Sidney Sweeper & Vacuum stocks a variety of bags and belts, but it's not a clothing store. Instead of accessorizing outfits, staff members focus their efforts on repairing, maintaining, and selling vacuum cleaners. Technicians trained in the electronics-refurbishing arts revive broken units from a number of brands, including Oreck and Electrolux.
Interstate All Battery Center leads the charge in power outposts, providing lifelong Texans and reserve-power road trippers with brand-new batteries for their trucks, cell phones, computers, and more. With a vast storehouse of more than 16,000 products, Interstate carries batteries for nearly every brand of laptop and PC, as well as a bevy of automotive batteries to restore sedans, coupes, and station wagons after a long night of headlight staring contests. Household powerables are also available, including 24-packs of Energizer AAs for bulk buyers, an Energizer 9V alkaline battery for metronomes possessed by surprisingly funky eighth notes, and one case of Lite Brite fuel, distilled from corn syrup and Olympic silver medals. Old used batteries find comfy retirement at Interstate’s recycling center, allowing their former owners and well-meaning grandchildren to rest easy.
Open Door Mission is a Gospel Rescue Mission that traces its roots back to 1954, when an influx of railroad workers contributed to a stark, sudden rise in homelessness in Omaha. Pastor Jerry Dunn opened the original Open Door Mission on 13th and Douglas Streets to provide food and shelter for the workers. In the ensuing decades, the mission has grown into a multifaceted support system for those in the cycle of homelessness, providing food and shelter, personal and professional development programs, permanent housing, and outreach for women and families.
With a 12-year basketball career spent in the NBA minor league and FIBA Europe, BeReady director Ben Ebong believes the academy's vision is bigger than basketball alone. The game has had a profound influence on his life. It’s taught him to be a leader, face challenges, deal with disappointment, and become a valuable member of a team. These are the same principles he instills in the players at each youth basketball camp. With the help of experienced coaches and professional speakers, the academy's program aims to build character in addition to athletic training. While learning fundamental basketball skills, students will begin to understand the discipline needed to compete at a high level and appreciate the importance of an active lifestyle. Much like team mascots who preemptively glue their heads on before doing backflips, they’ll learn to set goals and draw up plans of action for achieving them.
