Wreck on the highway

This store is going to be murder to try and get on the highway & Boyds Creek from this corner. It shouldn't take a traffic study to see this. This location will be hard to enter & exit even at light traffic times.

Feck Weigels. They bullied their way into this area. They bought that land knowing they couldn't sell beer there then spent years bitching and suing to get the law changed.

I like beer and drink beer. The point is they're stupid for not knowing the law and they're arrogant for fighting it to cover their stupidity. I hate stupid people and arrogant people. Weigels is both. I hope they fail and I will not go there.

Weigles was smart in buying knowing that someone will pull a political favor. When PILOT was granted a beer permit. Weigles sued and won first day in court, not years.

Pilot wasnt located directly across the street from a church. Also, if you know anything you know damn good and well it took Weigels years to get the law changed. Otherwise they wouldn't have waited several years to build.

Pilot actually bought a church to get the location they're at. They then found they were too close to the library to get a beer license.Pilot went to work with their big bucks and political power to get the law changed very quickly.Weigel's Should give a big kickback to Gov. Pilot.

I know that Weigles purchases real estate years before it develops. They knew before the purchase they could go to court and get a beer permit. Seymour has grown 30 percent in the last 10 years. It was time to build.

Visit the record of deeds in some of the local counties. Weigles has seleral parcels of unimproved property just waiting for growth.

What the hell does that mean to this argument? Are claiming there weren't/aren't enough places to buy beer at?!
