Russell County votes to allow sale of alcoholic beverages
by Larry Smith
92.7 The Wave and 99.9 The Big Dog
"Prohibition is over in Russell County."
Heavy support from Jamestown and the lake precincts helped to sway the historic vote. The final tally was 3833 in favor of allowing the sale of alcoholic beverages in Russell County, to 3423 against, a margin of 410 votes.
Precinct reporting started off strong on a positive note for the wet side, however, it got closer and closer as the dry side tally began to shape up. At one point in the last few precinct reports it appeared there could have been a 100-vote shortage for the wets. Unless there are changes in the official count, Russell County will be wet.
