I think they should allow the alcohol, because the people who drink they will anyway gone buy it from some other nearer places, so why giving away our tax income to other county. however we have many tourist attraction so why not make some income out of them instad of giving it away.

NOTHING good comes from Alcohol. NOTHING! Rogersville is a vibrant town and is growing my leaps and bounds. This growth has not been with the sale of alcohol. KEEP ROGERSVILLE DRY!
I am a volunteer firefighter for the Town of Rogersville and have seen the heartache and trouble associated with alcohol.
KEEP ROGERSVILLE DRY!!!

It is statically proven that more people are killed in dry counties due to drunk driving. Do some research their Lentz.

i agree that we are basically giving our tax money to other cities around. The people that live in Rogersville, if they want to drink a beer they are going to go get some beer from minor hill,tn. tennessee is making a killing on alcohol sales.. the last i remember the city of rogersville has some drainige issues.. why not sale alcohol, that people WILL get somewhere else, and use more money to put rogersville back together

Good Job King Morris... Looks like you kept the cities drunk driving accidents around. If you would have actually pulled your head out of your rear end and looked up some information you would have found that alcohol doesn't kill. Voting No kills. Looks like this town will continue to spiral down hill quickly because we don't have much revenue. You love your town "so" much that you want to keep it from growing and being a place people want to come visit.

I have done research my friend. The bottom line is ONE death due to alcohol is too many. Just think.......that death could be you or your family. I certainly hope not. Also......"man up" or "woman up" and don't hide behind forum name (Against Lentz).......pretty funny :)

No.....ah the contrary my friend. The judge has spoken and we are DRY. We are DRY.....period. Our town will continue to stay dry as long as I have anything to do with it. I'll ask the question again..........or make the comment again). If you are so "GUNG HO" on our little town.......how about revealing your identity? Are you afraid? That's what I thought :)

People this is silly! Alcohol in Rogersville WILL NOT promote or create alcoholism; unfortunately it already exists. I may have an alcoholic beverage every so often (I AM ADULT ENOUGH TO ADMIT IT) who cares! What you do in the privacy of your own home...is your business; now when an adult at least 21 years of age decides drink and drive that is an entirely different matter, but I do not believe that the city of Rogersville going wet is going to make that problem any worse. Furthermore, if and when there is a traffic accident involving alcohol happens in Rogersville I don't think it will be because they purchased a 6pk at the local store; it will be from them drinking/driving back home from 20 miles away! In saying that,responsible adults DO NOT DRIVE AND DRIVE! Those that do; LOCK THERE DUMB *&%$$@ UP!

Sure. Come on by. My address is 48 Thornton Terrace Rogersville Alabama. While you're here I'll show you a couple of my shirts that are stained with blood (that I still keep as a reminder) from someone I worked on who died as the result of alcohol. Anytime my friend, anytime. Coward.
