Full story: The South Mississippi Sun Herald

The people of Pearl River County on Tuesday voted to remain dry, reinforcing a century-old liquor law that not only prevents the sale of alcohol but upholds their moral values.

Alcohol=Guns=drugs=debachery=p rostitution=death? C'Mon Citizens Of Pearl River County,Alcohol Does Not Cause All These Problems. The Powers That Be In This Beautiful County Are Saying That They Don't Trust You To Be Responsible Enough To Make Your Own Decisions. They Day That You Are Unable To Handle The Effects Of Alcohol In A Proper Manner. You All Know Full Well That Alcohol, Much Like A Gun, Dosen't Kill People, People Kill People. You Don't Need A Gun Or Alcohol To Commit A Crime. So It's Time To Wake Up,And Realize That They Aren't Saying No To Alcohol, They're Just Simply Saying That You Are Too Incompetent! Aren't You Tired Of Being (Slapped) Accused Of Being To Ignorant To Make Your Own Moral Decisions.Stand Up,Be Counted And Accountable, Or Forever Lie Down And Let "Those Who Know Better" Continue To Walk All Over You And Keep You Down. November6th Such A Sad Day For Us The Citizens Of Pearl River County. For Shame.

When I drive through the counties and see signs urging me to save the family by voting no on the referendum, that implies that anyone who voted in favor of allowing the sale of alcohol in the county is "anti-family." If I want to get a six pack of beer I suppose I'll continue to give those taxes to Washington Parish so that Louisiana schools can benefit instead of my own children's highschool. Also, if someone has to drive all the way to Bogalusa or Wiggins or Hancock to get beer, it's only going to increase the chances of them drinking and driving since there's a 30 minute drive home instead of a 2 minute drive from the corner.

I am extremely disappointed in the citizens of Pearl River County and will continue to support the economies of Slidell, Pearl River LA, Bogalusa, Hancock County, or Wiggins.

well, the voters have spoken! Its still dry as i expected. But boy I sure wish the new mcDonalds rest on hwy 11 & 43 woulda been a Applebee's, or something simular to that. Which do sell liquor, but as anyone who has eaten there knoes, they are not total "bars". and they stay open untill 11 or 12 PM every night!! After 8 PM, there is only fast food in this city,,,except for Shoneys', which is okay,,,,3 times a year!
