Voters Will Decide Alcohol Issue

For more than two years, restaurant and bar owners in Beaufort County have been at odds with a local law.

These business people in the unincorporated area of Beaufort County have been fighting for the right to serve alcohol at their businesses on Sundays. Now they're a little closer to making that a reality by giving voters the right to make the decision.

They collected more than four thousand signatures on Saturday, enought to put the issue before voters on the November ballot.

"You're talking a lot of money that is lost revenue," commented restaurant owner Beth Cooler, "and it pushes your customer away, to go to a place that they can sit and watch a game and have a beer."
