County folk locked out of alcohol vote

Call me crazy, but I thought all Taylor Countians were a part of Campbellsville? I live in the county but when asked where I live I say "Campbellsville." I've lived in Campbellsville all my life. I never did understand why just the "city" people voted for mayor. But I'm glad Brenda Allen is our mayor.

I never said anything. I let it go. But with this issue about alcohol being served in our restaurants and dining with a meal, I will not sit by and say nothing.

I know, according to the ballot, only the people in the city can vote for this issue. Call me crazy again, but the way I see it, the big "city wheels" are the ones who want this to get voted in. The people in the county have no say. Let me see, don't we "countians" come to Campbellsville to eat? Absolutely.

Then we should have some say on this issue as well. Or maybe we "countians" should stop coming to Campbellsville altogether and go to another county?

The Bible says in Proverbs 14:12, "There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death." Also in Ephesians 5:6-7, it says, "Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience. Be not ye therefore partakers with them."

We each have to search our hearts and see where we stand with God and what is right. As for me, I stand on "the solid rock." That's Christ. I hope and pray Campbellsville-Taylor County stays dry.
