The liquor issue is not just a moral and economic issue, although it is both. This is a family
and safety issue.
If approved it will negatively impact the families of your county or town. The following facts will help us see
some of these issues more clearly and hopefully cause us to think about someone other than ourselves when faced
with a decision on expanding liquor sales.
In a 1998-99 study
Wet counties had 121% more murder, 326% more robberies, 142% more negligent manslaughter, 90%
more weapons violations, 426% more disorderly, and 106% more drunkenness.
Drunk driving arrests, adult alcohol and drug arrests, and juvenile arrest for drug violations were all over 30%
higher in wet counties.
Population growth from 1990-2000 in dry counties was almost three times that of wet counties (2000 census data).
Law enforcement personnel needs in wet counties averaged 1 per 318 citizens as opposed to 1 per 501 citizens in
a dry county.
Families will not move to your area because you have good restaurants, or because you have
liquor by the drink, they will come because it is a good, safe place to raise and educate their families.
So you see there is an economic issue here that will not be very positive for your area.

Calendar Advertising Magnet Info
The Gregorian calendar is the most widely used calendar in the world today. It was first proposed by the Calabrian doctor Aloysius Lilius, and decreed by Pope Gregory XIII, after whom it was named, on 24 February 1582 by papal bull Inter. It is a reform of the Julian calendar.
Years in the reformed calendar continue the numbering system of the Julian calendar, which are numbered from the traditional Incarnation year of Jesus, which has been labeled the "anno Domini" (AD) era, and is sometimes labeled the "common era" (CE), otherwise known as the "Christian Era". Keep in touch with a magnet.
The changes made by Gregory corrected the drift in the civil calendar which arose because the mean Julian calendar year (exactly 365 1/4 days) was slightly too long, causing the vernal equinox, and consequently the date on which Easter was being celebrated, to drift slowly forward in relation to the civil calendar and the seasons.

Weekly Bible Verses
Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:
But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.
But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
