Cookie lady shut down by anonymous complainer

CHANHASSEN, Minn. (AP) — A Chanhassen mother who has been baking cookies for the kids on her children's bus for 15 years has been shut down by an anonymous complaint.

Every Friday, Anne Tabat meets the school bus in her subdivision with a basket of cookies. It began as a thank you to the bus driver. And, Tabat says she couldn't give the driver a cookie without giving one to every child on the bus.

For the first time in many years, Tabat won't be at the bus stop Friday. She got a phone call from the school this week telling her someone had complained and that she should cease and desist her cookie dispensing.

Minnesota Public Radio News (http://bit.ly/19h1XQG ) says Tabat has taken it in stride. She's busy making 200 cookies for her neighborhood party Saturday.
