Yes the county is really screwing their drivers. I could never understand why they give the drivers vacation and personnal days but they are penalized when they use them. Office personnel are different they can fly out of state for a sick relative but let a drivers' father die and the driver is penalized for taking off for the funeral by taking away their field trips for that pay periodn and the next pay period which is extra money for them.
They think we are low class idiots that can be treated badly because we do need the insurance and so forth. I told my wife, politics start right out in the county then proceed on up from there. Sounds like you drivers need to get together and stage a no regular route no drive for them, I think it would only take a few days to put a stop on getting kids to school. Stop the good ole boy crap as they dish out to the people now. Let Mr. Watson and the Super drive those hot buses for a week and let us see who is the bigger person. Politics and ass kissing make me sick. Most transportation directors would want the same driver on their route becasue of the relationship that has been built upon for all the years that driver has drove that route. Bus drivers need more respect, how many people want to actually sit on a 125 degree bus? But that is stimulus money for the county and Wal-mart,,,don't worry about the none air-conditioned buses and the drivers. Hang together and Mr. Watson will get his due,,,Karma,,,I guess a bus garage is a bus garage,get a little promotion and then they can't get their heads in the door, but still don't know crap.

My grand daughter if she has another stroke would a new driver know what the hell to do...i am not going to let someone that has never handle a child with special needs drive my grand daughter.If I have to take her everyday and pick her up I will But I will let the bus come to my house just so they can drive out of there way so I can tell them to go ON.Will this new driver know how to handle a child that has Seizures or if a feeding tub get pull out by accident What the Hell is coming on with our Transportation Dept. With our school system it sound like it maybe a lot of butt kissing going on.What will it take for us to get Ms.Debbie back on bus #50.....I have wrote the State Journal maybe I need to write The State Senator.

well im not a county parent , however a couple of yrs ago a child of a family friend didnt come home 4m school . when the parents notified the board to ask the driver ( jeletta ) where the child was , jelleta told them that the child didnt get on after school . several hours later the child was found wandering through peaksmill . thanks to a good citizen she found her way home . jelleta left her on the bus sleeping . thank god that the careless driver lost her job , i only hope 4 the parents and children of the county that shes not the one thats being hired back on . if she is , i suggest that you all be concerned !

Some one needs to get in touch with Mr. Watson girdfriend and tell her now that he has taken over the Maintaince Dept. He is making more money to give to her. Don't know why they gave him another Dept when can't handle is own Dept. ( Bus Garage ). But from what I understand Kim Gearhart the Asst. Director does all the work any way while Mr. Watson useing our tax money and rides around all day checking on his rental property in the company truck. He better be worry about his employee's that his damn rental property.

She know how to handle the Special need children that ride bus #50

I know everybody is concern about Miss. Debbie Hall but what about Miss Marshia that drove bus 82, she has been with the school board for over 19 years, And he took her route away. What's gets me she said they had called her a week before school started and told her that they was adding to her route which she was find about, then 3 days later call her and told her that they was taken it away from her for what reason, According to Mr. Watson to give her a route farer out in the county and less childrens ! Why after all these years do that ( Cause they gave her route to the head merchanic Dale Penn, girlfriend and from what I understand she just started the end of last year.) Why not give her a route that comes open, No! not Mr. Watson it's who you screw up there to get what you want. And since he and the Head Merchanic try's to screw everything they do what they want. My kids enjoyed Miss. Marshia she some problems with certain students in the beginning but got things straight out and they all r friends, to me she was just doing her job ! I pay taxes for my childrens to ride the bus but now I'll take them. And I hope and pray the ones that was giving her trouble gives the new driver double trouble, Thank- You

