Martin asks court to dismiss alcohol sales lawsuit

Martin asks court to dismiss alcohol sales lawsuit


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Secretary of State Mark Martin is asking the Arkansas Supreme Court to dismiss a lawsuit trying to block from the November ballot a proposal to expand alcohol sales to all 75 of the state's counties.

Martin's office on Tuesday responded to the lawsuit filed last week by Citizens for Local Rights, which argues the state used the wrong deadline for accepting petitions to place the alcohol measure on the November ballot. The group argues that the state should have used July 4 as the deadline, rather than July 7. Martin last month certified the measure for the November ballot.

Martin cited a 1999 law that allows election officials to rely on the next business day if a deadline falls on a holiday.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - "I'm a single dad," Matt Mittlestat said. Bryant Steele added, "I've been divorced for a little over two years." "My ex-husband deployed and I really don't have a support system in Arkansas at all," Whitney Chase said. These are three different people with similar stories.

"A friend of mine told me I needed to join this singles group. I was like no, and everybody has the same thing, you tell them singles group and it's like oh no! I don't want to be in no singles group," Steele explained. But Steele soon discovered the group was unlike any group he's been a part of before. He said, "I still wasn't ready to date. I was mentally and emotionally damaged."
