"Which is most important?"
What do we the people of Carter county need most, legal alcohol sales or a hospital? Why waste time trying to get legal booze when we should be trying to get a hospital for the people, not to mention good jobs? My husband's job took us to Craig, Colorado a few years ago, and there was a little hospital there (The Memorial Hospital), with 15 beds. In fact, my youngest grandchild was born there. So don't tell me there isn't room in Grayson for a hospital. I know that people who want to drink will find a way, but even they would have to admit that they along with everyone else would benefit from a hospital. There are many places where it could be built. Instead of seeing our tax dollars go for something destructive, let's put them to good use. By destructive, think of all of the downsides to having easy access to alcohol. More impaired drivers, more sickness, more crime, more abuse and neglect of families.
Instead of preying on people's weaknesses, let's make Carter County strong with worthwhile jobs and healthcare. This is one person's opinion, but I hope and pray that I am not the only one. If anyone knows how to get this put on a ballot and let us the people vote, please do it. Remember what the Bible says:
James 4:15: For that ye ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that. But now ye rejoice in your boastings: all such rejoicing is evil. Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.

Alcohol sales would hurt Olive Hill
I am 64 years old and I have lived in the city limits of Olive Hill my entire life. I have seen Olive Hill when it was prosperous and I have seen it when it was not so prosperous.
Against liquor sales in Olive Hill
Along the roadways of our little town, we see signs urging us to vote YES for legal liquor sales in Olive Hill. Sadly, we see no signs urging us to vote NO!
In appreciation of Pastor Barrell
Some members of the Lower Grassy Church of Christ, in my opinion, should hang their heads in shame. On February 23, 2014 a wonderful man of God and their Pastor Larry Barrell was dismissed from preaching.
