No other word has come Friday as you. Today. Mom. It's the popular here. And it's a story out of off to a blazing start. Sean Spicer has been seen cruising through a New York City on his podium here already for Melissa Manchester me senator and a lot of lips or apparently she you know the motorized podium that they've been using apparently she's. Motor around a New York City on that thing so that'll be one of their Promos there. For those of you haven't seen neo video of her transforming into our Sean Spicer we put that up on the Hancock digital BT dot com yesterday. And so that's so that is so therefore if there are still awful lot of talk about Komi we'll talk about that Jeff Sessions are chimes in on no drug sentences. And the account administration rejects about 99% of North Carolina hurricane Matthew recovery request. So all that we'll talk to us Sandberg I had about till 4 o'clock we'll do our read the news today oh boy had to 430. And we can I do final 530 on Friday in fact the final five that he's been known to happen and on Friday for longer than it's been avenues anyplace else. So will kick off to big weekend until 5 o'clock and then we will wander out into the rain I am led to believe. When we. Romeo wander out here attests to talk and make way for a Mark Garrison and Charlotte it to six so thirty go. That the economy thing has been known. And pretty much the main subject all day long and then after the White House initially said that to trumpet fired Komi because of our recommendations for. From a rod bronze in an wells and Rome are Rosen C in and now they seem to begin Rosen scene off the hook a little bit. Trump said yesterday that it already decided to fire combing before he got those recommendations and not called combing a showboat so it got a little personal as of yesterday. So that's been the bigger story about today over the deal week. Trump has a treated about our Russia. Sent out a couple of tweets yesterday about Russia. 01 in which he charged Russia must be laughing at the United States quote tears itself apart over the issue of via Moscow interference in the election and possible involvement of the yet trump campaign. And calls and all they had democratic excuse for losing the election. And and so far we haven't seen much more. Then that. I trump reportedly asked call me for a loyalty pledge although there are some things that are coming out today the say that that did not happen. And Andrew McCabe has testified before the senate committee yesterday and said. He disputed a claim that the FBI had lacked in confidence for our economy and that. I kind of contradicts president do. And so I guess acting FBI director Andrew McCain is probably not going to be candidate for the job but wouldn't think that though it Jeff Sessions is going to. And then maybe you agree with this and maybe you don't. And I and I'll take your comments on that 704571110. Jeff Sessions can bring back tougher drug sentences. Which will probably fill the prisons. Now he is leaving some leeway. Tom I got into a fascinating conversation last out of Colorado month and a half ago with people that don't partake in their laws and they were appalled at PI. The other Jeff Sessions good to actually enact federal law on her things the way they are in Colorado right now on. He's as conservative as very conservative convened. Mom I'm sure one of his favorite movies must be reefer madness because it seems to me mentality comes through but he told federal prosecutors and to resume going after drug offenders with maximum penalties. And battle roll back what the Obama era did and I'm I'm actually not so much against that but I'm not so sure that. The war on drugs has had any level of success of all that would suggest that. Sessions basically suggested to lighter sentencing is that he is at the root of America's open edit. Epidemic. As well as rising violent crime. And the memo said prosecutors can allow exceptions to the order if they document their reasoning and they gain approval from their supervisors quote. There will be circumstances in which good judgment. Would lead a prosecutor to conclude that a strict application of the above are charged policy is not awarded. So. Criminal justice reform people are not happening. ACLU. Has already said that the move requires prosecutors to reverse progress. And repeat a failed experiment the war on drugs are I have liked to CO a little bit better. Define progress I guess would be my question on that. Arm although it to him because I'm thinking that maybe it's had some positive effects on sentencing but I'm not so sure that it's done anything on the war on drugs it's just basically changed the war on drugs. But to opiates from must some of the straight stuff that we had before the overturn guidelines of the a former attorney general Eric Holder. Does when he was in charge and Obama was around prosecutors were told to go. Easier on nonviolent. Defendants. Without a criminal history. Who are not members of gangs. Which seems kind of reasonable. The new rules would increase the number of inmates in federal prisons that means that's for more of your tax money won't go. And I'm not so sure that the war on drugs has had any kind of results at