Chris: [00:00:00] Ohio had an election yesterday and we’ll be speaking about it, however actually, oh, we’re getting notes from individuals about our Deshaun Watson. That story simply doesn’t go away. It’s at this time in Ohio, the information podcast dialogue from cleveland.com and the plain supplier. I’m Chris Quinn right here with Lisa Garvin. Courtney is staffy and Laura Johnston in your circles has the dialog this week been largely in regards to the Sean Watson.
Yeah, no. Yeah.
properly, it’ll be a part of the dialogue right here once more at this time, however from a unique angle, let’s start. What’s the larger information this Wednesday morning, after a uncommon August major in Ohio, the winners of the state home races or how low the turnout was Laura, very low voter turnout.
Laura: Yeah. Voter turnout was actually low and COGA county was about 10%.
I used to be really shocked to see it was that prime as a result of I ask individuals at this time, yesterday, are you voting? And so they’re like on. , like [00:01:00] individuals didn’t understand there was an election. And clearly that is all the results of redistricting and pushing again and pushing again with the Ohio redistricting fee to the purpose the place the federal courtroom needed to get entangled, set this August date.
Gerrymandered districts. So yeah, lots of people didn’t know there was an election. The most important race was most likely bride rose, Sweeney, at the least in, um, in COGA county, in opposition to Monique Smith. In these districts, they each form of misplaced their dwelling district within the redistricting. So the showdown of two incumbent west facet county Democrats and Sweeney.
Beat Smith, um, about 55% to 45%. And she or he clearly has a extremely recognizable identify in Kaga county. Her dad is longtime metropolis Councilman now in county council. Yeah, although. I’m not
Chris: positive that that’s a great identify. I imply, there are lots of people that have a look at Marty Sweeney is fairly unhealthy man. I imply, since he’s joined the county council, they’ve gone with slush funds and so they’ve gone.
Going in opposition to the entire [00:02:00] level of the, the constitution, which was to have a board of administrators and never phrase king makers and, and individuals who doll out the money. So I’m a bit of bit shocked this wasn’t nearer. Cuz Monique Smith did do a hell of a job the primary time round she flipped
Laura: the district. Yeah. She used the one person who went from, uh, Republican to Democrat.
So. You simply misplaced a dependable Democrat in Kaga county and, um, that’s not one thing they needed to do.
Chris: Yeah. I simply, I, I don’t assume it’s the final we’ve seen of her, however it was a powerful victory, Brad Rose Sweeney. And perhaps it’s as a result of she has distanced herself from her father that she’s, that she’s her personal particular person and individuals are not holding her father in opposition to her.
Uh, the, the ten%. How did that examine to 4 years? So
Laura: 4 years in the past, so I’ve statewide numbers. So turnout statewide was 142,989. That was about half of the ballots forged early in 2018. [00:03:00] And simply barely greater than half of the individuals who voted on Could third, which was our first a part of the first. However clearly there have been a complete lot extra races on the poll in that case.
I imply, all of the statewide races had been there. Uh, for Senate and, and governor
Chris: and let’s face it, there have been a bunch of folks that had been nonetheless having bother figuring even what district they had been in. I heard from some folks that mentioned, after they went to vote, they had been the one particular person voting of their,
Laura: of their precinct.
I do know, um, we had been speak, I used to be speaking to Kristen Davis who manages our photographers and he or she mentioned, , it’s gonna be actually arduous to get photographs. They’re like, , we referred to as the precincts. There’s been like a few individuals. And I used to be like, properly, get photographs of empty. Voting sales space as a result of that’s the story, proper?
Individuals are not paying consideration proper now.
Chris: Yeah. I believe they’ll be paying consideration in November and, , come labor day, the, the races are going to begin to get sizzling and we’ve some good races, at the least within the Senate. You’re listening to at this time in Ohio. May there be larger irony [00:04:00] within the statewide race.
This November, during which the state Republican occasion is attempting to dam a candidate. Why Lisa is the Republican occasion. So frightened about an unbiased candidate within the race for secretary of state, the man who’s a podcaster and conspiracy theorist.
Lisa: Nicely, really it’s a lady. Um, however Ohio, G O P government director, Justin BIS had a written criticism and he’s difficult the validity of 65 signatures of candidate TURP.
