Buckeye Technologies
Inc. last week announced
record sales and earnings
for fiscal year 2012.
Net sales for the year
(adjusted to exclude
discontinued Americana,
Brazil operations) were
$895 million, a new record
and up $14 million or 2
percent compared to fiscal
2011, as higher selling prices
offset a sales reduction due
to the divestiture of the King
converting business and
lower shipment volumes

from both the Foley wood
specialty mill and the
nonwovens business.
Adjusted net income for
the 2012 fiscal year was
a record $111 million, or
$2.76 per share, compared
to $91 million or $2.23
per share in fiscal 2011.
The growth in adjusted
net income was due to
significantly higher selling
prices for Buckeye's high-
end specialty wood and
cotton fiber products which
more than offset the impact

of lower fluff pulp prices.
Net income also benefitted
in fiscal year 2012 from
reduced selling, research
and administrative expenses
and lower interest expense.
Fourth quarter adjusted
net income was $26.2
million or $0.66 per share.
This excludes net after-tax
charges of $2.8 million, or
$0.08 per share, primarily
relating to the sale of the

al Expressing gratitude to the

SJacksons for the memories

Dear Editor:
When I begin thinking
about the good ole days, I
can't even begin to go down
that memory lane without
being grateful to some of
my best friend's parents.
Parents like Mr. and Mrs.
James Jackson. I have the
fondest memories of parties
at their home. Why did they
open their home to a rowdy
group of teenagers? I am
talking about teenagers from
Perry, Florida. I believe I

learned to hula hoop, twist
board and dance there in the
Jackson home.
I can remember Mr.
Jackson doing the jitterbug
with Julie, his daughter.
Others like Janet and
Virginia would jitter with
Mr. Jackson in the middle of
their family room too. I am
sure there were others that
did the jitterbug with Mr.
Jackson, but it is a sweet
vivid memory that I can call
up any time I need to feel

Why is that memory
special? Well when you think
of professional men these
days, men that are sturdy
men of the community, can
you see them dancing with
their daughter's friends?
I never learned how to
do the jitterbug, but I bet
it wouldn't take me long
because I have that memory
I could recall.

To the winners,

and the losers...

On behalf of the citizenry of
Taylor County, we would like
to express our appreciation
to those candidates who put
their personal lives on hold
while pursuing offices for city
and county elections.
We know the process can
be grueling, and sometimes
uncomfortable. We regret that
elections can lean toward
name-calling, but believe that
instead of that, we should
be grateful that there are
individuals who are willing to
seek public office and act as
our official representatives.
So we say, "Thank you."
Democracy only works if we
are all willing to participate
in the system. -We hope you

did your part by running
for an office or by voting
for the candidates of your
In case you missed one of
our favorite quotes in Friday's
edition: "Bad officials are
elected by good citizens who
do not vote."
If you didn't vote, don't
If you did vote or you did
agree to share a part of your
life with this community by
serving in an elected position,
thank you.
Effective government has
a chance when committed
individuals seek the honor
and the privilege, not just the
salary and the perks.

Dear Editor:
I'm writing this letter to
talk to you about a matter
that a lot of people in
Perry are concerned about.
They are wondering why
our school superintendent
and also the school
board members are more

concerned about what kind
of clothing or brand name
the students are wearing to
school than the importance
of what the students are
being taught.
Now the superintendent
has made the dress code
even stricter for the children

Member Perryifaylor County Chamber of Commerce /

this year. If you take a
second and look at how
much the school grade has
dropped since 2007 until
now in 2012, all B schools
and since this whole dress
code ordeal came about and
being more worried about
that now our schools are D
The high school has an
incomplete for the school
so far. I believe the school
needs to stop focusing so
hard on what the children
are wearing and start
focusing on getting these
kids the education they
desperately need for their
futures. The parents of Perry
feel that if they are wearing
clothing that covers up all
the appropriate places then it
shouldn't matter what kind
of clothing they wear.
To us it just seems that
the school district is trying
so hard to make everyone
equal that the kids are losing
interest in what they learn in
school. We the parents of
these children are asking
the superintendent and the
school board to please stop
focusing on the clothing
and get back to teaching our
children and preparing them
for their future.
Thank you,
Wesley White