all that would. Lead you to believe that may real policy in that regard this is worth anybody's time but they let some of the stuff that's gone on right now our backyard just a few. I'd really be did you have got. North Carolina. Was asking for a ton of money dealt with the error came Matthew relief and recovery. And they got word this last two weeks fit to. They can get nearly what they've asked for. In fact they got they were granted just 1%. Of the federal funding that they requested to help blow it recover from the damage left by hurricane Matthew. That that that deal last October. The the report is that 929. Million dollars had been requested. For. For cost associated with home repairs and preventative home elevations and agriculture and public facilities and small businesses and health service cost Jiaka stuff. And trip the drug administration only gave him six point one million which means the Roy Cooper invited trump on the administration to come on down NC it for themselves and Cendant. He try to work with the north Carolina's congressional celebration do I try to get more funds. That's that's pretty devastating for those people out of that took particular area the parts that I don't know about this. Areas that they live in and whether or not that's so prone to that kind of damage and whether or not you should continuously pay for that over and over and over again but I don't think any of that equation basically came into the decision of the administration looks to me like area. Not a continuation of the cutbacks we've seen them on. There's also a rumor this last week that Sean Spicer might be replaced and in fact he has been replaced this week by Sarah Huckabee Sanders while Lee was. Apparently pulling off US navy reserve role with the Pentagon over the last week. Which is uninteresting because the James told me firing breaks and all the sudden now you've got to substitute. Press Secretary. On an and then if you watched Sarah Huckabee Sanders I don't know maybe it was just a new phase sore. Maybe it was I got a call but she seemed into a pretty good job not there have been repeated reports. And actually these go back to the started trumps administration almost four months ago. That Sean Spicer was gonna be replaced. And then may you know the pop up and and it died down again and so the rumors are got Klein again this last few days because he actually had been replaced. And then hit first you had him on trying to dodge reporters among bush is at the White House grounds the night of the story for the James Toney firing broken if you don't think that that will be featured on a Saturday night live with Melissa McCarthy this week you're probably registries. In the bushes. Com and Dan now. Spicer has been absent all week long and Sarah Huckabee Sanders has been no filling in buzz feed knows what you don't don't necessarily find too accurate. As says that when they asked the end administration official yesterday of Spicer was going to be replaced amid reports that trump was asking aides. About doing it. It was told oh my god for the a billionth time no. Is that an official response from the White House almighty god. Well we did go through that part of the primaries forward trying to decide go who was more religious Donald Trump for Hillary Clinton. One of the really mourn deep conversations that we had during primary season. The bullet. So but as seed also cited other sources as saying trump isn't happy with Spicer and aides have been no calling prospective candidates who might be interest into Spicer is removed. And Ed do you watch that same body ever watched that on a daily basis that comes on. I don't know we generally what is it about 2 o'clock hurt 130 year or something like down. So long I'm downtown downstairs and what we call the bullpen. And. And that thing comes on we you generally got that on TV does sometimes it's on us CNN when I commend. Or MSNBC and I general a switch in order fox. Because. I don't know the information I get there will be more PCT you have. And saw mom so that's a good that they all aired I guess every day and it's it's not just its administration. This whole. Press Secretary meets the press on a daily basis I guess that's so you can sail like heated today hey we're out here every day answering your questions. But other than that I can't think of any real reason why ideas because it is just an exercise. In. The press asking questions and this guy being able to think on his seat fast enough to not answer them in some sort of a well thought out dignified way which doesn't always necessarily happen. Sometimes they just give you the most. Screwy answers to any idea idea. I just have to wonder if it's not just a waste of everybody's time. Now it's a shame because I think it was yesterday or the day before. That does trump chimed in any civil maybe we should just issue a daily briefing. Every day and not go through this. Which would subject them not to having to stand there and and ask. An answer the same question over and over and over again. But. Anyway by the seaside and other sources as saying trumps not happy with Spicer and aides have been called into. And I attempted you don't screens and people in and one quote Agile