Certain. To Mara who’s a lady, uh, she submitted 5,010 signatures, LaRose licensed her candidacy as an unbiased. However she didn’t make the G O P major poll again in might. So she determined to run as an app as an unbiased LaRose licensed that, however enterprise criticism alleges that there are a number of discrepancies in her 5,010 signatures.
Improper first, final names on the petition, together with [00:05:00] somebody that simply had an preliminary just for their first identify any person had, Mr. Is their first identify. Uh, they didn’t print their names. There have been three kinds, alleged to not have been crammed out by the signees. And signatures didn’t match what’s on file.
And this went on to say that, , Mara is basically not an unbiased, it’s fairly clear that she’s not disaffiliated from the G O P, however Mara is a podcaster. She’s an election denier. She’s a Q Andon believer who says she will be able to journey via time. Um, she was additionally a witness within the lawyer, Sidney Powell go well with to overturn the 2020 presidential.
Chris: Yeah. And there clearly is concern that she’ll divide the Republican vote and probably give it to the Democrat, which is why they’re, they’re attempting to, to cease this. It’s fascinating that LaRose did certify her for the poll. So the occasion is now going in opposition to the incumbent secretary of state and attempting besides her off.
Lisa: Yeah. I, I don’t [00:06:00] know what, , as a result of earlier on I, , I felt like Larose’s rhetoric about elections form of ramped up and I assumed perhaps it’s a technique to preserve this election denier off the poll, however anybody inputted her on anyway. So it’ll be fascinating to see if she attracts. Any votes in any respect?
Chris: Nicely, throughout the nation, you’ve seen election deniers doing fairly properly and largely Republican primaries. It’s one of the horrifying issues going. And there are nationwide Democrats which have taken an actual threat in supporting the wackiest of deniers, figuring that’ll assist Democrats in November. But when that fails, we find yourself with the wackiest of deniers on the controls of go.
So fascinating to see what’ll occur right here. I don’t assume anyone expects she will be able to win, but when she will be able to peel away votes from LaRose, then perhaps LaRose doesn’t win it’s at this time in Ohio, the Uvalde faculty bloodbath on the finish of the final faculty 12 months is on plenty of minds. As we begin speaking about heading again to highschool of summer season [00:07:00] Waynes.
I do know Laura, you don’t wanna give it some thought, however it’s proper in entrance of you and it’s positively on governor Mike Dew wine’s thoughts. What did he announce yesterday to attempt to assist out?
Laura: He introduced that about 11, properly, 1200 colleges in 81 counties will obtain almost 47 million in grants every as much as $50,000 to assist with faculty security.
So these are bills related to bodily safety enhancements, safety cameras, public deal with methods, computerized door locks. And this was initially of the college security summit in Columbus. He additionally launched Mary Davis. That is his decide for the brand new coaching. Serve the Ohio faculty security heart that oversees the security and disaster division created by home invoice 99.
That’s the identical invoice that gave faculty districts, the choice to arm academics. So Davis is the assistant superintendent and curriculum director for the corrections coaching academy on the Ohio division of rehabilitation and correction. That could be a actually lengthy title that she’s gonna lead the curriculum and coaching for academics who’re going to be armed.
Chris: I, [00:08:00] it’d be fascinating to listen to if we are able to get a learn on this. Mike DeWine has academics in his household, in his bulletins. Was he strongly advocating the arming of academics? Is it, was it extra that’s the legislation now? So I’m gonna take steps to make it occur safely.
Laura: He was very clear that nobody goes to be compelled to hold a firearm, that it was a very native choice and he’s leaving it as much as the districts to resolve what’s finest for them, however that that is the help the state is providing.
Uh, the state’s gonna rent 16 cell area trainers who will work with the districts that allow. Lecturers to hold weapons and anybody district that permits them have to develop a faculty security plan. They should have a hotline in the event that they don’t have already got them. And, and DeWine saying, this isn’t nearly faculty shooters, clearly that’s on the highest of each everybody’s thoughts, however that this might help with any issues of safety.
You understand, similar to a great previous fireplace drill. I imply, colleges are nonetheless required to have plans for any form of catastrophe. So, um, however it is a [00:09:00] sizzling matter proper now. The New York instances had a extremely in depth story on Sunday. States which are permitting academics to be armed and centered on Ohio, particularly a kindergarten trainer named Mandy and rural Ohio.
