Tucson HVAC Contractor Steps Up to the Plate for MS Cure Again in 2018

Tucson-based HVAC contractor D&H AC and HVAC manufacturer Daikin will donate close to $10,000 to the National MS Society for the 25th Annual Walk MS to take place in Tucson on 3/17/2018.

Tucson, United States - March 14, 2018 /PressCable/ —

Tucson, AZ – March 12, 2018 – While raising awareness for a cure for MS is the focus of the 25th Annual Walk MS organized in Tucson by the National MS Society, the donation platter stops again this year at the door of corporate donors. And just like last year, D&H Air Conditioning & Heating (www.dandhac.com) is stepping up to the plate for the cause.

For the Tucson-based HVAC contractor, the cause is not theoretical but personal: Jackie, the wife of a long-time employee, has been diagnosed with MS in 2009. Always the fighter, Jackie has been an active volunteer for the cause ever since she received news about her medical condition. But today, some 9 years into her ordeal, she is seeing her health decline, more rapidly than before.

While Jackie and her husband are looking at experimental treatments as possible alternatives to the predictable outcome of her illness, they both continue to volunteer for the National MS Society. And this year again, Randy knocked at the door of his employer on behalf of the Society.

In turn, the President of D&H AC called the Houston-based headquarters of HVAC system manufacturer Daikin. And just like in 2017, Daikin agreed to donate a complete air conditioning system to the winner of an auction organized by the National MS Society in the course of the 25th Annual Walk MS event. D&H AC will donate the value of the engineering and installation labor.

Brett Wright, President of D&H AC, stated: “Both Daikin and D&H AC hope their combined efforts will help Jackie and Randy raise close to $10,000 for the National MS Society this year. We are keenly aware that our effort is a drop in the bucket. But we also know that by joining other Tucson-based employers to set an example in the community, the research will continue to get funded and a cure will eventually be found.”

On March 17, the Daikin air conditioning system will go on the auction block. The highest bidder will receive a unit completely tailored by D&H AC for their home, and 100% of the auction proceeds will benefit the National MS Society. Just like last year, Jackie and her husband will make the 25th Annual Walk MS count to help those battling this illness. They both will be leading the ‘Jogging for Jackie’ team.

Wisconsin museum with large angel collection is closing

Sep 26, 2018

BELOIT, Wis. — A Wisconsin museum containing the world's largest collection of angels is closing. Joyce Berg, who launched The Angel Museum 20 years ago with her personal collection, says it's shutting down due to a lack of funds, membership, corporate sponsors and volunteers. Berg and her late husband, Lowell, started collecting in 1976 and she holds the record for the most angels, at 13,165. The museum contains 600 African-American angels donated by Oprah Winfrey. Berg estimates at least 180,000 people have visited the museum in Beloit, which is housed in a former church. The last day is Saturday. The...

Will Smith marks 50th birthday with a leap near Grand Canyon

Sep 26, 2018

LITTLE COLORADO RIVER GORGE, Ariz. — Like a scene out of a high-octane action movie that he would star in, Will Smith celebrated his 50th birthday Tuesday by successfully bungee jumping from a helicopter near the Grand Canyon. Cameras, which captured the stunt for a livestream on YouTube , showed the actor hooked to a harness and bungee cords dangling over a gorge in northeastern Arizona. "This is some of the most beautiful stuff I've ever seen in my life," Smith said while still swinging over the chasm. He described the experience as going "from pure terror to absolute bliss."...

Kavanaugh's 2nd accuser never sought spotlight, friends say

Sep 26, 2018

BOULDER, Colo. — Between shifts ladling hot meals at the dining hall, Deborah Ramirez did her best to fit in with the blue-blooded social set of Yale University in the 1980s. She took a chartered flight to the Bahamas sophomore year with dozens of other spring breakers and attended booze-filled parties on campus with posh private-school grads. What she says happened at one of those gatherings inside Yale's brick dormitory walls has pulled her from a life as an advocate for needy families and domestic violence survivors to the center of the battle over the shape of the Supreme Court....

India's top court limits use of gov't identification number

Sep 26, 2018

NEW DELHI — India's top court on Wednesday upheld the government's policy of issuing a 12-digit identification number to every citizen, but said it can't be made mandatory for services such as bank accounts, cellphone connections and school admissions. The Supreme Court said in a 4-1 decision that the government could use it for tax purposes and providing benefits under multimillion-dollar welfare schemes like subsidized food items and cooking gas. Prashan Bhushan, an attorney, said private organizations couldn't ask for it because of privacy concerns. The Indian government has enrolled more than 90 percent of the country's 1.3 billion people...

Blocked US grizzly hunts fuel call for changes to law

Sep 26, 2018

BILLINGS, Mont. — A court ruling that blocked grizzly bear hunts in the U.S. West carries far wider political implications amid a push by Congress for sweeping changes to how imperiled species are managed. The ruling restored protections for more than 700 grizzlies in and around Yellowstone National Park. It will likely force federal wildlife officials to reconsider their piecemeal approach to restoring bruins across the Northern Rockies. As wildlife advocates celebrated the ruling, it was quickly seized upon by Republicans as the latest example of supposed flaws in the Endangered Species Act, a 1973 law meant to shield plants...
