Too much crack, Crackhead Joe!
EVERYONE with at least a 9th grade education (which I assume you do not have the equivalent of) knows that Gettysburg has two colleges, both of which are internationally esteemed institutions.
By the way, you forgot to empty my trash can at the courthouse. Please don't let it happen again.
That's real funny. I live around here and never once heard anything about the Gettysburg College basketball, baseball, or track programs. Do they even have a sports program? I have 21 college credits but have never heard of a sports program at Gettysburg College. I don't even know of anyone that goes there.

You must be so much smarter than I.

Strange, the other communities in the state with casinos aren't reporting these problems that you are speculating. But then again I guess it is like the NCG crowd say, the police and district attorney offices are either lying or have been paid off.

I understand that the decision has been made, and was made back in November, but the board is getting so much free entertainment reading some of these post that they are going to hold off as long as they can before they announce it.

I understand one of the board said that those people from out of town posting about Mason Dixon are a laugh a day, and he doesn't want to stop it.

Could be years till they announce it.

Can't you casino and no-casino jokers just rent a hotel together and kick the shi_ out of each other rather than hijack threads that have absolutely nothing to do with a casino?

That is the joke. GBurg will have millions more than that in costs from uninsured DUI INJURIES in your hospital and law enforcement costs for the Armed robberies and burglaries. Laugh at a million. Tell LeVan it is seven million with 5 percent annual increase and ownership reverts to the town in seven years at a price of two times revenue. Watch him run like a cat at a fireworks display...
Highway construction, just keep adding it up , to a small town being conned by an operator far slicker than you or the Local officials who have spent you into bankruptcy and taxation. The jobs could offset some costs .... But the national outrage at such an enterprise will be a disgusting legacy for a place not considered Sacred by the Locals. Americans who visit are the real constituency.
"Americans who visit are the real constituency"? Then please do provide us with your address so that we can send you your tax bills.

If you are so concerned about the hijacked thread why don't you try to redirect instead of stirring the pot?

This thread said they polled "tourists" and they did not appear to be bent out of shape about the ticket price. That's just a few, what about when the 150th Civil War events start this summer? The toss up being, stay in a bed and breakfast (my choice) or vist these attractions that raised their prices. I rather stay in a quaint B&B and explore the area, than wander through concrete buildings. Guess we'll see the tally profit at the end of the event season this year. ROCK ON!!

It is a college town, after all.
So, if a town has a college, does that make it a college town? I never heard of York as being a college town. Never thought of Lancaster a college town either.

Now Kutztown is a college town. The college is about the only thing there. When you hear of Kutztown, right away you will think of the college.

If a casino is built, will it be a casino town? Hmmmmmmmmmmmm.
I would guess it depends on how you use the term. If you say “College Town”, meaning a town with a college in it, Gettysburg is a “College Town”. If you use say “College Town” and mean a town where the college dominates everything, and everything evolves around that is happening at the college, no Gettysburg is not a “College Town.” However I believe during the winter months when tourism is down, I believe college students make up around 20% of the towns population

The Battlefield and Gettysburg National Military Park will fortunately or unfortunately dominate the town. And many times the town is controlled by activities of the National Park and the historic activities.

As to Gettysburg becoming a “casino town”. Again how do you use the term. If you are talking about a town where activities of the casino dominate the town, and that is the only or primary reason people visit. Gain the battlefield and National Park will be the primary reason people continue to visit Gettysburg, and not the casino. The casino will be a side attraction for those who wish to visit. If you use the phrase “casino town” to refer to a town with a casino in it, again no because the casino is not and will not be located in Gettysburg, it is in Cumberland Township.

But I am sure some will use that term, especially those who currently oppose the casino in Cumberland Township.

A college as well as the Lutheran seminary. But if their existence is mere mythology because not many people know they are, I'm not sure what to say. Reality is, they are there, they are a major part of the town, and the students do what students do.

You live "around where?" And where are your measly 21 credits from there Mr. Ivy League?(You do know what Ivy League is, right?)

You've never heard of ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT. That is why you don't know there are TWO colleges in the town you pretend to "live around".

With a meager 21 credits it sounds like you neither have the academic credentials nor the athletic talent to go to college unless somebody pays your way!

That is a point of interest, is it a college town, if a college of any academic is located there? Would you consider anytown USA a college town if it had a massage college within it's limits? We have colleges here, but I don't feel that the Springs is known for it's colleges. As it is for the Air Force Academy or the Garden of the gods natural park. Will Gettysburg be known for the Historic Battlefield as it presently is , if a casino is located there? It may all depend on your choice for visiting Gettysburg. I would visit Lancaster for the Amish culture, not the college. There is my choice....ROCK ON!

I live in Adams County and never heard about Gettysburg College sports on TV. You know...like on the 5 o'clock news? Measly 21 credits? Nothing wrong with that....

I can transfer my credits to almost any college or do a challenge test. Sounds like you think you are better than anyone else. Are you lonely at the top?
