Bus stop-arm violations

While I do not have more information than what I am typing here, and even if I did I couldn't share much more, I learned that at least one very recent bus stop-arm violation is being investigated by local police involving a B-B-E school bus. The driver was a high school student, although I have not heard what school this student attends. I am very thankful that we are not talking about a child being killed by an inattentive driver. It could have been MUCH worse! Hallelujah!

On a related note, members of the local police / county / state patrol law enforcement will be cracking down hard on texting-while-driving. They will especially be watching teenage drivers in this area. Of course, it's illegal for anyone of any age to text-while-drive or drive without their full attention on the roadway.

For kids who break this law, it will get ugly. You've been warned. Please pass the word.

And while I'm in the sharing mood, check out this article in the Sauk Centre Herald. Seat belts and car seats work!!!

The phone number to the Kandiyohi County Sheriff's Office is 320-214-6700.

Hopefully law enforcement catches him before I do. I would hook him up to my truck and drag him down the street!!!!!!

Conference meet!

Here's the poster in the high school cafeteria area put together by Greater Visions Photography of Belgrade.

The B-B-E Speech team is headed to Kimball Area high school for the 2015 Central Minnesota Conference championships. B-B-E is the defending conference champions in the CMC, but heading into today's meet they are underdogs against a deeper but equally talented Eden Valley-Watkins team.

Good luck to all competitors!!!

Why speech? Being in speech gives your son/daughter a real competitive advantage when they:
1. Speak in class
2. Apply for colleges
3. Apply for scholarships
4. Interview for a job
5. Ask someone out
6. Do a radio interview
7. Audition for plays
8. Speak to the school board
9. Make a best man/maid of honor speech
10. Talk to the principal or other authority figure
11. Run for public office
12. Give a presentation to potential investors in their company they may some day own.

***Update: in a close race, EVW defeated BBE for first place. The top three scores were:
1st - EV-W 122
2nd - B-B-E 107
3rd - Rockford 90

Eden Valley-Watkins had 43 entries compared to just 21 for B-B-E, yet the B-B-E speech team managed to make quite a race out of it.
