IUKA, Miss. (AP) – An Iuka man, who successfully petitioned to get an election on the sale of beer and alcoholic beverages in Tishomingo County, now wants an additional tax on liquor with the proceeds going to youth programs. Charles “Tubby” Aldridge tells the Daily Corinthian that he is proposing a 2 percent tax be added to alcohol sales to go toward projects for youth – playgrounds, skate parks or whatever local officials want. He says the tax would be in addition to the sales tax of 7 percent. The tax would require approval from the Mississippi Legislature. Beer sales recently began but a liquor store is yet to open in the county. Residents approved liquor sales by a 42-vote margin and beer sales by a 73-vote margin on May 21.
