She has done this before, to other businesses and people in the county. This isn't a 'new' thing that just happened with Betty. She has written bad checks before.

I wonder what the larger picture is here. How long has this business been in Boone? Then a similar "chain" business moves in to Boone and probably hurt her business. Maybe, she had hard decisions to make and made the wrong ones. These are hard times for small businesses. Larger chains can absorb loss better than small stores. If a western clothing chain, national steak house chain, Home Depot, a seafood restaurant chain, moved into Boone, I wonder if I would know anyone or myself, be impacted by the shift in business. I do not excuse the checks at all, but what is the old adage desperate times, desperate measures.
She must have been desperate for decades...this type of abuse is not new for her...even when Mtn House was located where Walgreens is now...she shafted people/contractors/employees/v endors...
Her business(es) could have been larger had she not pissed away her goodwill on poor financial decisions like this.

Matthew 7:1 Judge not, that ye be not judged.
Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
Matthew 12:34 O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. 12:35 A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things. 12:36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. 12:37 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.
1 John 4:20 If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?
Jesus loves me even if you don't...and stating fact is not judgment...theft is theft...where is your Old Testament "Eye for an eye"?...steal from me, I steal from you...Quoting from an annotated King James Bible does not make you holier than anyone, Hoss

This time Betty cheated a big company instead of small local businesses, a big company that doesn't give a shiz about her dead son. She's been running on that sympathy vote for years. Had she cheated all those fools over at the Democrat squawking out of $$$$, the tune would be different.
I can not believe you just brought her son that passed away in this..you should be ashamed of yourself. this could happen to you also..

"Jesus loves me even if you don't..."
2 Corinthians 2:4 For out of much affliction and anguish of heart I wrote unto you with many tears; not that ye should be grieved, but that ye might know the love which I have more abundantly unto you.

"And stating a fact is not judgement..."
Romans 14:10 But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.

"where is your old testament eye for a eye..."
Matthew 5:38 Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: 5:39 But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also. Matthew 5:43 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.Matthew 5:44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

"quoting from a king James bible does not make you any holier than me"
2 Timothy 4:3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 4:4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

And yes I do love you as does Jesus Christ as well just trying to help
Ephesians 4:32 And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.

I think all of ya'll who want to talk trash about Betty need to quit hiding behind some trashy gossip site using a false name and go right on down to mountain house and tell her to her face. Under the constitution of the United States of America everyone has the right to face their accussers, and that is up to the Watauga County court system, not you nameless cowards who have nothing better to do than gossip and type trash.So clean out your own backyard first then go right down to the Mountain House and tell her what you think to her face. It's a sad world when people with such strong opinions about something have to hide behind a chessy gossip site and fake name
