Re Jon Tanners Oct. 14 cartoon:
I want to invite Tanner and anyone else on The News-Times staff for school lunch. Nowhere else can you get more than you pay for, especially in these economic times. For example, a recent days menu consists of fried chicken or steak nuggets, rice and gravy or fries, biscuit, blackeye peas, fruit and milk. Where else can you get all that for $1.25 for students and $2.25 for adults? We have deli subs and salads every day, as well as hot dogs and hamburgers. Our a la carte line has either pizza or spicy chicken. We also have a line that sells nothing but bottled drinks, chips, cookies and Rice Krispie treats. If you cant find something you want to eat a Greenbrier High School, youre not hungry.
I appreciated Barry Paschals column following Tanners cartoon; however, I cannot be assured that everyone who read that cartoon read the article.
I know that school lunch has always been fair game, but the times they have already changed. When I ate school lunch (so many years ago you wouldnt believe), we had two choices, take it or leave it. Al la carte was unheard of. All meals are analyzed for nutrient and fat content today.
So rest assured that if he comes for lunch at Greenbrier High School, Paschal will not have to eat crow as he stated. He will get a delicious and nutritious meal that is more than worth the money.
