You're painting a well-defined black & white argument, that in fact contains quite a lot of gray.
No, scratch that!
Actually, the argument contains RED.
Q) What is the #1 reason behind why there are 16 million more people on food stamps since 2008?
A) The huge U.S. national debt (up almost 25% since 2008) continues to devalue the U.S. dollar making it increasing difficult for U.S. manufacturers to compete with asian manufacturers, particularly China. China artificially, drastically devalues its currency in order to bolster exports (in order to maintain continuous employment for 100's of millions of mainland Chinese. This artificial currency devaluation by the Chinese serves to undercut virtually all foreign competitors.
Now tie all of this to the hiring / firing of public school teachers.
...just blame bush.

There is absolutely nothing - zilch - zero wrong with the new public school menu. It generally tastes very good, is nutritionally sound and contains adequate amounts of fiber. So where does the problem lie?
The problem is the vast majority of these kids are conditioned to eat mommy & daddy's junk food beginning from the age they started watching Barney the Dinosaur. The problem is all of this junk food, snacks and over-processed crap in the average American's diet. In most American households today the standard nutritional quality of an average meal is far below what it was two generations ago. Today, fewer and fewer families value "family meal time" as quality time. Almost every parent seemingly has the same story. There is always too many things going on for everyone to be home at the same time to sit down and eat together...unless it's 10:00 PM in front of the TV. Habitual eating later in the evening is a recipe for blood sugar spikes that may lead to diabetes. Eating later often causes sleeplessness and problems staying awake the next day.
The average family shopper over time tends to be purchasing increasingly poorer qualities of food. Unfortunately, because of this continued infiltration of junk food, snack food and expensive, heavily-processed microwavable "meals", many school kids today might get to the opportunity to eat "whole food" in a family type setting maybe a few times a year at certain holidays.
Lots of diet improvements begin in the home if we want our kids to appreciate REAL food at school.
?Feed Your Brain states: "In most American households today the standard nutritional quality of an average meal is far below what it was two generations ago."

A bite of reality:……Two generations ago an average meal to "really feed the children" was provided by families caring first for their own children's needs while reaching out to the poor through their faith community in prayer to Our Father Who Is in Heaven ...Give US this day our daily bread....and deliver US from evil…..
Then along came the great society with claims to "wipe out the poor" through government intervention, into our homes around our dinner tables, and the "sharing of bread" in our religious and charitable institutions. Along with the “government bread” came the government indoctrination: "You can't build YOUR home and family WITHOUT government assistance; Just trust the government for "bread one day at a time" and You will never have economic opportunity to work for Your dignity of "providing for your own-for your own future." Your government will just “tax the rich”(who, by hiring the poor, offer the poor their ONLY hope for economic freedom from government assistance); then when the government “taxes the rich” down to poverty level, FINALLY life will be FAIR for ALL
No HOPE of working yourself and your family ABOVE the "poverty line" or you will be punished by losing your government "assistance for the poor" ... food stamps and health care for the kiddies. Now what kind of mean old parent will “hurt” the children by not taking a “helping hand” from the government who cares so much for the “poor” that they fold millions more Americans “into poverty “ every years by their failed economic policies of growing bigger and bigger government through high taxation while eliminating private sector jobs because employers simply cannot affort the ever increasing taxes imposed on Americans just because they are “financially successful.”

(But don’t worry…be happy... If you do find yourself and your loved ones "homeless" because you "owe your soul to the company store" you just MIGHT qualify for a free "cell phone" to stay in touch with the great society… don’t worry, be happy….
IF you don’t have a current driver’s license or official photo ID, YOU can still vote for HOPE that this is the election cycle that YOU will get your fair share of “CHANGE” from your “Rich Neighbors'pockets.)

I don't necessarily disagree with any of what you've posted. Regardless of the reason(s) why, this fact remains: During the last 40-50 years
general eating habits as well as the overall value of America's food has declined precipitously. Thank you very much for your assistance in proving my point.

Are you telling us that our boro parents are so busy running to and fro fundraising and selling "cookie dough" to boost dollars into their "wish lists for kids" that they don't have time for quality meal-time with their kids; so they just defer that job to the government to "feed the children?"

