Okay, he’s got an important guest on huh. So you might want to stick around for murder Jonathan Rothschild going to be here. But before that we need to catch up on another volume of Corona you are that’s right. Last time we caught up with Sal he had finally tracked down a local Tucson Femme Fatale Mona La Paloma. That’s right and confronted her about the covid-19 testing kits. She had planted in his trunk. However, she revealed that her hand had been forced by Arizona governor duck view see apparently duck had been running covid-19 testing kits all over the state and some kind of illegal testing ring. Could this case go straight to the

top. You want in crack the case that celibate or credential coronavirus are?

My way back to my home office Mona’s words kept running through my mind the governor running covid-19 testing kits. This could be the case that took me straight to the top. I had to stay focused but I couldn’t help thinking about finding Mona shacked up in a little Bungalow when all this was over me having saved her from the governor’s dastardly Deeds sounded too good to be true but predict deserves. Is that right? Wasn’t even out of the woods yet. Let alone poolside with The PiƱa Colada. So I focused on I had to get dirt on my duck was up to or else this lead was going to be colder than last night’s dinner. So I decided to do what any decent detective one a zoom bombed his weekly staff meeting my camera and microphone from the to the untrained eye. I was totally invisible A Silent Assassin technology is my blade. Unfortunately, all they discussed was a new initiative to secure better. Thing for public schools. So that was a bust. I was about to call the whole thing quits when I got a mysterious

message subject line Doc’s Dirty. Deeds meet me at the base of a mountain at midnight signs of friends. So the trail was heating back up like last night’s dinner in my microwave oven. It was a risky move, but I had no other choice. Once again, I quote my mask and gloves as a prepared to Brave the unknown midnight rolled around them getting comfortable. The shadow of a now that’s when I saw him slowly making his way around the corner Nigel Delgado. One of the most disgruntle unpaid interns I’ve ever met kids a bit Young’s already be disaffected by local government, but I listen to what he has to say. Nigel tells me he was working late last week from Duck came in being escorted like two big guys. They took him into his private office. They were in there for about five minutes before they made their way back out Nigel bless. His heart was worried about dr. So we follow them all the way to the That’s where he sees a familiar sight happens voting boxes from their Van Into the back of ducks Kong.

Nigel tells me this has been happening every Wednesday for about a couple weeks and just like that. I have first-hand witness to this whole thing the governor heading up a covid-19 testing kit dark might not know it but we had a date next Wednesday. I for one couldn’t wait to make a lasting impression.

Sal certainly the guy to call look at that another chapter unfolds Corona War I’m hooked. So now we’ve got a VIP in the community that’s got some say about a lot of what’s going on local business guy local here are mine because man is a lot of stuff that he does that I love the most so joining us right now is one Jasper look. Oh, I’m sorry. No, it’s Brian Hoskins. That’s right. Brian Hoskins from Five Points Market Brian. How are you doing, sir? Oh, you know great. I know it’s my job to Just happy I know they’re they’re not asking you to do that. So that’s the thing. Yeah, pretty good. Right? I mean all things considered it’s a tough time but um, you know, thanks for coming on and thanks for talking to us about someone what’s going on. Yeah. My pleasure. Heck. Yeah, so first and foremost Pet your dog from know first and foremost. Can you tell us the basic philosophy of Five Points? Just so people get to know you? Yeah. We we strive to be an ethos driven business kind of was our goal from

the beginning focused on good food and giving it to people within our community, you know, definitely. Yeah just like that Jasper gets a better and she’s about to walk in here. But but yeah trying to be good for her. For a community and make good things. There. She is. She’s got the goods hook it up Uncle Source local. That’s how we do it. But yeah Brian, it’s been nuts. Obviously a lot of what I shouting. I have a my probable axis, but a lot of what has been going on. It’s all about adapting. It’s all about trying to stay positive. I mean, that’s any old a PMA what I’m all about the feeling that keeps me sane since so, but that’s how have you adapted like during the pandemic like have you been Doing it drastically we close the dining room because we had you and that was that was the start of it. And then we pivoted to using the word pivot every other day.

