City and anti-alcohol group share website names

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) NewsChannel 11 heard a handful of complaints that the city of Lubbock is taking sides in the alcohol election. The City of Lubbock has a committee called Keep Lubbock Beautiful and a website called keeplubbockbeautiful.org. The anti-alcohol group "TAAS" put up a different website called keeplubbockbeautiful.com. Mayor Tom Martin says the city is not taking sides and TAAS did not need the City's permission to get that web site name.

"Well, there is really no way unless you buy up every web address in the world to keep someone from getting a web address. And the way it's setup for people to get a website is if they're the first one in line and they pay their fees then they get the web address," says Martin.

We contacted the leader of TAAS for a comment. Brant O'Hair tells us he was unaware of the City's Keep Lubbock Beautiful slogan.
