Bond deserves thanks for road improvements

Thursday, January 12, 2006

Dear Editor:

A good way for the residents of the Barry County area to begin the year 2006 would be to thank Senator Kit Bond for the road improvements that have taken place the past few months, and those we can look forward to in the coming four to five years.

As an OATS rider I know the drivers are all well qualified, many with 10 to 20 plus year safe driving records, but safe roads make life easier for everyone.

If you know someone that needs transportation for medical appointments or shopping, the local paper is kind enough to make the monthly bus schedule and contacts available for OATS riders. If you take advantage of OATS service, I'm sure you will benefit from it.
