NOt a friend of alcohol

NOt all Iredell residents are happy with the coming of alcohol because of the evil results it also brings. Drunks running up and down the streets will result in accidents and trouble down the road. (We already have kids parking in the middle of the roads to chat and block the whole road.)Some will choose their drinks over feeding their kids and no one can deny the destruction of families that alcohol brings when it comes into a community. Gee I am so glad we got a store now will not be the best news when we bury our kids.

Ach, there's doubters in every bunch. But lemme tell you this. At least the locals only have to go to Iredell to get it now instead of Stephenville, Clifton, or Waco. And what would stop them from drinking on the way back from those places? At least they won't be on the road too long coming from Iredell...

People that drink are gonna drink. The same people that buy their beer in town got it at Walnut before, and Clifton before that. The kids were talking in the street when the county was dry and they were doing it on horseback before that. Iredell was full of beer from other towns before this, might as well put the taxes in our treasury and get some use out of it. Drink on.

You can be afraid of the unknown.....when Morgan
Walnut and other small towns went wet, the same
sky is falling mentality was rampant....more crime
was feared, more policing would be needed....they
were afraid of drunken drivers, etc...and nothing
of the above happened....the roads were safer because the driver is not driving to the next
town over and back...usually they go to the store
and home...
The tax revenue has helped many of the small area
towns coffers....and the same people who were driving to Walnut, Lakeside, Glen Rose, etc...
can now help their own community. The people
who drink are going to drink whether it is sold
locally or not...
