Yet another liquor referendum in Pigeon Forge

Yet another liquor referendum in Pigeon Forge

PIGEON FORGE, Tenn. (AP) -- Pigeon Forge voters will decide whether to allow liquor by the drink -- the third such ballot question in a little over three years.

The Mountain Press reported the referendum will appear as part of the Nov. 6 general election ballot at city precincts.

Voters rejected restaurant liquor sales 590-482 in May 2011 and previously turned down the issue in 2009.

Group wants Sevier Co. Commission to stop reciting Lord's Prayer

An out-of-state group is once again going after an East Tennessee County and its practice of reciting the Lord's Prayer.

The Lord's Prayer has been part of Sevier County commission meetings for years. Back in 2010, a group called "Americans United" threatened to sue over the practice. They also asked the country to remove its Ten Commandments display.

The county did not reply to the threats, and nothing happened, but now, two years later, the group is back.
