And I am sure all of those who opposed the casino just north of the line, would enjoy seeing signs all over the area advertising a casino just over the line in Maryland. And those businesses that opposed it will not mind at all people going to Frederick county for their meals rather than Gettysburg.
And I am not sure of the selection procedure in Maryland, but I am sure the name Gettysburg would not have the protection there that it did in Pennsylvania.
I believe in Maryland the people of the affected county get to vote.
I do believe that Gettysburg would enjoy some of the trickle down benefits from a casino just across the line. And if it is located in Maryland it may prompt local investors to consider other types of entertainment to the local area. Since the majority of tourists to the area are casual tourists the more variety of attractions you have here it just is common sense that they will stay longer. I believe it would bring a boost to the local economy as well as jobs to the area. It would not, however, bring casino revenue to the state.

Its OK we understand you'll just blame it on the history and tourists, who I might add were there long before you arrive on the scene.

I believe you should work on your reading and comprehension skills. The poster neither said or insinuated anything of the sort.

Observer I believe you should also work on your reading and comprehension skills. Better yet, why don't you work on Gettysburg's issues of finding decent employers to come to town. So, now that NO casino is headed your way, what are your plans to revive Gettysburg's lagging economy? Anything Observer, anything at all? Come one big boi you can think of something can't you? I always thought you were the matermind of Gettysburg. At least that's what was written on the bathroom walls.

Hey I thought the indoor water park was a GREAT idea. But its the locals that should know what is and isn't going on within their community. They are the ones whom should open their mouths and give their opinions. If the powers that be don't agree with what the community wants, then who voted them in? Vote them out and get people in their that share their ideas.
All I ever read is alot of garbage on here. Instead of bashing everyone and spewing their hate they need to WORK ON THEIR COMMUNITY!! The history was there before any of them, they need to realize that won't change. Now, what they need to do is work around that history, preserving it and by also moving forward as well.
And yet again for the God knows how many times I'll ask the same question which NONE of the posters, Nile, GBM, Observer etc will answer. Now what? What are your plans to bring businesses to Gettysburg now that a casino won't happen? Did any of them think there was a possiblity they might not have been awarded it? Do they have any other ideas?

Who says a casino won't happen? While the most recent proposal wasn't awarded to Gettysburg there is nothing saying that a casino in the area won't be awarded at some time in the future. If not in PA, then in MD. And, IF that ever happens I believe it will be located in a spot where Gettysburg and all it has to offer will be one of the calling cards to attract patrons to the casino. Like I said before, money talks, and if MD starts looking seriously at a casino close to Gettysburg I believe that PA will take a hard look at Gettysburg and the potential revenue it will generate. One only has to look at the success of casinos and Vicksburg to understand that history and gambling can cohabit quite nicely. The precedent has been set.

That being said, I don't think anyone in Gettysburg is sitting back licking their wounds and complaining because a casino didn't come. Your close minded, opinionated musings doesn't translate into fact,no matter how much you wish it would.

I'm satisfied with the contributions I am making to the local economy. I don't need your approval. But thanks for your concern,as insincere as it may be.

Hey, by the way, how's that buffer bill coming along? Good luck trying to extend it beyond state lines.

Pink Eye, the Water park Would have been a plus to the town. Restaurants, B&B's, hotels and motels and all stores of every venue WOULD OF HAD a piece of the pie. Plus it was a Year round business, so the locals ad well as the tourists WOULD have enjoyed this attraction. So, the possibility of a Casino being built in MD..would be close enough to Gettysburg, so the town may reap some of rewards. Hmmmm, BUT..NO direct sales tax dollars WOULD be guaranteed in Gettysburg, if a casino was awarded in MD. In order for THAT to happen, the casino WOULD have to be located IN Gettysburg. I think at the NEXT Town Meeting.. the citizens SHOULD state WHAT businesses they WOULD like to see in Gettysburg. AFTERALL, they are taxpayers!!!

Ya know Pink Eye, restaurants are fine for employment.. as well as gas stations and hotels.. BUT Gettysburg needs to stretch it's horizon of attracting businesses WHO will ADD NOT only tax dollars to the town.. BUT appeal for tourists to come in the winter time... don't ya think??

A casino in the area won't happen there's been to much good opposition to it. If the locals aren't willing to step up to the plate and save their community, then lets get outsiders to do it. Again, I doubt very much a casino is coming to Gettysburg at any time in the future. With that being stated yet again,I'm wondering what the local community is doing to attract GOOD employers to the area.
I'm sure you're happy with your contributions your making to the community. Most people are that have little to offer but consider themselves a real asset. You might want to consider looking up the word ASSET in the dictonary and see if the word really does apply to you and your situation. From where I sit I can say that it doesn't, but what ever makes you feel important go with it.

An indoor waterpark would be a bonus to the community. Although SOME locals frown on the entire tourist thing, its what Gettysburg has to offer. The waterpark is something that not every community has like a mall, shoppes etc.
An indoor water park would attract other supporting businesses like resturants, motels etc. Look at Cabela's in Hamburg and all the businesses that have sprung up around it, and the jobs its brought. Agreed they aren't high paying jobs, but they're jobs just the same. Something is better then nothing

Locals don't seem to care about the casino Pinky. They haven't in some time. Truth is you seem more upset than they are. I mean, you're the only one who's still bringing it up almost 2 years later. They care so little about it I had to starting making up wild crime stories about gangs in an attempt to goad them. You're the only one still harping on the casino and complaining. Keep up the good work.

Opposition never had anything to do with the decisions made by the PGCB. Especially yours. But keep fighting for that buffer bill that will never see the light of day and if by some fluke it does will almost guarantee a casino right across the PA border.

I know of at least two new business coming to the area that will add several hundred jobs in the county.

I don't have to look up the word ASSETS to know I have way more than you, in both tangible and contributions to the community in which I live. I know who you are, remember.