We started selling a whole lot of groceries and we are focusing on local produce local meat continuing with our menu being available online working really hard every day with a small true. Yeah, yeah now it’s big deal and I again a lot of people thank you for it because much like anything going on right now in the best thing about Tucson is like you have fans, you know, you do have fans and it is some of those people that really got to remind some of the other community members and sound like you’re a part of this bigger thing and we have to support each other because there are some people out there doing really big things and you guys need help. So I senior about to launch will be funder campaign. We’ve worked with Ceci get a lot of components. Can you tell us a little about At that process and like what type of you know, what you hope to achieve. Well, hope to get some money right up. Next question. Smart makes a lot of sense now. Okay, keep going. I think yeah. I think we’re just trying

to promote ourselves make a little bit of money keep ourselves, you know to keep us above water to help us move past this pandemic move into the next chapter 5 Points. We want to expand our retail selection moving forward and focus a lot more on that than we have in the past and figure out what service is going to look like as we come out of the pandemic and be able to do that, you know have the resources to do that continue continue serving our folks like yeah, I appreciate let me ask you this now. Give me some positive me something good gimme something fun. What’s at least one of the I like to get people smiling at these interviews? We got you doing a little bit and that point like I like to make these things a little lighter because it’s hard to talk about this. So just tell me one of the best things that you’ve seen or dealt with as far as things are concerned because of this situation. I feel like our community and the folks that are supporting Five Points of in super vocal super positive.

It makes me feel really good to be doing what we’re doing

we get we get letters often from some folks. And that feels really good. Yeah, we’ve got an art from kids say that our pancakes are better than their moms. Despite how many they their mother makes that’s now on our window that that’s that’s fantastic. That’s that’s kind of what I was looking for. That’s exactly right, right? Yeah because it is something for as low as it it seems man when people try to lift you up it is not it is something people really can lift you up. Yeah. So again, we’ve had overwhelmingly positive responses from from everybody. Heck. Yeah. Well, I thank you for hanging out. Thanks for doing everything you do and remember to support Five Points Five Points of doing a lot. It’s my favorite place for breakfast at least one of them breakfast the best time of day so that’s right. Be safe. Be safe to thank you Ikea No, right. So it looks like on the old itinerary. We’ve got some puppets ahead. Looks like Zach answers ahead which means looks like former mayor Jonathan Rothschild

right ahead. So let’s get on with it and keep the show ago, and it’s see HGTV, baby.

It’s going to be a big show tonight. The former mayor is on we’re going to get some dance lessons. I can’t wait. Yeah. Hey, do you think I get to ask the mayor some questions? Nah, the only public he’s talking to his Zach. Do you think Frank and as the former mayor of few smart questions? No. Don’t think Frank can do that and I don’t think he’s allowed to ask him any questions.

Here and we are looking forward to our conversation tonight with the former mayor of Tucson Jonathan Rothschild our celebrity endorser of community backed loans that we are focusing on with the community Investment corporation for mayor Jonathan Rothschild was elected first in 2011 serve two terms. Through 2019 just left office last fall with a goal of Greening Tucson through recovery from a tough time the Great Recession and laying the groundwork for a lot of the good things that we’re seeing. Now former mayor Jonathan Rothschild, welcome on the are things for being with us tonight. How are you good exactly. Couldn’t think of a better thing to do on Saturday night to be with you. I would absolutely agree. So I’ll call you Jonathan from here on out. That’s my instruction. But Jonathan you’re a celebrity endorser of what we’re calling Community backed loans. These are with the help of the community Investment corporation Community backed loans, give local community members the opportunity

to land or invest in local businesses. So important right now when Any of the enemy the executive director of the community Investment corporation reached out to you to share with you about these type of loans. You were immediately interested you hopped on you were all in what what what got you on board? Yeah. Well the Kiva program the keep a platform is one that has been tested internationally for several decades now and so when Danny with help a growth Partners and committee investment Corp, which are two very solid lenders with a lot of infrastructure for Lending or able to partner with the Kiva platform. That’s exciting for Tucson. And the reason it’s exciting is the Wekiva has created is a microlending structure which really allows people who might not otherwise be able to access. All loans. These are loans. I think up to $15,000. They might not otherwise be able to access them and this creates a platform for allowing them to get that needed Capital whether it’s for equipment or tenant

