Emerick’s Saloon

Emerick’s Saloon, which was located in what is now the Cafe Carpe, shortly before prohibition took effect.

Good Morning, 

It's Friday, Jan. 17, 2019 and here's everything you need to know to start your day in Jefferson County. 

1. Crack one open this Friday night to celebrate 100 years since the beginning of prohibition. 

When the 18th amendment came into effect 100 years ago today, Jefferson County was far from spared. 

For more about the bars that were raided (hint: some are still around) and who was arrested (hint: members of the county's law enforcement), read here: 

2. Johnson Creek is getting a second Kwik Trip after the village's plan commission approved the plan this week.
