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.

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.

Jane Potts: Having drinks with meals would help local economy

Wet or Dry?

Jane Potts writes:
We go to Somerset or Glasgow 2 to 3 times a week to eat and I see a lot of Adair County people there. Why can't people understand that if Columbia was wet, we would have good food jobs. If you don't want to drink, then don't. I've had two church goers to sign who said they don't drink, but they agree, if you are where you should be, it wouldn't be temptation and they would not have a problem with it. By why not do more to keep Adair Countians who go out of town to have wine with their meals be able to do that right here in Adair County? And get more people to come see what we have to offer. - Jane Potts
