As state Rep. Randy Wood tells it, his opposition to a bill that would give Anniston the right to decide when and how alcohol can be sold is because the city didn’t solicit his support properly.

The bill allowing Sunday alcohol sales in Anniston caught Rep. Wood, R-Saks, off guard, or so he says. The measure, which was introduced by Wood’s colleagues — Del Marsh, R-Anniston, in the Senate and Barbara Boyd, D-Anniston, in the House of Representatives — was apparently a surprise to Wood. That’s enough to doom the bill’s prospects. (It’s worth mentioning that Reps. K.L. Brown, R-Jacksonville, and Steve Hurst, R-Munford, have also voiced opposition to the measure.)

Hey, now, Wood seems to be saying, give a fellow some time to warm up to the idea. Perhaps Anniston officials and the reluctant Rep. Wood could discuss it over drinks, so long as it’s not Sunday.
