They ♦ expect the bus driver to pick their kids up at their door, and sometimes we have to sit and wait while they finish dressing them. We tie shoelaces, button buttons, zip up zippers and wipe noses. We also have to keep them from getting hurt when they won't stay seated. We never get any thanks for get ting the kids to school and home safely, yet we get all kinds of complaints if, for some reason, we are a few minutes late — and even if we are running a few minutes early. Abby, I read in your column once that “the poor schoolteachers” get trinkets and coffee mugs and lots of stuff they don’t know what to do with every Christmas. But drivers never get anything (not even respect). Keeping the kids quiet is a full-time job, but the biggest job is breaking up fights and making sure nobody gets hurt or loses anything on the bus. It’s an awesome responsibility. Every parent should drive a school bus for three days; then they would know what we drivers have to go through. Please print this, Abby, but don’t tell where it came from. GETS NO RESPECT DEAR GETS NO RESPECT: Move over, Rodney Dangerfield, and make room for our unsung heroes and heroines—the school bus drivers. Parents, circle Thanksgiving on your calendars, and add this memo: “Remember the school bus driver at Christmastime with an appropriate gift for hauling our most precious cargo, our children.” Suggestions: brass knuckles, bulletproof vest, nose guard, knee guards, shin guards, teeth guards. Only kidding; pick up a good book on self-defense. Mott teen agers* do not know the facta about drug*. AIDS and how to prevent unwanted pregnancy.

What do you see on the Horizon for New Braunfels as we get closer & closer to the year 2000? £ £ While we don’t hear much these days about the Austin/San Antonio ’’corridor”, I personally believe that by the year 2000 it will be a fact of life. The Comal County economy, with its balance of tourism, Industry, retail, and service businesses, is an Ideal mix for stability and growth. Couple that with exceptional systems and progressive civic and governmental leadership, and we are definitely ready for the next millenium.
