If you get thirsty for a cold beer or desire a glass of wine with your dinner Sunday, you will be able to legally buy it here in Lamar County but you will have to know where to go. Only two retailers will be able to quench your thirst.At its regular meeting Tuesday night, the Lamar County commission unanimously approved the second reading of the ordinance regarding the sale of package beer and wine on Sunday. Sales will be allowed from noon until 11:30 p.m. at retailers with package sales licenses in the county that are outside any municipality where sales are governed by municipal ordinances.At present, only two stores fill that bill. They are C&B Store on Hwy. 41 South and TJ Outfitters on Hwy. 36 West.County administrator Bob Zellner reported the commission office was notifying retailers of the change Wednesday morning.