candidate would be Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Which. It trumps reportedly plead not only with her performance. But it would also be de. Female front person I don't I don't imagine that could hurt him considering go hit his ties either so it. We have a lot of conversation this week. About does schools. And and there's this conversation will go lawn as to how we. How well we decided and take our kids. Or in math this case are now are your kids. And figure out the boundaries an assignment. Of if we had a meeting the slow this last week and hundreds showed up and and primarily. People argue they. They look at the plan and then they look at what it means for their school on them they decide accordingly and it's interesting. In this building. We have. Got a number of people in this building actually that are very active in the school. Loan situation Sheridan. From sports is very active she and sister both are very active us in one TV. But we have other people and urges parents here and we have below one lady who's worked here for awhile and she is essential parent. And they are happy to be said she'll parents. And they're optimistic about worse said shield is going and may. And so she's and she spoke the other night at that meeting. And then we have people here who are deal worth parents. And they're scared to death about association with Sergio and hay and just didn't sting gone and you would expect people to do it any other way it's. It's a heads of what parents are supposed to do this close to make sure that they are kids are in the best possible. Situation for a long range growth potential and good health and foundational disciplining all that kind of stuff. But you'll you'll never come up to me is many. Checks and balances I heard two things this week that I thought were interesting and one was. When you have all these feeder schools you sometimes take away from neighbors being able to help neighbors. Energy got rail load. Income school a school that is primarily low income people. And and and the kids are being sent here there and everywhere. Then a neighbor who works the morning shift can ask a neighbor who actually afternoon shift to help her pick up her kids an intern to return the favor. And cherry channels throughout. And basically just gonna have some sort of community. I don't wanna some like Hillary Clinton and say it takes a village but. About it takes a community. You know I talked to Scott swimmer later on this afternoon right where we approached 5 o'clock he's a guy who got a strong mind a strong every year they're doing a six hour they're doing it concentrated good from strong mr. That misty. Horse farms. So well I talked to Scott about that he's been doing this for some time I think this started back in 2004. His son Mason and got no bone cancer. Mason is thriving now. But I'm Scott put together this drum strong thing and I remember the first time never came to us and approaches on an and I still don't know that I totally get the concept because. I haven't gone out to it because you're beating drums and stuff like better probably does not. They've got to me with my you know my and I have a term what they are hearing age have a mission could try that this weekend and see how that that works but in the past has been no. But anyway it's just the need to steal and it's earthy and it's. And they got these things now they've got these drums strong chapters all over the world. And they in one a one year I think they all did it collectively at the same time but it's just got to be soiled dark skies warmer about its origination and what it actually is and no one has taken place which is tomorrow. So low that comes up all right before we kick off the big weekend at 5 o'clock 4 o'clock wolf talked air expand Burgess few moments away. And a find out what's going on in neo world with him he writes about several things this week and no one is there Charlotte tackling an eight year run on college football games. So North Carolina State in a South Carolina. We'll play a September 2 game of Bank of America Stadium but there's a whole bunch you know more college games that are now set to appear. Loved so well so we'll talk a little bit about that and and other things that he writes about in the current addition of the observer which are came out today. The new city manager kind of wrenching story there are. And this thing they wanna build between borrowed jingles and opens now that the amateur sports. Dreams may not be happening after the principal they remember the private investor good sports a bad deal kind of fell apart and so you had some money left over from the amateur. Sports proposal. And does so now they're proposing to use that money. To build a. Building. It is a link but it's. Other allows them to do anything but it would just essentially connect. Opens and OJ angles which were both born built on the same here I think it was 1953. So Eric writes about. About that in and no more so Bullock talked to Eric. Coming up after the 0:4 o'clock news. We're tyra schools this week carriers have finished third to darken about that to some extent. I've been enough kind of a reflective mood thumb for about the last five weeks because of