Today is June 19. Tony eighteen of course but on this date in 1992. We head. Did you say the big 12 punch. Here in south central Kansas two rounds. To separate rounds of severe thunderstorms. Ravaging south central Kansas. Round one struck early in the morning 1992 is the date now. When severe thunderstorms erupted over Cedric county. Bombarding some areas with a hail as large as soft balls. Later that morning around to obstruct an even larger area with a baseball to softball sized hail. These two episodes combined to injure eighty 69 people and caused around 600 million dollars in damage. At the time it was a costliest natural disaster in Kansas history. All these giants you know hail stones coming down and it the hardest hit was. Basically tends. Right into the west of Belarus to months stadium I think it does in the neighborhood about their places of the blessed to the baseball stadium yeah in between there and Friends University. And a lot of those houses just got. Health is not only depth of the car windows were just shadow every ruler. And it was but it meant was that they read the insurance claims for the roof so the cars just still went on and on all yep and a you know they would have to in those situations as always bring in. Adjusters claims adjusters open up get these big tents Conan parking lots and just happy event. And make appointments to get their claims done. Yet reverend we lost our roof of that nineteen and now we are under Riverside which is kind of on the edge of the that's tough spot there but still. Nothing you gotta hailed the bill still has been a soft balls they're going to do some sort of damage. There and do something unusual storm to noses in the morning mister Morley think of summing in the late afternoon early evening and adding these horrible morning. Hail storms in 1990 in this state. 812 now Stevens in the morning on K in his says send the president trumpets talking about it national space. Force. Yesterday and he talked about that before Fox News radio is Evan brown is reverse this morning good morning Evan. So are you ready talk about the space force what they don't look like you're thinking. Well no one really knows do you the president hasn't exactly said what he really plants or it but I if we want to lose. Take it a good think about this album is the airports as it exists now. I have seen large contingent that is dedicated to space flight didn't and other uses of space that are often. Kept classified. It is feasible that you would just separate that part of the air force from the airport to create the space ports and have it be its own. Six branch of the US military. Yeah it's bit that's probably the easiest way to do that if that is that is in fact what the president wants to do. All of this of course would take action of congress sent them would require congress to actually fund the big branch of the military. But that that might be what the president has in mind. Play and is similar to what happened in 1947 when they yeah government took it the air corps out of the US sirens in Japan Korea and the airport so. Such a beast can be kind of an easy transition take that part out and a you know I'm thinking about one of the big concerns back in the in the fifties. When reached began space exploration the Russians put up the sputnik and all of that. One of the big concerns Eisenhower and I remember president Eisenhower was the militarization of space and making. And having it be you know faced them the place for re look at. Waste to nick crush other countries and so for the I don't think that's what we have in mind here but that was a bad major concern about space being yet you know someplace. Correct it and certainly wise and and and president Eisenhower decided that our exploration activities would be civilian in nature yeah and that mess even though it would rely on military. Aviators can be gotten. Astronaut. I didn't actually would be it civilian endeavor and I think the line was something similar to know astronaut and apply at a military rocket of some like that outlook. But the president. It was very adamant about that that the president Eisenhower. What exactly east peace force military would do is still really I'd known would it be defensive in nature. Do we have a legitimate fear that other nations might try to be cute and kind of space war their program that we would need to. Not match so that we could defend ourselves from. And Andy so does it really require new branch of service. In the air force already does have. Operations in space like I said that are clandestine order classified at least. And the and the but also another thing about this that we're not that we should really talk about it that is. Would one person would you work of someone else someone especially coming out of high school. These recruited and be able to enlist in the space force. And what that actually I. Ike is about everyone who would listen it's completely unexpected and I think that's the reality. But what this person end up being highly trained technical person who after their military commitment. You know in service to their country would come out and have a great resume and be able to into the workforce with a very high ate a high level of training. I that could be beneficial for the nation as a whole. And not to mention to have this high tech labor force with the efficiency of the military it is he it would be an amazing thing to app. And of course you lose the you know as someone that looked at in the would do this who would submit themselves to this. Would be eligible for education benefits like. Like people who would list in the in the army in the navy in the airports. And benefits for retirement so hopefully that BA would do a better job by that point. But but these are all these are all real questions. All right thank you Sarah appreciate your time this morning Fox News radio's Evan brown commenting and helping us it's us understand a little better with the mean to a president a trump has in my free space force. In separate military force. Or if authorities say a 48 year old Florida man raised a can of beer and drank it in one gulp after a sheriff's deputies stopped him on suspicion of drunk driving. Darrell royal regal. Told Monroe Monroe county sheriff's investigators he was scared when he fled in his pickup truck his deputy Nancy Lopez. Stepped out of his patrol car regal drove up for a short distance before stopping. Riddle had three prior drink drive convictions between 2003 and one in ten and a fourth is pending from Tony seventeen. Reports has really got out of distract hand in hand and drank the contents in one big goal right there in front of the sheriff's deputy. Apparently this guy has not been. Punished severely enough by the authorities so far to do anything about his drinking problems so he's going to probably wind up killing somebody. With his drunk driving and it. Is no control ads apparently is a lifetime problem you know. 818 now Stephen dead here on KE NN says here on Tuesday morning let's take a look at sports now. With.

But he got his act together last night against the royals and the city did have a pretty good shot again Adam in the fifth inning you heard the game on K if they. And we think back to any number five for the royals they had a golden opportunity really to turn the game around the first four hitters reached an air field single.
