The next meeting will be upcoming activities March 15. The Jan. 30 meeting of the Jewell County 4-H Council was called to order by acting president, Clu'istel Higbee, in the meeting room of the courthouse at 1:45 2 businesses The possibility of adding a school breakfast program is being explored by Superior School authorities. The school board has discussed available in- formation at each of its last three meetings and recently grade school parents were surveyed. Mike Moody, grade school principal, reported, "We bad an excellent return on our surveys. Three hundred surveys were re- turned and they ran about three to one in favor of a breakfast program. The next step is to put the program together. A resource person from the Dairy Council, who has considerable experience with such, is willing to meet with us to discuss facilities, menu plans and scheduling, Dennis Mehlhaff, school super- intendent, stated. A review of the present en- rollment found 110 of the 350 students in the Superior elemen- tary schools are eligible for a re- duced price or free breakfast. The breakfast meal pattern re- quires four food group items be offered, fluid milk, either a fruit or vegetable or their full- strength juice, and a choice of one of the following: two serv- ings of brea~ two servings of meat, or one serving of bread and one serving of meat. Examples of a bread serving include one slice of whole-grain or enriched bread, a biscuit, a muffin, a roll or 3/4 cup of ready-to-eat cereal. Examples of meat servings include one ounce of meat, 1/2 of a large egg, two tablespoons of peanut butter, 1/4 cup of dry beans or peas or one ounce of nuts or seeds. Menus meeting the guide- lines could include assorted cereals, toast, orange juice and milk or cinnamon roll, milk and sliced peaches. In both of these menus two bread servings are included with a fruit and milk. The cinnamon roll could count as two bread servings because of its size. A samp!e menu including meat is a ham and cheese bis- cuit, orange quarters and milk. Scrambled eggs, hash brown po- tatoes, toast and milk would also meet the menu guidelines by providing a meat alternative, a open at G.R.

Currently it costs $2,500 to paint the pool ever other year and $2,000 to sandblast every five years. Council members directed the park board investigate the cost and feasibility of lining the pool. It was also noted the pool's filter building is in need of roof repairs. It was thought the mainte- nance staff could complete the work but materials would cost about $3,000. Third on the list of needs was the community's original post of- rice.

If the school district chooses to offer the program, the student would be required to take three of the four items on the menu. Several school districts in Nebraska offer breakfast pro- grams. Questions addressed by those districts provide possible solutions to potential problems created by adding a breakfast program in Superior. Class and bus scheduling is one of the major concerns voiced by school administrators. Mehlhaff, said "I don't antici- pate putting busses on the road any earlier. With the roads the way they are, I do not feel this a reasonable option. I think there are some ways we can adjust our schedule." We are required to meet 1,032 hours and are cur- rendy running about 1,100 hours, so we have some flexibil- ity." Other concerns include su- pervision, labor and equipment. Many school have been able to implement a breakfast pro- gram into their existing sched- ule.

Bob Allgood, police chief, and a representative of Platte Valley Communications discussed defi- ciencies in the police radio sys- tem. Currently, the radio range is so limited that officers are not able to talk across town. It was sug- gested the addition of repeater equipment would eliminate the dead spots within the community.
