    WHOA HERE! You have a million to give back to consumers but you have tocut the school systems? Long term pay back says to put the money into a well managed (which we also need to improve to) school system.

    Tax money tossed in a hole without merit and maintaining inflated prices on the goods. Nice. Just what we need.
