For the past 10 years, James and Evon Yeoman have sold staples like milk, eggs and bread to Placentia residents. They have also sold plenty of dreams for those who want to get rich. Since they opened shop in 1989, Cobblestone Village Liquor on East Orangethorpe Avenue has sold $5.8 million in California lottery tickets, said store manager Bruce Maag, who said more than 1 million of the tickets netted a small winning for holders.

Sweet Ratings: Three Orange County wine stores scored well in Wine & Spirits magazine's annual "readers-rate-the-retailers" survey. Customers gave Hi-Times Cellars in Costa Mesa an A-plus, prompting the magazine to note that it has "terrific depth in wines across a broad range of regions." The magazine described Wine Club in Santa Ana, which received raves for "unbelievably low prices," as "the most popular place in Los Angeles for readers to buy wine."

State Alcohol Beverage Control officials on Thursday revoked a liquor license held by Warner Liquor for repeated sales to minors. The move by the state agency follows a City Council decision last month to shut the store at 9555 Warner Ave. Although the council forced the store out of business, the ABC ruling prohibits Warner Liquor from selling or transferring its permit, said Fountain Valley Councilman John Collins.

A liquor store that officials alleged had sold alcohol and cigarettes to minors has been shut down by the City Council. Officials said they could not recall the last time such action had been taken.

This was bad news, bleak news, the kind of news that drives some people to drink. Which was convenient, since many of those upset by the news were standing in bars and liquor stores when they heard. Hours after the California Supreme Court killed the state lottery's keno game, calling it an illegal form of gambling, players throughout Orange County were staring into the abyss. "I play this every day!"
