Many have asked The Alpine Sun if we have heard anything about the County’s decision regarding the 7/Eleven issue and the Type 21 Liquor License that was to be issued. At the last Alpine Community Planning Group meeting, their was a motion to appeal the County’s decision to transfer a Type 21 Liquor License to be used by the incoming 7/Eleven business slated to be the anchor store at the new Victoria Village business park. The vote to appeal that decision was 10 yes, 0 no, 2 abstentions, and 2 absent.

A Special Meeting was called by Chairman Greg Fox of the ACPG and was held on Monday, October 8, 2012.

The old west was walking down Alpine Boulevard on Tuesday morning leading his horse and his mule. He was on a trek from Yuma, Arizona, heading to Mexico, on foot to retire. The picture of Cuervo, leading his horse Rock and Roll, and his mule Cocky Walker brought to mind images of Gunsmoke.
