Bee Heard

For the people who want to lower the speed limit on Salt Road, maybe we should just have law enforcement issue more tickets.

I couldn’t agree more with the callers about Shisler Road in Clarence. If you aren’t familiar with the road, please stay off it; you won’t regret it. It’s a disaster.

I was shocked to read that the Clarence school bus system was audited and received a terrible report. I am shocked and saddened to know there are bus drivers who do not undergo drug testing, and there are drivers who have not been properly trained and did not have the number of safety drills they should have had for school buses in Clarence. How can we send our children to school knowing they could have a bus driver who has not been properly trained and who has not undergone a drug test? Students need to have those safety drills, in case something happens. This is unacceptable and needs to be fixed immediately.

It was just quietly announced that our supervisor and Town Board have decided to take Sheridan Drive down to two lanes, one in each direction. This is going to be a massive financial undertaking and more of a inconvenience to anyone trying to leave or enter Clarence, especially the Hollow area. How was this decided? Was there a study taken? Was the public asked for their opinions, since so much money will be spent, probably from our taxes? Main Street is already backed up, especially in the mornings and afternoons with school buses. Now Sheridan Drive will be just as bad, if not worse.

I was thrilled to get a letter from the Clarence Central Schools saying they are improving security and beefing up the way you are allowed to enter and exit the building. However, on the first day of school when I dropped my child at school, I noticed there were about 40 or 50 parents outside the building and they were allowed to enter the building and walk their child down to the classroom. How is this not considered a safety breach? So much for improved safety in Clarence. Come on, get your act together.

On the Clarence bike path between Ransom and Wehrle, most of the mile marker signs are missing and have been missing all summer. Is there any chance the town could replace them?
