    Well this is really old but I never heard of it until now.

    The father of a Durango, Colo., teenager, who was sued for leaving cookies on a neighbor's porch, now has a restraining order against the husband of the woman who filed suit.

    Richard Ostergaard obtained the temporary restraining order because he said Wanita Young's husband, Herb Young, continues to call his home and harass his family.

    It's the latest installment in a rural soap opera that could be called "How The Cookie Crumbles."

    Wanita Young won a $930 judgment against two girls who left cookies on her doorstep last summer, claiming the incident gave her an anxiety attack, which required medical care.

    Taylor Ostergaard and Lindsey Zellitti's story has garnered nationwide attention and the girls were in New York City over the weekend, appearing on the weekend edition of ABC's "Good Morning America."

    The incident began last July when Ostergaard and Zellitti decided to skip a local teen dance and bake a batch of chocolate chip cookies for their nine rural neighbors. They left the cookies, along with anonymous notes, on the front porches of their neighbors. They thought it would be a nice gesture and knocked on the doors before running away to make certain someone found the cookies before any wild animals did.

    Wanita Young told the Durango Herald that the incident frightened her.

    "We heard this horrible banging on the door, like someone was trying to break it down," she told the newspaper. "I ran upstairs and called out 'Who's there?' three or four times. But no one answered me and when I looked out the window, there weren't any vehicles in sight. But I could see the silhouette of someone on the other side of the window. I got really scared and called the sheriff's department."

    Three sheriff's deputies arrived and found the cookies along with a note that read: "Have a great night. Love, The T and L Club." The "T and L Club" stood for Taylor and Lindsey.

    The deputies didn't know what the note meant and suggested the Young stay in a motel that night. Young's husband was out of town so she took her 86-year-old mother and 19-year-old daughter to her sister's house in Farmington, N.M.

    "Driving down there, I was throwing up and feeling a lot of pressure in my chest," she told the Herald. "I thought I might be having a heart attack."

    Young, 49, went to a medical center emergency room the next morning and her hospital bill was more than $1,400. Doctors diagnosed her problem as an anxiety attack.

    Young said she was assaulted by one of her neighbors 15 years ago and thought the cookie incident might be related to that.

    Young is a cashier at Wal-Mart and has been director of the Durango Food Bank since 1990. Ostergaard is a senior at Durango High School, and Zellitti, is a freshman at Colby College in Kansas.

    Denver radio station KOA raised more than $1,900 from listeners Friday to pay the court fine levied against the two girls. The remainder of the money will go to a charity dedicated to victims of the Columbine High School shootings.

    Young said her phone hasn't stopped ringing and her life has been threatened.

    "I'll probably have to move out of town," she said.

    A hearing is scheduled on Feb. 17 to determine if the temporary restraining order against Herb Young should be made permanent.

    guys the women in this story was clearly retarded but i think the funniest (and stupidest) part is when the police dont understand the note!

    police officer: wat do you reckon about this note sheriff?

    sheriff: wat did it say again?

    police officer: "Have a great night."

    sheriff: sounds pretty bad to me.. and they left some cookies!! hmmm wat type of cookies were they?

    police officer: chocolate chip cookies sir.

    sheriff: yeah these jokers definately seem like trouble.. better tell the family to go to a hotel for the night or they may be killed.

    The report states that only 52 percent of public high school students in these cities graduate after four years, while the national average is 70 percent. Some 1.2 million public high school students drop out every year, according to researchers.

    Link-An indictment of the profit system High school drop-out rate in major US cities at nearly 50 percent


    The annual dropout rate rose from 3.3 percent in 2006-2007 to 3.8 percent this year, in large part due to the state’s ability to obtain more accurate information regarding transfer students.

    Link-Student dropout rates at an all-time high

    Not getting into your guy's little tussle but I perfer to rely on statistics rather than surveys. Im sure the average must be somewhere inbetween those to. Though I don't really trust the first's source since its a socialist website and it can be biased.

    Only in Canada will you find a bunch of hypocrites, making fun of the U.S.A. even though we take advantage of you. I.E., you drill oil, we buy your oil, your prices go up for something you drill. - My fucking brain.

    So because a mid-age Asian female sues over cookies, that corresponds to 3/4 OF (notice the of, that you forgot, retard) Americans dropping out of school? The only logical explanation then is that the 3/4 dropping out must be Asian, obviously.

    And even if your poll '3/4 of Americans drop out' is correct, it means nothing.

    Polls are easily distorted, and are not the truth.

    Look at my school, this year 3 kids out of 145 dropped out of the graduating class.

    So according to my poll, 2% of U.S.A. kids drop out.

    I know this isn't true, but according to my poll it is.

    So I proved you wrong, if you want to play that game.

    If you don't want to keep on topic, don't fucking post.

    He didn't stereotype shit. When someone makes fun of Canadians the first response is, "That's because Americans suck, and are dumb.".

    Why Canadians Suck

    Point proved, no where does it say anything that the website is enforced or run by an American, what are the hate email responses?

    Americans are stupid: 16

    Americans think stupid things are funny: 2

    Americans have funny money and twangy accents: 1

    Americans think money means everything: 8

    Americans bitch and moan: 1

    Americans are imperialistic barbarians: 4

    The world hates Americans: 11
    So fuck both of you. I never hated Canada, but I do hate you more everyday. Mainly because once you are called stupid your whole plan is: "AMERICA IS DUMB". That's what pisses me off. You guys can't take any criticism without crying and making fun of Americans, and we take it mainly because the ones who actually listen to anything Canadian related, aren't dumb, and laugh at you for being big bitches.

    On topic:
    I thought it was going to be really stupid as well, but if you read closely it says she was attacked before in the same neighborhood. Stupid, but I guess if you were really traumatized it could have affected you, though it was her own dumb fault for going to the hospital. I would have move as well if I pulled that stunt.

    Well, I suppose that if they were going to rob her, they wouldn't be so kind as to knock first. But even if she did suffer, the family offered to pay the medical bills as long as she agreed to not seek out possible future lawsuits. Unfortunatly, she denied the agreement.

    So your going to defend a BLANKET statement about an ENTIRE country?

    So...who's the retard here?


    No reason to come out with the douchery or personal attacks, damn.


    OT:

    She was attacked 15 years earlier....to me, that seems to be a woman who has trouble letting go, lol.
