When was the last time you visited the .5 mile surrounding the Eisenhower Inn Complex?
I'm guessing by your post, never.
You seem like a pro responder but are missing the point of the first post in this chain. He is mocking how out of the way this place is. SARCASM

Me learning to "deal with change" doesn't have anything to do with this mistake.
As for the bikers patronizing this mistake; there is nothing wrong with them being in Gettysburg. The problem is their attitude that because they are making illegal noise we are to just put up with that too. Guess who is bringing both of these bad ideas to Gettysburg?
If he is so concerned about how Gettysburg perceives him why does he just constantly do whatever he wants and we are to just put up with it? Don't give me that song and dance that gambling is now legal--he lost the first one because we do not want him and his problem people ---that has not changed and never will no matter how many times he tries to convince the Gaming Board he wants what HE wants in Gettysburg and to hell with everyone else.
I get the impression they don't like his attitude either.
Its hardly a song and dance. Gambling is legal, he will be able to do what he wants, like I said, if not now, soon.

This is not about what you want, nor should it be. Its his property, its his hotel, if you don't like it, move.

It's ignorant statement, from ignorant people like yourself that taint the NCG group as a bunch moral high ground, bible thumping NIMBY's.
My My Leeds--we will see who is the ignorant one in a few months.

Keep the compliments coming--the Gaming Hearig board will get to see all this garbage--you know sticks and stones and all that stuff.

How juvenile.....

I can always tell when I have hit a nerve.

Facts:
**In 1976, a national commission found that 0.77% of the adults in the U.S., about 1,100,000 Americans, were pathological gamblers.
**By 1994, a considerable body of evidence showed that the expansion of legalized gambling destroys individuals, wrecks families, increases crime, and ultimately costs society far more than the government makes.
**In Iowa, the legalization of casinos more than tripled the addiction dilemma. A study released in July, 1995, found that 5.4% of the state's adults (roughly 110, 000 residents) are lifetime pathological or problem gamblers. Before riverboats came to the state, 1.7% of Iowans fell into this category.
**In Louisiana, four years after the state legalized casinos and slots, a study found that seven percent of adults had become addicted to gambling.
**In Minnesota, as 16 Indian casinos opened across the state, the number of Gamblers Anonymous groups shot up for one to 49.
**According to Howard J. Shaffer, director of the Harvard Medical School Center for Addiction Studies, "Today, there are more children experiencing adverse symptoms from gambling than from drugs... and the problem is growing."
**Despite laws in Atlantic City restricting casino gambling to people 21 or older, a survey of teenagers at Atlantic City High School revealed that not only had 64% gambled in a local casino, but 40% had done so before the age of 14.

The expectant mother has every reason to be concerned for the future generation that she's raising. Her defense of beliefs and morals are no different than those of you that are penny slot pushers. I support what she has said and could not agree more! I don't want this future for my children either.
And wow,the use of Ms. Paddock's quote out of context is a real rebel yell for you that support the MDC. Truthfully, I was pretty apathetic about the whole casino situation until reading some of ProCasino Rubbish over the weekend. Now, well now I assure you as a local constituent my voice will be heard by my representatives regularly, clearly and concisely; I DO NOT WANT A CASINO IN THE GETTYSBURG ZIP CODE :)
And to make matters worse, some of the work that I do (although all NCG supporters are supposedly retired) is research. So I will be most happy to continue to provide a few factoids on a regular basis for all of you to try to rebuke.
So make no mistake:
1) I do not care one way or another for Mr. LeVan. This isnt personal but a passionate plea to leave this issue alone once and for all. No one wanted this gambling goop before and the majority do not want it now.
PLEASE, put it to a vote!!!
2) I strongly disagree with putting a casino in proximity of the battlefield. Have we forgotten that it is also the Eisenhower Farm?
3) I strongly believe the funds that all think will be the salvation of this county are a gamble and we would do better to look at existing merchants and help them as well as explore long term profitable business ventures that dont create a sickness or pox upon the community.
4) I dont have tons of free time but I will make sure to allocate as much as possible to spreading the No Casino word.
And I don't think that I am alone...
P.S.- Zippy the Paddocks have the majority of their acreage in the land conservancy and have contingency building (as in something like one house per 10 acres)on the few lots that are for sale. Fact check yourself as you go by the town homes in Fairfield that have yet to be sold and will wind up housing more people than the Paddocks' lots. atter of fact, please give the Paddocks a call on their listed number or call their realtor yourself if you would like a "fact check." See you at the meetings!
**2010 In York, PA. I don't give a rat's ass about these statistics. People that are gambling addicts already have the outlets in place (Hollywood, Charlestown, etc.) to satisfy their addictions. Keep grasping
