Oakley chamber of com Federal cuts affect school lunches by Lisa Twyman and Christie Evans reports emanating from Washington indicate Federal Cut backs Are going to be a Way of life in the 1980s. Specifically the omnibus reconciliation act a nutrition program cutback passed by Congress dec. 3, is forcing school dieticians to contend with this newest reality Early in the game. According to dieticians in both the Cincinnati and. Mariemont districts the Challenge before them is to continue providing Quality meals with less Money. Both also hint at future hikes in the Price of lunches As an economic inevitability. Judey Schott who oversees the Mariemont. District s menu said the Federal Cut was not unexpected. In fact the District had allowed for some kind of Federal Rollback when the budget was designed last summer. As a result she said at this time she does not anticipate a Rise in. Lunch prices in Mariemont but added that a this May have to be reevaluated next current lunch prices in Mariemont Are 75 cents for grades 1-8 and 85 cents for the High school. To underline the dependence of local school districts on Federal subsidies. Schott said a if All the Money was pulled out tomorrow a lot of programs would just be dropped. Either that or it would be just As expensive As eating in any in dollars and cents this translates into federally reimbursed Money coupled with government donated foods foods bought by the government and sold at Cut rate costs to school systems accounting for 17-25 percent of the Mariemont lunch budget. As for concerns of future menus reflecting the tightening Federal purse strings Schott seemed to be taking it All in stride. She said rising prices and budget constraints Are nothing new to her and cited ground beef As a Case in Point. She noted that the Price of beef is becoming prohibitively expensive even with the government a s help. Quot As a result she said ground beef appears on the menu less frequently with Chicken Turkey and pork taking up the Slack. Schott said if Money is continually whittled away it will require More creative menu planning and students May see More cheese dishes. However she emphasized that a there will he not cuts in Quality parents and students simply wont stand for meanwhile in Cincinnati schools a or. Chester Preyar director of food services said that the Board of education had been considering a Rise in meal prices due to inflation before Federal cuts were announced. With the reduction he said there is now More of a need to raise the prices. At the Fel 3 finance committee meeting it was proposed to raise the Price from 35 cents a plate to 50 cents. Included in the proposal is an additional 20 cent increase in. September bringing the total then to 70 cents. This is pending approval of the meeting of the full Board which met yesterday after press time. Bob Bacon nutritional coordinator of the Cincin i Nati Arch Diosan schools said that he Felt the cuts in nutrition programs were irn fair to students ail of whom need a Good lunch a a Bacon said that he foresees a possible petition to eliminate the reductions but none of the parents in the Public schools have discussed the matter to Date. Bacon said he thought the parochial schools would be hit harder by the cuts than the Public schools. The cuts in nutrition programs for children in schools and child care centers will amount to More than $390 million. This represents approximately a 2.5 cent per meal reduction in Federal reimbursements. First District Cong. Willis Gradison said he is in favor of the legislation a was an Effort to control spending a adding that the omnibus act would trim the Federal budget deficit by 8.2 billion in the 1981-82 school year. Seemingly summing up the of dieticians grappling with the shrinking Money Supply. Judy Schott said. A of course no one likes the cuts hut in a afraid we re going to see More of them. Actually Mayhe it s not All bad a maybe it is time we All learn to tighten our belts a. Merce have been researching ways to transform the boarded abandoned building on Madison Road into an integral part of the Oakley business District. The result was Curc which was delegated the responsibility for the former Oakley school. Oct Rcd a first task was to secure funds to undertake a feasibility study for redevelopment of the building and buy the option on the building from the school Board. The total Price tag on the project amounted to $24,000. The City agreed to pay $10,000 if Oakley would be responsible for the difference. Curc Quot agreed and Tony Palazzolo who serves on the corporation s Board said the group approached the dept of development and requested the $14,000 from the commercial Industrial revolving loan fund. Palazzolo1 explained that historically the fund has been used by groups such As the Madisonville housing service which uses the Money to buy dilapidated Homes and supplies to rehabilitate its neighbourhoods. Then when the Homes Are resold the loan is paid Back and remaining profits Are used to buy More Homes and thereby fuel the redevelopment process. However Curc was not requesting the Money in order to Purchase tangible assets such As a building which could be repossessed should the Community s efforts fail. Instead Curc wanted the Money to subsidize the a feasibility study and could offer no collateral on the loan. The coordinator of the commercial Industrial revolving loan fund suggested that there might be other sources for the Oakley project and denied the request. So at the Jan 6 Ora Hoard meeting the group voted unanimously to ask the City to divert the $14,000 from the $238,000 already earmarked for phase i of the Oakley Street scape improvements. In his letter to Cincinnati mayor David Mann. Ora president Bob Dwyer wrote Quot to remain in the bidding and continue negotiations with the Cincinnati school Board this Money is needed immediately. A. We Are confident that the prospects for a Well conceived use of the school building Are Worth this six percent reduction in the scope of the Street scape at the Jan. 27 meeting of the City a Urban development committee of Council this request was held for a school Board report. This developed a catch-22 even Joseph Heller would envy. Without the school Board report the committee would not make its recommendation and without the Money the school Hoard could not consider the Curc bid competitive with the other two bidders. At this Point Luck intervened in the person of councilman Walter Beckjord who was in Oakley feb. 2 to install the officers of Curc. He continued on Page 2 on Edge Cliffe Campus news Bra efs citizen groups rally Mariemont teachers file in the Wake of the mass teacher firings two weeks ago two Community groups have emerged in the Mariemont school District.
