City schools chief: Discovery of expired food 'serious' ...
Anonymous wrote - Scary! Curious how many people have been violently ill with food poisoning? If they knew about the problem, why did it take so long to be exposed? I wouldn't want to live with that guilt.
On the cheap wrote - You better believe I buy that marked down meat other food at the grocery store. Fine with me and it saves me 50 percent or more. No problem with eating it or serving to friends and family
Fairze wrote - The free lunch program reinforces bad eating habits for our children and quite frankly makes me question who is making money off of expired food.
Sick of it wrote - If this was Cobb County there'd be a public hanging. But no, it's Marietta City the untouchables.
Cobb Native wrote - I agree with Sick of it. They found something wrong with Marietta schools for a change! Goes to show the snoots don't always win!
Another Marietta mom wrote - It all comes from the same warehouse, and only 2 of the schools have "working" kitchens, where the food is prepared. It is then sent to the other schools to be served. So it doesn't matter where your child goes to school in the city. They were served expired food and that is unacceptable!
Dumpster Diver wrote - I imagine there is a lot of expired food in the Cobb School System dumpsters this evening.
Mad-one wrote - It's really easy to demand the freshest, highest quality food for our babies. Now try to execute that standard with a lunch time meal cost of $1.80 and then serve a high percentage of the meals for free. Good luck!
What the!? wrote - Expiration dates don't necessarily indicate expiration. Expiration dates are more useful as indicators of food's optimum taste, rather than its safety. I'm gonna go eat some Pop-Tarts that I bought last year that are hiding in the back of the cupboard. My guess is they are still really good.
Hungry Jack wrote - I am curious to know who ("management") the Clotfelters tried to tell about this as reported in the article. Did they ever share their info with Dr. Lembeck, or just elect to go direct to the media?
Disgruntled wrote - OMG! If Mr. Clotfelter is so worried about the safety of the children, why not tell the higher ups in the district BEFORE going to the news? Don't wait years and then call CBS News!
SLbyby wrote - Stale, expired and spoiled are all very different. Come on CBS, you can do better than this!
Food lover wrote - Hmm. Why did Clotfelter not go above his boss's head, if nothing was done about it? Instead of going to the CEO or Board, he went to CBS NEWS!? What's wrong with this picture?
Bravo1 wrote - It's refreshing to see a Superintendent and Board Chair take and issue head on and not make excuses or duck-n-run. Cobb should be taking lessons!
Comrade Czsazkr wrote - OMG! You are looking at the Marietta Schools and not Cobb schools? I know the temperature dropped the last two days, but has hell frozen over?
Marietta mom wrote - This is so disgusting and unsettling. I think we should all boycott the cafeterias until this situation gets corrected. Heads should roll. And, where were the health inspectors?
Marietta Student wrote - I remember when there was a rat the size of a possum in the cafeteria in the morning. I asked the rat if he wanted some food and he said, "Heck no, all the food is horrible, plus I can't stand expired milk." So he scurried behind the vending machine.
Review reveals problems with streetlight fund...
Watcher wrote — The REFUNDS should be processed immediately.
Tea Party 2010 wrote — Yea, just another $4 then $10 for hospital tax on tag. Now special use tag is $35 each year, and by the way firearms license is $75 instead of $18, you have to get finger printed each time as well. That’s not much just $154 for a few items; it’s always easier to spend other people’s money.
Dustoff wrote — Gee maybe the Grand Jury should look into this. So I have been paying $3.50 for over 15 years and now find out the money was being diverted to other uses. Well boys your SPLOST vote from me is now a big NO!
MariettaBoy wrote — Now don’t this just beat all ... to think that some people want to give the City of Marietta a hard time for trying to save $300,000 over three years by establishing a health clinic for employees and retirees while at the same time the County has been misappropriating the surplus of a $4.3 million per year streetlight fund for about the past 30 years! I don’t see Larry Wills’ name in this article and I guess it’s because Larry doesn’t have a “beef” with the county, so he doesn’t care about it. Guess what Larry? You can’t blame Bill Bruton with this one.
NorthCobbResident wrote — After all the poormouthing our county government has done to get us to vote for the last SPLOST and now we find out they basically had a $4.3 million per year slush fund. You can’t tell me David Hankerson, Virgil Moon and elected officials didn’t know. This is outrageous and someone should either resign or have their employment terminated. I will never ever vote for another SPLOST.
The usual wrote — Look, Commissioner Sam Olens had to pay for our new grass at the golf course and those donkeys and electric cars at the safety village, so get off our backs. It’s just 4 bucks a month and you spend more than that on coffee.
