JOHNSONBURG â€“ The recent change to the bus routes at the Johnsonburg Area School District continues to alarm parents.
Several concerned parents attended Thursday night's Board of Director's meeting voicing their concern.
Concerned parent Diane Jundzilo of Johnsonburg asked the board if there has been any recent changes made since October's meeting.
"Have you done anything in regards to changing the routes," asked Jundzilo. "Just because there is not a pile of parents here does not mean they do not know what's going on."
Students, faculty, government officials, friends and veterans got to see a different side of Dr. Michael O'Brien, Ridgway's first-year superintendent, Thursday morning during a Veterans Day ceremony.
O'Brien, a veteran of the United States Air Force, was humbled by the chance to speak Thursday as he spoke of the importance of being a veteran and just how exclusive that club is.
The Veterans Day exhibit's grand opening is today, with the showcase running through Dec. 2 at the Elk County Historical Society's Robinson Museum along Center Street in Ridgway.
For Mary Kalinowski, executive director of the Elk County Historical Society, the exhibit was a way to recognize the area's veterans and display local memorabilia.
