A group gathers around the Owen County Clerk’s Office Tuesday evening to await the results of the countywide wet-dry election. The measure failed by 23 votes.
VOTERS 'JUST SAY NO' TO ALCOHOL

For the second time in five years, a countywide wet-dry election failed to pass Tuesday.
A total of 23 votes decided the election, with the ‘no’ vote carrying every precinct except South Owen, Monterey, and Gratz, as well as absentees.
Dr. Joy Arnold-Morse, a vocal ‘no’ supporter, said she was thankful the children of Owen County would not be exposed to countywide alcohol sales.
Clint Swigert, another vocal ‘no’ supporter, declined to comment.
