Students suspended for bullying bus monitor

NEW YORK (AP) -

Four seventh-grade boys from upstate New York who were caught on video mercilessly taunting Karen Klein, a 68-year-old bus monitor, have received their punishment.

The school system in Greece, N.Y., a Rochester suburb, said it will suspend the middle school students from school and from using regular bus transportation for a year.

The students will be transferred to a special alternative education program. The district is legally required to give the students an education.

Each student will also be required to complete 50 hours of community service with senior citizens.

The video uploaded to YouTube by a fellow student drew millions of viewers. A fund drive that began with a goal of $5,000 to help Klein take a nice vacation raised more than $667,304 as of Friday.

WSYR-TV in Syracuse first reported the school district's decision.

    State officials said they will consider converting dilapidated train tracks into a recreational trail in the northeastern Adirondacks and look at options to bolster tourist train service at the southwestern end of the 119-mile-long rail corridor. The plan announced late Wednesday appears to be an attempt to strike a compromise between rail-trail advocates who envision a 90-mile biking, hiking and snowmobiling trail and railroad advocates who want to extend rail service.