this Ed WBT. Honor that is coming my way on June the 28 and and it's caused me to think about my career and it's caused me to think about two. Of people who help me along the way. Stepping stones. I was talking to some people about the David Brothers yesterday one of the things that's happened to me in this. Money in this stretch should WBT which is. About 28 years now. Was Evan doll friends or call me one day in and say. They got to spend at a Concord or not quite sure what to call Mary there Iraq further blue grass are there pandora born in other folk rather. And the kind of a fallen into this new. Full category today in full today doesn't necessarily mean Peter Paul and Marion. So lobbed the new Christy minstrel. So I I just. I mean I've got a lot of mileage out of and being in the right place at the right time for some reason other us and yeah bring a man. And then that started not only your association with the Davids but it also. You know a good friendship with the adult friend sore and I'm good friendship with the Abe instead Jim David news so large Susie enough. I as is the best yes I ever. I ever said do so I mean that you meet ya I start to think it about. A smile on stepping stones. People that Paul Moyer you know Paul Moyer is. Football's a guy who owned a local radio station in the small town that I grew up that opened a door to me you know on a work study program. Paul was a Pueblo Colorado redneck. Cowboy cowboy hat. Wrote across the country with the Fall River Wrangler singer and songs like those sons of the pioneers did old stock car racer hated hippies. I was a hippie wannabe. They send me up to his radio station in my senior year high school and probably Hillary's and I got the gig was because. I hadn't had time to grow my hair back out of which is coming out a military school also is still had the short hair. So hated no I was a hippie wanna be well he and I turned out to be great friends but it was film. On being open to mean. Be on his radio station. Which actually aided him well too because so there really was no format and gave him a chance to Garcia's girlfriend while I looked. While the way and I'm sure 120 dollar 25 an hour some. Our commitment stepping stones but the reason I got the job but to go and meet Paul was because a bug guidance counselor. In in this goal. Pat slam. Another name doesn't mean anything to you. I never would have thought that our guidance counselor would've helped me in my career. Because I was always in trouble in school not because I was a bad kid but because I was the class clown and I just never really conform to the waves schools teach. Arm and end the only the only reason that pat Flynn is near as I can tell ever paid any attention to me at all was because he knew during parent teacher conferences. He get to talk to my mom and my mom was a fashion model. So I had a hot mom. So I think that's why pat Flynn even knew I was I called pat. Mr. Flynn. After our thirty year class reunion or something like that since I've been here. And told him what had happened to me in my life and and where I had been and where I was now one and then thanked him for the percent in middle. A radio station. And and he remembered who I was but that's why I say he remembered who I was he's an all I remember you. You have a good look at mom. Yeah well you know they're there works I saw a thing I and that newspaper and not April. And it was an article that was written by a K mix batten who teaches. High school English in New York South Carolina. And her thing was schools can't afford to cut guidance counselors now I gotta tell you have to or not for pat Flynn on what is said guide Skelton what do wasted time. I understand or were they might not be a waste of time if you had a school tragedy or something along those lines but I mean. But I I'm in total. I can course when her on that. Both wake county and Charlotte Mecklenburg schools and ask for more gal guidance counselors and social workers for next year is kind of the emphasis of her. Of her op Ed piece and she says our guidance counselors are instrumental in setting up IEP meetings with special needs students are let. And meeting were uprising freshman and they counseled troubled students see that was only association I ever had with a guidance counselor. And they lead grief therapy sessions and they functions this. As liaison between students and teachers and talked to students about anger management and stress and they get to know their us situations at home and and that was especially true in the small town because you know what the situation was at home anyway because a small town always knows what everybody else is businesses. So I heard the whole point of her article was give schools the guidance counselors. Teachers will be better teachers and students will be better learners. So I'm just kind of curious let me open the phones for a couple of seconds anybody else have a guidance counselor played a key role be a steppingstone in their life. Because I don't know that I've met too many people would have had a guy in the sky. Also are literally had to. But obviously if pet planet never sent me to Paul Moyer. And and Paul Moyer had not somehow or another decided I was sick Paul knew my folks another advantage of a small town. So it didn't really matter what I was he knew my dad. And so he knew my dad's character and foundation and soul. And essence of I turned out to be a jerk he knew that my dad would handle the disciplinary part of. So I probably got the job for their resume as well guidance counselor got one also played a key role in your life 704. 