Why don't they allow alcohol sale throughout the county? I know. Because they are stupid! I don't know if anybody realizes it, but they just go across the county line and get it. Dry county my A**! And on Sundays don't get me started, There is more beer drank then from other counties than any other day of the week. And to think all that tax money gone to another county. Not to mention that we can't even keep a good restruant open in this county either. Start allowing drink sales and everybody won't be going to Hickory and Statesville to spend all of thier money! Sounds pretty stupid to me!

The Baptists have the power and the money along with the false idea that all who drink are going to hell....Hard to beat those odds at the polls. At the recent alcohol vote in 2007 in the Town of Taylorsville that was defeated, it was led by ministers who live in the county...not the town of Taylorsville. Also, the County Chamber of Commerce was too gutless to support the sales, afraid of the reaction of those ministers.

The fundies had people inside the polling station observing. I was extremely angry when I saw that. Do you know who I am talking about? Suspenders, glasses, grey hair? I really hope the next vote goes well.

Figures. I'm pretty sure him being in there was illegal as hell but good for him I guess. Also sad to see those two really good Mexican restaurants go out of business (Taqueria Hermanos Linares and Rancho De Villa). If I didn't still have family in Taylorsville I'd have no reason to go there.

Mexican restaurants need beer sales to counteract the hot foods and make the dining experience more neutralized and enjoyable. I don't see anybody going to hell for their choice of cuisine and beverage, but I do see Americans being denied a simple privilige that should be rightfully theirs past the age of 21 if that is their choice.

Good point, I just hope some brave soul brings the matter up again soon. I might have to make a temporary change of residence if it happens.

The town officials need to begin organizing now by recruiting support from the Chamber of Commerce and business community to get behing the movement, donate money, and a plan to counteract the opposition with willing participants not afraid to work for this end. Also, the voting list for the town needs to be updated. There were certainly questionable votes in the previous election. It is vital that the town promote economic growth by seeing that this is passed at the first opportunity. Come on back to Tville. You know that we are a "God Fearing" community...LOL

Don't change a thing, Catawba and Iredell Counties love to take your tax money, it helps keep the taxes down for their citizens.

There are plenty of good Alexander County baptists who can be spotted drinking in Hickory, maybe they are against sales in Taylorsville because they might be caught. Maybe people can start outing these baptist when they spot them sucking on a beer at Texas Roadhouse.

Good point...It is very loyal to Alexander Countys tax base for her own citizens to take their religious and moral hypocrisy to other areas where God never goes. When was the last time you saw God in Catawba County?

Haven't seen him around here lately, but I think I saw his Escalade at Stiletto's in Statesville the other night.

If the referendum would have passed, I was ready to open a strip joint in the old Walmart building and name the club "The Twin Peaks of Mt. Herman"

The protests alone would have been hilarious.

Bible thumping and Amazing Grace. The traffic jam would expand the Police Department, and rope sales at Feimsters Hardware alone would stimulate the local economy. Every Baptist zealot for miles around would be there to restore decency to Taylorsville. Me? I am eventually found hanging from an apple tree in Perry Lowe's orchard. Once again, the people of Alexander County would exercise the basic principles that made this country great: supression of economic expansion and freedom of choice of the consumer! LOL

The battle has been lost but not the war. Alexander County will enter the 21st century and be better off because of it.

This is a very intriguing conversation! It has a very valid point. Why are those ever important tax dollars going to surrounding counties, I would also really like not having to drive to Hickory, Wilkesboro, Statesville, or Lenoir to get a decent meal! And to think the sherrif's department would also just love to write all of those DWI tickets too! thiunk of the money that would bring to the county, not to mention with all that community service the town park and streets would be clean enough to eat off of!

DWI tickets would probably be less than what they are now in the county. If you sell beer in the county people wouldn't be driving as far to get it therefore less time spent on the road. Those who are going to drink and drive are going to do it no matter which county they buy beer in. Not selling beer here is not going to change that.
