HARWINTON, CT -- 091409KB01 -- 14 September 2009 -- Region 10 Superintendent of Schools Alan Beitman checks out one of the district's 10 new buses at a Board of Education meeting at Har-Bur Middle School in Burlington on Monday. The buses, which cost the local bus company, All-Star Transportation, more than $800,000, are state-of-the-art 2010 Blue Bird Vision models designed for better driver visibility. All-Star, which has more than 500 school vehicles in service daily across Litchfield County, allocated the new buses to Harwinton because the company's owner, Leslie Sheldon, lives there and wanted to give back to her hometown, she said at the meeting on Monday.
