Maine town votes to allow beer and wine sales

The Associated Press

FRIENDSHIP, Maine — Voters in the small coastal Maine town of Friendship have approved a measure to allow beer and wine sales.

Voters on Tuesday approved a local proposal allowing stores to sell beer and wine — but not liquor, and not on Sunday.

Friendship residents rejected previous attempts in 1987, 1992 and 2000 to overturn the ban on alcohol sales. Officials say the town’s been dry since 1919.
