The issue is the same - should a community allow alcohol sales on a limited basis on Sundays.

The reaction has been quite different.

The Shepherdsville City Council has floated the trial balloon on two occasions within the past couple of years. Both times it was shot down.

Now, the city officials have agreed to have some type of mock election for residents in the community. Details are still being worked out.

The problem is that no one on the council is bound by the outcome of the vote.

Just a few miles up the road, the Hillview City Council is quietly moving toward approval of the Sunday alcohol sales for restaurants with an average of 70 percent food sales.

There has been no public outcry, although that could be possible at the next meeting on Monday.

The main outcry might come from an existing establishment who might have to shut his doors at 2 a.m. until 4 a.m. if the ordinance is approved as suggested.

On a controversial issue, it is truly a tale of two cities.
