School Board
Jay Walker Friday September 26, 2014

The Warren County School Board says it plans to draft a letter to the McMinnville Board of Mayor and Aldermen, expressing concerns over a proposal to remove the distance requirement from the beer sales ordinance. The proposal, which passed first reading Tuesday night, would delete the 300-foot distance requirement from the place selling beer to the nearest church, school or kindergarten. Director of Schools Bobby Cox called the idea "troubling."
Every school board member agreed and approved the idea of sending a letter to the City Board, expressing the School Board's concerns about the proposal.
The amended ordinance will be up for another vote on second and final reading on October 14th.

 


UT Report Says Economy Improving
Friday September 26, 2014

A new report by the University of Tennessee says the state economy looks to be improving as the end of the year approaches.
This fall's Tennessee Business and Economic Outlook report says there are more jobs, the unemployment rate is trending down, and personal income is rising.
Tennessee's non-farm employment increased by 1.8 percent this year, according to the report, and a 1.6 percent increase is predicted next year.
The manufacturing sector has seen increased productivity, or fewer workers producing more. That is both good news and bad news for the economy. Manufacturing employment remains below pre-recession levels, but industry output has surpassed pre-recession production. Future manufacturing employment gains are expected to be slow.
Personal income for Tennesseans, or take-home pay, is expected to grow by 3.5 percent this year and 4.4 percent next year, slightly slower than the national growth level.

Schools Included in Ordinance
Jay Walker Thursday September 25, 2014

A measure that would do away with the distance requirement from a church with regard to beer sales would also include schools as well. That's according to Alderman Mike Neal, who voted against the proposal. Neal said the churches and schools were in the same ordinance which called for a 300 foot restriction between an establishment selling beer and the nearest church or school.
The Board of Mayor and Aldermen Tuesday night, by a 4-3 margin, voted to delete the distance requirement from the ordinance.
The vote comes up for final reading on October 14th.
