(CUNNINGHAM, Kan.) — A small town in Kingman county will vote Tuesday on whether or not liquor can be sold on Sundays. The city of Cunningham could become the only city in the county to allow it. Some say it will be good to attract business to the town, others though say it's a bad idea.
"Some friends and myself, felt that this shouldn't be just a decision for the City Council," Pat Donelson says. After the City Council unanimously approved the measure in April, she and her friends collected enough signatures to have the city vote on it.
"I'd been taught as a child that Sunday, which is the Sabbath, the Lord's Day, and to keep it holy. I do not feel like the liquor store, to keep it open, is in honor of our Lord."
One of the reasons supporters want the law changed is because of the overpass for US 54, which now bypasses Cunningham. The liquor store says that ever since the overpass was constructed, it's seen a 30 percent drop in business.
