The developer of the proposed shopping center in Straban Township is also requesting TIF assistance. Do you support this proposal as well?

Yes, I've always supported TIF if it would bring quality businesses to town.

I htought I had made that obvious a while ago

Even if those businesses are not historically relevant?

If they were quality bsuinesses that would benefit the community. We don't need any trashy little stores giving the town a plastic trinket appearance

So you are OK with a Super Wal-mart or chain restaurant at the site of the proposed shopping center?

It all should be in keeping with the history of the area. The zoning should be changed to only include businesses that are tied to our history. Wamart, chain resturants and shopping centers have a place, just not in Gettysburg. The aea should be reverted back to the 1800's and everyone should be required to wear period costumes to delight the tourists.

These hick morons already wear period dress: current-day hillbilly gear. Boots with horse manure in the treads, plaid flannel, blue jeans. Dumb locals.

Unfortunatly Gettysburg is a tourist town that relies on the "atmosphere" of the area to attract people to come and spend time and money. With locals not getting into the spirit of the history it only detracts from the image of the community.

Absolutely untrue. Gettysburg and it's history are important, but it's not the only game in town. Guess you didn't hear about the record turnout for Apple Harvest Festival this year? Did you go? Yes, people DO come to Gettysburg for things besides the battlefield. And people do live, work and raise their families here. What would cause this town to fail would be trying to keep this area like 1863. BTW, I did notice that you skirted the question I posed to you in post #6 of this thread. So how about an answer?

I believe I addressed that question and answered it sufficiently. Obviously, you didn't like what I posted so you chose to ignore it, pity.
We need to keep Gettysburg historically correct. Unfortunatly, there have been to many years of those who were, "asleep at the wheel" so to speak and allowed undersirable businesses to infiltrate sacred land. Its time those types of businesses should be removed and zoning laws be tightened to only allow history themed businesses in the area. These businesses need to enhance the history and not detract from it

The truth is that most visitors to Gettysburg today are not purists, and enjoy other attractions besides those which you consider acceptable. I would also love to hear your rationalization of how a huge housing development would be considered historically correct and a shopping center is not. Ready, set, go!

Stupid hick, your town bites wind. Apple Picking Festival? Really? You're counting on that?

You'd be better off taking the Gettysburg Child Rapists on an autograph signing tour of Denmark and Thailand.

the ones that continually tell you how I have my finger on the pulse of Gettysburg. My vast knowledge on matters in around Gettysburg has made me a valued part of the community.
After those in local government discovered that I am a direct descendant of a famous Civil War figure its no wonder my staus in around the community was elevated to such a high level.
Some, such as yourself, try to discredit me but I won't be deterred by petty squabbling by some locals. I realize its done out of jealousy, and don't let it bother me.

If you are such an important and valued member of the community, why is it nobody has ever heard of you here?

I haven't heard anyone here making any of the statements you have been making, and I am sure if they had, it would have made the local newspapers, especially with your claimed relationship to a "famous Civil War" figure.

Child Rape makes the local newspapers because Gettysburg Men have done a lot of child molesting and other forms of sexual abuse lately in Gettysburg.

What kind of town counts on an Apple Picking Festival for its economic well-being? A desperate cesspool with NO other options: Gettysburg.

What kind of moron champions these little meaningless flea markets and bake sales in a lame attempt to make Gettysburg look good? You: a dumb hick.
