    ok i can agree with some of what you are saying.we have more problems than just alcohol,thats just one,we have more people drawing a check than we have working, drug abuse is though the roof.this is not the same place it was just 15 years ago.and yes our young people is were it starts making good changes,school is one place it starts.but they are overwelmed by parents not wanting to care of the kids,i heard on the radio the other day that out of 500 six graders in a neighboring county 150 said the last meal that they had was on friday and didnt get anything to eat till monday morning .These people expect the school system to do it.this is one point i am trying to make about responsible people.they are some here that are fine people.i was born and raised here,i love it here ,my family are here i go to church here ,and i work here.but it the back of my mind sometimes i think of moving out.ive seen to much.its just not the place you think it is. sorry i got smart with you.gets the bestofme

    Lake Eries, OK! But Lake Cumberland is Beautiful! The lower lakes have hurt nothing! I am not sure how you can disagree, I have it on good authority that there are a number of students in Pulaski and Wayne county who can't Read, Write or Speak well. That's way more important and needs way more attention than a few beers! I am sorry I believe most of Pulaski are good people and they know how to control themselves, and the last three years have already proved alot! If you are going to Blame alcohol for all the problems, why not blame Sex for rape and diseases, Guns for murders, and Cars for hit and runs? That would be non-since! So is blaming alcohol for misuse! Responsible people know how to drink and like 99% of the world I think pulaski is responsible and can handle it.

    Yep, Ohio and Proud of it.. Your county/state needs to worry more about the middle school and high school kids who can't read rather than a few beers being enjoyed with a meal. Oh and don't worry we will continue to come down and support your economy!

    Nothing good comes out of cold beer?? How old are you? There is NOTHING wrong with alcohol. The problem is the people who drink and should NOT! Yet,those people are going to get it no matter what laws you have. I know some of the things burnside has done. New paved roads, New Restraunts (that means new jobs), New water lines, and as you said "chris" NEW parks and equipment. Also a large amount of the money is being used to fix up burnside state park. Sure it will not all be used for good, but I can assure you somerset is not doing everything it should with it's tax money and they don't have alcohol sales, so don't blame it on alcohol. The truth be told the women of KY started the prohibition back in the early World Wars while the men were at WAR, and when the men came home they never stood up to them. The idea of prohibition was a 19th century idea, it wasn't a Bible idea. It's time for half of KY to get an education and start living in the modern era.

    , nothing good comes out of a cold beer but trouble,i have lived and seen it more than most you combined .their is not enough responsible people in pulaski county to do this right. maybe burnside will build a public park with all this new tax money,thats about the only thing you will see out it,ohh yeah lets not forget about the extra law they have hired to watch out for the drunks on the road.

    First people said it was not religion but it's was for safety reasons, Then three years later the safety record was good, So they started to go back to religious reasons. But everyone hear knows that a certain Baptist minister is a bootlegger, But hopefully this landslide victory will prove once and for all Alcohol is here to stay! Time to get a real job bootleggers and quit living on the government. I for one am proud of the Burnside citizens!

    Wish we could do what Burnside is doing and try to vote to go dry here.

    Stop letting the Baptist run everything that should be sepatare from state. I heard one gentleman say "he didn't want his grandson out drinking and acting crazy". What some people are to blind to see is that when you have legal alcohol sales you have the ABC (Alcohol Beverage Control) who keeps a close watch over sales to minors. In turn legal sales cuts back on bootleggers and under age drinking. The ABC is not a local agency and will not be eazy on those caught selling to under age persons. I must agree with dannt from corbin.
