Susan 2 years, 5 months ago on Lawrenceville subdivision mourns longtime bus driver

A friend who trained bus drivers said she told them that you are the first person a child sees each morning and you set their mood for the rest of the day. I don't think Miss Sue ever had to be taught that. It came naturally to her and I know she 's made an impression on "her kids" not just for the rest of each day, but for the rest of their lives.

All the judges were grandmas and former den mothers who later told me they knew the minute they walked in which scouts played by the rules!

Susan 2 years, 6 months ago on Boy lauded for honesty in returning iPad

Having left an iPad in a shoestore that sells only geriatric shoes, I was surprised no one turned it in to the store owner. How commendable that Mr. Ayala (Note that I refer to him as an adult) did the right thing. I only hope that whoever took my iPad found it totally useless after the battery wore down.
