So why that's in on the auction then again if it's not up yet it will be soon. And we talk all of earlier about this southern graced distillery is up in Mount Pleasant. This is a tour package for four to go visit the only distillery in the United States that is housed in a former prison. And they are producing the first illegal whiskey into various counties since prohibition. And the more I read about it in the more pictures I see of the place and so on it's pretty it is it's really really cool. And they were writing back and forth to share it kids first. I'm the owner Leann Powell. And Leann road to shared a -- I made a commitment when we first opened our distillery to make a contribution to charity for every bottle we sell that fits swords this fits into our mission well meaning supporting kids first. And then they talk about the six products that they produce. And the accompanying. Non profit. That benefits. From their presence they do way. They they do particle sun dog won thirty and that benefits local animal shelters until every one of their. Bottles of booze. Benefits. Portion of the sales benefits some organization.

And they do us on dog pink lemonade and a sun dog apple Dublin and out. Conviction small batch burba and and but this is a VIP tour after dark. Offer twelve at whiskey prison is what certificate will be four. I'm so therein on the auction and and none and if that's not up yet it will be out soon so. Anyway things are start to percolate I got an update few moments ago on our compares county basket. Neal start your engines gift basket which just contains all sorts of stuff our race. And embarrass county. Related. And I don't get to the details of that before too long. So. So we're still drastically behind on especially on money. But. I by that I felt good about yesterday you know some of the things that happened to us yesterday's gun David's contribution came through yesterday and the speaking of NASCAR the speedway children's charities send out checks to us yesterday for a grand. Nom and net debt to that that that helped us immensely. So and I I I am I would have to have somebody would have to remind me but to a children's charities speedway children's charities. I don't think has been on board with us until the last few years. And no they just kind of hit it into the best to my knowledge and that's is probably wrong may probably have been in touch was sure and return to the best to my knowledge they just kind of showed up on time. With a big check. Om and thank you I I appreciate that more American know begin to join. So was so things are happening in the auction is on air from three to 6 PM up 48 hours from now on Thursday and then our big Friday night broadcast six to 9 PM. And it just south Mecklenburg high school where last year at three hours we got over 700 bikes and a whole bunch of toys and a whole lot of money. And no we're certainly open to duplicate the same this Friday itself neck high school going to be cold. I was hoping it was gonna be like fifties during the day on Friday it looks more like it's gonna be upper forties so I have a film that means can be pretty chilly out there are six to 9 PM but you know what. To quote a famous politician. It's for the children. All right. You all I have had dead discussions about the old ranch house. I don't look at it boulevard before. The effect I mentioned that since I've moved Belmont a year and a half ago a's past the old building which they just recently of torn down and turned into a parking lot for this. Overflow parking and a new enterprise that's going on in no Wilkinson Wilkinson is a slowly but surely becoming parking lot city. Which is a good thing. These are all lots where you can park your car get shuttled into the airport no private enterprises no Sorenson fourth we know that whole area is gonna change out there. Has ever since the main entrance to the airport is kind of now shifted awful Wilkinson boulevard rather than Billy Graham. There's can upload. One it's no longer a service station and other one has kind of a beautiful service station convenience store out there are predicted those things will get raised sooner or later enough. I've become mega gas stations were our rent cars pull in and fill up other tanks before getting back to their rent cars ever seen heard every airport I've been at a senate. Huge. A gas station at the entrance to the air reporter near that no where everybody gas is that the rent cars to to get him back and. So that all areas gonna change out their bet the ranch houses are gone. I I have heard about the ranch house and its reputation your almost from the day I pulled him to tell no 27 years ago. And they were famous for their cocktail sauce and their ranch salad dressing. And apparently they're their cocktail sauce could actually. Solve any congestion issues you may have. At any given time it was supposed to be part too spicy. Well there's a place in Belmont now downtown Belmont to Susan and I went to over the weekend called the Belmont specialty foods. And this is guy. Luke man love and he's got a got a partner or to. But he's a Johnson and Wales grad and and an entrepreneur or. And he has opened up. This. Specialty foods store in downtown Belmont. Which is good down there are at the end of the town real see the veterinarian. Any carries all sorts of stuff that I'd never heard of before others company I guess at a Virginia called Betts sees does peanut butter. Killer. And all sorts of specialty items but one of the things I saw in the cooler case and got started to a guy that is a native of this area and he was standing there at the checkout line. With. Cocktail sauce and salad dressing in his hand. And he said this is supposed to be the original ranch house cocktail sauce. And salad dressings so if you're. If you're one of those who over the years has been yearning yes it's three point. I who has been yearning for the old ranch house cocktail sauce I can't vouch for that never had the old grand gels cocktails also would know if it was authentic a player tasted it. But. It's supposed to be. My head on down to my new hometown don't want to especially foods and and and then take