Alcohol Sales Brisk On First Day

Posted: January 18, 2013 at 5:43 a.m.

Barb Trusty, general manager for Kum & Go store No. 408, sorts through cases of beer Wednesday, Jan. 16, 2013, while getting her store on East Central Avenue in Bentonville stocked and ready to sell the alcoholic beverages beginning at 7 a.m. Thursday.

Advocates of liquor sales spent $703,039 to legalize retail alcohol sales in Benton County in November. On Thursday, it cost Eric Alderete $6.99 to buy a six-pack of Bud Light at a Bentonville gasoline station.

For this to be front page news means that all the world is in good shape and no one locally even had a fender bender. I had no idea that all the unrest in the world was solved peacefully.

Question I have is the twelve round clip of Coor's Light going to be outlawed? Might be only a six pack is legal. Could one buy two six packs at a time if you sign a Federal form that you are only going to drink one at a time without a gun 100 feet from the Coors.
