Alcohol license restored for Albany store

February 20, 2007

Albany - A fresh start for an Albany business that got into trouble for selling alcohol to the under aged. Former Lee County Sheriff's candidate Jimmy Kerfoot lost his alcohol license when his store, Bald Eagle Food Stores was busted four times in two years for selling to people under 21.

Last January, commissioners revoked his license, but the license for that store was restored Tuesday. Tommy Postell says, "A person had made a violation and his license had been revoked and now we're renewing that license back and I wanted to make sure there was nothing else under the table that will cause a problem if anything else is to occur with that license."

If a store has four violations within 24 months, its license is automatically revoked, but commissioners have the right to suspend it after only one violation. Commissioners say they'll watch Bald Eagle Foods closely and that compliance officers plan to do even more checks for violations.
