Clubhouse Road Aftermath: Speed Limit Lowered; School Employee Fired

  • The speed limit will be reduced from 45 to 40 mph along a stretch of Clubhouse Road where three pedestrians were killed by cars over the last two years, the County Commission decided today. “It’s a tiny step in a long journey,” County Commissioner George Lindsey said. About half of the new speed-limit signs went up this afternoon. Residents said on Facebook they think much more needs to happen.  What do you think?
  • A school system transportation manager was fired today for falsely telling superiors that students didn’t have to cross the dangerous section of Clubhouse Road to catch school buses and then changing route information in a computer system.
