The only this I would change is the education about the long white cane... Jazzy doesn't use a long cane, hers is foldable and not long. It seems that her O&M teachers did not learn this method... none of the kids in our area use the long white cane, that I am aware of.

Sally, you were correct. The Coffee Culture is on the corner of Beca & Kings!
