The boy was bitten on the leg yesterday while surfing with his father and two brothers, just south of Virginia Beach.

Officials say the bite severed an artery causing David (pell-Tee-ay) Peltier of Richmond to lose massive amounts of blood. The little boy's father, who was surfing nearby, freed his son from the shark's jaws after hitting it on the head. They were swimming 150- feet from shore in about four feet of water.

In Pittsylvania County, it's not water but beer and wine that's getting a lot of attention. The Board of Supervisors recently agreed to allow voters to choose whether to end Sunday prohibition. As News 7's Justin McLeod discovered there's a new twist on an old issue.

((((NAT SOUND OF CASH REGISTER))
You can buy just about anything you want here at the E-Z shop on Highway 58 just west of Danville.
But on Sundays, don't reach for the beer or wine.
Pittsylvania County has Sunday prohibition.
[SOT 13:05:16]
[IN Q=We have to drive all the way]

[Runs= 06]
[OUT Q=stores right here]


But that could soon change.
Area businesses have successfully petitioned the county to allow voters to decide whether the ban should stay or go.


They argue Sunday prohibition costs them thousands of dollars in revenue each year.
[SOT 13:00:00]
[IN Q=They are not planning]

((MICHAEL ESTES/CONVENIENCE STORE OWNER: THEY ARE NOT PLANNING STOPPING HERE TO GET BEER, STOPPING HERE TO GET GAS, STOPPING HERE TO BUY CHIPS. THEY STOP TO GET IT ALL AT ONCE, AND IF THEY CAN'T GET IT ALL THEY'LL JUST GO UP THE ROAD.))

[OUT Q=just go up the road]
[SOT 00:07:34]
[IN Q=The last time this issue]

((JUSTIN McLEOD/REPORTING: THE LAST TIME THIS ISSUE CAME UP IT WAS ABOUT TEN YEARS AGO. AT THE TIME, VOTERS DECIDED TO KEEP THE BAN BY THE NARROWEST OF MARGINS. THIS TIME AROUND, THERE WILL BE A SIGNIFICANT CHANGE, VOTERS WILL DECIDE BY DISTRICT RATHER THAN ALTOGETHER AS A COUNTY.))
[Runs= 15]
[OUT Q=altogether as a county]

((QUICK NAT SOUND OF STORE))
So conceivably, residents in one town could say yes while another says no.
As an example, that could allow for Sunday alcohol sales in Gretna but not in Chatham.
This is all made possible thanks to a new Virginia law.

[Runs= 10]
[OUT Q=a day of rest]


Area churches led the fight last time to defeat the ban.
According to the Pittsylvania County Baptist Association, there is no active campaign so far.
Voters will have the final say this November.

The school generates $25 million in revenues for the small community each year.
