    there goes people judging again maybe you should be asking if any one has talk to her well no they have not she is not talking to any one because it is not true and she will go to court. if u knew her u would know that she loves her job and she don't drink or do drugs. she loves her job and the kids she is lucky to take to school. please stop judging people on what u read u might wont to go to the horse mouth so to speak.

    why is it that people like this get off with 5 years but people like me that let some one live with thim.That the person that lives with yougets a drug charge.You get the same charge to. And get 25 years in the pen or 5 year probation.when you didn't know what was going on.Or what that person was doing.

    How about the supervisor over the drivers say hello to all in the morning and again after they return, if someone is intoxicated or on drugs we might notice this before these things happen. I can’t believe these people do this and drive a bus. How about putting some face time in with these drivers on a daily basis and deter some of these actions?
