Yesterday we were all reminded on how fragile our children's lives are due to the tragic accident that occurred in Rochester, Indiana, that resulted in the deaths of three children while boarding their school Bus. Our Hearts break for the Family, Friends Classmates and community of the victims and to the first responders that work these types of accidents and see things no one should ever have to witness. With this tragedy it provides another opportunity to remind drivers of the Indiana laws regarding school bus stops. When approaching a school bus from any direction which is stopped with its flashing red lights activated and its stop arm extended, motorists are required to STOP, even on multiple lane highways. Motorists who are on a highway that is divided by a barrier or unimproved median (i.e. a concrete or cable barrier, or a grass median) are required to stop only if they are traveling the same direction as the school bus. If there is no unimproved median or barrier, then all lanes in all directions must stop. Disregarding a school bus stop arm is a serious violation and one that school bus drivers are quick to report. Violation of this law is a Class “A” infraction and is punishable by a maximum fine of up to $10,000.

Halloween 2018 thank you to everyone that pitched in to make this night special to all our children in the community.

Our Sheriff's Deputies will be passing out candy tonight throughout the county. We hope to see everyone out and wish a safe Trick or Treating to all!!!!!!!!