primarily due to a 20 percent
increase in shipment volume
in the nonwovens segment.
Adjusted EPS of $0.66
was down $0.01 versus the
third quarter as increased
shipment volume, favorable
shipment mix and falling
cotton linter prices mostly
offset the $0.06 negative
impact of the June outage at
Chairman and Chief
Executive Officer John
B. Crowe said, "Fiscal
year 2012 was another

year of record sales and
earnings. During the
year, we continued to
generate significant cash
flow, allowing us to invest
in high rate of return
capital projects, return
cash to our shareholders
through dividends and
share repurchases, and
essentially eliminate
our debt. With a strong
operating performance and
actions taken to address
underperforming assets,
we delivered a return on
invested capital (ROIC)
in fiscal year 2012 of 16.5
percent, well above our cost
of capital. While Buckeye is
well positioned to continue
to increase shareholder
value, we believe that global
economic uncertainty may
generate a headwind for us
in fiscal 2013."
Crowe said the company's
fourth quarter results were
significantly impacted by
the steam drum failure and
resulting production outage
at the Foley facility in late
June. "Returning both
lines to operation in just
17 days was a remarkable
accomplishment by our
organization," he said.
Buckeye also announced
last week that its board of
directors declared a regular
quarterly cash dividend in
the amount of $0.08 per
common share payable

Letters to the Editor

'They have no idea how many they influenced'

Continued from page 2
Who would have thought
that our group, class of 66,
could be so special and
have such good times? Mrs.
Jackson always had lots of
food; I mean why did she
feed us all the time? We
could bring our newest 45
RPM singles, spin them on
the record player and dance
away there, right smack dab
in the middle of their family
room. I can't remember
how big of a mess we may
have made, but just think
about it?
Records all over the floor,
chips and dip, great food
and Pepsi Cola, right Janet?
What fabulous parents. The
story does not end there.
I mean those parties I just
mentioned were just the up-
town parties. The Jacksons
had a farm and a fabulous
barn. We would often go
there too for the best of
times. I mean dancing the
bop (early years), the twist,
slow dancing, and improve
(make up your own). We
enjoyed the cool nights of
the summer with the faint
smell of freshly cut hay.
I really can't remember
how I was transported to that
farm; maybe the Jacksons
took us over there in a van,
but what a family! I always
knew Mrs. Jackson would
have a word of wisdom and
encouragement for me. She
always was building me up
in a special way with such
a smile and I could see the
sparkle of wisdom in her
eyes. I saw the affirmative
nod in the positive when
she was talking to me, so
of course I believed her.
She would constantly point
out to us how energetic
and smart we all were. So I
believed her.
There is no way any of
us could ever repay these
great parents for what they
sacrificed. Did their own
two children resent having
a menagerie of teens in the
middle of their family life?
I felt like one of their kids,
I really did, sorry Julie and
Steve, but I felt a part of
your family and so glad your
mother and father allowed
me into that family ring for
so long. The memories that
were shaped so long ago
are still so alive and I am
thankful for parents like the
Jacksons. I am grateful for
having a friend like Julie
that had parents willing to
help raise the village!
I am sure their philosophy
and love for Julie and Steve
was to be involved in what
their children were doing as
much as possible. So they
supervised and chaperoned
us all in the process. I am
so grateful for parents that
included so many other
children in their Christian
life. I never once heard
these two married people
argue or say a cross word to
each other or to us. Now, I
do want you to think about
that fact. Not one word ill


to speak

at library


spoken, every word that
was ever spoken in all those
gatherings was a word of
encouragement to each
other, to their children or
to the 15 or so of us lucky
enough to be included.
I bet Mrs. Jackson has no
idea of how many people
she influenced with her gift
of hospitality. I so often
think of those times and
want to thank her from the
bottom of my heart. I see her
now and she still has those

sparkly eyes of wisdom and
she always compliments
me and I believe her
encouraging words and am
uplifted. Thank you Mrs.
Oh, it may seem like I
am running my own super
parents down, but not so.
I had a few parties at my
home too. But you notice I
said a few. My parents had
five children so our parties
did get penciled in on the
calendar, but in actual

events not near as often as
parties at the Jacksons'. I
guess that is why I am so
grateful. 1 mean 1 am a Nana,
now (seems like yesterday
that I was watching that
jitterbug) and I did not have
as many parties or social
get-togethers like Mr. and
Mrs. Jackson did for my
own children. I know the
cost, the aggravation, the
planning, the drama, the
worries of parties, so again
I am in awe of the Jacksons.


