The Daily News reports
An early Sunday morning call to the Lee County Sheriff’s Department in regards to a possible domestic event resulted in a man being arrested on felony drug charges.

According to Lee County Sheriff Gary Parsons, his office received the call around 8 a.m. Sunday. The caller directed officers to Summer’s Drive in the Left Poor Valley section of Lee County, Virginia. Parsons says upon officers arriving and speaking to the complainant they determined Anthony Rivers had came to the residence and started an argument over fishing poles. Parsons also reports at the time of the incident Rivers allegedly brandished a firearm and a knife.

Parsons reports that officers located Rivers at his residence, where he gave consent to search the home. During the search, officers reportedly found bags of marijuana, drug paraphernalia and 22 marijuana plants outside the residence.

Parson says that Rivers was being held in the Duffield Regional Jail without bond and was arraigned Monday in Lee General District Court.

WYMT News reports

Williamsburg passes the referendum to sell alcohol 448 to 241.

It’s known to be a highly divisive issue in many of Kentucky’s rural communities over the years.

“If you’ve ever had alcoholic parents who were abusive, you would think twice about voting yes,” said Don Bunch, who says he voted ‘no’ on the issue at the Williamsburg City School precinct Tuesday.

“We don’t need to make it any easier for our young people to die in automobile accidents. Or innocent people,” Bunch said.

Mayor Roddy Harrison says he started the petition to allow all stores to sell beer, wine and liquor…but not just so it would be easier to get a six pack.

Williamsburg was one of the few towns on I-75 where packages stores are not legal.

Voter turnout was said to be extremely light. At the county courthouse where about 600 are registered to vote, only 40 or so had voted by noon. That’s about seven percent of registered voters.

Voters narrowly approved restaurant only sales a few years ago.

Harrison said most of the tax revenue from passing the referendum will go to the police department. He estimates it could increase their annual tax revenue by $50,000.