Who’s didn’t appear to be your typical common gun proprietor who’s doing this as a result of she desires to guard her scholar.
Chris: The, the difficulty isn’t as actual, I assume, in Northeast Ohio, a lot of the districts that we’ve talked to have mentioned, they’re not allowing academics to hold weapons. Have we had any which have mentioned they are going to or will encourage it, perhaps Strongsville or someplace
Laura: Strongsville can be a great guess.
Proper? Uh, we’re nonetheless engaged on that story. I’ve not seen any district. Overtly say they’re going to do it, however we’re nonetheless reporting it. And I believe the difficulty with rural Ohio is they are saying it takes so lengthy for assist to get there. Proper? Like we, in case you’re speaking about my city, the, the police division is actually.
Lower than a mile from each faculty. And I [00:10:00] know we’ve points about, , have a look at Aldi and, and the way useful the police had been there. However the response time could be very fast in locations the place it’s not so fast, they fear that they received’t have the assistance that they want. I
Chris: surprise if, if districts in our space had been to permit this, whether or not you’ll see some dad and mom transfer their youngsters to personal faculty, as a result of they actually don’t need their youngsters in a classroom the place any person’s carrying a gun.
Laura: I, I believe that’s a really actual concern that folks should grapple with. I’m. I
Chris: imply, how, how do you assume your city would? I, I believe your city is one the place they mentioned they’re not, however how do you assume dad and mom in your city would reply? If impulsively the weapons had been permitted and academics had been carrying them?
Laura: assume the college board assembly can be overflowing with indignant dad and mom.
Chris: Yeah. Okay. It’s at this time in Ohio, how briskly does the town of Cleveland wish to convert the fleet of automobiles serving its utilities, departments to electrical and the way a lot Courtney will that value?
Courtney: Yeah. So this [00:11:00] plan we discovered about from the town of Cleveland intimately yesterday throughout a committee listening to includes the start steps of changing the utilities division fleet to all electrical.
Now there are, it seems like a whole bunch, perhaps even happening. Thousand automobiles employed by CPP, Cleveland, water and water air pollution management. So it seems like that is going to be a prolonged course of over time. However what we’ve proper now could be the start of that course of, 24, all electrical automobiles are at the moment on order.
We don’t know after they’re gonna be delivered there’s provide chain points like everyone knows about, however this primary batch form of begins the conversion of that fleet of a whole bunch of automobiles. And. To get issues in place to have the ability to accommodate this sooner or later and to accommodate these first 24 automobiles.
Once they do are available in to the town, the town must put down a bunch of infrastructure to cost the automobiles and the tab for that infrastructure. And for 31 charging stations that will [00:12:00] service this, this fleet 1.4 million. So not bounce change, however the metropolis’s laying the groundwork. In order that they have what they want in place for the longer term.
As they make this transfer over.
Chris: However it does make sense in a metropolis that has devoted itself to sustainability and a metropolis that runs an electrical utility to be main this fashion, lead by instance, by having electrical vehicles and displaying how they work, electrical vehicles, no matter it’s. Um, it is sensible. Proper?
Courtney: Yeah. And, and, and, , there wasn’t, there wasn’t actually pushback when the council committee was listening to it.
On on the transfer in the direction of electrical and, and looking out on the surroundings and the, and the inexperienced strikes right here. However I’ll say, , one Councilman Mike Pollick was actually nervous in regards to the price ticket for the se. You understand, we, we don’t have plenty of assets within the metropolis of Cleveland. There are huge upfront prices right here.
What’s the commerce off? And that was the priority, , on the similar time, from the opposite course, one other council member, [00:13:00] Jenny Spencer wa was all about this transfer, however she form of famous that till CPP will get out of its contract with that coal-fired energy plant, you possibly can plug in all you need, however are we actually going inexperienced?
The way in which we received to.
Chris: The, that is for all of the utilities, not simply the electrical utility,
Courtney: proper? Sure. That is for it. The, the charging stations will likely be put in at water division amenities and CPP.
Chris: I might think about the most important consumer of it as a result of it’s such a large system is the water division, which really has the cash to pay for it.
This doesn’t come out of the taxpayers pocket. It comes out of the speed payers, pocket, all of the water clients and electrical clients in to a lesser extent, I assume, sewer clients would pay that invoice, proper?
