At an ABC Board meeting held on August 19, 2015, the ABC Board approved an application for a permit for East End Liquor.

Representative Julie Mayberry (R) District 27, which includes the East End community, spoke in opposition to the application. Rep. Mayberry stated "the district I represent did not support the sale of liquor in Saline County. So I'm here to represent them".  

The proposed location of East End Liquor, on Arch Street in East End, is located close to two daycare centers. It is against the law and ABC regulations to have an outlet located within 1000 feet of a church or school.  Daycare centers are not mentioned in the law or ABC regulations.

Rep. Mayberry stated that she disagrees with daycare centers not being considered in connection with an application for a permit, "there is learning going on, there is young children within 350 feet of this location and we need to look out for those children".


The ABC Board has the authority to modify and change their rules and regulations and can add daycare centers to the regulation prohibiting the location of an outlet within 1000 feet of a school or church.

A reasonable person would think that a daycare center would be included and considered by the ABC when looking at an application and its approval.

But the ABC has a vested interest in approving all applications as they receive a large part of their funding comes from fees collected from permits. 

It is clear that money is more important than children to the ABC Administration and Board.

Three LRPD cops "relieved of duty" over incident at Club Trois

Sources at LRPD have confirmed a tip we received that three LRPD cops, Brad Stewart, Lee Pitts and Justin Sims have been "relieved of duty" in connection with an incident at Club Trois. The story we were told is that Stewart was working off-duty at Club Trois and dealt with an inebriated female club patron by soaking her with pepper spray.  LRPD General Order  ("G.O.") 303 requires that a cop that uses physical force, non-lethal control and compliance devices, on or off-duty, follow certain procedures. Use of pepper spray is a Level 4 event. Here are the specific procedures. LRPD sources tell us that they are trained to call MEMS after they use pepper spray or a taser on an individual. They are to file an incident report and they file an officer's report or letter form (5600-2) with their immediate supervisor for each use of force incident. Here's an example of an officer letter form.   Not a single procedure was followed in this incident. And to make matter

Pulaski County Department headed by State Senator Fred Love is in trouble.

By Russ Racop On July 31st we broke the story that there was an internal investigation afoot at the Pulaski County office of Community Services.   A recipient of Section 8 HVC vouchers contacted us on that same day for assistance and we began our investigation.   Her landlord contacted her and told her she had three days to get out of her apartment because she had fraudulently obtained assistance.    The landlord had been contacted by Love's staff before she had. She didn't understand what was going on because she just moved into the apartment and had been vetted and approved for assistance by Love's department. It's not the first time someone has reached out to us about Fred Love and that county department.  Love also serves in the state legislature as a Senator. We have received allegations and some records about sexual and workplace harassment, malfeasance and misuse of county resources involving Love. We immediately called the number listed on that rent payment noti
