» Bus Driver from Heaven (CA fires)

Monday, November 19th, 2018, 9:43 PM - by Newman
From CNN, 'Bus driver from heaven' rescued children from California wildfire
Kevin McKay drove the school bus along gridlocked, dark roads as pockets of fire burned all around. Nearly two dozen elementary school children were on board with him.
Smoke began to fill the bus, so McKay took off a shirt. He and two teachers on the bus tore it into pieces and doused them with water. The children held the damp pieces of cloth to their mouths and breathed through them.

“We uploaded to the state two minutes late so the state has chosen not to use our machine recount results,” he said.

In Palm Beach County, outdated vote-counting equipment broke down, causing its elections office to miss the deadline. Only able to count one race at a time, they didn’t even finish the one they started, the Senate race.

“It was a heroic effort and we just completed uploading our Saturday results, as was required by law,” Bucher announced the deadline passed. “If we had three or four more hours, we might have made the time. We got stuck with some mechanical issues.”
