Daily Rant&Rave: Lunch for kids

RAVE To all the local food banks and countless volunteers who have provided free lunch to children at area parks this summer, not only helping kids who might have gone without meals in summer months, but encouraging them to be active and explore our wonderful parks, hurray!

RANT To the Big Bank that denied our attempts to get cash on a recent family trip to Spain after we’d put travel notices on our debit cards and the Travel VISA Credit Card. Travel card, get it? We were denied two more times after calling you, leaving us unsure if we’d have access to cash. Sure you need to be careful, but after all, it’s our money.
