The lines have faded. At the top of the quarter-mile long hill to Columbia Jr/Sr High School, painted lines and arrows designating pedestrian crossings and traffic flow are now barely visible. Fran Resch, former crossing guard and former school board member, made three requests to school officials to have the lines repainted - once at the beginning of the last school year, and twice at recent school board meetings (including Thursday night's committee of the whole meeting). He is concerned about the safety of students who need to cross the road several times a day when vehicles are traveling up the hill. So far, his requests have been ignored. According to Resch, he was told that line painting couldn't be worked into the budget.
