Thanksgiving week is a short one at Civil Beat. We set aside the day after the holiday as an official day off so folks can get a good rest, something that was especially needed this year after APEC.

But there was no shortage of stories worth your attention, including a development in our Taken for a Ride series on Hawaii’s runaway school bus costs. A major mainland school bus company is now eyeing bidding on Hawaii contracts after reading Civil Beat’s articles on lack of competition and how costs have skyrocketed. We’re featuring stories from the series this weekend, thinking that this may be a time when you want to catch up on some good reading.

Here are 10 must read stories from the week.
