Just goes to show you how many people in the Somerset/Pulaski area were going elsewhere to purchase their beer, "and" they have been doing it for many, many, years because of the pressures of religious groups. Look at the fuel that was wasted having to drive elsewhere for what they wanted, and last but not least, look at all those tax dollars that went to other community's uses instead of Somerset, not to mention the profits of the business's being spent in the Somerset area.
I would say the religious groups cost Somerset multiple millions of dollars over the years, that could have been spent on new fire trucks, fire stations, and "full-time" firemen instead of volunteers. Homeless shelters, food for the hungry/starving, help for the elderly and disabled, etc., etc., the list is too long.....

I never did say I know Somerset well, only what I have seen, and have read about. I understand there was a fire in Somerset yesterday, where a sickly man died, and as rescuers tried to save him, he died as his wife watched. Why was Tateville Fire Dept. called to assist SFD?? Perhaps you could use more Firemen or better placed Fire Stations. I'm sure SFD did the best they could.

That revenue is without the sale of hard liquor,which is slow to materialize.
It does not matter ,who,why,or when the alcohol is bought,it is still revenue for Somerset
These are monies Somerset has been missing out on for 80 tears.

That's why the Bootleggers paid protection to stay in business so many years.
If you recalled, One Elderly lady, Northern Pulaski County, said she was paying 1000.00 a month and still was making 2000.00 a month.

Also the Ohio Navy would have beer confiscated, after buying from a local Bootlegger in the Southern Pulaski area, and were buying the same cans back later the same day, from the same Bootlegger.

Just think, "What IF" Pulaski County went WET!

I wonder how much revenue is being lost due to no full liquor sales yet? I personally know quite a few people who don't drink beer and are currently STILL driving north for their purchases. Me being on of them.

WHY is Frankfort still in "stuck on stall" mode? I've not been able to find any credible reasons online to answer this debacle. Anyone have any clue?

I don't see how we can blame it on the Mayor. I was under the impression that once the city drew up their bi-laws and regulations, it ALL sat in the hands of Frankfort and the city had NO say so from then on..

So what's the hold up and can someone please explain these rumors of lawsuits, etc?

Who cares? We just went wet so us alcoholics could get our drink on easier. Don't you remember your posts from before the vote?

You were right all along!

The convenient stores may not have had to hire additional workers, but they certainly have increased their business. I imagine that some of the restaurants that serve mixed drinks have hired bartenders.

As soon as all the local yokels finish their back-room elbowing, could someone post here when liquor stores will ACTUALLY open here in Hooterville?

I'm off to Danville.

He hasn't actually sued them yet. He told them they had 30 days to look into why the city's interest was not looked at when it came to the license they approved. He also wanted to know why we were only allowed 5 licenses when there could have been a couple more. If they do not offer any help during the 30 days, then he is filing suit against them for violating their own policies. The person over the licensing process made several bad decisions before he stepped down and left the ABC. The stores that received ABC licenses will keep them but Wildcat is the only one that has received the license from the city. Once everything is done with the ABC, the other 4 will be issued their license. Wildcat was chosen because of the amount of product they will carry which equals more tax money coming in. They were also hiring the most employees.
