What is so bad about having a glass of wine with dinner? I don't understand. I have a couple of glasses every night, I have 2 jobs, work hard, pay my bills. I am not evil because I drink and I just don't get what is so bad.

It is not bad. The only people who consider it bad are those who want to impose their morality on others.

Nothing wrong with a glass of wine at dinner!

It never stops at by the glass! In a couple of years Berea will be like Richmond.

berea will never be like Richmond, the girls at berea could never make a good bar scene.

Maybe a gay lesbian bar that serves organic tofu biodynamic shooters infused with kale juice.

I find it a sham, yes sham, not shame, that the 2 finest establishments in berea;(Papaleno's, and Main Street Cafe) are just a few feet away and can't partake of this potential economic boom.

What a complete waste of a vote. Main Street has big city quality food; and Papaleno's customers speak for it quite often.

I want a pitcher of Stella with my pizza dangit.

I'm sorry if you don't like it, but it wasn't a SHAM. The East Berea precinct initiated the vote and it was absolutely legal. And clearly you have never been to a big city......

Just curious, can a Berea precinct have a moist or wet election without the rest of the city?

I thought the rules for historic moist elections were different from general moist wet/dry.

How can one oppose drinking alcohol on religious grounds when Christ's first miracle was to turn water into wine for a wedding feast? I'll never be able to figure out why certain people oppose drinking on moral and religious grounds. Can anyone explain that to me?

Also about this 'moist vote' and Papaleno's and Main Street Cafe being left out. Larry Shinn is quoted in the paper as saying it will be a long time before the trustees vote on this to allow it to be sold.

So, if that is true, who's idea was it to have the vote and furthermore whose idea was it to limit it to just Boone Tavern? Just doesn't add up.

Read the posts, for heavens sake! The East Berea precinct is the only one located in the same precinct as "a qualified historical site." the neighborhood association did a petition to have a vote, submitted it to the county, it got ok'd, and they voted yes. It is still Berea College's decision to choose to serve, the vote allows them to, it doesn't require them to. It adds up fine, stop looking for conspiracies.

I agree that the vote was legal, etc. My concern is for the alcoholic and their family. I was reared by an alcoholic and although I loved the alcoholic dearly, I hated his problem and so-called friends. It created a terrible home life. I live in fear of having the same addiction someday. Therefore, I stay away from the fruit of the vine.

I seriously doubt that Boone Tavern is going to become the place to go if you are an alcoholic. Dinners there cost around 35-40 dollars and most alcoholics I know drive to Richmond and Monty's to buy their booze.

Yes alcoholism is a horrible thing. But the majority of adults who drink are NOT alcoholic. It is up to the alcoholic to get sober and stay sober. I come from a very big family and there are no alcoholics among us.

But really what I would love to know is what I asked before: If Christ chose to make his first miracle to be turning water into wine, then why in the world do some religions ban drinking? Jesus did it after all. What is the deal?

Are you suggesting that logic and reason have something to do with it?
