COMMENTARY By ALANA MARSH STAFF COLUMNIST  Many students at Perrysburg High School have come to notice changes in the school lunches over the years.

Federal school-lunch rules are hard for some to swallow By JOSHUA  M.

Missing from the cafeteria are the cookies and ice cream, and the pizza/Bosco Sticks are now whole wheat, but what students are griping the most about are the missing soups.  The missing soups have lead to heated controversy and debate among students. Many students speculate that the school is “out of their mind” as one student put it. However the school is not necessarily the one to blame.
