Liquor store to become day care center's neighbor

The Illinois Liquor Control Commission has ruled that a liquor store will be able to open next door to a day care center in one of Chicago's south suburbs.

The day care center is in South Holland, and although the liquor store will be next door, it is across the border in Dolton, Illinois.

The center's operator and parents tried to fight the plan, but the liquor board ruled that, although the center has educational services, it is not a school. So, the liquor license could not be denied.
