Sticker shock -- we all face it at one time or another. Whether it's the cost of a home, an automobile or even a stay in the hospital, it's easy to be taken aback by the prices we pay.

Reader: ‘Thank a bus driver’

School is out for the summer and students and teachers are enjoying a well-deserved vacation. The students have enjoyed another safe and successful year of school. There are many people responsible for this who deserve our thanks. These include parents, grandparents, teachers, administrators, school crossing guards and bus drivers among others. The one group which probably deserves the most credit for our students' safety, but seldom receive it, is our bus drivers.