5711. Did over the traffic serial brought you by hunters shall Fordyce 77 X 43 crew emerge ever have a guidance counselor that does pay you any time. Hi yes I think you know yes you're absolutely early years in high school and yes absolutely great man did do any any instrumental role in pointing you towards radio or getting you into radio or was I just always something that you read your eyes on as something I just wanted to do his serve but you got discounts or stepped in a few times and I don't know exactly. Ago you know what to do or how to how to handle things sooner or later thank goodness do they were round draft pick I just counselors and coaches. Coaches yes some of Carly didn't have as good a look with coaches as hooded guys it's it's a really. Clear though that the most long lasting thing that they have coach ever did Torre was just remind me typical couple. Thank you mr. Wallin that it got hooked us gives me a but the late mister Wallace the talk. Guidance counselors who may carry this on. I am bill will tell you go down I'm great thank you very much so guidance counselor what go what happened. So it's not a good story it's about story actually and I would he would he Charlotte and into suicide attack no guidance whatsoever. They couldn't even accepts. My schedule because it was like. I against their security policy or something like that. Is actually ridiculous but at the guidance counselor today it couldn't have access to your schedule. Now here on the loose out like I had a club let that we'll get in this kind conflict with the public yeah. No we I don't know I can't find out public why. So. Yeah. Pretty ridiculous but what I what I would like to say the. I think that there should be career counselors not only in high school but I also empowers state helped develop. People. Career track them and encourage them and give them different path that how to get there each year current. You know being in this world with too many tax laws and everything like that a lot. And perhaps coming through not only college high school so you know they could save people a lot of time but I'm having my business guidance. I think part of that gig would also be that you would establish at some point you would start to establish contacts. Bomb so that may be even and a day in cities like Charlotte inserted a small towns you would have businesses that would do would be willing to and I'd take students on. I don't know what the school rules and laws are now about off campus this size whether it'd probably be ridiculous so her. You know politics I'm sure is guided in their area very hope I think our energize our project I think one of the reasons that they're the thing it Estes Park. Was to get me out of the building. I think the lord of prisons and it was acceptable and we were all encumbered by politics. You had you know on a local superintendent and a local school board but you have a high school middle school and elementary school knows that. So. Literally when I came back from military school I had so caught up on classes. Then all I needed to graduate from Estes park high school was a physical ledge. And glass. And a science class. And those came in late afternoon they had nothing for me to do in the mornings. Pickens I mean I can assign to classes but. So the guy did they decided to seminal radio station that's how I started my is the second half my senior year was I would show up at the radio station. It's 7 o'clock in the morning and I'd leave there at noon any luncheon and go to the school. Are by 1 o'clock into a science class and then the last day was well the last class I had was. Because I was out for football like that so those ideas that's what's on what's at Georgia led to great senior year. So guidance counselors Charlie are on the Levy T hi. Larry Dillon I'm good. Grow so doctor dar re about to guidance counselor. Well actually you probably didn't junior year and I told good lord be a veterinarian and he says it with your Grey's there's no way you're gonna get into Cornell. So I don't know well. I really wanna be event what do I do. Trees could not tell Cornell that you just wanna give it to some obscure. Major that's not a lot of people are going to be competing we view convert from Long Island and then. And I did that then and I got in and then I worked my butt off for school and got into veterinary school in lieu. There I am I'm retired veterinarian. I was gonna say reviews CNET and necessarily change your major there's a lot of times if you wanna get into a certain university find the major that's not popular get a adamant change your major what you want. Right they don't I didn't actually do that and in school because I've would have been put into a different poll Barack being considered prevent very score. So I had this semester courses in an election year. And