In view of the entire goings on, I thought I would write a little on what is 
happening with the NOVA new bus schedule.   As many of you know, not only did 
Sam Scheib come to our TCB meeting, but he brought the entire team to put down 
rumors and take suggestions for the new plan.   What follows is what I can 
think of now, but there will be lots more to come.


With MiccosukeeHills,, I made the suggestion that they compromise and instead 
of stopping on the road, where there is a ditch, and driving all threw the 
complex,at least pulling into the parking lot where folks could come and meat 
the bus.   He immediately thought that would be a good suggestion for a 


I also asked about the governors Square Mall, I pointed out that just by virtue 
that there is handicapped parking up close to the building, that the state and 
federal government know the danger of walking threw un controlled traffic.   
Again he said he would take that to heart and had his secretary write it down.


After Sam left our meeting he called and told us that he had been working on 
our suggestions and had one of his own.   He is per posing putting in audible 
signals at every place where there is a transfer that requires crossing the 
street.   Folks, this amounts to sum 39 audible signals and I think it is 
something to be commended.


You all know that White Cane Days is coming up on Thursday and Sally and my 
Tallassee chapter of Lions are going to be out in forse.   We will be carrying 
signs at Magnolia and call, as well as Capital Circle and Mahan.   We will have 
sleep shades for members and others to use to cross the street and I have 
plenty of white canes for them to experience.   Sam's public relations person 
along with our Lions president, Ray Maloy will be inviting the media.   They 
have already contacted the police department and they have shown a willingness 
to work with Star Metro on traffic issues.


I think this new bus plan has left us with a great opportunity to get some 
concessions before we are left behind.   It has come after years of hard work 
and you our blind citizens are the ones to thank.   Please let us all know if 
you hear any new news on this subject and we will all be working together, 
rather than pulling against each other.


PS, Sam and his team will be back to TCB after the first of the year and 
staying as partners in this.
