I guess I do take it personally. My family has lived in the Winnabow/Town Creek communities since the 1920's...Winnabow is home. My grandmother graduated from Town Creek Consolidated school over 60 years ago. Town Creek Cons became Bolivia School. From my parents all the way down to my own child, we've attended Bolivia School. Winnabow is a pretty big community, bigger than some realize. Right now Bolivia school is appox 8 miles from home and the new school will only be 3 miles. The only ones who are going to have the long commutes are those who live in the northern most part of the new district. Everyone complains about the long bus rides. From what I came remember, the bus ride from home to school was about an hour forty-five minute ride. In the winter time you froze and the summer time you burned up. Now the new buses have better heat, and AC. Our children ride in luxury compared to us. I don't think we turned out so bad. The school board really should've built the new school farther north on 17 if that is where they want to pull the majority of the students. The planners with the new subdivions should've came up with a plan within those subdivisons for the new schools. All these subdivison want to be self contained and self sufficent, build schools to go with all those banks, grocery stores, hotels, gas stations and medical facilities.
