Traditionally Rosemont Middle School eighth graders end the school year with a trip to Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia. Parents sign permission slips and school buses take the students on the day-long event, returning them to the school parking lot at the end of the day. This year, one of the 625 Rosemont students did not come back on the bus Tuesday evening as had been expected. Instead, his mother had to pick him up at the theme park. Joanne Ackerman, student Scott Ackerman's mother, said she got a call after 5 p.m. from her son, who was in tears and telling her the school buses left him at the theme park.

The community interaction over the so-called road diet has been enlightening and speaks directly to one of our founding principles. The freedom to speak and to exchange ideas is fundamental to this democratic republic, and in so many ways, it is a principle that is becoming marginalized. I thought I would comment on the most recent road diet in our neighborhood. Dunsmore School has been a fabric of this community for more than half a century. Our daughter and son both went to school there, and both later graduated from Crescenta Valley High School and moved on into adult life and have children of their own. In recent days Dunsmore Avenue, near the school and park, has undergone significant change.

Robert Chacon School buses are likely to keep rolling along Angeles Crest (2) Highway, but who pays for that service will be decided in part by a vote tonight of the La Canada Unified School District board. The board is expected to vote on whether to charge 10 families $115 each month to bus their 19 children to school from the Chilao area. The school district will net $11,150 from charging parents. The district has been paying $47,000 a year to bus the students.
