The old gas station had been remodeled, the gas pumps had been removed, and the large sign above the small building read "OIL AND LUBE-- $10 and 10 MINUTES." For two hours, Dick observed the converted gas station from a restaurant across the street. During the next month, Dick made three trips to Los Angeles to talk to the owner, George, about how he got into the business and how the business worked. Dick paid George $1,000 for his advice and information and promised never to compete directly with George or ever to open or operate a similar type of business in the Los Angeles area. After talking to his lawyer and accountant, Dick started to organize a new business--Kwik Lube.
Staying true to this mission, city officials have provided a Planetarium, a safe rail system that runs parallel to the river and a host of park and recreational areas that stimulate commerce and encourage outdoor activities within the community. Since Kelsey is no longer agriculturally based, Baderman Island serves as an all-inclusive resort that showcases the beauty of the city year round and sustains the local economy. Kelsey has also modernized the border to the river into a well-developed downtown area that invites shopping and provides entertainment until 2 a.m. so that the city maintains its peaceful environment between the hours of midnight and 6 a.m. Kelsey council has also developed an aquifer to supply the municipal water source and that also draws water from Lake Lora. An example of how Kelsey ethically sources water is when the “level of Lake Lora drops due to increased evaporation […] or periods of drought, the city will [use] municipal water wells” (Apollo Group, Inc., 2013). All water sources are filter through a water treatment facility that ensures the water is safe for residents to
This community is located in Illinois and because of inclement weather there are several months of the year that walking outside is neither feasible nor safe. According to the American Heart Association (2011) walking as little as 30 minutes a day provides heart healthy benefits. One nursing intervention for this diagnosis would be educating the community of the importance of continued activity year round. Another nursing intervention would be providing the community with information of neighboring communities that offer indoor walking tracks for year round walking. One community health partnership that would benefit the residents of Palos Heights would be to partner with neighboring Crestwood offering the residents of Palos Heights’ access to their indoor walking arena free of charge.
It’s a philosophy built on the ideology that if police, residents, and other city municipalities work together, crime can be reduced. This philosophy was first implemented on April 29, 1993 by former police chief Charles Ramsey but only in five of Chicago’s 25 police districts. The five districts were used as a blueprint or model to test and refine the key components of the strategy and to forge better communications and perhaps participation in those five neighborhoods. Today however, all of Chicago’s districts are participating in this effort to bridge a gap between the community and the police. Shortly after implementation, or five years after, that is, the Chicago police departments successes were apparent.
