Kibble to Feed Your Insatiable Appetite

We know you’re hungry, so we want to send some news snacks your way – and you don’t even have to behave to get rewarded!

Disabled people want full access for service dogs
The incidents are illegal and violate the rights of disabled people. Two Bakersfield, California women who are legally blind asked Eyewitness News for help after they were recently denied access to local businesses.

Get the popcorn! In case you missed the movie Music Within when it was in theaters, you’ll be happy to know that the DVD has just been released. The film is a biography of Richard Pimentel who was instrumental in the 1970's disability rights movement that culminated in passage of the Americans With Disabilities Act (http://www.musicwithindvd.com/). The Extended Version Facilitator Guide includes step-by-step instructions to facilitate group discussions about the film and the ADA for businesses, rehabilitation professionals, educators, parents and religious organizations. The extended version is available at: http://www.miltwright.com/
