Former Bowling Green City Commissioner Brian "Slim" Nash announced on Facebook over the weekend that he'll be dropping out of his race for re-election immediately to focus on the health of his daughter. He'll make it official Monday by turning in paperwork at the county's clerk's office to remove his name from the ballot.
The Bowling Green City Commission approved the second and final reading of an ordinance clearing the way for the sale of package liquor on Sundays and on Election Day. The 3-2 vote Tuesday night was the same margin for the law's first reading last month.
Mayor Bruce Wilkerson and Commissioner Rick Williams opposed the measure which goes into effect Friday.
