The “Cool Car Co.” was accepting checks or debit cards last week, as was the “Want it ALL Mall”.

Bill. Credit card interest. Childcare. Law Service, Groceries. TV service. Power.

The list of real adulting things just never ends, as Escambia County 4-H members learned last week during the “Living On My Own Simulation” in Cantonment.

4-H members learned about the dollars and cents, and sense, of the adult world of household finance.

    Whoever thought of holding a class that allows students to help prepare for the future should be in charge of our educational system! I’m somewhat joking, but all kids need to know this before graduation. As my son says, he’s glad that he learned how to fund the square root of 3, instead of learning how to do taxes, cause that’s more important (sarcasm).
