Mark Hale: A NO vote, but outcome shouldn't divide the county

'I for one will be voting NO but it is not to deny another something they want. It is to live with a clean conscience knowing come judgement day I will answer for all I've done both good a bad,' he writes. But also says, 'Regardless of the outcome I will still love Adair Co. and it's citizens. This is not something that should devide our wonderful community.' - MARK HALE

Personal Commentary

Ed, First I would like to thank you for posting comments from both sides of the wet/dry issue. It is important that the large coverage you have is used fairly and considers each of our citizens opinions.

I have read good and bad arguments from both sides of this issue. No matter how it's argued, that argument can be refuted with another opinion.


I travel many different places, most of which are wet. I am used to seeing it in just about every town I go to. It all seems normal and common to all that live there.

They come to our town and find it strange to be dry. While I don't find it strange to be in a wet town that's how the people there want it, it will be strange to see it in our little town. I personally have friends that have moved here from places far from here that enjoy the dry county and say we don't realize what we have. They feel we take it for granted. I suppose that is correct.

I for one will be voting NO but it is not to deny another something they want. It is to live with a clean conscience knowing come judgement day I will answer for all I've done both good a bad.

Would voting yes be my worst offense? Would it even be an offense? I can't answer that. There is but one judge. I will have many offenses to answer for, all of which I am not proud of, but I have confessed my sins unto God our creator and repented of those both in public and in private.

I do not feel I can intentionally commit a sin and think God will approve of that.

I'm not saying voting for Adair county to go wet is a sin; but as for me and my conscience I know I will one day have to answer to the almighty God for everything.

This will be one I can say I voted my conscience thinking of eternity with God and what would please Him. I encourage all citizens to vote in this issue. It is out right. One of the few we have left. Let your voice be heard.

Regardless of the outcome I will still love Adair Co. and it's citizens. This is not something that should devide our wonderful community.

Either way we will still be a great community with wonderful folks and friends. Love to All, - Mark Hale
