Cerebral Palsy Seeks to Raise Money for Special Needs Children
10-year-old Entrepreneur Keith Boyd with his mentor Thrive15 CEO Clay Clark
Ten-year-old Keith Boyd, CEO of Keiths Ice Cold Lemonade Stand, is teaming up with entrepreneurship education resource Thrive15 and several local businesses to make lemonade out of lemons. Boyd, who was born with nonverbal cerebral palsy and is unable to use his arms, legs or mouth, set out to raise $ 250,000 for The Little Light House, a Tulsa-based development center for children with special needs. The Little Light House gifted him with the technology that allows him to now verbally communicate. The Tobii EyeMobile is a tool that allows Boyd to communicate by using his eyes to type what he wants to say on a screen, which is then verbalized by the tool. In response to this gift, Boyd crafted a business plan to set up lemonade stands around Tulsa for the summer, the proceeds of which would benefit The Little Light House.
“My goal is to raise money for The Little Light House where I went to school until I was six. They have done so much for me; I want to give back so other kids can go to that school without paying any money,” said Keith Boyd.
Recognizing Boyds entrepreneurial spirit, local franchised Chick-fil-A Operator and Thrive15 mentor Arthur Greeno reached out to Keiths parents to ask how he could make the lemonade stands become a reality. Greeno enlisted the help of other Thrive15 mentors, who helped create a website for the lemonade stands and to secure local sponsors and media partners for the initiative. Additionally, Greeno secured donations of lemons and tea for the stands.
I knew I had to meet Keith when I heard his story, said Greeno. I was so inspired when he shared his business plan with me that he had written with his eyes. Many people dream big, but to take action is very admirable.
Thrive15 was honored to provide Keith the tools he needs to succeed in business, says Thrive15 CEO Clay Clark. Keith reminds us that it doesnt matter what your circumstances are, you can thrive if you are diligent.
Keiths Ice Cold Lemonade Stands will launch on Wednesday, June 18 at ten Tulsa area business locations and will be open every Wednesday from June 18 through August 20 between the hours of 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. For donation of any amount, guests will receive a cup of either Chick-fil-A Lemonade or Chick-fil-A Sweet Tea. For donations of $ 100 or more, guests will receive a reusable Chick-fil-A cup that they can take to any Tulsa-area Chick-fil-A restaurant through August 20 for unlimited beverage refills.
Participating sponsors of Keiths Ice Cold Lemonade Stand include: Thrive15.com, Tulsa-area Chick-fil-A restaurants, Bob Hurley Ford, Lawn America, KOKI Fox 23, The Apothecary Shoppe, The Vintage Pearl, The Journey Training, M&M Lumber Co., Sunkist, Tetley, TetleyHarris Food Group, Lamar Advertising Group, American Waste Control, Halo Branded Solutions, Domino Foods, Bryan Smith State Farm Agency, E-Z Up, Red Dog Construction and Healthy Living Games.

Hester A Guide Dog Puppy’s Tale
Before you finally decide to train your dog with a Prong collar, you have to do a careful research to determine whether or not it is proper to use to your dog.
A Prong collar is made of interlocking metal links. Each of these links has two prongs that stick out inwards. So when the collar is placed over your dog’s head, the prongs sit against its neck. Prong collar training works like this: When the dog performs a bad behavior, the trainer tugs on the leash, as a result the prong collar tightens and pinches the dog’s flesh.
The use of such collar for training is in fact a controversial subject in many animal welfare organizations’ debates. However, prong collar was basically designed only for dogs who failed to respond to other training methods.
Many dog owners are mistaken in the use and fitting of Prong collars. It is very important in such collar training that the owner perfectly understands how to use the collar.
– This kind of collars should never be left on your dog all the time. Such training tool must be put on and taken off before and after training sessions.
– A comfortable fit is required. Try to remove some links so that the collar fits snugly.
– Positioning of the collar is important. Place it right behind the ears and up under the jaw and NOT down at the shoulders of your dog.
– Attach the leash to the dead-ring for normal to average training. This will allow the collar to remain the same size during training while providing less force.
– Allow your dog to become comfortable with the collar. Place it about 20 minutes before training and remove it about 20 minutes after the training as well.
If you are considering purchasing this training tool, take extra effort to learn its correct use. Also, prong collars are not supposed to be permanent collars. Never use this type of collar all the time as your dog might develop a tolerance and you’ll effectively eliminate any training value of the collar. On regular days, just use an ordinary collar. Do not leave the collar on your dog when you are not training.
