Stores cited for alcohol sales 6.11

Written by David Green.

Seven Fulton County stores were cited during alcohol compliance checks by the Ohio Investigative Unit (OIU), a division of the Ohio Department of Public Safety.

During the procedure, a trained informant under the age of 21 attempted to purchase alcohol while an officer from the OIU waited in an outside area away from view of those inside the store.

The purpose of the check is to ensure that local retailers with liquor licenses are requiring proper identification. This prevents the sale of alcohol to those under the age 21, in compliance with the law.

The checks were conducted in conjunction with the Fulton County Family and Children First Council’s Parents Who Host, Lose the Most campaign.

Those cited were:

• Fayette, Circle K, 200-204 E. Main St. and C & J Carryout, corner of US 20 & St. Rt. 108;

• Archbold, Oasis Car Mart, 1200 Stryker St.; S and S Express, 1500 S. Defiance St,; and Nu Arch Lanes, 1010 S. Defiance St.

• Delta, Country Corral, 7910 St. Rt. 109;

• Metamora, Joe’s Tavern, 121 Maple St.

  • Accident
    FAYETTE resident Patricia Stambaugh, 64, was declared dead on the scene of a single-vehicle accident Friday morning south of Morenci. Rescue units were called around 9 a.m., but as of Tuesday, law enforcement officers had not yet determined the time of the accident. According to Ohio State Highway Patrol, Stambaugh was driving west on U.S. 20 when her Chevrolet Malibu traveled off the north side of the road and down a steep embankment, coming to rest in Bean Creek (Tiffin River).
  • Athletic Fields
    SPORTS COMPLEX—Fayette’s outdoor athletic facilities will include three ball fields for summer recreation leagues at the southwest corner of the school. The baseball and softball fields, along with the running track, will be constructed on the east side of the school. Outdoor athletic fields were not part of the new school project from 2007, but voters approved a $1.4 million levy for a school addition and the sports fields last August. Both projects are scheduled to be complete by July 20.
