  • Jacksboro falls off the Sunday wagon

     Last Thursday night the Jacksboro Board of Mayor and Aldermen joined the city of LaFollette by amending its beer ordinance to allow the sale of beer on Sunday.

    Mayor Jack Cannon opened the discussion concerning amending the ordinance, by saying the town was losing revenue by not allowing beer sales on Sunday.

    As the board attempted to set the hours for Sunday beer sales, the aldermen looked toward Cannon for guidance. After several minutes, Alderwoman June Forstner came forward with a suggestion.
