Comment: Instead of talking this issue to death, why not put it on the
ballot and let the people vote on it?  Be done with it.

Comment: I THINK THAT THEY SHOULD KEEP CRAIGHEAD COUNTY DRY BECAUSE IT HAS
BEEN DRY FOR THE PASSED 19YRS OF MY LIFE AND SO I DON'T THINK THAT THEY
SHOULD MAKE IT A WET COUNTY NOW. I SAY KEEP CRAIGHEAD COUNTY DRY.

Comment: i feel that craighead county should be a wet county due to the
fact there is mor liquor going through craighead county as a dry county.
it seems that if it is legal then people are less likely to want it then
if it is illegal, kinda like when you are a teenager and your parents tell
you it is bad to have pre marital relations well that seems to make you
want to do it more just because your parents dont want you too.

Comment: We should go wet. It will allow more grills,bars,and jobs. Plus
more money for the city of Jonesboro. Staying dry takes away some rights
of people. I am 13 and beleive in going wet because the Jonesboro econemy
can use the money.

Comment: the issue of wet or dry is simple.  to me it is unconsituitional.
Just the same as prohibition.  U can kill the unborn freely but u can buy
a beer without going 15 mins away.

Comment: No one should have the right to tell me if I can or cannot drink
if I want to; when I cannot tell someone not to smoke even though second
hand smoke can kill me, and me drinking doesn't hurt anyone in any way.

Comment: Or at least Semi-wet.  I don't really care if there is a Liquor
store on every street corner but I like to drink beer with my food. Not
all the time mind you, just too expensive like that but a cold one with a
big steak at Outback would be wonderful!  Have you ever tried to
comprehend the amount of money Craighead Co. residents spend at Poinsett
County Package Store?  I believe that the amount would be astonishing.
Look at Greene Co. and Poinsett Co.  Is there crime rate higher as a
direct result of their being a wet county?  I think probably not.  I have
a wonderful idea, lets put it on the ballot and let the voters decide.
There are a lot more people who feel just like me that would vote for
making a change.  Here's an even crazier idea... could we possibly use the
added revenues that would be kept inside the county, instead of giving it
to our neighbors, to help solve the major traffic congestion problem?  I
think that we should have the choice instead of having a few people
telling me what Craighead Co. wants when nobody has ever contacted me to
ask me what I would like.  If you don't drink, nobody is going to make
you, just let us who drink on occasion have the choice.

Thank You for listening...
