“I met Don (Ujara) Sly when I firt moved to Redwood Valley. He was a generally serious person, but a great sense of humor. He taught most of the twenty or more bus drivers how to drive. We never had an accident. He was the ultimate professional teacher. He took me on, as a college drop out and flake in some ways and never doubted that I'd be a great driver. His determination and his faith in his students left no room for self-doubt. OF COURSE we'd be great. He was a remarkable person, friend, and parent to his son. ” - Laura Johnston Kohl
