 Anti-Discrimination policies

Anti-Discrimination Policy for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

We work to create an environment that is non-discriminatory, inclusive and promotes equity and diversity among those we serve and for whom we advocate. We pledge to be open to discussions with strategic partners to eliminate racism and other forms of discrimination where it might exist in our service area and within our organization, understanding that it is a process of both education and movement. 

With regard to employment: It is the policy of this corporation to employ the best qualified applicants available to fill staff vacancies. Gender, race, color, national origin or ancestry, age religion, political affiliation, physical or mental handicap, sexual orientation and marital status should not be considered cause for rejection or approval of an applicant. This includes termination, promotion, disciplinary action, benefits, pay or any other employment practices. The M.O.T. Senior Center adheres to equal opportunity principals and discrimination will not be tolerated. 

Service population: This policy is extended to non-discrimination for the people we serve. This policy extends to membership at the center and therefore, no senior will be discriminated against as they require services. 

Our board of directors: We intend to be reflective of the people we serve within the scope of our by-laws (must live in or work in the M.O.T. area) and have those on our board advocate for the entire population we serve and mange the manner in which we serve them. Again, we strive to fill vacancies on the board as they arise with skill sets needed to enhance the overall implementation of the business of the center.

My Two Cents

June 13, 2024

9:00 a. m. - 2:00 p. m.


Recently I received another flyer for a "bargain"! A "2015 $100 High relief American Gold Liberty Proof" coin. Well first technically it is NOT a coin(it carries no true face value).Now the sales pitch DOES say copy, but the company name, WILL confuse many people into thinking this is a United States Mint product (it is NOT). Also, the description says layered in 24k gold. Well layering is plating, which can wear off, just like a gold plated ring or watch. And the coating is so thin, that it carries NO gold value on the secondary market. So at a regular price of $99.995 (discounted) to JUST $19.95(!) a bargain....nope I buy these for $5 usually and GLAD to sell at $10.. So BUYERS Beware and please do your research or call me.

The world's narrowest street is only a foot wide.

The world's narrowest street is only a foot wide.

If you suffer from claustrophobia, you might want to avoid the world’s narrowest street. Spreuerhofstrasse — located in Reutlingen, Germany — measures 1 foot, 0.2 inches at its tightest, and a meager 1 foot, 7.68 inches at its widest, at least when last evaluated for Guinness World Records in 2006. The 65-foot-long street is also limited vertically; those over 5 feet, 10 inches have to duck at the exit, and many who pass through are pelted with drips from overhead gutters. Despite those inconveniences, tourists flock to the record-holding passageway. 

Sandwiched between two buildings in Reutlingen’s oldest area, Spreuerhofstrasse was initially created not as a tourist attraction, but by a 300-year-old construction faux pas. In 1726, much of the city was destroyed by a fire, and residents rebuilding the area disregarded regulations for wider spaces between buildings that were meant to prevent future devastating blazes. For its first 100 years, Spreuerhofstrasse’s status as a street was debatable, but local lore suggests that in 1820 it received its official designation as a municipal street thanks to a slender town official who could easily squeeze down the alleyway. 

However, no one is sure how long Spreuerhofstrasse will be able to hold on to its record. Within the last decade, area officials have become concerned about the adjacent buildings, as their walls slowly close in on the street’s space. If Spreuerhofstrasse becomes too narrow to pass — or widens, in the case of demolitions — the street would lose its world record, possibly to another competing lane, like England’s 14th-century Parliament Street, which measures just 25 inches wide.
