Donate to "Cookie Girls"

On July 31, Taylor Ostergaard and Lindsey Zellitti decided to skip a dance and, instead, bake cookies for neighbors. They knocked on doors, dropped off the cookies along with heart-shaped wishes that recipients "have a great night," then ran away.

Wanita Young said that when the pair knocked on her door about 10:30 p.m., it frightened her into an anxiety attack. A Durango judge Thursday awarded about $900 to the 49-year-old woman to cover some medical bills incurred when she ended up at the emergency room the next day.

How sad and how ridiculous.

The families set up this address for mail and donations to the girls' college fund: Taylor Ostergaard and Lindsey Zellitti, P.O. Box 2528, Durango, CO 81301. They said that the legal fees have been covered, but for those who would still like to give, the college fund would be a nice idea.

Here's the most ridiculous part of the story. Ms. Young avowed that her court victory, by contrast with the cookies, was not sweet. "I'm not gloating about it. I just hope the girls learn a lesson." I bet they did! Think twice before being kind and demonstrating Christian kindness!
