ALEXANDER COUNTY, N.C. Alexander County is considering allowing the sale of beer, wine and mixed drinks in area restaurants in March.

Supporters say alcohol sales would help to stimulate the county's economy. But others argue it'll lead to more violence and crime.

Our news partners at the Charlotte Observer report the special election will cost taxpayers up to S25,000.
