State approves Sunday liquor sales in Starkville


Tim Pratt



The State Tax Commission this morning approved the city of Starkville''s request to allow restaurants to sell liquor and wine on Sundays. 


The extension in hours, which is effective immediately, will allow for liquor and wine sales in restaurants from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.  


Tax Commission spokeswoman Kathy Waterbury said the Commission received "an impressive stack" of letters from Starkville residents both for and against the extension of hours, plus "a lot" of e-mails, though she had no exact figures.  


Restaurants, grocery stores and convenience stores also will be allowed to sell beer and light wine, such as wine coolers, on Sundays beginning later this month since the Starkville Board of Aldermen in August approved amendments to the city''s alcohol ordinance to allow Sunday sales. The city can regulate the hours beer is sold, but the Tax Commission regulates liquor and wine sales.

I am planning to give my wife a big surprise with tiffany jewelry on sale as a birthday gift, but I don't know which one to choose, any ideas?

I get this tiffany and co from my grandmother when she passed, but I would like to know if it's definitely real, how can I do this?
