Eat Lunch Out? At School
. School lunches have changed, and the week of Oct. 11-15 is a good
time to see how they've changed for yourself.
Parents and community residents in general are invited to join young
sters for lunch in a Brunswick County school cafeteria in celebration of
National School Lunch Week, sponsored by the American School Food
Service Association. The theme, "Shape Your Future," promotes the un
derstanding and awareness of the importance of good nutrition.
Stop by for lunch and you'll Find varied menus featuring foods that
generally have less fat, less salt and less sugar than menus of even a few
years ago. The menu for Monday, Oct. 11, features a choice of grilled
chicken on a bun or beef-a-roni and garlic bread, lettuce and tomato,
green beans, French fries, fresh fruit and milk. On Thursday, Oct. 14, the
choice is oven baked chicken or hot dog with chili, tossed salad, steamed
rice, baked beans or steamed broccoli, fruited gelatin and milk.
All school lunch menus emphasize the Dietary Guidelines for Amer
icans which include:
?eat a variety of foods;
?maintain healthful weight;
?choose a diet low in fat, saturated fat and cholesterol;
?chcxise a diet with plenty of vegetables, fruits and grain products; and
?use sugars, salt and sodium in moderation.

CP&L Says Wire Reports Inaccurate
Carolina Power & Light denied wire service
reports Tuesday that there are cracks in a nuclear
reactor and which suggested that the company
was considering closing the Brunswick plant.
Some reports also said the crack in the Unit 1
core shroud was discovered by federal regulators.
"None of these statements is accurate," said Roy
Anderson, vice president of the Brunswick Plant.
CP&L will make repairs in the core shroud,
according to a company news release issued late
"We have been doing a very thorough ultra
sound investigation of the Unit 1 shroud, and
based on the latest data, which have been gath
ered within the past day, we will go forward with
a repair of the shroud," said Anderson.
The shroud is a stainless steel cylinder that
directs the flow of water inside the reactor The
shroud is inside a six-inch-thick reactor vessel.
CP&L has been investigating indications of a
crack in the shroud since early July and has been
sharing its information with the federal Nuclear
Regulatory Commission as data became avail
able, Anderson said. The company performed an
ultrasonic test of portions of the shroud and has
taken a sample of the metal in the shroud wall for
"Based on this preliminary information,
CP&L has worked with General Electric Co.. the
reactor manufacturer, to develop more sophisti
cated ultrasonic test equipment to identify how
deeply into the shroud metal the crack extends,"
the release said.
"Based on the results of this more extensive
investigation, we have decided to do a repair to
the shroud before the unit is brought back into
service." Anderson said. The repair will consist
of adding stiffening braces around the top portion
of the shroud.
"These repairs will restore the strength of the
shroud to its original strength for the remaining
life of the Brunswick plant," Anderson said.
CPA:!. estimates the outage will be extended
by approximately four weeks, with the unit re
turning to service in December.
