I dont think the word "best" is the proper context. If one is the best he musts be better than all other west virginians. He is a member of this community whoh has done extraordinary things to change our community and help the citizens in it. He is man, a member of my church, lives in a modest $200,000 home in town in lewisburg close to the elementary school. Coaches the basketballl teams at our high school. He is a wondeful pillar of our small community. I don't think it's appropriate to call him the best West Virginian though. He is the 375th riches man in America worth kust over $1.1 Billion dollars according to Forbes magazine. He came from a lower class coal mining family and built everything that he has on his own, besides the help from his father through inheritence which is custom for all american families. There will come a day when he has touch all of our lives for the good in one way or another, Remember that. Many people from this local culure are raised to despize the wealthy as the enemy. This is simply a prejudice that arose from misunderstanding of people of difference. I think that he ios the greatest leader that West virginia has had in my lifetime and maybe the last 200 years.

Then why does he not pay his bills? He has almost bankrupted several businesses, and certainly a lot of employees that USED to work at the Greenbrier. I VOTE NO!

It remains to be seen whether the Greenbrier will be a success story or not. My understanding is that there is a 10 mil short fall for the first quarter (2012). A lot of ppl, myself included, see a lot of foolishness in the way the Hotel is being managed. Time will tell if it's just that 'we' don't get the big picture but, atm, things are worse than ever. There are also rumors that Justice has been scouting for outstanding basketball players whose families he gives employment in the area so that they'll qualify for his team. I hope that's not true but if it is it indicates a lack of ethics and sense of fair play.

That's because people can't get off of welfare and get a job or pass a drug test. So they have no choice but to bring them in and help during the busy season.. They're good workers and never cause any harm but good

Must be another one of those hipocrits of the GBR. drink, cuss and hoo doo everyone today and pretend, then ask for forgiveness and then repeat again on Monday, yes that sounds about right, while all honest hillbillies continue to do right by their neighbors and co workers, friends and family, you all are the disgusting ones,yes make $150,000 but you cannot take it with you, oh by the way don't think you can stop by the bank on the way to Hell and use the ATM, you came with nothing you will leave with nothing. Hopefully you minister will tell you the same when you take your dead butt to church this morning, Oh and by the way I Love you brother! Have a wonderful Sunday!
