 The Mayfield City Council has approved an ordinance that would allow stand-alone bars in the city.  

 

Previous city law required stores and restaurants to derive only 30 percent of their sales from alcohol. The new ordinance, approved 8-1 at a meeting on Monday, eliminates this limit and allows for alcohol sales on Sundays beginning at noon.

  Mayfield celebrated Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday night at First Lutheran Church with singing, speeches, and the announcement that a defunct, decade-old local chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), the oldest civil rights organization in America, would be revived in their community.

 

The former president of the chapter, Virginia Langford, announced for the first time they have the needed 50 members to restart after years of effort to bring the group back.
