The McMinnville Board of Mayor and Aldermen Tuesday night passed first reading of a measure to delete the church distance requirement for the sale of beer. The motion was made by Alderman Rick Barnes. Also voting in favor of the amended ordinance were Aldermen Ben Newman, Billy Wood and Mayor Haley. Aldermen Neal, Bonner and Smith voted against it.

The ordinance will be up for another vote on second and final reading on October 14th.
In other business, the board approved on final reading an ordinance to appropriate funds in the amount of $228,931 to certain nonprofits.

Fewer Teens Binge Drinking
AP Wednesday September 24, 2014

Tennessee officials say fewer teenagers and pre-teens in the state are binge drinking.
The state Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services says the decreases follow a five-year effort to heighten awareness about the dangers of having five or more drinks on one occasion.
The agency says that between 2009 and 2013, binge drinking rates for teens ages 14 to 17 dropped nearly 16 percent. Among those ages 18 to 25, that drop was 5 percent.
Other findings include a 25 percent drop in alcohol-related arrests among young people, a 24 percent reduction in juvenile drunken driving arrests and a 14 percent decrease in alcohol-related traffic fatalities.
