For nearly 15 years, patrons have been leaving their mark on The Sand Bar in Tybee Island, Georgia, by stapling dollar bills on the walls and ceilings. Volunteers helped the owner remove $3,714 worth of bills so she could help her unemployed staff.
Before the coronavirus pandemic, Jennifer Knox would walk into her bar and soak in the sounds of people chatting while sipping on their drinks and listening to local musicians strum along on their guitars.
Now, her restaurant, The Sand Bar -- located in Tybee Island, Georgia -- is quiet, with no customers or employees in site.Like many other restaurants, The Sand Bar had to close its doors after officials put stay-at-home orders in place and mandated restaurants switch to takeout and delivery only. The restrictions, put in place to help control the spread of the virus, also left businesses -- including Knox's -- struggling financially. As she sat in her empty bar at the end of March and looked around, she realized there was an opportunity to help her now unemployed staff."We were sitting there doors locked and I'm like oh my gosh, 'there's money on the walls and we have time on our hands," she told CNN, referring to the bar's decor."'We gotta get this money down.'"Read MoreSome of the money has been there for over a decade.For nearly 15 years, patrons have been leaving their mark on the island bar by writing on a dollar bill and stapling it on the walls and ceilings. Knox just celebrated her six-year anniversary of owning the bar.Knox, who worked as a bartender at the bar for seven years before owning it, now runs the bar with her mother, Pam Hessler. "I can't just sit here and do nothing," Knox said of the decision to take down the dollar bills to try and help her employees."I'll do what I can for my people."Over the next three and a half days, five volunteers took on the tedious task to help gently take down the weathered money. Some bills had dozens of staples in them, according to Knox. Some of the currency came from countries across the globe.After the bills were taken down, it took about a week and a half to clean them off and get them counted. In total, $3,714 were collected and the stacks of bills stretched in piles across the entire bar counter top.Over a span of three days, a Tybee Island bar removed $3,714 worth of bills stapled to their walls to give to their unemployed staff. 📸Jennifer Knox of The Sand Bar pic.twitter.com/Aiz2NBCPxy

CDC updates website to remove dosage guidance on drug touted by Georgia, Florida and TrumpThe CDC changed the language used to describe the guidelines for potential -- and controversial -- coronavirus therapeutics Tuesday. The updated guidance is shorter and no longer gives dosage information, details nor studies about the drug. It's only controversial because our President supports the use of it and you losers on the left/cnn hate him so much you would rather see people die than give it a shot. OH, DOES EVERYONE KNOW - THE SQUATTER IN THE W.H. IS PROFITING OFF THIS DRUG. THIS IS ILLEGAL (BUT WITH HIM - WHAT ELSE IS NEW?) ALSO, NOW WE ARE GOING TO HAVE M O R E PEOPLE KILLING THEMSELVES ON THIS DRUG. 'but he stressed the importance of doing clinical trials alongside use of the drug.' Isn't that happening? Seems you buried the lede at the very end.
