I live in Oneonta, Alabama inside of Blount County and I strongly feel that the more harder we make it for persons to purchase alcohol beverages the more unlikely they are to get out and drive to a wet county to make a purchase! We vote dry as we love keeping our City in Blount County special and beautiful...a wet county attracts more burglaries, robberies,and public drunks that prey on women, and commits petty crimes! I Still Vote "NO" on a wet blount County!

I guess you don't want any revenue coming to our town.Don't you know your children are going to Saint Clair county or Wayne;s in warrior to buy beer or whatever. You are allowing their counties to get the revenue?. As long as you don't vote,thereis no revenue coming here and this town will not exist much longer. They is what it is coming too. They do not have to buy it. Get real. This town is 98% gone. Is that what you want?. If they want beer or whatever they will find somewhere to get it.Think about that want you.

This is a shame that the county is so far behind in becoming a stronger and more productive county in the state. Everyone that drinks isn't a criminal and the ones that would like to be able to enjoy a beverage has to travel completely out of the county to do so. This is money that can be used for education and law enforcement as well better roads. Wish we would stop living in the 1800'saroumd here and quit being so scared. Let our town and county grow.

It is time for the "special people" who want Blount County to "remain special" to finally get off their hypocrite behinds and get their long awaited "special education," and read Proverbs 31:-6. Solomon said to give the wine to the poor and the poverished so that they can drink enough to loosen up and forget their miseries. The "special people" in Blount Count want to do the opposite of Proverbs 31 and only allow the wealthiest in our communities (e.g. country clubs' being allowed to serve alcohol inside of Blount County," access to alcohol. Solomon started his advice with, "Wine is not a drink for kings, nor strong drink for princes and rulers..." before instructing to give the wine to the folks who need it, folks who ARE ENTITLED TO IT. "Special Education For Special Blount Countians... Proverbs 31:4-6" <- This needs to be on a bumper sticker!

ALSO: You can only trust the KJV. NIV uses "beer" for strong drink, but beer has less alcohol than even Kosher wine has!
