MIDWAY, Ga. (AP) - Police in Georgia have shut down a lemonade
stand run by three girls trying to save up for a trip to a water
park, saying they didn't have a business license or the required
Midway Police Chief Kelly Morningstar says police also didn't
know how the lemonade was made, who made it or what was in it.
The girls had been operating for one day when Morningstar and
another officer cruised by.
The girls needed a business license, peddler's permit and food
permit to operate, even on residential property. The permits cost
$50 a day or $180 per year.
One girl, 14-year-old Casity Dixon, says the three had to listen
to police and shut down.
The girls are now doing chores and yard work to make money.
