There are ppl in the city that don't approve of it and I'm sure they will vote but talking about not letting county vote either they have there own laws and the city now sells beer but county don't who voted on that?
My father fought in WWII ,for the freedom of the people. Even if the city gets to vote. It should be as the people want it. No religion or any other belief should override what the people want.
If you vote y yes,and it passes,and new business come because of it,then your yes p played a part in that.you must however take the bad with the good. Now I realize this is not what people today want to hear,but it is still the truth.

I agree with Gtown71. People fought and died so people could have the freedom to vote. Either way you vote, at least vote. Otherwise don't complain about how things are.

If you live in the city and not sign the petition, several places have it where you can sign or goto www.corinthforavote.com and download it. You don't have to be for it or against it, just get it out for a vote.

You have well spoke. If they want it,they can get it,only a 20 min drive. Have you seen any new restaurants come to any place that sells it? Sabbath? Baldwin? Cherries al ? If they do not have any new ones,and have even lost some they do have,what makes you think corning will get any ? This is what the believers try and sell people on,yet you can look at any town that sells it,and know it does not work !
When the last time a person been killed driving to Baldwyn or in Baldwyn for that matter of fact trying to buy liquor? Your point is a moot issue. Now if the MHP was reporting 5-7 fatalities every week or month then I would agree liquor should be KEPT out of Alcorn County. Hell people have wrecks all day on Hwy 72 without liquor so. So my point is it's already dangerous driving in Corinth when the sun is out and no liquor!!! Lol. But back to my original point I was making, it's been years since I've heard someone crashed into a tree and killed themselves or someone else by driving to TN or MS to get liquor? Make it safe and legalize it here.
Yep

Why are all you people against liquor so stupid? You think just because it gets voted in suddenly people are all gonna start drinking and having wrecks? Those that drink will find it and drink regardless. Those dumb enough to drink and drive will do it regardless. Why slow down growth of this town because of a few stupid people? They will get it somewhere either way. Those that don't drink won't suddenly begin to just because it's sold here. You think if cigarettes where not sold in Corinth than suddenly became legally available that everyone would suddenly start smoking?? Get off it people. You cannot prevent bad things just from keeping alcohol out of here. Of course the first wreck that occurs after it is brought back will of course be blamed on liquor being voted in, but that's typical for Corinth. It's always someone or something else's fault, never our own lack of common sense.

If it gets voted in you will see more people start drinking because it is more readily available. This will lead to more alcoholics. Which will lead to some folks losing their jobs which will lead to kids having to do without. It will lead to more domestic abuse. If you've been around drinking very much you know that some people act different on liquor than they do on beer. Some get a lot meaner. It does come to the individual. They are ultimately responsible for their actions but one put the temptation out there? It's like taking a kid and putting him in a room of candy that doesn't belong to him unsupervised. He may be an honest kid but you put that temptation in front of him like that and odds are he's gonna steal some of it. Take a man who is a faithful husband. Put him in a room with a bunch of naked women for a couple days. Odds are when he comes out of that room he won't be able to say he's faithful anymore. Not saying those are the cases with everyone but when you put the temptation there if makes it harder
Yeah what ever

Looking at previous posts its obvious people are not facing the fact that liquor is being bought and brought to alcorn county ad it has for years. Twenty minutes east or south of here gets what you want. People liquor flows into this county and revenue flows out. Embrace the fact that homes are broken now, people are dying of alcohol related deaths now, and liquor is here now. Making it official opens up revenue opportunities not presently available. Give it an opportunity to share some benefits. What jobs and taxes that will come of it are not present now, alcoholics are here now and will come and go. Quit hiding behind scare tatics because what your claiming will happen, IS happening already through beer, meth, and of course liquor already being bought. Making it legal gives us an opportunity to at least ale money in this are where it's already going on. Grow up and start showing some fiscal responsibility for the area you live in by helping the tax base and providing growth in our economy.

Sigh...you'll never get it. So because of this theory we should stop the town from any possible growth. Once again, people need to be responsible for their own actions. You CANNOT punish the whole town. Where did you eat dinner last night? Let's say it was Dinner Bell, purley for example. well, I love dinner Bell and the "temptation" of thier delicious food is causing me to over eat and have health issues. Should we ban Dinner Bell according to your theory? Sounds pretty stupid, eh?

I agree with you 100% that people have to take responsibility for their own action. But some things are not worth it. If you want to drink then do it it. Bit you will be affected by it coming in to this town. And there will be negative effects. What are you gonna do when your neighbor or brother or cousin becomes an alcoholic when they otherwise might not if it weren't available for them to pick up on the corner on their way home from work? What if that person starts abusing their spouse or their kids? What if that person loses their job because they'd rather drink than go to work? It may not happen to you but unless you are a recluse it's gonna happen to someone you know. Liquor is not the answer to growing this town. You're not gonna vote it in next month and come January first this be a boom town. It's going to take community leaders out campaigning and trying to get jobs in here. There is no reason we should not have had more business off of the Toyota plant. But our leaders are not pursuing it. They had rather go after civil war tourists which quite frankly in my opinion is a joke. WE pay a tourism tax year around for a few people to come visit civil war sites. Then we have 15 ( exaggerated I know) city boards..........tourism, alliance, downtown association I'm sure there are some I haven't named. Do away with all them. Make on committee and let them handle all that other crap tem the mayor and aldermen need to be out recruiting factories and jobs. And the people of this town need to quit looking so stupid on this website ( not directed at you NIT) because any CEO that were to look on here to see what is going on in this town would see a bunch of inbred idiots who would rather talk about other people than be productive. We used to be known for having a good work force which is what helped bring cat and kc in here. We need to go back to that.

I know I went a little off course there. Like someone else mentioned earlier people have fought for us to have the right to vote on things such as this and I respect that but I for one will not be voting for it. I do not believe it is the answer to our current problems. I believe it will only worsen them

Yes because if we can make a buck off of it then its ok and the rest of it is just the price of making a profit.......………not. The trade off is not worth it to me
