This rumor started about 6 months ago and it is, off and on, but still going... can anyone say for sure. Or does anyone know?

No smart comments... be serious and give a straight answer.

There has been "nothing" said in any of the stories I have read about it going in the HCMC/Bethel project.

This is the rumor that needs to be corrected.

Why would they allow a fast food outlet to be put in this building? Where would the drive-through be and it make no sense at all to put it in this building, as it would take up a lot of floor space for Bethel.

There has been nothing said to this idea... no signs on the street or ads or city approval for a Chick-Fli-A.

I would be the first to say it would be nice to have a Chick-FLI-A, but not in this building... maybe at the old root beer/sonic location next door, but that too has not been announced.

Is there going to be some type of walkway going over the street connecting the two buildings?
And I don't see why not on a Chick-fil-a in the building, I've seen lots of professional buildings with restaurants in it.
What ever happened to Applebys? And the bank that was suppose to built on the corner across from Pockets?

The rumor is like every other rumor that gets start with a little hint of the truth and just explodes. The fact is there will not be a chick fil a in the hcmc/bethel location. BUT here's the hit of truth.. There will be a chick fil a in the new Bethel Student Center/ cafeteria. I know that for a fact. As far as the walkway over 79 thats coming too as long as the state approves it. ;)

Could just save the taxpayer money and make the fat people dodge the traffic trying to cross over because there's suppose to a red/green light there now. People have a heck of a time now trying to cross over. Oh well, just give it time. Henry county is only twenty years behind everyone else.

So your saying that franchises will be opening up there? Hear that poor people? Get together and pull your money up for a franchise investment. The wealthy folks here don't care about you.

A traffic signal is coming to the Joy St./Tyson Ave./Hospital Cr.... construction will probably start mid summer.

The walk bridge over Tyson Ave. is to have a bid opening mid February. See no reason why state won't approve it, but will probably have to have a support column in middle of Tyson Ave., as this is a long span... but suppose it's possible without.

The bank will probably start construction on the old Dairy Queen site as soon as weather warms.

Applebee's is still planned to open in 2012. I would think construction will start early spring... I have seen nothing to say it's not.

And the Mexican restaurant on the site of the old movie location will also probably start when weather warms.

Let's see who is right!!!

Reckon nobody will run into the support culumn? How many times have people ran over the railroad crossings here in town?

I agree with this poster. Have not heard anything of the kind. If they do put a Chick-Fil-A there you won't find me in it. Was told they will be doing autopsies downstairs.

No thank you!

I could agree with your answer more... since this will be a nursing school. Don't know how these rumors get atarted. The walkway across Tyson Ave. will allow anyone there to cross over to have lunch at the hospital.

Yes, this will be a teaching hospital as we were told. And a Paris doctor told us they will send corpses there when autopsies are needed.

Again, not my idea of a place to dine.

Wrong atmosphere.

Ehh!!!

I would hope not. It wouldn't be very appetizing. But for me, I would wonder when I was eating chicken if someone was getting unzipped downstairs below me.

Uhh...no....:)

I wrote to Ckick-Fli-A and they said, there are "NO" plans for a restaurant in Paris. They didn't say never, but it won't be anytime soon. Of course they might not be telling me the whole story, but I doubt they have any reason not to, so I believe them.

This should end this discussion on Chick-Fli-A.

However, I will continue to watch the construction of the HCMC/Bethel project. This will be good for Paris and I think it will open up other possibilities for Bethel... time will tell.

Thanks for taking the time to dig into this. Sometimes I guess it's best not to second-guess something and go straight to the top.

It's my understanding they will join Applebee's at the new waterpark on 79N. There will be a photo in the PI soon of all the local mayors and others with a reason for a PR snapshot which will be followed by an editorial by Dan Jackson making fun of the whole deal. SkyKits will sponsor the ribbon cutting in celebration of the monies they received to come to Paris and furnish a dozen jobs and our sheriff will call a press conference to reaffirm everyone that he still has money to spend on public relations, even when budgets are tight and the jail is in need of more staffing.

I line my bird cage with the P.I. everytime Dan Jackson spews forth his warped views of the world.
