On behalf of our board of directors, staff, RAHALL: Congress Fights Childhood Obesity and Hunger WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Rep. Nick Rahall (D-WV) applauded passage today of S. 3307, "Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010," legislation that will reduce childhood hunger and obesity through improvements in school meals nutritional quality, increased access to child nutrition programs, strengthened. "It is alarming to see that over 9 million of our young adults are unable to enter the military because they are overweight. Our schools are on the front line of defense in the fight against child obesity, and this bill will aid in fighting this epidemic," said Rahall. "All across southern West Virginia, our schools have made great strides toward good health for our children through improvements in school nutrition by reducing fat and sodium in foods. West Virginia has already adopted many of the standards the US Department of Agriculture looks to implement, which will make it easier to get an increased reimbursement. Some - like Cabell County Schools - have even launched innovative programs using meal plans with more foods cooked from scratch." The Healthy, Hunger Free Kids Act will increase the federal reimbursement rate for school lunches for school districts that comply with federal nutrition standards - the first reimbursement rate increase in more than 30 years. .An additional 6 cents per meal will help schools meet new meal standards to provide' children with healthier school meals. The bill requires the USDA to develop science-based nutrition standards for all foods sold on a school campus during the school day and establish nutrition requirements for the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP), which includes providing meals to young children in preschool settings, as well as to children participating in after-school programs. S. 3307 also expands afterschool meal coverage to reach at-risk children who face hunger each day, and promotes the availability of nutritious meals in and volunteer helpers, Director summer ad out-of-schl times: Brent Fernandez extended thanks .... } betieeour schots'dderve%lae fd .............  ..... t " r ........ , and tl, economic times it's gratifying to explore better meals and healthier know that people are willing to reach out to help those in need."

"The Healthy, Hunger Free Kids Act will allow also expand our school breakfast program in West Virginia to ensure our kids start the day off right. We cannot short-change the health and well-being of our children. "They need healthy, balanced, nutritious meals - whether they are in pre-school, grade school, or after school programs. We must provide the funding, programs and guidelines needed to provide the most-healthy options for our children." The National School Lunch Program provides lunches to over 31 million students each day. In West Virginia, just over 162,000 students participate in National School Lunch program and students also have access to School Breakfast in every school, a program that provides over 11 million meals nationally. The state exceeds the nation in implementing the recommendations of the Institute of Medicine, as West Virginia has. reduced the amount of sodium and fat in all its foods, removed ala carte items and soda machines, and offers salad bars as an option for students. West Virginia has also implemented a state wide breakfast program to ensure our students start the day right. West Virginia is also working to expand its fresh fruit and vegetable program, with 12 counties in Southern West Virginia participating in this program as of 2009. The passage of the legislation today in the House by a vote of 264 to 157 sends the bill to the President's desk for his signature. k: In the Library " "For the past ten years the library has focused on getting an elevator installed, the third floor completely renovated and operational, and the mezzanine renovated and filled with books. The elevator is in, the third floor is finished (but for some doorknobs and other miscellaneous "furnishings) and the mezzanine is beautifully redone and full of our adult fiction.

We will be distributing surveys to the people of - Summers County, asking some important questions. Your answers will :be vital to the decision-making process. The survey will appear in the t[ newspaper in the near future. It can be cut out and mailed to the library. ! You can also fill out a survey in the library or on our website. The entire staff thanks you in advance. Tues. Feb. I, 2011 Hinton News - 3 LEGISLATIVE U PDATE By Delegate Virginia Mahan While I normally use this space to inform you, my constituents, of the legislative issues we face each week, I feel I would be remiss if I did not take this opportunity to explain some of the power shifts that have taken place in the Legislature and last week's Supreme Court ruling defining some of the parameters for a special election for governor. In order to fully understand what has happened, we must go back to the passing of West Virginia's beloved U.S. Senator Robert C. Byrd last summer. While his passing leaves an irreplaceable void in our state, as a proud and determined people, we had no choice but to move forward and lead this state in the manner in which our beloved Senator would have wanted. His passing led to a vacancy in the United States Senate. Former governor Joe Manchin sought and won, the U.S. Senate seat and left his role as governor of West Virginia in November. Under Article 7, Section 16 of the West Virginia Constitution, when a vacancy is lel in the office of Governor, the President of the Senate shall act as governor until the vacancy is filled. With this, our Senate President Earl Ray Tomblin began to act as governor. Tomblin had concluded that state law did not allow for the next election for governor until its regularly scheduled date in 2012. However, a Supreme Court decision last week compelled Tomblin to proclaim an Oct. 4 general election for governor. The justices ruled unanimously that he could act as governor for no more than one year. Therefore, an elected governor must take office by Nov. 15, the ruling said. That's the anniversary of Tomblin, as Senate president, taking over the chief executive powers from Manchin, who left office with more than two years in his second term as governor. The decision left intact the current process for special elections, which sets party conventions instead of a primary for nominating candidates. The justices noted that the Legislature, which began its 60- day session on Jan. 12, could change that within the confines of their overall ruling. Consequently, this week Tomblin asked the Legislature to replace party conventions with a June 20 primary for the court-ordered special election for governor. The legislation would allow Tomblin to proclaim a special primary upon its passage. Candidates would then have 10 days to file for the race. The chief elections officer, Secretary of State Natalie Tennant, would issue emergency orders, if necessary, to preserve voting rights in such areas as overseas absentee balloting. While I'm sure many people, myself included, are suffering from some degree of election fatigue, allowing the people of West Virginia to elect their own governor is simply the right thing to do. If you would like to follow the daily action of the Legislature, visit the 80th Legislature on the web at http'// As always, I welcome and appreciate your input on this or any other legislative issue. Please call me at (304) 340-3102 or write to Delegate Virginia Mahan, Room 206E, Building 1 State Capitol Complex, Charleston, WV 25305.
