DUI Dishonor Roll

Last weekend APD took five (5) impaired drivers off the road -- one of them, Carlos Saravia, age 27, now a third time offender.  Keep your fingers crossed this coming weekend, with the Blarney Blowout.  Or better yet, stay off the roads.

Civics 101:

Take a dollar bill out of your wallet. In the upper left of the front, under where it says "The United", you will find this in fine print:

"This note is legal tender for all debts, public and private."

You can't ever not accept cash if someone wishes to pay in cash, it's part of what a so-called "fiat currency" means, the government says you gotta accept it.

On a more practical note, if your mission is to provide services to children, not accepting cash is yet one more potential barrier to participation -- and it is all about the kids, isn't it?

I'm thinking particularly of situations where a third party is quite willing to quietly pay for something as long as it is anonymous. They don't want the child or the child(s) parents -- let alone the entire community -- to know who did it.

For all kinds of legitimate reasons.

And it may even be someone involved in the organization itself who -- aware of quite confidential information about the family -- is quite happy to pay out of his/her/its own pocket for a particular child -- and one can only imagine how that would be treated in Amherst were it to become known.

You gotta accept cash if someone wants to pay that way....
