Here In My Car
October 23, 2013
I've been car shopping recently. This is a road I've been down before and it's never a smooth ride. Car dealerships will advertise the cheapest price possible, but once they get you on their lot the game changes. I have researched my vehicle choices and read probably too many articles on how to buy a car. I know to determine the price of the car before even discussing a trade-in, and that most warranties are for the power trail only. No matter how prepared I feel, I still feel very vulnerable when I'm dealing with the salesperson that truly has his part down. I've also purchased enough cars to recognize a few standard lines like; "I'm only making $500 above what the car costs me, really", "that's the final price, really" and "what color do you want." The color of the vehicle comes up way to soon for me, they always ask this question. It is the oldest approach in the book. In fact, I have always felt this to be a female stock question, almost discriminatory, but I digress. No one should be talked down to; remember to meet her where she is when your on the air. Think about the time of day you are on and what she could really be doing. And if she's car shopping, go along with her for the test drive. Your station should be the first pre-set anyway.

Our nation has about 3 million public school teachers. Most have a masters degree and 10 years' experience. Three-quarters of them participate in continuing their education. They spend approximately 50 hours a week on teaching and non-
compensated duties like bus duty and after-school clubs. Average class size for elementary school is 21 children; there are about 28 per class in higher
grades. They spend an average of $440 of their own money for classroom supplies. Average starting pay for teachers is $31,704, with extra duties such as coaching bringing in more. The number of teachers leaving this profession is increasing due
to low salaries and working conditions. By 2014 this nation will need 3.9 million teachers due to retirement and the growing student population. Encourage a teacher today; make sure they know they make a difference! (Source: National Education Association)
