i am also tired of seeing the Dehne's riding around in their fancy cars and thinking they are better than everyone else. his whole family gets gas out of the bus gas tanks, and the tax payers are paying for it. some of his drivers are not the greatest and should not be hauling kids around at all!!! some of them are so rude to kids its unbelievable. i really do hope someone else comes in and takes over the bus company, someone that actually cares about the kids.

He also buys parts for his cars at Napa, charges to the bus company account and has it purchase ordered to a bus so he doesn't have to pay for them.

how can a hot rod be used as a business vehicle??? i dont think he transports kids with him. he just rides around on the tax payer dollars and enjoys not paying for anything. there is alot of things he does that people do not know. maybe he should be having to prove what he is buying parts for and how they benefit the buses. people will find out alot of things that he has gotten away with because there has been no competition for him. his daughters were also allowed to take gas out of the gas tanks also with no cost to them. how fair is that??? i thought that was only for the buses. guess not if you last name is Dehne.... i think he needs to be audited!!!

there is black people in red bud now. and they dont bother anyone. the mexicans are the ones causing problems. ralph needs to act like he cares about the kids that ride the buses. he has some drivers that dont need to be driving, and they dont care about the kids either. there has been so many incidents on the all of the buses and none of the kids get wrote up.... so i guess the kids can do whatever they want and not get in trouble???? when i rode the bus you sat in your seat or you got kicked off if you misbehaved. oh wait that is when Oliver ran the company, it was ran the right way, but now that Ralph ownes it, he could care less what goes on as long as he has his hot rods and can drive around and show them off and not have to pay a dime for them. i sure hope that illinois central comes in and takes over him. what will he do then?? he will have to support himself and not the taxpayers supporting him!!!!!

What he does with the gas and the parts or anything else he buys is his business. He probably gets what he bid for the contract and that money is his to do what he likes with it as long as he fulfills his end of the contract. The problem comes if he does not keep his equipment up to safety standards because he is diverting the money for other things like hot rods. Things like tires on the buses that have been on there too long and have excessive ware or other malfunctioning equipment. I'm not saying this is happening but I have heard of it happening but you know how rumors are.

so you dont think it is wrong for him and his family to use the gas that the tax payers pay for??? i think that is totally wrong. he should have to go to the gas station for his personal vehicles just like the rest of us. he is not special in any way!!!

This statement is correct.This is how it works and if he manages his money right there should be some left over for his living expences...What bothers me more than than if Ralph is ripping off the I.R.S. by wrighting off expences is paying the taxes we pay and the school sending kids to the streets to sell candy bars and crap just in order to get a class trip.

If the gas is in a tank on his lot, the lot that has been awarded the contract, then he bought it with HIS money. Not the tax payers.As long as his buses are not running out of gas standing kids or he can't send the buses out in the morning because he used too much or allowed his kids to use too much then he is NOT doing anything wrong morally or legally. Some of you people sound like those "occupy" fools.This is America!! If he or his family worked hard and paid off their debts he can do what ever he wants and buy what ever he wants as long as the buses are running picking up children in a safe manner then he is going his job. IDK and its really NONE of our business but I thought he inherited this business. If so he may not have the bills other bus companies have like payments on a building or shop. People in this position who are lucky enough to have been born in a hard working family can bid just under their competitors because they don't have the same overhead and expense which actually benefits the "tax payer" because they are getting the lowest price bid on the offered contract,although usually not a substantial amount.So this guys family is actually helping the community and YOU FILTHY COMMUNIST are talking trash! Ingrates!!!

Attention Imbecoles (sp?)

You use this word "communist." I'm not sure if it means what you think it means.
I don't see too many Joseph Stalin wannabes walking around.
