why cant i buy a beer to go here. have been told its because of the church people. well as i walk the streets and attend church. i see lots of fat people here. well to be a glutton is also a sin. so why dont they arrest these people for that or not serve them because of there weight?.

are you touched in the head? because you can't go to a real liquor store in county, you want fat people to be arrested?

The liquor laws are in effect until a vote is made to change them. the "machine" has done a well enough job at squashing any initiative to do that. If you want it changed, perhaps you can try to get something on the ballot?

as a social drinker, I can't say I have a real issue against the current setup. I don't crave the sauce so bad that I need to have a 24/7 liquor store available.

i just hate to drive so far for to but a little beer in my fridge. all the holy rollers around here judge people for having a few drinks. but like i said being a glutton is also sinful. so why judge me when they are doing the same thing. sinning

Ah, the great thing about democracies. The majority takes away the benefits and rights of minorities.

The feel of the community is that they would rather keep a wholesome appearance to our city than have it disgraced by liquor stores. If you want to have a beer there are lots of places in town that will accommodate you. And for beer, it's just a quick drive to Puryear. And there are lots of cars with Calloway County plates there to greet you!:)

The people of Murray and Calloway are a particularly degenerate group of people. They are incapable of being able to function in the presence of liquor stores like other people in the rest of the country.

If they didn't go to church every Sunday or were exposed to liquor stores in their very midst, before the week was out they would devolve into some liquor craving man-beast barely recognizable as human whose appetite for sin and debauchery would know no equal.

Sometimes freedom is a bad thing. The freedom to buy packaged liquor or beer in Calloway county is one such case. Be thankful it is against the law.

It's all good. I'll just buy my beer in Paducah and let them have my tax dollars and let Roof Brother's pay an employee to sell me said beer. I'm going to have a meal as well (long drive works up an appetite) so I'll pay some folks up for food and once again, Paducah can keep the tax dollars on that as well. The only local folks getting my dollars are the guys I buy my gas from.

Don't get me wrong, I love Murray, I just wish I had the option of putting a 6 pack in my cart when I go grocery shopping.

Are you serious? So check cashing places, empty store fronts and dirty fast food joints add to our wholesome image?

Why are your driving 50 miles to get alcohol in Paducah when Puryear is less than half that?

I drive to Paducah because the beer is cheaper and Roof Brothers has a great selection.

not only is there a much better selection at roof brothers, but the employees there are very helpful and friendly. and you can stop and eat a decent place as well as shop at decent places! i feel there are plenty of folks in this town to vote wet, but the churchs would pull some stuff like what happened in cadiz and folks are scared of that and would never vote how they actually wanted to for fear of rejection and humilation by there church "friends"! we can't even get a winery here...it's quite a shame!

I drive to Paducah to get my beer and wine as well. Alcohol is a lot more expensive in Tennessee. And I usually eat and go shopping while I'm there. We prefer to drink at home but if we're out we have to go 50 miles one way to buy alcohol. Or we could just go to the Keg, get drunk, and drive home. Does anyone else see something wrong with this picture?

i would suggest you stick to buying your alcohol in paducah, at a cheaper price and go eat and shop. if you do go out to the keg or any other establishment in murray that serves alcohol and you drink, i highly suggest you utilize on the cab companies in murray!! that is not a good "debate" on the topic. for that matter you could go out to a friends house and drink and drive home...still illegal. or everyone that goes out to a bar in paducah could drive home drunk that isn't the argument! the argument is, it's 2010 if i would like to run out in my home town, and get a bottle or wine, whiskey, or a case of beer, i should be able to do so! it doesn't make me a sinner, or a bad person.
