Jail way. -- enemy thank you so much ever won again. Are you happy it's up Hamburg but I turned point of between thirty Thanksgiving Day yeah you're right. Moment thanks Jim and coming up. We editor at Thanksgiving show -- We got to do a show about food man we've got to do them we -- Fitzmorris. You know what -- -- -- aren't good for that week and is that thing I would assume my wife found out that she she took this allergy tests as you found -- whenever -- Jesus Turkey. It's not major but is still and don't come home and and now we're gonna have and I have got to have Turkey and I have Turkey and I got to have gravy and got to make Turkey agree on the -- the next day got to do it. But I think we're gonna make a big Boston bought two. No no hope for genome none of that sorry I ate real food and no it should not I don't know. But what we'll -- -- we're gonna do about that yet finally things given has come and up and that we can open up a new open up a Christmas Carol wonderful show pitcher Rick really. And the holiday -- -- All brought the content mean nine -- does -- our room. Now actually actually Maureen my wife is found matches like allergic to several pay income is gluten is -- now so she found its. This. Gluten free. Bread mix flowers stuff this company Pamela. But they make a pancake mix and their pancake mix makes a great room and it makes a quick route to. And it makes like normally you'd make like if you make a huge when you're used to cop so a flower whatever this stuff man. That is it you you can cut back the amount of flour used by it there by a third at least and still make -- -- for some all right. I you have Thanksgiving coming up gonna pick up like the pig that I am and will be -- this Gorham. What we haven't talked about today though is the votes are in and the tolls on the CCC camp passed. And operating a -- WW on -- come latest count shows. CCC will stay the total state regulatory years you glad are you said 74% of you say a 26% of your glad we've been -- calls on both size and I'll hold most of the people liked the -- the the polls reflecting most of the people or against the tolls. I think it's a rip off. Buddy don't think they're gonna spend the money where they said they're gonna spend it. They especially -- the people who stood up and says well this time you know give us another chance because this time we're gonna have transparency. And do you trust them -- and off sixteen people more. Then trust them and didn't trust them. But here's the text message and it's it's a perfect thing I've forgotten this term don't it reminds me of don't tax you don't tax me tax the man behind a tree. A caller earlier had said. That. 80%. Of the 80% of the holes are paid by by only 20% of the people who were allowed to vote. And so they they think that's you know not fare so there there are the answers to repay it does not affect me that much again. I will cross that brits but I'm just wandered through two questions that were raised here WEP is going to be finishes gonna have a lot more lanes. So are you gonna be forgoing the CCC. And that taken you weepy and do you think since the wording and about doesn't limited to a dollar do you think they'll raise. I think the possibility exists that the rays that but I think I think that out roar that will come from that 80% that pays the majority of the tolls I think you will see a lot people. You know flocking over to the -- More than what it is right now and again the police officers the police department and exist anymore they're being absorbed by the state police department public safety. Nowhere does what does that say that their government yet a piece that -- because win or lose. The tolls they're ago the police department was gone. You know. So now estimates and that message on of them the thing is chump change compared to the blues lose the -- to pay off. The -- -- it is but it it's it's still a chunk of money. It's still a chunk of money that they're gonna be collected money for that doesn't exist. The though the reason for that expenditure doesn't exist anymore so why did they drop the amount tools so all that's in the pot. And -- have been talking about all day and got about -- had a full call board all day I've got one open line got a stack of text messages but let's get -- -- you -- -- -- isn't Terry Nigel you know. I'm sponsored by Clinton. Did well I'll appreciate your patience on this Larry -- many people in front. Well okay I just want to make a couple of points here. First of all response and long range goals that you just mentioned. If they hit it depends where you live. Now at the price of gasoline and where I'm Terry your car is not going to be drive and all of real ground to get to the city. You know I mean you have to think about that just because it is. It doesn't mind and it -- how is it going to -- I mean it's your principal. About not cross the bridge going to be worth the amount of gasoline that you're going to be spending too well that for principle so it's like that's what a ball bounces. -- it's eleven Terry tower I do you know not to drive all the way around it's like to fifteen miles to go -- that you -- bridge. Plus to get back to -- so that that's that. Ruben at all if you've gone straight to the city -- -- depended also depends on where you going only on the side. Kmart is this despite I've been paid him 447 years tolls. On this bridge and I think it's a matter of principle here those are broken promises. 47 years except when kept them I think it was him to patrols off everything works mostly even with one bridge. That that's fine. Personally I think this. Sixteen votes kind of smells. A wish I had seventeen more lands. Then you like I do. Because that I'd I'd just like -- but I I also wonder why. You know people maybe and while Wednesday's student who did this election is -- -- -- -- actually have more that's a live and on the West Bank they don't use it that much and and people -- may have just you know. Said yes you know and you know I don't get it and I just don't get that. You know you gotta think about he gets twenty years. I don't understand the twenty year deal yeah I mean poppy 92 by it and popping out the world I'm sure. But you know I'm taking my grandkids and and can't. -- leaders still some people would go to UN goal and two lane memorial where they go to college or high schools and stuff like that. They're going to be paying tolls and the kits will be tight control. I don't get it. -- I just don't get I think it's a lot of discrimination here. And I think the whole thing mistakes and -- it gets for -- people don't pay for that. You know why why why don't they -- I think you -- in a car which no data to say all right but you don't pay it. -- -- -- They -- the paper -- -- pay for everything else wealthy pay for the I don't understand. I think it's gonna hurt don't they West Bank positions are gonna suffer. One way or another I don't missed a -- stand. That at all they wonder what people global which shoppers are well surely he took the -- and they blocked. Typical -- -- shop and everything else so I just don't understand the whole thing and I'm very very disappointed. And I I just think the whole thing stinks. Well not you're not alone entity I'm norm -- -- just like it's a deal well and tell the truth. If they would of two with three different things I don't think it was obviously a close call sixteen votes but the people who know the people who voted no. -- PO. IQ war. If you they would of done it instead of twenty years if they would've done it like OK let's when's the next governor's election three years and from that. Yeah when's the next when's the next time everybody who put up this legislation when's the next time they got to step up and asked people vote for will make it apple. Well you know instead -- point. But I'd I'd I don't trust the situation have been around long time 72 years and I don't trust. The politicians I don't trust Apollo eight promises they make and everything else is something wrong with missiles situation. And just total discrimination I don't buy that and never will and I feel sorry for the people come on up. And my grandkids and everybody else and I I just think it's it's it's a bad deal. It holds generation's going to be pain in the dollar that's -- it. If that they got to go but quickly do you think that Jack the price in college. And you know it. I'm sure the price as well not technically because again that they don't have to pay for the police department -- -- still -- anymore but the twelfth so that tells the same. But one of the expenditures is -- air ago prices automatically. It is not gonna hurt me. I don't travel the bridge anymore I'm retired the last but I don't go to these bank and that's perhaps too good I don't even care about driving anymore but I feel sorry. For the generation coming up in my kids enough. And their kids my grandkids and nobody else. I I just think it's a bad deal him I I hope that he if there's a recount or something else is that I just. I really am very upset about it and -- that that's that's Sam of that story. I appreciate your call it -- or daycare -- statement there all right. 26 point seven wanna open line jump on its stacks that text messages. And think lawsuit to reclaim money not used on the West Bank with a previous tolls not just accept we will do better well filed a lawsuit go ahead. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- A spot that was speaking of that let's find out what's going on -- traffic on a -- 87 and come back and its budget -- a couple of profit -- to. -- cajun cannon Bobby -- Thursday morning 9/11 the grand opening of the hhgregg appliances and match brand. -- there was things stations and gumbo.

