Jones & Company Good News Segment: School Bus Driver Solves Pest Problem for Kids


(laughing) – [Dean] Hi, this is Dean
with Good News Pest Solutions. I have some good news and some bad news. Just kidding. It’s always good news baby! Here on 107.9 WSRZ. ♪ I need some good news baby ♪ ♪ Feels like the world’s gone crazy ♪ ♪ Give me some good news, baby ♪ ♪ Give it to me ♪ ♪ Give it to me ♪ – [Meredith] Jerry Martin is a bus driver for a Texas elementary school. And he recently went above
and beyond for the kids at a couple of bus stops on his route. His passengers were waiting
for him to pick them up, but there was a bunch of
weeds about waist-high on some of these elementary kids. – [David] Oh boy. – [Meredith] Which is itchy, they could have allergic
reactions to the grass, there’s, he calls them chigger bugs. – [David] Yes. – [Meredith} Hiding in the grass. – [David] You know who
else loves tall grass? Snakes, yes. – [Meredith] So you’ve
got these little kids either standing in the
road or having to stand way far away from the bus stop. So on his day off, Mr. Jerry Martin went and cut the grass at a
couple of his bus stops. – [David] Ooh get out of here! – [Meredith] Because these
are homes that are vacant and on the market but no
one is taking care of them. – [David] That is amazing. – [Billy] That’s so tough
to do is to get ahead. Like you can’t just bring
your lawnmower and think you’re going to roll over that. Unless it’s like industrial
grade but you gotta come out and start with a
machete or like a scythe. You gotta come out and just
start shearing the grass. – [Meredith] So when people
at the school district heard that he was doing this, to go out of the way for these kids, they met him there and
took a picture of it and put it on Facebook
to show people like: “Look how awesome this is”. And I do believe that triggered a chain of
events where now the lawns are being maintained properly. – [David] Yeah! Started it going. – [Meredith] The children
don’t have bug bites and all itchy and allergic reactions so… Jerry you are a rock star. There’s a cool little video
and picture on our blog. On WSRZ.com and speaking of bugs. How perfect is it that the
good news is brought to you by Good News Pest Solutions? It’s like the best story ever. – [David] It’s one big package. Let’s put the bow on it baby. That is your good news. ♪ I need some good news baby ♪ ♪ Give it to me ♪ ♪ Give it ♪
