6:35 Christopher Arps is a member of the Project 21 black leadership network and a managing partner with the public affairs and communications consulting firm Red Tail Strategies, LLC. He’s the cofounder of Move-On-Up.org and President of Americans for Citizen Voting (ACV), a 501(c)(4) dedicated to the belief that only citizens should vote in our local, state and national elections. He’s the afternoon drive co-host of The Tim Jones and Chris Arps Show on NewstalkSTL 101.9 & 94.1. Follow him on Twitter at @chris_arps.
He comments on national black history month.
An increasing number of black Americans are questioning progressive leaders and their policies that have often done more harm than good.
As America grapples with issues such as widespread crime, a crisis on the southern border, racist DEI (Diversity, Equity and Inclusion) policies and confusion on issues of gender and sexuality, Americans across all demographics are questioning where America went wrong.
And so, even as ambassadors with the Project 21 black leadership network recognize the achievements of black Americans during Black History Month, they are not just looking backwards but are also filled with optimism about the future.

Monday 02-05-24 Bill Meyer Show Guest Information
(Podcasts on www.BillMeyerShow.com)
6:35 Retired U.S. Army Sergeant Major and Author John deVerteuil discusses how our country may have put itself in a mess trying to help Ukraine. His book is “WE ARE AMERICA” – A voice for the Silent Majority https://www.amazon.com/We-Are-America-Silent-Majority/dp/1546607218/ref=sr_1_1?crid=1G1G7FEYWJF78&keywords=john+deverteuil&qid=1707275203&sprefix=John+DeVer%2Caps%2C171&sr=8-1
Did America Really Need To Get Involved In Providing So Much Aim To Ukraine?
The Russia/Ukraine war has certainly been a costly one – particularly for the United States.
Ever since President Joe Biden has opted to support Ukraine in this battle, he has vowed to devote billions of dollars to it for the cause. In the midst of this, however, Senate negotiations to finalize a bipartisan deal to provide wartime aid for Kyiv (while taking care of our own border woes) continues to hit snags, mainly thanks to House Republicans and former President Donald Trump.
But this shows that the U.S. just doesn’t have an understanding of what kind of mess it’s in. By trying to show support for Ukraine and even promising a great deal of money and even weapons, Biden has apparently left support for his own Americans in the dust. And keep in mind, this is with a migrant crisis taking place in our country.
So what happens now? Will Biden continue to push for Ukraine support, or will he have no choice but to try and turn the tide back in America’s favor as his supposed re-election bid begins to take shape?

With today’s “Where Past Meets Present”.
By Dennis Powers
One of thirteen children, Emmitt Tucker was born in 1892 in a log cabin on Jump Off Joe Creek near Grants Pass. He grew up in a stonehouse built by his father in 1901 close to the hamlet of Trail on the way to Crater Lake. Overlooking the Rogue River, the area is remote, scenic, and heavily snowbound in the winter. As he trudged to school in the early 1900s through deep snows, young Emmitt was already thinking how he could build something to transport people over the unpacked snow.
He began working on different devices; and in the early twenties, Tucker had built several spiral-driven machines with skis on the front and both sides. Driven by a motorcycle engine, he wasn’t satisfied with the performance. His goal was a snow vehicle that could travel over deep, soft snow–but with a minimum of expense and mechanical problems.
In 1938, he finally came up with the idea that worked. Revamping his approach, he centered on a machine that used pontoons and a revolving steel track with one ski in front and two pontoons for balance in the back. It had taken him twenty-four years of persistence and ingenuity. With this revolutionary design, Tucker built the prototype from salvaged parts and in his spare time. Fiberglass replaced later the steel pontoons, along with a mechanical design change with wheels that worked the rubber track forward.
While testing this in 1941 at Crater Lake, he stopped for lunch and met a stranger, who managed a mine near Mount Shasta. So impressed by the model’s performance, he bought it from Tucker right then. Moving in 1942 to Grass Valley, California, Emmitt set up his first production line. Using a six-cylinder Chrysler industrial engine, Tucker sold 70 of them, primarily to the railroads.
Three years later, he demonstrated his snow vehicle over snow-packed trails and logging roads on a 600-mile, midwinter trek from Mt. Shasta to Mt. Hood. In 1951, Tucker invented the four-track design with an independent suspension system that didn’t need the balancing skis. This allowed the machine to traverse rugged terrain. In the historic first motorized crossing of the Antarctic by English explorer Sir Vivian Fuchs, four Tucker Sno-Cats were used in the 2,100 mile trek over four months that concluded in March 1958.
In the 1990s, all-rubber tracks replaced the metal cleats, allowing the cats to cruise over environmentally sensitive areas. Over time, Sno-Cat models would employ a four- or six-cylinder diesel engine with standard automotive parts. The predominate use of a sharp orange color was due to Emmett’s belief that this color best stood out against white snow if someone became lost or needed to be found. It’s been used over the past eight decades.
Depending on the need, the company produces custom vehicles that can be fitted with snow-blowers, brush cutters, and blades; models are available with ice drills, forklifts, dump trucks, and knuckle booms (a crane with a ‘knuckle’ near the middle, letting it fold back like a finger).
Most of Tucker’s snow machines are designed with two- or four-person cabs, but some models can fit as many as fifteen people (i.e., for Prudhoe Bay, Alaska) and maintain speeds up to thirty miles an hour. The Tucker-Terra model with the all rubber tracks has numerous uses in winter or summer: oil and gas exploration, search and rescue, pipeline inspection, avalanche control, mining, telecommunication operations, personnel and cargo carrying, and others.
The Tucker Sno-Cat Corporation has averaged producing and selling 100 snow machines per year (up to 120 annually), which over the past decades works to some 9,000 Sno-Cats. The products manufactured over time ranged from the two-track, 1950s Sno-Kittens to the Sno-Cat “Tour Bus” which can carry up to 15 persons in remote places.
Carrying everyone from actors to far-away film locations and maintenance crews to ice-ridden spots, Emmitt Tucker’s dream resulted in the world’s oldest and successful manufacturer of snow vehicles. It remains a family-owned business in Medford with world-wide distributors. The vintage, older models are now collector items, when he was trying decades ago to solve the tough problem of moving easily over unpacked snow. And that he did.
