Zipay told the news site lunch cooks have had the same problem, and can’t even serve a turkey sandwich to students because there’s too much sodium. There is now a two-slice limit on salami.

The snack regulations have also caused problems for school fundraisers in numerous districts because the regulations apply to any food sold at school during school hours. Cookies and other traditional bake sale fare is too fatty, or has too much sugar to make the cut.

Georgia recently allowed districts to apply for an exemption from the snack rules which essentially allow schools to sell food for fundraisers without regard to nutritional content during about half of the school year.

Nebraska apparently has a similar exemption process in place for school fundraisers for the next two years, but bake sale food likely will be banned after that, the news site reports.

Prepare for a Major Power Outage This Winter
Published Tue, Sep 2, 2014 | Tim Maverick, Staff Writer
Coal-Burning Power Plants Close: Prepare for Blackouts
With another polar vortex looming, the public should prepare for potential blackouts caused by the Obama administration’s plans to shut down coal-fired power plants.
You see, the record-breaking lows of last winter put a never-before-seen strain on the energy grid.
In fact, the grid nearly imploded last January, but thanks to back-up power supplied by less-frequently used coal-burning plants, it survived.
Now, though, Obama has scheduled these plants to be shut down before the start of winter.
January 2014: A Close Call
The PJM Interconnection is a regional electric transmission organization that serves a large swath of the United States from New Jersey to Illinois.
On January 7, 2014, it saw the largest-ever peak winter load of nearly 142,000 megawatts. In the rest of that month alone, 8 of the top 10 peak winter loads for PJM occurred.
PJM survived thanks to old, coal-fired power plants that are scheduled to be shut down by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) soon.
“Eighty-nine percent of the coal electricity capacity that is due to go offline was utilized as that backup to meet the demand this winter,” said Alaska Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski at a Senate hearing in April.
Forecast: Clean and Bitterly Cold
Unfortunately, for most of us in the eastern United States, many of the best meteorologists now say we should prepare for “Polar Vortex, the Sequel” this winter. Like last winter, intense cold and lots of snow are expected.
About 12,000 megawatts of coal-fired capacity are scheduled to be retired in January 2015 to fulfill regulations established five years ago.
Most of those coal-fired power plants are owned by American Electric Power (AEP ), the country’s biggest owner of coal-burning power plants. AEP is being forced to close down almost a quarter of its coal-fired generating plants over the next 10 months.
This will reduce the total capacity available for some of the country’s most densely populated regions just when the weather may once again push the demand for power to unprecedented levels.
AEP’s Chief Executive Officer, Nicholas Akins, told Congress last April,“This country did not just dodge a bullet [this winter]– we dodged a cannonball.”
Even the Commissioner of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, Philip Moeller, believes the electric grid in parts of the country is “now already at the limit.”
This is not good news with regulations removing some of that already-strained generation capacity.
Will Common Sense Prevail?
AEP believes the EPA could be willing to extend the shutdown deadline date. But, the company also says that environmental groups will likely bring lawsuits under the Clean Air Act, forcing closures regardless.
Unless environmental groups give coal-powered plants a reprieve, a blackout is almost guaranteed in the event of another polar vortex winter.
Hopefully, the vortex stays out of town this winter. But if it doesn’t, look at the bright side: That frigid air you’ll be breathing is a little bit cleaner.
And “the chase” continues,
Tim Maverick
Funny Chit. I saw read a EIA chart that showed expected electricity generation in 2015 to be higher than 2014.

Gov. Sam Brownback, speaking to reporters Wednesday, said the bond rating agencies "don't like the overall flow of cutting taxes," but he and legislative leaders are committed to continuing to do so.
“It’s hard to break the addiction to high taxes," Brownback said in an interview recorded by a 580 WIBW Radio reporter. "It’s hard to do, but we need to do it to create growth.”
Moody's said it issued its downgrade because Kansas' economic recovery was sluggish compared with other states and legislators had been turning to temporary "nonrecurring" revenue sources to balance budgets while spending more than the state is projected to take in taxes.
Moody's also cited the state's underfunded Kansas Public Employees Retirement system in May, but that system, while still underfunded, received a positive report last month that showed the funding trajectory improving because of bullish market returns and increased contributions from the state.
Tax revenues came in hundreds of millions of dollars lower than projected in April, May and June, leaving the state with little margin for error to have enough funds to implement the budget passed by legislators in April.
Tax collections rebounded to just above projections in July, but even if that trend holds, the next Legislature will need to enact some combination of spending cuts or tax increases for the budget that begins in July 2015, because deficit spending is projected to suck reserve funds dry by then.
tax increases. only logical at this point. even Reagan saw the truth in that. 11 times.

if he hadn't cut taxes he would be the King of The Economy. but as we all now know.....Obama is the man.

WRONG.....ANG units are ASSIGNED to MOST Air Force major Commands....
'The Air National Guard's federal mission is to maintain well-trained, well-equipped units available for prompt mobilization during war and provide assistance during national emergencies (such as natural disasters or civil disturbances). During peacetime, the combat-ready units and support units are assigned to most Air Force major commands to carry out missions compatible with training, mobilization readiness, humanitarian and contingency operations such as Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan.'

Aah but now you are retracting your ignorance, you never said that some ANG were attached or assigned to the USAF liar, besides being attached does not make you a member of the USAF no more than an infantry man attached to a tank division makes him a tanker.You seem stuck on stupid which is obviously fueled by your extreme hatred..You do realize that is unhealthy huh Tubba?

The pound has slumped to a 10-month low after the yes campaign took the lead in the opinion polls just 10 days before the Scottish independence vote.
Westminster leaders will on Monday scramble to agree an offer of more powers to Scotland if it remains within the union in an effort to prevent a yes vote in next week's referendum.
But what the chancellor, George Osborne,described as "a credible timetable and process" to develop further devolved powers did not prevent a wave of early selling on the foreign exchanges on Monday morning.
Sterling fell sharply, losing almost one and a half cents against the US dollar to reach $1.618, the lowest level since November 2013.
The surge of support for independence also sent jitters through the stock market, as shares in companies with large Scottish interest suffered sharp falls in early trading.
David Cameron will not travel to Scotland this week to campaign, but party leaders will make a joint declaration soon on the timetable for the further transfer of powers from Westminster to Scotland, the UK prime minister's spokesman said.

PHILADELPHIA (AP)— People who are repeatedly caught driving under the influence in Pennsylvania are more likely than many other states to remain behind the wheel, a newspaper is reporting.

The Philadelphia Inquirer said Sunday Pennsylvania doesn't mandate ignition interlock devices for first-time DUI cases, and doesn't immediately suspend licenses of defendants who fail sobriety tests.

The paper says a 5-year-old court opinion means drivers must be convicted of DUI before being charged as a repeat offender.

Police can sometimes fail to charge driving suspended along with DUI, a charge that can significantly increase jail time.

The paper says Philadelphia prosecutors and judges are comparatively lenient with repeat offenders.

The Inquirer says somewhere between 2,000 and 6,000 people in Pennsylvania have four or more drunken driving convictions over the past 20 years.

In fact, Obama reminded me of a little kid who knew he broke the lamp but kept egging on his best friend to lie for him about it to his parents. Crowley was his best friend in that debate. How embarrassing for the country this was a presidential candidate.
