The GBPA is a joke and has been for some time. They should change their name to the Daniel Lady Farm Association. Thats all they care about anymore. They do almost nothing else in regards to other battlefield property. At least not to my knowledge. Also, if I am not mistaken, one of the backers of the casino has donated a lot of money to the GBPA. The present administration of the GBPA is not at fault. The organization went through a drastic change of leadership around 2001. The leaders of the organization from that time are the ones at fault, in my opinion, for the direction the GBPA has taken.
I find it hard to believe that the original organizers of the GBPA would be pleased with the present organizations stand on the casino.

Dude, Number one learn how to spell the things you are going to accuse others of. It is spelled greed. Now get a clue. Mrs. Paddock has a MORAL objection to legal gambling and she has a personal hatred of Mr. LeVan. This is nothing more than a witch hunt on her part complete with misinforming people outside of Adams County to gain support under the banner of "preservation". She does not really give a rip about preservation. And neither do you, you are just interested in trashing a local man that has WAY more money and class then either of you.
Spoken from a CASINO DOPE with no class. Now get back in the circle with the rest of the DUDES, LOL.

Where was the CWPT and NCG when the Country Club, which sits on Battlefield land, was sold to an investor for pennies on the dollar?

That might be how you do things in Jersey but here in Adams County PA most of us do not smear people's reputations without a little thing called PROOF. I guess in Jersey businesses are not allowed to turn a profit?

GBPA is the same organization that on a regular basis allows "ghost investigations" on the historic Daniel Lady Farm. Some "preservation" group. I think their reputation speaks for itself, the organization is a joke.

So preserving 2000 acres of the Gettysburg National Military Park is nothing? You do realize that is a third of the total park.

Ok, I just can't stop laughing, the idea that YOU of all people would criticize someone's SPELLING??? I suggest you go back to grade school and learn the difference between to, too, two/your, you're/there, their, etc. before you start throwing stones.

Also if I am not mistaken, if you are going to claim that one of the casino backers donated a lot of money to the GBPA you really should be able to back it up with proof. Only children and people that know they cannot accuse people without proof. Did Mrs. Paddock teach you that?

My check to them is in the mail. Someone actually doing something to preserve the battlfield. Where did NCG get all the money to print postcards, buy names, and postage on their little postcard mailings? Perhaps someone could enlighten us on donations and such.

Hey Baseball Mom, What the GBPA saved was all before they bought the Lady Farm east of town and before the 2001 change of leadership. My complaints against them stem from the 2001 time period. Since 2002 they have done nothing to preserve anyother part of the battlefield other than the Lady Farm. The CWPT had to buy the last two houses along the Emittsburg Road in front of Little Round Top that came for sale because the GBPA did nothing. They also did nothing when a large parcel across from Herr's Ridge Tavern came for sale. All they care about is that farm. Also, one of the past presidents of the organization installed her son as caretaker of the farm. My point? The leaders of the GBPA after 2001 had only selfish motives to maintain the farm and did so at the expense of ignoring other important properties that came for sale.
As for the point that one of the backers donated large amounts of money to the GBPA you are correct. I have no written proof. I know my source and, IN MY OPINION, I have chosen to belive them.
CHAO BABY!

If you disagree with how the GBPA runs things then maybe you should get involved. It is awfully easy to sit and run your mouth about how things should be done but quite another to actually do something about it. Thanks for your OPINION on a rumor.

GO Gburg Baseball Mom!!! I agree with this 100% From bad spelling to Paddock's pure hatred. It has nothing to do with preservation of anything but her own reputation. How selfish/greedy is that?

Really? How much money do you think the CWPT and the other national groups associated with NCG have raked in by duping their membership?

The CWPT has taken in thousands upon thousands of dollars to "save Gettysburg" and yet all they have managed to do is 698 acres. Kind of pales in comparison to the 2000 that the GBPA has preserved. Kind of makes you wonder where all the money the CWPT collects actually goes. Hmmmmmmmm.

LOL!!Mrs. Babseball Mom, if I got involved in everything I had an opinion about I would have no time for work. Your point is well taken. However, the GBPA is not an organization I would want to be a part of. It does not appeal to me in any way. If I were to join a preservation organization it would be the CWPT. Perhaps I will do that. My wife is already a member. Perhaps we can get a family membership. Thanks for the idea.
You know, in the long run all this bickering we do on here and boards like this one is useless. The Pa Gaming Control Board will decide the matter. Most have probably already made up their mind. Nothing we say or do here will change it.
