Sing it with me now: "OH, Back to school..."
- Fort Thomas Independent Schools is back in session. Without Andrea Conners.
I noticed a few items on my way into work this morning. It seems that the Gripe of the Day posted by Marc Roth back in February of this year, has made its way to the front offices of Highlands High School. Marc talked about how parents, who decide to drop their kids off in the middle of the road, cause a big mess on Memorial Parkway in front of the middle and high schools.
Scrolling on the marquee, amid the "Welcome Back" and "Go Bluebirds!" electronic affirmations, was Marc's manifesto: "Please pull over when dropping off kids" (or something to that effect - I was driving).
Journalism. It works.
- While that was one positive note, a commenter on our Facebook page noted that traffic was terrible today. They attributed it to the fact that the high school and middle schools now have the same starting time. Anyone with any insight on that?
- Raise your hand if you have ever had to go to driving school after a ticket to avoid getting points on your license? It's okay, I'm sure most of us have been there. Well now thanks in part to friend of the blog, Circuit Clerk Taunya Nolan Jack, there's an alternative.
It's called the CATS (County Attorney Traffic School) and it consists of a short, online education program you can take from your home. The cost is about the same as driving school and you'll have 60 days to complete it.
If that hasn't sold you yet, instead of having to plead guilty to the traffic citation, it will be DISMISSED!
Did I mention Taunya Nolan Jack is up for reelection this year?
