Drinking Causes 1 in 10 Deaths of Working-Age Adults
A stunning one in 10 deaths in working-age adults may be due to excessive alcohol consumption, a new government study shows.
That adds up to 88,000 deaths per year from 2006 to 2010, according to the report released Tuesday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Put another way, that means that binge drinking and heavy regular drinking cut 30 years off the lives of those who died.

"It has grown tremendously," said. "But it's always been here. We can't say it hasn't been here because it's been here but it has increased since Whiteclay has been shut down."...

I suppose most people including myself was hoping that Christian Sharia law would have a big effect. Perhaps it has had an effect but still not a complete shutdown of illicit alcohol, just as it didn't happened in the prohibition era?

Residents feel that with the liquor stores closed, it will bring positivity back into their area. They can freely walk the streets without the risk of drunk drivers.

Now if you read the article, [URL=http://tinyurl.com/y72moeh9]]]Nebraska May Stanch One Townâs Flow of Beer to Its Vulnerable Neighbors[/URL] lbug in my last post? you would have known there is a religious guy there trying to raise money to buy the booze outlets. I'm not sure if trying to buy up the source is going to work, but I believe he should have the qualifications for spreading the Gospel. However many of these women for on reason or another won't accept it, so it's okay for them to have abortions
FactCheck wrote: ACOG, [ American College of Obstetricians & Gynecologists] Oct. 19: [2012?] Contrary to the inaccurate statements made yesterday by Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL), abortions are necessary in a number of circumstances to save the life of a woman or to preserve her health. Unfortunately, pregnancy is not a risk-free life event, particularly for many women with chronic medical conditions. Despite all of our medical advances, more than 600 women die each year from pregnancy and childbirth-related reasons right here in the US. In fact, many more women would die each year if they did not have access to abortion to protect their health or to save their lives.

How does the bible instruct sinners to 'handle sin'? The command is to repent. What is the ONLY thing that can change a heart and turn a sinner from sin, freeing them of its bondage? Surely you know Jim L, even if you haven't been freed yourself

Alcohol abuse, as it is called in the Ny Times article or drunkenness and that is a sin, so why do I or any article has to point that out?
Webster 1913 Dictionary wrote: ALCOHOLISM:
Alcoholism /AlÂ´coÂˇholÂˇism/ (?), n. [Cf. F. alcoolisme.] (Med.) A diseased condition of the system, brought about by the continued use of alcoholic liquors.

Again around the end of August we will find out if these stores in Whiteclay are permanently closed.
take note of this, 1Co 6:9Â Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,Â 1Co 6:10Â Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.Â
I notice you still didn't answer my question, typical.
Now, take note of this, the bible calls it drunkenness and NOT alcoholism. Worldly terminology also says drunkenness is a 'disease', I am sure you don't have a problem with that either.

Now many residents of Nebraska and South Dakota are pushing for the liquor stores of Whiteclay to be shut, disgusted by the easy access to alcohol the stores provide to a people who have fought addiction for generations. The Nebraska authorities, in turn, have tightened scrutiny of the stores, which sell millions of cans of beer and malt liquor annually. Last year, for the first time, the state liquor commission ordered the storesâ six owners to reapply for their liquor licenses....
Pine Ridge, one of the nationâs largest Indian reservations, is a catalog of social ills: Unemployment exceeds 80 percent, poverty affects more than 90 percent of those living on the reservation and alcoholism is rampant. By some estimates, one quarter of children born on the reservation have fetal alcohol syndrome.

If you want to stop people like, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cecilia_Fire_Thunder "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure."
I made one mistake it is a Pine Ridge reservation and not the Rosebud. Both are located in South Dakota. It's the Pine Ridge that is next to Nebraska. Apparently the Rosebud reservation allows liquor to be sold on the reservation.
lbug, I see that the New York Times did an excellent article on alcohol abuse in Whiteclay, called, "Nebraska may staunch one town's flow of beer to it's vulnerable neighbors.'
I will put up a better link to it later. But, one can look it up on Google.
FRIDAY, JUN 27, 2014 | 25 comments Now 26! Reminds me of Prov 26:9 "As a thorn goeth up into the hand of a drunkard, so is a parable in the mouth of fools. 10 The great God that formed all things both rewardeth the fool, and rewardeth transgressors. 11 As a dog returneth to his vomit, so a fool returneth to his folly.
You mean Christians don't understand that alcoholism isn't a sin? Ypu can ask many leaders of the native Americans of the Rosebud reservation what they think of it. Apparently the better policing in the larger towns has help to stop fights. Whiteclay was a center for sin, these other towns are at least able to control the violence better that comes excessive drinking, which is a sin.
Amer. Tract Dictionay 1859 wrote: Drunkeness:
Is referred to in the Bible both in single instances and as a habit. Its folly is often illustrated, Ps 107:27 Isa 19:14 24:20 28:7,8, its guilt denounced, Isa 5:22, its ill results traced, 1Sa 25:36 1Ki 16:9 20:16, and its doom shown, 1Co 6:9,10. produced by wine, Ge 9:21 21:33 Jer 23:9 Eph 5:18, as well as by "strong drink," 1Sa 1:13-15 Isa 5:11. Hence the use of these was forbidden to the priests at the altar, Le 10:9; and all are cautioned to avoid them, Pr 20:1 23:20. To tempt others to drunkenness is a sin accursed of God, 2Sa 11:13 Hab 2:15,16. Its prevalence in a community is inseparable from the habitual use of any inebriating liquor. Hence the efforts made by the wise and good to secure abstinence from all intoxicating drinks, 1Co 8:13. See WINE.
There is a followup to the previous post, actually the Nebr. Liquor Commission closed the stores in Whiteclay. Oh, there's an appeal on that, that will be heard on August 29th.
However, sometimes you can regulate sin -- up to a point Read the article, [URL=https://www.usnews.com/news/news/articles/2017-07-28/nebraska-liquor-sales-increase-in-towns-near-reservation]]]Liquor Sales Increase in Nebraska Towns Near Reservation[/URL]. Apparently overall consumption is down in Northwest Nebraska. It's an interesting article on how to handle sin.
The very rare instances that's a Nebraska Liquor Commission removes a liquor license, they know that they can relax because the court always overturns their actions. So they can always look more without really doing anything.

KOTATV wrote: Four Nebraska stores known for selling millions of cans of beer each year near the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation have lost their liquor licenses....
State regulators reviewed the stores' licenses amid complaints that the town lacks adequate law enforcement to address frequent violence, drunken driving and other crimes. The stores have operated in Whiteclay for decades, and are expected to appeal the ruling.
Mike, I read somewhere that the Baptist Bible Belt has a real drinking problem. I will try to find the article.

Amen Jessica. The resource I found impressive because it was not biased one way or the other, but genuinely sought to find out what the whole Bible had to say about the subject. Now that REALLY impressed me! So many folks and sects come out with so-called proof texts to bolster their position, and end up being lopsided, deliberately ignoring other texts.
Peace also to you, in your environment. It will not be forever.
