Hi everyone,

We thought you might be interested to read this news story on Charlie Nichols, who founded Nichols Bus Service Inc. in 1944 when he was just 16 years old.

What and awesome story!! It's really too bad we don't have many 16 year olds that could do something similar today. Good story!

They could if they had 1.5 million to invest to start a bus company in a small town like mine. Long as they were willing to give it all up when a large company comes along and pulls the carpet out from under them.

Here is one of my(bus)kids.

I guess my town believes in their 16 year olds. They are building them a 3 million dollar track!
