I'm not sure how this story got on a Green Bay TV station, since Green Bay is nearly 150 miles from Sparta, but the headline is very misleading. Sparta is a city and selling beer in grocery stores and convenience stores in Sparta has nothing to do with the county.

Wisconsin promotes it's beer makers and sellers, it is big business, they shove beer in the faces of our younger children, then when the money grubbing police catch them, they end up with a police record. we have ten million places to buy alcohol already. I'd like to at least be able to get groceries without wading through the stacks of beer cases and ads. two faced idiots.

Should stop selling alcohol period in the county. it would stop dui, domestic violence, emergency room visits, reduce traffic patrols, and a few other things. Too bad our county would never do anything that makes any sense.

The last thing we need is more places for people to buy alcohol. citizens don't need it, surely the police don't need it, We need to stop promoting Alcohol and the ease of obtaining it. Alcohol abuse is dangerous enough. we don't need to add fuel to the fire.
