Citizens Split About Wet/Dry Issue
The issue of Wet/Dry will be before voters on June 21, and each day it grows nearer, as the subject is debated more and more.
One of the most successful graduating classes of Clay County High School prepare to take their graduation march Saturday.
Pete Johnson, a Mancunian, visited Manchester Saturday.
33 places named Manchester, across 36 days and 9,727 miles across American and Canada, and Pete Johnson will have fulfilled his life’s dream.
A local pastor and spokesman for Count the Cost, Citizens Organized for a Safer Tomorrow, John Boley says the upcoming wet/dry vote is a vote on morality.
Boley says, “Many arguments in favor of voting to legalized package stores will be made and most will have to do with raising city revenue and shutting down the bootleggers. Some may suggest that alcoholics and casual drinkers are going to get their alcohol anyway, so we might as well make the money and keep the money here. Others will think that people who opposed the wet vote shouldn’t be trying to impose their beliefs on other people.”
Locals in support of the city going wet stand on the platform of increased tax revenue the city would gain.
