I just have one question. Is there a 30 and under we can make the “eternally-young” Tim McMurtrey play in?

Voters urged to take responsibility for future

Do you really want alcohol sales in Glasgow? You may think alcohol sold by the drink in a few restaurants is not so bad. What do you think about liquor stores and bars in Glasgow? Alcohol sales by the drink are likely the first step toward a wet vote in Glasgow in later years.

Although only those who vote in city precincts will see this issue on the ballot, a vote to go “moist” will not only affect Glasgow, but also Barren County and the surrounding counties. It is important for you to vote. A heavy voter turnout will likely defeat the issue. Those who are for alcohol sales will definitely be at the polls on Nov. 6.

Barren County voters should encourage their friends and relatives who live in the city to vote on the issue. Offer to take the older people in your family, church and neighborhood to the polls to vote. If you choose not to vote, you are helping to bring alcohol sales to Glasgow.

The proponents say we need alcohol sales, but Barren County is the No. 1 place to live in rural America without alcohol sales. In fact, alcohol sales might have changed the community in such a way that we would not have earned that distinction.

If you have not voted recently or you have moved since you registered to vote, you must call the Barren County Clerk’s office at 651-3783. The deadline for registering to vote in the November election is Oct. 8.

Voting for what you believe in is a responsibility and a right. Take responsibility for the future of Glasgow.
