Brian Peniston, whose son, Nick, is one of the Bardstown students on the school trip to Washington, D.C., for the inauguration weekend, messaged The Kentucky Standard's Facebook page with this picture of a shattered bus window. The newspaper was unable to contact Brian or Nick Peniston Saturday night to ask if the window was on the bus they were on, and the message doesn't say. Another picture he provided shows what looks like pink or red spray paint on the side of a bus.
Bardstown students encounter D.C. protesters

Bardstown High School students got to see two quite different sides of American democracy this weekend.

On Friday, the 31 students in grades eight through 12 were in the crowd on the Washington Mall watching the peaceful transfer of power and hearing President Donald Trump give his inaugural address.

The next day, on the way back to their hotel, their bus was mobbed by some protesters who were part of the Women’s March on Washington.
