Corinth will not immediately "grow."

Jobs created will only be about less than 30, directly and immediately.

I have personally known many business men- who conduct business in Corinth, choose not to stay here due to the simple fact that liquor is not served here.

Corinth not only looses tax revenue, but also hotel profit from such losses.

Alabama, Baldwin, and Savannah collect the tax revenue of all purchased liquor that directly comes from our city. Taxes that belong in our city.

If you support "Shop Corinth First" then you should also support a vote for "Yes."

Fact: Liquor is very much present in our city already. Voting "yes" only makes such purchasing within our city an advantage to our streets and economic welfare.

Do not be fooled by the social propaganda that would like you to believe extreme negatives. They are the enemy of freedom. They are the enemy of the prosperity of our community.

Are there negatives? Are there positives? We control our homes. The home is where our responsibility lies. Do not allow mind washing and narrow-mindedness to contort you.

I wish people would understand that voting yes isn't a bad thing. It doesn't mean there will be sloppy fools drunk off their tail running the streets. We've already got plenty of those without the vote being brought in! Beer is much worse than liquor and much easier to to cause problems. I've heard the problems first hand that beer caused; however the call volume received due to liquor (illegal , of course) were practically negative.

Also, people need to realize that Corinth has too less of a population to bring in "big chain" restaurants. For these types of establishments to come to Corinth, there first has to be growth and to have growth we MUST have industry! How will legal liquor help, naysayers may ask?!? It would be shown as a staple, a symbol of stabilization. The chances of industry "possibly" taking a look closer at Corinth would increase. Industry knows what beer will do to employees, the call ins, the missed days, the domestic disputes. Liquor, believe it or not, doesn't have that kind of outcome. You can look that up in larger city call volumes when it comes to crimes and liquor involvement. It almost always concerns beer related crimes.

Are there a few that may cause trouble here and there? Yes, I am sure there will be however, I personally don't see an increase in call volume at the 911 center or PD other than what already exist in our county as a whole.

I agree. Voting yes doesn't mean our town is going to go to shambles bc we will get liquor! It's beneficial in many ways! Like everything, there are negatives but I'd bet positives might out weight the negatives in the long run!

It's all good folks, no bad.
Don't let a bunch of narrow minded people brainwash you into voting no!
Just let us narrow minded people, who are voting yes, brainwash you into voting yes.
keep all money in corinth, so if it passes, there should be no reason whatsoever for you to go to any other city, for any reason!
We will have hard booze, what more can you want?!?!?
I just pray all them wealthy men, who have denied corinth their goods, will please forgive our stupidity and forgive us, and please please please open the stores and such, that you wanted to, if only we had liquer.
Plus I hope we get to host the next olympics. Lol
Bad spelling, but funny!:)
What do you mean never go to another city? People leave Tupelo and go to Memphis all the time but guess what? If they don't really want to they don't have too. Tupelo has grown so much they have everything they need. Why would they come to Corinth if nothing is there but a freaking slugburger joint and cold beer? However, if George Strait comes to the Arena now people from Tupelo and Jackson and even Memphis might visit Corinth for 3 or 4+ reasons now.

1. The Live Concert
2. Available Alcohol & Beer
3. Several restuarants to dine at before the show
4. Decent hotel to stay at and drive back the next day.
5. The next morning eat at IHOP or other new restuarants that open.

So now you have money pouring into Corinth from several different avenues let me start explaining and backing up my theory.

1. Gas stations profit from purchasing gas once they get into the city.
2. The Arena (obviously)
3. Cheddars if they open one.
4. Hotel that night
5. Walmart or Walgreen if they need someone why in the area
6. Papa Johns or Pizza Hut if they only wanted pizza

And that's just a family of (2).

Imagine if Disney on Ice came to the Arena.

You're looking at 8,000 people coming to the City with their kids and staying the night. They may even open up a Chuckee-Cheese and that keeps people in Corinth all weekend. As of right now people blow right pass it hoping all the lights turn green.

Yes...Disney on Ice and a mixed drink! Now that's thinking!!! Gees!!

We will not get all these upper class restaurants because of liquor! We do NOT have the population to bring ANY of these things into Corinth! We first must have a ground for industry. Yes, those things MAY come, but it would be MUCH later and AFTER economic growth took place.

Until then, enjoy a beer with your slugburger with thanks to"old money" Corinth!

I agree totally with what you've said here. The opponents do not understand the concept of a secular society where everyone is free to choose for themselves what is best. Unfortunately they want to coerce everone onto living within their percieved best norms whether the general public sees it that way or not.

If we get liqour those who want to buy it can and those who don't think it's right don't have to. What is unfair about that? That is the way secular society should work. We don't need these constant battles where organized religion seeks to impose it's values on the rest of the people.

I've the United Dry add on the radio and it's clear that this group is not concerned about the economy or the future of Corinth. What they want is to impose there will on everyone else no matter the consequences.

VOTE YES !

There are atleast 4 pizza places in Corinth to choose from

When luke Bryan was here people came from farther than Memphis to see him. Lots of people from out of town drove home drunk. They didn't want to stay here. Gas stations make very little off of the gas they sale. Lots of times they just break even. Their profit comes from the merchandise inside the store so if someone is just wanting gas they have made no money. The ones making money off the gas are the ones providing it to the stations.

If someone is coming thru Corinth they are not goin to see a chuck e cheese sign and say hey let's stop and spend the weekend here.

