NC Senate responds to chicken nuggets school case

Thursday, May 31st, 2012

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — North Carolina lawmakers are reacting to a recent chicken-nuggets lunchroom controversy that raged on conservative talk shows and web sites by banning school officials from looking at the nutritional balance of home-packed meals.

The state Senate on Thursday unanimously approved legislation that would block child care facilities from providing foods or drinks to children whose parents are sending them with packed lunches.

A pre-kindergarten teacher at a Hoke County school resigned this spring after telling three 4-year-olds in her class that their homemade lunches didn’t entirely meet federal guidelines for well-balanced meals. School officials said the teacher should have rounded out the children’s packed lunches with a carton of milk or whatever else was lacking, but instead the children got cafeteria meals that included chicken nuggets.

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Beryl is out of here for good. Fortunately all we got was some good soaking rain and gusty winds. There were some reports of downed trees and power lines, which is likely because the ground was so wet and there were wind gusts around 40 mph. Here’s a look at some of the impressive wind gusts and rain totals from Beryl’s stay here in southeastern North Carolina:

Wind Gusts: Bald Head Island – 50 mph; Wilmington – 45 mph; Sunny Point – 43 mph; Wrightsville Beach – 43 mph
