To the Editor:
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the first responders that showed up quickly to the recent bus accident on State Route 48 north of Covington on Nov. 18. As the bus driver it was very comforting to see the massive turnout of Covington firemen, squad members, police, Miami County Deputies and volunteers that showed up in this time of need. I would also like to thank Covington Schools Transportation Supervisor, Ken Miller, and school superintendent Dave Larson for their help at the accident. Thanks to Mike for bringing a spare bus to get the students safely home. To the students that were on the bus, your cooperation and calmness in such an emergency was outstanding! We have all realized that reality hit home that day, something we thought would never “happen” here.
Thanks again to everyone who helped out.
