The Kingsport paper reports on a recent local government meeting at which Jonesville residents questioned proposed road name changes. Included among the citizen comments was this: "Allen Minor questioned why two streets named after his daughters had to be renamed and countered the argument that streets bearing personal names often had signs stolen with the argument that signs had never been stolen on Linda and Elaine streets. Minor said he donated the right of way for the streets and dedicated the names for his daughters, and he did not believe the streets should be renamed."
I'm with him all the way, not that I'm entirely sure who he is, but he must be related. In fact, there should be more streets in Jonesville named for Minors.