a look around there because. It got a really interesting new collection of I I would assume they'll see what sells what doesn't and brings new stuff and picked up out and so on and so forth but it's a really nice addition to downtown Belmont. But to the ranch house cocktail sauce and they are ranch salad dressing is. Could very will be available to you have to go there. There's a big election going on it'll Alabama today. Roy Moore wrote in on horseback as he has in the past. Along with his wife she came in now by horseback as well. Does this conjure up while lying to anybody that. And the horse that you wrote in on. It. Does that start off more than exploded but I can't. Yeah well I would assume that there are probably are many people in the state of Alabama are all other there's enough to not keep him from being elected or not I guess we'll find out tonight when the would result comeback kid but when I found out I apparently he's gonna have are going into the polls on by a respect. But there are given that contentiousness of this. On election and and the national contentiousness. Of this election and Lindsey Graham came out yesterday and said mandate they sent Roy Moore to the send it to be a gift that keeps on giving for the Democrats. And he's probably pretty right about that but nonetheless the election takes place today and it's up to the people of Alabama to choose their represented even know nobody else should do to choose it for them. So he wrote is so horse to the polls as he's done in the past and cast his ballot for the US senate race it is. He voted for. You think he voted for him. I mean are really only he would actually truly positively without a shadow of a doubt no. Whether or not he's a dirt bag or not. You why he might not care but he would. He would be the one guy given that fact that the evidence is all kind of. It has been like 38 years and some of these cases since today is who you can't say that. I mean regardless I I don't know that I would vote Roy Moore but. But it didn't it seem just a little. But it comes up crucial election. This has been bothering these women for so long that finally after 38 years they just burst right before election. I don't know. He more expressed confidence that he'll win and he said that after the election will be the time to discuss whether or not he's allowed to take a seated Nielsen. But the right phraseology there take a seat in the senate. I'm just asking about it. Mr. diction and. All right let me Argo Wasilla while Karl on WBT and in all move onto a Keaton Jones for a couple of seconds say Karl. I think gone a long time look at Harry don't. Cut. So I don't wanna clarify something you sell a lot like albeit momentarily came out that would work at it and I'm a big election. And not really the way it happened. So there was a little quarter down there going back to his old hometown doing a profile piece. The first woman and the first woman out you know at the first woman was tracked down by a reporter. The other women were not the first pepper or women work. The first four women work now I I don't know if that's sure not. Ideas to helping opportunity but the bottom line if they kept hearing people remember and they tracked them down. And that's when that's how this all started out some of the other what came out after they heard about the other one. But the first four of them came out it no reporter found him not the other way around. OK I I'm aware of that with the First Lady. As to what I've aggregate as to what what the was on the on the rest of them I don't know it seems it seems bizarre to me that this all. Listen I don't like I said earlier I I don't know that I would vote to Roy Moore. There's so there's other reasons beyond what he's accused of here there would only keep me from voting for him but. That said. You've got stuff that's been going on for 28 and 38 years and all the sudden be aura crucial election it hits the fan I gave that did you can't tell me that that's not questionable. Didn't think that would Harvey Weinstein though if you look at him with a lot of concerted look at having go yet he can really good financing you know Democrat. You know it took one or two people kind of going wait a minute. I could happen to me and all the sudden the floodgates opened because. That's that's fine audio all I'm saying Carly it's reasonable doubt in my mind there's reasonable doubt. So I didn't do it Darius and there's nothing there that tells me absolutely positively. Who's telling the truth and who's not telling the truth in this story. Paired up our regular credit card there go I understand. Then there's enough gray area and all of this dead that's the problem with being accused. Of anything like this or accusing somebody like this. In unless you have hardcore evidence. Bennett says he said she said. You can you can ruin people buy do wonders. I also understand how nasty politics is do you not listen to talk radio do you not listen to Rush Limbaugh do you not listened. Don't go watch Fox News and CNN in an MSNBC. Do you not understand how. Dirty politics is. So nothing is out of the realm of question. When it comes to politics. These are the people that we've elected office. Week. Really all hold collection of pretty decent people. Have sent. I collection of cut throat politicians. To Washington. I don't know why you can't. Not seed. How dirty. That profession yes that doesn't mean everybody in that profession is dirty that means they play hardball in that profession. When you have somebody that gets accused or convicted. Of a crime. And can still come back and run for office again and get elected. I find that to be unbelievable. Then people would allow. Their representative. To be eight proven dirt bag. So politics is the nasty is of all businesses. Dirty air than prostitution. To talk about the oldest professions. Com and sole win when you get to do I think Roy Moore is capable of what he's accused of yeah sure. He may be absolutely guilty of every count but he's accused. But I also believe that these people many of them could be earning a paycheck or can be part of a conspiracy. Or that this could be a listen what they've