Is Gilmer ever going to sell beer? I mean we all drive to Gladewater, Big Sandy, or Pittsburg. Why not keep the money here?

True Texan: They use to sell beer in Gimer & whiskey & wine. It was BOOT LEGGED. The Court system knew ALL about it. You got hwy 271-155-300 where the DPS love to stop you (if you are working) checking for booze. DWI, DUI, ETC., they would loose too much money if you could walk around the corner and buy a six pack. You can sell all the DRUGS you want too, you will be out the next day. Get caught with beer etc., in the car (open container) you will need one of their JACK LEG LAWYERS. That is how they keep the money in Gilmer. Did that answer your question?

I'm sorry Willie but I've read a lot of your responses and I just think your a paranoid person. DPS aren't that bad on any of those roads. White Oak is worse by far! Its 2013 and I think GPD has come a long way since the 90's. Not everything is a conspiracy! There are drugs and murders in Gilmer as any other town. Are you even from Texas? Have you ever lived in Gilmer? Who are you really?

Drugs are anywhere you go Uncle Harv. It's just a matter of getting them and the people who do them off the streets! Alcohol doesn't make people bad. Bad people drink. And do a lot of other things.

Gilmer has went wet! Thank God. Glad all this BS is over and now we don't have to drive far to get a cold one.
