But after two years, the lunch workers are finally getting a raise. "It was a survival situation," said Assistant District Superintendent Harold Haskins a couple of weeks ago talking for a Journal Opinion article on the success of the district's gamble on a relatively unknown computer-assisted lunch program management system. The lunch program has gone from a system that turned out a $9,000 deficit at the end of last year -- to a system that generated an estimated $4,000 surplus this year. Last week Haskins recommended to the Haverhill Cooperative District School Board that district lunch personnel receive a ten per- cent increase in their wages. The school board approved the recommendation. With the new salary in- crease, kitchen operators in the Haverhill district schools will receive cages of $4.01.per hour. Kitchen helpers at the school will now make $3.79 per hour instead of the Federal minimum wage. School officials are con- fident that the district's lunch program has indeed survived.

"She ran the whole place," said Smith, "running the programs, buying the books, selecting the titles. She really put in a lot of work." Since Laura officially retired last week, Doris Honig has been named to fill the position of librarian in Bradford. Honig, said Humphrey,. lives in West Fairlee ann has had considerable ex- perience working in a number of college libraries including the library at Dartmouth College in Hanover.

Police said Caffeso had been traveling back to the cam- pground on his motorcycle with his companions traveling in a car and riding another motorcycle. His friends noticed he was missing when they arrived back at the campground. They reportedly searched the roadside for signs of their friend that night, deciding to call the Haverhill Police Department early the next morning. Caffeso was pronounced dead at the scene. The body was examined and cause of death was determined by Dr. Donald Kollisch. Caffeso was said to have been driving a 1972 Triumph motorcycle in the accident. Police said that Caffeso failed to negotiate a corner on the road sending him and the motorcycle into the woods. Thoughts on the out-of.doors This week: Pereg00e Falcons .
