Though you claim not to be confrontational, you are indeed. I was surprised at your statement that you "sat in." When you were at Days Inn, I was appalled at your unprofessional behavior time and again. If this is the type of people the commissioners relied on, it is no wonder that they are now in litigation. They are way out of their league, and have shown that time and again with their foolish choices.

I swear I will never understand some people in this County. It seems like every time an effort is made to bring in new jobs and more opportunities, someone wants to thwart it. There is certainly room for Atwood Lodge in Dellroy, and Day's Inn, in Carrollton.

I had no part in helping the commissioner.I sat in on the application process to lease the property. It is my opinion. Why should my tax dollars fund his litigation, whoever you are?

People in this county want want want and want. When you bring them something, they bitch, bitch, bitch. People in this county you cannot change. I agree with the writer if this letter and all the others who commented. Carroll County needs to get away from the "Good Old Boy" network because they are all passing away. It is time for Carroll County to move forward. They have been stuck in the past to long.

I whole heartedly agree with Margie!! I have lived here my entire life and can no longer keep quiet. We need Atwood Lodge open and thus providing jobs and bringing awareness of our county to outside people. How many businesses have tried to come into Carroll County over many years here like new grocery stores, walmart, restaurants, etc. and have been ran off by a few greedy business owners who did not want the competition? We have plenty of need for more businesses but will still support our old faithfuls. Oh and the tax dollars generated by the oil and gas leases on the property at Atwood goes into a special fund which can only be used for that land and facilities. The monies from oil and gas lease dollars are not available to go into our general fund.

this lawsuit was about the stupidest thing that days inn could have done. They actually were here first, what if they would have tried to stop you days inn, and the people who funded it to come here?

We need so much change in this county it isn't funny, first thing to do is get a prosecutor that will fight for peoples rights and not have deputies tell you cases are for civil court all the time. Especially for falsifing sheriff reports.

I have lived here for 18 years and still get blamed for things that are heresay and I still see people like this fighting for stupid reasons. If the people don't see it now, this is the same reasons that chesepake moved their business OUT OF VILLAGE LIMITS. Time to get away from THE GOOD-OLE BOYS NETWORK and work together.
