Doing Good with Their Tips

We often record our broadcast interviews from Grounds for Celebration in Windsor Heights. We love the atmosphere of a live setting. This week when we were in for a segment waitress Judy Babb asked me about being on the broadcast and asked what it was we covered. When I said it was about business she said, "Darn, we were hoping you might say something about our charity work". We were interested. Meet Judy who, with fellow employee Holly McIlroy, pick a day each month (July 16th this month) and donate 100% of their tips to a charity. This month it is Unbreakabull Bullies of Urbandale.

Emergency Medical Services (EMS) - Who Pays?

Recently we were at the Iowa State Capital and ran into a group of EMS providers who were ther lobbying for...funding. We met Mark McCullough the president of the Iowa Emergency Medical Services Association who shared with us the harrowing tale of funding, or lack of funding. Many of us think Emergency Medical Services are part of the local fire department...not so. Couple that with inadequate funding, wrestling with insurance companies, Medicaid reimbursement levels and an aging corps of workers...we've got issues. Here is that story.
