Box 8 Carson, WA 98610 DALLAS SMITH REPORTER This year at the Goldendale School District, breakfast is being served only at the primary school. High school and middle school students can still get breakfast, if they go to the primary school. There are designated sections for the high school and middle school students in the cafeteria. Every student who chooses to eat breakfast at the primary school is still responsible for getting to class on time. According to District Superintendent Mark Held, after enrollment dropped to a little more than 900 students, the number of kids eating breakfast went down quite a bit. The reason for eliminating breakfast at the middle and" high schools is that it was not cost efficient, Held said. The schools continually lost money because there were not enough kids eating breakfast to pay for it to be staffed. Traveling?

Lost walle Another fun discussion was had at The Goldendale Sentinel's Java Talk last Fri- day at Golden Coyote Coffee at 8 a.m. We had a hard time trying to speak one at a time because of our excitement to share.

Also mentioned was that KLCK radio will have a new program be- ginning Sept. 16, where Dave Ram- sey will be replac- ing Geraldo Rivera weekdays from noon to 3 p.m. We asked Police Chief, Rick Johnson at Java Talk what the latest news was on the licensed marijuana retail- er that would be in Golden- dale, since one location has been determined by the Liquor Control Commission to be in Goldendale and three others will be at large in Klickitat County, meaning they also could be here in Goldendale. Chief Johnson does not know if, when, who or where it would be located yet. He has to map out the city first, making sure it will not be located within 1,000 feet from schools etc. The 1,000 Hear's Goidendale Diana Notestine Gas Appliances r Electrical Repair Get your RV Mobile Service & Repair State Fire Harshal Certification # O01242-08 Service & Repair. i come to you!

Goldendale Primary School says there is a safety issue at the primary school as far as dropping off and pick- ing up children from school: Children will be dropped off and picked up at the sidewalk of the south parking lot (clos- est to the office door). The andcontents returned intact north parking lot is for buses only, morning and afternoon. For safety reasons, pull up to the curb to let your child off. Children should not be dropped off in the middle of the parking lot. Cones will be out to stop traffic for the small buses that will be un- loading children and then re- mpved once the buses have left to allow traffic through as normal.
