets waylaid by Auburn any wealth of the NCAA tournament games leading up to the Purdue game. They they just weren't that sharp Bill big leads in both games. But then lost them lost..

Every principal and every practice built into the by faith examples in Hebrews eleven should have clicked with the readers of Hebrews, the author included those examples not to mock not to chastise contemporary first century, Jewish Christians. But rather to encourage them to follow in the footsteps the by faith footsteps of those Old Testament examples, though, we did not take the time to emphasize it yet, the continuing context of Hebrews eleven which would necessarily include the closing verses of that chapter as well as the opening verses of the following chapter Hebrews twelve that context shows us the intention of the author. Let's take a look at that. Now here God's word and all these having obtained a good testimony through faith did not receive the promise God having provided something better for us that. They should not be made perfect apart from us. Therefore, we also since we are surrounded by so great, a cloud of witnesses. Let us lay aside every weight and the sin which so easily ensnares us and let us run with endurance the race. That is set before us looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith who for the joy that was set before him endured. The cross is spicing the shame and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God for consider him who endured such hostility from sinners against himself. Lest you become weary and discouraged in your souls. You have not yet resisted to bloodshed striving against sin, and you have forgotten the exhortation which speaks to you as two sons, my son do not despise the chasing of the Lord nor be discouraged when you are rebuked by hand for whom the Lord loves each Chasen's. And scourges every son whom he receives that's Hebrews chapter eleven verse thirty nine continuing into the twelfth chapter through the first six versus as the writer concludes. His discussion of the Old Testament individuals who lived and who acted by faith, a turns to show how and why he cited them as examples these precious souls, according to his words obtained a good testimony to faith meaning that they gained approval that they were approved that they were commended for or through their faith or that they earned a good reputation because of their faith all different expressions found in other translations of that text their faith then counted for something in God's sight. God took note of it then and God through the Hebrews writer took note of it. Now at the time that he resolves written. Their past examples of by faith were intended to be current examples of by fate for Jewish Christians in the first century. It's interesting to note that this Burs Hebrews eleven thirty nine closes out the thought that we I saw in the opening verses of Hebrews eleven there. We read now faith is the substance of things hoped for the evidence of things not seen for by it, the elders obtained a good testimony. Let's Hebrews eleven one. And to the words by it. In verse two means by faith the faith. I introduced in verse one and has the chapter continues, which includes all of the.

"Our PO box one one eight Fayetteville Tennessee three seven three three four. We look forward to hearing from you. We continue our focus on Romans five seven and eight that passage rate are scarcely for a righteous man will one die yet perhaps for a good, man. Someone would even dare to die but God demonstrates his own love towards us. And that while we were still sinners Christ died for us. Romans chapter five or seven posits dying for someone else as something tend to something that might something that could happen. But in the end a sacrifice that appears to be more unlikely than likely Romans five eight however tells us what God was always more than willing to do why why has got always been more than willing to go the second mile. It's because God has always shown a willingness to love, and it's because God has always shown a willingness to serve for God. That means father, son and spirit. Love and servant hood. Always go hand in hand in this context is because of God's continue a willingness to love and to serve that tells us that God, always stands ready and willing to save we closed a recent study with these thoughts. It means that God's love always. Always a saving. Love always comes across in the same way. It's complete. It's perfect. It's a love that pursues a love that goes after a love that goes out of the way for the object of that love always in short. God's love for us has always been and will always be a love that serves and saving. Love will always be a serving love. We continue. Our study of that second verse but God demonstrates his own love towards us. And that while we were still sinners Christ died for us. We already noted that got evidences that God demonstrates and proves his love through Christ's sacrifice. But there's more to it than that. It's about God's own love. It was not just about any kind of love. It was about God's love. God who is love according to I John. Chapter four has always been so defined and so- characterized by his love that the word captures the largest share of who. And what God has always bam. It's also about the objects of God's love the objects of God's love in this context. First century, Romans, first century souls, but by extension, it would apply to every soul who has lived since. Then including us, it's also about God's love directed toward us toward all of humanity. Though. Our prior point noted that all humanity that he is also where the objects of God's love it's worth repeating it from this perspective, it was not just an overly broad or an overly general love. It was specific it was directed. And it was specifically directed toward us. It's also about when God. God directed his love towards us. This passage tells us that God's love was made known that it was demonstrated that it was directed. Dort all humanity when we were still without strength Romans five six and while we were still centers Romans chapter five verse eight God's love did not indeed God's love could not wait until some point in time. Either immediate or distant when our status as something other than sinners was the norm since Genesis three. There has been no other time when we were something other than without strength and still centers God's love was directed to us when that is while we were not thinking not feeling and not behaving like God. It was offered when we were still centers. It's also about how God directed. His love towards us. God's love was not just specific in that. It was his own love. It was not just that. It was directed to all of humanity. It was not just when it was directed to us. But it was also about how it was directed towards us. It was revealed and accomplished through Jesus the Christ the son of God specifically, it was a -ccomplish through Jesus atoning death at the cross how much farther could God go then to offer his only begotten son as an atonement for the sins of all humanity. God could not go any greater distance than descend Jesus to the cross in finding light. It's not just about how. But also about how far meaning the extent the reach of God's love directed toward all humanity. A reminder, the preceding and the contrast. Versus Romans five or six and seven rita's follows for when we were still without strength in due time. Christ died for the ungodly for scarcely for a righteous man will one die yet perhaps for a good, man. Someone would even dare to die Romans five six identifies the objects of God's love in two ways. First they we were without strength and second. They we were ungodly Romans five eight identifies those without strength and as ungodly with a third term. They we were sinners what does this tell us about how far God's love went to. Redeem lost souls room has five seven as we have already noted raises the possibility of someone dying for another who was righteous or another who was good. That possibility in this context comes across as unlikely Romans five eight, however raises the bar of selflessness. And servitude by an order of magnitude everything about.

"Tennessee matters. I'm Robert want something that matters. And it's mattering a lot more people as days go on is the cost of care for the elderly talking about long term care, and it's something that's been on the radar for a while. And yet the the concern remains, and we're going to talk about that in more detail with guest who is joining us on the phone this morning. He is with with Jen wars, and his name is Gordon Saunders. Gordon? Good morning to you. How are you doing? Good morning. Robert, I'm doing well. Thank you for having me. Absolutely. There is a report that came out this week. What was it about? Well, it was about our annual study of the cost of long term care services. And that includes care one would receive in their home or for care that they would receive outside of their home in this type of care is your everyday activities that we. Take for granted such as going to the bathroom getting dressed eating or just simply getting from place to place, and this is the fifteenth year that we've done this study talking about that as far as some of the things that you're learning. This is not a new issue. I I can remember going back to my high school debate years in the late eighties and talking about how we knew that the baby boomer generation was going to drive this expanded a population of seniors come around this time, whether it's twenty fifteen into twenty twenty here we are. This is not a new revelation as the demographics go yet. What are you learning? But we are learning that the cost of care is certainly on the rise. And we're seeing research says that somebody over the age of sixty five has a likelihood of a seventy percent chance that they will need some form of long term care service. And as you mentioned there, the baby boomer generation is certainly susceptible in the more research says that.

Going on is actually a. Refinery in, Tennessee Memphis, it's the, Memphis refinery, and it, supplies gasoline and diesel fuel and other refined petroleum products transportation. Fuels to the Tennessee market Tennessee also does get, product by pipeline from refineries on the US Gulf Coast and refund reasonable Musgrove coast actually supply product?