The and it. It. Q well on the seat Q what do you. It is not you know that -- be -- for a lot. Particular -- is sort. Well as it is the last two bridge economists that crosses the Mississippi River the very last one and it is the fifth most traveled bridge. In in the United States I mean and and look at war and the New Orleans region. As far away not the one not a huge market but for a actual use of the bridges number five I mean. It I can see the justification for having at all. If you spend the money on the bridge and nothing else and and that's just you haven't -- that where's where's the transparency this that that's what the moment. Oval critics brought it all predicted a technical. Why -- total. -- So. Well okay. Why don't want someone brought -- -- -- -- -- the keeper tore -- to get a picture. I. Know I know a lot. Because.

That they were for years and years and years have been talking about building that. Big cargo airport moments or maybe that's how they pushed through. The bonds though the ruling to bill to put that separates because that's where. You know there -- gonna have the airport. The river and the rail and the highway all conversion -- big thing and that's never happened. That maybe why it built it but hey guess what you know what put that hole on every bridge that crosses the Mississippi River and use that money for all of the -- You know. Put the money on on. You know reduce the amount here's somebody sent me a text. The tolls for -- tag users were reduced. With a tolls were extended last time well number one you don't have a police force there anymore so the tolls on at the paper that. Number two the blue ridge is paid for so you're not pay him on the bond. Took to pay off the bond anymore because they've already made that payment.

An independent Election Day rolls around and they don't vote. Or they don't donate money or time to the candidate of their choice. You know I mean that it really essentially boils down to me we're sitting here having this argument about sixteen votes. But it was sixty people I got out voted as the longest as a legit election and they can't prove any fraud. If you don't like the way these people that it did go find -- get get behind a candidate that you think will.
