It is a shame when the school kids of Tishomingo County have to get out and sell chances on people to win money and selling chances on other things because the school systems in Tishomingo County are so broke. They cannot buy all the books and the accessories that the kids need to have. Instead of our young youth having to go out and sell our chances I believe we could find a better way to resolve this issue. What is so bad about this is that it is the people of Tishomingo County fault that this is going on. Back when I went to school the schoolís had plenty of tax money to finance the children with their school needs. Tishomingo County has got into such a shape that they are so broke. That is the reason that they tried to put a one cents tax on restaurants and motels. If the people in Tishomingo County would put their pride to the side and not worry about what people are going to say about signing the petition we might better our chances of having enough tax dollars for our generation. Our generation and our schools would have enough money to where the kids wouldnít have to go out and try to sell fundraisers to raise money for their school needs. It is not our childrenís duty to have to keep our school system going. All that the people of Tishomingo County have got to do is consider legalizing the sale of alcohol here in Tishomingo County. We would then have a better chance of having the tax money that the schools need. Instead of complain about the kids having to get out there and make up money for the schools, you could sign this petition and go to the polls. Letís vote Tishomingo County wet for alcohol sales so that we can receive the seven cents on a dollar. Otherwise, we are giving it away to Alabama, Tennessee, and Corinth. It does not matter where the beer and whiskey are sold at. The people that are going to drink alcohol are going to drink it one way or another. They donít care if they buy it in Tishomingo County or somewhere else. They donít care where they buy it at as long as they get it. If the people would sign the petition and vote the county wet our kidís wonít have to be out here making up money for our school systems in Tishomingo County. That is not their place to do. It is our place to see that they do not have to do this. They need to be studying instead of trying to make money to keep the Tishomingo County school system going. THE PETITION TO VOTE TISH CO WET WILL BE IN THE TISH CO NEWS PAPER THIS THURSDAY NOVEMBER 15/2012
