Damn those Olive Hill soft drink stands!

Cincinnati Enquirer June 6, 1914
Grayson, Ky, June 3 - In the Carter Circuit Court here to-day O. W. Tolliver was convicted and given a life sentence in the penitentiary for killing Lafe Fraley, of Rowan County, at a soft-drink stand at Olive Hill, May 16. Tolliver is a brother of the late Craig Tolliver, of Rowan County feud history. 

Apparently those soft drink stands were a magnet for the seedier side of Northeastern KY. That explains why Olive Hill wanted to ban them!
