That's already a problem without the county being wet. Why not make the county wet and get the money being spent out of the county on alcohol? Those that drink are going to get it somewhere.

don't drink, but many do and more will if it's easier to get. throw in another club or 2 and some restaurants and more folks will be drunk on the road. alcoholism will affect more spouses and children and work production with it readily available.

If someone wants to drink they will drink, they might as well spend their money here. I hope we get voted wet and bars and clubs start opening up all over Randolph County, we need the jobs and revenue here. We don't drink but some people enjoy it and should be able to go buy alcohol here in the town they live in.

Think of this: We are getting a chicken plant which means here comes the Mexicans. Now we get liquor stores and here comes more problems a bunch of drunk Mexicans!

If this is going to be a dry county it should be completely dry, close down the Legion and the Moose Lodge and revoke the Country Clubs liquor license, this is the wettest dry county I have ever seen.

If this county goes wet then Jesus will kill a puppy.
pros and cons

I see pros and cons either way. I guess at the end of the day though I do agree that people are going to get it anyway. Why not reap the financial benefits locally.

Still think it should at least be on the ballot...but trying to catch the only 2 people at the Napa on Hwy67N is ridiculous!!! We have been there for the 4th time to sign the petition...and AGAIN......no...sorry....the only 2 people who can let you sign aren't here....WTF???
They give a new excuse each time....one making deliveries and one not here today......both at lunch....we aren't even going to try anymore...how much longer are the petitions going to be out for us to TRY to get it on the ballot?? AND....where else can we sign petitions????
(As far as Mexicans and jobs at Peco....maybe other RACES should go there and take the jobs.....ohh...maybe then you wont get to complain about Mexican workers....shame...at least they DO work...doing any jobs they can find....not like all the lazy people who already live here on welfare and food stamps)
