The Make-A-Wish Foundation of Alaska and Washington made a 12-year-old boy’s dream come true recently, and this particular dream involved espionage. This young man’s name is Colby, but he prefers to be called Agent C to protect his identity. Agent C struggles with spinal muscular atrophy, a general muscle weakness that prevents him from enjoying many of the activities that other kids his age take for granted. However, that does not prevent him from sharpening his sleuthing skills, and Make-A-Wish granted his wish to be a secret agent with an adventure that took two days to solve.
Agent C lives in the Seattle area and was shocked to learn that someone had stolen Blitz, the mascot of his beloved Seattle Seahawks. In order to help him solve this heinous crime, the Foundation arranged a Hummer limousine for him to use while he acted on clues. He also received his own tuxedo complete with spy gear, visited the Seattle Crime Lab and enjoyed dinner atop the Space Needle.
Agent C knew that he would need to enlist the help of others in his mission, so he called in his partner, Agent Dad. Together, they followed a lead to the School of Acrobatics and New Circus Arts, where they found a piece of folded paper that seemed suspicious. They followed the lead to a Starbucks, where they discovered mysterious messages scrawled on the inside of their beverage cups. This led them to a crime scene, where they found zip ties and duct tape with blue and green feathers stuck to it. They found additional clues that suggested they needed to head to the waterfront. Since time was short and secret agents have extraordinary resources at their disposal, they found a nearby helicopter, which flew them toward Puget Sound. En route to their destination, they spotted a boat carrying Blitz and his captors. Through careful maneuvering, they were able to force the boat ashore, where they incapacitated bad guy Rex Velvet with silly string and released Blitz and another secret agent named Agent R.

A Washington D.C.-area woman who suffers the worst daily commute in the area (according to a local television station) was awarded a limousine ride in WTOP’s inaugural Commuter Idle contest. Brenda Wells, who lives in Sparrows Point, Md., with her three children, won the limo ride recently and was spared at least one day of what appears to be a very grueling daily commute. In addition to the limo ride, she won $1,000 cash to help pay for gas. By all accounts, she’ll need it, as her commute involves a car as well as train and bus rides to get to and from work each day.
Five days each week, she leaves her home very early in the morning and drives to Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport to catch the train, paying $3 in tolls each way. Then she hops on the 4:48 a.m. MARC (Maryland Transit Administration) train into Union Station in the District of Columbia, where she waits ten minutes or so for the Metro train. She takes this train to a stop where she switches to another train, which takes her to a bus, which then transports her to her office. If everything is running on time, she endures a five-hour commute round trip five days a week. She was understandably very happy to hear that she had won the limo ride.
"I woke up with a lot more excitement," she said as she stepped out of the limo with nine-year-old Daniel, seven-year-old Sophia and three-year-old Anna.
"The peace of mind was the best thing [about the limo ride.] I didn’t have to worry about what my next thing was. I didn’t have to worry about ‘I’m going to miss my bus, I’m going to miss my connecting piece.’"
Many Bay Area commuters deal with similarly brutal commutes every day. If you know someone who could use a break from the daily grind and deserves a special treat, rent a San Francisco limousine ride and give a gift they will never forget! Renting a Bay Area limo or other type of luxury transportation is more affordable than you may think it is, and it’s certain to put a big smile on the face of the lucky recipient. Who knows? Maybe that recipient is you! For more information on limo rates, availability and other information, call us at NLS Limo today at 800-339-8936.
A party bus chauffeur in Issaquah, WA is facing charges in connection with an incident where she purchased alcohol for underage patrons riding in her bus. The 49-year-old chauffeur, who works for an area limousine service, is facing charges in Issaquah Municipal Court for reckless endangerment and purchasing alcohol for minors. Both charges are gross misdemeanors, and, if convicted, the chauffeur could spend up to a year in prison and pay a fine up to $5,000. The owner of the party bus company that employs the woman called the violation of company rules an “isolated incident” and ensured police and parents that the woman has been terminated.
School administrators suspended nine of the Issaquah High School students on the party bus for alcohol-related infractions in connection with this incident. Administrators launched their investigation after the students arrived intoxicated for an October 22 homecoming dance.
The owner of the party bus company issued a statement after the incident was published in a local newspaper. He said, “We do not provide alcohol in any way, shape or form. We can’t even take it from their house or their apartment to the bus. They bring it to the limo or whatever, we can’t touch it. Our company policy is that we cannot touch it.”
He said that it is not uncommon for underage guests to ask chauffeurs to purchase alcohol for them to enjoy while riding on the party bus, but he said his company has strict policies against it. “This is totally against all of our policies and most other party bus companies,” he said. “It’s not tolerated and it’s an isolated incident that’s going to be dealt with accordingly. Buying alcohol is absolutely no. That is for anybody.”
That statement pretty much sums up our position on buying alcohol for minors as well. We don’t do it under any circumstances. Ever. We want our underage guests to have a great time when they rent our San Francisco party buses and limos for proms, homecomings, concerts and other special events, but we will not allow them to drink alcohol or use any other illegal substances while under our care. Their safety is too important to us. It’s that simple. If you are underage and need a Bay Area limousine or party bus for an upcoming event or you’re a parent looking for an ethical limo service to transport your kids, you can rely on NLS Limo to get your loved ones to and from their destination in safety and comfort. For more information about our alcohol policy for minors and to reserve a limo or party bus for an upcoming event, please call us today at 1-800-339-8936.
