I have been told that The General Morgan Inn and several other motels have had cancellations for rooms due to the publicity of Overholt and his arrest. Seems people who want to move here are not so certain now that they see the actions of the governing bodies... can this be verified ? If this is true, that is a real "shot in the foot" moment for Greene County !

I hope that this is true. The only way a lesson is learned around here is if it costs the Good Old Boys some money!

Idiots...this is laughable drama at its worst. BS big time..old and lame almost to the point of sounding Puritanical. Seen a lot of turnover in the local parishes,also with new pastors names sprouting up more frequently than the election signs at the intersections. What in the world do we blame this on,hmmm? Hypocrisy in it's truest form..

Do you really think Eddie's arrest for asking a question is "laughable drama"? Or were you referring to the guy saying the General Morgan was losing business?
The General Morgan losing business. Nothing laughable about that man getting arrested for making an untimely request.Sorry for the confusion..#5555

While its true people don't want to move here I really don't believe the Gen Morgan is seeing cancellations because really, they hardly ever have any guests to start with!
Four big REAL reasons that people refuse to move to Greeneville are 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?).

Apparently Greeneville is being strangled by by those in power who refuse to allow it to evolve into the 21st Century. What a shame.

While you were complimenting us you failed to mention that we are all a bunch of uneducated, inbred hicks. Or were you planning on posting that in a later report?

Not sure who you thought I was "complimenting", and while there ARE quite a few of those kind of people in Greeneville, I believe Newport has the most, so you might want to head on over to that forum with your pointy stick.

There's a bit more in Newport but Greeneville has nothing to be proud of this week!
