Maybey if "RJ" truly cared for you, he would have encouraged you to stay in school, or possibly "baught" you a dictionary.

I'd be afraid to give any money to anything connected to the Corman family. Odds are the FBI or ATF or soon to ask some questions!

People like to bash those they don't know and who have "made it" through hard work and good business sense. Mr Corman and his wife are not "fancy" people. They are very nice simple folks who worked hard for a living. I have had the opportunity to meet both of them and never made to feel that I was beneath them at all. I met them before they made the aquisitions they have now. Today they are the same people. Kudos to them for wanting to bring something new to Lexington - we do need that!! Do you know how many people have never had the opportunity to ride a train? It is an experience all should have. I am sure if a school system approached them for special rates they would make arrangements. Judge not lest ye be judged.

You are a idiot, the Cormans are an outstanding central Kentucky family who give back to the local community in a huge way.

It's sad that all the white trash is so upset with someone who has pulled themselves up by their bootstaps and made a huge success out of themselves. Would I rather see a rusted and disrepair bridge or a nice shinny red bridge with Corman painted on it, well that is just a stupid question to 99% of the people.

OMG yes! That was totally him! He said, "I think I'll have my employees go and get hurt just for the hell of it!"

Give me a break people. In a town full if drugs and trash, you'd THINK you would be a supporter of a man whose company employs many locals, treats and pays them well, and has a strict no smoking/drugs policy!

Yes, regular dinner train options in Lex and Bardstown can be pricey, but I don't know many places that offer a fine dining 4 course meal (Sorry, ordering an app, salad, entree, and dessert at Applebee's or JD Legends does NOT count as a quality 4 course meal) for less than 100 bucks at least... PLUS, he offers several special runs (like the Halloween and Christmas run) for families, Wine tasting and Bourbon runs, etc. for LESS.

I've never seen such whiners! Maybe the price is expensive because its supposed to be a high quality place where tshirts and jean shorts aren't considered fancy! Try McDonald's... I heard they have a great dollar menu...