then now when I liked that very school are you actually looked. Better than some of the pre veterinary student and only had two years of school. Now very cool hey Charlie touched on appreciated. Can thank you I like coffee goes or expand burned a new addition of Charles business journal is out today we'll talk here expand bird go next rule. Read the news today oh boy till 430. We will talk to Scott swimmer of drums strong add to 10 minutes before 5 o'clock. And at 5 o'clock well look kick off the big weekend with big weekend movement Tom Petty so let's stick around we'll get stored 6 o'clock cannot keep Breyer on the weather. Which is got about a 40% chance of arraigned this afternoon but as we get deeper into the evening it rises to an 80% chance. Head WB BMY. No additional well business journal is now. Your staff writer Scheyer Stanford joins us on Friday and again I've missed Stanford how are you. I'm very very very narrow from front and looking at DOT Vietnam Maloney and the and the president. Or. Entertaining guests at the at the White House. I thought for a moment that she had been named conversation being taped do we go ahead and I had no idea that market. Well I looked up and thought oh my gosh Maloney is the new FBI chief. Back back back up a and yeah. Well. Given away Cantwell I doubt if you don't love rendered it is I would say that would be bad because as early as administration you know the next who's gonna get fired Jews so that that would just be uncomfortable wouldn't. Yes that would be I think you need to go ahead and maybe just tender text letter noted that this probably not a right time to accept the job. You actually irons I assume this may be is so a story this was submitted to a fairly late in the process you're talking again about today Eastland so were remaking the mall site plans I don't know that I. A prep true that before you came on today but don't bring me up to date on what's going on with these on mall and and who is responding to what might be possible. Oh I didn't have not getting so yes you and I have talked about this so many times is trying to find. This city trying to find a way to you. Generate development out there it's an eighty acre site and 69% acres are. They can and so they have to carry out what to do and one. They come up with this time is they're bringing in it contains consultant to try and shape. Or what the infrastructure looks like award kind. It incentives might be out there too big and gifted developers Q actually take a second look at this and so. Next week they'll start doing that by bringing in some developers and just having. Fairly informal conversations have been out or are hurt. What is lacking about the site for a lack of better term dual forty neat what would make you Beatrice sitting this site. And at what they're hoping that once they have that information then they can go out. Put together they have more comprehensive. Plan if you will to. Find investors I mean did I guess it's really that simple although US Brazil it's not that it is Italy and air for years and years so that that's what they're doing their. If China gets sent some people who were actually in private investment to come out there. And look around and see what is possible and then give the public. Sector are some ideas of what they need to get city government some ideas of what they can do to make this. Viable. Seems ludicrous that you would have 69. Acres of undeveloped land in one of the fastest growing cities in the country. Near the Center City yeah within the beltway. And not know and not be able to find some to do with it. Well and you know because you've been here through this I mean one of the big problems. Obviously is that despite those attributes you also have an area that is. Disproportionately. Struggling in terms of employment in terms of median income is an area that has been dogged by concerns. Over public safety. All those things. However true or untrue they are at this time have to be dealt with it. Before you get into the attribute such. You know the diversity of the population. You know you're close huge sum of the most interest thing restaurants in town yet there are attributes in the fact that your close to up counts. But you have to deal with some of those other things first. The world's largest cantina 1511. Up up up up up up at attention will have you conservative margaritas he has plenty of free parking that the but the fifty acres of. Contemporary Mexican feared. Yeah they got out they've got a place out in a Colorado it's been there forever and I cannot say and think of those like this David much they are or Qassam Bonita. And no they actually have cliff divers and all sorts of stuff the merits of Mexican food restaurants got 92 layers and no then you can no longer around through. Not tunnels and stuff like that but they do they have cliff divers out there are some I don't wow maybe that's something mission considered. Because you're done there is firstly we had the what the that this ski slope the other or ski slope was recommended that we had the the maybe studio project. And that lettuce then into may be taking a little different perspective. This time around but you know in all seriousness this