A Kentucky mayor in a mostly dry community is asking residents to sign a petition that seeks a vote on allowing alcohol sales in restaurants.
Berea Mayor Steven Connelly told the Lexington Herald-Leader that the effort, if successful, would help the economy. Berea is dry except for the historic Boone Tavern, which started selling alcohol last year.
Five barrels of Wild Turkey bourbon were found behind a shed, and a Franklin County man has been charged, according to Franklin Sheriff Pat Melton. Photo courtesy of the sheriff's office.
Wild Turkey officials say there were no signs anyone had broken into a Kentucky warehouse where five barrels of aging bourbon were taken in a heist that led authorities to a backyard where the whiskey was found.
