Thank you, Jay Zollar. Your comments tonight, as always, are right on. United we DO stand! This too, shall pass.
I don't know how many watched the 5 pm news tonight, but the sports announcer needs to be tarred and feathered for such negative comments about the Milwaukee Brewers. When Michelle Melby said were going to need some runs, he said that's not going to happen. What team is he routing for?
I was curious about the carpet-bombing ad campaign run by the No Better Friend Corporation, here's a quick outline of what I've found:
This Friday, October 15th, is White Cane Awareness Day. For blind people the white cane is an essential tool that gives us the independence and ability to move safely and freely from place to place. White Cane Awareness Day allows us to emphasize the critical role this tool plays in living the lives we want and informing the public about its true significance. It also promotes awareness of the White Cane Law, which states that a driver must stop ten feet from anyone carrying a white cane or using a guide dog. This message is brought to you by the Brown County chapter of the National Federation of the Blind of Wisconsin.
