Dear old gold rules day

Posted By on Tue, Aug 19, 2008 at 1:41 PM

Being a codger, I shook my head while reading the recent articles on school lunch prices -- $2 at the elementary level and $2.25 secondary in the LR School District. Seems like it was 15 cents when I enrolled in Hamilton Elementary way back when.

Anyway, I wondered how people scrape up $10 a week for each of perhaps several children.

And now comes this: the LR School District has entered the computer world. You can go on-line and put money on your kid's lunch card with a credit card. Lunches on revolving credit at 30 percent APR and up. Scary.
