Joyce Coomer: I would like some answers
If Yes wins
By Joyce Coomer
I have called and emailed several people in government the past two or three weeks, trying to get an answer to the following question:
If the voters of Adair County vote for the legal sale of alcoholic beverages, who makes the decision on how those sales will be made? The fiscal court? The city council? Or will such decision default to the laws of the State of Kentucky?
To me, if the voters decide to allow the legal sale of alcoholic beverages, I think that any and all ways the state allows should be permitted. I do not think that anyone other than the voters should make that decision -- a vote by ALL the citizens of the county -- I don't think that this is a decision to be left up to just a few people.
Since no one in any government entity I have contacted has deigned to answer the above question, I am considering changing my vote from a solid yes for the legal sale of alcoholic beverages to a solid no, especially if the citizens do not get the final say about what form of legal sales is permitted.
For those of you who will vehemently disagree with my Yes vote, keep this in mind -- we haven't stopped the illegal sale of alcoholic beverages in the county, nor have we stopped the sale of illegal drugs in the county, so being against something does not mean that it is not in existence nor that it will not come into existence.