Courtney: Yeah. It, it, it looks like a few of it could possibly be financed by, by bonds, however once more, that will be via the water division, I consider, or the utilities division normally.
Chris: And in the end over time, this might save the speed payers a fortune as a result of the, [00:14:00] the price of fueling the automobiles can be cheaper. Nicely,
Courtney: that’s form of the commerce off they mentioned yesterday. Yeah. You understand, the utilities director mentioned the commerce offs listed here are one thing we’ll be keeping track of and we’ll be making prudent fiscal choices as we take the step in the direction of inexperienced as.
Chris: Okay, you might be listening to at this time in Ohio. Psychological well being has been one of many key tales of the pandemic with plenty of demand and little provide. John Oliver devoted his present Sunday to this drawback. Now the nonprofit eye in Ohio newsroom has calculated how unhealthy issues are in Ohio. Lisa it’s unhealthy.
Lisa: Yeah. It’s stunning how unhealthy and truly.
Predates the pandemic. So this story involves us from iion Ohio, uh, with, in collaboration with the Cleveland observer, uh, based on Ohio division of psychological well being and habit providers information between 2013 and 2019. The necessity for behavioral well being providers highway rose [00:15:00] 353%. Then in case you have a look at 2021, that demand.
Elevated 70% for grownup grownup and youth psychological well being providers went up 60% extra in habit remedy areas. Um, the facilities in Cleveland CEO, Eric Morris says demand is unquestionably up in COVID completely made it worse. And he mentioned that hiring and retention of psychological well being staff is their primary concern.
There are plenty of headwinds on this. Occupation, there’s low pay there’s employee burnout. Plenty of, uh, psychological well being staff received used to well being telehealth throughout the pandemic, and now they don’t wish to return to creating dwelling visits the place really probably the most assist happens in these in particular person dwelling visits, they’ve massive caseloads of 100 or extra individuals be.
Reason for quick staffing. In order that they’re attempting to determine how they’re gonna do that. The group counseling heart of ASTA Bula CEO. Paul Ballo says they’re attempting to fill 11 positions [00:16:00] proper now. That’s 10% of their workforce. So what they’ve performed is that they’ve begun an internship. Program. And there’s additionally a brand new social work program at Kent state, which can hopefully funnel graduates into, into the occupation.
And, uh, Morris with facilities in Cleveland says, , they’re attempting to be extra current in colleges to hype up a psychological well being profession or behavioral well being profession, however salaries are nonetheless a problem. In order that seems like that’s. Type of one of many huge sticking factors. Um, mayor DeWine, mayor Dwin, governor Mike DeWine did, uh, allocate 85 million for scholarships and internships within the psychological well being area.
So we’ll should see the way it helps, however yeah, I imply, it is a excessive stress. Uh, occupation with low pay, not an actual draw there.
Chris: Nicely, and better stress than ever now as a result of individuals are clamoring for the remedy and who hasn’t seen throughout the pandemic, the, the individuals round them having extra anxiousness. I imply, this has been one of the difficult instances of.
Of the [00:17:00] latest many years and when individuals attain out for assist and so they can’t get it, what’s the choice, what do they do flip to booze or one thing. And that is you, you must be capable of get a therapist if you want the remedy. And we did salute Mike the wine for attempting to assist with a few of the stimulus cash.
However it seems like primarily based on this reporting, it’ll take years to, to upend this, this provide drawback.
Lisa: Yeah. And once more, I believe it comes all the way down to cash. I imply, plenty of, , social staff, behavioral well being, individuals are not paid some huge cash, , in sure settings. So, I imply, they actually have to deal with that, that concern.
I imply, excessive stress excessive pay, it form of goes collectively
Chris: now. Nice for eye on Ohio to deal with. That is good, good content material. We’re completely satisfied to have the ability to flow into it to our readers. It’s at this time in. the story of the week continues to be Deshaun Watson’s six sport suspension. And we took the temperature of followers on each side of the difficulty.
Courtney, we’ve all been speaking about this all week, however [00:18:00] you haven’t had an opportunity to weigh in what are individuals telling
Courtney: us? Sure. So we had, uh, a reporter, John Tucker exit and speak to only a bunch of parents throughout Northeast Ohio to. what they make of the result right here. And as you form of anticipate, we’ve received people on each side of the difficulty as we’ve seen for the previous a number of months.
