I hear they are going to sell beer and stuff on the square in Scottsville. There building a fancy restaurant in an old store on the square, and the stuffed shirts will soon be sitting there getting tanked on Scottsville Square. COOL! I think everyone oughta get high anyway they want to. This is America, and we oughta be able to do anything we want to. It's nobody's business what I do! Somebody has to make it legal first, but a couple of lawyers ought to be able to make everything work. Let's all get high in our own way.

Dudley Dumass,

The voters of Scottsville and Allen County long ago determined that they want this city and county to be a dry. No alcohol sales.

Yes, Dudley, this is America -- but the voters in a county still have the say whether to sell alcohol or not. It is their business what you do regarding controlled substances.

Only the voters can change the law --in a referendum-- Dudley.

It doesn't matter what you heard about beer sales Dudley -- it's BS. It ain't gonna happen -- no time soon.

So go to Bowling Green or Franklin, buy some beer, sit home on the couch, in front of the TV, hand tucked in your waist band like Al Bundy and get plastered.

First of all your not helping the cause. I think your kind of confused about getting high anyway one wants to. When the high hurts other people then its a problem. As far as alcohol is concerned it should be sold in scottsville,TN passed a lottery now all those funds are not coming to KY and the taxes off alcohol are going to TN. I cant believe this county is so far behind times in our world. But Dudley YOU NEED TO NOT FIGHT THIS CAUSE DOPER

Let the city vote. The county will not be able to vote in this election unless the vote is to allow alcohol in the county. As long as it's a city vote, it may pass.

The election will be county wide. Any precinct that votes a majority to be wet will go wet and can serve or sell. Drinking alcohol and getting drunk are two different things. This is the time that the preachers and the bootleggers work together.

We have not had a dry option election in Allen County for more years than you have been able to vote. So its not been voted down over once in your lifetime. Just to set record straight. Truth is you could always buy a drink if you want it here.

Actually I think I voted it down in the 90's. But, I am well aware that it is available illegally in this county, and I probably could tell you where. I don't drink. I don't want it.

You never voted on it. No dry option election in the 90's. You seem to want to tell it your way. Its not correct.

The things it would change in this town is : More jobs, better restraints, more taxes to fund projects, money not going out of town, new businesses opening. Majority of our citizens drink in Bowling Green, Glasgow, Franklin, Lafayette, Westmorland, Gallatin. Tompkinsville and Ft Run seem to be the only cities anywhere around us that don't have alcohol. Boy that sounds good being rated in there with them. As you can see they are going nowhere.

People who drink are going to drink, period. They are going to Warren County or over the state line to get what they want or maybe even to a bootlegger (if there are still any around). So why not keep the money here and create jobs and earn revenue for this county. Make Allen County wet. Bring it into the the 21st century. I would rather have someone drive a few miles to get something than to have them drive 20 plus miles one way to get a drink and then continue drinking as they drive home. That can cause more accidents to happen. This county is so behind in the times that is not even funny. We have very few fast food restuarants, very few family restuarants, we don't even have a Walmart or a Kroger. This county needs to grow or we are going to dry up and blow away. And no I do not drink. This has nothing to do with me wanting to drink locally. I am thinking about the economy of this county. We need to grow.

"Voters"

When it was last voted down is irrelevant. The county and city are dry by the choice of the majority of people who live here -- regardless of when that vote took place.

In order to have a wet or dry referendum someone would have to circulate a petition and get enough voters to sign it to bring it to a vote.

If we haven't had a referendum in a long while -- as you say -- that would seem to indicate a lack of interest in bringing legal alcohol here.

I seriously doubt that enough people would sign the petition to have a referendum, but if they did it would almost certainly be voted down.

I don't see the problem? No one is keeping anyone who wants to drink alcohol from drinking legally. You can get it in either Franklin or Bowling Green, bring it home and drink it there.

Why would you want to consume alcohol in a public place then risk getting a DUI on the way home?
