State approval of a beer and wine permit for a planned restaurant on the White River has some residents worried about other possible alcohol taps in Batesville`s future. The Alcohol Beverage Control Board unanimously approved the permit on Wednesday for Josie`s at the Lockhouse. The restaurant is to open within a few weeks. Residents who opposed the permit say they may appeal. Restaurant owner Steve Carpenter said that his hope is to give nearby college students experience working in the eatery while they are in school. The private club license does not allow him to sell on Sunday and permits him only to sell beer and wine. Independence County is one of 43 of the state`s 75 counties in which alcohol sales are banned.
