what's great about our town. .

Not true. If you are talking about shopping, nightlife, etc., true, Greeneville offers about nothing, but you are taking the mountains for granted. Plenty to do if you are into the outdoors.  (Aug 14, 2012 | post #179)

Agreed. Greeneville will never be what it once was. Manufacturing drove this town - the jobs have left & they are never coming back.  (Jul 24, 2012 | post #167)

This is ridiculous. I'm not a supporter of Brad Mercer, or any of the Republican candidates, but this is an absurd offensive theory. Where do you even get that he supports gay marriage or teacher unions? I can guarantee you that neither group is lobbying for Brad to win.  (Jul 24, 2012 | post #3)

Of course, on the one supposedly positive Greeneville Topix post, it ends up in childish bickering. The best part of Greeneville is clearly the mountains and natural beauty. Another great thing is the pride - I know there are a lot of people that have a hate/love relationship with G'ville (me too), but most everyone I know is proud to say they are from G'ville and will defend it and the region.  (Jul 17, 2012 | post #120)

Poor voter turnout in G'ville

I'm sure they don't care. They just care that they "won."  (Jun 5, 2012 | post #8)

Wisconsin Rules

And your username is Beatnik? What do you have against labor? Walker was funded by millions of dollars in outside interests (out of state), especially the Koch Brothers. Sad, but that is pretty much how it is these days. A relatively few group of multi-millionaires and billionaires can now purchase elections since 2010.  (Jun 5, 2012 | post #2)

It's true. That's why Greeneville will never get better, never progress. Gville's fear of outsiders + strong good ole boy network = dying town. Hate to say it because I love it, but it's true.  (Jun 5, 2012 | post #6)

David Hawk

I think it would be a really black eye on our district to re-elect him after all of this. Even notwithstanding his legal mess, he has not been very productive and is nothing more than a career long politician at this point.  (Jun 5, 2012 | post #3)

Eddie Yokley - Democrat

Great source on those facts. Especially love the raising taxes on "family owned small businesses" propaganda. Republicans will want to have you think that if you want to increase taxes on multi-millionaires , that is a tax increase on small business when it is just a pay back to their millionaire buddies that gave them all the $ to get them elected.  (May 8, 2012 | post #2)

New Grocery Store

There is no way it is going to be Target or Publix. There is no market for those stores here. Isn't the developer from Bristol, home of Food City? That seems to be the guess and sounds right to meCertainly, the jobs are welcome, but Greeneville needs GOOD JOBS. Most all of these will be close to minimum wage; hard to pay the bills on that sort of income.  (Apr 25, 2012 | post #46)

Nicest hotel in Greeneville??

General Morgan Inn is definitely the nicest and I would say the best location since it is downtown...but since there is really nothing downtown I'm not sure that is the case. The historic stuff downtown would be cool to just walk to, but you can cover all of that in a matter of hours. I don't know that it is worth $125-150 per night. Jameson Inn is probably about $40 less per night, newer & very nice and it is right off 11-E for access to everything in town + Johnson City + Erwin Highway. Third choice would be Hampton Inn, also by the Jameson Inn.  (Apr 7, 2012 | post #6)

best divorce lawyer in gville

That's the nature of an adversarial judicial system. Don't blame the lawyers, blame the system. Well, there are plenty of bad lawyers to blame, but there are good ones too. There is rarely something as a "slam dunk" case. If that were the case, trials and juries would not be needed. A good attorney should caution you that you don't have a good chance if you don't. If your attorney is saying it is an easy win, you need to find a new lawyer. In a lot of cases, for example, personal injury on a contingent fee, it is completely unprofitable and actually costs the lawyer a lot of his own money. So it is kind of ridiculous to think they would take a case such as that. Now winning as a criminal defendant in this town? Pretty much impossible because the judges are all good ole boys and buddies with the cops, so they always favor the prosecution and rarely follow the law. That is the nature of this town and the way our judicial system is. Sad, but true.  (Apr 7, 2012 | post #22)

government MAKE US??

That's what the law is trying to do. It is saying insurance companies have to start covering people with pre-existing conditions and can't discriminate against them by just dropping them when they get sick or denying them altogether b/c of the condition.  (Mar 28, 2012 | post #5)