The arena would make more money if they pursued more talent but even then it will be hard for our small arena to compete with Memphis and tupelo because they are already established. We are not a tourism town despite what the city leaders want to tell you. We make some money off the civil war but that is because we are the biggest town close to Shiloh. The folks going to see the civil war stuff are mainly old folks and they could care less if they could buy a sex on the beach with their steak. They are here to sleep and see old war trails and statues and cannons. We are a certified retirement community. Kids on spring break do not pick Corinth to come to so they can see civil war stuff. We need to be focused on industry. An industry wanting to locate here could care less if we serve liquor. They want to make money. A lot of them want to open up where there is no union. They want a good workforce. These companies do Internet research on towns before they locate there. Guess what comes up on a search when you google Something about Corinth. Topix. If I were a corporation leader and saw the kind of inbred looking who's sleeping with who and who is gonna get beat up this weekend posts on this towns site I wouldn't want to come here either. The people of this town are the ones digging its grave and if liquor is votes in all its gonna do is add more shovels to the digging and maybe some power equipment.

"The man" used loosely here. You want to impose your will on everyone by having it here. What's the difference? There is none. All of you yes people just want to make so everyone can get drunk anytime you want. The no folks would like to keep our kids and families safe. I know I know we already have beer. I'd vote against that if if we're on the ballot too. But like I've said before there are a lot of people who don't drink because they don't like the taste of beer. There are going to be a lot of people who drink some wine or mixed drinks when they are out and think they are ok to drive when they aren't and they will have wrecks. There are going to be some men who start drinking liquor that usually drink beer. Some of these men are going to be mean when they get drunk on liquor because it affects then differently than beer and they are going to fight more or they are going to go home and abuse their kids or wives. Their kids are gonna do without so they can have their drink. Your right tho it will open up jobs because there are going to be jobs open up because some people are going to become alcoholics and lose their jobs because they don't go to work. Heaven forbid if some of the things I mention hit close to home for you in the future. Just remember you voted to allow it to happen. It would be different if the people here could drink responsibly but they can't. They can't even have their own forum on a public site and use it responsibly. How are you gonna feel when your daughter or niece goes out with some boy from school and that boy has snatched some of daddy's jack Daniels from the cabinet. Daddy had it because it was convenient for him to stop on his way home from work and pick it up. If he had to drive 30 minutes to go get it he would not have went out of his way to get it. Anyway back to this boy and girl. This boy decides to take the girl out riding the back roads drinking some whiskey and coke. Excuse my bluntness here but the boy has some in him and he gets horny. The girl don't want to have sex. Well the liquor has made the boy mean unlike the beer he usually drinks from time to time. He doesn't like it that the girls said no. He slaps her around a little bit. He still isn't happy so he rapes her. Well he's got what he wanted so he's either gonna leave her on the side of the road or take her and drop her off somewhere he decides to take her and drop her off somewhere. On his way because he is drunk he has a wreck. Since he's drunk and limber he walks away with a few scratches but the girls isn't so lucky. She's paralyzed So now because liquor was voted in a dad has had the convenience to stop by the corner store. Because of that convenience someone's innocent daughter has been beaten, raped and left paralyzed.

Long story I know and kind of rambling probably. Is that story guaranteed to play out if liquor is voted in? No. Is it possible? Yes. Very possible.

Lame very very lame. What you're saying is we don't have this and that and theres no reason to try. We just can't do any better.

We can do better and we will with the help of the good ppeople of Corinth. People just like you said the sme things about Florenece , ALA a few years back and look at what's going on there now. It didn't happen overnight but it's happening.

I believe in the people of Corinth and I believe good things can happen only if we are willing to turn our backs on the antiquated laws that retard growth and development.

This whole argument is one that belongs in the pages of history and it's unbelieveable that a city is so caught up in this. Do you realize some cities settled this question 150 years ago. What does that say for us?

I say if you want to drink then drink if you don't then don't drink and stop trying to force everyone else to bend to your will.

VOTE YES !!!!

Upscale restuarants/chefs are not always chains. I know several investers looking into opening restaurants that will employ people and give diners local options. They are not worried about traffic counts and popluation statistics. They know with liquor they can survive. 3-4 new restuarants and liquor stores equates to about 90 jobs and additional tax revenue. That's nothing to sneeze at!

Go ahead. Vote for it but if a liquor tragedy hits you or your family just remember. YOU helped to make it possible.

These crazy "bama" people voting no are crazy. Yes i called them "bama".

Definition (n):

Originally, a Bama was a southerner (from Alabama, for instance) trying to blend in up north, but was so obviously country that it didn't work.
Now it's more general and just means something funny-looking, unsophisticated or country as hell.

Just remember for every wreck that has happened because someone had to drive to Baldwin, Savannah, or Alabama to get liquor because you voted it out in Corinth, all those deaths and blood are on your hands. Makes about the same amount of sense.

I grew up in corinth when liquor was legal. I bought and drank a lot of it when I was a teen. That is my main problem with it being legal. It is easier for kids to get if it is sold locally. When I was 16 I could buy it from a local store when I couldn't at the places out of town.

I use to be a drunk and could not control myself; I just drank myself silly. Therefore no one should have the right to drank even if they are in control of themselves because of my weakness. If I eat too many french fries and get obese I will try to outlaw them.

Wrong again because if you don't want it don't drink it. You won't have to buy it just because it's on sale here. Bullcrap.

When I go to Logans I don't order alcohol because I don't drink and it's just fine with me if someone at the next table wants to drink. That's the freedom loving attitude we must have in order to move forward.

Drink if you want don't drink if you don't like it. Freedom ! yes !

When are you 'no' people going to realize that liquor is already here in corinth. Those that drink just travel to get it. They are just giveing their money to another city. Also, your country clubs serve liquor, its private, so liquor is here.
If someone lets their kids and family go bc of liquor, then they are doing it now, without liquor being sold here, again, they just go out of town and get it.
Read a big lie today on one of the pamplets saying liquor was worse then meth, cocaine. Maybe then we should legalize those, is that what the no's are saying?
