Bart and Big A

Just got done hosting my KNCO Insight talk show.  We talked about a great program that the Roamin’ Angels have put together to make our teenage drivers safer.  It’s called “Survive the Drive”, and it involves the CHP, Impact Teen Drivers, and Bill McAnally Racing.  All great stuff that you can check out either on our show podcast, or online at Roaminangels.com/survive_the_drive   A couple of things came up during the show.  One was Bart Riebe, who has stepped up to help put on this Saturday’s Grass Valley Car Show after a sponsor pulled out.  No fan fare…Bart just steps up to make it happen.  And then the “survive the drive” tuition cost of $49 per student will be refunded upon the completion of the course due to the generosity of Big A in Grass Valley, who just want our teens to be as safe as possible on the road.  Make plans to dine at Big A Drive In on Wednesday, May 24th when classic cars will be there, and half the proceeds from the day will go towards the Survive The Drive program.  I know we say it a lot, but we cannot say it too often…when you support local businesses, like Riebe’s  and Big A, you support so much more.
