**Update: Local Govt. Official: Apology: "food-safety laws are aimed at adults engaged in a professional food business, not kids running lemonade stands. " [Duh.]
"A lemonade stand is a classic, iconic American kid thing to do," he said. "I don't want to be in the business of shutting that down."
"After 20 minutes, a 'lady with a clipboard' [and jackboots?] came over and asked for their license. When Fife explained they didn't have one, the woman told them they would need to leave or possibly face a $500 fine."
(For a 7-year-old with a lemonade stand.)
"Our role is to protect the public"
I feel safer, don't you?
