Wet/Dry Vote In Pulaski County Today

Voters will head to the polls today to decide if restaurant only alcohol sales will continue in Burnside.

Burnside voters approved restaurant only alcohol sales in May 2004, and alcohol sales resumed in Burnside in 2005 after more than 70 years of prohibition.

Cities and counties can have a vote under the law every three years.

    240 votes to 104! I think the people have spoken! Good job Burnside, Don't let people force their opinions on you! The only problem still? Some people probably told their friends they would vote NO and then voted YES behind the curtain. Don't be afraid to speak what you really think!

    A preacher thinks it's wrong and now he is pushing his opionions on others. There has been no problems for the past three years, business has been good for burnside, new jobs, new parks, new waterlines, new roads..ect.. the truth be told, pulaski bootlegers are losing business and want it dry again! It's not against the bible any half wit the a little intelligence who knows the difference between drinking and getting drunk knows that the bible doesn't condemn drinking. Jesus turned water into wine, and to say he didn't is adding and taking away from the bible. That's worse than having an occasional drink with your meal. My GOD, wine and bread were considered staples in the bible, basic needs! Timothy said drink some for medical purposes,, one scriptures says it makes man rejoice. Religious idiots and bootlegers need to let freedom of choice alone!

    I am a firefighter on burnside city fire department.I think these people that dont know what they are talking about should let it be.people will get there drinks somewhere eles,so why not in burnside ky.and for the people fighting to stop it dont even live there.In the three years that they sold drinks we may have worked 2 wrecks and they dident get it from burnside.so these people want to pay lots of taxes.then thats what they will get if it goes dry.but the vote went wet so eveyone can let it be.thank you

    i think it matters ,have you ever been to lexington or richmond and seen drunks in a family resturant,i havent .and ive have been alot over the last 20 years.i went to burnside a month ago to eat at a resturant and low and behold i seen 3 drunks in this family resturant.nosense,if we cant do any better than that we dont need it.and this was a nice place to eat good food and a very pretty building,but when you see drunks things like this it puts me in the mind of the boars nest.yeeeeee hawwwww

    i hope the vote does change it back to a dry area. I do not for the life of me see why people feel they need to havre a drink with their food. we recently went to renos with our youngest daughter. i was very surprised to see a bar in the resturant. i thought the whole idea was to have a drink with your dinner. when we were there the bar was full but very few people actually in the dining area eating. we had topass by the bar to eat. iwas sodisappointed in renos. if you want to drink for heavens sake go home and drink. yes you have a rihgt to drink but whenyouu take that first drink and get on the road and drive your right to drink and my rights to be able to be on the road without worrying about drunks on the oad ends. again if you are going to drink do it at home. i get so tired of people saying it would take tax money away from the area if it went back dry. we already have enough drunks out especially in the summer after dark when folks come in off the lake

    I think the wet ,dry issue is a choice if people of pulaski co . dont want to drink that should be there choice ,or dont frequent the places that do .Burnside has prospered by selling alchol by the drink ,new jobs ,police servelance ,new police cruisers ,to make us safer ,plus the industry in the county ,thats here and jobs that are coming in the near future

    does it really matter?? I mean there are drunks and DUI's in Pulaski County before this was going on... This goes on know matter what, so is this that big of a deal???? Dont we have more important things to deal with??? It makes us sound stupid and ignorant... alot of towns in KY are doing this without a negative impact on the community!
