Envision – a Wichita-based organization that focuses on employment and rehabilitation for the blind – will participate in a nationwide study on how well those with sight issues can use paper currency, according to a news release.
The study will help determine if there is a need to change U.S. paper money, according to the release.
The concern is that those with sight issues cannot distinguish between different denominations, and the goal is to provide ways to make it easier for those who are blind to identify different denominations, according to the release.
When Emporian Toni Akins Martin sees an advertisement against driving drunk, personal experience tells her there is more to the issue than that simple advice.
“What I hope is that people will think twice about getting in a car with a drunk. I don’t care if it’s a friend or if it’s your parents that are drunk, don’t get in the car with a drunk,” said Martin, who has been paralyzed more than 30 years as a result of riding with a friend who had been drinking.
“It could be a consequence that will affect you the rest of your life. Think about the domino effect. Not just your life, but other people’s,” she said. “You don’t think about that at 14. All you want to do is go party.”
Tim’s Place – Its Beginnings
As entrepreneurs, the Harris family was looking for a way for Tim to succeed – just like his brothers.
During high school, Tim worked as a host at a Red Robin restaurant in Albuquerque. During this time, Tim learned a lot about welcoming guests at a restaurant and developed a loyal following of customers.
After observing the effect Tim had on Red Robin restaurant and its customers, an idea emerged regarding Tim owning his own restaurant. In May of 2010, a lease was signed for a facility in Albuquerque and a construction company was hired for tenant improvements. In June of 2010, Mr. Daniel Meeker joined the staff of Tim’s Place as General Manager.
