I teased Councilman Mel Olson after the political forum Tuesday night, asking him if he was going to have a drink with Mayor Lou Sebert.
The two city officials had just wrapped up a friendly but spirited discussion of proposed off-sale of hard liquor in Mitchell on Sunday. Olson,Â who loves to share witty comments (well, usually witty) at council meetings and other gatherings, had a quick retort.
“Only if we do it at his house,” he said with a smile.
Olson said while he thinks alcohol is over-promoted and glamorized in our culture, said he has been known to take a drink or two. Sebert admitted during the forum that he doesn’t mind havingÂ the taste of Crown Royal.
TheÂ men differed on Sunday off-sale of booze by the bottle, though, andÂ offered their views on why it was good or bad for Mitchell. What’s your take? Any prediction on the outcome Tuesday?
