Repeal Of 80-Year-Old Booze Ban On Small Texas Town’s Ballot

HARPER (October 26, 2013) Voters in the small rural Texas town of Harper will decide next month whether to repeal a nearly 80-year-old local law that bans the sale of spirits containing more than 3.2 percent alcohol by weight.

The Hill Country town passed the restrictions two years after the U.S. repealed prohibition in 1933.

At the local Dauna's Store, Pam Fogle says she has to tell hunters to drive 20 miles to buy wine or whiskey.

No organized opposition has emerged to next month's ballot measure and Gillespie County Judge Mark Stroeher says the repeal will probably pass easily.
