Portsmouth - (INS) - Parents of 27 Highland Bend pupils protested lack of transportation today by keeping the youngsters home.

The school board had refused to provide transportation requested until a narrow bridge over the scioto river could be made safe for a bus.

Although the site is within the city limits, Scioto county commissioners purchased a steel bridge but must have city and state aid to erect it.
