Budget Presentations Continue
The board of education meeting March 3 attracted a large enough crowd to move from the board room to the auditorium where Superintendent Dr. Lawrence Bozzomo stated the Requests for Proposals for outsourcing transportation went out to the vendors and toward the end of March the district should receive the sealed bids. The board may, at that time, take action although even if the board accepts a bid, by law it must be approved by the community and the board is considering the possibility of placing it on the ballot. Should the board decide in favor of keeping transportation in-house then they may place a bond referendum on the ballot to fund the purchase of new buses.

On the Bay
This year is the 100th anniversary of the Great Ocean Race of 1905, a race from New York to England that included some of the most powerful racers in the world. On May 21, the race will be re-created as the Rolex Transatlantic Challenge, with owners of super yachts again crossing 3,000 miles of ocean. Charlie Barr's record in that race so long ago has stood for 100 years, and is the oldest race record in sailing. Barr raced the renowned 185' schooner Atlantic eastbound, setting a monohull transatlantic racing record of 12 days, four hours, one minute and 19 seconds.
