A man is dead following a shooting in Geneva County Wednesday evening.
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - The Alabama Senate has
voted to honor school bus drivers on the day Dale County bus driver
Charles Poland Jr. was shot and killed.
The Senate on Tuesday passed a resolution declaring
Jan. 29 as Public School Bus Driver Appreciation Day. That is the day
Poland was shot to death while trying to stop Jimmy Lee Dykes from
boarding a bus in Midland City and abducting a student.
The resolution by Independent Sen. Harri Anne Smith
of Slocomb now goes to the House for consideration. Smith says the
appreciation day will be a way to honor Poland and recognize the
contributions of all school bus drivers.
Poland is also honored at the state Department of Education headquarters in Montgomery.
