Everyone should just be happy that someone wanted to move in to Corning and open a restaurant!! As for the alcohol issue everyone needs to lighten up, alcohol is not the "devil" everyone thinks it is. The people that go in there are not going to get pants shitting drunk. They are going to have a drink or two with their meal.
why can't they have a drink or two at home

If you guys want to have logical discussions go with both views.

View one - why can't they have a drink or two at home?

View two - why can't the people that object just have a meal at home?

I love a good debate. It's even better if it can be kept to the meat of the discussion and doesn't end up going to name calling and cussing.
view one and two

Why shouldn't they be allowed to go out and have a drink?! The people that go into restaurants and drink are ADULTS. They should be allowed to make their own decisions. Their decisions should not be made by some Baptist Bible Beater who thinks if you have one sip of alcohol you are going to hell!
Oh yeah

I like to have a glass of margarita with my fajitas.

One is my limit and if I have one, my spouse doesn't and they drive. And vice versa.

Where in the bible does it say that you should not drink alcohol? Give me scriptures.
Oh yeah

Judged:

1

Scripture contains many warnings regarding the drinking of alcohol (Leviticus 10:9; Numbers 6:3; Deuteronomy 29:6; Judges 13:4,7,14; 1 Samuel 1:15; Proverbs 20:1; 31:4,6; Isaiah 5:11,22; 24:9; 28:7; 29:9; 56:12; Micah 2:11; Luke 1:15).

However, Scripture does not necessarily forbid a Christian from drinking beer, wine, or any other drink containing alcohol.

In fact, some Scriptures discuss alcohol in positive terms. Ecclesiastes 9:7 instructs “drink wine with a merry heart.” Psalm 104:14-15 states that God gives wine “that makes glad the heart of men.” Amos 9:14 discusses drinking wine from your own vineyard as a sign of God’s blessing. Isaiah 55:11 encourages “yes, come buy wine and milk…”

What God commands Christians regarding alcohol is to avoid drunkenness (Ephesians 5:18). The Bible condemns drunkenness and its effects (Proverbs 23:29-35).

Christians are also commanded to not allow their bodies to be “mastered” by anything (1 Corinthians 6:12; 2 Peter 2:19). Drinking alcohol in excess is undeniably addictive. Scripture also forbids a Christian from doing anything that might offend other Christians or might encourage them to sin against their conscience (1 Corinthians 8:9-13). In light of these principles, it would be extremely difficult for any Christian to say he is drinking alcohol to the glory of God (1 Corinthians 10:31).

Jesus changed water into wine. It even seems that Jesus drank wine on occasion (John 2:1-11; Matthew 26:29). In New Testament times, the water was not very clean. Without modern sanitation efforts, the water was often filled with bacteria, viruses, and all kinds of contaminants. The same is true in many third-world countries today. As a result, people often drank wine (or grape juice) because it was far less likely to be contaminated. In 1 Timothy 5:23, Paul was instructing Timothy to stop drinking the water (which was probably causing his stomach problems) and instead drink wine. In that day, wine was fermented (containing alcohol), but necessarily not to the degree it is today. It is incorrect to say that it was grape juice, but it is also incorrect to say that it was the same thing as the wine commonly used today. Again, Scripture does not necessarily forbid Christians from drinking beer, wine, or any other drink containing alcohol. Alcohol is not, in and of itself, tainted by sin. It is, rather, drunkenness and addiction to alcohol that a Christian must absolutely refrain from (Ephesians 5:18; 1 Corinthians 6:12).

Alcohol, consumed in small quantities, is neither harmful or addictive. In fact, some doctors advocate drinking small amounts of red wine for its health benefits, especially for the heart. Consumption of small quantities of alcohol is a matter of Christian freedom. Drunkenness and addiction are sin. However, due to the Biblical concerns regarding alcohol and its effects, due to the easy temptation to over-consumption of alcohol, and due to the possibility of causing offense and/or stumbling of others – it is usually best for a Christian to abstain entirely from drinking alcohol.

Clay county is NOT keeping anyone from drinking alcohol who wants to , they will drive to another county and buy it and bring it back to Clay County. we are "as a county " losing money by sending the customers away. We could use that tax money to better the county. Your going to have drinkers no matter what!

In the words of Gram Parsons:

"The news I could bring I met up with the king
On his head an amphetamine crown
He talked about unbuckling that old bible belt
And lighted out for some desert town"

"Out with the truckers and the kickers and the cowboy angels
And a good saloon in every single town"

Get it?

Back before Corning's El Acapulco opened, my wife and i went to Kennett and ate at the one there. We just wanted a nice quiet evening out, but we got seated next to these two couples, well, one of the guys was obviously drunk, talking as loud as he could, he really thought he was funny and cute! He was so loud we couldn't even hear each other talk. The little Mexican guys, you could tell, were afraid to approach him because you could tell all it would have taken was one word and he would have become belligerant. Needless to say we ate in a hurry and left. Let 'em stay in Kennett. All you people talking about liquor in Corning are talking out the wrong side of your mouth, as soon as it got here you'd all be bitching about that, too!
whatever

clay county should rethink the whole "dry county" issue anyway. at least then we would be spending money here instead of taking the short drive to the stateline and contributing to missouri's revenue. besides, just how dry do they think it is when it's only 10min to the liquor store? and another thing, just how many damn churches does corning need, i mean really. They should be more concerned with providing things for the kids to do instead of shutting everything down and adding more churches, banks, and car dealerships. But all they want to do is complain about the "juvenile delinquents" when all they leave for the kids to do is drugs and sex. come on people

cry cry cry. I dought it was as bad as you say. and if the man was being loud you could have asked to be moved to a different table. If it was very bad they would have asked him to leave, I know for a fact they have bigger mexicans who work there that could have approached him if need be.

Alcohol isn't to blame. My friends and I go out have a good time and we get loud without drinking. Some people are just too sensitive.

3 gallon beer (one case) of AR taxed in AR dry county, but NO out of state. Truckers pay AR state to drive their 'rigs' on AR highways. If there a difference for cars/pickup trucks? Cigs,
liquor and gas are cheaper in MO because of TAX. GMAC

Corning's El Acapulco- you can bring your 'bottle' as long as business allows. They can not sell or serve, but you can bring your own Ark taxes alcohol.
It is business decision. You can ask for private room.
Serve your self. The operative word, phrase, is AR
taxes. 1 gallon hard spirits or 3 gallons beer dry
county AR taxed.

You say NO missouri alcohol is allowed in ARK., you know thats Bull Shit! people buy alcohol everyday in Kennett and bring it to Rector and Piggott and all parts of clay county. You can buy alcohol in Missouri and bring it to your home in Clay County.