is such an important project because for that side detail on it could be. The key piece to kind of jump starting. The economy quality of life and all those things but you've got to get it right. Right now speaking of development you also write about the link. And now we're not referring to a map Ramona and Bobby and Sherry and people over there one or seven point nine were talking about. This and it's not just a hallway between beau Jay goals and ovens auditorium and I'm not so sure is this new. This has been pitched originally end December. But they were uncertain exactly how this was going to proceed through city government and this week we got an idea. That it would happen as soon as next month that the council would. Look at this proposal and full vote on it and then perhaps it gets started in earnest with construction to get this thing moving in your right it is. Just what it says it is that we did they link that will connect those two buildings obviously owned by the city. I want it to 2500 seat. Auditorium the other one is an 8600 seat calcium in their broad sixty plus years old and they're lacking in. Hospitality areas there are lacking in restrooms are lacking any kitchen to basic and by incorporating some of those things into this structure. You would ostensibly. Add life to both of those buildings. And the link in this case is a 35000. Square foot building. Between the two would be yes would link the two together but it also has 7600 square feet of space for hospitality. For events before and after ovens are not Rambo jangled so. You know the Charlotte check her fans can go out and hang out with the Blumenthal performing arts people in ovens that would be a great man extraordinary. A lot and I think so it means people are just like to please an odd that they really are mania really we think about the same crowd. It's. That one of the things debt. You you heard from this city and from the visitors authority which front those buildings this week is. That while you will generate additional revenue due big push here is to keep you were two key tenets happy and you just mentioned them one at the Charlotte checkers here of course server. Edberg jangled coliseum and then the Blumenthal performing arts center which has not many have its touring shares. Play right there Ed up and so you want to make sure that you don't lose what you have their course there is the investment in the properties themselves. And trying to keep them chugging along at sixty years of age. This what day you also say this would include 121000 square feet of office and storage paid thirteen thousand little over thirteen thousand square feet for a concessions. And and other area uses as well as 2200 square feet for public restrooms so. Aid today it is a Lincoln it is a hallway our our our area. Between the two bill isn't as pretty instinct the money already available because the amateur athletic thing has kind of fallen to the wayside. Yeah I guess it's sometimes failure can help and in this case that's ward they're trying to do. You may remember we discussed many times this idea of an amateur sports complex there would be part of broad jangled and ovens that land over there. Any idea of course mr. boring in use tournaments basketball volleyball cheerleading all those things. At one point this city had a private investor that was going to go in without them. On that a project like that if fell apart. And since then the city has been trying to figure out what to do so they had to 45 million dollars. A city money that had been approved for that they've spent at about six and a half 1000007 million that lead to make in half million dollars. And they think that they can use that money. Not to build this blanket that will pay for the full structure and then the second part John is so what happens and amateur sports. What we are told is that. The amateur sports complex wherever and whenever it happens will not be at that site and would likely. And it's public portion funded through. And hospitality tax is Richard you know hotel room in the restaurant meal taxes. Worded the eighteen point five million come that we're back instead it was a use of the amateur vote was at a bond thing or was that. It came from knows the community investment plan which is your your basic long term capital investment now. One of the points they came up yesterday in a committee meeting to discuss this is of course I general property taxes are are. You know a big part of that money for all the projects that are in. Oh the capital programs so that is different in that you're not using that dedicated industry tax that was mentioned by. Two of the council members but it sounded like they were. Or reasonably comfortable enough to. Back this city in its current form. There's there's and I haven't heard it is much recently but there has been all amid around here for a long long time about. The voting and money and then having it used for different programs and what you were told originally. Yeah okay now we can say that always rated ever else it did yesterday as well it wasn't contentious but it was certainly. You know not the it was certainly. Pointed out and the other thing that came out John is well. This idea. OK