Oregon girl not bitter after lemonade flap
Not sure how I feel about this. Food safety rules are in place for a reason, right?
PORTLAND, Ore. — After a county inspector squeezed out a kid’s lemonade business, so many Oregonians puckered up in disgust that the county chairman had to pour on a little sugar.
The apology sweetened up some sour feelings and made 7-year-old Julie Murphy eligible to resume selling her Kool-Aid and water concoction for 50 cents a cup.
Last week at a local arts fair, Julie and her mother were surprised when a county inspector asked to see their restaurant license.
They didn’t have one. The inspector told them they would face a fine of up to $500 if they didn’t stop selling lemonade.