So, , that line within the sand appears to. Proceed now that we’ve a solution from the, from the arbiter. So, , John talked to, , I assumed one fascinating interview was a Brunswick auto store proprietor who had mentioned, , they had been able to, to see the Browns Excel now that now that we all know what the suspension’s gonna appear to be, how that’s gonna affect their sport.
And he had mentioned, , Sick of the me too stuff we don’t CA yeah. May you consider
Chris: that? Yeah. May you consider that remark? Yeah. In every single place. We’re performed with me too. Now we’ll get again to harassing girls and, and, and sexually assault. I imply, what, what kinda line is that? We’re all sick of the me too
Yeah, I don’t, I don’t, I don’t know, however I imply, I believe the Haslams had been form of betting on this after they introduced Dashaun in, proper. The scandal would blow via and, and individuals who had been gonna return to the sport had been gonna return to the sport in any case. Um, however, however that’s to not say there aren’t, , loads of naysayers on the market in larger Cleveland.
You understand, John talked to a scientific therapist in Cleveland Heights, diehard followers, since childhood saying. , she’s not gonna, , help the workforce anymore. How can I cheer for an accused intercourse offender? Who’s a, who’s our quarterback, , different, folks extra on the fan facet mentioned they had been one, one man who goes to plenty of highway video games, attire up, mentioned he was completely satisfied as a faculty lady.
Uh, John talked to a season ticket holder from shaker Heights and he has his Watts Jersey ordered and prepared and. And he mentioned, my pleasure went, went up much more. Once I discovered he’d be again on the sphere for sport seven, , on the similar time, like we mentioned, , the Cleveland rape disaster heart got here out with a fairly [00:20:00] robust assertion.
Uh, a licensed therapeutic massage therapist was saying that this suspension simply lets this habits perpetuate and proceed and, and he or she thinks, , it’ll make it extra harmful for therapeutic massage remedy professionals like herself.
Chris: I in some methods, I believe that is the worst case state of affairs for the Haslams. Should you judging by subtext, the place I get plenty of responses daily, it’s overwhelmingly in opposition to Deshaun Watson.
The issue is the decide mentioned he did it. He did all the pieces. Doug lane. Maurice did the story we talked about yesterday. The decision is evident. The one place the place the proof was thought-about a former decide got here out and mentioned he did. However then the punishment for those that are, which are watching, that is far too gentle.
And so there’s, there’s a nonetheless palpable anger. I assumed this story as soon as this was resolved, this week would begin to, to lose some air. However I, I don’t, I believe it’s worse. I believe [00:21:00] the gasoline on the fireplace, properly,
Lisa: Nicely, we don’t know the way the NFL is gonna rule. I imply, we we’re ready within the subsequent couple of days to see what the NFL says, so it’s actually not over but.
And yeah, that’s true.
Courtney: Yeah. I’ll simply say that. I imply, that is just like the, such as you mentioned, Chris, that is the primary time we’ve gotten a choice from an authority determine who reviewed some form of proof gathered. And the conclusion was that he knowingly sexually assaulted individuals. Like, I, I assume that’s not gonna make the scandal go away when you could have that form of a, a bomb present.
Chris: suppose. Yeah. That, yeah, her opinion was very clear. And that, that was what was so hanging is that he did it, he did all the pieces he was accused of, however I’m, I’m certain by precedent. I can’t punish him extra and that is the NFL’s fault as a result of they actually didn’t ponder this sort of factor. So I, and, and Lisa you’re proper.
They’ve what until tomorrow, proper. To resolve, however appropriate. But when they attraction. Then it’s mainly saying, yeah, that entire system we put in place to be unbiased. It doesn’t imply something. And we’re simply gonna take issues [00:22:00] in our personal arms, which has its personal draw back. Gamers will really feel like that the they’re not, they didn’t cut price in good religion.
Uh, I, I, a few of the feedback in that story although, particularly the me too remark was stunning. The opposite one Courtney was the man who mentioned, they’ll log it again on the bus and I’m the bus driver, proper? Wasn’t that one of many,
Courtney: yeah, individuals are prepared. Go and cheer somebody who a decide referred to as. Ew. I don’t know.
Yeah, I don’t get it.
