Underage Beer Sales Should NOT be Tolerated on Third Offense

A local Northeast Knox County business appeared before the Knox County Commission Beer Board. They are guilty of the third violation of under age beer sales. The Beer Board on motion of David Wright, (who disclosed that he is a friend of one of the owners and a shopper of the store) that the establishment be fined $1,500 or a 90 day beer license suspension. The business chose the $1,500 fine. A third strike should take you out of the ballgame.

Commissioners Brad Anders and Sam McKenzie publicly stated that a fourth incident will result in revocation or longtime suspension. It is good that two commissioners have a backbone, too bad David Wright can not make a decision separate his personal connections and loyalty.
