Personal commentary

While Chris may have good ideas, they are flawed. While most people who consume alcohol in our county go out of county to purchase, many many more illegally purchase alcohol from our neighborhood bootlegger.

Alcohol consumption in the county will rise significantly if the county is wet, since it would be much more available. More alcohol does mean more problems.

Problems ??? You bet !!! Just look at the number of current violations and road accidents due to intoxication. The roads are already pretty dangerous due to just a limited number of drunks on the road. The last thing we need to be safe on the roads is more drinking drivers.

Look at the number of domestic/family problems that we already have related to alcohol consumption, and how that will rise with alcohol more being readily available.

More alcohol, more readily available, is the last thing we need in our area.

And show me how more alcohol in any town has improved it. You can't.

We must vote NO on the Adair county Wet/Dry vote, to protect our town and our children. - Doug Peterson
