Gainesville Schools’ bus mechanic Jerry Beasley was pleased that the district’s 16 buses passed the recent annual inspection by the Missouri State Highway Patrol at 100 percent – for the sixth year in a row. Beasley, a 1983 GHS graduate, has been the district’s mechanic for 27 years. He says he’s seen a lot of changes in the vehicles since he hired on with the district in 1996. For one thing, all the buses are diesel now and may have computerized components. The price has gone up too. A new bus these days can cost $85,000, he said.
