Liquor license distribution cause for concern

CORBIN — I, like Trent Knuckles, am concerned about the distribution of the liquor licenses. There is so much talk about who is going to be selling. The part that concerns me is about buildings being renovated, bought or rented. How can they do that if they don’t know who is coming and receiving licenses? I support my leaders and law enforcement, but I wonder, like Trent, if there is some behind-doors deals. Maybe we need to bring in some government regulators or ATF to check this out.

Also, Mr. Mayor and commission members, I think you should have considered those voters of the community who opposed alcohol sales before allowing Sunday sales. Is the community’s thirst and greed this great that we have to do this? Sour grapes, you may say? But no! Only disappointment and, now, with this decision, further disappointment because you have forgotten about those who do honor God and His house of worship. Please, in your future decisions, consider all the people, not just the money.

Thank you. I will continue to pray for God to give you wisdom and knowledge as you represent all citizens.

Thank God we still have the right of speech and press.
