Bent V. Don: Alcohol In Public Places

Bent: While I am sure there are a few incidents, I cannot recall reading about any problems with people and alcohol at Post Falls City Parks … Alcohol is leagl in Post Falls Parks and Beaches… Didn't see any problems at the fair this weekend either… I see more trouble in the police bar report on Sherman Avenue, where bars are allowed to sell the evil drug to people.

Don Sausser: I have nothing against anyone enjoying beer but the effects of alcohol are well demonstrated. ... I don't “buzz” and find life really good without it. Not much buzz in a diet pepsi but it taste good on a hot day. I'm glad that it works in Post Falls Park. But while I was on the NIC Board we allowed alcohol on the NIC beach. It caused so many problems that we reversed the policy after one season.

Question: Would you like to see alcohol allowed in city parks and more public events like the North Idaho Fair?
