What industry wants to locate somewhere where people are so stuck I'm their ways and rabidly against education and making the place like the rest of the modern world. You idiots are your own worst enemies and continue to perpetuate the cycle of poverty around by refusing to change & grow better. So guess what? Any industry goes somewhere where the workforce is better educated. There Ain't that many jobs left for unskilled people and the ones that are available you wouldn't take anyway, because in a prideful redneck's mind, you think you're netter than that - too bad the employer dosent feel the same way- and they call the shots.
Theres no industry because our so called leaders keep on pushing for more tourism and that is really becoming the death of Fannin County as we know it. Only a very few select individuals benefit from Tourism. Shining Floridiots shoes is only padding the pockets of very few.

FUNNY did you read the paper last week, it said your taxes would have gone up if it was not for beer tax,
think, if you sold liquor that would be less tax
people are not back woods, they just want to keep the moonshine to their selves, can you blame them. that stuff is good.
let me tell you, I am from Florida
but I love Blue ridge and my house there
Yeah lets turn Blue Ridge into a place just like Floriduh. You say you have a second "home" in Blue Ridge well thats half the reason a lot of folks that actually live and work in Blue Ridge full time can barely afford a first home. Just keep you and your sunburnt partner down in Florida.

"RUN" Levis and Shaw out? What rock have you been under the past few years? Companies like these two have been closing plants all over The United States and offshoring their manufacturing. What this means is that workers better start learning how to upgrade their skills so that they can do some more skilled work, or they will continue to lose their jobs to Bangledesh where someone will work for $2.00 per hour. The world's s lot smaller place than it was 20 years ago. The sooner the American worker learns this lesson and learns how to adapt and upgrade their education and skills, the better off they will be.

From todays paper in Atlanta

Notice the key phrase "is seeking HIGHLY SKILLED maintenance technicians"

Toyo Tire hiring 200 workers
10:12 am September 9, 2010, by Henry Unger

Toyo Tire said Thursday it plans to hire another 200 workers for its plant in White, Georgia, which is in Bartow County.

The labor expansion is in response to increased production and ongoing investments at the plant, the company said in a news release.

Toyo is seeking highly skilled maintenance technicians, as well as production workers for the plant, which was named Georgia Manufacturer of the Year in 2009.

The company said qualified candidates should visit the Cartersville Department of Labor for more information. Itís located at 19 Felton Place, Cartersville, 30120.

Oh and By the Way - Cartersville has liquor stores and has progressed into the real world - and look where the manufacturers are putting their investment dollars

Yes, there are some aggravating people who move here from Florida, but there are also some very nice people who move here, too. And, let's don't forget, we have a huge number of local a$$wipe people, too. Those are the ones you should have a problem with because they are the ones who make the decisions around here.

I am so sick of hearing remarks like Floriduh & Asslantans. Where do you go shopping? Atlanta. Where do you vacation? Florida. Just shows how really ignorant you are. Blue Ridge wouldn't be half of what it is now without the out-of-towners moving here and the vacationers. And yes, I do think Blue Ridge needs to get with the times and start selling liquor. Why not, we can get it in Ellijay anyway. Why give the business to Ellijay, lets bring some of the revenue to Blue Ridge.

I couldn't agree more and just can't understand the mentality of city pukes that move to Blue Ridge from Floriduh and Asslanta and then want to change it into what they left. The move-ins that move to Fannin County and route for Georgias teams and embrace the area and culture that they moved to are just fine. But most move-ins from Floriduhh and Asslanta suck. They are parasites and need to be exterminated.
Not everyone that lives here is from Florida or Atlanta, you ignorant, near-sighted inbred moron. The world is a big place and I welcome anyone and everyone that comes here, with open arms!

I understand that change is needed in order for industry and jobs to come into the area. Most people that live here and work blue collar jobs drive at least an hour to get there. We need good paying jobs for the people of the area. How ever for some half back flordian to come to my town and start telling me how I f*ck my brother and am a hillbilly I say to you You are D*mn right I am a hillbilly and you people live here in your nice big log cabin homes that some dumb*ss hillbilly sawd out $20 grand worth or sawmill lumber and put a little hillbilly touch to it and you people came up here and paid $300 gs for it. If Flordia or Michigan were so great how come you left??? Don't try and change this town it is small and pain sometimes but just suck it up and drive to Elijay and buy enough liquor to last the month like all the rest of us do. Do tell us how stupid we are if you don't like it leave

Then move to Ellijay or better yet Canton. I don't go shopping in Asslanta and sure as shit wouldn't step foot in Floriduh. It seem once you breath that Floriduh air for too long you become A arrogant pushy jackoff. I have no problem with out of towners moving to Blue Ridge and embracing Georgia. The working class folks are cool then ones that don't come from via Floriduh. The half of what Blue Ridge is becoming would be better off with the vacationers though. If you want city life just move assclown.

Fannin County has survived many,many years without liquor. It is only going to add more problems than we already have. Let's keep that small hometown feel.

Well Good news is its getting voted on in Nov. and like another poster said the beer and wine tax was around 180,000+ and that was from the first year imagine what it will be next year even without liquor..maybe double since almost every resturant in Blue Ridge now has beer and wine..Add liquor to that OMG wow Blue ridge now is finally making some money to maybe fix there roads,
Schools, lower property taxes, and even maybe generate 100s of jobs with the new commerce that would soon follow. Get over the whole We hate everyone but FANNIN COUNTY 50yr Residents. Fact is most of them are dying off and eventually there will be a whole new era. The same people who are against these type of things are the same ones who have there grandkids cause there kids are on meth or drunks. The reason for alot of Fannins Probs. are there is absolutly nothing in this County for anyone to do, no work, and probably higher unemployment rate per capita than Atlanta..Get Over yourselfs and think long term.. Liquor is not going to change Fannin into Atlanta nor is going to make things better but it will be a start for things to come...

yes...we need more alcoholics, more DUI accidents, more children being raised by grandparents, more opportunities for police interventions, more people in emergency rooms, more people spending money on drinks instead of caring for their families, more people in the local jail, more young people to choose sin instead of doing right. Those are all things that we need more and more of. Let's just go right out and get that.

I, too, think that liquor should be allowed in our county. If it is legal anywhere in America, it should be legal EVERYWHERE in America. I am tired of our county politicians withholding rights from us that are available to most Americans. Why should we be treated differently?
And, as far as people moving here from other places, I can fully understand why. I have lived here all my life and I think it is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. Of course people want to move here!
Liquor isn't a right. You can't take it to certain beaches, sporting events, concerts, etc. There are many towns that have ordinances regarding liquor laws and there should be laws governing the sale of booze. Booze isn't legal in every town in the USA. Get a clue and go to Ellijay for your booze.
