City Leaders Vote In Favor Of Sunday Liquor Sales

In a 10 to 4 vote the Lexington Urban County Council voted to expand alcohol sales on Sundays.
The decision was delivered to a packed house Thursday night where many people showed up to voice their opinions on the matter.
One council member abstained from voting and another council member was absent.
This will be the first change to Lexington's liquor laws in more than 20 years.
The new ordinance goes into effect on December 11th, but December 16th is the first Sunday when the sales will be allowed.

    Amen Doug. I have been saying that for years.

    Funny alcohol was not involved when the sweet old lady from Church was driving through the parking lot through and hit my car. I say no more 1/2 off specials at Long John Silvers.

    IF THE CHURCH WANTS TO SPEAK ON THIS MATTER, THEN THE CHURCH SHOULD START PAYING TAXES, LIKE THE REST OF US.

    There have been Sunday liquor sales in this city for a long time. In just about any restaurant and all 'pubs' (bars that sell food). ---- Now, if you are out of liquor at home on Sunday you can go to a store and buy it saving you from having to go to a restaurant, drink, and then drive home risking your life and those around you. I would much rather someone drink at home than have to go to a restaurant and drink then drive home.

    Crystal and Tamra just have no clue do they? Holier than thou people are normally the ones with more skeletons in their closet than anyone else.

    Crystal, how can you say that the man wouldnt have been drunk if not for sunday sales, how do you know when he bought it, people are going to do stupid things and I'm glad the fellow is dead, one less drunk driver on the road but its not my fault and I shouldn't have to pay for their mistakes

    Crystal, what you and others fail to realize or acknowledge is that that man would have bought the liquor the night before so the wreck definitely still could have happened. If you don't drink that is fine with me and if you go to church on Sundays that is fine also, but what gives you and others the right to push either on the rest of us? I will not try to force you to drink liquor so why do you keep trying to force your beliefs on me?

    Tamra. It's not supposed to be a Christian country. Lay off the religious rhetoric, you're only scaring yourself. Going to hell for changing drinking laws on Sunday!? Get a grip.

    SC...my point was if not for Sunday sales...that wreck wouldnt have happened and that man wouldnt be dead. If Sunday sales were not legal that man wouldnt have been drunk. Not that hard to figure out.
