Letter: Kids’ lunch, hoodoo stories embarrassing
First Published Feb 01 2014 01:01 am • Last Updated Feb 01 2014 01:01 am

Utah made national news today with two stories that make me sick.

First, charges are finally being filed against the Boy Scout leaders who, gleefully clapping and jumping and giggling, destroyed a hoodoo in Goblin Valley ("Utah files felony charge against ‘goblin topplers," Tribune, Jan. 31). It’s about time.

Next we learn that children at Salt Lake City’s Uintah Elementary School had their school lunches confiscated because, for whatever reasons, their parents were in arrears on payments ("Second staffer placed on leave after school lunches yanked," Tribune, Jan. 31).

Lunch/cafeteria employees took the trays away from the kids and threw the food in the dumpster. And the kids had to sit there, embarrassed and humiliated in front of all their classmates. Do those disgraceful school employees feel any shame?

Tell you what, Salt Lake schools: I’m sending my phone number. Next time a child’s lunch account goes negative, call me. I’ll be there in 15 minutes with cash. Their parents can settle up with me later.
