Coal Grove should remain a moral community

Keep Coal Grove dry!

I am a proud resident of Coal Grove. I am proud because our little community prides itself on a good moral background and hometown beliefs.

Not trying to be like everyone else, just being Coal Grove. It is a great place to raise a family.

Most everyone here has families that grew up together. We look out for each other and we care about each other.

Our little community would not be improved by drinking in the restaurants or selling alcohol. We have enough people drinking and driving in our neighborhoods and that would increase with people coming here to buy their alcohol.

I don’t see where selling alcohol has improved Ironton, Ashland or Huntington for that matter. There are just as many houses for sale and businesses shutting down. There are no more jobs opening and nothing for the kids to do.

If you want to improve the community, open a place for the kids in our neighborhood. Give them something to make them proud of where they live, not something else to pull them down.

After all, they are the future of our community. I would hate to think that we put dollar signs ahead of our children, our families and our morals.

Lord help us if that is the case.

Coal Grove doesn’t need to be put in the gutter!