improvements or consolidating debt business expansion, but particularly now when we’ve had this event that has shut down, you know a good part of the country and made it really difficult for small businesses. I mean small businesses are the are still the majority and and part of what our community does. Sure. Yeah, you mentioned it is $15,000 up to $15,000 a six-month or firm it. So often even in normal times a lot of businesses like the ones we’re talking about. Do you have a hard time accessing accessing Capital? What makes it so important right now to be supporting small businesses at this time? Could you go into more detail about the why we need the community fully backing these businesses to recover. Well, so the first thing about small business is that it’s our friends and neighbors. These are people who live in the community the money that they generate and create state. Raised in the community small businesses also tend to deal with other small businesses. So it’s friends and neighbors

supporting friends and neighbors and that’s really important particularly for our local economy. And particularly now, I mean, you can go down Fourth Avenue or you can go down south 12 and you can go up work or stone or down Grant and Broadway and If you look carefully you’re going to see a whole lot of small businesses and we’re in a difficult situation. Now where if these businesses fail those streets could become devastated and that could really set back a lot of what we’ve worked for years to get us to absolutely we’re talking with the former merits who’s on Jonathan Rothschild. Who is or work on a celebrity endorser of community backed loans and Jonathan is probably important to know that these are not donations. Right? These are investments. You’re a celebrity endorser. Meaning you’re an investor Jonathan which means you either get the money back or with interest if it’s if it’s successful, so this is a meaningful to way investment and ideally everybody’s winning out of this right,

you know, one of the things about the investment is you Get on the platform or if you call Carrie Davis I think is managing the fun for Kiva. You can kind of say these are the kind of things. I want to invest in whether it’s entrepreneurs or whether it’s restaurants or whether it’s minority businesses women-owned business and when you make that investment you you or you can follow the business you can support the business you can go in and and and talk and Mentor the business and because it’s all local so you can do it all here. And so it’s very interactive and you know, the great thing is if you were to alone $5,000 and over time that $5,000 is paid back you can load it again. So it’s money that you can continue to use the same money to support. What you see as a potentially prosperous business, I don’t know that it can make anybody feel better than but to see a business is just getting started out or struggling get back on their feet and then become very successful. Yeah, it’s huge and

I love how you put that Jonathan. It’s it really does recycle in the ideal scenario. I mean, this is my that can go over and over and over again to our community and you know Tucson is now we should probably also know Chiba. Hub we’re talking about Kiva quite a bit providing more resources to support entrepreneurs and small businesses to access the platform and successfully fun local campaigns a great collaboration of growth Partners, Arizona the community Investment corporation to really great organizations making things happen here, you know, this is this is interesting that kind of intro to our conversation this way Jonathan again fraying when you just jumped on your the former mayor of by just a few months really Of the City of Tucson December 2nd, I believe is when the current mayor was sworn in so it’s been about a half a year. You came into office managing the recovery from a devastating recession. I think this is a different situation. I think we’ll have a little bit an easier time

recovering but it’s going to be a hard recovery. Nonetheless is just so we just don’t know how does this fit in we’re talking about these Community backed loans. How does this fit in? In with rebuilding our community, we hear a lot about federal dollars State dollars big economic development initiatives. How do these locally driven Grassroots efforts fit into the whole ecosystem in your mind? Well in a sense they could turn out to be the foundation because you know as we know this first PPP went out incredible amount of money and It’s not reaching at least by what we’re hearing a lot of the small business that money was easily except, you know, there’s a rush to it. It was in 48-72 hours. It was gone and it was accessible to businesses that had a track record that had good accountants and had good lawyers that had ongoing banking relations these kind of loans which by the The way Zack, I think you can contribute as little as $25 and you’re on you can get on a platform to keep a platform

you can look at what’s available and she’s something you like and donate $25 or you can talk to a small business that you a friend of yours you may know as struggling and direct them into the platform into a Community Development Corporation. Either and they can get on the platform. It’s really pretty easy. There aren’t the same kind of requirements that would be required for instance getting the PPP money or going traditionally in the bank. This is really saying we want to support those businesses that may be not quite just starting out, but maybe the only did in business a year to and or that Business has been there longer and this crisis is putting them, you know in a tough situation and that’s so that’s what it’s for. It really does fit in its fitting into a into a gap really in what the larger entities are tried to do, you know, they’re still trying to prop up the Airlines and you know, the Big hotel chains and look there’s a place for that but that doesn’t get you to the street and

