Ephraim in Door County Ends Ban on Alcohol

EPHRAIM, Wis. (AP) — Voters have lifted a longstanding ban on alcohol sales in a small northeastern Wisconsin village.

Voters in Ephraim on Tuesday approved referendums allowing the sale of beer and wine.

The village has been dry since Norwegian Moravians founded it in 1853. Residents unsuccessfully tried to change the ban in 1934 and 1992.
