The “Restore,” similar to one the Decatur-Morgan County Habitat has operated for three years, would be located in the old  Clem Tire Building on Washington Street, across fiom the Limestone County Commission office.  The building is owned by First Presbyterian Church.  Habitat Director Garth Lowom Jr. said Monday he does not know how long it would take to get the store up and running subsequent to possible city approval.  “We have to figure out where we’ll get the start-up capital,” said Lowom. “Opening a store from scratch is pretty difficult.”  The store will not be a so-called “thrift” store, but rather a dealer in used appliances, building materials, tools and other household items, such as lighting fixtures, he said.  “This is a re-sale store for  when someone is replacing their doors and windows and wants to donate them to us,” said Lowom. “We pretty much use up all of our materials in construction, but we are hoping that contractors and stores will donate discontinued items. There is no telling where we can get deals.”  See Restore, page 3A  Going, going ... nearly gone  Day 8, south side  NEWS COURIER/JEAN COLE  Old county jail demolition to be complete in a few more days  By Jean Cole    County    Jail?  iean^athensnews-amrier.com    They    are    free    for    the    taking,  For the holidays, what do you said Brent Blackmon of MC Con-get the man who has everything? tracting LLC of Fackler, the com-How about a door from one of the ceUs of the old limestone    See    Jail,    page    3A  PHOTO COURTESY OF ADVANCED CONCEPTS  Day 12, south side from bucket truck  NEWS COURIER/JEAN COLE  Man questions lack of county noise control  By Karen Middletqn  karen @a thensne ws-courier. com A new resident of Limestone County questioned Commissioners Monday about why the county does not have a noise ordinance.
