"Liquid lunch" denied

by Cat Urbigkit

The application for a malt beverage permit at Sand Draw Station at the junction of Highway 191 and 351 was unanimously denied by the Sublette County Commission on Tuesday.

Donna Steele of the Boulder Store spoke in opposition to the issuance of the permit. Steele noted that there is no alcohol allowed at the mancamp, but issuance of the permit would result in the sale of alcohol within 300 feet of the mancamp buildings. She also noted that she'd heard concerns about providing for a "liquid lunch" for workers in the area.

Commissioner Bill Cramer said he doesn't think the Sand Draw Station is a good location for alcohol sales.

"I agree with you, Donna," Cramer said.

Commissioner John Linn said, "It's right at the crossroads for a wreck."

Commission Chair Betty Fear agreed, resulting in a unanimous vote to deny the application.

The late Buss Fear will be memorialized with a plaque at the rodeo arena at the Sublette County Fairgrounds. The Buss Fear Memorial Arena was officially named recently by the Sublette County Commission, in honor of his leadership in locating the arena for use by the citizens of the county.