done to trump and I'm not that trump voter. Arm and I find him is questionable as many of you do all the while low forties. Yeah I I like I like some of what he's accomplished for what he's trying to accomplish. So I'm not totally against him from a from a policy standpoint. But. Politics is a nasty business this this. Since the since trump took office any any fuels his own fiery he's his own worst enemy. I every time he tweets. He walks himself into a corner. So she you know that that that's his problem. But it's been death by a thousand paper cuts as far as the press is concerned. That little contentious back and forth that they had yesterday. That the tensions boiling over in that competitive they're gonna come mug combative briefing that they had yesterday with Sarah Huckabee Sanders. And and CNN's Jim Acosta. She brought up some decent points. This is then every single day something no. And if you actually analyze some of the stories that are being and put on into the press it's not necessarily. So one I'm trying to think of right now in my I had. We have the one about the subpoena of the financial records that they're cutting at a dead end in December when anybody else are we would never know indigenous was to Nordegren juries. Two anyway. We still O yeah out on the other wanted that the one that broke a week or ten days ago. Where allegedly. Trump was questioning the tape the Entertainment Tonight tape. But there was never anybody that went on record as saying that he questioned the authenticity of whether or not he was the voice on that tape. That was a sources said article inside the White House sources said. There was never anybody that was implicated anybody that was named anybody that was any thing that was as near as I could tell. A reporter. Deciding that they would make up this story about trump denying that was his voice. And put it out there and watch all these lap dogs all these reporting lap dogs picked up that story and run with it like it was fact. But we never determined it was fact it was a reporter hearsay. With no validity. And nothing more than anonymous sources. For its beginnings anyway. That's what that's what the trump administration has gone through since day one so. Us and I it is Roy Moore capable of what he's accused of Sharia us. Are the women who are accusing him capable of working for the Democratic Party or something yes sure they are. Why no the absolute truth now neither deal. Up to the people of Alabama to send him. But this is politics this is nasty. This and this is this is dirty. This these are the people that we have chosen. To run the people's business. If you wanna questioned the integrity. Of the process. Question the integrity of the American voter who keeps on sending people to Washington. They're now in many cases have a long history. Of not. Doing what they said they were gonna do. Incumbents win because marketing works in marketing is having your name of put four before. Consumers over and over and over and over again that's why you choose Coke instead of Ed's Tola. That's why you pick incumbents instead of people you pick names you're familiar with not necessarily names that you're not familiar way. So. That's all I'm saying about Roy Moore. The people of Alabama today airlift for the hell of a choice. What happened to the third party candidate that we talked about there was government and I haven't heard anything about him I was almost excited about him this was a former. When he a former marine or something like that. Conservative. I would give you an alternative fuel. Mean now people of Alabama and that district don't want old rapper Doug don't wanna go elected Democrat it's not their does not their history that's not their. The report's author foundation. If you were living in Alabama wouldn't you resent the fact that you were either had to vote for a Democrat Roy Moore. We had talked about Keaton Jones yesterday. He's the young man Lou I did the bullying video with his com. And since then the Keaton family has that the fans. Com and we'll talk about that when we come out of the 4 o'clock news. Quite frankly I don't I don't care about what the family is or isn't. And Keaton jones' representative. Of a whole host stove. How old Lindsay I don't remember. Twelve Levin told what to. Armed kids. That god may be artists. Cute as some of the other kids that maybe aren't as personable as some of the other kids that aren't as. Athletic is maybe some of the other kids that art as whatever as some of the other kids. That undergo what we've all every generation that did this hasn't changed it may be worse today than in general was when we were kids but. Can't get bullet. Kids are not allowed to have belong to a clicks and kids kids can be cruel. People can be cruel. So why I don't I don't care about. I mean I don't know what Kimberly Jones is arisen that his mom. But I know that that that twelve year old kid that did that video even if that was staged. Represents. A whole bunch of really miserable kids. That go to school every day. And in here and catch the wrath of immaturity and hate. And and I and the stuff that's been in schools forever and that does not. It does not diminish anything that I felt for Keaton Jones watching that video the other day. You look at that kid and you tell me that that kid doesn't look like he's primed for bullying. That's not right. So while my heart stays with Keaton Jones and refer you wanna what turn on him because his mother may or may not. You know. It's a couple of pictures of her I guess for the confederate flag oh my god. She must just beyond terrible terrible person. Although she tells ABC news. This morning the Good Morning America or show. It was meant to be ironic and funny and extreme. And then she told The Today Show I've spent most of my life or I started told The Today Show that where is that. So they mean that you know yesterday he was a hero. You know the world loved us and today the world hates us. And I don't. I don't have any feeling for the Jones family one way or the other but I got a lot of feeling for Keaton Jones are cured and any other kid that technically he represents. That goes to school