until everyone is talked out. I will write more later and keep reminding you of the date. Vera White Watch For School Buses Loading-Unloading With the school year beginning, watch for school buses in both urban and rural areas. Illinois law requires motorists to stop before meeting or overtaking a school bus that has stopped to load or unload passengers. If you are driving on a street or highway with at least two lanes of traffic in each direction, you are not required to stop when approaching a stopped school bus from the opposite direction.

But you should slow down and drive carefully. Bus drivers signal an approaching stop at least 100 feet in advance (200 feet in rural areas) by flashing the amber and red lights on the front and rear of the bus. The stop signal arm is extended after the bus comes to a complete stop. You must then come to a complete stop. Do not proceed until the school bus resumes motion, the bus driver signals you to go ahead, or the flashing lights are turned off and the stop signal arm is no longer extended If you are convicted of passing a stopped school bus illegally, your drivers license will be suspended for 30 days.

If you receive two convictions within three years, your license will be suspended for 60 days. I am back to take you down memory lane once more. So many have ask when I was going to write more articles for the paper, well here goes. The subject is "'The Hubbs." I know that brings back memories to a lot of people in the Terre-Haute, Gladstone and Olena Areas. For there is several lucky couples who have celebrated 50 plus years of married life.

For at their 50th It was common to hear "Reverend Hubbs married us." Plus there i is a lot of us who aren't fortunate enough to still have our mates, but sure have our memories. The Hubbs were sent to Terre-Haute in the middle twenties to fill the pulpit of The Methodist Church. Later they were moved to Gladstone in charge of Gladstone and Olena. Here he served until his death in November of 1936. They had church at Gladstone in the morning and Olena in the afternoon.

It was very common for the Hubbs to come home with the Jacob's for Ice Cream or supper. Some times both the friendships lasted down through the years. They had two sons, Raymond, who was probably starting High School and Paul, who was in second grade. I am not sure how long they were in Terre-Haute. Tag's folks lived there at the same time.

So the White kids soon became playmates of the P.K. boys. My first memory of the Hubbs was being taken to Sunday School at Olena. Sometimes in the wagon, but mostly walking. I have kept in touch with the family of all of these kids.

Raymond lives in Canton and Paul spends part of the year in East Peoria, the other half in Florida. Paul and Raymond have promised me to bring their wives and come to my home October 7th. I am planning an open house that afternoon and inviting all who remember them and would like to come to my home sometime Sunday, October 7th from 1:30 Annual Rodeo Ride In Lomax Twenty Illinois high school students have been named recipients of TI-IN United Star Network--Illinois Star School scholarships for Fall 1990.
