City cookie ban crumbles for Scouts

The city manager of Savannah, Georgia, has granted Girl Scouts an exemption to sell cookies outside the historic mansion of the woman who founded the organisation nearly a century ago.
A complaint, which many thought took the biscuit, halted the long-time practice of selling cookies outside the home of Juliette Gordon Low, who founded the Girl Scouts in Savannah in 1912 - near a busy junction.
Savannah bans peddling on public footpaths but Rochelle Small-Toney used her civic power to make exemptions to the regulations to allow the Scouts to continue their sales.
