Nice Job by Quincy's on State Street

Nice Job by Quincy's on State Street

By Kath T.

Today my heart is happy yet again by another Media store, Quincey's. Stores like these are challenging for my son, but he was in search for "the perfect gift for Mom." Braeden went into the store to browse and quickly became distracted & frustrated. To my surprise, he saw one of the store employees and said "excuse me ma'm, can you help me find a gift for my mom, it's a surprise for her birthday." If the tears weren't already wallowing in my eyes, in the next moments to follow they would. The employee- who I now know as Sherry, helped my son find the perfect gift- together they gift wrapped it and Braeden paid with a smile. Everything came full circle when we sat at bittersweet kitchen to open my perfect gift! Months ago BSK did the exact same thing that Quincey's did today. Most would call this, 'a small act of kindness', but the impact it's has on my son with autism- makes it anything but small and gave me a heart-full of hope.

MeterUp for Media's parking issues? Media's politicians would have to understand technology first.

I'm not sure how many times Media's politicians are going to switch out the parking meters on State Street, but after four years of me advocating smart kiosks, they still don't get it. Whether it's adding solar parking meters that didn't receive enough sun, or allowing payment by credit card that never really worked; they're attempting yet another swap out.  I think it's the third attempt in so many years. It's hard to gauge just how much this has cost taxpayers, let alone the inconvenience of it all.
