Wiggins to start selling beer and wine on Sundays

WIGGINS, MS (WLOX) - Starting Sunday, businesses in Wiggins can legally sell beer and light wine.

Many business owners have been pushing for this ordinance to pass for some time. Stone County is a dry county, they say patrons will just drive out of the county to get beer and wine elsewhere on Sundays. Now they can keep that business in Wiggins. Sales will be allowed from noon to 11 p.m.

There were many objections to this ordinance. At last week's Board of Aldermen meeting, several church members and citizens showed up to ask the aldermen to rescind the ordinance.
