We were thrilled to see that Paden City received a grant for installing a sidewalk to Paden City Elementary School. That is an improvement that has been needed for years.
With only one way in and out of PCES, the street gets very busy. Without a sidewalk, students had to either walk in yards or on the street with cars during hectic beginning and end of school hours.
Despite drivers’ best efforts, we feared it was only a matter of time before there were injuries from the street-sharing situation.
It will be money well spent, in our opinion. As they say, correctly, the children are our future.
