KUNR became aware of certain issues regarding the company's business practices after this story originally aired.

This post was not meant to be an endorsement of the company in any way. It was meant as a profile of what seemed to be an interesting business -- similar to other profiles KUNR has aired as part of its collaboration with the Northern Nevada Business View. KUNR will be working in the coming days on a follow-up piece.
