Shannon Sexton: Quality of Life high factor for industry location

The Wet-Dry Issue
'We've done the same old thing for a really long time - maybe it's time to try something different and give progress a chance,' writer says.

By Shannon Sexton
Personal opinion of the writer

I can't tell you the last time I had a "cold beer" or a glass of wine. I'm not an avid drinker by any stretch of the imagination. I do, however, feel that I have a stake in this community and how we address our financial issues now, will pave the way for the next generation.

Comments re article 66856 Update on WetDry Petition being circulated

Charles Marshburn writes:
I am curious as to why the social security number is necessary. I am also curious if the names will be visible to all signers of this petition. Some will not sign for these two reasons that otherwise would sign. That is only my opinion. It seems there could be a better method of petition. - Charles Marshburn

Andrew Cowan: Jobs more important issue than Wet/Dry vote

Comments re photo 54516 Wet-Dry Election petition now circulating in Adair Co KY

By Andrew Cowan
Personal opinion, personal commentary

Just a thought I'd like to share . . .

Is really a Wet or Dry vote the biggest decision we (Adair County/Columbia) should be concerned with right now?

It is my opinion that we should be more concerned with getting/creating jobs and recruiting companies to our area. Everyone comments about having restaurants that serve alcohol and how much the money may improve the area.
