Beer and Wine Sales in Keene?

Keene, Texas, is a dry town–but a  group called Citizens for the Growth of Keene is circulating a petition calling for allowing sale of beer and wine, saying it would attract business.

Hmm. Keene has 5000 residents, a Seventh-day Adventist university, high school, and elementary school,  a Seventh-day Adventist church with 2,880 members, and a Baptist church.

Do they really think this will pass?

  1. We certainly hope that it will pass! Some of your numbers are wrong though. We have over 6500 folks in this town, and while the Adventists started the town back in the 1800’s, they are in the minority now.
    Keene has some financial problems, and has had to raise property taxes grossly. If we don’t get some relief, in the way of tax revenues, folks are going to have to move, because we won’t be able to afford to live here!

  2. I was basing it on the last census figures.

    Adventists aren’t the only Christians who might have a problem with changing the status quo.
