Wine distributor plans Greenwood warehouse

The country's largest wine and liquor distributor plans to open a new warehouse in central Indiana with more than 50 workers.

Southern Wine & Spirits plans to move into an existing building in Greenwood, although it will build new office space.

Mayor Charles Henderson tells the Daily Journal that Greenwood and Brownsburg had been competing for the new distribution facility. Henderson says the Miami-based company seems to have long-term plans for expanding its Indiana operations.

The company will spend about $4 million to prepare the warehouse, which it expects to open in July. The Daily Journal said Southern will hire 54 people with an average annual salary of $42,000.

Southern, which holds distribution agreements with alcohol manufacturers in 29 states, received approval to distribute alcohol in Indiana in November despite opposition from competitors that said it would drive smaller distributors out of business. In March, Indianapolis-based National Wine & Spirits announced plans to join forces with Dallas-based Republic National Distributing Co., the nation's second-largest wholesale beverage distributor.

The state Alcohol and Tobacco Commission approved Southern's application for permits after twice denying it permission to do business in Indiana.

    1. Those of you yelling to deport them all should at least understand that the law allows minors (if not from a bordering country) to argue for asylum. If you don't like the law, you can petition Congress to change it. But you can't blindly scream that they all need to be deported now, unless you want your government to just decide which laws to follow and which to ignore.

    2. 52,000 children in a country with a population of nearly 300 million is decimal dust or a nano-amount of people that can be easily absorbed. In addition, the flow of children from central American countries is decreasing. BL - the country can easily absorb these children while at the same time trying to discourage more children from coming. There is tension between economic concerns and the values of Judeo-Christian believers. But, I cannot see how the economic argument can stand up against the values of the believers, which most people in this country espouse (but perhaps don't practice). The Governor, who is an alleged religious man and a family man, seems to favor the economic argument; I do not see how his position is tenable under the circumstances. Yes, this is a complicated situation made worse by politics but....these are helpless children without parents and many want to simply "ship" them back to who knows where. Where are our Hoosier hearts? I thought the term Hoosier was synonymous with hospitable.

    3. Illegal aliens. Not undocumented workers (too young anyway). I note that this article never uses the word illegal and calls them immigrants. Being married to a naturalized citizen, these people are criminals and need to be deported as soon as humanly possible. The border needs to be closed NOW.

    4. Send them back NOW.

    5. deport now
