Why keep people from purchasing something they can get someplace else? Wouldn't your county want the extra tax money?

And Why Do You Type Like This? Doesn't your pinky get tired?

alchol brings crime.... yes people can get it anywhere, but when it's more easily to get your hands on children go unfed, bills go unpaid, and crime increases... crime and death will increase!

I live in one of the wettest dry counties in North Mississippi. The county is Union county and if you think by keeping a county dry you will keep out crime and keep kids from going hungry, you are sadly mistaken.

There are many people in our county that drink. Some are even alcoholics and admit to the fact.

Adults should not be told what to buy or what not to buy when a substance is perfectly legal.

Since the people who are going to drink will drink regardless if a county is wet or dry, why do we want our tax dollars going to a neighboring county when these dollars could stay at home and be useful to our county.

the only thing that i was hoping for is that if it does pass though that it may be a little help for the economy or jobs. it is no secret iuka has always been lacking for jobs and good pay. i also understand your comment on how a person will get it if they want it. we are surrounded by wet counties so it is not that hard to get and i have always said that iuka was a very wet dry county. so yes we are losing tax money. your right. thanks for the reply

I Believe that the right of drinking alcohol is the right of everybody that's 18 years and older. that's the voting age!! You can get drafted into war!! would it not be nice to have a glass of wine with our dinner. or even enjoy wine sauce over steak at a diner or buy some beer on the way home from a hot day's work. come out of the closet. wake up!! people are driving to wet countys buying stock piles of alcohol and spending money not only on alcohol but on goods and services out side of your county. vote for a wet county. vote for rights of we the people. I hope you can change water into wine in your town.

I grew up in a dry county. At my high school, the kids would drive into the next county to buy alcohol, and then get killed trying to drive back. The most popular boy in school died in a car wreck this way during my junior year. I don't suppose it matters if they drink and drive on booze they bought in one county or another -- the parents need to take responsibility to rein their teenagers in and teach them to make good choices.

I wonder why municipalities will bring the wet/dry issue up for a democratic vote of the people (as they should), but when it comes to smoking, they do what they want without the voters having a say. Several cities in Mississippi have been extremely heavy-handed over the smoking issue lately.

Default my opinion

That is a very good reply about the smoking issue. i myself am a smoker and i get mad sometimes that i can't smoke in some places but it is understandable as i said i am a smoker and i know that it does stink. i just don't like it when people look at me like i am some kind of nasty thug, criminal just because i smoke. i work every day of my life hardly do i ever take off from work. I am a strong family man who has good beliefs and am very caring towards children. If you are going to look at some one for there on choice what about fatty food they consume or salt, but then they say it effects everyone by second hand smoke, Ok well what about every car in the world that is putting off all these emissions that we all breathe every day. I would feel safe to say that one boeing 747 jet plane will put off more harmful emissions in one day than i will ever put off in my entire life. My opinion on this would be get rid of all harmful consumptions and lets all start living healthy and quit being hippacrites, but thats my opinion. kinda like as&$oles we all have one.
