    Patrons of Metzger's Country Store have responded enthusiastically to the store's new charitable campaign for animals, the owner said.

    Charlie Metzger said that his new promotion, called "Round Up," has collected about $400 so far to be used to benefit the Shelby County Humane Society and The Woodstock Foundation.

    When customers make a purchase, they are asked if they would like to "round up" their bill to the nearest dollar amount. The change is then used for the nonprofit organization being promoted, which will change periodically, Metzger said.

  • Vote 'yes' for Sunday sales

    Next week fiscal court will take up an ordinance that would allow the sale of liquor by the drink at restaurants in the county. We think magistrates should say yes.

    The measure would allow establishments that seat at least 100 patrons and get more than 70 percent of their sales from food to serve alcohol by the drink on Sundays. It would allow establishments such as Claudia Sanders Dinner House, the Persimmon Ridge Golf Club, the Cardinal Club and a few others to sell liquor on Sunday, just as more than 60 businesses in the city can do now.
