Dear Editor: Many thanks to Newton County Commission Chair Kathy Morgan, and Commissioners Nancy Schultz and Tim Flemming for supporting the "liquor by the drink" referendum for the county. These leaders showed true vision and leadership for our county. Too many of our tax dollars are going across the county line to restaurants that we can’t attract to our county because of our archaic laws.
The rest of the commissioners should take a close look at their own motives for voting against letting Newton County residents decide for themselves whether to allow "liquor by the drink" sales.
It’s 2010, here and everywhere. If we don’t catch up with the world around us, it will leave us behind.