Growing up in a
small town may have its
drawbacks and negative
data findings in surveys,
but growing up with the
Jacksons balanced those
figures and I am grateful for
the memories. And I know
what was sacrificed so I
do say thanks. Mr. Jackson
is already in heaven, may
be jitterbugging up there,
but I pay tribute to that
great husband and wife,
mother and father, and

great community builders. I
believe there are many other
families in Perry who are
doing the same things right
now. Involving friends of
their children in activities
these children would not
have otherwise. So I salute
you too, whoever you are.
Keep up the good work. The
memories and gratitude will
not go unnoticed on earth or
Thanks again,
Bonnie Jo Wells

Dr. John {. Parer, Jr.

the many expressions of sympathy, along with the
numerous offerings of prayers, flowers and food, following
the loss of our father, Dr. John H. Parker, Jr.

care of him in the DMH Outpatient Treatment area; Amy,

We were touched by the number of people who came
forward to recall their memories of our father. It was
suggested that we should compile a journal of these

recollections from his former patients, colleagues, friends
and family members in the Taylor County community.

friends and acquaintances who are willing to share their
personal stories of our father, Dr. John H. Parker, Jr. If you

Southerland to

host Town Hall

meeting here

this Thursday

Representative Steve Southerland II will host a town hall
meeting in Perry Thursday, Aug. 16.
The Taylor County forum, which will be held at City
Hall, is free and open to the public. The meeting will begin
at 3 p.m.
Constituents with questions regarding the town hall
meeting are asked to contact Lori Hutto with Southerland's
Tallahassee office by calling (850) 561-3979 or e-mailing
On Saturday, Aug. 11, Southerland issued a statement
announcing his "enthusiastic support of (presidential
candidate) Gov. Mitt Romney's selection of U.S. Rep.
Paul Ryan for vice president," stating: "Gov. Romney's
selection of Paul Ryan as his running mate reflects his
genuine commitment to tackling the economic challenges
facing America. I have served with Paul for two years in
Congress, in fact our offices are right down the hall from
one another, and I have come to respect him as a thoughtful
and principled leader who won't shy away from the fight
to advance freedom. Gov. Romney's willingness to make
bold decisions will serve our country well when he's elected
president in November."

This thought brings
to mind several fond
memories from childhood
and memories in the making
every day of my life.
I look at photos of family
and friends, all of us in
unity as we stare at the
camera with our brightest
smiles, yet if you look

closely there is variety.
Most of the time we play
the "who do you favor?"
game while looking at
the photos. We pick out
the similar characteristics
between relatives giving us
a feeling of being connected
to a person who might have
lived years before we did.
Close, but not the same.
It reminds me of the
snowflakes and how
different they are. While
they are falling in unity, it

appears to be a white curtain
of coldness.
But, if you take a handful
of flakes and place it under
the microscope, you will see
definite differences. I have
been told there are never
two of the same design.

When I was eight years
old, I took piano lessons
from Mrs. Evans. At the end
of the year she held a recital
at First Baptist Church for

her students.
Mama bought pink
organdy material and
created a "Cinderella dress"
for me to wear during
the performance. All the
participants were dressed
up for the occasion. We had
our recital piece memorized
from beginning to ending.
We all took our turn at
the piano. We wanted to
play the piece perfectly

Memories of marching band bring Dean Mann to mind...

