Time to Move the Bus Stop Back to a Safer Location @ Southridge Mall

There comes a point in time when something looks good on paper, but in reality it is a terrible idea and it comes time to re-evaluate that original decision.

Take Simon Properties decision to move a bus stop that dropped you off on the curb, near an entrance to Southridge Mall, 1000 feet and through the parking lot to get to the stores.  It is time to realize this is a terrible idea and it is time to allow the buses to return to dropping off employees and shoppers where it is convenient for them, isn’t that what most of the merchants are preaching to their employees, customer service? In this case, it doesn’t seem like Simon Properties cares about those people who ride the bus.

All Accessible Playground in St. Francis

I talk often about the importance of an inclusive community.  Here is the story of Logan and his family working to bring an all accessible playground to St Francis.  To keep up to date on the project, I would suggest liking the St. Francis All Abilities Playground Facebook page.

I had the pleasure of meeting Logan’s mother, Jocelyn, last year at Disability Advocacy Day in Madison.  I had the honor meeting Logan last summer during the Cudahy St Francis Little Baseball Association season as Logan participated in the Challenger Division.  I am always willing to assist a family looking to improve the lives of individuals with disabilities, probably even more so when it is in our local community.
