I know exactly where Bingo Zone is. When did the city of London annex that in ? That is Laurel County. The comment was no bingo hall in London and I stand by that statement, show me a bingo hall in London.
You stupid idiot, that bingo hall was in London and only moved because of the smoking ban!

Listen.. I like Jon Root.. Im a fan. However instead of busting up gambling rings he should have kept Dusty Lovett behind bars instead of letting him run free and steal everything people round here have... Like I said... I'm a fan and will indeed vote for John or Jon Root.. In no way am I disrespecting his authority.. But dusty will steal this county blind in a week..
What in the hell does John Root have to do with these guys once he puts their ass in Jail? Maybe you need to talk to preacher Jamie Mosely or someone in the court system you moron!!!!!!!!!!

I know why they moved, I still stand by the statement that there is no BINGO hall in LONDON. Your own statement says they WERE in London, but not now. Now who's your daddy ?

I voted for our wonderful Sheriff J.Root and I'm proud of him, glad he's doing away with the stupid illegal machines that our kids and parents play wasting their money on gambling and buying cigarettes and losing both ways when they need to be providing for their kids and grandchildren instead of playing and giving it to crooks that programs them to rip you off. Joe don't think of things like this in or tuff economy where in, all he thinks about is him self and Chris a padding their pockets wright Joe ? Put the root to them both, Lmao. PS: I love you John Root you are a wonderful Sheriff keep up the great work you have my vote and i got you many more votes to Sheriff thank you sir...

really.. Well if you don't like London then move. I am sure this bust had nothing to do about anyone hating anyone else. The only thing is hated by many in this town is the growing problem of drug use. This bust happened because it is was an illegal place of business, a gambling den. Gambling and drugs are against the law. John Root and his team were doing their job. John Root and his department have a war going on against drugs. So if any place is feeding, harboring or creating drug use then I suggest they stop. I agree with you to a point about minded your own business EXCEPT if your business is effecting others in a bad way. Then that is a different story.

whats really crazy bout all this is how stupid anyone could be did you ever think that that building was a place for people to socialize with out being out on the street and in to trouble i heard there were drugs involved but arent there drugs everywhere i bet if you go to walmart and drug tested 5 customers at least 3 of the drug test would not come back clean. Drugs are serious problem everywhere and just because you play the games does not mean you are on drugs. if that where try i guess everyone that plays the lottery is on drugs also........You want to know what the real problem is around here???????? HATERS thats right i said haters cuz if someone is mad at you they are gonna do their best to cause you and anyone around you problems..... 411 for all laurel county people KEEP YOUR NOSE IN YOUR OWN BUSINESS AND LEAVE EVERYONE ELSE ALONE. I think that would make laurel county a better place to live. At this moment i think anyone who passes through laurel cty has the soul sucked right out of them when i was a child i loved it here and now i cant wait to get away