Continued from page 8
make our parents and Mrs.
Evans proud of us. The
beautiful sounds filling
the church sanctuary were
in unity but it showed the
variety of our talents by the
style of music chosen for us
to play. It was a milestone in
my life. In fact, I can play
the piece with perfection to
this present day.
Of course being a child of
the Taylor County beaches.
there was barely a week that
went by when we weren't

fishing. Whether standing
by the creeks or in the boat
out on the Gulf, we caught a
variety of fish.
I smile often at the
memory of Daddy holding
up a string of fish that would
soon be unified in the frying
The sight of children
with their hand on their
heart as they recite the
Pledge of Allegiance is one
of the greatest examples
of unity with variety. It
is such an integral part of
my upbringing. No matter
where I am, I stand with

them, place my hand over
my heart and recite the
Another great memory
is when my brother Ted
played saxophone in the
high school band.
Dressed in the blue and
orange of the school colors
he marched side-by-side
with fellow students in
parades down Main Street
in Perry.
They marched with
precision in unity, thanks to
their excellent band director,
Mr. Dean Mann. The sound
coming from the variety

of instruments blended
to produce an awesome
melody that had the parade
watchers clapping their
hands and tapping their feet
in time to the music. As I
said, it was a clear case of
"Unity with Variety."
Our Praise Team is in the
process of recording our first
CD. It is a journey of starts
and stops as we record, mix,
play back and redo.
I have dreams about
watching the producer from
my position at the keyboard
as he counts down and
points his finger toward

me giving me the signal to
begin playing. With three
guitars, drums, keyboard
and five singers needing to
start in unity, we miss the
signal sometimes and the
sound is more on the variety
side than the unity side.
That's when silent prayer
is sent toward heaven and
we try again.
The sound produced by
10 individuals is one of
unified variety bringing
honor to God who gave us
the talent.
Another wonderful
example is my lily

flowerbed. It is a diamond
shaped bed of perhaps 16"
x 8".
It is a hodgepodge of lilies
in a variety of colors. When
they bloom in unity the sight
is breathtaking. The variety
is still there, but the unity is
glorious to behold.
God gave us variety as
humans. It makes us who
we are.
But, He also gives us
unity to achieve goals, to
produce beautiful sounds,
to share the wonder of our
world. It's the way God
designed us.

Parents are reminded

of dress code changes

This summer, the Taylor
County School Board
approved a series of changes
to the student standard of
dress for the 2012-13 school
year, tightening a number
of provisions including the
type of t-shirts students can
wear as well as more closely
defining the allowable
For t-shirts, they must
now be crew-neck shirts
with no v-neck or scoop-
neck t-shirts allowed.
Last school year, students
were able to wear clothes
in white, blue or orange,
but moving foTward, those
colors are defined as white,

"Bulldog orange" and
"Bulldog blue," with the
former described as a royal
The changes also include:
Defining "plain" as: "free
from design or detail; no
burnouts, see through, lace
or any revealing material."

Each school year, along
with our principals, I am
honored to welcome our
students, teachers and
families to another year
in our Taylor County
schools. On the first day,
our students will be greeted
by professional, dedicated
principals, teachers and
staff. But, a successful
school year requires
supportive parents, family
and community.
This is the beginning of
the 2012-2013 school year.
The 2012 represents the
start of the year and the
2013 represents the end of
the year. The important
part of the designation of
2012-2013 school year is
not the 2012 or the 2013,
but the dash between the
years. This represents the
180 days of the school year.
It represents the time that
the students have to master
and become proficient in
the skills and knowledge to
become successful on the
state's FCAT assessment
and end-of-course exams.
Each and every day of
school, attendance is
important for student
success. You should review
the attendance policy
provided by your child's
Parents, I encourage
you to have your child's
immunizations complete.
Remember for school

attendance in Florida, there
are required immunizations
at the start of kindergarten
and seventh grade.
The Taylor County
School District has a policy
on cell phones, pagers,
text-messaging devices,
electronic games and other
devices used at school.


