Jemison residents approve alcohol sales

JEMISON, Ala. (AP) - Residents of the central Alabama city of Jemison have voted by a wide margin to legalize the sale of alcohol.

A referendum in the Chilton County town of 2,200 people passed
by a margin or 466-213 on Tuesday.

Supporters of the measure say the city needs money, and tax
revenues from alcohol could help things like schools and youth sports.

Opponents say alcohol brings corruption and destroys families.
