Five Questions with Luretha Tutt
School bus driver

Name: Luretha Tutt

Work: School bus driver for the McDuffie County School system for 13 years.

Family: Married to husband, Jesse, for 23 years, two daughters and two sons.

What do you enjoy doing every day?

"There was no summer school this year, so I didn't have to work. I went to a Braves game, and I'd like to go again. During the school year, I just wash and cook and stuff like that, waiting for the time to go back on the bus again."

What would you like to see McDuffie County have for seniors?

"Well, they already have a place to go and eat and do stuff (the Senior Center), so I can't think of anything else they need. There's really not too much you can do anyway."

What would you say is the biggest issue facing seniors today?

"Health care and insurance. It's a big problem."

What one piece of advice do you have for younger people?

"If they are working, they need to put something away for when they are older. It's bad, now, so there's no telling how it will be later on when they get old. It doesn't faze you when you're younger and you don't think about the future days. But they need to be getting ready, because one day, they are going to have to go in the hospital and figure out how to pay for it."

How did you end up in McDuffie County?

"My mother moved here when I was younger. I lived in Statesboro, and after I graduated from school, I moved here to be with her, and I've been here ever since. I came with the intention of going back, but that was 43 years ago, so I guess this is home, now."
