State Rep. Eddie Yokley, D-Greeneville, did not request that Cocke County be exempt from having the ability to license distilleries as stated in an Ear to the Ground item last week. In order for a county to license distilleries, the county had to ask to be put on the list. A spokesman said Yokley did not put Cocke County on the list to allow distilleries since he did not have a "green light" from the Cocke County Commission to do so. The legislation does allow Cocke County Commission to pass a resolution and apply to the Secretary of State's office to be included on the list of counties able to license alcohol distilleries.
