  • Some county schools offer free lunch, breakfast

    They say there’s no such thing as a free lunch.
    That’s not really true, at least for students at Monongah, East Park and Watson elementary schools, thanks to the Community Eligibility Provision.
    The program is part of President Barack Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act and allows all students at those schools to eat breakfast and lunch for free, regardless of their families’ yearly income.
    A school can use the program if 40 percent or more of its students qualify for free or reduced lunch as of the 2012-13 academic year.

  • GAYLE MANCHIN SPEAKING -TS.jpg Manchin: Common Core ‘politicized’

     The state didn’t do a very good job of “telling the story” of Common Core standards, state school board president Gayle Manchin said Monday morning, which opened the door for an onslaught of public and administrative criticism of something few understand.
    And when you don’t tell your story, Manchin explained, someone else is sure to and they may not get it right. And that’s what she believes has happened with the message of Common Core — inaccurate social media posts, online petitions against the standards, pages dedicated to protesting them.

  • Monongah water plant receives positive report

    The Town of Monongah’s water plant has received a positive report — with no violations — from the state.
    On June 17, the water plant underwent its annual inspection by the state. Because of a loss of people that the water system serves, due to population drop with people moving away, Monongah was not required to collect as many samples for the recent inspection, said Bill McCombs, councilman and operator for the town’s water plant.
