    It's been one year since the first alcoholic beverage was served at a Campbellsville restaurant following the moist vote. And from the standpoint of City revenue and alcohol-related crime, little has changed.

    Last May, voters living within the City approved the sale of alcohol in restaurants seating at least 50 people as long as the drinks are served in conjunction with a meal. Restaurants must derive at least 70 percent of their income from the sale of food.

    The measure passed by 74 votes.
