You can have a drink with dinner without getting drunk.Responable drinkers are taking their dollars to other counties and this cost Alexander county jobs.

After working in a convience store here in the county, I never had no idea so many people drink beer in alexander county... The one thing I don't understand is the Sunday Sales.. you cannot buy beer here in Alexander co BUT you can cross Oxford Dam(not 8 miles down the road) and buy beer!! You cannot play poker video games on Sunday but you can buy a Lottery Ticket.. what sense is this??? I feel people are going to buy beer on Sunday no matter what the town thinks.. and why give Hickory all the revenues from it!!!

Don't bet on it. The Baptists ministers still have a strong hold and influence on their ignorant members in the area of voting. Isn't it strange how Republicans preach capitalism and free enterprise and then go on to defeat it at the polls? It will be a hard fight to retaliate against the false propaganda that they wage.

Those against the upcoming alcohol vote will not stop anyone in the county from drinking, they will try to stop much needed tax dollars from staying in the county. If they are truly sincere about stopping their preceived evils of alcohol they would be lobbying to prevent sales in neighboring counties as well, otherwise they come across as hypocrites

The voting was a joke. When you have preachers preaching on it the Sunday before what do you think gonna happen. Come on people think for your damn self...hell your preacher probably goes to any restraunt or Abc store in hickory to get a drink.

big tax increases are on the way
Preachers love high taxes

As predicted the fine folks of Alexander County are getting a HUGE increase in property taxes because local preachers promoted the flow of tax dollars to neighboring counties. Passing this law would not have forced non drinkers to buy beer in Vashti or drink a glass of wine at a local diner. Failure to pass this law is forcing non drinkers to pay HIGHER taxes and these higher taxes will certainly scare business people and developers from investing in ALexander Co.
Hooray for beer

McLindons restraurant at Brushy Mtn. Golf Club , great food, cold beer, wine drinks, they have discovered a way to service the wants of the community despite the attempts of the preachers to take away your right to choose what you want to drink.
