As sure as Christ­mas comes ev­ery year — and if you love that day as much as we do, note it’s only 135 days away — we of­fer you once again our an­nual watch out for the kids ed­i­to­rial.

If for the last two months, you have be­come used to speed­ing down the back roads in the morn­ing af­ter catch­ing a few ex­tra min­utes of shut­eye, we sug­gest you set the alarm clock a lit­tler ear­lier from now on.

School has started in New­ton County, and school buses are now out and about and students with their minds full of all sort of won­der­ful learn­ing — or maybe so­cial con­cerns — may be dart­ing across the street with­out look­ing.

Re­mem­ber, there are very stiff fines and con­se­quences for not stop­ping when school buses have their red lights flash­ing. Be cour­te­ous; drive a lit­tle slower. You don’t want to be the cause of one of our young peo­ple suf­fer­ing an in­jury.

Our chil­dren are the fu­ture of New­ton County, and we need to do ev­ery­thing we can to en­sure that they ful­fill their destiny.

Drive safely and obey the rules; those ex­tra cou­ple min­utes of sleep and con­ve­nience are not worth tak­ing a life.
