BLACKFOOT â€” Delbert Baron figures he has easily driven over a million miles behind the wheel of a school bus in his 38 years of driving bus for Blackfoot School District 55. Because of health problems, Baron has reluctantly handed over the bus keys to settle into retirement with his wife of 57 years, Nettie.
"Bus driving is serious business," said Baron. "There comes a time in life when safety is more important than trying to do the job."
