Drivers may arrive at Spokane International Airport with dirty cars but they depart clean. A courtesy car wash is covered by the fee for parking in two garages and one outside lot. The Spokesman-Review reports the car wash is used by about 200 vehicles a week. The airport car wash uses biodegradable soap and recycles the water.

Because of that, Johnny Brown has been searching for other ways to keep his thriving car wash business afloat in Duncan, Oklahoma. With the drought causing the city to enforce strict water rationing regulations, Brown decided to bypass the middle man and drill his own well.

Deloitte just released its fourth annual Millennial Survey and the findings suggest what Millennials (and me) have known all along. Employers are barking up the wrong tree when it comes to hiring.
