A suggestion to our county school officials and others for saving money. Stop the door to door pickup of students going off to school and coming home.
I sometimes watch a bus stop four times on the same street two houses apart. Assign stops within a block of the students home and let the safety of the students be placed where it belongs, the parents.
Surely this will save thousands of dollars in fuel cost by taking away the limo service and making it once again a bus ride to school. I have also wondered why the students are not required to pay for a bus pass, we have no problems buying them four-wheelers and cell phone, how would a $10 per month bus pass affect their budget? Kids in the city don’t have school buses they ride the city buses and pay for a bus pass. If the parents don’t have the money, they can always drop the weekly visit to the nail parlor and tat parlor to provide transportation for their children to get to school.
Why does the Medicaid system pay for babies to be born to under-age children? Why cant it be for 18 and older? Trust me this would cut out a lot of 14 and 17 year olds from having babies. In these trying economic times we all have to make sacrifices. Lets begin with saving wasted money in our county.
