State, Locals Disagree over Wet-Dry Precincts
Confusion about which Clark County precincts are wet or dry surfaced recently when special permission was given by the parks board for alcohol to be sold in a park during the John Michael Montgomery Country-Fest. The Winchester Sun began researching which precincts are wet or dry after a resident raised questions about the Ecton precinct, which includes Lykins Park, and offered evidence that suggested the precinct might be dry. That is not the case, but The Sun found inconsistent record-keeping between the state office of Alcoholic Beverage Control and the county.
