Voters To Weigh In On Liquor Sales

Voters in two Eastern Carolina towns will decide whether to change the local rules banning liquor by the drink sales in restaurants and other establishments.

The liquor by the drink proposition will appear on the ballot in Snow Hill and La Grange. Voters in both towns have defeated similar measures in the past.

Early voting runs until Nov. 5, and election day is Tuesday, Nov. 8.

    And women should sit in the back of churches, wear hats, and not speak unless spoken to.

      Exactly...replace the beer with a joint. I don't see a negative side of this idea.

    Liquor should be illegal in all 50 states. Drinking alcohol is bad. People shouldn't do it.

      It's only bad when low-class people can't exercise self-control and use it in moderation.

      The U.S. tried that in the 1920s. It didn't work.

    If those towns recognize that they will never have any forward progess of motel or chain restaurant opportunity they will vote it in..... If they want it to remain stagnant then they will not.
