Major Alcohol Expansion Push Reported

We’ve just received the following report from Kentucky Ethics League Director Don Cole about alcohol sales expansion efforts:

THERE IS A MAJOR PUSH IN THE SOUTHEN SECTOR OF I-75 to expand alcohol sales. The following cities and/or their counties are having petitions circulated, getting signatures, to call for the election. They are Barbourville, Williamsburg, Pineville, and Corbin. From my understanding the same person is pushing in all of these places.

I cannot overemphasize the need for local people to keep up with their county magistrates, city councils and events in their counties and cities. The expense on counties to pay for these elections is a tremendous cost and the counties are already hurting for lack of funds for normal transactions.

Alcohol will not bring a windfall of resources. In Pikeville, voters were promised that if they voted alcohol in there, would be a hotel built. Here it is three or four years later and guess what. No hotel is built. Promises of riches and economic development by the alcohol industry do not happen.

During the season we are remembering the Birth of Jesus and the good news of the gospel there are others seeking to destroy the fabric of many communities. THE FORCES OF EVIL ARE STILL ALIVE AND ACTIVE EVEN IN THIS JOYOUS SEASON.“Be sober, be vigilant; your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:” (I Peter 5:8 KJV)
