Obedience School

Gabriel S. Paulick, 36, works for Nutrition Inc., which manages cafeteria operations for the Ringgold School District in New Eagle, Pa. He has two daughters, but by making up a third, prosecutors say, he was able to qualify for free or reduced-priced lunches for his girls. He chose the name “Karla” for the third girl. “Wait a minute, that’s his dog,” said Debbie Kendra, head of the district’s cafeteria system, who knew Paulick. “If he had put down any other name, he might never have been caught,” said a school district official. Paulick has been charged with theft, netting him $1,723 in subsidies over three school years. (RC/Pittsburgh Post-Gazette) ...His dog? What does that say about food quality?
