That'll teach you to be nice

It's going to cost two Durango, Colo., teenagers $910.70 for staying home to bake cookies for their neighbors rather than going to a dance that could have turned rowdy. Although it wasn't Valentine's Day, the cookies were decorated with red paper hearts that read: "Have a great night!" So what's the problem? Well, while six of the recipients were touched by the gesture, a 10:30 p.m. knock on the door so frightened a seventh that she took Taylor Ostergaard and Lindsey Jo Zellitte to court. The judge in the case ordered the penalty on grounds that the defendants shouldn't have been out so late.