MY NAME IS DEBBIE HALL I AM THAT BUS DRIVER THAT MY SPECIAL NEEDS ROUTE WAS TAKEN FROM ME. I HAVE DROVE A BUS FOR 16 YRS. NOW AND I HAVE HAD NO ACCIDENTS, NO WRITE UPS FOR ANYTHING, NEVER BEEN IN TROUBLE FOR MISSING DAYS. BUT MR. WATSON AND I HAD A DISAGREEMENT THE LAST WEEK OF SCHOOL AND IT WASNT PRETTY! I WENT TO HIS BOOS WHICH IS MR. PRESTON AND TALKED TO HIM ABOUT THEY WAY WATSON TREATED ME. WELL, WATSON DID NOT LIKE ME GOING OVER HIIS HEAD SO IN ORDER FOR HIM TO MORE SO "GET EVEN" WITH ME HE TOOK MY ROUTE OF 14 YRS. AWAY FROM ME. WHEN I WAS CALLED IN THERE FOR HIM TO TELL ME THAT A WEEK BEFORE SCHOOL STARTED, I ASK HIM WHY HE WAS DOING THIS, HE GAVE ME NO REASON. I TOLD HIM HE WAS HURTING ME NOW BUT THOSE KIDS WIL HURT NEXT. I HAVE WATCHED SOME OF MY KIDS GROW UP ON THAT BUS. FROM PUSH PRE-SCHOOL TO THEIR SECOND AND THIRD YEAR OF HIGH SCHOOL. I TOLD HIM I KNOW THOSE KIDS BETTER THAN I KNOW MY OWN SON. I AM NOT OMLY FRIENDS WITH THEIR FAMILYS, SOME OF THEM CONSIDER ME PART OF THEIR FAMILIES. I HAVE CRIED EVERY NIGHT SINCE HE HAS DONE THIS. I MISS THOSE KIDS TERRIBLY! I HAD ONE CHILD THAT MOVED TO ANOTHER SCHOOL DISTRICT LAST YEAR, HE DONE TERRIBLE IN THE SCHOOL AND ON THE BUS HE WAS RIDING. HIS MOTHER CALLED ME AND SAID MISS DEBBIE I HAVE MOVED BACK AND DAVID WILL BE BACK ON YOUR BUS AND HE WAS SO HAPPY TO GET TO COME BACK TO MY BUS. NOW IM NOT GOING TO BE ON THERE FOR HIM, THANKS TO MR. WATSON. I HAVE SOME AWESOME PARENTS ON THAT ROUTE! THEY TREAT ME WITH RESPECT AND CARE ABOUT MY OPINIONS. I LOST 2 OF MY PRECIOUS 4 LEGGED BABIES, WHICH WERE BOSTON TERRIERS. I HAD TO HAVE THE PUT TO SLEEP DUE TO ILLNESS. ONE OF THOSE SPECIAL PARENTS GAVE ME A 5 WEEK OLD BOSTON PUPPY FOR CHRISTMAS 3 YRS. AGO AND HAD IT FLEW HERE FROM OKLAHOMA. NOW DOES THAT TELL ANYONE HOW THEY FEEL ABOUT ME? I LOVE THEM ALL AND I MISS THEM, ITS LIKE TAKING AWAY MY OWN KIDS FROM ME! I WANT TO THANK MY PARENTS FOR ALL THEY ARE DOING TO HELP ON THIS MATTER. ESPECIALLY KATHY! I WILL SEE YOU ALL AT THE BOARD MEETING!

Whoever told you the Board meeting on Monday was closed to the public lied straight to your face. It is open to the public. They're taking public comments on the proposed 2 cent tax increase, matter of fact. I would imagine you were told that out of spite, though it could have been an honest mistake.

I am a bus driver for this district,i have been for many years now,and over the years of knowing whats going on at the bus garage would shock you.at the end of last yr they gave letters to people who has missed alot of days,(but they give us 10 sick and 2 personal days) which we can't use.
these drivers where told they would not get there routes back ,they would get different routes or monitor,well most are driving there routes most aren't.theses one thats missed either had heart attacks,a parent in the hospital or them,a child in a accident or even death in the family,which is not right,but there are some that do miss for no reasons.theses drivers should NOT be punished for medical reasons.Also the office personal SHOULD have to drive and/or drive a bus ,but it's not going to happen they want to stay cool and talk on cell phones.and if the weght issue is passed ,all i can say they better get up off there asses and start losing it,it's not going to happed sitting at a desk typing and talking on the phone or CELL PHONES. more to come

i drive a bus for the county.i have for several yrs,and what goes on up there you would be shocked.I's not right for the ones that got letters last yr for missing to many days,most of them was do for medical reasons,stroke,parent sick,materity,and even a child in a accident,and death in the family.they gives us the days but we aren't aloud to use them.if they are short on drivers then they need to get up off there butts and drive o but they aren't going to do that they HAVE to stay in the office,why? i know several directors that drive ,i think it should be mantory that office personal has to drive also,if we have to drive in the heat they should also have to.also if the weight thing gets passed a couple of them will be in trouble,it kills them to get up out of the chair and off the computer and off the cell phones.all i can say they better get there butts moving.also it's not right to use a company truck to check rental propery and collect rent.and he STAYS on the CELL PHONE to his girlfriend.everytime i have tried to talk to him he is on it.and also having employees driving by her house. more to come
