I was wondering if anyone had anything they would like to say about the bus on Arbuckle Creek not bringing their kids home like they used too. Now we drive a couple miles to the bus stop 3 times a day. I think its rediculous that they cant drive through to Manilla Ridge rd. Instead they decided to stop at Bill Higginbothams and turn around! That is almost out to the highway.When I called the Board of Education, they Charlie Tribble told me that is was the parents responsibility to create a place for the bus to turn around....WOW....Now thats news to me.The only reason that they wont come up here is because they were using a mans driveway to turn around in, and now that the rain and that huge bus has collapsed his drain pipe under his driveway....he asked them to fix it and they said they wasnt going to fix it!....so he told them to find another place to turn around....I dont blame him! Sounds like he got used and told to get lost when he needed the favor returned!

That is comp. insane they r gonna make parents drive all the way down there to pick up there children ! What if the parent can't one day ?? The child has to walk? & the board of education from Mason & Putnam Co. Have used that driveway for yrs to turn around in ! The most they can do is fix it , like it would put a big hold in there pockets smh !! If the driveway gives out all the way than he can't get his car out !! They need to get their head outta their butts & do something !!

How would u feel If it were ur child that had to walk over half a mile to a mile to the bus every morn and evening ? Or u go do it ur self ! I bet u would b complaining aswell! I think that mason / putnam co should fix the drain tile that over the yrs the bus has helped wear down ! That seems only right !

Kids need to walk a little. Instead of wasting gas stopping every 16 feet because little jimmy might trip and fall playing his Nintendo DS. Most kids are overweight anyways

I can't believe all the little fat kids at the grade school. It's sad, and parents are 100% to blame for it! generally it's the welfare recipient kids that are obese

Thats true P.K., but my 11 yr. old girl cant walk 1.5 miles home alone in this day and age! I am afraid of what could happen to her. I work and so does my spouse. We try to be there to get her and have succeeded so far. I hope they get something figured out befor next year. It is a greate deal of stress trying to get our work to deal with this sudden change. It also is costly in gas when your budget is stretched with a weakened economy!...I hope you understand! Thanks

Here's a novel concept. How about making a place for the bus to turn around, since Charlie so-n-so told you that's why the bus stopped running that far? You have all summer...

People who complain about something they have to power to fix aggravate the holy snot out of me. Don't just whine and run your mouths. DO SOMETHING!1436

So very true ... There is no place on the creek but the church for the bus to turn around which is still a good walking distance .. Some people r so ignorant when they have no clue what they are even talking about ... How about the one running ur mouth cause ur agg. Help pay to have my grandpas drive way fixed !! For one Mason/ Putnam should b doing it but won't ... So what if the parents of the children have all summer.. It still won't fix the problem ... Maybe u need to look in on the situation a little better b4 u out ur input in it all... U r not even understanding the concept of What is goin on!! Do you even know where the place is that is being spoken about ... Concerned parent has all rights to be mad ...

Do me a big favor , learn where all this is happening at.. Drive through the rd .. Than u tell me where the bus is goin to find another turn around spot.. The rd is to narrow .. Smh .. I wish people would know all the facts b4 saying this kinda stuff... It is my grandpas drive way that is falling because the buses and all the floods over the yrs ... He is on a fixes incomes and can't afford to fix it him self maybe if the county's would help out than the problem would b solved .. He was nice enough to let the buses turn sound all these yrs and now his drive way is giving out , there is no one to help him... Once it gives comp. out he is stuck in.. Until he can find another way to get his car in and out ...

No, I'm not saying it's your responsibility. It's the county's responsibility to make sure your kid gets to school everyday, isn't it?

Oh, it's not? It's yours?

You know, the bus COULD quit running out Arbuckle at all. Then what would you do?

I graduated in 88 but when I before high school we lived at a place where I had to walk a mile to bus stop. It was out in the sticks. I did have shoes when I had to walk up hill both ways in the snow ;-)

yeah, you people are right. Myself and my wife are too stoned and have lazy kids. lol, thats why we both work and are not on welfare. Thats why we both are subjected to random drug testing and have endorsements from the state and Federal Gov. to do our jobs. Thats why our the taxes taken out of our check for school and road repair are so low! You want to sling mud. I can do that as well. You all who keep making your ignorant comments when apparently you have no idea what you're talking about are just that....Ignorant! You are probably too stoned to work, or on disability and SSI for a bad nothing. Sitting at home in front of your computer running your mouth!...lol... I will take my kids to the bus stop every morning, not because I agree with you, but because I have no choice. Because the system that I pay to support every paycheck has left me none! They dont care about doing right, just keep sending the money! Maybe, if everything goes good, something will happen to you people like this. It would please me to know this. I need to go now. I halfta go to work. But you probably would know nothing of that would you?

P.S people it's not back in the day where it is safe for children to walk a mile or 2 by them selves .. I guess your either to " Stoned " or can't comprehend what is on the news every night !!

Just do like the Winfield people and drive them the entire way to school. Who needs a school bus anyways?

You are lazy. Your kids are lazy. We need more 300 pound 3rd grade kids in WV. Don't let them walk, it is dangerous!
