Effort starts for liquor by drink in dry county

CLAY CENTER, Kan. (AP) — The manager of a sports bar in one of a dozen dry Kansas counties has begun a campaign to allow sales of liquor by the drink.

The Clay Center Dispatch reports (http://bit.ly/1hP9oxj ) Clay County now allows wine and mixed drinks to be served only in private clubs.

Teresa Garcia, manager of Coach’s Sports Grill & Pub in Clay Center, would like to change that. Garcia says adding other beverages besides beer would help her establishment.

Kansas has allowed liquor by the drink since 1986 in counties where voters approve.

At least 290 registered voters must sign Garcia’s petition for the question to have a chance of going on a ballot. County Commissioner Jerry Mayo said the commission would support and put such a measure on the ballot assuming it receives a valid petition.
