John Sterling said he’s all about being a good neighbor.
Tell that to the folks nearby.
Some of them didn’t like the idea of him getting a special-use permit to allow firearm training on his property at 3997 Sugar Grove Valley Road.
Sterling stated his case for the permit Wednesday evening before the Roane County Board of Zoning Appeals.
Neighbors showed up to argue against it. In the end, the board denied his request by a 4-0 vote.
