Creston

Recent articles in the CNA have told us, the citizens of the Creston community, how we must reach deeper and deeper in our pockets for our bus barn. In a perfect world, all the recommendations would be ideal. Sadly it is not a perfect world. We are told that all the buses must be inside for safety. Why? SIT does not keep all their buses inside, and they seem pretty safe. Other school districts in our area do not keep their buses inside, and they seem to be doing well.

Then we have a follow up that says rock cannot be used for the barn but we must use concrete. Thinking they must be making rock differently these days as something was mentioned about it being flammable and that is why we need concrete. So it seems that since we need concrete it has to be heated. More and more as I read about all the requirements that are “required” one has to ask ... is it really necessary, or is it in fact just someone with a dream?
