Masonville Residents Voting on Alcohol Sale Laws

Daviess County residents in the Masonville precinct are currently casting their votes on local alcohol sale laws.

Citizens in the Masonville precinct are going to the polls to decide whether alcohol can be sold on Sunday in their area.

Votes are being cast at the Masonville Baptist Church, and only eligible, registered voters in the Masonville precinct are allowed to cast a ballot.

The vote came about after a petition for the election was created by Pinakin Patel, owner of Masonville Food Center. 

Patel circulated the petition and posted a $4200 bond to hold the Election because Kentucky Law says that if a Wet/Dry Election takes place outside of normally scheduled primary or general, the petition must pay for the entire process.

He says he made the petition on behalf of his customers, many of whom have been pushing for the current law to change.

In-Person Absentee Voting also took place in the days leading up to Feb. 2.

Temperatures dipped back into the upper 30s and low 40s for many of us early this morning, marking our coldest start to a day in Evansville (where we fell to 41°) in more than a week. Fortunately, the chilly start to the day didn't mean that our afternoon would be a loss, it was anything but - in fact, after seeing temperature around 57° by our lunch hour, afternoon highs crept back into the mid to low 60s area-wide; we hit 63° in the River City - while that's still 2° shy of the norm for October 27th, we'll take a 3° increase over yesterday's high of 60°. The clear skies that allowed temperatures to climb as high as they did earlier on however, are on their way out as our next round of rainfall inches ever closer. The remainder of the evening ahead should remain dry, but isolated rainfall will return to the Tri-State as early as the overnight and predawn hours Thursday.