that doesn’t get you to all the individual small stories that really do make a community unique and in a place you want to live, right? And this is this is street-level. I mean, this is Main Street to Main Street. It’s fast. It’s quick its targeted we talked about we funder we funder.com is where folks can go to see local initiatives there we talk. The quite a bit about Kiva kiva.org or if you just want to make it really easy on yourself and you’re watching and you want to be an investor and that’s what we’re really wanting out of this is to use on helping Tucson mayor of former, mayor Rothschild the best way to keep up to date is to follow the community Investment corporation. Again, Danny was the guy who reached out to you about this a little bit back on social media cic is constantly sharing these campaigns these local individuals doing great. Of the things that we as local investors can invest in and former mayor Rothschild City of Tucson. We really appreciate you being at the tip of

the sphere on supporting these and advocating these and getting our community rallied around these because I can’t agree with you more. This is this is really important locally.

Hang on, hang on. All right, not worth the effort. It’s now time for the next installment of home and the Restless. Now our last episode we attended the zoom funeral of one Karen Henderson the matriarch of the Henderson Family who was mysteriously poisons by her tacos. Karen’s Widow custom text shocked everyone when they learned he is already engaged to a new woman his assistant Kimmy. We pick up from there.

Salvatore crenshaw’s the name you can call me Sal let me guess boy troubles my style. They don’t make them like you anymore do they I’m Christina Adams. I’m sure I’ve got boy problems, but that’s not why I Rings looks could kill. I’d be a dead man. I can tell Christina had a burning desire. No man, get extinguished. If you have tried. She’s the kind of broaden that out. Excuse me. Who are you talking to? Never mind that sweetheart. What’s the problem? My mother was murdered poisoned by my father’s mistress. I need you to prove it. It’s only a matter for the police – the cops are useless. They ruled it. An accident said her foul. Just foul. Those naturally point, but I don’t think the poison was natural at all. I think it was deliberately added by my father’s assistant. Can we Is the system and his mistress been on this planet long enough in a while men are fools. Listen here miss Adams a cheap, but I am Relentless. Are you sure you want your family’s Dirty Laundry darkening and doorstep.

I spoke the truth and whatever the cost it takes therefore what you wish for sweetheart. What else would I start other than the directly accused doubtful should give me a straight answer maybe if I pressed her on the details. She might let something slip so I gave her Her a ring gimme. Thanks for letting me Benji you then. I had to investigate the mysterious death of one disk. Aaron Henderson ask you a few questions. Sure. Mr. Crenshaw. Did you poison her? Absolutely.

Why I love where I live is a retail store in movement about encouraging people to love where they live and find appreciation and gratitude for the things that make a place unique as a small business owner in Tucson. It’s been a rocky road people that have had to rely in the Ask in person connections whether that’s in restaurants or retail those pandemic has really stifled business for a lot of people and caused people to think outside the box and find ways to continue to survive so that when this is over they can continue to have the business that they had before there’s a group in town called Tucson helping Tucson. They were raising funds for small businesses in Tucson to send to the community Investment corporation. They come up with a portfolio of options for businesses that need help in a assistance right now and then they figure out how to get those funds to them. So Tucson helping Tucson, they reached out to us and wanted to see if we could help spread the word and if we had any ideas

at first I said, of course we can spread the word and a few days later. I realized we have a great opportunity with our existing business to help this cause so when this started we reached out to our designer to put together a Tucson together logo for shirts that we can sell. We got the printer ready. We ordered the shirts and we wanted to get them out to the community. So we put them on our website with mock-ups of the shirts. And when we sell those shirts, we’re able to collect the money. We don’t as a business make anything off of the shirts. The money goes directly to community Investment corporation. So the more shirts that we sell the more money, we raise and can send to cic to help small businesses in Tucson. So as of today the Tucson together shirts have raised over fifty six hundred dollars to send directly to community investment. Operation for small businesses in Tucson overall Tucson helping Tucson and the community Investment corporation has raised over $100,000 to support

businesses in our community and by the middle of this month are on track to help 20 small businesses in our community in this season.
