Just as a point... I have seen first hand kids that wear rosary beads due to their gang affiliation, usually MS-13, but also SSL. The beads in question are usually blue or light blue for MS-13. It is used as a subtle way for the kid to show he is affiliated without the need for wearing colors.
And while this kid might not be in a gang, do you really think he's going to admit to it when questioned by a teacher or a reporter?
And also, I always thought that you are not supposed to wear rosary beads.
If Amy Winehouse can wear them, it must be OK.
I believe it's the number of beads...13 for MS-13, and regular rosaries have 10.
Lady in Ontario, Canada wants all the school's oak trees cut down because her kid is allergic to nuts.
Come on, please go away and leave the rest of us alone, ma'am!
PS - She "heads the school’s allergy committee". Who the heck has an "Allergy Committee"!!!
Good thing the kid is not allergic to water.
We might have to cut all the Oak trees in all schools.
What about grass allergies— and blacktop or concrete allergies?? No recess, no ball playing.
I know whole civilizations were dependent on acorns, but did you ever taste one that hadn't been cooked? Yuk.
Those tribes summering in Yosemite, to mention a few.
But cooked acorns isn't exactly a gourmet feast....:lol: unless it's a minor ingredient in stuffing for a nice roasted turkey.
Nuts and berries? Yech!
That's crazy. We need to find a middle ground. People need to realize that some allergies cause more dangerous symptoms than pollen etc does. But acorns wouldn't do it, even if thrown at someone.
Or that acorns are not allergenic for peanut allergy types.
I read that northern CA was an acorn based civilization. Those severe fires that are common in CA destroyed most trees, but oaks seem to stand up well in fires.
I've never had a cooked acorn, but one bite into a raw acorn is enough to put anyone off. Of course a lot of plants are inedible or poisonous if not cooked.
You definitely won't get an allergy if somebody did throw an acorn at you
The parents are delinquent with their account balance so their kids get punished. That's just wrong.
While someone at the school is basically an idiot, at least there's this:
Two things in play here...
If the parents are supposed to be paying, and they are not paying... then it should be appropriate not to give those kids lunch it seems. I mean, if you go to McDonald's and place an order you have to pay before you get your food... if you can't pay, you don't get your food. It seems like the school could handle this better so that food has not been given to students before payment has been verified.
To me the stupid part is... they have already given the food to the kids... so to take it and throw it away and then give the kids something else to eat seems absurd. They are needlessly wasting food in that scenario.
While it might seem mean to not feed a kid who had a parent that didn't pay... it would be less mean and less wasteful to handle that up front.
I do feel for kids in this scenario... and I'm in favor of the lunch programs that help kids get at least the one good meal per day... but this doesn't sound like that... this sounds like a pre-payment program for kids so their parents can pre-pay... so if those parents don't pre-pay it isn't quite the same as a kid whose parents can't pay at all.
