  3. I recently saw an interview with country singer Dolly Parton about a literacy reading program called Dolly’s Imagination Library. Dolly’s goal is to send a book each month to children from birth to age five. She recently started “Goodnight with Dolly.” One night a week, she reads a story to children via YouTube. In her first episode she read the book, The Little Engine That Could. The story is about a train, filled with toys and gifts for little boys and girls, that breaks down before reaching the children. After asking several passing trains for help over a hill, a little blue train agrees to help. Even though she is small, the blue train tries her best to bring the toys to the children on the other side of the hill. As the little blue train is chugging up the hill, she bravely puffs faster and faster and repeats: “I think I can, I think I can,” and as she goes over the hill she repeats, “I knew I could, I knew I could.” The moral of the story helps children realize what optimism and hard work can accomplish. Many times, when my children said they couldn’t do something I always reminded them to think about the little engine that could. Lately, my blogs might seem like I’ve been in children’s land, but I believe many of life’s lessons can be learned from observing children. Children are very trusting and honest — sometimes embarrassingly so. I’ve talked to many towers over the last couple of days. It felt good to talk to others going through the same things I’m going through. I’ve come to the conclusion that we’re all in the same boat right now, and while we have oars to work, I’m glad we’re not yet having to use a pail. Like the little engine that could, I’m going to keep saying “I think I can, I think I can.” Together we can do this. Let’s keep pulling for each other. View the full article and more on TowTimes.com

  6. We are all facing really uncertain times – times that are going into the history books, for sure. The moral of the following story is a great one: One day a farmer’s donkey fell into a deep well. The animal cried pitifully for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do. Finally, the farmer made a decision: The animal was old, and the well needed to be filled in anyway. It just wasn’t worth trying to retrieve the donkey. He invited all his neighbors to come over and help him. They each grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well. At first, the donkey realized what was happening and cried horribly. Then, to everyone’s amazement, he quieted down. A few shovel loads later, the farmer looked into the well and was astonished at what he saw. With each shovel-full of dirt that hit its back, the donkey would shake the dirt off, and take a step up. As the farmer’s neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, he would shake it off and take a step up. Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped over the edge of the well and happily trotted away. Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt. The trick to getting out of the well is to shake it off and take a step up. Each of our troubles is a stepping-stone. We can get out of the deepest wells just by not stopping, never giving up. Shake it off, and take a step up. View the full article and more on TowTimes.com

  10. sureEcosystem has announced a partnership agreement with HAAS Alert, a collision prevention service that delivers real-time digital alerts to motorists. HAAS Alert’s mission is to prevent first responder collisions and struck-by incidents by delivering real-time safety alerts and messages to connected cars and drivers as they approach or encounter incidents. “Distracted driving continues to be a major issue on roadways as tow truck operators and other responders put their lives at risk when responding to roadside incidents,” said Jeff Holland, sureEcosystem Purchasing Program Director. “HAAS Alert provides an innovative approach of signaling connected drivers that a tow truck or emergency responder is on the roadway ahead, allowing ample time for the driver to slow down and move over.” The agreement between HAAS Alert and sureEcosystem provides benefits and opportunities for sureEcosystem members who can equip the system at a preferential rate. When tow truck operators, first responders or other HAAS Alert-equipped vehicles are transmitting digital alerts, notifications are delivered through the Waze navigation app to motorists in proximity. Digital alerts are real-time notifications delivered to navigation apps on smartphones and in-vehicle navigation systems when responders are en-route or on-scene. Alerts are intended to notify motorists in advance to allow them more time to slow down, move over and make safer decisions. View the full article and more on TowTimes.com
