I live in LR and have dog in this fight but I would choose Mountain Home. The towns are similar in size but in terms of outdoor activities like fishing and boating Mtn Home is blessed with two great lakes and the White River. In addition it has a very good hospital for a city that size that serves the North Arkansas region and pretty good schools. It has become a retirement haven for Midwesterners.

Colt, the only problem with your reasoning is: people who are going to drink and drive will do it anyway and those who want to buy spirits will go to another county to buy it, possible drinking on the way home which can still cause serious accidents.

Uhhhhh......c'mere and lean closer and I'll tell you a secret....

Baxter County ain't dry.

I buy booze frequently when I'm up there.

Those stores on the highway with the neon Budweiser signs are called "package stores".

They sell....alcohol.


Now, ssshhhh....mum's the word..

OK?

I am sure those people that drive into Marion, where along the county line they have drive through liquor stores would never drink and drive on the way back home.

All Baxter is doing is loosing tax revenue and actually encouraging more miles driven while intoxicated, but I guess they need their blue laws.
