I went there today. It's a very nice place, as nice as any liquor store in a big city. Now lets vote this county wet & get out of the Stone Age!

Since: May 11

Once again, county dollars are going to Winfield. For those who voted the country dry do you really think NO ONE from McCreary County is going to go there and spend their money? The county is losing money and it isn't going to make our county safer, or less "wet", it just makes it less profitable. YOUR family is going to spend their dollars there and YOU will not benefit from it. YOUR family is still going to get their alcohol, but YOU still have to watch the school board make choices based on lack of funds for the kids. YOU will still have to drive on roads that are not kept in good repair. YOU will still have to worry about people drinking and driving. YOU will still have a county that is poor. Being wet does not mean we will be miraculously rich in this county, but we need to keep as much of our tax dollars here as possible. Voting this county wet will not automatically make people drink, but it will keep the drinkers closer to home with their dollars. I'm sure each of you reading this already know a person who is an alcoholic and get their alcohol from surrounding counties and states.

Very well said! Call our County Finance Officer, and ask her the last time our General Fund was as low as it is now. Then think about the tax money from alcohol sales we could have had. But it's OK, we will be back! 2 years, 3 months to go!

Now Winfield can have all the things that McCreary county does not have 1000s of jobs, a super Wal-Mart, a Target, Hooters, Applebees extra 10 police and all the other good things in life, just because they now have gone full wet. Winfield the new place to be. Whoopee!!!!!!!

Winfield will have to have 100s of people just to stock the shelfs. Well, anyway that was the story if McCreary had went wet.

It's simple minded people like you that are scared of change that holds this place back. How can you prove that it won't create jobs.

I'm just repeating the promises that I was told would happen if McCreary county went wet. Is there any reason that these things will not happen to Winfield now, unless it was only empty promises when they were made about McCreary county going wet.

I don't remember anyone promising hundreds of jobs, chain restaurants, or department stores. What it would have brought our county was much needed tax money. Who's to say that, with this money, our jail might have survived? That's 17 jobs lost right there. The fact is, we have higher than average numbers of people who consume alcohol here, which is common among areas with high unemployment. These people continue to spend their money outside of our county, taking that money out of our local economy, and giving the taxes to other communities.

You no doubt have short term memory loss. I heard all kinds of promises just to get a wet vote. I knew that most were just a fart in a wind storm but they were still made. Now lets see just how rich Winfield gets. It will be just as it would happen in McCreary Co one or two will make money and 3 or 4 jobs will be created.

And with the town of Winfield receiving the tax revenue, all it's citizens will benefit. They've never had a city property tax, and this move ensures it will stay that way. That is, until McCreary goes wet in 2015.

Saw where they were cleaning out the Rowboat bet there is a Hooters going in the place. Also heard they were putting in a Target where the old ABC building was. Isn't great to be wet here in Winfield and not in McCreary co. We're rich now.

The jail was not closed because of lack of tax money, it was closed because of poor management and nelect. And how does it help making it easier for drunks to get more to drink, it only causes more torment for the families and less money spent on the children of the familes of a drunk. Making it easy to get booze only hurts the people that have to put up with a drunk.

I agree with one of the other posts, I heard every promise there could be to get me to vote wet. I don't drink but if someone else wants to it does not bother me to much as long as the do it within reason but most once they start to drink don't know when to stop. Over the years I have had three auto accidents caused by someone under the influnce, two times I was hit by a drunk driver and once by a pill head. Of the three accidents none of the other drivers had insureance and only one had a license and one of the drunks ran off. Making it easier to get something to drink is not a good thing.

You need to look around. You can get liquor any time you want in McCreary County, we just don't get any tax revenue from it. Chances are, you have a bootlegger within 5 or 10 minutes of your house. That's the best thing about Winfield now selling liquor. Maybe it will put some of the McCreary bootleggers out of business that sell to underage drinkers. Keep those "Vote No" signs handy, though. It's going to come back around at home, and this time it will pass. I'm going to be like the "no" voters this time, can't wait to steal all the signs you put out! After we win the election, we will have a big bonfire.

I'm very sorry you must have the wrong person. I don't stoop to lieing and stealing vote yes signs. I know a large number of people in the county and only know of three places that may or may not bootleg and one of them passrd resently. On the other hand there are many people that maybe in the dope trade. In my oppion both the bootleggers and pill pushers are one and the same and should be shut down. If you lost some signs you are in good company because I think the Vote No people lost some too.
