*From Kari Morgan of Kari’s Driving Miles:  "I am interested in putting together a December/January class for driver's ed.  I would like to do a couple of classes over Christmas break and do as much driving as possible. Teens need 30 hours for the classroom portion with only being able to do 3 hours max a day.  Driving consists of partners or triples driving in a group for 2-3 hours a day (depending on how many in a group).  Teens are only allowed to drive for one hour a day and need to observe for an hour.  Total driving consists of 6 hours.  I am wondering how many teens and parents would be interested.  We would finish the classes up in January.  I would like feedback from parents.  The cost is $325 and the location is to be determined.  Please direct questions to morgansdrivingmiles@gmail.com."
