Let's Be Careful Out There
By Dave Kiffer

Although school has only been
in session a couple of weeks, I have already witnessed three
separate incidents in which people - obviously in great hurry
- have sped around school buses that have already stopped with
their their yellow lights flashing.
I realize that it is only illegal to pass a bus when the red
lights are flashing, but really what's the big hurry? Yellow
means slow down and prepare to stop, not gun the engine and whip
around the school bus to save a few precious seconds. You don't
know that a child isn't approaching the bus as it stops. We live
in a small town in which people look out for each other (and
each other's children). Act like it.
