Letter to the Editor

Certain resaurants come with growth, alcohol

My husband and I moved here from Connecticut last year and neither one of us drink; but we are the exception in most states.

Since Barren County was named the No. 1 place to live in rural America, and obviously you would like to build on that, I am sorry to say you will have to have restaurants move in that serve liquor/wine and beer.

If you want to attract retiring people to this area, and they mostly come from the north, they will want to go to nice restaurants, where they can have a drink with their dinner.

If you can attract retired couples, it will create a lot of jobs for people in this area who need them. Seniors need a lot more services.

Hendersonville, N.C., used to be smaller than Glasgow, now it has attracted thousands of seniors who all had to have housing, places to shop, restaurants, etc. My friend who lived there made $12 an hour just driving seniors to appointments, i.e. doctors, hairdressers, groceries, etc.

I am sorry that our world has turned out this way, but unless you allow restaurants to serve alcohol you will not grow or be able to give more jobs to people who need them. Because not only will you be helping Barren County, but also surrounding areas.
