Child Molesters Bad. Easier Access To Liquor Good.

Bakersfield made our local news today. Attention all sex offenders, neighbors don't take too kindly to you moving into their neighborhoods. Sweet dreams Mr. Stoll.

(katu.com) Unlike California, which licenses supermarkets, corner stores and bars to buy and sell spirits, Oregon is one of 18 control states, which means the government owns the liquor at some point in the distribution line. The OLCC, created at the end of Prohibition, buys, stores and contracts with selected retailers to sell distilled spirits as part of its efforts to protect the public from alcohol-related problems and to generate money for the state.

OLCC states that: 1) Except for Sundays and holidays, all retail liquor stores must be open between the hours of 12 noon and 6 p.m. Retail liquor stores may not open earlier than 7 a.m. or close later than 10 p.m.

2) Except for Sundays and holidays, retail liquor stores will be open a minimum of eight hours each day.

3) On Sundays or holidays, retail liquor stores may be open for any number of hours, but may not be open before 7 a.m. or after 10 p.m. Sunday and holiday openings are optional for Retail Sales Agents.

Oregon, things look different here.
