Tuesday's paper had the usual headline with the name Hubbard in it. There was also talk about widening Wire Road in another headline above the fold. On the third page stashed among the "Local Briefs" stories was a little paragraph about a child killed by a school bus. The only thing brief about this story is that child's life. He died because he stopped to pick up a notebook and some candy he dropped and the bus driver didn't see him. He's dead. This is in our area, our community, and it's a brief? This story deserved more. I think at the very least it could have discussed safety issues of how future accidents like it could be avoided. Mirrors? Monitors? Video cameras?

This child and his family deserved more than a paragraph. This is an important story. My heart and prayers go out to this family of Bessiah Hedges.
