Have not seen anymore about the Mayors complaint against Ky Liquor Commission. Is the shopping center getting the license he wants.

News today. Word is from city hall the ABC has given the mayor a goahead with six more license in the city.

I hope money is not involved in the six decisions!

Money may have caused the initial delay , maybe (maybe) contributing to the top echelon shakeup , but definitely not this time -

I doubt it. Other cities in Kentucky don't get more licenses than the population ratio set by the state ABC.

Why would Democrats in Frankfort give more licenses to Republicans in Somerset?

Hopefully a full county vote will make the issue moot. I saw in the paper they supposedly got the required amount of signatures for a countywide wet/dry vote. Question is, did they fix the petitions to be valid under state law?

When they first started the petition drive they certainly didn't, that's for sure.

As long as Burnside goes wet, I really don't care about the rest of the county. Burnside got the ball rolling and they have more than earned the right to sell. I really can't see the whole county going wet. I think the churches will at least control the county vote. Maybe not, who knows.
Good chance, but with all the county stores supporting the effort it could pass countywide.

Has Burnside started a petition since being promoted to a 4th class city? They certainly can hold their own full wet/dry election now, hopefully they have already got the ball rolling.

I agree with you, Somerset would still be dry if Burnside hadn't blazed the trail years ago.

I thought I heard that they just finally accomplished the feat of becoming a forth class city, unless I'm mistaken. But I've been away for a while, so I need to refresh my resources. And my memory as well. Burnside is on a roll, quietly moving forward at warp speed and not calling attention to themselves. Smart moves, if you ask me.

By the way, please allow me to introduce myself.
Nice to meet you, "new" Corbin NOPE..
ROFLMBO.

Here's the article from the paper last month.

http://somerset-kentucky.com/newslive/x134080...

Being a fourth class city, a full wet/dry vote will only give them package stores, not bars. They will need a separate vote for bar licenses.

I believe it would alleviate some of the burden on restaurants there, though. They would only need to keep a 50/50 ratio of food to alcohol, as opposed to the current 70/30.

Could it be the end to pretzels at Sullys?

=D

This is just assuming they're passing a petition around right now. Hopefully someone is.

What would they need, 40 or 50 signatures maybe?

Yeah, they're a whole lot better off than they were in 2001.

Anyone who says different is simply being a hater.

Why is the dry crowd always such haters?

Since we got your attention, when are those strip clubs going to open? Got that repeal petition started yet?

Thank BM. I remember now where I read that. I also watch the televised Burnside city council meetings periodically and those for Somerset too. So it's hard to tell sometimes where I get a piece of something stuck in my head... Appreciate the link!!

I don't think people these days are as interested in bars as much as they are in being able to purchase and take their alcohol home for their personal consumption. Plus, being able to go shopping for what they want without using a half tank of gas there and back. Thanks to Somerset, we're all saving a few bucks now....
(That's only my personal opinion, mind you, considering my age is plainly just "OLD" now compared to most, lol).

Anyway, it's probably got more to do with the fact that the law has gotten so much stricter on DUI's and cases of public intoxication. Maybe it's just finally sunk in for many people that it's not at all worth the risk to drink and party away from home unless you have a designated driver.. I honestly think people are more focused on making a convenient purchase and then taking it home these days.

Sorry to go off topic here, but: I've been away for a little bit and I'm also having trouble deciphering is this case about the mayor of Somerset and that Norri Wake(sp?)/Wine/Farmers market thing...

What the heck is going on THERE??

What business does the mayor have to do with someone selling wine at a farmers market since the paperwork and stipulations have passed over to Frankfort already?

Once "ABC" took the reigns and Somerset had submitted their bylaws for approval, he was SUPPOSED to be completely out of the equation from that moment on.

I was under the impression that nothing to do with alcohol zoning, sales or permits were to be dealt with from his realm of control from that point onward..

So what's the deal with THAT mess, can anyone tell me??

Thanks.

You're right, bars are really only fun if you can walk to and fro.

Plus, they really need to stay open pass midnight.

I did a little bar hopping this weekend and noticed the guy/girl ratio was getting a lot better. There were actually nice looking women out like you would see in the Lexington clubs. I think that the bars are going to bring people out that normally would of just stayed home instead of cruising Wal Mart. I think Somerset might actually get better now.
I heard the Somerset police brink on harassment outside the Captain's Lounge, pulling over sober designated drivers multiple times with fallacious reasoning.

Any truth to that? SPD need to enforce DUI laws, but they certainly shouldn't drive away business.

Midnight, really? I heard tell that a couple of these places will scream last call at 10:00 p.m. LOL!

Sadly, I have to agree about the "Captains Lounge". I've heard from a few people that they felt almost stalked when they left there on a couple of occasions. But in all honestly, I've seen this done in other states and towns also. To the point of people having their tires "chalked" by law enforcement...
Hopefully those tactics will grow old given time.

Could be a 'concerned citizen' out there somewhere who's making habitual complaints I suppose. Nothing coming from the dry crowd would surprise me in this town. The sooner they accept the fact that we've at least met 1965 around here and revenue is now actually going WHERE IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN GOING ALL ALONG, the better we'll all be....
