 SHEPHERDSVILLE - Sandy Simmons couldn’t help but get emotional when talking to members of the Bullitt County School Board.

She was at Brooks Elementary to have lunch with her son and she saw a little girl in front of her in the cafeteria line.

But when the girl got to the cashier, the lunch lady took the lunch and announced that she needed a cheese sandwich for the youngster.

“Do something different,” said Simmons. “Don’t tell our kids we can’t feed them.”
