Pembroke Hill may be the first school in the region to require seat belts on full-size buses, school officials say. Should all schools do the same?
Pembroke Hill may be the first school in the region to require the safety devices on full-size buses, school officials say. Nationwide, the belts remain uncommon.

Kansas City is a good if not excellent place to live, according to 3 out of 4 residents surveyed recently. A somewhat smaller majority is pleased overall with the city services provided. How would you rate it?
