Marsha Walker: Supports comments because it's a right

Personal Commentary: Wet/Dry vote

Marsha Walker writes:
I like Linda Waggener's comments about the wet/dry vote. I don't want to be denied something that is available to people in neighboring counties. I think most of our county's illegal alcohol sales are to alcoholics and underage teens, and this is shameful. I have never been to a bootlegger, but I do know their locations.

We will never have a nice steakhouse or Mellow Mushroom restaurant like Somerset has, because a good portion of their profits are from alcohol sales. And the 4% regulatory fee we would receive from the sales of alcohol would be great to use for funding youth alcohol education and having a larger police force here!

This statement is not intended to offend anyone. - Marsha Walker
