    Such concerns could affect the Hardin County area, but likely not to the extent that some may fear, according to local experts.

    It was a normal church event for those involved. In my work, I have taken many a group of youth on a trip just like it. The youth group had decided to take a trip to King’s Island and had taken a bus.

    I can imagine the group having loads of fun at the amusement park until it was time to come home. The kids on the bus were probably tired, maybe a little cranky; after all it was 11 p.m.