Walking a Clients Dog in the Uptown Area of Dallas
Vintage $ 1000 Bill
Sheila Hornsby has worked in the Uptown area of Dallas for Park Cities Pet Sitter for nearly five years. Many of the pets she cares for reside in the high rises that dot the Oak Lawn, Turtle Creek, and McKinney Avenue streets. On the evening of Monday, July 28th, she was taking a dog from the 1900 McKinney Avenue building outside for a walk, cutting through the parking garage in the back of the building to get outside. Ms. Hornsby noticed something on the ground at the edge of the parking garage where she was walking, and initially stepped over it. As she glanced back at the item on the ground, she looked more closely and saw that what she stepped over looked like a $ 1000 bill, enclosed in a plastic sleeve. Ms. Hornsby picked up the plastic sleeve and examined it, feeling pretty certain it had to be a fake since she had never heard of a $ 1000 bill being circulated. She put the item in her back pocket with the intention of doing a little bit more investigation about it later that evening.
When Ms. Hornsby arrived home, she looked online to see if a $ 1000 bill had ever been issued by the federal government. She found that, indeed, there was. She learned that the U.S. government had last issued the $ 1000 bill back in 1945. Ms. Hornsby then took a photograph of her find and sent it to her mother, who had worked in a bank for 26 years, to see if her mother could determine if it was authentic. After her mother looked at the photo, she told Sheila that it was likely a real $ 1000 bill.
Once Ms. Hornsby realized that she had found an incredibly valuable, vintage $ 1000 bill, she said that her first thoughts were about how she would locate its rightful owner(s). I know many people probably think that I legitimately found the $ 1000 bill, so I should keep it. But I know that if I ever lost something of great value that I would hope whoever found it would be kind enough to try to locate me. So my instinct was not to keep it; instead I immediately felt this huge responsibility to find the person who had lost it.
Ms. Hornsby searched the internet to determine what options she might have to find the owner of the $ 1000 bill. Contacting the police, posting in Lost & Found areas of community websites, and posting flyers around the neighborhood where the item was found were all things she considered. After sleeping on it, she decided to first create a brief flyer and give it to the concierges at the 1900 McKinney Ave building. The flyer said, FOUND POSSIBLE COLLECTIBLE ITEM. Found near building while walking dog on Monday night, 7/28/14. If someone is missing a collectible item, please have them call me and describe it, in order to ensure that it is returned to the rightful owner. Thank you, Sheila.
On the morning of Tuesday, July 29th, Ms. Hornsby went to the 1900 McKinney building and spoke to Concierge Susan Gutierrez. Ms. Hornsby told Ms. Gutierrez that she had found a collectible item the previous evening, and wondered if anyone had reported the loss of any valuable items in the last 24 hours? Ms. Gutierrez told her that, yes, in fact a resident of the building had reported losing a vintage $ 1000 bill, and had contacted the buildings management about the loss on the off-chance that the item was turned in. Realizing that the owner of the lost $ 1000 bill had been located, Sheila made arrangements to meet the owner later that evening when she could come back with the item.
On the evening of Tuesday, July 29th, Ms. Hornsby met the rightful owner of the vintage $ 1000 bill in the lobby of the high rise building, with a number of concierges and passersby in attendance. When she returned the bill in its sleeve to the resident who had lost it, she was overwhelmed by the positive response of its owner and of those witnessing its return. It was so gratifying to see how surprised, thankful and happy the owner of the bill was to have it returned, said Ms. Hornsby. He kept saying how upset he had been at himself that he had lost the sleeve with the bill, and was certain no one would ever turn it in upon finding it. I really felt like I restored some of his faith in humanity by doing the right thing and returning what I had found. The people that were in the lobby that night when I returned the bill said it really inspired them to want to do similar good deeds, because doing so clearly created a lot of happiness. I did not realize how simply doing the right thing could be so inspiring.
Park Cities Pet Sitters President, Joette White, learned about Ms. Hornsbys find and her attempts to locate the owner of the valuable item from the sitter herself. Ms. White said that upon hearing Sheilas story she simply felt a lot of pride in her sitter and in her company. My business is built on the credibility and trust of my staff. We ask our clients to entrust us with the care of their beloved pets, and are given access to peoples homes when they are away. Having dependable, honest and trustworthy staff is a requirement for what we do. But it is also part of our company mission to be thoughtful to the people around you and think how you can impact them in a positive way, said Ms. White. The actions that Sheila took to do the right thing, of her own volition, is exactly what I would want her or any of my staff to do in that type of scenario. I cannot help but feel proud and inspired by the thoughtful actions of one of my staff.