Paul Dyal
Remind your student about
Sthe policy.
Florida Statute 1006.07
requires school boards
to include provisions on
student dress and style
of clothing and provides
sanctions for violators.
The Taylor County School
District "Standard of Dress"
meets the requirements
of the law by addressing
the responsibilities of
each student with regard
to appropriate dress,
respect for self and others,
and the role that this has
on an orderly learning

environment. Please
review the dress code with
your children to ensure
A book that was just
released in paperback by
Peg Tyre is entitled, "The
Good School: How Smart
Parents Get Their Kids the
Education They Deserve,"
and has four points I would
like to share.
1. Make contact with
teachers by week 3. The
goal is to open up the lines
of communication between
the most influential adults
in your child's life.
2. Check that your child is
reading at grade level. Look
to see whether your child
is scoring at "proficiency"
or above on the statewide
test. Ask the teacher: What
skills does my child need to
master to get to grade level?
3. Analyze test scores.
The high-stakes test scores
4. Be part of the learning
community. Make a
commitment to attend
school meetings, parent
conferences, open house.
This is important at all
grade levels.

to visit. The website is

Taylor County Middle
School hopes to build on its
district-leading "B" grade
in the 2012-13 school year
with an expansion of its
algebra program and the
addition of a drafting class
for eighth graders.
Last year was the first
year the State of Florida

required an end-of-course
(EOC) exam for those eighth
graders taking Alegbra I.
At TCMS, 50 students
took Algebra I this past
school year with all 50
scoring a passing grade of
three or better.

Taylor County High School

One of the biggest
changes Taylor County
High School students will
see in the 2012-13 school
year is that they will now be
on a seven-class schedule
rather than six classes.
The change was made
in response to the ever-
increasing requirements
for graduation mandated
by the state, including end-
of-course exams for certain

subjects which must be
passed to earn credit for the
Principal Michael
Thompson explained that
students must earn 24 credits
to graduate, with students
attending 24 courses under
a six-class schedule.
This leaves no margin for
error for students to retake
a class and still graduate on
time, he continued.

Beginning with this
year's freshman class,
students must take Algebra
II to graduate.
Outside of core classes,
the Taylor County School
Board this summer
approved a new drafting
teacher position, which is
expected to oversee two
classes at TCHS and one
class at Taylor County
Middle School.

This year's freshman class--the graduating class of 2016--must pass the

Algebra II to graduate.

Graduation requirements

continue to grow stricter

Incoming freshman at
Taylor County High School,
along with students across
the state, will once again
face harder graduation
standards this year, part of a
seven-year program.
The changes were
implemented by the Florida
Legislature in 2010 to
eventually phase out FCAT
testing at the high school
level for certain subjects,
replacing it with end-of-
course (EOC) exams.
With Florida taking part
in the federal common core
standards, the FCAT is set to
be phased out for all grades
in the 2014-15 school
As for the state's
curriculum changes, each
year students will be required
to take more advanced
courses--including Algebra
I, Algebra II, biology and
chemistry or physics--and
in some cases pass the EOC
exams, to graduate.

The first students to be
affected were the 2010-11
ninth grade class (the 2014
graduating class), adding a
Algebra 1 EOC exam (which
accounted for 30 percent of
students' final grade) and a
geometry credit requirement
to graduate.
This past year's ninth
grade class (the 2015
graduating class), students
had to earn a passing score
on the Algebra I EOC exam
to earn credit for the class.
Students were also required
to take an EOC exam in
geometry which was worth
30 percent of the final grade
for the class.
A biology credit
requirement was also added
for graduation featuring an
EOC exam worth 30 percent
of the final grade.
Beginning with the ninth
grade class in 2012-13 (the
2016 graduating class), the
geometry and biology EOC
exams must be passed to

get credit for the courses.
Additionally, students will
have to take Algebra II to
The freshman class
in 2013-2014 (the 2017
graduating class) will be
required to have a credit
in chemistry or physics to
Also starting this year,
high school students will be
on a seven-class schedule
rather than six classes.
Superintendent Paul
Dyal said the change back
to seven classes was in
response to the state's
implementation of EOC
exams. Students must earn
24 credits to graduate,
with students attending 24
courses under a six-class
"We went to six classes
because of money savings,
but to give our kids the best
chance to be successful, we
need to go back to seven
periods," Dyal said.

Dear Parents/Guardians: Please review the routes

Welcome back to listed in the paper and

the 2012-2013


year! Once again the
Transportation Department
has had many changes as
far as bus schedules and
school bus stops. With the
challenges of scheduling,
we ask for the cooperation
and patience of the parents
and students during the first
weeks of School.

choose the stop closest to
your home. Several stops
have been combined to
provide a timelier schedule.
Thank you in advance for
your help and cooperation
in the safe transportation
of your children. To help
ensure the safety of your
children, please discuss the
safety rules listed with them.

