It wasn’t all bad
▪ A Wisconsin elementary-school bus driver has made her young passengers smile by crocheting a toy for every kid on her route. Trudy Serres, 43, began her special project when one student dared her to create a stuffed taco, his favorite food. Since then, she’s branched out into Star Wars characters, ice cream cones, unicorns, and more. The kids take the toys everywhere they go, and see Serres as “their second mom,” said one parent. “I am so grateful she is going to be our bus driver next year.”
▪ A Texas restaurant worker has a hot new set of wheels, thanks to the kindness of strangers. Justin Korva, 20, was walking the 3 miles to his job in Rockwall when local man Andy Mitchell, 40, pulled over to give him a ride. Moved by Korva’s work ethic, Mitchell posted about himd outside the restaurant.
▪ Florida beachgoers formed an 80-person human chain to rescue a family from a dangerous riptide this week. Roberta Ursrey was paddling in the waters off Panama City Beach when she heard the screams of her sons, who had been pulled too far from the shore. Ursrey and otherey. “These people were God’s angels.” ■
