Establishments selling alcohol did quite well when Gurnee police conducted a recent check regarding possible sales to minors. Police perform periodic spot checks of businesses within the village that offer retail sales of alcoholic beverages, with the latest coming Jan. 9. Looking for possible underage alcohol sales, Gurnee detectives accompanied six volunteers who entered the establishments and attempted to make purchases. Two volunteers were 17 years old, two were 18 and two were 19. Of 46 businesses checked, none served alcohol to the minors. "These results show the outstanding commitment Gurnee's liquor license holders have to keeping alcohol

out of the hands of our kids," Police Chief Kevin Woodside said.
