  1. The sky was clear after 11 AM in Brooke-Alvinston, and remained clear all day.
    Why is the school board so wimpish? The buses could have delivered their charges in the P.M.
    Busing is big business now, but something of a time waste.
    I recall a small bus company , Cowan, handling Warwick, Brooke and Euphemia every morning, no cancellation in severe winters, no heat in the buses, and no accidents. They were always on time.
    We could do better now, rather than manufacturing chaos and fear.
