THURSDAY, MAY 6, 1971-13 ]A'WERS'*= EDITOR Dear concerned parents, This is my opinion and mine only. I graduated from the Grade School and High School in Mt. Pulaski. The school sys- tem here is a very big reason why I live in Mt. Pulaski. 1 drive from Mt. Pulaski to Decatur daily. There have been many bad-driving days when I have said to myself, Thank heaven, I don't have to worry about my kids getting on a bus. My chil- dren are not directly involved in the coming year, however, my son is going into 2nd grade next year, so it still is close enough to be concerned. I know my kids receive the best educa- tion possible at Mt. Pulaski. l have a lot of doubts as to the need for busing a ktd that walks 1 block to school, 6 miles away. I hope someone will be able to answer my questions to my satisfaction. Sincerely, Libby Meister Etheridge NOTE OF THANKS I would like to thank each and everyone for the cards, flowers and visits while I was in ALM Hospital. Also, Dr. Bor- gerson and the nurses. My sin- cere gratitude to Rev. Zumstein for his prayers. May God Bless one and all.
