The county does not pay city taxes, thats why the county doesnt vote in city elections. The city however does pay county taxes and thats why the city votes in county elections.

why should the city have special rights to vote on something that the county has voted out the county of alcorn voters should have a say in this because if its voted in the people that live in the county will have to deal with it also its like the county has a sheriffs dept and the city has corinth city police but the county has jurisdiction over the city

the county has jurisdiction over the city bc the city of corinth lies within the border of the county, its weird I know, but thats the way it is. Now if the county paid all the city taxes as the average corinthian, then the county could vote. Remember though, city police cannot(are at least arent suppose to)come into the county. I myself however have see city police cars in Tn, and no, they werent on official business. Maybe thats bc the city limits now go all the way to the stateline and the policemen didnt realize they were in Tn, I once had one to stop and walk down to my truck while I was parked in my own driveway bc he saw me drinking a beer, and I live in Tn! LOL, needless to say I informed him he was out of his jurisdiction and he apologized and went his merry way.

O, okay, I think I kknow what your asking now. The first time was a county/city vote, and of course more ppl live in the county and the vote was defeated. This time its a city vote only. Hope that helps some.

But that same relegious person is telling me that I should have no choice.

Dont seem right to me.

If you want to vote, move to the city and pay additional taxes like we do, and then you can vote and have an opinion. Otherwise, quit complaining!
Just because liquor is legal, doesn't mean you have to drink. Has anyone forced beer on you? No!
I like to have an occasional glass of wine. If Corinth votes for this, I will dine and shop in Corinth instead if traveling to Tupelo, Florence or Jackson. That's just how it is.

Whats right is to let whosoever would be affected by the liquor, vote on it if you want it vote yes if not vote no, the majority gets its way, now that is what this country was founded on, my friend.

Do you think that because liquor is not legal that people are not already drinking it? If so, you are wrong. A yes vote will give us the taxes and keep me and others from having to drive out of town to purchase it. I never drink and drive and I am s responsible tax paying, hard working adult. It's all about moderation. It is not a sin to drink. It's a sin to misuse alcohol. I don't understand why some churches ( not all), pick this one issue to harp on. I promise you, my friends, that Jesus is much more concerned about how we love Him, how we love one another and care for our neighbors. Love God. Love Others.

They are the people who have found a way for the city only to vote. Upset, is all those who start topics on anyone who may be against it.

No matter what you say, not one person has a better life, becouse of booze.

Should people be able to buy it, yes if the law says, even though corinth had it before.
Would you be ok, if they wanted a legal house of prostitution?
How about a xxx rated movie house, mabey next to wal mart?
all that would bring in money and jobs.
Why did corinth get rid of all the porn, that used to be here?
Just becouse othet towns have it, it don't mean ever town wants it.
Or wants it back, in this case. Lol
Still amazing how r c j, can cause such a stir.
What about smoking smarty? Why can't I own a bar or restraunt, that has smoking?
Double standards are being thrown everywhere.
Let people voice their opinion, and let the vote take place.
I truly believe corinth will sell liquer soon, so cheers! ;)

This is passing easily and is WAY past due. I am a Christian but don't believe a bit of alcohol will condemn anyone. In fact, it's PROVEN to be healthy. You church folks can just get over it. No one is gonna "make" you drink. OR are you really afraid that your willpower will let you down? Suck it up and let adults in a FREE COUNTRY be adults. Amen.

Just curious, if hard booze is no different then beer, then why does the state of MS say all sales must be final by 10 pm?
Just curios,could it be that many know just what it does to folks?

Plus you being a christian, you might want to read alittle more on what booze does to folks, just an idea.

We "found" a way? Actually, "we" petitioned our state to allow city only voting for "city only matters."
If liquor does not pass, it will be because our city does not want it. Not because those outside of the city decided for us.

As for being "upset" against those petitioning against the sale of liquor- well, I can only speak for myself.

And in such a matter you will find that I am FOR all constitutional rights. The right to vote being one, the freedom of speech, the right to petition and the segregation of church and state.

It does upset me that churches use their pulpits as political forums when they are constituted and regulated by law NOT to. If anyone is performing against the constitution, it is them. And yes, sir, that does "upset" me.

And as far as liquor being a magical wand for Corinth, no, it will not. Anyone with any sense realizes this. But you, sir, cannot deny the fact that liquor is very much present and consumed in our city- in which, the city should be interested in the revenue that other cities are getting.
