Alcohol Issue in Harrodsburg
Without alcohol sales, business at the 19th Hole restaurant at Mercer County's Bright Leaf Golf Resort is drying up and it will soon close. But, if the restaurant is annexed into Harrodsburg, which allows sales, it likely would stay afloat and prosper. That’s what Helen King, the self-described matriarch of Bright Leaf Resort, told City Commissioners on Monday night. “We’ve had the restaurant many years. We’ve tried to stay dry, but everything has become wet around us,” King said. “Our restaurant is failing because we can’t compete."
