News Flash Speakies: Dateline Volusia County Florida
Here is a story I heard on the news this morning and it frosts me because children are involved. Seven Volusia County elementary schools will be without school crossing guards when they open today. “Budget cuts, budget cuts, we have no money to spare,” those famous words that ring throughout Florida effecting the education and the safety of children. County commissioners and school boards wake up. Cut the budgets for the unnecessary building of new homes, stores, arenas and pet projects of your buddies etc.
I hope not one child is injured due to your trying to save money on school crossing guards, shame on you. I hope the other counties whose schools start next week take heed.
