Maybe someone should have ask in just how far they are apart. His thing was to address the comments made about his home town. And he stated that the casino has increased foot traffic in the down town area, which would be good news for the down town Gettysburg.
He also stated that visitation is up for the VNMP so that sounds good for the park also.
Re: Tony...Did you read the paper In this very post Mayor Winfield states it is approx 3.5 mi to nearest casino from the battlefields. Mason Dixon will be nearly 2 mi so whats the prob? It does not touch any battlefield grounds and there are numerous business on the pike that are bordering the park as well as in the park! Please read and do research before posting.

Although there are many good debates on this forum, there are also offensive ones. The Civil War divided this Nation brother against brother neighbor against neighbor. The Pro emancipation and the No emancipation. Now here at the Mason Dixon Line and Adams Co we have the Pros vs the No's. We fight and debate with words, sometimes lies and misleading statements to make our side go to higher grounds. The problem here is when in the year 2010 we use racial bigotry slurs and throw foul language around to people we do not know or even met. It seems to me that it is time to take a higher moral ground and act educated and refined. Can we not debate our stance and agree to disagree? No one is right or wrong. It is what it is. Your opinion is what you feel and believe. Fine, Great! I respect both sides of the fence when it comes to feelings and opinions. I do not however condone or anticipate the name calling and continuance of lies and unfair tactics. If I do bother to come back to do any forum I hope it is in the future a respectable common decency platform no matter what you feel or believe. "Now, Go play nice children!"

<quoted text>THE FACTS ARE--it was placed before the taxpayers in the form of a referendum .The taxpayers voted it in . So get your FACTS correct. It wasn't an overnight deal either. This all took over 10 years as the town is below the poverty level. Oh my, what am I saying ? Adams County by per capita income is now the lowest county in all 63 of Pa. We are the poorest. Gettysburg Borough, per the bond rating system couldn't get credit if the sewer rats were unionized and rich. Cumberland Township is now teetering on possible collapse by the taxpayers since Utah's Flo Ford acted like Obamma and spent money they did not have. So we now seek either secession or become Incorporated.
I live in Adams County (Conewago Township) and do not remember any such referendum while voting, and I've never missed an election. Was the referendum limited to voters of Gettysburg and/or Cumberland Township? I just would like the facts of when that took place! Thanks.

The original poster does not deal in reality. It did not take place. There was no referendum.
