Its not election season yet, but the possibility of legalizing alcohol sales in Lubbock has prompted two local organizations to seriously discuss their stance on the issue. The Lubbock Chamber of Commerce and the Lubbock Area Baptist Association are both meeting to talk about the public stance they will take, as talk of circulating an alcohol petition gains support. Board members for both organizations are meeting behind closed doors to discuss what alcohol sales could mean for Lubbock. Were told the chamber is leaning toward supporting a petition in favor of sales, while the Baptist Association will most likely oppose it. "We realize this is a citizens issue," says Dr. Larry Jones, of the Baptist Association. "Were not here to preach to the citizens, were here to encourage citizens to understand what were facing." Says Chamber member Eddie McBride, "It wont go away until we actually have a chance to vote on it, so if we dont do it, someone else should, at least to get it to the ballots, so that we can actually have our constitutional prvilege be made available and actually vote on it."
