I appreciate the concerns of the Iola resident who wrote in opposition to alcohol being available to people attending events at The Bowlus. However, I’ve always been a supporter of individual liberties.
I probably identify more as a Libertarian than any other political party, and I’m very sensitive about imposing my values on others. My position is if you’re opposed to prayer in school, don’t pray in school, but don’t prevent others from doing so. If you’re opposed to drinking at the Bowlus, I support you. Don’t drink at the Bowlus, but don’t keep others who drink responsibly from enjoying an adult beverage at a performance.
