Sorry means never having to say you need a lobotomy doctor, because after that remark Cretin56 may take your head off. Run and hide, stick your head in the sand and scream uncle as Cretin grabs your beverage out of your hand while you are sunning on the beach and shoves jellyfish up your Speedo to replace what she may have mistaken for sand dollars (shrugs and grins).

I believe the following are 4 main reasons that people refuse to move to Greeneville, feel free to add others:
The horrific traffic jams on the antiquated bypass; A lack of any real good restaurants(no real good steakhouses but 3 McDonald's and 2 Hardee's?); The downtown ghost town that rolls up the sidewalks promptly at 5 pm; and finally the cops that fry everybody trying to flee the mayhem for greener pastures (45 mph on a large expanse of open 4 lane headed out of town?).
Reason number 5!

The town is ran by a bunch of Good Old Boys who block anything that might change "their" town

If you pay enough people we do almost anything and with the Silicone valley pay comes the tax base and modern amenities these modern peoples need even the poor are given some measure of the bounty at least the basics . Or we can have a few rich people running the palace as they see fit -fit for them that is we providing the low wage servicing them jobs . . lol

You make it sound like the people of greeneville are living in a giant bubble, where only the people who live here would patronize any downtown establishments geared toward the trendy, hip crowd of today. I submit that not only are there already young, hip and intelligent young professionals living here who would be overjoyed to have a local downtown trendy establishment to patronize(remember Tusculum College?), an establishment such as this would actually draw in customers from (gasp!) other nearby towns as well, which could actually serve as a catalyst to spur others to open similar establishments.
If you think my comparison of Greeneville to Asheville was a bit of a stretch, then I'll take it down several notches and use the town of Hot Springs as an example. In the last few years the town has grown exponentially with several hip and trendy establishments springing up geared toward the younger crowd, yet appealing to all ages, many as tourist passing through and stopping in or traveling from other towns to mingle with friends. Needless to say, their sidewalks stay down way after 5pm. Hot Springs may have the mineral spas, but Greeneville has many draws and interesting things to see and do as well.
You might think I "have it in" for Greeneville, but you're mistaken - it's actually quite the opposite. I love the history surrounding the town and many of the people who live here. I'm just very frustrated at the obvious neglect and stranglehold that's been inflicted upon the town for so long. Greeneville, and the good people who live here, deserve better...much better.
I see many people here with their heads in the sand or plugging their ears and saying "Greeneville is awesome, don't you dare say otherwise!", making excuse after excuse as to why it is okay to keep the same old status quo, but you let a Texas Roadhouse or an Outback Steakhouse, or even a Golden Corrall move in, and sit back and watch as their parking lots stay consistantly full of grateful Greenevillians who are glad they didn't have to drive Grandma or the kids all the way to Johnson City to have a great meal.
Absolutely!! Amen!! This county is geared more toward a retirement community, Not for young growing families. When the "retirees" pass on what's left? Drugs? Drinking the back roads? It's really time for some fresher ideas.

1. The horrific traffic jams in Greeneville are caused by stupid drivers who truly do not know the rules of the road, I mean have you ever seen these folks try to navigate a four way stop? Pitiful. Some of them are having a conversation with the driver in the car next to them and thus failing to drive. The rest are on their phones talking and texting.
2. Fatz is the only restaurant in town that offers ambiance and service.(And it is not my favorite.) Fast food and steak houses where you carry a tray don't count. There are few spots for descent food, but the ambiance is lacking.
3. There is no parking in downtown and almost all the properties there are held by greedy second, third or fourth generation families who want too much rent money for their leaking, run down and not up to any kind of code storefronts. Greeneville's downtown is sad compared to any of the surrounding small towns. If you are not seeking salvation or pursuing a law suit, you don't need to bother going down there.
4. The cops operate only on the edge of town, lest they have to give someone they know a ticket. Look out if you are a foreigner...i.e. don't have a Greene County tag. As for patrolling neighborhoods where everybody is doing 55 in a 30, they are useless. Greeneville is no different than other small TN towns in respect to this kind of gouge the out-of-towners. My extended family lives in southeast TN and it works the same way.

As I said I am neither Dem or Rep but the Democrats,(especially the ones who post on here) should rename themselves the Victimcrats because they are always crying about what the rich have and how they are wronged by society. Complaining and crying about what you don't have is not going to help your plight. How about getting out and better yourself and stop playing the victim. Everyone's tired of hearing that same old sad Mantra.
if you don't want to hear the truth then stay out of the discussion. Most of the people I know with money here inherited it from their mommies and daddies. They didn't earn it . They keep it by siphoning off the backs of the rest of the citizens and by keeping out competition.

You just read the truth, responded to it, and could not handle it. Sounds to me as if you need to go out and better yourself. Then perhaps you would know what it was like actually like to earn your wage and maybe one day be one of those evil rich that pays most all the taxes and keeps the other 50% on the dole up. Then you would be one of the ones on the other side saying to yourself,'hey you know it really sucks working my ass off, paying 40% of my income to pay for all the government handouts.

They failed badly at all things they have tried but we need the bypass to pass old business so we get new ones or they fade away .

If you will vote the HAWK back in he will make Greeneville prosper once again!

In fact people from all over will travel to Greeneville, home of the HAWK!

We might want to get a statue built of the HAWK downtown, where tourists can have their picture taken under his wise and warm gaze!

Don't throw your vote away, we all know the HAWK is going to win!

Oh well, it will give us an excuse to have a big old block party when they leave as well as a decrease in the percentages of unemployed,drugs and other assorted crimes I am sure.
