Seventy percent of you who responded to our most recent online poll say you have not bought alcohol in Barbourville. So apparently, many people voted to go wet either don’t actually drink, or haven’t bought it here yet. I think this shows we are an accepting community. We are willing to let others have something important to them, even if it is not something we would do ourselves.

Our acceptance and tolerance also showed during another event this week, the protest in town over the death of Jessie L. Mills. 

Just like in numerous big cities, the death of a young man at the hands of law enforcement officers has grabbed the headlines here. Fortunately, in this incident, race was not an issue.
