People are going to drink regardless. Keeping the county dry is just showing the rest of the world how backward clay is. To me its like certain powerful groups are forcing their beliefs and morals on the rest of the community. I really don't believe the majority of the people in this county think it should be dry.

It is possible to use the money from alcohol sales to put back into the community. For example, the stores in the other countys are just getting Manchester/Clay's much needed money.

I dont care about drinking but from what I see, the business's here could possibly benefit from the retailing of it.

However the jail wouldnt be as prosperous from it.

That is exactly right. Are these people fooling themselves, cause they sure aint fooling nobody else.

I think some people are so busy worrying about what other people are doing,(WHEN THEY CANNOT CHANGE WHAT IS HAPPENING)< That they lose all perspective.

These people travelling to hazard and richmond are doing more than just buy their beer there. They are shopping there, and eating there. Those towns are making money every time our citizens have to travel there to puchase beer.

And another thing, who would want to relocate to a town that you can't even buy a six pack in legally. I've worked in conveniance stores and it just trips out of towners out that they can't buy a beer here. They act like we are neanderthals or something. And who can blame them.

The only thing these high handed attitudes is doing is helping this town stay down. I think we do need a wet/dry vote.

i already said this on another topic but I will paste it again here:

people in this county are going to drink no matter what. if they're going to buy alcohol, they might as well buy it legally so businesses around here can get the profits. I don't understand how people can praise God for bootleggers being caught, but at the same time rant about how we don't need to become wet. Don't you see a connection?

I'm sure there are lots of restaurants people in Clay County would love to have here, but they serve alcohol. if there are restaurants serving alcohol, or even bars, bartenders are trained to know WHEN someone is drunk, when they've had to much, and they have the right to refuse someone alcohol if they think they're too drunk. They can keep a person from leaving the restaurant/bar and driving home if they believe they're too drunk to drive safely.

if alcohol is illegal in Clay County, teens will want it even more. If something is against the law they feel riskier, braver, and more rebellious if they do it. That's great some of you are in youth programs to stop kids from drinking, but I don't believe this county being dry and full of bootleggers (who are probably more willing to give teens alcohol than if it was sold at a store) will help your cause.

I'm glad to see that I am not the only one that feels that things need to change. With the recent changes in our local government, I think it might happen.

Doug white got voted out, this ridiculous law against selling alcohol can too. I'd like to see manchester move into the real world.

Drugs are illegal too, has it stopped people from using them? we all know the answer to that one. Prohibition didn't stop the use of alcohol, and this ridiculous law never has either. When are people going to wake up.

City of Manchester was wet back sixty plus years ago. they was five or six bars or honky tonks in town. Back then town was where you wanted to be. Now its a ghost town.....

its dry because the law says its dry.the beer cans come from organized crime families that pay the ones that get on here and say it should stay dry.those kids wouldnt be throwing out beer can if it were legal bescuse they wouldnt be allowed to buy it as they are now.make it legally wet,stop the corruption.
