Alcohol Sold in Ohio Town for 1st Time Since 1920

  • Photo
NOVELTY, Ohio (AP) People can buy alcohol in one Ohio town for the first time since Prohibition took effect in 1920.

Russell Township voters in northeast Ohio's Geauga (jee-AW'-guh) County said no to going "wet" several times since Prohibition's repeal in 1933. The most recent rejection at the ballot box came in 2000.

But last fall voters approved a measuring allowing one convenience store to sell alcohol. The Circle K store began offering beer and wine last week.

Alcohol sales supporters tell The Plain Dealer newspaper of Cleveland it didn't make sense for Russell Township to lose business to neighboring communities that already were selling alcohol. Opponents say they're concerned about underage drinking.
