Whatever happened to the new bowling alley (and other gripes).

Let's get real, it's been since late 2007 that Vicksburg has gone without a set of bowling lanes. This is just crazy. A good alley could attract so many people, as well as give the local youths something to do. If the person that was interested in opening the bowling alley still can't get his stuff in gear, Vicksburg city leaders need to see about finding someone else who can. There has been NOTHING said on this topic that I can find in recent months. Not since the middle of 2009, do I remember hearing anything.

It is just crazy that a town of this size, on a main thoroughfare, does not have more going for it for tourists besides a military park and 5 (yes FIVE) casinos. There are a ka-jillion hotel rooms, yet no decent "named" place to eat (ideal for tourists who don't know about the local places). Come on Vicksburg, let's get moving (no, I'm not related to Hayyyley).

I believe that I heard it said that plans had been scratched due to the statistics of the goings-on of the old bowling alley. That the only way to ensure the crime rate does not increase, as with the other, was to locate it in a high profile or upscale shopping area. I do not know whether they meant an area of the outlets or where?