wait a minute didn't you just tell us you had forty million dollar played around few fund soccer. But foresee council decided not to vote on that end. They had of the visitors authority pointed out that. That money for the soccer stadium would have come out a different. Pool of taxes and I think a couple of things that did. Computers and drive some voters crazy which is the idea that you have all these dedicated. Pots of money that can only be used for certain things and so then you get into the parking of the language such as we are doing right now. Yes mr. landlord I'd like to pay the rent but that's my beer money. A father and I didn't and really there's no way I can touch that extent to get inebriated so you're just gonna have. The pin that. That is all too wrapped in so many ways that I will never say that guy so yeah there that. There you go talked a college football sports and and no bowl games and and colleges and stuff next for their expert bird. Well I got rid of the big boogie man HB till I'm all the kids now start to welcome home and even a couple of new kids are apparently don't come on in there's an article in the Charlotte business journal out today Charlotte tackling eight year run of college kick off games enough. Prior expand Berger wrote that he's so on with the senior staff writer. So we know that we had North Carolina State and us South Carolina this September. But if they sign these other two games we got like an eight year run of college games in the bill bulls looking good in and that that get rid of age Biggio seems who have helped. Yeah I remember the ACC championship which Arabs said it would come back has started in December they added a year TV contract because of that one year hiatus to Orlando if so that's now. Where this story 20/20 and this story you're referring to. Today is involving the Charlotte sports foundation they hated their close on 20/20 Qiyue. And 20/20 four for Labor Day weekend college football games and you probably remember that a lot of this has. Emanated from the investment by taxpayers into renovations at Bank of America Stadium that in turn led to some land free. 88. For tourism events and and cultural balls obviously one of the major candidates they've turned to be trying generate some of that money so yeah that's good news for hotels restaurants and anyone else in the hospitality industry. Well most of the games kind of interesting I mean you all you'll have another North Carolina South Carolina game mode come through like they did 12015. And Tom they were talking about how that didn't really meet expectations but the they've played that game on a Thursday night instead of a Saturday and they're really think in that Richard if you got a Saturday game you gotta ruled he got a lot better shots altered its. Yeah and so one of the Al wild card factor are being wild card factor here is yes the end because they tend to have almost all of the TV inventory for these kickoff games and so what is the FB wanna do that's why got moved to first day at 4015. They want to do in North Carolina South Carolina on that night and so I think the hope is certain the secret so probably. Is that day ESPN does not accept looked at Charlotte. TV they Guinea pig for India Thursday night opening week games assuming they can keep it on Saturday I think that they will see a spike in ticket sales. Real quick though got about a half a minute ago but does the belt bowl is contractor drew 2019. I I guy I don't know how strong a a candidate bill would be to re sign up but what would be the prospects for another sponsor already -- even gotten that far. They're going to start talking as seriously this tall with a belt and that you conferences sandy at the end obviously the pantry is wealthy owners of the stadium. I think it's a great question John that's something to keep a close silent because obviously with new ownership of Belk. Whether they wanna continue that's. Something will be watching. It happened they may not end at this is it your fault them but they may not have these local commitment anymore because they're not necessarily the adult family anymore so low aspect not at all as there is a better effect so. And real quick younger than they got to go to tech catcher though it I think they probably could find a replacement sponsor if they had team because this ball is done reasonably well firm mid level bowl. Now that we lose the internally has IA thanks a lot talk do you like guy you're off next week I'm off the week after that for a Memorial Day is all talk to you June.

Raising. Or physical athletic you know. I don't fully think people. Will understand drums strong until they go to drums strong. Yeah you're right it's unique it's unique because it's a totally participatory event as though it you know you're talking Libya athletic event they're great but they don't look silly. Allow people that are compromise physically so participate come. We drums actually the first period that we kind of draw until we drop that was in 2007 and lo dropped 25 nonstop hours.

Or as unique as Cece Jews in Memphis a big kids go there. And parents never see a bill and that's just the way it's always been and I assume the way it's always going to be.
