I wonder why this thread starter attempted to link this tragedy to Sully's?
See post #9.

I bet the teetotalers are disappointed they cannot link this tragedy to alcohol.

But now that guns have killed more people in Burnside than the alcohol, will the dry crowd try to get them banned as well?

According to WLEX TV in Lex today (4-12), the woman was seeing other men and the fellow found out so he killed her and then turned the gun on himself!

You said you didn't know if it was alcohol involved. Forget?

I'd hate to read Topix if it happened above a church.

The names were released by the coroner and as tragic as it is, neither one were from Pulaski county.

Answering your post. Prior to that I hadn't mentioned alcohol in this thread, in fact I don't think anyone had.

Now we know, alcohol wasn't involved. I was just pointing out how the dry crowd was waiting with baited breath, dare I say hoping for news that alcohol was involved with this murder.

It wasn't. Collectively, the dry crowd around the county stomped their foot and said "dang!"

Why is your family out after closing time?

Boy it sure would be nice if an "old drunk" like me could buy packaged alcohol and take it home. Then I could sit at home around closing time drinking, but instead the local laws force us out to bars driving on the same roads as your families. Tsk tsk.

See how silly the whole alcohol situation is in Pulaski county? Of course you do, but you won't admit it!

You shouldn't be "forced" to do anything. Just as the majority. Tsk tsk.

Wow, one of the dry crowd implying that someone vocally supporting the YES! vote is an unemployed drunk. Who would had guessed that?

Predicted March 18th. The rhetoric and insults spewed by the dry crowd will just get worse from here.

So far they haven't taxed any houseboat. The mayor just mentioned it.
But to answer your question: more money! Most houseboats are owned by people who don't live here. Why should Burnside residents be stuck with property tax bills yet Ohio houseboaters get by for free?
i'm not from ohio an i can dock my boat elsewhere, that isn't a problem. there are several annoyed by this. why the need for so much more money? i thought the booze was all it took? are you saying that the booze tax isn't as lucrative as once thought? sounds like it.

us tourists probably spend more $ in burnside than you think they do, should off-set property taxes on boats well enough. you guys getting greedy. pretty soon you'll be trying to annex the whole freakin' lake!

Not nearly as bad from the minority that want Somerset wet. Plenty of lies to come from the Topix groupees.
And for the 100th time bootleggers and black market alcohol will always be in all Kentucky counties, wet or dry. They will just make most of their money on Sundays, after hours and from kids. The last thing we need is another Sully's.
All evidence points to a majority that wants Somerset wet, not a minority, but you can think that if it helps you sleep at night.

Now, you claim plenty lies come from the vocal wet supporters on Topix? Name some. Link to them. Prove your allegations.

And you can cry for the 100th time about bootleggers surviving legalized package alcohol sales but that doesn't make it true. Right now bootlegging is a 24/7 business and you seem to be perfectly content with that.(Possible you're one of the ones profiting off the illegal sale of alcohol, hmmmm?)

Corbin just voted package alcohol sales, guess what, they sell on Sunday! So does Danville! Somerset probably will too if we go wet, so no bootlegger is going to benefit there.

Again, if packaged alcohol sales pass bootleggers will be out of business. They will simply be your run-of-the-mill drug dealer.

Now to your last statement, why don't we need another Sullys? They employ 50-60 people, probably have somewhere in the neighborhood of 3-4 million dollars in revenue annually. Why don't we need another one exactly?

I'm sure a lot of unemployed people in Somerset wish we could get another 5 or 6!

Then you obviously thought wrong. How could you be that unintelligent? If having taxes on alcohol is all it took, any city allowing legal alcohol sales would immediately cancel all their property taxes, right?

Last I checked, Burnside has a lot lower property tax rate than Somerset. Why do you think that is?

**********

Face it, taxing houseboats makes sense for Burnside. You don't live here. You don't vote here. You park your boat, a HOUSE, tax-free. Everyone else living in HOUSES in Burnside have to pay their fair share.

What makes you so special that you expect to get by tax-free?

As usual your questions and comments are skewed and will never be logical. Only your one sided comments which you must thrive on. I doubt if you cared about commerce in this area in your life. Only what you want.
