State liquor control agents have been working in college towns throughout Missouri for the last few weeks, training the people who will be serving alcohol to new or returning students. Liquor control supervisor Dale Roberts wants to train bartenders, servers, package liquor store clerks and others to spot fake identity cards, people too drunk to drink, and other situations. He and his agents have been on the road in recent weeks, holding meetings in the main college communities. He says he’d rather see those businesses make profits instead of paying fines. Roberts says his people sometimes go into a community before the training sessions to see what needs to be emphasized in the training sessions. He says the training is welcome most of the time. Roberts says 95 percent of the businesses want to cooperate with his agency. He adds they’re in business to make money, not problems.
