Yalobusha voters to decide beer issue Dec. 11

Residents of Yalobusha County will decide December 11 whether it is legal for them to have a cold one.

The Yalobusha County Board of Supervisors voted this past week to hold a countywide special election on whether to legalize the sale of beer and light wine.

Supervisors set the election date after a group called the Yalobusha Progressive Organization turned in a petition with 2,312 valid signatures - more than the required 20 percent of the county's registered electors to require the vote.
