D'oh! Don't take away our free doughnuts

CARMEL, N.Y. (AP) - Putnam County wants to stop handing out free doughnuts at senior centers because of health worries, but patrons say they're old enough to decide what they eat.
The Office for the Aging has been getting free "day old" doughnuts from local doughnut shops, delis and stores, and then passing them out at the county's five centers.
But nutritionists have questioned if the doughnuts are good for the over 65 set, which is susceptible to high blood pressure, heart disease and diabetes.
The issue has been turned over to the Putnam County Legislature which will debate in the coming weeks if the free doughnuts should be given out.
