The next time you see the driver of an 18-wheeler talking on his radio, consider this, he might be exchanging recipes. "Oh yeah, we'd talk about cooking," Elgin resident Tony Hollister laughs. Tony drove an 18-wheeler for Coca-Cola for 36 years. He remembers one time on the road when a rib special drew the drivers into a truck stop like magnets and they all spent a long time talking ribs. These days he drives a school bus. His unique work schedule, with the hours off between taking the kids to school and picking them up, works perfectly for Tony.
