In my humble opinion, the person who lived in Johnson City should have been ineligible. They should have been required to live in Elizabethton. Also, if any of the applicants had ever had a DUI they should have been disqualifed. They already knew who would get the licenses. For Curt Alexander to have anything to do with this is ridiculous. He got caught with his "pants down." Carter County is a laughing stock, always will be!

everyone is complaining about this situation that was created by crooked politics who would have thought that this liquor agenda would habe been any different! however the applicants were supposed to be local and have some retail expierience so to my knowledge mr hyder was the only qualified im aware of but he didnt fit the crook card apparently...

We Americans tend to have short memories; the crooked politicians bank on that. When it's time for the next election, remember the crooks and vote them out of office.

It is time that the influence of old time, under educated lay people to lose control of local policies and politics, you have a choice to drink or not, most adults choose wisely. Taxes are very well needed and the state and community need to progress. I find that the wine issue is a thing of the past, Kroger stores are a national chain and most states have had wine and beer available to the public? Tenn. has a strong political group of package stores who want to control prices and accessibility while saying it will hurt business? what happened to competition? as for the permits ,dig further and see who they are related to, ie; politicians, judges, old money families? or who owns the real estate that they wish to open their stores in? follow the money for the real answers. lotteries can be rigged?

Well said. One of the "winners" is related to an extremely crooked person. He has passed on now, but definately not forgotten, and disliked by many. He left many, and I mean many by many different "women", offspring behind who are no better, some worse, than he was and one of those is married to chappel. So you speculate on your own conclusion!

Saw where local dentist Bill Armstrong is going to open one of the first liquor stores in Eliz on Hwy 19E in the little strip center that contains State Farm. That center has enough traffic issues already, which will be magnified by the liquor traffic.
Wonder what his parents think about their son selling the evil liquor? Is he phasing out his dental practice to peddle spirits in the bible belt?
You my friend are a dumb ass. Bill is strictly a business man seeking an opportunity to make money. You obviously don't know him or his parents that good.
Thank you.

From what I hear Dr. Armstrong wanted the liquor store for his son to operate. It was in the the paper a few days ago where William Armstrong, Huron Drive, was arrested for DUI! IF this is the son, he should get out of that business. I can't believe Catherine thinks it is o.k. to be associated with such. I don't see much traffic, when I drive by, at any of the 3 stores. Most of those in Elizabethton, who partake, will continue to go to Johnson City where there is less chance of running into their church friends!

First off, were I his parent, I would not have set him up as manager of a LIQUOR STORE! Liquor devastates lives, and when a store owner sees what it is doing to his own family, he should have regrets. In my opinion, the license for the store should be pulled! If a liquor store manager is out there driving drunk, and risking other peoples lives, his punishment SHOULD be severe. God WILL not let these people prosper. Live by the sword, die by the sword!
