I dont know yall, its been this way for so long. i run this town so hard my teenage years and in my 20's drinking running wild acting a fool i still drink from time to time ( at home) had a few beers today and had to go to lj to get them, thats my choise easy road there and back. ive got so used to having to drive far to get it made me and everybody else i know drink less over the years. i worry about other people not just my wants, i worry about my kids, family and neighbors some people cant handle drinking and we all know that, everybody knows a drunk or two that has to ack out. what im trying to say is i just dont think we should have it so easy for people that dont normally drink and the ones who over drink.

Hardin County needs to be wet or not moist at all. It is just a way for the police to catch more drivers leaving resturants. If they are going to sell it in the bars. Then they need to allow people to buy it a stores. It may have kept you from drinking as much to go get it. Doesn't mean it has kept many people from drinking. If they pass a law. Then they should make every buisness ID for you to buy it. No matter the age. But yes they do need to go wet.

What it all comes down to is money for the county. People are driving 20 or 30 minutes to Nelson or meade or elsewhere to buy alcohol and giving those counties money. Not to mention we are losing on possible big chain restaurants coming to our county because of the limitations on the "moist" requirements, which would give more tax revenue and jobs. More small businesses could grow in the county which would mean more jobs. Students don't want to go to Elizabethtown Community College because of lack of night life. Hardin county going wet is the best thing for the county and the "churchies" need to let it go. Most of the baptist religious people that I know, are closet heavy drinkers driving to other counties themselves, while their church is rallying against it. That's the funny part. Vote Wet Hardin County!

If you brought your kids up shitty enough to become drunks they will find somewhere to buy the alcohol even if it isn't in Hardin County just sayin.
I agree

Agree NOT with what you said, but that you are one Miserable person. Just sayin'- nothing worth the read. Evidently yours didn't do such a great job.

I'm voting wet. I'm an adult. It is LEGAL to possess and consume alcoholic beverages in Hardin County. MILLIONS of dollars are being spent by local folks to buy these beverages in Meade, Nelson, Bullitt and Jefferson Counties -- Not to mention the Class VI Store on Fort Knox. And most of what is bought is consumed right here in Hardin County. All the exaggerating, whining, pleading and bible beating the NO crowd can muster will not stop people from drinking. Even the "drunks" are smart enough to find a bottle. The alcohol is here already, we're already drinking it, AND YOU'RE NOT KEEPING ANYTHING OUT -- Just the money.

I don't tell other people what to do, as long as what they do is legal, and look forward to the day when I can drive to a local package good store and buy legal wine and beer I was going to be buying anyway. If you agree, VOTE WET on October 4th.

Bob, you sound so responsible that I am sure you don't get DUI's. The report today says DUI's are up 27%. Now for the safety of all of us on the road, I am glad (or did we) not have any tragic deaths as a result. People are getting rich; it's readily available. Wasn't that the priority? I have seen people with those huge packages of beer ( and not to judge), but I wonder how they afford it. Also, as long as we don't know 'the rest of the story' about domestic issues because those people get drunk, everyone should be very content AND it's LEGAL. Consequences are irrelevant.

Does not matter what the paper reports. They have their liquor in spite of any bad things surrounding it.
