Ohio Girl Scouts boycott cookie drive in protest

COLUMBUS -- Some Girl Scouts in northeastern Ohio are refusing to go door-to-door selling the organization's famous Caramel deLites, Thin Mints, and Trefoils to protest a decision to close four scout camps.

The idea to protest the annual cookie drive came from the girls because they don't like that the 18-county Girl Scouts of North East Ohio isn't supporting the camps, said Marie Cassidy, the leader of a troop in Aurora.

Fourteen of the troop's 16 high-school-age scouts have decided not to go door-to-door this year, though they'll still sell cookies to people who request them.
