Comment: Hi, We were created to have and make choices. It's not one
persons duty to make my choices before my Lord. I have to take
responsibility for my actions/choices.  If an adult wants to drink or buy
a lottery ticked believe me they will get it. Every state that borders AR
would loose a lot of tax revenue if this state moved into the 21st.
century. We need more revenue in this state for roads, schools, etc., the
state brakes the backs of the tax payer, just look at the tax we pay when
we buy groceries.  The fundamentalist do not have a right to make my
choices, I am a christian who believes in freedom of choice.  I have a
young person at ASU and believe me Craighead is like Sharp Co. they are
the wetest dry countys in AR! If a person wants to drink they will find
liquor and probably drink more than if they had access to it. This state &
dry counties are loosing more money than the groc. tax revenue would ever
bring in.

Comment: I think they should go ahead and make it a wet county. We have
several counties surrounding us so everyone in Craighead County can get
some form of liqour if they want. Also, many people here in town already
have some type of bar in their home and others can just get liqour from
one of the bars. If it is alright to sell liqour at bars here in town how
come they can't have it at out restaurants? With dinner, it's considered
culture, which this town has none of. But still, why are certain ones,
like the ones who go barhopping or belong to some club be the only one
privelidged? It should be for everyone. If they want to make it dry, they
should take the bars OUT! No Country Club, No Sage Meadows Club, NO CLUBS
AT ALL. It should be the same for everyone. Not just certain ones. This
was voted back in 1944. It is 2003 almost and we need to bring our fair
city up to date. If it means alcohol, that would bring more restaurants,
more everything. We are a growing city, especially because of ASU. Let's
get this town up to date with nice restaurants, some really nice
recreational items, not just soccor or something for the kids only, but
something for everyone and somehting that everyone could afford. If
certain ones don't want to drink, that's great. BUT DON'T STOP ANYONE ELSE
IF THAT'S WHAT THEY PREFER!!!!!!!

Comment: Who is Jonesboro trying to kid? The city is wet for those with
the money to pay for a liquor license. Just make the county wet with the
stipulation that within the city limits, all sales must be in restaurants,
clubs, or Package stores only....no sales from convenience or grocery
stores. That is the city ordinance in many towns, such as Fayetteville.

this a safe, respectable and great place to live.

Comment: We should do all in our power to keep Craighead County dry and
Kait/TV should not try to sway folks to go wet.

Comment: The argument to go wet for the sake of the economy does not hold
water!  It seems to me the Jonesboro economy is doing quite well.  The
restaurants, that serve alcoholic beverages in other cities, which have
come here are packed most every night for dinner and some during lunch if
they serve lunch.  They are especially busy on weekends even without a
special event taking place.
In other cities (or counties) which have liquor stores in easily
accessible locations seem to have more crimes committed.  Perhaps, I do
not hear of as many (crimes) in Jonesboro as there could be.
