Warner Robins stores on probation for alcohol sales

At Warner Robins City Council Tuesday night, council members voted to put four stores on probation, after an undercover investigation revealed they sold alcohol to people under the age of 21. 

The stores are: Bobby's Food Mart on Elberta Road, 7 Star on North Davis Drive, JB's Liquor on North Davis Drive, and LoLo Food Store on North Houston Lake Road.

City Attorney Jim Elliott says people at each location were found guilty of selling alcohol to underage people. 

This comes after an undercover investigation by the State Department of Revenue. 

"These were the results of a state sponsored sting operation done back in September," he explains. "Citations were issued. There were convictions in all four cases. Then, those matters get referred to the mayor and council to take possible action on an alcohol license."

Houston Co. E-SPLOST coming up for a vote

On March 1, the E-SPLOST will be up for a vote again in Houston County. 

That's a one-cent sales tax that helps fund education projects. 

The Houston County Board of Education wants the money to go towards things like improved facilities, technology, and other renovations.

One of the Board's goals is to improve athletic facilities.  

Seniors Marquez Callaway and Tesia Walker have been playing at Warner Robins High School for four years, and they both agree a better gym could have been a game-changer. 

"Last season, we had to give up our home court advantage to a team that we really needed to play," Callaway explains. They were forced to move to another location. 

 "That gym had over 2000 seats, and this one barely holds 800."

 "Everybody's all crouched in," says Walker.
