  • LETTER: Alcohol costs outweigh benefits

    I located here thirteen years ago from a wet county. Liquor stores are prominent. Beer and wine are now being sold in some grocery stores, restaurants, drugstores and convenient marts.

    I am now hearing the same promotional message that I heard at our town’s council meetings, “we need the money”. It was all about the money regardless of what it will do to some people morally.

  • LETTER: “Dry county is no safer”

    I am for Spencer County going wet. If they ever get the lodge at the lake going it will be dependant on alcohol-by-the-drink. The golf course would do much better if it were wet. If the non-drinkers think there is very little alcohol consumed in Spencer County, they would be surprised to know the reality of it. Many that enjoy a drink at home stock up on what they like. The others make small purchases and then when they run out, drive drunk to buy more and drink on the way home.