Howie, you must certainly be aware of the fact that $1 an hour of wages in some parts of the world catapults the recipient of those wages into the upper middle class in his country. Let us not assume everyone has the same basis costs and lifestyles we enjoy. Two different businesses in this country producing the same product can have vastly different cost structures. Blaming the guy with the lower cost structure for your choices gets you no where in a hurry. It also fails to correct the competitive imbalances that already exist. Better to adjust your modes of production to increase the per capita productivity, whether through trimming the fat or through the utilization of expertise, technology, and equipment to better compete.
Like it or not we have a brave new world staring us in the face and we can sit on our collective kiesters and complain or we can begin assessing our resources and begin figuring out how to beat them. I vote for the latter.

The same school board demanding accountability, asking tough questions and also the same heartless board who insisted on charging the Frechette family who just lost their 17 yr old son, one of our students,the building usage fee to use the high school for his service. This family is grieving and you couldn't waive this fee??! Doesn't it say in the contract this fee can be waived?! Thanks to Ron Malone for again coming to the rescue. Do you really care about these students or is it all about the money and your egos??!!This community is counting the days for you 3 heartless people to be out. We don't need people like you with your own agendas in this district. We have come together as a community and our number one goal will be to rebuild this school board with people who REALLY care about these students.
Who are the WE that "have come together" voting revenge against three good people?" Is this the same group of "WE" who have now rallied "three times" against these same "three good people" in "WE" attempts to gain for the Springboro Education Association more power and control our students "education money?"

Only coal in boro stockings for those supporting the failed agenda of "we are one with ron malone" campaign; voting revenge against good neighbors in our Springboro school district and community.
Could it be that some "people" like Ron Malone owes this community an apology for allowing his "representatives" to continue their bully attacks on this blog.

Zero minus 12 months to election day. It's time to start the nomination process!
(-;
Who do you suppose these two "reform-minded", concerned citizens might be? Dr. Kohls now has bigger irons in much larger fires.
What will Wendy Kull do? Was she thinking of running next year, or is she just filling in short-term to improve her resume? Might Doug Wiedeman consider running? Or no-taxJack Chrisman?
On the side that represents wholesale taxing and spending with little to no accountability to the public, I'd say Lisa Babb has a 99.44% certainty of running again because she is a notorious sore loser. Who else might run to back teachers union interests? Take your pick among the pretentious.
Because Lisa Babb IS a sore loser, she has NEVER stopped "running" her campaign of personal attacks against the winning agenda of our school board representatives who support our district's new philosophy of "children FIRST budgeting." And no doubt Ms. Babb will continue her arrogant denial that she was not chosen in 2011, during the year of 2013; just as she is doing throughout the 2012 year, falsely accusing the new board members of "making decisions that hurt our kids!"

Don't know much about the real "meat" of politics;(what do you mean that Kelly Kohls has bigger irons in much larger fires?);
but, while recognizing the achievements of our school district, under the leadership of Dr. Kohls in just three years as an elected official on the Board of Education, it is agreed that Springboro families and taxpaying homeowners WILL rally
tirelessly to re-elect Kelly Kohls in 2013 to serve our children's best interest four more years!
Springboro, we've only just begun! We cannot allow the "vote for revenge" in 2013 to REVERSE the achievements and success being made by our current 4-1 BOE majority in the best interest of our strong schools and our strong community!

If Lisa Babb feels the urge to make the call as to which board members "made decisions that hurt our kids", then she needs to look at the cloud from both sides. Scott Anderson's extremely hasty departure didn't do much to help our kids. Don Miller's current obvious state of boredom and apathy isn't doing a whole lot to help our kids. Can you imagine the heightened level of productivity Ms. Babb might bring to our board meetings?....;-)

All valid points. Anderson walks away, and is publically humiliated as a result. Kull is picked from nominees to finish his term. Wendy gets along well with everyone and is doing a tremendous job. Every other Tuesday evening Don Miller exudes the body language of a person wanting to be anyplace other than Springboro High School
Moving toward the 2013 board campaign season, I'd say things couldn't be looking much worse for Lisa Babb's overall agenda.
