School bus inspections underway
School bus inspections are underway in Putnam County, with the Tennessee Highway Patrol helping to make sure children are safe while riding to school and back home again. "Safety is the main purpose of it all," said Trooper Darryl Winningham, who is in charge of the annual state-required inspections in the 15-county district. "Just for the children's safety." The inspections recently started and will continue through Oct. 25, inspecting all 60 of the county's school buses from top to bottom — from wheel kingpins and bearings to the fire extinguisher and first aid kit.
