For 34 years, the only fixture more permanent in the Cork and Bottle liquor store than owner Roy Southard was a chair next to the counter. Anyone who sat in that chair, whether it was one of Southard’s many nieces and nephews or a regular customer, was likely to be treated to a piece of life advice or an old fishing tale.