Also, let's don't forget that
many students walk to and
from school and we all need
to be aware of their safety
too. I look forward to working
with each of you this school
year. Let's have a safe year!

B-6 Back to School 2012 August'15, 2012

Weekend Food Program Volunteer Carolyn Winningham (center) and
Extension Agent Lori Wiggins, who recently spoke to the Perry Rotary
Club, hold up a sample bag of fdod they hope to distribute to up to 100
kindergarteners and their families this coming school year. They are joined
by Perry Rotary Club President Chris Pink.

Weekend Food Program

Community joins together

to help feed those in need

With more than 70
percent of Taylor County
students eligible for free
or reduced meals, a group
of local volunteers and
organizations have come
together to provide students
and families with food to
prepare weekend meals.
Volunteer Carolyn
Winningham, who recently
spoke about the program
to the Perry Rotary Club,
said the goal is to provide
meals for 100 food-insecure
kindergarteners and their
families during the 2012-13
school year.
"Research studies shows
that children who are hungry
do not perform well in school
due to absenteeism, fatigue,
headaches, dizziness and
inability to concentrate,"
Winningham said.
The Weekend Food
Program has partnered with
the school district and the
Taylor County Extension

Office, which will house the
program this year.
Each weekend bag of food
will cost $4, which amounts
to $120 for the school year.
"Nutritional information
and recipes will be included
with the bags," Winningham

"Each weekend bag
of food will cost
$4, which amounts
to $120 for the
school year."

said. "We're also working
with the school social
workers to find out what
cooking utilities are
available at the homes, so
we don't give them food
they can't cook."
The low-cost food is
made possible by partnering
with the Second Harvest
Food Bank, she added.

The program will be
funded by business grants
and community donations.
Since the program is being
run through the Extension
Foundation, donations are
tax deductible.
Volunteers will also
be needed to help with
unloading the boxes of food
when they are delivered as
well as delivering the bags
of food to the schools.
So far, the program has
received enough donations
to provide meals for more
than 60 students and

Tips to take the anxiety

out of 'Back to School'

4-H Extension Agent I
"Back to school" may
be one of the most dreaded
phrases for parents and
students--with good reason.
The end of summer means
trading in magazines or
video games for textbooks,
and typing research papers
instead of texting friends
about beach plans. Getting a
new school year off to a good
start can influence children's
attitude, confidence and
performance both socially
and academically.
The degree of adjustment
for the school year depends
on the child, but parents can
help their children manage
the increased pace of life
by planning ahead, being
realistic and maintaining a
positive attitude.
Here are a few suggestions

to help ease the transition
and promote a successful
school experience:
Re-establish the bedtime
and mealtime routines at
least one week before school
Prepare your child for
the change by talking with
your child about the benefits
of school routines in terms
of not becoming over tired
or overwhelmed by school
work and activities.
Include bedtime reading
and household chores if
these were suspended for the
Encourage your child
to play quiet games or read
as early morning activities
instead of watching
television. This will help
ease your child into the
learning process and school

Be sure your child is in
good mental and physical
Visit the school with
your child.
Review all school
information as quickly as
Most importantly let your
child know that you care. If
your child is anxious about
school, send personal notes
in the lunch box or school
Reinforce the ability to
cope. Children absorb their
parents' anxiety, so model
confidence for your child.
Let your child know that
it is natural to be a little
nervous anytime you start
something new but that your
child will be just fine once
he or she becomes familiar
with classmates, the teacher
and school routine.

lunch should contain food from all five main food groups:
vegetables, protein and dairy products.

