Marcia M. Shuffet for in-between Wet & Dry

By Marcia M. Shuffett
Personal Commentary

I am not well-versed with what this actually means (but have been trying to find out), but if Wet/Dry means exactly like it sounds which to me is all or none, then in my unasked- for opinion, neither would be really appropriate for a town this size.

There has to be something else with some restrictions. Young people by a certain age still have to get the "forbidden" out of the way so they can move on from children to responsible adults. That is just the way of life. They should have a sneaky little (once a week) free pass to go to our "bootlegger" that has been here as long as I have and that is over 27 years and get them a six-pack.

(If an eighteen-year can possibly be drafted and go get his/her head blown off, then he/she should be able to have a brew or two or whatever amount doesn't put them into "idiot status". And with good guidance from their role models they would know not to "cross that line" into stupidity.

Crossing the line is what leads into other more harmful illegal drugs. Let's start thinking of our children. When adults way of parenting is "do as I say and not as I did or do", that attitude frankly makes me sick.
