I am assuming that you are a group of druggies. You expect us to listen to you. Go smoke your crack we all know you do druggies. You don't like alcohol but you just love drugs, that isn't right. I am just glad I drink a little like a normal person and want to be able to do that in the place where I live. We don't want to do drugs like you we just want to be able to purchase our totally legal beverages where we live. Instead we constantly pump money into the outside economy. I am sure all you money just goes to more drugs so you wouldn't understand.

stop and think about it people honestly. if we go wet we wont have young children of diffrent ages goin to boot leggers and getting alcohol, you wont have people going to these resturants and getting tore up and then drivin. i made a trip to richmond over the weekend, i was carded and a sales person told me that pulaski county is the wetest driest county they ever seen. if the county does not go wet in time we will be the little town of burnside. we have so many people unemployeed this would bring better and bigger buisness here and our employment rates will lower. stop and think people hello. most people dont like to go to these croweded resturants and be around smoke and drinkers.I mean can you name a good steak house here in pulaski..um no! we go wet people can stop by the store get what they want and drink in the privacy of thier own home. Have you noticed we now have 914 that circles all they way around like lexington does. we can grow to be as big if not bigger if we were wet. we are not going to get any good stores, resturants, or things like that until we are wet. if we go wet we out put boot leggers and we dont worry about them. heck i was able to buy alcohol at 15 from a boot legger. I know a lot of people that would back me on this not enough but a lot that agree we need to be a wet county for sure!!

well the under 21 will still be using the bootleggers, as for businessess coming i can only look at the progress burnside has made , now i dont agree with moist status i agree we should have package stores instead, our dumbass drunks and druggies have turned the eating establishments into smelley dance halls, but until you get someone with enough sense to start a petition talking about it is just a waste of time

most bootleggers I know actually card people as to avoid the problems from selling to children. You have no idea what you are talking about druggies or drunkie or whoever you are.

Alcohol doesn't bring wealth to communities. There are slums and hole in the wall towns all over this country that are wet.

Buy your alcohol in Richmond, take it home, drink it and stay off the roads.

I don't know where you geniuses get the idea that drunk driving is not a problem where restaurants and bars sell alcohol.

You selfish jerks would see lives put at risk for your conveniece.

The same Ip keeps posting all these anti alcohol little speeches what you said doest make sense still. There are already bars in burnside where people have to go drink and drive from why not have a store as well where you can get your supplies and take them home without having to drive 60 miles both ways to richmond. Furthermore I have heard of plenty of people in somerset that do just that. Since they cant get their beer here they will sit in a bar get drunk and drive. The prohibition of sales is causing more a a drunk driving problem than it ever hoped to help.

to someone with some sense, could burnside since it has already went moist open up package stores? would it have to be voted in or not? if somerset just votes to go moist it would be the same problem. a county wide vote would allow package stores and bars i think that would be the best way , unless burnside could start package stores that would solve all these drunks problem of not wanting to drive, as for the bootleggers carding , that was funny

I wasn't really "getting it" for a while, but now I think I kinda do. I keep reading posts from folks saying, basically "Well, if you don't like it then move, we don't want you here."
I don't know if that's the attitude of the majority, but if it is then getting a package store within 20 miles of here is the least of our worries. And that is why I say that I finally think I get it- there are (obviously) people resistant to change, and would rather keep things "the way they are" for the sake of their own comfort.
I guess that leads me to my next question: why is it that people would want to drive prosperity away from the county while claiming that the low average income is the reason for not allowing alcohol in the first place?
Logically, it makes no sense to me, and seems like circular reasoning at its worst- or is there something I'm missing here?

I agree with you Burnside should open package stores and the problem for the main part could be solved. Albeit that Somerset would still be losing money just not as much. As for bootleggers carding I have seen this myself when purchasing alcohol a couple years ago. A younger person came in with someone else and wanted to buy and the lady carded him because if she was gonna get caught she didn't want that contributing selling to a minor charge on top of it. I have heard of several others doing the same thing. How long would a bootlegger last if they had all the high school kids filling their driveway all the time.

That is not the point what we want is the convenience of not having to drink at bars or drive 2 hours to get a case of beer. Yes you can get it if you drive to Richmond and back but people don't like doing that when you could just as easily go to a store in town. Save gas time and money while making money for the city and county. It would create new business and jobs in our community.

I think this county needs to ban fast food restaurants and buffett style restaurants to promote healthier eating since drinking is already controlled.
