Man can't sour Dunedin boy's lemonade stand

Dunedin, Florida -- A neighbor's bid to remove a youngster's lemonade stand has turned the attention to his potential violation of a city ordinance.

T.J. Guerrero is a fixture selling lemonade in his Dunedin neighborhood.

But about a year ago, a neighbor tried to put the squeeze on T.J.'s lemonade. Doug Wilkey complained to the city that the 12-year-old was running a business without a license.

When the media revealed Wilkey was targeting TJ, his business started booming.

Money and support poured in from across Tampa Bay, the U.S., Canada, even Europe. Wilkey's plan backfired.

"It makes me upset and kinda mad he doesn't support me," said Guerrero.

But, the city of Dunedin found out Wilkey may be running a home business without the proper tax license. The city put him on notice that if it's true and he doesn't comply, he will face a $250 a day fine.

And the karmic twist is something neighbors found amusing.

"What goes around comes around, huh?," said one neighbor.

"I'm gonna make a lemonade stand in front of his driveway," said another.

"And he's opened up Pandora's box on himself," said yet another neighbor.