every day and hates it because of the way that other people treat him. So. Pay to significant indeed it did did may be mad when I started reading about this backlash because why can't a story just be a story and immoral why can't. Why can't add him but why can't what we had yesterday just be one it was on face value. What is always have to be Ed chapter beat. To all this crap why does everybody have something in their past. Or some picture or some some Torah there on. You know one of them don't want the principles of FaceBook is out another press right now talking about how guilty he feels about what he's done to society because of FaceBook. Social media and cell phones and computers are gonna be the ruin a nation of all of us. Because it's. So I had heard of that day it made me mad yesterday grotto and it found out. Then all of a sudden now there's a chapter bead of this story why can't why can I can't keep Jones storage has been the key Jones story some kid that. He's just going through his own private hell. That reached out to the world and said why are people have to be like that and somehow or another got the attention of millions. Can't that just be the story who cares what is mother is or isn't. Any if she is or isn't. The net just kinda adds to his story done that. Then here's a twelve year old kid who not only. Finds disfavor. At school. Which like for most of us is his work is his environment is his life. But also may have been born into not the greatest of circumstance I you know and I already know best driver I feel guilty about saying that. So big on that when data sure upn WBT hi I'm. I don't argue here in the carry out more to throw it into the mix on this old quote more and more burning. All right I'm home I'm primer I know aren't the only channel on TV in Portland or you don't hear about it. Period duck did you do get younger and get out about my. And neo and there you bill Owens and and the question I have is are we as society. Somewhat complicit in his own. This whole scenario here. Now because those two songs were essentially your written out by songwriters as teenagers to teenagers are you are young girl about young love. Well army but it is is played or general public. It and I did I did feel like it did throughout the day. It may have influenced him I'm not saying this is where why what he's been. That's a that's a nice us rage reached and this but I bind it. I. Parish pastoral slices here tonight sundown marks the first out of pocket. Eight day air Jewish holiday commemorating the air rededication during the Arab second century BC the second temple in Jerusalem when no Jews rose up against. They're Greek Syrian rulers. And so Jews around the world will be all celebrating for the next week by a lighting the traditional menorah and knowing eating a potato pancakes known has lost its. And Jim for oil doughnuts and no play and games and exchanging gifts and no undoing all that so on. So but that on your. Things Episcopalians and understand list. I'm more cold weather is coming in extreme frigid air straight from the Arctic we're supposed to be are pretty cold. Like 24. Degrees. Last night. Art tomorrow excuse me. Need to be Figaro announcing in rather than on what could for. Clear sky tonight so it's gonna get down to about 24 degrees so overnight tonight bowed to under 224. And and we were shouldn't see a hire me or my any higher than 4749. Degrees tomorrow be sunny. But it Libby pretty cold. And bit by Friday which is the data were all kind of concern a lot of sun on Friday highs in the upper forties. So laws 69 out of south Mecklenburg high school. For our amazing bike toy eight. Money drive that's south Mecklenburg high school from 6 to 9 o'clock with food trucks and a whole lot of fun and Jim and it's barbecue and a whole nine yards. Demeanor of the cold when. I don't think it'll be the coldest one we've ever had we've. We've been down in the twenties with a breeze blow and before so we survived. But it'll be a little chilly on a Friday night out of south America's schools the highs in the upper low forties in mobile hanging out in the thirties probably pretty close to freezing by the time you don't want that thing at 9 o'clock. But. Why it's for a good cause and and saw a year when we really need as many people as possible there will come out and help us support center kids first because were off for summer is another we're just not hit our we're just not hit my marks that we normally hit. And and maybe we will you know maybe maybe the next couple nasal bring things that I don't. Foresees that generally seems to happen with kids first ceremonial walk in the door and surprise that a lot of us but to. They weigh it it's fine a lot of fuel went to the website to our kids first in the Carolinas daughter or yesterday and made a donation. Knows all added up to about 575 bucks so I appreciate that very much somebody walked in the store today. At McMullen pre market we've got that's for our temporary storefront this for the Christmas season and I handed Sheridan now. And now a company check for a thousand dollars so that was good and I got an email today from a gentleman knew. Is not a talent but are rose says senator 250 dollar donation today. We are still law.

What what I ever do without us. Because it's all about helping people and nobody said it was going to be easy so that's the way that's the way that when works. All of ago mayors hello to Steve at 70457. All of a tennis Dave. I hate John Tower you and thank you.

You years you great outlook is persevere so little and talk about with the bullying saying you were talking about. And health care what anybody showed our. GM education and that hurt me.

They did it do different strokes for different folks. I'm sure some took that avenue and and others I think it leaves a permanent mark and probably keeps them from our reaching the aspirations and nine and the capabilities that that they they yeah I you know I as I saved it affects different personalities and different ways. That what you just described as essentially what your dad would have been in in the 1950s and sixties would say you know they've punch him in the nose.
