In this Tuesday, July 16, 2019 photo provided by the Brigham City Police Department, Seth Parker stands at his soda stand in Brigham City, Utah. Parker is earning widespread social media attention for his neighborhood soda stand thanks to a sign he holds that reads, "Ice cold beer" with "root" above the word beer in tiny print. Brigham City Police Lt. Tony Ferderber said Thursday, July 18, 2019, that several residents in the northern Utah city called police concerned about a young boy selling alcohol in front of a church.
