Olton voters approve beer & bars


Olton residents have voted overwhelmingly to legalize the sale of alcohol beverages and mixed drinks.

In an election that drew lots of interest, there were 259 votes cast “For” and only 83 cast “Against” the issue, which not only allows for the sale of beer and liquor at package stores but legalizes open bars, where mixed drinks can be served. There were 342 ballots cast.

The battle for booze was won in early voting with 153 ballots cast “For”. Organizers got those who favored the sale of alcohol to the ballot box early, while only 20 early votes were cast in opposition. On Election Day, there were 106 votes “For” and 63 “Against”.

These two teams couldn’t be more even, and they both want the same thing — a No. 3 spot in the Class AA Region 1 playoffs.

Olton and Sundown face off at Olton Memorial Stadium this Friday. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m.

“As it sits right now, with Post and New Deal being undefeated, it looks like they have the one and two spots kind of sewn up. But that third spot is up for grabs between us and Sundown,” Coach Ross Lassiter said this week.

As they go into their season opener Friday night, the Olton Fillies have something they didn’t have last year — varsity experience.

The entire varsity roster is returning players, and only one of those did not play varsity last year.

“We have a lot of varsity experience,” said Coach Kyle Johnson, who will be in his second year. “Now, it will be a matter of putting that group of people together in a team that all has the same goals and same desires, same attitude and same work ethic and then see what we can make out of it. It is nice to have a lot of returning players.”

Johnson predicted the Fillies will be a “much improved” basketball team compared to last year.
