Corinth will always be centuries behind modern cities. I am a grown man who has to hide to have a drink when I choose. Excercising your right to vote and applying pressure on this so called city council will always get their attention. Follow the paper trail(money) to the council members that carry the majority vote on issues such as these. We can change and have a say in this city's economic future.

Why hide?
Corinth had hard booze before, and went through the measures to get rid of it?

You are very right. 50 years from now Corinth will be right where it is today, frozen in time.
Does anyone besides me remember growing up here and Corinth and Tupelo were once called "twin cities" and just look at today at Tupelo compared to Corinth. There is no comparison to be seen anymore.
It is sad that the majority of kids from Alcorn County have to leave here to find jobs when they graduate from college. The people that have control of this town own their own businesses and their children and grandchildren to not have to worry about descent jobs.
Just very sad for our community and youth.

I just read the article. I have a relative that attends Oakland and he says that the majority of the congregation live in the county so cannot vote anyway. I guess they want folks to try to convince those that live in the city to vote against.

If you are a grown man why do you feel the need to hide? QUOTE( I am a grown man who has to hide to have a drink when I choose). You will be the very reason why it's voted out. Cowards that want to hide from friends , neighbors and relatives will not buy it local anyway for fear you are seen. Your not going to eat in one of the many great restaurants and have a drink for the same as above.
I live in the county and don't drink at all so i don't get a vote anyway but if your hiding now you will be hiding then.

I think he was saying he has to hide it because it's illegal? You can't just be out drinking in a dry county? So yes, grown men have to rush home to hide and drink. That is so crazy.

He can buy it and take it home and stay home!!! He should not just be out drinking anyway. That's the problem now, tooo many people are buying and driving around with beer. We don't need more driving and drinking , killing our loved ones. I have teenagers that I don't even want on certain roads at night because of the drinking and driving.

To People bringing up Baldwyn:

Have y'all ever considered the thought that it is because the town straddles a county line -one being a wet county and the other dry - AND the reason it is 10 minutes outside of Tupelo the reason is has stayed a small community?

Just posing a question of reason here.

Corinth is thirty minutes away from Savannah, and thirty away from Cherokee, both of which have legal liquor.

Do you want me to go down that road?

Y'all are getting your feathers ruffled for no reason. Thanks to the over 50 population of hypocritical church goers in this town, liquor will not pass. This town will continue to live in the dark ages, business will continue to close, and in order to live, hard working people will move awayto make a living. Corinth will become that "retirement community" it's been harking about for years.

Can you name one business that has closed due to their not being legal liquor sales in Corinth?

Bring it Hun. 30-40 minutes drive time is a massive comparison to 10 minutes. Also with the consideration of 2 major US highways that cross here, the "possibility" of new industry would be apt to reconsider Corinth as a CONTENDER.

And let's face it smarty pants, people would drive to anywhere to purchase it. It is safer to have it in arms length than to have someone driving long distance and drinking on the way home upping the chances of a drunk driving MVA. I'd much rather have liquor at my back door than having innocent people killed because of asinine people like you that look too much into situations. I am a Christian. On occasion I like to drink wine. I also like to purchase a drink with my meals. Is that a sin? Not in MY Bible! You want to argue with me? Bring it. I will even post my name because I don't have to hide. My family is Voting YES. A Christian, avid church goer, and everyday sinner who isn't perfect in anyway. The name is Emily. What's yours?

Strangely enough, my name is Fase. I come from a long line of Palmers. As there are anywhere from a dozen to one hundred Emilys in this area, could you narrow it down?

Anyway, back to the point, in spite of all this puffery you've thrown my way. Cherokee has legal liquor, would you call it a booming town? While Savannah has grown some in the past thirty or so years, it neither is a booming town of industry. Both of these places have have had legal liquor for quite some time and neither are growing substantially.

Also, if you've read any other threads on this topic, you'll have noticed I'm not against legal liquor in Corinth. I think it's stupid just to have mixed drinks in restaurants, though. That's like being out to sea for two months and coming home only to get a handy. If its going to be in Corinth, allow it all the way and have sales in places other than those that serve food.

My main point about this is the incorrect assumption that when alcohol is legalized here (I think it will pass, how it will be implemented I do not know), Corinth will not mark a dramatic turnaround in any direction. Liquor is not the cure for what ails Corinth. To think so is asinine.

Fase, I am a man handler and I was wondering if you would let me man handle you? I like a smart lady who knows the complexities of any given situation. Do you give back rubs?

I never stated it was a cure. I could never attempt to predict what may or may not come of the town should liquor be legalized. I feel that it could be a step in the right direction for the town- a small step, but a step nonetheless.

I also do not believe that food services should be the only holder of licenses to sell for consumption. I believe it is to voted in, it should be all the way.

And no, I can honestly say that I haven't read the other threads about the subject. And also, the last 2 letters of my last name are on my screen name. People can find me on FB. I'm not hard to locate.
