After the neighbor's attempt failed, people came out in droves to support 12-year-old TJ Guerrero in Dunedin, Fla. He made $600 in two hours.

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm David Greene. It is hard to think of anything more innocent than a kid running a lemonade stand. Twelve-year-old TJ Guerrero was doing it in Dunedin, Florida. But a neighbor tried to shut him down. He petitioned the city to intervene, saying TJ was causing traffic, not to mention lowering home values. The neighbor's campaign might have left him with a sour taste though because people came in droves to support the 12-year-old and buy lemonade. TJ made 600 bucks in two hours. It's MORNING EDITION.
