We were glad to see the Kershaw County Sheriff’s Department conduct a sting operation recently that resulted in five area businesses being cited for selling alcohol to minors. People under the age of 21 have many ways to get alcohol, and we don’t delude ourselves into believing that such an effort will wipe out underage drinking, but it’s one more step that will make it more difficult for people to buy alcoholic beverages illegally. A few oldtimers might remember a similar sting which was a cooperative effort between the Chronicle-Independent and Sheriff Hector DeBruhl about 30 years ago.
