On July 29, Julie Murphy committed the “heinous crime” of selling lemonade for 50 cents a cup at an arts fair in Portland. Since the young entrepreneur did not have a temporary restaurant license costing $120, the county health inspectors threatened to fine her $500 if she did not leave. Even after offering the lemonade for free and for donation only, the county officials shut down her lemonade stand. While Julie left the fair in tears, hopefully her entrepreneurial spirit was not broken by these harsh government regulations.
yea i heard some woman schooled some kids because they were giving it away.. in her mind the kids were not learning proper business ethics by doing so and for sure heading down a road of promiscuity, prostitution and drug abuse and being the downfall of western civilization as we know it.
Well, the only thing I have heard about lemonade stands is that a woman called and complained about the kid down the street selling lemonade because she "didn't have a business license" So as far as I know it's because of people like her.
This the site I found my info.
I think this would have to be for health reasons, but I am not for sure on this.
Yep. I'm assuming the story you posted above is the same I had heard about.
All it was is some d**k head cop that has nothing better to do!