Kids who eat nutritious

food do better in school

Family & Consumer Sciences
Extension Agent III
Children who eat
nutritious foods do better
in school, but coming up
with healthy back-to-school
lunch ideas that children
will actually eat can be a
challenge for many parents.
A healthy school lunch
combines nutrient-rich
foods from several food
groups to supply protein, fat
and carbohydrates to sustain
energy and concentration
for several hours. The
composition of the meal
makes a difference in how
long it will stistain a child
throughout the day.
A balanced meal
consisting of carbohydrate,
protein and fat gives
children energy and prevents
a drop in blood sugar for
several hours. In general,
a meal including a variety
of foods from several food
groups will provide the
most benefits to a child,
educationally, nutritionally
and physically. A balanced
meal that keeps a child

energized throughout the
day can be a quick and easy
meal--at home, at school or
on the go.
Foods like fruit, bread,
crackers and juice provide
carbohydrates, while milk,
cheese, yogurt, lean meat
and beans provide protein to
balance kids' meals. Fat is
found in nuts, peanut butter,
meat and some dairy foods.
Providing children a balance
and variety of these foods
will ensure they are well-
nourished and energized for
Lunch should contain
food from all five main
food groups: breads, fruits,
vegetables, protein and
dairy products. Many
children do not like
sandwiches for lunch, so
including some variety
in the menu can prevent
children from getting bored
with their lunch.
Some sandwich
alternatives are:
Chicken tenders;
Beef Jerky;
Tortilla wraps;

Hard boiled eggs;
Trail mix;
Crackers with cheese or
peanut butter;
Hummus and pita chips;
Sliced veggies with low-
fat dip;
Fruit salad.
Dry whole grain cereals
(purchase milk at school)
Additionally, several
warm lunch ideas:
Soup sent in a Thermos;
Rice or potato
bowls (topped with last
night's leftover meat and
Macaroni and cheese;
Pasta noodles.
It is important to practice
safe food handling when
packing a school lunch. If
lunches are not refrigerated,
after about two hours the
food can begin to grow
harmful bacteria that cause
food borne illnesses. You
can keep lunches cold
by sending a frozen 100
percent juice box or ice
pack in an insulated lunch
box to keep contents cold
until lunchtime.

Getting your kids back

on track after summer

Family & Consumer Sciences
Extension Agent III
Preparing the kids' return
to school involves more
than buying new backpacks.
Their bodies need to get
ready as well. Summertime
diets often deviate from a
healthy lifestyle because of
everyone being on.the go.
Start planning now to get
your child back on track for
healthy eating.
It is a good idea that you
focus on a few key areas
which will make a big
impact on the school day,
and every day.
Breakfast. Parents
have heard over and over
that "breakfast is the most
important meal of the day."
Despite this knowledge,
some morning's households
are crazed with late
sleepers, lost homework,
sibling disputes and other
challenges..If your children
have missed breakfast for
these reasons, establish
a new routine that makes
breakfast easy.
Consider planning ahead

and setting the breakfast
table each night before you
go to bed. Have the plates,
bowls, silverware and cups
out. Put non-perishable
fruit right on the plate. If
your kids start with cold
cereal, leave the boxes on
the table and the milk easily
accessible in the fridge.
Ideally, breakfast should
include foods that are high
in protein and fiber and low
in sugar. Consider apple
slices, a breakfast burrito,
granola and yogurt, peanut
butter on an English muffin
or whole grain waffle,
scrambled eggs with whole
wheat toast, cheese grits or
whole grain cereals. (Skip
the pop-tarts, donuts and
sugary cereals.)
Create a back-up plan
for the mornings when the
house is too crazed to get
a good meal. Have tasty
cereal bars, apples, bananas,
nuts and other easy-to-eat
food available so you can
easily slip them to your
child on the way to the bus.
Fruit smoothies are also
great for breakfast on the

run. Fresh, frozen or canned
fruit can be used along
with 100% fruit juice, low-
fat or fat-free milk and/or
yogurt and you have a quick
healthy breakfast. Toss in a
handful of fresh spinach to
make it even healthier. Your
kids will never know the
difference; the spinach will
not alter the flavor.
Drinks matter. There is
a reason that so many school
districts have removed the
soda and juice machines!
Follow suit and avoid drinks
that are high in sugar and
artificial colors and flavors.
The calories in sugary drinks
and sodas add up fast and
offer no nutritional value.
Encourage your children
to drink water or flavored
waters throughout the day
and low-fat or fat-free
milk at lunch time. If they
do choose to drink sports
drinks, be sure they are the
lower calorie versions.
Snack smart. Snacking
smart requires a bit of
balance. Try offer your
