Would that be offensive to you?

No, not all. I welcome the flag's restoration. Just noting how quickly the project is moving along, seemingly with no advance notice. July 4 would be a great debut.

It's strange. I remember the flag when it was lit. I have specific memories of driving downtown and seeing it. But I never noticed that it was not lit until I read the article. I think it will be a welcome addition back to downtown.

Greeneville: An American Town, the Fourth of July celebration brought to you (sponsored) by Landair. America the Beautiful, my favorite song. No, I will not wager against the date of the miracle restoration you name even though I am a betting man.

I heard it was going to be changed to a Mexican flag. It is true?

I would rather see renovations to the bulidings he owns downtown than the flag.

Put the people at Walters State in charge of the sign and their hired "expert historians" will conclude that the sign and building have no importance and that Greeneville will grow if the sign and bank building are removed to make a park and flower bed.

I agree! The whole downtown looks like crap! Even the General Morgan is starting to go down.

No, it will be a rainbow flag, and gay marriages will be performed at the Courthouse under the waving flag. Yippeee!!!

Another topic ending up as a way to bash mexicans and gays. No matter what the subject, the ignorant in Gville always change the subject to include gay and mexican hating. What are you so afraid of????

But remember that Mr NiceWLandair hissef is behind the Educational Corridor Development Koncept. Walters State (State of the Art Demolition) only does his bidding. Re the bank bldg, which is/was the NiceW proposed entrepreneur center, entrepreneurs are surely bound to move in any day now. But owners/landlords can be choosers, and teardowns are the rage, so he may tear it down before the flag waving entrepreneurs relocate to his choice Main Street location. Whatever brings money to Main Street. Don't ask how it brings money to Main Street, just make like a banker and say Whatever brings money to Main Street.
