BUSES page 1

which inspects the buses, has
given UHS Transportation an
overall rating of "poor" for at
least three years.
February's inspection moti-
vated Officer Hogan to scruti-
nize UHS Transportation
records to determine if buses
were run while red-tagged.
Messy record-keeping, howev-
er, is hampering his inquiry.
"UHS Transportation was
very lax in keeping mainte-
nance records," Officer Hogan
said. "Wherever they could find
a place to set a piece of paper
down, that's where they put it.
There wasn't any order to it.
They had all the inspection
forms haphazardly put in a
file."
The state removed UHS
Transportation from the honor
system because the company
did not file "self-reinspection"
forms. After buses are red-
tagged, private companies must
send the state self-reinspection

"I've found forms
signed but never
mailed."

forms verifying that buses are
road-worthy.
Officer Hogan said the state
did not receive these forms for
most of the 29 UHS vehicles he
red-tagged last fall — includ-
ing the four he reevaluated in
February.
Bruce Schjolin, who became
UHS Transportation director
in late February, said: "I've
found several forms that were
signed but never mailed."
Despite scanty documenta-
tion, the Motor Carrier Division
will send any evidence of im-
proper operations to the state
Attorney General's office, which
will determine if the company
violated the law.
Penalties could include fines
and jail terms. If individuals are
found guilty of allowing red-
tagged buses on the road with
passengers, they might have to
pay up to $500 for each infrac-
tion or serve a prison term of up
to three months — or both.
If the attorney general de-
termines that UHS
Transportation infringed upon
the law — but cannot pinpoint
the specific person(s) at fault—
the company can be fined.
Were state laws followed be-
fore Mr. Schjolin came on
board? "I have a 50-50 feeling
about it," Mr. Schjolin said.
"Some might have been fol-
lowed. Some might not have."
Jewish Federation officials
insist UHS buses on the road
are safe. They argue that re-
peat violations often occur dur-
ing state inspections because
UHS buses are old. UHS me-

chanics make repairs to the
red-tagged vehicles, but those
repairs often are short-lived.
Sgt. Stephan Turner, com-
mander of the Bus Inspection
Unit for the Michigan State
Police Motor Carrier Division,
does not completely accept this
explanation.
"What that doesn't address
is why we didn't receive the self-
reinspection forms. If we had
received the forms back, we
could take that argument into
account. But when we don't
have the forms, what are we go-
ing to go on?"

pelah cemetery and placed ad-
jacent to the 450 veterans
graves "to catch the attention of
all visitors to the cemetery," I
was appalled.
Visitors to Machpelah should
be reminded of the Jewish men
and women who gave their lives
by a simple but beautifully in-
scribed memorial.

Matching Funds
For Arab Victims

Kudos to Sheldon Miller and
Congregation Beth Shalom for
their solicitation of funds to help (—/
the families of the people slain
at Hebron (Jewish News, March
18). I applaud their sense of fair-
ness and justice.
As a matter of fact I will go
one step farther. I will match
dollar for dollar all funds raised
to this date by the Arab com-
munity to help the families of
Jewish victims of Arab mur-
derers. This includes the 33 or
more slain since the handshake
in July, and the hundreds, nay
thousands, butchered since the
time of the Arab riots early in
this century.
I insist on only one condition.
These contributions by the Arab
community must have been ac-
companied with the following
statement which I quote di-
rectly from Mr. Miller:
"We are trying in some small
measure to let the victims' fam-
ilies know that we express our
deep sorrow over these
tragedies. We want to make it
clear that we are outraged by
these actions and we think
what happened was murder."
I invite others to join me in
this project. I offer them the cer-
tainty that it will not cost them
one red cent.
