Reports: Lunches seized from Utah
schoolkids because of unpaid bills

NBC News [Salt Lake City], by Henry Austin

Original Article

Posted By:BaseballFan, 1/30/2014 9:57:14 AM

Dozens of children at a Utah school had their lunches seized and thrown away because they did not have enough money in their accounts, prompting an angry response from parents, it was reported. "She took my lunch away and said, ´Go get a milk,’” Sophia Isom, a fifth-grader at Salt Lake City’s Uintah Elementary School, told NBC affiliate KSL.com. "I came back and asked, ´What´s going on?´ (Snip) Salt Lake City District Spokesperson Jason Olsen told the Tribune that parents had been notified about negative balances on Monday and a child nutrition manager had decided to withhold lunches to deal

Comments:
Not one, but TWO great lessons about life! 1. Pay your bills when they are due. 2. There is no such thing as a free lunch.

While there are no doubt some households which will struggle to pay their lunch bills, let´s face it...there are deadbeats who will "job" the system.
Did poor Sophie get picked up from school that day in her mom´s Escalade?

While it is tough on the kids, there is NO excuse for a child to starve because a parent did not pay for the kid´s lunch. However, if they can´t afford it, then brown bag.

I always thought peanut butter, jelly, baloney, liverwurst with lettuce and tomato sandwiches were always more nutritious than most school cafeteria lunches anyway.

Solution: Cancel the program and refund the parents for whatever is left in their accounts!

If a parent doesn´t follow the rules of the school lunch program insisted upon by the current government - Mouchelle - we´ll punish your child.

Well, well, where the motto regarding the always touted comment it I for the children.

I bet the salary of a ´child nutrition manager´ would have paid for a whole years worth of lunches....especially the kind of "manager" that thinks taking food AWAY from a child qualifies as ´managed nutrition´.

After tossing God out of the public conversation, we forget things like...."Suffer not the sins of the father on the children."

It is very easy to qualify for free or reduced cost lunches. There is no reason for these children to be without lunch. But parents do need to accept responsibility to see that their child is fed.It´s a simple application. If they don´t qualify and just refuse to pay their bills, that´s another matter.

I think this was handled badly. Parents should have been notified that their child would not be served lunch, and the child should not have been in the lunchroom and certainly should not have been served a lunch that was then thrown away.

No kids for 20 years. This lunch business is a total mystery. How come kids don;t bring a sack lunch from home?

How did the State become ´responsible´ for feeding these kids morning noon and night? What´s next? Potty training and fashion advice?

A hopeless situation.

Deadbeat parents can simply refuse to set aside the nominal fee for their children´s meals, ignore repeated requests for payment, force the system into the only recourse it has, suspending service, and then complain that their poor children are being starved!

There is no solution to this until enough Americans get fed up enough to put a stop to it. That would seem to be a long way off - if it ever even comes.

We took our lunches. Packed at home by our Mother.

When we didn´t for some reason, we paid for our cafeteria lunch with money we carried.

But our parents could trust us to buy lunch with the money.

This is a family problem. I refuse to blame the schools who should be allowed to focus on education.

I am not surprised. The UEA has always been very nasty and radical. The rest of the state is just barely conservative (55%/45% - Mormon/non-Mormon population split), but the non-conservatives are VERY nasty!! They consider it practically a "religious duty" to "get in your face."

Don´t forget, little chilren, in 0bama´s Disunited States of 0bamaKKKa, if you like your lunch, you can keep your lunch.

Wasn´t there another incident where a child´s sack lunch (ham & cheese sandwich &a bag of chips?) was confiscated for not meeting moochelle´s dietary guidelines, and the child was fed chicken nuggets, for which the parents were billed?

Leave the schools alone!

They are now expected to raise children, feed them, and educate them. And take care of their "parents" as well.

The article explains what was done and why the food had to be discarded. Little Miss Isom and her mother do not look like they are starving, nor do they appear to have self-esteem problems.

A little humiliation never hurt anyone.

Harsh? You betcha. But it´s the real world, not the fantasy coddling cradle-to-grave cocoon that liberals would have it be.

Utah is a red state but Salt Lake City is blue enough to always elect a democrat mayor. Cities need more government because the people can´t police themselves as small communities can or try to just by heard instinct (?)

The students weren´t the poor up to 125% of poverty rate which qualify for free lunch. Those higher but still a bit in need have reduced price lunch but I am guessing many may have been in the upper incomes who just forgot.

In any case a black eye to the lunch room scrooges/grinches? Not that the man out front is probably apologizing and protecting some woman nutritionist. Give a woman a little power and how do some act? Butch even if they aren´t.

I like dealing with men. They are more apt to bend a rule in the name of reason. Women, not so much (unless you are a man?)

As mean as it may sound I do not have one ounce of sympathy for these children or their plight. My compassion for people in such circumstances was exhausted a long time ago. Their humiliating experience should serve as a life lesson in paying one´s due, and if anyone owes them an apology, it is their own irresponsible deadbeat parents. Not the school.

If you owned a Heating Oil company, and a bunch of deadbeat parents do not pay their heating bills for the winter, do you feel you should be responsible for their children´s comfort at the loss of your own personal livelyhood and provisions for your own family?

Never let yourself be pulled in by these emotional propaganda pieces that try to pull your heart strings. It´s this kinda of media trash over years that has led us to the bloated welfare state that we taxpayers and producers are being crushed under the weight of now... sympathy for "the children"..

Try again. Wiped out.

Kids should not be punished for their parents actions or inaction. With all of the free breakfast and lunches, why not give them the lunch of an absent student on the free system ? Too logical ?

Never remember buying lunch at school. The horrors of potted meat on white bread and lived to tell about it.

Actually they have pushed the school lunch program since the early 1950´s. I can remember my grade school pushing for me to get the "hot" lunches served by the school while I preferred sack lunches (peanut butter and jelly or honey, fruit, snack, milk, yum!). It actually got so far that I refused the hot lunch that they were trying to force on me (and make my mother pay for). This is just more of the same.

Of course by the time I was out of High School I WAS tired of brown bag. I wonder if that was because I was the one who had to fix it?

Anger is brewing among service members and veterans groups after the publication of a New York Times op-ed that tries to link veterans and white supremacists. The piece came just days after a 73-year-old white supremacist and veteran, Frazier Glenn Miller, was arrested in an attack that killed three people at a Jewish center in Overland Park, Kansas. In the column, op-ed contributor Kathleen Belew writes: In 2009, the Department of Homeland Security issued a nine-page report detailing the threat of domestic terrorism by the white power movement.

That was midway through the annual meeting held April 8 to 10 that attracted more than 1,500 food safety professionals, including staff from federal agencies as well as businesses such

The militants must refrain from violence, lay down their illegal weapons and return seized buildings to their rightful owners, Kerry said. In return, Ukraine agreed to offer amnesty to protesters who had not committed capital crimes. Kerry called the agreement “a good day’s work,” but warned that the United States would impose further sanctions on Russia if it didn’t see progress soon. “None of us leave here with the sense that the job is done because the

On a local website co-managed by Shaun Kenney, the newly appointed executive director of the Virginia GOP, a colleague of Kenney’s admitted last night that Kenney’s political fundraising and consulting firm is employed by House Majority Leader Eric Cantor. Cantor is now campaigning to retain his seat in Virginia’s 7th Congressional District. Cantor’s challenger for the GOP primary on June 10 — Dave Brat — is politically on Cantor’s right, and is thus receiving national interest from conservative/Tea Party groups that are disappointed with Cantor’s record as majority leader.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take.
