      Sticker Shock program hopes to reduce underage drinking

      Public Health in Delta and Menominee Counties along with youth organizations are giving the community "sticker shock."

      The idea is to reduce underage drinking. They put three thousand stickers on beer and wine coolers across Delta County. They remind adults the cost of providing alcohol to minors.

      It can lead to a $1,000 fine and 60 days in jail. It's not only the cost to adults they're worried about. According to Public Health, when people start drinking at a younger age, they are 4 to 5 times more likely to develop a problem with addiction.

      "There's a lot of my friends and other people I know that do a lot of drinking and I know it's not good and it gets really addicting," says volunteer Myron McCullough. "So I figured I better come out here and help out and try to get people to quit drinking."

      Public Health officials encourage the community to celebrate the Fourth of July without alcohol.
