MY NAME IS CAROL LAFOLLETTE AND I AM A SCHOOL BUS DRIVER IN CITRUS COUNTY. I JUST HAVE TO GIVE A THUMBS UP TO SGT TOM HALL AND HIS CREW IN STOPPING PEOPLE FROM RUNNING MY STOP ARM AT TWO DANGEROUS STOPS I HAVE ON HWY 44 IN CRYSTAL RIVER.

YOU NEVER KNOW WHEN TO EXPECT THEM AND BELIEVE ME SOMETIMES I WISH IT WAS EVERY DAY AS PEOPLE ARE SO IGNORANT IN THE FACT THAT THESE ARE THEIR CHILDREN , GRANDCHILDREN AND FAMILY FRIEND'S KIDS THAT I AM HAULING. BUT ON AND ON EVERY DAY THEY STILL GO THROUGH IT THINKING THEY DIDN'T GET CAUGHT. AT THE END OF LAST YEAR I WAS AMAZED AT ONE INCIDENT WHEN THEY WERE ABLE TO TICKET TWO AT THE SAME TIME AND THEN TODAY 8/24 IT HAPPENED SO FAST THAT I DIDN'T EVEN SEE THEM AS THEY WERE PARKED ON THE OTHER SIDE FROM WHERE THEY USUALLY SIT. IT HAPPENED SO FAST THAT EVEN I MISSED THE INCIDENT. I WAS MAKING SURE THE KIDS GOT OFF SAFE AND ONLY HEARD THE SIRENS AND SAW ONE OF THE PARENTS SMILE AND CLAP HER HANDS THAT THEY GOT ANOTHER ONE. THAT THEY WERE TRYING TO MAKE HER CHILDS BUS STOP SAFER WAS THE REASON SHE WAS SO CHEERFUL. PLEASE TELL HIM I APPRECIATE IT AND GIVE HIM A THUMBS UP FOR HIS EFFORTS. SOONER OR LATER THE PEOPLE OF CITRUS COUNTY WILL LEARN TO "FAGETABOUTIT" WHEN HE'S AROUND.

SINCERELY,
CAROL LAFOLLETTE
BUS 04-48
