Canaan

   

A New Hampshire school district has concluded a cafeteria company was right to terminate a worker who claimed she was fired for giving a student free lunch.

Bonnie Kimball alleges she was fired in March by a food supply vendor for Mascoma Valley Regional High School in Canaan, a day after giving a free lunch to a student who couldn't pay. The district denies this, saying all students get lunch regardless of income.

A female employee was fired from Cardigan Mountain School earlier this month for sexual misconduct. 

Kimberly Wennik was the manager of the school store and mail room and admitted to having "sexual contact" with a student at the all-boys boarding school, according to school officials.

The school sent a letter to students' parents on July 10 notifying them of the situation.  School officials say Canaan police are investigating the matter.

Cardigan Mountain is a boarding and day school for boys in sixth to ninth grade.

In March, a lunchroom employee named Bonnie Kimball lost her job at Mascoma Valley Regional High School.

Her employer, a company called Cafe Services, based in Manchester, fired her for providing lunch to a student who had no money in their account.

The story is getting a lot of attention around the state and reporter Tim Camerato broke the story in the Valley News. He spoke with NHPR's Emily Quirk on All Things Considered.

Few details have been released on the officer-involved shooting this weekend that led to the death of a 26-year-old man from Enfield.

For just over two decades three towns in the North Country have held a Moose Festival at the end of August. And, it shouldn’t come as any surprise that such an homage would include a moose calling contest.

This one started with a demonstration by Roger Irwin, a wildlife photographer and experienced moose vocalist.

Now I’ll try and do a cow call. This is the cow. She’s asking for a bull to come visit her.”

There were about a dozen folks trying to make that moosey come-hither sound.