Chris: I do know it’s very, very disturbing scenario. It’s at this time in Ohio, Ohio, how is an Ohio Supreme courtroom justice evaluating abortion to slavery? One thing Republicans elsewhere within the nation even have been doing Lars it’s. We strive to not. Put gentle on ridiculously false statements. However each from time to time any person says one thing so astounding, the operating for workplace, you work the voters have to know.
Laura: Yeah. Laura Hancock did a extremely good [00:23:00] explanatory story on this. That is justice Patrick Fisher. He’s this Republican looking for reelections for Supreme courtroom and he spoke at a Delaware metropolis Republican membership on July 14th. In contrast Roe versus Wade to a pair of Supreme courtroom choices that mainly upheld slavery and segregation.
So he’s, he’s utilizing a authorized argument from Supreme courtroom circumstances to make his level. And that is referred to as, uh, substantive due course of as the premise for the Dred Scott choice and Plessy versus Ferguson. And he mentioned his level wasn’t to check abortion to slavery, however to query the authorized underpinnings of these choices, after all you place abortion and slavery in the identical sentence.
Care what nuance you say, you’re attempting to attract. You’re placing two actually huge co , points, American points collectively. And it is a Republican development. So JD Vance clearly is a Republican operating for the us Senate. He instructed the Catholic present that abortion and slavery had been comparable. And whereas the individuals who clearly endure probably the most are these subjected to it.
I [00:24:00] assume this morally distorting impact on a complete society.
Chris: I, I simply can’t consider they’re doing this. They’re simply diminishing what slavery meant. Lifetimes of bondage for individuals and evaluating it to what has lengthy been thought-about a medical process. It’s a kind of you’ll’ve by no means thought this might occur in your lifetime, however it’s taking place.
They’re on the market making these speeches. And I assume for some individuals it resonate.
Laura: Yeah, this got here in response to a query that any person had at this Republican membership asking abortion rights will likely be decided by the Ohio Supreme courtroom subsequent 12 months. So like actually that was not the query this man requested, however that is what he received into about substantive due course of.
This authorized principle that permits courts. To guard rights that aren’t spelled out within the structure and Fisher mentioned it was controversial. In order that raises a wholly totally different query. Proper? So ought to a Supreme courtroom operating Supreme courtroom justice operating for reelection, be telling individuals. What he thinks about one thing that’s most likely [00:25:00] gonna come earlier than the Supreme courtroom.
And he mentioned he can’t individuals can’t assume how he’d rule on abortion circumstances primarily based on his remarks a couple of authorized principle, however come on. Yeah.
Chris: That’s simply not true. Um, mm-hmm it was a shock and also you’re proper. Laura Hancock did a pleasant job on the story. It’s on cleveland.com. It’s at this time in Ohio. We appear to just accept that the coronavirus pandemic has turn out to be the coronavirus endemic, which means individuals have discovered to reside with it and accepted it.
And as everyone knows, a number of folks that averted it for 2 and a half years have been dropping previously few months. That doesn’t imply although, that we don’t have loads to study. And president Joe Biden’s second spherical, a constructive check has a lesson in it. Lisa, what can we learn about these rebound infections?
Lisa: Yeah, apparently there was some connection, uh, between rebound COVID an infection, reminiscent of president Joe Biden skilled and the drug that he was on PAX furious, which is, uh, manufactured by Pfizer. It’s an antiviral remedy, however a examine by case [00:26:00] Western reserve college, faculty of drugs, which is ready peer overview discovered that COVID rebound.
Results will not be distinctive to Paxil vid in any respect. Uh, of their examine, they discovered that rebound occurred in 5% of sufferers, 30 days after remedy for PAX furious, however rebound occurred in 8% of sufferers who’re on the Merck drug mal new peer Avir, however they mentioned that sufferers. Had extra comorbidities like most cancers, coronary heart illness and immune problems.
Chris: So the, I assume this has turn out to be commonplace. Should you check constructive, you’re going and getting certainly one of these antiviral medication to cut back the severity of it. These medication are available now. That’s why we’re learning them.
Lisa: That’s appropriate? Sure. I’m sorry, attempting to clear my throat, however they’re saying that despite the fact that there are rebound points and a small proportion of sufferers on these two medication, hospitalization charges are lower than 1% in all COVID [00:27:00] rebound sufferers.
