Re: “Booze wars

Well 70%er last time I checked Conway was in Faulkner County which is still a dry county I believe. And I do understand what your saying and they've been more liberal with granting private licenses, but the economies are quite different and really not comparable. I mean one "little descrepancy" is that Boone County doesn't really possess a university with an enrollment of over 11,000 students. And I'm not sure if or to what extent locally owned businesses were affected by this. And before y'all jump me, "I'm not using the word liberal in a negative way."

Re: “Booze wars

...A "wet vote" will only make the rich, richer. They're the only one's that have the equity to capitalize off this measure. I hear they're already pickin out there plots in Harrison. I'm sure Mr. Crockett already has a personal adgenda and business plan of his own and I doubt it's really what's best for the "Citizens for the Future of Boone County".

And I realize that this measure will only allow residents to purchase packaged alchohol in stores but I bring up the resturaunt sector for a reason, because I think everybody knows where this is going and what's going to be on the ballot next time.

Re: “Booze wars

I think everybody is pretty nearsighted on this issue...yeah it sounds great doesn't it?? More money and more jobs. Well in Boone County you're going to lose as many jobs and businesses as you gain. The locally owned resturaunt businesses in Boone County will not survive a "wet vote". It won't take more than two or three franchises moving into Harrison to put your neighbors, family, and friends out of business. It would be impossible for them to compete against these entities. And the only jobs you'll be creating are server positions because "NOBODY" native to Boone County will manage these corporate franchises that your so desperately trying to bring into the county...
